A brother said or did something that suited Him not. So He slew His brother. In the eyes of what some call "The Law," He may or may not have been guilty; before God he violated the Command ment which reads; "Thou shalt not kill!" He was ordered to Jail, pend ing sucli time a3 He might have a trial by a jury of His oeers. In Oklahoma, a liberal State, one charged with murder may be ad mitted to bail by the Criminal Court of Appeals, if there are specially ex tenuating circumstances. But some other places are more liberal, and the aforesaid Jail chanced to be in one of the aforesaid places. He was not confined, excepting at night when His brothers slept. During the day. He was at liberty to roam about meeting, greeting and conversing with His brothers. He even succeed ed in getting on the debit side of the ledger with several merchants about Town, who would naturally prefer that some day He might be able to cause a corresponding entry to be made on the credit side. And, generally speaking, He proves Him self to be not such a bad felow after all. So when His peers were finally asked to say "Guilty" or "Not Guilty," having seen Him when He was on His good behavior and hav ing been duly impressed thereby, being plastic like most members of the human species land susceptible to pity, His peers so said, one and all, "He Is not guilty."

Stewart, national prohibition cam paign manager, this morning says: "Returns Indicate that the drys have added the four states of Michigan, South Dakota, Nebraska and Mon tana. Arkansas has also been saved a sinking fund an amount sufficient to retire all the bonds when they be come due. The sinking fund is de posited with banks and earns some interest. This interest ordinarily is only three per cent, where as the county has to pay 5 or 6 per cent to its bondholders. The serial plan is a much, cheaper method for rais ing money for road improvements, even when the sinking fund earns in terest as high as 4 per cent, and in the opinion of the road specialists of the department should be util ized whenever it is possible to mar ket serial bonds. In a study of the road bond Iss ues of several counties, J. E. Penny backer and M. O. Eldridge, of the division of road economics, office of public roads and rural engineering, found that the serial plan, if it had been addopted by several counties, would have saved the taxpayers in one county $154,269, in another county $S0,702, and in a third coun ty $G5,367 over the other plan with a sinking fund bearing Interest at 3 per cent. With a sinking fund earning 4 per cent, the saving would have run as high as $72,288 in one of these counties. These conclusions appear in the recently published Department Bulletin 393, Econom ic Surveys of County Highways and Improvement The following concrete examples are taken from the bulletin. "In Dallas county, Ala., the bonds amounted to $350,000, payable in 30 years at 5 per cent. Assuming the sinking fund to bear 3 per cent interest, as set forth In the chapter on Dallas county, the total financial burden to the county for interest and the liquidation of the bonds during the 30-year period will be $745,702.80. An equal amount of bonds at the same rate of interest if issued under the deferred serial bond method, with the first bonds 6 years from the date of issuance and an equal amount payable each year thereafter for 24 years, would cost the county at the end of the 30 ' years $665,000, or a difference, as compared with the sinking-fund method. of $80,702. If four per cenf could be realized on the sinking fund instead of 3 per cent, the saving for the deferred serial plan over the sinking fund plan would be $47,216, "Lauderdale County, Miss., which issued $500,000 of 5 and 5 per cent bonds, adopted the deferred ser ial-bond method, with the first pay ment coming 11 years from the date of issue and the last payment 25 years. If the county had issued the bonds on the 5-25-year basis the cost would have been $906,875, as compared with the cost on the basis adopted of $972,232, or a difference of $65,367." Even in the case of small Issue the advantage of the serial plan is Illustrated in Dinwlddie county, Va. This county issued $105,000 of 5 and 6 per cent bonds, payable in 30 years, but the bonds are called after Special to the Record.
