Poetic genius draws, perhapsT the big

Poetic genius soar* aloft; |n search of

her down.... She finds some tawdry, ple

Americans are saving money as
never before, and prohibitionists
will find comfort and ammunition
in that.
Savings bankdepoaita increased
last year one billion one hundred
and forty million, a good deti of
money, and that*s only ? small part.
Other hundreds of millions were
invested in real estate, bonds,
stocks, etc. In the world's history
there a nothing like the way in
which the American people both
SPEND money and SAVE money.
Savings average thirty million
dollars /a day, about thirty cents
a- day for every man, woman and
child?not bad. .
Yet you have pessimists predict
ing hard times and sensible busi
ness men actually frightened by
their own talk about "a bad Presi
dential year."
We are indeed "fearfully and
wonderfully made," and well may
we praise the Lord. What horri
ble things MIGHT happen if our
glands ran wild, as in the case of
a little Russian boy four years old.
He wears a full beard and has such
abnormal power that he wrestles
successfully with grown men and
must be watched lest he strangle
bis playmates, having the brain of
a child and no realization of power.
Doctors say the unfortunate boy
has excessive development of vari
ous glands, especially the thyroid.
Marvelonsly we are balanced,
and we should be grateful. At the
Equator, temperature 140, or the
North Pole, 50 below zero, the
temperature of your blood remains
the same, not a change of one de
gree, while outside temperature
changes two hundred degrees.
And the earth, that fioating hot
house in which you live, sails
through frightfully cold ether per
manently at "absolute zero," cold
. inconceivable to us, and we are
protected from it '
Washington predicts that portal
employes will get an increase of
$800 a year, "all except laborers."
WHY except the laborers T , Their
children eat as much, wear ont as
many shoes as others. The Gov
?eminent can afford to pay its work
ers well, and should remember that
the child of a laborer may he the
moat important citizen or the fu
ture, ana, anyhow, should be well
. -fed. Kcata, the poet, worth ten
million average human beings wu

The Governor of Connecticut,
past fifty, "will enter Yale Univer
sity, to specialise in Watery and
psychology when his torn ends,
and that in normal. At fifty, men
really want knowledge and value
it. In early youth they crave ex
ercise and excitement.
In childhood we lock them up in
schools, forcing knowledge into
them fay a pumping process, when
they ought to be oot of doors. And
when they are old we turn them
out into the golf fields and let them
make geese of themselves, when
they really ought to be studying.
The Labor Government of Eng
land has abolished all duties on'
automobiles, motor cycles, moving
picture films and watches?and
that, in spite of Great Britain's
terrific war debt.
This highly intellectual Ameri
can Republic is planning a tax on
radio sets, which is about as intel
ligent as it would be to tax school
books or new ideas. To allow
twenty billion dollars' worth of se
curities to go untaxed and put a
tax on horgan ingenuity is foolish,
to put it-mildly.
Mason J. Aldrich bought a Bible
at auction for twenty-five cents,
and found nr it two bills, one for
$100, the other for $2." A wonder
ful bargain, newspapers call it But
there are better things than $102
to be found in any Bible. There is
salvation, most important, and if
you are more interested in money
than salvation, as some are, you
[can even make money by reading
the Bible.
Isaiah, Job, the Pialms stimu
late the mind, make the brain work.
A stimulated mind succeeds,
whether in making money, or
avoiding sin.
"To lend dignity to their bobbed
heads," English women wear fil
lets of green and gold, or little
spikes, in Goddess of Liberty fash
ion. The real dignity of a bobbed
head, is a.well shaped skull. Noth
ing is more dignified than the sym
metrical head of an intelligent
woman, bobbed or not Eventually
aU woman will est their hair in
such fashion as to show the whole
forehead, the ears and the shape
of the back bead. But i> wDI V\f;e
