But we- dp not think that the. majority of! the men'whb''w the past'have supported tha chamber of commerce and other worthwhile civic activities have been so frightened by events of the past month that they lire unwilling' to continue building for the future. : It is said that the night is always dftrkest' just before the dawn. That may be.true and then again it may not. Conditions may. be due for an early turn • for,'the better, and then again they may stay bad and then get worse. But they will always be bstter for who light to make them so than for those? who seek safety by crawling in their holes atid locking the door behind them.. Blytheville is still a going concern. Let's keep it going. Looking Ahead With a Smile ' .The ability to grin in the face of adversity is one of the most valuable and '' admirable : "of human qualities. Without it life:-would be a dreary affair, v. There were. .«• lot of grins on Main street yesterday, and many oC them were on the ;fa'ees of men whose available ca=h wits substantially lower than it \yas Saturday. They grinned be- d<rtft**WfC'y* f khe\v''tliat a broad -face is just as cheap as a long one and a lot mova comfortable, and for at least two other good/reasons. The first of is that they still had enough confidence in the bank which.locked its doors yesterday morning to feel pretty . hopeful of the salvaging of at least a sub-- stantial part of their deposits.. The • other, and maybe the more important,. is that dcspjlo the fact-that we devote the better part of our time to scrambling nftfv money.most of us know that it is not a thing to be cried over by any man whoso health and working abilities arc 'unimpaired. •'..Don't misunderstand. The closing of an institution such as the First National bank brings some very genuine trag- edies. .TMre will ba.'real suffering because of it, but it. wiU not vitally affect the great majority even-of those who tat or may lose by it, •Consider, if you please, the millions of people in this country whom uriein- ployimut, crop failures or the depression of farm prices 1ms left in actual destitution. These arc people—there are thousand!) of them, in thu county— who had no bank accounts to lose. Many of them have neither motuy nor credit, food, nor fuel, for the winter. Yet a few weeks ago, when an appeal for contributions in their behalf was made, those,, of us who will continue to live comfortably in spite of bank failures or other so-called calami- lieu, made a;pitifully weak and inadequate response. There is tranedy I'or you. As this is written there is a good possibility of a reorganization or a merger that will prevent any loss, except to the stockholders, through the 'closing of the First National. That is what everyone should -hope for and work for. Hut whatever the outcome may be it is worth remembering that the salvation oi each one of us and of the community in which we live depends, in so-called bad times even more than in good, on intelligent, persistent, constructive effort. Mississippi county has the resources to support its people. The thing to do, regardless of bank failures 'und business catastrophes, is to use them.

After the conquest of Canada he returned to England, where he remained for seven years, when, selling his commission, he emigrated to New' Vork: In "1175 he represented Duchess county in the first provincial convention, and in the same year was appointed by Congress brigadier general"in the Continental Army. In the expedition against Canada he captured successively Chambly, St.-Johns and Montreal. Soon after his promotion to major general he was killed in an attempt to storm Quebec.

Yet pins were once so scar.ce that none but the. wealthy could 'afford them. A box of "pins was the ne plus ultra of, wedding presents, as much admired as costly jewelry an.d -silverware. As pins became less expensive and in more common use, women were provided with a certain amount of . money to be devoted exclusively to -the purchase of pins. And so the expression "pin money," was originated. The phrase now has a much broader meaning and denotes any allowance to wife.or. daughters for personal and incidental expenses. Pin money now buys a thousand and one tilings clear to the hearts of womenfolk. The advertising columns are scanned eagerly by millions of women to see what is offered that comes within purse limits. They know that the advertisements enable them to-buy'wanted ; articles at reasonable cost. . . .Advertising also keeps them informed of the latest news in the world of fashion. It tells what. Paris is wearing in dresses, hats, hosiery and'.footwear. It pic- . tu'res gowns for evening, afte'rnoon and street wear, ;',:. as well as simple little house frocks that are charming in their simplicity. Advertising introduces improved household utensils, new foods, automobiles in gay colors—in short, everything that the heart of woman : could desire. . And that is why women are such careful readers of advertising. It enables them to make their pin money buy more and last longer. It helps them keep expenses within the household budget. Every one should read advertisements. It is one of the simplest habits to cul • . tivate, and pays dividends in savings and persona.) comforts.
