Mf IITESLST speaks all sorts of tongues and plays all sorts of parts, even
& that of disinterestedness." La Rochefoucauld was right. Interest
is the ever increasing rolling snowball of money. Interest grows
fat upon what it feeds. Interest is never an idle fellow, but he is best
when let alone. GET INTERESTED IN INTEREST. Some INTER
ESTING FIGURES about what INTEREST WILL DO for the asking.

As a Woman Sees It.
A few of ho points made by
Mrs. .Melville in the paper written
on "Why There Should bo a
Mother on the School Hoard:"
( I i Tho view point of a woman
is different from a man's, so in
interest, of the child, women as
well as men are needed on the
school board. ( J' Heeauso moth
er interest is needed in the man
agemenl of 'ho affairs of Ihe
school. (.! Women more oflen
have tho necessary time o visit
the schools and do tin1 required
work for the best interest of Ihe
school. ( 5 ' The housekeeping
end of school management is of
vital interest to a mother, .-uch
as sanitation, heating, lighting
and ventilation. (.V A woman
on the school board can do much
lo brim:- about a closer co-operation
between patron and the
school. (' r ' Then more than half
of the scholars are -'irls and
about seven-tenths of our in
structing force are women. Thorr
needs to be someone on the school
board who understands the wom
an's side of the problems to pre
sent theni properly. ' Ther
should be someone on the board
lo whom the teachers may
with freedom and talk over Ihe
affairs which they could not talk
of so freely wilh men and who
would understand the girl nature
better than men. ('7 Xalhaniel
Butler of the Chicago university
has said 'T should go so far as lo

The illustrious Lincoln once
said, "Don't swap horses in the
middle of a stream." This maxim
holds good regarding the hi-ih
school building committee. This
committee has gone through some
diliicult problems in the financing
and plans of construction of our
new school building. There are
more diliicult ipieslions to moot.
One experienced in finance must
be retained upon this board; we
cannot afford to break tile work
ing harmony of the commit ' eo.
F.aeh member is familiar with lii
details of all concerning the con
struction of this building. The
financial section of the committee
has been the nio( strenuous part
to till. There are diliicult situa
tions yet to bo met. Tho writing
of a check for the new school
building is a purile consideration
of the question. A mother on the
choid board is an ideal one. Xo
one muld oppose her at any other
time. Wo are all in favor of the
principles inculcated in the doc
