Aa a youth he waa brought by hiawirenta to America and waa ed ucated at Hope College. Holland, Mich igan, from which Institution he grad uated In 1868. Ia 1S71 he returned to bis alma mater aa an instructor. - In I7S he became a professor and since 1813 he has been president of Hope College. Dr. Kollen has a wide rep utation aa a churchman and educator and for many years he has been one of tao leading members or tne national board of education of the Reformed Church In America. In 1906 his edu cational work In behalf of the Hol landers in America waa recognised by Queen Wllhelmina of the Netherlands vhA made him a knight of tho OriLv of Orange, x r LIFE'S BREVITY. .

It has been customary whenever the tax ferret can work his bluff to get the city to give bim a donation for his work in addition to the thirty per cent, m-hich he already receives from the county. The folly of this and the almost criminal extravagance of the prac tice is seen when it is known that the minute the taxable property which the tax ferret discovers Is listed for taxation it may be seen by all comers on the books of the county. . . Indeed the very taxes of the city are payable to the same official who receives the county taxes. The city at present has a contract with Tax Ferret Lowe which will shortly, expire. " . , ' This practice shows plainly that the tax ferret is largely parasitical In his dealings with the public. ' ' ' For the city of Richmond to continue paying him a bounty, out of pure good will for he performs no services which are not already at the disposal of the City of Richmond has all . the earmarks of something which tax payers do not particularly applaud. It is another illustration of paying twice for the same thing and an other illustration of the viciousness of the tax ferret operators. Worth While? It may take more of an explanation to satisfy the people of Richmond than that given by Superintendent T. A. Mott in regard to the dedication of the High School building, than he has advanced. , From the indications that we have seen most of the people here abouts 'are desirous of holding the dedication at the time of the celebra tion of the Wayne County Centennial. As this paper pointed out recently the fitting time to hold the dedl- cation of the finest school building in the Middle West one typifying the progress of this community and expressing in tangible form the phrase 'Richmond Is a Good Place to Live is at that time when there will be people from all over the oountry anxious to see what Richmond Is doing. Aa we understand it, Mr. Mott has taken the position "that there are too many things going on" at that time. Such an argument suggests that the new High School building is not sufficient attraction in itself to com pete with the 'other features of the town and the Fall Festival and the Centennial-this is hard to believe. Items Gathered In From Far and Near .Track and Street. From the New York World. Professional horse racing ends in New York on the last day of August. Betting of every description Is unlaw ful. Attempts have been made, it ap pears, to carry on the sport without gambling, but the attendance has been small and the, losses great. It is ad mitted on all sides that the diversions of the track as such appeal to few. This waa the argument advanced by those who were most active in their opposition to pool-selling. A similar contention is maintained by those who would like to extend the movement against gambling in such a way as to cover many of the operations in Wall street. - A great racing park well ap pointed In every way and presenting first-class horses as ' attractions be comes unprofitable as soon as betting is prohibited. The attendance Is small. Interest is languid. Under such conditions Belmont Park, itself Is to be turned into a field for; aviation. What would be the effect upon the Wall street district if all transactions In that quarter ' were legitimate? Would there be fewer monumental banks and luxurious offices? Would the stock exchange itself be found too elaborate? Yet In Wall street there are conveniences for gambling which no race track ever had. It is accessi ble. No admission fee is charged. It has agents and runners everywhere. Horse racing was a summer sport. Wall street has all seasons for its own. The turf did not appeal special ly to the young. Wall street addresses Itself to all ages and all purses. A ten-dollar bill will go 'as far on a wag er in palatial Wail street as it ever did at a race track. Another American Guest. From the Chicago Post. Kaiser Wilhelm has invited Marshall Hermes de Fonseca, president-elect of Braxil, to be a personal guest at the German naval maneuvers. President Taft may entertain the Brazilian later, as he wishes especially to come to this country to Inspect the Military Acad emy at West Point. President-elect Fonseca Is a rather remarkable man. The typical South American in our somewhat dull eyes is a 'fiery revolu tionary. Fonseca is the exactly oppo site type. He is'a careful, steady, au stere person who has won a European reputation as a foe to revolutions. . He has preached unremittingly to his countrymen the gospel of stable gov ernment. And to him is given a large share of credit for the fact that of Brasil's six presidents not one has won or lost office through a revolution. Germany has long been credited with aggressive plans toward Brazil, and German emigrants are steadily pour ing Into that country. This .will lend interest to the United States' observa tion of the coming visit of the president-elect to the kaiser. Will it be "inein freund Fonseca aa well as "mein freund Roosevelt?" Hard Luck. From the New York Tribune. The chorus girl is once more In hard luck. The fish commission reports lobsters growing scarcer and mildew has attacked the French champagne vineyards.

A little further on the same thing was repeated. -1 then call ed my husband and told him to get up quick, that four men had. Just passed and were shooting our chickens. By the time he got out on the road one fellow was going to the rig. chickens in hand and before he could get "near them they drove on across the Whiter water bridge, turned north and camped in John Blose's woods on the, creek. They claimed to be turtle bunting, but they were hen hunting when we saw them. 1 Is there no recourse for us farmers? Do we have to see our chickens shot down before our eyes by such scound rels and not be able to ston them? Our neighbors are Josing chickens by the dozen. Perhaps the same fellows are doing all the stealing. If so, I think something should be , done to stop It- Everybody is wrought up over the way these, town loafers come out and carry on. on Sunday. If law will not reach such people, something else will have to be done. We live three miles north, ot Middleborough, on Hol lansburg pikfe, MRS. 1. A. HYATT. Since writing the above, the men have came back thfs way on the road to Richmond. We stopped them, and they denied killing the hens, but when they found out we knew all about It, they said the hens were on the road and were game and they had a right to shoot them. A READER. (Editor's Note) The following is a good receipt for chicken shooters. A large dose of buckshot mixed well in a double-barrel shotgun. Apply both barrels to the patient. Immedi ate satisfaction is obtained. FAVOR TREE TRADE f American News Service) Antwerp, Aug. 9.

By EDWIN A. NYE. Copyright, 1908, by Edwin A. Nye rKOffXI XOUK GIK.L. Girls must not run tn racea exceeding fifty yard in length. They must not compete In violent exer cise, auch as high jumping, putting the abot, burdla racing, and so on. Those are rules made by the directors of tbe Brooklyn Manual Training school. The girls of tbe school planned an elaborate program of outdoor sports and were very indignant when these rules were posted. A They were obliged to content them selves with fifty yard races, baseball and basketball.- The girls do not understand. ', They do not realize now easily a girl might permanently injure herself and unfit herself for tbe duties of wifehood and motherhood by violent exercise. 1 The physician understands. . Tbe plain fact is that girls were not built by nature to withstand violent physical strain. Man was built for such endurance, and the young man needs severe phys ical activity for purposes of physical development. " Even with young men. however, overstrain in athletic contests often has produced permanent injury. Many a star athlete has died young. 1 If young men are physically hurt by this exertion, much more may young women be injured thereby. Womanhood spells motherhood. Woman Is made capable by nature for tbe duties of motherhood, and that is sufficient strain for her sex. To re quire more is cruel and dangerous. The state understands. Nowadays In almost every commonwealth young girls nre protected by the laws from the stress of physical toll. But many parents are slow to learn the-dangers that attend their girls on account of overstrain. For instance ' Many a young girl has been made a nervous wreck for life by "skipping the rope to tbe point of physical exhaus tion. , And there is tbe "Marathon dance." where prizes are given to the girt who dances the longest a barbarism that should be punished by severe penalty. See that your daughter la not injur ed by physical excesses, whether for labor or recreation, else you may com mit by your neglect a crime trataart the girl and her future. It seems very probable that there were smokers in England long be fore the. introduction of tobacco, ac cording to tbe London Chronicle. Pipes have been discovered embedded in the mortar of churches bdilt be fore Europe's first acquaintance with tobacco, and it seems only reasonable to suppose that the people of that day smoked herbs of some sort either med icinally or for pleasure. Coltsfoot was inhaled for asthma, though whether a pipe was used in the process remains a matter for conjecture. IN HISTORY" POLITICIANS A VATICAN AFFAIR (American News Service.)
