Schwab, in an address last night before the Pennsylvania State Education association, declared that the average morale of the average American citizen the working class was higher than that of the so called higher citizens of the country. "I am prouder of the friendship of those who worked with me in my humble beginning," he added, "than of the adulations of the highest in the world." Referring to the fundamental prin ciples of education, he said: "Teach the boy first the broad prin ciple of democracy, and, second, in still in him the principle of honest integrity so that as a man he will love his fellowman and his word will be as good as his bond. "If I had a son I would see that he would receive the highest education in the United States. Such a type cannot be gained in universities and colleges where class distinction and snobbishness is often too prevalent, although such institutions may give him snpremacy in technical things. But those traits do not make for a successful business man. The ideal education, to my mind, comes to the boy in the great public schools of this country. There is no real education except self-education. What he gets in school, after all. is only the foun dation on which his future success is built by actual effort."

A NEW AND COMFORTABLE UNDERGARMENT COMBINATION 4069. Here we have the latest thing in loomer.s, with wide, smart cuff finish, and a waist that has prac tical features. It is often desirable to have a little waist to wear under a dress of sheer material. This style has no unnecessary fulness and slips on over the head, with the band fast ened at one side. To this band, drawers or skirts may be buttoned or attached, with snap fastenejs, or, as illustrated it may serve to hold knick ers or bloomers. The Pattern is cut in 6 sizes: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 years. An 8 year aizi will require 3 V yards of 32 inch ma terial. The waist alone requires 1 yard of 36 inch material. Name WILLIAMSBURG, Ind.
