: THE MONROE MONITOR--Monroe, Washington Page Three' Fri4ay, July 31, 1925. \\; V Latest Triumph in Railroading HE completion of tile new Chicago Union Station marks a note- worthy accomplishment in the history of important engineering undertakings, from which travelers from all parts of the United States will derive pleas- ure and benefit. The station is without doubt one of the finest and most efficiently designed railroad terminals in the world. It forms a vital link in the realization of the "Chicago City Beautiful Plan." Sim- plicity, accessibility and convenience for the traveling public are the essen- tial virtues of the new terminal. Rest and recreation rooms, ticket offices barber shop, dining rooms, stores of various kinds, and ahnost every con- venience known to travelers, are to be found on the one level, no steps to climb. The main station is a low monumen- tal type of building with a row of nasstve columns of classic design along the entire east front. Once in- side, the traveler finds himself in a gigantic waiting room more than 100 feet high and brilliantly lighted through skylights in the great arch ceiling. Colonnades inclose the room, the walls of which are patterned after the architecture of ancient Rome. Bor- dering this room are the ultra-complete passenger terminal facilities. An inno- vation in railway terminal design is a conference room accommodating 125 people, which is available, without charge, to patrons of the Union Sta- tion lines for conferences and other meetings. To give some idea of the immensity of the new station, it may be stated that the main building covers an area of about three acres with a concourse covering 60,000 square feet. The en- tire terminal facilities cover more than 35 acres and will expedite the prompt and satisfactory handling of 50,000 passengers, 400 tons of baggage and 300 trains daily with room for future expansion. Fifteen acres of glass were used in the various coverings over the train sheds, which extend more than 1,200 feet beyond the main structure. A total of 17,000 tons of structural steel, 175,000 cubic feet of Indiana limestone and 10,000 cubic feet of granite were used in the sta- tion building and concourse. The foun- dation consists of 449 cylindrical con- crete pihrs from four to ten feet in diameter, reaching to a depth Of more than 60 feet below the level of the Chicago river. Those who have had the privilege of inspecting the new station pro- nounce it a marvel in terminal con- structton and are urging their frtend to see it on their next visit to Chicago. The station is used Jointly by the Pennsylvania Railroad; Chicago, Mil- waukee & St. Paul Ry,; Chicago, Bur- lington & Quincy R. R., and the Chi- cago & Alton R. R.

IIB-00AN FOUNDDEAD + IN BED AT DAYTON Apoplexy Ends Career of the Great Commoner While Asleep. Dayton, Tenn.--William Jennings Bryan, three times presidential nom- inee of the democratic party, and known the world over for his elo- quence, died here Sunday afternoon. The end came while the great com- moner was asleep and was attributed by physicians to apoplexy. He had re- tired to his room shortly after eating  a large dinner to take a short rest. Mrs. Bryan sent the family chauffeur, Jim McCartney, to wake him about 4:30, and it was learned then that he vas dead. Physicians who examined the body expressed the opinion Mr. Bryan had been dead between 30 and 45 minutes before they arrived. The death oc- curred in the residence of Richard Rogers, which had been assigned to the Bryans during their stay here. Mr. Bryan's death came on the eve of another crusade he had planned to carry before the American people--a battle against modernism. He return- 'ed to Dayton Sunday morning after having made addresses Saturday at Jasper and Winchester, Tenn. Despite the strenuous program Mr. Bryan had been following as a mem- ber of the prosecution staff in the Scopes case and as leader of the fun- damentalists he appeared in excellent health. Shortly before Mr. Bryan entered fis room to rest he told his wife he had never felt better in his life, and was ready to go before the country to wage his fight in behalf of fundament- alism. Mr. Bryan was born in Salem, Ill., March 19, 1860. His father was Silas Lillard "Bryan, a native of Culpepper county, Virginia, a lawyer and judge. The son, after graduating from Illi- nois college in 1881 and Union College of Law, Chicago, in 1883, entered the law office of Lyman Trumbull, for- mer United States senator. Subse- quently he removed to Jacksonville, i Ill., where he practiced law until 1887, when he settled in Lincoln, Neb. The body of William Jennings Bry- an will be moved on a special railroad car from Dayton to Washington, and burial will be in Arlington National cemetery, Virginia. A spot high on the slope of Arlington, overlooking the capitol and near the monument erect- ed to those who died on the Maine, was tentatively selected as the burial place. Hundreds of tributes to William Jennings Bryan flooded the wires here Monday, coming from leaders high in national and international affairs, the one outstanding feature of all being DISTRIBUTION WITHOUT WASTE STORE NO. 273 ALL WEEK COMPARISON WILL TELL There's just one way to determine whether or not you are getting all your money will buy.

The court of eugenics needs a god to preside and there is no god to draft. Improving inher- ent weaknesses of boys must depend largely on the centuries and the law of evolution. Of course, environment can help some. The immediate par- ent is quite powerless. The next fundamental thing in the rearing of boys is the home. The boy apes his parents and if the father is a crook the boy is liable to be a crook. If the father is in hot pusrsuit of the butterfly the boy is liable to engage in the same practice. So the parent rears the boy by rearing himself. If the father fills the bottom of the box with small strawberries the son will not let it pass unobserved. Men are just grown up boys. The third fun- d'amental thing in the rearing of boys is the public school. The schools do much good and also considerable harm. The schools dq mch good in the way of teaching regular habits, promptness, discipline and efficiency: In fact, some boys have to depend almost entirely on the +schools for such teaching. They get little out of it at home. On the other hand the schools d'o considerable harm. The schools are necessarily filled with teachers who know notching about: the raising of boys and" of course much damage is done. Then there is the everlasting multitflicity of school activities that makes it im- possible to have regular home duties and work. As soon as the parent undertakes to fix out a schedule he runs amuck with the dances, clubs, societies, basketball, track, football, etc. Finally the parent wearies and gives up the struggle.

The first and foremost is inheritance. A boy inherits some weakness from vironment during his life. He must pleasure should be allowed to justify shirking. Every boy should be taught to obey. There must be discipline. Discipline comes from giving few or- ders, being certain that such orders as issued are just and tenable and then seeing that they are obeyed'. Giving senseless and inane orders, and constantly repeating orders with- out obeyance would ruin an angel. Nagging and scolding and whipping ruin many boys. Constantly scold- ing and nagging is frightful. Whip- ping is little better. There may be some occasions to paddle a small child a little, but if the parent can- not accomplish obedience without the use of a club he is lacking some- where. These statements are made with all due regard to the hickory gad idea. We have tried both ways. Another thing and perhaps the greatest thing that a parent can im- plant in the mind of a boy is that the only real and lasting happiness this world contains comes from a duty well performed. There is no other source. Happiness does not lie at the other end of the rainbow, nor at the end of an automobile trip, nor at the lake side, nor in endless games, nor in tiddlewinks. Happi- ness cannot be based on selfishness nor on another's woe. The crowning curse of the world in this pretty patch of eternity is the everlasting pursuit of a pleasure that no man finds. Happiness and peace of mind come only from duty well performed. Then there is ambition. Every boy should be taught so far as possible that he should do something in life worth while. Of course, all boys cannot be Lincolns or Cromwells or Alexanders, but they can hitch their wagons to some little star. Boys and men get nowhere without a goal There must be heights in life to the peaks of which they will climb. Tle sluggard in life gets nowhere. It is not a difficult task to kindle in a boy's mind the fires of ambition that lead to something better. Still let us call attention to one more thing by which boys may be helped. Every boy should be taught that progress comes from work. Work is the savior of men. Work is the means by which men get on in life. All this talk about overwork is mostly nonsense. Hard work alone hurts no man. Other things being equal, the men who have really attained big things in life have been hard and everlast- ing workers. Little dependence can be placed on accident, chance and miracle.
