Little is being said these days
about China and her new republic
This being the case it is safe to pre
dict that it is a success.
Listen to the appeal of the merch
ants throughout the entire country.
"Do your Christmas shopping early."
The newspapers have also taken up
the cry. It's a cry that should be
heeded by every loyal citizen. In
each case where it is possible to shop
early it should by all means be done.
There are enough people who must
wait until the last few days on ac
count of financial conditions, and
even these should make selections
early and meet their obligations
when they can. Do it now. The
merchant will appreciate it. The
clerks will appreciate it and the cus
tomer will appreciate the advantages
in so doing.
Poor Men and Opportunities
(Editorial from "The State.")
William H. Taft is the son of a
judge and for a large part of his life
was himself a judge. His parents
were able to educate him, but they
were not rich. Mr. Taft in his early
lite worked as a newspaper reporter.
Honest men in the service of the
public seldom accumulate fortunes.
When Mr. Taft was elected President
he was a poor man. It is said that
he was not worth more than five
thousand dollars. He will retire
from the office as a poor man though
his reputation as a lawyer and the
prestige attached to his public car
eer will probably enable him to make
lucrative connections as a lawyer.
But Mr. Taft will have to go to work
-just as any "common man" must
find another job when he has lost
Gov. Wilson is the son of a Pres
byterian minister. His parents
doubtless by strict economy and self
denial, were able to give him excel
lent school and college advantages.
After graduating from Princeton and
from the law department of the Uni
versity of Virginia, Mr. Wilson, in
a little while entered upon a career
of teaching. There is no money in
teachingat best, a fair livelihood
may be expected from it. A profes
sor or president of Princeton Univer
sity must be content to live comfort
ably and pay the premiums on his
life insurance policies unless he is
willing to live in niggardly manner.
Without any actual information as
to his financial condition, we believe
it safe to say that Governor Wilson
will into the White House wholly
dependent on his salary. Presidents
do not save from their salaries and
Mr. Wilson will return to private
life, some day a poor man.
From the careers of these two
men encouraging lessons may be
drawn. One is that even in these
times, when millionaires, in parts of
the country, are as common as pig
tracks and not especially uncommon
anywhere, a poor man may be elected
to the highest office in the country.
The other is that a young man with
a first rate education need set no
limit to his hororable ambition.
The "self-made man", without a col
lege education, may become Presi
dent of the United States, but the
examples of Taft and Wilson go far
to prove that university training
counts in any contest or struggle.
In contrast with these, Colonel
Roosevelt is perhaps the one man in
the history of our country who has
attained to the presidency and who
was born wealthyso wealthy that
never in his life was he compelled to
work for himself or his family. The
moral in his case seems to be that
even a rich man may get a "square
deal" in this land of opportunity.
Worthy of Toleration.
"I should think you would object to
your hust.aid going away on those
long fishing trips alone."
"I would, only he is always so meek
ly disposed to put up with almost any
thing for a while After he'gets bach
from one of them."

"Did that young lawyer indulge la
much circumlocution when he pro*
posed to you, Miss Rocksleigh?'"
"Yes, he tried to but of course 1
pushed his arm away every time. Toil

JUMPS ON RUSTY
While working on a well digging
machine a Minnesota man jumped
upon a rusty sidewalk spike. The
nail drove part of his black woolen
sock far up into his foot. He remov
ed as much of the sock as he could,
put on Allen's Ulcerine Salve, and
kept right on with his work. The
salve drew out parts of the sock and
all other poisons and in a week his
foot was healed up.
This salve is one of the oldest rem
edies in America and since 1869 it
has been known as the only salve
powerful enough to cure chronic
ulcers and old sores of long standing.
Allen's Ulcerine Salve acts by
drawing out the poisons and healing
the sore from the bottom up. It is
so powerful that it heals new cuts
and sores in one-third the time that
common salves and liniments take.
And it heals scalds and burns with
out a scar. Sold at Barker's Drug
