A. MILLER. "Own Your Own Home." fs a slogan endorsed by our nation and supported by tho foremost men In every community In the United States, and the wise men and women of today aru making It a faet in their lives as they realize the underlying reasons why it should be so. To the man it becomes a ruling influence in his life, stimulating his ambition, Increasing bis earning capacity, giving blni a better legal status and financial as well ns social standing, aud In every way making blni a bettor citizen. The men of Power and Influence In our communities arc almost without exception owners of their homes; it is this which binds them to their home city and gives them au allabsorbiug interest tu the development and i', ell-ebing of their particular locality. What affects the community at large. Is sure 10 affect, their home and loved ones, therefore the homo owner becomes a power for good in civic development. Settled-Basis for Woman. To the woman it puts her life 011 a settled basis, and gives her a. comfortable sense of security and joy of possession, that relieves home work of its monotony and establishes her social standing. What woman but will refer with the greatest pride and hajipluess to "our home," and will be willing to make almost any sacrifice to preserve that home from destruction? To the child the home forms tho greatest protiH :tIon and safeguard against thojlls and dangers of life, as well as something to cling to and something to remember. "Home Sweet Home" is Hie most popular and lasting song ever written, because the deepest longings aud most sacred memories of the human heart are centered there. 'Be it ever HO humble" the same lender seiuimenU and 'hallowing Influences wlil always remain in the heme. From an Investment standpoint there Is nothing that affords the same security for your Investment or that will pay anything like as sure returns on your Investment. No One Too Poor To Buy. In the present day system o: home buying, whore even the family of small means may buy a home on tho Installment plan, It has become very- easy for anyone with a small amount of capital and the requisite energy ami determination, to 'own hla own home. Hutchinson and vicinity, with its still moderately priced home sites, salubrious climate, fertile soil aud abundant water supply, with easy access to larger cities and every advantage of both city and country right at our door, offers an ideal opportunity to the home seeker, and Is only a question of a short time till the family who embrace the great opportunity of today will be patting themselves on the back and congratulating each other on their foresight and flood Judgment.

JenliB, a vice prHsldent or the American Surety Company, as a result of a business survey of tho middle west. There seoms to bo no definite relationship botween tho depression lu the financial district and the actual economic condition of the country, Judging by the uilddlo- wost, according to Jonks. The survey covered Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois. "Bankers, merchants, manufacturers and farmers In tho middlowest cannot understand the pessimism which has been gathering lu tho financial district ot New York during tho past few weeks," says Jeuks. "While conditions are 'spotty' as far as .trends are concerned, thu basic conditions aru us sound us fhoy have been since tho business revival began. Whore business bus incroasud Its activities, it has done BO with caution, If we havo hud anything like a boom it has been a boom with thu brake ready. Thu prevailing feeling among business men lu tho mlddle-WGstorii states is one of carefulness an dcoiiaervutivo activity, and certainly not of pessimism. "Tbq farmers, In so far as thoy aro not satisfied with tho present situation, are not Just moody or suffering from vastie upproheuslona. Their economic condition Is one of long standing and they are doing their beat to overcome the handicaps under which they havtt been working since 1921. That they-are justified In their attitude is proved by the very marked differential" between their earning power and their buying power, The farmora will therefore not bo at all eorry to see some slackening in industrial uctivlty, wllth porhaps some consequent decrease In the prices of manufactured products and some letup In the attraction ot labor from the farms. They do not fear tho Kuropean situation, much a» they do not feel that their export marketu can be much worse than they are. "TlvBy are paying close attention to audi proposals as that of Mr. Baruch for tho co-operative marketing of wheat and to tho various nioasuroa'af- [ectliig agriculture which are to come before tho uuxt congress. "Industry in general Is basically In a healthy condition. Any uncertainty which exists is due tu caution In not overstiinulatlng production. There seems to bo no danger of BUCII a condition and there is certainly no Indication as yet of any buyers' strike. The automobile industry, which has proved to bo ti good Index of general conditions, ia undoubtedly as sound now as it haa over been lu Its history. "The bsst sign that thu situation la fundamentally sound is in the banks, lu spite of record manufacturing activity and active uiorchMidlaluu turnover, the banks have not over-extended thsmselvos. Credit conditions aro wholesome and bunking operations are substantial fluuuclug of real aud necessary eutorprlso riitbtr than speculation."
