Thousands of persons today are try-
ing to do a minimum amount of work
for a maximum amount of coinpensa
tion. This tendency provides a greut
opportunity for the man who is eager
to work. Any man who is willing to
give freely of his time, thought und
energy may advance far beyond the
uverage in his profession. The aver-
ugo man quits when his day is done;
ho dislikes isxtrn hours; ho has no sug-
gestions to make for the improvement
of his profession; he guards carefully
his energy, uevor spending enough to
tinuko him Urod. Against this man con-
trast the worker who is over eager and
willing so long as there is work to be
done, who gives more than he is ex-
pected to give, who, on his own time,
studios the business to devise schemes
for its betterment; who throws irresis-
tible, tireless energy into his action,
so that every deed has a kick and a
punch. Add to these qualities the abil-
ity to be cheerful under adverse condi-
tions, to remain calm during stress and
strain, and to see in his subordinates

IB SANITY RETURNING?
In one of our large cities there is
a manufacturer who employs numerous
traveling men who penetrate every
nook and corner of tho country. Those
men are instructed, in addition to the
sale of goods, to keep their fingers
constantly upon the pulse of the people
and report to the home office.
This manufacturer is firmly of the
opinion that tho country has about re

cial and financial insanity and is on

Tho public has ceased to buy with
such extravagant abandon, confining
itself to tho purchase of such articles
as aro legitimately required.

As a result of the favorable grow-
ing weather which prevailed during
the month of July, the Government
Crop Forecast on August 1st, showed
a condition of general excellence for
practically all of our major crops.
While the bounteous yields thus indi-
cated may not bo entirely realized, as
the conditions prevailing during the
present month will probably prove de-
termining factors, the outlook never-
theless is very promising. I sually
weather conditions and insect ravages
are most troublesome during the month
At the present time there is every
indication that we shall have avail
able about 250,000,000 bushels of wheat
for export purposes. The indicated
yield of winter wheat on August 1st j
was placed at 533.000.000 bushels.
Spring wheat promised a yield of
263,000,000 bushels—the total there-
fore, would probably run close to 795,-
000.000 bushels. The carry-over from
last year ia placed at from 100,000,000
to 125,000,000 bushels, making a to-
tal of over 900.000,000 bnshels avail-
able for domestic and export require-
ments. Domestic needs, including
seeding, will probnblv run not over
650.000. 000 bushels, thus leaving about
250.000. 000 for export purposes.
The eats crop on August 1 indicated
a vield of about 1,400,000,000 bushels,
which compares with the 1919 harvest
ot 1.248,310,000 bushels, and that of
1918 of 1.538,000,0(84.000 bushels. Th#
indicated yield while somewhat below,
the average of the war period, is well,
above tho ton-year average.
