never came back again, but on Nov. 27, ISC-', the earth passed through a

1845 and 1872 the comet simply went to pieces and that these shooting
stars was its debris. Now, 4l) cars later, they predict that we. will go
through the debris aeain. The picture, which we print by special ar

Campaign Is Seeded.
While the government and other
latencies are vers' active in endeav
loring to induce people to save, it is
I evident that such a campaign is di
rected to the non-savers, and the
only systematic campaign to help the
savers to preserve their savings by
judicious investment is a constant
campaign in behalf of Treasury
notes, short-time investments.
On the other hand, there is unin
terrupted bombardment of savers by
swindling stock promoters and an
even more injurious crusade by well
meaning but ill-advised promoters of
new enterprises, wholly untried, usu
ally undercapitalized, in such specu
lations as oil and mining and similar
At a hearing before the judiciary
Committee of the House in the pres
ent session of Congress the Federal
Reserve Board asked for additional
legislation to protect savers from
swindling stock jobbers, the board
making the statement that in the last
year these swindlers had taken from
the American people more than half
a billion of their saved capital. Prob
ably injudicious speculations took a
very much larger sum.
Private institutions engaged in le
gitimate bond, mortgage and other
investments, it seems to me, should
awake to the duty of educating the
21 million savers of capital in the
United States in caring for their cap
ital, once saved. The people need a
campaign of primary education on
what capital is, and what investment
is. They unstintingly deny them
selves luxuries in order to save, and
billions of dollars to this saved capi
tal, of incalculable value to the na
tion and all its industries, regularly
are wasted in specuation.
Many Are Ignorant.
Students of this subject report
that it is not the untrained mechanic
and artisan alone, who is ignorant of
the A B C of investment, but among
the victims of promotion are mer-
Savings Lost to Stock Sharks Total
Vast Yearly Sum.
Learn First, Spend After, Is His Ad
vice to New Investors.
By ARTHUR CAPPER.
Killtor'N Notts Senator Arthur Cap
per of Kansas was for many years hea-I
of a string of papers, Itolh daily an.l
weekly, the latter farm papers with im
mense circulations. Thousands of his
subscribers fell victim to men with
stock schemes and blue-sky sal-s ami
thousands of them wrote to tlte editor!
and publisher asking his advice. In the1
following he Kives that advice to all
who care to read and, as Senator Cap-j
per's entire life is indication of rare- j
ful advancement, superior business
judgment and the confidence of his fel- i
low citizens, what he has to say may tie,
accepted without hesitation as the ad-!
vice of one who knows. j
Among all the impressive "evidence;
of American solidarity during the'
war, hardly any was more awaken-j
ing than the subscriptions to the Lib-,
erty Loans. The country had not
suspected the potential capita! fund:
of the American people. It wa
amazed by the response of the peo
ple to the appeals of the government
for funds. And this astonishment
grew as one great loan drive fol
lowed another in swift succession.
There seemed to be no bottom to the
popular purse, as there was no fal
tering in popular patriotism.
.More than 21 million subscribers
offered nearly 7 billion dollars for
the government bonds. This was the
culmination. The fifth loan was for
a smaller amount, which was over
subscribed, like all its predecessors.
Here, out of the income of two
years, a minimum of 21 million per
sons had subscribed for some 22 bil
lions of war loans.
Only Books Showed.
Until this exhibit of the potential
savings or capital fund of the people
the only concrete indication of this
fund was the books of the savings
banks, which prior to the war showed
i upwards of 11 million depositors
! with balances of above 5 biHion dol-
, lars. And it may be remarked inci
dentally here that three years after
he war, notwithstanding the huge
; Liberty Bond payments, savings de
j posits not only have not declined but
have increased by a billion dollars,
; with an increase net of 300,000 de-
The effect produced by this extra
ordinary demonstration of the sav
ings capacity of the people is seen
: in several organizations, govern
mental and crivate, since formed to
promote saving and thrift, by public
I ity propaganda. The Treasury De
, partment conducts such a publicity
'campaign, the Reserve Banks also
I and one or two private organizations,
all urging people to save.

Billions of dollars wisely invested
eevery year which heretofore have
been dissipated in speculation will
evidently have a capital effect in mit
igating panics, business depression
and unemployment. An increase,
such as it seems there is a opportui
ity to secure, in the annual incre
ment of saved capital that will be
permanently saved by sound invest
ment, will by steadily enlarging the
national capital fund at a greater
rate than heretofore lower the cost
and price of capital, give to every
kind of legitimate enterprise a
greater sense of security and cour
age, tend to a steadier employment
of labor and to a lowered price level
and cost of living and consequently a
higher standard of living.

She inspires my pen as I sit aloft,

Of course she cools when I ain't

so she braces right up and stands

So, I flirt with her, at her every
whim, in neglect of my lawful spouse,

cupidity, to the propensity to specu
late, to accept a chance to gamble
on the future, which is instinctive in
all of us. He is no mean hypnotist
and endeavors to put caution to sleep
and by suppression of all conflicting
impulses and ideas intensify the pas
sion for quick gain. His propaganda
is alluring, but there is enticement
also in other instincts, in self-preservation,
in security, in retaining what
one has. These are also primary
human instincts and are capable of
being played on effectively, if one
can get the knack of it.
