What America Needs
What this country needs is not a
new birth of freedom but the old fash
ioned $2 lower birth.
What this country needs isn't more
liberty but less people who take li
berties with our liberty.
What this country need* is not a
job for every man but a real man for
every job.
What this country needs isn't to
get more taxes from the people but
for the people to get more from the
What this country needs is not
more miles of territory, but more
miles to the gallon.
What thi» country needs is more
tractors and less detractors.
What this country needs isn't more
young men making speed but more
young men planting spuds.
What thi* country needs is more
paint on the old place and less paint
on the young face.
What this country needs isn't a

editor in a moment of sober
thought says:
"After letting their little daughter
play and decorate her doll with a
glass pin which her father had picked
up ten years ago, the parents learned
the glass was a diamond vauled at
"A change of thought created an
entirely new atmosphere. A plain j
piece of 'glass' turned out to he n dia
mond. it always was a diamond, hut '
those who had it knew not its vnlue
until some fine pointed it out to them,
and the 'glass' they had had for ten !
years at once took on a new luster |
and interest. The world is full of j
'diamonds which the majority of us !
do not see until one who has prepared
himself to distinquish between the
real and the unreal come* along, and j
then we get excited—all over M j
change of thought. Acres of dia-;
mends are all about us, but we go : ,
, .
racing off in%> unknown parts in
. - „
search of them." .
J ^ CITY is spick and span, well kept,
beautiful, when its individual
homes arc neat and attractive, when
its vacant lota are not eyesores. The
city is a collection of details. If these |
details are neglected, the whole city I
looks slovenly.
A man may think it makes no dif
ference if he is a little careless around
hi* home, if he lets the lawn become
unkempt. If he dumps trash in a va
cant lot. But such carelessness on the
part of one family may ruin an at
tractive block, and one slovenly block
may hurt a whole neighborhood.
Such piatters as cards tacked on
poles, advertising signs on boulevards
and residence neighborhoods, weeds
annd tin cans on vacant lots, may be
small matters in any particular in-1
stance. out when such things
cumulate they make the city look
the heel.
pCCAUSE he lived a clean life
"Christy" Mathewson is back
home in Factoryville, I*a., today al
most restored to health. He may
have to return to the Adirondack
for a time to complete the cure, but
he has conquered in the battle
against the dread disease, tuberculo
Never in all the years when he was
the idol of the lutseball world did
"Matty" give a greater exhibition of
courage than in the long-drawn-out
struggle for his life. He had one
chance in a thousand and he won. And
he won as he did many of his ball
games—on his courage.
There'» opportunity for clergy
men to preach sermons on the life of
this fine specimen of the Christian
and the athlete. He played the game
of baseball fairly, honestly, always
giving the best that was in him. So
far as is known, he never took a mean
advantage of a
rival player, never
resorted to an unworthy trick, but
always "played the game."
If he hadn't led a clean life, he
woudn't be alive today.
Great as he was at the height of
his career on the diamond
is greater today, for he has fought
the good fight and won.
When he returned to his old home
town the whole population turned out
to welcome him.
In business as in baseball, it is the
man who plays the game fairly and
courageously who commands respect
and who has the real key to success.
It is quite the thing for one who
speaks in public to tell a few jokes
first and then pull a long face and
?jve his auditors his good reasons for
believing that the world today is rush
ing headlong to perdition.
But it isn't.
The imminent end of the world has
been predicted ever since the woi id
was begun.
Since night was first divided from
day we have had "with us this even
ing'' the man who croaked of the bet
ter times that used to be. The advent
of historic mankind brought at once
a group of mourners for the prehis
toric animals. It needs no "Outline
of History" to prove that the ante
diluvan planet was a delightful re
sort. It knew no income tax, no smoke
nuisance, no irksome prohibition, no
superflous noises, no sessions of Con
gress, no campaigns and drives for
charity, no transit congestion. What
a delightful world to occupy!
Then, at long range, with the en
chantment lent by distance, always
looks far more lusterful and glamor
ous than now. A man in the retro
spect of boyhood forgets all but the
fun of it, the freedom, the irresponsi
bility. He doesn't remember the
crosses. All drudgery and repression
have faded from remembrance; the
play-times stand photographically
clear in the golden light. The race it
self looks back on its early days even
as onPby one we recall the episodes of
ovr childhood behind us forever.

Now and then some fellow bobs up

Thank You
Thank you, Captain Morning, for the
gift you bring to me
Of beauty on the hills of light that
top the singing sea.
Thank you for the spirit to be up and
on my way
To the toil that makes the meaning
of life's duty day by day.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for
the happiness you bring
To the toiler in the trenches, to the
clown and to the king.
Thank you, Captain Morning, for the
kiss of light and air,
For the hope and faith and courage
that defeat the aims of care.
For the strength and joy and purpose
to be off and face the strife
For the sake of simple service in the
golden tasks of life.

A traveling man whose avoirpois
was considerably past the 200 mark
was leaving town the other day and
while he was buying his ticket the
train started to pull out. The train
often stopped at the watering pipe
and coal bin for water or coal. Think
ing it would do the same thing this
time the man made a desperate run
down the platform carrying two
large valises in an effort to catch the
train. But it did not stop for water
or coal that day, so he did not suc
ceed in catching it. He came back to
the station sweating profusely and
feeling not a little unkindly of mind.
"Were you trying to catch the
train," inquired a bystander.
"No, you d-n fool, I was just
chasing it out of town," the salesman
irritably sputtered.

A Jew purchased a horse and sent
his son to a livery stable to find out
how much it would cost to board it.
Johnny came back and said the price
was $25 a month. "Go back and Jew
him down." said the J»tu to his sen.
When his son returned the eecond
time he said the liveryman had cut
the price to $20. The Jew promptly
sent him back again and when he re
turned he announced that he had Jew
ed the liveryman down to $15. The
Jew then sent him back still again.
The boy didn't stay very long and
when he came back he told his father
that it was no use. "He won't take
no less than $15 a month," he said.
"Well," said the father, "go back and
find out how much he'll give us for
the horse's manure." When the boy
returned he looked dejected. "What
did he say?" asked the father. "No
'He told me
use," replied the boy.
there ain't no manure at $15 a month."
May Have Sunday Train
The O. S. L. Ry. Co., is consider
ing a proposal whereby Emmett will
have a train to Nampa on Sundays,
and passengers will be able to
nect with the main line on Sunday
as well as week days. This wili mean
that tht Saturday train to the Lakes
will return Sunday instead of Monday
and there will be no down train
Fruit and other produce and freight}
could be shipped every day of the
week instead of having to lay over
until Monday, which would be espe
dally beneficial at this time of the
year. Such a change would also en
able the train crews to spend Sunday
with their families at he lotwer end of
