The Congrees of the United States has appropriated $30,000 for the purpose of enabling the secretary of Agriculture to ex periment in paper making. The question is, is it economy to ap propriate $30,000 to be spent in experiments along this line, or to remove the taritf on wood pulp and let us get paper from abroad. The speech of Senator Owen, of Oklahoma, on the election of United State Senators by a direct vote of the people, has elicited quite a good deal of comment from all over the United States. It is right, and it should be the case. The people as a rule are honest and in the main will elect honest Senators to repre sedt them. “Get your boy a.job now school is out and keep him at it until the next term begins. Give him to understand that it is unmanly to depend upon “dad’’ for pocket change and clothes. Impress upon him the fact that business men and corporations never select their men from loafers and idlers, and, say, let sister have a cour.-e in practical house keeping. Give her a list of duties that will be helpful to her and restful to her mother, and gently but firmly, break the news to her that the ability to cook and sew is just as much an ac complishment as is the power of endurance at the piano. If Bud die isn’t able to make his own living by the time he graduates the chances are against him the remainder of his life. If Sister can’t work button-holes and make bread before she gets a diploma, its a ten to one shot she will feel too smart to learn such things later on.
