THE CONVERSATIONALIST
The famous Ben Johnson was
Cfrice introduced by his host to a
guest and for half an hour the
fwo men were together. When
Johnson went away he remarked
to his host: "What a delightful
Conversationalist is Mr. Blank."
&ater during the evening it de
veloped that Mr. Blank's part
in this "delightful" conversation
had been to ask only two ques
tions: "What day was that?"
and "What time was it?" Yet
Ben had gone away with the
Impression that he had been in
troduced to a "delightful,wayer
,}fiitionalist**
Recently Dir. Frank Chine
came out with some thirty re
quisites of a really good conver
sationalist, and while the distin
guished author did not demand
that the ideal conversationalist
thouid be as mute as was Mr.
Blank, yet he did lay stress upon
the fact that the art does not lie
111 "making all the talk."
It is a fact that a good listener

and we in Philip are not im
mune. The man who comes in
with the great "I" imprinted all
over him,and has no use or time
for "you," what a bore is he.
How people turn down a side
street to escape him. Selfishness
is at the bottom of all this. That
man is an egotist he is concern
ed in himself and himself only.
Tfye real, the true conversation
alist is a gentleman and is inter
ested in what the other fellow
has to say.
GERMAN BONIS
IN DEMAND
The American demand for
German internal bonds is now
running at the rate of approxi
mately $1,000,000 a day, accord
ing to a partner in one of the big
international banking houses
whics has been accepting orders
for these securities. At current
rates of exchange, this means
that German marks totaling
somewhere between 60,000,000
and 70,000,000 a day are being
purchased by Americans who
desire either to speculate in the
bonds or to hold them for invest
ment. In addition, it is said that
importations of German goods
are now considerably in excess
of what they were a month or
so ago, and this, too, is creating
a huge demand for marks.
If you are picking the next
president and backing him, our
advice would be like Mr. Punch's
to those about to marry 'Itont,"
It's a long shot yet.

JOHN MARTSFELD
DROWNED
Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Martsfeld,
of Ottumwa, have received word
of the death of their son, John,
in a tragic accident which oc
curred recently near* Akron,
Iowa. The Akron Register Trib
une has the following to say of
the death of this young man:
John Martsfeld was drowned
in Brule creek, a few miles west
of Akron, at about 10 o'clock
this (Thursday) forenoon. With
him in a lumber wagon drawn by
four horses, was Del. Harkness
and they were driving to the
Amundson farm, six and a half
miles southwest of here, which
Mr. Martsfeld had rented for
the coming year. As they drove
upon the steel bridge over Brule
creek, it suddenly collapsed and
both men. wagon and teams
were thrown into the stream.
Struggling in the swift and icy
water, Martsfeld and Harkness
held onto one another for a few
moments, but finally Martsfeld
let go his hold, and impeded by
a heavy coat, was carried down
stream and disappeared from
view. Harkness, by desperate
efforts, managed to reach the
bank and, safety. His team and
one of Martsfeld's horses were
drowned. George Farrin who
harf been working for Mr.Marts
feld, was driving a short dis
tance behind them in another
rig, but did not get onto the
bridge. Searchers working un
til dark did not locate the miss
ing man.

RESENT CHARGE
The statement contained in
President Wilson's recent letter
to Senator Hitchcock regarding
league reservations, to the ef
fect that the present French
government is militaristic is,
according to Paris dispatches,
deeply resented by the French
people.
The French press, however,
while intimating that the Pres
ident's criticism will make it
more difficult for his opinions
to continue to have an important
effect upon the shaping of the
international policies of France,
gives assurance of the fact that
the incident will not be permitted
to disturb the traditional friend
ship between the people of
France and America.
French criticisms of the
President's statement are to the
effect that it constitutes an un
warranted interference with the
internal affairs of another na
tion and further that it is inac
curate, it being argued that,
though France may have assum
ed a firmer attitude towards
Germany, that attitude is not
due to a fondness for militarism
but is merely a necessary meas
ure for the protection of France
in the absence of protection ex-,
pected through the ratification
by the United States of the
league of nations plan and the
proposed Anglo- American
French military alliance.

THE DRIFT CITYWARD
The new census seems to show
in an even greater degree than
previous ones that the drift of
population is toward the large
centers, rather than toward the
small communities and the
farms.
Fifty years ago we were an
agricultural country, more than
half the people living either on
farms or in the small towns. To
day merely sixty per cent live
in the large cities leaving but
forty per cent for rural popula
tion. The reasons for this are
many, yet probably much lies in
the effects of education in our
schools. Who does not remem
ber that the hero of most of the
stories we read in our school
books was a boy, born on a
farm, who went to the city and
made a success AH the
thoughts of the young were
pointed cityward, and now we
are reaping the natural fruits.
It is time to set out the bene
fits of the country as a place of
residence the greater freedom,
the pleasanter surroundings,
the pure air, the eommunion
with nature, the fresh fruits
and vegetables—and other ad
vantages too numerous to re
count in one article.
The young man or woman
who keeps close to Mother Na
ture is going to get more out of
life than his city cousin.
MEETING OLD H. C. L.
The great cause of the H. C.
L. is shortage of goods. We may
argue as we will, but in the end
it comes to simple working of
the law of supply and demand.
The only cure is increased pro
duction. When there is a short
