162 of the 174 boys desired to stay |
on the farm and 161 of the 178 girls. |
This changing of an almost unani- |
mous desire to stay on the farm |
seems almost miraculous. Yet it was |
done through making a change in the |
course of study, writes W. C. Palmer !
in the Breeders’ Gazette.
Boys and girls will desire to do the
things they have been taught how to
do. Their interest is developed in the
things they are taught.- Agriculture
and home economics are the things
that boys and girls are most interest-
ed in to begin with. They live in a |
great agriculture and home economics |
The knowledge that they have when
they come to school is on' these sub-
jects. Education to be the most effec-
tive must begin with what the chil
iren know.
The will to do springs from the |
knowledge that one can do: One |
likes to do what one can do well. Do- |
ing work that one does not under- |
stand is drudgery. Most boys must |
enter productive work. If they are |
not educated for it then it will be |
irudgery. Most girls will manage |
homes. If they are not taught about |
it homemaking would be a drudgery. |
It is in the power of the schools to
make th ir enthusiastic workers or
drudges of the boys and girls.
Sudden Ascent to High Altitudes, and
as Sucden Descent, Frequently
Brings on Sickness.
M. Berget, a French aeronaut, aft-
er speaking of the conditions of the
atmosphere in general, brings out
some points on aviator’s sickness.
Aeroplanes sometimes reach altitudes
of ten thousand feet in an hour, and
here the effects on the ear such as
humming or cracking noise are about
the same as in a balloon, but the ef-
fect on the respiratory organs is dif-
ferent. The pilot is sooner out of
breath and he feels a special kind of
uneasiness. During the descent, the
heart beats are of greater amplitude,
but without accelerating. A quicker
descent in a sailing flight at a speed
of 1,000 or 1,200 feet a minute or
even more, causes a feeling of a spe-
cial kind, or uneasiness, accompanied
with humming in the ears. Burning
in the face is also felt and a severe
headache, also the great tendency to
sleep which has been before observed.
The movements of the body are slug-
gish and unskillful. These symptoms
continue for some time after the land-
ing, and the tension in the arteries is
noticed to be higher than the normal.
Hello Nation.
Hello! We are the greatest tele-
phone users in the world. The daily
average of talks over the telephone
last year was over 26,000,000. There
are 70,000 places, towns, cities and
hamlets from which telephone mes-
sages may be sent, says Leslie’s Week-
ly. This is 5,000 more than the num-
ber of our post offices, 10,000 more
than the number of our railroad sta-
tions and three times the number of
telegraph offices in the country. There
are nearly 7,500,000 telephone stations
in the Bell system—an increase last
year of over 800,000. These are the
facts reported by the American Tele-
graph & Telephone company in refer-
ence to the Bell business. It earned
last year nearly $43,000,000. Will it be
believed that the majority of = its
shares are owned by women and less
than seven per cent. by brokers?
Progress of Cremation.
No. 26 of the “Transactions” of the
Cremation Society of England, which
has just been published, states tha’’
there were 1,134 cremations in Grea
Britain in 1912, compared with 1,023 i1
1911. A list is given of the well
known persons who were cremated
during the year, including the Bishop
of Truro and Rev. Charles Voysey.
There are 13 crematories in this coun-
try, of which five are municipal. Sum.
maries are given of the progress of
cremation abroad. Some “Short Rea
sons for Cremation” are appended, in
which the plea is advanced that it “re
moves the possibility of being buried
alive.”—Dundee Advertiser.
Did He Get It?
“Won't you tell a nice little story
for the lady?” asked a fond mother of
her four-year-old boy whom she was
showing off to her guest.
“I don’t know a ’tory,” lisped the
youngster, bashfully.
“Oh, yes, you do,” pleaded his moth.
er. “Just a little story.”
“Will' you div’ me a kiss?’ The
boy’s eyes brightened.
