Allen months ago, while looking January number of the Lou- Review my atten- .Was strongly attracted by the Ig of an article, "The Beaver, Wildlife Citizen". I sup- noticed it first because the title ;ual, but my attention was because the beaver was carry that title. any good reason for it, I that this animal was Such distinction. Still, I sup- few of my neighbors or as- s, or fellow citizens in general have been any less surprised, because we have never given to the relative worth in e or relative value to us of dig kinds of wild animals. But, of our surprise would be due, to the fact that in the present the beaver has fallen so far Scurity that we may not even named for periods of months in the days when his .Was a common and familiar In every American household, :aver was not esteemed for the that Dr. W'illiam L. Finley as the basis for the high rank As a matter of fact, any nomination of this kind is likely to be difficult to support against opposition. Estimates concerning the value or importance of living things, no less than those con- cerning other things, are sure to dif- fer according to the experiences, in- terests and information of the per- son making the estinaate. For exam- ple, it ought to be evident to any of us, no matter how much we lack ex- perience, that an Indian of the far North who depends for his existence on caribou herds would claim that the caribou is foremost. Nevertheless, we may feel perfectly safe in thinking and saying that the beaver is an amazingly important animal in North America. ------O-- CIVIL SERVICE EXAMINATIONS The United States Civil Service Commission has announced open com- petitive examinations as follows: Engineering draftsmen, various grades (for work on ships), $1,620 to $2,600 a year.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCHES "Everlasting Punishment" was the subject of the Lesson-Sermon on Sun- day in Christian Science Society of Avalon, branch of Tile Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass. The Gold- en Text was from the Psahns: "Bless- ed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law." The Lesson-Sermon included these Bible verses from Ezekiel: "The word of the LORD came unto me again, sayiug .... The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the right- eous shall be upon him, and the wick- edness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath commit- ted, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live." Among the correlative passages from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, were the words: "Sin makes its own hell, and goodness its own heaven." ~'.
