The matter or oleetrio lights is again
being discussed by our people. The
plan now most favored Is the securing
pr eurrent from lied Cloud for the
purpose. To this end it, is probable
that tho city fathers will make a trip
to lied Cloud mid learn If it is possible
to buy current from them. ir possi
ble, then It will moan that in case
lights arc demanded by the people,
thatatwouty four hour service will
be given. Tills is preferable over any
other plan. To build a Hue and install
such a plant from lied Cloud would
eost about 89,000. Of course Uio uity
can not bond itself for over $7000 nt
tho outside. Thou again the law is
such that the city cannot go outside
tlie corporolo limits to expend the
money. It therefore necessitates a
holding company or an intermediary
dun to buy from Ited Cloud tlie cur
rent mid transput t it to Hiverton.
where we can, buy it and invest, out
money iu the lines mid machinery at
I Ills i;nd ot the line. For this purpose
only four or live thousand dollars
would bo necessary. Tho intcrmodl
ary company would bo limited to a
reasonable ratu ol iuteiest on their
investment, wit It no
earnings. The consulting engineer
Says that seven dollais a month would
tie thu limit of cost to run our pumps
for the water works t it was used in
stead of gasolene. lu the summer
months it. takes its high as 830 worth
of gusoleno to keep tho pump running.
The saving there would provo of no
small mutter for tlio years to come.
That Rlverlou needs eleolrio lights
and that thoy are coming soon, tlioro
can bo no question. lltvertou Review.
May Go To 100 Pounds.
The now fifty pound limit for par
cel post packages, which went Into
effect January 1, has not resulted in
any appreciable difference In the aver
ago weight of the parcels mailed. It
is stated that this is perhaps caused by
the fact that business houses havo
scarcely awakened to realization that
achungo In weight stipulations has
bocu made. v
.Although the wolght limit has beeu
changed, tho size nnd shape of the
packages remains tho samo as bofore.
Tills shape is not more than six foot
combined length and breadth. One
difference the change will inuko is
that commibsiou men can now ship
fruit iu this manner, as, for Instance,
a box of oranges will not exceed the
length aud breadth permitted. One
good effect of this will bo to keep the
fifty pound packages in what Is known
as tho "tie-up" bags instead of dis
tributing them at once. It will also

'Wise Parent Can Inculcato Invaluable

that a child can learn Is that of self

It is not altogether so. Of course,
eoino children nro moro gifted in thlu

matter of personality, but at tho eamo
tlnio It Is a trait which tho parent can
do much to help the child to attain.
It Is certainly a characteristic which

CHILDREN IN COTTON MILLS
Pressing Social Problem That In the
Near Future Is Going to Call
Loudly for Solution.
The labor of children In cotton
manufacturing plants presents one of
the most pressing social problems or
the day, for the Industry Is living up
to Its reputation as a large employer
ot children, says a bulletin from tho
census bureau. "Tho average number
of children under sixteen years of ago
employed as wage-earners was 39,30G,
of whom nearly one-half wero girls,"
it states. "Children constituted 10.4
per cent, of the total number of wage
carnerB. In three of tho southern
states, Alabama, North Carolina and
South Carolina, nearly 19 per cent, of
nil wage-earners were children under
sixteen years of age. In Massachu
setts, the leading state in tho Indus
try, however, only 5.7 per cent, were
children. Practically one-half or the
wage-earners cmployod in the cotton
manufacturing industry in 1909 were
in establishments whero tho prevail
ing hours of labor were between C4
nnd CO por week, and nonrly one-third
wero employed in establishments
where' tho hours were CO per week."
About one-fifth of nil tho cotton mill
workers in threo southern states are
children, less than sixteen years old.

Pu2zto In Electricity.
It is amazing what a tremendous
electric shock a limn may recelvo and
yet not bo killed. No less amazing
is It how small a aUocl: will kill. It
nil dopends upon tho circumstances ot
the shock. To kill, tho shock must
pass through tho brain, heart or upper
part of tho spinal cord. A shock from
a weak current, If received over a
large area of the bpdy, will do moro
damage than a shock from a powerful
current that effects only a small and
not vital part of the body.
