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 inability. 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 ruptcy? 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. INSTITUTE-CLINIC WELL ATTENDED 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 sented. 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 bers.

TRULY OrriMISVI HAS LIMiT Josh Smiler Met D'-y’s Many Adversi ties With a Smile, but There Are Seme Things! ‘lla. l a. ha !" laughed Joshua Stall ci'. “It's Friday, the thirteenth. Good 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 ing machine yesterday I" “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 wife. “Oh, .Tosh,” she cried. “I forgot to 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. The pen was empty! Well, I ask you I Even optimism lias its limits, —Chicago Daily News. 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.
