Henry Ford s New Cure for The
Ills of Humanity
Henry Ford has a new cure for business depression. ,
He has a new cure for the unemployment terror. He j
has a new cure for low wage schedules. He says the j
people need more bathtubs and an adequate supply of
water with a kick In it. He has the figures. Nine out
of ten Americans arc without bathtubs, and the na
tional water supply Is without a kick.
That is. It is impure and unpalatable, rank to the
taste and poisonous to the innards.
In days remote the scientists and unllfters said the
same thing about red likker. They said the same .
thing about wines and beer. Now where do we go j
from here?
Henry has given to the American world a new
paramount issue: *'A bathtub for every household
for individuals with scant purses, and a bathtub for
ever?' room for the rich of the leisure class and the j
rich who do not scorn labor."
It goes without saying that many of the richest of
Americans are as actively engaged in business today
as they were when their pocket books were starved
and the owners of the books fighting for a place in
the sun.
Hays County Democrats
On Record
Hays county democrats in convention assembled de
clared for legislation "that will improve the ma
chinery by which the people elect their candidates."
They made another declaration and a very pointed
one—"That all revenues for the support of the state
government should be raised by indirect taxation, thus
leaving revenues from ad valorem taxation for the
local units.’ Now Just how far will the taxation pro
gram get under the big dome next winter? Will the
house enact a new taxation measure and the senate
sandbag the house offering? It is for Mr. Jones, the
freight payer, to watch and wait.
Vacancy Priority Promised By
When Texas entered the union it retained all its
public lands. These lands were surveyed into sections
and sold by the state to citizens. Under existing law
a person ferreting out such vacancies may file there
on and the land, commissioner is bound to sell to such
applicants. Prior right of persons whose land includes
vacancies to purchase these vacancies from the state
is advocated by Ross S. Sterling, in the run-off with
the Fergusons. Responsibility in government is an
issue that is uppermost in the closing days of the 1930
primary election campaign. It is a bona fide and not
a bunk issue.
Bobbitt Never Hesitated
Atty. Gen. R. L. Bobbitt never hesitated. After
the results of the July primary were given to the
people he was the first to jump into the arena for
the August finals declaring his undying opposition to
• Fergusonism and all its forms and shapes and de
vices" He threw down the gauntlet to Jimmy Allred
and now the fight is on again. Jimmy Ignored the
Bobbitt thrust and that's that. Courage of convic
tion is a magnificent trait in the makeup of a man
in or out of politics.

(Hundreds of taxi-drivers suspended for discarding
coats and disregarding personal appearance during
hot spell.”—New York News Dispatch.)
If you would drive a taxi well
Avoid appearance crude;
When zooming through the streets »
Just watch your pulchritude.
Remember that when In a cab
A passenger doth ride,
The sight of clothing rather drab
Will leave him mortified.
Fastidious, oh driver, be—
Look spic and span and pert!
Arrange your collar carefully—
And button up your shirt I
Wash taximan, behind each ear
And in your mirror note
Your cut of flpthing, front and rear,
And don't tahe off your coat!
Remember that when speeding thru
The city on one wheel
And barely missing lamp-posts, you
Should foster sex appeal.
Be ever neat and realize
That when he's in a wreck
A passenger wants pretty ties
Around the driver’s neck.
Use scented soap three times a day
And know when motor fails
A passenger won’t mind delay
If you have pretty nails!
Shave in the morning and at night;
Oil carefully your hair;
Keep your complexion lily-white
And change your underwear.
Remember as a truck you biff
And upset in the street,
A passenger won’t mind it if
You're looking clean and neat.
Know well that if you overturn
And bruise a rider much
He won't care if he can discern
A skin he loves to touch!
Forgot not if you lcse control
And some poor hiker slay,
He will not mind it. on the whole,
If you are garbed okay.
It isn't hew you drive or where
Or what you say or do;
The test is what, good sir. you wear
And if your tie's askew.
And I'slng the Scrubbing-Brush

The Value of a Godly Home
The International Uniform Sun
day School Lesson for Aug. 10. The
Value of a Gcdly Hom<\ I Sam.
1:19-18, 24-28; 2:19.
Editor of The Ccmgregaticnalist
Text: I Sam. 1:9-18, 24-28; 2:19.
So Hannah rose up after they
had eaten in Shiloh, and after
they had drunk. Now Ell the priest
sat upon a seat by a post of the
temple of the Lord.
And she was in bitterness of
soul, and prayed unto the Lord,
and wept sore.
And she vowed, and said. O. Lord
of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look
on the affliction of thine hand
maid. and remember me, and not
forget thine handmaid, but wilt
give unto thine handmaid a man
child, then I will give him unto
the Lord all the days of his life,
and there shall no razor come
upon his head.
And it came to pass, as she
continued praying oefore the Lord,
that Eli marked her mouth.
Now Hannah, she spake in her
heart; only her lips moved, but
her voice was not heard; there
fore Eli thought she had drunken.
And Eli said unto her. How Ions
wilt thou be drunken? put away
thy wine from thee.
And Hanah answered and said.
No. my lord. I am a woman of r,
sorrowful spirit: I have drunk
neither wine nor strong drink, but
haw poured out my soul before
the Lord.
Count not thine handmaid for
a daughter of Belial: lor out of
the abundance of my complaint
and grief have I spoken hitherto.
Then Eli answered and said. Go
in piece: and the God of Israel
grant thee thy petition that thou
hast asked of him.
And she said, Let thine hand
maid find grace in thy sight. So
the woman went her way. and did
eat. ar.d her countenance was no
more sad.
• « •
And when she had weaned him,
' she took him up with her, with
tree bullocks and one ephih of
flour, and a bottle of wine, and
brought him unto the house of
the Lord in Shlioh: and the child
was young.
And they slew a bullock, and
brought the child to Eli.
And she said. O my lord, as thy
soul liveth. my lord. I am the
woman that stood by thee here,
praying unto the Lord.
For this child I prayed: and the
Lord hath given me my petition
which I asked of him:
Therefore also I have lent him
to the Lord: as long as he liveth
he shall be lent to the Lord. And
j he worshipped the Lord there.
• • •
Moreover his mother made him
a little coat, and brought it to
him from year to year, when she
came up with her husband to of
1 fer the yearly sacrifice.
The president of or.e of the best- |
known of Amercian colleges not
long ago emphasized the difficulty
of certain problems of discipline
in connection with student life be
cause of the influence of the ideas
and habits prevalent in the homes
from which these students came.
Whether, because there is laxity
on the part of students in certain
directions, re-enforced by laxity on
the part of their parents, the funda
mental law of the land affecting
certain matters should be changed,
may be seriously open to question:
but the president of this university
was on safe enough ground in in- i
dicating that where there is no
proper discipline or encouragement •
from the home, the problem of
those who are seeking to educate
and guide youth is greatly intensi
fied. The quality of a people and
of a country ultimately depends
upon the quality of Its homes and ,
its home life.
Better influences outside of the
home have occasionally operated to
produce some noble type of man |
whose energy and ambition have
enabled him to create for himself a
newer and better enviroment. but
it is doubtful whether there is one
case in ten where a man of noble
and useful character comes out of
a home environment that is low
and sordid. Even where the out
ward environment of the home
seems to suggest advantage or lux
ury, of the moral atmosphere be
corrupt the influence will destroy
the foundation of true character.
I oe rarrm5 n.e*ponsiuimy
All this would seem to be so true
as to be self-evident, yet It Is mar
velous how home influences are
neglected. It is appalling to think
of the number of parents who do
not take the responsibility of par
entage with any seriousness, or who I
start so late, or who show them- ;
reives so ineffective in the train- !
ing of their children, that the !
children may be said to grow up
with no real guidance at all.
Frcm this condition of neglect
and inefficiency in the training of
the young. It is a pleasure to con
template the achievements of good
homes and good parentage in the
production of good lives. Here in
our lesson we have the portrait of
a godly mother—a mother in in
stinct and purpose before a child
had actually come into her life,
seeking earnestly the fulfillment
of her hopes, and in the time of
fullfillment remembering to the
letter her vows and her prayers.
Hannah, devoted to her young
son, Samuel, gives him none the
less to the service of religion as
she had vowed. She brings him.
after she had weaned him. to the
holy house in Shiloh, and there she
pledges him to Ell. the priest, to
perform such duties ps Lli may
give him in personal service and j
in the service of the tabernacle.
The Hannahs and Samuels have
been by no means limited to the
records of scripture or to ancient ■
times. Not long ago I read of a j
mother in a humble home in a lit
tle hamlet of Scotland who back in
the middle of last century was rear
ing seven sons. Every one of these
became a man of eminence and
usefulness in the world, and every
one of them traced the determin
ing influence of his life to this
godly and devoted mother.
Nor are these influences always
the influences of the mother, or of
the mother alone. Sometimes the
ideals and influences of the father
become the determining iactor n
the lives of the children, especially
where the mother shares these
ideals and influences. There is a
striking illustration of this in the
family of Dr. Graham Taylor,
founder of the Chicago Commons
and for many years associated with
the work of that settlement.
Dr. Taylor has recently written
his autobiography under the title
-Pioneering on Social Frontiers."
This autobiography he dedic" s o
his comrades and colleagues and to
the members cf his family each
"one of whom," he says, “has con
tributed to and shared in life’s
whole endeavor."
net usee id :»:ove a way
I have never known the family
of Graham Taylor, but some years
ago I came across an interesting
fact to which this dedication gives
added significance. I was told that
when Dr. Taylor's family was grow,
ing up around him some of his
friends said to him that it was all
right for him to live in this social
settlement and do his work there
in an undesirable neighborhood, but
that he ought not to be bringing ip
his iamiiy under these conditions
but ought to be seeking for them
more attractive and favorable sur
But Dr. Taylor brought up his
family in the environment of his
own ideals. He inculcated in his
children his own outlook of love
and service, and I have been told
that every member of that family
turned out in every way creditable
to the father and guided them in
his own foosteps.
Records like that have their place
along side the story of Hannah and
Samuel in that larger Bible that
is always being written in the ex
perience of those who seek the
way of God.
Falling River ‘Rises’
NEWCASTLE. Pa., Aug 9 —uP —
They know now why the Shanango
river here has not fallen while
o*her streams in the vicinity have
gone almost dry.
B. F. Johnston, U. S. weather ob
server, admitted he was puzzled.
But when his observation yesterday
disclosed the river actually rising,
he decided on a tour of inspection.
An hour later he found a number
of boys enjoying a swimming pool
they had constructed just below the
observation station.
