From his association with the late Rev. H. Boswell Bates, founder of the Neighborhood house, George A. Mer rltt learned how little was being done to make cripples self-supporting and how common, almost universal, was the belief that owing to various afflic tions, these unhappy ones roust always be a burden on others. This was not his belief, and so strong did he hold an opposite conviction that, with the aid of a few charitable persons whom he Inspired with it, he founded the Path school at 60 West Twenty-Fifth street, New York, in order to teach rriptfles commercial and railroad teleg raphy and thus give to them that greatest boon, a means of livelihood. This school Is still young, but it has already proved itself many times over. It trains legless, armless, and de formed persons, but especially the young who are thus afflicted, either in the course laid out by the school or in some other line most suitable to indi vidual cases. It Is free to all, non-sec tarian, and It has already in lt short life lifted nearly 80 poor creatures from a state of dependence, or even penary, to positions where by honest labor they earn from $12 to *18 per week and have the joy that comet from self-support.

FOOL THE CUSTOMS OFFICERS Canadian and Maine Farmers Said to Have Ingenious Systems of Smuggling Devices. Entirely aside from questions of tariff reform, reciprocity and free trade with Canada would help to put an end to the constant lawbreaking) that goes on along the border. It 1 estimated that eight thousand persons are engaged in smuggling goods across the line. One instance has been reported In which a party of schoolboys coasting in an old pung down a hill that slopes across the boundary, apparently for fun, brought with them at every trip a chest of tea, until fifty chests had been smuggled into Maine, contrary to law. ^gain, an "aqueduct" of small lead pipe, half a mile long, was secretly laid from a tavern in the Dominion, to a public house on the other side of the line, through which hundreds of barrels of gin "and other liquors were pumped. Nor are such "aqueducts" always restricted to liquors. A wood en spout was used for years to convey oats across the boundary. The lawbreakers were a New Bruns wick farmer named Cudley and a i neighbor across the line named Arm-1 strong. Armstrong raised about six hundred bushels of oats on his farm and sold ten times that quantity to the lumber camps. The customs offi cers watched his premises and searched them at times, but were nev er able to discover anything wrong until after he moved away, when they found a square spout, made of boards and burled under the snow and piles of brush, which extended from Cud ley's barn to a bin in the Maine man's granary. Inside this conduit was a long belt provided with tin cups and attached to a winch that could be turned by a crank in Cudley's barn. Youth's Companion. Only "Load Up" Right. The tasks you add to your already full program must be related to your life work. The magnet won't hold soap, and froth and wood. Its affinity Is with things of steel. So your efforts must be related to. your talents and experience if they are to be a help in your growth. One added task above your specialty would be enough to swamp a man who doesn't know your line. To you it's just another added opportunity. To he sure it will re quire some effort, but nothing In com parison to what it would require In others. You take the load on uncon sciously, it's merely another turn or two of the kind you do right along. But In time those few extra daily turns make you a tower of strength. There Is no limit to your development when you load up rightGrit.

Take the city of Troyes, favorably known throughout the A. E. P. as a practically.M. P.-Iess burg, writes Tip Bliss in the American Legion Weekly. Naturally, any human being would pronounce it to rhyme with "noise." and go on Ills way rejoicing in th knowledge of a good deed well per formed. Not so the frisky prof. He calls It "Twa," though why and wherefore le bon Dieu alone knows. But If you want to get even with the f. p., try him out with a regular word with plenty of "w's" and "h's" and "th's" in it. "Whether" is the cat's fur, as the army expression almost has it. Tackle him with "whether" and watch him gargle and stammer and Sizzle and finally turn up his toes and pass away while somewhere in his in sides are still resounding the Inst de spairing notes of his infernal inter pretation of a good, Christian word Into "vny-zalr-r-re."

Not far from the spotr where the Ti tanic waa suuk by an iceberg in April, 1912, a fleet of 14 icebergs, some of them rising to more than 100 feet above the water line, were sighted by the steamship Muuaires on a recent voyage. Captain Fleming of the Munaires says that one of the bergs gave a re markable exhibition of tumbling as the vessel sailed past. It had apparently lost a good deal of Its under water weight through the action of the warm sea water, and as they watched it the great iceberg suddenly tipped to star board and rolled over with an Immense splash. As it fell, a big section of the top broke away, with the result that the balance was altered and the berg tumbled back again. Then, just as It was righting itself, another section broke off, and it tumbled once more. The sight was a most unusual one. Edinburgh Scotsman.
