What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

If his medium is the stage, very well. The drama can only gain by it. Of course cer- tain questions were far better discussed in the intimacy of the home than in public. A mother's words to her daughter about the things of life which girls should be taught or warned against, it seems to me, must carry more • weight and dignity than the pic- ture lessons, as it were, of the stage. I know there are few mothers who have enough prac- tical knowledge to be of service to their daughters in that respect. And there are even fewer, I am afraid, who can bring themselves to speak frankly to their chil- dren. Yet it is necessary that girls should know many things about which they have been kept so long in ignorance, and there the drama may rightly step in. But it takes a very high and clean mind to deliver the mes- sage usefully. A. man like- Brieux succeede with themes of the most difficult sort precisely because of his high mindedness and the big- ness of his purpose. -Miss Ida Tarbell. People realize that a sweeping change in oat banking business is inarguratea in the new currency bill recently enacted by Congress. Tu put it in a \nut shell,\ under this lave if a bank is unable tc accommodate 'the demands for money in Its vicini- ty it can secure the necessary funds from the Government Regional bank and . thus reedeadsh its cash drawer - untie it can fully satisfy its custom- ers. Exponents of the new thaw main - lain that he the future there can be no such thing as a \tight money mar- ket\ and it mill be almost Impossible to create a 'penile such as the came key bed , in 1893 and the financial . stringency of 1907. The financial oantroli of the country is said to be taken out of the heeds of \Wall Street,\ where it bag evidently been for some yeasts, and placed in the hands of Uncle Sam. National banks are authorized to make loans to farmers for long terms on neat 'estate, awl also short time loans on, unharvested crops, ?whIch privileges they did not enjoy . heretofore._ /While 'a tIllezipicratic measure It was support- ed by other prominent party men al - 'so. There was some hesitancy on the part of country .- band* going tie to the plan arranged but the majori- ty of them now seem willing to se - . are the benefits of the law. Just where the regional banks are to be established . is now the importeet . question before the adeattnestratIon, end politics wIM, penhape, have Boni* influence in the matter. ' 'hes :s not MEXICAN AFFAIRS. man H•uerta , down im Mexico entirely lacking in the pro- prieties, and , on New( Year's day he sent a message to President Wilson, aa,follows: \The Mexican, republic, through, me, has the honor of wishing e Happy New Year to the glorious . e2oeile of the United , States, so rorthilly represe'eted Ivy your excel - • new.\ Inasmuch as President Wii- son has declared in a message to Congress that \there Is no govern- tment Mexico\ the greeting couad 'not balshfilliciailly answered. \Veen It was received at Weehington the President was down at Pass Christ- Missiisseppe eagerly awaiting the errival of a United States. cruiser • bearing John Lends whose des/wale to Mexico some months ago, aroused the Mexican Dictator to declare that the visitor was \unidetdrable.\ The significance of the meeting between the President and his Mexican en- voy caused as melee speculation in Jashington as .elsewhere. THE FARMER AND THE MERCHANT Sitting in, his office aed growling because the farmers send their mon- ey to catalogue houses gets the mer- chant no 'business. Cnitioisonemakes no friends. Settles are better than frowns. Sunshine will get a man's coat off sooner than a blow. Clow - era will get a, better spine than lem- 0118. Beeineas men are learning that \do lag\ the farmer is unpopular and be coming obsolete. Shake hands and get acquainted. Before you know it you w114l find that you both need each other in a thousandi ways. It is, an old principle that service and helpfulness beget esteem. Get a farmer to do something for you and he wi,111 like you better. Even tho the service Itself is of no conse- quence, the interest you get with It is a valuable asset in your bust- iness. The same applies with equal fancy When reversed, and the farmer re- quires service from the business man t How much better it would be for farmers to sacrifice somerwthat of independence to secure reel service from business men in town. Wouldn't it be better than roast- ing the business man , and , trying to discredit his met/heeds, to think up ecnne real service that he can rend- er? Cooperation' 'between ,country and city is one of the needs of the hour. lAM classes of society will benefit by it. :Business , men. and farmers get to - gether and shake hands. - P. S.
