In the October Woman's Home Com panion, Justus Miles Forman begins a new serial storv, a love story of an American girl 0 to-day. It is a "votes for women" story, and begins spiritedly. The principal character, Hope Standis'li, is just finishing her school course. On commencement day the principal of the school, Miss Wanley, says to the girls: "'. . . He true to your womanhood! Never forget that in creating you wom en an all-wise providence has given you a great privilege, and has placed you under a solemn obligation. Remember that the crown of womanhood is sacri fice. The woman who suffers long and is kind, who envieth not, who vauutcth not herself and is not puffed up, who does not behave herself unseemly, who seeketh not her own, who thinketh no' evil, beareth all things, and is not easily I provoked it is she who finally attains 1 to consideration. Not for you, my dear young lames, me neat ami dust of the I arena; not for you the struggle of exist ence; for vou. rather, the sweetness and light of the home.'" The effect of this speech on young Hope Stan lish is brought out in the fol lowing paragraphs taken from the story: "And this was the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and nine. And this was progressive America. "Hope shook her head with a kind of bnfilel wonder. She couldn't rid herself of thp feeling that this decorus seen1 was in reality a grotesque farce which the surviving Miss Wanley and her twelve graduating disciples had amiably agreed to ena:t together on their last day. '"As you are sheltered and protected from life's harsher aspects. . . .' "A tag of recently acquired knowl edge rose to fie surface of Hope's mind, and she permitted herself to wonder for an instant if the surviving Miss Wanley knew that more than half of the young women of sixteen to twenty, the country over, were at that moment workiug for their bread. She had a wild impulse- -a kind of mischievous stone-throwing. snowballing impulseto jump to her feet and put the question bluntly, just to see what would happen." Miss Sadie l'ifield of Academy street leaves to-day for liethel, where she will remain for several days at the home of her sister. Frof. J. a.

Mr. McKenzie plans to attend the Red Sox-Giant aerie this afternoon. j Mrs. Ernest Brown, who has been visiting at the home of her parents, Mr. A Million and a "Quarter Scholars Will Attend This Year. More than a million and a quarter boys and girls will attend the American high schools, public and private, during the school year, 11112-13, according to the estimate of Dr. P. P. Claxton, United States commissioner of edu cation. Dr. Claxton has benn as sured by Mr. Alexander Summers, sta tistician of the bureau, who has made a special study of the matter, that tho estimate is a conservative one. Of tho number given 1.1(H),IHM) are estimated for tho public high schools, and 150,01)0 for the the private secondary schools. Tho American high school" has grown phenomenally in the past dozen years, its development in the lust two or three years being apparently greater than in tho remarkable decade just preceding. Since the twentieth century opened the number of public high schools has al most doubled and the number of students is eusily twice what it was at the beginning of the century. The most cheering feature of the whole matter for tlie American citizen is the very great increase in the proportion of those who go from ttie grades into the lngli school. Formerly (only a very fev Teats ago, in fact), the high school was chief ly attended by children of the rich and moderately well-to-do. To-dav nearly one-fourth of the children who enter the elementary school eventually pass into the high school. The exact figure is 22 per cent., if negro children are included, and .25 per cent if whites only are con sidered. This is particularly significant, since certain critics of the public high schools have, through a misunderstand ing of the olllcial reports, contended that a much smaller percentage tluin is here given hail the opportunity of hieh school training. The fact remains that from 22 to 25 of every hundred children who enter the schools at' all go on into the high school. Almost equally significant for public education is the fact that by far the most rapid growth has Icen in the pub lie high schools. J he private secondary schools show a healthy increase 25 per cent in attendance since 1000; but the public high schools have actually doubled their attendance in the same period. To make the comparison on another basis: In 1HSM) forty out of every hundred high schools were private, ana mxty puhlie; in ishmi the propor tion had changed to 23 and 77; and tr day there are only- III private secondary schools for every 84 public schools. As tc, the number of students: In 18!)0, 'Al per cent of the pupils were in private high schools and 08 per cent in public; to-day only 12 per cent, of the pupils arc in private secondary schools, the Our Store Closed All Day To-day ---- Columbus Day Next Week You will find here a complete line of fall and winter Underwear, Hosiery, Blankets, Robes and Knit goods.

President Taft has taken the lead in promoting the spirit of international peace and our relations with foreign powers are extremely wit is factory. The question of currency has been carefully studied, and for the first time, under the lead of President Taft, scientific treatment has been accorded to tariff legislation, and a commission of experts has been appointed by him to give tariff schedules scientific and non partisan and disinterested investigation in every detail and item of each sched ule.

Is it any wonder that the people believe in their high whnol and give but scant attention to the occasional hostile criticism that is heard! The public high school is win ning because the people are satisfied that it is doing its work; they realine what it has meant to the rising stand ard of American citizenship. The people have shown their appre ciation of their high school in the mot direct way possible by supporting -t unfailingly and generously. They nave faith enough in it to pay huge sums of money year after year that the high schools may do greater and greater work. More and more attention is being Says the Tobacco User Is "In the Wrong." In an article entitled "Fighting the Deadly Habits," in the October Ameri can Magazine, Charles B. Towns, a great expert in nandling those who nre vic tims of alcohol or drugs, has the follow ing to say about tobacco: "Vou can't talk to me about tobacco. The tobacco user is in wrong. It under mines his nervous strength. It blunts the edge of his mind. It gives him 'off- days,' when lie doesn't feel up to his work. It always precedes alcoholism ami drug addiction. I've never had a drug case or an alcoholic case (excepting a few women) that didn't have a history of excessive smoking. Inhaling tobacco is just as injurious as moderate opium smoking; and the sain? treatment is used to destroy the craving. There's a plain fact that has a jolt in it for some of you smokers. I'd like to train about a million men in this country to just say, 'It's tobacco1' like that 'It's to ba'ceo!' whenever they hear a man say he isn't feeling quite fit. A million people saving 'It's tobacco' every day that would get ns somewhere."
