Jn 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

the total taken in would have paid a
competent man. But In trying to save
a very few dollars the firm lost thou

The principle talk of the aftrnoon
was given by Miss Esther Anderson,
who for five years was secretary of the
National Association, and Is now on
her way to the coast from association

ly on the Yi V. C. A. work in Austra

discussion was led by General Secre
tary '., Super, of which ' the topic was
"Jesus, and War." The principle point
was":lrhetherpr not war was in ac
cordance with the teachings of Jesus.
The ' War in Mexico, , Nicaragua and
the Balkans made the discussion time
ly and both sides were represented.
The personal consensus : of : opinion
was that there are ; occasions when
war is for the purpose of righting a
great wrong, as was the case in Cuba,
and that war was the only way, right
or wrong, to settle some dispute un

"CHOOSING A WIFE"
SUBJECT OF SERMON
VAt the Methodist Episcopal Church
last night Rev. Elmer Smith deltvered
eo the first of a series' of forceful ter
mons on the important subject "Choos
ing a Wife." This advice was founded
on "practical every-day Judgment as
well as a ttudy of psychology and its
relation, jto the sexes, and a large
crowd gathered to hear 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, tndeth a good thing"
Prov. 18-22, and "A prudent wife Is
horn the Lord" Prov. 19-24.
r During he course of his sermon he
."Marriage, when two persons are
properly mated. Is not only the normal
state of men but it Is the ideal state
oiTman.' 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.
