A rather amusing effort to stem t,he tide of immoral publications and advertisements in Paris is being made by tie league called thc "Union for Moral Action," whose president is M.Paul Ded- iardina. The scheme is to oppose the highly colored pictures of scuntily-clad damsels which adorn the walls and fences of Paris by other pictures of moral and chaste subjects, copies of the works of famous painters. So they placarded, on a board fence in front of a house on the Boulevard des Capucines that is being repaired, a series of drawings representing the life of Saint Genevicve, copied from the famoua paintings of Puvis de Chavanncs in the Pantheon, with which every visitor to Paris is familiar. Chavannes himself came down to superintend tbe pastiog; ot the posters on the fence, and all the newspapers gave the affair excellent notices. . . It was a novelty decidedly Parisian and tickeled the far.cy of the boule- vardicrs, who stopped to look at it for the first £4 hours. But alas! although • the moral bill-poster is still there, it BOW attracts scarcely any attention, while the newspaper kiosks have their usual crowds of morbid people looking at the illustrations. One fault was that Uio "Life of Saint Genevieve" was painted in a dull monotr- onons yellow color, not bright enough to attract the eye, so that it -would not arrest the passer-by unless he -knew of it beforehand. To have copied the colors of the original painting would have made the experiment enormously expensive.' As it is, the society has spent $1,000 on this first picture, and is now; trying to sell copies of it in order to get back the money. If it succeeds in this.. it will try a'second. The prospects of a second are extremely doubtful. DOCKED FOR TARDINESS. Rule of Milwaukee Board Wbereby Teacher* Are Fined. Milwaukee is the only city in the- country which runs its schools on a penny basis. Probably DO school commissioners in the land of the starry banner are more ingenious in. inventing way« by which the salaries of thc teachers- of the public schools can be pared down. The latest exploit in this direction i» a rule whereby any teacher who is tardy; a single minute loses one cent of tersal- ory and another ceiit for each minute I lost By an ingenious exercise of cruelty ... • t* ;_ « n ^A <^ TV»T*rtytr A j g ^^ ^UgeHlOUS CAA31^»»^ ^* w—»-v „ . >D , C "- I the teacher herself is made to report sion secured by .

This concession-will be of great value to mill men for the reason that water is cheaper :uxl -more effective than steam, and, while the mills have been running just the-same, without water they will get a better product with the use of even a little water than by exclusive steam power. Thc use of the water will 'be under the- direction of thc new Necnab & Menasha Water Power company, and the amouiitdrawn will be limited to about 47,000 cubic feet a minute. This is a little less than the present inflow into tho lake and will maintain tho level where it is,-at the crest of the dam, for some time before it becomes necessary to reduce it below that point. In no case, however, will it be drawn, more than six inches below the crest ol the dam until tbo close of navigation, when it is expected that a large amount will be allowed M be taken throughout tlie winter.

There is no excuse accepted. It is one- cent a minute -without mercy. The- time is taken by the school clock, with- which the 'teacher's watch must agree. There is DO allowance for difference of watches as on thc railroads. If a teacher is a minute late at the first opportunity she must walk up to the prin- cipal's' office and request that he sec that she has a cent's worth of absence placed against her name.
