Many a man is considered wise until a woman makes
a fool of him.
Give cheerfully and with a warm heart, but don't let
others help themselves.
The difference between the last war and the next one
will be principally the time intervening.
We have no doubt there are still some honest men left
in the world. At least tlhey claim to be.
If all people were made alike life would lose half of its
charm. There would be no desire to criticise.
Don't kick when. your wife gives you a piece of her
mind. Be thankful that she is too parsimonious to give it
The fellow without a dollar finds little satisfaction in
the fact that its purchasinig power is considerably great
er than it was a year ago.
If all people were required to live on what they
honestly earn we fear some of our illustrious millionaires
would starve to death.
Whenever we read of an American girl marrying a
foreign nobleman we can't help wondering how much she
paid for him.
We have no sympathy withl people who claim that life
is dull. Its ups and downs-are sufficient to keep any nor
mal mind occupied.
Most humorists are people who consider themselves
smart but are too dense to convert other people to their
way of thinking.
There are some jokes which though oft repeated, nev
er grow too old for consumption. For instance, congress
is again about to resurrect that hoary old bird known as
"readjusted compensation for the men who fought the
BRING OUT THE BRAINS
Our federal reserve board has kept this country from
passing through a disastrous panic during the past two
years. It will prevent others in the future, for it is the
safety valve to our monetary and banking systems. An
international body of this character, organized by the
great financial institutions of the various countries, would
do more to readjust the shattered and tottering monetary
system of the old world than all other elements combined.
If Europe will employ its brains along these lines and go
to work the threatened collapse can be averted, and stabil
ity and prosperity will eventually return. Insisting upon
the cancellation of war debts is childish and will avail
SOMETHING THIS TOWN NEEDS
There is something that this town needs-something
it is possible for us to have-something that would be for
the material benefit of each and every citizen. What is
that something? You have your ideas, and other people
have theirs, and it is even p~ossible that we may have ours,
but no one appears to know what the other fellow .thinks.
A good idea, if given p~ublicity, is valuable to every
one. If bottledi up in your own thinkery it is of little or no
avail. Why not let it out and give others an opportunity
to size it up, for the good of the community.
We will be glad to publish a number of such articles,
if our readers will take the'-trouble to write them. They
should set forth, briefly, the viewvs of the writers as to
what is most needed in this town. Who will contribute
the first idea?
CRITICISM AND NAGGING
Constructive criticism is beneficial to any community.
Nagging and fault finding are destructive. Yet both arc
to be found everywhere. Constructive criticism p~oints
out the weak spots in a scheme or undertaking in a fair
mindled but forceful manner. Nagging picks it to p~ieces
without reason or remedy.
Often a man is sincerely desirous of doing something
for the general improvement of the town in which he
lives. The improvement he advocates may be of no more
benefit to him than to any other citizen, yet there is in
variably someone ready to imp~ute a selfish or ulterior mo:
tive to his efforts. In tiyme such a man, if he is not endow
ed with extraordinary p~atience, becomes weary of repeat
ed nagging and ceases his efforts for the community good.
The town gains nothing from this nagging, but loses
much through the future apathy of the one whose loyal ef
forts were so unjustly attacked, Legitimate commenda
tion is a booster and a builder. Nagging is a grave dig
ger. 'Which is best for this community?
