Do you know that over half of the fires that destroy so much valua ble property are started through a defective flue? Usually from the kitchen flue that is so often built of "Brick on Edge" only two inches thick! - You build big solid chimneys in the main part of your house and then jeopordize the building by putting one of those little brick on edge fire traps on the kitchen. Did you ever look to see how soon: the morter falls out and , leaves little chinks f or the fire to slip through? In 1908 the fire loss in America was TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-EIGHT MILLION D OLLARS ! This enormous waste was largely preventable. Slipshod methods of construction and criminal carelessness in the use of property bring about the terrible fire loss Build right and you gt a cheaper rate on your fire insurance.

Is the movement for a safe and ane fourth of July to be followed br one for an economical Christmas? Do the majority of people ' feel that the Christmas present has been as much orerdone as the firecracker, , the toy cannon and the pin wheel? It must be understood In the outset that the movement to curtail Christ mas giving has no relation to the chil dren. The joy of the little ones in their Santa Clans and his bounty is too beautiful a thing to disturb. It is only the presents to the grownups, to every Tom. Dick and Harry with whom one happens to be acquainted, the presents that are a burden and a bore, both to giver and recipient, that It is proposed to abandon. Frequently these are given through sense of duty and cannot be af forded by the donor. Just as frequent ly they are not needed by the one on whom they are bestowed. Thus the outlay is not justified. It Is a depriva tion to one without any corresponding benefit to the other. The recipient in turn feels it a duty to make presents to the giver, presents that perhaps he caa si' little afford and that his friend as little needs. Thus both have had to make;, sacrifices for which they hare received no equivalent good. It is this sort ; of giving when we. expect a re turn, this giving through a sense of past ' or' prospective obligation, against which there is -widespread revolt, jit is not in harmony with the Christmas spirit. It Is commercial, onerous and lacking in spontaneity. It makes us dread the return "of the holiday when Ve, should welcome it with Joy. ' Fortunately the habit is dying out Without .any preconcerted movement to that end it is still being dropped by mutual consent. A has reached the point of 'insurgency where he doesn't give a hang whether B remembers him or not. He will not rack his brain and deplete his pocket book buying un welcome things for B," only to cause B In turn to: hurl, perhaps grudgingly, equally unwelcome things at hisown head. All unknown to A the same In surgency has been working in the heart of B, and the irrational custom falls of Its own "weight. In conse quence the day on which we celebrate the birth of the Son of Man ceases to be a bargain counter exchange. With the children it is different We give to them for the pure joy of it without any hope of return. We enter Into4 their joys and partake of the Christmas spirit by sharing it with them. Thus we unconsciously fulfill the command of him in whose honor the day is celebrated and veritably be come as little children. ' J. A.
