Re cent statements from various sections, from Los Angeles to New York, show that since the armistice was signed the savings banks of the country have flooded with deposits. New York State recently passed the $2,000,000, 000 mark, with the number of depos itors running up to more than 3,500, 000. The deposits piled steadily up through the war period. A statement covering savings deposits in all banks other than national, issued in Febru ary, 1919, showed that the amount arose from 16,147,592,232 in 1913 to $7,727,007,971 in 1918. In the latter part of May savings banks of Los Angeles reported depos its of approximately $160,000,000. The U. S. Postal Savings Banks found January and February of the present year exceptionally big months for savings. The Postal Savings banks have con ducted only very limited educational campaigns in the past, and the credit for big increases is freely given to the work done in the Savings Stamp campaigns. Persons who get the thrift habit practice it in savings deposits as well as in Thrift and Savings Stamp purchases, it has been thown.

ECONOMY IN FARM BUILDINGS Cheapness of construction, if it af fects the strength or durability, is poor economy" in farm buildings. Strength and durability are essentials. There is some danger of making build ings too expensive. They should be in keeping with the value of the land and the stock and grain which they are to shelter. City bred farmers are apt to spend too much money on farm buildings. Often, a misguided wealthy man will invest a largo amount in a farm building, hoping that it will he a model for his neighbors. Building? should, like all farm investments, pay intorest on the investment. There is more danger, however, that the build ings will be too cheap than too expen sive, the present high cost of build ing materials will be responsible for that. Missouri farmers are demanding better buildings. Due to increased prices, better care is being taken of all farm products. Live stock must have better shelter. Hay and grain must be carefully protected from the weather. Better living conditions for the family are necessary. In response to this demand for better buildings, the agricultural engineering depart ment of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture has prepared a list of building plans which has been issued as Circular 69. The plans list ed do not cover the entire field of farm buildings, but new plans are constant ly being added and the department may be able to supply just what yau need. A Traveling Man's Experience You may learn something from the following by W. H. Ireland, a travel ing salesman of Louisville, Ky. "In the summer of 1 had a severe at tack of cholera morbus. I gave the hotel porter fifty cents and told him to buy me a bottle Of Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy and to take no substitute. I took a double dose of it according to the directions and went to sleep. At five o'clock the next morning I was called by my or der and took a train far my next stop ping place, a well man.'

Democrat ic efficiency versus Republican ex travagance and carelessness is forc ibly and impressively shown by ex cerpts from a table giving the cost to Missouri of criminal cases, State dis bursements for the apprehension of criminals and the suppression of out lawry, and for the execution and en forcement of civil laws, covering the 79 years from November 30, 1840, to Dec. 31, 1918, a compilation by the Republican State Auditor, Geo. B. Hackmann, given publicity through the "Report of the State Auditor, 1917-1918," a volume published bien nially for free distribution to tax pay ers. Write for a copy. During the. first half of the term of the present Democratic Governor, Frederick D. Gardner, years 1917 and litis, the state of Missouri, with an estimated July 1, 1918, population of paid s;i&u,izs as "costs in criminal cases," nnd $9,483 for the apprehension of criminals and sup pression of outlawry," a total of $3u9,till. In contrast is the first two years of the administration of the Re publican Governor, Herbert S. Had ley, 1909 and 1910, Missouri's popula tion then being 3,292,335, or a little over 7.1 per cent less than what it is now, during which the State paid $434,333 cs "costs in criminal cases," $7,419 for the "apprehension of crim inals and suppression of outlawry," and $4G,154 for the "execution and en forcement of civil law," a total of $488,106. The figures just submitted being compiled by a Republican State Au ditor and appearing in '.'Table No. 48", on pago 719 .Report of the State Au ditor, 1917 and 1918", are official and therefore cannot be disputed by any doubting "gop" (the psendonym for a member of the German-American-Africa G. O. P.). With a larger population to hold in check and the disturbed conditions of the war to contend jvith, through gen eral efficiency and a business-like ad ministration of all problems, criminal and otherwise. Governor Gardner kept his total criminal costs for the State, the two-year period 1917 and 1918, $128,185 lower than was the case dur ing the two-year period 1909 and 1910, when Hadley was Governor and times were less chaotic, a saving to Missou ri taxpayers through competent and efficient democratic rule of over 35.7 per cent. Cost Records Broken Back to 1881-1882 The best part of the record-breaking smallness of the cost to the State for criminal cases of the first two years of Governor Gardner's term as executive helmsman is still to be told. The total disbursements of Missouri for this purpose during the two years considered not only out shines any accomplishment in this respect by the Hadley regime but al so breaks all similar democratic rec ords for any two years back to the two-year period, 1881-1882, when the total State's share of criminal costs only reached $312,783. But Missouri's population then was only 2,168,380, or 38.5 per cent less than what it is now. Omitting the two-year period, 188) -1882, the State criminal costs of 1917 and 1918 and going back still further, holds the record for smallness down to the two-year period, 1871-1872, a biennial epoch for which the total reached $353,559 with a State popu lation then of only 1,750,000. The second half of the Hadley ad ministration, the years 1911 and 1912, witnessed a disbursement by the State of $478,014 for costs in crimi nal cases, aand $9,069 for the appre hension of criminals and the suppres sion of outlawry, a total of $487,081. ror the first six months of the second half of Governor Gardner's term, the state s share of criminal cost equall ed but did not exceed those of any six months period of the first two years. A Neat State Treasury Nest-Egg This even gait, if it continues, and it will unless serious riots, or race, or labor troubles break out somewhere in Missouri between now and the close of 1920, will save the commonwealth taxpayers, approximately $255,000 over tho total spent for the same pur pose during the entire Hadley administration. State criminal costs the four-vear periods of both the Major and the Hadley administrations were nearly even totaling $975,403 for the Major Regime, and $975,188 for the advent of the "Mysterious Stranger." But it must not be forgotten that when Elli ott W. Major became Governor one of the first problems he faced was to again suppress outlawry in St. Louis and Kansas City. He found "lid clubs" running in full blast, day and night, with the full knowledge and consent of the police' and without either State, country or municipal li censes. Hand bookmen operated ev erywhere and gambling houses were as numerous as "lid clubs". These were some of the evils Governor Jo seph W. Folk put out of business while he was Governor, only to return with Republican rule. Governor Major renewed the war on "lid clubs", handbookmen and gam bling houses, the restoration of law and order Dilinar uo the State's shari of criminal costs during his reign of lour years. Criminal Costa, Folk and Dockery Administrations State criminal costs during the four ' years of Governor Folk's administra-1 tion totaled $1,002,903, or $27,715 more than was tne total lor the Had ley four years. During the period from 1905 to the close of 1908 the Sunday law and all other liquor reg ulating, statutes, including the one o'clock closing mandate, were resur rected and rigidly enforced; war was made on all swindling race tracks un til they shut down; gambling houses and handbook making resorts were closed, and the damper was tightly clamped also on other vices. This wholesale effective suppression of out lawry cost a heap of State funds, but Missouri profited through becoming I the leading law-abiding- commonwealth the country ovar, The Waliie of Your Tractor Is Based on the Service It Gives IF it works all the time it is worth all you pay for it You can keep it working all the time by using the right kind of lubricating oil.

This question is often asked of the Uni versity of Missouri College of Agri culture. Perhaps the best reply will be found in Extension Circular 66, by by W. C. Etheridge. He says: Sow timothy and bluegrass with wheat in the fall, adding clover the following spring. After two years of clover and timothy for hay, the land is pastured and tho blucgrass fills the sod as the timothy disappears. The acre rates of seeding should be about 8 to 10 pounds of timothy, 6 pounds of bluegrass, and 6 to 8 pounds of clover, using highgrade seed, it it should Be desired to turn unusually clean, fer tile land into pasture, a sod could be made somewhat more quickly by omit ting the wheat and sowing the grass es and clover without a nurse crop. In this case 10 to 15 pounds of blue grass seed would be sown to the acre. On land too dry and poor for blue grasses, a mixture of 5 pounds of red top, 10 pounds of orchard grass and 4 pounds of alsike clover is recom mended. If a cheaper mixture is wanted the redtop seed may be omit ted. , On all types of untillable land the spring seeding of pastures almost in variably gives better results than fall seeding, unless the soil is so weedy that fall seeding is necessary to give the erass an early start in competi tion with tho spring growth of weeds. No preparation of the sou is necessary, other than burning the leaves or other dead plant matter; but after the seed is sown it should by all means be har rowed or brushed into the soil, if the land is clear enough to allow the pas sage of the implement. It must bo un derstood, however, that a pasture seeded in the spring will yield but lit tle return the first season, unless the soil is very fertile and weather condi tions are favorable. If it is necessary to begin grazing by early summer, the grass should be seeded with rye or oats, which will furnish consider able pasturage during May and June. The quicker growing grasses, tim othy, rye grass, redtop and orchard grass, are seeded with bluegrass to furnish pasturage while the slow growing bluegrass is developing. It is also wise to provide against a pos sible failure of the bluegrass by in cluding other grasses which might prove themselves better adapted to the soil. Two to five years are re- 3uired for blucgrass to fill the sod, epending upon the fertility of the land and the persistence of the other grasses in the mixture. Under favor able natural conditions there seems to be no limit to its time endurance. But sometimes without any permanent jenange m tne natural conditions, the pasture becomes foul with weeds and I brush and is thereby made much less productive.
