STRAIGHT TALKS WiTH AUHT EMMY .ON "GOLD BONDS" *'Before I go to the bank to ask ad- vice about investing the money mother left me. I wish you would tell me something more about bonds." said Helen to Aunt Emmy. "Am I right tn thinking that gold bonds are absolute- ly safe? Are gold bonds what people mean by gih edge securities?" "'hat a child It Is!" laughed Aunt *mmy. "I can see that you do need to learn something about bands The term 'gold bond' does not have any- thing to do with the term "gilt edged security.' The latter is nothing more than a commonly used phrase that means a safe security. Companies that Issue gold bonds usually agree to redeem them In United States gold coin of the weight and fineness of the gold coin issued by the United States Treasury at the thne the bonds are put on [he market. This is done In order to protect the bondholders from the very remote possibility of a red Ical change tn the value of United States currency, such as, for example. the change-- in the values of German Rnd other ffuropcan ourrencies as a result of the wtr Y*qH]e .,tch a thing Is unlikely o occur In this country, financiers always try" to guard against every possible trouble ' Although s faonJ may be payable In gelid tt ls un- necessary to demand uayment tn actu- -lgotd coin since our American money ,Is on a gold basts anyhow and onr good old paper dollars have exactly Eae same value as golden dollars "But o vant to bear In mind one .-thing. Because you buy a so-called 'gold bond,' that does not mean that .-the bond ts secured by gold tn an way, err that {t is stronger than any other bond. The strength of a bond !lies simply and only In the ability the company that issues It to pay Its debts. And of course you should consider the value of the property pledged or mortgaged to secure the bond, if any property is given as se- l. rit7.  'Dear me. Aunt Emmy." exclaimed .Fieleu. "I never realized how much ,one needs to know before investing ,one's money. In my case it's awfully important not to have a loss. because although I have only a tiny amount of monet it Is all I have In the world. "How can I ever learn to tell what is Eoo from what is bad?" "! am not sure you ever can rely on sour own Judgment, my dear." smiled Aunt Emmy "but if you will be guided by your bank. you needn't worry."-- A. B. Aymes. ON GUARD AGAi,T - ' FARM CROOKS With every constructive movement for the improvement of agriculture, one is:likely to find men who will at- tempt to capitalize it for their own personal benefit. This may take the form of shipping in poor and unprofita- ble livestock to palm off on unsuspect- lmg farmers, or It may sometimes be selling fair to good livestock 9t exorbi- tant prices under promise of taking back some of the offsvring at high figures. There are several instances where the college of agriculture through Its county agent system has co-operated heading off the introduction of un- destruhte or extravagantly priced live- stock. In other instances the state bankers aesoclatlon, through its agri- cultural committee or the secretary's office, has set warnings to Its mere. her banlr relative to individuals or rms operating on an unsound basis. It is as important to head off nnde- atrable ad unprofitable lnveetments 8 it is to. encourage eonstrmttve and 1orfitable ones.Banker.Farmer. f BANKERS HELP The bans of Bedford county, Ten, messee, are furnishing pure bred eggs to all who will agree to return one Imllet for each fifteen eggs in the fail.

Don Quixote Heine, a later mglclan in laughter and tears, has narrated his own al- ternating attitudes toward Don Quix- ote. It was the first book he read after he had really learned to read; and he took the tale, he has told us, with the unshaken faith and serious- ness of childhood . he wept bitter tears over the ridicule and re- buffs of the noble-hearted knight. He re-read the book every five years or so with ever-varying feelings. As a youth he was, he confesses, bored by It. Later he saw in it only the comic side, and laughed at the follies of the mad knlghterrant. Older yet again and wiser he made friends for life with Quixote and Sancho. Afterward he had but to glance over his shoul- der to perceive attending him the l phantom forms of the thin knight and the fat squire--more particularly, he adds, when he himself hung irresolute at some parting of the ways. What Heine felt by turns, the world has felt by classeaTlmes Literary Supple- me.nt. Miracles of St. Leo.ard If there were such a personage, St. Leonard would certainly have been the patron saint of prisoners. He was originally a French nobleman at the court of Clovis I, and became a monk and founded a monastery which, after his death, about 599, was known as St. Leonard le Noblat. He was famed for his charity toward prisoners, and is r e - puted to have worked many miracles on their behalf. These miracles in re- leasing unhappy captives continued after his death, according to tradi- tion, which was very convenient, as hls festival happenel to be the first day of the Michaelmas term, when writs were made returnable.lamlly Herald.

The attention of all berry growers is called by District HorticuFcural Inspector E. D. Hunter to the state law which requires the inspection and certification of all berry fields before young plants from them can be sold. This is necessary in order to insure young plants which are free from insect pests and diseases. It is also necessary that each lot sold be ac- ccmpamed by an inspection tag which will be issued by the horticultural inspector. There is considerable demand this fall for strawberry plants and the Horticu|tural Office in the court house at Everett will maintain a list of those growers who have inspected plants for sale. Any o,e desiring to have an inspection made of thei' fields or wishing other irfformatior should communicate as son as possi- ble with the borticulaurol office. +++++++++++++++++ +, AT THE CHURCHES +4'+++++++++++++ 51ETHODIST EPISCOPAL Morrdng service at Ii o'clock.
