How can the government afford to
reduce the high cost of living wh^n
the Federal Reserve Banks are mak-
ing 100 per cent annually.
In some of the eastern cities mem-
bers of the Overall Clubs are trying
to reduce the high cost of living by
wearing overalls made to order and
decorated with buckles beautifully
set with diamonds and rubles.
standing in the street while he went
in to breakfast. When he returned he
had neither truck nor whiskey. Things
are coming to a pretty state of af-
fairs when a fellow has to go without
meals to guard his liquor.
In order that all things may pass
according to arrangements of a wise
providence, why not Carranza take up
his abode at Amerongen and be with
friends and sympathizers.
Congress • is a double barreled or-
ganization, in which the pork barrel
and the beer barrel have always been
held in high esteem, both barrels hav-
ing previously been cylinder bored.
But now comes the sad news that ev-
en 1A Congress the beer barrel is be-
ing slightly choked, discharging its
load within a very limited circle.
SAVING MONEY WITH
How One Hotel Keeper Reduced a Big
Item of Expense.
With the increased interest in farm-
ing and farm living from the efficien-
cy standpoint, there is a great ten-
dency on the part of the farmer to ask
whether a proposed improvement will
pay. Unquestionably most of the mod-
ern improvements offered to the farm
home do pay >in increased comfort o.
living and hence in increased ability
to produce profit bearing crops. And
the keen farmer of today realizes this.
But it Is also interesting to note th
some of the modem improvements do
pay directly through the dollars a:
cents savings they effect.
Take for instance the matter of the
electric vacuum sweeper. A certain
hotel keeper in a middle western state
found that the carpet, in the hotel re-
ception room, which had been cleaned
by hand sweeping and an occasional
beating, had to be removed every
three years. He installed vacuum
sweepers and found that his next e
pet lasted for seven years instead of
three. The reason was that ha-
sweeping removed merely the surface j
dirt and that the dust and fine grit
left in the web of the carpet and be-
neath it and ground into it by people
walking on it, had been slowly cutting
the carpet to pieces. When vacuum
$ weeping was installed, the shaking ,
effect of the sweeper brushes and th< j
suction of the fan drew all of this dirt (
and grit out, and left the carpet to
stand merely the much easier wear of i
walking. The hotel keeper found that,
this saving through making his car-
pets last twice as long more than paid
for the vacuum cleaning system.
And the same thing will appeal to
the farmer's wife. She knows that i
large amount of sand and grit is
brought into her house daily and that
any system which will help hei4 to
keep her carpets free of it will
well worth while. Fortunately, the
ectric sweeper is at her service today
through the development of thesmall
electric light and power plants for
farms. She's enjoying to the full the
comfort and convenience of electric
>light, and In electric power she's find-
ing a servant to do the washing, iron-
ing, separating, churning and pump-
ing as well as the sweeping.
It la all right to talk politics pro-
vided there are no weedp In your gar-
The only things that saves the race
from extinction according to the Dal-
las News, is the fact that women are
too busy after they are married to
warn the girls about to be married.
We refer that Editor to Edith John-
son on Tattling Married Women.
Now comes a statement that a wo-
man In Chicago sent her mother to
her husband's funeral while she her-
self was married to her second hus-
band. Who says women are not awake
to their rights in these modern days?
Over in Cleveland Ohio, a fellow
left his truck loaded with whiskey
Delco-Light costs no more

oil gives you four times as
much light when used for
fuel in Delco-Light as it
gives in coaloll lamps.
