The traveler who most enjovs her journeys has learned
to disregard njmeurancen, to some extent, and to consider com
fort beyond nil else. Now, "cheap red felt feet" do not sound alluring,
but they are not intended for exhibition and if your feet are the kind that
turn into Mocks of ice on ordinary dry land you will vulue these simple
foot warmers for the sen voyage.
Cut two large, Hat shoe-shaped pieces of scarlet felt, lace them to
gether with narrow red ribbons run through a very course needle. You
may best accomplish this with an overseain stitch. Now cut a row of per
pendicular slits around the ankles and run through them ties of inch-wide
red ribbon. When the boat rolls and the breezes blow your feet, clad in
their scarlet warmers, may prove your most cheerful companions.

Although other causes have operated
to some extent, there is no reasonable doubt
that the principal cause of the general ad
vance in prices during the last decade is
the largo increase in the production of gold,
which has resulted and is resulting in a
continuous depreciation of our standard of
value. (!old is a commodity and subject
to variations in value governed by natural
forces in the same manner as copper or
wheat, and while its use as the standard of
value prevents the sudden or speculative
variation characteristic of many other
commodities, the same fundamental law of
supply and demand controls its value. The depreciation in the value of
gold will continue as long as the present large production continues, will
cease when a balance occurs between supply and demand, and if the re
cently developed gold deposits begin to give out and no new deposits arc
discovered, we shall enter upon a period of increase in the value of gold
and the resultant decrease in prices.
Assuming that gold has depreciated HO per cent, during the last 15
years, which is probably near the truth, gives the result that $1 to-day is
required to purchase the same amount that could he bought for 70 cents
15 years ago. If nil things immediately adjusted themselves to this
ihiinge as it progressed, and every decrease in the value of gold was imme
diately met by an eiial increase in the value of everything purchased, it
would make no diirerenee to any one. The mechanic' whose $;l per day
in 181)5 was increased to $1 per day in 110!) could afford to pay T5 cents
to $1 cr barrel more for flur, and
other things in proportion, without
being better or worse off.
Those engaged in industrial pursuits
will welcome the recently published edito
rials relating to safety devices upon ma
chinery and its approval of the law limit
ing the daily employment of women to 10
hours in mechanical establishments, fac
tories and laundries. Our legislature is
beginning to recognize that the state of
Illinois is concerned in the 6afety, the
health and the welfare of its workers, and
it is to be hoped that the cmrrts will per
ceive that the benefits of such laws to the
community will exceed an occasional case
of hardship that may arise under their
operation. The right to labor and to secure as large a wage as he ean
earn is valuable to every citizen, yet it is one that should be subject to
regulation and control the same as any other property right, where its
unrestricted use is detrimental to the general welfare.
It would require no argument to prove to any one familiar with work
ing conditions in tin? average factory or laundry that a limit of 10 hours'
daily employment is not nn unreasonable restriction upon females or even
upon men, had the legislature seen fit to go that far.

in the public schools should be careful in

they would recognize such plants at sight.
The necessity for this warning is dem
onstrated by the poisoning from weeds and
plants of members of the botany class at
the Salisbury high school, in England.
That there is real danger in such in
fect iou is shown by the blindness of one
of the affected pupils.
Personal instruction is generally the best and it would be wise, for
the local school teachers to accompany their pupils when trips, are made
into the. woods to secure llowers and plants as specimens for study..
The danger of poisojiing can only be avoided by knowledge of tha
dangerous growths. . -
