"Take silk shirts," he observed, "and let us see where \va- come out. In my own case 1 am the proud possess or of one of them, and it is all 1 can afford. When I want to splurge a little 1 put it on and sail forth to tantilize the sight of those who are not fortunate enough to own so lux urious an article of apparel." Now, undoubtedly, that man could have af forded many silk shirts, if he de cided to buy them: but that is not bis idea of thrift. The incident stuck in my mind, and a few days later when I was tak ing in a bargain where two-fifty shirts were sold for one-sixty-five, asked the merchant whether he sold many shirts. He said that the line was "booming." and in reply to my questioning the facts were brought out that whereas these shirts sold for from î-'> to $7 apiece before the war, with not many purchasers, that they seldom sell for less than $10 1 nowadays; and every Tom. Dick and Harry buys them. "Why, people who hardly had a whole shirt to their back two or tree years ago, come in here and buy several silk shirts at a time," volunteered the merchant. He added: "A lot of them can't af ford to splurge so, but they have more money than they ere accustom ed to handle and they keep it rolling. Some buy expensive garments in silk shirts, and silk hose never had such You see the evidence of uni a run. versal richness in the hotels and th«* at the theatres, and in restaurants, the lanes of new automobiles." he went on. "and while some people are cautiously saving their money, ) ery «till there are mighty few that have not developed some kind of expen sive notions, and silk shirts simply usual method by serve as a very which the poor show how rich they feel. confided, "a man looks longingly aj then while," he Once in a great our stock of silk shirts, and •I can't afford one. though And whenever this happen 1 says, want it.'

WH/li FORM IXK'AL POST OF AMERICAN LEGION Tomorrow evening, Friday, Sep tember 19th, all returned soldiers, sailors and marines should meet at -Masonic hall at 7:30 o'clock to take steps toward the formation of a loc al post of the American Legion. The Grand Army organization in a very few years will be extinct, ow ing to all the members having passed out, and the grand and noble work which they have carried on since the days of the rebellion will be taken up by their grandsons, who won even a greater war than the Grand Army men did. The committee in charge of the American Legion's Jerome post con sists of Harry Nims, C. it. Hurky and Dr E. U. Piper.

CONTRIBUTED LIBERALLY' A subscription was taken up by J. H. Grenzeback to defray the ex penses of the Jerome brass band at the Eden fair, he being authorized to do so by the Jerome committee on arrangements for said event. Grenzeback soon found that he would either have to slight some of the business people by not asking them to contribute, or he would have more money than was needed to pay the band boys for their day's work. How ever, he went on soliciting, and the surplus, amounting to a couple hun dred dollars or so, will be given to the band organization to buy instru ments. music or whatever equipment they may need. They were sorely in need of funds to buy equipment, and this little sum coming in at the op portune moment will help to solve the problem for them.
