Children are in Danger
PROTECT THEIR SCHOOLS American communities have suffered the actual horrors of schoolhouse fires. This costly lesson is unheeded in cities and villages without number.
In every community there are school buildings which lack full fire protection.
A Pyrene Fire Extinguisher will put out any fire in its early stages, even a gasoline or electric fire. A teacher or pupil can operate it. Pyrene puts out many a blaze while the fire department is “on the way."
A Pyrene extinguisher should be in every schoolroom and a Guardene soda-and-acid extinguisher in every hallway.
We are told all through childhood's formative years that we should always keep our tempers, and we are given examples like Sir Isaac Newton and his little dog Diamond and Patient Griselda, just as though they were equally applicable to the case; whereas, as I shall endeavor to show, they are poles apart. But, after all, who wants the same old temper all his life? Who can be sure that if he lost it he would not find a much nicer one? Above all, what person who contemplates the benefits won for himself and others by people's having lost their temper at the right time can dodge doing his share ? On the other hand, if the people who lose their tempers, anyhow, would but study doing so to the best advantage, who can tell what might not be gained thereby ? No one spends time or thought on how to do something which he does not want ever to do, like falling out of a third-story window or interfering between man and wife; but, though some very good people disapprove of dancing, most people feel that those who are going to dance anyhow should be taught to do it gracefully. Therefore I am about to lay down a few cardinal rules on this question of losing one's temper. It should be done
It should stay lost until the situation is remedied if it be remediable;
A better one should be recovered in its place;
The evil remedied and the temper recovered, the incident is dead, and there should be no post-mortems.
A word or two under each of these heads, like an old-time sermon.
It should be seldom, both because otherwise it loses all its effect and because it is really very tiresome to get angry. That is

why a great many people get the reputation of being good-tempered who in reality are only lazy. But I do not agree with the doctors who say that anger is always a poison. Righteous anger may be like an electrical storm and clear the air for miles around; and while all strong emotions are tiring, this is not considered ground on which to argue that love and ambition are poisons. A steady grouch is different; that I consider a malignant poison. A friend of mine whose family consists of several grown-ups once told me that they allow each member of the family. one unexplained grouch per month, to last not more than twenty-four hours. If there is a hangover the next day, the guilty member must either see the doctor or the priest (they are Roman Catholics). That seems to me eminently sane and reasonable ; no can go on being “ Pollyanna
» forever ; you let your pessimism come to a head, like a boil, prick it, and feel better.
Thoroughly. In the same formative years
of childhood we were told that whatever was worth doing at all was worth doing well. Not that we should swear and throw things, but that we should not let our anger evaporate until it has produced results. All emotion should be expressed in action, and our anger, having been aroused, should not leave any one in any doubt as to its getting what it is going after. When we are “mad clear through, we exercise a psychic power of which we ourselves and every one else with whom we come in contact are conscious.
At the right time. The right time is when there are means at hand of making our anger effectual. When you hear of graft or some dirty piece of double-dealing on the part of a politician, for instance, the right time to be angry is on election day. On the other hand, in private life, the right time to be angry is usually when the offense is committed. Many people, like all children and animals, have short memories, and do not really know what you are punishing them for except immeCliately after the fault.
To the right person. Here is where Sir Isaac Newton's patience comes in. To have beaten Diamond, the dog, for tearing his manuscript to pieces would have been unworthy of any just man, and tenfold more so in a philosopher. It is never right to lose one's temper with an irresponsible agent. It is cowardly to visit the shortcomings of a company on a helpless employee of that company. It is rude and unavailing to abuse a clerk or servant for a fault that is none of his, and it is still worse if you know in your heart that you would not dream of saying the same things to his employer. Hit as hard as you like, but hit some one on your own level.
It should stay lost until the situation is remedied if it be remediable. Most people's tempers are like fires of straw, flaring up and dying out before you have had time to Farm your fingers. Here is where my objection to Patient Griselda comes in. Not that her temper flared—that spineless creature does not seem to have possessed one; but that, having a remedy to her land, she preferred to endure every indignity rather than walk quietly out of the back door and leave the brute forever. I remember once hearing the late President Roosevelt speak of her in terms which voiced my own opinion of her and afterwards thanked him for it. “ And with everything else she was such a bad influ

HOW TO LOSE YOUR TEMPER
(Continued) ence for her husband, you know," he said. Where would we have been to-day without the people who lost their tempers in behalf of right and justice and never dreamed of recovering them until that particular evil had been spaded under? We reap the fruit of their labors; it is for us to tackle the problems of to-day in the same spirit.
A better one should be recovered in its place. Moralists would probably scout at this and say that whenever one is angry one has permanently warped one's disposition. I contend that this is not true. If you have observed the rules of losing your temper, and can feel that besides the relief of having worked off your emotion
you have accomplished something worth while for yourself and others, I believe that you are disposed to purr and that you will be peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated until another real wrong presents itself.
The evil remedied and the temper recovered, the incident is dead, and there should be no post-mortems. Even with the fear of the suffragists before my eyes, I must say that this part of my talk is directed especially to my own sex. If a woman loses money, she thinks for months thereafter of all she could have bought with it; I know that, because I do it myself. A man charges it off to profit and loss and forgets about it. And so in this matter of losing one's temper. It is proverbial that men shake hands after a fight and bear no malice. Again I am judging others by myself. I have had but one quarrel that resulted in my losing a friend since I have been grown up; that was eighteen years ago, and I could (though I won't) tell you all its details. Perhaps some clever
will invent a system for forgetting, similar to the various memory systems now on the market, to help those who, like myself, have ower gude memories.
A wiser man than any of this generation said that there was a time to be angry. When that time comes in your life, think of these seven rules and then be

A COMPANION TALE TO DAUDET'S “LA DERNIERE
CLASSE" I have recently read with great pleasure the story by Mr. Platt in the August 4 issue “The First Class.” This story, as doubtless many of your readers have informed you, is a worthy companion piece to Daudet's “La Dernière Classe," which latter story is a favorite of mine because of its great human interest. I use every year in class teaching the story by Daudet, and I shall now add this one by Platt; for the two very neatly summarize a halfcentury-lorg episode in French history.
