THE ROOT OF THEJTROUBLE
Chandler, Okla.. Dec. 22 1905.
J. W. AMBLER,
Dear Brother:—-Your letter dated
Dec. I, 05, at hand. You complain o(
not being able to meet your obligation!.
I do not wonder at your statement yet I
know there are few peaple who work
so hard and have so few luxuries as you
and yours. You know I have always
preached to you in brotherly way, " l'o
shun debt as you wohld Satan.' telling
you there were few who could keep up
with interest, for while you were asleep
it would work.
I am surprised that our statements do
not tear the mask from the word Interest
and expose it to plain view first interest
or usury is the greatest wrong that can
be perpetrated on an unsuspecting people
On Nov. I, 1885, you remember
father gave each of us $ I ,t>00, you re
member that 1 loaned my $ 1,000 at 2
per cent interest to T. W. Williams and
took a mortgage on 480 acres of bottom
land. I just had a settlement Nov. I,
1905 and figuring annual interest com-
pound at 10 per cent it amounted to $6.
727,53 you observe that $1,000 is as
good as new. 1 have avoided mxes by
leasing a box in the first national bank
and being dishonest enough to refuse to
list it for taxes.
You remember you bought farm
with your money. You had a home it
was assessed at $600,00 and you paid
4 per cent or $24,00 the first year.
This you have continued to do for 20
years$4.80. You have added $700.

as when bought and your buildings are
some what weather beaten your farm is
not worth as many dollars as when you
bought it except in twenty years your
market has been made better by more
consumers being near you. I low much
have you made ? For a few years you
made money but wh en the money in
circulation dropped to about ♦ 1600 per
capitl actual circulation you were load
ed up pretty well on stock and grain
and in order to meet some debts that you
contracted when money was more plen

a game in which the money manipulator
has had the advantage all the time, for
he can and does, set the price on your

safe for us in the aggregate will grease

It will deprive the banker of the pow
er to contract our circulation stop interest
and force the rich to take their chances
of risk by competing in industry.
It will force them to pay taxes with
the rest of us. Should they deal in
stock they must lose by death and acci-
dent as do the poor. Therefore I say
interest is our greates curse. Next to it
is special privileges. "Well," you will
say that would interfere with our insur-
ance companies; Yes, but suppose we
insure in a governmental company(pay
premium to United States) would it not
be safe, and would it not be patrotic?
and would it not do away with the need
of issuing bonds.?

The minister accepted his delicate
mission, and one morning, meeting
Mr. Jones on the street, he cordially
took his arm and walked along with
him. After some commonplace re-
marks he said: "My dear Mr. Jones,

this community, but I am sorry to say
that some of your best friends are
disturbed by stories they have heard
about your drinking."
"All idle tales," said Jones. "I do

Find Skeleton of Murderer.
While excavating a trench for
drainage in a road at Eastbourne
England, workmen came upon a cof-
fin containing a skeleton, the skull of
which was separated from the other
bones and lying between the shoul-
ders. It proved to be the skeleton of
a wife murderer, who was executed
240 years ago. The wife's body lies
in an adjacent church yard.
Ch.rography Was Puzzle.
Maivey Walters, an expert on pat-
iit case,, had occasion to write Rufuy
Choate on some important question
and when he received the reply was
unable lo read a word of it, so took
the missive to Mr. Choate and asked
blm wlia' he had written. Mr. Choate
replied: "I never can read my writ-
ins after the ink is dry, but If you will
lell me what it is about I will tell you
what I have written." And he did.

Human Hair Industry.
The human hair industry is a very
active one in France, the departments
most frequently visited by th« hair
merchants being those of Correze
Creuse, AlKer, Cher, Dordogne and

given for a full, long head of hair Is
from 2 shillings to 25 shillings for
the very best quality and color.
Regulated Price of Meat.
in ljH2, in England, butchers were
compelled by law to sell their beef
for a half penny a pound and mutton
for three farthings. The butchers of
London sold penny pieces of beef for
the relief of the poor, every piece twA

poun for a penny.
Thickness of Skin.
The skin of the men and women
of some nations is much thicker than
that of others, particularly in hot
countries. The Central African negro
has a skin about half as thick again
as that of a European. That of a ne-
gro is thickest over the head and
back—evidently to form a protection
from the sun.
