Conspicuous was tho object lesson

Tho British county council is ofton
controlled by landlurdu und other own
em of real estate, who, iu a spirit of
shortsightedness, Beek to keep rentb
high. Waltor Uunclman, tho British
Minister of Agriculture, plans to have
tho Btuto at largo build cottages for

when necoBsary. Tho stnto, ho CBti
mates, could build cottagea of ado
quato elzo and charactor, at J7C0 each
and rent thorn, without loss, at 75
conts a week. Ho thinks 100,000 such
cottages aro immediately needed.
With each cottago would bo provided
land suincicnt for small farming nud
gardonlng, Houalng 1b rognrdod as u
central evil In tho present situation
nllko of tho farm and tojvn laborer.
Tho insanitary and ill-provided cot
tugo which tho laborer on tho farm
receives in part payment for his labor
from tho fanner or which tho town
workman rents at an exorbitant prlco,
keeps tho farm laborer In cconomlo
subjection or promotes congestion In
tbo towns. Tho Uunclman plan com

in addition to $7G0 for tho cost of the

which works out about 7C cents n

A Slum Llfo Stcry.
Over against tho progress of tlx
nfiw attack upon the old slum, nt
shown by tho Ghent Congn r, may be
put a story (old k few ovi Dings bufore
at a IxjikIoii eliib. Mlsa 11., an old
maid with much money and no'lilng te
do, became Interested in slum v.oik
Sho rented rooms in a Jmion olurr
dUtrlct, gave ten nud cake tho Brit
lull climax of afternoon hospitality
to children who enmu and presttntoo
mntcrlal for any garments they woutC
make. Ono llltlo girl wotrled Miss 1!
Kliu looked so poor nud III nnd mis
erable. Finally tho Good Sarnaritnt
decided to Invito tho child to her coun
try homo for a weok'H holiday, nu In
vitntlun ncceptcd with delight. Tho
good woman inndo overy provloion for
her comfoit, a pretty bedroom, toys
und plnymatou und books, food nud
llowerd. Tho child of tho slums could
stand It only four days. Sho wanted
to go back to London tho second day,
sho cried all tho third dny nud neither
food nor fruit nor flowers could tempt
hur on tho fourth. Sho Invented ex
cuses to Indues her bcuofnetor to tuko
her back to her tonmnent dwelling
sho dreamt hor mother was dead, sho
had spralnod her foot, her father had
written that hor baby brother was 111.
Tho truth wan that her small Cockney
soul fairly nlckoncd for tho sights nnd
smells of tho shinm nnd that n ha'pen
ny worth of ohlps eaten from a scrap
of newspaper tanted to hor sweeter
than tv well-cooked omelette nerved In
n china plalu. "They aro nil thu
name," said ho who told tho story us
argument ugnhiat tho now crusada
against tho slum, tov.n-plunnlng for nil
tho peoplo, "they aro nil tbo otune;
you can do nnthing with them dross
thorn, fund thorn, pamper them, It Is
nil tho same, they will fnll back Into
tho gutter nud regard you na an enomy
for trying to lift them out."
"It is not nn effort to lift men from
thu Blums," cpjlotly replied tho St. An
druw's profosHor, "it in nn effort to
abolish tho slum, do that no ono will
bo born therein. For, If thoro iu no
hogwnIlow, ovon tho uwlno cannot re
turn to It."
Heaven, if tho town plans of John
tho Beloved aro realized, In to bo n
slumluBU city not a country-placo a
city lu which tliero will bo nolthcr t.or
row nor crying nor pain, for tho for
mer things of ycatordny will ha,vo
passed away. And this city, near nt

Cannot Fix Ago of World.
Tho ngo of tho world Implies flxlnn
tho date of tho creation, nnd scientists
do not nttompt to do that beyond say
ing that it must bo reckoned by mil
lions of years. Many Blbloa aro print
ed with tho year 4004 B. O. in the
margin of tho II rat chapter of Goneflls
Indicating that ns tho duto of the
creation of tho world. It is only with
in comparatively recent times that
Kolonco lms domonstrntcd boyond
doubt that tho world existed millions
of years beforo tho period formerly
assigned ns tho data of tho creation,
and that its occupancy by man covers
a period hundroda of times as long as
that formerly nccoptcd ns tho ago of
tho world ItBolf. Tho prehistoric
period moans tho period antedating

means of hieroglyphics which, ns now
