savings banks in the country at the
same time amounted to $2,51)7,000,000.
The savings banks of the woril had
$8.1)08,340.000, representing 6"j 00J
aeponiiors. 1 be -average individual
account for the world was $141.24.
The average individual account for
the United States was $480.30. It
should be said in a time of prosper
ity, very truly says the Indianapolis
News, that no habit is more valuable
to cultivate than the habit of saving.
Prosperity avails a man nothing un
less with it he has strength of char
acter to save in proportion. Dickens
has a character in one of his books
that every time he prospers treats
himself, so to say; indulges himself
with some extra expenditure as a re
ward. That is likely to be a tendency
with too many. It is the old truism
about prosperity being more difficult
to stand than adversity. No man can
prosper that does not spend less
than he makes. He cannot greatly
proper unless increasingly he spends
less proportionately than he makes.
While money making is a positive
achievement as much us the creation
of anything is, frugality is something
that need wait on no gift, but may
be practiced by all. Whether a man
be rich or poor, whether he be gift
ed mentally or emotionally or be dull
there is for everyone in this life the
lesson of self-denial to learn, and as
this life is au exceedingly practical
thing, the basis of self-denial might
almost be said to lie in material sav
ings. Where a man has not the abil
ity to increase his income he should
decrease his outgo. He that does
this will soon begin to get a margin.
The process of saving is slow, but it
is sure. It can literally work won
ders, and once started it grows like
the rolling snowball. The smnllncss
at the beginning should be no dis
couragement. There is an opportun
ity for the man that can save ten
cents a week as well as for the man
that can save ten dollars a week. The
way is long, and to begin with nay
be difficult, but persistence in it
makes it easy. Life is more a mat
ter of habit than of intention and the
habit of thrift can as easily be culti
vated as the habit of prodigality.
The American Humane association,
which is a federation of the societies
for the prevention of cruelty to chil
dren and animals, is pushing ita work

cruelty to children investigated and

f About seven-eighths of the whole
country are without any organized ef
fort to prevent cruelty and it is calcu
lated that if the proportion of cases
is the same in the seven-eighths as in

THE CONGRESSIONAL CANVASS.
There have been but few important
developments in the several contest
for Republican nominations for con

between Congressman Mahon and for

honors is becoming Interesting and
both candldatea are on the go through

of the Delaware-Chester district, has
been assured of renomlnation without
opposition and Congressman Wanger,
of Bucks and Montgomery, says he is
not the least concerned over the sug
gestion' of a new man being taken up
for his place.
While there has been some litigation
regarding the right of the chairman of
the Beayer county committee to refuse
to allow Congressman Acheson to reg

the supporters of Acheson predict that
he will ultimately be named to succeed
himself. On the other hand Lawyer

ernatorial race has practically boon re
duced to a struggle between three com
petitors for the Republican nomina

lines and the champions of the rival
aspirants are kept busy watching the
game of their opponents and striving
for advantage at every point

two of those who bad been mentioned
among "the homo favorite," but who
were never regarded as dangerous fac

torney James B. Holland, of Mont
Sproul had been honored with an In
dorsement from his county convention
and the delegates to the state conven
tion from Delaware were instructed to
vote for him. He concluded that he
was not to be considered seriously by
the state leaders and withdrew in a
letter In which he said he hoped the
movement to harmonize the party
would be successful. The delegates
from Delaware afterward met and In
dorsed Judge Pennypacker for gov
ernor. Mr. Holland, recognizing that
he, too, bad no show, did not allow his
name to go before the Montgomery

Luzerne county was a storm center
last week when former Lieutenant
Governor Watres' admirers in the first
Luzerne district comprising the city of
Wilkesbarre, challenged Mr. Elkln to a
public debate. The "Indiana county
plow boy" promptly accepted the chal
lenge and the debate took place on Fri
day night before, an audience of several
thousands. The candidates avoided
personalities, but each made a spirited
address, in which he set forth his
claims for the nomination. Mr. Elkln's
address dwelt largely upon the devel
opments in the political situation which
led up to Sonator Quay's request that
he retire from the race. He reiterated
bis determination to continue in the
canvass until the state convention shall
name its candidates and demanded that
the people be given an opportunity to
express their preferences at the pri
maries in the gubernatorial canvass;
