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

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

The amount of gas you use is deteqmiaed
very largely by the way your appliances are
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
