A Question oj Incomes The pastor ami parishioners of a Chicago church not long ago amused themselves by ent'ti-iiiR into a general discussion of the question, "How much income docs-a young couple need to get married?" Last year this same church dis- • cussed the sam'r; cjue-tion, and concluded that ?50 a week .was the minimum. This year, taking cogni/ance of hard times, they shaved their estimates, and figured that 'matrimony /could be attempted on as litthi as $40 a week. Some brave souls even pufj the figure a • trifle 1 lower. ' Nobody who gets, married on §40 a " week is going to feel the boredom of extreme, wealth; yet if every prospec- ' tiye bridegroom in America wei'a to wait until -he was earning that much money before he led the gh'l of his choice to the altar, the annual number of marriages would drop by rather more than] 75 per cent. This is a point worth bearing in mind. AJl.tcp often, when-we speak of the "average American," we are not thinking of the average man at all b.ut of soma exceptionally lucky individual whose income is at least double the average. Mr. Stuart Chase, one of the country'^ wisest economists, has estimated that fully 90 per cent of American fnm- ili;i3 get along on approximately $2200 a year. If. you care to figure-- ?J-'*:.'t,-' you will find that that colics to only a little more than the ^O-a-week mi.n- '••Mniirctr < '-fi3:ed*'br r "our Ghicagoans for ncwlyweds. There are millions of men in America, grown men with families to support, to whom ?40 a week would look almost like riches. , Beyond any question, the number getting a lower wage than that is greater than the number getting a higher on?. c • All of this, perhaps, is not extremely important. Yet we have adopted the habit in late, yearq of overestimating ' the financial resources of thr average American, and it is time that we realized just-how things stand. The figures on the distribution of such conveniences as automobiles, washing machines, radios, elrctric refrigerators and so on are highly encouraging, but it isn't good for us to assume—as we have as- .s(im«l—that- the spectre of want has vanished forever from the average ••American horn?, even in times of high prosperity. That assumption, in fact, is probably responsible for most of our indifference to the fate of workers in backward industries, our indifference to the steady growth of that delightful thing eallrd technological unemployment, our indifference to the hopeless struggles of the thousands of unskilled laborers who are buried in the city slums. A few hundred well-intrnlioned folk agree that a young couple making a • sliu't in life must lulvc at least |40 a ;'".-w<X)k—when that is close to the avcr- [_ age income for 90 p:r cent of the nation's fnniiJics!

Stuart was the plumed knight frcm all | the old story books, He wore a I feather in his hat. and a red-lined ; cloak that streamed, over his shoul- jdc-rs in the wind, and a yellow silk i sash, and a rose In his lapc!; and he sang love songs as he rcdcfoctli to bring contusion to (he Yankees, and he fought with supreme skill and daring, and he finally died en the battlefield, mourned of Robert E.

' '" n}K Wings.'of Adventure." by (iERMANTOWX On. Oct. 24, 1G83, a party of Germans, the first German settlers in the United States, laid out Get- mantown, a suburb of Philadelphia, Pa. Four of this party had V*? distinction five years later of making the first formal protest ever made In America against slaveholding. Germantown today Is a picturesque site, having a quaint architecture, beautiful gardens and large public libraries. One siction of tlie town Is occupied by manufacturing establishments and another is conspicuous for fts fine villas. The first paper mill in America was erected in Genuautown in 1630, and here, also, in 1743 the first American edition cf the Bibb In any language was printed. Germnnlown is cMelly noted in history, however, for the battle which was fought there between . the Americans under Washington .and the British and Hessians un- 'der Howe. This' was the battle the Americans attacked men by mistake in the British 575 men. "—and aren't <hose the wtmc old uniforms they've been wearing down here for the hist two seasons?"

I do not see how Captain Thomason's book could be improved on— except, perhaps, that iie might have given us a few more of his excellent sketches.
