If you have a, good income—good wages—don't spend every cent of it—no, not if you are a very poor man or a Very rich man. Pile up something at The Citizens National Bank of Corinth in a 4 per cent Savings Account. The spent dollar earns no interest. In the very last analysis the onlv money of value to you is the money that is here in your CITIZENS National Savings Ac count.

Supt. >-**; - v BY New-Fangled Gown Caused of a Confusion at New York -Dance. • i One of those new-fangled trains be came unswitched at a recent dance at the Claridge, according to the NewTork Times, and when the owner discovered her loss she and the man at the desk had a lot of trouble. It that the new train is made so that it can be worn or not worn, just as the owner of the freak to which it belongs fancies. When her friends expressed their admiration of Mrs. Camille Roe's new frock, all went merry as a mar riage bell until one of these friends became so enthusiastic over the way Mrs. Roe managed her new train that the latter drew out of the dance to explain. "You see, it is like this," she began, catching at her skirt. She caught in vain. There was nothing but the skirt. The train had left the station. After a hurried search about the room, Mrs. Roe.went out to see*if the train had arrived at the desk. "I've lost my train," she announced, somewhat breathlessly. The clerk immediately got out his train guide. He thought she was a commuter who had overstayed her time limit in town, and that she wished to catch a later train. "New Haven or New York Central, ma'am?" he inquired, sympathetically, as he hurriedly turned over"the leaves. The lady explained. The clerk rum maged among the things under the "Nothing like a train here, ! h^pl seÄns I ' counter. ma'am," he reported. "The only thing we have is a girdle that the assistant manager picked up and turned in here a little while ago." He held it up. It the train Mrs. Roe had missed. was Pretty soon it was flying through a one-step, but its ordinary couplings had been re-enforced with small safety pins. RISKS OF RED CROSS WORK I Doctors Who Operate on the Field Under Fire Require Nerves That Are Steady. In the fighting area Red Cross work are running greater risks than they have ever done in past campaigns. Those who succor the wounded do not wait until the end of a battle be fore they commence their humane work, neither do they remain in safety some distance at the rear, bers of the wounded in modern_battla are too great for that, and assistance must be given to them on the battle field itself, with shot and shell whis tling around. Surgeons now make their way along the trenches under ! heavy fire, carrying small surgical which contain a number of ab ers now The num cases solutely necessary medicines. These include pain-killing drugs, such as morphine, antiseptics and syringes. On the wounded soldier himself a flrst-aid . outfit can be found, as every military man carries in his knapsack a little packet of antiseptic gauze and a roll, of bandages. The surgeon makes his ] patient as comfortable as possible and if he can, drags him to a point where j the bursting shells are not likely to | injure him. Then, on his hands and knees; the plucky worker makes his way along the rows of dead and wounded, taking as many, if not more, risks than the "Tommies" themselves. ; j j » I Of course, working under such try* j ing conditions the surgeon cannot do all he would wish for the wounded. By means of injections from his hypo- j dermic syringe he temporarily allevi ates their pain, and in serious cases j stops bleeding by tightly knotted j bandages placed round the injured limb, while broken bones he puts in I a "splint," provided, in many instances by the stricken soldier's bayonet. An Institute of Agriculture. More scientific farming resulting in lower food prices in cities is the avowed object of the free institute of agriculture which has been in prog rees in New York city throughout 20 1 weeks of the present year. The in stitution depends upon co-operation between the national department of agriculture, Columbia university and the New York state department of agriculture. It is intended that per sons who intend to go into farming shall be better prepared for this pur pose, while thostTwho are not fitted for that occupation may he deterred from attempting it. It is also the hope that abandoned farms near the city may be subjected to proper de velopment. Saving the Babies. A recent mayor of Huddersfield of fered one pound to every mother who brought to him a year-old baby of a certain weight, and the result was that a great many babies which used to die did not die. The babies at the end of the year not tfnly came np alive but they| came up to weight. In commenting on this fact, Bernard Shaw said Mr. Broadbent knew that a pound extra in a baby at a certain age was an enormous municipal profit.*— The Living Church. In Your Own Home Town.
