Entered at the poetoffic« at Montpelier, Idaho, ae second clan mall matter. FARMERS HOLDING THEIR BONDS The Painesville, Ohio, Telegraph, Insists that most of the Liberty Bonds bought by the farmers still re main in their possession. "Farmers probably more than any other class, understand the enormous value of these securities, their unchallenge able safety, the certainty of Interest payments," says the Telegraph in commenting editorially on the wis dom of holding On to the Govern ment bonds purchased during the war. "The last thing a farmer would care to sacrifice when short of cash In his land. Next to that, no doubt, is his Liberty Bonds. They have the solidity of the land itself." HOARDING IS NOT THRIFT. The Erie, Pa., Times rightly sayB that is it hardly necessary to say that the thrift movement as it is now being taugh^ has no relation to miserliness or tq the mere hoarding of money. Thoife who save in the right spirit are the ones who always have money to go out and buy what they need. They are the one who are welcomed by thé merchants and the storekeepers, because they know what they want and have the money to pay for it. ELD REN TEACHING CH TO SAVE What better incentive can be giv en a child to (earn the advantages of Thrift than for the father or mother to start an account for the youngster in the Postal Savings 1 } When the depoilts to the child's cre dit have reached the sum of $20 the money can be riiade to earn more in terest by investing this amount, with a few extra nickels added in one of the new $25 Treasury Savings Certificates bearing the portrait of Theodore Roosevelt, which will be issued by the Treasury Department toward the end of the year. America wilt no longer be consid ered a Nation of spendthrifts if par ents of to-day use the necessary pre caution to see that their children— the citizens pf tomorrow—are not allowed to grow wasteful and extra vagant. Teach them the many ad vantages of thrift in their young and tender years. It will grow to be the best habit thöy have when life's re sponsibilities borne. Thrift will teach them the value of every penny; the wonderful grow ing power of money. It will teach your child qelf-reliance and bring self-respect. If you start a Postal Savings account to-day or invest in a $25 or $100 Treasury Savings Cer tificate, which yield nterest at 4 per cent quarterly, if held until maturity you will teach the child to assume his responsibility of citizenship by helping to finance the Government. That small start may be the first rung in the ladder of success in your boy's business life. It will bring your daughter an understanding of money values that will make her an economical housewife some day, a blessing and help to ber husband and family. « Your Depreciation Costs Would Pay for an I Implement Shed : : Your expensive machinery soon goes to rack and ruin when exposed to the weather.

The Chamber of Commerce It seems that a majority of the members of the Bear Lake Chamber of Commerce have developed the idea that th club belongs solely to the few officers whq have been charged with the duties of administering the affairs of the club, and that the officers should go ahead and de vote all of their time in the interests of the club without assistance from the members. 1 } of re in by of an a and Complaints against the rlub can he heard from many sources and when run to earth it developes that in every instance these complaints come from members who never attend a meeting of the organization. The Chamber of Commerce is not a one-man organization; nor does it be long to the few officers who are spending much of their valuable time in looking after the affairs of the club. But the Chamber of Commerce is strictly a community insti tution, and every man holding a membership in the or ganization has a voice in the affairs of the club if he will only come out and attend the meetings. it There are about twenty members of the club who will always be found in attendance at meetings, but you never hear knocks and complaints from these members. It is the ones who never attend the meetings who have the biggest complaint to make. The officers are doing their best to make the club an active institution, at least the majority of them.. But it is up to the members to give the officers their support. If anyone dislikes the manner in which the club is conducted, all he has to do is to attend meetings and help improve matters by offering, not only suggestions, but real service in conducting the organiza tion. The Chamber of Commerce needs the assistance of every man in Montpelier and Bear Lake county, whether members or not, to assist in working out the community problems which always confront progressive communities* and we urge every member of the Chamber to turn out and help make the club the kind of an organization that every member desires to have. IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU, MEMBERS! INTEREST ON GREAT BRITAIN'S DEBT AMOUNTS TO $200,000,000 There is beginning to be some thing of a strained feeling over the discussion of Great Britain's debt to the United $ . British states men and economists are at a disad vantage in discussing reasons why international debts should be cancel ed, because df the clear inference that they maly be looking at the matter selfishly. Good reasons exist, nevertheless, j'or the cancellation of the debts whi<[h are quite apart from the sentimental idea espoused by Mr. Bryan. Many economists believe that the advantages of cancellation would be greater than if some com prehensive refunding scheme worked out. Manifestly, the great er part of thß debts cannot be paid now, and it is questionable whether any of the nations which owe Uncle Sam except Great Britain and possib ly France cap even pay the interest The British were debt-paying Instinct is quite a tangible thing, and Bri tain will pay unless recoguiton comes, in the United States that the advant ages of debt-cancellation outweigh those of collection. One of the be nefits urged! in behalf of cancella tion of the dpbts is the rehabilitation of foreign exchanges, with a sequent improvement of our foreign trade. Great Britain would stand to gain substantially by general debt cancellaton simply because she Is good for what she owes us, and the vast sums she "has coming" other nations are not collectable and to a larjge degree never will be. The idea of an international Chinese New Year, with each nation forgiv ing the debts of all the others, has taken hold of the United eon from now States H 3 D [ a ■Ê fîV* U5.!llfaSl m.

Maybe public opinion can be changed, but it is hard for the American mind to take Mr. hold of économe ideas. Meanwhile da Great Britain will pay the interest of on her debt it was announcer last week in the House of Commons by Sir Robert Horne, Chancellor of the Exchequer. The interest amounts to £50,000,000, which at the present rate of exchange is Just about $200, 000,000. The debt now stands at apro^imately $4,168,000,000. Of course, Britain pays.
