As for wheat, the United States has
exported the bearish part of its crop.

A liberal amount of corn exports is

sent the following congratulatory tel

employes to be benefitted by the pen
sion and disability plan inaugurated
by his company on Jan. 1, 1913:
To employes of the Western Ujion
Telegraph company, Western Electric
company and Bell telephone syBtem:
The new plan of benefits for disability
due to accidents or sickness, of insur
ance and of pensions, goes Into effect
with the new year: Nearly 200,000
njea and women who are now giving
their best years to the telephone and
te'.egraph service of the country will
henceforth be assured of assistance in
the exigencies of life, for which all
are not able to provide and will also
be assured of a provision for their de
It is but natural that evry employe
should desire to assume the normal
responsibilities of life and to surround
himself and those dependent upon him
witn tne tnmgs tnat make life com
plete and enjoyab'.e. Unforseen hap
penings may make these responsibill
ties heavy burdens and whatever may
be set aside for the day of misfortune
must in the beginning be small aid
accummulated slowly. A realization
that obligations must be met in times
of misfortune, as well as in times of
prosperity, has made the need of
something besides an old age pension
appear absolutely vital. Employers
buy and employes sell service. Per
feet service is only to be found when
fidelity and loyalty are reciprocal in
employer and employe. It is this re
lationship that brings satisfaction
and success to both.
The intent and purpose of the em
ployer in establishing a plan of bene
fits is to give tangible expression to
the reciprocity which means faithful
and loyal service on the part of the
employe, with protection from a'.l the
ordinary misfortunes to which he is
liable; reciprocity which means mu
tual regard for one another's interest
and welfare. This is justice, and with
out justice and sympathetic interest,
we cannot hope to do a thoroughly
good piece of work.

A beautiful Ceramic
Inverted Art Dome
The exterior of the
Reflector Bowl is decorated
,by ths famous Louwelsa
blend process in a deli
cately exquisite ming
ling of dull tones that
harmonize superbly with
the color scheme of any
room. The interior is lined
with a white glaze which
intensifies and reflects upon
the ceiling in a soft, rest
ful .glow the rays of the
incandescent electric lamps
concealed within the bowl.
A unique feature is the con
veniently detachable, invisible plug
in the bottom of the bowl which
can be quickly removed and a con
necting cord and plug attached,
permitting use of a table lamp or
cooking utensils. Then, too, there
is a socket concealed in the iridescent
shade at the end of the decorative cord.
Thus you are free to connect your elec
trical appliances directly to the bowl or
to the socket at the end of the orna
mental cord. The price of the bowl
alone is $38, with attached woven cord
and shade, $49.5C.
