Evans is a colored soldier boy who had both legs blown off in ac tion. lie lives for the present at Let terman General Hospital at the Pre sidio In San Francisco. He can and does dance fox trots and one-steps. How? Why? Of course lo dance a fox trot or a one step a fellow has to have legs—good legs. Well, Evans has them—not his own legs of flesh atnj bone, but his own willow legs with joints and everything. Ho is going to leave Letterman pretty soon and go hack to work and make Ills living and probably get married and raise children. That's the how. The why of it is—the government of (ha United States has gone in for log and arm making. It is giving a spe cially built leg or arm or hand or a pnir of le s or arms or hands to every soldier who lost ills legs or arms in the war. At Letterman in particular' they are making legs and arms and hands In their own workshop. They are mak ing them because they have hit upon a better artificial limb than the private manufacturers are turning out, not ex cepting the "Liberty Leg" which the government suppfies in most cases. This is cne phase of the reconstruc tion work that Uncle Sam is quietly carrying on. It is cne of-the least ex pensive, but it is costing hundreds of thousands of dollars. Remember that when Uncle Sam come aknocking at your door with tho Victory Liberty Loan. Much of tho money you will lend is going to regenerate these men who guv." of their flesh and blood for their country. A Woman Points the Way „ "Save while the money is warm" is the motto of a Yeoman who has estab lished a reputation both for herself and j her family by the number of War Sav ! ing3 Stamps she bought without appar ! enlly stinting in the least. Here Is her I system: "The only way to save Is to.save. When I have actually saved a quarter i I put it into a thrift stamp without de lay. If 1 save that quarter on one thing and then spend it carelessly for - something eise, I have hot saved any j real money. "For example, the other day I went I down town expecting to pay ?10 for a I pair of special shoes. To my surprise, I j found there was a sale that day, aud I got the very pair of shoes I wanted for 87.75. I- had saved $2.25. But how to : keep it saved. I knew that If 1 simply regarded it mentally as saving, before the end of the month it would be spent mis? Ilancouely. I went right down stairs in the store and bought nine thrift stamps and stuck these quarters in the thrift card where they could not got away before the end of the month. 1 do the same thing when I have saved a single quarter or half dollar, and I am seriously thinking of getting a little penny bank to hold saved pennies or dimes until they grow to thrift stamp size. What is more, I am getting a whole lot of fun out of this most fas cinating game, the game ot 'Getting Ahead,' " fts Dr. Lfvl'ngston FnmtiMuld have | been selected ns the pfflSUKMt bond of the organization. ^iistlütcü faslilon in which alt oui gavei of themselves throughout ft* Wi' is the best nssurnuce that outM Cross will continue to receive tliat co-opv rn tlon which will make its workasouu e of pride and inspiration to even km.

Make sure the other fallow is not talk ing drivel. Analyze Ids thought, don't follow it. He may be suffering with Phraseologie hemorrhage. It is epi demic nowa-days like influenza and much more sériais. , For instance ih regard to the Vic-1 tory Liberty Loan and these fellows who thumb their vests, frown wisely, and say "Let tlie banks do it. They are bursting with money." They aro talking drivel It sounds fine but it isn't good sense. N 01 1 i3 it good economics, which amounts to the same thing. If the government thought it was wise to "let the banks do it," the gov ernment would let them do it. There would be no Victory Liberty. Loan in the popular sense. But tho govern ment knows better than to let tha banks do It. This is the period of reconstruction right now. It is a period of many possibilities economically. One posai .......' ~ bility is industrial depression. One preventative of industrial depression is plenty of money at favorable re.te3 of inter est to stimulate p rivate enter piise. That means our' hanks must not be clogged with government se curities. It means that we can't af ford to "let the banks do it." The people must do it—do it from their earnings, present and future.

Who Must Make Return. It Is estimated that many thousands of single and ninrriojJ persons In this section of the Unted States who have never before made annual returns are required to do so this year. lifcome tux returns must ho made between now anil March 15 by'porsons who come under the following classifi cations : Any unmarried person whose 1918 net income was 81,iK)0 or over.

The produce business was in chaos. Collecting, transportation, preparation and distribution was hit or miss, with delay, deterioration and loss on every hand. The fanner was at the mercy of an uncertain, localized market. He ( had no way of reaching through to the people who needed what he was raising for them. There was no prem ium upon improving his stocks, for grading was lax or lacking. The consumer had to accept produce that, as a rule, had no known respon sible name behind it. He had no way of knowing how long the eggs or the butter he was buying had been lying around in miscellaneous lots in the back rdom of a country store. Much of the poultry was not properly refrigerated before shipment or properly protected by refrigeration in transit. Swift & Company's initiative brer lit system to this chaos. Their organ: >. 1 - tion, equipment, and experience in handling perishable food products v ' e already adjusted to the task. Their refrigerator cars, branch houses, cen tral points, far-reaching connections, trained sales force, supplied just v.hat was demanded.
