The "peacj at any price" policy is not reflected at a certain Chicago tchbol, where a militancy that would win the heart of Colonel Rooaevelt is the order of the day.

After a Canadian named Morgan had been appointed to a government place it iti discovered that the po rtion technically had to be 'occupied by a lawyer, which Ur. Morgan was not. The benchcrt of the law soci sty, hotfevcr, undertook to obviate the technicality, and appointed one }f their number to examine Morgan. "Tell us, Mr. Morgan," said the ex s miner, "what do you know abont the law, anyway P" "To tell the truth," was the modest response of ijorgan, "I don't know a tingle thing." ; Whereupon ^he examiner intimated that the . question waa at an end. He turned in his affidavit, wherein It was stated : "I have exam ined Mr. Morgan as to bis knowl edge of tip law, and to the best of my knowledge tnd belief he has an iwerea ?ii the questions with entire correctness" ITS CHAPLAIN I* EDITOR. Here's soiAething with which the newspaper men mky soothe their louls: In the state penitentiary are about 8 78 prisoners. The institu tion publishes a little weekly paper called the Penitentiary Bulletin. In most ststea the prison paper is edit ed by the prisoners, but in tb? Kan tea institution this is impossible be cause there is not an editor in the entire lilt Consequently the chap lain Vi compelled to add the dntiee of editor to other. tasks.

The announcement 1* made by a British scientist that he has discov ered how the ancient Egyptians in cubated chickens to the number of 18,000,000 a year. He ha* found in cubator* which be declares were used in Egypt 6,000 years ago. Tbe#ecret baa been well guarded, but it is laid bare at last. They had no oil stores or gas or electric heat ed incubators, but they had ovens 'which worked much better, even though they required more constant tending. Bach oven was calculated to hold 7,000 eggs, and the fuel by which it was heated consisted of chopped straw end dung, but for the last ten days of tbe hatching the en ergy was supplied altogether by the chickens themselves. It is the commonest error of thoee operating our modern incubators to use too much heat, especially toward tite.ead of the period, and now we may letfa' from the old Egyptians '.ow not to do things aa well as how to do them. The use of the straw ?fid other light fuel shows that the Egyptians were most careful to avoid too intense hea at any stage. We thought that we were the first to use Incubators, but we are fifty centuries behind the times. ? ?

If only the sto^t- prin ciple that snocessful farming ia not a haphazard pastime, but a business and ? science requiring both patieaco and ingenuity, could be hammered home a tremendous advance would be made.

It might also be an excellent j>lan to teach eastern school children a few truth* vonceming our great west, and our western school children a few truths about the east ? not the wild and wolly west nor the coleaul east, but the west and eat of today. IN HOUSE-MOTHER'S HANDS. Of course it >?oes without saying that the heaviest artillery of our fu ture warfare against disease will be directed toward its prevention rather than its cure. The beat and only radical cure of disease consists in preventing it* spread and wiping out Ute conditions which alone render its uistence possible ? poor food, dirtj water, had drainage, dark and ill ventilated house*. v ? Mora and mere of our energy and brain power will be devoted to the cheerful, positive task of keeping oui bodies so strong and wholesome and vigorous that the}' can defy disease, instead of patching them up aftei they are sick. ? Food, rest, "unshino, exercise, bath ing, massage ? theeo are the sheet anchors of our new materia tucdica. ? Dr. Woods Ifutehinsan.
