GUIDE YOUR CHILDREN RIGHT
- Bad habits lead the children off the right path.
Good habits make of them honest, upright citizens.
The start is the important thing. And you
can help them at the beginning. Teach them to
save money. Make them admire thrift. Be an ex
ample to them by saving yourself.
Given a good start, the saving habit helps to
form other good habits, and proves a powerful fac
tor in bringing up the boy or girl in the right way.
Start the children right. Bring them to this
bank and open a savings account for them.

WAKES ONLY THE RIGHT MAN
Naw Alarm Clock That Should Prove
Boon in a Crowded Apartment
It really is not fair that a man,
obliged to get up in the morning in
response to a clock alarm, should sub
ject his wife to the Inconvenience of
being simultaneously and unnecessarily
awakened. Nevertheless, it often hap
pens that way.
A novel contrivance which gets over
this dltilculty is t"he idea of Charles
W. Waller of Chicago. It is an alarm
clock that will wake up one person

a rubber tube extends from the drum

who wishes to lie awakened at a given
The tube terminates in a pair of

fork-shaped arrangement that their
ends tire clasped within the ears of
the sleeping person. It is no serious
inconvenience, inasmuch as the flexi
ble rubber tube enables him to turn
over or move about In bed without
disturbing the ear pieces.
