You may be a ""succcessful" American business man. But do you take an interest in the government which protects your property? Or are you merely one of the kickers who complain about the "radicals?"

Now that the gruesome horror cf i the crime has had its first run in the public craze, people all over the country are beginning; to look with more or less interest on the preparations being: made by the defense law yers in the case of Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold. There will probably not be anything startlinerly new about the defense. Aside from the gruesome features of the crime and the social prominence of the boys' families, there would -be little to attract attention to the preliminary work of the defense. For there is nothing- new in the insanity business to be sprung; by the lawyers for the defense. It has, in fact become almost a matter of routine whenever counselors f-.r the defense of accused murderers find themselves confronted by a preponderance of evidence pointing: positively to guilt. It was a wise man, indeed, who once defined true knowledge as the abiity to know how little we know-. The high-sounding- phrases employed by "eminent alienists," who almost invariably testify in behalf of the si.;e which employs them, must be little less than revolting to those who realize that, after all, there is r,o pathology for insanity, and, as a matter of fact, no definition of the term. The Franks case, like nearly all ea-es which hinge upon the matter ci psychological juris prudence, may be !'.!' -d down tii thf ln-inpnph-sWfl r-esHon- wl,nt h-n-f TW I defendants in murder trials are of il unfortunates tut- :;u'u i v-l lilf lua who hurl themselves ,,-,v ' to the bar of iustice and declare, "Behold, I am Napoleon. 1 j; . 1 ii. i'ufs tt uim ft;;; u ioi ice accepieu i p standard conception of right and If this "v - " v-' be so, then all criminals u-e insane.

Fseudo-scienti-ts and ' parlor psychiatrists take a certain fiendish delight in declaring with the conviction of Sir Oracle that "all geniuses are insane" especially when they themselves are thoroughly convinced that the title thus defined is not applicable to them. The man in the insane asylum, it must be remembered, often peers through the bars of his padded cell and wonders why the individuals who placed him there are so insane. The theory which seems, to prevail is that the majority shall rule, because the majority is always right, History unfortunately ch alien ges,this dogma.

Your blase New Yorker thinks of it as a bore the same old story. There must be the usual explosion, and the customary public addresses any one of which w ould answer year after year without change. Mothers fear for the safety of their young. Father often hard worked looks upon it as a day of the baseball game. Will the time come when men on this almost Eacred day will rededi-cate themselves to the service of In-depenelence; to a determination to play their part in the shaping of the destines cf America; to put steam behind the natural and God-given desire for Independence; that kinel of Independence which means freedom in politics, in religion, in life, with breadth of vision and a regard for the rights of others? Liberty, Independence and Freedom ; ! I I ; MOVING BY AIR. One of these days when people move from town to town, their furniture will be transported in airplanes. So predicts C. W. Warner of Boston, who is said to be the pioneer in cross-country motor truck transportation of household effects. "I am speaking carefully when I say the airplane will some day take over the distant transportation of home furnishings," Warner declares. "There is a limit to the capacity and speed of the motor truck. As people move faster, their belongings must move faster in their w ake. In years to come, a man will give his new address to the movers. Within 24 hours he should be able to walk in the new front door with his wife and children, and find everything as he left them yesterday 3000 miles away." Doubt it ? Well, it doesn't seem as improbable as present speed of moving from city to city, by trains and motor trucks, would have seemed to the former generations that moved slowly across the continent in covered wagons drawn by oxen or horses. It's unquestionably within human power to keep on developing the airplane until furniture could be moved through the air for hundreds of miles without great expense. But will it be worth while ? Are we really any better off, by reason of all tills speed and so-called efficiency? Wasn't life more worth living, back in the Covered Wagon days? Weren't people happier? And didn't they have more time and opportunity for the improvement of self which, after all, apparently is u ijic mici. 'uhjtoc .l which we're put on eartn . HOW TO LOWER TAXATION. Increased taxation following barometrically the rising cost of government is causing alarm in every state of the union. It is a peculiar fact that despite repeated warnings the people are still grasping at the shadow and missing entirely the struggle with the substance. The people of this community and hundreds of like communities will be better off if they take their eyes off of war. If we want to cut cut down the amount of money each man and woman actually pays out in taxation then the thing for us to do is to look right at home. There is not a township or a village in America where the expenditures could not be materially lessened without restricting in any way tthe improvements and advantages we enjoy. This arrangement is not written without a full appreciation of the men who serve. Every man who serves in an official capacity is deserving of praise rather than blame. At the same time the people must coiis.Kier local government from the j angle of the results rather t n ii-ova j tne -.jmiciO oi seryieo. rer.aercu eee bring otu local expenditure:: to i he v.-i. -h ;-.--; ih. t will bo th step in the ri.eht direction. wt irs' I HIGH SCHOOL VALUE. Many parents are doubtless debating whether they should send the boys and girls who completed the course in the district schools last to high schools this fall. One f.uestion they probably ask is: "Will it pay in dollars and cents?" Tire United States Department of Agriculture anel the various state agricultural colleges have made a number of investigations of the differences between the incomes of educated and uneducated farmers. All of these studies show that in the majority of cases the better trained fanners receive the better incomes. The results cited in the following studies are typical of these investigatons : The Department of Agriculture reports a survey of three representative areas in Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, which shows that tenant farmers with a high school education receive an average annual labor income of $526 a year more than the men with only a common school education. Cornell university has estimated that a high school education is wrorth as much to a farmer as ?6,000 worth of bonds bearing Ave per cent WILLIE MACK WILLIE MACK, one of the most popular entertainers on the Chautauqua circuits, will be with The Black and White Hale Chorus and Minstrels when that great musical organization comes to the local Assembly. He Is one of the end men In the minstrel show with which they will close their entertainment and he will have an active part in both programs, afternoon and evening. Last season he was with The Davles Opera Company having the principal comedy role in the opera "Olivette." In the winter season he played successful vaudeville engagements in the larger cities. He is one of the youngest comedians in the profession, being but slightly over 20 years of age. Mack has a smile that is infectious. You are almost sure to smile every time he has something to say for he has a wonderful sense of humor and knows how to express it. He has a delightful bass-baritone voice and his vocal numbers are always repeatedly encored.

Tin in The Candle" An Old French Family Law There was an old French peasant law called "The Pin in the Candle," interpreted by the English as "The Pwight to Be Heard." In the old days if a man and his wife disagreed, the official to whom an appeal was made put two pins in a lighted tallow- candle, New-s. The husband was allowed to talk until the flame burned down to his pin, and then he had to liste. while his wife talked until the f ame reached her pin. passed lo oblivion Ion a-' since etjua but its influence became a part spaces apart, says the Detroit cf the v family life of France, as the Delinatcr tells us.

Community Service by Clothing Making Classes Children's garment making is taught in a very practical way at Hutchinson high school, Buffalo, N. Y. Clothing classes are sewing for charity organizations and children's homes. Materials are furnished by the institutions for which they work. In the second year remodeling- is taught. Old garments are cleaned and ripped up, good parts are salvaged, a little skillful piecing or mending is done, combinations are made and a "new" garment evolves. Acquiring skill and learning methods valuable to themselves, pupils of this sewing class are also performing a valuable service for the community. If you haven't read the want ads do it now. It pays.

In morals, we announce the principle but once and expect the standard to be reached instantly, and maintained. Until we implant a better standard of honesty in the w-alks of everyday life it is difficult to see how from the ranks of such loose morality we can recruit officials and business men likely to reach that standard of integrity which the country demands. A GOOD MAN LEAVES US. "When Mr. and Mrs. Lowenstine moved to South Bend last week the town lost one of its best business men and boosters.

And all that the well favored and exclusive of the earth have, cannot replace it and that is just God's pure sunshine- This is what sunshine does: It makes wealth possible. It gives to labor its life and hope. Without it there would be no food at all no light, no power, nor even life itself. All of the law materials in existence are possible only because of the sunshine. The deadly germs that destroy life keep out of the way of sunshine, for they cannot live under its life-giving force. The seeds planted in the ground, and the flowers that have leaped to life from the ground, open and sing forth their silent melodies and give forth their pure and spreading per- Collaborators Give Opinions on Own Play Disciple of Bossuet and Moliere, dramatic author and ' theo!ogian--a rare enough combination David Au-gustin Brueys, who died 200 years ago, November 26, 1723, collaborated long and consistently with his friend, Palaprat, says a translation from Le Petit E'arisien of Paris, France. Together they wrote many plays, some of then) failures, others successes, among which was a little masterpiece called "Grondeur," which Is still played. Speaking of this play, Brueys once remarked: "The first act is entirely mine. It Is excellent. The second has been marred by a few scenes by ralaprat. It is mediocre. The third Is w holly Pain prat's. It is very bad." Palaprat considered the play otherwise exactly otherwise. That is how collaboration was understood 200 years ago and how. without doubt, it is understood today. Kansas City Star. Fooled Again. There was silence, save for the scratching of pens and the soft footfall of a watchful examiner, for an examination was in progress. Suddenly the eye of the examiner caught a student who was studying his watch with more than usual Interest. "Mr. Smith," said the watcher, "I will have a look at your timepiece. If you please." Smith seemed worried, but he handed over the watch. The other opened It and saw pasted across the dial a tiny slip of paper bearing the laconic legend, "Fooled." Of course, Smith was allowed to resume his work, but the examiner kept his eye on him, and soon he thought fit to have another look at the watch. But this time he did not go for the face. lie opened the back instead. And there, sure enugh, he found a small folded paper. Examining it eagerly, he read: "Fooled airain!" Record Catch of Fish.

When he has had adventure after adventure during his travels, his story bristles with excitement. Such a story is brought back by Captain Kilroy Harris from Australia where he spent many months iu travel afoot and on horseback. He will tell his story in his lecture on the second day of our Chautauqua. It will be il-ustrated with slides made from photograph-? taken by himself.
