THE BOY AND THE FARM.
Thirteen-year-old John Arthur Hinckley, heir to a
$4,000,000 estate, accustomed to all the luxury of New
York and Paris, is tired of splendid hotels and steamships
and automobiles and fine clothes and elegant houses. He
wants to live on a farm.
He savs he could be happy if he only had a pony, a
dog and some rabbits, and fields and woods to ramble
around in, and a stream to fish and swim in. And so his
.guardian has authorized the purchase of a farm where
he can eet his heart's desire. ,
It may seem strange to many boys in the country,
who wish they had the things ot which John Arthur is
weary. But those same boys do not know when they are
well off. John Arthur has a sense of real values. He
knows that a pony is better than a limousine, that a dog
is better than a yacht, that a family of rabbits is better
than a houseful of servants, that a pasture field is prefer
able to a city park and "swimmin' hole" to a private sea
beach. He has a pretty good notion that wild berries
and wintergreen leaves and horse-sorrel and sarsafras
root gathered by one's own hands are sweeter than all the
wares of the confectioners.
How many men, in middle life or old age, look back
with longing to the joys of life on the farm, forgetting
the hardships that went with it! And what man brought
up in 'a rich home ever reverts with similar appreciation
and sentiment to the pleasures of his early environment?
Time tells. Young John Arthur is wise beyond his
years; " - -.
BANK BOOK OR PAY ENVELOPE.
ferred. They offered bonuses to all employes who would
start such bank accounts. '
The employee so paid rarely drew out from tne bank
all his week's wages. Instead he would draw only what
his family actually needed to meet current expenses. And
as he saw his small beginning in saving increasing, he be
came enthusiastic over the plan.
Still another gain was recognized. The bank deposit
system had done away with the standing in line on pay
day waiting for a turn at the pay office window. The
latter system was thoroughly exposed as a time-waster,
an inconvenience and an undignified proceeding. Calling
at the bank proved to be a pleasanter.and more efficient
method of drawing one's pay.
It is said that the idea has become popular among var
ious industries in England and is spreading to others.
It wouldn't be a bad idea to try out in this country,
not only to cultivate the thrift habit, but because of the
added convenience and safety. In the past year or two in
various parts of the country there have been big pay-roll
robberies. If the pay envelope were abolished in favor
of the bank book, such robberies would be impossible.
BUSINESS BY AIR.
In England, during the war, many employers under
took to encourage thrift among, their employes by estab
lishing the custom of depositing weekly wages .to the
worker's account in any bank the worker himself pre-

AN OLD TRUTH.
When I'd impart a moral lesson I spring it many
times; and so there's sameness, I'm confessin', in these
uplifting rhymes.The same old tale must be repeated in lilt
and catch and rune, or my intent would be defeated, for
men forget so soon. These repetitions will not hurt you
if they should call to mind some good old time substan
tial virtue that you have left behind. It seems to me all
men are wasting, their coin they all unload; with merry
steps I see them hasting along the poorhouse road. A year
or two, when war was raging, we salted wealth away; and
talked, with faces worn and aging, about the rainy day.
But when the beastly war was over, with all its stress and
din, we kicked around like mules in clover, and blew our
money in. And ever harder we are blowing our little
shining store; we laugh like chumps to see it going, and
then blow in some more. And people say that I am raving
and should take in my sign, when I insist on weekly sav
ing, on putting coin in brine. We're spending cash like
drunken sailors, our orgy's a disgrace; and someday we
shall all be wailers down at the wailing place. Now is the
time,-while money's plenty, to make your assets thrive;
and out of every hard-earned twenty you ought to save a
five. " ' ' l .. -

- The senators who are holding up ratification of the
pettce treaty because of their concern for the Chinks on
Shanturig peninsula seem to care little that the uncertain
ty their action is working great hardships upon the people
of their own country. The abnormal condition caused by
failure of the senate to conclude peace is unsettling busi
ness and industry and causing serious unrest inany
quarters. The recalcitrant senators are simply a lot of
small-fry politicians playing to the galleries in the hope
that their gyration will attract attention and gain them
notoriety. Think of Borah, Johnson, Sherman and Poin
dexter posing as special champions of China and willing
to see their own country go to smash rather than that a
single pig-tail lose his right to smoke his opium -and broil
his rats free from Japanese interference or supervision.!
President Wilson talked plainly tooths railroad
unions when he told them that they could not have all
they.asktd and must play fair with the American people.
There was a determined ring in his words that these rad
icals would do well to heed, since the nation has grown
tired of unjustified strikes, which is hampering produc
tion in every line.
Despite labor troubles, the peace treaty controversy
and numerous other disturbing questions which fill the
papers, we now and then see an indication of return to
normal times. Just now the baseball magnates are scrap
ping among themselves and there are rumors 'of a third
major league in the east.
Organization of a Rotary club in Salem marks a step
in our progress cityward. Rotarians are usually found
in a large place and if it isn't so large when they organize
their, unselfish efforts in the interest of the community

Uncle Sam has embarked in the mail-order business
