Millions for defiance, but not one cent for restitution—that seems to be the slogan of the Lindbergh Kid napers. j The best way for the banks to aid the anti-hoarding campaign is to cease hoarding their idle funds. It id alright to tell the other fel low how and what to do; but would it not be more effective, clarified and convincing to practice what you preach and show him that it can be done? Many folks, you see, are from the State of Missouri. Those who pat themselves on the back are seldom patted there by others.

Quite a good deal of flue is re ported by physicians, though not of a violent type. A fool is that person who's caught more than once by quicksand. Wise men may come and wi.ie men may go, but nobody has yet discovered a workable substitute for discipline. they have over-looked the procession in their immediate locality and, consequently, have been caught in the economic traffic jam. It is alright to look ahead, but it avails 1 very little, if you do not look where.
