CHICKEN NE WO.
"Well," said Miss White Chicken,
.'what is the news?"
"News," said Mrs. White Hen, "li
always interesting. Who knows any
There were a number of white
chickens and white hens sitting one
afternoon on a hot summer day under a
big shady tree. They were trying to
get cool, for tlri>y felt quite warm,
though they looked nice und cool and
summery in their pretty whit? fearh
"I know some news," sold Mrs. tlnow
"Tell it to us," said the other hens
"There ore some relations of ours
who are boiug brought up in great
luxury," auld Mrs. Snow Hen.
She had been so named because ber
feathers looked even whiter than the
feathers of tho others.
"What does luxury mean?" asked
Miss White Chicken.
"Yes, cackle, cackle, what does lt
mean?" asked Mrs. White Hen.
"Luxury," snld Mrs. Snow Hen,
"means riches and such things. Whee
a creature is living lu luxury lt means
that creature ls living among rich
people and things and having every
thing about that costs lots of money."
"Xs lt pleasant to live that way?"
asked Miss White Chicken.
"Many think so," said Mrs. Snow
Hen, "but I've never noticed that lt
made much difference. Sometimes lt
seems to make thom sad, for they find
they've lost a lot of other things by
the roadside as they've been looking
for riches and luxury."
"Can one pick up riches and luxury
as one can seeds?" asked Mrs. White
"No, not exactly," said Mrs. Snow
"And what do they lose by th? way?"
asked Miss White Chicken.
"Oh, they lose all sorts of things,
like knowing how to have a good time,
and they forget all the pleasures they
used to ha vt; in a simple way until
they've found that tba pleasures
which cost a great deal don't always
mean so much at all.
"But, pray do not ask ma to tell you
too much about luxury and riches, for
I don't know much about them. I'm
glad I am a regular chicken, though.
"I Knew Som? New?."
and not too superior, for I'd hut? to
live In Just such a way and eat Just
such food all the time.
"These relations of ours belong te
some very, very, very wealthy people.
"The hens and chickens themselves
didn't make the money, you ?ee.
"There are three hundred of our
relations, though, who live in this fine
"In the winter time they live In a
chicken house which has steam heat
and olectric lights and running water.
They eat Just stich seed and they
aren't allowed to go wandering off any
where for food.
"Of course some things about such
a life may he very pleasant, but lt ls
too lacking lu adventure to suit rae.
"I've heard Dash, the dog, telling
some of his dog friends that he
wouldn't be a little petted dog on a
silken cushion, who was fed cream
whenever he wanted it, for anything.
"Dash says he likes to be a regular
dog and have people love him and care
for him, but he doesn't want to be
treated like a little lap dog, who yelps
for everything he wants, and often fo,
what he doesn't want.
"I don't envy our fine relations In
the least, hut one thing I must say for
"What is that?" asked Mrs. White
"Do tell us," said Miss White
"Yes, pray tell us," said the other
white chickens and wldto bens. '
"Our relations aro Just the same,
oven though they live In sud? luxury
and amidst such riches," said Mrs.
Snow Hen. "They cackle and cluck
and talk In Just the same style; they're
not affected and they're not in tho
lenst stuck np. That ls one thing very
much In their favor, and lt also shows
their good sense. That is tho news I
have for you."
No Two Alike.
No two roses In thc garden are Just
alike, and that ls one of the secrota
of their charm. The little Irregularities
of handwork are always preferable
to the precision of a machine. Thc
girl who trios to be like some one else,
Instead of being Just herself, ls sa-M inc

A FARM KU'S (?I Kl/.
(Written by a Farmer's Daughter.)
Editor Keowce Courier:
'Please allow mo space in which
tho following lines may appear in
our valuable paper.
A Farmer's Daughter.
I'll tell you about the farmer's girl;
She has much work to do,
She cannot wear her hair in curl
As her town Kiri sisters do.
She cannot go to school much
'And get great, education,
But she knows how to do
Any kind of work on the old plan
Her smiling face is always sweet
.Because she does not paint;
And when she's told some work to do
She does not say, "I can't."
She simply says, "I'll try
My very best to do,"
And then starts in cheerfully
She always succeeds, too.
She can harness the team and drive
Though lt may be a shock to you.
She can run tho reaper and gather
And be a lady, too.
She proves a blessing to her mother,
She's a favorite with dad;
And when sho has visitors
She tries to make them glad.
Her education is limited;
For it she has to strive;
But she'll fill her mission in life
As sure as you're alive.
Sl?o takes exercise, too,
And she can sew and cook
But she did not have to go to school
To learn lt from a book.
This story, true, is very brief,
Describing the farm girl pure,
And if you will only visit her,
You'll find these facts are sure.
Now, town cousins, you may say,
"I don't believe that's true,"
But if you would prove lt to me
Just let me hoar from you.

SMALL TRAGT OF LAND HUI NOS
Millions - Rental of Broadway Lot
H Igest in History of Manhattan.
New York, June 3. - Manhattan
Island, once sold by an Indian for
$24 and a few drinks of ."firewater,"
has become so valuable that a tiny
plot only 31 feet along Broadway re
cently was leased for an annual ren
tal of about $33 a square foot. Real
estato men said this was the highest
figure for which Jand was ever rented
The site ls at Broadway and 34th
street, and extends about 50 feet
along the latter. Several years ago
a department store wished to buy
the corner plot, having procured tho
land on both sides, as the site for a
sky-scraper. But the owner would
not soil, even for $1,000,000, and tho
big store had to erect its home
around tho small building.
?A four-story structure, bousing on
tho ground door a busy cigar storo,
still remains on tho valuable corner
lot, on all sides lofty buildings rear
ing their bulks of steol and stone.
The new lessee, who will pay $3,500,
?00 for rent, taxes and other ex
penses over a 21-yoar period', plans
to erect a narrow sky-scraper on the
triangular plot. A candy-making cor
poration will occupy the building.
Twenty-one years ago Robert S.
iSmith, who owns the property, start
led realty men by paying $387,000
for the land, which has only 1,2 5 0
square feet of aroa. He had come to
America with $5.75 from his native
Russia in 18S0. When he bought the
property ho was told such a small
strip of land was not worth the price
and could never be profitable.
Within a few hours after the $3,
500,000 lease was drawn up another
candy concern offered $10,000 more

SCHOOL SAVERS ARE |
DOING SPLENDID WORK ?
IN THRIFT CAMPAIGN
MANY* SOCIETIES FORMED AND
M ? M SERS ARE NOW BUSILY
''WATCHING THEIR MONEY
Teachers and children are enthu
siastic over the new thrift spirit In
the school room, which has already
resulted not only in giving a novel and
practical interest to time honored sub
jects, but in tho organisation of ap
proximately 11,000 school savings
clubs in the schools of this district.
Last year the gross sales of Thrift and
War Savings Stamps and Treasury
Savings Cert lil ca tes in the ?ftb dis
trict amounted to more than $2.316,Ooo
during the school session, and it is
hoped that when the figures are com
piled for the 1920-1921 session, an
even better record will be shown.
Thousands of penny and niokel sav
ings books, text leaflets in tbrift and
wall charts for showing the records of
savings clubs have been mailed out to
schools asking for them. Boys and
girls are learning to put their money
into government savings securities in
stead of wasting il, and in order that
they may not look upon savings as an
end in itself, and gain a false concep
tion of thrift as a form of stinginess,
they are' encouraged to save for a o mo
definite, worth-while object such, for
Instance, as a college education or
Saving is only a third of tho game,
however, for the youngsters earn much
of the money they save and invest in
Thrift and Savings Stamps. Weeding
tobacco, running errands, clerking in
stores, washing dishes, raising vege
tables and live stock are some of the
callings in which ?chool savings club
members engage during summer vaca
tions and after school hours, and keen
is the rivalry among them.
Even tho smallest tots are taking an
active part in the "Earn and Save"
movement, and patriotic teachers who
understand the value of thrift as an
element of good citizenship are devot
ing their time and thought to making
lt part of their educational work, and
are also encouraging the organization
of savings clubs by the children them
selves. They realizo that they an
rendering a real service to the countr>
by teaching sound economic thought

GIVING SPLENDID AID
Postmasters are giving splendid
co-operation ia the effort to create
new capital by Increasing the num

savings securities. Approximately
300,000 letters have been distributed
by them since the middle of Feb
ruary to patrons of their offices,
through post office boxes or by
means of the regular carriers, call
ing attention to the fact that the
man who saves even a dollar out
of his Income has to that extent
become a capitalist, and to the ab
solute safety of government securi

congratulated . not only for helping
to finance tho government but for
making their influence felt in be
half of tho welfare of their own
communities. Distribution of these
