WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1919 1 THE LAND OF MEMORY To The .Editor of The Sun Sir: I wonder if each of the old boys who have been recalling the memories of IHe in the country made a wagon in the tool shed or barn a wago.i by which to haul walnuts, butternuts and shellbarks. All boys then had a good deal of mechanical ability and could use the drawing knife and other tools fairly well. Well do I remember such a wagon I made. It was a marvel of efficiency. It had solid wood wheels on ash axles and was in fact the minature of the big farm wagon except as to wheels. The body had a capacity of about three bushels Though the axles were liberally supplied with tallow, hard grease or soap it creaked and groaned under a load of nuts all the way down the farm road leading from the woods to the barn. What fun that nut gathering was! If the frosts had not brought down all the nuts we risked life and limb by climbing the trees to pole or shake them down. How good those nuts were as during the winter evenings we sat with a flatiron between our knees and cracked, cracked, cracked! In those days woolen wrist warmers and wollen scarfs, knit by mother or grandmother, were absolute essentials of winter wear, both as regards utility and personal adornment The scarfs were usually of gay colors, with" red predominating. An attractive scarf helped a boy a lot with the girls. We skated on frozen creeks and on bottom fields on which the water had overflowed and frozen. We sledded on the steep hill roads with home made sleds of solid wood, the runners of which were shod with solid round irons. And in the summer did you ever carry water in jugs to the harvesters from a spring that seemed a mile dis tant? That was a job, but there were compensations intervals of sitting in the shade playing mumble the peg we never knew there was a the in the game eating rasberries that grew wild in the fence rows and stony, un cultivated places, and having one's fill of Early Harvester apples. Another diversion was hoeing the corn and pulling off the suckers. Backs were stronger then. Then we hauled the soft v.atei from the uncontaminated creek or river, from which mother made delicious small beer, which was always kept in crocks, barrel shape cracks. My. but it was good! Just what the ingredients were I don't know I wish I did but it had a tang and flavor comparable only to the nectar of the gods. It seems to me there were raisins, yeast, sugar, cinnamon and maybe other things used in its making, but I am not sure. In these degenerate days it might be taboo. E. Ardmore, Pa., December 1.

I When schools last lessons are learned, And our books are closed and dis carded ; When the echoes of chapel are gone. And the thoughts of a test not re garded; We snail rest, and faith, we shall need it To all' books we bid adieu, Till fate, the wearer of destinies, Shall put us to work anew! And those who were smart shall profit, They shall sit in a rocking chair; They shall visit the picture show daily To see if their ideal is there: They shall find real pleasures to plan for A hope chest filled mostly with hopes; They shall wander through Kirby's for hours, And come out with one bar of soap. And only the phone shall awake us, In place of the hated alarm And no one shall work for credits, We shall use all our efforts to charm; And each in the joy of living, And each as a wearer of dresses, Shall picture the world her foot-stool. With everything just as it seems Miss Cohen is a Louisville girl and a niece of Mrs. W. J. Schopp, of Stephensport, whom she spends part of her vacation with every summer and is well known in that community. ARMY TRUCKS TO BE USED FOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION MILLIONS IN GOLD EXPORTED Bulk of the U. S. Exports Goes to Japan. A Good Share to India and China. 'Washington, Dec. 3. Gold exports from the United States for the month of November approximate $67,000,000, bringing the total amount since the war embargo was lifted last June to $822.985,t0O. Against the export fig ures for November there is an offset in imports of less than $11,000,000. making a net loss in the huge gold reserve piled up here during the war of $56,000,000 Practically all of the gold exported went to the Orient, a destination from which officials say it probably never will return. The bulk of the exports went to Japan, a good share to India and some to China All of the ex ports were from San Francisco and the entire quanity found its way to countries that have a balance of trade against the United States. Imports all came in on the Eastern seaboard and were from allied coun tries, prinripally Great Britain. In all thrr nations the United States has a favorable balance of trade and the dol lar is at a premiu on exchange. Officials here take the view that the course of the gold movement is a nat ural one though there are many who believe that the real need of the n-t tion is relinquishment to debtor na- ' tions that they may be kept in position to do business with us and meet their obligations. When the European war ended the United States held most of the entire world supply of gold and a slow dis tribution of the metal is looked for. This will operate, it is expected, to maintain the gold standard among the nations using it. It will likewise tend to decrease the clamor in some quar ters for a premium for gold produc tion in this countrv to meet the fall ifi Velative value of the metal. Since the embargo on gold was lift ed the trend has been all one way. Japan has been reaching out for the metal and is getting it in settlement of an unfavorable trade balance. Eu rope has continued to send a relative ly small quantity to this country in settlements. SUBSCRIBE FOR THE NEWS Washington, Dec. 3. Secretary Baker indicated to-day that the reso lution adopted by the House at then last session requesting that all surplus motor vehicles of the army be sold at auction immediately would not cause the department to alter its plans for disposing of this equipment. "It has been and will continue to be the policy of the War Department to sell surplus motor propelled vehicles to the public by auction," the Secre tary wrote in reply to the resolution. Referring to the request that 22,195 vehicles be alloted to the Agricultural Department for use in highway cons truction, the Secretary said this nu mber of trucks were being thansferred to that department "as rapidly as possible." on Time Deposits AKRON GETS RECORD SHIPMENT OF RUBBER.

From reports coming in from the big gusher struck on the Gardner lease in Allen county, the well is the biggest strike made east of the Mississippi river, and is a close competitor of the famous gushers of Oklahoma and Texas. The well is computed by oil men to be good for from 1,000 to 3,000 barrels of oil per day. As soon as the oil was struck it began flowing in such volumes that the entire country surrounding the well was sub merged in oil. Basins were immediately built to catch the oil, and there are several lakes of oil on the farm. The first day a, 500 barrels of oil were caught in twenty-four hours, and at least that much is computed to have been lost before the basins were constructed. It is estimated that on the first day a least 5,000 barrels of oil flowed from the well. The well has been capped and is now under pump. Tilting tanks placed on the lease. The well is attracting hundreds of oil men here. It is owned by ten farmers of the neighborhood, who pooled a sum to drill the well. The gusher above described is but a few miles from the three leases owned by this company. There are many other producing wells in other directions from our leases, some very near.. Our leases offer as good prospect for a gusher as the Lease on which this well ' was drilled, in the opinion of experienced oil men and geologists. Out of 8 wells completed in Barren county last week 7 ha,ve paying production only 1 dry hole. Just average results from" our drilling would multiphy invest ed dollars several fold. Our gold note and stock offer is an honest opportunity for many to share in some of these good things. Better act right now. Yours for honest development and fair dealing.
