A llte~ary ~'discovery of Intere~t, 1ff mot of moment, Is reported from the Bodleian Library at Oxford. Some Imems of James I., in the king's own hand, have been found in the ,collee- Uon and are ,to ~be duly edited It ~is not expected that the monarch's po~tl- eel reputation will he greatly enhanced by the newly "found manuscripts. T.he right to refrain from reading them is a part of the freedom which Englishmen enjoy. If Mr. Edison,s recently developed improvements in electric storage bat. tories, by which the weight and the cost of operatlv~g them are redueed:mo~e than one-half, should .turn out as well as is now believed, the automobile business may be expected to grow rap- ~tdly. It is probable that in the eitfes motors will displace :horses for ;heavy trucking. In the country, where the keeping of!horses costs less, the change will be longer in coming. Barney Morris, Brooklyn,s ,best- known centenarian, ,celebrated the 109th anniversary of his 'birth the,oth- er day by getting to work in Prospect Park, where ~he its employed, :a little earlier than usual, says the New ~ork ~vening Post. ,Tie is as ~cttve as man of 60 years.and enjoys his outdoor work.

Much of this i~ ~med f~r ~m~king lan~W ~t the ~arb~r~ I~tmstonz in the British tmlffta,- ment have recently brought out most strikingly the backwardness of Eng- land, as compared with the rest of the civilized world, in providing free pub- lic school education. In Germany, tak- ing the average of the different prov- inces, a ehtld must attend school until he Is sixteen year~ old; in America he goes until he Is fifteen, and in many states still longer; but in England only until he is twelve. The English child ts releassd from school earlier, and, at best, is educated fewer years at the expense of the state than are the children of any other nation of the tlrst class except Russia. The d/scus- sions in parliament have been directed toward finding a remedy for this backwardness. Working girls in cities, who have to swelter through the summer in one stuffy room, would be fortunate indeed If rich women generally adopted a plan which a Boston woman is preparing to put into practice for the second time. She has a beautiful home, and when she went to her country house last year she offered five girls the use of the city place, together ~ith board and the services of her cook, for four dollars a week each. Imagine the delight with which they exchanged hall bedrooms and cheap restaurants for a large, airy house and a perfectly appointed table! "I think," said one of the girls at the end of the three months, "that this is the very first summer in my whole life that I have fully enjoyed myself." These were girls who would have re- sented any kind of help that savored of "charity," but the gracious deed that tm carefully guarded their independ- ence and their self-respect will be a happy, helpful memory all their lives long. Country folk would say that such an action was "neighborly." Per. haps at a higher stage of civilization people will see the truth more clearly, and call it simply Christian. The total annual production of tim- ber and firewood of the German for- ests Is estimated at 38,000,60 tons, and this Is supplemented by an import of 4,600,000 ton~. The material progress of the country w~uld not bs possibl~ had it not the large home production to fall back upon.
