NOTICE TO PATRONS.
The baby son of a very rich and
highly educated man and a refined
gentle woman was kidnapped by a
band of Mexican outlaws. For years
the child was held in captivity with-
out knowing anything of his mother
The people among whom he was
raised had no education. They knew
nothing of modern ways of living.
They were rough and uncouth. They
dug in the dirt with sticks to cultivate
the ground. They knew nothing of
trains or street cars or telephones, or
automobiles or farm tractors
planters or oil machinery.
And the boy was like them at 27
, ears of age. Civilization had passed
him by after he was taken from his
home in the midst of learning and
.ulture fo the home of these ignorant
savages, away from enlightened mod-
Of course he had inherited from
generation after generation of civ-
ilized ancestors a better brain than
the brains of his ignorant captors
and when he was discovered and re-
turned to his people, he made rapid
progress? but he made progress only
by keeping in constant touch with the
civilized people of his time.
There is a lesson in this poor boy's
experience for every one of us. We
can't fail to keep in touch with im-
provements and still get the benefit I ^
of improved conditions. I '•*
If any family will shut themselves
up and shut the rest of the world
out, they will not keep up with civili-
zation. We can all learn things from
our neighbors, from magazines, and
newspapers. We can read of the ex-
periments that have been made in the
past and the conlusions that have been
If we are to be as successful as
our fathers, we must have the benefit
of all our fathers knew and of all
that has been learned since. We must

conditions as they were equipped to
meet the conditions of their time.
It is a fine thing to revere the
memory of our forefathers, but we
must remember that they were lead-
