And soon our necessity fol ment. finds that not only have farm- i told. d's been put to considerable cost to more food will drive us to do some clean up after cvmpers and picnicers, inventing along that line. The Mid Season Sale of Men's and Young Men's i eayjier we do it the better off we will be, and our children, too. So let's keep our minus open to suggestions, advice and theories. Out of these the solution will come, 1 ruling horses out to pasture and bringing the cows in when the sun began to set. And, oh thousands of things that all regular kids do. "Well, now I have enjoyed this past week, but still I'd pay a handsome price for a vacation that would bring as much fun as a few of those days of my childhood." "But," continued our friend the business man, "there are many things in this old world that money cannot buy." ctiic lUuuunt izmiutrrr "A Good Paper in a Good Town" Every Thursday by IUE ENQUIRER PUBLISHING CO.

Some people have little scruples in taking possesions of a cool, inviting woods without the courtesy of first gaining permission from the owner. They spread their lunch and enjoy it, but defile the grounds by leaving remnants of food, melon rinds, papers, tin cans, etc. Often they start fires under trees that kill the lower branches, "register" by carving their names and initials in the bark, and occasionally leave camp fires to spread and cause serious property loss. Deam says that most farmers do not object to the right kind of picnicers in their woods, but rightfully resent visits of depredators. "Remember" says Deam, "that this woods is someone's private property the same as your home and grounds in the city. The least one can possibly do is to ask permission to enter. Courtesy goes a long way, and then too, if damage accidentally is done, have enough principle to pay for it. Don't evade your responsibilities. The right kind of people can make the woods open for all, while irresponsible cues may easily bar nature's playgrounds to ail but the owners." BUSINESS VERSUS PLEASURE. Ambng our pleasures and excitements as American people is what is called "Politics." There are elements of sport, gambling, speculation and all the chances and ups and downs of a lotterv or horse race. Men's and young men's suits, with two pairs of pants, worth up to $25 For $17.45 Men's and young men's suits, real values at $30.00 For $24.75 PLEASURE AND HAPPINESS. A writer in an -eastern majrazino voices an old truth, well worth repeating-, when he says that the most fallacious of ail fallacies is believing that the pursuit of pleasure leads to happiness. Most of the unhappi-r.e-ss that exists in the world is owing to the fact that multitudes of persons think they are seeking happiness when all they are seeking is pleasure. The man who finds his keenest and highest enjoyment in his recreations is unlikely to be really happy. A man's happiness depends on the degree of satisfaction and enjoyment that he gvts out of his work. If he has plenty of work to do, of a sort that is congenial to him and constructive, that reOiUires the exercise of his higher faculties, that provides him with a Reasonable return and that is constantly helping to develop his powers, he has the first essential to happiness. Joyful events, individual tiiumphs or successes, may irradiate his happiness from time to time, 'sorrows mav shadow it. THRIFT IN rUBLIC EDUCATION. The recent , session of the National Education Association at Washington, D. C, emphasized the importance o f thrift, teaching economy i n school administration and introduction of universal saving systems. Arthur H. Chamberlain, chairman of the National Committee on Thrift Education, advocates courses of study on these lines in the school systems of our Country. , General introduction of school saving -nepoit systems, with millions of small depositors drawmglnterest, are to be introduced in the common schools and colleges. Degressive banking houses are taking up this matter on practical lines to counteract the tendency of children learning to spend money before they have acquired earning ability. The morality and stability of character, to say nothing about individual honesty and saving habit, of the child can be conserved by such systems for the welfare and prosperity of the individual, the family and our country. MAKE $4 AN HOUR. Farmers are busy this time of the year. And yet nobody is ever too busy to make more money. If you are wasting tinve on a fifteen cent an hour job when you might be making ?4 an hour you are not busy, you are merely fussing with trivial details.

A cursory study of the building industry shows to what extent the cites have been compelled to fight the exodus of city residents to the suburbs and to the country. New construction started during the first five months of 1924 for the entire country totalled almost $2,000,000,-000. The activity has been so great that the momentum is bound to car-y the industry through the winter at high level, though it il now quite evident that building has been in excess of the demand in the large centers of population while there has been comparatively little construction in the smaller cities in the villages and on farms. This condition has greatly stabilized values in the country districts. Indeed much wisdom has been shewn in the careful way in which this housing problem has been met by the men in the country. Prior to the great demand for city homes country real estate was at low ebb. Then came the great pressure on the city folks due to the enormous increase in rents. The rush for the open found the country ready for the absorption without any pressing necessity to increase the number of homes. The result is that country propel ties have been turned from obligations into valuable income producing assets . The fact that city rents are still abnormally high ensures the safety of the country districts. In the suburbs of the larger centers it is an accepted fact that Ihe advance in values is now established on a permanently higher level. Once the city man tastes the glories of sunshine and gets the whiff of the new mown hay, the call of the cabaret an 1 the white lights makes little or no appeal. Country life needs only to be tried to be appreciated. Sao Paulo Loss From War Estimated at $20,000,000 Sao Taulo. Once more In comnuinl cation with the outside world, the revolution-swept city of Sao Paulo, staggering under the blow of three weeks of vicious civil war, is checking up the death toll and wreckage. Fifteen hundred persous, most of them peaceful citizens, were killed or wounied during the fighting. It la now estimated. Troperty loss of at least $10,-000,000 was inflicted as the city's large manufacturing district was torn by the bombardment of the federals and mob rioting, while It Is said losses In the residential section will increase this by another $10,000,000.

The 66 Covere Wheat Money Floods Institutions of Southwest; Rush Only Well Started. Kansas City, Mo. Country bankers of the Southwest are clamoring by mail and personally among Kansas City hunks for commercial paper and other outlets for their rapid accumulations of new w heat money. The movement of new- wheat in the Southwest has only started, but already the hanks of Kansas City alone have effected an increase of $20,000,000 iu their country hank deposits. Thv harvest is so much greater than expected and the prices being paid for wheat so much higher that new wheat money Is flowing into the Southwest iu a volume exceeding the happiest dreams of farmers and bankers. One of the larger banks in Kansas City had $22,000,000 In country bank deposits prior to the Inauguration of the new wheat movement; today its country bank deposits are in excess of $30,000,000. Another large bank has gained $3,000,000 In country bank deposits In this period. Country Clamors for Paper. "What shall 1 Bay?" This question was asked by an officer of one of the larger banks here In considering a reply to a country banker who had sent a second letter clamoring for commercial paper or other loans that wbuld provide an outlet for $50,000 of new wheat money. While he was considering an answer to this request, another letter came to his desk from a country bank that it desired to Increase Its application for the purchase of commercial paper, grain loans or other Investments from $15,-000 to $25,000. Best Crop in History. Prom the receiver of a country bank near Dodge City, wh'ch is In the Kansas district having the best wheat crops iu history, one leading tank of Kansas City has boon advised that the paper it holds against that Institution will he paid in full with interest. The amount duo Is $1..00 plus Interest. When the bank near Dodge City failed, the Kansas City correspondent bank told the receiver not to press the farmers to pay off in order to effect a rapid liquidation. "Let them make a crop," the Kansas City bank wrote. Nature and the farmers did the rest, and the Kansas City bank will not lose u cent. HERE HAPPINESS IS. How You Gonna Keep 'Em on the Farm? enteries a "popular" song of a few- years ago, which in words, sentiment and music was about on a par with the average "popular" sor.e; that is, some degrees below absolute artistic zero. But this, painting the delights of Broadway, and considering he farm as a cold storage plant for all joy, was popular in the crowded centers. It had a reflection on the minds of the growing generations that bids fair to make us an urban nation. The truth is that farmers children generally have more reason to be happy, and are, than any city child. Childhood loves the outdoors; it loves growing things, and animals, and going barefoot, and fishing with cover. Many times it is impossible at each week's end to house all implements scattered over the farmstead. But certainly in the fall all implements can be put under cover, and through the summer a few canvas tarpaulins, to spread over the most expensive machinery, are money makers. Farmers houses and tools last about half as long as they should because they are not repainted, and not given ordinary protection from long seasons of bad weather. And when you paint remember that linseed oil and white lead are the only things in paint worth having. The best system is to buy your lead and oil and turpentine and do your own mixing; if not, get the best paint you can find; cheap paint is a waste of time and cash. REAL VACATIONS. Wagoiii99 MORE LAND NEEDED. Government Arrests Fifty Mexicans in Evans Murder Mexico City. President Obrejron of Mexico has personally ordered the civil and military authorities of the state of Pnebla to investigate the slaying of Mrs. Rosalie Evans, British subject, Mho was shot to death from anitmsh near Texmelucan.

The time is coming when every cultivable acre in the Untcd Stabcs, and every acre which can be drained, or watered or cleared, are producing foxl uniler the magical touch of fanner and nature. But there is no indication that the population of this country ill cease groMing tit that time. The chances are we will continue multiplying the numlor of mouths to feed. And if we haven't learned by thou how t save food, how to grow the most of it per acre, and how to get it to our mouths with the least among the beauties ot nature.
