THEY HAVE TO HE
The human race isn't as husky as
it used to be, according to some ex
Ierts, but the fact that it has sur
vived the home brew concoctions dur
Inp the past two years indicates that
it is still pretty hardy.
A BANKER STARTED THIS
A story is told of a man who re
cently wrote a will in which he
named six bankers to be his pall
bearers. "They have carried me for
twenty years," he explained, "and
they might as well finish the job."
OJfH WAY OF BURNING IT UP
Here's a free adv. for the bankers
and a warning for those who make
their deposits in the old stocking
A Wisconsin farmer, who didn't be
lieve in banks, saved up $2,500. Re
cently his three kiddies found it and
used it to light the kitchen fire.
OUGHT TO HE IN BED
If from no other reason than from
Ihe standpoint of health, one would
think that several of the parents we
know would prevent their sons and
daughters from roaming around late
at night. Nobody but Edison or a
cross baby can get along on four or

THINK IT OVER, BOYS
There is food for mental mastica

the term. The average bov would
keep ,m the straight road if he real
ized that when he goes wrong his
mother is the real sufTerer.

Not even a murmur. They are
ieeply perturbed how the govern
ment will raise the bonus money.
It is simple. Place a bonus tax on
.var fortunes from 150,000 up.
They say the bonus money will be
rincipally a cash one. That the
noney will be taken from the woi li

disappear from trade channels. What
