And she wants the boy to visit her In

says sha will get his clothes, pay his dues
if ha la selected tor a good fraternity and
do all the honors. "He can make his way
In tha world," says my friend's rich sis

doesn't care a straw for college In any
way at all.
"I don't Ilka him to accept so much
now." says my friend. "I hate to start
my boy in life In debt to some one who
has never paid the least attention to htm
before. My sister is lonely, she wants
some one to love her, and I don't believe
that my son can do that exactly if she
does send him to college, and yet what
shall I sayT"
I know what I would ssy. I would say,
with all the politeness and all the sincere
gratitude In the world. "No, thank you,
sister. My boy is not ambitious socially .,
he couldn't keep up with the college set
after he leaves college; Nhe isn't the sort
of boy that really cares for study at all.
and ha plays foot ball well enough -now,
thank you. Besides, he really prefers
base ball, he says it's here longer, and I
don't think It Is starting right to take
some one else's money right at the be
ginning of life."
I'd rather have my boy proud, Indepen
dentstubborn. If you will than too
grateful, too easy going, too used to ac
cepting favors from any one. Least of
all from a relative.
I'd rather owe a thousand dollars to
the worst dun on earth than to owe $50
to a relative. The dun will dun you and
call it square; the relative will remember
that money It you pay It back a thousand
times and she'll want every dollar of It
paid back in heart's blood, drop by drop,
If she's anything like most relatlvea who
do that kind of thing for their kin.
"My boy's a free man now, I'd rather
he stay tfhat way.""
And I'd mean It, every word of It.
There's one thing that is more important
to the average man than all the education
in all the books on earth, and that Is his
own Independence and his own honest
. I'd rather my boy would never see the
tnslde of a lecture room than to have him
see It through the eyes of a parasite and
a flatterer. I wonder if I'm wrong?

Crowd closer together, all you who oc
cupy positions on the platform of Fame,
and make room for a man who has
proved ha Is superior to his sex; who Is
so great In his achievements he Is almost
a woman! Make way there, for Frederick
Elllston Brsndt of St. Paul, Minnesota!
There was held In St. Paul recently a
state fair, to which, farmers brought hogs
so fat they had lost all Taclal expression,
prize calves, big pumpkins, horses with
slender ankles and heavy tails and corn
that grew high. The women were there
with insane quilts, jelly of three colors
In one i!'s, cakea of so many layers
they lookcu like a band, stand
preserves, dollies on
which were em-
broldered marvellous strawberries snd
pansles, green grape pickles, hair wreaths
under glass frames and squash pies.
But move closer together, you who
occupy position on the platform of Fame,
for here Tomes Frederick Ellison Brsndt,
a man who Invaded woman's domain and
did her work better than she had ever
done It. Hiding among the acres of em
broidered roses and tulips, drawn work,
hemstitched and Irish crochet, there was
found a Hardanger embroidered lunch
cloth five feet square, the work of a
man. and ta It the committee pinned tha
blue ribbon. '
And the women embroiderers of St
Paul, who had aat back ao chesty and
complacent, threw one big fit that made
the walls of tha bazaar look like
demonstration ef tooth soap.
Frederick Elllston Brandt did it all
himself, and he used ninety-three skeins
of embroidery floas, and It didn't take
him long; it was pick-up work, you
know, and he worked at it In odd mo
ments; and, yea. it was the first work ha
had aver dona, and, no, ha Is not mar
ried and has no wife to come forward
with her photograph taken In a low
necked dress and the claim that by her
kindly encouragement aba made him
greaL He climbed to tha platform of
Fame supported and sustained alone by
his embroidery needle. No woman's hand
gave fclxn a boost.

thus the energy of a single ton of rsdlum
would suffice to propel a ship of 1S.000
tons burdn, with engines of U.CM horse

for a period of thirty years.
Tha only difficulty Is to find tha way to
accelerate the atomic disintegration. That
problem, at present, presents a blank
wall, which there seems to be no means
of surmounting. But let It once be solved
snd there sppeais to be no reason why
the rate of acceleration should not be
Indefinitely Increased, and radium or
some cognate substance, be turned Into
a source of mechanical energy, such as
ths world has never dresmed of.
Radium, It Is true, Is a very rare sub

as fstal to the supposition that ranio-
artlvltv mav some day be utilised as a
source of power. Dr. Oustav le Bon be
lieves thst he hs proved, and sir vwi
llatn Ramsay also admits the possibility,
thst all the chemical elements, wnen
plsoed under proper conditions, may ex-,

It Is a curious thing that the harvest

so much gayety. It la entirely dlffwont
from the gathering of, say. the potato
