D ) es your boy use tobacco ,
drink or swear ? If you know , or
suspicion he does some of these
things help him get away from
the habit by letting him join the
ranks of the boy scouts. There
he is put upon his honor not to do
the things that are detrimental to
his physical and moral welfare ,
and you will see him grow up to
be a big healthy man.
. When a boy becomes a scout he
must promise :
On my. honor I will do mybest :
1. To do my duty to God and ray
country , and to obey the scout
2. To help other people at all
3. To keep myself physically
strong , mentally awake , and mor-
The following laws which relate
to the Boy Scouts of America , are
the latest and most up to date.
These laws a boy promises to obey
when he takes his scout oath.
1. A scout's honor is to be trust
ed. If he were to violate his hon
or by telling a lie , or by cheating ,
or by not doing exactly a given
task , when trusted to his honor , he
may be directed to hand over his
2. He is loyal to all to whom loy
alty is due ; his scout leader , his
home , and parents and country.
3. He must be prepared at any
time to save life , help injured per
sons , and share the home duties.
He must do at least one good turn
to somebody every day.
4. He is a friend to all and a
brother to every other scout.
5. He is polite to all , especially
to women , children , old people ,
and the weak and helpless. He
must not take pay for being help
ful or courteous.
6. He is a friend to animals. He
! will not kill or hurt any living
! 1 It ) creature needlessly , but will strive
to save and protect all harmless
7. He obeys his parents , scout
master , patrol leader , and all other
duly constituted authorities.
8. He smiles whenever he can.
His obedience to orders is prompt
and cheery. He never shirks or
grumbles at hardships.
9. He does not wantonly destroy
property. He works faithfully ,
wastes nothing , and makes the
best use of his opportunities. He
saves his money so that he may
pay his own way , be generous to
those in need , and helpful to
worthy objects. He may work
for pay but must not receive tips
for courtesies or good turns.
10. He has the courage to face
danger in spite of fear and has to
stand up for the right against the
coaxings of friends or the jeers or
threats of enemies , and defeat
does not down him.
11. He keeps clean in body and
thought , stands for clean speech ,
clean sport , clean habits , and
travels with a clean crowd.
12. He is reverent towards God.
He is faithful in his religious
duties and respects the convictions
of others in matters of custom and

for all a boy's faults , or.that he

temptation and to keep on the

Washington , Oct. 3 : One of the
New York financial papers which
has the interest of Wall street very
much at heart printed a statement
following the recent disturbance
in the steel market to the effect
that the flurry caused a decline in
steel shares of approximately one
hundred million dollars.
In the three days of the flurry
nearly one-third of the trust's
§ 500,000,000 of common stock was
sold on the stock exchange in such
volume that the price was carried
to new low levels , thus showing
that the one hundred millions in
decline represent the amount of
money it is worth to the trust to
be considered immune from * the
operation of the Sherman law.
Nothing has happened to indi
cate that anything is wrong with
the intrinsic value of the steel
properties. The mills are work
ing as usual , and are in exactly
the same state of efficiency they
were in two years ago when the
stock was selling at its high water
mark. The shrinkage came because
of rumors that the trust was to be
prosecuted , and as the business
the real business of the trust
was not injured in any way , the
hundred millions simply repre
sents the excess profits the trust
stood to loose in the event of dis
solution under the application of
the Sherman law. In other words
the shrinkage serves as a measure
of the value of the trust of a lice -
ce nse to violate the law. When that
license was threatened the trust's
shares fell immediately , and this
fall in prices , simply as the result
of a scare , is pretty sure to be
used by the democrats as an argu
ment for making securities keep
down to their real value through
an enforcement of the anti-trust
Commenting on the fall of steel
prices , Chairman Stanley , of the
House committee which just now
is investigating the steel trust ,
said that nothing could better
demonstrate the necessity of en
forcing the anti-trust law.
"It is obvious , " Mr. Stanley
said , "that the reason steel stocks
fell a hundred million dollars is
because the trust was operating
under an assumption of immunity
from prosecution under the anti
trust act. The instant that im
munity was threatened , the stocks
sell. The very insecurity of the
basis on which the trust rests , as
thus shown , is sufficient reason for
an application of the law that will
compel the steel millionaires to
put their business on a more le
gitimate foundation. Otherwise
their stockholders will always be
apprehensive , and their methods
open to suspicion. "
That it was this fear ofjosingits
license to violate the law which
caused the steel trust to suffer is
indicated that the * 'break" in
stocks applied to no other securi
ties. Nor was there any indication
of a lessening of the demand for
the products of the trust. Market
conditions remained normal ; tbe
stocks of some of the railroads in
The "steel flurry" was proof
positive that the shrinkage in
stocks , under the conditions named
reveals that the steel trust's li
cense to ignore the law is worth a
hundred million dollars to the
