While the boys are taught to get as much out of the woods ea did "Huck" Finn and Tom Sawyer, the Idea of a dally service is Impressed upon them. They are first to be help ful to one another.- courteous to strangers, and helpful to . women and children. Hundreds of scout masters have eent to national headquarters reports telling of the good turns the boys are doing. Recently in Twenty-third street, New York, a half blind old man was walking along near where construc tion work was being done. Pieces of lumber were being carried out of the building. Three youngsters seeing tha old man making his way feebly along, and fearing he might be hurt, rushed up to him and helped him pass the dangerous spot. When a lady asked them if they were boy scouts they said, "Yes indeed, this Is the third good turn we have done today." Straightaway they made a third knot in their neck ties. William Archibald, of 638 West 14 2d street, a scout master, says that his youngsters have volunteered to lead the blind boys to and from the public schools. Howard W. Baldwin, Great Barring ton, Conn, report's that the boys are helping their fathers at business, and are assisting aged women to cross the streets. Frank W.

Re ports from other Scout Masters show that the boys are doing many things willingly and smilingly for their par ents since they became Scouts that they used to do grudgingly before. One boy set free a trapped dove; another climbed a tree to rescue a cat; still an other made a specialty of unchecklng horses, and speaking to drivers about the harm of high checking. W. H. Butler, Floresville, Texas, speaking of the "dally good turn," writes that the "boys are visiting the sick, doing little acts of courtesy and kindness to each other and home folks. They tie horses for ladles, are charitable, thoughtful of language, run errands and help each other; sacrinflce some pleasure, per form duties more cheerfully, think of others rather than self and are kind tc animals." Edmond W. Fitz-Sfmon, The Rec tory, Tuxedo, N. Y, writes about the daily good turn "some of the boys the first to arise in the morning and light the fires for their mothers.

Mrs. John Nicholas Brown, of New port, R. L, whose husband was a de scendant of one of the founders of Brown University, is a firm believer in the Boy Scout activities. She has taken an energetic part in helping the formation of patrols and troops of Boy Scouts of America in Newport, and is anxious to do everything she can to further the work throughout the country. She has a son, John Nicho las Brown, Jr., in whom there w&s much public interest following the death of his father several years ago. The youngster, now eleven years of age, has two ambitious brothers at present. One is to be a Boy Scout on his 12th birthday, and the other to go to Brown University. Young Brown shares his mothers' enthusiasm for the Boy Scout work. Mrs. Brown, a wealthy and influen tial woman, supports the work because through her son she realizes how the Boy Scout activities appeal to young sters, and because she appreciates the educational and character-building Qualities of the work. Through her own early training and through her husband's Interest In Brown Universi ty, she has come to devote a great deal of time to educational work, and in addition is connected with prac tically all the Important charities of Newport. Mrs. Brown held in her home the meeting at which the Newport Coun cil of the Boy Scouts of America was organized. She invited many New port citizens , and knowing the "Scoutcraft," she quickly convinced these men of the necessity of taking up the work. As the result of her energy and enthusias mthe Boy Scout Movement in Newport is well start ed. Many sons of wealthy residents are members, and are taking part in the work in company with poor boys. Roosevelfs Interest in the Boys. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, whose ideal of boyhood addressed to the Boy Scouts of America recently received so much public attention, showed his in terest again in the boys in New Or leans. In an address he said: T think that the Boy Scout movement is the greatest thing going. I believe in it The Power Behind A day's good work Grape-Nuts FOOD 'There's a. Reason' but I though if it did nothing more than purify my blood and build up my system It would be a great benefit to me. I bought one bottle, took it ac cording to directions. I commenced to feel some improvement. I got another. I took about two-thirds of the seconl one and to my happy surprise I ex pelled a monster tapeworm about sixty feet, head and all complete, and here is the cause of all my six years' suf fering. To think of being completely cured or six years' torture In about two weeks, I am "certainly grateful for what the Qukare Herb Extract has done for me." The Quaker Health Teacher has proved to you all who thoroughly, and have great hopes for its future." ; You; : do n not know how much I would like to pitch In active ly and help the work, but It Is a phy sical Impossibility. I want to see the Boy Scout movement a great success in this country; it is Just what we need, and I will, always be glad to help it along." Scoutmasters Keep National Head quarters Busy. There are now 3,000 scoutmasters registered with the Boy Scouts of America. Applications for certificates are being received in the national headquarters so fast that an increase in the executive force has been neces sary. The routine work in granting the certificates is growing rapidly. The references of the applicants must be Investigated, letters must be writ ten, entries must be made in various books and finally the certificate must be made out. A girl, who writes a splendid hand, has been engaged to do nothing except fill out the certificates. She has writen as many as ion cer tificates in a day. As a rule the list of scoutmasters grows at the rate of 300 a week. While there are 3,000 scoutmasters registered, it is estimat ed that at least 1,000 other young men are in charge of patrols through out the country. They take the boys on hikes, give them drills and encour age them in various outdoor activities while qualifying to receive certifi cates. Jacob Riis to the Boy Scouts. Jacob A. Riis, whom Colonel Roose velt called America's foremost citizen, is a member of the National Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Being deeply Interested in the opportunities of the movement, he has written a let ter to the boys in which he says: "Tell the boys to be square, loyal and dutlfuL We have been fighting over men's rights till we have almost lost the note of duty that is the key note of life, if it is to count. Let the Boy Scouts help us recover it. The heritage of youth is strength. The duty of strength is to be kind, for so it is harnessed to God's work in His world. Hence the "good turn done every day" is bed-rock in Scoutcraft. It fills the day with cheer. When we have dutiful loyal square boys, our men of tomorrow can be trusted to see the country through."
