"Now If you will, all take partners «nd fo, in a procession, wo will march to the feast," and they, all hustled around to find the ono they "Wished to take to suppor. When overyono had found a partner, they fell In line and •with Billy and Nannie at the head to show them tho way. they marched down the hill In order, the tallest going first, which were itho horses and cows, next tho donkeys and goats, then the sheep and pigs, followed by the dogs anil cats, aflor which came the strutting peacocks, gooso, ducks am 'chickens. Ahead, of them aU flew the birds, taking the place of a band, each one slnrlua; as loudly and sweetly as It could and still bo on the wing'. The larks, song sparrows and warblers sang soprano. 4:i:e robins, bluebirds and grosbeaks contralto, the ring-doves and pigeons alto, while tho hawks, blackbirds and owls nans bass, And their voices rose and foil In ported waves of music as the procession •wound down ..the hill in tho dew of the evenng, as the sun dropped to rest hehnd the distant mist-clad h'.'lgi, leaving an afterglow of pink behind him. And as pink Is a symbol of love, this proved to bo a love feast as well as a birthday party. (Tomorrow starts a new story, toJl- ing how Billy and Nannie made a trip together. A. sane Fourth of July moans a tireless oho,, according to Fire- Chief Al SJtout, wfe> points out that while the holiday Is less dangerous than formerly, It still constitutes a menace to life and property. "The principal life hazard due to the use of firecrackers, sparklers and other fireworks," said the Chlur, "affects the children and consequently .thoir Indulgence In such means of celebrating tho day should be rigidly restricted or entirely prohibited. I have no deslro to curtail the. pleasures of the youngsters, but the situation calls for decided action. The safest •way to stage a display of pyrotechnics la to make tho occasion a community affair and have tho exhibition under the supervision of firemen equipped with extlnguishng apparatus. "ThordTmger of firearms Is obvious, hut the Repealled, 'sparkler," wlhldh has become notably -popular In recent yoara, presents a serious hazard that Is too soldom recognized. The plaything enilts sparks that In themselves are not harmful, but the firo coro supporting the sparkling element bo- comos white hot and in that condition will Ignite inflammable material's. For thlB reason sparklers have caused many deaths,-the victims -wwally be- Inff™Toung girls wearing flimsy summer dresses. Therefore, prohibit the sparkler If you would 'protect your children's lives. ''Another serious matter is the proseueo of quantities of fireworks and other explosives in smaill retail" stores not properly equipped for such storage or legally orttitled to handlo combustibles. I want to call the public's attention to the fact that this is In dlroot violation or a city ordinance, (uid we Intend this year to pro&coute Infringements more vigorously than ever before. "Toy baKoona. . uninir kerosene- soaked -waste constitute another danger, since they may fall upou wooden shlnglo roofs and other Inflammable surfaces and thus cause fire. They may In addition ignite foreat and brash areas. Teachers College Instructor Does ! Not Approve of Slip Shod Practices. Emporia, Kan., June 2G.—Miss Birdie Visser, ot Hutchinson, a fresh-! man in tho Kansas State Teachers ! College, Emporia, * lias made grades , good enough to justify- her promotion | from the beginning counso in English rhetoric to a more advanced class. j "Miss Visser Is ono of 13 out of a i class of BOO to pass the tests," eaid Professor H. It. Barrett, head of tho Snglish department at the Kansas, TeacherB College, "The tests were rather technical, hut Tepeated experiments have shown that a technical knowledge of English fundamentals, and good oral English go hand in hand. Tho large number, of errors made on comparatively simple sentences show that many of the hlgn schools of the state are failing to get down to fundamentals In their English courses. English clashes In high schools should hot he 'parcelled out' to other instructors who happen to have a vacant period, but should bo handled only by competent Instructors. This would solve the present poor English problem and would do away with' the necosslty for "good . English week" and other English drives." Miss Visser has taught In the Hutchinson school system for tho past seven years. She will have the samo position next year. While In high' erhnol she specialized in Latin and English.
