He is no different than you, except that you must learn the saving habit. Save on the budget plan—a certain amount each week going into your savings account. You will be surprised how it will grow and earn more money for you. Interest 3% yearly.

The students had been waiting impatiently for this occasion and endured breath-taking' suspense while .Mr. Nurnberger opened the program. Rev. Wittbracht announced the winning essays by the numbers thejr bore. This was very exciting for if* wasn't until Mr. Nurnberger had looked up the owner of the number that we knew who was the winner. Senior first prize went to Mary. Mood, $12; second, Alma Wiedman, $7; third, William Schwacho, ?6. Juniors, first, Eileen Martin* second, Lauren Alber; third, Velma Jedele. The amounts received weri. the same as awarded the Seniors. The first prize essays were read by their authors and were very excellent. The school was. presented a larg. sized picture of Thomas A. Edison and two replicas of his first lamp. The committee, composed of Rev, C. H. Wittbracht, Dr. J. B. Wallace, Mrs. Bessie Collins, Mrs. W. E. Dietiker and Mrs. G. O. Woodbridge, selected the fitting topic, "Why We Honor Edison,' and judged the essays. Great interest was taken in the contest as was shown by the 130 essays that were handed in. The contest was considered very wort! while and one from which all the participants received a better knowledge and appreciation of the father of the incandescent lamp—the hero of all humanity.

The subject of International Ser vice was ably presented to the Rotary Club at their meeting last Thurs- noon by Dr. J. B. Wallace, chairmav This subject covers a wide field i* Rotary work, and in introducing hie remarks Brother Wallace said: "In order to develop our interest and ser vice along the line of international relations we suggest that three meetings be devoted to that special sub ject during this year. * At these sessions we suggest: .'1 The discussion of subjects by exchange of speakers with a chose** club. 2. By studying the special country assigned to us by our District Governor. Also by inviting a professor o: student from that country to speak to us about it. 3. By purchasing a stand of flag, of all Rotarian countries and taking such steps as will make us familin,: with these flags." The speaker also suggested an in terchange of speakers with some club in Canada, and then outlined a program for the year along international service lines. A study of of flags was urged. "Off course the first flag to study is ou: own Old Glory. We should know it history from the colonial emblems t Betsy Ross and on to the present day. We should know and never neglect tne proper manner of honoring th-. flag. . . We must have a stand .. the flags of all Rotarian countries Identification of flags by mernberi will be interesting and instructive' And the Doctor took us back to tL. earliest known devices used as or flags are today, working -up to tf present in a very instructive way. "Our special flag meeting will h in June, just before or after Nationa" Flag Day. "If there be any outstanding product of our community, we may make interchange of this with club in Canada or some other country, and receive instruction botr about our own product and also that which we receive. "We may alsp extend this idea along the line of letters and communications exchanged with other clubs. "A meeting at which representatives of six or eight different countries are present might* be arrange • and have each one speak for five minutes in his own tongue and then translate what he has said into ou* own language." The speaker closed by reading Wil bur D. Nesbit's poem," "Your Fla£ and My Flag,' a fitting climax to a very fine meeting.

Opportunity Knocking _ At Saline's Front Door A little JXimely Effort Expended in Right Direction Might Land Big Hospital Here. ' Since the state has decided not to acquire the Urania site for the new psychopatic hospital, the Saline site is now the one4most likely to be s&r lected. There Were several reasons why the Urania location was turned down, but chiefly because of the high tension. electric . towers running through the property: State authorities have been here to inspect the new site, which is high, picturesque and rolling and contains some of the best land for diversified farming. The site begins at the river and runs south on both sides of the Britton road to the school house, thence south, thence east to the river, along the river northerly to the village limits, comprising about 1,400 acres. It takes in the two Finch' farms, the Smith, Jordan, Rouse. Nichols, Jaroslawski, Edward DePuy, Barreith, Haas, Galish and Shaw properties. The .New York Central officials have been in conference with statt authorities for some time in regard to a spur track to be built. Officials and engineers for the railroad were here again on Monday. It may be that the state will only want a small spur and place its power and heating plant near the track and conduct the heat south to the site by conduits tc serve the different units. It will require two years to build and equip the hospital and the institution would result in nearly doubling the size of Saline. Dozens of nice new homes would have to be built here, postoffiee facilities would be increased and all in all it would make for general prosperity for everybody concerned. It is stated that this is the most beautiful site offered and has many advantages not found in other localities, and in addition is very near Ann Arbor's medical college-and hospitals. Every effort should be made by all to further the location of this big in 3titution here. There are too many possibilities involved for the future prosperity of the village not to do so DOLORES DEL RIO MAKES BEARS PALS Movie Star Has Bruins 'Eat From Her Toes Not to Say Hands in Film. How would you like to walk arm in arm with a 750 pound bear? That's what you will see Dolores Del Rio doing in "Revenge," which comes to the Liberty theatre for Saturday and Sunday. In this latest Edwin Carewe production which stars the Mexican actress, she is seen with as many as 50 bears at one time. The story centers, about the taming of wild bears by the gypsies and Dolores is the chief bear trainer of the tribe. The average person would think twice before letting a bear kiss hi:- or her lips. However, that is nothing for Dolores. One scene shows the fiery little star with two bears eating raisins stuck between her toes< And that isn't all. She tames wild bears as though they Were kittens.* She tried to tame a man the same way—and failed. You will see how it all happened when you visit the theatre and watch Dolores Del Rio do her stuff in "Revenge." SAY LIVESTOCK DOES BETTER ON WARM WATE-l Good feeders have long recognized the value of liberal quantities of water to all classes of livestock, says a prominent research department. Hogs "do better" and are more thrifty, and cows give more milk when they drink freely. One justification of the old slopping method of feeding hogs was the fact that it encouraged them to drink great amounts of water. Experiment station tests and farm experience have established beyond question the value of warm water for stock during winter weather. In one -test with fall pigs, the use of automatic heated waterers saved .1 per pig in feeding costs. A cow producing five gallons of milk a day will drink about 20 gallons of water. If she is compelled to drink that amount of ice water, much of her energy is required to heat it to body temperature, and her production suffers. Tank heaters and automatic waterers help solve the problem of worm water in winter. Some of the automatic waterers can be used to heat water in cold weather and to keep it cool in summer. In the good old days the city slickers drove out into the country and sold lightning rods to the farmers, much to the disgust of the latter when the series of notes given in pa?/ ment fell due at the town bank Now it seems they've reversed the old order of things, all except the notes, robbers slipping out of the city last week and stealing the lightning rods , off the Charles Ginnebaugb farm east of Collins. Indications are that somebody drove a truck up to the barn, hitched onto the grounded end of the rods and tore them loose. The value of the rods is said to be in the copper they contain.—Ionia News A flock of sheep belonging to Mr. Guenther, who lives on the Ben Feldkamp farm between here and Manchester, were badly mangled this week when dogs got into the Sock. •fhree were dead, four had to be killed and eighteen were brought to the barn and are expected to die. The dogs have not been found.—Clinton Local.
