Entered as second class matter at Boise,
Idaho, August 7, 1913, under act of con
gress >f March 3, 1879.
High above the silent city,
In the glaring, blazing light,
Toils the typo at his keyboard
Through the bustling, busy night;
See his'fingers, flying 1
See the "mats" drop into place;
Glist'ning metal lines are forming
And the "story" grows apace.
i':,; 4 •'=/' : . . ; : - ,
Now it is a tale of mercy—
Nature's touch that makes men kin.
Or. perhaps, of human sorrow,
Or the soul-destroying sin.
Politics, love and religion;
Tales amusing, tales to thrill;
All this goes to make the paper—
Crucible of good and ill. _
Mariners may roam thb ocean,
Scientists may show tÜe light;
Statesmen plan for greater freedom,
Men of books their message write;
But without the printer's labor
And their works would be in vain,
For the printer spreads the knowledge,
To all mankind's lasting gain.
Now the make-up all arranges,
Editors alert stand near,
Then the mallet and the planer
PPounding on the "forms" we hear;
All the "ads" have been inserted
And the paper is complete,
Soon from grinding, whirling presses
Goes the issue to the street.
Light uupon the east horizon
Shows the dawning of the day,
When, his nightly labor ended,
Home the printer brakes his way;
Home to kiss his slumping children,
Glad to see those he loves best;
On his lips a murmured prayer
Seeks at last his well-earned rest.

LITTLE COUNTRY THEATER
FOR RURAL SCHOOLS.
Plan to Stimulate Interest In Whole
some Drama and Entertainments.
A suggestion whereby the country
schoolhouses of the United States may
make themselves attractive as centers
of vigorous community life In a novel
way Is contained in a bulletin Issued
by the bureau of education of the de
partment of the Interior at Washing
ton descriptive of a "Little Country
Theater" established by the North Da
kota Agricultural college at Fargo.
N, D. Primarily the aim in establish
ing tlse little theater was to stimulate
an Interest In wholesome drama and
original entertainment among people
living in the open country and villages.
The Little Country theater is a large
playhouse put under a reducing glass.
It is Just the size of an average coun
try town hall, haring a seating capaci
ty of 200. The stage is thirty feet in
width, twenty feet in depth, with a
proscenium opening ten feet In height
and fifteen feet in width. There are
no boxes nor balconies.
In the auditorium proper the deco
rations ure plain and simple. The col
or scheme is green and gold, the gold
predominating. Three beams finished
in golden oak cross the mansard ceil
ing, the beams projecting down sev
eral feet on each side wall, from
which frosted light bowls and globes
;are suspended by brass log chains,
the indirect ligbtlug giving a soft and
subdued tone to the whole theater.
The eight large windows are hung
with tasty green draperies. The eur
i tain is a tree shade green velours. The
I birch stained seats are broad and not
crowded together. The scenery is
[painted in plain colors. It has a eer
ftnin realism nI ki ut it. The doors are
: wooden doors, the windows have real
[glass In them. Simplicity marks ev
erything, both on and off the stage. It
Is n model theater for the open country
or small village.
The object of the Little Country the
ater is to produce such plays as can
be easily staged In a country school,
the bnsement of a country church, in
the sitting room of a farm home, in
the village hall or any place where
country people assemble for recrea
tion. It will test the different forms
of entertainment by giving all eligible
students an opportunity to appear in
at least one play a year. If the play
proves satisfactory people residing in
the rural districts will be informed of
the fact. By this method the Little
Country theater is expected to become
a vital force In socializing the country
In North Dakota.
"You told tue the citizens of your
community would stand by you as one
man." said the campaign manager
"Yes," replied Senator Sorghum.
"And all the letters we have received
bring forward only a solitary voter
who is going to support you."
"That's the one I had reference to."—
"You have n night key?"
"Of course." answered Mr. Meekton.

keeps It locked tip in the safety depos
it so that I won't lose It.'*—Washing

"Is tt the latest thing in cars?"
''I guess so. It has never got me

"So your work is monotonous, is it?
Why don't you get a job in a shoe
