OLD FRIENDS. ar.U "Tom the Bootblack" and the rest of Horatin's poor Hut Virvnocf boys without whom no public library was complete? Inquiry at most public libraries will show that these boyhood friends of men who now are past thirty have been banished from the shelves and their places taken by young heros who in the last quarter wir football games when they are all but lost; or who do woi.Mers with wireless machines; or who invent new-fangled airplanes. Two generations of men treasure as cherished memories the loi.-g vacation i days of boyhood passed m the mspir- ; ing company of Alger's tattered ' heros wh0 always made good. There ; were "Ragged Dick" who in the last ' chapter married the banker's daugh ter and lived in a brownstone mansion on Fifth-ave; and "Joe, the Peddler". who became the junior partner in the s 1 ! i $2.00some j i i E. 0.

The desision of the Leagiue of Na- tions Council on the di?puted boundary line in Selesia is n0 doubt a fair one. it draws the line squarely through the industrial region, leaving or! one side j the districts that voted strongly for German allegiance, and on the other Itkco f Viatv n-3i- cfronfflv Polish in their svmpathies. And it divides the doubtful districts as evenly as may be betweerf the two claimants. The trouble is Jthat neither side wants a "fair" decision. The Germans want all of upper Silesia, and so do the Poles. Each party regards any concession to the other as reprehensible. And they are right in so far as the disputed territory is economically a unit and can only be divided at the coSt Gf mUch of its property, and prob. ably at the cost of its peace. The irr-itaHnn in Rrlin i Pvtrpme for a Germany will find the payment of re- parations harder thar ever if it is deprived of the resources of upper Silesia. When the Washington conference iv.. fu r;R discusse it will include representatives of Holland, Belgium, and Portugal, since those countries have possessiors or commercial interests in that part of the world that may be affected by the decisions of the conference. The Dutch, Belgium or Portuguese delegates will not take any part in the armament discussions. Everyone who has to pay ar income tax knows how bothersome the task tax knows how bothersome the task of making up the return is and how difficult it is for him to know whether ; jor not he has exactly complied with J the law. It appears that Senator' Smoot of Utah, who is a member of the Senate Finance Committee and as expert ar interpreter of taxation j problems as we have, had as much trouble with his 1917 income tax turn as any of the rest of us. re-He worked hard over it and got a treasury expert to verify it as correct And v.- t i xy . fies him that the return was not pro- perly made out aiAl that he still owes the United States governmerA a tidy sum of $3,000. j j I , ! j j ; ' ; j j " II themselves, or at least accept tips to keen their mouths shut, and some of these may yet be holding their jobs. There has been a complaint of an unusual amount of crime. The crim- . , , . , , ,. ... . , mal element have felt that the law and order iorces oi me community were too busy with other work to look ; after them, and that they could ply their nefarious trades with less inter., j ference than usual. The first responsibility wherf such a - - I condition appears, rests upon police ' forces and the courts. If police forces are short handed, they must give up jkinds of k that are merely for the ii.U"c:iiorc U- wit " themselves to watening ara appre hending criminals. If drivers of automobiles and trucks would show decent care, it would not be necessary to have so many policemen serving! as traffic officers at congested street erossirgs. The criminal elements of the community must be kept down, even if we are subject to annoyaices and minor perils in other directiois. Modern penology is inclined to treat a first offender lightly and by the probation system t give him a chance to make good. But if he shows a per. sjstent criminal tenderJby, merciful treatment not merely encourages him to persist, but it is a bid to all un - caught criminals to take their chances, Railroad official need to be viedlant jn the care of the property entrusted i to their care.

PRACTICAL EDUCATION'. Everyone agiees that the schools must be mere "practical." It is perfectly evident that we have strenuous times ahead. People can not go or' in the old ways of inefficiency, and pay the national debt and meet high prices. But when you try to get people to agree on what "practical" means, you get the very widest diversity of opin- iorz. What one considers as the most practical education, another will de- novnee as a fad. To the old timers, practical educa- tion mean, something like the Three Rs, such fundamentals as arithmetic, penmanship, spelling, etc. The old time teachers arM school boards used to emphasize strongly a very thorough course in arithmetic. The young folks were drilled and drilled in their fractions ar.d interest 3 ? a a 1 t . over and over again. It was thought that if a boy coulJ figure up the cost cf a load of wood and compute correctly a long series of partial pay- mei.'is on a note, he had accomplished a great thing. I Actually though, the ability to do ' such sun,s correctly is of trifling importance. The arithmetic that most people use m daily life is exceedingly simple and could be learned in a short time. If you borrow money and make partial payment?, the bank will figur - tnem witn pcrtt; -.curacy. So far therJ as the actual informa- tion imparted by the old time course in arithmetic went, it was of no great value. If that was the only use of it, th old timers spent far too time on it. They labored for much whole terms over long examples of square and cubo root and involved treatment ' : : ; j ; ; ; . Eyes Tested, Glasses Fitted by iState Registered OPTOMETRISTS Dr. C. C.
