While the late Russell Sage was In

dent, shrewd and persistent money-
grubbers in Gotham. The aatute finan-
cier never plunged nor risked any
money In wild-cat achemes. He was
a "sure-shot" operator in Wall street, j
and when he died he left in the hands |
of hiB lone widow a fortune of some-
thing like $76,000,000. Since becom- |
Ing possessed of (his enormous for-
tune she haa worked as peraiatently
and assiduously in scattering the
money as her husband did tn gather-
ing it. The scriptures tell us that
the miser is the man that "heaps up
rlche8 and cannot tell who shall gath-
er them." Russell Sage knew better,
and the good lady upon whose shoul-
ders was imposed the burden of thla
enormous sum of money has worked
hard in lightening the burden. Her
philanthropies have been productive

TIDE FROM COUNTRY TO CITY
tsoret Is That Young Men and Wom-
an Ars Searching for Lacking
Amusement or Diversion.
To tbe Officers and Members of the
The secret of the constant tide from
the country to the city Is that the
young man and woman—often the
man and woman of. mature years is
on a search for that amusement or di-
version which is too often lacking on
The one way to counteract the ten-
dency— permanently—is to find on tbe
farm some substitute for the recrea-
tions that lure the man from the coun-
try to the city. Until this is done,
all the preachments in the world
about the "beauty of country life,"
and the "duty of the farmer to feed
the world," will not touch the prob-
In the city, the average country boy
or girl gets perhaps a dollar or two a
week more In actual money than he or
Bhe could earn on the farm.^ And this
difference is speedily eaten up in
board bills, in frivolous amusements,
and, too frequently. In dlssipatlona
that unfit the participant either for
toll or future usefulness. You hear
a great deal about tbe boy or girl who
goea from the country to the city
and makes a huge succesB. You hear
little or nothing about the incom-
parably larger number who go to the
city and either go through life seml^
failures or abaolute wrecks on the
shores of competition for which they
have not been fitted.
Recently I have been much Inter-
ested In the study of the reports of
vice commissions, issued by the va-
rious cities. In many cases they show
that the poor wages paid girls in de-
partment and other stores—and many
of these girls come direct from the
country or from small towns—are re-
cruited by the wages of a life of
shame. There is this feature to be
considered by the father or mother
who knows that the son or the daugh-
ter is listening to the lure of the city.
Amusements of a wholesome nature
can and should be provided in tbe
country. I do not say that on every
farm, or In every rural community, It
Is possible to even approximately du-
plicate the myriad llghtB. or the thea-
ters or the other resorts that g" to
make up the life of a metropolis. But
the monotony of farm life can be re-
lieved and the farm routine itaelf
given a new meaning by a little In-
genuity and perseverance. I regard
tbe Introduction of such amusements
as among the factors Indispensable to
tbe aolutlon of the so-called "rural
problem," about which so many people
vigorously preach. Let them turn
their efforts slightly In this direction.
The returns will be perceptible.

CERTIFICATES ARE OF VALUE
Cotton Stored in Bonded Warehouse,
Insured Agslnst Firs, Most
A bond is an Interest-bearing debt
certificate. Bonds have been Issued
usually in this country by government
In Ita different forms, by corporations
and by railroads. When railroads
first began to Issue bonds the Idea was
aa new as the suggestion that cotton
warehouse certificates be Issued now,
usable as security for money.
Cotton stored In a bonded ware-
house, Insured against fire. Is as food
security as there Is in the world. A
certificate representing It ought to be.
and is In fact, quite as valuable as a
railroad or any other kind of bond.
It la as much an evidence of wealth.
But rich men are able to bond their
properties, thus being able to obtain
money readily on favorable terms,
while the Idea that the aan.e use
should be made of cotton, for the

Alum baking powders are classed by physidans detri-

Many consumers use alum baking powders unaware.
They are allured to the danger by the cry of cheapness,

Cost of Tuberculosis and Other Pre-
ventable Diseases Has Been
Put Into Figures.
While state commissions and other
bodies are trying to find a method for
reducing the cost of life insurance.
Prof. James W. Glover of the Uni-
versity of Michigan demonstrates that
every policy-holder of a $10,000 or-
dinary whole life policy could save
about $20 a year on his premiums if
tuberculosis and typhoid fever were
eliminated. Tuberculosis alone causes
a loss to such a policy holder'of from
$16.70 at twenty to $17.50 at the age
of sixty. At age of twenty, wlA the
present high death rate from tubercu-
losis. this one disease alone shortens
the complete expectation of life by
two years and 15$ days. While the
death rate from tuberculosis seems to
be declining, the National Association
for the Study and Prevention of Tuber-
culosis says that the combined effort
of every man, urman and child Is nec-
essary to bring >;boi:t a radical reduc-
tion in life insurance rates such as
