The big: bugbear in the way of , community development projects, is the difficulty of raising money for progressive enterprises. People hate the work of soliciting, and it is often impossible to get a force of canvassers who will cover a ciry thoroughly. At Elyria, Ohio, a city of 20,000 the Chamber of Comerce has shown how to do it, by raising $98,000 the past season for eomnrunity projects. Instead of sending solicitors to do the disagreeable work of calling from -door to door, they had the canvassing all done by telephone. Money can be had in a live town for public improvements with less effort than many people think. The success of such movements depends upon thorough publicity work. The News is willing at all times to boost public projects in our community, and has in the past given an enormous amount of free space for such work. It believes that many desirable enterprises could be carried throuch successfully here, by the kind of determination shown by the Ohio city named above.- WINNING A REPUTATION. Many young people who are start- , ing out in life consider that the most i is the size ot their pay envelope. 11 feel the job is no good. The thing which the beginner in business should consider of most vital importance, is winning a reputation as a trustworthy employe, a faithful worker, and one having ambition and initiative. The jobs that pay high at first, are apt to promise no advancement. They are apt to depend upon the abil ity to develop speed at some purely mechanical task. That speed can be acquired in a few months, and then the worker has gone as far as he can. It is almost impossible to perfect Ulm-nlf fm-tViof Qj-irl Vie hat no p-roind r for askmer advances in pay.

The world is looking for young people who will stick to their work, vh . will be loyal to their employer's, interest, who will put brains and enterprise into their work and constantly try to improve their results. If a young man or woman makes during j the first year of employment, a repu- tation along these lines, it does not make much- difference whether the pay has been satisfactory or not. ! That person is going to be marked j for promotion when the time comes , for some important vacancy to be j filled. Or if he desires to make a ! change to some other business, in-J quiries made in regard to his abilities and fidelity will bring favorable recommendations. .The business beginner's reputation, for character, industry, and go ahead qualities, is equivalent to a certain amount of capital, and is the only foundation on which a business success can be con- structed. Miss Ola S. Oatly entered Marion college Monday where she will take the regular four years' course and also a musical course. in he, on so j ' Chicago Man Haled Into Court When Wife Sees Blonde Across the Street. Chicago. In the interests of brevity, the moral of this tale is pushed up in front, thus: If a married man must have an affinity who craves soul kisses, whol-sale, he should not pick out one who livs right across the street from his wife. Long distance kisses and a beautiful blonde proved the undoing of Samuel Dorako, according to his wife's testimony before Judge Trude J in the court of domestic relations. "I might never have caught him at all If he hadn't picked out an affinity right across the street," said Suzanna, the wife. "I began to notice a blonde woman across the street, sitting in the window every evening waiting for some one. Finally I eaujrht her waving at him and then he would go up to her flat. She would also throw kisses to hi in as he came and went." "I'll back up her story." said Mrs. Elsie Megas, a neighbor. "We women have to stick by each other. I saw him throwing kisses to her in the mornings when he went to work." "Kisses long distance and otherwise belong to your wife," ruled the Judge. "Also, $8 a week toward her support." Wealth nd Happiness. Much of the anxiety and care of these days is needless and springs from an overemphasis of the amount of property needed for happlne. Everything in our country tends to stimulate men toward excessive ambition. Our climate Is rich in oxygen, and is an Irritant to work. The undeveloped resources of our land appeal to cupidity even at a time when we begin to realize that these treasures should be conserved for our descendants. The stories of successful men are exploited with endless variations in magazines that teach the art of getting on instead of getting up. Little by little young men feel that it is a -disgrace to live modestly. -Avarice is a virus t in the blood. Undue ambition is pois- oning the springs of contentment. Youth has forgotten Cervantes' warnings not "to fly too high toward the sun lest the flame consume the wings. Newell EKvight Ilillis-. How Many Presidents? Percentages intrigue our fancy. S?o vhen we read that "r per cent of our presidents have been college men" we wonder how many that was. Twenty-seven men have held the oliice, and n that basis 14.85 were college men. Hut Mr. Harding may be included and that would indicate that 15.4 were college men. The fractions grow worse; it looks as though someone were being insulted. There is a further possibility; some folks reckon (Jrover Cleveland as the twenty-second and the twenty-fourth president. This duality of Mr. Cleveland would make Mr. Harding the twenty-ninth President. It's a strange thing that in so important a matter, men cannot agree on how many presidents the country lii'.s bad. And when one comes to -fractional Presidents, th? task of the per-cenlage gasherer proves hopeless. Milwaukee Journal. Power in PqlraOil We have thought of palm oil in such peaceful connections as soap siock and massage creams, but had never associated it with those devil iKh stuffs, gasoline, benzol and the joyride. IJut oil is oil and chemistry plays trange tricks, and the time may be near when not only the fatty juice of the palm kernel, hut even the oil of j la e succulent peanut may sieed the j tijVv,.- i it i In- place of jiefroi. "May be near?" What do we say? That time is actually here, and today o!T in darkest Africa automobiles art being operated successfully and cheaply with their tanks filled with palm oil. And also in Belgium the same lluid is being used, in an experimental way, and is proving even more succes-ful than its first advocates imagined. New Orleans Times-Picayune. To Teach Hondurans to Fly.

"The Germans were like the chap who said in a sanctimonious tone one evening to his wife: " 'How happy I am this evening, dear! I have done three good deeds today. " 'What were. they?" said the wife. w 'On the way to business,' said 'I saw a young woman weeping a church step with a baby on her knee. I asked her what the trouble was and she said that she had walked seven miles to have her baby christened and now found that she had lost her money on the way. " 'I told her to cl.eer up, handed her a five-dollar bill and bade her have the child christened and bring me the change. She did so she did gratefully and thus, my dear, I did three good deeds. I performed, J first, an act or charity;- l started, second, a little child in the way it should go, and I got, third, fotir dol lars for a bad five-spot.' " SUNDAY SERVICES CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH.
