We could find a vast fund of Mib jects if we went abroad for them, but we prefer lo treat live local Mibjcctn because we find oiu' readers like them .best But what arc we to do -when the people become hum-drum and. uninteresting? Stir up some thing and give the editor a change. Take. the (hospital, for instance, Why not arrange for a big meerting to discuss ways and mean, for taking most advantage of Mr. Wain scott's proposition for a fair thU year to benefit the hospital fund. We understand there is a hospital fund in existence now which lias been raised by various organizations. With :t!ie proceeds from the fair it ought do be subsiantial enough to (have trustees appointed to handle it and arrange for the collection of those donations which were ready to be made last year. By the "way. unless those dona tions are collected soon the partie offering them might change their minds. The advent oC t.be new railroad will make the hospital all the more necessary ntid easy to mainUiin. By this time nckt j-car, the ambitions .city of Winchester ought Xo possess a hospital, in which our citizens can take pride and comfort.

MISS ROSA L. BALDWIN GOOD FOR MISS ROSA the conununity- at large- It is not enough, as so many parents thin!;, that the means he furnished. There is a community esprit de corps witti the efficiency of the schools for its ultimate end that does more to make possible the highest work in the school-room than any other singJe aid, rind Hie attitude comes from the intelligent study of the broader so- (rcial piblems of the school system and an intelligent support, rendered unfailingly. For instance, there may be men tioned at this time as both illustra tive and timely, the matter of tardi nesses and absences (if pupils "in the schools. The rocoids show that 4heic were 700 ab.-onces, in the t-hools during the pat month. There were 330 pupils, out of an enrollment f 730, whoso attendance was perfect. 400 pupils then, were absent 700 times. Of the four hun dred 250 were absent 100 times. mot of tlu;m a day or Icv?s. TJii hlvciS 150 pirpils ab-ent 300 time?, oi and average of two days or one tenth of the M'hool month. Tlio ac tual facts fc'uAv that more than -two-thirds of tliesiC pupils were out of schooLfor trival reasons. But these figures do not show thr actuul loss of thee iuiil' Any child who is nbreiit one day loses' more than that day from actual par ticipation and benefit in the worr of the school. If absent Monday he Iosns Monday's instruction. He also loses all preparation fur Tuesdays lessons as well. Xow Monday's lessons fiuust lie learned but to d so melius that preparation for "Yed ncMbiy's .work must be slighted. It the work is notrepareitiuid the pu lil again mies a day he is at leaist four days behind the grade. In nine cases ont of tern that pupil feels j his loss so that he becomes dis couraged and further adds 'to the difficulty of redeeming his place in the grade. ' In most grades there is a large amount of supplementary material, not in the text, given by teacheiv The absent pupils can never get that material. Add to the loss caused by absence that caused by frequent written requests that pupils be ex cused from grades before regular hours and in' many cases the lost time will he doubled. Parents have no idea, generally speaking, what a handicap they are placing upon their children in abetting or permitting them to be absent from their regular work. Aside from the .reasons .that have been mentioned there is the fuitCicr one that the break in at tendance carries wilh it a break in the interests of the pupil in his stud ies and in tho relations with his teacher. T have seen many 'ca.-cs -where teachers had utrivcn hard .fur weeks in gaining the interest of an indif ferent boy and just when sJie had fair promise of .success all her ef- furls would go for naught because t-taio though lless parent took tho child for a few days' visit to sonic place. In tho end-hu School and tho teachers aio blamed for the fail ure of the child lo be promoted, but justice would lay the blame at the imr pupils ' who are cnHtU'd be- WITH YOU TEN STAMPS L. BALDWIN muse of their effort and attendance to all tho extra time that is possible for her to give. Besides this no teacher .should be required to gie additional hours to the pupils whose parents are so indifferent to the wel fare of fhe child as to let him miss the regular work; she needs that time for recreation and the .better preparation of the n6xt day's les sons. When sfnc does perform much of that class of work either she suf fers in reduced teaching eneigy or lessened preparation for her woik. In cither case the regular and dil igent child is made to lose in order that the indifferent ono may catch up with (he grade. That is not jus tice to any one concerned. FURS! FURS!! FURS!!!
