Lecture In Tenelii'rO Coiu'se nt the L'ulverslty by Siiperiiitcnilent .Slone. The lion. Mason S. Stone, Htato super intendent of education, delivered a lecture In tho tend. "ii' com so in tho Williams Science hall Monday afternoon. It was a very able piesentation of llio op portunities loiifimitiiiK the public si houln to-day. 3. Mr. Stone calbd attention first of all to our la i (re e-xpcndltudr r war and the effects if war ns computed with our expenditures for public c in. 'a' ion. But Mkiis are not wanting thut a change for the better In tills reepi ct Is already fc'olng on. Within tho last fifty years the attitude of the niitlonb towaids wnr has hem changing rapidly, The lime is coming when brcula between nations will be regarded as dltreputable ns s-trir; lights between neighbors. The puolie school may become ono of the most pnweiful ngencles In hnstenlng the estab lishment of universal ponce. 2. Tho speaker then discussed such national evils as suicides, homicides, fabulous PNpenditures for l.quord and tobacco, and pointed tho opportunities which the public schools have to check thei-e evils. He touched nlto upon certain conditions In our own State, towards llio correction of which tho s, hool sbould work. 3. Special emphnsls was laid upon c r tnln false Ideals of lite which are held up before the youth of to-day. Wealth and not worth is too often the nandard set up. That which exerts Influence and wins applause pot the ' luinicter of a man, or his worth as an inttlk i timl and moral being but the amount of his possessions. What gives him hnpoitnnce among his fellows and in tho com munity Is not high Intelligence and un conquerable rectitude but the amount of money he hns. Here ngulii Is a splendid WportTir.it y for tho schools to instill lino Ideals Into the minds of the young. 4. The speakPi- closed by calling atten tion to tho fnct that nlrendy we uio the primary nnd workshop of the world, and sre destined to becomo moro so It, the future, Th public schools hnvo now the opportunity to prejiaio the rising genoia tion to do their part towards malutulnlns our supremncy In these directions. Mr. Stone's whole address received the closest attention anil was highly ap preciated by all present. HONKi'MOON'. "Are wo to go up Mt. Wnshlngton, rteorRn?"

The annual season of forest fires Is ' now at hand when extra precaution Ii necessary on tho part of everyone. Hamago done by these flrea cannot be measured In thousands of feet of lumber destroyed, for the Innumerable 1 young trees and seedlings burned rep resent future forests of inestimable value, and the Impoverishment of tho soil affects the growth of trees not yet started. Tho Public Utilities Commission of New York has decreed that tho rail- I roads operating In the Adirondnoks shall burn oil to avoid such conflagra tions as were common last fall. It Is possible that 6omo such precautionary measures will be necessary in certain sections of Vermont, but It Is certain that much can bo accomplished to- i ward the elimination of forest fires by greater care on tho part of loco motlvo engineers, farmr, hunters, campers, saw-mill men and thoao who uso the woods for their Sunday rec reation. These tires are ehlony dun to carelessness and Ignorance and can bo largely avoided by the use of an average degree of common sense. Next to precaution ngaln3t starting these fires Is tho necessity of control ling them as soon ns possible aftc they are started. Two or threo me can do more townrd putting out a fin right nftor It Is started than a hun dred can do after a few hours. It was to Insure this prompt attention to all fires whether In valuable woodlands or brush lands that the law was passed making tho first selectman of each town forest flro warden for that town. The wardens have authority to go up on any land for this purpose and call upon any person In the town for as sistance. All persons thus employed aro paid at tho rate of fifteen cenH n hour. It will help greatly townrd oing nway with theso tires If every uc! discovering a tiro will not only 0 what he can toward putting It out tit will report It promptly to tho rst selectman. The State forester has or distribution cloth notices warning gainst forest fires. These may be had 1 eo upon application to him.
