OBLIGATION AND TAXES The man who pays his debts and his taxes may be a blessing or a curse to the community. ItNiepends on what he does. In making this statement it is to be understood that by the word 'debt' is meant the ordinary cash obligation which a man incurs in the transaction of his business. There are men who appear to believe that so long as they are not indebted to their neighbors for goods purchased, or the municipality or the state for the last tax levy they have discharged their whole duty and nothing more can be asked of them. But in reality a man's duty to his neighbor is limited only by his power to do his neighbor good, and his duty to the community by his ability to be of service to it. The community in which the prevailing statement is "What do I get of it?" is one which does not and cannot prosper. KONECNY, SOLDIER VIOLINIST TO PLAY HERE ' Josef Konecny, the Bohemian violinist, who appears here on Friday, December 2, at the high school auditorium has the double distinction of being the only artist before the American public who served first as an over-draft age volunteer in the Great War as "Buck Private," and then gave ninety concerts in France under the auspices of the Overseas Theatre League for the American and Allied soldiers "over there." During his entire army enlistment Konecny, had his violin constantly with his and played for the boys und er every possible condition. His comrade-in-arms popularly called him "Joe, the Violinist!" He played for the men in camp, in the tents and barracks, in the hospitals, out in the open under the sky and trees to audiences ranging from perhaps a few enthusiastic doughboys up to 3,500 soldiers and civilians; he appeared on the rostrum of the Knights of Columbus and the Y.M.C.A. huts, and at Fitzgerald, Ga., even played from a baggage truck at the depot, when his company was moved South. He now comes to play for you. Miss Mary Tris, the brilliant American pianiste, accompanied Mr. Konecny as associate artist on hi? overseas tour, and did her share towards cheering up the home-sick boys. 1 THREW UP HIS JOB A janitor in a neighboring school threw up his job the other day. When asked what was the trouble, he said, "I'm honest and I won't stand being slurred. If I find a pencil or a handkerchief 'bout the school I hang it up. Every little while the teacher or some one that is too cowardly to face me, gives me a slur." "In what way?" asked the officer. "Why, a little while ago I saw writing on the board, 'find the common multitude.' Well, I looked from cellar to garret and 1 wouldn't know the thing if I met it j on the street. What made me quit my job? Last night in big writin' on the blackboard, it said, 'find the greatest common divisor." Well, I says to myself, both of them darn things are lost now, and I'll be blamed for swipin' 'em, so I'll quit.' An Atchison woman, complains that her husba'nd seems to consider home merely a filling station, say? the Atchison Globe. METHODIST CHURCH Attendance and interest both were very encouraging in the revival meet- ' ing last night. I desire to urge our j church members and friends to take advantage of our favorable start, and get into the campaign with all your might, quickly. Especially do I invite folks who do not usually go to church. We want your help. AI30 we want you to 'got a blessing out of these meetings. But you can't do it , so well at home. Get into the meet- ings. Also ask your neighbors. Bring the whole family, including the baby. Meetings every night this week. Personal workers meeting at close of service tonight. 0. K.

There are two kinds of girls in the world, the girl who works and the girl who gads. Commend us to the fom-er. Work lends dignity to a pretty girl, is an added charm to her. The girl who works God bless her, combines the useful and the ornamental. She might gad about, roll on sofas, gossip and read story books, but she prefers to be of some account in the world and goes out stenographer, teacher, saleslady or housekeeper, bravely makes her own way. Such are the salt of the . earth and of such is the kingdom of the heaven. WORDS AND DEEDS One of the Japanese representatives to the Washington conference says that the Mikado's delegation comes in a" spirit of accommodation and compromise. That is a fine and proper frame of mind and it is hoped that other nations are so repre-i sented. The expression of this spirit should not be confined to words. The world is asking for something more" than suave speech. Los Angeles Times I'M THE GINK I'm the gink who never smiles; Td rather think upon my trails, and harp upon the woes I have for which I've never found a salve. The price goea Op, the pay goes down; it helps me out to wear a frown ; these birds who always wear a grin should have their doggoned heads caved In. There's nething funny I can see, the whole blamed world looks black to me. What's happened to these silly chaps to put the smiles across their maps I've got a system full of grief. I've never smiled nnd I won't try. I'll still be scowling when I die. That's me. FOOTBALL CHAMPIONS This year between the churches there sprung up several foot ball teams most of which were decidedly one sided. The invincible Baptist team won every game they played excepting one tied by the Methodist aggregation. In all sports for the last ten years the Baptists have come out in the lead except twice in base hall and once in foot ball. Thi3 is a record that is unexcelled in any of the surrounding towns by any church. Thi3 year in football the Baptists won three games and tied once. They show unlimited courage and ability on the gridiron. There are many individual stars but as a whole they work with machine-like precision. There is still time to play a few more games and should any team wish to meet this aggregation write or see Fred Jackman, Mgr., 1200 E. 7th. street, Galena, Kansas.
