That being the cas - we v/ould not bo surprised if Governor Parncll wer: (liiite right in pi-otoKting that he has done everything lie can (o help the situation in Arkansas. Nothing lins been (lo::; by the stale .government to relieve condition:, in this state, and nothing can be done, because, the govcrmcnt of Arkansas luii come dangerously near to exhausting its financial resources. We arc in ;'. situation, as the recent reports of the governor and the highway commis- i sioner reveal, wher; we cannot go on i. without i£c!!ing more bonds, and we | have already sold bonds to a paint '/ where it is not going to be easy to sell : more bonds or to find the revenues to . • retire those already outstanding. ! If any private business got into a similar condition it would be hciiilcil for bankruptcy, and that ought- to be u warning to every re-idoiit and Inx- payn- of Arkansas to wake up to what ' is going on in Little Rock. Nathan Straus '' There are two ways of judging a rich man. One is to assay the manner . in which lie got his wealth; another is to judge the. manner in which he disposed of it. Probably it is the latter ..JlietlKij^ tkj}(_.iri\;cs u^-'lhc Ims^. intliea- . ' : fibr, cf.VinaivVcharacter; and Ific late' -.Nathan-Straus passes the test with flying colors.' No one knows just how many young ni£n and women are alive and in good health today who would have died in infancy if it had not been for Mr. Straus. The number must be well up in the thousands. His distribution of milk to the poor children' of Now York . while not as spectacular as some charities, was assuredly one of the most useful bits of kindness ever undertaken by any man. The man needs no epitaph and no eulogy. The more statement of what hp did is enough. He saved many, many children from dying, or from life-long ill-health. Isn't that about MS fine r. statement as anyone could wish for 1 his gravestone?
