BOY SCOUTS' ONE BIG NIGHT The evening of February 8 is the date that every boy scout in the land remembers. It is the red-letter date in his calendar. For it was on Feb ruary 8 that the Boy Scouts of Amer ica was incorporated, and it is an es tablished custom for all scouts to cele brate the event annually. The custom has assumed the form of a huge birthday party for the whole organization, starting with or at least including February 8. and continuing through Lincoln's birthday, February 12. This is the eleventh birthday year of the scouts. The Idea back of the celebration is to bring more definitely to the attention of each community the value of scouting as a program for work with boys for the development of character and training for citizen ship. At the hour of 8:15 on February 8 every registered boy scout, no matter where he may be, is supposed to stand at salute and commit himself anew to the scout oath and law. In most cases the scouts gather for this cere mony in their troop meeting places The emphasis of this celebration is such as will impress the solidarity of the movement upon the entire mem bership, as well as foster the feeling of the individual responsibility of each scout to the organization as a whole. Heretofore the scouts have stood at salute when their watches an nounced 8 :15, which, on account of the difference in time between East and West did not make the act simultane ous. This year the effort was made to have the salute at exactly the same moment everywhere, corresponding to 8:15 eastern time, the time of the clock in the national headquarters. . FORMER SCOUTS IN COLLEGE An interesting development in scout ing relationship with the universities has been seen in the work of the Ithaca (N. Y.) council. Boy Scouts of Amer ica, In connection with Cornell uni versity. A meeting of the students at tending Cornell university who have been scouts was held. The local coun cil brought before these students their desire to be of assistance to them and serve them in every way possible while they are at college, and to bring before them their opportu nity to help scouting nationally. Sev eral of the young men who have been scouts are helping with the local work. One of them who came to the meeting was Chou-son-King, who has been an assistant scoutmaster in Shanghai, China. At Syracuse university a similar movement is on foot in the way of get ting together students who have been scouts. Recently at Oxford university In England, National Educational Direct or Lome W. Barclay investigated the University Scout club there and found it a very helpful activity. This sug gestion may be of real service in col lege towns, not only to the studepts but to the boys of that community. SECOND CLASS SCOUT HERO. One of the recent recipients of the gold honor medal awarded by the national court of honor of the Boy Scouts of America is Joseph H. Mar dls of East Liverpool, O. While still a second class scout Mardls, when on a camp trip, went to a midnight flra with his scoutmaster, W. B. William son. As the two passed along a high tension wire carrying 2,200 volts of electricity burned and as it fell struck the scoutmaster across the chest. Fully realizing his own danger. Scout Mar dis made every effort to save his com panion, by trying to pull him away from the wire. Having succeeded in doing this, badly burned as he was himself and suffering intense pain, he worked over the unconscious and dy ing scoutmaster, rendering first aid un til he himself fainted. NATIONWIDE SCOUT GOOD TURN. "If there is any one time more than another when the good turn in scout ing should be emphasized and lived up to with double spirit it is upon the occasion of our anniversary celebra tion," said Chief Scout Executive James E. West in announcing plans for the celebration of the boy scouts' organization's eleventh birthday. "I want every boy scout and scout troop from coast to coast to do more turns, better turns than ever before. Make the good-turn idea so Infectious that all America will be 'doing it' in the same spirit which the scouts carry It out daily." SCOUTS GUARD UNIQUE TREE. The only specimen of a trailing juni per tree left In Pennsylvania has been placed under the care of the boy scouts of Elizabethtown. It is on a farm near that town, is a little less than two and a half feet high, yet has a spread of 45 feet, and covers over 2.000 square feet. Prof. J. S. Illick, chief of the research bureau of the department of forestry, who recently saw the tree, estimates that it Is at least 165 years old. GOOD TURN BY SCOUT CHIEF. The employees of the national head quarters of the Boy Scouts of Amer ica in New York gave the usual Christ mas tree to the officials and their children. Following the custom a pres ent was given to James E. West, chief scoat executive, but this time it took the form of an unusual good turn. The hat was passed, resulting in a 'collec tior of $91.47, and as soon as it was given to him. Mr. West announced that it would be used to relieve some sort of suffering among poor children.

"I haven't yet told you about the supper that the girl and the boy who were looking for adventures had when they visited Mrs. Gnome. "They were a very queer couple and no re lation to the oth er gnomes. Mr. Gnome was small because he was so lazy and Mrs. Gnome was very tall and thin. " 'I'm partly to blame,' M r. Gnome told the boy and girl, 'and so is she. We never started right and now whenever we Caught the Fish. think we may try to get back to the right road I'm too lazy and too Idle to care to go on where the traveling is hard. " 'You see, Mrs. Gnome began by spoiling me. And I began by letting myself become absolutely idle. We should have started fairly, each of us helping the other. But it has been all one-sided instead. " 'So I've grown smaller and small er and she has grown taller and taller. She hasn't grown beautiful, as you might think, because of her unselfish ness; no, on the contrary, she is quite a sight. That is because she allowed me to grow small, allowed me to be come spoilt. " 'She, from the first, caught the fish from the nearby brook, and captured the chickens, and gathered the vege tables from the farm she started off the edge of the woods. Then she fried the fish and roasted the chickens and boiled the vegetables.' "'Was that the wrong thing to do to them?' asked the boy. "'No,' said Mr. Gnome, 'but she should have seen to It that I went after the fish, and that I plowed the farm, and that I fed the chickens. Then she could look after the house. "Just then Mrs. Gnome put out an enormous tablecloth which she had in her linen chest in the trunk of a tree. After that she put the food on plates of leaves and poured clear water from a spring into shell-like cups. " 'Pray eat,' she said. " 'But won't you eat too?' asked the girl. 'And won't you talk to us?' " Talk to you,' said Mrs. Gnome. T haven't time. It is Mr. Gnome who can stop and talk. It's my fault, as he says. I look after the meals and I catch the fish. I even bait the hook myself! When 4t rains I cover him with a blanket of warm leaves and over his head I hold an umbrella I have made of toadstools. " 'He never has to do anything. It's my fault, as I said before. I have spoilt him, spoilt him so he never grew. But what can I do about It now ; alas ! alas ! It Is too late.' "And at that moment Mrs. Gnome again began to cry and yet Mr. Gnome smiled and didn't seem to be In the least upset because of Mrs. Gnome's tears. " 'You want It explained to you, I suppose.' he said, 'why I do n'ot feel sad over the sight of Mrs. Gnome's tears. It is all because I'm so small In every way. I have little or no sym pathy, I have little or no kindliness, I have little or no mind left for think ing good thoughts. There was a time when I dreamed of being great, but I became too easily spoilt. I wasn't strong enough to grow. I shrunk and shrunk In my body, my mind everything! And It all came from being too lazy and too fond of myself. 'But saying that reminds me of the journey you must take. I can tell you this much about it. You must leave me, of course, leave me here on my soft bed of moss where I am watched over by my hard-working wife, whose hard work I cannot really appreciate. I will stay here and slowly shrink until there is nothing left of me at all. There will be. as folks would say, "nothing to me." "'So I bid you a farewell, start off, be ready to take a long, long journey. At the end of it you will arrive at the House of Secrets, a house with many rooms. There you will find the answer to every question you ask. " 'But how will we know the way?' asked the boy. When It Rains. "All along the way there will be creatures who will direct you,' said the Gnome. 'Some of them w'll try to mislead you, but if you do not fear adventures you will always find the right road again. That is all I can tell you. Good-bye. "So they left the little creature who never grew any larger because he al ways had to live in comfort and lie on a mossy bed. Nor did they see his wife who spoilt him and kept him from amounting to something. And they went on for yet more adventures." Extermination? Botany Teacher Johnny, what can you say about germination?
