The most nliserable person in the world is the one that. is never able to escape fronl himself. Let others ;~rgue whether one is one's best friend or one's great enemy; one thing is :rare, one is one's greatest bore. The trouble wllh the egotist is "l.l:al 13.o is forever lhinklng of him- ment operation. Hundreds of affida- vits of elnployes are declared to be on file in which men under oath de- claire Tha! they were required to exe- cute orders that. bolckaded transpor- taxi,m, retarded shipping and de- ~troyed material. |f to such treason- able action a persistent campaign of Hnen(lillg nlisrel)resentation is IIO~V being added, patriotic public senti-I men[ should revolt.~Bible Class [ i Monthly. ~_ 1 NOBODY m ES YOVR TIME 1 Nobody pays you for putting in so much time. Your time isn't wor~ anything to anybody. It's only what you do that counts and that anybody will pay for. A man might punch the 'jnd stay inside the works for eight, ten err welve hours, yet have not earned a dollar. Another man might be inside the plant only a few hours and have earned a good day's pay. Haven't we become too accustomed to thinking of our work ill terms of so many hours, of so milch time, in- stead of thinking of it in terms of outpnt, of production, of what we self.

The pleasure we get from the beauty of nature is that ily means of iI we'cz(n go out fronl ourselves, and: mingle with the larger universe. Who has not known the joy of this escape? Sonletin}es when our inner lhoughis are black, when the puzzles of life drive us to despair, when the devils of morbidity overtake us. if we can grasp the gh/ry of a golden sunset, the majesty of mountains, the wide peace of valleys, the mothering catnl of 3 summer (lay, the joy of young spring or the brisk chal- ienge of snow covered fields in win- ler, we can get away from our hated selves and taste the delicious med- icine of happiness. The blue bird of happiness is out- side, "Look out, not in," was the terse maxim of Edward Everett Hale. It is also well to look up, not down. After all, the nfinistry or culture and of education is to provide the soul' with avenues of escape. When we listen to a concert and Rnow enough to appreciate the beauty of music, we have escape(, again. When we read a skillful tale, when we l)lay a galne, when vfe lose ourselves In work; in all these ways we are simp- ly slipping ou~ of our l)rison and en- joying the outdoors of ourself. And this is at the bottom of that colnlnand of rell'~ion which tells us to live for other~. It Is based upon the psychological truth that In pro- portion qs the spirit of man goes out of himself and finds its true blessed- ross. As a matter of fact, no man find~ himself until he gets away from himself.---Post Intelligencer. GOVERNMENT AND RAILROADS. The claim thai under government operafion the railroads of the coun- try suffered neglect and serious prop- erly deterioration has been so repeat- edly and strongly urged that common loyalty to the government wnuhl seem to require the public press to give publicity to the actual facts. Official fgures of the interstate com- merce commission show that during ! the 26 months of government control] more money was spent, on the rec-1 ! ommendation and under the direc- : / tion of the sam(. railroad managersI ~ho were in charge of the propertiesl under private control, for mainte- nance of equipment and'for mainte- nance of way and structure than ever before had been spent for these pur- p~,,~es in the same permd of time. In 1917, for example, under pri- vate control $690.009,000 was ex- pended for maintenance or equip- meat! in 1918. under federal con- trol. $11,000,000, an increase of 60, per cent; in 1919. under federal con- trol. $1,215,000,000, an increase ~f nearly 80 per cent. Again, in 1917, the raih'oads spent $445.000,000 to keep tracks an~'l bridges in repair. In 1918 the gov- ernment spent $656,000,000. an in-i crease of about 45 per cent, and to 1919. $772,000,000. an lnc.rcase of 70 per cent. The actual t:acrs as re- vealed by the recoras or thc Inter- state commerce con)mission seem to they seem to take lots of time off. P;ut (.orporations or other employers! never measure the value of a high ,.',alaried man simply by the number! ..of hours he works, Be is judged: solely by the value of what he ac-i colnl)lishe~, One nlan ill all execu- ' tire position might work 12 hours: a day and yet ilot be worth $2,0001 a year. while another man might: be on the spot only half as many hirers and yet he worth $20,000 a ~ear Incidentally. most men hold- ing responsible positions devote a grea| deal of thought to their busi- ness while the)" are away from their duties. Personally I have found that there is more salisfaction in being judged and paid hy results than by the hour or the da5 .... that is---simply by time. The wise. willing, ambitious worker will slrive to do so much work and do it so well that he will sooner or later be pronmted to a position where his pay will be governed not so much by the hour. but by the worth of the service he renders. This thought that your time Is not worth a nickel to anyone Is a heipful one to keep always in mind. Don't try merely to put in the day. Strive with all the energy and vigor yell possess to put something into tile day.--Alton News Letter. :x- h JOB FOR EVERY DOLLAR. The greatest asset of a nation is the morale of its people, and the greatest influence in keeping up mor- ale is financial independence. Until one has removed his financial shac- kles and has a little money to the ~o(id, he cannot rise to the full ad- vantages of a citizen. He lacks con- fidenee to accel)t responsibility. He lacks courage to plan for the future. fie lacks means to take advantage ,if Ol)portunity. A little money saved from honest, work and invested suc- cessfully is one of the essentials of complete citizenship. I Getting ahead is not a matter of/ chance or good luck with most of/ us, but a matter of industry and good management. Standards of living will differ with diffirent people.Corn-~ forts and pleasures of life and the i, cultivation of talents will vary with~: different individuals. The amount i that can be saved for the future wllll depend principally with the oppor-' lunity and inclination to earn, but one fact is universal, that no man can get ahead unless he spends les~ than he earns, and use tile margin intelligently. It has been rightly said that to make $10 and to spend $9 means success; to make $10 and spend $11 means ruin. Which way are you headed. The first step towards financial se.ccess is o job. The next steo is to save something from the job, and to fnd a job for what you save. There is a job for every dollar. How suc-i cessful a dollar may be at its job de-i pends upon how good a job is selee-', led for it. i It is with the object of developing i and maintaining the practice of uni-! versai saving of money and of put- ting the people,s dollars to work at l successful job that the United be that the government was forced Slates Government through the Post l to spend hundreds'of millions ~f dol-I Office del)artnlent is offering the peo- lars to rehabilitate deteriorated rail-i pie Postal Savings for tile deposit of road property in order to put It Intotiheir money and United States Treas- condition to mect the exigencies ffiury Savings Securities for invest- the war. 1 nlents.

[ / Telephone exchan,~es (,n p,er ula- nero lines in France numbered 273, and those in advance sections 123, besides small temporary iield instal- lations. AI)out 1,6004)00 long distance tel- ephone calls were handled by the signal corps, together with local tele- phone calls estimated at 47,000,000. The organization of this system re- quired the servicas of a veritable army of telephone experts, the Bell system alone having contributed 11,- 299 employes who served overseas. Girl telephone operators of the sys- tem to the number of 233 went to France in the uniform of the signal corps. So completely organized was the system of telephone communications that it has been said that if he ha~ desired to do so, General Pershing could have taken up his telephone at headquarters in Chamnont and called up any second lieutenant, sitting at the end of any wire in an advanced post, anywhere along the entire se,:- tor occupied hy the American forces. ..........................

He has looked further into the mysteries of life, and penetrated deeper into tre secrets of disease, than any other physician or surgeon ever in this community is evinced by the many remarkable cures he has made. Thou Today he is doing for suffering hu- manity all th'at medical skill and science can do.

SHOULD NOT BE NEG- [ i LECTYJ) [Be Warned Today~-for Tomorrow May Be Too Late. "A great rdany people have heart (liscase and don't know it," says Dr. Darrin. There are a great many others who do not know they have weak hearts but because they are not seriously sick, give it but little attention. "There are still others who have every reason to know that their hearts are affected, but for some un- accountable reason will not acknowl- edge it. "Such persons are ..eopardizlng their very existence---they are tak- ing great risks. "Every case of heart disease is ctremly dangerous. Life insurance Dr. l)arin says: "ktdney and blad- der diseases are more prevalent than most people suppose. The symptoms are so numerous and dIffirent that thousands suffer and do not discover! the real cause of their trobe until they are in the fatal grip of Brights disease or diabetis. "The warning of kidney troubles is backache aching pain over the hips, swollen ankles, sediment or de- posit in the" urine, which may be bloody, or highly colored or milky white, frequent desire to pass scan- ty urine, voracious appeHte, thirst.I mouth dry, tongue furred and swol-~ len, weakness and "wast:rig of flesh.; skin pale, waxy or dry, bad odor o~" perspiration and puffiness under the! eyes. 1 companies recognize this and abso- lutely refuse to take a risk on a per-I son with a weak heart, t "When the pulse is irregular, tooi fast, too slow, or skips a beat; and there is shortness of breath after ex- ercise, hot flushes, faint or hungry spells, palpation, flutterings, dizzy, fainting or smothering spells; pain in the region of the heart, in side or in shoulder and experience difficulty in lying on the left side, It is a sure sign that the heart is affected and a physician should by all means be consulted." A person does not have to have all the symptoms described, but any one or two of them are sufficient as the real cause of their Irouble until be examined by a competent spec- ialist. Dr. Darrin has for many ,years given special attention to the treat- ment of heart disease, and will give a free examinati6n and opinion on an case that may call upon him dur- ing his visit to Colfax on December 12 to 22 at the hotel Colfax. Heart troubles are not necessarily incurable. All cases can be greatly benefited by treatment and in mo~t instances a complete cure can be ef- foeted. "Advice and treatment should not lie neglected by those having any of the above symptoms which can be easily cured, otherwise wilI result In a fatal malady. i ; "I have for years," stated Dr. Dar-I rin.
