PAGE THE EC TRUSTEES VICTIMS OF SCHOOL PATRONS Township Made to Bear Big - Expense Because of the Hack Law. MANY INCONSISTENCIES. TRANSFER OF CERTAIN PUPILS ALWAYS PROVES A BIG COST TO THE TOWNSHIP SEEK TO DO AWAY WITH THIS. NEW TEXT BOOKS State Board of Education to Advertise for Contracts Soon. PATRONS GET NO RELIEF. Hack troubles are not the least with Vhlch the township trustees of the county have to contend and relief is being sought It is probable that the trustees of this county may seek a revision of the legislation that now governs the hack service for pupils Attending district schools. The law requires that the trustee must furnish a hack line to bring the pupllB toi School and he is given no relief against the whims and foibles of the Matrons. Wherever It is possible the trustees have sought to do away with the ne cessity of long hack lines by means of transfers. If a family resides far removed from neighbors and especial ly the road which is traveled most by the hack, the trustee usually endeav ors to induce the patrons to transfer their children to schools that are more convenient of access. In the majority of cases the parents are willing as they prefer their children ride only as short distances as necessary. But there are exceptions. One of the best examples of the exception class is to be found in Bos ton township. A resident insists that his children be taken by hack to the school at Milton, five miles from his home. He resides three miles from a school in Fayette county, which is lo cated on the same road as his house. He will not consent to his children going to the Fayette county school, however. He demands they be taken to Milton and besides run a special :?k lino for his benefit, the trustee U required to pay the cost of the t'iiiifefer as the school at Milton is in corporated. The trustees say that such injustices are not infrequent but the law is on the side of the patron. For- the small township to pay $2.50 per day for a hack besides the cost of transfer to satisfy one man is regard ed as somewhat extreme. In Franklin township, a patron has three children. One is within the age limit specified by law as requiring hack service. The home is located but one mile from the school and the fath er demanded that the trustee operate a hack line past his house so as to accommodate the one child. The man refused to accept a transfer, so as to enable the child to attend another Bchool. The sentiment among the trustees of this county favors a change in the hack law.

Amusements The state board of education has de cided to advertise for contracts for new text books for the public schools of the state for the next year, and the long suffering local buyers who have felt the weight of fancy prices for school books, at not only the beginning of school, but even more often have hopes that they will reap the bene fits. The books which are now used and on which contracts expire next year, are the geographies, arithmetics, copy books and readers. It is optional with the school board of the state to con tinue a contract for ten years, provid ing the books in use are considered satisfactory. All but two members of the board, however, supported a reso lution introduced by Governor J. Frank Hanly, directing the president to advertise for bids to be opened April 1, 1909. There will be no change in the school books until then, but it is possible that new books will be adopted for the school next year. On this account the school book companies that supply the state of Indiana with text books are making desperate efforts to renew the exist ing contracts which do not expire un til next year. The decision to adver tise for bide shows that the state board of education is "figuring on changes" in text books. The school book contract is one of the largest and most important that the state has to let. Approximately $700,000 is ex pended annually by the people of In diana for school books. A ten-year contract calls for a popular expendi ture of $7,000,000. FEELING BETWEEN COMMITTEEMEN Hitchcock and Dover Do Not Like Each Other, It Is Claimed. DOVER STILL HANGS ON. TAXING 8ACHLLORS. Penalties Have Often Been Imposed In Variou Countries. Bachelors as candidates or probation ers for marriage have formed the sub ject for legislation from the earliest times. Penalties have often been im posed on male celibates in various countries. In proportion as the inter ests of the state were regarded as above those of the individual the en forcement of marriage was the more severe. In anc'.ent Sparta it was con sidered a punishable crime not to mar ry or to marry too late In life. In Athens, though not severely punished, celibacy was discouraged In early times. At Rome marriage was fostered by positive penalties imposed on unmar ried men and sometimes even on wom en as well as by discrimination in favor of heads of families. In the allotment of the Campanlan lands by Julius Cae sar portions were given only to the fa thers of three or more children. Under Augustus a law was enacted prohibit ing unmarried persons below the age of sixty in men and fifty in women from taking possession of a legacy, and this was applied even to widows, who, in order to secure their part of their de ceased husband's estates, were forced to marry again within a period of two years. HE STATED AT TIME OF CHICAGO CONVENTION THAT IF HITCH COCK WAS NAMED HE WOULD RESIGN PLACE. Washington, July 23. A peculiar situation confronts the republican na tional committee as a result of the evi dent determination of Elmer Dover to retain the secretaryship of the or ganization. During the progress of the Chicago convention it was reported that Mr. Dover had announced that if Frank H. Hitchcock was named for the campaign chairmanship he would quit the committee. Friends of Mr. Hitchcock declare he awaits the resignation of Secretary Dover, but is convinced that Dover intends to hang onto the Job. Dover, it is declared here will be secretary in name only, if he should remain in his present position. It is known for a certainty that the relations between Chairman Hitchcock and Secretary Dover are strained, a coolness between them existing prior to the Chicago convention becoming intensified as a result of differences over the Taft candidacy developed at that time. People here in a position to know say that Dover more than any one else was responsible for the action of Chairman Harry New in dismissing Mr. Hitchcock from the assistant sec retaryship, which he had filled since 1904. Hitchcock's removal from the presentation of a number of proxies at a meeting of the national committee held to pass on contests brought by the allied interests. While admitting that there is bad feeling between Hitchcock and Dover, friends of Dover declare that whatever the present at titude of the new chairman toward the secretary of the committee, Judge Taft is favorable to the retention of Dover. It is the expectation here that Mr. Dover's status with the committee will b edetermined upon the arrival here of Chairman Hitchcock. They have not met since Mr. Hitchcock was named chairman. If for any reason Mr. Dover should make up his mind to retire, it might be necessary to call a meeting to name his successor, although the belief is entertained by some that the commit tee could be polled by the chairman through correspondence.

Drake, national committeeman of the inde pendence party from Alabama,- who is here to fight in the battle for the nom inations at the convention and to aid in the campaign, has revealed one of the most powerful batteries which is to be turned upon any of the old or ganizations. Committeeman Drake, who is one of the leading figures in organized labor in the south stated that he will seek the indorsement of the hundreds of union officials in the party to a pro nunciamento in which the indorse ment of President Samuel Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, for the democratic ticket will be almost nullified. He propseB to show by a preponder ance of the opinions expressed by rec ognized labor representatives from every part of the country that Presi dent Gompers' declaration was prema ture, inconsistent, not true to the spir it felt by union men, and unauthor ized by the rank and file of the men whom Gompers represents. GIRL BEHEADED FOR HER CRIME Man in Dress Suit Acted Executioner. as Look For Soap Quality. It's no bargain to buy a big chunk of yellow soap for a few cents,' if the bulk and weight are made with rosin and grease; that simply smears things but does not clean them. There is a good pure sort called Easy Task soap which only costs five cents a cake and is the greatest cleanser known. Con sult your grocer. Freiburg. Saxony, July 23. Grete Beler, the eighteen-year-old daughter of the Mayor of Freiburg, was be headed last night for, the murder of her fiance, she having given him pois on and then shot him. The executioner carried a thin, long box containing the ax with which he did his work, and also a handbag with a suit of evening clothes. The wear ing of this garb is an official require ment of the somber occasion. The ex ecution was done privately, and he departed from Freiberg as quietly as he came. Delaware's N sines. Delaware has been called the Dia mond State, for. though small in size, It formerly was of great political im portance. It also enjoys the nickname of the Blue Hen State, this having been bestowed on account of a gentle man named Caldwell, who made the state famous in sporting annals by the quality of his gamecocks, which he al ways bred from the eggs of a blue hen, believing that this was the best color for the mother of a gamecock.

Some of the Wonderful Instruments Man Has Invented. The sensitiveness of the human or ganism Is gross indeed compared with that of the marvelous machines man has made. A photographic plate cou pled with a telescope discovers millions of stars whose light the retina of the eye does not appreciate. T1m micro phone makes the inaudible tread of a fly sound like the tramp of cavalry men. The human heat sense cannot iTuUze a difference of temperature be-.- tvl oue-flfth of a degree, but the ba- Meter, an Instrument 200,000 times a tnsitive as the skin, notes a differ t 'N.. of a millionth of a degree. A gal- X ".uametcr flexes its finger at a current generated by simply deforming a drop ot mercury so as to press it out of a spherical shape into that of an egg. The amount of work Uoue by the wink of an eye equals 100,000,000.000 ot the winks marked on the scale of a delicate Instrument, but even this performance is surpassed by the coherers of Branley f Paris by which the Hertz waves of wireless telegraphy are caught In their pulsings through space. The range of Impressions which we get from lifting an object Is exceedingly small. An or HI nary chemist's balance is some mil lion time as sensitive and tvelguts aown the two hundredth part of a mil iigram. Without such Instruments as these we should know far less about the "world than they place within our reach. They make it evident that our sense organs give us reports of but a comparatively small number of com paratively gross stimuli. Chicago Tribune. The Hnmriso Of Uffe.
