POWER OF MONEY.

exact ninount It Is rip li t that weahould
possess? Wishes, tuates, desires, dif
fer. We ourselves do not know what
our limit should be.
With too iiiui'h money ono la likely
to become conceited, to lose sympathy
and be hard hearted and more than
likely regardless of the menus ho takes
to add to his store. If he baa too little
be may lie envious of others, embitter
ed toward society, tempted to dlslum
esty, or there may lie real suffering
for need of what money can buy. No
one, not even the man hi a prison cell,
fun live In any degree of comfort with
out money It If necessary to life.
Yet there are niauy things of greater
value than money, thing! that money
cannot buy. that are necessary to our
welfare. Indue love of money la a
jiolson in the soul, eutliig out what la
of most worth We may pay too high
a price for its acquisition We should
Judge our desire for money by our

HEALTH AND HOUSE SCREENS

It la a duty to protect the health of
the home and to tight any peril that
may menace It. You may have doubts
or become discouraged when It comes
to cleaning np and keeping so clean
that you won't have flies, or when you
try to keep them down by poisoning
or trapping, but there's one means of
protecting yourself against files that Is
safe and effective. This Is thorough
screening. Doors, windows sml porch
es, upstairs and downstairs, should lie
thoroughly screened In summer for the
comfort of the home and the health of
the family. Mosquitoes are a health
menace us well as files, mid thorough
screening protects ugulusl both.
A few years ago screening was con
slilered almost as InelTecilve as a
means of protecting agulusl tiles as
poisoning, disinfecting and a few fee
Me efforts at ('leaning up. None of
these methods prohibited Hies. They
apparently continued la come In their
usual large number. Lot the trouble
was we did not know how to propel li
use screens. Then only the klt hen
and dining room doors and window
were si rccned, while the doors and
windows of the oilier part of the house
were left unprotected
I-atei we found that not only all the
openings to the bouse must huve
screens In them, but thai they must
fit and lie made so fly light dial no fly
could enter. This was found more ef

screened, particularly the bnck porch,

did we coma to know the real safety
and comfort that lay behind screened
