Banking is becoming more and more a public service instead of ,~ private snap, and bankers are becom- ing trusted leaders in public affairs The day of mere money landing arm note-shaving are a thing of the past and the banker Is becoming a fae|oc in all commercial undertakings. Be- cause the principles of business and responsibility to stockholders are no~ employed In politics, bankers as a rule are not lured that way. But when it comes to pr0/noting commun- " ity enterprises, founding new indus- tries based upon the products of the soil, banks are progressive "As a result of all of this. banks have become very public in their busiriess." states E. G. Craw~ord, vice president of the Exchange National bank of Portland. "It was formerly the case that bankers as a rule re- ceived deposits and paid checks and made loans largely with the idea o! interest returns Now. if a banks] realizes his responsibilities he must not only receive deposits and loan money and earn profits but he must take an active and lively interest and become foremost in seeing that enter- prises of various kinds in his dis- trict become profitable. Sometimes when he believes thoroughly ;n it he must lend and carry the loans with the idea of being constructive and making the city in general more prosperous through the success af some .eommerclal enterprise." THE WORLD A STAGE. "All the world's a stage," said a very well known writer anumber of generations ago, and the play Just now this peer of all writers would have described as "pregnant with big things.' Continents. not countries, have set the stage, and the scene has shifted as rapidly as the modern cin- ema. A few years ago the eyes of civilization witnessed a great strug- gle in Africa; then came Europe in a fearful spectacle of blood and fire; Asia now holds our gaze, with India and its millions approaching revolt, the myriads of China rousing from their dormancy, the empire of Siberia with its unstable government and the crafty Japanese shuffling her chess pieces in the game for the control of the Far East. ] Then entering into and complicat-[ ljg the plot of the great play are theI problems~ of the world war and theI reestablishing of governments and territories in Europe. Just now in- terest is added to the scene by the possible settlement of the Irish ques- tion, which has been a nightmare of the world for more than a lifetime. Then the present arms conference in W'hshington. fruitful for the peace of the world, adds the hope that the plot will turn to a happy ending. But, however the play may end, the present generation has before it today the greatest spectacle of the ages. A tremendous play, but as real and as earnest as life. Everyday ad- Jectives are inadequate to describe its magnitude.--Garfield Enterprise. LET ALL PAY TAXES. While discussing, taxation ques- Uons it would be well to remember that a change in our laws, making taxable new issues of city, county, Brats and government bonds, would automatically put billions of future wealth on the tax rolls which now and in the future will escape all forms.of taxation under our present laws. Further, ~nless this chartge Is made. capital will steadily be with- drawn from productive enterprise, double and treble taxation will be haeped on property and industry to' make up loss.of revenue from capital invested in these non-productive, tax exempt securities. THE ART OF WORKING. A man is quoted as saying in speech in Seattle the other day: "You can't get rich by working. You've got to do it by working 9there." Doubtless many fortunes have been piled up by cunning and intriguL and it is reasonably certain that the man who works and saves but a dollar a day will not accumulate a million dollars much short of a million dayF. However. there is no particular rea- son why a man should work for small wages a~d save but ~little lu this age of the world, unless, iudeed, ha has failed to qualify himself to do well paid work. Our understanding has always been that there is no citi- zen in this country whose services :,re more in demand than the $100.- 000 man, and it is a well known fact that highly capable men have no trouble to get capital whenever they want it. Many men who have large Incomes and. are growing rich act- ually earn all they get. They perform services worth their compensation. Many men are getting well to do and not a few are growing rich. The number who are accumulating for- tunes by remaining idle Is extrJetnely limited, and we believe that a large )roportion of our prosperous citizens are getting ahead by means which are above reproach and are in no way at variance with the best interests of society.--Yakima Republic. LUMBER INDUSTRY BENEFITS. Freight.rate reductions on western lumber from all terminals to points east of Chicago have been announced by western railroads. Inability of western roads to secure concurrence of lines east of Chicago to this gen- eral reduction is reason which has been given for this delayed relief for the northwest and Pacific lumber in- dustry. The lumbermen have realized the serious position of the ~allroads with their topheavy whrtlme heritage ~f artificial overhead but that did not help the situation for either par- ty. In order to nteet Panama canal competition which has been increas- i~g enormously and to enable west- ern lumber to again compete ~ east-' ern territory with southern plne, is the reason given for thls ~tte reduc- tion for lumber. This is what lumbermen have been contending for and it is to be hoped that this move will enable the lumber lndusti'y as a whole to resume normal activity with resulting employment to thousands of additional men and Increasing rail shipments Into terri- tory which has been practically closed to coast mills. Lumbering and railroads ar~ the wd~t% tie greatest employing Janus- tries and prosperity for them will mean increased prosperity right down the line from workman to Capitalist. -Z The Jap~,nese st the Washington conference allow it to be known that they will require the Urdt, ed States to ahandon Pacific island fortifica- tions and in turn will give up forti- fications on islends nearby the Jap- anesi~ coast. The details of the sug- gestion are so inconsistent with or- dinary rationality as to ~lndicate that the Japanese are amusing themselves between sessions with a li.ttle non- sense. America is asked to destroy the fortifications of Hawaii and not to put any in any Aleutian harbor, to leave Guam and the Midway island unfortified and to remove the forth- fications from the Philippines. Then Jap~in will take down som~ negligible works on islands which are not re- quired in the Japanese scheme of de- fense. If the Japanese make this proposal seriously to the conferlence we shall doubt their serious partici- pation in it and shall conclude that they are turning in their hat checks to go home. Chicago Tribune. What It Costs To Grow. Every time the United States gains a million inhabitants, the public util- ities have to raise through the sale of securities 700,000,000 hard dol- lars to be-sl~ent in extending plants to "serve the additional customers cre- ated by that increase in demand. Chairman Calder of tile Senate Com- mittee ~on reconstruetlofi and pro- duction made this estimate tn a re- cent publication by the committee. Because the normal development was seriously curtailed by war, util- ity companies will ha~e to put $2,- 000,000,000 instead of $700,000.000 into their business to pay for new construction now required. This vast sum of money can be obtained only through maintenance of adequate rates such as will insure a fa~ in- terest return to thrifty invektors, otherwise their money would go to other industries. Offers Tractor Short Course. High School boys finishing their course Christmas who wish to enter the agricultural course at the State college of WashingtOn may take the short course in gas engines and trac- tors which begins January 2 and re- ceive college credit for it. They thus put the month of January to good ac- count which otherwise would be lost, as the second semester does not open till February 6. Wife Has Equal Rights. According to the theory of Idaho law, husband and wife have equal rights in their common property, says a paper by Professor A. E, Evans in the Harvard Law Review. Differ- ences between this theory, and the theory of ownership in California,' Washington and Tbxa~ are discussed. In Idaho each has a legal title to that of the other, without reference to which holds the record title. County Roads Ineligible, Many counties are seeking federal aid for purely county roads and state highway officials believe many people do not understand the restrictions placed on federal moneys by Cou- gress. Under the new law only 7 per cent of the state's total mileage can go i-nto a federaI aid system and this must be divided into primary or in- terstate highways, and secondary or connecting inter-county roads. The whole road system which is to receive federal aid must be approved by the United States bureau of roads, through the secretary of agriculture, before funds are made available for any project. All work must be done by the state highway ,department. Washington'S road system already has been submitted for approval. The highway division says as far as pos- sible federal aid moneys wlll be dis- tributed throughout the state, though as It is nearly finished the Pacific highway will probably be the first road paved for its eutire length. Whenever federal money is applied to the building of a state road it re? leases just that. much of state funds for construction elsewhere. Clean Movies for Children. What does your child see in the moving pictures? Do you know that it is clean and wholesome, without any dangerous influence on the mor- als? "The parent who .is indifferent to the character of the movies seen by his children is tnvltlng trouble for them in after life." says President N. L. Hines of the Indiana State nor- mal schools, who Is urgl.ng a move- ment to put motion pictures into the schools, Dr. F, F. Nalder. director of the general college o~tenslon at W. S. C. has three classes of films to offer schools in this state: Nearly 200 reels 'of flhn on travel, industrial, patriotic and welfare work sent for service charges only, just enough to cover handling; some 150 reels of the best dramatic, scientific, travel, sports and comedy ,fihns, including master- pieces of English classics, sent for a nominal rental per day, and films prepared by the Society for Visual Education to correlate with textbook instruction, vitalizing history, civics, heatlh and sanitation, mathematics, physics and geography. There is a daily rental for these last also. Girls Save Eighty-Three Dollars. Clothing that would cost $244.35, at the lowest'estlmate, if bought ready made in stores, was roads at a cost of only $162.35 by. the girls in. the course of clothing, home ecbno~- ice 30. this semester at the State col- lege of Washington thereby saving $84. The course, whie[a is to be con- tinued next term. was a new one giv- en this year for the benefit of these girls, who, though specializing in other things, as chemistry, education or language, wished to learn how to economize by making their own clothing. The statistics of cost given above covered 60 garment~ completed. Others not yet finished, and much renovating, mending and many dress accessories were not included in the estimates. They would have. brought the saving up to even a higher figure. 6ping Home for Christmas. Many University of Idaho students are planning to spend the Christmas holidays at home. A fare and a half "for the round trip will be provided by all railroads. A special train to Poca- tello, connecting with trains on all branch lines and on the Pocatello- Butte line. will be run by the O.-W.

GLEISER The wonderful success of Dr. Dar-I rin. the "well known specialist, who] is now visiting Colfax, which enables] him to,cure apparently hopeless in-1 valids when doctors, drugs and "allI other means have failed, has aroused~ i widespread wonder and comment in all circles, physicians and scientists being as much in the dark as those out of the medical profession. Various attempts to discover this man's professional secrets have failed, sinec he has refused to disclose the source of his apparently marvelous control over disease and to oftimes stay the clutch of death. Yet the proven facts and the evidence show that in hundreds of instances when patients have been pronounced hope- lessly incurable and given up to death by doctors, Dr. Darrin has restored them to health so easily and quickly that it borders closely upon the mi- raculous or divine.. These cures are the most strange a~d startling since it is known that he has discarded many of the useless drugs prescribed by physicians and accomplishes these marvels by a different and more suc- cessful method of treatment. During a recent interview Dr. Darrin firmly, but courteously de- clined to discuss the secret of the power of the remedies he uses. but finally was induced to speak as fol- lows : "Cases come to me from all over] the country that have baffled somei of the best physicians and special-[ ] lets, where one doctor has. said the trouble was one thing and the next something else, until the patients were at a loss to know what disease they were really suffering from. Is it any wonder that sufferers fail to get well when they are not only treated for the wrong disease, but also given useles medicines on the hlt-or-mt~ plan? But I am able to make a correct and careful diagnosis of each case that comes to me, and seeing the cause, apply the treat- ment to cure." "But what about those that may take some time to cure. and you are not going to reniain in Colfax long?" "It does not make the slightest difference, I cure them in their own homes, wherever they are, easily and just as surely as if I lived there. Distance does not make and differ- ence. so to speak, as I keep in con- sta.nt touch with every patient by correspondence until they are cured as. each case has my permanent Se- attle address so-they can always quickly communicate, with me. All that anyone who is Ill in any wav from any cause, and may be suffer- ing from the stealthy but dreading encroachments of catarrh, whose heads are being eaten out. whose hearing is affected, whose throat and bronchialare inflamed, whose lungs are threatened, whose stomach and bowels are out of order, and those having trouble with liver, kidneys, bladder or other organs that have been invaded by disease, men women suffering from weaknesses and ailviients peculiar to their sex, to all whose nerves and joints throb with neuralgia and rheumatic ag- onies, or whose skin is disfigured with disease, is to lose no time in caling on me, as I will only remain in Colfax until December 22, and this may be my last visit here for some time to come. "I offer not only free consultation and advice at my offices in the Hotel Colfax. but of every case-that comes to me I will make a careful exami- nation and diagnosis without charge. No ailing person should neglect this opportunity to get an experts opinion about their trouble whether they treat With me or not." THIS EXPERT SPECIALIST WILL REMAIN IN COLFAX UNTIL DE- CEMBER 22 AND CAN BE CONSULTED FREE AT THE HOTEL COLFAX.
