Tender, gentle, brave and true,
l-ovlng u whate'er we do!
Waiting, watching at the gate
For the footstep that are late,
Fleeplen through the hours of night
Till ahe know that we're all rin'nt.
Pleased with every word we aay
That is ever mother"! way.
Others sneer and turn aside.
Mother welcomes ua with pride;
Over-hoastful of us, too,
fllorying in all we do.
First to praise and last to blame,
lve that always stays the same.
Following us where'er we stray
That is ever mother's way.
She would grant us all we seek,
(live her strength where we are weak.
Beauty? She would let it go
For the Joy we yearn to know.
Ufe? She'd give It gladly, too.
For the dream that we pursue;
She would toil that we might play
That is ever mother's way.
Not enough for her are floVers,
Her life is so blent with ours
That in all we dare and do
he is partner, through and through;
Suffering when we suffer pain,
Happy when we smile again,
Living with us. night and day
That Is ever mother's way.

PRICES AND MONEY
THE price index of the Bureau of Labor statistics shows a
further decline of about 3 points from last month and
leaves the average price level at about 62 per cent above ;
prewar figures as contrasted with a peak figure of about 172
approximately a jear ago. This fall of 110 points is equivalent
to a shrinkage in the actual price level of April. 1920, of about i
40 per cent and is probably the most remarkable movement of
the kind in recent financial history. As the government figures
show, however, the price decline is coming to an end in the i
wholesale field although some adjustments remain to be made.
A great deal is still to be done in adjusting the relation between
retail and wholesale prices. The increase in the supply of time
money has been noticeable during the past week and there is
distinct evidence of improvement in the banking outlook at
many points throughout the country. , While this improvement
has not been paralleled abroad, the tendency in both Great Brit
ain and France is toward better conditions.
Although reactions in some stocks have occurred from time
to time during the past week many have held the gains they
scored a week ago. The volume of trading has been on a mod
erate basis and it has been largely concentrated in comparative
ly few issues. Improvement in the oils, coppers and automobiles
has again been noted and the steel shares in spite of some pro
fessional selling have in the main held their own well. There
has been a better tone in the railroad list and while sugar and
some other issues have suffered the decline has not been
marked. The immediate future of the market is of course very
dependent upon developments both at home and abroad and
tmtil a good deal of the uncertainty is removed the market will
no doubt continue to back and fill; ;nevertheless, even the pro
fessional trading element is beginning to realize that while
prices give way here and there when special drives are made
against them, long stock does not come out in sufficient quantity
to make any deep or lasting impression on values, which carries
with it the conviction that the trend is in the direction of better
prices. From the Clews' Financial Review.
HAVE YOU YOUR FIVE SLAVES?
HJMAN slavery exists no more in civilized countries. Yet we
have slaves just the same. Instead of fellow beings, we
have turning wheels that work for us.
The average Greek freedman considered that he needed five
Flaves to take care of himself and his family. That was about
one slave to one free person. Greek culture rested on the bowed
back of slave labor. The modern American family is much bet
ter supplied. There are five energy servants at work for each
of us twenty-five to a family of five.
George Otis Smith, director of the Geological Survey, points
out that America leads all countries in the use of mechanical
power to back up the brains and hands of its workers. And
there is the means by which we can hope to keep our lead over
countries where goods are produced with more sweat and lower
