A WORLD TIME CENTER.
Eiffel Tower in Paris has been se
lected as an international post from
which time signals shall be sent twice
a day to all parts of the world. As
a center of world-time distribution it
will serve fifteen governments who
have adopted a uniform set of statutes
on the matter. Others are expected to
When the new system is working it

the world to know the proper time

From main points the time will be sent
to subordinate posts. And ships with
wireless equipment will also be kept
in touch with the signals so they can
calculate their locations within thirty
The students in the manual train
ing department of the Ishpeming,
Mich., High School are employed out
of school hours to do all work requir
ed to maintain the buildings and to
erect new ones. The work is done
under the supervision of the faculty.
Last summer $3,000 was paid to high
school students for labor.
They repair buildings and roofs,
build cement floors and walks and
brick walls, do plumbing and run a
cooperative school farm. Their most
recent achievement is the erection of
a gymnasium planned by one of the
seniors in the school.
This not only is a practical method
of teaching the boys efficiency in
manual training, but at the same time
is a good method to help students
A few years ago he worked in every
field, he drummed on every fence and
his whistle was echoed from every
wood. But Bob White is passing.
Hunters report that his absence is
growing more noticeable year by year.
It is true that laws have aimed at
his protection, but they have only
aimed. Each year during the quail
season great inroads are made upon
his vanishing family. Hunters com
plain that there is no longer any
"sport" in shooting him, but still they
Farmers object to game laws be
cause they feel that they are being de
prived of what rightfully belongs to
them. They feed the quail and so
think they should be allowed to kill
those upon their own land. From that
iewpoint alone their argument is per
haps just. It is not the farmer who
is killing off the quail. Their scarcity
is traceable to the expert marksman
from the city with his trained dogs,
who bags more game in a single day
than the farmer kills during a whole
But after all it is the farmer himself
who can least afford to kill the quail.
It is true that the farmer feeds the
quail, but he also feeds the insects
which prey upon his crops and the
weeds which rob his soil. Repeated
analyses of the quail's craw show that
his principal diet consists of 150
species of noxious weeds. Bob
White is in the field at dawn and his
labors cease only at dark. His inter
ests are merely self-preservation but
his interests are the farmer's own.
Certainly the farmer has no better
friend. And in return for his serv
ices, the least that can be done is
to post the fields in which he feeds.
The deer, the buffalo, the pheasant,
have gone. Bob White is going, too.
There is time 'to save him still. If
eleven months a year are not enough
protection then make it twelve.
A rich young spendthrift who be
comes a modern Robinson Crusoe is
the hero of D. C. Calthrop's romance
"Susette." The title is the name of
the heroine who lives with her father
on the desert island where the young
Crusoe is cast by a storm at sea.
The reason for the cultured old
Frenchman's exile and for the
rearing of his daughter so far from
civilization is made a later complica
tion in the story. The father dies, the
hero and the daughter are rescued by
a passing ship. The everyday life of
other people seems very starnge to
Susette at first, but she learns very
quickly. And the love story has a
happy ending. (Frederick A. Stokes,
