Offioial Paper for Morrow County.
LOOKING TEN YEARS AHEAD
"THE Census of 1930 is the most im-
portent numbering of the people
of the United States since the first
count of our inhabitants was made.
Even though all of the conclusions
to be drawn from it have not yet
become available, it has already
taught us more about ourselves
than we ever knew before.
Especially has it shown us that
one of the causes of our great na
tional prosperity is disappearing-
the steady increase in population
at a high rate. Decline m immigra
tion and decline in the birthrate
have combined to reduce our an-
nual rate of population growth to
about 1 per cent a year. Twenty
years ago we were growing at the
rate of 2 per cent a year; forty
years ago, at a 3 per cent rate.
This will make a great difference
in business, industries and invest
ments which depend upon increas
ing population for their own
growth. Real estate values depend
upon population. The rate of
growth in the big cities is falling off
more rapidly than in country towns
and small communities generally.
That means that real estate in the
large cities will not increase so rap
idly in value from year to year.
while in the smaller towns it will
increase at a faster rate.
The redistribution of population
is always an important factor in
business and industry. Nowhere
in the world do people shift their
homes from one place to another
as they do in America. Just now
the Census shows a strong tenden
cy of manufacturing industries
away from the larger centers and
to the smaller towns. That will
mean more building in the smaller
places in the next ten years, homes,
factories, stores, institutions and
public buildings. There probably
will be less building in the large
cities, and that largely by way of
replacing obsolete structures.
The declining birthrate is sure to
have a definite effect on building as
well as on business generally. Not
only will we need fewer school
buildings, especially in the lower
grades, but the type of home now in
growing demand is in smaller units
than formerly. Fewer babies are
born, but more of them grow up to
go to high school and college. More
people live to old age. It is not hard
to forecast a time coming when the
whole problem of living will center
more about the needs of the adults
and the elderly and less about the
needs of the children than ever be
fore in history.
HOW MONEY GROWS.
A L1IOST everybody has seen the
rV. tables of compound interest is
sued by savings banks showing how
much you would have at the end of
ten or twenty years if you invested
a certain amount at compound in
terest Most of us have speculated
on what a fortune we could pile up
for our grandchildren or great
grandchildren if we could leave our
money out at compound interest
for, say, a hundred years.
Those computations don't always
work out, however, as the trustees
of the funds left by Benjamin
International Sunday School Lesson for
JEBEMIAH THE PBOPHET 07 IN
Jeremiah 1:4-10; 31:27-34
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D. D.
Jeremiah wrought through the
reigns of four kings: Josiah, Jehoa
haz, Jehoiachim, Jehoiachin and
Zedekiah at which time Jerusalem
was taken captive in 586 B. C.
Throughout all his ministry this
prophet sought to stop the people in
their entrenched sins. When this
could not be accomplished golden
promises were given for the future
although the nation was about to
begin their seventy years of Baby
Getting started right and as early
as possible is of vast importance.
Jeremiah had much to be thankful
for in his home associations. He,
like Timothy was brought up in the
midst of God-fearing surroundings.
At about the age of 23 he under
stood that the Lord was calling him
to definite service as a prophet who
should speak forth calling mes
sages to a sinning people. The
modesty of the youth is apparent
as he calls himself only a child In
wisdom. Boldness in work, how
ever is manifested as soon as he Is
assured that he is to be an ambass
ador for Jehovah in dealing with
both kings and people. He believes
that the God who calls will ade
quately equip for the required serv
ice. Trying to excuse self when In the
wrong is not a new attitude in life.
It had become quite the custom then
to lay the blame for the present on
the doings of the past This was
often expressed by saying' "The
Franklin 140 years ago have discov
ered. Franklin set up two funds of a
thousand pounds $5,000 each, to
be lent at 5 percent interest for the
benefit of young working men in
the cities of Philadelphia and Bos
ton. In 100 years. Franklin com
puted, each city would have a fund
of 131,000 pounds. Of this, 100,000
pounds was to be used for public
improvements and the remaining
31,000 pounds reinvested at 5 per
cent for another hundred years. At
that time each city would have
some $20,000,000 he figured.
Franklin died in 1790. In 1890 the
Philadelphia fund, instead of
amounting to about $650,000, as he
had calculated, was only $90,000.
The Boston trustees had been able
to do a little better with their in
vestments, and had nearly $300,000,
but still less than half of what the
donor had estimated.
In other words, neither set of
trustees had been able to keep the
whole of the principal constantly
invested at 5 percent a year, with
safety. Financial and social condi
tions changed so much In a hun
dred years that none of the forms
of investment suggested by Frank
lin was available before the century
The great growth of fortunes in
America, as elsewhere, has not been
in investments in business or indus
try but in land. A little more than
100 years ago John G. Wendel, a fur
trader, bought several parcels of
land on Manhattan Island. His en
tire investment is said to have been
less than $100,000. None of the
land has ever passed out of the
Wendel family. All but one of the
Wendels has died and the sole own
er today is Miss Ella Wendel, grand
daughter of the original investor,
now past eighty years old. The as
sessment for tax purposes of her
Manhattan real estate for 1930, is
$43,421,000. Its actual value is said
to be in excess of $100,000,000.
There is no surer way to insure
independence to one's descendants
than to buy real estate in any grow
ing community and hang on to it

fathers have eaten a sour grape
and the children's teeth are set on
the edge." This is just another
way of blaming heredity and en
vironment for all of our present
situation. A new psychology, or
way of thinking, was called for. Jer
emiah made it clear that God was
not dealing with the people as a
group but that everyone was in
dividually responsible unto Him.
This great principle is further en
larged in the New Testament. Paul,
In our Golden Text, stated: "Each
one of us shall give an account of
himself unto God" Romans 14:12.
This fact gives a new Incentive In
living. We may be handicapped by
the past but not bound down by it
No matter how bad present con
ditions may be there can be a
worthwhile future. Jeremiah bold
ly asserts this fact by his wonder
ful sweep of prophecies. He Is ad
dressing a people about to be taken
captives andyet he tells them that
in time they will return to their be
loved Jerusalem as a center, and
that the nation still has a glorious
history as their heritage. The hori
zon for blessings is still further en
larged as the world Is looked upon
as a vast neighborhood with Jeho
vah as the one loving father. Jere
miah looks out upon progress down
the ages from the view-point of the
Almighty. In that day "they shall
all knw me, from the least of them
unto the greatest of them, salth the
Lord." Divine favor is extended to
this world-wide family of God for
He will "forgive their Iniquity and
remember their sin no more." Such
hope enables us to be steadfast to
day and enlarge our efforts In right

JOHN JOSEPH GAINES!M.D.
Ice-cold water is a tempting bev
erage during the heated season; not
only that but every possible dainty
in iced dishes keeps our youngsters
busy devouring all they are able to
pay for. From tens of thousands
of counters, ice cream in endless
variety of combinations is dispens
ed, and too often is swallowed as
fast as the husky master or maid
can get it down.
This would all be very well if
something serious didn't result; not
in every instance, of course, but
now and then. And it's tough for
the victim when it happens; which
makes this word of caution timely.
A very excellent New York sur
geon told me some time ago, that
cases of appendicitis are five times
as frequent in August as in Decem
ber. He attributed the fact to the
wholesale eating and drinking of
ice-cold foods and beverages during
the hot months. He was operating

"This little lady," he said, "doubt
less frequents cold-drink stands and
drug-store fountains Sunday after
noons and every evening in the
week; she has probably averaged
five to fifteen ice-cold dishes or
drinks at each visit to the resorts."
"No, the beverages are not im
pure; you couldn't find a germ in
any of the stuff dispensed," he con
tinued, "it's the COLD that does
the mischief. . All intestinal tracts
contain germs and these do not
attack a healthy canal; but,, chill
the delicate lining of the stomach
and bowel, and the natural juices
that are protective are stopped in
their functioning; the germs then
attack the weakened mucous sur

certainly, not in excess. If taken
