Now and then we hear again of
the persuasive and anxious activities
of itinerant stock salesmen in the
neighborhood. But we do not hear
as we once heard of their carrying
away thousands of dollars of the
communits money. The people are
growing wary. They haven't known
of any money coming back from coal
mines and lead and silver mines and
gold bonanzas and hopeful indus
trial projects. They arc beginning
to realize that if any concern has a
good thing it doesn't need to scout
around in the highways and byways
hundreds of miles from the scene of
its operations, in order to finance its
proposition. There may still be a

It sotms to be the Harding idea to

Every dollar subscribed for Nea
East relief is so spent, without a
cent being taken for overhead. Such
endorsement is given by the audit of
the United States government. And
no dollar could be subscribed for a
nobler, worthier cause than for tho
salvation of tho stricken Christian
peoples of Armenia and Syria, who
because of their loyalty to their God
and the allies were scourged and
persecuted by the utipcakab!e Turk.
While without a profit at present
prices, the wheat grower is not with
out a prophet to bring cheer and con
solation. Editor Pickcl of Chicago
continues to predict an early ad
vance in wheat and strongly urges
the purchase of - March options. If
he proves to be right he should be
awarded the Inland Empire wheat
belt (speaking figuratively) as the
champion seer of the day.
