The American 'Political Science
Association meeting in Washington
adopted a resolution introduced by
Prof R. C. Brooks ,of Swartmore,
which provides for a committee of
three to "examine and report upon
the. present situation in American
educational institutions as to liberty
of thought, freedom of speech and
security of tenure for teachers of
political science."
, This resolution contains dynamite.
The same resolution was introduced
andpassed at the annual meeting of
tT5e American Sociological Society
held a week ago at Minneapolis.
Prof. F. H. Giddings of Columbia
was the author in that caseY At the
same time and place the American
Economic Association adopted a sim similar

These three associations include
practically all the professors of ec economics

the movement which has developed
simultaneously in the. three bodies is
significant, it is really a move in
self-defense. It is the first evidence
of class-consciousness which will
eventually make the American ; uni universities
versities universities and colleges as free as are
the European centers of education.
According to privately, expressed
views of members of the American
Political Science Association, many
college professors who have been ac active

institutions with intimations that ac active

Wesleyan University was expelled
from the faculty after twenty-one
years at the college. His dismissal
followed the passage by the Connec Connecticut

compensation measure which Prof.
Fisher wrote and for which he lob lobbied,
bied, lobbied, Prof. Fisher's friends are in inclined
clined inclined to connect his dismissal with
his- work for that measure. Seven
universities refused to recommend a
successor to Prof. Fisher. :
Thomas Franklin Kane, president
oi the University of Washington, has been summarily removed from
office by the board of regents of the
' university, and it Is charged that his
removal is the direct result of the
fact that he had gathered around
him a corps of men and women re-

New York Newspaper Thinks That
Possibly There Is an Error in
the Present Process.

So much has been said and printed
about the very independent way pupils
in school now spell of course, there
were always bad spellers that the
reason for it should be known. A
dozen or more years ago a new
method of teaching spelling was de devised
vised devised and from one end of our educa educator
tor educator ridden country to the other was
practiced and favorably reported on. It
was called "visualiziation," and meant
that a mental picture was certainly
impressed on "the child's" mind by
merely looking at the word. It never
occurred to the visualizers that "the
child" had always looked at the word,
and that the drill they proposed to do
away with was all there was to the
spelling lesson.

The true cussedness of the fly sel seldom

He haunts doors and windows,
watching for a chance to slip inside.
He promenades over your face while
you are trying to get a beauty sleep
in the morning. He comes from gar garbage

every uncovered bit of food, and he
seems to take a fiendish pleasure in
drowning himself in the milk pitcher.

The fly loads himself with typhoid

that he may start an inflammation in

Fly swatting now is necessary, but

well growth to be destroyed. All that
can be done is to hold him in check,
starve him by covering all garbage
and stable litter, catch and kill him
when possible and resolve to make

He nodded dejectedly. "'Mistaken'

of manner and tone, he went on:
"Delia, no doubt you have noticed
the past two or three days that I have
been as worried as the dickens. It is
bad enough to have charge of this
boat and know that eomething secret
is going on, without having an inkling
of what that secret is; a fellow is
bound to make all sorts of conjectures
and be suspicious of Willard, you
know. The certainty that you couldn't
be mixed up with anything crooked is
the one thing that's made me rather
ashamed of my own suspicions.
"But I have reasons aside from all
this for being worried, reasons you
haven't the slightest idea of, that make
my position about as devilish a one as
a fellow ever got into. Until this week
I never knew I had any nerves; now
I'm nearly a wreck."

know more about the real cause of
your perturbation than you suspect."

L Fifty men saw X. M. Davis, as he
came to be known, when the bus drove
up to the inn "at Clifton with him as
the only passenger. He was a middle
aged man. and he had the face of a
true American patriot, lie had couie
to give Veruou county such a cbauve

to ber before. Vears ago his ;raud-.
father had died aud had beeu buried in
that county, aud it was 'consecrated

come to it instead of any other county.
Mr. Davis had come to Clifton direct
from Europe He bad goue over tbere
to study the agriculture of tbe couutry
at bis own expense. He had returned
with what might be called a gmit tiud.
The Belgiaus were almost secretly
growing a specimen of cucumber that
was bound to revolutionize the world.
It was amazingly prolific.
One acre of ground would grow ".' Ki
cucumbers, each three .feet long and
weighing five pounds.
It was like eating oranges. It was
a breakfast food in itself. It left be

This cucumber was certain, to take
the place of grains of all sort in a
year or two snore and would displace
tbe iK)tato"and tbe turnip entirely.
Mr. Davis did more than talk and
exhibit seeds. He put $."( cash in

then. Between November and April
Mr Davis sold over $3,(KR worth or
seeds and received his money forthein.
When he went away he went boldly,

picion. suspicion. Now came a mystery. In Clifton
lived a widow named Lee. She had
been there only two years, and the
people knew little about her. She was
nearly six feet tall, rugged and strong,
and she neighbored with none. She
went to Mr. Davis for some seeds, but
refused to pay the price. She offered
only a penny apiece and wbeu turned
dowu made use of some very strong
language. ;
April was a forward month in Ver Vernon
non Vernon county, and the cucumber vines
were beginning to run by the middle
of May. One night some one pulled
up and stacked the vines in ten dif different
ferent different gardens. They found tracks
of a man's boots, but nothing further.
The uext night more gardens suffered.
Just who to suspect was a puzzler,
but of course it was a case of jealousy
and spite. Every man who had any
vines set a watch on them.
Deacon Tracy was the first one to
report a clew. He had half an acre of
vines and was sitting up to watch
for the vandal when a man came sud suddenly
denly suddenly upon him and knocked him
senseless. When he recovered his wits
his vines hadbeen destroyed. Tracks
left by a man's boots that was all.
Of course there were excitement and
indignation. A reward of was
offered for the arrest of tbe marauder,
and owners of vines as yet untroubled
hired watchmen. Then the -man of
night betook himself out among the
farmers. He raided far and wide.
He destroyed nothing but the cucum cucumber
ber cucumber vines, but he did not spare a bill
of them that he could get at. He was
chased by men and dogs: be was shot
at: traps were set for him iu twenty
different places, yet no one earned
that reward.
At Farmer Johnson's place he and
his son were hidden in 'the smoke smokehouse

He had scarcely pulled a vine when
they were upon bim. Both were strong
men. but the struggle was over In a
minute. The unknown knocked them
both silly and got away with their
hats and pieces of their shirts as
souvenirs. It was figured that be had
got mch a scare, however, that be
would not appear again. He returned
next night when no one was watch watching

The excitment was now at fever

marauder came to his end. A widow
named Jones had twenty hills of vines
she was watching. She had an old
army carbine, and a neighbor had
loaded it for her. She was watching
from a window, and as the man of
night app4ared and began his work
she fired at him. He dropped, but
struggled up and ran.
A hundred men turned out and
searched the streets and alleys and
the country around, but they did not
find the wounded man. They had given
up tbe quest when word went round
that no one had seen the Widow Lee
for three days. The locked doors of
her bouse were broken r pen. and she
was found dead on the floor. A bullet

not one of the hundred boys had ever

that the worst.x Few of the English
