EDUCATION AND WEALTH I Does education pay ? } . Assuredly! It pays.its votaries in I character, health, culture, preparation l for vocations, and all that goes to make up a well-rounded life. it fits us to become law-abiding and GOd- fearing citizens of the great Republic. Yes; education pays. But let us consider, apart from its idealistic trend, whether education pays in dollars and cents. The fact is self evident that an educated na- tion is a more productive:one, com- Inercially and industrially. The money value of an education is being empha- sized in the insistent demand for spec- ial training for specific vocations. The more education is diffused, the mme specialized and techndcal it becomes, the more its costs increase; but the national income increases with greater rapidity as a resultant.

Soot and mot of the dust and smoke have been remov- ed from it in making gas. It is entire. ly combustible, leaving only a fine powdery ash, about half as much in quantity as results from the burning of equal weight of hard coal. Coke is lighter than coal, consequently easier to handle in households. It can be burned just as coal, but requires some- what different treatment in firing in order to yield the best results. Being porous coke kindles easier than coal. In furnace use three or four shovelfuls of coke should be thrown on"in the morning and all drafts opened for ten or fifteen min- utes. When there is a good bed: of fire the fire box should be filled as full as possible. The drafts should be left on'for ten or fifteep minutes long- er, then should be shut off and the check drafts all opened.

InCreased ability to produce wealth results from education because of the three factors in the production of ma- terial wealth (natural resouxces, na- tive ability of people, and education). Education is the only factor which is widely variable or susceptible of im- yvement. Natural resources may be asted but not Ancreased. Native ability is a practical constant, chang- ag imperceptibly from generation to neration. Education may effect riking differecnes in a short period. It is coming more and more to be case that a man's chances in life re poor indeed without the formal training given in our educational in- stitutions 1. According to a study of Dr. t'rnarles Twing of the 100 wealthiest aen in 0he United States, considered with reference to the total population, there were 277 times as many college- bred men as there were noneollege- Ied men. 2.

Such might well be the refrain of the fake grocery mail order houses, says a bulletin from the Associated Advertising Clubs of the World, wldch has recently made some investigation of the methods of such concerns. To make all the prices on their so-called "cut price" list look low, they will cut the price of sugar, or some well known soap, or some other article of known value, then make it up by selling some- thing else, such as a bulk tea of un- known value, at a price that will make the whole ope:ation pay a profit. It is well to bear two things in mind says the bLflletin. First, beware of the -man who offe you a staple product like sugar at a price several cents be- low the price at the refinery. He wtl make it p in something else. Second, no business aan will give his oods away, nor loose money on a staple article which does not go out of style and which is good until used, like sugar. He is not a philanthropist. He will make up his loss. Some of the oldest tricks work best, and continue to work over and over. It would seem that the time would ar- rive when all the people had been bit- ten by he house that offers a thing of known value at a very low price and then compels the customer t6 take something whose price is unknown (such as bulk tea or coffee, for ex- ample) in the same order. It is safer to buy from your home merchants. -- $ DR. J. S. CHWART:P. OPTOMETRIST Og MINNEAPOLIS .Jars Can Never Measure Seal Results Clinical Program of the Minnesota r'nblic Health Association Has Reached All Counties -[.' The message of health, of d,sease '1d') prevention, of cor- - | ', rection of defects ,  anced through the '==''ii sale of Christmas * Seals, has been planted in every county in the abate of Minnesota, ac- cording to Dr. William F. Wild, Exe- cutive Secretary of the Minnesota Pub- tic Health Association. Says Dr. Wild: "How many other states in the Un- ion, if any, cau boast of a program of health work such s is taking place in Minnesota at present. Every county in the state has had at least one clinic and most cotmties have had :nany, where expert medical advice has been given free. Stop for one moment and think of this work. It is lomwn that many defects can be corrected in child hood that cannot be corrected in adu]t life. Think of a program which brings specialists to the most remote rural sections of our state. We know that gnorance of a condition never cured that condition, hence our educational program has'been placed on a broad enough scale to be within the reach of all. "Dollars and cents can never mea3ure the benefits and value of these clinics, though even on this basis they are a hundred fold investment, and yet the whole expenditure dwindles into insig- nificance when compared to the untold oy of mothers wose undernourished children have become strong and xo- bust as a result thereof. "Nor is the program limited to child- ren, as chest clinics are held in coun- ties not taken caxe of in Tuberculosis ,Sanatorium Districts, where adults can have chest examinations made. "The educational "activities last year included the distribution of over 100,- 000 pieces of free literature, reaching every county in the state. County fairs have been supplied .with free .health literature, and pamphlets on many different subjects are sent free to any person in the state upon re- quest Lectures, motion pictures, affd other activities on a broader scale than has ever before been attempted, are being conducted by the State and county Public Health Association which .are entirely financed through the sale of Christmas Seals. It can truly be said of the Christmas Seal, "The good they do', depends on you!" A Good Factory Held The Town Why will the business men or a Commerv.ia] Club of a town or city make every effort to locate a new fac- tory within its borders? Simply and solely that the labor f the town and community may be given an opportun- ity to market its products; that when the local and imported labor is given employment t.means that every man having business connections with that town and vieimty will benefit as well as labor. It is a Community invest- ment. This laboY natmally spends it. wages locally-- all conditions being fa- vorable. What right, moral or qther- wise, has any man to profit thereby, without contributing ,his share in the investmentthat is in his patronage to local merchants, enhancing local mar- kets, real estate and other legitimate local investments ?
