In these days, when two of the
worst train wrecks In the country's
history have within one week shock
ed all who read the sickening details
of the sacrifice of human life, resi
dents along the line of the Brio may
take comfort in the knowledge that
not a passenger has been killed on
an Erie train in ten years. Luck, of
course. Is an element, but the real
cause of the Erie's success In avoid
ing fatal train wrecks Is found in
the fact that it has not succumbed to
the "speed madness" of many other
lines where safety Is daily sacrificed
to fast time. Goshen Independent

Chicago. Speaking on tho sub
ject of " School Architecture," before
the Xatlonal Educational Association,
William B. Ittner, architect for tho
St. Louis Board of Education, In tho
recent educational convention, laid
emphasis on the desirable features
of school buildings. He said:
Investigations of the conditions
of school buildings have brought
substantial results. Legislation,
however, has been more in the di
rection of means of escapo from fire,
rather than in safe buildings and
permanent Improvements looking to
llro prevention. While buildings
should be erected fireproof whenever
funds will permit, tho safety of our
buildings depends quite as much
upon the location of its stairways,
corridors, the exits, the disposition
of the rooms, their height, and the
site upon which it is located.
While conditions vary In differ
ent communities, authorities agree
that tho minimum allowable area
for a site, after deducting tho area of
building, plant and other restrict
ed areas, should bo olghty or forty
square feet per pupil. One hun
drd and fifty square feet per pupil
may be taken as a working standard
In cities, while ten and twolvo acre
sites may be considered Ideal In sub
urban districts.
"Tho building should be low.
This, of course, Is not possible In
largo cities, but we will addross our
remarks to general practice and not
to special problems. Special pre
caution should be taken against llro.
This Includes tho isolation of tho
basement, tho proper construction
and location of stairways, which
should be enclosed In incombustible
material, tho avoidance of hollow
spaces In walls and ceilings, and a
due consideration of size and loca
tion of corridors, and grouping or
rooms. Due care must bo given to
lighting, ventilation, and provision
made for tho rapid circulation of
pupils from lloor to floor.
"In planning High schools, tho
size of tho class rooms cannot bo
standardized as they must vary to
meet tne requirements. Sneclal con
sideration should be given to special
rooms, as laboratories, commercial
rooms, manual training, domestic
science, gymnasium, library, rest
rooms, offices, lockers, and lunch
" In conclusion, wo find our school
buildings, then, becoming 111 oro and
more a factor In tho affairs of tho
community, nnd it Is Important that
they should be planned with sticu
care as will render them not oH'
safe and sanitary, but that they
should also be given an exterior
treatment which will reflect tho re
finement nnd good taste their Im
portance demands."

Washington, U. C. Senator Till
man, of South Carolina, Is Impatient
over tho race for naval supremacy
and wants the United States to say
the last word In naval construction
by building the biggest ship tho
world has over seen or over will seo,
to cost $25,000,000 If necessary, and
to foe named The Terror. This ship
is to be the world's peacemaker and
to frighten all the other nations in
to submission. If that does not
work he would have the United
States Join with two other leading
nations and agree not to arm furth
er; and then force other nations to
do likewise or drive them out of
good society."
In a resolution Introduced In the
senate Mr. Tillman directed the com
mittee on naval affairs of the sen
ate, of which ho has been a mem
ber for eighteen years, to investi
gate and report to the senate what
is the biggest ship that can be built
with tho maximum speed and the
maximum desirable radius of action,
and the heaviest armor and guns
that can navigate the sea and en
ter the first-class harbors of the
world and existing drydocks as well
as pass through the Panama canal.
This Baby Chick Unci Tho Heads.
A baby chick with two heads Is
an unusual freak.
A chick of this nature, a black
minorca, was hatched by a hen set
ting from a setting of eggs that Mrs.
Amelia Kaiser, Atco, Wayne county,
put under her. The chick was hatch
ed a week ago and when Mss. Kaiser
reached under the mother hen to
take out the chicks she was astonish
ed at the freakish little bundle of
fluff that wiggled two heads on one
body and peeped as lustily as the rest
of the hatch. Except for the extra
head there wasn't a flaw In the
chick. Tho eyes, bill and rest of the
head was perfectly formed. The
second head shot off from the left
wing near tho neck and was, if
anything a little smaller than the
other head. The chick hopped
around and even started to peck with
both heads. Mrs. Kaiser kept It for
several days and It grow In strength,
but she didn't like the canny sight
that It presented so she had It
strangled. The chick, after being
killed, was placed In a bottle of al
cohol to preserve it. The freak will
probably be given to the Everhart
museum at Scranton.

Rev. Dr. Relsner of Graco Motho
dlst Episcopal church, Xow York, re
cently sent n letter to a number of
business men asking them sorao
questions, based 011 tho alleged state
ment of Rev. R. J. Compbcll of Lou
don, that a business man cannot bo
absolutely honest and succeed.
A great many honorable men, so
Dr. 'Relsner says, claim that an ab
solutely upright Standard of hon
esty is impossible for tho man who
is determined to succeed in busi
ness. The following are the questions
that ho asked of the merchants:
1. Is It possible to succeed In
business and bo absolutely honest?
2. Why do dishonest men fall to
reach fullest success?
3. Why do so many salesmen re
sort to sharp practices to make
4. Is It over excusablo to mlsrep
orsent or exaggerate goods either In
quality or popularity of demand?
Here are four very good answers
to thoso questions sent to Dr. Rels
ner by Mr. Murphy, president of the
Mark Cross company:
1. Yes and If done any other
way the man does not get the full
measure of success.
2. Because the most difficult
thing In the world Is to lie dishon
estly for any length of time.
3. Sharp practice Is their trag
edy that Is why there aro so many
bad salesmen.
4. There is no excuse for such a
blunder. Retribution follows hard
on the heels of misrepresentation.
Advertising may be fraudulent or it
may be profitable, but It cannot be
both. There is no fool so great as
the fool who thinks ho Is fooling
everybody. First he labors hard to
gain a dishonest reputation, and af
terward ho labors to undo It. Like
Frankenstein, who released the genii
from tho bottle only to find he could
not control him.
Another paper was read at the
Sunday night service, December 3,
which made the point that tho man
who practices dishonestly in his
business has to be a great deal
smarter man than the man who
practices honesty that he has great
er difficulty in attaining partial suc
cess than tho man who Is Inherently
honest has In attaining a great suc
cess. Is it not true that the businesses
that prosper most in our communi
ties are those whose owners are men
of character who stand for some
thing in the world?
There Is no doubt that honesty In
business pays best In the long run,
and the honest advertiser has a bet
ter chance to succeed than the dis
honest advertiser.
Jonathan H. Cole, of South Plain
field, X. J., celebrated his eighty
ninth birthday with unusual glee,
because, he informed his friends, he
is cutting new teeth. Twenty years
ago he procured a set of raise teeth
and had no trouble until three weeks
ago, when he suffered severe pains.
A dentist removed tho false teeth
three days ago and discovered that
the pain was due to tho cutting of
full sets of lower and upper teeth.
