The government through its cam
paign to encourage popular savings
In thrift and war savings stamps,
has brought the word. "thrift" into
commoner usage than ever. One
hears it on every hand. Yet how
many people who use it realize that
( thrift is a' preliminary 'process and
entirely distinct from saving?
The thrifty person is not the one
who puts 25 cents into a thrift stamp
which should be put into a pair of
new shoe laces, or five dollars into
a "W. S. S. which should be set aside
that week for meat.
Thrift only paves the way for sav
ing. It considers carefully present
needs and future possibilities and
decides what are necessary expenses,
setting aside such a portion of the
Income as will provide for them. It
also determines what are unneces
sary expenses, and stops the outgo
of money for them.
That is not thrift which neglects
either prooess, nor can there he any
security in savin gs when either is
neglected. The essential item of ex
penditure, temporarily ignored, will
have to toe met finally, probably 'by
taking from the savings what should
never have been put there. The un
necessary expenditure oft repeated
means no savings at all.
Thrift holds the scale between the
two, and upon the nicety with which
a balance is maintained 'between le
gitimate expenditure and waste will
depend 'present comfort and future
Bootleggers beware! Governor
Olcott has appointed Frank Hopkins,

Rogue River salmon fishermen are
getting a fancy price for their catch
trot they deserve It. If you don't
think so, Just get into a small boat

pools and snags.

MEDFORD ELKS COME IN FORCE
(Continued frenf page 1)
"Howya Gonna Keep 'em Down on
the Farm" and the monologue by
Geo. T. Collins : were decided bits,
after Tvhlcli Herbert Alfred, suposed
to be the wildest Elk in captivity,
sang "Can You Tame Wild : Wim
mln." , It was a frenzied song sung
by a frantic' man.
The male quartette, -Maddoxi Fish,
Vawter and Corliss, received genuine
applause and were! repeatedly en-
cared, Mr: Vawter later singing
"I'm Always1 Chasing Rainbows;" a
beautiful ballad' The end song by
Quisenberry' and' Jerdme; whom it is
rumored are past-masters1 In the art
ot minstrelsy, fairly brought down
the house. The song was entitled
"Oh Death Where Is Thy Sting," and
there were many Elks present who
really believed there was no eting In
death, if the song told the truth. Fol
lowing this was a march song, "Dixie
Military Ball" by Herbert Alfred, a
speciality by Geo. T. Wilson, and an
other speciality by Quisenberry and
