Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria
who died the other day af the ago cf
*7 years and after an eventful and
tragic reign of over 68 years never
slept more than five hours a day. Jt
is said that he rose at 5 o'clock in
the morning and had a breakfast of
fresh boiled ham, rolls and coffee and
then strolled until 6 o'clock when he
began his day's work. That is theN
same prescription of Mr. Edison
the retention of youth and vigor. Little
sleeping, little eating and much
working. Then you do not find so
much time to give to your neighbor's
business and not so much for gossip.
It is a good prescription. 'Emperor

The Herald and News prints today
the statements of several of the bants i
of the county under the call mad?
.-of November 17. We have statements
from the four banks in the city an I
two in the county. The four banks
of the city make a fine showing and
so do the two from the county.
Take the c&ty banks and all of
them show a marked increase in the
amount of loans and deposits as compared
with the statements as made
under the September call. It
is not our purpose to make any
comparison a3 to the several i.anks
but if you will look at the statements
you will see th,it the four show a
" *A/v,A1>0 ? trttal I
total loan or $i,4uutivi.<o ciuu a tv |
deposit account of $1,446,970.69. And
all of them have a less amount, o"
money borrowed, the Commercial
showing none at all. The total is
only $114,760.16. All of them show I
a good amount carried to the surrmis j
account and a decided increase over
the amount as it appeared in the Septom-h?r
statement. The National Bank
has just doubled its surplus and un-j
divided profit account since Septem-j
These statements show a healthy j
financial condition and money should j
be cheaper. Comparing the loans with i
the deposits it verifies a statement
we saw once that a bank made money j
out of what it owed.
MY MASCOT FAILED.
My mascot failed me on last Sunday.
He may not have been entirely
to blame. It was partly the street
and maybe partly the fact that w?
? * I
should have remained at nome. auj i
way, we did not, and as we werei
driving along through the streets of J
Prosperity, and we were observing J
the speed law not to exceed ten!
miles the hour, a spring popped right;
in front of the Wise hotel. We had
started to St. Pauls Lutheran church)
for preaching. That is my old hom}|
church, you know, the church r t myj
childhood. And I always 7 e j go j
back and the older I gr< e -.lorej
fond I am going there tc i ing. J
Incidentally I was going to .iome:
of Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Werts v- Red") j
for dinner. Mrs. Werts, at the Pros-j
perity fair on Friday, had invited mei
ro?.f said j
to come anu unu6 *
they were going to kill hogs on Sat- j
urday morning, and, of course, I ac-i
cepted the invitation, and it was a
great disappointment to all of us that
we were denied the pleasure of eat- j
ing that dinner and spending a few!
hours with these good people. But
then it might have been a great deal
worse. The spring might have broken
when we were several miles away j
from a doctor or anywhere to stop, j
Any you recall it broke in front of
the Wise hotel. So I just unloaded f
therp and these people always have j
something good tc eat and we had a
good dinner with our cousins.
Mr .Tim Hunt came to our rescue;
and Firge Wise had a spring and with j
Mr. Hunt to put the spring on we
were ready to travel home as soon \
as we had dinner. Mr. Hunt was very j
nice about It and was more reason-j
able in his cearges than any automobile
fixer we have ever run against, J
and he did a good job.
We took 111 and the mascot backj
- in that country on Tuesday and wentj
over our new road from St. Pauls
fcy the old home and we are -pIeafle*Wto
see that the road is beir j * ised.;

a few hills on the road, but then there

gone, but the old house is still there,
and I am having it covered and uope

and the landscape and the beauty
of nature still remain and you look

of one of the most reliable concerns i
in the business. That is the common-!
sense car for me to buy."

big in capacity and very strongly

1:150 rounds or 53 pounds to every
horsepower developed by the motor.
It is sensible because it is oyer- j
tired. Tire manufacturers recommend
32x3 1-2 inch tires for 2200pound
cars. The Oakland Sensible
Six weighs 2150 pounds, yet it has
32x4-incli over-size tires. This means j
not only improved riding qualities,
but greatly increased tire mileage, j
