But when young people have got up to high school age they should have passed beyond that point of view, and begin to realize that they are shaping their own future, and that evading rules and slipping past the tests by crooked ways simply hurts themselves. They should unite to compel their own number to meet the school requirements fairly and honestly. DINNER STORIES Inebriated One, to local professor with reputation for great knowledge Some people think they know everything. After this had been repeated two or thre times the professor replied that he had known people who thought they knew more than they did know, but that he had never met any one who claimed bo know everything. Inebriated One Well, I can tell you something you don't know! My wife is your washerwoman, and I'm wearing one of your shirts! There Is a road in a western state which s?ems unable to form anything like an intimate relationship between itg trams and the advertised schedule. These trains are so proverbially late that there is a mild, celebration every time one reaches its destination on time. tWe th xrord was nassed throueh i on? little town that No. 3 would get in on time and a big crowd gathered at the station Some generous citi-1 en provided quantities of red fire and j set it off along the track. "What's the trouble ?H the conduc-! tor asked when he jumped off the train. "Train's aetuallv in on time.' ex- plained the crowd. "Put out your fires, you idiots," the I conductor snorted. "Don't you know that we're just twenty-four hours late?" "Perfect uproar at the club last night. Bangs started the row and I guess he got more than by? bargained for." "I'm not surprised at that. A rough house, like any other, costs more than the architect's estimate, you know.

A newspaper exchange tells how a man, after a run of very hard luck, had the misfortune to have his house burn to the ground. The neighbors took hold and built him another house, and charged him nothing for material r labor. It hardlv needs to be said that this happened not in any city neighbor- j hood, where people claim to be very progressive, but m a country town. Country people are always doing these friendly, helpful things. In the cities few people bother about the difficulties from which their neighbors suffer. If they do know, they don't seem to think it is up to them to do anything. o STANDING BACK OF LEGISLATORS The American people e!?ct their congressmen and state legislators with a grand whoop. Then they are confident that these far sighted statesmen are at once going to put the government on a new foundation of efficiency. Then later when it appears that the men chosen are handicapped byj ordinary limitations and the great difficulties they confront, the people j turn around and curse them as do no- j things. ' The great majority of law makers j are honest men. They are subjected ' to selfish influence, but they never hear much from the great mass of the people who merely desire community progress. It would help legislators, if they heard more from thinking people at home. Then they would have evidence to show to the favor seekers and pull workers, that public sentiment demands business government. Write to your Congressman and your legislator and toll him what you think about things. 53 - SCHOOL HONOR The boy who cheats in pasing a school or col'epe examination may think he has done a smart thing, and has gotten the best of the teachers. But actually he has injured only him self. He has thrown away the benefits that come from study, and by the process of cheating at the tests, has managed to escape detection in his act of self injury. He has no cause for jubilation. A leading college recently expelled a number of fellows who cheated, and suspended ethers who did not cheat themselves but knew the fraud was going cn This action was taken at the request of the school government, Such a policy represents much vance in student sentiment. Formerly it was not good form for a pupil to inform on others who were breaking rules. A child who did that used to be called a "tatletale. But j stud?nts for their own self protection and for maintainance of good stand - ards of work, are organizing in many schools to outlaw such cheating. When i they require their own number to give ' information regarding dishonorable practices the indolent and tricky will . . either have to quit or else go to work. The spirit of lower schools ts frequently one of combination against j i j : cher had gone last May in the hopes of benefiting his health. J Mr. Fletcher suffered a nervous breakdown last summer while he was connected with the Marion Foundry & Machine Works at Marion, he being a traveling salesman for that . firm. j The family was for many years residents of Fairmount, he having owned a jewelry store and was also town clerk and treasurer, They were members of the Metho- dist church, he being superintendent ' the Sunday school at one time, Besides the wife, he leaves a dau?h- ter Mrs- Earl Harper, of Brazil, Ind., 8on Ra,Ph of Oklahom,a three grandchildren, two sisters, and a host fiends. neiw irom fairmount, who were w. .t Mrs- George Shields, Mrs. Burl Jay, M Bessie Nolder, and Mr. and Mrs. Albert Morris. HERB FARMS TO BE COMMON Comparatively New Branch of Mortl-culture It Becoming Popular In England. Without doubt herb culture Is the coming science. One of the most arresting farts tn the domain of medicines today is the progress made In pharmacy, London Ttt-HIts states. Herbs, from linvtng been used ad lib. In medieval times, felt Into disrepute, and tn modem times herbal remedies, apart from drugs which could be numbered on the fingers of one hand, were tabooed, save by the enlightened few. Herb farming t a new branch of ' horticulture, writes A. It. Ilorwood, j p t s t ' t, Hotm;ip.lhte World. u tl? nn tnrtlng and Intellectual pursuit specially suited for women. Before the war there were numerous herb farms run on commercial lines by firms of manufacturing chemists. But then1 were no schools for the training of amateurs. 8lnce the war, however, a school and herb farm has been started at Cbatfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire, by Mrs. M. tJrieve, F. It. II. S. One of the main objects of herb farming Is to cultivate plants of medicinal value. Besides the drug plants In general use, such as belladonna, henbane, fox-glove, aconite, datura and so on, a vast number of herbs whose real value Is known are used In medicine. Including such common plants as dandelion, couch grass, red ppny. colehtcum. barberry, chamomile, dill, fennel, blessed thistle, valerian and male fern. TO PROTECT SACRED SNUFF Reason Given for the High Btnch Behind Which Supremo Court Judge Hav Their Seat. The Federal Supreme court Is celebrating Its centenary of "the high bench." Orlglnaljy the Justices sat behind a long bench on the floor of the court on a level with the lawyers who tried their cases before them. This straight desk had set Into it a snuff box opposite each Justice's seat. Henry Clay was arguing a case before the court. During a pause in his argument one of the Justices reached forward, took a pinch of snuff and settled hack to weigh the more carefully the reasoning presented. In his next pause Mr. Clay reached over and with a Thank you" took a pinch himself. The court was Indignant. That afternoon they met to decide what could be done to preclude the possibility of a second breach of the "etiquette of the court" and decided to have a bench made of such height that no mere practitioner could reach their pet suuff. Since then they have sat behind the high bench that Is In use today. New Tork Tribune. t : f r stummik was the Hot water Bottle. Watched Town Grow From Very Statt In the little station at Summitville, on the I. U. T, line is a station agent who is courteous and obliging, in fact, , a gentleman of the old school. His name is Moore and the wayfarer de- J siring information at that office will always be treated with the utmost courtesy and consideration. Mr. Mbore is one of the oldest inhabitants of Summitville. In point of fact there is just one other inhabitant, a lady, who saw the town grow from it beginning. Mr. Moore was raised on a farm a mile and a half north of where Summitville now stands. He and his father kent the nostoflW he- the civil war, during the civil war and the war was over. The mail came br staS? roach and the Worses were changed at his father's barn- Moore saw hi brothers en- list and march w and although he pleaded to join them, his father was ooourate ana Kept mis youngest son with him. But patriotism found an (outlet when the boy, on the 21st day ot loJ. waiKeu lo fairmount and joined the home guards. On that day the ground was covered with two inches of snow which was unusual. A small general country store was started at the place afterward called Summitville. Mr. Moore and his father were induced to put the post-office in this store, which they afterward purchased. Mr. Moore remem- bers the first railroad through Fair- mount, ne ana nis iamer were in Fairmount when the first train pulled Into the station. John Winslow was also present and when the train whistled for Fairmount Mr. Moore's father turned to Mr. Winslow and said "that said F-ad-r-m-o-u-n-t,' and when the bell commenced ringing he said that says "John Winslow, John Winslow, John Winslow." All of these things the reporter learned while waiting between cars in the little station at Summitville. Miss Frances Craig of Jonesboro, spent the week-end with Phyllis Cooper. Mrs. Ellen Hipes has returned home after a three weeks visit with her sons. jSomie and Lin, of near Log-ansport. Miss Josephine Hipes of Royal Center, has returned to this city where she will take up her Junior work in Fairmount academy. Miss Effie Mcllalton of Detroit, Mich., was the guest of her grandfather, Eri Rich and other relatives, last week and from here went to Peru, where she will be employed. Mrs. Will Brown, Mrs. Arthur Som-mers and Mrs. Ralph Parker will entertain the Sunday school class of the M. E. church taught by Mrs. Ella Patterson Tuesday night at the home of Mrs. Will Brown. Redemption Rock is in the town of Princeton, Mass., near Mt. Wachusett. Ik derives its name from a treaty , , . ... made on its surface with a tribe of Indians May 2, 1676, for the ransom of Mrs. Mary Ronald son, of Lancaster, a captive of the Indians. The treaty was made on behalf of the whites by John Hoar, of Concord. The rock has a large flat surface, on which about twenty-five persons can stand. Boston Globe.
