GorrelT, Owner James K. Gorrell, Publisher Hot Weather United States. We also have an element in sporting crowds unwilling to tolerate victory by a foreigner. It is on record that the French boxer Criqui was unmercifully hissed and booed in this country solely on account of his nationality and we read that only the other day there were "galling displays of patriotic partisanship" at the expense of brave and gentlemanly Carpentier, who fought a losing game with superb pluck. In spite of such unsportsmanlike displays of chauvinistic partisanship, of which elements are guilty, Col. Robert M. Thompson, president of the American Olympic committee, insists that friendly athletic feeling among nations has been cemented by the Olympiad held in Paris this year. No doubt he is riglit in saying there is every reason to continue these interesting international contests. Those whose "patriotism" checks the growth of the true spirit of sport are not widely representative and will be even less so as time goes on. Here is where we save you Big Money.

She had been in failing health for some time, but was bedfast only during the last few weeks. Mrs. Heckaman's maiden name was Catherine Matz. She was born in Stark county, Ohio, Feb. 18, 1842, and came to this part of the country when she was three years old. On Feb. 11, 1866, she was united in marriage with Emanuel Heckaman, and they have lived at their home five and a half miles southeast of Bremen ever since. Nine children were born to them. Joshua, the eldest, died ins infancy. Those surviving are Mrs. Elizabeth George, Nap-panee; Henry, Willard and Ervin Heckaman, Mrs. Dora Wynian and Mrs. Delia Strang, of this community; Michael Heckaman, Wibaux, Montant; Francis Heckaman, Plymouth The husband also survives, as well as a large number of more distant relatives.

He gets the manufacturer's profit. He benefits also because his plant operates twelve months in the year. No city factory could operate at a profit with investment in machinery and buildings idle a large part of the time. Yet under the old grain farming system that was precisely the farmer's handicap, overcome now by modern methods which have provided him with a complete factory unit capable of functioning the year round. They are building new barns and silos, not hard times structures, but permanent buildings, equipped with modern dairying machinery, running water, electric lights and all up-to-the minute apparatus. They are purchasing more machinery, continually increasing their investment and always showing the completeness of their faith in their enterprise. A CITIZEN'S PLEDGE. Mrs. Maude Wood Park, president of the National League of Women Voters, is the author of "A Pledge for Citizens" which puts in a few words the very essence of good citizenship. The creed reads: "Believing in governmena, by the people, for the people, I will do my best "First: To inform myself about pub-lip questions, the principles and policies of political parties, and the qualifications of candidates for public offices. "Second: To vote according to my conscience in every election, primary or final, at which I am entitled to vote. "Third: To obey the law even when I am not in sympathy with all its provisions. "Fourth: To support by all fair means the principles of which I approve. "Fifth: To respect the right of others to uphold convictions that may differ from my own. "Sixth: To regard my citizenship as a public trust." A MEASURE OF PROGRESS. The agricultural fail's and contests have played a distinct part in the progress and development of agriculture. In the early days of agriculture in the eastern states, farmers with their best cows, horses, grains, vegetables and fruits would gather under the shade of trees at some convenient point and compare, criticise and judge the various farm products. From this small beginning has come the township fair, the community fair, the county fair, and the state fair. The Indiana state exposition brings together the best products from the several counties of Indiana as well as from adjoining states. It offers a most desirable place for exhibits of livestock, agricultural products, women's work, farm machinery and other manufactured products. It brings together the best of all classes and lines, not only in Indiana, but from adjoining states. It gives the visitors opportunity to see the best and to know the progress that is being made in the development of the various products. The state of Indiana has financed the Indiana Board of Agriculture in order that the State Fair may serve the people of the state. The work of th Indiana Board of Agriculture and the value of the State Fair will be measured by the attendance of the. people of the state. The State Fair exhibits and educational features will best serve those who attend the fair, who study the exhibits and receive Young Men's CQ, So the immediate taking effect of this ordinance as amended, therefore the same shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage.

Misers, children with toy banks, farriers of the more sequestered regions and suspicious folk are hoarding $400,000,000 in the United States today, keeping it out of circulation, according to a recent statement by Joseph S. McCoy, actuary of the United States treasury. Mr. McCoy declares that there are S.000 real misers in the United States and that they keep about $44,-000.000 out of circulation because of their miserly tendencies. He calculates that 2,500,000 children with toy banks keep about $1,500,000 out of circulation, too, but that is not regarded as a bad symptom, for the children obviously are learning to save. Rural residents, because of their very isolation, are credited with boi ling $125,000,000 out of circulation, though this is based on a calculation of earnings as against savings bank deposits, and practically any farmer would probably be willing to testify as to the rapidity with which the margin slips away. The suspicious folk who do not know enough about banks to trust them are holding out about $225,000-000. Mr. McCoy believes. The total certainly looks like a great deal, but it is steadily decreasing and will continue to decrease as banking education progresses. . The banks of the United States are spending millions every year to preach the gospel of thrift and safety. In this day and age, there ,is little excuse for anybody to emulate Richard Bellasis who walked the streets of London Towne in the sixteenth century. When Bellasis died, as the story goes, he left 64 pounds sterling to his sister with the note that it was "within a littele pourse of whyte rybbon within a littell lether bagg, which is putt within a white lether shoue and lyeth in the west eynd of the highest Moore of the pressor in the stud ye where the glasses stand." Richard may not have been consistent in his spelling, but he certainly was consistent with the needs of his day in the hiding of money. But now all that is changed; and the man who wants to know where his money is tomorrow, makes use of a bank, and, incidently, helps stabilize his nation's currencv. GOING AWAY AND COMING BACK Summer vacations should bring the folks back home with a broader vision, greater health, and a firmer appreciation of the old home town. Every man and woman secretly nurses in the mind the vision of a town that would be most desirable. They work through the winter months and then when holiday time comes around they make a dash for what they hope will prove their ideal surrounding, only to find as a rule that they have found nothing particular-new. Right then they should realize that the kind of town they really wart can be had right where thev have their real estate investment if j they only set to work to make it so. j As the good verse says, "It's a knock at yourself when you knock your tov n: it isn't your town IT'S YOU." Real towns are not made by listless existence in them. Thev are not built by jealousies r.or by ruinous com pet i- j tic--. Prosperity and happiness are j fruits of a constructive spirit, the re- j suit of every o;vo working for the! same end, no one codeimr a fitting t responsibility.

V The behavior of a lower element in the French crowds toward foreign winners has led to the conclusion in some quarters that international Olympic games tend to prevent rather than to foster good feeling between nations. This view is based on the assumption that such unsportsmanlike elements are generally representative, it takes no account of the fact that education in fair play and tolerance is still needed in all countries, and it ignores the fact that with too many of the unintelligent everywhere, "patriotism" largely consists in an unfriendly attitude toward foreigners. This is true to some extent even of Great Britain and the Positive and automatic lubrication of the Buick valve-in-head engine, fan, transmission and universal joints, keeps a Buick owner's mind free from worry all the time. THE CHANGING WORLD. Probably nothing in all history has made so great a change in living conditions within a single quarter of a century as has the automobile. By far the greater part of present-day problems, both financial and social, can be traced directly or indirectly to the motor vehicle. Consider for a moment the startling changes that have come about almost within the lifetime of the younger generation, all because of this one innovation: Extending of the suburbs of cities, making possible larger aggregations of people. Greatly extending the territory upon which factories can draw upon for help. Greatly increasing the attendance upon all places of amusement, particularly in the county seat and small towns. Extending the field of labor of the doctor of medicine, thus helping out in the shortage of country physicians. In connection with the telephone, reducing the death rate, as many a life is now saved which would have been lost in the days of old. Extending the possible friendships and visitations between more widely separated acquaintances. Promoting a better knowledge of nature, both near and remote. Greatly facilitating the escape of criminals from the s seat of their crime, thus making possible bold daylight robberies in the cities, as well as extending the field of operations in country districts. Increasing the personal indebtedness of citizens by many millions; their taxes, and the public debt for road building and maintenance. The overturning of other agencies of transportation, putting the horse off the roads and the electric lines out of business. Is the automobile worth what it has cost? It is probable that the vote would be in the affirmative. Somehow no one seems to want to go "back to the ways of our fathers" in transportation. .. , . VACATION VALUES. Better health, new friends, broader acquaintance with the wide world, and a clearer mini are some of the rewards of the vacationist and traveler. Casual contacts with strangers frequently establish lifelong friendships. People who meet at the highway crossings of the world while seeking recreation and diversion are usually in the mood for friendships any slight mutual interest or as sociation is enough to strike the J spark that sets the warm fires of affection burning. Apart from their ordinary pursuits, men and women find it hard to sustain an interest in mere things no matter how much they excite curiosity at first. In the press of affairs the ordinary business man rarely has the time to glance aside from the thing in hand to get moiv than a good look at the people with whom he makes the contacts that are incident to the carrying on of his business. But in vacation time the man is the thing, and people get to know one another more intimately in a few days on a ship or a train or at a resort tlmn they do in years of ordinary business, or even social contacts. i i THE FARM FACTORY. The farmer, in working out the problem of turning a deficit into a surplus, has made his farm more and more of a factory. Formerly in this area it was chiefly a farm. It produced raw materials in the form of hay, wheat, oats, barley and other grains which were hauled to market and sold to dealers, subsequently to be purchased by manufacturers. Now, however, the farmer, instead J of selling the raw materials, feeds them to a large extent to live stock Frank Rush Answers Final Summons Tuesday Francis Rush, eighty-five years old, died suddenly from apoplexy Tuesday at noon. Funeral services will be held at Grace United Brethren church Friday afternoon, Rev. A. F. Knepp, pastor of the church, officiating. Burial will be at the North Union cemetery northwest of Bremen. Mr. Rush was born near Dayton, Ohio, July 4, 1839, and at the time of his death Tuesday was eighty-five years, one month and eight days old.

When Abraham Lincoln was a young man he ran for the legislature of Illinois and was badly swamped. He next entered business failed and spent 17 years of his life paying up the debts of a worthless partner. He was in love with a beautiful woman to whom he became engaged and then she died. Entering politics again he ran for Congress and was badly defeated. He then tried for an appointment in the United States Land Office, but failed. After this he became a candidate for the United States Senate and was defeated. In 1S56 he became a candidate for the vice presidency, but lost the race. In 185$ he was once more defeated, this time by Douglas. In the face of all this, he eventually became one of the country's greatest men, if not The Greatest. How would you stiyid in face of such setbacks? Think it over. Lapps Famed in Witchcraft.
