Twenty years ago when the in
auguration o the International Live
Slock Exposition summoned to Chi
cago livestock breeders and feeders
from oven the remoto recesses of'civ
ilizatlion, the leaders of the trade in
an international sense, embraced the
opportunity to create a new epoch.
During the intervening .poriod
ntpny of these have passed from this
sphere of usefulness, a new genera
tion profiting by their public spirit
edness and tho seed they sowed has
borne a'bundant fruit. The 1919 In

Another reason why we don't like
for folks to talk to us of our faults
is because they go too far before
they get a god start.

day, added to the tiny pension the
'French government has-been able to
grant orphans of the war, will pro
udc for one such child.
"If every American mother who
tucks her child safely into bpd at
night,' says Mrs. Brewster, who re
turned from France but a short time
ago, "could see somo of the children
I saw, there would not be any trouble
about taking care of all our charges.
"One little girl of ten was scarcely
larger than a child of four. She had
just been returned from Germany;
she could not talk; she could stand
when someone held her hand, but she
could not walk. Another little gill of
fourteen had worked in tho fields for
three yenrs for tho Bodies, from sun
up until sundown, flogged when she
lagged in ,hcr work from weaknesb,
and when these . floggings were so
sovero that sho could not go to the
fields tho following day, she was
fined two days' pay for, nominally
sho was supposed to be paid ten
cents a day) while as a matter of
fact, through the sybtem of fines,
she never received anything and had
been imprisoned finally for failure to
pay her fines.
"In another place, whero tho
mother' ns -well as the father had
succumbed to the war, a littlo girl of
eight was operating a loom. Her little
legs wore too short to reach the
treadles, so dier six-year-old brother
knelt on the floor and worked them
with. Ms hands. We must restoro to
theso children their belief in a Prov
idence which watches over and cares
for them, comforts their bruised
hearts and assures them that there is
still lovo in tho world. And it is not
from fetes and tag-days that our
Wggest help comes, but from the
individual man or woman whose heart
is stirred by tho story of sotno littlo
child nnd who is willing to give not
only tho necessary ten cents a day,
but his or her friendship, as well. To
such a donor, a special child is as
signed, with whom he or she is put in
direct touch by correspondence.
Every cent contributed goes to tho
children; tho small expenses of the
work aro Lorno by genorous friends."
Mrs. Brewster will bo glad to mail
u booklet of translated letters from
little French children to any who will
inclose to her at Room 928, 419 S.

When J. a. W. Smith a few days
ngo commissioned a Lowell, Ark.,
banker to invest $10,000 for hiin in
his limit in Treasury Savings Cer
tificates and Liberty Bonds, a story
of success under depressing circum
stances unfolded.
Smith, seernl years ago, bought a
farm for $5,000, making a small pay
ment down and giving his note for
the balance. It was not long until ho
found the farm had been sold to him
on misrepresentation. Ho could not
evade the sale, however, and so he
planted an orchard.
The note fell duo before tho or
chard canio into bearing, however,
but his showing got an extension on
tho paper.
Last month tho farm, w ith tho fine
young orchard, sold for $18,000, not
including this yenr's apple crop,
which brought another $5,000.
Young people drift into marriage.
A young man calls on a girl. He en
jojs himself. He calls again. Uto
takes her out occasionally. He takes
her out so often that people ex
pect it of him, and comments if ho
takes anyone clsq. He knows that
people think he is engaged to her.
lie begins to think maybe it would
bo nice to be engaged, and the first
thing he knows he is engaged, and
the day lis set for the marriage. Ho
feels jealous if she looks at anyono
else, nnd imagines that since ho is
jealous he must bo in love. They
marry finally; nnd well, tliey aro
man and wife.
