Because of his work he aroused an interest in education, which is chiefly responsible for the public school system as it exists in the United States. Mann was born in Massachusetts in 1798. Although be was a poor boy, he put himself through Brown University, and graduated with the highest honors. When he was 27 years old he was admitted to the Massachusetts bar. In 1827 be was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives and be served there continuously until 1833 when he was transferred to the state Senate. Later he became secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Education. Mann went to Europe and studied the school systems there. He held lectures and wrote reports on the condition of education abroad and his own state. And he set forth what he believed the aims of education should be. As a result of this, and his own skilful administration, he did much to further the progress of education. He made the educational system of Massachusetts a model that other states followed. Mann also served in the Congress of the United States. In 1853 he became the first president of Antioch College, at Yellow Springs, Selkirk founded Winnipeg colony By BOB BOWMAN One of the biggest land estate deals in history was arranged on June 12, 1811 when Lord Selkirk leased 116,000 square miles from the Hudson's Bay Company. The rent was a nominal 10 shillings a year but Selkirk had to buy a controlling interest in the company. Eventually the deal cost him his life and a large part of his fortune. Selkirk was a Scottish Lord whose ambition was to help poor people In Britain by settling them on profitable farms in Canada. His first settlement was In Prince Edward Island in 1803 and was fairly successful. Descendants of the first settlers are still there. The second was at Baldoon near present-day Chatham, Ontario, but It was a failure. The settlers said that the land was no good for agriculture but today it is one of the best corn-growing areas in Canada. Selkirk had read Alexander Mackenzie's account of his trips across Canada and decided that the Red River area was the most promising location. He began working on the plan in 1802 but did not achieve his goal until 1811. His grant included a large part of present-day Manitoba, Minnesota and North Dakota five times bigger than Scotland. The first Red River settlers sailed from Scotland In 1811 but had to spend the winter at York Factory, Hudson Bay.

But you must be careful to explain all the rules, as the following story points out: June 2, on the npper Ottawa River, the weather became very strange ... I secluded myself in a small ravine among the evergreens and shrubs and set out to solve some problems. About two hours passed. I grew tired and closed my eyes . . . A sudden rumble made me sit up In bewilderment. Thunder? But in the sky there was no trace of cloud. I calmed myself down and sat back again. Suddenly I felt that someone was looking at me. I opened my eyes and saw a scuba diver. Only somehow he seemed -strange. "W-what do y-you w-want here?" I asked. A jingling metallic voice pronounced: "I am here for the initial contact." "W-whlch contact?" "Between the inhabitants of our planets." I forced a laugh: "You mean to say that you come from another planet?" Radio highlights for 3.03 p.m. CBO OPERA BY REQUEST.

I quickly explained the rules of play. "O.K.," said the visitor, "let's play." In spite of his electronic gadgetry, the visitor's class of play was not the highest on first learning the moves.

I attempted to tell this to my opponent, but he firmly pointed his "hand" to hi. "This is my second King. It's not my fault that you didn't tell me everything. I played the whole game with this combination in mind." To begin the contact with a conflict was uncomfortable. There was nothing to do but continue. What to do now? Of course, I could play 2.

The size of your handwriting suggests the ability to work without being distracted. You are a frugal person, who abhors waste be it time, material or form.

Not too much so, but Just enough so that you will be noticed, favorably. ( Stamp corner) Historical events recalled by stamps, postal markings By DOUGLAS PATRICK (Postal history: part two) Postal history, one of the many ramifications of stamp collecting. Includes all the aspects of postal services from the beginning to the present time. Philatelists find interest in the accounts of one country or part of the postal service such as postage stamps, postal markings of all kinds: handstruck, machine or manuscript information and complete letters (covers) with all postmarks. On Dec. 30, 1836 Henry Whlt-cbouse an American in Paris wrote to Nathaniel Thrift Rochester at Rochester, N.Y. a community named in honor of his father. The letter (a postal history item) tells this story: "The papers will convey to you intelligence of a fourth attempt on the life of poor Louis Philippe; like the others most providentially unsuccessful. We saw him a few minutes after the occurrence. He was proceeding to open In person the Chambers and passed through the double line of military from the palace across the Pont Louis XVI de la Concorde to the House of Deputies. When he came opposite to the large gate leading from the quay into the garden of the Tui-leries a young man fired when the Royal coach was within six feet of him. "At the moment the King was bowing at the window and one of the young dukes was at the other.

The King was untouched and proceeded to the House (of Deputies) delivering in person the speech from the throne. The shattered glass cut the young Due d'Orleans severely in the neck. He bled profusely, and his brother was cut in the face. "The assassin was immediately arrested, refused to give any name which he had sedulously cut out from his linen. He maintained an obstinate silence on all points except his acting without accomplices. He has since been identified by his unhappy father, and proved to be a mechanic, 22 years of age actuated only by political fanaticism. He, is just as I supposed from the peculiar tendency of the French populace that the publicity given to the awful design of Fleschi and the semi-martyr character of his crime and execution have excited perhaps hundreds to attempt the same diabolical act dreaming themselves Brutus to try for Caesar's death." The letter continues: "The poor wretch (the mechanic) will be executed, probably quite privately. The government now realizes the state of the public mind. Hereafter the King will go out so guarded to render any attempts impossible they say. Some other Fleschi will invent an infernal machine to take the cortege from some window and bring blood and ruin on the crowned head of France.
