Koiv to llcnj the Flaa
Now that the Stars and Stripes float
from hundreds of residences and the
patriotic citizens are making a dis-
?lay every day of the flag which
ormerly was floated to the ' breeze
only on national holidays and special
events many persons are asking for
information regarding the correct
way to hang the flag, particularly
when it is used as a banner and de
tached from the staff.
The right way to hang the flag as
a banner, according to Mrs. L. Victor
Seydel, who has consulted the best
authorities in response to many in
quiries received, is this:
"When the flag is used as a banner
the union (stars) should fly to the
north in streets running east , and
west or to the east in streets run
ning north and south."
An inverted flajr when hung from
the staff as a banner, is a distress
signal and always interpreted such in
the army and navy, therefore unless
the correct position is known one may
unconsciously be flying a distress sig
nal. The flag hung as a banner sus
pended between trees on the lawns af
fords an effective decoration as well
as a patriotic symbol. Press.
It is a trite saying that thrift nec
essitates self-denial and that the pos
session of a savings account imposes
the obligation to surrender many
things that are desired. But the pos
session of a savings account is mere
ly one form in which thrift expresses
itself. Thrift means preparedness. It
means'adherence to orderly processes
of thought and action. It means calm
calculation of the relation of income
to outgo and the discernment of the
necessity and the advantages in every
penny that is spent.
The thrifty man or woman does not
buy what is not needed. He takes ac
count of the future. He measures the
uncertainities of human existence. He
realizes that sickness and unemploy
ment are among the inevitable ac
companiments of existence. He makes
provision against the day of want and
looks forward to the condition in
which those who are dependent on
him will be when he dies.
. The thrifty man also takes account
of the larger matter of citizenship
and his relation to society. He is in
a position to insist on the economical
conduct of the affairs of government
if he conducts his own affairs in an
economical way. He has a sense of
responsibility as a contributor to in
dustrial progress that makes him a
better citizen and if, in the end, he
prefers to use the savings bank as a
convenient place in which to accumu
late funds and then to invest them as
his own judgment directs, he becomes
aven more a participant in the indus
trial advance o fthe nation and as
sumes directly the control of the cap
ital he produces.
Superficially it may not seem a cor
rect conclusion to assert that thrift
finds its first demonstration in the
possession of a savings account, but
it does. Such a possession is the first
step toward the goal of real achieve
ment and it leads to independence and
a belief in the ability to conduct one's
own affairs.
"One of the worst things to fatten
on is envy. Jn our opinion, it is as
difficult for a grudging man to raise
a double chin as it is for a bankrupt
to raise a loan. Plumpness comes
not from roast beef but from a good
heart and a cheerful disposition."
After Six Years
Belding Testimony Remain Unshaken
Time is the best test of truth.
Here is a Belding story that has
stood the test of time. It is a story
with a point which will come straight
home to many of us.
M. Y. Gephart, proprietor of con
fectionery store 416 South Broas
St., Belding, says: "Some years ago
I suffered from sharp, cutting pains
in my back and loins. It was as hard
for me to stoop or lift. I finally us
ed Doan's Kidney Pills and in a short
time, they rid me of the ailments."
(Statement given November 7, 1906.)
ER, Mr. Gephart said: "My former
recommendation of Doan's Kidney
Pills still holds good. They are the
best of kidney medicines."
Price 50c, at all dealers. Don't
simply ask for a kidney remedy get
Doan's Kidney Tills the same, that
Mr. Gephart has twice publicly re
commended. Foster-Milburn Co.
