One Year ,
Mora] Education erf
By Thoau H. Cofdoo, Bmiod, Mam.
Institutions of learning
cannot neglect the moral
education of their students.
Bach year universities of
learning are placing more
importance upon the moral
training of students than
they have ever done before. Many men are efficient economically, but
cramped intellectually. The culture of the world of thought into which
they have been born, the work of great minds for past ages, ig but a blank.
We can teach mathematics as a cold, reasoning science, but not so
with morality. The only morality that is enduring is that set on fire by
pressure. Nevertheless, it has been produced countless times by a mere
It is, therefore, necessary that the young man anil young women
be taught, so as to make that moral adjustment.
A man in a responsible position today must be morally, as well as
Just as essential, and more so, is the moral adjustment. Behind the
bars of prisons we can find men who could easily make the economic and
intellectual adjustment, but to whom society has said: "You are not at
home in this world. Go to prison !" Education which fails to bring about
moral progress is a failure and a disgrace.
Good Things Found
in Old Homestead
' By L C. BARTON, N«w York Gty
How dear to our hearts
were the old-fashioned
houses, that stood back,
away from the broad, dusty-
road. The parlor, (part
chamber and also the gar-
den, the yard full of grass
(hat so seldom was mowed. Ilow many good things grew in that kitchen
garden—potatoes and turnips, squash, cabbage and lncts, and into the
cellar they flowed without measure, and all the long winter we had such
That old-fashioned cellar, that cool, well-tilled cellar, how we sigh
as we think of those many good "eats!"
Oil, to think of the milk pan and the cream that stood on it the
basket of eggs and the deep dish of "souse;" the great hunks of cheese
and the barrel of apples, and all other things in that old-fashioned house!
The cellar, the buttery, the smokehouse and henyard; oh, give us,
we pray thee, the old-fashioned house.
Dangers Cling to
By A. A. MORSE, Philadelphia, Pa.
That many dangers cling
(o alkaline soaps is empha-
sized editorially by the Ix>n-
don Lancet, in which atten-
tion is called to the large
proportion of mineral aflh
and alkali in dearer toilet
soaps. When these soaps, after being dissolved in water, touch the skin
an excessive seeretion of the acid sebum and sweat follows and the pro-
tective outer layer of the skin, the epithelium, is partially dissolved. This
means intense irritation, which is apt to lead to skin complications.
In the cheaper soaps the cottonseed oil and rancid fats used are respon-
sible for considerable irritation. Castor oil soap is found least irritating,
but it dissolves rather too freely and is apt to become rancid. Cocoanut
oil soap is decidedly irritating and palm oil soap is less so, while tallow
6oap is least irritating of all.
Dr. Frederick Gardiner, accepted as an authority on this subject, holds
that many bad effects come from those soaps made chiefly of cheaper fats
and cottonseed and cocoanut oils. Formerly tallow and olive oil were more
used and the skin did not suffer.
The natural conclusion is that as little soap as possible should be
used on the skin and that this should tn least alkaline in qualitv. It
should always be well rinsed off, so as to permit the least possible irritation.
The first tiling for a sen
sible person to keep in mind
in planning a vacation is
why he or she is to have it.
Is a vacation just a change,
a bit more free than other
leisure hours, for having a
good time.' Or is it a period that may be profitably spent in true recrea-
tion in recreation that will help make an individual enjov real living for
the time, and also help make him more ready to do his part in the affairs
of the world when vacation weeks have passed.
I he working man or woman who takes a bird's-eye view beyond the
immediate twenty-four hours, and who decides upon a reasonable use of
the usual two weeks' leisure time, will recognize that a vacation ought
to include change and relaxation from mental and physical routine of
daily work. Fhose who are usually kept busy and on the hustle eight
to twelve hours a day are entitled to be as lazv as thev like during vaca-
tion time, and to live in a diffcreut atmosphere. It is common sense
for indoor workers to get out of doors, city folk to go into the country,
j seashore folk to go to the mountains, and those who live among the hills
and mountains to come down to enjoy the ocean and east wind.
If a city young man, or a party of young men, really want a vaca
tion that amounts to something in rest and pleasure while it is going on
and when it is ended, let them consider the possibilities of camp life not
surrounded by too much civilization. Such a camp may be established
in pioneer fashion by hunting a spot, putting up a tent or a shanty, and
roughing it for a week or two weeks. Or camps can be hired, ready made,
with more conveniences.
Camp life is not now limited to young men. There are established
camps for girls and young women, increasing in number and variety each
Another form of outdoor vacationing often combined with camp life
is canoeing. Many young people find pleasure all summer in paddling
their own canoes.
Allied to the camp idea is the bungalow, which permits a sort of camp-
ing out de luxe.
Some working men and women who do not get vacations, or to whom
vacation time doea not provide all the relief they want from city life, or
to whom the expense of the vacation is a matter to cause a second thought,
are invited to consider the "stay-at-home" vacation. The workingman
with a family, and therefore with <juite a different problem to solve at
vacation time than falls to the young man or woman who has only to pack
a suitcase and buy a ticket, may well consider this suggestion. For a
whole family that can go further awav there are cottages to be rented
at lakes and mountains at prices running the whole scale according to
accommodations and locations.
Finally, the reason for a "go-away" or a "stay-at-home" vacation
for the working man or woman is to secure a change of surroundings and
current interests that will bring about a renewal of physical energy anil
mental cheerfulness for the tasks
that are to follow.
Strange Fates of Some
By R T. ARCHIBALD
The discovery of the long'
lost colors of the old Fif-
teenth British regiment in
the garden of Funtington
house, near Chichester, is a
reminder of the strangt
fates that have befallen
many glorious military emblems. The colors of the Eighty-first foot (sincf
disbanded) were captured by American pirates during the war of inde-
pendence and hidden awav in Ireland; the colors of the Twentieth regi-
ment were burnt, prior to the surrender of Saratoga, to prevent their oaf
lure by the enemy. At Bergen-op-Zoom the Royal Scots, to save their
precious colors from falling into French hands, sank them in the rive
though the enemy later fished them out, and when the second battalion
of the Eighth foot was itisnanded at Portsmouth in 1816, the colors were
cut into small pieces and distributed among the officers.
One of the colors of the First Northamptonshire regiment, which had
been carried right through the Peninsular campaign some years ago, was
discovered in a pawnbroker's shop, though how it got there is a mystery
to this day. A similar uncertainty attaches to a pair of old colors of the
Second Border regiment, which were recovered from a London pawnbroker
by Lord Archibald Campbell in 1888.
Four flags, which had accompanied the Gloucester regiment in Kgvpt
and in the Peninsula, were recovered from a York pawnbroker. It appeared
that, having been bequeathed by a colonel of the regiment to his son they
were obtained by a servant, who, falling on evil ways, pawned them for
a few shillings.

VACCINATION OF HOGS A SUCCESS
At Cordell, Washita county, during
the two days' silo school in November,
there was given a public demonstra-
tion of the method of giving the double
simultaneous treatment for hog
cholera. By this treatment the hog is
supposed to become not only safe from
an outbreak of cholera but becomes
immune from the disease.
On this occasion the commercial
club of Cordell bought two pigs weigh-
ing nearly a hundred pounds. These
pigs received the treatment and were
at once placed in a pen where hogs
were dying with the cholera. They
slept for two nights with the carcass
of one of the dead ones. All of the
hogs on the farm died, but these two
pigs lived and showed no effects of
their exposure to the disease. It is
now more than three months since
they were vaccinated and the last ac-
count we had of them, which was the
tenth of January, they were doing fine.

Most of us are entirely too busy to go out of our way for the pur-
pose of offering a deliberate insult. But there are always persons who
scent an affront to their honor and their motives ami imagine that others
have stopped work to injure them in the world's esteem. Their vulner-
able vanity will not let them rest till they have resented the affront. Their

Frequently those who have invited suggestions are the verv ones
who are offended when a candid hint is offered. They want to be told
that they are doing entirely right, and you cannot point out a better way
and be a friend.

When men become the heads of large business they
to neglect the society of their employes. Business worries continually face
them and they usually allow themselves to become so absorbed in them
that the joy in living degenerates. They become surly and cross, are
inclined to hunt the trivial faults of their employes and generally there
exists a spirit of ill feeling between employer and employe.
The business man should not allow his business to interfere with his
social functions, lie should have his pleasures as of old and try and help
the ambitious young man in his employ to realize his aims.
If the head of the business house would talk kindly and encouragingly
to his employe, help him in a good spirit to see his mistakes and show
him how to avoid them in the future, he would gain the friendship and
esteem of his help. Kindness will accomplish all things, while force tends
to cause ill feeling and many times ends disastrously.
