?MALLER AS WISE INVESTORS
RECEIVE INTEREST ON
Moro than one thousand million
dollars ha\3 been invested in Thrift
and War Savings Stamps and Treasury
Savings Certificates by wise and
thrifty persons iii this country, ac
cording to an official report recently
compiled. Of this amount, over $730,
000,000 is now outstanding, and In
vestments are steadily increasing. The
banner year, of course, was 1918, when
there was a strong patriotic appeal.
Total sales for 1918 wore $971,913,
000 During 1919, when the sales cam
paign was based on national thrift
rather than patriotism,, $165,300,000
was brought into tho Treasury, and in
1920 the total was $43,892,000. Re
demptions to date include $378,254,000
of the 1918 series, $33.441,000 of the
1919 series, $8,080,000 of the 1920 is
sues and about $135,000 of tho 1921
Ofllclnls of the savings division
point out that by far the greater pro
portion of the redemptions are of tho
1918 series, which Indicates that the
moro recent issues are being pur
chased by individuals who plan to hold
them to maturity.
The certificates pay 4 per cent in
terest, compounded quarterly, which is
equivalent to approximately 4 Vi per
cent, if held for the full five years.
Thoso who present the certificates for
redemption prior to the maturity date
receive about 3 per cont. Interest.

UNIFORM PRODUCTS FAVORED
Find Better Market, Bring Higher
Prices and Are Handled at Less
Expense Than Others.
Without uniform standards for farm
produce there is no recognized bnsls
; for the business of buying and selling,
says the bureau of markets, United
States Department Of Agriculture.
Standardization of products gives
seller and purchaser a common lan
guage and a set quality upon which
prices may be compared and fixed. Ex
! porlence has shown that the products
which are sold by grade find a better
market, bring letter prices, and can be
handled at less expense than thostvsold
without reference to standards. Stand
ards have already been fixed for many
farm commodities, such as American
j Upland cotton, shelled corn, wheat,
i .atts, and for small fruit containers.
j These Federal standards apply only
j when the product is intended for In
j terstate or foreign commerce. It ls
I highly Important to secure state co
i operation so that the provisions that
j apply to a few products will apply to
nil that are offered for sale.
