BANKIMC IN THE CHIMNEY
There aro many who do not be
lijgvp, , banking their money with
the' legally constituted banks of the
country and who yet hold the be
lief .money is unsafe unless de
posited in the hopnes, chimney cor
ners, under the house or in a sock
or mattress tick. These people are
usually the ones who lose their
earnings and savings by fire and
burglars. Monary destroyed by fire
cannot be redeemed and the loss is
absolute. The old legends of the
black cat crossing in front of one on
the roadside and the Jaybird spend
ing Fridays in another country
which is wanner than this one, still
live in the minds of many and the
belief in such legends carries with
it a decision to bury their money in
order that it may* be protected. The
sooner our people realize that the
banks of this country are a help and
"otection to the people, the better
ff will be those who have aceumu
:ted and deposited their accumula
ons with some reputable and stable
Banks are money makers for
those who have money. It is the
banks which keep the wheels of
progress moving and without the
banks, the country would soon be
come stagnated and all commercial
enterprise cease. Cooperation with
the banks by the public leads to in
creased business and builds the com
munity in which they are located.
No community can grow and pros
per without the concerted action of
all citizens and through the banks
and their agencies is the avenue for
progress and growth of all enterpris
If you have money saved or if
you come into possession of money,
do not hide it out, but deposit in
some substantia! bank where it v/ill
earn you interest and enable the
banker to loan it out to help some
one else earn money and increase
the commercial importance of your
town or city.
Th£ old way of keeping your mon
ey hid out is antiquated. It is not
business; it is aninvitation to the
burglar to visit your home and help
himself to your hard earnings. Why
not make your money safe by de
positing it in a bank?
EVOLUTION AGAIN. "
Bearing upon the question of evo
lution, which has been raised re
cently by some member of the state
Legislature, a paragraph by Dr.
Frank Crane presents another an
gle to the question. It seems that
Dr. Crane has been able to preserve
iis Christianity as well as his knowl
edge that evolution is taking place
n him and everything about him.
ie says in part:
“I used to think that the Creator
intended everybody in the world to
be entirely holy, and that somehow
we had all failed. I know now that
I was wrong. For if He made all
men to be holy He surely missed it,
and I do not believe He missed any
thing. He must have made us all to
do something which we are all doing
to a greater or less degree. And that
something is—to grow.
“Growth is the keyword htat un
locks the Universe. Growth is God’s
plan. God does not make anything
as a carpenter makes a bench. He
grows everything. When He wants
a tree He begins with an acorn. That
Ss all evolution means. It is that the
Creator grew His Universe “without
the sound of the hammer,” and He
did not erect it as workmen put up
“I have therefore got rid of that
gloom which comes from a constant
sense of failure and shortcoming.
There is no failure in my life. There
Ss a lot of imperfection. I have not
arrived. I never expect to arrive.
For, as Stevenson says, ‘The true
blessedness of man is not to arrive,
but to travel.’ And, as John Fiske
gays, ‘The essential characteristic of
man is his improvableness.’ ”

THE INDISPENSIBLE NEWS
All forms of advertising have
been used successfully by public ser
vice companies, but the one that has
proved indispensible is the nespap
per. irst of all it has circulation. A
single newspaper will often cover
from 60 to 0 per cent of the homes
in its territory. Advertising space
in that paper will give a much great

any other form of advertising on
which postage is spent.
Secondly, people are accustomed
to reading the newspaper. It is not
difficult to get their attention, as
in the case of the circular, the book

forms of advertising, but use them
