when the city's nine CouAciliuvn, during

by the Bev. J. T. McMullens at the

Preceding tho ceremony Mr. Gossard

MIGHT BOX WIFE'S EARS •
Justified Under Some Circumstances,
Baltimore, Dec. a.—A man is justi
fied in boxing his wife's ears when she
pays more attention to her clothes than
i she does to her children, ruled Justice
I Smith in the Police Court here. Frank
J Cohen was arrested on a warrant sworn
j out by his wife, who complained that
he came home the other night and,
while she Was peacefully reclining on a
lonuge, boxed her ears. *
Cohen told of the taste of his better
half or stylish clothes, of his efforts
to buy her as many new gowns as he
could afford and of her inclination for
amusements. When he went home the
night the trouble occurred, he said, he
found his two small children neglected
on the street and his wife gone. While
he was out looking for her she returned.
It was then, he almitted, that he

Toledo, Dec. s.—The style commit
tee of the National Cloak, Suit and
Skirt Manufacturers' Association will
decree to-day that the tight skirt must
i give way to fullness below the waist
line. The association so decided yes
terday afternoon at the first day's aps

The coats and skirts are to be short

tailor-made season in' 1915 for Amer

In working out the styles the idea is
to have more sense in the fashions.

SHOT BY HIGHWAYMEN
Robert Voy, Honesdale Trackwalker,
Owes liife to Postal Receipts
Honeslale, Pa., Dec. 5.—A roll of
po>tal savings receipt', amounting to
*l2O in value, probably saved thy life
of Robert Voy, aged 56, an Brie track
va'ker, when he was held up by ina>Ued
highwaymen in his shanty .abut; tlie
main line near Stockport." One buUet
tired by the robbers entered his right

staggered two miles to ihe station and
was taken to the Susquehanna hos

which reached the Philadelphia Navy
Yard on Thursday night, has been ta

INAUGURATE NEW LINE OF
WORK TO BELP FARMER
Weather Bureau. Taking Up Special
•tody. Which Will Be a Benefit to
the Agriculturalist as Well as the
Washington, "D. C., D*c. s.—Several
now lines .of work for the benefit of the
publie, anil especially of the farmers,
according to the annual report of the
Weather Bureau were inaugurated dur
ing the year. Others recently begun
have been extended into portions oif th«
country where the growing important'*
of agricultural pursuits have madt
them of increased value.
A special service given to orchard
ists and raisers of tdbacco, oranges,
cranberries and certain other crops
has been rendered by means of frost
warnings issued in spring and autumn.
Close attention is paid by the fore
casters to the needs of these crops at
critical periods, and the growers are
kept fulllv advisA.l as to the dangers
of frost and are warned of the neces
sity of resorting to measures oi pro
tection through artificial heating and
smudging, or flooding the bogs in the
case of cranberries.
The establishment of a "'Cattle Re
gion Service," through which bulletins
■containing statements of weather con
ditions over the stock ranges of the
Texas panhandle and adjacent regions
are issued, constitutes a new fcaturo
of the bureau's work. This has been
particularly effective as affecting the
cattle industry of the great Southwest,
having proved of such material value
as to create a demand for its continu
ance throughout the entire year, in
stead of from April to October as at
Another opportunity for service has
been found in the timbered regions of
j the west during periods of unusual
i drivight. This has been taken advan
j tage of through the issue of special
| forecasts of hot dry winds, which are
: disseminated directly to the officials of
j the fire patrol of the Forest Service
and other similar organizations, placing
l them on their guard* at times of un
usual danger of fire inception. A fea
ture of considerable moment to scien
tists ami students of meteorology' was
the daily issue of a weather map for
j the entire Northern hemisphere, begun
j by the bureau last January
j natefly, the issue of this map was ne
cessarily suspended at the outbreak of
the present European war.
A special investigation of orchard
conditions in western North Carolina,
where systematic observations are be-
I ing carried on in a number of orchards
. by the Weather Bureau in co-operation
[ with the State Experiment Station,
I promises to give valuable results.
These studies have in view the estab
i lishment of the influence of topography
on local climate, the ultimate object
| heing to differentiate the safe and un
safe locations for orchards in such re
Explorations of the upper air and
j studies of solar radiation were con-
I tinued bv the bureau during the year.
; No small light has been thrown upon
I obscure features of weather control
through the information already ob
tained of conditions prevailing in the
i upper atmosphere, an-1 continued in
j vestigations ar e expected to disclose ad
ditional valuable facts. Active field
! work of this character was transferred
| during the year from Mount Weather,
j a., to Port Omaha, Neb., where more
i favorable conditions for atmospheric

money, but write her today if your chil- 1

Thcwo and otiher facte are

Compulsory attendance upon school,
brtbween the a,ges of 7 and 14, is no
i strictly enforced in Denmark that "the
i few Who persist in avoiding their leg.il
rwpansi b i lit ies are punished so se
verely that they are gifeul enough to

According to Mr. Foght the Danish
schools are MII eix tfcavs in the week,
giving at least 2 4fi sdhootl days to tlie

"must be able to instruct in music

the reading process. Ormnmv is like
wise taught largely through "doing,"
as Mr. Foght expressed it. "Dicta
tion is given from some classic; this
is then analyzed and rules of grammar
are. applied as needed." The Bible is
atrongtv emphasized in ail the schools.

Mr. Foght '"lays that the secwt of i
Denmark's high place iu education a?
affairs lies in the hold which the teac.li- !
I er lias upon the entire people. Every j
teacher is a professional teacher. The
i saiku-ies are among the highest given
to 'amy class of workers. Teachers'
houses with valuable piece* otf l«uid
attached, are furnished in a.hlition to
the already liberal salaries. Teaching;
is, frotm every standpoint, made hon
orable in Denmark. The teacher has i
hiih social ranking, is a leader in both I
j church and State, anil is invariably
| pensioned for disability or age.
| Teachers so thoroughly furnish and
i working under such happy conditions
very naturally exemplify a higher or
der of teaching. Mr. Pog'bt says: "The
Danish teacher draws upon their
, broad, general reading and experience
for much o>f the ola»* room materials,
instead of depending upon textbooks l
to furnish everything required."

DISAGKEEABI.ENESS OF DUTY.

W» Know Our Duty.
Wasn't it .Samanthn who said, "I al
ius know my duty 'cnuse I hate It so?"
I guoss she was right. We # know our
duty by our frank Instinctive antipathy
to It. In all the bright lexleou of
youth I always found "duty" the hard
est word to prononuce. But thank
goodness for the heroic streak In us
that makes us do our duty, pleasant
or unpleasant. We are not Jellyfish, If
we do sometimes seem without verte
brae. Duty is a tonic for our sickly
souls. It alters the perspective ,of our
view. We ought to do It-therefore It
Is right. When there are carrots on
the parsonage table my boy Bob eats
them first, not because he likes them,
but because be feels he must Bravo,
Bob! His mother that day secretly

Unavoidable*** of Duty.
Folks there are who slip away from
duty by denying it. Quite a sugges
tion. The best way to overcome a
truth is to Ignore It. I have dona
tt myself. When duty was pricking
me sore I have shaken my head
doggedly. "'Taln't my place to do
that!" Ananias! No, rather grand
child of Jonah! No one can run away
from duty, because conscience goes
with him. Javert never hung closer
to Vnljean. Most of us are skilled In
dressing up our excuses for escaping
duty. We shift the burden on to our
neighbor, our destiny, heredity, en
vironment, temperament, the devil or
even God himself. But It Is useless.
The ostrich has nice feathers, but It
Isn't noted for wisdom. What artless
folks the priest and Invite who "pass
ed by on the other side" were. I think
frequently we make our own difficul
ties. After all the Important question
is not what the duty is or how it came,
but what we think about that duty
that makes us afraid of It. A recent
book on dogs says: "Don't be afraid
of dogs. • Don't run—they'll snip you.
Walk toward them confidently. Smile.
He'll wag his tall, which Is a dog's
way of saying, 'Pardon me, I was mis
taken.'" I've some duties and some

"Brother, It's My Duty."
Duties sometime!) conflict. A son
lives with his wife and his mother.
The debt he owes to the woman who
bore him and cared for him for thrice
seven years, and the woman for whom
he has vowed to forsake all others—
what shall he do? A lad was to l>e
shot for sleeping on picket duty. His
little sister came down from Vermont
to plead for the boy. Great generals
said his death was necessary for the
discipline and safety of the Union
army. What was Lincoln's duty—sign
the death warrant or the reprieve?
One's honor or the duty of silence un
der provocation? In the dull drab
monotony of everyday life what we
want to do or ought to do? How about
mistaken duties? Live with a bod hus
band or hunt up n divorce lawyer?
Have you any of those dear brethren
who "think It their duty to tell you
what folks say about you?" I wish
they would think it a duty to repeat
pleasant things now and then. I know
those zealous, misguided folks will get
to heaven, but I do hope my mausion
Isn't next door to theirs.
Tha Bluebird of Happiness.
The secret of happiness is duty done.
That's why some of us short 011
hapfrtness and long on the things we
ought to have done. Truth must be
presented whether clad in calico or
purple. 1 suppose duty Is dressed most
ly In drab and homespun. This must
be said, "As blessings become brighter
when we are about to lose them, duty
dwindles as we bravely attack it."
Where love actuates the thing Is no
longer duty. If a son came back from
the city once a year to visit his mother,
and said. "I've come to visit you.
mother, because I feel it my duty."
she would reply, "Better not come at
all." If a young fellow said to his
best girl, "I'm kissing yon tonight be
cause it Is my duty," she would flash
back, "I've another fellow who kisses
me because he likes to." Do you get
that? The moment we like to do a
thing It is no longer a duty—it's a
pleasure. Try to like the task, smile
at It. notice it smile back Emerson
said, "If there's anything you espe
lially shrink from doing, do it." There's
a soul satisfaction in duty well done.
It exalts us—lt helps others. When
It Is done It gives you back more than
you put in it Hare investment The
good book says. "Hear the conclusion
of the whole matter: Pear God and
keep his commandments; this la th*
whole duty of man."
