The public library is thus doing for the mental and moral health of the community much the same service as the government bu reaus established 'to protect society from impure food and drugs are do ing for its bodily health. In this capacity the library shows itself to be, in reality, not an ob ject of expense to taxpayers but a means of saving to them. Bvery thng that acts a check on the spread -f vicious ideas, helps in its degree to 'prevent vice, crime, pauperism, and degeneracy, and there is noth ing that is so expensive to taxpayers as these things. According to the Bible, woman had to coax man to eat; but you can take it from us, he just took to drink naturally. FOUR HUNDRED SEVENTY CARS WHEAT UP TO 17th Up to Saturday night, Sepijenv ber 17th, the Guymon grain dealers and elevator men had shipped out u cars or wneat to the various markets. This represents the. bulk of the business for this, year, but there will be two or three hundred cars more to go, and likewise strag gling shipments all during the fall and winter by those who may hold back for better priceB or for grub AND' ' , : " ( 1 SAND in r !i atmosphere of impoverished J stakes during the winter and spring, Mva. every man is enriched when the :v"r!d of idoas in which he moves is enviohed. Every influence that promotes thought, intelligence, that enriches or enlarges, the common stick if ideal of a community, makes life more valuable for everyone in thut c immunity: and every good look t!iat iroes out of the library it 'such an influence. A man is often enriched by the book his neighbor i readi as truly as by the book he v reads himself. Thv tviblic library provides the mean- by which exceptional minds lurve often bound thlir first awaken ing, resulting in productions which nave made life richer and better for hundreds and thousands of their fel lows. Often by ministering to a sin gle tenton the library is most ef fectively m'nfstering to its entire Constituency. Mny examples of this could h- oited from library annals. Some famers find it mighty conven ient to hold back a few hundred bushels of wheat and as time goes on they bring this to town in sihall quantities, and the sale of same enables them to meet incidental ex penses and keep even during the non-productive months.

Another old stand-by space filling story used by reporters for years has passed on. We refer to the one about the girl who rushed down the track, tore off her red petticoat, flagged train and prevented what might have been a terrible wreck. The modern girl doesn't wear enough clothes to flag a hand car. "Satisfaction is the object of a purchase not merely price. Quality is the thing out of which satisfac tion is created."
