Ono consoling feature of tho
weather is tho fact that tho ice bill
does not run up very rapidly.
Nobody ever complains or sets up
a bowl against "big business" when
a large factory is being erected. And
it Is generally "big business" that
erects the big factories.
The graduates of the Ottawa
schools will bo adorned with caps
and gowns, and thus keep In line
with many of tho larger schools and
Some parents want a new teacher
every time their child falls to pass
the examinations and is not pro
moted. That is the best way to en
courage poor teaching and dishonest
Again the question is up to many
boards of education whether to' re
employ teachers before school closes
or after. If a teacher is not to be
re-elected, the board should advise
at an early date so as to give the
teacher a chance to get a position
The total net-income from Btate li
cense on automobiles thus far this
year is $199005.72, which goes into
the good roads fund. Notwithstand
ing this magnificent sum paid by
auto owners, there are still a few
farmers who think the auto has no
right on the road, and who continue
to show their lack of good breeding
and common sense by monopolizing
Every citizen can do his share
towards putting his town upon tho
map or In putting it upon the shelf.
That so many towns are vegetat
ing' or dead, is because so many of
thelr people talked them down or
Tefusedto help them when oppor
tunities offer. If every citizen would
consider himself an advertising
agent to boom his town and in every
way advance its interests, tho growth
would be healthy and sure.
Tho board of education of tho vil
lage of Perrysburg are to be congrat
ulated upon their evidence of prog
ress and enterprise, and artistic
taste In parking tho school grounds
and doing the work after plans and
suggestions as made by professional
landscape gardeners, who know their
business. The work is now too near
completion to be "enjoined" or to bo
changed to harmonize with tho an
cient ideas of that class of Perrys
burg people who are opposed to
progress. Tho board have a way of
"doing things" and completing them
before the chronic knocker has a
chance to got In his work. Our vil
lage council might do well to emu
late the example of tho school board
in this respect.

"EUGENICS AND WOMAN'S
Mrs. John Martin, of New York,
"The future should He in ladies'
laps. So long as the ladies are in
counting, houses, factory and polling
booth, the laps arc empty and the
future in danger.
"Woman suffrage is merely an ap
pendage to woman Industry; and
woman industry means the destruc
tion of the race. As the strongest
and most efficient women go to sal
ary earning in place of" child rearing
the generations decay. Every inde
pendent woman who takes a high
salary as a substitute for a bevy of
babies is murdering posterity.
"The strong, healthy, big-brained
bairns who might bo born are sacri
ficed by more Paris dresses and au
tomobiles. -The cradle is emptied1
that expensive restaurants may be
filled, the home deserted that luxur
ious girl apartments may be crowd
ed. A high salary for men means
early marriage, fine families and do
mestic morality. High salaries for
women mean deferred marriages,
women politics, empty homes and
"We are living in an age which at
taches inordinate importance to tho
improvement of conditions, although
the farmer knows very well hat suc-
cess In his lino depends just as much
j upon tho quality of hist seed and the
' grade of his stock as upon the culti-
I vatlon he gives them. Yet in human
affairs we always assume that the
human stock itself is perfect. It
seems undemocratic and impolite not
to believe so. It seems uncivil to tell
people that their children are not
worth raising, that they are not
worth educating, that they ought
never to have been- born.
"If we tell them that if they have
any more children like that, they de
serve hanging, we feel that they
won't love us any more. We never
think of doing anything so rude. On
the contrary, we organize a few more
classes for defectives and build a
few more asylums.
"Without eugenics the nation will
one day, like the Titanic, go to the
bottom. We may flatter ourselves
that the biggest, fastest, richest,
grandest nation afloat cannot sink,
but it can."

those who advocated free trade on
farm products while high tariff was
left on other industries. Teddy has
tried to fool tho farmers by saying
that Taft was against them and
wanted to ruin farm product prlcob
by getting reciprocity, which moans
free trade. Taft comes back at
Teddy with a knockout blow by pub

CLEARED UP THE MYSTERY
8on Enlightens Mother as to Queer
Remarks Alter Partners' Names
Tho young man's mother was
Btraightening up his chiffonier andsho
picked up one of his dance programs.
This Is part of what she read:
1. Two-step. X.
Waltz. Miss Brown, pink lady.
Two-step, Miss VanSant, blue.
Two-step. Miss Dusall, red,
black In hair.
6. Waltz. Miss Dawson, old rose.
7. Two-step. Miss Barnes, gold
8. Waltz. MIsb McKay.
9. Two-step. Miss Buchannon.
"Son," said the mother that even
ing, "what are those remarks after
your partners' names? Miss Brown
would not be pleased to know she had
been called the pink lady."
"Why, mother, that's all right. Lots
of the fellows mark their programs
like that. You see, a fellow can't al
ways remember a girl when ho meets
her for tho first time, there are so
many of them. So, to avoid embar
rassment, ho notes some distinguish
ing mark. Now, Miss Brown wore a
pink dress. Tho X indicates, of course,
the girl I accompanied to tho dance.
Miss Dusall wore a red dress, but so
did others, so to be suro not to waste
any time hunting her I noted that she
had a black band around her hair. Tho
girls with whom I am acquainted I
know without any descriptive notes.
O, it's all right, mother. In that way
we never have to go up to a girl and
ask her If she is herself." Indianap

THEN ASKED HIM HIS NAME
Now Boarder Tells Table Neighbor HIa
Infallible Method In Handling
The now boarder dropped in at din
ner time and sat next to tho only
other man at the table. The new
boarder thought It was up to him to
be affable and friendly.
"I suppose you've boarded here for
some time?" he asked the solitary in
dividual. "Yes, quite awhile."
"How Is it, any good?"
"I find it pretty fair; I'vo no com
plaint to make."
"Landlady treat you decent?"
"Well, perhaps I ought to "
"Never mind, never mind," said the
new boarder. "I'm on. Did you ever
try chucking her under .the chin.
That's always the way to get on with
these boarding-house landladies. I can
always get 'em on my side. Treat
theBo old dames nicely and I'll bet you
can live in the house a month and

me hand her the 'con' when she comes
in. I'll bet that this time tomorrow
she'll be handling me the best in the

HAD NO TIME FOR SLUMMING
After Answering Impertinent and Su
percilious Questions Hostess
Hands London Lady a Jolt.
The Rev. Sylvester Home, the noted
liberal clergyman and member of par
liament of London, was talking at a
dinner about charity.
"The trouble with most charity," he
said, "is that it is administered in a
grudging, condescending spirit. Char
ity, to have any effect, must be ad
ministered in a spirit of absolute sym
pathy a spirit, I may also say, of ab
solute humility, 'To uplift, get under
neath,' as tho philosophic Ade well
"There was once a London lady, tho
wife of a millionaire promoter, who
decided, being rather bored, to go in
for charity. So she rang for her elec
tric brougham and glided in a luxur
ious sllenco down to the Now Cut.
"Tho lady selected tho very worst
house in the New Cut, and sho paid a
call of about half an hour on tho poor,
tired, underfed woman who lived
there. Tho questions sho asked this
woman were supercilious, and imperti
nent. Tho lady had a very good time.
"But when she came to go, her hos
tess, whoso cheeks were now un
wontedly red, rather Bpolled her good
time by saying quietly:
"Well, good-bye, madam. I don't
suppose I'll see you again. Tho fact
is, I haven't time to go slumming my
