This story may or may not be
true, in all its particulars but in
view of the drops in the curren-
cies of certain European countries
which suffered heavily in the
Great War and in the subsequent
domestic and economic upheavals
which followed the hostilities, I
am inclined to think it at least
has a plausible sound to it.
It is said that a Swiss hotel-
keeper made an announcement
which was calculated to bring
him the patronage of refugee
notables from other lands. He
gave it out that at current rates
of exchange he would accept mon-
ey of any continental nation in
settlement of accounts. As a
consequence his establishment was
at once filled up with distinguish-
On a certain morning so the
story runs an Austrian asked for
his bill. He glanced at the figures
and then heaved a heavy suitcase
upon the desk of the proprietor.
“You will find enough money
in this bag to pay you, ” he said.
Next to come was a German
nobleman. Upon learning the
amount of his indebtdeness he
produced a yellow slip and put
it into the hand of the Swiss.
‘‘This he said “is the bill of
lading for a carload of marks
which arrived yesterday consigned
to me. The car is now at the sta-
tion. Go there and get as many
bales as you need.”
The third patron was a Russian
prince. After a glance at his bill
he drew from an inner pocket a
flat thin heavy package which
gave off a metallic sound as he
deposited it upon the desk-top.
“What is this?” asked the hotel
“These,” said the Russian, are
the engravers’ plates. Kindly take
them and print as many million-
ruble notes as may be required.”

and H: N- EHmns, of Graham,
have bought Ben Pasehall’s in-
terest in the Paris Tailors and
have assumed active manage-
ment of the business. These gentle
men also bought the Guaranty
Tailor shop and the two shops
have been consolidated at the
stand of the Paris tailors near
the southeast corner of the square.
Mr. Stepp, who has been with
the Paris _ Tailors some time, re-
mains in the business. The new
management states that the same
business principles will be carried
out and that all work is guar-
anteed. They have a large ad-

BELIEVE IN SOMETHING

j It- is an insult to the creative
power of the universe to think it
would endow us with the breath
iff. life and then not provide the
means for each of us to supply
all our needs without appropria-
ting what belongs to another.
The new day dawns in business
when we realize we. need not push
another down to make room for
ourselves. There is opportunity
for happiness, success and pros-
perity for each of us who will
have faith to believe in it and
courage to work for it.
The new day is here when we
seek happiness and freedom for
ourselves by seeking it for all.
-AYe/ claim our own from the In-
finite supply through our work,
instead of trying to grasp it from
our neighbor. We clasp our broth-
er’s hapd and say come along,
instead of trying to outrun him.
We see all nations as friendly
neighbors wanting to exchange
the commodities of life, peace-
ably. We flash across the sky of
the world— co-operation of indi-
viduals, countries, people, in
stead of cut-throat competition.

Ten years’ work by the Fed-
eral agricultural experiment sta-
tion in Guam on adaptation of
Temperate zone vegetables to
the soil and climate there has
resulted in the introduction of
varieties of many vegetables into
the gardens of natives of Guam.
Previous to this very few garden
vegetables were grown. Beans,
carrots, corn, cucumbers radishes,
pumpkins, and watermelons are
reported to the United States De-
partment of Agriculture as being
among those best adapted to con-
ditions on that island.
