is getting to be a common thing to

many people fail to think of the com

poverty and suffering which cannot
be helped or provided against, but
there are but few men, who looking
back over their lives, cannot see
where they could have laid something
by for the encergencles, such as arise
in the lives of nearly all people at
some stage in their Uvea. Another
point was also illustrated by the
good people at Echo. There is no
case so severe, or so friendless that
the Western people will not come to

he generally boasts of shrewdness.
There is a widespread belief among
us that we are the "smartest people"
on eaith. If the officials of tic X n icd
States postofflce aro to be believed,
we are as a people far trom being
level-headed on a trade. On the con

In a recent review of the subject in
the Philadelphia Times, one of the
postofflce authorities is quoted as
saying: "Notwithstanding the fact
that we are generally credited with

am often tempted to believe that

The most successful of all frauds
are schemes for stock speculation.
The postoftlce department receives a
continual stream of letters from per
sons who have been swindled by self
styled "Investment ngents." It has
been found impossible to suppress
frauds of that kind, no matter how
often they are broken up and tempor
arily interrupted. In explanation of
the difficulty, the writer says: "The
