Our experience as a duck hunter leads us to believe that you can have just as much fun and raise just as much fuss shooting at decoys as you can shooting at the real ducks. But, at that, shooting at decoys never makes a hit.

Picturesque on hot days among upper East side peddlers is the Turk: J.sh lemonade vendor, says New York Sun. He may be nieivly a native American in disguise, but lie adds to the interest of what might otherwise a commonplace occidental irade by going about garbed Irke Turk such i as children are familiar with through the pages of "their geography hooks. Across his hack rests a tank as long i as his body, and held tip by a thick strap slung over his right shoulder and under his left arm. A sort of Sam Krowne belt, encircles his waist. i except that where on Hie Sam Browue belt would be a place for bullets he has receptacles for glasses. You -ask him for glass of lemonade. He bows to you, and In so doing oper ates a mechanism which spills from the tank, through a bung hole near the bottom, some Ice-cold lemonade, which falls Into a glass he holds in his 1mnd. As the liquid nears the top, he straightens up, hands you the glass, and you give him two cents. A more frequent spectacle is that of the individual who is continually crying: "Helser arhus, heiser hub- has." He is declaiming. In Yiddish: "Mot peas, hot beans." His heating contrivance is In a four-wheeled cart he pushes by hand. For one cent he gives you a small b:ig, for two cents a larger bag, and for five cents he sells yon enough to give you-cramps. The presence of the "Holser arhus" man Is a signal for the kids of the I neighborhood to run to their mothers for pennies. Sheep j.s Lawn Mower3. In Central park, New York, and in the parks of other cities, sheep arc used In substitution for lawn mowers. These sheep are permitted to wander over the grass, in charge, of course, of a shepherd, and the nibbling of these creatures serves to keep the grass nicely trimmed. The cost of em ploying men to tenu the sheep is not more than that of hiring men to run the mowers, and the pastoral effect of a tlock of sheep grazing on the lawns is certainly more pleasing to city folk. It has been demonstrated by experi ence that sheep will maintain a lawn in first-class condition and that the grass thus trimmed Is as neat in ap pearance as any lawn over which the mechanical mower has passed.

What are the "points" of cities? How shall we compare one with another, and, allowing for geographic, climatic and economic limitations, describe the curve of possible useetit for the one we love hist? Hole is where we must establish standards. Vaguely we recognize lbe.se types in our ciuiu:: reference to a "factory town," a "miuing town" or a "county seat." and so on. But, tin" to a factory town or any other kind that we want to know about and improve, bow does it compare with others? We need a little book on "What Is a "City?" It should be a cheap little book that everybody can buy, a simple little hook that everybody can understand, a sort of civic primer. Suppose we live, as so many of us do, in an ordinary, medium-sized town. Our "city book" should inform us that a normal town, with the number of inhabitants our town has, should have such and such functions, adding to the simple requirements of the small vil lage those other and more varied func tions which the larger population of our town requires and can support. Such a list, for our ordinary medium sized town, might run somewhat as follows: Smithy, store, postoffice, school, -hurch, dressmaker, milliner, barber, Ji-ug store, moving pictures, court house, jail, lire company, hotel, hull. These ate not placed in any dog matic order of importance, or arranged with great care. A 'pnttern town" should be described suggesting the income that should be derived from legitimate taxation of its number of citizens, and showing just what advantages a town with such an income deserves and requires.*-Cht.r- loite Perkins Gilmau in the Century Magazine.

In contrast with the situation at Block Island, where the town came near bankruptcy, is that of Middle Ion, .Mass.

Here is what the town has to show for the amount aud may be timely: First, and one of the most Impor tant, are excellent schools. There is also a line, free public library, well equipped with the best of books. There is public water with good hy drant service and with which a large portion of the townspeople cau be sup plied. Electric lights are In all the central streets and a large number of homes are equipped with them. There are good railroad accommodations. Two new bridges have been built over the Ipswich river. The improvements, Willi the exception of the schools, have all been made during the last 20 years, and are all paid for with the exception of $5,400.1 In addition to' the above the state and county have' expended on the streets in town, tinder the small town act, for macadam roads, $150,000.

W THE BEMIDJl DAILY PIONEER rST, By Charles Sughroe Wtra Newipaptf Union FIRED FAST, HIT THE MARK Auditor of Legion's National Finane* Division Made Record With Field Artillery. A record for fast firing and direct hits with field artillery, may be far removed from keeping records and accounting Jbxpenditures. But the American Le i on considered this recommenda- tion when it chose William N. Day, Great Falls, Mont., as auditor of na tional finance divi sion. He is still scoring bulls-eyes. Twenty-five minutes to one minute was the? reduction Day's battery, "F" of the 14th Field artillery, made in the time experts required to train 6- Inch rifles on a target. A German train, sighted on the St. Mihiel front,, was' hit by Day's guns on the third roupd and completely demolished on the eleventh. With shells of all cali bers dropping on his battery every half-minute for more than two hours, the battery came through without a man wounded and with .three guns in action. Mr. Day says that he tinds the ad dition of a column of figures almost as exciting at times as the bombardment of an eue'my. lleeting target. Where the "Little Women" Played. What American girl or woman has not laughed or wept with the Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy of Louisa Alcott's delightful story? In the home of the authoress at Concord, Mass., the attic in particular recalls the jolly good times of the "Little Women." 'As we mount the stairs, we can hear In imagination the sound of daughter as the four girls discussed plans or plays, for this was their favorite gathering place, and It recalls many a delightful In cident in their lives.

How pleasant relations are mo:in talned between the farmers in the re gion of Stockton, Cal and the at tendants at the! city library of that place, and how tlx farmers draw heavily upon the facilities of the li brary to their pleasure and profit, is told in a bulletin of the Department of Agriculture. The library sends oirf traveling libraries to communities, and it also encourages the country resi dents to make direct use of the main library. There are 30 communities and 22 school districts that are receiving county free library service from Stock* ton, and the main library has a direct country circulation of 6,281 volumes.
