'- It MMi ti have become the policy of baaks to advance their discount rata commensurate ly with tat advances mad In the reditcoaat rates of the federal reserve butka - Some ol then seem not to have been content to limit their advances to the advances mad by the federal reserve banks, but to have made the action of the federal reserve banks a pretext to widen the. previously existing difference be tween the discount and tbe rediscount Mas. We use .the word pretext for the season that the action of a federal reserve hank in Increas ing its rediscount rates does not necessarily warrant member banks' In making any in crease, whatever.. The idea that It does, which ids seems to govern the policy of member banks, betrays s most surprising misconcep tion of the purposes and functions of the fed eral reserve system. ---- It was not the purpose in creating the fed eral - reserve system to enable the member banks to make a profit out of their rediscount operations. Nor was it the purpose even to enlarge their opportunities for increasing their earnings in any way. The salient purpose was to create and maintain a reservoir of credit for use in time ' of stress; "Whenever rediscount rates are advanced, therefore, it is done chiefly to husband the resources of the federal re serve banks. Under normal conditions, the rateg.of a central bank, in countries which have leng had them, are higher than the open mar ket rates, so that banks which rediscount lose instead of gain by, the operation; and prop erly so, since the effect: is to restrict (he use of credit, which is the purpose of the central bank in advancing its rediscount rates. " It is cbvious that if member' banks are to make a profit on, their rediscount operations they will be undeno inducement to contract the, volume cf credit, and hencethe purpose of the federal reserve bank, in advancing its rediscount rates will be somewhat balked, if not defeated. That there is a species of prdfiteering in ad vancing discount .rates on no other warrant than-the' fact that the federal reserve banks have advanced their rediscount rates will be-, come apparent on a moment's reflection. For it is but a small per centage about ,12 per cent, we believe of the loans made by mem ber banks are rediscounted at the" federal re serve banks. In other words, about 88 per cent of their loans are made from their own funds, so that when they advance their dis count rates commensurately with an advance made in the rediscount rates of the federal reserve banks they are merely increasing their profits on nearly 90 per cent of the loans they make at the advanced rates. Thus what they in. reality do is to put a "replacement value" on their funds, but without, however, always replacing, them; so that have even less excuse than the dealers in sugar for adopting that thrifty rule of pricing. If the member banks had all of their loanable funds outstanding, or even any very large percentage of them, it might be both just and expedient to make addi tional loans at the rates of the federal reserve banks, or even at rates higher than those of the federal reserve banks. But when they make their rates advance with those of the federal reserve banks without being under tbe neces sity of rediscountlng the loans made at those advanced rates, it is evident' that they are merely exploiting an opportunity which arises from an unhealthful condition of finance and industry. There is the less excuse for doing 1 this in the fact that tbe federal reserve act has freed for use a great deal of the money which the old law required them to keep in their vaults.! Since a greater percentage of their funds is thus made available for lending, they can make their rates lower and still make their discount operations as profitable as they were before the institution of the federal re serve system. r v The action of the banks throughout the country in advancing their discount rates has engendered no little dissatisfaction, and that dissatisfaction vents itself in complaints against the federal reserve banks. ' That this is an injustice to those institutions is made clear by Lwhat haa been said. - MSftC LHC9 MANS ANCIENT CfSCMV, DULkCAMC WHO DtSNTCM TMC uwLOveo cus, V j WHAT THE WHAT DO Wl CAXEk m i McOrav. dean of Moody Btbls Insti tute, says Satan is tbe "control" of all spirit ualist mediums).

A boy is a boy until he is old enough to vote. Tobacco undoubtedly does grown men a great deal of harm, impairs ftfteir mental and physical efficiency, shortens life, predisposes to sen oas arterial, heart and kidney dis eases, sometimes proances alarm ing optic nerve degeneration or partial blindness, - apparently (no one can say - positively), excites many eases of lip, tongue and throat cancer. : Yet I do not oeneve mat a very moderate use of tobacco by crown men la always narmiui u i thought so I would never use it There are many things wnicn a grown man may properly do, but which an immature youth may not and should not do.

The young man betray ed deplorable ignorance and misin formation, but the self confidence and cheek with which he exhibited his conception of life, was charac- eristic of a defective mind.

Since my high school days I have gone with and cared for only one young man. He has liked me,' too, and came to see me often. . He has also gone with others, however. After graduating from high school I attended commercial school, whtre I met a girl who has been my closest friend since that time. ' We both work now and have our lunches together every noon. My young ' man friend went to France as a soldier and only re cently returned." r My girl friend had never met him until lately be cause she did not grow up in this town, but came here to attend school. ' Naturally I wanted to have my two dearest friends meet and eo I arranged to have them at my home for dinner. My girl friend is very pretty and has all the attention from men her heart could desire. I never dreamed that she would take more than a friendly interest in the young man for whom I care so much...- '. One meeting was enough. The two have been going together ever since, which is two months now, and my young friend has not been to see me since the night he was at my home for dinner. I try not to show it, but life is almost un bearable for me now. I really do not blame the girl friend for what she did. She is just pretty and Ir resistible. The thing that breaks my heart is to hear about the good times they are having. Noon after noon she talks of nothing else. The last time she suggested that they were as much as engaged. How can I overcome this hate ful feeling , of jealousy? I don't want to be utterly small and mean. ;. RUTH. The following -crse seems to me to be comforting. Perhaps you are fatalist enough to accept the philos ophy too: "Serene, I fold-my hands and wait. Nor care for N wind, or tide, or sea;. , '; -.- .- ,? I j-ave no more 'gainst time or fate. For lo! my own. shall come to ''.': me. s ;a . The stars come nightly to the skyj ''The tidal wave unto the sea; Nor time, nor space, nor deep, -nor high, - Can keep' my own from me." I believe that you will gain peace of mind ifyou let things take their natural course. Time removes the sting Of suffering. You have lost wnai. seems aear to you now so that something else can enter your life. Trust that greater happiness is. ahead of you. Washington, D. C, June 23. Al though yon may Sever have sus pected the fact, you are a finished ; and perfect product of evolution. The next time you have a cold or a bunion or a toothache, or your mechanism Is otherwise on the blink, comfort yourself, if you can, with the reflection that you are nature's masterpiece. All of which is a way or saying that, according to J. W. Gidley, paleontologist of the National mu seum. man's anatomy has reached a stage where it will probably never change any more or at least not for about a million years. Neither in body nor in mind has man made any real progress in that time. It is only his culture the accumulated result of all the ef forts of many generations which really changes, and which makes man aooear to change. Tbe popu lar idea that man is evolving is all wrong. Biologically speaking, hu man progress ended a million years ago. - - According to theories or evolu tion, it a cat eats nothing but grass. Its teeth will in time De moainea in shape so that they are efficient for nibbling, but they will proDa bly not be much good for tearing flesh. In the same way, a bird that does not use its wings will in a few geologic ages lose all power of flight But this principle holds good oniyso far. When an animal has become specialized and adapt ed to his environment as far as his structure will permit without en dangering the balance necessary to existence, he usually stops chang ing, and finally, it is supposed. loses power of development There is a difference of opinion as to whether man has reached the point where he is best adapted to his surroundings, or whether he will continue to evolute. Mr. Gid ley says that man's present me chanical . arrangement is perma nent He refutes the suggestion that man's jawbone will shrink and his teeth drop out because he eats more soft foods .and does not chew so vigorously as his cave-man an cestors. Man knows enough' about chemistry to understand what kind of foods are necessary to insure health, and there is little prospect of his jaw disappearing on a bal anced ration. Our Toes Are Safe, Nor does Mr. Gidley think we need worry -over the prophecy that our descendants' heads will be all brain hot by present indications. We have been further warned by some men of science that our toes, all except the big one, are already useless from lack of exercise, and that eventually they will grow shorter and disappear altogether, like the horse s long discarded -toes. This fear, too, Mr. Gidley regards as eroundless, for while tne mus cles of the shorter digits, are not particularly flexible in modern shoes, yet we do use them in bal ancing. Statues of the old Greek eods and athletes show that they poised themselves on the inside of the foot a method which gave both the appearance and feeling of light ness. Had the Greek ideal per sisted, the outer toes of man might by now be almost atrophied, prob ably to the improvement of human posture. If such a change were taking place, and a few scientists insist that it is, we would not be aware of it, so slowly does nature pro gress. For instance, it took the horse a few million years to grow hoofs which he needed for speed. As the horse was not built for flchtlnK. he is not always poised on the tips of his four-toed feet ready to escape when an armored dino saur or a megatherium came lum bering on him. If you go into al most any big museum you can see the bones of the horse s foot at dif ferent staves of his development. Geologists have unearthed the bones of horses that lived 4,000,000 years ago. These horses were about the size of a dog and had four toes. Before that it is believ ed that there must have been five. Three million ' years later, there were only three,' and the middle diKit had bv that time become large and resembled a hoof, , while the bones of the toes .on each side had shortened until they did not reach the ground. Man a Weak Animal. ' Because he specialized in speed, the horse can now run as fast as 32 miles an hour, while man at his swiftest can make only about twen ty.

The okhit clues to ancient man so far 4W covered are part of a skull, a UUk bone, and two teeth. These found in Java, and judging by th stratum of soil in which they tn lying, geologists decided that the man lived 500,000 years ago. Pith, canthropus, as the scientists allid the antique Javanese, was a adu developed man, thesgh with relatr ape-use ieaiures. ,; The Javanese man of a half no. lion years ago is a mere note compared with some of the aatmali whose skeletons have been dug at and classified. Six million yan ago, in the age of reptiles, flouriak.' ed tbe armored dinosaur, which tav most people is the symbol of pre historic times. But even , the dine, saur is young as the age of tha world goes. Dr. Walcott of ; thtj Smithsonian Institution estimates that animal life started ontheawtlt 41440.000 years ago. Some that between then and the very recent Javanese gentleman man got kit start - V f Fatter Pithecanthropus. Science is 'still looking for the ancestors of - Pithecanthropus, bat it is not looking for a missing Jink between man and the .modern avnw key, because anthropologists do not think man is descended from apo Darwin is often misquoted on this point. What Darwin said was thtt man and apes evolved from a con mon ancestor. - Some scientists holt that there were probably a number of early animals which braachat off from the unknown ape-like cestor and that any one of theav might have developed into a perior being, but that somehow aH; except man failed to make the most: of themselves, or became the speck alized beings of the jungle. -' Mr. Gidley explains that in th far-off times man was not the. husky giant we imagine, bat t smaller creature; that he lived by trees, and used his hands to cling; by, and his voice for vague ehit terings. Then for some pnknowfc reason, possibly because the for ests disappeared through - mm, change of climate, this prehlstertt' , man came down from his trees.
