Taking Stock For The New Year. The time of the year is about at hand when the men who are engaged in business enterprises will "take stock" to determine whether they have igalned or lost from a financial stand point during the past twelve months. Generally, stock-taking follows In mercantile! establishments soon after the first day of the new year. The purpose of this is several fold, the most important, of course, being to ascertain whether money is being made or lost. Another purpose is to wipe itha slat as clean as possible, to start another year with as few embarrass ments .as possible, and to avoid the places where mistakes had been made. No reputable mercantile house will attempt to do business without taking stock at least once each year. The risk would be too groat. The owners must know what they are doing. There is something that is even gTeater than business which concerns very Individual; in fact, without it, there can be no successful business, and that something is CHARACTER. How many people stop and make an Inventory of , their character for twelve months past. No doubt the number is few, but every- man has more invested In his character than he has in his business, however large that business is. The man who reviews, his life for twelve months past, who takes stock of the good and the wrong that he has done, and finds on, which side of the ledger the balance is, will be sure to derive some benefit from the Inspection, Just as the merchant de rives benefit in finding how his re ceipts and expenditures have been for the past year. Character can be ""improved from year to year the same as business. In truth, like business It seldom stands still; it either gains or loses. This being tru is It not well that stock &e taken of one's own character dur ing each year, and an effort made to Improve It? There is no better rule to go by in taking stock of character than the rule of conscience. A clear, calm con science will not give approval to wrong doing and stock can be taken and the rule easily applied. Many believe the world is growing better. It should be doing so, and a close tab on character and con science, will undoubtedly help to make It grow better. Billboard Eyesores Attract Attention of Visitors A few days ago, The Journal directed attention to the desirability of curb ing the extension of the billboard nui sance in Pensacola. By a singular coincidence, a letter received simultaneously with the pub lication of the editorial called atten tion to the same subject. That letter, from a lady who has taken an inter est in such work elsewhere, appears in these columns today. "We want Pensacola to be beautiful. "Ve want It to be beautiful for our own people first, but we want Its beauty to attract the favorable atten tion and comment of Visitors as welL We want a city that will attract vls 9tors her, that will cause them to praise It to their friends when they leave, and that will Induce them to come again and bring others with them. A city fre from the billboard eye-core- will have a big talking point for Inducing our friends from abroad to xtiAt rxm. And, after all, tbe billboard serves no useful purpose. No one, except those financially Interested in it, wants the monstrosity. Why not abolish It? .A Hot One. The Post-Dispatch finds that suicide Is Increasing in this country.

ARMSTRONG DISCUSSES BROKEN BANK AND BOND ISSUE Editor Pensacola Journal. The statement just made public by the receivers of the Pensacola State Hank . must have put all serious citi zens to some very serious thinking. When they read of the plans of our commissioners to sell the bonds, au thorized last spring, there is yet more ground for serious thought. I quote from a paper of recent date that seems to paraphrase Commissioner Johnson: "It is argued that the- need of municipal docks overbalances the several thousand dollars that the city may or may not lose by immediately placing' the bonds." Now 'this careless disregard of "sev eral thousand dollars" is rather shock ing to our sense of values these days. The public is gravely doubting as to how much of the $165,000 the city can receive from the late wreck. The as surance that a suit has been instituted against the two bonding companies for $125,000 (not the entire $165,000 in volved) does not reassure at all. It is'commonly believed that the liability of the surety companies ended No vember 1 or 2. All hope the conten tion of the city attorney is correct and that we are at least partially in sured against loss. But. even so, there is a difference between the amount of city deposits and the security claimed of ?40,000. It seems a remarkable fact that out of $270,000 deposits in the bank, $165.- 000, or some 60 per cent of the whole, should have belonged to the city, and it seems all the more remarkable when the precarious condition of the bank has been the subject of common com ment for months. One cannot help thinking of these extraordinary facts when it is pro posed to sell bonds, even if at a loss of "several thousand dollars." The city seems to have a security against this new loss. The opinior of the bond attorneys, Dillon, Thomson and Clay, as stated in their letter to our mayor, Is that the bonds may be sold 'at not less than the par value thereof." Now, the stare of Xew York is Just marketing through its comp troller not through a broker some fifty year bond;? at the same interest ours are to hear, 4 1-2 per cent, and with no securing good prospect of get ting much above par. New York city bonds with forty-four years to run are quoted at 103 and less, and these bear the same interest as ours, 4 1-2 per .cent. With such a marketr after paying brokerage commissions, vhat chance have we to get a price that will make the bonds "valid and legally binding?" It would be interesting to have an esti mate of just how much we might profitably lose on the sale of our thirty year bonds. And, Mr. Editor, it would be more interesting still to know how many of those who voted for the bond issue would like to see those bonds sold now and have the proceeds turned over to tnr present city commissioners, after our recent experience with their finan cial management. This Is one of those questions that Is above personal considerations; that should be discussed in and out of press. Yours truly, , 11. CLAY ARMSTRONG.
