XXIX FEBRUARY 23, 1922 No. 42 TIME THIEVES ROB THEMSELVES A desire to practice the gentle art of getting something for nothing seems to have been inherent in man since the earliest time, but to date the scheme has not proved a success. Some analysts tell us that no desire is Implanted in the human breast that is impossible of attainment, but it is doubtful if any way ever9will be found-and it is hoped it won't-whereby man can live without labor. True, buying in a cheap market and selling in a dear market seems nothing more than an effort to pinch off a part of some one's labor and set it aside for future use, yet this is the crux of modern trade. Sometimes It is urged as an excuse for the parasite who lives on the labor of his fellows and performs no useful service in the world, but it is at best a poor excuse. The noblest of work, of course, is that of the farmer, the man who wrests from the soil the life-giving forces for the human kind. We can't all be farmers. Many of us wouldn't want to be these days. But we can all play our part and do an honest day's productive work in our respective spheres, and we can all realize the fundamental truth that we cannot rob our employers of the time and ability they pay us for without robbing ourselves. Prosperity means ample production and efficient distribution. We can never enjoy what we do not produce. The drone in the hive must be frowned upon. He is like the deadly upas that blights the thing it touches. All hands to work. The bell has rung. Let's go, and then see things hum. Business activity is purely a state of mind. HOMEY PHILOSOPHY FOR 1922 Doesn't it make you smile when you hear some Irreligious smart Aleck laughing in hs sleeve when he is told to have faith? He thinks he's wiser than the crowd, and can't see a thing in faith. Then he goes his way to make a fortune in some business that he never would start if he didn't have faith. Faith Is the foundation of all human effort, just as much as Truth Is the one thing the humap race is bound to search for,"and Just as sure as Love Is the world's compelling dynamo. Faith, Truth, Love-three aces. Add deals to inspire, and Courage to persist, an' we have a full hand, it sees.

Then again it was to the credit of the ladies and lassies of 21 and over in which the neat, legible way the tally sheets were tabulated and signed - distinctly, properly; not scribbled hastily as brother man's was done-indistinct, bad. So, Mister Man, instead of writing on the ballot, as one of ."Meistir Ry-na's" Italian constituents voted for him, signing his name in full across the face of the ballot, you will have to learn to VOTE from now on correctly, and not "spoiled," with NOT the chance of doing it as often (as old-timers and dead ones used to do), as women have already learned, to vote and are doing it ably and well.

Thle Herald. aJU Ve'rret Street. DON'T BE ,A SLACKER. My observation of the marriage question is: The trouble with most women lies in their carelessness about personal apparance. How often hubby comes home at night and finds his wife in her dirty ktt chen apron! Every 'woman dress-'s to please man. Remember the war you used, to doll up when he was keeping company with you? Why not keep his admiration now, the way you tried to gain it then? Go out to an occas:onal show or dance with your husband in t* e evening: don't always be tired. A man who has worked all day needs diversion and amusement. Don't be a slacker on the wife Job. If you don't give him affection and com radeship. he's golng to look for it elsewhere sooner or later. When women loot upon marriage as a partnership, not as an endless round of housework, or making the best of what they got into, a big step will be taken toward happier, more successful marriages.

The amount of gas you use is deteqmiaed very largely by the way your appliances are arranged. One of our customers occupied an upstairs apartment. Her water heater was located in a small room in the rear of the apartment. Her bath room was in the front of the apartment. The hot waer had to travel from the heater, down to thy ground, underneath the ground the full length of the building, and then up to the bath room on the second floor. It took the water eleven seconds to run from the heater to the bath tab. In other words, the gas heater began operating eleven seconds before the ,ot water could be used. That sounds like a smalt matter, but when that much wasted gas goes through a meter several times a day, . in the course of a month the amount is very large, and the result is a large bill on the first of the month. The same care should be exercised in the arrangement of your gas appliances as you would exehiie in placing your telephone where it could be reached in the shortest pos sible time and with the fewest number of steps. We have men employed who can and will show you hqw to arrange your appliances so as to save time and money.
