ouin is passing, too;
But would the American jeo
ple be greatly handicapped for a
very long time if the railroads
and their employes tied up the
traffic for any length of time?
Is not the Yankee American in
genuity possessed by the men of
these times great enough to
soon have things going again
without the railroads? This is
the time of good roads agitation,
and many good roads there are.
Motor trucks can haul big loads
of freight and can travel on
good roads almost as fast as the
ordinary freight train. Wagons
and many other kinds of con
veyances would be called into
service to meet the demands of
Tieing up the traffic would
work a hardship on the traveling
salesman for a while, but they
would soon all be coming around

we not stand it. Just think of
the tons of second class mail
that comes Into the Springfield
post office every week. How
much of it Is read? Most of us
could get along without most of
the second class mall we receive
and still get along very nicely.

suffer hardships for a while, the
shippers of perishable produce
will lose their crops, and the
public in general will suffer an

owWook to appear wise, whe'n
really they are too lazy to think.
No man ever got into trouble
practicing industry, persever
ance, honesty and sobriety.
Salesmanship is making the
other fellow feel as you do about
the goods you have to sell.
Don't ask too much advice;
you can always get a unanimous
vote not to do something.
It is worse to feel poor than
to be poor.
THE WAR AGAINST ILLITERACY
Nearly every state has some pecul
iar illiteracy problem of its own.
Many of tho older sections priding
themselves on pure native stock aro
now overrun with non-English speak
ing .mmlgrant8. The South has Jts
ncgrqes and mountain whites.
North Carolina has been doing par
ticularly good work the past year in
QSl "moonlight schools" conducted in
50 counties. It has set a good ex
ample. Other states are also active.
Tho industrial cities have long had
their night schools. But the volume
of illiteracy is not yet appreciably reduced.
In times of world strain, the peril
of a large non-English speaking popu
lation is obvious. The man gets his
notions from his foreign language pa
per, and orators of his own alien race,
Learn to mako tho most of life,
Lose no happy day;
Time will never bring thee back
Chances swept away.
Leave no tender, word unsaid,
Love while life shall last
"The mill will never grind
With the water that has passed.'
Work while yet the daylight shines,
Man of strength and will;
Never does tho streamlet glido
Unless by the mill.
Wait not till tomorrow's sun
Reams upon the way;
AH that thou can'st call thino own
Lies In thy today;
Power, Intellect and health
May not, can not last;
"The mill will never grind
With tho water that has passed."
Oh, the wasted hours of life
That have drifted by;
Oh, the good we might have
Lost without a sigh;
Love that we might once havo saved
By a single word;
Thoughts conceived, but never penned,
Take the proverb to thino heart,
Take! Oh, hold it fast!
"The mill will never grind
With the water that has passed,"
