GETTING UP EARLY To Holbrook people who are accustomed to rising be fore or with the sun, the early morning hour is the finest time of day. It has a rich quality that . no other hour owns. It is then that the new day is received fresh from the creator, clean, keen-cut and sparkling as a jewel. The early morning hour has a stillness, a freshness, a sweetness and a fragrance that are all its own. To know what beauty is one must be up before sunrise and wit ness the slow and stately approach of the day, the won derful shifting of colors in the east and the splendid sun itself as it emerges. At no time do birds sing so earnestly and hoyously as in the morning. We do not all react to the sights and sounds of nature alike, but it is a sad-hearted and a mighty morose citizen who can't feel some sort of inpira tion by watching the wonderful sight of a rising sun. We have reached the hot summer months when a fellow likes to get every minute of sleep that he feels is coming to him. And we don't blame him. But if you will in quire of the men who rise early you'll quickly find out that it is one good remedy for being able to sleep soundly. They go through the whole day feeling fit and fine, and when darkness comes sleep comes to them as natural as could have been intended. Don't take anyone's WQrd for it, but get in the habit of early rising yourself and see if it doesn't benefit you. Hard as it may be at first to accustom yourself to sacri ficing a whole hour sleep in the morning we honestly be lieve you will find it a paying investment. Just glancing at our healthy friends from the rural communities who have always been early risers, we're are quite sure you can do the same thing with profit. INDUSTRY AND BANKING Banking problems are largely industrial problems. It the community prospers, the banker prospers. To háve communitj7 prosperity, industrial activity is necessary to keep up a constant circulation cf money. To help stabilize business conditions, seme prcminent bankers are urging merchants and ethers er.gr.ged in business to adopt a plan of cash reserve, or .surplus to tide thenl over emergency situatiens and furnish protec tion against temporary trade dullness. Larger business firms have long followed this prac tice. A reserve of this kind would increase bank credit and be a valuable asset for industrial stability in any community. Ten for 10 cents.

PEOPLE OF OUR TOWN BREAKING THE TAXPAYER mi 1 1 i i ine papers are iun oi proposals oi now to raise money for government expense, both state and national, by various new forms of taxation. The whole thought seems to be more and more. Our taxes have been increas ing at a much more rapid rate than our wealth and popu lation. The more new methods of taxation that are invented, and the higher the tax burden is boosted, the less and less business eventually be done, for money is being driv en into tax-exempt securities, the funds from which are spent in governmental activity which requires the col lection of the taxes, and not in new and productive enterprise. We have seen this work with our excess profit and our surtax; the sources of wealth which formerly produc ed this tax revenue and drying up. It was all right to talk about taxing wealth and the big interests, but when you have taxing wealth and the big interests, but when you have taxed this capital out of existence, who carries the tax load that has been built up--the burden falls on millions of ordinary citizens who are still maintaing homes and business. Instead of studying new ways to increase revenue through new forms of taxation, it should be the aim of every honest public official to study methods of reducing the tax burden in proportion to the reduced cost of living and commoditv Drices and retrenchment m everv line of Nutmeg once a perfume. sVJ.
