Hawkeye Realty company and Leo Von
Hein. The first five opened up under
the new general statement of consent.
The Civic Federation contends the
new statement of consent is illegal.

one statement of consent in existence,
and that another could not be legally
secured with ' one already in effect.
The cases against Messrs. Mass Von
Hein, and the Hawkeye Realty com
pany are brought on the ground that
their properties were reopened after

more living in a single house on lower
Iowa street recently vacated by the

. When Knowledge Is Valuable.
- The faculty of having one's mind
pigeonholed is of great value. Some
people have their mental bookcases
and storeroomv piled up with masses
of material, all valuable perhaps in
their way, but Jumbled up and piled to
gether so that when any one thing is
wanted it Is not to be had without
overhauling ten times as much other
material, which, however valuable it
may be in itself, has no particular use
at the moment of search. Other peo
ple can lay their mental hands on any
particular fact or fancy at a moment's
notice ajad can keep on pulling out
other facts and fancies of the same
general character until they have told
or found all tbey know. There is such
a thing as ari embarrassment of riches
in one' mental- treasury as well as In
She Find Flat.
"Well," said Polly, smiling sweetly
as she poured the tea, "I saw a per
fectly lovely flat this morning' '
"Ob. nonsense. Polly," said I; "we're
not going to move this year. I admit
this place isn't any too comfortabte.
and the wall paper in the parlor Is the
limit but if we moved the chances
are wewouJ4n'.t get anything better.
The Citizens' Commercial association
of Freeport, 111., has. in connection
with the school board, brought about
an innovation in Industrial education.
The plan adopted is to permit students
in the high school to work one-half
of the time in factories.
' The boys work In pairs, one boy in
the factory one week and in high
school the next week, the other boy of
the pair alternating that is, the boy in
school this week goes to the factory
on Saturday afternoon and takes the
work In band that the other boy has
been doing all the week so that be
can take it up quickly Monday morn
ing without encroaching too much
upon the time of the foreman. The
boys are paid 10 cents an hour the
first year, 11 cents the second year and
12VS cents the third year, and they are
given full credit for their work in
Good Progress Made In School.
It Is said that boys working In this
way pass their examinations as cred
itably as those spending their full time
In school. The reasons given are that
because of their factory experience
their minds are more receptive and
they comprehend the school work
quickly. Then they have their even
ings to prepare recitations, and as only
the more ambitious boys elect such a
course tbey make good progress.
The plan pleases the boys because
It gives them a chance to work with
tools and to earn something. Most
boys when they arrive at the age of
fourteen years' wish to earn their own
money. This gives them an opportu
nity to do so and to remain in school
at the same time. It pleases the moth
ers because, while they appreciate the
necessity of the boys going to work,
they feel that U is a rather tender age
to tie them down to hard work every
It pleases the fathers because they
feel that the boys ought to be engaged
In some productive employment, while
still they desire them better prepared
Intellectually. It pleases the manu
facturers because It provides boys
who have brains and ambition beyond
the average, for only the more ener
getic boys will choose a course of this
It pleases the school board because
It keeps boys in school for the four
year period, something that is very
difficult to do. It pleases the laboi
organizations by helping the boys who
need help most.
It is beneficial to the boys in another
way. If n boy don't go to work when
he Is about fourteen years old he be
comes too proud or too lazy to work.
It Is a well known fact that the most
Important business men were brought
up to work when tbey were young:
tint a Inrge proportion of tramps and
irresponsible are recruited from vil
lages where boys have no chores to
attend to before school and nothing
to do after school.
Interest In the Home Hearth.
Still another object is to bring a
closer relation between the high school
and the manufacturing Interests of
Freeport for the purpose of Interesting
the boys In their home city Instead of
pointing them away to some other city
6a soon as tbey leave school. The
plan will help to solve the apprentice
difficulties, while directing the minds
of . the brightest boys along mechan
ical lines, something after the plan of
the German educational system.
The general plan is for the boys to
tart work in the factory in vacation.
They choose the factory that suits
them best, and the employers try them
out. The boys try the work to learn
whether they like It or not.
Mr. Shearer of the Citizens' Com
mercial association, who was princi
pally instrumental In Introducing the
"The Freeport plan, means a radical
change in educational matters, one
that Is about as far away from the
old time classical system as it Is pos
sible to get Specializing in hfgh
school to such an extent is an inno
vation which points to radical changes
in our educational methods, leaning
