NOT MONEY BUT MEN!
"Behold I will stir up the Medes
against them, which shall not re
gard silver; and as for gold, they
shall not delight in it" Isaiah 13-17.
On a certain occasion Senator
Capper, in a newspaper article said
that: "The biggest pile of pure gold
in the world is under a little square
building in Wall Street, in New
York city, 4000 tons of the yellow
metal In bars like bricks. Each
weighs twenty pounds and is worth
That buildnig was holding 8,000,
000 pounds of solid gold, worth $2,
400,000,000. Commenting on this, in his col
umn headed, "Today," Arthur Bris
bane says: "There is one comfort
for New York, in case we never
have an air fleet, and in case a
real air fleet should ever visit the
city. There will be money enough
to load on a ship and pay the price
to save our biggest city from de
struction." Thinking on this, our minds turn
to a prophesy Isaiah made con
cerning ancient Babylon. Babylon
had wealth, huge treasuries ofit,
and in her great wealth she trusted.
In case Babylon was beleaguered,
and in case Babylon was unable to
defend herself, she had gold en
ough (she thought), to buy off her
enemies. But Isaiah warns Baby
lon that she is resting in false se
curity. He warns Babylon of the
coming of the Medes against her.
and in phophesy sets forth the ac
complishments of it.
The hordes of the Medes from
over the mountains were not to be
bribed or bought over. "They shall
not regard silver; and as for gold;
they shall not delight in it."
No possible amount of gold can
guarantee the security and perman
ency of a nation. In the last resort
the thing that counts in making a
nation safe and sure of its future,
is not wealth of gold but wealth
of manhood, Christian manhood
not money, not airships but men.
"God give us men."

we invite you to come and worship

comfortable these hot days.

where it took one-fourth of entire
crops of wheat at present prices to
pay the tax bill. Various ways of
reducing taxes were given.
Joe Devine of Lexington could
see no reason why public employees
should not stand a cut in wages in
line with general reduction. R. E.
Allstott of Eight Mile said, "Go
down the line and cut wherever a
legitimate way can be found." Chas.
Valentine of Lexington proposed
cutting out all deputies, roadmas-
ter, county caretaker, and county
John J. Wightman said there was
no doubt farmers could stand re
duction. Chas. Thomson said it
was a poor time to think about
cutting after bonds had been voted,
but suggested going after the fel
low with the money, if possible to
get it Buying from the big cor
porations Instead of the smaller
ones, was a reason eiven bv him
for part of the present situation.
trench Burroughs said that re
ducing taxes was easy. There are
too many public officials, he said,
and many overpaid. R. B. Wilcox
said people have been going thru
a period of extravagance in every
thing; that the time had come to
economize. A better price for what
the farmer raises is the real need,
"Should Keep 10 Bushels."
F. S. Parker said taxes must be
reduced if people pay them. He
suggested a 10 per cent cut in sal
aries and wages, but discouraged
cutting out employment altogether,
as people must live.
C. B. Cox said go ahead with or
ganization. Claude Cox, "Take ev
ery little item; cut where possible."
R. W. Turner suggested that in line
with the prevailing spirit of pessi
mism every farmer should retain
at least ten bushels of wheat for
his own needs, while saying to go
ahead with organization.
Oscar Lundell told of accomplish
ment of grange committees in Gil
liam county in bringing about a 23
percent reduction in taxes for this
year. Bert Johnson made one of
the most stirring talks of the day
in which he told of the farmers"
condition, and suggested appoint
ment of a hard-boiled committee to
sit down with the county court and
go over the budget Item by item.
The lone school board accomplish
ed a saving of $1300 in their budget
by this method, he said.
Young Scribbler and his bride
were alone for the first time in
their new home. "Darling," she
cried, "I must make a terrible con
fession to you I can't cook."
"Aw, that's all right, dear, I've
a confession to make, too. I'm a
poet and there won't be anything
"Mama," said little Dorothy,
ter don't tell the truth."
"Why, Dorothy, you mustn't say
such things," reproved the mother.
"Well, last night I heard her say,
Charlie if you do that again I'll call
mama.' And he did it twice more
and she didn't call."
