The news dispatches
uesday tdl about Mr
duck hunting in Arizen:
iny a mesquite tree to esc ipe a
mad bull on the rampage. Tiu
dispatch adds that he did not
save all of his hunting suit, how
ever. That reminds the Star-
A short while back when some
great men of the country, led by
Mr. Roosevelt, were preaching
preparedness, for nothing, Mr.
Bryan was singing a beautiful
lullably to packed houses about
international arbitration, telling
how to charm such beasts as the
German Kaiser with the beauti-
ful emblem, the olive branch.
We sat down and listened, and
now before we can get our de-
fense ready, we have lost such
parts of our hunting suit as
Rumania, a considerable part of
Russia and a part of that most de- j
lightful part of the earth’s sur- i
face, the sunny plains of Italy.
The dispatch doesn’t say
whether Mr. Bryan tried to ar-
bitrate with the bull, nor wheth-1
or he offered it any of those elo I
<|tient plattitudes about the reci j
procity of affection that ought to
exist between the lion and the
lamb. But it says some other j
hunters came along and, killed it
with powder and lead.
The moral of the circumstance
is that a mad bull may be abroad
at anytime. That sweet-sound-
ing words won’t stop him. That
nations, like individuals, ought
to have their own powder and
lead ready and not depend upon
the ammunition of others nor
upon the proximity of a friendly

Union Meeting at
Our National Government is daily calling upon us to
conserve, to economize, to stive.
It does not ask us to deny ourselves of those
things we need-—in fact we are cautioned that mis-
erliness will result in injury to all. We must make
every dollar that we spend return us full value and
we must spend where we will get the greatest bene-
fits. By spending our money with our home mer-
chants, we will stimulate local commercial activi-
ties; and a portion of the money thus spent will pass
through our hands again. We must keep every dol-
lar we can in local trade channels—hut more than
that, we must make it a point to demand and re-
ceive one hundred cents in value or service for each
dollar we spend. You can help your Government,
your home merchant and yourself by spending your
money at home. Bring your surplus to this bank tor
