in Museum for 60 Years
London, August 12.—Much interest has been aroused by tbe
statement of Lord Esher, in tbe preface of his work entitled '-The
Tragedy of Lord Kitchener," of his
present intention to seal up his
diaries and correspondence and
leave them in tbe British Museum
to be made public only sixty years
hence. Esher's decision is stated
to be due to his desire "not to be

of tbe pjiblic for bis lordship's rec

In cranking a motor wbich he bad

Ways for Girls on
Farm to Make Money
When a city girl feels the need of
money—her own money, to pay for
tbe things girls imagine they must
have tbese days—she goes to Work
in an office, a store, or a factory,
according to ber education and opportunity. In tbe country a girl,
with much the same longing for
niee things and "good times," looks
to the poultry yard, tbe m'lk bouse
or the garden for her spending
money. If ber parents are tbe right
kind, if they are intelligent enough
to belp her and encourage her in
her work, Bhe will soon establish
herself as a semi-independent member of tbe family. If, as often happens, the parents ars not disposed to
bave sucb goings-on, and there is no
home-demonstration agent, no girls'
club, no extension work of any kind
in tbe community, the country girl
goes to the city and the farming regions have lost one more potential
home and family.

Washington, August 9.—A high"
temperature   wave ^will cover  the
northern  plains,   northern   Rockies
and northern Pacific slope near August 1, and a moderate stofm will be
pushing from behind it.  These conditions will cross meridian 90, moving northeastward, about one .day
later, and will reach Atlantic coast
section August 4 or 5.    Not much
rain  from  this disturbance; storms
will  be weak and of   little importance; good corn weather  wbere the
soil   is   wet, and.bad   wbere it haa
been dry;  lazy,  sluggish   weather.
Tbe   rain   tbat   comes   from tbat

This storm will end  the monthly
moisture locations and better rains
are expected for August in the middle   southwest,   including western
Texas,   New   Mexico, Arizona and
Texas.    July and August rains are
always important to that large section. But severe storms are not   expected in August and they are necessary to good rains.

During a four days' stay in Spokano this
week, The Sun man could not help but notice
the wonderful strides Toward perfection that
city has made during the past fifteen years. The
city illustrates what can be accomplished when
}he citizens of a community pull in the same
direction. Spokane is one of the cleanest
cities on the continent, and for its size it ha s
more handsome business and public buildings
and palatial hotels than any other city that we
can name offhand.
The predominating trait of Spokane is that
it ie a friendly city. There is none of the offensive austerity which prevails to an abnormal degree in some metropolitan centers. Because a man happens to come from a country
town the people of Spokane do not regard
him as necessarily being a hayseed—although
at the present stage of our oivilization it is no
disgrace to be called a hayseed. This is prob
ably because a large percentage of the popula
tion of the city today have seen it grow from
a country towu to the metropolis of an inlaud
Spokane has some peculiarities. She has
about as many automobiles as Grand Forks,
but her horse population falls below par when
compared with this city. In four days we saw
only one team, and that appeared ,to mis-
There are many lady dentists in Spokane.
It is said that it is absolutely painless when
a pretty female dentist pulls a tooth. We have
no means of verifying this statement—but
that is what we have been told.
We have often wondered why talegiaph,
telephone and light poles could not be made
ornamental as well as useful. We were rather
disappointed to find that Spokane had not set
a good example to the rest of the world in this
respect. The poles in that city are ofthe
same variety as in Grand Forks and other
The assertion is frequently made that prohibition does prohibit. Perhaps not—if prohibition laws are not enforced. But the bone-
dry law in the States has abolished drunken
ness. Neither on the train, at the stations
or in the city of Spokane did we see an intoxicated person. It was the first journey we
have ever made where these conditions prevailed.
Auother healthy innovation that has been
made since we used to swing around the circle is-the banishment of the common drinking
cup from trains, hotels and drinking fountains.
This example could be copied in some of the
towns on this side of the line with considerable profit.

The views of eminent scholars on matters of
great human interest are always worth listen
ing to, though it must be remembered that
they are often brilliant hypotheses rather than
conclusions that have been subjected to absolute truth. Sir Arbuthnot Lane, a famous
British surgeon, has been expressing some
striking ideas on the effect of educatiou on the
brain. He conceives of education as being
something like a physical force applied to the
brain and believes that its effect on the brain
cells is not unlike the effect that particular
kinds of physical exercise or labor produce-on
the muscles or bones. The vigorous growth of
a special sense, according to that view, may
readily produce something Uke a mental de
formity. Profound knowledge in a single de
partment may mean the loss of what we call
common sense—"the capacity to arrive at con
elusions the truth of which would appeal to a
number of people in a variety of occupations."
The truth of the observation seems to him to
be shown by the "impracticality" that clergymen, scientific students and classical scholars
often show. Speaking of heredity, Sir Arbuthnot Lane declares that fathers transmit their
tendencies to daughters and mothers to sons,
He that in deciding how to train a boy's brain
most advantageously the traits of the mother
and of her father should be carefully studied,
Tiie fnther's tendencies, he declares, are of
comparatively little importance in training the
Admiral Sims is universally popular in England—a fact which seems to prevent his being
universally popular in his own country. However, this story about him will please even his

what timid at sitting beside an admiral, but
who recovered his confidence when Admiral
Sims asked him, "Who is that Johnny with
the chandelier pinned on his shirt front?"
All the countries of Europe are preparing
to -improve their public utilities. All the nations are making big strides in internal development. Sweden is busy just now harnessing
the water power of its more northern provinces with the intention of electrifying its entire railroad system. It is installing a huge
underground telephone cable system, whioh
will be second in length only to the line now
operating between Washington and Boston
Great Britain and- Holland are also installing
underground cables for toll purposes. France
is going on withja program of restoration. Lines
of communication in the battle area and elsewhere are to be reorganized on a plan far better than that of pre-war days. Belgium is practically back to normal, as far as the electrical
industry is concerned. Germany is carrying on
an aetive campaign to regain her trade iu
electrical and kindred apparatus among hor
northern neighbors. Her agents are everywhere.

There seems to be a tendency on the part
of some of our citizens to become hysterical
over the government liquor store at this point.
A great deal of trash and conjecture has been
printed on the subject. When the government
decides what to do thc news will be printed

The one-crop farmer will understand the
condition in which several Latin-American

Panama perpetuates one of the greatest of

In London the policeman of the languid
hand is obeyed; in New York the policeman
of the wnite-gloved hand is often obeyed.   In
Chicago he needs a whistle to control a people
who will not obey. No peace in a crowded city
in which the stranger tells himself, "If I weaken I shan't last long."  There is no peace in
Chicago. No peace in the city of noise, traffic,
and headlines. It is with reluctance that I part
from Chicago and its mayor. They go together;
Balzac would have been interested in  them.
In minor European towns the favorite diversion is sleep; I believe the average American
would prefer nightmare. Virtue is everybody's
business. A woman's club which had applied for
a lecture date,refused to engage me because my
photograph exhibited me in a dressing gown
which exposed my neck.   Though  uot every
young American woman is pretty, she nearly
always knows how to seem it. When the fashion in dress tends toward undressing, she is
rather excessive. This may be due to the hot
summers. The American girl goes out with the
moon and returns with the snn.  I like everybody in America except the barbers and  the
waiters.—W. L. George in Hail Columbia.

Lt.-Col. C. W. Peck, V.C., D.S.O.,
M.P., together with twenty-one Canadian competitors for Bisley arrived
at Liverpool recently by the Canadian Pacific liner Metagama. Col.
Peck in an interview stated that providing they had good weather, they
honed to pull off some of the big
prizes, as the team was feeling very
fit. Major C. W. Butler is the
Adjutant in charge. Among the best
shots hi the party are Segt. W. A.
Hawkins, G.M., who won the King's
prize ln 1913 and Private A. H.
Caplin, winner of the Prince of
Wales prize in 1904. Major Geo.
Mortimer (Ottawa), Sergt. H. R.
Roberts (Toronto), and Major C. R.
Crowe (Guelph), have in turn each
won the Governor General of Canada's prize, the competition taking
place every year in the Dominion.
Serge. Hawkins last year made four
wonderful scores in Canada, he obtained the two highest aggregate
scores at Toronto, and the two highest at Ottawa, which constitutes a
record.   Lt J. O. Mix who wa* ran
prominent in his scoring for the Canadians at Bisley last year, is also
with the team. The party left direct
for Bisley, where tney will be in
practice for a week prior to the
opening of the competitions. Each
