iSheldon Livingston lives on a farm near the little hamlet of Por-
cupine, Wis. Thero are reasons why you ought to know him.
Sheldon is 11 years old. The schoolhouse is two miles from the
Uvisfrtdn home. Horning and night, through «now, rain 0r shine,
Sheldon walked this distance, swinging his dinntr pail and his school
In four and a half years he has not missed a day!
Think of this, city children, you who complain when you have to
walk four blocks; who stay home every chance you get, clap your
hands every time there's a holiday and would play liookoy all the time,
if you dared! •
Now we have no idea what kind of a man Sheldon Livingston will
make. He may become president of the United States or only a plain
citizen living on a Wisconsin farm.
But one thing is certain: In whatever niche in life it shall be his
destiny to be placed he will be a steady, punctual, dependable person—
the kind you won't have to watch.
To borrow a phrase from the stable, he'll stand without being
hitched.—-Wichita Beacon.
The Director of the Census has recently an limine fed plans which
promi e an Important extension of our knowledge ot cahcel\ At the
suggestion of the American Society for the Controi ot Cancer he has
ordered {jie publication of the mortality statics of this disease in much
fuller detail than hitherto. As soon as the 1M4 returns are received
from the states and cities which make up the United States Registration
Area, they will be made the subject of a special cancer monograph
When the figures are subsequently published In the annual report of
the Division of Vital Statistics, the deaths from eantfW Will be grouped
under some thirty headings, instead of only seven, as heretofore. This
means that the returns of deaths from malignant disease will be classi-
fied by parts atod organs of the body affected, as in the standard re-
ports of the Registrar General of England and Wales. While this
change may not at first appear to be of consequence to the public, it
has practical bearingB that may prove of considerable importance. This
detailed analysis of cancer mortality in the United States should bring
out new and useful information as to the prevalence of the disease, and
thereby contribute to the better understanding of its controllable fea-
tures. Such a study as the Census Bureau purposes to make should also
throw clearer light on the question of Whether or not cancer is reall>
A new cotton raising plan, known as the "single stalk" plan, is be
ing boosted by the government. The theory is that many single stalks
close together produce more cotton than few well-branched stalks far
apart, and figures are given to show that this is the case.
The pool hall bill as passed by the senate appears to be just about
what the people really want. The people at large hate nothing against
pool halls as such. Their fight is directed against the pool halls that
run not as a legitimate business, but as a blind for law violation.

On« Five Minutes In the Life of Her
Dead Soldier Son.
A mother lost her soldier son Tin-
news came to her In dispatches from
the war. lie had fallen fighting nobly
at the bend of his regiment
She was Inconsolable. "Oh. that 1
Wight see him again!" she prayed. "If
only for Ave minutes-but to see him!"
An angel answered her prayer. "For
five minutes," the angel said.
"Quick, quick!" said the mother, her
tears turned to momentary Joy.
"Yes." said the angel, "but think a
little. He was a grown man There
are thirty years to choose from. EIow
would you see him 7"
The mother paused and wondered.
"Would you see him." said the angel,
"as a soldier dying heroically at his
post? Would you see him as he left
you to Join the transport? Would you
see him as you first saw him in his uni
form? Would you see him again as on
that day at school when he stepped to
the platform to receive the highest
honoTs a boy could have?"
"How did you If dow?" the mother
■asked, ber eyes lighting
The ansel smiled "Would you see
him as a baby at your breast? Would
"No." said the mother. "1 would have
him for five minutes ;is he was one day
when he ran In from the garden to ask
my forgiveness for being naughty He
was so small and so unhappy, and he
was very hot. and the tears were mak
Ing streaks down his face through the
garden dirt And hrtflew Into my arms
with such force that he hurt me."—C
V. Lucas In "Lucas' Annual."
Cavalry Mounts Revel In the Dash and
Fury of the Charge.
It will probably surprise you. said a
retired colonel of hussars, to learn that
a eavalrv horse usually enjoys a battle
at least as much as his rider and dis
plays as much courage In It lie will
chafe and stamp with impatience while
waiting for the order to charge and at
the signal will dash forward like a
greyhound released from the leash, full
of fire and fury and often neighing
wildly At the moment of contact with
the enemy he will rear, striking and
biting savagely at the opposing horse?
and trampling down the Infantry.
When his rider falls he will dash
along with his fellows and crash as
gallantly Into the foe. In the famous
charge of the I.lght brigade scores of
riderless horses swept down the "val
ley of death." thundering through the
smoke on to the Uusslau guns, and gal
loped back In safety with the shat
tered remnant of the brigade. Five
horses raced neck and neck with Lord
Alfred Paget, who rode In advance of
the line, so eager were they to get at
the enemy
And not only Is the well trained
charger as brave as his rider Ue is
often as Intelligent He knows the
bugle calls |ii«<t as well and answers
them as promptly In fact. I have
known mam a case in which s horse
has put his rider right w hen he has
mistaken an order and has gone fault
lessly through n maneuver n spite of
the efforts of his mistaken master to
make him do rhe wrong thing.—I>ondon

How to Become Rich.
"My early (ti fticu I ties taught me some
thrift," said Mark Twain once, "but 1
never knew whether it was wiser to
spend my last cenfcfor a cigar to smoke
or for an apple to devour."
"I am astounded." observed a friend,
"that a person with so little decision
^should have met wifh so much worldly
Mark Twain bent his head gravely.
"Indecision about spending money,"
he said. Mls worthy of cultivation.
When I couldn't decide what to buy
with my last cent I kept It snd so be
came rich ■
