1 EMPEROR HAD TO MAKE WAY WOULD ABOLISH HOME WORK j ' mark thettreets. i 3rd. 1379. L Salisbury, N. 0, Feb. 21, 1917 "The boy life and girl life of Salisbury is at stake. Do your part, and do it now so that the campaign may .close tonight with ample funds to provide for the nomine- two Years' work. It's up to you," The above falsehood is an ex tract from a half-page advertise ment, set in big type and scatter ed abroad slandering Salisbury Royal Hungarian MaH Cart Had Prece dence Even Over Carriage of Ruler of Austria-Hungary. A good story is .being retold about the late emperor of Austria. Arrayed in the ordinary garb of an Alpine hunter dark green fustian jacket and short breeches, gray woolen knit ted stockings turned down below the knees, thick-soled, nailed snooting boots, and a-soft gray felt hat orna- j mented with blackcock feathers and a chamois "beard" Francis Joseph often spent -hours unrecognized in the f orea or on the mountainside. One day, while driving from one shooting-box to another, he met the mail cart, the driver of which was lustily blowing his horn in order to clear the road. "Get out of the way!" shouted he as he came up to the emperor's trap. "Why not get out of the way your self, and let us pass?" rejoined his maiestv. - ... "Because," answered the man, "tne . royal Hungarian mail, cart gives place neither to man nor tne aevu i "You are right," said tne emperor and intimating in the broadest way possible that the churches J ng, and tossed him a cigar, and, oarents of Salisbury have ; cast the boys and girls of the BEST PLACE OF RETIREMENT community out to go it as they may and that without pity, shame or recourse. This is a slander upon the community and an injustice to the good peo ple, the churches and other chris tian influences that have been so effective every where since the christian era. Such stuff ought to be denounced and resented by every good citizen in the city. doubt Salisbury ttas her quartc of the bad element, but the above statement is false, misleading and slanderous. One'e Own Soul Superior to All Other Situations to Man of Well Ordered Mind. Danish West Indies Bill WMi By Tha House Washington, Feb. 19. Without a roll call the house tonisrh passed the bill to coutinuetem porarily the present government in the Danish West Indies and appropriate $23,000,000 to pa? Denmark for the islands.

PORTLAND CEMENT. Jrortland cement manufacture is now established in South Wales on a large scale. In the extensive area jfrom Penarth where the new fac tories have been constructed, west ward, beyond Aberthaw, cement imaking materials of such nature and .quality jftre found that the product from the district has already estab lished for itself a reputation to be ienvied. The position of Great Brit iahf it the markets for Portland ce ment is illustrated by the' figures for the year 1913, when the largest pro ducing countries were Great Britain with 3,000,000 tons, Germany with te.000,000 tons, and the United jStafes of America with nearly 15, uo,ouu tons.

"In the,magazines sent to the hos- ipital I found come with a lot of so ciety beauty cuts." "Took 'em to the right place to lhave the' cuts dressed." Men seek out retreats for them selves, cottages in the country, lone Iv seashores and mountains. Thou, too, art disposed to hanker greatly after such things ; and yet all this is the very commonest stupidity; for it is in thy power, whenever tnou wilt, to retire into thyself; and nowhere is there any place whereto a man may retire quieter and more free from politic than his own soul; above all. if he have within nun thoughts such as he need only regard attentively to be at perfect ease; ana that ease is nothing else than a well ordered mind. Constantly then use this retreat, and renew thyself there in; and be thy principles brief and elementary, which as soon as ever thou recur to them, will suflice to wash thy soul entirely .clean, and send thee back without vexation to whatsoe'er awaiteth thee. Marcus Aurelius. AND COST OF LIVING SO HIGH. Lysander, a New York state farm hand, was telling his troubles to a neighbor, and among other things said that the wife of the farmer who employed him was "too darned close for any use." "This very morning, said he, "she said to me: Lysander, do you know how many pancakes you have etthis mornm'? I 6aid, Uo, inaHinvI ain't had no occasion to count em.' Well,' she says, that last one was the twenty-sixth.' And it made me so dod- gasted mad I jest got up from the table and went to work without my breakfast." Prominent Educator Likely to Have Solid Support for Drastic Change He Has Advocated. Many parents will feel that there is sound common sense in the sugges tions made by Professor Hall-Quest of the University of Virginia in his addresses before Rochester teachers in regard to arranging school sched ules so that home work would be abolished and the amount of writing done by school children greatly re duced. Children in the upper grades in grammar schools have a great deal of writing to do and a consideraDie amount of home work besides. As the majority of children graduate from the grammar schools nowadays at twelve to fourteen years of age, study in the upper grades imposes a tremendous strain of the eyes and general health a period of life when it is likely to have permanent injuri ous effects. Professor Hall-Quest put his finger on the weak spot in the present school system when be said that children would learn vastly more if they were taught more how to study and use their minds instead of spending so much time writing. Much of the writing done is a waste of time because it makes no unpres sion whatever on the mind of the child. But the incompetent or lazy teacher finds it. an invaluable aid be cause discipline is more easily pre served when children have their hands occupied. Rochester Demo crat. .
