Six A4joining School Districts
Provide for
Bath, Oct 6.- A new township high
school building for Batu township has
just been completed at this place at a
cost, of 110,500, all of which is provided
for without bonding tbe township for
a dollar.
Tbe question of building an op to
date school house for the twonship was
submitted at the aunual school election
last year and carried by a vote of 60
to 7.
The school beard had been raising
funds for tbat purpose by direct tax
ation for several years, and
there was $5,000 in sight for a build
ing. The contract was let at that time,
and at the annual meeting of the
school board in July a levy of $6,000
for the building was made, which will
pay the entire cost without the neces
sity of bonding. When tnis year's
taxes are collected all the bills will be
paid and tbe township will be free
from debt.
The experience of this township in
bonding for school houses years ago
was tbtit tne interest eventually
amounted to as much as the principal.
Bath township contains forty-two
sections of land, and has six school
buildings, two of which are not in use.
It is governed under the township
svstem. The new buildiug is for the
use of Ibe pupils in all the six sub
districts. Tbe assessed valuation of
the prjperty of the township last year
was JttO,5:tt. The tax levy for school
purposes last year was lt.( mills 011
the dollar, and this year it will be
about 20 mills, on a somewhat nigher
assessment. After that it will be very
much smaller, as tbe new school house
will be paid for and thete will be no
interest and sinking funds to raise on
account of bonds.
Tbe building is 32x56 with 12-foot
basement the entire size. The founda
tion is of Ortonville granite, and daik
red Ortonville pressed brick is used
above the water table. Below the
water table ate dark red paving brick.
Tbe trimmings are light colored stone.
Tbe four rooms have a seating capacity
of about 200.

sion, which will .ad in Decem

accomplished tows the enactment of
this lanr. At the last session of Con
gress a bill was carefully prepared
which met with the approval of the
Postmaster General, and wae reported
upon favorably by the Senate Commit
tee on Post Offices and Post Roads.
This bill is now on the Senate ealendar
and can be acted upon as soon aa Con
gress is convened.
The scope of the proposed law Is set
forth In the committee report, which Is
la part as follows:
CoamlttM Report,
The purpose of this bill is to place
at the disposal of people of small
means the machinery of tbe Posiofflcc
Department to aid and encourage them
to save their earnings. The subject of
postal savings banks or depositories is
not new in this country and it may be
truly said to be quite familiar to the
people of Europe and the British colon
lea The propriety of eetabllshing
postal savings banks became tbe sub
ject of discussion in England as early
aa 1807. Every objection to such use
of the poatofflce facilities orged in this
country was vigorously pressed in the
long-continued discussion of the subject
In England.
For over fifty years private savings
institutions waged bitter opposition to
the growing eentiment in favor of postal
aavings banka, but notwithstanding
such opposition in 1801 an act of Par
liament was passed entitled "An act
to grant additional facilities for de
positing small savings with the security
of tbe government for the due repay
ment thereof." That the alarm of pri
vate Institutions was
founded is
amply proven by the recorded fact that
the private savings banks Increased
their capital by more than ten millions
of dollars in the first fifteen years fol
lowing the establishment of postal sav
ings institution*
Tbat the postal aavings institutions
proved successful is satisfactorily at
tested by the fact that no backward
atep has ever been taken in England on
this subject and by the further fact
that in rapid succession the lead of
England was taken by other countries.
The primary purpose of these Insti
tutions Is to encourage thrift and a
saving disposition among the people of
small means by placing at their dls
poaal In every part of the country
ready facilities for the depositing of
small sums, with absolute assurance of
repayment on demand with a low rtfte
of interest oa a limited aggregate
Postal Saviagi Buki N««cd.
In certain parts of our country sav
ings institutions are sufficiently numer
ous to accommodate the people, but
such areas are quite limited, being con
fined to New England and New York.
It Is alleged that by reason of the nuut
ber and location of savings banks there
la one savings account to every two of
the population of New England, where
aa in all the country outside New En
gland and New York the average is
only one savings account to every 157
of the population. Taking such figures
to be approximately correct and recog
nising the fact that the people of all
sections of this country are pretty
much the same la habits, inclinations,
and purposes, It must be obvious to the
most casual ofeeerver that tbe people
of tbe South, the Middle West, and tho
West do not save their earnings as do
those of New England from the mere
want of secure places in which deposits
may be made.
To those who feel inclined to believe
that the establishment of postal sav
ings depositories will Involve an cY
ment of paternalism It seems quite sm.
flclent tp suggest that tbe machinery of
the Postoffice Department is now in ex
istence and will continue to exist with
out diminution of expense whether
such depositories are created or not
and that the establishment of these
depositories for the benefit of the
people will not involve one farthing of
loes to the Post-Offlce Department but
will probably, on the contrary, prove
snore than self-austalning. Yery slight
computation will clearly demonatrate
that the postal savings depositors can
hot burden the Post-Offlce Department
with any additional deficiency.
If I am elected President, I ehall
urge upon Congress, with every hope
of success, tbat a law be passed requit

German's Caustic Criticism of the
River of Romance.
Under the headline "The Rhine
Stream a Pain Stream" an iconoclast
of the name of Willibald Cramer
writes about tbe German river of ro
tnauce in the Berliner Tageblatt and
In the course of his article, which has
excited much displeasure in the Rhine
region, says:
"If there Is anything beyond my com
prehension it Is the enthusiasm of the
Uerman people for the Rhine A moro
tedious, desolated waterway it would
be difficult to And. The few ruins
maintained by the Society For the Pro
tection of the Beautiful Impress me as
little as does the dome at Cologne, in
the gambling lottery of which my fa
ther has invested money for the last
ten years without receiving any re
turns. And the so called vineyards,
these mounds erected as advertise
ments by the makers of wines, so that
their mixture of high wine, rainwater
and sugar may find a market under the
name of Liebfrauenmilch, have no
charm for me.
"There can be no doubt that fifty
years ago this whole territory was flat
as a tennis court. Everything oa the
Rhine Is fraud. The Mouse tow^r Is
probably the only place in tho whole
region which is not overrun by mice.
At all other points one is fairly eaten
up by this pest. And the weather! It
begins with a harmless fog, so thick
that those who play bllndman's buff
do not need a bandage over their eyes.
At noon the fog riees, and then comes

Chief Statistician of Census Bureau
Writes on "The Asaets of the

The nation's wealth Is not In the

Powers, Chief statistician of tbe census
bureau at Washington.
Writing on "The Assets of the United
States" In the September number

sued recently from the University ol

lowing to say of the concentration of
wealth In America:
"If we start with the value of farms

be owned ty men of small possessions,
the savings bank deposits and other
known possessions of those of moderate
means, and then add the lowest popular
estimates of the possessions of our
millionaires, we have an aggregate far
In excess of the census appraisal of
national wealth, and the conclusion
under such circumstances Is irresistible
either that the census estimates are
ridiculously small or the popular esti
mates of the wealth of our millionaires
are greatly exaggerated.
"The writer does not find any evi
dence that would Justify either the
statement that our national wealth Is
grossly understated or that our million
