How England 'Grows. A great deal of interest Is taken in England In the question of coast protection. The ocean, assailing the cliffs, gradually tears them away, but this very process furnishes a defense for tbe land by building up long beaches of sand and shingle which ar rest tbe waves before they can attack the cliffs. An effort Is making to pre vent, or better regulate, the removal of this material for construction and road building, because In many places Its removal has permitted the sea free ly to exert Its power of erosion. The orSnance survey has ascertained that in the last? half century England has lost 6,640 acres by sea erosion and gained 48,000 acres through re claiming land the existence of which is mainly due to material brought down by the rivers. A vllSlP 1 16 WINNERS-SCHOOL EXHIBIT ®lje GREAT TRUTH SIMPLY TOLD Warning Hero to Those Who Neglect to 8et Down Their Priceless Discoveries. A noted author In the Satevpost writes: "The commonest sign of fa tigue is found in feeling of weari ness." There are times when we are almost led Into believing that this is true. Equivocal and ambiguous as the state ment may seem, at the first reading, it becomes clearer when read over four or five times. In fact, we don't know when the proposition has been stated with more clarity, after one masters the language in which it is couched. Have yon not often read things and said to yourself: "How often I have thought that very thing. Why did I not put It down in imperishable words?" It is so with this. Doubtless, in your humble way you have often thought that your weariness was a sign of fatigue. At those times you thought a living truth, but did you write nnd tell some magazine of your priceless discovery? No. You al lowed somebody to come along, per haps years after, and do it. The moral Is that when yon think a great thought, put it down on paper at once. Even If you do put it away somewhere and forget it, posterity may find It. Now, many times In our career we have had feelings of weariness. Some of our frlend9 have been misguided enough to attribute It to laziness—an awful word, particularly among friends. But, when we were weary, It was not laziness that ailed us. It was fatigue. And we never knew the truth until we read the magazine article men tioned. We have been slandered for years by a wrong Idea.—Exchange. HIGH HONOR FOR SMALL GIRL Face of Ten-Year-Old Has Appeared on Millions of Coins of the United States. The government of the United States in 1835 made an offer of $1,000 for the most acceptable design to be placed upon the new cent coin soon to be issued. Some Indian chiefs traveled from the northwest to Washington to visit the Great Father and then journeyed to Philadelphia to see the mint, whose chief engraver was James Barton Longacre, who invited them to his home. The engraver's daughter, Sarah, aged 10, greatly enjoyed the visit of her father's guests and during the eve ning, to please her, one of the chiefs took off his feathered helmet and war bonnet and placed It on her head. In the company was an artist, who im mediately sketched her and handed the picture to her father. Mr. Longacre, knowing of the competition for a like ness to go upon the cent projected, under the Inspiration of the hour, re solved to contend for the prize offered by the government. To his delight the officials accepted It, and the face of his daughter appeared upon the coin, which was circulated about the nation for nearly a century.

This is rather contrary to the general supposition, but is true nevertheless, as the statistics of the above comniittee'are based on the find ings of the health conditions in many of I lie rural communites and many cities iu different parts of the couutry. GROCERIES Our stock in this de partment is always fresh and complete. We carry only the lines that give en tire satisfaction to our reg ular patrons. Others should profit by their experience. KRAABEL & KRAABEL Hope, North The reason for' tills is not that the country is not as healthy a place to bring up children iu as the city, but that for the past ten to twenty years the cities have had more or less health supervision iu their schools, free dis pensaries and clinics, including dental dispensaries, where even the very poor can obtain the most skilled medical treatment and advice for little or no charge. Many cities employ school doctors who give every child a gen eral physical examination at least once a year. Xearl.v all city schools have a school nurse who is iu the school every day, whose duty it is to exclude any child from school who shows symptoms of a contagious dis ease, to call on the children who re main absent on account of sickuess and insist upon the parents giving them proper medical attention It is also her duty to make arrangements with the different hospitals and dis pensaries for medical and dentul treat ment of children whose pareuts cannot afford to take them to a private doctor or dentist, to take the children to the hospitals and clinics with the permis sion of the pareuts, and to urge par ents who can afford to have their chil dren properly cared for, to do so. It is this, together with the sanitary, well-ventilated and lighted school buildings, that is giving the city child a squarer deal for health than the couutry child is getting.
