Interest In Boy
After our article on the Hoy Scout
movement appealed Jast week We have
received uiiineious inquiries for moiu
infoi niatlon. We ucic asked to o In
fo details and explain the how of tho
movement The oigiiulation has a
dopted an olllclal hand-book which
sets out In full all the rcquiienicnts
and Miles pertaining toscuuts and fiom
that olllclal book we leain that "The
aim of tho boy scouts is to supplement
the vaiious existing educational agen
cies, and to promote the ability In boys
to do things for themselves and others.
It Is not the aim to set up a new or
ganization to parallel in its purposes
othersalieady established. The oppor
tunity is afforded these organlatlons,
however, to intioduco into their pro
gianis unique featuies appealing to
interests which ae universal among
boys The method is Hummed up in
tho term seoutcrafl, and is a combina
tion of observation, deduction and
handlne'-s, or the ability to do things.
Scoutciuft includes instruction in (lrst
aid, life saving, tracking, signaling,
cycling, nature study, seamanship,
eampcraft, woodcraft, chivalry, patrio
tism, uud other subjects. This is ac
complished in games and team play
and Is pleasure, not work, for the boy.
All that is needed is the out-of-doors,
a group of boys and a competout lead
er." The oath and scout laws must be em
phasized by the scoutmasters Before
he becomes a scout a boy must take
this oath: "On my honor I will do my
best to do my duty to God and my
country, aud to obey tho scout law; to
help people at all times; to keep my
self physically strong, mentally awake
and morally straight."
Tiie Scout Laws.
Following arc the laws showing
what the boy promises to obey when
he takes his scout oath:
"A scout is trustworthy. A scout's
honor is to be trusted If he were to
violate his honor by telling a lie, or by
cheating, or by not doing exactly a
given task, when trusted on bis honor,
he may be directed to hand over his
"A scout is loyal. He in loyal to all
to whom loyalty Is dun; his scout lead
er, his home, his parents and country.
'A scout Is helpful. He must be
prepared at any ttmo to save life, help
injured persons and share tho homo
duties. He must do at least one good
turn to somebody eveiy day.
"A scout is friendly. He is a friend
to nil and a bi other to every other
"A scout is courteous. Hois polite
to all, especially to women, children,
old people, the weak and the helpless.
He must not take pay lor being cour
teous or helpful.
"A scout is kind. He is a friend to
animals, lie will not kill or hint any
living Jeieatuie needlessly, but will
strive to save ami piotect all harmless
"A scout is obedient. He obeys his
parents, scout uuster, patrol leader
and all other duly constituted author
ities. "A fccotit is uheeiful. He smiles
whenever ho can, Ills obedience to
orders is prompt and cheery. He never
shirks nor grumbles at hardships.
"A scout is thrifty. He docs not
wantonly destroy property. He works
faithfully, wastes nothing aud makes
the best use of his opportunities He
saves bis money so that ho may pay
his own way, be generous to thosu in
need aud helpful to worthy objects.
He limy work for pay but must not re
ceive tips for courtesies or good turns.
"A scout is brave. He has the cour
age to face danger in spite of fear and
has to stand up for the right against
the coaxings of frleuds or the jeers and
threats of enemies, and defeat does
not down him.
"A scout Is clean. He keeps clean in
body and thought, stands for clean
speech, clean spoil, clean habits and
travels with a clean crowd.
"A scout is icverent. He Is reverent
towiml Hud He is tulthful lu his re
ligious duties and icspeets theconviet
Ions of others in mattcis of custom
"Theodoie lliinsewlt says, 'Our
American youths need to have some of
the wild (nought hack to ti(t.i..' Tho
Anieilcaii boy knows little about call
ing on his own resources for things
needed. Ho is accustomed to eating
and sleeping without taking thought
of how and from where these comforts
are provided. One gieat purpose of
the scout woik is to teach the boy to
use his latent resotnees. It is an edu
cative and rccioalivc work."
Tho three essentials of a scout troop
ai e a Competent leader, a group of
boys aud an out-of-doors. The hero
for tho boy is his seout-iuaster, who
must be a young man at least twenty
years of ago. The scout-master may
have older boys for patrol leaders and
corporals. The scout is expected to do
a large amount of out door work.
Tho scout unlfoi m is brown. It is
olllclal, having tho boy scout buttons
on it. The troops of twenty-four boys
each are expecting to study btids,
trees and animals, Including their
habits aud life.
