Senator Parry says: “Business is depressed, wages are coming down, but the costs of government seem to be ever mounting upward. On a per capita basis each person in the United States would pay slightly less than $43 each year, or $214 for a family of five, for the expenses of our national government. In addition to that each per son in the state of New Jersey would pay for the ex penses of our local and state governments, at the rate of $34 per annum, or $170 for a family of five. The cost of government to each person in New Jersey, therefore, averages $77, or $375 for each family of five. When it is costing the average head of a family of five over a dollar a day, including Sundays, for the j expenses of government, it is time to sit up and take notice.” As the Evening News declared at the very beginning of the campaign, economy is the main issue this year. But how cftn we impress the legislators with the need of strict econ omy in government affairs if we deliberately vote them more millions to spend every time they ask for the money? Out j of the waste and extravagance now so prevalent in govern ment affairs much of the work that this $14,000,000 would be spent for could be done. But it is so much easier to bor row money through the issuing of bonds to gratify present desires at the expense of the future that the government of V^oials will always try to secure a bond issue if they can. 1 B\lt, thanks to the foresight of the framers of the state con stitution, the state cannot be bonded for more than $100,000 without the consent of the people. Hence the referendum at the coming election. ' , One of the ways to express your demand for economy ; in government affairs is to vote “no" on the $i i.000.000 j bond issue on November 8. j _ 1 MORGAN F. LARSON It hardly seems necessary here in Perth Amboy and j vicinity to point out the qualifications of Morgan F. Larson ; for state senator, which office he is seeking on the Republi- i aiis fall. Mr. Larson is so well and so favorably j that it goes without saying that he will receive is vote. He is a son of Perth Amboy in every word. He grew up here and has always been1 identified with the local activities. He is one, J rs in his chosen profession of engineering, has j in excellent reputation both in private and pub- i ■ _will, without a jloubt., make a high class repre-', tentative of the people in the state legislature. There is no man, perhaps, who knows Middlesex county > better or is more interested in its welfare. Also, there is no ; man who will work harder or more conscientiously for his constituents than will Mr. Larson. Knowing his ability as p vve do, we do not hesitate to say that the people of this county cannot get a better representative that Mr. Larson. Our only regret is that it is not possible to secure men of such calibre for public office all the time. As far as Perth Amboy and vicinity is concerned there is no doubt as to the .outcome of the election as far as it effects Mr. Larson. His candidacy is more than a political issue- People are going to vote for him here regardless of politics. If he does not go out of Perth Amboy with a ma jority of over 2.000 we shall be sadly disappointed. For the rest of the county where Mr. Larson may not be so well known, but where nothing but that which is favorable has been heard about him since his candidacy was announced, we can but repeat that a vote for Morgan F. Larson for state j senator this fall will be a vote for a clean cut, honest and capable young man who would be a credit to any community or county; a man of the highest type, standing for all that is V best and decent in public afTairs; a man of character and sterling worth—one whom the best citizens should be glad toto vote for. In saying this about Mr. Larson we are not in the least attempting to disparage Mr. Larson’s opponent in this elec tion who is also a young man of high principles having the respect of all who know him and who has already represen x ted this county with distinction in the lower house of the legislature. But knowing Mr. Larson as we do and the high . personal regard held for him among those with whom he is mose closely associated, it is evident that he is going to be given their unanimous support. — THE STRIKE SETTLED By* calling off the railroad strike the leaders of the rail road brotherhoods have done the only thing they* could do and hold the respect of the public. No matter how much the people might sympathize with the railroad employes, it was impossible to support them in their attempt to demoralize I he industries of the country and bring untold suffering into thousands of homes as the tying up of all transportation would mean. After all, this country is just what the people make it. Such a strike as the railroad brotherhoods contemplated was ft -a strike against themselves and their friends and neighbors as well as against the railroad management. In fact, the public generally would have been the greatest sufferers. To read of the steps being taken by the ditt'erent cities to provide for the inhabitants thereof while the strike was on sounded like the preparation for some siege or blockade that was listened by an outside enemy. It was impossible to believe that these preparations were being made against the action of men who pose as our friends and neighbors.

Oct. 28.—The ureation of public duck-hunting [fiarsheg, where the game will be •clentitieally protected as it is In the treat private hunting club grounds, jut where any citizen of the United States may hunt in the open season >y paying one dollar to the federal tovernment, is now being urged by he secretary of agriculture. The plan is embodied in a bill vhich has been introduced in the he House by Representative An hony and in the senate by Senator few. If it does not pass, it will •robably be because of the failure of American sportsmen to hear about t and demand its passage, for it irill h£jin undoubted boon to them. Good hunting and a free range is vhat the measure means to the four >r five millions of American gunners, >ut it means a good deal more than hat to the government scientists vho have framed it. They say ag iculture requires that a large part >f the remaining marsh lands and >onds in this country be kept in their latural state. If the drainage of hem goes steadily on, the internal ■conomy of the soil is going to suf er. TMb nrncnmnhlu HriPQ llrtt o the costal regions of tlV South, vhere the whole country Is one vast iwamp for miles and miles. But hroughout the New England and diddle Atlantic states, the Middle Vest and West, ponds and marshes lave become steadily fewer for many years. Most of them have >een drained and converted Into arm lands and factory sites. Even :he great swamp wildernesses of he South, which begin with the Dismal Swamp south of Norfolk, Virginia, and extend In an almost jnbroken strip to the end of the Everglades in Florida, are beginning :o be invaded by the drainage canal ind the settler. Drainage Makes Driimli. This drainage of swamps was long regarded as a good thing, and up to a certain point it Is, but the ex perts have found that when nearly all of the ponds and marshes in a given region have been drained, the land is impoverished. The water table—that is, the level of the un derground water—falls. This makes the region more susceptible to drouth. It affects the growth of for ests and the flow of A^reams. It upsets the balance of nature. If this drainage goes on unchecked the ag ricultural value of great areas of land will be impaired. Furthermore, the experts point out that if these marshes and ponds are rightly used, they often produce more than the land under them would produce if drained. If the tak ing of these creatures is controlled so that they are kept at a maximum abundance, a marsh or pond may make a considerable yield per acre In fish and fur, not to mention wild fowl. Many marshes In addition yield grasses valuable as hay, and in manufactures. Marshes and ponds give a supply of natural ice. In a word, such a water area, rightly used, Is a great asset to a communi ty, and indiscriminate drainage is as short - sighted as indiscriminate cutting of timber to make new fields. Besides these considerations, marshes and ponds are necessary to the success of the migratory bird law. This law’, which protects the wild fowl and other migratory birds in their spring flight northward, has already succeeded to the extent that it has made wild fowl more abun dant than they have been In a cen tury. It has enabled them to reach their northern breeding grounds without molestation in the spring. But their haunts in this country, when they return South in the fall, have been greatly restricted. The wild duck is In the position of being all protected and no place to go. Costs Money to Hunt. Then again, an increasing number of the places where ducks winter are privately owned and controlled, and the demand for private hunting grounds by clubs and wealthy indi viduals is on the increase. In many cases whole marshes are owned. In other cases, where the areas invol ved are too large far ownership, like Back Bay, Virginia, clubs own nearly all of the desirable water frontage, and all of the best points upon which blinds may be built. The chances for the poor man to go duck hunting are becoming steadily slim mer. For one who does not belong 0 a club, good duck hunting coats ;rom *10 to *20 a day, including the juide. a motorboat, a sink-box and 1 fleet of decoys. The number of the places where you can go out in your pwn boat and paddle about with any hope of getting a shot Is very small. The Anthony-New bill provides that the Department of Agriculture shall buy or rent suitable areas of ponds and marshes In all of the states. The maintenance of these preserves is to be paid for by a fed eral hunting license of *1.00, to be paid by every citizen who shoots over the government preserves. These areas are to be scientifically administered. They will be stocked with fish, and the plants which fur nish the best food for wild fowl will be introduced. The birds will bo chrefully protected In the closed seasons, and the areas will be public hunting grounds In the open sea son. They will also furnish good tishing, swimming and camping. They will be places where school children can go for picnics and for purposes of nature study. Many picturesque regions, which otherwise would soon be drained, will be saved by this measure If It becomes a law. The famous Kan kakee marshes In Indiana, for ex ample, which have been a favorite resort of sportsmen and naturalists for a hundred years, would be an excellent area for government ad ministration. BY I»R. R. H. BISHOP Tuberculosis comes into almost 1 everyone’s life at some time. Few households escape it entirely. Per haps no immediate member of your family has fallen a victim, to this dread disease, but the ract that all of us have the germs of tuber culosis in our bodies waiting until some time when our systems ere weakened, should give us pause. ’’The great white plague of the ' north,’* as Oliver Wendell Holmes once called this disease, kills ap proximately 160,000 persons each year in the United States. Every third person between 15 and 60 dies of it or every fourth person be tween 20 and 40. It disables and renders useless those who have it and often beggars their families. It costs in loss of life and labor in the United States 500 million dollars. These facts should make a person having suspicious symptoms stop and consider. Tuberculosis, if caught in its early stage, can be ured, but left to develop. It Is in incible. The person having eerly tuber ulosla may not suspect it or even mow that he is ill. Here are cer ftin signs however, which should irompi the intelligent person to teelc expert examination. These signs are: 1. Weariness out of proportion to he day's work, especially when it ippears in a person usually ener getic and active. 2. Cough. Tuberculosis may ex st and become far advanced wlth >ut cough or the cough may not be nore than a slight tendency to clear :he throat. Any cough or necessity lor clearing the throat frequently hat lasts more than two or three veeks should be looked upon with suspicion. x 3. Loss of appetite or a finicky ippetite. 4. Loss of weight, not otherwise iccounted for. 5. Slight fever in the afternoon. 6.. Shortness of breath, especial ly on slight exertion, may often be in early symptom. 7. Continued hoarseness or less 3f voice should have immediate at tention. 8. Digestive disturbances always iccompany tuberculosis. 9. Blood In the spit rarely occurs In any other condition than that of tuberculosis. Even slightly streaked spit should cause the patient to seek medical advice. !l ii DRAMA NEEDS THE AID OF THE CHURCH nr IjF.ya ashwffl Famous Fngllsh Actress | The drama Is an art which Is either In Its death throes or on the eve of being reborn. The two great means of attaining knowledge are through the Intellect and the heart. For a long time It has been over looked by many that the drama Is a very potent force In attaining knowledge. The higher emotions—esthetic, religious nnd moral—are educated through the feeling? as well as through the Intellect. As Intellect is lit up by emotion, real knowledge Is attained. In the theatre, when It Is what It ought to be. you have the emotions seen In action. But the modern theatre is very largely di vorced from real emotion. It Is superficial. It deals with the mere surface of human emotions instead of being deep-rooted in the real re ligious life of the community. It is not the actor's fault If he has to appear In the stupid, banal and Idiotic works which the public seems to enjoy. The standard today is on a money basis. The measure of what can be done Is the measure of what can be got in the box office. This is wrong, because you can not keep a money value when you are dealing with the human heart. I ----- Fart of the trouble la the vogue of the cinema which has given the people what St. John Ervlne calls the paragraph mind and the movie motive. During the war many of our ac tors went to the front and played the beet plays to entertain the men. They came back with tlvs conviction that they were really important ser vants of the community; that there was plmethlng in our great lan gun/e which should be heard; that there was great constructive power for good, for the healing of the heart, In hearing words spoken. And. Indeed, good drama Is as necessary for a people as a water works system. It Is as necessary as a bath. Indeed It gives people a mental bath. I. therefore, appeal to churchmen to help In the regeneration of the art I represent. In our profession it is part of our lives, part of our privilege to help all good causes. But when we ask for support In the work of uplifting the art of the theatre, we are met by indifference. What we ask of the church is not indifference, but help. We want help to create a standard by which every form of recreation must be measured and we went that standard made a very high one. ~ -'ll BEING A FATHER BY DR. W. E. BARTON BY DR. WM. E. BARTON Whatever else a man has to do who has a son, his real business is to make a man of that boy. If he neglects this high duty and Inestim able privilege, no matter what his reason or excuse, he will surely live to rue the day. Whatever else a father gives his son, he should not fail to give him self. He is himself a larger gift than any he can earn and convey to his boy. Boys need mothers, and mothers can do some things with boys and for boys which fathers cannot do; but no man is Justified in supposing on this account that he has any license to neglect his boy, or to turn him over wholly to his mother. The wise father will not try to do his duty by the mere spending of money for the boy, or letting the boy spend money upon himself. He will give himself as well as his money. He will share in his boy's fun, and --- he will also remember that his boy iias serious thoughts and earnest hours which also he would like to share with his father. When his boy asks his hard questions, he will not look up from his paper in annoyance, and say, "I don't know. Don't ask so many foolish questions.” When his boy is facing the great moral issues of life, his father will not leave him to learn all the most sacred facts about life from those who besmear them with foul sug gestions. He will tell his boy what the boy needs to know. He will remember that he cannot fool his boy by advising one course of conduct and practicing another. He will endeavor to be the kind of man he wants his boy to be when he grows up. Ferhaps if he does these things, he will some day .overhear his boy say to some of his companions: "When I get to be a man, I want to be just such a man as my father is.” Learn One New Thing Every Day BULLETINS BY THE •fATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY KHORASAN: THE WILD EAST OP PERSIA ‘It Is not surprising that Khora san, the wild east of Persia, should be affected by banditry because, re mote as It is from the Western Front, the World War profoundly disturbed Its peculiar government and social 'system," says a bulletin from the National Geographic So ciety concerning dispatches telling of the surrender of Khorasan insur rectionists and the death of their outlaw leader. 'Khorasan is world famous among connoisseurs of rugs, carpets and silks; beyond that fact to many it is but a name. Yet this least known of Persia's five great provinces suf fered from the alliance of Great Britain and Russia, it sustained a severe shock when Russia fell un der Soviet sway, and It experienced some of the most crass forms of German intrigue. ^ Ilulers Protean Politicians “Through a long distance polit ical lens the statesmanship of the governors of Kain, Khorasan sub province and rug making center, commands high admiration. Their succession was hereditary, but their line held sway neither by right of blood nor ancient tribel choice. They ruled by force of leadership. First of all they had to please a populace many of whom were not more than a generation or two re moved from nomadism. They had not only to bo ward politicians but international diplomats. Their problem was to play Russia, which reached out to their northern bor ders through Turkestan, against Great Britain, whose Influence touched tjjeir eastern boundary through Afghanistan. And even be fore 1914 the insidious activities of Germany had to be taken into ac count. In addition an eye had to be kept on Teheran. “For a time, but for a time only, during the World War, Amir Shou kat ul Mulk was deposed, and his successor rode into Birjand, kissing the Koran, suspended across the roadway at the gates of the city, • .n.l thmiaanrlu V* 1 a fnllftU’prfl Hill likewise.

Annoying to the other extreme, however, is the meticulous care ol the servant who always must stop to cleanse his hands before answer ing the summons of his employer. On Main Camel Lino “Blrjand lay on the main trade route of thp camel and mule borne commerce between Russia and In dia.
