LEE The Bible as aa Educator
New York Tribune.
In his address to the British Ed
ucational Conference Viscount Bryce
deplored the increasing unfamiliari
ty of school children with the Bible..
Undoubtedly in this age of relig
ious relaxation and education in
non-sectarian schools and colleges
boys and giSrls are grounded in the
Bible to only a very moderate ex
tent. The old contract with it in
the family circle is gone, and the
Sunday School is about the only
agency left through which the
younger generation gets its knowl
edge of the Bible, either as doctrine
or as1 literature.
It is not extravagant to say that
the loss of such knowledge would re
a grent misfortune, looking at it
only from the educational point of
view. The English language as em
ployed in the King James version
riVe to a dignity and harmony in
prose and to an exquisite balance
between Vigor and beauty which it
I attains nowhere else. To cut off
a pupil in the formative years from
access to that masterpiece of ex
pression is to deprive him of an al
most indispensable standard by
which to measure the power and
purity of the English language.
Happy is the old fashioned boy or
girl who went unwillingly to family
worship or struggled halfheartedly
with the Prayer Book or the "West
minster Catechism. In educational
value alone the brand, thus cast in
travel of spirit upon the waters has
returned to feed him or her abund
antly in later years'.

Where Do the Pins Go?
The output of pins is large, and
if the outgo were not also large the
country soon would be overstocked
with these essential articles of daily
Many persons wonder what be
comes of the pins and a French
scientist has deemed the question of
sufficient moment to make a pains
taking investigation. The pins, he
says, go back to the dust of mother
earth. His experiments have shown
that an ordinary pin left exposed to
the elements will disappear in eigh
teen months. A common hairpin wll
dissolve into dust in 154 days. A
tteel pen will vanish into dust in
eighteen months but a polished steel
needle will stand the ravages of
time for a period of two and a half
It is a matter of common knowl
edge that pind and similar articles
which become Imbedded in tbe earth
will gradually melt away and final
ly become a part of the soil. No
body except a scientist, however,
would undertake to keep time on
the process of dissolution and fig
ure out the exact life of a pin whic$
bad been lost in the mud or swal
lowed in dust .
Pins are useful,, but they are
cheap, and no one gives much
thought to their conservation. Bil
lions of pins are lost in this country
evfery year and are resolved into
dust, but tf the people took a sud
den notion to be economical in
this respect half the pin factories
would have to go out of business,
and members of the Pimuakers'
Union would be out of a Job. Even
in the waste of pins, therefore.there
is stimulus to Industry. 1 he school
boy's compoelion had it that "pins
have saved thousands of lives by
people not swallowing them." In
4her and more substancial ways
are "life-savers," which the world,
though it oft-times deepitefully U6es
them, canot get along without.

LOOK for this triangle before
you buy any heater.
It is the trademark of the latest
model of the Perfection Smoke
leas Oil Heater.
It is the sign of the greatest im
provements everrnade in ofl heat
The Perfection Heater, as now made,
gives more heat, holds more ofl, is
better made and works better than
any other heater on the market
It has a wide, shallow oil font, which
allows the oil to pass readily up the
wick and insures reliable, unchanging
flame and heat, whether the font is full
or nearly empty.
The Perfection is smokeless, because
the patent locking flame -spreader
prevents the wick being turned tip
blgh enough to smoke. It is easy to
re-wick, because the carrier and wick
are combined just turn out the old
and slip in the new.
Indicator tells how much oil is in the
font. Filler plug is pushed in like a

Attractive latticed window frame.
