Pew theories In regard to the prob
lems of war have been able to hoU
against the wild onslaught of the un
precedented conflict in Europe. Of
those to fall are some formed by ola
and wise bankers, who are supposed
to be prett good prophets. Based on
seemingly solid foundations several
financial theories have become mere il
lusions. It was held that the chief bankers
of the world could prevent a war be
tween nations by refusing to lend
their governments mone for prepara
tion and carring on of war This
would have been a Good theor
bad the nations asked their bankers
about the matter but they didn't.
Another pet notion was that there
was not enough mone to prosecute
such a war. This theor was based
on the figures obtained from the pre
vious wars, such as our Civil War,
when, toward the end, about $J,000,
(hui a day was the cost to the Govern
ment. The resources, however, of the
nations involved have increased in such
leaping bounds that the uiithought of
expenditure of $23,000,000 a da by
one nation for war can be easil sup
ported The present indication is
that lack of money will not stop the

"TVHIS story i said to have happened in a small town in Arkansas but it
- server to illustrate this experience in "liming in Columbia."
A little boy carrying a coal oil can went up to the proprietor
of a general store to have the can refilled. The proprietor was
dozing on an empty bov in front of the store. The little boy
stood around a while and finally touched the man's arm to attract
his attention. The man awoke with a start and demanded the
oungter's business. After the boy had told him he wanted a
gallon of coal oil, the store keeper grabbed the can and as he
started for the rear of the store grumbled :
"It's darn funny that nobodv in this town can sell coal oil but
A man who has lived in Columbia for the last two ) ears and who moved here
from an adjoining state said the thing that impressed him about several Columbia
-tores was the lack of attention that customers receive when they enter the store.
He then recited several experiences he had had when he had entered the front
door of store. He had been forced to wait several minutes before anybody no
ticed him and in one or two cases he had stood for some time and then left the
store in disgust At one place he had waited exactly five minutes and then fi
nally the proprietor of the store veiled from the back:
"Did vou want something?"
