i,» About fotirmillion Americans cast off their moonngs
and sought new homes during the spring moving season.
For this unwillingness to stay put another year they
paid approximately $68,000,000. Eye filling is the item
of $20,000,000 charged by truckmen for the transportation
of household- goods. And of course, the change of scene
inspired the purchase of new furniture and new utensils,
these two items accounting for $40,000,000 iu the total
estimated amount of the bill-* Plumbers and fitters get
$4,000,000 for their services, and restaurantg prospered
by another $4,000,000 paid for meals while household
cooking facilities were out#of commission.
It is apparent th at a good p a rt of the population is
always quite ready to break home ties and seek the balm
of change—to know from year to ’year whether variety
is really the spice of life, as it is advertised. The spring
hegira is only a p a rt of the annual moving, for October
has its exodus no less renowned, and through the year
are other minor movings. I t seems worth while to note
here that the first day of May is now made occasion for
a tumultuous demonstration of intent to pay tribute to n
new landlord, rather than' to pay compliments to a new
Though the w orld’s'first great lawgiver codified all
the regulations needed for civil and religious life into
exactly ten rules, and a groatpr than Moses put His code
in two rules, the law makers of the United States in the
year 1925 had before them 40,986 laws and succeeded in
jamming through 13,018.
That total of 13,000 new laws was for one year only.
If yon figure as many law's are passed every year, for
ten years we have 130,000 new regulations for contract
and conduct from bootlegging whiskey to reading the
risque, from eats and heats and ash pans and baseball
fans to free speeches and legal leeches and radio waves
and wage slaves and strike-breakers and strike-makers.
These laws are solely state and federal,, not munici­
pal nor county regulations.
I f all the bills proposed in bne rich middle-western
state in 1925 had passed, it would have added to the in­
debtedness of tliat stato a billion, dollars. Put the rate of
interest at 4 per cent. Figure the tax for yourself.
At least 75 per cent of the surplus laws proposed
are to extract and exact the dollar from th rift’s pocket.

How of tea have you said to a salesman, “ T h a t’s more than I care to

spared this little em barrassm ent T h at’s one of the great'services ren­
dered by newspaper advertising.
By reading the advertisements before going-, to the stores, you
know what you will have to pay for an article. You need not reveal
your financial status to a salsman. You perhaps do not like to ask the
price of goods anyhow. If the merchant has told you the price yn
bis advertisement, you do not have to ask.
Any way you figure it out, it pays you to read the advertisements.
(Regularly! The one advertisement you skip may contain just the news
you would haye welcomed. Bead all the advertisements you can.
Keep informed.
The intelligent way to shop is to read the advertisements and then
go to the stores th at offer the beat values. Make notes beforehand of
the articles that interest you. T hat's the way' to get the Burnt for
your money. T h at’s the way to Save time.
