SDVCdTS YOUR CHILD EES
The public school year begins
October 1st, and it is importuut
tbat parent should see to it that
their children have the full benefit
of our free ,school"sy stem. There is
no reason why any child from six
to twelve years of age and in good
health should be kept away from
the school room. Because people
are poor is no reuson why they
should not send their children to
school. Indeed, in such cases it is
all the more important that the
child should have the benefit
of a common school education.
Some parents hesitate to send their
children to chool because they can
not clothe them as neatly as their
well-to-do neighbors do their child
ren. Such vanity U worse than
Jolly, it is a crime against the future
welfare of their children. If child
ren are clothed sufficiently decent
to appear in public upon thestreets
there is no excuse on tbat score for
their not appearing in the school
room. Pride is a commendable
characteristic in anyone, but vani
ty is quite arother thiug and is
evidence of weakness rather than
strength. Every winter there ar
children running the streets who
ehould be in school, and it is the
duty of our school board to see that
the state law in this particular is
enforced. It is better for the state
to pay for the education of its future
useful citizens than to maintain at
the public expense an army, of
criminals. Ignorance is not only a
nursery of crime, but i also in
capacitates men and women for the
active duties of life.
This is an age in which a certain
degree of education is essential to
business and social success. The
uneducated manor woman is handi
capped at every turn in life by
persons who have had the special
training which society demands of
jts members. The time has passtd,
indeed, if it ever existed, when the
illiterate can hope to successfully
Compete with the educated. "Edu
cation," said Francis Bacon, "make6
. the ( complete man." That is to
say, it rounds out, developed and
disciplines his natmal capabilities
and makes him capable of carrying
forward the great work ot the world.
The common schools not only train
the purely intellectual faculties,
but they develop the moral char
acter of the individual. If the
function of education stopped with
mathematics, literature and physi
cal science its work would only be
half completed, for the proper train
ing of man's moral character is
really 'more important than the
.cultivation of his purely intellectu
fil faculties. It is because the com
mon schools touch, quiekon.and de
velop the whole Individual being
of the child that their work has be
come an integral part of civiliza
tion. Th" importance of a common
6chool education is so generally
recognized that it is not necessary
to make an argument in its favor,
and this article is written only for
the purpose of calling local atten
tion to the importance of encourag
ing every child in this community
' to attend the public school during
the current school year.
The Oregonian of the 22nd inst.
has a timely editorial on the filthy
and nauseating habit so common
nmong men of expectorating upon
the sidewalks. The article is so
good that we dislike mutilating it
by quoting an isolated excerpt
therefrom, but our limited space
will not permit a more extended

The opinion is freely expressed,
however, that the town council cf
Chico has undertaken a reform
that it cannot carry on, from the
fact that a supervision of a man's
bringing-up is necessary in order
to compass the end desired. It
may be broadly stated that no man
who has a true appreciation of the
rights and feelings of others, will
nollute the street with the secre
tions of his saiivary glands, unduly
stimulated by tobacco or by the ex
ubations of his catarrh. That
thousands of men do these repre
hensible and disgusting things the
defiled pavements of every town
and city in the country dulv at
tests. The fault is manifestly in
th bringing-up of such people
e 1 ...
and to reconstruct them by ordi -
nance is at best a doubtful exp-n-
The frightful epidemic of crime,
which is the daily bill of fare in
the current newspaper press, is
enough to convert the most pro
nounced optimist into a dyspeptic
pessimist. The social fountain is
evidently polluted with a terrible
disease when crime walks red-handt-d
in every community, and
even the sanctity ot the marriage
relation ceases to be a barrier to
murder. Men and women take
upon themselves the relationship
of husband and wife who are unfit
physically, mentally and morally
to bring offspring into the world,
and the legitimate fruit of their ill
fated mateship is a spawn of crim
inals and imbecils to fill the
prisons and asylums of civilized
countries. It is the province of the
state to protect society, but statu
tory law as it is now enacted, de
fined and enforced is wholly mi
notent to check the alarmine crim
inality going on among the morally
insane and degraded classes.
Thk biggest liar on earth visited

It was a bright Saturday morn

bracing sea air makes the red blood
leap through one's veins and nerves

Taylor gathered up his fishing
tackle and promised the folks at
camp a long string of "speckled
beauties" for dinner, started up the
creek. Our amateur disciple of old
