APROPOS OF ANY SMALL TOWN In “Life” magazine of January 19, the following article appears under the heading, “Beware of Praise!” “Praise is essential to young peo ple, provided It is tempered with wis dom. And yet the danger of it! When praise passes the nice point of en couragement, it weakens. “When others praise you, ask your self what it is they want in return. When you praise others, it is either because you fear them or expect something from them. There is, how ever, a philanthropic praise, handed out by mentally opulent people to their inferiors as a form of restitu tion. It is as if they said, ‘I have plenty; I can afford to praise this chap without hope of reward.’ “Praise is dangerous because it is almost invariably inaccurate; it is what one man tells another in order to conceal his real opinion.” ♦r t 1111 r 11111 t 1111 rir r r .nr itr tll mi! rrTnrrnni ir i I What They’re Doing In The World Outside ..Approving a thing "in principle” seems to mean that it looks all right but you don’t quite like it. • • • • A moratorium is what results wh»n an implacable creditor meets an un payable debt. • • • • “Some families,” said Uncle Eben, “ would be a whole lot happier if they didn’t keep tryin’ to put too much jazz in ‘Home Sweet Home.* • • • • Frost in California injured the lem on crop to the extent of 20 per cent in certain sections. Fruit dealers thereupon advanced the price 125 per cent.

The Half Moon was for merly the Germania, private yacht of former Emperor William of Germany. Perhaps some of his Ex-Majesty’s pri vate stock had been left in the cellar of the boat. • • • • • A new and militant organization. “The United Farmers National Bloc” was organized at Chicago, with the announced purpose of putting the right men into office. Candidates will be scrutinized and if they are agriculturally O. K. they will be sup ported. One of the organizers claim that during the last three years farmers have lost $20,000,000:000 through the deflation of prices, high freight rates and the foreclosing of mortgages. They propose to remedy this condi tion. Their platform calls for the operation of railroads for public serv ice instead of private profit, govern ment guarantees of cost of produc tion, of staple farm products and tax ing of excess profits to pay the war debt • • • • With blue law officials taking the sun out of Sunday, and police, sher iffs, constabulary and federal agents taking the moon out of the other six days, about all the average citizen sees are stars. __ • • • • Uncle Joe Cannon will retire from congress at the close of this term.

S. senate in dicates that the people of the United States spent between $750,000,000 and $1,000,000,000,000 annually to see moving picture shows. • • • • It would be\ a fine thing to follow Mr. Brisbane’s advice and not tax anybody to pay the soldier bonus. Why not just simply print the curren cy and pay the soldiers with perfect -1 good money manufactured by the government at the cost of paper and printing without taxing anyone or disturbing business. Come on Mr. Harding, you said you were willing if the money could be found. Why not help the soldiers and business both, even if the bond holder does object? GEORGE, 70, PUTS ED. 64, IN HOSPITAL George Monroe, 70, licked his chum, Edward Sherwood, 64, in Detroit last week. Before Edward was taken to the hospital he cried and told George he ought to lick because he was older than he was. They roomed together and were so friendly that they used the same shaving brush, ,and this condition might have gone on forever had not George taken to boasting of his prowess. Wearied, finally, of hearing his room-mate brag, Edward took him on for a battle, and learned when it was too late that his boasts were well founded. Monroe whipped over wjth a left cross on Ed’s Jaw. and after that the rest was easy. He shortly had him groggy but not before they had wrecked the furniture and damaged each other considerably. Sherwood went to the hospital and Monros went to jail awaiting the re sult of the former’s injuries.

The New York Board of Aidermen has adopted a resolution calling upon Congress to amend the Volstead act so as to permit the sale of beer and light vines. • • • • The world is full of parasites that live by the work of others. There are men whose wives support them, and children who live on their parents long after they are old enough to sup port themselves. The church also has her parasites, people who are al ways getting, but never giving. They are fond of the apples of paradise, but some one else must cultivate them. • • • • The “Superphone,” an apparently simple attachment for telephones that is said to assure absloute secrecy of communication and security from in terruptions and makes possible mul tiplex telephony, was demonstrated recently in the office of the signal of ficer of the army. __lt was shown thatone telephone line to which “superphones” were attach ed could be used for a number of con versations simultaneously, and that no pair of speakers could hear or In terrupt another pair. We recommend this instrument to lovers and to our neighbor’s wives. It would cure the "line busy” habit and the “listening in." But we re fuse to purchase one. We want our wife to have time to get the meals.
