NEW SCHOOL IDEA
EDUCATION BY HOROSCOPE IS
Matter Has Been Taken Up Serious*
ly in England and a Thorough
Test of Its Possibilities Is
to Be Made.
Education by horoscope for the men'
(al development of the young Is hav-
ing a remarkable vogue in England
With the education bill in parliament
exciting discussion among both clergy
and taity, the new idea of arriving at
the mental condition of children—
namely, by means of casting horo-
scopes—may be one way of solving
the various problems before the coun-
try. A new society has come forward
and offered "Horoscope Scholarships,"
each worth $75. Strangely enough,
these scholarships, while competitive,
do not depend on the efforts of the
children themselves. Parents who
wish to win a $75 horoscope scholar-
ship have to fill out a competition
form, giving the name of the child,
date and hour of birth, and where the
birth was registered. The last condi-
Hon is essential in order to prevent
parents who may know something of
astrology themselves from "faking" a
brilliant horoscope from a hypotheti-
cal date, and thus even doing the stars
out of their job.
The child whose horoscope shows
the most promising future will be
awarded one of the prizes. Each of
the application forms will be turned
over to a number of "well-known and
skilled astrologists," and the child
having the best "future" is to be given
the chance, as it were, of living up
to it. For instance, if, among the
competitors, there are any young Na-
poleons, Miltons or George Washing-
tons, this fact at once will be re-
That the new idea is "catching cn"
in England is demonstrated by the
fact that hundreds of parents have
gone in for the prize offered. If the
method becomes general, it will save
educational authorities a vast deal of
trouble. Instead of worrying with the
mentally deficient, the casting of the
horoscope will show where the short-
coming lies, and the child can be dealt,
with accordingly. There is no use in
wasting an education fit for Isaac
Newton on a child who will never rise
above the mathematical attainments
of Simple Simon, for instance, and so
trouble will be saved all 'round.
Children who receive the horoscope
prizes are to get the money in "hard
cash." The idea of giving out real
money in connection with these mys-
tical problems is a novel one in itself,
and that alone will account for the im-
mense popularity of the new scheme.
If mystical money were paid for horo-
scope scholarships, or the children
had to wait until the future corrob-
orated the predictions of the star-
gazing experts, very little interest
would be taken in the matter. The
scholarships are to be given on very
practical subjects. For instance, if
the horoscope indicates that the chi>'l
has musical talent, the $75 award is to
be devoted to developing the musical
faculties, and this course will also be
followed with reference to artistic ge-
nius, business capacity and even "all-
around ability." Just what this last
term signifies it is a little difficult to
say. It seems, however, that the horo-
scopists are not to limit their award.
If a child's career points, for instance,
to a brilliant future as a trust mag-
nate, every facility—to the extent of
the $75—is to be given to develop the
"all-around ability" in the specific di
rections indicated by the star chart.
The sciiolarships for the best, horo-
scopes are not to be confined either to
girls or boys, but either sex is open to
compete. The first three awards are
to be made to children under the age
of 14; while the fourth goes to the
boy or girl between the ages of 14 and
17 whose horoscope denotes the pos-
npfxiion of these qualities most essen-
lial to success in a commercial ctueer
"He is very clever, but evidently far
from a real genius."
"What makes you think so?"
"Why, he is fairly punctual about
keeping his appointments."

i POINTER BY THE PICKPOCKET.
Best Method for the Protection of a
"An acquaintance of mine had a
queer experience the other day," said
a man who has not much faith in any-
thing. "A short time ago he was in-
troduced to a pickpocket by a friend.
The pickpocket is one of the best in
"My friend didn't think anything
more about him, but the other night
he was in p saloon, after he had been
celebrating most of the day. He was
pretty happy and the pickpocket came
in. My friend had a diamond stud in
his tie with a screw attachment. The
pickpocket walked up.
" 'You may not remember me,' he
said, 'but I met you the other night
with so and so. Take a bit of advice
from me. You may lose that shiner
of yours if you're not careful.'
Then th" pickpocket looked at the
diamond. He said the screw attach-
ment wouldn't stop a good thief from
getting the diamond, but he could fix
it. He fished around in his pockets
and produced a rubber band, which he
tied around the screw.
"'Now,' he said, 'they can only get
your stone by biting it off.' "
MOTHER AND CHILD
Both Fully Nourished on Grape-Nuts.
The value of this famous food is
shown in many ways, in addition to
what might be expected from its chem-
Grape-Nuts food is made of whole
wheat and barley, is thoroughly baked
for many hours and contains all the
wholesome ingredients in these ce-
It contains also the phosphate of
potash grown in the grains, which Na-
ture uses to build up brain and nerve
Young children require proportion-
ately more of this element because the
brain and nervous system of the child
grows so rapidly.
A Va. mother found the value of
Grape-Nuts in not only building up her
own strength but in nourishing her
baby at the same time. She writes:
"After my baby came I did not re-
cover health and strength, and the
doctor said 1 could not nurse the baby
as I did not have nourishment for her,
besides I was too weak.
"He said I might try a change of
diet and see what that would do, and
recommended Grape-Nuts food. I
bought a pkg. and used it regularly.
A marked change came over both
baby and I.
"My baby is now four months old,
is in fine condition, I am nursing her
and doing all my work and never felt
better in my life." "There's a Reason."

Thousands of American women
in our homes are daily sacrificing
their lives to duty.
In order to keep the home neat
and pretty, the children well dressed
and tidy, women overdo. A female
weakness or displacement is often
brought on and they suffer in silence,
drifting along from bad to worse,
knowing well that they ought to
have help to overcome the pains and
aches which daily make lifea burden.
It is to these faithful women that
comes as a boon and a blessing,
as it did to Mrs. F. Ellsworth, of
Mayville, N. Y., and to Mrs. W. P.
Boyd, of Beaver Falls, Pa., who say:
