Hours of work have been re
duced in many of the schools in
Germany. By the new arrange
ments. forty-five minutes is the
maximum time for a subject, thus
allowing 1lic treatment of six sub
jects in the school day. It is
ordered that the shortened hours
in school he made up in home
study and that as little school
work as possible he done out
side the school proper. “The child
derives more benefit.!' the educa
tors think, “from its play and
from the study which it does
voluntarily than it does from the
grinding. Self-imposed mental
work is of the greatest benefit
to the school child, and the attain
ment of this is possible only when
the child has several hours daily
of absolute leisure.” Kx.

o Important as he has always been individually, the small o
o boy has until recently held a place of relatively minor im- o
o portance in the general social scheme. Eut of late he has o
o been looming larger in the public concern. The business of o
o saving boys l as commenced to rank with that of conscrv o
o ing trees and reealiming deserts. And the keynote to the o
o success of this new interest lies in the tact that the boy o
o has beer? studied from the boy's standpoint. This is the o
o “new idea of the boy"—an idea involving sane applica- o
o tion of boy-power and "gang" energy; an idea that con- o
o trusts sharply with previous theories of boy life and of o
o corrective methods. o
o The originator of this idsa and the pior.cer in its prac- o
o tical application is Homer T. Lane, superintendent of the o
o Boy's Home and Arcambal Association of Detroit, Michigan o
o —a man known to every stve it boy in that city. The o
o Home, a private philanthropy, is the capitol and executive o
o mansion of the Ford Republic. It is a social sanitarium; a o
o laboratory devoted to the study of hoy psychology. o
o Ford's is a seventy-three-acre boy's republic; halfway o
o house between the juvenile court and the state punitive o
o institution. Its citizen population, semi-floating for the o
o greater part, consists of some fifty-five boys, alleged incor- o
o rigibles, who have bobbed up with a none too gentle jolt o
o against the strong arm of the laws of their ciders. Anar- o
o chists every one, they are what the sociologists politely o
o call ‘‘unsociables.’’ Were it not for the republic, many of o
o them would long since have been consigned to a "reform" o
o or an industrial school. o
o At Ford’s the boy’s conception of his relationship to the o
o law is investigated; the law's relationship to him is dem- o
o onstrated The phenomena of self-respect, self- o
o reliance, and self restraint and the three R’s o
o of boy salvation—are reduced to terms of boy understand- o
o ing. Boy natures are dissected and weighed and compar- o
o ed, and then put together again to be molded into confor- o
o mity with desirable standards. In this remolding lies the o
o story of the republic of Ford.—Everybody’s. o

Tin* thoughtful address of President Woodrow Wilson ot
Princeton to the American Par Association was an example of
the deeper consideration which the people are giving to tin*
courts. Lawyers for the bench “who can think in the terms of
society itself" are especially needed for this time. President Wil
son said.
Other, and variant, evidences of the attention to courts art
I the demand of the two Kansas platforms for the election of fed
eral subordinate judges and the suggestion in various states that
the recall be applied to judges as well as to other officers.
Mr. Roosevelt’s repeated insistence upon tile need of estab
lishing closer touch between the habits of thought of the jiuliei
'ary and popular sentiment found'd upon popular need are further
jdemonstrations of the same thing.
All these whether all defails are to be commended or not
are to he differentiated from th' likewise admirable and hopeful
move toward a reform of judicial procedure.
Studious leaders of thought as well as the thinking populace
are applying the obvious principle that a lawyer continues to
[he a man after he gets on the bench. And some political facts
not quite so obvious, arc being more closely appreciated. People
are learning, for an instance, that an important law is not enact
ed in these days merely by being passed by the legislature or con
gress and approved by the governor or president. It is not put
into effect until the courts say that it may be—and frequently
they say that it may not be. So people who realize that this is
our constitutional system and approve the principal of the court’s
guardianship arc also appreciating that it is quite as important to
I put men on the bench or get them put there--who are tempera
mentally in sympathy with the people instead of with the spec
ial interests as it is to exercise the same discrimination with re
gard to United States senator, to congressman and to bumble legis
lators and executives.
i lo discriminate thus wisely the* people are looking to tin* rec
ords of judicial candidates, where the courts are elective. They
are also scanning records of applicants for appointment to .judi
cial places. They oppose machine politics when brought to
hear for either elective or appointive judgeships. They believe
that neither machine politics noreorporation influences should
mark the al libations of members of the courts. They believe in
these things because they are convinced that .judges' as well as
all other groups of men, continue to see things from the angle
Irom which they are used to viewing them. And this whether
they are personally incorruptible or not. It does not make so
much difference from a social viewpoint whether a man has to
be corrupted to favor the politicians and special interests against
tin* general welfare, or whether be is just naturally and tradi
tionally wrong without being corrupted.
I lie courts, as being the most important one-third of the gov
ernment, arc now being made a more intergral part of the peo
ple’s political life. Kansas City Star.

Newspaper writers in Nebraska are all on “tender hooks'as
it wei-e. I lie cloth has all been fulled and hung out on the
i ranics to dry, but no one ran tell what the texture will lie. When
it is taken dow n it still may lie wet, ami the editors do not exact
ly know what to say, that is, all except the populist editors. Pop
ulists have a set ol principles that guide them through all the
storms o| polities and that makes the path before them plain and
distinct. 1 hey w ill not support Dahlman for governor. They
.have been lighting the interests for more than a decade. They,
make no distinction in the interests that try to run the gov
ernment ol the states and tin1 nation, and when one of these
I interests tries to get control of a political party, whether it is the
railroad interests, the whiskey interest, or any other interests,
'I the populists are against it to a man. By a persistant educa
tional campaign that lasted for years, they drove the raidroads
i out ot politics and the whole state has been rejoicing ever since,
They will do the, same thing to to the liquor interests. Osceola

It is a mighty good thing to know men, not from looking at
them, but from having been one of them. When you have work
ed with them, when you have lived with them, you don’t have to
wonder how they feel, because you feel it yourself.
Every now and then I have been much amused when great
newspapers in the East, which I will say are not always friend
ly to me, after having prophesied that I was dead wrong on a
certain issue, have then found out that I was right and then
wondered how I was able to find how people were thinking.
The fact is that I am thinkink that way myself. I know
how the man that works with his hands or the man on the ranch
is thinking because I have been there, and I think that way my
self. It is not that I divine how they are thinking.—Theodore
Roosevelt at Sioux Falls.
Public Sale!
I will sell at public auction at the farm described
below, on
1910, at 2 o’clock p. m., the following real estate:
Southwest Quarter Sec. 7
Town I, Range 18

Neb., and contains the following buildings and im
provements: One 7-room dwelling, in good condition;
one 3-room dwelling; good barn, 40x50; good corn crib;

land lays good and all good black loam soil. Is one
mile from churches and schools and one mile from the
