The rental of the building will probably pay more than tho expenses and the Interest on the money Invested, and the payments mi stock will Ih* devoted to paying the principal. How to Get a Horns Free. Your lirst payment gives you u home. That Is an - unreasonable statement. But let us argue with you, that is, give yon n few fuel** and thun we will see if it does not amount to that. In the tlrst place, let us suppose you ure a rent puyer, you are paying t:'.'.: ,,r t_i per month; though you pay this monthly rent for ten years or more, you neyer get a cent back nor have anything to show for It. In tbe second place. Suppose you have paid $400 down on a 12000 house and lot. and that you are paying each luonlh +2fi. Now this monthly payment merely takes the place of your usual rent money, atd is' no hardship, and yet It Is all the time paying for your house. So, is It not fair to presume that all it will cost you for a home ln Palo Alto Is your first payment? This way you will get something for each month's money, while tor rent money you get nothing. See - .1. J. Mounts, l'alo Alto, Cal. Local News. A two-story brick business building- is murn to lie erected ut Menlo l'urk, Frankie Ostrander who hus been III lor the past two weeks, is improving.

The steam schooner Caspar was wrecked off Point Arena Saturday and thirteen of the crew of fifteen were drowned. Mission Restoration. Steps are being tuken by citizens of San Joso to organize a club for the pur]*ose of restoring tho old Spanish missions. The Landmarks Club has done some good work ln this direction in Southern California- having during the past two years collected and expended 92800 in saving from ruin San Juan Caplstrano and Sun Luis Key missions. Tlie missions lu this part of the State need intelligent care to keep them from tiecoining ruins, and we trust the movement at Sun .lose will be successful in restoring these historic land marks. The project should receive the support of the people ol Pulo Alto and Stanford University. General News. Luotgert, the Chicago murderer, ill have a second trial this week, tbe jury having disagreed on the first trial. Twenty-eight persons were killed Sunday by a New York Central train plunging into tho Hudson river, by reason of an embnnknutot caving in. The yellow fever in the south shows an increase both In the numlier of case* and deaths. It is expected that eold *weather will soon come and cheek the plague.'

No stops have been taken lately in regard to the sewer proposition. The plans have been prepared, but the Town Trustees have ordered no further official action in the matter. The Interest* of Palo Alto require that steps should betaken to bring I lie question before the people for a discussion as to whether or not we will have sewers.

Why uotlieorlgl nal and choose a ">desthictlve name? And why "Alta California," which includes all of California north of the Mexican border, when tbe field to be exploited by theSun Joseclubis purely local? The writer has lived in Southern California and ln Northern Calitor- I niu, and the State is a whole to him— I it is California. Can we not for once see that It is better not to be childish, ] und stop silly wrangling. About Kindergartens. [COMMCMC.TKD) Captain Levering treated Private Hammond al Fort Levering. Prof. Earlston, the aeronaut who is well known here, has lieen in trouble j again,. this time at J'feasant on. He was arrested on a telegram from Tuolumne county, but owing to an informality could not lie held, und was set at liberty.

They were the children from whom were reculted the criminal classes. Ten thousand of these children were carefully watched and records kept of their after career. Only one of them wus ever arrested, and he was discharged. No such showing can be made by the schools which omit this early culture and give reading, writing and arithmetic as the bread of life. These kindergartens did not teach a letter. Arena. Phillip Brooks says: "He who helps a child helps humanity with a distinctness, with an Immediatuness, which no other help given to human creatureslu any other stage'of their life can possibly give again." "The kindergarten movement Is reform, not merely a fad. Reforms grow their roots under the soil as well as above ground, and their growth cannot be measured a day at a time with the naked eye."
