A Sweedish servant maid, finding
that her mistress was troubled with
sleeplessness, told her of a practice of
the people of her country who were
similarly affected. It was to take a
napkin, dip it in ice cold water, wring
it slightly and lay it across her eyes.
The plan was followed and worked
lske a charm. The first night the lady
slept four hours wituout awakening
something she had not done before for
several months. At the end of that
time the napkin had become dry. By
wetting it again she at once went to
sleep and it required considerable force
to rouse her in the morning.

Bishop Cosgrove of this city, under
date of February 17, has issued regu
lations for ths observance of Lent in
the diocese of Davenport. Ash Wed
nesday falls on the third day of March.
All the days of Lent are fasting, ex
cepting Sundays, and all persons who
have completed their twenty-first year
unless dispensed, are obliged to keep
the fasts. By a dispensation the use
of flesh meat is allowed ot the princi
pal meal on four days of the week, but
the use of fish and flesh is not allowed
at the same meal during Lent. The
best mortification of Lent is to abstain
from the use of intoxicating drinks,
because drunkenness is such a wither
ing curse, and counts its victims by
many thousands. On its extirpation
depend the blessings of health and
the happiness of homes and the salva
tion of many souls. The choicest self
denial for the holy season is to make
in your heart antf carry out in practice
three promises: To abstain from all
intoxicating drinks during Lent to
keep out of the saloon, and'to say one
Our Father and three Hail Marys
every day for the suppression of in
temperance. This covers Bome of the
chief points in the Bishop's announce
ment. There are, of course, the usual
arrangements in regard to church
services and other matters of similiar
importance.—Davenport Tribune.
Free Text Books.
For the purpose of giving the voters
of the Independent School District of
Exira an idea of the extra burden of
taxes that will be imposed upon them
by voting for free text books. I have
made the following calculation upon
the assessed valuation of Exira and
Exira Independent District which is
$138,583 as given by the County Audi
tor January 30, 1897.
We will place the first estimate at
the maximum cost of books and en
rollment. The present enrollment is
250 and tlio average cost of books,
-aper, ink, etc. per pupil is about $2.00.
-'herefore to supply the school with a
complete set of Dooks and paper, etc.
would cost the district $500. But let
us add here that this would not be the
case because the books now in the
hands of the pupils would be used and
the board would only supply the books,
etc., as the pupils need them.
Since the assessed value is $138,583
and the total first cost $500, (supposing
a first cost) the increased taxation upon
each dollar would be 3.6 mills and
upon $100 is 36 cents. It has been
proven in the states where the free
text book law is iu force, that the
average wear of books is from five to
six years. Then the increased tax
covering a period of five years would
equal one-fifth of 3.8 mills, or less than
four-fifths of a mill per dollar or 7.2
per hundred dollars for each year.
We must remember that this law is
not a theory. It is in operation in
twenty states and in many countries
iu Europe. It has also been in opera
tion for five years in Capital Park
district, Des Moines. I have found in
every instance nothing but commen
dations for the system. Mr. W. M.
Ward, of Blue Springs, Nebraska, says
that he has observed, both as a
parent and teacher, that below the
High School the expense for text
books per year is about 80 cents per
pupil and iu the High School about 55
cents per pupil making the average
about 40 cents." It is potent to every
mind that Mr. Ward's statement
places the above estimate too high
but it was our purpose to make a max
imum estimate. A few arguments in
favor of the system.
1. It is cheaper than the present.
2. Pupils are always supplied with
text books hence no timels wasted.
3. The attendance is much larger.
4. It facilitates a better grading of
the school.
5. The pupils take better care of the
books than when they own themselves.
6. It makes it possible for every
child to attend school,—rich or poor.
My advice to the tax payer, to the
tax payers is, let us not vote against a
measure that will place the means of
an education at every door from the
hovel to the palace, merely because
our tax will be increased a few cents.
A republican form of government is
only so strong as the efficiency of its
general educational system. Promote
the universal education of her citizens,
—we lengthen and strengthen her
existence,—hinder or prevent it—we
hasten her decay. C. W. JOHNSON.

Topeka, Kansas, Mat-ch 2.—Repre
sentative Walters, of La Bette county,
today introduced a bill in the house to
make the enforcement of the ten com
mandments apart of the criminal pro
ceedure of the state of Kansas. The
text of the bill is "An Act to Give
Statutory force to the Ten Command
ments, and it reads as follows:
Whereas The men of the present
generation have become doubters and
scorners, and,
Whereas, They have strayed from
the religion of their fathers: and,
Whereas, They no longer live in
the fear of God: and,
Whereas, Having no fear of pun
ishment beyond the grave, they have
wantonly violated the law given from
Mount Sini, therefore, be it enacted by
the Legislature of the State of Kansas."
Tnen follows the ten commandments,
each commandment being a section.
A graduated scale of fines is prepared
for violation as follows:
For having any other God," $1,000.
For worshiping a graven image,"
$1,000 and one year in the penitentiary.
For taking the name of the Lord
in vain," $500.00.
For not keeping the Sabbath day,"
For refusing to "honor thy father
and thy mother," $500.00 and six
months in prison.
For committing murder," hanging.
For adultery," imprisonment for life.
For violating the commandments
which say "Thou shalt not steal,"
"Thou shalt not bear false witness,"
Thou shalt not covet," fine or impris
onment, at the discretion of the court.
The bill will probably pass the House.
