The constant drive for thrift
is having effect noto. only among
the older people, but is spread
ing to school: children, as seen
by the report of sixty-one sav
ior banks formed in as many
Chicago public schools last year..
The report shows- that 136S8
children saved $27,115.94, and of
this amount $11,200.90 has been
transferred to regular banks..
Six pupils of the seventh and
eighth grades ' conducted the
bank3. Any sum from five cents
up may be deposited, and as
soon as a pupil's account amounts
to $5 it is transferred to a reg-j
alar bask and an account with
the pupil is opened. It is reas
onable to, suppose that rural
schools will adopt the teaching
of thrift as a- subsidiary course..
The town and rural district
schools have the same opportu
nity to learn economy and thrift
Work will be commenced soon

A good way to kill a town is
ta close all plaets of amusement
on Sunday s that people; will go
elsewhere for entertainment; to
send away from town-lor. shoes,
drygoods, clothing, building ma
terials, printing, et&s to vote
down all prepositions and . bonds
to make public improvements; to
drive out all contractors and
their crews and thus minimize
public expenditure; to see to it
that no corporation of public
utility makes say profit on its
io vestment and keep, all fereign
capital out. With that kind f
policy it won't take long to kill
a good town.
