THE LIFE BLOOD OF THE COUNTRY PAPER. The funny fellows of the bis city newspapers who find constant material for jests in the personal items of the country papers, overlook the fact that "the Tom Smiths of Dugan Road Sttndayed with the William Wilsons of Fairmount" is not nearly so absurd as the metropolitan paper's half-page, with pictures, about the Vanastors, week-end with Gouldfishes at Newport. Indeed it is not absurdity at all, but vitally good newspaper work for the country paper to chronicle in the familiar vernacular the doings of sub stantial people known to all in their communities. To those who do not know the life of the smaller cities these personal mentions may seem insigni ficant and funnv. but they are the very life blood of the' country paper. Most people take a local paper to get the local happenings. The paper must be true to the life of its community. In the country daily are no juggling with shining names that to the readers are mere names; no sensational spreads on stage divorces; there is little account of sordid crime and tawdry immorality: but there is ceaseless effort for community betterment, respect for sterling character and record of achievements and enjoyments of people worth while, whom city readers could profit to know. The country paper in reporting the simple things of wholesome life is chronicling the'real America; for the real America, where life is at its best and most fruitful, where the strength of the nation is rooted, where its wealth is created and is best and more virile ideals are born and cherished. lies out side the great cities. The character and career of the nation are built up not of great headline events, but of infinitely multiform little doines of the mil lions who live and strive1 cIoc to the boundless resources to Mother Nature and close to their neighbors' hearts. The funny fellows of the citv press would find better subjects for ridicule nearer home. Editor and Publisher. New York City.

The people who "want something for nothing" were censured last even ing by Rev. Edward T Sullivan in the Cathedral church of St. Paul. His subject was "If Christ Came to Bos ton Would Some Things Be Different or' Not?" and in spite of the heat the church was filled. "People don't want the truth," said Mr Sullivan. "When we want 50 per cent in 45 days we certainly don't want the truth. That desire of some thing for nothing overrides every thing else. Nothing can stop us We don't want to know that what we be lieve in is a fraud and we won't be lieve it when it is proved to us. "We are exposed to every fraud: we fall prey to every schemer as long as we have that 'something for noth ing' spirit. As long as we continue to have such desires there will be a plen tiful supply of schemes and schemers. The demand within us creates the sunnly outside us Mr. Sullivan referred also to the de crease in the number of children in the Protestant Sunday Schools. "I sometimes wish that there were no Protestant Sunday Schools," he said, "so that the Protestant parents would begin to realize that their children are not getting a real Christian training. "In the past four years there has been a decrease of more than 6.000,000 in the number of children in Protes tant Sunday Schools. The Jewish child gets a total of 335 hours of formal religious training a year; the Roman Catholic child gets a total of 300 hours a year of formal religious training The Protestant child gets a bout 24 hours a vear, or less than one- nait hour a week ol religious instruc A LITTLE TALK ON THRIFT. By S. W. STRAUS, Pres. American Society for Thrift A list of fifty men who. arc taking leading parts in the business life of America shows that only four of this number are under 30, The average age is 01, while twelve of the group arc past 70. It is thrift of years to prolong one's period of usefulness as much as possible. Youth with its restless am bitions and its unfulfilled dreams has place in the great affairs of men. But it is a fallacy that the age of CO marks the deadline of accomplishment Com paratively few of the men who have played prominent parts in shaping the course of civilization were known to fame at 50 and most 6f the epochal accomplishments of mankind have been brought about thru the power and genius and those well beyond the half-century mark. Chauncey M DePew once said that "Men and women have died because thev have believed what King David said. You can die any time vou like if you think hard enough that you cannot live beyond that time." While it is true that there are some lines of work that can be performed onlv by young men and women, it is a false doctrine of economics that the burden of human advancement falls entirely upon youthful shoulders No phase of thriftlcssness is as cruel in its phil osoohy as that which proclaims the iiselessness of so-called old men. It is just as much a part of thrift for a man to remain active and useful to the verv last day as it is to conserve money or material resources. Thrift of time means putting as manv years of accomplishment as possible into each day. The man who at 50 has not yet found his place in the great affairs of men need not be discouraged. He still has his pbance He should leirn to treasure his mistakes and his failures as a fund of priceless experience, and. with this dearly paid knowledge and wisdom, set forth to accomplish the great work which he feels lies within his power. No man ever is defeated a lonsr as he still can kindle the fires of ambition in his soul. His life mav be a" story of wasted years, but this grim fact should prove onlv a scourge to driv him on to ultimate success. Thrift does not consist alone in sav ing money, conserving food and wear ing made-over clothes The prolonga tion of the years of one's usefulness constitutes one of the most glorious examples of this virtue. The sum total of human accomplish ment will be immeasurably increased when humanity learns the profound lesson of the thrift of years.

WHEN AUGUST COMES. When August comes the crickets sing, Or jingle sleigh-bells all night long; Bv day you hear the locust sting Recaiise the locust has no song. The air is humid, sultry, close. Oppressive, stifling, hot as fire. Desidned to make us all morose, Cantankerous, as we perspire. When August comes the flies abound, The skeetcrs tease us with their sing ing. The gardner sees pests all around. Each somenew trouble with it bring ing, Around plain folks, like you and me. Some pesky nuisance always hovers But at the mountains, by the sea, Oh, August is the month for lovers! CANNING STRING BEANS The task li done, and I may gaze In pleasure". O, what a sight of beauty I behold. No miser ever joyed in hoarded treasure A I joy now In crystals filled with gold. What though a million vamplrca called moi quitoei Feasted upon me ai I stripped the, vine? What though a myriad little demons Of weariness played havoc with my spine? What matter o( my thumbs ate decorated With many a little reddish crisscross line? These varloui paint have aomewhatly abated For U not all this wealth of treasure mine? I will forget the blanching and the steaming And other processes by experts planned. I'll now indulge a bit In happy dreaming, Knowing my golden wax string beans are canned. West Medway.

In that almost Perfect State to which Mr. Don Marquis looks for ward there will be no August. It will not be necessary to have one, because there is no popular use for the month except to take vacations in; and of course in the ideal state of humanity nobody will need holidays. All life will be a day off with double pay for idling overtime. August is getting worse and worse. Last year, after it had rained eight indies in July, persons who rely on averages figured" that August would be dry. The upshot was that August broke every precipitation record, bar one, that it had made since, 1884. And to punish the seashore vacationists, it was cold. This year August goes in for damp ness. The weather man insists that there have been rainless days since sweet July took to the woods of Time. If that is true they slipped by in the fog. But the dank air that came in with August sticks In all senses of the verb. Thunderstorms fail to dis lodge it and are themselves converted by the miasma into demons of daily visitation. Hay will not cure nor hair curl. Salt cements itself in its cellar. Crackers are Crackless. Matches squeak, sputter and die. Cigarette;? arc damp tubes of respair. Starched linen wilts like the League confronted with a war. Food is a mockery and drink folly. Men and women summon doctors, saying that they have unmistakable svmntoms of potmaine poisoning, Asi atic cholera, elephantiasis and senile dementia. All they have, however, is August, the accursed, the month that makes men mad Nothing will cure it but old Doc Gale coming out of the northwest at a forty mile clip with a bagful of fresh air.
