Millions Lost Annually in Wear

The following interesting item
about loss of gold in the wear of
jewelry is sent out from Chicago:
Gold, used in jewelry of an esti
mated value of $4,620,000 is lost
through attrition in the United
States annually. What becomes
of it no one knows. It disappears
—that's all. Here are some inter
esting figures on the yearly shrink
"While many persons possess
no gold jewelry," said a jeweler,
"many 1 more possess several
pieces. I think it is safe-to esti
mate there is one piece of gold
jewelry owned in the United States
for every individual. This would
make 105,000,000 pieces. This
gold jewelry is always becoming
Constant handling, the
rubbing of two rings against one
auothec, the friction of the links
of a necklace or watch chain—all
these things gradually wear away
the bold. The lost gold is In in
visible particles. Only delicate
Bcales dan determine that it has
"The average pride of the gold
in jewelry might be estimated at
2 1-5 cents.a grain.* I am aureit
is not placing the estimate too
high to say that the annual loss is
two grains to each piece of jew
elry, or 210,000,000 grains for the
estimated 105,000,000 pieces? This
at 21-5 cents a grain means a
total of 14,620,000 as the nation's
annual jewelry loss in gold
through attrition." *

There is still much being Baid
about women voting, and, women,
if you will get your Bible and
read 1 Tim. 2:12, you will see that
the Bible forbids women taking
authority over men, which will be
the case if Women get the ballot,.
Woman's place is in the home. It
is there they can do the duties
God has given them. Let the
men run the government and the
women the home.
If the men cannot run the gov
ernment, I am sure women can
not. What is the use of women,
voting anyway? They will vote
just as their husbands do. What
the world needs now more than ,
ever before is good mothers to
train their children in the right
It has been said that the hand
that rocks the cradle rules the
world, and this is true. If mothers
will train their' children to be
honest men and women, they will
have accomplished more than they
can by voting. A good woman's
influence is worth more than her
vote. Women are getting oat of
their place when they get in poli
tics; men will not have the same
respect for women if they vote
and electioneer like men. No
good woman should ever .want to
vote and I hope tbe good women
ot our country will never lower
the standard of womanhood by
pushing themselves into positions
where men will lose respect for
