Thin question relates to the function of the Red Cross in civil war. The treaty, in fact, does not provide any method by which the Red Cross may help to ameliorate the horrors M Ml war. When two governments are at war with each other. If botn art signatories to the. treaty. both are bound to protect the agents of the Kod Cross and respect the Red Cms flag B only one of the warring governments has fimed the treaty, neither is re quired to respect I he Red Crosa Hag or agents. In such a case, the two coun tries by special agreement may bind themselves to observe the rules of the treaty and thus avail th niselves of the humane administrations of the Red Cross.

BRIGHT OUTLOOK FOR COPPER. The vast Improvement that has come over the statistical position of copper uurinjr the past eighteen months Is ahown by the fact that the com bined Fto ks m Enrop, and the Unit ed States ..n the first of January, 1912, were but 31S44MU Iba.. while on the first of Ju'y KM", they were 401,301, 217 lbs.

WRIGHT PLAN. That State Superintendent Wright' plan to do away with fh long- summer vacation has many things to raooni mend It. w ill he recognized by all wh have given his suggertlons consider ation. 1' has advantages which apply to bot t o here and pupils, and Its prlnclp.il disadvantage appents to tic Its very novelty. Mr. Wright believes In cutting out the impractical, particularly In the higher grades, and Injecting morn of the useful into the courses of study. He does not believe In teaching a lot of things which cannot le used by the pupil wl n he becomes a wage-earner or a pio.'.;sslonnl man. He wants to better lit young people for useful ca reers snd atart them out In the wui i at an earlier age than the average Student now enters It. The atst' superir. .endent does not desire to add to the work of young pupil"'. Rather he would increase the number of play periods and have each teacher Instruct several sets of chil dren every school day to keep ths are held to be Incapable of entering in to a responsive agTcment concerning the Red Cross with the government which they are trying to overthrow. Thus no way is left open by which the Red Cress may legally and safelv give its Madly services In time of civil war. Imring the progress of tin recent revolution in Mexico the American Red Cross offered its services to the Mexi can government, but its offer could not pt-.i. As ,i result, the American Red Ctosh confined Its activities to the boundary line between the United Htatea and Mexico , .irlng for sick und wounded soldiers and destitute refu gees who were brought across the lor der or taking the risk of venturing oyer the line, without official protec tion, when Mat d'-manda of humanity were imperative, a was the case al Juarez, Nogales, Tla .luana and else whore. The importance .,f rigid governmen tal control of the use of the Red Cross is will illustrate.' i,v tho present con dition in China w here no official su)kt vision of such ii exists. Many dif ferent unauthorized organization arc nsinjr the anaMsog in tin- hope of pro :. ttni; th. lives and property of their mi mbefm Maes no restrictions on this use are enforced, the result Is that tin emblem has lost its sacred hara - ' r !n .i tar. . ,! a rid pathetic scramble for a protection which It cannot give. The following xtr.nt from private letter from Wuchang, China, bears di rectly usn this Mlnt: "AH sort of people are using the flag and the badge who have no right to do k i and many seem to think that a subscription entitles them to full im RMUrtty and prou-ctiou. The Red 'toss is ho badly abused hy tnlsn through peopio bringing their valuables to be stored under its aegis, that presently It laj feared the whole imputation will hoist the. h'kh al the last extremity as a last resort." At the Ninth International Red Cross Paftftraajea, to be held in Washington BSJM May. this omls.-uon of the Treaty of 0aajtVa to provide lOr Red Cross operations in civil war will probably be one of tin imMrtant topics tor dis cussion.

Tlu, ..a,,,,!,,,., (lf ,,. ,.,lU,v. Chrlsttun men of North Amsrtoa. The appeal follows: After five years of e pal iim-ntal and constructive work among the Protes tant churches of the United States and t'anada, during which it la- bad the hearty support and co -operation of the church and congregation leaders of all tlios, churches, the gen eral committee of the Layman's Mis sionary Movement, as inlled in an nual session, sends out this appeal to las Chrtatfcui men of North Aatartoa: About two out of three people in the United Stabs and Canada are outside the membership of all Christian ehurclv-s. Two out of ihr. e pie in i the world live in non-Christian na tions. Two out of three people in these non-i'liristian nations are beyond the! reach of the present combined mis sionary agencies of Christendom. And. In spite of these appalling Rat N. about two out of three of the church nn u liers of North America are contribut ing nothing toward the aggressive missionary work of the church at home and abroad. Manifestly our first husines- Is the! enlistment Of the other two-thirds of the members of the church as intelli gent, systematic missionary support ers and workers. And this can be done. Experience in nil denominations, and In every section of the United States and ("ana. hi, makes us confi dent that in most cases thorough- go ing metods of missionary education and tVnance. backed bv pray Offal and persistent work, would result in a doubling of the number of systematic missionary supporters during the flrs year, and In the enlistment of prac hi for missionary offerings Instead of BO annual or occasional collection with a simple and effective collecting device such aa the Duplet envelope 4.

Enlarg ed missionary Intei.st and contribu tions will not decrease, but will ma terially Increase1 l'ie offerings to the support of the jhcal church. This haa been proved to the point of absolute ib inotistration. The surest and SpoOOV leal way to t'plve anx local ilnuucial problem of the chin h is the genera tion of a healthy missionary spirit. fOr the sake of co operative action between the ohaaabea of any city or county we recommend i. the appoint ment of a city or county committee of the Laymen's Missionary Movement. uh re such coininittijca arc rnd already In existence, to. promote the adoption of th.e i 'i ijici pies and meth ods among all the churches within their n ach.

Mr Barry's uc cessor. whom he cliarges with IPjCOCn petency and with greatly increasing the expenditures bj the department.

Mining polltlen nnd Journal. Cato's Follow-Up System If a man lambasted you on the eye and walked away and waited a week before he repeated the perform ance, he wouldn't hurt you very badly. Between attacks you would have an opportunitv to recover from the effect of the first blow. But if he smashed you and kept mauling, each impact of his fist would find you less able to stand the hammering, and a half-dozen jabs would probably knock you down. Now advertising is, after all, a matter of hitting the eye of the pub lic. If you allow too great an inter val to elapse between insertions of copy the effect of the first advertise ment will have worn away by the time you hit again. You may con tinue your scattered talks over a stretch of years but you will not de rive the same bene 'IZ that would re sult from a greater concentration. In other words, by appearing in print every day you are able to get the benefit of the impr :ssion created the day before, and as each piece of copy makes its appearance the result of your publicity on the reader's mind is more pronounced--you musn't stop short of a knock-down impres sion. Persistency is the foundation of advertising success. Regularity of insertion is just as important as clever phrasing. The man who hangs on is the man who wins out. Cato the Elder is an example to every merchant who uses the newspapers and should be an inspiration to every storekeeper who does not. Fortwen ty years he arose daily in the Roman senate and cried out for the destruc tion of Carthage. In the beginning he found his conferees very unres ponsive. But he kept on every day, month after month and year after year, sinking into the minds of all the necessity of destroying Carthage until he set all the senate thinking upon the subject and in the end Rome sent an army across the Medi terranean and ended the reign of the Hannibals and Hamilcars over northern Africa. The persistent ut terances of a single man did it. The history of every mercantile success is parallel. The advertiser who does not let a day slip by with out having his say is bound to be heard and have his influence felt. Every insertion of copy brings stronger returns, because it has the benefit of what has been said before, until the public's attention is like an eye that has been so repeatedly struck that the least touch of sug gestion will feel like a blow.
