That boy of yours! He is one of
the most valuable assets you possess.

clear eyes of youth; but be will soon

cheap sensationalism or on glorious
ideals? Tour boy can feel himself one

A pioneer scout wears the uniform
of the Boy Scouts of America. He
studies all the fascinating details of
scoutcraft as described in the Boy
Scouts' Handbook. He learns the
scout salute, the scout sign, the scout
oath. He acquires the necessary
knowledge, takes the various tests,
and wins the promotions, awards and
merit badges. How these things ap appeal

day he observed a very tiny fellow
nearly dead. He picked it up, found It
covered with blue ticks and that It had
one of its paws crusnea. some one
must have trampled on It. He picked
the ticks all off and amputated the
little paw as well as he knew how.
Not being very skillful in that line he
had little hopes of it being a success successful

out of the extreme tip of its ear he
put It down in a little clover patch
thinking It would die; but every day
it gradually improved until at the end
of two months it disappeared. This
winter while cutting wood a mile from
where he found the rabbit, he noticed
tracks In the snow. Another man set
some wire snares and caught the rab

PARIS PREFERS LIGHTER
FORMS OF AMUSEMENT
Paris, Dec. 10. (By Mail to the
Associated Press). The people of
Paris spend a quarter of a billion
francs yearly on theaters and motion
pictures,, and do not care to do much
heavy thinking during the process.
Government statistics on last year's
receipts of every playhouse in Paris
warrant these statements, and at the
same time, supply interesting infor

Motion picture houses, which out
number the regular theaters three to
one, took in 50,000,000 francs in 1919,
rather more than did the theaters,
and a third of the total amusement
receipts. Last year, however, the
theaters took first places with re
ceipts of 86,000,000 francs, 11,000,000
more than the movies. This increase
seems to be due largely to the fact
that theatergoers "have modified their
oppositional attitude toward high
prices of admission and also by" a re revival

The government subsidized opera
and the Opera Comique, headed the
list with the largest receipts, each
taking in more than 9,000,000 francs,
and the serious Comedie Francaise
did well with 6,000,000 francs, but
these institutions are virtually with
out competition in -their field, and
they represent a big portion of the
money paid for the classics.

scenes always hinge on the presenta
tion of a group of handsome show
girls, tops the list of theaters, ex exceeding

WHY THE HERMIT

London, Dec. 11. (By Mail to the
