It may be of interest to you to know, however, that follow ing every war in modern times, there has been a period of depression. This business depression followed the Franco-Prussian war and our great Civil war, and neither of these wars high freight rates, others on ron gres, for their delay in amending the present revenue laws.

Ilntury teaches "i that during ev ery war we have a period of inflation nf values largely brought about by abnormal demand f'T supplies of all kinds. As war is destn. live thwas I rue during our late world war. Com modities of all kinds brought on the market of the world the highest price ever recorded in modern times. The nation as well as the individ ual spent money as if it had no val ue. Uur government incurrcti a iu tional debt of over 21 billions of dol- billlons being loaned Wo, the people of the I'nited States, are called on today to pay interest on this va';t sum, as our allies hBve failed to pay interest on the amount loaned them. This, in addition to cost of maintaining the current expense of running the af fairs of the nation. In addition mu nicipal, county and s'ate taxes have more than doubled in the past 20 years. The different states are vo ting honds for rebuilding court hous es and school houses. Remember that in addition to paying interest on these bonds, wo are called upon to pay a certain amount each year to create a sinking fund to retire these bunds when they become due. During the period of inflation, farm values increased in some in stances, four fold. In many instanc- especially in Iowa. Illinois and Missouri, land values advanced from 1 100 to $:!00 and 1400 per acre, in manv instances farmers owning good fBrms, free from debt, boight an 80 'or a loo acre tract, adjoining, hhui ! gaging their homesteads to make pay imi.nl.

When the war closed and pri 'rs of 1 nil commodities started on the down ward grade, they refused to n 11 and rushed to the banks to borrow money to meet livintr expenses and interest ' i n vmi iitM You know the result. Prices continued to de.-line and when notes bc aitie due, they were unable !t. i meet their obligations. Again, on in-coept of the financial situation in the old world, they are unable to pay in money to supply their preying Th.Te is no doubt but what the ulvle general publi- is partially re nonihte for the condition of busi nes today.

As long as these extravagances are continued, the purchasing power of the producer will be extremely limited and until the pur' hasing power of the pro ducers of this country is in some way inercaed, we cannot hope for an improwment in general business. rw The golden secret of good Health is good food. Especially Bread. If your family show a craving for meat and other foods too rich for di gestion, you can break them of the habit by seeing that plenty of Bread is always on the table. Good Health, enjoy ment, and economy come all in one slice Bread. Serve it freely your table. on Butter-Flake Bread is the sweet delicious loaf you can eat and eat eat. Every crumb brings health and enjoyment. Ask your grocer. Martin Baking Company and i Kii t DrJ U Your Dl foots m1 Only EconomUaJ Fot Today CHAMBER OF COMMERCE The famous Kansas edi'or, author and uH'cr, William Allen White, ha written an ari le for Collier's wth the abac beading, in whi h he pay a great omt'liment to Chambers of Commcp e. He points out there are dor.cn of agencies at work in th" small towns for amelioration but place, the Chamber of Commerce at the top of the list. He says: "The Chamber of Com merce today in the American small town and in the Ameri an city is the leading exponent of altruism in the omnc nit y. It is not a wide intcrur ban n!'ruim that the Chamber of Cummer e footers; it is Hirginsville ' firt. Hut it is for Higirinsville all the time. The Chamber of Com merce modifies the innate eus"cdn"ss of the average selfish, hard-boiled, piray'ini-h, penny-pinching, narrow-! gauged human porker, and lifts ui his snout; makes him see further than hi home, his business, and hi personal interest, and sets him root ing for his community. "It is a shorter step from the city to the state, from the s'ate to tbe na tion, and from the nation to human ity than the tremendous Jump whi h a man must take to consider his ci'y before his own interest. And the town Chamber of Commerce is giving the firt le-son in praeti-al Chris tiani'y to millions of savages in Am en a. It is not a full baptism, but it helps. "A man, no matter how greedy and saint -eyed he may be, cannot work a year upon any moderately im fortant committee of his town's1 Chamber of Commerce without be ing a better father, a better hus band, a better i jtir.en, a better broth-1 er. : "After this apprenti-cshi') he falls an easy vi tim to the R-tarians, ori the Lions or the Kiwanis Club. These1 trrouns interest men in a somewhat i broader fellowshin than the one ; which the Chamber of Commerce promotes. They are interested in the ; neighboring under-dor; in man as aj suffering: or as an inspiring creature. ' The Rotarians typify the others. IIe who serves best, thrives most,' they i declare. They are interested in ' friendship, in boys, in jollying up the country people around the towns, in , "the poor and needy one that rlus-1 tera all about,' in parks and play-' grounds, and they nationalize a num-' "Men in thee gay groups of; her of highly altruistic activities, rough-necked, low-browed Samari-: tans are making the Jericho road a' fairly rafe and decently comfortable' highway wherever they roll their, ihariots al ne. And they ln'erlo k i ifh the Chamber of Commerce. It is bad form for a Kotarian or for a member of any of these so ieties not' to be a member of the Chamber of! Commerce. Thus a stream of rather intelligent altruism keeis fliv.ing in-' to the Chamber of Commerce." Lrt G-nrs; Do It. I Bv Dr. Frank Crane. There are two classes of people in If This Were Your Washing A small matter, this yet only one of the lisks incurred in sending the washing "out." In what you wear, as in what you eat, purity and sanitation are im portant and these you can be sure of only in a thoroughly modern laun dry like ours. Consider these things what you send us is washed in billowy, purify ing suds, in four fresh waters ; it is rinsed not once, but three or four times, in more clean, clear water. Then ironed at 212 degrees and more, and wrapped, finally in a sun lit room, and in a dust-proof package. Not mere cleanness but practical sterilization. And youll find it economical, and clothes-conserving, too. Try this modern way by sending us your next family washing. Phone today. Investigate Oar Family Wash Department Lubbock Laundry Co.
