You wonder sometimes where they come from, :these

come from a big. city. This pair came from rural communi

not in excess of fifty million, or
less than two per cent of our

this fifty million dollars which is
all the money we have In circula

To begin with let ma say that
. th world is a changed place
" ,' - i- ' - ..-- r-
from what It was whenever the
monetary system was established.
Our demands were- modest. We
are now living in a highly moder
nised ago- wherein business and
government hare become mora
or less complicated. Our trans
portation system has become rev
olutionised; our mode of. doing
business has also been revolu
tionised. The only , thing that
has not progressed has been our
money system. In the beginning
money was Invented to be used
merely aa a medium of exchange
and waa mora or less in proper
tion to our wealth and our de
mands. . in i the early periods
money had te perform the errand
only et unnla- to the grocery
atort for. food and the clothing
atere for clothing. ; It is .much
different now. - This money must
not only perform, the errand of
food and clothing but It must

dreamed of la- years gone by; A

for the entire period, whereas
the ordinary loan at S per cent
would cost 1400, leaving a net
gain to the, borrower of $380,
and If this were compounded it
would exceed $380.
The enactment of this law
wouia tnererore eliminate any
mortgage that it would come In
contact with within the period of
ten years.
:. Something of this kind wUl
have to be done sooner or later
whether by the federal govern
ment or by the states. An edi
torial . in the Journal known as
."The Business Week"of Febru
ary It, 1931, published by the
MeGraw-Hill Publishing company
Contains the following:
' . ... But here again, as la
the case of public support ot the
unemployed, the sound objec
tions to the gorernment's going
into the 'banking business are
likely to "be greatly weakened in
public opinion if private financial
institutions are not able or will
ing to proride needed monetary
facilities to all solvent borrowers
at a price they are able to pay.
"It seems to be Inescapable
that whero private business does
not do something that is neces
sary, government will sooner or
later be forced to do it whether
we like it or not. We don't like
it. and we wish business didn't
like a a little harder, too."
V Ton wiU see by this that some
thing of this kind is being given
serious coaslderatloa by the lead
ing thinkers of the country and
this Mil, although I am willing
to grant you, sounds moreof less
foolish and ridiculous,1 yet it is
no more so than would hare been
the statement some few . years
ago . that we some day would be
able to -hear a " human voice

plane would make a non-stop

Dear Sir: v
I have read so much of the
water difficulty In Salem that I
would like to say word,
i -I think I have drilled mere
wells In the city t Salem than
any man now livlnf.
I feel sure - there la an abun
dance of water under Salem to
supply the city tor all time to
come; much bettor water than
any ever bad or which may bo
obtained from , either the Wil

o much .less cost to the city.

Only if that was the case, how
would she hare 'found a chance
to come into thia shut-op base
ment and destroy the dress and
to get on the roof and aide the
slippers? Unless she's very. Tory
clever. Cleverer than any ser
vant I've ever heard Of."
"Well, if she onlj borrowed the

afterward for?" Walter demand
