Boy Scouts Organized.
The Boy Scout troupe that is
being organized here is being
pushed through as rapidly as pos
sible ; F. M. Waicott , Clyde Ros-
seter and Joha Slonecker have
consented to act as Scout Council
for th § organization , while HC. .
Jennings will be Scout Master
with H. VV. Davenport as his
Adjutant. Already about thirty-
six nanres have- been handed to
the Scout Master , of boys who de
sire to join and as soon as he hears
from headquarters the boys will
b3 given their examinations and
the oath of the Boy Scouts will be
administered to them. The idea
of the Boy Scout movement is to
make better boys in every way as
it learns them to be capable and
able to do many things that will
come in handy to them in later
life as well as putting them on
their honor at all times. After
they pass the first examination
and take the oath they are known
ai tenderfoots , then they will
work to take the next step which
will make them second degree
scouts , and then the last degree
which makes them first degree
scouts. There is lots for each boy
to learn before he can pass either
of the last degrees and there are
very few men in the city who
could pass the last one without a
deal of study , so the movement is
an educational one as well as the
out-door training and healthful ex
ercise. There are no fire-arms
allowed as each boy simply has
a staff and simple things necessary
for camp "life. It is hoped that
the citizens of Valentine will encourage -
courage bhcsboysall that they can.
There are now over 300,000 Boy
Scouts in the United States and
the movement is growing very

I used to work for Mr. Knox , a
farmer who had lots of rocks. I
left my couch at break of day and
toiled until the dusk was gray.
And , when the evening meal was
o'er I had to do chore after chore ;
had to feed a million sows , and
milk about a million cows. And
never once did Mr. Knox remark
to me : "Well done , old Sox ! "
He never cheered ray dismal days
by handing out a word of praise.
What wonder , then , that in my
ire , I set his house and barn on
fire , and swiped a wagonload of
straw , and carried off his mother'n- B
law. ; I went to work for Mr. K
Deans , and plowed his corn and
hoed his beans and when I came
in from my toil , all plastered o'er
with sweat and soil , he always had at
some kindly word ; he called me a
looloo , . peach and bird. And so
my labor was delight , and .though
fagged out and worn at night , I
trotted blithely out of doors and
gaily did a million chores : If al 1
employers only knew how much a
word of praise will do , the sullen
workmen that would rr
we see do
their little stunts with glee. Walt lesi
