One of the brilliant ideas that
has taken possession of State
School Commissioner Glenn and
some of the legislators is to require
the tax payers to pay as much
more into the school fund as their
counties take out. Taxes are al

One of the most urgent measures
now pending in congress is the bill
of Mr. Lodge providing for the ex
clusion of illiterate immigrants
from our ports. For several years
streams of foreign pauperism with
its attendant evils has been pour
ing into this country, and the need
of some restrictive measure has
made itselt apparent not only in
the marked increase of idlers in
the large towns and cities but in
the appalling number of crimes.—
Did you know that every reader
of this paper, as of all other week

to give all the local news, but take
care to never inform the editors of
anything that comes under their
observation that might be of gen

know well enough that the chances
are ten to one against the editors
ever hearing of these matters un
less they or some one else inform
them? Don't the other

Where Will It End?
State School Commissioner
Glenn has fashioned an ideal school
system in his mind, and possesses
the energy to make a very strong
impression upon the legislative
body. Looking forward to a civili
zation that should be an ambition
in every state, we cannot have too
much learning; but there is a ques
tion that must confront us some
of these days, with a serious bear
ing ; and that is the extent to which
taxes may be imposed upon the
individual, without his consent,
for the benefit of public institu
tions whose benevolence, after all,
is a private bestowal.
There is a growing demand in
this state for immense charities.
They are not bounded by any reas
onable supposition of necessity.
They are the outcome of sentiment
that is fanned into enthusiasm, and
then turned loose to the purposes of
demagogy. There may, after all,
be an education, that is better
learned than in the process of char
ity schooling.—Brunswick Adver

If you have had the Grippe,
you know its aches and pains,
ths fever, the chills, the cough,
the depression—you know

the nervous system quickly,

things should be done at once:
—the body must be strength

to the nervous system. Cod
