all law may bo encouraged. The remedy is to be sought in removing the cnuso which give rise to the
occasions on which the unwritten law
is appealed to and in raising popular
Ideals to the standard set by the statutes.
"If It really Is the function of tho
Legislature to embody In stntutory form
tho popular will wherever it makes It
self manifest, to bo consistent, we
hhould write upon our statute books a
law to the effect that our administrative officers may nullify or set aside such
laws as they see fit whenever In their
judgment it is tho wish of the commun

shall bo suspended.
Such a suggestion
may seem n little startling
though but the French have a simiinr
provision in their code."
In the last paragraph Prof. Roberts
says, " The task then Is one of restor

into the present reign of materialism.
This is not wholly the task of the church
and school for every organization or

but of the wonderful bird life represented within the state's boundaries.
"According to reliable estimates, more
than one million dollars is lost annually
in the United States on nccount of the
ravages of various insects." Some figures
were given to show that "we pay more to
