The first man to flash a revolver
under the new Wisconsin gun
toting law is fined $l5O in a Mil
waukee court and on failure to
pay is sent, to jail for four months.
That sounds better. A “century
and a half,” ns the crooks would
say, will appear to many citizens
none to much under a law that
allows a SSOO fine or 364 days be
hind the bars. But it is so much
higher than the old scale that it,
ought to be a deterrent. And the
cost of gun-toting can be raised
a good many more notches under
tin- statute. Here is a law that
holds responsibility of ridding Wis
cons in of its walking arsenals, and
we hope every court of justice will
recognize that the man who flash
es a gun deliberately endangers
the safety of (he community. —Mil-
waukee Journal.
Writers are always saying there
is no aim in life.
It is a weak, senseless observa
tion. There is an aim in life,
written over everything in large
It is to be as comfortable, as
well behaved, as useful, as success
ful as possible. It, is a waste of
time to say you should have been
born differently, and into a differ
ent world. You were not, so that’s
the end o that. Don’t sit. around
and grumble. Get busy at some
useful, practical thing, always eas
ily within reach, and you will find
wore comfort in it than In being
idle and silly.
And the jumping off place?
Well, jump off. Everyone lias
to do it; there Is no remedy;
Jump oIT like a gentleman, and
leave something behind to be re
membered pleasantly.
Your future? That has been tak
rn care of, too, and millions and
millions have found it bearable.—

Dr. Haven Emerson, formerly
Commissioner of Health of New
York City, and now at the School
of Medicine of Columbia Univer
sity has uisnibuted the following
fourtee i points about alcohol:
1. Alcohol is a cause of death,
2. Alcohol is a cause of pri
mary disease.
3. Alcohol causes disabilities
through inheritance.
I. Alcohol lowers resistance to
infection. '
5. Alcohol increases suscepti
bility to poison from heavy metals.
(5. Alcohol increases mortality
rate of infections.
7. Alcohol increases the sever
ity, complications, and time of re
covery from industrial accidents.
8. Alcohol increases the prev
alence of venereal disease.
fl. Alcohol increases the general
morbidity and mortality from oth
er diseases than those duo direc
tly to the use of alcohol.
10. Alcohol shortens the span
of life.
11. Alcohol is a depressant
drug, a protoplasmic poison.
12. Alcohol delays and renders
inaccurate neuro-muscular re
13. Alcohol reduces judgment,
discrimination, endurance, and
precision of action.
14. Alcohol reduces consump
tion of milk in the United States.
According to government reports
this country spent in 1922 the vast
sum of $1,580,671,296 for the op
eration of elementary and high
schools, or $14.47 per capita.
In the expenditure of money Cal
ifornia leads with $25.30 per per
son, South Dakota is next with
$23.92. There are many states a
liead of Wisconsin, the figures for
this state being $14.82. The south
ern states are the lowest, Arkansas
spending but $4.91.
During the year 1922 this coun
try spent almost as much for to
bacco in its various forms. The
total amount, according to the best
government estimates was $1,445,
000,000. V
But the educational and tobac
co bills of the country are small
when compared with automobiles
and the things that go with them.
During the same year, according to
government estimate, the people
of the United States spent $3,739,
936,854 for automobiles, trucks,
tires and replacements. In feder
al, state and municipal taxes auto
owners paid out $471,548,000. A
total of 6,685,035,280 gallons of gas
oline was used in this country
during the past year. At an aver
age price of 20 cents per gallon,
this would amount to $1,337,007,056.
In other words our total auto bill
per year, .including the purchase
of machines, tires, replacements,
taxes and gasoline is $5,548,482,010.
One of the tasks before the school
boards of Wisconsin is the hiring
of teachers. In discussing the em
ployment of teachers in the rural
schools, Jennie S. Owen of the El-
Dorado (Kansali) Times, says:
“As far hack as we can remem
ber our dad was the senior mem
ber of the Wood Tick Hollow school
board and by reason of his senior
ity said the final word in the
hiring of the teachers. For many
years it was our duty when a shy.
pretty, starched and be-ruffled
school ma’am came knocking tim
idly at our front door to escort
her to the field where father was
plowing corn, stacking wheat or
raking hay. We quaked in silent
trepidation as, barefooted, we pick
ed our way through the sand burr
patches and over the stubble fields
toward the autocrat of the school
board. Our heart went out in sym
pathy to the scared little teachers
when wo sensed that he did not
approve of them. He did not often
err in judgment in his selection as
we recall the roll of those who
taught us our-A. B. C.’s and multi
plication tables and the re'st* of
country school lore. There was |
one, pretty Fanny Naill, who must |
have been one c.C the advance j
guards of flapperdom. She had a !
tousled head of yellow golden
curls, beaux galore, the Big Boys
numbered among them, and she
was known to declare a holiday
and send the children home when
the desire to attend a circus or
picnic overpowered her teaching
inclinations. She was paid the mak
nifieent salary of $17.50 a month**
and she was not rehired the second
term. Once we were partners In
crime with a little miss who really
was older than she looked. “He
never will hire me if lie sees hew
little I am,” she said fearfully as
wo drove bumpily in her buggy
along the ends of the rows to
where father was plowing. “.Let's
drive up close to him so you won’t
nave to get out of the buggy ana
he won’t notice how short you
are”, we suggested which we did.
She was hired and made an ex
cellent teacher, but the little de
ceit always pricked our conscience
a little until wo grew older and
learned that Napolean who was
small of stature, would never get
off his horse when he wanted to
make a good impression

While good health is desired by
most everyone, health is often
spoken of as being a matter of
good fortune. In reality health is
the result of good habits—good
health habits and good food hab
its. The home economics exten
sion service, lowa State College,
has prepared a few pertinent rules
which most anyone can follow.
Good health habits:
1. Take a full bath more than
! once a week.
2. Wash hands before each
; meal.
3. Brush teeth at least once a
4. Get plenty of sleep each
night with windows open.
5. Exercise part of every day
6. Have a bowel movement
each morning.
Stand tall. Sit erect.
Good food habits:
1. Do not eat when excited, har
ried or angry.
2. Drink four to eight glasses of
water daily.
3. Chew slowly and chew thor
4. Eat a good breakfast —cer-
eal, fruit, bread, milk, egg.
5. Eat a.n ample lunch with
something hot.
6. Eat a simple supper with no
fried foods, no heavy meat and no
rich dessert.
7. Serve meals at regular times.
8. Eat some other vegetable
than potatoes each day.
9. Eat some fruit each day.
10. Serve no tea or coffee to
Someone has coined the simile,
“as lonely as a hitching post.” But
come to think of it when have we
seen a hitching post? Where does
Old Dobbin park on his infrequent
visits to town? The hitching post
has become obsolete and to the
few horses that are driven these
days this must seem an unfriendly,
inhospitable world.
Once not so many years ago a
hitching post was appurtenant to
every home, but it has gone the
way of the livery stable, the picket
fence, the hammock and the fam
i ily photograph album. Two de
cades ago no home could pretend
to hold up its head in a neighbor
hood unless it had a hitching post
in front. It was a sign of respecta
bility. A home without a hitching
post was like a home without an
iron foot scraper on each side of
tho door.
There were many kinds of hitch
ing posts. We remember one in
town which was topped by an iron
horse head. When children, we
watched for the house before which
it stood on our rare trips to town.
Then there were tall stone slabs
with an iron ring at the top through
which to pass the horse’s rein.
In country homes, hitching posts
were usually the straightest,
smoothest fencepost that father
could find and there were as many
as were grown daughters in
the family, for woe unto the beau
who indiscreetly tied his nag to
one of his choice trees which were
the pride of his heart. And peev
ish were the daughters if there
were not enough hitching posts to
go around on Sunday nights.—Jen
nie S. Owen in Eldorado Times.
Of course, Mr. Editor, if the
pavilion at Devils lake really is
to take on the architectural form
of a castle or manor house then it
might fittingly be termed Chateau.
| If not, then the application of such
! a name becomes absurd. When for
the first time I saw the structure
three weeks ago it. was in such an
unfinished state that its design was
far from apparent.
Anyway, its location was so un
fortunate that I could not have told
whether the plan was French,
Romanesque, or of the Renaissance.
; That old, sweet first view of our
beautiful lake rudely intercepted!
That was what cruelly hurt me.
1 1 really beheld nothing but the
; vandal intrusion of that obnoxious
1 eclipse. What earthly reason was
there why it could not have been
placed 100 feet or so to the west.
Now one simply feels blanketed,
I smothered as he rolls down the
beautiful Warner road and swings
;( n to the avenue straight down to
the water’s edge—No! Smack up
against a barricade of boards!
That offense apparently is now a
past remedy, and perhaps it makes
no difference what the displeasing
| barrier is called. Many explosive
terms have been used regarding it,
but none fits the crime. It was so
utterly needless, too. Was a land
scape architect consulted? It
j would be interesting to know if
the state architect, who must have
! drawn the plans, sanctioned the
site. But, after all, is the build
ing a chateau? The old Cliff House
was indeed somewhat suggestive of
I a Swiss chalet. It’s a dear old
: name —Cliff House, and its perpet
| nation mig ht be desired, but what
ever happens nothing can excuse
the offending location of the new
dance hall.
Madison, May 23.
The excitement of the contest is

Bamboo and vicinity who have as

Miss Mary T. Durward, who is
spending the summer at Durward’s
glen, has arranged a flow'er garden
at the cottage in the form of a
delta —delta for Durward. When
living her father, the poet and
painter, grew beautiful flowers
on the same ground but during re
cent years but little effort lias
been made to beautify the approach
to the old home. Miss Durward
is having the dead trees, killed
by the fire two years ago, removed
from the woods. During the past
winter she was with her brother,
Andrew, in Texas. She will be at
the old home during the summer.
“The Flower Grower” contains
an article on “Tulip Cultural Di
rections” by R. B. Griggs of this
city. The publication comes from
Calcium, New York. cul
ture has been a favorite hobby
with Mr. Griggs for many years
and he is able to give excellent
directions for growing these
beautiful flowers.
j At the rear of his home on Third
! street, A. J. Gemmill has one of
I the finest beds of tulips in town.
Mr. Gemmill has followed direc
! tions given by R. B. Griggs and
the results have been highly sat
isfactory. The present season has
been too dry for tulips for they
naturally require considerable
moisture. Some of the growers in
town have been using water with
good results.. In Holland where tu
lips grow to almost perfection
there is an abundance of rainfall
and cool weather —just what these
flowers like.
Physical Culture Magazine for

a Bernarr MacFadden Chart, which

Dr. A. B. Stout, formerly a mem- j
ber of the Baraboo High school
faculty, writes from the v -New York ‘
Botanical garden that his family
and himself spent the winter in
Florida where Dr. Stout was mak
ing a study of the avocado. The
avocado is one of the American
laurel trees which bears a fruit
similar in <=ize and shape to a large
pear, and is often eaten as a sal
ad. The fruit is semitropical and !
is frequently called the alligator
pear. The fruit is rich in oil and
protein—rich as beefsteak and
weighing about one pound. A:
tree bears 150, 300. 600, 1,200 or j
even more of the pears.

j This is considerably higher than
; the average found for all Wisconsin
entries, which was only 65 per cent.
The National Seed Corn Show, of
which the Sauk county exhibit was
a part, was the largest seed corn
show ever held. It was designed
to call the attention of American
corn growers to the condition of
, their seed corn and the need for
germination tests, to assure a good
crop. Fully 27,411 farms in 45
I states had entries in the show,
which was in effect a series of 1731'
county exhibits. Each ear was
tested for germination, and the
| judges were ten of the leading corn
i authorities in America.
