They Can't Duck
The duck shooting season opened
today. 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.

People persist in crowding around
the scene of an accident for the same
reason that women don't mind get
ting crushed in a crowd if they can
save a cent on a cake of soap.
Every Little Bit Helps

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
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.

SEES NEED OF "CITY BOOK"

of Great Value to Community

What are the "points" of cities? How

and economic limitations, describe the

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

-hurch, dressmaker, milliner, barber,
Ji-ug store, moving pictures, court
house, jail, lire company, hotel, hull.

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.
"Bud" who had just started to
school, thought it very smart to use
big words. His sister was told to slap
his hands when he was naughty, so
one day he came In. furious, and said:
"There is absolutely no philosophy In
sister hitting me the way she does.
She must be made to stop it."Chi-
cago Herald and Examiner.

doesn't ask his wife what she does

Clothing Stioking to Leather.
To keep one's clothing from stick

should be rubbed lightly with a cloth
dampened with gasoline.
City Library and Farmer.
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.

Photographing From Airplane.
In view. Qt the. facility, wjth which
otijecls "many" feet under"water can be
photographed from .an airplane it Is
possible that the navigation of such a
river as the Mississippi, with its shift
ing bars, may hereafter be made safe
by monthly or weekly mapping -om
'the air. In earthquake regions, sm-ii
as southern Italy and Japan, the
changing coast lines, shallows and safe
harbors can easily be photographed
from the air after each fresh shock
thus keeping ''navigation open and
safeguarding the lives of mariners.
Calgary Insures Employees.
Group insurance to the amount of
$1,500,000 has been taken out by the
city of Calgagr to cover employees in
case of death, sickness, accident, or
any other cause. Calgary Is at pres
ent the lnrgest city in Canada provid
ing this form of protection for em
ployees. A feature of the group plan
Is that many otherwise uninsurable
persons are thus included.
The Echo Came.
The mother of a five-year-old child
was admonishing him to be a better
boy, when the father who was present
jokingly remarked, "It can't be did,
it can't be did." Later when the
little boy was saying his evening
prayer just before retiring he invoked
the Supreme Being to make him a
better boy. Continuing, he said:
"Make daddy a good man," then hesi
tating In his supplication he remarked,
"It can't be did, -daddy, it can't be did."
