KHAN HAPPINESS A BUSINESS ASSET.
Human life is gradually becoming
recognized as a business asset. This
ii a new fact in the development of
the race. Life-insurance companies
are realizing that they can increase
their dividends faster by cutting
down the death-rate than by in-
creasing sales or by reducing ex-
penses. Employers of large num-
bers of human machines are realiz-
ing the surprising fact that, as a
cold business proposition, it pays,
not in sentiment but in dollars, to
take good care of their employees.
Business men are learning that
well-fed, well-clothed, contented men
and women, working in well-lighted,
well-ventilated quarters and on
ached ules arranged in accordance
with our modern knowledge of
psychology and physiology, actually
torn out more work and better work
than underpaid, discontented help,
working under' uncomfortable and
«sanitary conditions. Therefore
large corporations are spending
money liberally in playgrounds, rest
rooms, libraries, gymnasiums, sani-
tary lunch-rooms, moving-picture
allows, safety devices, ventilating
«ystenis and similar devices for the
well-being and enjoyment of their
employees. If one asks these men
why they are doing these things,
they will disclaim any charitable or
philanthropic motives. "This isn't
dbarity," says one firm, "we want
that clearly understood. This is
■imply good business management
and common sense. A well man is
of more use to us than a sick man.
A happy, contented woman turns
out more work and better work
than an unhappy one. Therefore
anything we can do to make the
people who do our work at ease in
mind and body we regard as good
business management, just as we
regard fire-insurance, improved ma-
chinery and labor-saving devices."
The firms that have realized the
enormous importance of this dis-
covery are already reaping the ben-
efits. The conservation of the
health of employees will be a fun-
damental principle of good business
management in the future. When
It is fully recognized by the indus-
trial world that sickness is a mate-
rial, liability and that health is a
realizable commercial asset, says
the Journal of the American Med-
ical Association, contagion and pre-
ventable diseases will be hunted
down and exterminated as relent-
lessly as modern industrialism now
pursues counterfeiters, forgers and
other commercial criminals.

The gossip will not stand in front
of one and utter his biting words,
and even if he is charged with the
offense he will fall back on some
fellow slanderer and say he heard it
from that source. The gossip
hasn't the courage to meet his own
story. It is a good plan to live our
own lives and let our neighbors live
theirs, in the sweet satisfaction of
attending to our own business
Don't keep an eye open for what

We v an't help learning of things
not intended for public knowledge,
but when we tell of them we are no
better than the common pickpock-
et. Our own lives are not so well
ordered but that others may see
some of our own shortcomings. If
we "stab" others we must expect
them to retaliate. If we kill the

The most poisonous reptile in the
world is the character killer.
The great evil of neighborhood
life is slander; a tongue fed with the
killing of character is as deserving
of punishment as the hand red

Cotton headed further toward 10
cents during Tuesday's session. A
new low record for the season of
1912-13 has been set and prices are
lowest since early in February last.
War in the Balkans has a depress-
ing effect. Liverpool declined 10 %
to 11 >2 points as compared with
Monday's last prices.
Despite what would have been
termed a bad weather map the
American markets slumped. A
storm was said to be developing in
the gulf and in the Atlantics more
rain was predicted.
As compared with Monday's last
prices active months closed 19 to
23 points down.

Furniture Fashions for
the Homes of Today!
fl^ASHIONS IN FURNITURE are important in such
J* measure as they contribute to the refining influ-
ence of our homes, or in their practical qualities as
they meet our needs in the supplying of comfort and
convenience. Fashions in furniture are widely varied,
and as created in the products of present-day makers,
are designed to meet, in an equally admirable manner,
the requirements of homes most lavish or most modest.
Fashions in-furniture are shown in their most widely
varying styles in the magnificent display embraced in
our splendid stock. To many our stock will afford op-
portunity to gratify tastes most critical and esthetic.
To others the more practical styles will appeal, and of
these the variety is ample enough to please and de-
light all who prefer simplicity and everyday usefulness.
Every day in the week we keep "open house," with
an invitation to every one to come and make them-
selves at home—to look without obligation to buy.
