TOO MUCH SPEED
IN 1912 the great White Star liner "Titanic" collided with an
iceberg in the Atlantic and carried 1517 persons down with
her. Investigation revealed that the operators and naviga
tors had ignored the laws of caution for the demands of speed.
Last weekend the steamship "Alaska" sank in the "grave
yard of the phips" of the coast of California with a probable loss
of a half hundred lives. From facts now at hand it looks like
nother plain case of taking a chance for the sake of speed.

Would have been hesitant about classifying the misadventure as

RAINY DAY PASTIMES
It) Mabel It. Yiuii(r
A rainy day In the kindergarten is kinds of articles are placed by him In
REPORT has it that a certain lady, desiring to make a
first payment on a piece of property acquired, went to the
bank, opened her safety deposit JSox and secured several
hundred dollars from hoardings amounting to several thou
sands. ' It was her own money and she had a perfect right to bury
it in a safety deposit vault or, for that matter, in a hole in the
ground or in the trunk of a hollow tree. She would doubtless be
surprised if told that the withdrawal of her money from the
banks and, therefore, from general circulation was working a
real injury to her community and her neighbors. She was;
nevertheless, doing that very thing.
Perhaps we can best explain what we mean by repea'ng a
eiory of a certain $5000 which was put into circulation and then
i A few years ago a miser died in a certain town, which may
be called Grarjiteville. The executor of his estate found $5000
in gold stored away in the house, and deposited it with the bank,
thereby increasing the deposits of that bank by $5000. Shortly
after John Smith borrowed of the bank $4500 of the amount de
posited in order to buy stone with which to build a block of
buildings. The local granite company, having outside income
sufficient to pay iti operating expenses, deposited the entire
if 4500 received from Smith with the bank; so the deposit of the
bank became $9500 greater. Soon after, Jones came into the
bank and borrowed $4200 with which to buy stone to build a
block in another part of the town, and upon receipt of Jones'
$4200 the granite company made another deposit with the bank,
increasing the deposit to $13,700.
The followlne dav a Mr. Brown by means of a loan from the
bank, bought stone, and the granite company further increased
its deposit-- to S' 17,500. This same method of procedure was
continued until the $5000 in gold which was originaiiy deposit
ed. resulted in increasing the deposits of the bank by $50,000
and the loans by $45,000. Moreover, this $5000 enabled the
granite company to suppose it had $45,000 in cash on deposit in
the bank and provided for the building of several stone blocks
in the city. In other words, the deposit of this $5000 in gold
resulted in creating an apparent wealth in Graniteville of about
$ When the miser's estate was settled, this $5000 was turned
over to his only daughter who had the same hoarding disposi
tion as her father. She immediately withdrew in gold the $5000
from the bank and placed the same in a safe deposit box with
the following result The bank in order to show its proper
"reserve" was obliged to demand payment of all loans made to
Smith, Jones, Brown and the other men. In order to pay these
lours nil of these inen were obliged to sell the building which
they had erected and in order lo protect the" price of granite, the
j i an i t ompany was obliged to purchase these buildings, which
necessitated the withdrawal of their deposits from the bank.
Thus the withdrawal of this $5000 in gold resulted in a $50,000'
decrease in the deposiU of the bank, caused the $45,000 cash as-'
ts of the granite company to vanish, and caused half a dozen!

Why should a rainy .ay at home be

gestions for making the next one a

book for crayon drawing, one for free--utting
pictures, and another for crip-
pings from magazines, papers and
seed catalogues. Provide a pan or
basket for the snips. This occupation
will keep the children amused for an
Itonr or more, at the same time devel-
ping accuracy and originality.
Another period can be happily
spent making potato animals. Burn
ed matches fasten heads and bodies
together and make splendid legs, ele
phant trunks and necks for giraffes.
A potato circus in full parade is a
sight to make even the crossest
grown-up smile in spite of himself. If
potatoes cannot be iised. small animal
crackers from the giocery store make
good substitute. With the help of
buiiding blocks, the children can
make a farm and barnyard, and the
animals and blocks will provide a play
Save all the clean burned matches,
lollypop sticks and meat skewers in

source of amusement, the stick pic
tures that can be made! Houses and
barns, fences and ladders, beds,
chairs and tables can be formed by
the little hands. Even a park can be
laid out. with trees, benches and
flowerbeds; or a camp with rows of
tents and soldiers marching in line.
There are many games adaptable
for indoors. Ball, tenpins and bean
bags are always good. '
Stories and nursery rhymes can be
dramatized and sense games played,
for instance, the "Bell-ringer," In
which one child, blindfolder, tries to
catch anoth'er, who rings a bell as he
moves about. AnoUier good game is
the "'Mystery Man," who can be im
personated by one of the children. All
the hands of the "blind-man." who
must guess what they are. Then the
play of tasting and smelling makes the
time pass profitably and pleasantly.
With a lew helpful suggestions,
children can work out and adapt for
themselves all of these games and
spend the hours indoors happily busy,
while a favorite story retold by the
mother gives a perfect ending to a Joy
ous rainy duy.
Tlic Moral Iiiriin-m-c of Klndcr'-iirtcn
Recently Judtfe Alfred J. Talle of
New York expressed the opinion that
corporal punishment at home and in
school would keep many young men
out of prison.
No form -of punishment can of It
sell dcvtloithe moral nature. Wrong
feeling and action must be checked,
but instead of developing right mo
tives, punishment merely stope action.
If all of the young men who ore in our
prisons could have received the early
training in truthfulness, honesty, pa
triotism, and right habits of thought
and conduct which the kindergarten
provides, they would now be happy.
