There Is a baby walking.
Along a city street.
It has its little hand in mine,
I BUM. its dancing feet.
And as beneath the row of trees
We wander side by side.
Keeping an even pace with us.
The friendly moon doth glide.
Wo go a whole long city block, .
And back to our' front door.
And baby laughs to see the moon
Just where it was before.

THE PEOPLE HAVE MONEY
JWNANCIERS and experts in financial matters in large bank
ing cities of the country are commenting on the favorable
financial conditions in the United States after the coun
try's two-year participation in the greatest war in history. Not
only has the federal reserve system met every demand for elas
ticity and safe expansion, but the close scrutiny of federal offi
cials has added to the security and stability of the entire banking
interest. During the past fiscal year there were more than 18,
000,000 depositors in our national banks, and, according to a re
port of the Comptroller of the Currency, not a penny was lost to
a depositor through the failure of a national bank throughout
the entire 12 months.
lhe 18,240,800 depositors (by actual count on June 30,
1919) had placed a total of $15,824,865,000 in the keeping of
federal banks. In these banks there had been but one failure
since January 1, 1918 only one failure, in fact, in the last
twenty-one months. Their deposits represented an increase of
119 per cent, or $8,767,828,253, since the same date in 1910.
This was a gain of practically a billion dollars a year
the same period the number of depositors entrusting their mon
ey to the federal banks rose 137 per cent; or from 7,690,468
separate accounts to the total of over 18,000,000. This was an
increase of 10,549,832 depositors.
While there are a great many depositors who have duplicate
accounts, the figures obtained from the comptroller's report
show the great expansion of wealth was among the masses of
the people during the past nine years. As further evidence of
how general this expansion actually has been, the figur.es on to
tal deposits divided among the number of depositors show that
while in 1910 the amount cn deposit for each depositor averaged
$689.47, the report for June of this year puts the average deposit
at $651.92, or very close to the figure of nine years ago, indicat
ing a broader distribution of wealth.

Friday, Auff. 9, 1918. We were told

gun. I looked up in a questioning j
way. A Frenchman nearby was do
ing the same and he said, "Bertha
goes again." The papers today an-,
nounce that the big German gun was
beginning to shell Paris again. I visit
ed the place, not far away, where one j
shell had gone down through the hotel ;
Calais. It had entered about the j
fourth story window and gone angling 1
at about 75 degrees down through the
building ripping a hole about the size
of an automobile before its explosion. ,
Tt seems to have exploded In or under
the dining room. Then its capers
were lige a regular "oull in a China
closet" French china was sure in a
muss, but only two people were killed
by all the shells dropped at this time.
Paris hardly notices the incident, so It
seems to me. At noon I came upon
1 Fred Lockley of Portland, Oregon. He
1 didn't know me at first till I told him
j I hailed from the biggest town of Its
size in the worlds where we "Let er

Jj to beat the band, then he smiled and
shook my hand. "Glad to see you
here Cornelison." it was then he set
going a plan to get me to go into the
British Sector of the western front
where I. B. Rhodes, formerly a "Y"
, seoretry in Idaho and Oregon, had
j charge. I knew Rhodes, but never
j git to see him. But Lockley must
have gotten results for when the re
i port was read after the conferences
j today, i am with others assigned to
Mr. Rhodes' section anil am to report
at Abbyvillo for further orders.

that he did not aim to kill the lad and that death resulted from
neglect of the wound. The judge ruled that this evidence could
not be considered.
If a farmer is entitled to seven years in the penitentiary for
defending his melon patch with excessive zeal, what about the
bandits and deliberate murderers and revolution by force advo
cates, many of whom are not being punished at all? The pun

The tremendous demand for Torbensen Drive R.

1 This insistent demand has made Torbensen Drive
the most widely used make of motor truck rear axle

design and good service.
I What are the features of design that have made
this rear axle the undisptued leader? For, in the last
analysis, it is the design that determines the type of
service that any rear axle can give.
There are two outstanding features. The first

With a hard winter at hand the coal strike was becoming a
tragic matter and President Wilson has made a timely rescue by
submitting an acceptable plan for settlement. The whole trou
ble could have been avoided had both miners and operators
manifested the concern they should have felt for the public.
Both owners and workers are justly entitled to censure for the
plight in which the nation was placed.
Properly organized work in Pendleton can do much towards
preventing hardships because of lack of fuel. Let us have a sys
tem about his matter so as to properly safeguard those who are
not blessed with full coal bins.

the internal gear drive is the basis of several excel
lent makes of rear axle. The excellence of this form
of power transmission is recognized almost universal
ly by automotive engineers ; and its widespread en
dorsement by truck users is evidenced by the pre
ponderence of internal gear driven trucks.
The second feature is exclusive in Torbensen
Drive patented impossible of imitation or im
provement. A forged-steel I-Beam carries all the
load. No other drive can have a forged-steel IlBeam
load carrier with a patente6 shoulder engagement
for maintaining practically perfect, permanent align
ment of the load-carrying and driving parts.
This construction has made Torbensen Drive
strong and long-lasting. And at the same time it has
reduced its weight to about half that of ordinary rear
axle drives. This strong, liffhtweight construction
makes Torbensen Drive save gas, oil and repairs, and
increases rear-tire mileage about twenty per cent.
Torbensen Drive has stood the test of seventeen
years' hard work. Throughout this period its basic
design has remained unchanged and unchanging
except for logical improvements in details.
This adherence to a fixed mechanical principle,
and to an advanced form of its application, has re
sulted in a seasoned, thoroughly established rear
axle drive for motor trucks.
