The people of Webster county have

The Boy Scout
After the Boer war General Baden
Powell organized the Hoy Scout Move
ment in England. His purpose was to
develop the manliness of the boys of
that kingdom increase theirclliciency
and render them prepared aud self re
liant in emergencies. The movement
soon out grew its otigiual purpose,
spread over Europe and crossed to
America. The merely patriotic and
martial sentiments which were promi
nent. In the beginning have almost
disappeared. The English boy scout
has been replaced by the world scout
and the activities and chivalry of war
have yielded to the activities and chi
The organization appeals to what is
manliest In boys and what is boyish
in man. It proposes to bring tho men
and boys of a community into more in-
ttmatc ami better relations. It en
courages out-door life In the spirit of
fun and work combined. It is a school
of instruction for the young, conduct
cd on the play ground- in excursions
In camp life.
Every local camp or troop is con
ducted Uuder the rules of h national
organization: There is a sort of free
masonry between organizations in all
parts of the world. A boy scout could
tramp from here to New York or Son
Francisco, or over Europe, and find
assistance and helpful companionship
along his course. A boy scout is re
cognized the world over as a boy of
character, trust worthy, deserving and
fit for fellowship.
One does not, of course, become a
boy 'scout by mere enlistment. He
must serve his time as a tenderfoot,
pass the examinations prescribed and
submit to the tests of qualifications.
It is not a religious institution, al
though all thu churches are invited to
partlcipato In its councils. It is as
broad and liberal as our public schools
audit aims to widen, heighten and
enrich the boy life t the utmost,
while preserving the boyish spirits
and gaycty and fun.
It alms to make the men of a com
munity more sympathetic with boys
to make them considerate of all boys
as the companions of their boy,' to give
them the means of recognizing the
boys of real worth aud merit the boys
who are avowedly striving to make
themselves of most use.
Courtesy, courage, self-helpfulness,
self-reliance, willingness and ability
to be of service, ere the chief lessons
to be learned. These lessons arc to be
learned from actual experience, under
competent leaders drilled by the best
drill musters of the community, after
study of the manuals of training.
A leading feature of the training is
what tire called "Hikes." A trip of
one or two days or more, under the
guidance of an experienced man a
trip on foot, with eyes open to see and
note what is to be seen tho grasses,
the trees, the Dowers, the birds and
animals with minds keen to learn
from the voice of the Instructor, in
search of sullerlug to relieve wonts
to bo ministered to, with the prepar
ation of their own meals, and camp
life at night with camp fire stories
that will stimulate the sentiment of
serviceable courtesy and instruct in
the modes nnd instrumentalities of
helping themselves aud others.
It takes tho boy at the age when ho
revolts at "tdssiness''; when his pros
pective manliness reveals Itself In
gruffer tones, ruder manners nnd un
rulinessof spirit. That is the age when
the most worthless boys of the school
aud comtnuuity, the braggart, the bull
ies, the foul mouthed, the profane, the
tobacco users, the liquor drinkers are
apt to be the heroes; the leaders of
opinion, the moulders of sentiment.
They are noisy and assertive, while
instinctive shyness prevents the mod
est, the clean minded, the brave and
thoughtful from taking their place at
the head of tho column.
The teacher, the preacher, the Sun
day school Instructor, even the father
and mother, feel themselves weakened
In influence. Thoughtless men in the
community say and act before the boys
of other families as they would not
have men speak and net before their
rue uoy scout movement aims to
take the boy at this period, and de
velop his strength in gentleness, his
activity in usefulness, his mental vigor
in considerate thotightfulness, yet all
Infused with tho spirit of play uud joy

In Sunday's Chicago .Tribune there

a Doctor teaching a class of 2000 boys
