Your schoolhounes. Those of the town and those of the country dls. tricts. You know what they mea. to you and to your children. They represent the difference be. tween Igno1'ance nnd . enllghtenmeut. The ) . mean to your children the differ. nce between signing their names with a mark or in writing , They represcnt the difference between the civilization of the twentieth century , as this country knows It and the b:1r. barism of benighted Asia or Africa. . You want the schoolhouse , do yon not ? You " . .auld willingly make sacrifices to keepJt. , , vould you not ? You glory in the free educational system of this country , do you not ? But , Mr. Citizen , did you ever sit down and consider carefully what It is that makes possible , the school. houses of this country ; the school , houses that stand as beacon lights on the tops of a thousand , hl11s ; the schoolhouses that carry cheer and en. lIghtenment to the llearthstones of the homes of a thousand valleys ! It is the taxes that you , and your neighbor , and ) 'our neighbor's neigh , bor pay into the school fund year after : rear , Is it not ? And why do you pay it 1 Because you own property-real es , tate , bonds and mortgages-and be , cause that property Is valuable , I \\That makes ) 'our real estate yale uable ? , It Is the prosperity oC the commu. I nit ) ' , As the community grows and " prospers the value of ) 'our propert ) , incre3ses , As your property increases in value and you write ) 'our wealth in thousands instead of hundreds , the amount ) 'ou pa ) ' Into the school fund Increases. When the school fund in , creases the old building gives place to a. new and more modern structure , in which your children and your neigh , bor.s children secure their instruc. tlon , And , again , the erection of the new building but adds more to the value of your propert ) ' , It Is an endless chain system that builds vl11ages out of cross roads , and cities out oC vl11ages , Who are ) 'OU , Mr , Citizen , and who is your neighbor and ) 'our neighbor's neighbor , whose contributions to the school fund make the schoolhouses possible ? You , and your neighbor , and your' neighbor's neighbor , are the farmers , the merchants , the doctors , the blacksmiths. You are each and every m3n who go to make up the \ . community in which ) 'OU live , and it Is ' ' when you work coliecUvely that , you accomplish results-that you build up new schoolhouses , And how shall you work collec , . th'el , !

GAMES OF SHARPERS , Some of the Methods Used for Secure Ing Money Dishonestly , . . . - 1II11110n9 Ullon millions of dollars nro fraudulentlr laken from the poeltets of the Ileoilio ) 'ear after ) 'ear through the operation of confidence men. The schemes us'd I'y thcse men are numer. ous. Nearly all arc based upon the fact tl13t the M'erage person is always wl11lng to take the best of a bargain , During the past Cew months swine dlers have been olleratln ; In dUIoront pnrts of the l'ountr ) ' , and their method , whlle a modlncatlon of an old swJn. dllng game , has some new features worthr of notice. Their usual proced. ure Is to locate Carmers who are not well known to local bankers and loan men , They approach the farmer and under pretext of seeking to purchas" farming land , manage In some way t(7 secure his signature , This is goneral. ly done b ) ' Inducing him to write a letter , or to sign some statement. Once the slgnaturo is secured , 1fictl. . tlous deed to the farmer's land is pre. pared and this Is fixed up in such n manner as to show the seal of some notary or other officer , Then with this deed the swindler is in position to negotiate a loan upon the land. This amo has been successfully worked in n number oC western states. . Residents of agricultural districts should be continually on their guard against the signing of receipts or a1)7 kind of contract which may bo presented - sented to them by strangers , Within the past year some smooth swindlers have succeeded in securing thousands or dollars on fraudulent notes , securing - ing from farmers. who were foolish enough to take for trial washinr : ma. chines , refrigerators , etc" and to glvo their receipts for the same. These receipts - ceipts turnln ; up later as negotlablo notes , The writer of checks cannot be too care CuI In filling In the amounts. The Ca"orlte methods of the checle receiver Is to Insel' ! after the words "six , " "seven , " "eight" or "nine" the letter "y" or "ty" and change the ciphers In the checte dccordlnglY , Thus It can be seen that a check written for eight dollars. by the addition of the letter "y" can be made to read for eighty dollars and the changing of the amount , If It be In numerals , by the addition of cipher , makes the forgery , when well executed.

I vld , but David was ready to reo turn good for evil , He had no scores to settle whcn the provo Idences of God brought his for. mer enemies under his power , Selfish ambition David had not. On the contrary , his career I strikingly Illustrates the possl. blllty of a turnan , soul gauging n his ambitions In harmony with the will of God , He wanted I only what God In his own time , and his own way was willing to ! give. Hence he escaped the pit. ' falls of human plotting and In. I i trlgue and his hands were free from the staIns of the , blood of n I his enemies. David desired the kingdom be.

OAR with feyerish haste adjusted J his garments and stnrted towards the palace of King David , The few who were in the market place at that. . early hour were startled and surprised : to see the captain ot the hosts of Ju. dah ubroad at such time , knowing that anI ) ' the most Important matters could take him to the Ilresence of the king at that unseasonable hour. But Joab was too much absorbed with his own thoughts to notice the startled glances which followed him , for that morning a secret messenger had brought to him alarming UdinbFB from Mahanalm , the royal city or Israel , ! where IshboshetJ1 , the son of Saul , i . reigned , These tidings were to the. effect that the king had been slain' ' upon his bed , "And now is David's opportunity , " muttered , Toab to himself ns he hur. ried on , "Now will he bo able to bring Israel under his hand , Will he but give his consent , I will start with the army this very day , " And arriving at that moment at the palace door , he knocked impatiently , loath to let one precious minute be wasted , Urging the surprised sen'ant to hasten ho entered the audience room of the king , and not long ntter Davhl the king entered , "What brings you here at such un , seemly ) lour ? " he exclaimed anx. lously. "What but tno klng's good 1" re , sponded Joab , reassuringly , "I seck the bidding ot thy king to go nnd bring Israel under thy banner , " , "Thou , who hast killed Abner , tho' captain of the hosts or Israel , just when I had made a league with him , " excitedly demanded David , "Wouldst thou kill Ishboshoth , the king , also ? " Joab winced at the words at Da. vid , 'Nay , another hath alread ) ' perform , cd that righteous act , " he roplled , "Rlgh teous act ! Call est thou mur. del' an act oC righteousness ? Whoso haOll Is stained with blood ? Surel ) ' It' was not thy emissary which hath done this thing ? " I "Na ) ' , na ) ' , I am guiltless of such charEo , I know not who ll th killed shbos1.1oth UIon his bed , but. this I JlIA tb.ntJ.lr or th ) ' armies , knows , " , ' . , , nm1 that Js tbat th ) opportunity bath come to spread th ) ' rule nnd th ) ' kln ' ; dO1o"er all Itimet.

" Da\'ld's e'o fiaslwd and he took a step toward Joab. " 'fhinlt ) 'ou Cor a moment , " ho thun. dered , "that lwltl would take n mean advantaEe oC the misfortunes of his brothers In Israel ?

" "But It Is now 01" novel' , " IJrotested Joab , "Israel needs a leader. It it find nol such In theo U10Y will cheese \ono. from among themselves to lead : \ them. There arc man ) . ambitious souls among the mel } of Israel. " "nut this thing Is not of Gal ) , If lernel seek me not as king , then will not I reach out for the kingdom. " Further protest on tho. 11 rt of Joab wns prevented by the hurried entrance of a servnnt who announced tile arrival of two messengers Cram Israel who demanded to see King Da"id at once , nOlI at a sign from the king they were admitted , Dowlng low before the king , they waited until he bade them rlsc , when they addressed him as follows : "Wo be th ) ' sen'unts , 0 king , Wo are Rochab Ilnd Dnanah , the sons of Rlmmon the Deerothito , nnd nre como with tidings of good things for our Lord , Deholll the head ot Ishboshcth , the son of Saul thine enem ) . , which sought thy lICe , " And as they spolco the ) ' unrolled boo fore the startled e'es of David and Joab the ghastly head of the dend Idng of Israel. David turn 'tl awa ) ' his hend in hor. ror , whllo Rechab nnd Haanah can. tlnued : "The lArd hath avenged my lord lJo ! king this day oC Saul , and oC his seed. " nut ther got no further , Cor David turned upon them nnd In a voice which cut like steel he said : "As the I.ord liveth , who halh r& deemed m ' soul out of all adversltr , I when one told lI1e sa'ing , Behold , Saul is dead , thinking to have brought good tidings , I took hold oC him , and slow him In Zlklag , who thought that I 1 would have given him a reward.for I his lJdlngs , How much more , when wicked men have slain a righteous person in his own house upon his bell ? Shall I not therefore now require his blood of ) 'our hand , and take you away from the earth 1" And turning to his young armor bearers staUlllng near he commanded them to seize Rechab and Baanab aUlI to take them out and slay them , which when they had done ther cut oft their hands and their feet and hnnged them up over the 11001 In Hebron. But David hrld the head oC Ish. bosheth. taken and burled in Ule sepulcher - ulcher of Abner in Hebron , Now , when tidings of these things reached the ears of the people of Is , rael , the ) ' lenew that David had not been concerned in the wicked 1110t , ant\ \ that he was not trrlng In anr way to force an , ( ) xten lon 0' [ his kingship over Israel , For this reason - son when the lIeoplo Cram all the tribes had come together It was quick. ly agrecd that the ) ' shoul.l . seek Davhl out at Hebron and there request that he become king over Israel as well . as Judah , And so It came to lIass that a few days after , even while Joab was SIJcaking to his Intimate friends of the fall ) ' of King David by "hlch he had lost his .chance of winning control over all of Isruel , thut the elders from all the trlb s sought audience tvlth David at Hebron , saying to him : "Behold , we arc th ) ' bone and thy fiesh. Also In time lIast when Saul was king over us , thou wast he that letldest out and broughtest In Israel : and , the Lord said to thee , Thou shalt feed my Ileople laruel , and thou shalt be a captain over INraol. " And DavJd made league , vlth them In Hebron bnfore the Lord , and there they anointed David king over Israel , and the rejolchlr ; of the Ileople ex , cleded the morning which had filled the land hecausl' ot the wars which had been waged between the lting. doms of .1udah and Israel.
