There were three schoolhouse! fires In Vermont last Saturday night or Sunday, which is the best time for such fires to happen if they must occur. Yetthe co incidence is enough to give warning that the ftres mav come when several hundred children are occupying the buildings and to Biiggest that the fire drill should not be neglected in any school, no matter how free from danger its pupils may seem.

It is the most heartless knave that will knowingly send false clues to the distracted McCann family in New York at the present time, and a dose of real punishment is what that kind of a knave deserves if he or she could be detected and brought to justice. The members of the McCann family have enough to worry nbout without being led on wild goose chases, having their hopes raised onlyto be dashed to the ground when the search is found to be based on lies. Yet there are fools and knaves euough in the United States to keep a great many worthy people distraught and worried into nervous prostration. If ever a pen alty for inflicting "mental anguish" was needed it is in connection with cases such an the disappearance of the daughter of this household. , Even though the Suffolk county grand jury could not find evidence enough to warrant an indictment in connection with the Arcadia lodging house fire, in which 28 lives were lost, it is possible to find evidence enough that such lodgt. ing houses should not be permitted to continue under the Arcadia system. It needed no grand jury investigation to convince laymen of that fact; and, hav ing been convinced, it is the duty of the public to redouble the demand until a reasonable limit on the number of occu pants of cheap lodging houses has been set and until a reasonable protection for those inmates has been established. We fear that already, the horror of the re cent fire having worn off, people aVe be coming a little indifferent to the real situation and are allowing the matter to go by default so far as they are con cerned. Eternal vigilance is the only solution of this problem, once the condi tions are remedied. Slippers! Slippers!

BADGER & COMPANY Furnishing Undertakers and Embalmers THE BEST Or AMBULANCE SERT1CK TELEPHONE 447-11 THE DANGER OP BASEBALL. The IS deaths during the season of 1013 show that baseball is not the en tirely harmless pastime that it has been considered to be; indeed, it ranks well up with football in the fatality list, al though, of course, the baseball season is much longer and has more devotees than has football, so that, relatively, baseball is not so hazardous as the more stren uous game. It deserves to be noted, too, that all the fatalities in baseball oc curred In contests outside of the so called major leagues, probably occurring in the school boy and "meadow lot" games where the participants are young er and less given to discretion than are the older followers of the game. The majority of the cases of death were caused by a batter being hit by tt pitched ball, again showing that where greater skill prevails there is less likeli hood of untoward results, as in the leagues there are only occasional in stances in which players are struck in the head with the ball, the professional pitchers having better control of the ball and the batter )eing more skilfui in facing the pitcher. But with all its chances for death or serious injury, base ball never will be discarded by the Amer ican public; and few people really wish it to be abolished in view of the' sur prisingly powerful influence for good it exercises among the younger generation, and on' the incoming tide of people from foreign shores. BUSHY TAILED RATS. They Will Steal Anything Bright That They Can Carry Away. ' In the west and north as far as nud son bay a species of rat Is found that has a tail like the squirrel and is known as the bushy tailed rat. al though more familiarly as the pack rat because of the curious trait it baa of packing off with everything it can get hold of and carry. One reads a great many things regarding the intel ligence of rats, but from all accounts these pack rats seem to be the clever est of the race. Trappers and campers out tell In, numerable stories about them. They will steal knives, forks, spoons, any thing, in fact, that is bright and porta ble, and will carry the stolen articles to their nests to play with or take them somewhere and. leave them in place of other articles they steal. Dr. Merrlani, the naturalist, was told a etory by a hunter which illustrated this odd fancy of the pack rat. The hunter had gone to sleep, leav ing a knife sticking in a log. - lie was awakened in the night by a noise which he discovered by the light of the campQre was made by a couple of pack rats sitting on the log in which the hunter had left the knife. The knife was gone and the rats were try ing to put a stick about a foot long in its place. They were making an ef fort to get the stick to stand up in the crack, but not having the skill to in sert it properly It fell repeatedly; mak ing the odd sound which had disturbed and awakened the owner of the knife.
