"Whenever it is necessary, for
the welfare of the children, to
insist that one or more families
be quarantined," says the July
Woman's Home Companion, "it
is astonishing how frequently
this is taken as a personal insult
by the parents. It seems to be
considered as an infringement
upon the family rights and not
for one moment to be tolerated."
This editorial has to do with a
widespread evil. It says further:
"A. striking instance came to
notice recently in a suburban
town. For some weeks sporadic
cases of diphtheria had been ap
pearing. Every care was taken
to find out the source of the
trouble but all to no avail.
There were carriers at large, and
no one knew who was responsi
ble. So it was decided to make
a systematic examination of the
throats of the school children,
and to send cultures of all sus-picous-looking
cases to the lab
oratory. It was found that
twenty-five per cent of these cul
tures gave a positive reaction,
so, of course, these children were
promptly banished, and quaran
tine ordered by the board of
health. The nature of the work
and the necessity for these pre
cautions were explained to the
parents in every instance; nev
ertheless, some of these same
parents were very angry, and
tried various devices to break
the quarantine- One of the
mothers threatened a law suit
unless her child was promptly
taken back to school and the sign
put on her house by order of the
board of health immediately re
moved! "Another mother entirely ig
nored the notice sent to her, and
flatly refused to keep her child
in the house, though she knew
he was not well when she sent
him to school. It was several
hours after this child had been
sent home before the mother
could be brought to terms. Mean
while, to spite the authorities
who had perpetrated this out
rage upon her family by barring
her boy out of school, she sent
him over to one of her neighbors
to play with the children. Two
of these children promptly con
tracted diphtheria, and the
younger one, scarcely more than
a baby, developed a malignant
type and died in two days. It
would certainly be using a harsh
expression to say that the child
was murdered, and yet if he had
been neatly shot he would have
suffered far less."

Woodrow Wilson stands on any

with a high sense of national

"'The most sensible covering
ever made for the feet," says
Dr. Arthur R. Reynolds in the
July American Magazine, "is the
moccasin of the American Indian
worn without a stocking. San
dals also, are good. The sneak
ers of children and tennis shoes
with pliable rubber soles are
next best. The shoes generally
on the market for young children
are without heel; there is a level
sole for the thread and the toes
are wide, but it is usually made
of hard, unyielding leather."
Constipation and Indigestion.
"I have used Chamberlain's Tablets
and must say they are the best I have

The Flag on the Seas.
During fifty years of Dem
ocratic freedom of the seas and
of commerce following Thomas
Jefferson, 80 percent., of Amer
ican commerce on the high seas
was carried in American ships.
During fifty years of Republican
high tariffs and hide-bound sea
traffic, our merchant marine
dwindled until only 8 per cent. ,
of American commerce was car
ried in American bottoms. Un
der the Democratic ship registry
act of 1914 both the number of
merchantmen carrying the
American flag and the per
centage of commerce carried in
American bottoms have more
than doubled. Moreover, under
Democratic tariff and shipping
laws, the United States in 1916
has become both the leading
commercial nation and the lead
ing ship building country of the
earth. All this country required,
the facts show, was to cut loose
from its Republican swaddling
clothes. State Journal.

The Story of a Famous Hymn.
The famous hymn beginning
"God moves in a mysterious
way," known as "Cowper's
Hymn," had its origin as fol
lows: Cowper was all his life the
victim of melancholia and more
than once attempted suicide.
One day, bent upo.i destroying
himself, he got into a cab and
ordered the driver to taKe him to
a certain point on the river
where he intended to drown him
self. The cabman, noticing his
strange appearance and feeling
that all might not be right with
him, drove him about the city
and finally stopped in front of
the poets door. Stepping out
and recognizing the old familiar
surroundings and shocked at the
thought of , his narrow escape,
Cowper exclaimed, "God moves
in a mysterious way his wonders
to perform," and, rushing in,
immediately composed the im
mortal hymn.
The Government has recently
been advised by a correspondent
in California that a variety of
wheat is being advertised under
the name of "Titantic." The
assertion is made that it is a new
variety of wheat discovered in
England about four years ago,
and that a small quantity of seed
was brought to the United States
by one of the survivors of the
ill-fated Titanic. The wheat is
represented as having extremely
high yielding power, the returns
reaching as high as 7,000-fold.
A photograph sent by this cor
respondent shows a head identi
cal in appearance with the wide
ly exploited "Alaska" wheat.
Five acres of the wheat are said
to be growing in the State of
Washington, and the seed, it is
believed, will be offered at high
prices after harvest. The de
partment has no further or more
definite information concerning
this variety, but farmers and
dealers are cautioned to be on
their guard concerning this new
