The objectiohal article reads aB follows: "THe attention of the authorities waB. brought yesterday to a sensa tional stunt in frenzied finance in which former Patrolman Joe Jarvis' and Mike Byrne wet? the principals. The pair' conceived the idea thatv Byrne should be reimbused for taxes "on 13 acres of land located near the red light district and Saturday night, it is claimed, they visited the places in the vicinity and sought to compel owners' ot the resorts to contribute to the cause.

Jy ft The town of Beaudette is experienc ing a boom from the fact that a great FLAY IX SCHOOL WORK. of Importance of Regulating Games Physical Culture of Children^ That at a certain stage in the educa tion of the child stress should be placed on physical, rather than mental exercise and training, by regulating and systematizing play and alternat ing it with class work, is the belief of Professor (Tyler, as expressed in a recent lecture before*.the Twentieth Century Club in Boston, reported in the Boston Evening Transcript. He says: "We have all noticed that children's plays change as they'grow older. Dr. .Gullclf tells us that the plays of chil dren under seven or eight are non competitive a.nd non-co-operatlve. Kindergarten children play side by side or in pairs, rarely* spontaneously in groups. They are gregarious rath er than social. The plays between the ages of seven and twelve are social, co-operative and competitive games, but each chHd usually plays for him self. After twelve group games with opposing sides ar^ more popular, and finally tend to crofcd out all others." Dr. Tyler took up particularly the co-operative and competitive plays be tween 7 and 12, such, as tag, hide-and seek, and running games, followed by various throwing games amkothers which "stumps" or challenges are the chief feature. Inquiring what may be their educational. value he concludes that it is flvehoid. Firstly, these gameB or plays have hygienic value, as they .exercise the greatest amount of musculan tissue with tlie least ex penditure of nervous energy, periods of activity' alternating frequently with periods of rest as is best for the or ganism. Secondly, they involve men tal traiqlng Jocusing the attention, re quiring "instant decision and action, and encouraging self-reliance and the development of initiative. Thirdly, they gave the child "his first lessons in "the art of forming friendships, the greatest art or science in the weTrld." Fourthly, they' furnish the first real |nd spontaneous moral distinction made in. childhood, that between "falr nesV and "unfairness." Fifthly, they 4 give a high degree of enjoyment—a very important feature in all train ing. "Opportunity," we ate told by Professor TyJer, is a higher wOrd even than "duty" and opportunities must be enjoyed. 'He goes on to say: "What w& need ,is not to crush out play or its spirit, but somehow to get more of the, spirit and/enthusiasm of the playground' into our work. But if play is the most valuable of all forms of exercise place and time must be found tor it, g.ven if niupbers and lan gteage have to wait But those who have ,$fed to do with half-time schools report that the children generally make about as1 much progress in half,, a .day as in-^ whole one.

He should not, and can not, at this age, exercise his mental powers more than during the time spent in class work.' This gives him more than enough. He returns to his desk for book work. Every muscle ir. his body is tingling and twitching for exercise. But he must sit still. The problem which he has to solve is really this: How to forget his dis comfort, and remain quiet and pretend to look at his book, and not to do any mental work. I can conceive of no .better method of insuring that the child shall form habits of dawdling and calling it study. After two or three years of such practice genuine study becomes almost or quite impossible. If play is always a privilege and re ward, and study always a required duty, can we wonder that the child learns to look upon study as an un necessary evil? "The length and frequency of play periods must be determined by experi ment The best results require that the play should be at fixed times al ternating with the class work. The same results cannot be gained by dis missing the children a half1 hour earl ier, and having them scatter to their homes. School gardens may be equaU ly useful.- Manual training- and gym nastics have their place and are need ed, but seem somewhat better suited to 'a little later age. But play has its own place apart from or in addition to these. The vital point is thait at this age the emphasis should be placed on physical rather than on mental ex ercise and training." DUE TO SEEDLESS OBAKGE. Millions of California's Wealth Have Been Made by Luscious Fruit. The introduction of the seedless navel orange has revolutionized the orange industry of the United States, It has 'drawn 13,000 men from other pursuits and transformed vast areas of sunbaked land in California into orange groves. It has been the prime factor in the growth of a dozen townq of 5,000 and 10,000 persons in South ern California and has added directly more than $43,000,000 and indirectly $60,000,000 more to the taxable wealth of the .state. The first seedless orange trees were apparently freaks of nature and their counterparts have never been found. Early in the '70's William Judson. United States Consul to Bahia, Brazil, heard an account from ^natives of a few trees lit the swamps-on the. banks of toe Amazon, some '60 miles away. He sent' a native up the river' to get some of the fruit and to bring him some of the shoots ot the t,ree.v When the native returned the Consul was delighted with the specimens and sent six df the shoots, carefully pack ed in moss and clay, to the Department of Agriculture at Washington. The trees did not excite much Interest at the department Two whlbh were planted, lit the department grounds died tor lack of care and the others were forgotten for months: Four, cuttings were planted again in •^'4' w$ SiM .-. •, »j.( A?hi'«H• TEE EVENING TIMES, GRAND FORKS, N.

Five years passed and the two remaining shoots came into bearing, These 16 seedless oranges were the ever raised in the United States, specimens were carried about about Southern California and shown to ranchmen .and fruit raisers. Thq second crop waij awaited with great curiosity, for it Was feared that in a few years the fruit would become hard ,and tough. There were about a box of oranges in the second yield and they were, even better than the first crop. The planting ot groves of seedless or anges propagated from the buds from the two original trees began in earn est in 1882. The following year the demand for buds from the Tlbbet trees was so large that a dozen buds sold frequently for $5 and some growers paid even as high as $1 apiece for them. first The NEWS AND NOTES OF SPORT. Jesse Burkett says that he will spend $12,000 on stands and grounds at Worcester, Mass., for his recently purchased Concord team of the New England league.

The seeds were put in double sacks and went di rect to their destination.

Bismarck and Minot are to be con nected by rail this year. The Sop has filed notice with the secretary of state of its intention to build a branch westward from a point on its main line between Anamoose £nd Voltaire (probably Voltaire) to or near the town of Bye In southern Ward countly, which is about thlrty flve miles northwest of Garrison.

From this it is promised the "Voltaire" branch will run from that town In a southwesterly direc tion into McLean county at the inter section of ^IcHenry, Ward and Mc Lean counties and then swoop north westward to Bye. While the branch from Garrison will not make a direct line to Mlnot It will doubtless be arranged so that speedy transfers can be made and the northern section of the state be brought into close communion with these parts. It will greatly broaden the commercial field of Bismarck's wholesale interests. The notice to the secretary of state also states that a branch will be built almost straight west from Flaxton, in northern Ward county, 50 miles to the northern center of Williams county. This line will open up a fertile country and result in an immense gain In set tlers. Crosby will probably be the terminus. RAILROAD, FINANCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL NOTES.
