On of the moot difficult and at the
eame time moat essential ot habits to
form la that ot saving. Of course,
there are many persona In all walks
of life who, although they are in com
fortable circumstances, are bo penuri
ous as to be absolutely opposed to
parting even with their pennies. Their
very lives are controlled by the idea
of getting along with as little as pos
sible eren at the risk of earning for
themselves a reputation for stingi
ness. Such persons, however, make
up a class all to themselves, and gen
erally deserve the contempt in which
they are held by their fellow-beings.
On the other hand, the spendthrift de
serves as much, it not more, condem
nation, perhaps, for the facility with
which he allows his often hard-earned
money to slip through his bands.
There is a golden mean net ween these
two extremes of character and it is
found In the ability of a man to save
from his earnings sufficient for the
proverbial rainy day. The advantages
ot saving may be demonstrated to us
In many ways and on many occasions,
but It remains for necessity to im
press its importance upon our minds.
It may be that the manner of living
may account in large measure for the
universal habit of spending all that
we make the opportunities for doing
so are very great and at the same
time seem very real and imperative,
and it Is only after the pocket is emp
ty and we face stern necessity that
we are able to discriminate between
-opportunity and temptatfcn.
Palestine Is fast becoming one of
the great orange-growing countries of
the world. Much fruit of excellent
quality Is being shipped every year to
London and other markets in north
ern Europe, and this year the crop of
the district near Jaffa, the port of
Jerusalem, Is estimated at 1,600.000
boxes. Farther up the Syrian coast
Tyre and Sidou are expected to reach
a total of 400,000 cases of oranges ex
ported and 00.000 cases of Itmous
For a small country Palestine has
many Interesting and valuable prod
ucts Its olive groves are as produc
tive as they are ancient, and its vine
yards yield grapes ot fine quality in
great abundance. Notwithstanding: the
drawback of a sometimes very defici
ent and usually scanty water supply,
Syria produces a large quantity of ex
cellent food. But it is not easy to
think of Palestine's exports of oranges
without thinking of the Immeasurably
more important exports and Ideas
and ideals from that little country.
By comparison with the moral and
spiritual forces which have gone out
from Syria to enrich the world, all the
products of the soil which can be
shipped from the ports as long as the
earth shall endure will be of little

The United States consul at Prague
says there are practically no flies In
Bohemia. He attributes the phenome
non to the fact that "everything Is
