This will be of particular benefit to
the farmers who have joined the local
system. Although the Weather bureau
is often Jokingly twittered as to the
incorrect prophecies which they some
time make, it has come to be realized
that In the great majority of cases
their predictions come true. . The val

MONEY TALKS; L!FE ~Ll ST E N S
Man Bonsts of Owning Wealth. When
He Is Really Its Abject
Money talks and life listens as it
listens not to the tongue of men or of
angels. Hut when money, the means
of life, becomes the end. the end to tdl
intents and purposes it is. Then doo9
the man of means, king of a vasty
realm, abdicate In favor of the slave.
None Is so poor as he that Is pos
sessed of his possession; none so con
temptible as he that abjectly serves
his servant. Money is an old servant
of man's, forever forgetting Its placo
and going unrebuked. Never to have
taken orders from It or "back talk" Is
to be a master Indeed.
1 Nothing is more common than to*
hear a man bo&st of his money. Is It
hiB? Rather, he Is its. It Is a thing
of authority. It salth to one man,
?'Go," and he goeth; to another,
"Come," and he cometh, and to Its ser
vant, "Do this," and this he doeth. At
Its word, n-.an jumps out of his sick
bed, Jostles his bosom friend, breaks
an appointment with love, lets music
come and go unheard, beauty unseen.
L?8t money should talk to him like the
green of the earth, the blue of th? sky,
Jealous mistress it is. ho forgoes tho
gTeen of the earth, the blue of the sky,
flowers and the songs of birds. The
voice of hiB old playmate, tho river,
calls to him in vain; the mother
tongue of wind and wave is no longer
oven a memory; tho meaning of pleas
ure is lost to him. All this for
money's sake.?Smart Set.
