And who wauls to be a pessi mist when every human instinct ?spurs us on to optimism? lint's demonstrate our faith in the retail! el prosperity by recognizing the fact that it is here and by doing our share to? ward hi maintenance in ibis community. Let the watchword be piediic linn, wisdom in spending, and the employment of a systematic course of saving. A proportionale amount of ihe proBpority of the country belongs to the people of this community. Let's get all we citri and keep all wo get. Other communities will be ?b ing the same. Watson lo the Rescue. Thomas hJ, Watson, the new t'nitid Staiis Senator from (lootgut, is to introduce a bill in the Senate making liberty bonds legal tender. This would put lliein on a par with the na? tional currency and restore Ihcui to at least par value. If the government ever hopes to sell another bond in this country in time of emergency it will do well to protect the b mil holders now. Ii requires simply an act of Congress to make every one of these bond.' legal lender. 'Thai would require every person to accept (bein in payment of oh ligtttious just the same as cur? rency . They would possess an added ndvantage over currency in that Ihey would be drawing interest where cuiri.'ric) docs not. The) would become a posses? sion of value even to the small investor, whereas how they arc but a despised and depreciating drug in (he market. It's clearly up lo our Uncle Samuel, so shrewd in many things tint so blind ill this, for Some of these days he may need the wherewithal lo again patch his pants. > Ami the dear ami confiding public lias a disagreeable habit of remembering disagreeable Illings. We often lind fault with people when we should extend to them our sympathy instead. It's a hard matter to tiiid brains io a bead if Ood Almighty didn't put any there. Making Money Fly. Making money tly in ?II right, provided it flieo to a purpose end collects iuieroatnn the way. Hut too many people forget the purpose and lose the inter? est. It requires time, energy and perseverance to earn money, hut it needs only a moment of foolishness to make it tly. At the beginning of a new year of uuecttuinly it might be well for us to take a few of these little lessons to heart. The mightiest of trees spring fiom little roots, hut each year they grow, and thrive, until in time the) become giants of tho forests. They never lly. 'I he greatest of fortunes found their inceptier> in humble he winnings There was much saving, hut no Hying. The prosperity ot llus com? munity id ponds upon its tiro ductiveness ami the ability of its people to save. Saving is a little word, hut it is the cornerstone upon which ?vory giant commercial enter? prise is reared. The wise man spends without ?tiut for that which lie needs, hut he regulates his require incuts to allow for a liberal amount of systematic saving. People who save not in youth have not in old age. Where the inclination is lacking no incentive exists, and without an incentive there is little future to life. Work, save, and you will al ?vdj s have. Make it lly, and you will soon be in want. Your Home Town Papor. When people want to interest distant friends in their home town they semi away copies of the local newspaper. When any one wants to know what kind of a place a distant town is he sends for a copy of the local new-paper. When (he merch? ants are full of courage and ad vertise freely an impression is created among the many people outside the lowii who seethe pa? per that this is an exceedingly bright and wide-awake business town. if, at limes, the merch? ant)! let up a little on their ad? vertising the town doc- not look so good to outsiders. Your pa per, then, is the representative? I he spokesman?for your com? munity. As your paper ap? pears to those outside your im? mediate locality, so must your town appear to them. Editorials and items of news all have their place, hut the stranger to your town will closely follow the ad? vertisements carried in yaiir pa? per, for by this means he judges lite character and extent ot tue business of tin- community.?
