Open-air schools for Tacoma - why not?
They have tried them in Chicago, where the weather gets cold, and they have made a wonderful
record. They had several in Seattle last year, and the reports are that they are a great improvement
over the old closed school room.
Why not start the movement in Tacoma? -
[Baby Hands ' |
BABY HANDS! IN all the world there is noth
ing half so strong, in all the world there is nothing
half so pure. It seems at times as if God creates
babies that weary men and women might not aban
don faith in Him.
What tongue can tell, what pen can describe
what a baby means'? Everything that is holy, that
is beautiful, that is good, clusters around a baby. It's
tiny hands fasten around our hearts with a mighty
grip that naught but death can loosen, and men and
women are nearest God when they kneel at a bab} r's
feet. A halo ever rests over mother and infant, as
if they had caught something of the radiance of an
other world as they lingered at the eternal gates.
Every baby is a completed miracle, and is so
priceless that kingdoms are worthless in the balance.
For that morsel of humanity a woman has paid
a terrible price and a man has pledged his honor and
his life. It was for them the millions who have gone
before strove; it is for them that we must strive if we
are men.
Recalling Hiram
THEY'VE STARTED THE recall on Governor
Hiram Johnson in California. Taking the republican
elephant's tail and trunk in either hand, Hiram has
tied 'em in a hard knot that promises to hold; and
besides, he's turned the governing business over to
his understudy and is going off bull moosing down
They may get the necessary 45,000 petitioners
against Hiram, but Californians are a humane, sym
pathetic people, and large numbers of them look on
Hiram's treatment of the old Taft gang as simple
cruefty to animals on a par with vivisection, vaccina
tion, etc.
Certain it is that it is going to be a powerfully
hard job to recall Hiram for doing politics in any
place he selects or any way he pleases, short of a
corrupt way.
I The Standard Smear
AND NOW THEY'RE trying to smear Teddy
Roosevelt's honor with the Standard Oil grease.
Wonderful, isn't it? No matter how high a man
may climb, be he judge, congressman, senator or even
president, the tentacles of the octopus reach for him.
All honors, all positions, all responsibilities are alike
to that foul cabal of corruptionists.
Teddy may be entirely guittless, but John D.
Archbold swears he donated $100,000 trying to reach
him. Not even the presidency of this republic waS
too high a thing to be bought and contaminated if
possible. And they don't hoot at old John Rocke
feller when he gets down on his knees in church and
prays that the world may become better.
TAFT is out of it, for nobody is paying enough
attention to him to even abuse him.
MILLIONS of bicycle riders called for good
roads for 20 years and did not get 'em, but thousands
of auto owners now are demanding them and getting
them, yet some people say muscle, not money, rules
the world.
IP A. V. Faweett fails to be elected lieutenant
governor he will be in demand at Los Angeles,
where they are trying to get an anti-treat ordinance
ALL the candidates insist they are poor men
and that a poor man stands no show under the direct
primary which makes elections expensive, so where
are we going to get any officers?

Why Not Open Air Schools?
This city is now proposing to erect over half a million dollars' worth, of new school buildings.
Wouldn't it be a good plan to consider the open-air school plan in the drawings for these buildings?
Of course the open-air school is as yet an innovation. It will probably encounter some opposition. -
The results may not even be as great as the enthusiasts advocating it now claim. But the records already
shown where the plan has been tried are sufficient to cause school boards to consider the matter seriously.
The open-air school will bear investigation by the Tacoma school board.
(Ag explained by the Beauty Doctors.}
Each morning, when you first, awake.
Massage your face and head.
Roll over fifty times and take
A dozen eggs in bed;
And after that, before you dress.
Run swiftly round the room
About two hundred times, no less—
(This keeps one's youthful bloom.)
Use seven kinds of vaseline
And eighteen sorts of paste
To keep the epidermis clean
And help reduce the waist.
Drink orange Juice and lemonade
From dawn to late at night.
The while a masseuse and a maid
Are all the while in sight.
Relax at least, ten hours a day,
And exercise for ten.
Sleep eight hours—that much anyway—■
Then exercise again.
Don't read —It wrinkles up the eyes;
Don't eat—lt makes you fat;
Don't laugh—all beauty hints adviae
Decidedly on that.
There are a dozen other tasks
That one must always do.
Like wearing rubber beauty masks
And rubber corsets, too.
No single minute can you spare
For friends or love, maybe;
But oh, consider, lady fair.

From Mentone and Monte Car
lo, from Stirling castle and the
Prater aud Blarney stone, from
all the great and quaint show
places of the old world way, I re
turned across the sea to the place
of my nativity, to see Corinne
Barth. Miss Barth was reputed
beautiful as any Olympian god
dess, and once upon a time her
father had cornered eggs or wheat
or butter-beans and amasued a de
cent fortune. My friends had
cabled me home, declaring it the
golden chance of a lifetime.
Some reckless persons bad sung
my praises in the lady's ears. It
was the boldest attempt at match
making; but from what I had
heard I was very glad to leave
the Riviera for the golden chance.
As for Miss Barth—well, I should
see her on the morrow. In the
meanwhile I must be amused. My

After a bit I found myself wish

Some worthy ancient had grown
dingy in service. They had re
moved him to be cleaned. His
blue and yellow robe lay in a heap
in the corner. Moved by a mad
whim I threw the garish toga
about my shoulders, removed my
hat and stepped in the absent
wax man's place. No one had
seen. I frowned like Vulcan hen
pecked and waited.
