FIRE TRUCK MUST STAY
In as much as the Fire Depart-
ment has been called on. to make
fires outside of the City Limits of
the City of Claude, we feel that It
is the duty of the City officials to
inform our farmer friends that,
due to the fact that we only have
one fire truck, we are prohibited
by State Laws governing such from
taking our one fire truck out of
the City Limits, thereby leaving our
town without any protection what-
If we had more than one piece
of fire fighting apparatus, as larger
cities do, we would be permitted to
take one of the trucks out of town
for the purpose of fighting fire in
the country or in neighboring cities.
Although we are not permitted to
send our truck out of town, the
Fire Boys will be more than glad
to bring their chemical extinguish-
ers and what equipment they can
and come to your assistance In
case of a call from the country.

of his Big New Barn, and all the
contents last Saturday morning.
This barn was a veritable store
house, with bin after bin stored to
the bursting point with wheat,
barley, oats, ground feed and every-
thing to carry the stock through
ihe winter, besides wheat for
future sale. The loft was only
recently tilled with green feed and
it is thought this heated and caus-
ed the fire. Some insurance was
carried, not nearly enough to re
pay Mr. Bledsoe for his losses.

Earmarks of restored prosperity

0|HE head of a trust company was describing the extraordin-
JHgary growth of their business.
More and more e.-tates are passing into the hands of trust
companies. The capital funds of these estate* are invested not
■illy in bonds and mortgages but in the voting stacks of the coun-
try leading corporations.
If tlie process goes on at the same rate for another twenty-
five years the trust companies will control a large proportion of
the wealth of the United States.
"Your problem is personnel," I said to the banker.
"That's our only problem," he answered.
"How are you solving it?"
"Well, we try to pick the smartest young men from the col-
leges, men who have majored in economics and finance. We start
them in at the bottom and let them fight their way up Some
drop by the wayside, but the survivors develop into very good
I told him I thought they were omitting one very important
step in the process of training.
"After your young man has had two or three years' experi-
ence in the bank, you ought to pull him out and send him into the
bean of the country," I said. "Make him spend a year or two
working on a farm, or with a section gang on the railroad, or
clerking in a country store. Insist that he live on what he earns.
"When he comes back to New York he will have some idea of
how hard ordinary people have to work for their money. He will
have a social, as well as a merely financial point of view. A dollar
will never become merely a sign or a sum to him. It will repre-
sent hopes and fears, ambitions and defeats, human sweat and
When if came time for me to go to college my father took me
aside and said; "You have planned to go to Amherst, and I ap-
prove of the plan. But I want you to take your first year at
Berea College in Kentucky, where I worked my wav through."
He added a sentence which I have never forgotten: "I want your
sympathies to be always on the side of the men who have to
struggle for what they get."
It was a wise and fine thing for a father to say to a bey.
I am one of those who believe that we are entering a period
of great social changes. No matter how big and strong an in-
stitution or an industry may be it is going to be tested. Those
institutions will win out which are headed by men of broad,
human sympathies; men who can see the other man's point of
view because they have shared the other man's daily life.
• It Is a time of wonderful opportunity lor young men. But
they must get themselves education.
Not merely the education of books; the greater education o(
>eally knowing and liking their fellow men.
Main Street Looks it Broadway
Long time residents along Broad*
v, ay become hardened to everyday
happenings, just the same as people
in small towns become used to the
whistle of the noon train. To any-
one still gaited to live in a small
place this town possesses innumer-
able wonders, O Henry never ran
cut of amazi'g talcs.
Jus! for instance visualize a sub-
way train rushing through the bow-
els of the earth at a speed of sixty
miles an hour with 3,000 people
packed in its ten cart to the point
of suffocation. There is no danger
to them, but still it u the height of
One motorman, sitting up alone
in a stuffy little compartment, con-
trols the lives of vast hordes oi his
fellow-citizens. He gets about $6

The subway is a mysterious piece
oi engineering. At one station one
rides up hve floors to take the train.
Three miles awa>, on the same line,
one leaves the train, enters an ele-
vator and rides up six floors to
the street level.
The engineers must have had
some bad da>s trying to figure out
how they could run trains up and
down hill at sixty miles an hour.
Even the switchback railways at
county fairs would have been tame
beside such a road. In fact it
couldn't have been done And so
one is rushed home on a track that
crosses vallcyj at treetup heights,
and burrows beluw ground between

Across the Tracks
Most small towns have the poorer
section of the town on the ' other
side of the tracks." That's where
the section hands and other men
who live by hard labor live. New
\ ork used to consider anything
east of Second Avenue or the Bow-
ery as "the other side of the tracks."
But things have changed.
Somebody found that the air along
the East River was just as pleasant
as that along the Hudson. An ex-
periment was tried and a hifh-
priced apartment house put up. Ten-
ants, whose social position was be-
yond question, flocked to the new
building. Others followed rapidly
and now there are miles of expen-
sive apartment*, all full and paying
wall, located "across the tracks."
