s In view of the decrease already ac

enormous losses annually inflicted up
on the people of this country by the
ravages of insects, and in view of the Ri

loss that will continue as long as a be
federal migratory bird bill fails to dr
pass, it is impossible for anyone to put of

purely technical grounds-against that wi
measure. The Weeks bill, before the
lower house of congress, is precisely of

TOLD HER LIFE'S AMBI IONi
Small Girl Somewhat Crudely Ex
pressed Her Desire to Be a
Teacher When She Grew Up.
At one time or another during the
ward school life of a little girl there
prevails the ambition to become a
teacher. Perhaps it is the indisputable
authority possessed by the hand that
wields the rules or the nonchallant dis
play of wisdom on topics surrounded
by the most inaccessible difficulties
to the small boy and girl. They will
nearly always tell their ambitions to
a well liked teacher, and one rather
surprising declaration was given by a
little maid in one of Miss Clara Town
send's room before she became princi
pal of the James school.
Among the special favors coveted
by the youngsters is the permission
to stay behind after school and clean
the blackboards. One evening a little
girl was given the desired privilege. a P
and while engaged in the task she
struck up a shy sort of conversation skiL
with Miss Townsend. Finally the
usual confession was made. beti
"When I grow up. I am going to be
a teacher," she announced.
"That so?" pleasantly asked Miss
Townsend. "And why do you want
to be a teacher?"
"Well," was the rather surprising r
answer, "I'll have to be either a ly
teacher or a lady, and I would rather
be a teacher."-Indianapolis News. Lo
