-v FOVR Pr 'z QIRLS AND THEIR FRIEND8. g* Girls, on tbe ^hole, are more .prone? to make slight friendships than taei£ are. Amanmay fc^ve ofie or ,two Mends, but they are* generally real pals, whereas a girl frequently has many acquaintances, and wastes her time over glris who don't matter and don't care a fig for her. In the end she often finds herself friendless in consequence. There are two tests of friendship, and maybe they apply to some men as well. They are "going abroad" and "getting engaged." Heaps of girls who get engaged drop all their former friends, so that they may de­ vote all their time to the one and on­ ly. Such a selfish thing to do, besides being very bad for one and only And old friends find they are left out in the cold. The girl who goes' abroad is also guilty ofi treating her friends badly, says a writer in London Star. In her new surroundings, making new friends, she forgets the good times •he had in |he old country, forgets that her letters are eagerly looke...

The Bureau of Education at Wash­ ington expresses the cheerful hope that the next generation of American^ will be practically free from illiteracy.

The Cook County News-Herald BLACKWELL Untied as second-class mall matter December 19th, 1907, at the pOBt office, at Grand Mara Is, Minn., under the act of Congress of March 3. 1879. Published Tfeekly at Orand Marais. Minnesota. ONE DOLLAR A YEAR otrivial County and Village Paver. THE SIMPLE LIFE. Simple living is not so much an economic question ajs it is a moral question, the morality part relating to the duty one owes to himself and others to keep himself well in body, soul and mind. That is the object of simple living—not to save money, says the Ohio State Journal. The idea Is to make a person's brain clear and clean, so he will think clear thoughts and take to clean living. A brain that is blackened by rich and luxurious liv­ ing is very apt to be clogged with pas­ sions and prejudices, with selfishness and sordidness. Not always, of course, but that is the tendency. A person can contaminate a great portion of his spirit and come mighty near destroying his faith in God, by eati...

ii-f* a fr,s ta Thinks bout A /. A. WALKER WASTED ENERGY. TirBiT aback Madame Curie most W In America *'was the electric, nervous energy that she feund in the cities. She made, the suggestion: If, all this power were used to farther one great work, how tremendous the re­ sult would bet There spoke the woman of science. The true discoverer in the natural world uses Imagination as well as observation in finding out things. Madame Curie and her husband knew that radium existed before they succeeded In releasing it from the material in which it was hid. Ker attitude towards the busy life around her Is naturally different from that of the ordinary spectator who only looks at the surface commotion. The difference between 'the two is like that between a couple of visitors to Niagara Falls. To one the great rash of waters is nothing in the world but a physical curiosity. He objects to any Inter­ ference by man with the appearance of the scenery. To the other the important thing is quite dif...

LURIE Common Errors in English and How to Avoid Them "THE NEWS ARE." THERE are certain words in Eng­ lish which are seemingly plural In meaning because they are plural in form, ending in "s." But they are really singular in meaning, and there­ fore they should take the singular verb, not the plural, although the prop­ er use may seem incorrect. Among :h words are "news," "politics," onomics." One should not say, for example, "The news concerning the war are good" "politics, when prop­ erly conducted, are a good pursuit for a citizen" "economics have been called the dismal science." In all of these cases, use the singuar verb. There are, however, certain words ending in "s" concerni...
