Every corporation is personally directed either by some one dominant man or by some group of persons. Bornebody in particular is responsible for ordering or sanctioning (very illegal act committed by its agents or oflieers, but neither our law of personal damage nor our criminal law has nought to seek out the responsible persons and hold them accountable for the nets complained of. We have never attempted such statutes. We indict corporations themselves, find them guilty of illegal practices, tine then, and leave the individuals who devise and execute the illegal acts free to di cover new evasions. Jnleaa we can single out the individual again and make him once more the subject and object of law, we shall have to travel still further upon the road of government regulation which W8 have already traveled so far, and that road leads to state ownership. Of late years the house dlbr ) fly has been receiving mm iFht wo miit 3fe Daugrra By ANDREW WILSON.

It made itself obtrusive, buzzed about your ears and disturbed the general peace of the household, but it A'as certainly not regarded either as an enemy to our welfare, or as a deadly foe to health. Things are changed nowadays. A recently published report issued by the corporation of Uowin, ami emanating from the bacteriologist, serves to show forth the insanitary misdeeds of the household pest. The Govan report is modeled on lines which had already been represented in prior publications of the same nature. These reports lune been made both in Kurope and in America, and they serve to show the tlv in a new light, and in a very unfavorable one namely, a carrier of disease and a distributor of genus. The practical outcome of these investigations is lo open our eves to a source of infect ion which has hitherto received but little attention, or, at least, verj inadequate attention, having regard to the grave issues involved. Take, for example, the case of a very serious trouble, that known as "'infant cholera'" or "infantile summer diarrhoea." Here is a disease which in the hot season of the year kills off children under one year old in our great centers of population to an extent that is positively appalling. A literal massacre of the innocents occurs even summer among the seething masses chilof our cities. The mortality is among hand-fe- d children; breast-fe- d dren escape largely from attack. This latter fact points to the milk on which the children are fed as to the source of the ailment. The milk delivered to houses in a fresh condition rapidly acquires poisonous properties in the homes of the masses. It is not kept amidst a pure atmosphere, and as often as not is freely exposed to whatever contaminating influences surround it. Amongst these influences are dust containing numberless microbe! and flies, which, as we have seen, carry the very germs that, breeding in the milk, load it with poisonous principles. Then, when the children are fed on such milk, tlicv are literally poisoned, and fall victims lo the carelessness of those who are responsible for their welfare and who have not protected the infants' food from microbk attack. There is no end to the mischief which may thus he wrought by the ubiquitous fly. Typhoid genu are found in sewage, and it is possible that contamination of food by such germs may be carried nut, the tlv Bjcting as the medium of conveyance.

The educational campaign for in ternational X'aie has be- gun, and every teacher has a part to play in it. He should lend his aid to the organized educational efforts, for they will not move without his support. He should stand shoulder to shoulder with his fellow teachers in the world for the achievement of a higher world civilization. The teacher is an international BfUre, ami he can never perform his highest One function until he is imbued with this international consciousness. of the end of international teaching principles justice, peace, generation unity would revolutionize the world. This can be taught in literature, geography, history, and, in fad, in eery exercise connected with the school. Through geography, the children of the world should learn their true relations to other lands and peoples histon should show the aims and aspirations of the people of different nations, who, Wtffking together; are making modern history. The teaching of civil government should he supplemented by the teaching of international government, the child should become acquainted with the progressive steps in the making of a world government for only in thi way can he fully realize the significance of the administration of his own country. Such teaching will establish in the child modes of thinking, consistent with, the peace idea.

"If you want to tell whether or not the man you are talking to is telling the truth don't look him in the eyes." said a Denver bank teller to some friends. "It is the voice, when you don't look at the eyes, that tells you whether the other fellow is lying. We use the system frequently in the bank A man will come in to tell us sftme business tale. We look at his feet or his hands or his knees, but never in his eyes. If he's telling the truth his voice will be firm and straightforward, and the absence of your gaze in his eyes will not affect it. But if he's lying he'll be confused by your action, and his voice will tremble; he'll hem and haw, and clear his throat. You may rest assured then that he's stringing teg URE MOTHER wrrn IN COFFEE Until Too Stiff to Bend Over.

Long Time to Sweep. even a magnificent Everything, church, must be regarded from the point of view of the beholder. A London paper says that two country pirls, who acted as if they might be enjoying a holiday from domestic service, were observed walking down the aisles of St. Paul's Cathedral. Under the great dome one of them stood and gazed around her with an air of such wonder that a spectator might well suppose that she was awestruck But by her solemn surroundings. when she spoke, the idea was dissi"Oh, Sarah," she exclaimed, pated. "wouldn't this place take a long titn to sweep?" SOAKED IN DIP MAKING STACNOTH LOW COST. LCSS ' BliGHT DOUBLE "Most people," said the watchmaker, "wind their watches at night; but It would be better to wind them in the morning. You see, we are liable to go to bed at different hours, and so wind our watch at irregular intervals; and It is better to wind it regularly. Then we are more liable to forget to wind our watch at night than in the morning and so may let it run down. But we are pretty sure to get up in the morning at our regular hour, whatever the hour at which wa went to bed, and so by winding it then we may insure regularity of winding; and the watch is brought to mind then, when we put it on for use, and we are less likely to forget to wind it So morning is the best time to wind a watch, if you can get yourself into the habit of winding it then." To Keep Flowers Fresh. "If you want to bring flowers In town from the country," said the girl who goes out occasionally, "don't bring them in your hand. If it takes you two hours to come In they will never revive, no matter how much water you put on them after you get here. Take a pasteboard shoe box, lay wet paper in it, put the flowers in, sprinkle them well, and put another layer of paper over them. Just bring them home with you and they'll keep fresh and sweet in your flat or studio tor the longest kind of a time." you." Queer Idea of Enjoyment. Dr. Juliet Severance writes in the Vegetarian Magazine: "I am often reminded of a clinic case brought before the class when I was In medical college in 1858. The man had gout and rheumatism, both the small and large joints being immovable, and his suffering was severe. Dr. It. T. Trail, professor of theory and practice, was explaining to us the importance of a very strict and abstemious diet. The poor fellow tried vainly to turn his head, and grunted out: 'I can't go that; I want to enjoy life while I do live.' " NEW TRIUMPH A PLEASING HIS Which There Sarcasm.

A Chicago man who has been divorced three times and has a fourth wife suing him for alimony, gives it out that he is ready to try number five if she will reform him. Reform him from what marrying again? Judging from the face of the iceman, summer is now here. When a man's Sunday clothes look as though he had slept in them, he probably has been to church. A New York couple, who have inherited a great fortune, announce that they will not enter society, but will buy a country place and enjoy life. Wonders never cease! A Michigan editor says it Is strange that no one has ever written a text book on nothing. I guess he hasn't been reading this year's crop of popular fiction. A woman's long suit is a dress a la train. Did you ever know a man willing to admit that he had more money than brains? It Is beyond me to understand why a woman that wears and low shoes In winter and is just comfortable, can don clothing ethereal enough in summer to keep her In the same satisfactory condition. A great many men have spoiled a good career by hanging around the telephone receiver waiting for their peek-a-boo- s country's call.
