Fairbanks Still on Gri.l.
indianapolis, Ind., July 12.—A reso-
lution condemning Vice President
Fairbanks for serving cocktails and
wine at his table was adopted at a
meeting of the state executive com-
mittee of the prohibition party. It
was presented by the Rev. C. M.
Kroft of the Indiana conference, be*
fore which Mr. Fairbanks, it is said,
will be a candidate for election as a
delegate to the quadrennial confer-
ence of the Methodist church at Bal-
timore next spring. Mr. Kroft said:
"I do not believe that the confer-
ence of my church will elect as dele-
gate a man who has violated the rules
of his church by serving liquors in his
home, even though that man should
occupy the high office of vice presi-

Operators Ready to Quit.
Chicago,July 12.—Operators in Chi-
cago announced their readiness to de-
sert their keys next Monday morning
unless Labor Commissioner Neill suc-
ceeds in effecting a compromise with
the telegraph companies before that
time. According to local dealers, fur-
ther delays in the strike program will
not be tolerated. They expect prac-
tically a unanimous vote to strike at
Sunday's mass meeting.
All activity was directed towards
preparing for this meeting. The meet-
ing will be called by the local execu-
tive board, which will be in session
for that purpose.
The Western Union officials were
wide-awake to the threatening situa.
tion. General Superintendent Cook
said everything was in readiness to re-
sist a strike, in case a walkout was
Administrative officers of the Car-
negie Foundation for the Advancement
of Teaching aud of the General Educa-
tion Hoard are entrusted with the
handling of enormous funds, the inter-
est on which is to be applied, in the
one case to pensioning college profes-
sors, and In the other to helping needy
colleges. The task of the officers of
both these Institutions has been antl
is, complicated by varying educational
standards and the lack of an estab-
lished criterion. One of the earliest
works of both Institutions, therefore.
Is likely to be a sort of standardizing
of education in America. The question.
"What Is a college?" would be an
swered to-day in different ways by dif
ierent men. There is a vast difference
between the institutions that bear the
name, in the requirements for admis-
sion and in the courses of study which
must be taken to entitle the student
to a degree. Something, indeed, to-
ward the establishment of a college
educational standard was accom-
plished about 25 years ago, when the
requirements for admission were made
the subject of much discussion, and
finally of substantial agreement among
a number of college faculties, savs
Youth's Companion. Modifications
have been made since then in the re
qulremei'ts. und there have been ad
ditioi.h und ■ !. auctions, but a general
agreement still exists. What is needed
now Is u test which goes deeper aud
reaches farther—which will take ac-
count of the purposes and Ideals of
colleges, and measure both the attain-
ments of the professors and the suc-
cess with which they do their work.
If either the Carnegie Foundation or
the General Kdueatlon ltoard. or both
together, can do this, they will there-

We know you are busy, but wait a minute! We
want to tell you about the greatest mattress we
have ever offered to the public.
SEALY MATTRESSES are made of Long
Staple Cotton, no tufting, tacking or binding.
Why? Because the grade of cotton used in the
Sealy stays together without tufts. Each Sealy
Mattress is guaranteed, not only 30 or 60 days,
but 10 to 20 years. Can you buy any other mat-
tress with such a guarantee?
A customer recently said to us, when asked if
he needed a good mattress: "You haven't a mat-
tress in your house as good as one I have had for
eight years--l have the Sealy, and it is the best
mattress I ever slept on."
Prices very little more than the cheap felts
which are made of linters.
I have for sale a new well built and
well arranged house. Will sell on
time to suit buyer. Enqule of O. C.
