of beet sugar is a comparatively

The Scout Law
!. A Scout's honor is to *bo
trusted. If n scout says "On
my honor it is so.*' that means
that it is so, just us if he had
taken a most solemn oath.
Similiarly, if a scout officerj
snys to a scout. "I trust you on
your honor to do this," the
scout is bound to carry out the
order to the very host of his
ability, and to let nothing in
terfere with his doing go.
If ;( scout were to break his
honor by telling a lie, or by not
carrying out mi order exactly
when trusted on his honor to do
so, he may be directed to hand
ovet his scout badge, ami never
to wear it again, lie may also
be directed to cease to bo a
?J. A scout is loyal to the
President, and to bis officers,
and to his parents, his country, I
and his employers, He must
stick to them through thick ami
ami thin against anyone who is
their em my or who even talksj
badly of them.
3. " A scout's duty is to he
useful and to help othei - \ nd
he is to do bis duty before tiny
tiling el si . even t hough lie givt ?
up his own pleasure, or coin) oil,
or safety to tic it. W hen in I
difficulty to know which of two
things to do. he must ask him ,
self, "Which is my duty?'' that
is. "Which is liest for other
people!" ? and do that one. Hi'
must he prepared at nil) time to
save life, or to help inj tired
persons. And he must try his
best to do a good turn to some
bod) ex et y day.
I A scout is a friend to all,
and a brother to every other
scout, no matter to what social
class I he ol her heloligs.
Thus if a scout moots another
scout, even though a stranger
lo him. he inusl speak to him,
and help him in any way thai
he can, either to carry out the
duty In-is then doing, or by
giving him food, or, Iis l ill
possible, anything that be may I
iie in want of. A scout III list |
never be a snob. A snob is one |
who looks down upon another I
lo cau>e he is poorer, or who is
poor mid resents another be
cause he is rich. A scout
accepts the other man as lie|
llmls him. and makes the bosl
<>f him.
"Kim," t he hoy scout, wan
call, d by the Hindoos "Little
friend 91 all the world," and I
that is the mime that every
scout should cam for himself.
6. A scout is courteous: That
is, he is polite to all?hut
especially to women ami child
ti ll, and old pcoplonitd invalids,
ciipples, etc And lie must not
take any reward for being
helpful or courteous.
0. A scout ts a friend to
animals. lie should save I hem
as far as possible from pain,
ami should not kill any animal
unnecessarily, even if it is only
a tl x for it is one of (lad's
creatures. Killing an animal
for food is allowable.
7. A scout obeys orders of
Ins parents, patrol leader, 01
schoolmaster w ithout question.
Even if he nets an order he
does not like he must do an
soldiers and Sailors do, he must
carry it out all the same because
it is Ins dtltj : and after he has
done it In- can come and state
any reason against it, but he
must carry out the order at
once. That is discipline.
s. A scout smiles ami looks
pleasant under all circuit! |
stances. When he gets an order
lie should obey it cheerily -nut
readily, not in a slow, hang "log
sott of way.
Scouts never grumble at
hardships, nor whine at each
other, nor swear when put out
When you jtisi miss a train,
or some one treads on yout
favorite corn?not that a scout
ought to have such things as
coin- or under any unaoying!
circumstances. \ 011 should force
yourself to smile at once, and
then whistle a tune, and you
will be all right.
A scout goes about with a
smile on It cheers him and
Cheers other people, especially
in time of danger, for he keeps
it up then alt the same.
Tin- punishment for swearing
or using bail language is for
each oflCIICe a mug of cold w uior
to be poured down the offend
et's sleeve by the other scouts.
It was iho punishment invented
by the old ltritish scout, ("apt.
.lohn Smith, three bundled
> ears ago.
?'. A scout is thrifty, that is.
be miies every penny he can.
mid puts it into the bank, so
that be may have money to
keep himself w hen out of work,
and thus not make himself a
burden to others; or thai he
may have money to give iiwny
to Others when they need it.
