A door key ia en inconsistent if
sot an altogether eenscleea affair.
It may bo all right in iteelf, but it
ts often used to lock doors, snd a
locked door is a very foolish thing.
Somo doors, you nisy remark, Iocs
themselves, snd s door key is neces
sary to unlock them. That might
be a reasonable excuse for the ex
istence of the key, but such a key,
if it is not lost or on the wrong aide
>( the door, frequently gets stuck
snd refuses to open the door. If
there were no door key# there would
in all probability be no locked doors,
and that would bo a very enjoysbls
•tate of society.
With the door locked end the key
inside, it is difficult for anybody
except a burglar to get inside, and
of course a burglar is the only per
son we want to seep out. Burglar#
can get in just aa easily with the
door locked as with it unlocked, but
thq rest of us are not so clever.
You know yourself how it is. You
have carried ladders snd climbed
into upstair# windows or Lave drop
ped through basement windows into
the coal bin or have tried to go
through transoms snd been rescued
by neighbor# from an embarrassing
if not a dangerous position. Every
body knows all about getting into e
house without a key.
Sometimes you cannot get in at
all. One morning a woman follow
ed her husband to the front steps,
and tho door slammed and the night
lock was on and the key was ineide,
and her husband had caught the
car. She was canning pcara end

They were still cooking and would
soon ^bo burning. Tha baby was
crying for his breakfast. She could
not get in. None of the neighbors
could get in. Somebody telephon
ed to her huaband, and perhaps it
was not more than an hour before
he got home with his key. Am
hour ia a long time, and tha pear*
and tbs baby were in a terrible
state. It would have been better
if there had been a burglar in the
house. He could have turned out
tho gas and have fod tbs baby, end
ho might have opened the door. A
good old fashioned latchstring, al
ways out, would reliave ua of so
much responsibility and would be
so much safer.— Indianapolis Neve.

Sample Ballot, City of Falls City, Oregon, April 6,1914
M. W. A.
A lecture by that brilliant crafts
man and poet William Morris was
not always a season of rare enjoy
ment. Sometimes, according to Mor
ris’ biographer, Mr. Conipton-Rick-
ett, his lectures were dull, as on one
particular occasion when he turned
to one of the women in his audi
ence and asked her how she liked
“ Not at all,” was the unexpected
reply. “ But I thought the color of For
your blue shirt charming.”
Morris was delighted, for he had
taken great pains to find the right
dye. His love of color, particularly
indigo blue, was as keen as his de 300
