A few days since we found one of
our excellent teachers in preparation
for the opening of school, by looking
over all available material for beau
tifying the schoolroom. Some love
ly prints in child study and nature
scenes were being artistically tinted
and mounted in our heart. We re
joiced for the children that would
not only have such a teacher but
that could lose some of the tedium
of long study hours in a rest for
the eyes and mind by attractive
pictures on the wall.

daily attendance, two premises
which denote high grades a syllo
gism of desired progress.
Mr. and Mrs. Orie Brown, of

Twenty-four States now have the
excellent statute law . known as
Mothers' Pension. In our town the
need of this , law is forcibly im
pressed. Two widows, one with two
small boys, the other only one child,
a daughter. All three children are
of school age. Their mothers seem
to be making every effort to earn
a living doing laundry and such
other work as they can find. Con
sidering that they pay five dollars
per month house rent and do not
average fifty cents cash per day any
one can read between the lines. We
hardly think any institution could
care for these children for less than
ten dollars for each per month, yet
if this amount were allowed the
mothers the family could be kept
intact. A plan that would be bet
ter in the majority of cases for the
children and much cheaper to the
State. The next time you vote for
the J. P's. ask them how they stand
on a mother's pension law.
