W. H. Rice, Jr.,
A Huston banker when asked
the other day hw to reduce high
prices said "work another hour a
day." His idea was to increase
production and, thus, by catch
ing up with demand bring prices
Of course the Boston banker
might have amplified his advice
but if he didn't, he is a poor
economist. His advice would
stand if everyone would work an
extra hour a day without pay but
now-a-days no one will work with
If everyone worked an extra
hour and was paid for the extra
hour, it would, no doubt, increase
production but there would hard-
be a reduction of prices unless
the workers saved their pay for
that extra hour. That is the nub
of the whole question of prices.
hither production must be in
creased and demand held at the
present point, or production held
at its present level and demand
decreased. If production is in-
raised by working an extra hour
i day and the fruits of the extra
toil are spent the situation is
not changed one whit.
There is just one way to lower
prices. Stop buying things that
ire not vitally necessary and save
egularly. The United States
Government recognizes that and
asks the people of the United
States to help force prices down

money just as though it grew on

words; Johnnies say that 1 am

tilled with mirth, and they jeer
foreboding sages who predict a
day of dearth; but that day will
come as surely as tomorrow's sun
will rise; things will then be
going poorly with the giddy
spending thrift guys. Things
won't boom along forever as
they're booming now, my friends;
and the man who's truly clever
saves as ably as he spends. It is
patent to the knowing, in expen
sive times like these, that the
kopecks won't be growing always
on the shrubs and trees. There
will come a day of trouble, when
this boom is left behind, and the
kepeck and the ruble will be
mighty hard to find; happy then

'Kultur' Got on Actors' Nerves
Who started the World. War?
The Kaiser? The German
Junkers? Very likely both. Yet
the strange part played by a
woman in the greatest crime of
the ages is graphically portrayed
in the William Fox photodramu,
"Kultur," in which Gladys Brock
well will appear at the Tip Top
theatre on Wednesday.
They say that behind every
great event in history it is pos
sible to find a woman. So in
Kultur" it is shown that when
the Serbian Danilo slew the Aus
trian Archduke on that fateful
June day in 1914, and thereby
plunged the world into sorrow
and bloodshed, the beautiful
Countess Griselda (Gladys Brock
well), favorite of the aged I-jin-peror
Frauz Josef, was the person
who instigated the crime.
The Archduke, heir to the Aus
trian throne, is jealous of the in
fluence of the Countess over the
Kmperor and seeks to have her
removed from Vienna. But in
stead of banishing the old mon
arch's mistress, he himself is
slain through her machinations.
In the meantime, the Countess
has lost her heart to a youim
French secret service agent, and
the scenes that follow are replete
with plotting, intrigue and war
preparations in the Tueton capitals.
When the Frenchman is trapped
by German officials and faces
death as a spy, Griselda comes to
his rescur, aids him to escape, re
nounces her former connections
with the secret diplomacy of the
Teutons, and redeems herself by
giving her life for her lover and
for the cause of democracy.
If you wish to know the part
a woman played in starting tne
Great War, together with the in
trigues and private scandals of
the Imperial Courts at Berlin and
Vienna, see Gladys Brockwell in
"Kultur" at the Trp Top theatre

lust for gold leads until a terrible
dream awakens her.
Then the better woman asserts
itself. She runs to her husband
with great resolution only to find
that he already has gone down in
the crash of a Wall Street panic.
There, before the gaze of specu
lators, she makes the supreme
sacrifice she endures the abuse
