In the case mentioned above where
a local firm lost the trade of another
firm, the money spent in that line of
goods easily ran into the thousands in
a year, and even a small amount of
the total taken in would have paid a
competent man. But In trying to save
'a very few dollars the firm lost thou-
sands. No doubt there are many slm
ilar cases and if the business houses
are not now conscious of the fact It is
time for them to take notice.
In the hotels and restaurants the
same complaint , is made. In the
places where there is no private
switchboard a Japanese table boy usu
ally answers the telephone, and his
answer to almost , any question is
"Yes'. Then in the restaurants where
Japanese are employed as waiters it

i f SUBJECT- OF SERMON
At the Methodist- Episcopal Church
last night Rev.;Elmer Smith dellvered
ea the first of a series of forceful ier
mons on the important subject "Choos
ing a Wife. This advice was founded
on practical e very-day Judgment as
well as a ttudy of psychology and Its
relation jto the sexes, 'and a5 large
crowd gathered to heart the talk, on
subjects ' concerning the home and
private life of men and .women. .Mr.
Smith had chosen as his text "Wno so
findeth a wife, nndeth; good thing"
Prov. 18-22, and "A prudent wife Is
from the Lord" Prov. 19-24.
During jthe course of his sermon he
ssid: . . ' ; ? ; ,
Marriage, when two persons are
properly mated, is not only the normal
state of men but It Is the ideal state
ol man. Of course when people are
not properly mated marriage is far re
moved from the ideal. All people find
that love is bliss, but alas, some peo
ple find that marriage is a blister.
Some one has defined matrimony as
'that state which is a blessing to a
few, a curse to many and a great un
certainty to all. Another cynic de
clares that the only difference between ;
honeycomb and honeymoon is that the
former is a lot of little cells while the
latter is a great big sell. f
"The most terrible tragedy imagin
able is that of a pure, beautiful woman
innocently sacrificing herself on the al
ter of diseased and depraved manhood.
Such a man who folds in his slimy em
brace such a woman, is guilty before
God and men of the mot.t heinous
crimes. Any punishment in this world
or the next Is too good for him. Any
true man would reather see his daugh
ter go Into the Jaws of a man-eiting
shark or into the treacherous arms or
a giant octopus than into the matri
monial arms of a well-dressed, but rot
