Within a week the old year, 1901,
will have become a period of history,
its record complete. The year 1902
begins then, and it will be as the
people make it.
Because of this transition, this pe
riod each year is peculiar. With most
people tlie time is devoted exclusive
ly to pleasure seeking, with seeming
ly no. thought of the future.
Just where the fault is for all the
wrong that is done during Christ
mas week, it is difficult to say. Much
of course is due to environment, and
the custom of license that has pre

due towndividual carelessness, to use
a mild Word.
However the record of Christmas
week may be, there must be a begin
ning of a now year, and if there has
been bad action in the old year,
there must be much good in "the
new, else tho record of that will be
worse than tho old.
Tho individuals must choose. May
the choice be right. *
An Endless Qhain Affair.
Within the last sevoral weeks
many young women at Perry, and
throughout the county, no doubt,
have rocoivod numerous letters offer
ing $20 pel- month for writing sev
eral hours each day at home.
One of the propositions is that
the recipient of the proposition pell
25 cherry trees at $1.00 each, remit
the amount to tho company through
the writer of tho letter, and then she
will become an agent of tho compa
ny at $20 per month.
The duties of each agent will be
to write letters to induce other
y cuing women te sell cherry trees
and in turn become agents of the
cherry tree company.
It is suggested that pay for the
trees may be forwarded at once, and
the sales made afterward, thas be
coming a paid agent at onco.
"It is readily Been that the sale of
the trees at an exorbitant price is
the main purpose, and to extend
without limit the work of sending
in to the company the price of tho
Au exceedingly good scheme for
the cherry tree company, but there
is Bure to be a collapse, and there
will be loss to somebody other than
the originator of the scheme.
On the same theory and practice
agents for the sale of a patent fish
net are being sought.
Each ndw agent must send in a
cash order before work for pay can
begin, and the greater tlie number
of agents, the greater the amount of
cash that goes to the company, even
if through the efforts of the agents
no aotual sales are made.

At intervals during the past few
years the editor of The Ladies Home
Journal has attacked the “cram
ming” and “pushing” systems so
prevalent among the schools of this
country. Each editorial given to
this subject has brought hundreds
of letters, most of them not only ac
knowledging the wrong, but adding,
as well, strong and sad proofs to the
statements made. These letters were
kept. In the January issue of The
Journal the editor’s page is occupied
by brief excerpts from sixty-eight
of them. They are “dedicated to
the American parent,” and classed
under three heads: “A Roll for Ed
ucators to Ponder Over,” ‘.‘A Roll
for Parents to Think Over,” and “A
Rvll Which Speaks for Itself.” There
are no names, dates or localities men
tioned. Nothing but the unsought
testimony of a few out of the thous
ands who are suffering the silence of
this “sorrowful tribute to modern
schooling.” Here is one of the six
