WHERE HEARST HEADS IN.
One of the beauties of that postal law
requiring publications to publish the
names of stockholders, bondholders
and mortgagees is that it gives the
public a line on what influences are
back of a newspaper or magazine

gagees and other security holders,

WORRY. Worry is the great t
American habit. As a national pas
time baseball is a poor second.
Our peculiar civilization makes it
chronic. We are the champion wor
riers of the universe.
The African is happy; oriental fa
talism prevents a dissatisfaction with
the Asiatic; the European, in peace, (
is usually content.
But we worry because Jones next ,
door has an automobile. Our breth
ren of the other continentals would ,
merely accept Jones as a superior be
ing and let it go at that. We don't.
So we go on worrying because
Jones has an automobile, because ,
Mrs. Jones has a new gown and be
cause we may have some trouble
scraping together the money for next
month's rent and food bills. And we
know all the time that worrying
wont ever get us the motor car, the
gown, or ,py the rent; in fact, it
takes"away whatever little joy there ,
might he in living.
We know that it impairs our
health, destroys our efficiency and.
spoils our chances- of ever attaining
Yes, worry is a great thing for
doctors and undertakers!
