Quot honesty is the Best policy quot Fate unrighteousness upon the lowest possible Pune but is True even upon the basis of dollars and cents. We ought to understand even better than Franklin did because we have so Many More conspicuous examples of the failure of the Orost ingenious attempt to evade or circumvent the Law. New apportionment. Elected on the basis of the present apportionment in round numbers 173,000, the increase of population would necessitate the enlargement of the Congress Ive Hail. The present Hall is As full As can be. The increases or decreases in state representation Are decided by Congress and much depends upon How the next House is divided. If the republicans control the. Next House is Felt that the apportionment will be largely increased some Esti mates placing As High As 250,000, while the More conservative think ?.t 200,000 will be nearer the figure. With this latter figure As the apportion ment there would be changes made in the distribution of representatives. Nebraska which has gained Only �0000 in population would lose one Mem a r As would also Maine which has Gairld but ,000. Nevada which has fallen orf in population is Safe for she has univ one congressman now and cannot have , \ Ermont Kentucky. Maryland South Carolina Virginia Indiana Ohio and Minnesota would each lose a congressman. Pennsylvania would be the greatest gainer is the apportionment. She would add three to her quota giving her this to one congressmen. New York would gain two reaching a total of thirty six. Texas would also gain two and Illinois two m King her number Twenty four. Massachusetts and new Jersey would each gift one. Michigan Iowa and Wisconsin would neither gain nor lose. These would be the Only changes. The apportionment would add eleven to the representatives and subtract ten leaving a net gain of one. The boy problem. How Many parents in bar Harbor Are in close confidential relations with their ? where does your boy spend his time where does he play Are his companions Well chosen these Are pertinent questions. might be Safe to assume that the average Parent heaves a sigh of Relief when the boy is off tor school or when having returned he is induced to run out and play and when the shades of night appear he is bundled off to bed and the tired Mother secretly Hopes that the time will soon come when her boy will be less noisy and have More consideration for the Comfort of others. The boy is something to be endured not for any particular value that he has in himself but because he will by and by become a Man. Such a Conception does the boy an injustice. He is More than a Man in embryo he is an entity. He has within him certain characteristics Peculiar to himself and As such is worthy of far More attention than he usually receives. The boy of twelve or tit teen years is ust As much in a i device As a member of society in his spin re As the Man of Toily in his and the influence for weal or woe Anu no his Fellows is just As potent. I perhaps no feature of the Young men s Christian association work is More worthy of encouragement and support than is that of the Junior department. Kindergartens aim to Leach Young children and for the past Tifty years the association has sought to care for the Young Man of sixteen years and upwards but the boy has been left to himself largely because he has been misunderstood. Tiie great Opportunity for reaching him during the period of adolescence the most my Ressio Nable of his life has been overlooked. Keeping a semblance of order in sunday school under the Eye of his teacher for an hour per week is not Sulyic Keiit. The greater part of a life is spent in play in this he needs Wise instructions he needs companionship he should have placed before him the ideals of True manhood and who is More easily led or More willing to listen to sympathetic counsel than is the average rollicking whole souled boy for the past four years the Young men s Christian association has been giving increased attention to the boy problem and last year the aggregate membership was nearly 2400, coming under the influence of Bible and gymnasium classes of religious and social meetings. The local association in View of its importance has organized a Junior department under the supervision of a competent committee. has weekly Bible classes Semi weekly gymnasium classes separate Reading rooms and game rooms and social gatherings. The association Aims to create a health moral sentiment among the boys and to exercise an influence second Only to that of a in so Ian Home.
