O. A. LI:3K, Publisher. i EAST JOUDAN. - - Mir!!Iia SELF-DENIALS IN EDUCATION. Speaking of tho driveling life youth must undergo these days and tho many Influences that war with clean life, clean thoughts and fine aspirations, Cornelia A, P. Conner, In "A Letter to the Rising Generation," In the Atlantic, says: "I don't ap prove." your fathers and mothers say anxiously, "but I hate to keep Tom and Mary at home when all the other children are allowed to go." These parents are conscientious and ener getic In looking after Tom's teeth and eyes, and Mary's hair, tonsils and na sal passage, but seem utterly uncon scious that mental rickets and curva ture of tho soul are far more deform ing than crooked teeth and adenoids. If these children were protected from a vicious environment and educated into habits of a pure, clean, sensible life, there would need be much less anxiety concerning crooked teeth and nasal passages, says the Ohio State Journal. What education needs to make itself worth while is a conflict with the vulgarizing influences out side tho home and tho schoolroom. Life has become a hard problem for the children. They are surrounded by a cloud of pleasures and faccinatlons that lead them away from virtue, cul ture and serious thought It may not make them vicious and criminal, but It does tend to make them stupid, in ane and frivolous. Thl3 is certainly evident to every observing parent and schoolkeeper. The terrible Infantile paralysis con tinues to be a puzzle to tho medical fraternity. It is a malady that appeared years ago, but not until lately has It assumed epidemic proportions. Tho disease Is an affection of the spinal cord, though it involves the heart, liv er, kidneys and lymphoid tissues. Ef forts have been made to discover tho germ of the disease, but it seems to be so small as to escape detection, eays tho Ohio State Journal. It is possible, that some time this winter the bacillus will turn up, since great investigations are going on In the lab oratories. Tho devastations of tho malady seem to have decreased dur ing the cold weather, but there aro apprehensions that early in the spring the fatalities will reappear. It is hop ed by then the germ will be found out and an antitoxin devised for Its demolition. While this disease is prone to attack children, adults, too, are subject to it. It is said about 20 per cent, of the cases die. Relief from the exactions of fash ion is aimed at through a petition which has been presented to the North Carolina senate, asking for leg islation that willestablish permanent and economical styles of clothing, In order that farmers and others with large families shall bo exempt from the hardship of trying to keep up with prevailing modes. No doubt the object sought Is a worthy one. But who is to be the "arbiter elegantiar um," such as tho ancient Romans had, to set the pace in "what to wear?" And what assurance is there that the wife and children of even the poorest of poor men would be satlsfled with any design on which the arbitration board should decide? Statesmen in North Carolina and elsewhere who attempt to "monkey" with the fashions aro quite likely to find such action a good deal like dallying with dynamite. A six-cylinder optimist Is one who pretends to like all his wife's relatives. The matter of reclamation of waste lands is becoming of as much inter est abroad as in our own country. Germany feels the need of acquiring all the tillable soil possible, and the matter has been up before the German Agricultural Congress at Derlln where Emperor William made an address on the subject. From statistics present ed it was shown that there are hun dreds of square miles of moorland which may be made available for grazing ppurposes, and Ills Imperial Majesty urged effective action along that line.

A former Klondike gold seeker car ties $150,000 In his wooden leg, there by assuring himself oT physical and financial support at the same time. A New York women's society plans to bestow medals on dogs for acts of heroism. Of course, the dogs prefer medals to beefsteaks.

Haired Women By TIIURDE RAYLE BRUCE TJ m X DEALING with the red-headed type of woman I must walk gingerly. In regard to her I should like to make free with a little known but exquisite French proverb. Skipping that, ' however, I will 6ay the red-headed type carries the danger sig nal. Like the ubiquitous and expensive red toxicab, she is not infrequently and I feel that that is putting it well of a queenly disposition. Mostly she has green eyes, of a contra dictory, cold nature. She docs this red hair of hers in an aure ole. There is about her an aroma of the old, glad, mad days of the portcullis and battlemcnted wall, if I may say bo with out appearing personal. She carries herself for the most part you will notice that I am bein very correct very erect, very Tompadourly. Good red hair and great green eyes are worth making a fuss about. If the red-headed type, who generally has long, but unnoticeable eyelashes, is clever enough to put a slight line of artistic black beneath them you may as well consider yourself to bo the usual number of skittles, for down you will go. Xow, let us come nearer to the red-headed typo. Let us approach her and analyze. Let us be chemists and forget wo are men. The red headed typo is not very general. She forms the exception to the rule. Her average is about one per cent. She may be found, however, at dances, where she invariably is clothed in art tints. She has a penchant for lib erty, and she makes a corner in aloofness. She is, if I may say so, like a forty-candle power electric typo under a thick green shade. Warily, warily, my friend, for the red-headed type has a red-hot tem per. Should her dignity be upset by the fraction of an inch she will say those things which are better left unsaid. She docs not quietly take um brage: she gets into the very dickens of a temper. But I must say that Ehe doesn't do this often. She is mostly a queen. She moves, or rather glides, in her small circle, throwing favors to a kneeling crowd of worshipers, bearded and scraped. She takes oil that she can get, and gives nothing. She is one unbroken round of good taste, if you follow me. She talks in periods about Love, always with a big L, mind you, she is not insincere. At, no. She hasn't got it in her to be insincere. She hasn't sufficient depth for that great gift. She is just a silly, red-headed, green-eyed, qucenty, handsome thing on whom you can spend a patrimony and receive no change. Every man she meets comes, according to her, under her sway, within her aura, if I may say so without knowing what it means. She is, as you will see, if -ou aro not hopelessly gone, if you are not befreckled out yi UseS for I bathing More Daylight Hours By WALTER B. LEUTZ two-thirds of the prcsant expense of artificial light, as well as the resultant strain on the eyes caused by excessive use of such light. They could enjoy any number of outdoor amusements and sports daily, instead of. on Saturday half holidays and Sundays, as at present. All "of this would work for better health and would reduce doctors' and druggists' bills. Would eight or ten hours' work under "more daylight" conditions be so much more exhausting than under present conditions? It would leave 14 to 1G hours of rest, as now. Frobably on further consideration ho would place the soft pedal on his "no" and join the ranks of the enthusiasts, regardless of whether W6 are copying our English cousins, who, no doubt, get more health and pleas ure out of life than the vast majority of us more up-to-date Americans. Cowboy Talks of Western Girls By WILLIAM RECHTINWALD hard as the cowboys. They do not have it as easy as the eastern girls. And as to an American girl marrying an Indian, I think she is sen sible. I would rather see her marry him than to see her marry a duke or lord with a title. There are a lot of girls who spend their vacation in the west and on their return to the citic3 they respect a cowboy ns a gentleman and that the western girl jealous, because the cowboys pay more attention tc of common sense, a laughter-making darling. But of all the types extant she is the one to whom you can really make love. You can say anything you like, anything you've read, anything that seems in the cold light of day utterly ridiculous, and yet you cannot be foolish. You can, and must, hurl at her head from your knrciin' position headlines, quotations, but you cannot do more than kiss the Hem of Her robe. To hbr a kiss is a Sacred Thing, only to be received and given when she has Found Love. And when she has found it, what then? Why, she leaves her pose behind her in the ancestral halls, and immediately develops into a good wife and a sound mother. "What will people do with two more day light hours of leisure? asks a writer.

Also it would enable them to save about It has been asserted that in the west the cowboys are looked upon as common workmen and that the western girls do not notice them. That's what they say when they are in the big cities, but if the people could sec them among the cowboys they could sec for themselves whether the west ern girls regard them as common workmen. 1 was a cowboy for 12 years and hav had experience in the western states and I also have been with the 101 ranch as om of the expert bucking horse riders and 1 know the western girls from A to Z.

I LOOKS WELL ON DESK Cretonne Writing Set a Gift Which Will Be Pleasing to Any Girl. For the maid who loves white enameled furniture and dimity cur tains and dresden china toilet articles nothing could be more charming than a cretonne-covered wtitlng set for the boudoir desk. It is especially approp riate in a simple rosebud design for a young girl. First there is tho big blotter, the foundation cut out of heavy cardboard after a leather model and the cre tonno carefully pasted on, with tiny stitches to round tho corners proper ly. A narrow gimp edging may be used if desired, but if you can do the work neatly enough it Is really pret tier without. Next in order is the set of note books, ranging from the big dairy to the little address book, and each neat ly bound. Hero the gilt or green gimp is more in order, but yon may suit your own tastes about that. Calendar (the cards for the perpet ual variety may be bought, with a light, cheap frame, at any stationer's) and picture frames belong together; and after them come tho little boxes for pen points, elastics, etc. These may be merely little Jewelry boxes lined with silk or velvet or, better, gray chamois. There are three articles which must not bo included in this set. These are the ink well and the pen tray, because of the danger of stain ing them, and the candlesticks, be cause of that of fire. But if you wish your set to be complete, you can get these in dresden china, with a little clock to match, in a design closely approximating that of the cretonne. Perhaps it would be better to buy tho china first and match the cretonne from it. All sorts of smaller articles, such as little blotters, penwiper, paper cutter, etc., may be covered with the pretty fabric. Of course, brocaded Filk.may be used instead. If you de sire to make the sec a more expen sive one. And, by the way, give a pleca of tho plain fabric with your present, or get It extra if you are making the set for yourself. For accidents will hap pen, and first aid is a useful thing to have at hand. Bridesmaids All Abloom. Seven bridesmaids at a recent fash ionable wedding walked In single file up the aisle of the church. All wore gowns of cream messallne over rain bow silk. Their short lace veils were caught with half wreaths of flowers. One wore moss rosebuds In her hair and carried a muff of the same blos soms. Next came a girl decked with sweet peas. Violets, yellow and brown nasturtums, clematis, Meter roses and orchids also bloomed In th piquant decoration of 'the bride's at tendants.

Russell Hopkins, a southerner, who lives In the St. Ilegla, is responsible for the Panama cocktail. Ho and Charles Luther Burnham were talk ing over Hopkins' latest concoction, which had been placed in the little book kept by the bartender. "You take half a pony ofndy, half a pony of curacao, jhy gin and French or Haiti jrrnrth, and there you are thereto pur drink before dinner," said Hopkins! "Yes," Interposed Burnham, "It's a cocktail,' all right. One of your friends came In here the other day with more than $300 in his wallet He was initiated Into tho mysteries of the Panama cocktail. He seemed all right when he left, but he was found tho following day In a ferry-house hugging a set of furs he had bought for his wife.

A great many people go on suffering from annoying ailments for a long time before they can get their own consent to give up the Indulgence from which their trouble arises. A gentleman tn Brooklyn describes his experience, as follows: "I became satisfied eome months ago that I owed the palpitation of the heart from which I suffered almost dally, to the use of coffee, (I had been a coffee drinker for 30 years) Vt I found it very hard to give up theLiev rage, "One day I ran across a very sen alble and straightforward presenta tion of the claims of Potum, and was so Impressed thereby that I con cluded to give It a trial. "My experience with. It was. unsat isfactory till I learned how It ought to be prepared by thorough boiling for not less than 15 or 20 minutes. Alter I learned that lesson thore was no trouble. "Postum proved to be a most I' dat able and satisfactory hot beverage, and I have used It ever sinco. "The effoct on my health has been most ealutary. The heart palpitation from which I used to suffer so much, particularly after breakfast has dis appeared and I never have a return of It except when I dine or lunch away from home and drink the old kind of coffee because Postum Is not served. I find that Postum cheers and lofig or&tes while it produces no harmful stimulation." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich. Ten days' trial proves an eya opener to many.
