SHALL CURFEW RING FOR CHILDREN?
It looks very much as if during the en
suing autumn and winter months we
should, in all tho stales, ha confronted
with a eurfsw ordinance designed to
keep children off tho streets at night.
Last winter each an ordinance was
passed in a number of cities. Thus far
the movement has been confined to the
cities weat of the Mississippi river hut
gradually it is spreading, toward the East,
and the effort made in the New York
legislature to make a f imilar ordinance
a law is significant. The curfew ordi
nance may bo explained in a few words.
It differs in details in some of the cities
where it has become a law. Bat its
main idea is to keep children under fif
teen or eighteen years off the streets at
night after a certaiu hour, unless accom
panied by parent or gnardian. This
hour is generally fixed at nine p, m., al
though in some towns it is as early as
eight o'clock. At the statid hour, cur
few is sounded by tolling nine strokes on
the fire-bell, the city ball bell or the
principal bell of the town. If a child is
found on the streets after the tolling of
curfew, unaccompanied by a guardian,
it h arrested, and upon tho firet offense
is taken home to the pr2nta and cau
tioned. To the second offense is at
tached a fiDe ranging from three to ten
dollars, or the child may be imprisoned,
as the msgisrtate deems best. This is
the simple ordinance, although, as I say,
it varies in respect to the curfew hour,
the agfc6 of children, ai.il the penalties.
When the curfew ideiv for children
was first suggested in a Minnesota town
a year or so ago, and the fact published
in the newspapers, it was received with
ridicule. But other towns aud cities
took it up, and when tho idea began to
spread more serious views of it were
taken and direct opposition was ar
rayed. It was denounced in one city,
for example, as rank paternalism, the
urgnmeut being advanced that the ordi
nance delegated duties to the munici
pality which rightly and solely belonged
to parents, and should be carried out
only by them. This argument was
found to be inadequate, however, be
cause it was shown that the ordinance
was mainly aimed at the- yonsg hoodlum
element, which, existent in every town,
congregates on street corners aa l in pub-
lie places after nightfall, not only to oar
own detriment bat to that of other chil
dren, and to the annoyance nnd very
often the disguEt of pedestrians. The
fact w&s alio proven that the hoodlum
exercised considerable influence in caus
ing ordinarily. well-behaved children to
become unruly, and that through these
young corner-lcafers children of another
kind were often persuaded to be out at
night when otherwise thev tvoald be
content to remain at home. It has been
shown, too, that the curfew ordinance,
instead of taking any power away from
parents, is a distinct help to them, par
ticularly to these parents who failed,
lor some reason or other to exercise
proper supervision over their children.
To these parents the curfew law ccmes
as a distinct help. In fact, wherever
opposition has been t-hawn to the enrfew
ordinance its greater advantages have
been shown, understood and accepted.
Tho prcof of the puddiLg lies always
in the eating, and wherever the curfew-
ordinance has gone into efftc: its advan
tages have been conceded. This is true
now of over three hundred towns and
cities, some as large in populatiou as
Omaha and Topeka, In each case the
excellence of the law has become ap
parent, opposing parents have couceded
its wisdom, and even children are said to
be pleased with it. It has placed iti the
hands of the police a most effective
weapon for clearing the streets of hcod-
Iums at night, and in many cases whero
disorder reigned at street corners quiet
ness, law and order now prevail. Po
well has the ordinance worked that re
ports, gathered from net less than forty
of the towns where it is a law, show that
the line or imprisonment penalty has
not been inflicted in a single case. The
first caution has served the purpose.
These reports show, toa, that tho ordi
nance is not enforced in anv oppressive
manner. In the cate of evening winter
or summer entertainments, which would
keep the children out later tbau the cur
few hour, authority is easily obtained
and readily granted by the mayor or
town official for an extension of the
time. Its rigid enforcement is applied
most strictly to the hoodlum element,
and with this class the police rlMm they
have never been able to deal so success
fully. It will bo nt once obvious to nil right
minded parents, I think, that they
ehou!d give the weight of her influence
to the curfew ordinance wherever it may
be presented. It does not imply pater
nalism in any respect. On thecoLtrary,
the law is aimed to help tho parent in
carrying out his duties, and it does this
most effectually when, for some cause or
other, tho child gets bejoud home influ
ence. It is an allied force for tho pro
tection of all children. More than that
curfew ordinance aims most directly at
the hoodlum clement, which it is the
duty of every parent to aid in suppress'
iug in the town, village) or city in which
ho may live. This is tho special excel
lence cf tho ordinance, and it is this
phase of it of which tho parent should
not lo-e sight. It is well for his own
peace of mind, for tho protection of his
family, particularly if ho hits grown
daughters, and for Ihe ?afely of his prop
erty, that each citizen should assist in
enforcing a law which has for its main
object tho keeping of the streols at uight
free from any element calculated to
cause unrest or unlawful practices.
Taken from iny and every standpoint
the curfew ordinandi for children is an
excellont thinu', and it may wisely bo en
couraged by parents all over our land.

A PLEA FOR GOOD TIMES.
'Hard Times! Hard Times! Come
again no more!"
We all sing it, we all hope it, bnt do
we know what hard times are? We
sing it while wo eat beef steak at twenty
cedta a pound, oysters at fifty cents a
dozen, and three kinds of bread at the
same meal; we shout it while we smoke
cigars, two for a quarter; we tbink it
while we etretch oar comfortable legs on
Brussels carpet, before a blazing grate,
with well-groomed bo'3 and expensively
clad girls around us; we shout it to oar
neighbors across our smooth lawns, or
through our plate-glass windows; we
groan it as we lead our morning and
evening papers, our plentiful magazines
and our ccstly libraries; we dream of it
in our soft Epringy beds, while our ccal
fed furnace keeps the whole house
warm ; we maunder about it in our well
equipped offices, shout it through our
telephones, ring the changes cn it as
we send telegrams and take expensive
summer outings. We meet in our po
litical, social, literary and business con
ventions, and ring iho changes cn it
whiie we are spending' fortunes with
railroads, hotels, restaurants and places of
And yet, in these daja we do not
know what hard times are; we think we
do, but we do not.
The writer knows of a time within his
remembrance and he ia no patriarch,
when, in one of the richest parts of one
of the most favored states in the Union,
the whole town of some two thousand
inhabitants possessed altogether not
over $300 in money, all exchange was by
barter; there was no cash payment be
cause there was nothing to pay with.
Among the best and richest families
(and there were many who thought
themselves well-to-do) teefsteak was a
once-a-week visitor; round bsef was a
luxury; oysters were an unheard of
dainty; crra bread was the usual, wheat
the rare food ; the cheapest pipe tobacco
was a dissipation; cold bed-rooms,
scanty wood fires, woolsey and calico
were in the house; CxS window panes
were helped out by hals, old papers and
rags; a weekly paper was an extrava
gance, and served several families. Ten
books made a good, fair library; beds
were slatted or corded ; rag carpets were
occasional, iogratn scarce, and Brussels
a tradition; the sole vacation was a ride
to the annual picnic in tiie one horse
shay ; nobody had time, money or heart
for conventions or amusements. We
men worked from 5 a. in. to 7 p. m. (the
aristocrats shuiteLcd the tin.e by two
hours; and the women worked at all
' And yet it is doubtful if there was in
those times such a universal spirit of un-
rest and discontent, such a concert of
growling, as to day.
Is it fair? Are we just? Can we
afford time bewailing hard times, when
times are easy on us ; and treat us far
better than we deserve.
A manager once said with a chuckle :
"the mails have been good to our house
today; the first one brought an orde- in
every letter, and the last one brought a
remittance in every letter." We all
know 1 mayhap we are) persons who
would have said : "Alas, we have fallen
on evil times; the first mail brought no
money and the last mail brought no
Let us put aside these u;ly tempers cf
ours; look toward the sun ; smile at the
shadow ; all sunshine makes the desert ;
"it's a pretty world, eenor;" enjoy its
beauties, let us borrow no trouble, shed
light on our neighbors; quit us like men,
and times will Eeem (as they are) good.

out by Barnhart Bros. & Spindlcr, type

the circular was a price list of goods.
While most of the items mentioned iu
the list are a trifle cheaper than they
were 25 j ears ago, we notice that some
article remain the same. For instance,
a eet of Hempel Quoins, weighing
about a pound and costing not to ex

listed at the original selling price of

SUGAR BEETS IN CALIFORNIA.
An article in the North American lie
view, a summary of facts given by Mr.
E. Sowera in regard to the sugar beet in
dustry in California will be of interest:
"The yield of scgar beets varies frcm
twelve to forty tons per acic. The best
land, with good cultivation and a favor
able season, will yield from twenty to
thirty-five tons per acre, bu. the crop
would he hardlj profitable at a ieid of
less than twelve tons per acre. In Cali
fornia the greatest production from a
single acre of land was a little more than
forty tons of beets ; but this is an un
usual yield. The estimated cost ot pro
duction per acre 13 abont 59. In the
present condition of the methods ci
manufacture, from eight to twelve
pounds of beets are required in the
making of one pound of sugar; the
quantity varies according to the greater
or lesser richness of the beets in sugar.
Tho price changes with the conditions of
the markets. About four years ago beet
sugar from Germany was landed on the
wharves of New York at a cost of $3.81
per 100 pounds. It rarely costs now 5
cents a pound."
During the last six years such im
provements have been made in the pro,;
ress of manufacture that instead cf con
verting from 4 to 5 per cent of the beet
into sugar, 12 to 10 per cent are con
verted now, and the cost of production
per pound which was once from S to 12
cents, is now only 2 to 4. The average
cost here in 1S03 was 3 cents, and 24,000
acres were used for growing sugar beets,
which brought to the firmer an average
price of f4 50 a ton. An acre produced
3661 to 4G20 pounds of sngar. In that
year there were seven factories in tho
country, with a capital of about 1,000,
