THURSDAY. OCTOBER 20. 1921
. A FOOLISH BANKER
There lived a man in a prosperous
community who organized a banking
house where all his fellow townsmen,
friends and acquaintances throughout
the whole country side came and de
posited their earnings. The season
was prosperous and the banker had a
corps of efficient bookkeepers, cash
iers, clerks, etc. As the days passed,
however, the time came when crops
were not so good, the prices lower,
and trade in general was on the de
cline. What did the banker do? Since
the individual deposits were fewer in
number and smaller in quantity he
\ undertook to economize by discharg
ing all of his high priced and efficient
help. This led to the keeping of in
correct records which in turn gave
one or tw’o cheap dishonest employees
an opportunity to take the funds of
the institution and, as they thought,
cover up their deeds of theft.
Finally, however, the day arrived
for the regular inspection of the
bank’s affairs by the State Bank Ex
aminer and not until then did the man
ager of this institution realize the
folly of his short sighted policy of
economy. The whole community be
came aroused and excited when the
word was passed from lip to ear that
the bank was in the hands of the
State Bank Examiner. The final out
come was the loss of thousands of dol
lars which the depositors had placed
there for safekeeping.
There is another asset which is
just as important as bank deposits
and which we are so frequently guilty
of foolishly wasting. HEALTH.
Sometimes we do not protect our
bodies from the ravages of many con
ditions which are known to be pre
ventable. This is due to one or more
of the following causes: (1) lack of
knowledge on the subject. (2) indif
ference. (3) indolence. (4) financial
Discussing each of these causes
briefly it can be said. (1) that your
county board of health and your state
board o fhealth will be glad to furnish
you with information along the line
of the prevention of many diseases.
(2) Indifference is really inexcusable,
and goes in hand with (3). laziness.
If the business men of our country
were as indifferent and inactive about
their business as the people as a
whole are about their physical wel
fare, more than half of all of our
people would be thrown into bank
ruptcy in less than six months time,
causing such a financial panic as this
country never saw. (4) Financial
inability is not always real, but is
more often only imaginary. There is
certainly no question but that the
American people lavished large sums
of money on many useless luxuries
during the World War, and also for
nearly 2 years thereafter, but it is sad
to contemplate the fact that practical
lv none of this “easy money” was
spent for the purpose of bettering
health conditions. A man could say
to himself, “If I get sick I can get
a physician because I have the money
with which to pay him and money will
claim his prompt and efficient atten
tion.’’ But how is it today? often
no money for the actual necessities
of life. Suppose sickness invades
the home, where is the doctor who
wants to furnish gasoline, oil. tires,
automobile upkeep, medicines, etc.,
when there is no prespect of pay?
During this period is it wise to neg
lect our physical well-being? Asa
matter of fact wouldn’t it be good
business to spend more time, thought,
and effort to protect ourselves and
our communities from physical bank
Would it not be well to have the
Ellis Health law adopted in this coun
ty that we and our children might
have the protection this law offers.
Announcement was made in this
pa;ier recently of an Institute-Clinic
to be held by Emory University on
venereal diseases. This Institute has
been held with what we consider
wonderful success, one hundred and
forty-five physicians in attendance,
coming from seventy-one counties,
every section of the state being repre
The student body passed resolutions
thanking the University for the oppor
tunity of attending and expressing
their thanks for the instruction given,
alsfo asking that the Institute be given
again next year.
There is no way of estimating the
good that this Institute was to our
State; this we do know, that each phy
sician who attended was well paid for
his time and that this community
will receive from him more expert
service than previously, and that if It
should be repeated next year, our phy
sicians should attend in greater num

job I'm not superstitious, otherwise I
should be miserable all day today!”
Smiling happily. Josh dropped his
collar stud. Nevertheless, after half
an hour's search he fouqd it again,
and continued dressing.
“Oh, Josh,” said Mrs. Smiler at
breakfast, “the pedal broke olf my sew

“That’s unfortunate,” said Smiler.
“But never'mind, dear, I'll bring you
back a motor this evening, and you’ll
be able to run the machine on that."
It started to rain just as Smiler pre
pared to leave the house.
“My umbrella, dear?” he said to his

tell you, someone stole your umbrella
from the hall yesterday!”
“Oh, well,” answered Smiler, “It had
a hole in it. anyway !” And he stepped
out briskly through the shower.
Other little things, which many men
would foolishly have allowed to dis
turb them, did happen to Smiler that
day, but he did not grumble until re
turning home in the train he pulled
out bis fountain pen to jot down a
brilliant idea that had occurred to him.

GREAT POET TRUE GENTLEMAN
Carlyle’s Pen Portrait of Schiller
Among Finest of the Tributes
Paid to Him.
In liis dress and manner, as in all
things, he was plain and unaffected.
Among strangers, something shy and
retiring might occasionally be ob
served in him: in his own family, or
among his select friends, he was kind
hearted, free, and gay as a little child.
In public, his external appearance had
nothing in it to strike or attract. Of
an unpresuming aspect, wearing plain
apparel, his looks as he walked were
constantly bent on the ground; so that
frequently, as we are told, ‘‘lie failed
to notice the salutation of a passing
acquaintance; but If he heard It, he
would catch hastily at his hat, and
give his cordial ‘Guten Tag.’ ” Modesty,
simplicity, a total want of all parade
or affectation were conspicuous 1n
him. These nre the usual concomi
tants of true greatness, and serve to
mitigate its splendor. Common things
he did as a common man. His con
duct in such matters was uncalculated,
spontaneous; am] therefore natural
and pleasing.—Thomas Curlyle.

vigorous and healthy, are

Indigestion. The effects of a
disordered stomach on the
system are dangerous, and
prompt treatment of Indiges
tion Is important. “The only
medicine I have needed has
been something to aid diges

writes Mr. Fred Ashby, a
McKinney, Texas, farmer.
“My medicine is
for indigestion and stomach
trouble of any kind. I have
never found anything that
touches the spot, like Black-
Draught. I take it in broken
doses after meals. For a long
time I tried pills, which grip
ed and didn’t give the good
results. Black-Draught liver
medicine is easy to take, easy
to keep, inexpensive.”
