The State.
Job printers and stationers are very
much disturbed over the uncertain condition
c/ the market in everything used
ia the manufacture of printed wo.k
and of the standard lines carried by
stationery stores. Paper prices nave
advanced sharply, and as a rule rates
on printing inks are given only on re
quest, a'l standing quotations bein^
withdrawn. A prominent ink makei
v. rites that one ingredient entering
into the manufac;uie of black inks hag
advanced 300 per cent.
Unprecedented Advances.
January and February witnessed
continuous and unprecedented advances
in the price of raw material,
and the failure c? sulphite importers
and rag packers to make adequate
deliveries on existing contracts forced
writing paper mills making higher
grades to obtain a large portion oi
raw material on the open market at
current prices, necessitating the most
marked advances mat tne writing paper
business has experienced in years,
Manufacturers of high explosives

them and utilize them as a base for
guncotton at a cost of 2 cems to 2
cents iess per pound than the present
price <.4 raw cotton, and thus offer
a new outlet for packers of the better
;The further fact thai Great Britain
on February l. placed an embargo on
the export of all paper makers' materials,
and that Sweden placed one
on the export of all pulp, has not helped
in holding down prices. Those
grades in which new rag cuttings are
largely employed liave had to take the
sharpest and heaviest of the advances
To ag^iavate ifurther the situation,
the demand for bond and writing papers
has been increased by leaps and
bounds, so that manufacturers are
sadly behind iheir orders, and many,

to obtain full production from their
The demand for these grades for export
has reached a point where prices
offered for immediate deliveries are
alluring to some of the manufacturers
and adds another bull factor to the
general situation.
Practically all manufacturers have
advanced prices 20 to 30 per cent., the
market showing examples where even
havir advances have been made on
medium priced grades heretofore sold
at prices slightly under market for
similar qualities.

If you will make use o.~ this information.
we belie-, e you will find it
easier to explain to your c-ustome:s
tr.e advance in the cost of papers.
The color situation grows more difficult?some
dyes and colors formerly
employed are no longer obtainable at
any price. Manufacturer's are compelled
to use substitutes, less reliable in
the matter of uniformity in strength
and density, and variations in shade
are common and must be expected.
White paper also must be expected to
snow some variation in snade, as practically
all whites are artificial and the
delicate corrective colors formerly employed
are not now available.

BOX 163, co:
(By Rev. \V. M. Whiteside)
The above caption is of vital interest
to the Christain church. Econcmy ar.d j
waste stand or.c over against the oth- ,
er. Indeed one seems to be the ever- j
lasting enemy of the other. During
the past three years in my work I
liane been contrasting the amount o\
money wasted with that which is used
in carrying 011 the work cf the kingdom.
Some facts will suffice to justify
this article.
When it Began ?nd Why.
Between the ages of twenty and
thirty years the habits of economy or
j extravagance are permanently Jormed
j At the age of sixty 95 per cent. cen;.
j of men are either objects of charity
or are dependent on their children. A
I man's habits between the aces of 20 ^
| and 30 will determine whether he falls j
in with the 9r> per cenf. or the remaining
five per cent.
How to Begin.
Thcusnds of business concerns as j
well as individuals have S'one to the
bad because they liad an inadequate
system of bookkeeping. The three
j richest women in America are said to
be Mrs. Hetty Greene. Mrs. E. H. Har- j
riman and Mrs. Russell Sage The.
are said to have followed closely the'
following rule: "Practice economy and |
keep accounts."
Mr. John I). Rockefeller is said to |
have begun Ledger A at eight years j
j d age, after driving a good bargain j
J in the sale of some turkeys his
mother had given to him. Much
c,'-' Mr. Rockefeller's success is due :
to his early habit of keeping accounts.!
i Besin an account with yourself to- |
day. Write in a book {he things you
buy and soon you will be able to cut
out many worthless articles. You
also find yourself purchasing at
ter prices.
Yulut of Little Things
Mr. E. H. Harriman, the railroad
king of America is said to ha ve saved j
i metal cliDs taken /.rom the sheets of
paper found in his mail and to have
torn off the blc.nk pages of paper and
!aid them aside for use in writing
Memorandums. When a \isitor made
some remark about it Mr. Harrimtn ;
said: "So man can afford not to be
saving of every trifle. Only the poor
are wasteful."
Soft Drinks.
I found in one small mill town '-hat'
j $11,000 worth of soft drinks were j
' shipped to the drink stands in one
r year. I suppose there was an average
j profit of 50 per cent realized on tlie
j sales which would make the goods cost
j the mill people $16,500. In ten years
j the mill people could build and pay J
i for a cotton mill worth $165,000 by j
T J. _
; saving tins one item. 11 is a uummuu :
i thing, to find a laboring man who!
drinks two and three "dopes" per day. {
It has never occurred to him that his j
habits are equal to a reduction of from ;
ten to 15 cents per day from his wages.
1 Church members give ten cents per
day for "dope" and five cents per!
week tor preaching the gospel. I j

j have not formed any taste for it, con,
sequently suffer no inconveniences.
One man is substituting sweet milk
on ice for "dopes." The people want j
something cold and seem to be glad tc !
make the change. Why not each mill j
encourage such a movement? It would '

Buying on Installment,
Things bought on installment always
come high. I knew a man to
buy a piano |:or $6zo casn tnat was
selling regularly at $T>00 on monthly
payments. iThe story is afloat that a
woman passing by a furniture store
saw a small center table which she
liked. The salesman informed her that
the table could be bought for $2 on
installment or $1.50 cash. She said,
"Well, 1 will take the table on the in- ailment
plan and pay you $1..">0 down
on it." ?.Iany of our people formed
the habit of doing business in this
w;-y and have never found out that
men ni". luring the same goods
ror one-fo'.:rth and in many instances
one-third less money.
Building ;:iKi Loan. ^
Recent'/ I 'ie;^ a ; afternoon meeting
with a number of young married
men. rhcy a!! worked in the same
mill and drew about the sine wages
each week. I discussed economy
and wastt- with tiioin. Only one out
of the bunch ! bd saved any money
during 191 ."> and he had the largest
family to provide for. One of these
had an income of $24 per month ahove
his wages and his wife worked most
ci the time and yet he was in debt.
We had a frank, free open conference
Each one told his condition. I took up
building and loan with them. They
all agreed that each one of them could
carry ten shares. I worked it out on
the black board. They never had a
lesson on such things before. They
agreed to besin af once.
Recently eighty men out of one mill
village marched to the beat of the
drum up to the bank and took out
building and loan. A new vision has
come to each c/1 these men.
A new day has come to the wage
earner of South Carolina. He is des
lined to own ms own nome ana provide
a bank account for his family.
In 1912, the year before I began
work with tlie State board I was offered
a bet:er salary than are now receiving
if I would devote all cK my
time to teaching the mill people how
to save their money. I loved tlie Baptist
cause too well to yield to this
strong temptation. At present I am
away from home almost all the time.
Under the above proposition I could
have been at home a few days each
week. I preached and practiced
economy while in the pastorate. The
first bex-ause I saw its need, the second
because I felt it.
While I was pastor of Green Street
church we had in our membership 23
widow women. Much of my slary was
raid by those women and their children.
The pleasure I might have gotten
out of smoking a cigar would have
been taken away by the knowledge a
the fact that my money had been earned
by hard labor.?Baptist Courier.
