DOING THE HARD THINGS.
Forbes Magazine suggests. "Dif
ficulties make men. Eae makes mol
lycoddles. It is harder to climb than
to stroll along the level road or daw
dle down hill. Difficulties are step
ping stones leading to the top. There
fore, do not dodge them, do not run
away from them.
This is intended for advice for the
clerk or the young man starting in
business. We do not see but that it
applies with equal force to the young

5 THE BAISIES.
And now the babies of the United
States are to have their turn at being
Hoovcrized. Announcement has been
made of a popular meeting of fathers
and mothers at Washington, D. C,
when Herbert Hoover will prcFent his
plan for the improvement of child lift
on this sitlo of the Atlantic.
The meeting will be held, wo are
told, under the auspices of the Ameri
can Child Hygiene Association, of
which Mr. Hoover is president. It
may be that the Ilelgian children, Ar
menian children and l.olsheviki chil
dren will feel a tiny bit jealous over
the announcement of Mr. Hoovers
part in the Washington meeting. We
all know how it is when a new baby
appears in a family.
But the foreign children overseas,
whore little empty stomachs have
been filled under Mr. Hoover's direc
tion, are doubtless too grateful to
harbor any real vindictive emotions
over his efforts to improve nil babies.
It was only eight years ago that Mr.
Hoover began directing the American
relief work among war-torn lands
overseas antl paved hundreds of thou
sands of lives.
Inasmuch as the Washington meet
ing is to be made up of fathers anil
mothers of the babies to be saved
and improved, we are wishing it the
utmost success. As long ns the fath
ers and mothers of the nation are in
terested in improving the children of
the country wo are not viewing the
situation with alarm.
AN INDIAN VIEW OF JAZZ.
Yellow Calf, an old Arapahoe In
dian, visited Chicago, where he saw
scantily clad girls dancing fnendzied
ly to jazz music in fashionable cafes,
and went home asking, "Why do they
call the Indians wild?"
In his quoMinn is summed up the
whole of the things called jazz. They
are a reversion to savagery, a leac
tion from the rcitrnints of civiliza
tion the same as war, crimes, bad
temper and hootch.
A CRYING NEED
If there is one thing Durant needs
above another it is a municipal audi
torium witli capacity to hold thous
ands. Wo have no place to hold any
large gatherings. Such an institution
could be used to hold big sales, coun
ty fairs, county conventions, state
conventions, union revivals, chautau-
quas, public sales and many other
things that need not be mentioned
now. The way to get such n building
is to get it.
Anyhow, the Greeks can get a new

We have become accustomed to
"man's ravage" on the land, his hid

track of desolation through the for

ugly railroad yards, and all the fields
that have become his spoil.
But it will be a shock to know that
even the sens are.not exempt and that
their'wreshness is to be polluted nnd
that their wild waves are to be paint
ed with dirty greese.

"Ideals are the world's masters."
A true ideal is never impossible. To
ward the realization of high ideals
society must always be tending, if it
would make leal progress. It is of
the utmost Importance that in our
country we should keep the ideals of
American democracy before ourselves
and impress them upon our children,
asserts the Salt Luke City News.
And the Utah paper is right.
Liberty, equality, happiness and a
government that shall always be "of
the people, by the people and for the
people" 'are some of the American
ideals which we cannot afford to lose
In proportion ns every individual
understands and receives the full
benefit of those ideals to the extent
that he is capable of enjoying them,
the nation ns a whole will remain
free, happy nnd democratic.
To educate each individual citizen
In the republic, to give him high
moral standards and to make it pos
sible for him to develop his talents
to the highest degree, is the only way
to make America the ideal nation
which .she should become.

THE IDLE RICH.
The vani-hing country store exists
in principle in some of the wealthy
clubs in the cities, according to a
Now York correspondent, where
members solemnly argue world af
fairs over noonday luncheons. And
some of these clubs carry the country
store idea so far that they play
checkers and pitch rubber hoseshncs.
The furniture is so expensive that
they cannot whittle it as their grand
fathers whittled the cracker barrel.
Maybe this inability to let off steam
by whittling explains the radicalism
ot some of the members.
8 RUDE RURAL RHYMES tX
0 brothers, when I start to eat I
want no flies upon my meat, but when
I hear the critters humming and see
some forty 'leven coming. I'm glad I
live where folks have plumbing. A
fly is never clean and neat; he may
have garbage on his feet. In country
homes e'en in this now age ho often
carries genus nnd sewage. O let us
rise and give our thanks to him who
first made septic tanks. How dear to
my heart is a cool drink of water,
poured by some farmer's charming
daughter. While gazing on that glo.v
ing cheek, of germs how can I think
or speak? (But if I drink, can I avoid
the lurking danger of typhoid?) I
fear that I must delay the draught
that I may look before and aft, sur
vey the landscape near nnd far and
see where certain buildings are; then,
noting hill and plain, determine
where thoe buildings drain. And
even if a glance should show the well
above, a'l eb o below, some excavating
should bo done to to how straie'it
the strata run. Pe-hnpi they did.
perhaps they bend per'iapt in tin'
old well they end. And so, vit
