A Matter of Honor.
Tho- regulations Introduced by H« cro
tarjr of the Treasury Cortolyuu «l>l**ar
to work to everybody's satisfaction.
Under the new system passengers are
put upon their honor In declaring the
nature and value of tbelr possessions,
while ample time Is given to prepare
and sign the formal declarations to the
customs authorities, and there Is no
long delay and tiresome searching of
personal effects upon landing. The
new system was in full force and ef
fect when the American line steamer
New York arrived at the city after
which she la uarned. on Saturday.
The ship had a big load of passengers,
and there was much delight over the
changed arrangements. One passen
ger thus enthusiastically expressed
the feelings of himself and many
others: "Putting a good American —
and I believe most of them are pretty
good—on bis honor Is the best way to
make him better. 1 have been across
tha ocean many times aud I certainly
have objected to the corralling of |»as
sengers In the saloon and forcing
them to feel as If they were undesira
ble citizen* by an Inquisition that was
not only unpleasant to them but also
to the artlng deputy collectors asking
the questions You cannot fancy what
a relief It was to be able to come up
the bay out on the deck of the steam
ship Instead of In the close saloon.
Sometimes we never got a glimpse of
the city until we were almost In dock,
and sometimes w« never got a whiff of
the air of the bay except as It came
through the ports. 1 tell you this will
make people want to travel abroad
more and will attract foreign travel
«*s to our shores. '* Secretary Cortel

the Troy Times, has given new proof I
of his realisation of public needs. Cy I
the change thus wrought he has swept j
away all cause for complaint that the
government is unduly exacting and In
Regu latmg the Auto.
Rural communities have exhausted
the armory of weapons against auto
mobilists. and with varying success.
The mutual feeling aroused by the
warfare has not been favorable to the
spirit of Christian affection. It has !
remained for Mlddleboro. Mass., to
adopt the gentle measure. It Is to bo
hoped the result will Justify the
means, and that Mlddleboro will boa
sab* leader In the middle way between
the Hcylla of nuto traps and tho
Charybdls of lightning nights of "devil
wagons'* In Mlddleboro.- says tho
Troy Times, tho Automobile club tins
asked permission to take tho matter
In' hand and to meet out-of-town chauf
feurs with n red ling and n card.
Halted by the ling, the chauffeur Is
handed tho card, which bears these
words: "Tho selectmen of Mlddleboro
are going to stop fast driving through
this town. Doforo resorting to several
permanent traps they have kindly
given the Mlddleboro Automobile club
permission to try and regulate this
traffic. Won't you personally help us
when going through by running not
faster than 12 miles an hour? You
can go through the town nt 12 miles
nn hour In five minutes: If you go fast
you ennnot go In less than two nnd n
hnlf minutes. Will you not do your
part In helping to make trnps unnec
essary In Mlddleboro?" If Mlddleboro
can make the rural constable and the
driver of tho "chug chug" vehicle

Public Drhool Teachers
Should Be Pensioned
By CHARLES H. KEYES.
lupfrlniratfinl mi khMk. Hanford. Conn.
II KitK nr© five cogent reasons why pension* should he pro
vided for the teacher* of the schools to which you are entrust
ing the education of your children.
First—That is tho test teaching that emanate* from a
soul that devotes itself with u singleiu** of purpose to the
guidance, the training and the inspiration of youth. No
teacher can do the best work for our children while at tho
samo time coni|)ellcd to be busy with plans for securing u
livelihood when the dava of service in tlie schoolroom are
Second—Teacher* of the larj;e«t ability are every year being drawn
away from the school service in which they have proven their high capac
ity to enter on more remunerative field* of endeavor. Unlesa wo would
see the education of our children turned over to second-rate women
ami to third-rate men, we must provide reward* that would pennit onr
ablret teacher* to consecrate their live* to the service of our schools.
Third —The efficiency of an army always tlt-jM’iuls ujioii tho character
of the recruiting department The great army of teacher* should alway*
attract many of the brightest and ablest young men and women who
year hv year graduate from our leading educational institutions. Nay,
the oervice should be so treated to attract young men and women of
character and brains to prepare for it as an honored and honest profession.
The current reward* of the teachers are so grossly inade<piate that the
very material we most need in our schools is being diverted to other
Fourth—There are in many of our schools men and women with tiro
largest capacity for growth who are earning unusually good salaries from
which they ore laying by a fund to take care of themselves in old age.
To do this, they are compelled to deny themselves the opportunity to !
travel, the time to study, the ownership of books, etc,
Fifth—ln thousands of the older cities ami towns of our union there j
a*c teacher* who have practically worn themselve* out in the service of .
our schools, and yet hate been able to save little or nothing, and cannot j
see that it is their duty to retire to privation or to charity. Such, no
official has the criminal courage and hardncM of heart to turn out
to alms or starvation, and as a result they are spoiling the temper* or
abusing the intellects of whole schoolhon*** full of children in return -
for their confinement by the community at hard labor in the schoolroom.
But this cruel and inhuman punishment of faithful old Burlier* who '
ought long ago to have honorably retired on pay goes on iu a thousand

dividual. On the other
hand, thank* to their organ of vision, nil other men ln-come “pntho
acopic”—they find out the sentiments of their neighbors by carefully
examining their physiognomies. Such conditions, of course, have brought
about complications. There are plenty of cases where n man needs
to express to his neighbor sentiment* which he is far from feeling townnl
hi**; heme he will use nn expression which will be purely a work of
hit will, nnd will not correspond to his true internal emotion. Such stale*
are what we call hypocrisy or deceit, slates in which will or calculation
lakes (he place of true feeling. In such cases a certain hesitation almost
always will lie evident in the manner of expression. And it In-hooves
each man to develop sufficiently his faculty of “pathoKopy” in order that
he may Ik* able to distinguish a real smile from a false one, real tears
from false tears.
The physiognomy, ln-ing tho center of onr whole energetic symbol
iiitn, both material and immaterial, has contributed enormously lo the
bettering of the species. Man Ims perfected himself. He lms made
himself beautiful. So the physiognomy, by giving us accurate informa
tion concerning the stnte of our superior centers, upon which our whole
life depends, makes us capable of reading our*own soul correctly.
Thus it is that every man laughs, cries, blushes, or turns pale to
relieve himself first of nil; nnd all other men cnpablc of feeling or
thinking, seeing him do thus, arc forced to do likewise, in order to
relieve him in turn. The human physiognomy, being one with the brain,
perfects the species nnd makes all men one among themselves.

ESS ——J should say “Father” and
“Mother” ns we did when
we were young. Parents should teach children obedience, too, for
there is altogether too much laxity among children. A child should bo
taught, to know its place nnd not show oIT before strangers.
For more than thirty years no one ever brought a cigar into my
house. You people talk about the tobacco trust aud yet you support
it by buying those filthy weeds nnd wreck your
lives smoking cigarettes.
Wlmt do I think of women who smoke?
They are not women. They are mere crea
tures. They disgrace their sex. They are
worse than animals. It is a foul lmbit for any
one, but when a woman does it she unsexes
her Bel f.
There is altogether too much attention paid
to clothes. A woman who makes gaudy clothes
nnd dazzling jewels help out her appearance
