Easy to take pessimistic view of vorld--material considerations only seem binding. Would seem that if world is Christian, it would make greater progress. Conversation reported by Dr. Rich- ard Swain: A friend said to him: "What is there, I should like to know, in Chris- tianity? Here we've had the Chris- tian religion for more than 1900 years --and still there are frightful wars, anti" selfishness on every hand. Oh, there's nothing in it." "No," Dr. Swain answered, "we have had Christianity about 33 years; that is, a few people have had it." When asked what he :meant by such a statement, he went on to tell his friend that the earth was inhabited only by children; that the average age of all living people was about 33 years; and that they would scarcely get beyond the spanking stage until their places would be taken by anoth- er set of babies; and that these new babies would scratch and bite, and be tempted to lie ad steal just as all the babies before them had done; and that these in turn would give way to an- other set of babies. All the knowledge and character on earth will, in a few days, be transferred to babies yet un- born or it wouM entirely disappear from the earth. When we remember that most peo- ple only learn by actual experience, no smallest child is ever willing to take the world old knowledge that a stove is hot on theory, he always has to try it out, when We remember this we see what a slow process the leaven- ing of the world with Christianity must be. Then we can see what phe- nomenal strides humanity has already made. Then we can look up with true thankfulness to Almighty God for an of beauty and unselfishness and sacri- fice there now is in the hearts of men Altho several persons have nearlx been killed and a number of automo biles have been smashed up, on ac- count of the very dangerous condi- tion of King of Trails at the crossing of the Minnesota Rivet'near Odessa. Nothing whatever has been done to protect the lives and property of trav- elers on this road. No danger signal l has been erected on either side of the bridge. Surely, at least this much: should be done. There is a very narrow roadway approaching the bridge from the north and on this narrow grade is a very abrupt turn onto the bridKe, is also' to narrow for two cars to pass. "Is Frazer's wife fond of an argu- ment ?" "I should just think so--why she won't even eat anything that agrees with her." .... , ,, . , PRECAUTION THE wATCHWORD Numerous drownings are almost daily being reported from various sec- tions of the coluntry as the stream and lakes become attractive to the youthful skater. A very sad case is reported in this issue from Monte- video. Whydo not people profit by these sad experiences and keep off the ice. until it is perfectly safe. Pre- cautions should be taken at all tSmes even after the ice is generally very thick, as there are currents near outlets or inlets and air holes, that are always dangerous. It is a good plan when skating to have a good stout pole in hand, and if there is a party to have short planks, board or poles nearby that may be used in an in- stant to rescue one who happens to drop thru the ice. Human chains may be readily folzned by lying flat on the ice. Very-thin ice will hold a per- son's weight when sprawled out, and in this manner with each person hold of the other fellows foot a plank, board or a long willow can thus be handed the unfortunate one and those near shore can then with the assistance of every pel.-son making up the chain pull him to safety. FORD'S RAILROAOD METHODS. Ford efficiency means happier em- ployes on the Ford railroad. J.P. Stevens was a crossing watchman at Detroit when Tenry Ford bought the road. He drew $58 a month and work- ed every day. Now he makes $156 a month and has every Sunday off. Since Ford showed Stevens how he could do it, he not only tends the crossings, but sweeps the walks, does carpenter jobs, polices the track and otherwise makes himself useful. "Not a minute is wasted any more," says Stevens. [] And how he likes it.--Capper's Week- t ly. Ford is showing up the railroads by cutting rates and increasing the pay of railroad employees. Henry should be able to show up tim shoe manufacturers if he took the notion to start a shoe factory. By getting hides for a few cents over the freight charges, and operating a tan- nery himself, we believe that great consternation would prevail among , that class of un-Americans, and I wouldn't it be great to get a classy pair of "kicks" again for the price of 25 bushel of oats. MICKIE SAYS Quite a large number of young men who were loudly singing a few months ago, "How 'Ya Gonna Keep 'Eva, Down on the Falzn?" can be beard now in the mournful chant, "How We Gonna Stay in Town and Eat?"

Easy to take pessimistic view of vorld--material considerations only seem binding. Would seem that if world is Christian, it would make greater progress. Conversation reported by Dr. Rich- ard Swain: A friend said to him: "What is there, I should like to know, in Chris- tianity? Here we've had the Chris- tian religion for more than 1900 years --and still there are frightful wars, anti" selfishness on every hand. Oh, there's nothing in it." "No," Dr. Swain answered, "we have had Christianity about 33 years; that is, a few people have had it." When asked what he :meant by such a statement, he went on to tell his friend that the earth was inhabited only by children; that the average age of all living people was about 33 years; and that they would scarcely get beyond the spanking stage until their places would be taken by anoth- er set of babies; and that these new babies would scratch and bite, and be tempted to lie ad steal just as all the babies before them had done; and that these in turn would give way to an- other set of babies. All the knowledge and character on earth will, in a few days, be transferred to babies yet un- born or it wouM entirely disappear from the earth. When we remember that most peo- ple only learn by actual experience, no smallest child is ever willing to take the world old knowledge that a stove is hot on theory, he always has to try it out, when We remember this we see what a slow process the leaven- ing of the world with Christianity must be. Then we can see what phe- nomenal strides humanity has already made. Then we can look up with true thankfulness to Almighty God for an of beauty and unselfishness and sacri- fice there now is in the hearts of men Altho several persons have nearlx been killed and a number of automo biles have been smashed up, on ac- count of the very dangerous condi- tion of King of Trails at the crossing of the Minnesota Rivet'near Odessa. Nothing whatever has been done to protect the lives and property of trav- elers on this road. No danger signal l has been erected on either side of the bridge. Surely, at least this much: should be done. There is a very narrow roadway approaching the bridge from the north and on this narrow grade is a very abrupt turn onto the bridKe, is also' to narrow for two cars to pass.

"I should just think so--why she won't even eat anything that agrees with her." .... , ,, . , PRECAUTION THE wATCHWORD Numerous drownings are almost daily being reported from various sec- tions of the coluntry as the stream and lakes become attractive to the youthful skater. A very sad case is reported in this issue from Monte- video. Whydo not people profit by these sad experiences and keep off the ice. until it is perfectly safe. Pre- cautions should be taken at all tSmes even after the ice is generally very thick, as there are currents near outlets or inlets and air holes, that are always dangerous. It is a good plan when skating to have a good stout pole in hand, and if there is a party to have short planks, board or poles nearby that may be used in an in- stant to rescue one who happens to drop thru the ice. Human chains may be readily folzned by lying flat on the ice. Very-thin ice will hold a per- son's weight when sprawled out, and in this manner with each person hold of the other fellows foot a plank, board or a long willow can thus be handed the unfortunate one and those near shore can then with the assistance of every pel.-son making up the chain pull him to safety. FORD'S RAILROAOD METHODS. Ford efficiency means happier em- ployes on the Ford railroad. J.P. Stevens was a crossing watchman at Detroit when Tenry Ford bought the road. He drew $58 a month and work- ed every day. Now he makes $156 a month and has every Sunday off. Since Ford showed Stevens how he could do it, he not only tends the crossings, but sweeps the walks, does carpenter jobs, polices the track and otherwise makes himself useful. "Not a minute is wasted any more," says Stevens. [] And how he likes it.--Capper's Week- t ly. Ford is showing up the railroads by cutting rates and increasing the pay of railroad employees. Henry should be able to show up tim shoe manufacturers if he took the notion to start a shoe factory. By getting hides for a few cents over the freight charges, and operating a tan- nery himself, we believe that great consternation would prevail among , that class of un-Americans, and I wouldn't it be great to get a classy pair of "kicks" again for the price of 25 bushel of oats. MICKIE SAYS Quite a large number of young men who were loudly singing a few months ago, "How 'Ya Gonna Keep 'Eva, Down on the Falzn?" can be beard now in the mournful chant, "How We Gonna Stay in Town and Eat?" ' 'Do you think a man profits by his mistakes ?" "Not if he marries the wrong wo- man he doesn't." @ i Belva Kaercher TEACHER OF PIANO AND HARMONY Ortonville, Minn.
