With waste paper of all sorts bring ing the owner one cent a pound, it ought not to be necessary to appeal to the public to save paper and sell it. Still 65 per cent of the paper is wasted. Wood pulp is scarce. Scandinavia is having a big market in Europe, so is Canada having in England; the U. S. gets .that much less for her mills. A ton of waste paper returned to our own mills corresponds to almost a ton of wood pulp. Save your waste paper, and send for the junk man. Humane work is now an activity in the state, and the teaching of kindness to the human beings and to dumb ani mals is recognized by the state as a function of good government. You are appealed to as a good citizen to help make humane work in all its branches effectual in your community. In these days of unrest, think kindly, speak gently, show mercy. Practice this in your home; teach it to your children. Let this be our motto: I will first of all seek to be kind. The individualist is as a rule a poor party man. He has opinions of so def inite a nature that it is hard for him to yield to those who differ with him. It is not in his nature to make comprom ises, to give and take in order to ad vance the essentials. His mental hab its make him a stickler for principle, and an advocate of theories. To take half a loaf to him is moral cowardice; if he can not get the whole loaf, he will starve. The individualist is intolerant of any change and of any condition that impose upon him the demand to act out of harmony with his notions of what is for the best. He is tolerant only of those who agree with him. He may be right, but he is always certain that he is right. He is impatient of those who move in wide detours in or der to reach a destination that he cov ets; he wants the goal in one straight jump. The path of life is to him the airline; the arduous climo around ob stacles, taking time as an assistant to finish safely, looks to him like failure. The intelligent and well informed indi vidualist is often an idealist, courage ous and aggressive. He sponsors new and, sometimes, wholesome measures, and causes others 10 think, but he sel dom possesses the patience to see the measures carried into practical opera tion. Tnat is done by the men who un derstand the power of compromise and co-operation, and who are willing to abide by the law of growth and natural evolution, rather than by the fiat of the spontaneous creation of genius. The agitation for better paid teach ers in our schools is bearing fruit. Next fall when school opens the teachers will be that are more in keeping with the importance of the services they are called upon to render in the community, than heretofore. However, the problems which these better paid teachers have to solve in the training of the boys and girls are the same under high wages as they were under low wages, and the teacher; who enters the service of the school j under increased pay may find that the j community will be less tolerant with; the teacher’s handling of these prob-; lems than before. The period of the J war with its disintegrating influences: upon life in general has also affected; the home and school influence over the | children. The homes are realizing that | the old checks upon the freedom and pleasures of children of school age ought to be re-established. It is not wholesome for the boys and girls of high school age to play the game of life | as if they were adults. The exper- j ienced teacher is in accord with the ■ parents on this proposition; but it is a; question if the parents without the i support of the teacher, or the teacher without the support of the parents, can solve this problem satisfactorily. The full co-operation of the home and the school has never been more desirable! than just now. Such co-operation can 1 be had only through the willingness of parents and teachers to come together and try to find out what the problems are, and mutually agree on how to pro ceed, in order that there may be har mony in the policies of the school and the homes. It is a matter of adjust ment between the interests of the home and the school in such a manner as to benefit the children of the community to the highest possible degree.

The Indian of Alaska crosses his sledge dogs with the wild wolf, and so has produced a dog which is enormous ly strong, can live on very little, can stand any degree of cold, and which can pull a sledge better than any other animal of its size. The dog and the fox have been crossed, also the dog and the jackal. Even the lion and the tiger have been mated. In a group of trained animals seen in New York a few years ago was a lion-tiger. It had a tiger’s body faintly striped, but the head of a lion with a mane. The European pheasant, which, from in-breeding, was becoming liable to dis ease, has been enormously improved i and strengthened by crossing with the ; wild Asiatic pheasant brought from i Central Asia. In the same way new va rieties of deer have been obtained by i crossing the small Persian deer with I the European fallow’. The ordinary white ferret is an ami able creature, but rather slow\ Crossed with the savage little wild stoat, the result is the fitchet, smaller than the ferret, but much more active and fierce, and the finest creature in exist ence for working either rats or rabbits. -CONVEYED THE WRONG IDEA Two Anecdotes That Show Necessity for Careful Wording When Us ing the Wire. The Stokes house at Lenox, finally converted into a hotel, was one of the “show places” of the region when An ! son Phelps Stokes, Jr., now secretary j of Yale university, was an undergrad i uate. - The young man perturbed his moth er, just before a Christmas holiday pe riod, by proposing to invite a number of his classmates to Lenox. His class was that of 1896, and in the telegram, not caring to mention the exact num ber, but intending merely to show that they were classmates, he said: “Am inviting ’96 men to Lenox for the va cation.” She promptly telegraphed back: “Do not ask more than 40. Have 35 house guests here now.” Which puts one in mind of a tele gram Capt. “Archie” Butt once sent, while he was Mr. Taft’s aid. Mr. Taft had been eating many big dinners In public, at the height of the open sea son, and he longed for a moderate re past. So Captain Butt telegraphed to the next gathering at Chicago: “Make it simple. Butt.” The telegram was made to read, “Make it simple, but —” and the collation outdid in sumptuous UV Of lha A HF¥est place to trade after aIQ EDGERTON, WISCONSiN AT THE LYRIC.

British Coal Abundant For her size, Great Britain has monk and better coal than any other coun try in the world.
