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.

One hardly knows whether to be iundignant or merely amused by the shameless manner in which our jazz composers steal and distort the mel­ odies of the masters in grinding out the syncopated songs and dance tunes o f the day. ' It is a far cry from the majestic “ Hallelujah Chorus” o f . Handel's “ Messiah” to the notorious \Yee. We Have No BananaC” hut they contain essentially the same melody. Rach- mainipoff’s “ Prelude” has been trans formed into “ The Russian R a g ;” the popular “ Marcheta” is adapted from Nicolal'a “ Merry Wivea of Windsor,’ Chopin’s “ Impromptu in t>b becomes “ Chasing Rainbows.\ Some of the modern “ composers” are even brazen enough to indicate by their titles the sources of their stolen airs, as witness a tune called “ Ragged William,” based on a theme from Rossini’« “ William Tell,” and another entitled “ So Ths Is Venice,’ a distortion of the well known “ Car nival of Venice,\ by Schumann. There are dozens of other similar examples o f piracy Which might be pointed out, which are easily recog n'.zable by anyone acquainted with real music. But, as there is no way to stop such sacrilege, It is probably just as well to smile, for indignation \ l f n t help matters. Mrs. Karl Peterson, who was op­ erated on at Murray’« hospital.

TAX ON NECESSITIES Gasoline hss besoms such a uni­ versal necssity with the great major­ ity of farmers and city people that an increased tax to resisted. The raise of one cent a gallon In many states to looked upon as a tax of one cent a pound on sugar, tea, coffee or flour would be. If the tax be increased one cent a gallon whenever the notion takes the legislature, It can be run np to 10 cents a gallon. Proposed Increases In gasoline and automobile taxes in all states to­ tal six hundred millions, and to sad­ dle such taxes on a tingle commodity Is grossly unfair. The argument for a raise in gaso- ie'taxtom e e tToad^fnnds to un­ sound, because iteould easier be met Ifey lnerealng the . license, or tonnage tax on motor trueks that wear the rpads more than aV the flivvers and ploaaure ears combined.

We can meet death without winking nn eyelash, but cold pancukes for break fast or a lost collar button unfits us for business for the day. Our friends and our reputations are often made or ¿lest, by # 4 p i U M * W l # h we meet the seemingly Insignificant situations of life. 1 knew a man once who lived with Ids wife twenty years. They stood by each other through all sorts of sor rows and disasters, but he finally ap plied for a divorce. She had a per siatent habit of taking his soiled hand kerchief out of his pocket each eve nlng and substituting a fresh one. li was a violation of his rights, which could not be brooked, and which bade fair to sour his whole disposition; he tried In vain to break her of the prne tlce, and, falling in this, sought release from the annoyance through the dl vorce courts. Yet they had met with heroism and fortitude the serious things of life. It Is seldom the vital or Important occurrences which try our tempers or upset us, or make home heaven or hell for us; It Is the trifling thing, the un expected annoyance or omission. Many of these things are largely matters of personal temperament to which we yield without a struggle. We even become elated or take pride In the fact, at times, that there are cer­ tain things which we do not like or which we cannot stand. Some men boast of tbeir little foibles or Irrita­ tions as If they were an asset rather than a liability. I heard a man admit the other day that a corroded pen, or a dry inkwell, or a waste-paper basket put thought­ fully out of reach by the janitor did more to disturb bis equanimity than a dozen difficult customers would hare done. ‘ la my college days I saw an other «rise well-balanced Instructor—an ex perienced mlddleaged gentleman- thrown Into a frenzy because his hat dropped twice from (he hook on which be war- trying to hang I t He would have met a crisis ha Iff* with com pom e and complete ptacidity.

Out of the United Stutes each year la sent approximately one half of the total cotton crop, one-fourth of the yield of the wheat fields, one fifth of the porkers and huge quantities of corn and tobacco, dried fruits und other products of field and feed lot. The accompanying chart, prepared by the Sears Roebuck Agricultural Foundation, shows where the principal exports go. In the United Kingdom move-of America’s farm exports are consumed than In any other nutlon. The United Kingdom uses more American cotton than any other country, her annual consumption averaging around 1,580,010 hales. Germany is In the market for almost as much cotton, using 1,011,014 pounds last year. The United Kingdom is the first market for American wheat and flour, tobacco, corn sirup and condensed milk.

JACKSON SUNDAY SCHOOL [Reported by Mrs. A W Wilson] W e were sure pleased to have a mother stud, her three little < nca en tod aa worke># with us this Sunday. A unanimous vote was cast to ob­ serve Children’s day, the second Sun day in June, and the corresponding secretary was ordered to write for appropriate literature. Four aprons from the stoee house have recently been sold for 13. One handkerchief was bought and sent te a friend in Independence, Kansas. The friend writes back thus: “ The hadkerchtef is so pretty, and 1 think of you and your frjend every time 1 look at it. I «an going to try bo help with that church building fund too.” The letter from the National Mis­ sion acknowledging our contribution was read to the school. It said, in part: \It should be a source of sat­ isfaction to your Sunday school tc feel that your gift is helping to sup­ port this work and that your money is being transmitted into ministries of service nd blessing to lens of thou- antls who are in need of the gospel of Christ and otherwise would bf utterly neglected.

It 1s hinted that he has al­ ready discovered that his primary trouble problem In the department Is to realty reorganize it into an ef­ fective going cohceru. It is regret­ table but true that the department of agriculture, for all the tine work it has done, 1« honeycombed with imi­ tation, useless and extravagant bu­ reaus and sub-divisions which are of on particular value. Mixing brains with the soil Is now a recognised feature of farming life, but in vari­ ous bureaus of the department, in the attempt to build up organisa­ tions the proportion of brains to common farm soil ha# become as nine to one. The farmers of the country want facts, want advice, and are eager for instruction, but when It oomes to the point where for the giving out of a five-dollar ''fact a five thousand dollar bureau has to be or­ ganized, it is about time to call a halt. This may seem a wanton exag­ geration, but it is not far from the facts. The sooner the deadwood and underbrush is cleared away, the sooner the department of agriculture will function ag tt really should, to the benefit o f (he farmers. That we understand is the goal toward which Jardlne is moving. ifStrniFFIKTTiTY IN HEARING Two elderly men, both extremely deaf, met on a country road Dave had fishing pole in his wagon.
