"Invitations" will soon be sent by
officials of the internal revenue office
at St, Paul to all persons in the state
who must pay their income tax. Pay
ments may be made, it is explained,
either direct to the St. Paul office or
to the nearest internal revenue office.
They must be completed by July 1
or penalties will attach. Statements
showing the amount of income are
submitted by taxpayers during the,
early months of the year until March
31, when a penalty is assessed
against belated statements. These
statements are used on the basis of
the tax, except in cases where in
ternal revenue officers believe they
are not correct, when investigation is
Under a new policy notices have
been sent to heads of all state depart
ments, and superintendents of state
institutions, by J. A. O. Preus, state
auditor, informing them that unex
pended balances in department funds
must be turned in to the general
fund of the state August 1, at the
end of the fiscal year unless special
reasons are shown for other action.
Mr. Preus says the total of such un
expended balances would be about
125,000. Of this sum the state
railway and warehouse commission
has accumulated about $38,000 in
the course of several years and the
state dairy and food commission
about $19,000. Departments, boards
or institution heads desiring to retain
their unexpended balances will be re
quired to make formal application be
fore August 1, to a special state board
consisting of the governor, state
treasurer and attorney general,
which may grant or refuse the same.
Continuing An Education.
"Graduates from school and col
lege have always said a good deal
about continuing education after
they go to work," says the Daily Vir
ginian. "As a matter of fact few of
them do so. They settle into habits
of desultory reading, largely of
magazines and novels.
"The recent growth of summer
school and home courses of univer
sity education, however, is encourag
ing a vast number of young people
to keep at it. Columbia university
in announcing its summer schools
for 1915, notes that last year 5,590
students took these extra courses.
And that is only one institution
among score sthat are doing this

We understand that Representative
Gunner B. Bjornson, editor of the
Minnesota Mascot, could be prevailed
upon to accept a nomination for the
office of secretary of state, now held
by Julius Schmahl. Mr.' Bjornson

President Roosevelt will be chosen
as the Republican standard bearer
in the next presidential campaign.
Of course that is merely a speculative
guess and since one guess is as good
as another we venture the guess that
in all probability Mr. Roosevelt will
not be in the field at all, for the
reason that our national affairs are
not likely to be in shape to permit a
successful presidential campaign up
on purely local issues. It is possible
that conditions may change, but at
present Mr. Roosevelt's chances for
the presidency are not very encour

in southern states regarding child
labor laws and branding the mills of

of human life, Wiley H. Swift, sec
retary of the Natural Child Labor
committee in North and South Caro
lina, today delivered a stirring ad
dress on the need of legislative guards
against child workers.
"When I consider what remains to
be done for the protection of the
chjildpen in North and South Caro
lina I am forced to conclude that up
to the present we have not "progressed
very far," declared Mr. Swift. "North
and South Carolina have a larger
per cent of child workers in the
manufacturing industry than any
other state in the country. If the
persons engaged in these industries
should march by every ninth person
would be a child under 16. These
