Tniiinrr..\v the people of Hilkel's- Held will have op[ioftunity to contribute In «ine of tlie innst worthy ctinses possible, the providing of a permanent home for the helpless children "f 'tie community, and the Cnlil'iiniifin believes that without any nririnir, cverv limn, vvom- an ami i-liild will evince an individual interest in the movement and one that will manifest itself in the most practical form, the of th? fund thjJt is to be raised. The generous offer of Mrs. T. A. Tracy to donate a block of land for the home that is to be is evidence that about all that it will be necessary for the people to do _« to supply th'.' cash for the Ijtt1k',ifi#, find tlie new children's shelter will be assured. No newspaper and no individual will pretend to set a figure on the outcome of the popular movement that is to find practical expression tomorrow, hut we believe that it will not be discounting the day to prophesy that the projected home is very nearly a reality at this time. The people of Kern county are n srenerous people. That has been demonstrated many times in the past when the occasion demanded, and there was never H cause more worthy than that which is now before the public. SELF DESTRUCTION. I" —— An investigator lias recently been going into the subject of filicides and from the figures obtainable be finds that in a single year some 10,000 people kill thcm- Belves in the I T nited States alone us many as were slain in sonic the hi>/ battles of the Civil War. The number is increasing t'ron year to year, the growth in sui cides in twenty years lie'mir inon than loo per cent.

Sta• month of • rid is glad, isliine, more and blooms time in the year nil others by travel into the unknown, while in the dark month of December, the suicides are least, and the deduction is drawn thnt the man with a grouch is out of harmony with the gladsome month of June, and finding little sympathy in the world about him, he concludes to fly to those ills he knows not of. It is also demonstrated that war or any great calamity lessens the number of suicides, the fulling' away being marked in the ease of a declaration of war. After the San Francisco earthquake, though suicides had before been common enough in that city, there were hut two in three months following the catastrophe. The figures show that many more men than women tnke their lives, thnngh this is not strange, as women ure far braver in ml- versitv than men. It takes cour- J.

There can b the publicity little •' the doubt that tacts surrounding a sii'c'ide le.uls others to self destruction, and th,; nevmrm- pers are accused of being a factor in the heavy increase in the number of such deaths. However. that may be suicide of race suicide, but individual adult is going to attract a good deal of attention in the civilized world if the number of such deaths increases in, the future as they have in the past.
