Ages and ages ago this huge beast, the

He took up a great deal of room and con-

David Starr Jordan, the great
peace advocate, says that our
method of teaching history is
wrong. We teach too much
about war, he says, and too lit-
tle about the achievements of
peace. The things really worth
while in the nations have been
done in times of peace, not in j
time of war. A history that,
would minimize th« war hero,
and the horrors of war and mag-1
nify advancement made in times
of peace would, he thinks, be of
far greater value in preparing
boys and girls to be useful men
and women than the histories
that we now have. Henry Ford
of Ford automobile fame, comes
forward with a concrete sug-
gestion on this proposition, lie
oilers a million dollars for a his-
tory that will minimize the war
hero and exalt the peace hero,
the reverse of what history gen-
erally does. Ford is a practical
man with something of the seer
thrown in. Ilis money joined
with the brains of the man that
can write the history will be a
blessing to mankind.
ton. In this way he could soon
make enough to pay his tuition
and at the same time preserve
his self respect and integrity of
character. We believe as much
as any one that any worthy per-
son who is unable to make a liv-
ing should receive assistance.
Hut help to such people should
be of a nature that would help
them to help themselves. When
a person is able to work he should
have too much manhood to beg,
and his begging should not be
tolerated by giving him small
sums, usually not enough to get
him any distance toward self
support. The small sums given
beggars is usually only sufficient
to keep them alive and results in
no more than a push deeper into
the ditch of despondency and
helplessness. Such giving should
be discontinued. In its place
should be substituted a system
operated by the state that would
enable people who have become
disabled and maimed to make an
honest and simple living under
industrial supervision. Some
such plan would be the imme-
diate relief of the state from
beggarism, The cause of pau-
perism lies further back and
necessitates different treatment.

long this state of affairs can con-

no one would attempt to answer

jtinues the more imminent inter-

Mr. Farmer, the next First
Saturday would be a good time
to bring your wife to town and
let her get acquainted with
women from other parts of the
county. There are women in
iJtiackelford that don't see town
more than once a year, and some
not that often. Hring your wife
to Albany occasionally. It won't
cost you much and she will enjoy
The state scholastic apportion-
ment for this year has been set
at six dollars per capita. This
is two dollars lower than it was
last year. Hut only seven dol-
lars was paid last year, and the
apportionment has been reduced
this year so that this deficit may
be made up. Many of the schools
whose support was already in-
adequate, will lie submitted to
graver financial embarrassment
than ever before.
An unusual statement was J
made in Albany Monday by one!
who has made a rather extensive
study of the many social and
educational problems that eon-
front us as a nation. Prof.
Pearce of Austin in talking to
the teachers, said that 415 per
cent.of the inmates of the insane
asylums of Texas are farmers'
wives. He said that the recog-
nized cause of this by authori-
ties who have made a deep study
of such questions, is the monot-
ony to which the farmer's wife
is subjected. Monotony is the
cause, it is believed, of insanity. .
The person who never gets out
of the same environment, is sub-1
jected to the same scenes, faces,
drudging away in a tiresome
routine day after day, month
after month, becomes melan-
choly, introspective, despondent, |
and finally insane. It is not good i
for man to be alone, neither is it
good for woman. The social life
is the natural life. Man is a
social being, and when deprived
of social contact, he becomes one-
sided, dwarfed, if nothing worse;
and, as indicated above, this sol-
itarity which is the lot of some
leads to insanity.
We are virtually at war with
Mexico, that is if combats be-
tween the two opposing, forces
resulting in killing can be said
to constitute war. Yet war has
not been declared on either side,
and its declaration has not even
been suggested on the part of
Uncle Sam. Still the Mexicans
keep invading T« xas and are

county institute Monday referred

A Real Tragedy.
One of the greatest tragedies
of every-day, real life is an hon-
est young man, struggling hard
to earn a livelihood and save a
few dollars, and having a foolish
wife, who keeps his nose to the
grindstone by her extravagant
ideas of living and an effort to
do society, l! is the most dis-
coi raging thing in the world to
a man to see day by day that every
dollar he makes by struggling
and planning, is being thrown
away by an unsympathetic wife.
The right kind of a man thinks
as much of his credit as a woman
does of her honor. When his
business probity and credit are
gone, lie is an outcast from the
world of men. He goes about
the streets afraid to look his
fellows in the face, and wherever
he goes he feels the burden
crushing the life out of him. He
grows timid, loses his stamina
and manhood, all because he is
unable to meet his obligations.
The best years of his life are
passing, and instead of laying
up a bank account he is going in
debt to pay millinery and dress-
making bills for society functions,
carriages, long distance mes-
sages. expensive presents, fancy
stationery, and grocery bills that
are twice too high. The wife of a
busy workingman holds the
family purse-strings, and it rests
largely with her whether they
are to be poor, always poor, or
have a bank account. It rests
largely with her whether her
husband is to live a happy, vig-
orous life, or to be harrowed al-
most into insanity by unpaid
bills and a future which holds
out no hope.
It pays young married people
to be sensible. Save at least a
par! of the earnings, and live on
the rest. The world will think
infinitely more of them fordoing
this than if will for trving to

eh? "Nothing like that in our
family." We have been trying
to imitate some of the singers
that were at the singing conven-
tion the 5th Sunday in August.
We have been greatly amused at
the gathering of song birds to
hear us warble and at the num-
ber of them that have sworn off
and have commited suicide. It's
great to be a sweet singer and
we never dreamed of having
such a charming voice.

but perhaps a better price than
if we had made a bumper crop.
