A great republican daily says,
says, “the government is now carry-
ing 200,000 men on the pay roll
whose services could be dispensed
with. This costs us $1,000,000 a day,
which means $866,000,000 a year.
This big republican daily newspaper
makes this public acknowledgement
of this great waste of the taxpay-
ers’ money. Why, we wonder, has
this continued evgr since Harding
was elected, and why should it not
end at once? Echo answers, Why?
Politics not only make queer bed-
fellows, but it does lots of funny
things. If you just think of it, it is
a crime to put material interests
above rights and comforts of hu-
manity. The life is more than meat
and the body more than raiment, for
the Good Book tells us so. All polit-
ical policies should look to the good
of humanity, no matter what becomes
of private interests.
VISITOR FROM CALIFORNIA
Dr. R. H. Dunnigton, of Whittier,
California, arrived last Thursday to
visit friends and relatives here.
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Sporn are en-
joying a visit from their daughter,
Mrs. Edith Ragan and baby of Kiowa.
THAT OLD GIRL OF MINE
I had a girl of comely face,
With vim I entered in the race
And stepped her out most ev’ry place
And bought her a ring.
She was the wonder of the age,
Her clothes were of the latest rage;
What if it DID take all my wage
To buy her that ring!
We said we’d rent a cozy flat,
A home—a place to hang our hat,
All furnished up with this and that—
(And she flashed her ring).
It’s years ago since that was said.
For some small cause, we didn’t wed;
She left one day and cut me dead.
And she wore my ring.
Some day I’ll go and search the land,
I’ll find my dear old sweetheart and
I’ll coo and hold her little hand,
And swipe back my ring!
A Fountain Pen and
A Piece Of Paper
Speaking of age, or the lack of it,
the public press tells us that Saro,
who lives in Constantinople, is 146
years old, and has just married his
fourth wife, and that she’s a young
woman. The story goes that Saro at
111 years became a factory hand,
and is still at the job. He is said to
have worked 90 years as a porter. He ^
certainly should know by now how to g
take orders from his young wife. He j|
may have gotten a young wife, but
what did she get?
Astronomers claim that people ac-
tually live on the moon. And some
country editor is inquisitive enough
to ask if they stay out all night?
Suppose you lived at the North Pole?
Where the unwise “sport a bill
roll" the wise “flourish a foun-
tain pen 1” That’s merely the dif-
ference between the man who
pays in actual currency and the
man who pays by actual check.
One laborously counts out cash
and waits for his change; the
other writes the exact amount on
a piece of paper and hands it to
The pay-cash-man must wait for
a receipt to be written; for the
other the cancelled check is a re-

It’s a convenience worth having.
