"It is very amusing sometimes
to see the airs that high society
gives itself. The world could dis
pense with high r society and never
miss it. High society is for those
who have stopped working and
no longer have anything impor
ktant. to do."—President Wood-
? * And that i 3 why high society
play cards and dance so much—
"No longer have anything im
portant to do." Time- hangs,
heavily on their hands.
No great enterprise demands
their thought and money. High
Society! If there is anything in
our life of today more sickening
than mod»rn society;, it is
to see on? who is as poor as JobV
Vtarkey trying to ape high society

"What kind of teacher is daily
influencing my child?" This
question is one of great moment,
and should be debated by every
pat ent in the land. In a large
measure, the teacher who spends
five or more hours with a child,
influences its life and thought, it
may be said, more than the moth
er. So often in arguing with a
boy or girl, one hears these
words: "Anyhow, my teacher
said so." Tnore is a certain con
fidence possessed by the child in
the teacher, that nothing can
shake. All students after care
lui thought, have decided that
the daily intercourse with the
teacher, moulds the character of
the pupu for a good or a useless

THE LAW OPENS THE DOOB
An Act Impowering Towns 4
Counties to Provide or Their
"Towns and counties are
ready taking advantage of the
new law and are paying the way
of their tubercular patients at
the State Sanitorium according
to the provisions of the law."
said the superintendent of that
institution recently. "lt"«
wise measure," said h»-, "be
cause through it, the poor widow,
the orphan cJiildTand those that
are otherwise not able t> pay
the dollar a day may be given
treatment anil restored a? use
fid citizens that otherwise would
have had no chance." **«•
The law referred to was one *
passed by the recent General
Assembly and one that empowers
cities, towns and counties to pro
vide for the treatment of their
indigent tubercular sick at the
State Sanitorium, the cost of the
treatment to be not more than a
dollar per day. This law makes
possible the means,., whereby
towns and counties may care for
their tubercular sick- and give
them a chance at recovery "under
the best possible circumstances
the State can afford.'
This act of the legislature that
•R9:es the poor 1 a chance along
I with the rich or those ajgle to pay
[opens the doors of the State
ttoridw to S field of much
| wider usefulness. No longer are
j the doors barred and now the re-
I sponsionlity rests with the city,
town or county in which there is
a tubercular patient.
