The practice of violating the
postal laws by writing on the
margin of newspapers and in
packages of third or fourth class
mail matter has become so pre
valent that the authorities are
exercising unusual vigilence to
stop it. In many cities every
package is now opened to see if
it contains any writing and as a
result a large number of people
have been fined ten dollars apiece
for every case of infraction.
Probably in many instances peo
ple break the law because of a
misunderstanding, but the post
office authorities are acting on
the old legal rule that ignorance
of the law does not excuse viola
tion of the law, and no exemp
tion is made on the ground of
The withdrawing of money
from the banks and secreting it
under the floor, in stockings and
behind the clock, as many are
now doing, is sure to be followed
by an unusual number of burgla
ries and violent crimes, Thieves
usually know where the hiding
places are and they will not stop
at nothing in order to get the
booty. The safest place for mon
ey is in the bank after all, and
it results also in greater personal
safety and in mental tranquility.
Judging from a recent speech
of J. J. Hill he evidently believes
that the trusts are divinely or
dained to control and that if ev

Elsewhere in this issue ap
pears a report of the condition of
the First National Bank of Wi
baux, and, as there has been a
great money stringency through
out the United States, in the past
several weeks, and many of the

attention of our readei's is called
to note the excellent financial con
dition of this bank.
A Mr. Baronyi threatens to
expose all the misdeeds of New
port society. He need not for
people know enough about it al
ready and they may well be spar

The advantage of economical
living is a lesson that many may
profitably learn. Prosperity oft
en leads to extravagence and self
indulgence, and that generally
ends in financial disaster and fre
quently in domestic trouble also.
The best thing to take people
out of their worries is to go to
work and find out how other
folks' worries are getting on.
