M. A. Brown Followed bv a Welcome Ball HELP YOURSLuF More than 150 years ago Benjamin Franklin wrote: "Keep your shop and |t will keep you." The stamp of great ness is on Franklin's philo ouhv be cause it was not alone of his time; it holds for all time. Our ways have changed a bit in the j economic life o£ this republic which the great Franklin helped to build. No longer may every man be his own shopkeeper. Most of us help keep some other fellow's shop and a certain element among the assistant shop keepers have become restless because ! they have no shop themselves and call i themselves I. W. W., Bolsheviks, and j other names. i and child in America the chance to keep shop. Each rerson is allowed to Nevertheless Franklin's homely say ing is as true today and as easy to comply with as it was the day h9 ut tered it. The United dates govern ment provides the way. War Savings and Thrift stamps, conceived as a war measure and now \ backed by the government as a per- | maucut policy, give every man. woman put $1000 a year into the busiuess— the husiness of American government. The business guarantees 4 per cent per annum compounded quarterly. It is the biggest business in the world. One can invest as low as 25 cents, The wonderful thing about it is that the investor helps his country as well as himself. ill Advices from Hon. George L. McGowan, representative from Custer county who is now at Boise attending tin present session of the leg! la ture, arc to the effect that ite has received the promise from the engineering depart ment of the Slate ih . h\v >. commission that the high iway between this point am Pahsamaroi will be worked upon as soon as the weath cr will permit. Mr. McGow an is tendered the hearty thanks of the people of tbit section for his efforts in their behalf. In the past Challis business men and ranchers have made many efforts to better road conditions between this city land Pahsamaroi valley but have always met with oppo sition and defeat. At a mass meeting held in this city recently the proper ty inti, rests ol Round valley voted unanimously to ask "he county commissioners to rse all road money received ror this valley this year in the Pahsamaroi valley to gether with the road mon eys of that place. This it is hoped will relieve the road conditions there to a great extent. ^ j We only give this news to . the public in order that all j might know that Chains and Round valley are making, honest efforts to help Pah samaroi in the matter of im proving her roads, which are, to sav the least in a de ... - ... plorable condition.
