JAPAN'S SILENT HERO.
Admiral Togo, who has just left our territory with the good will and
affection of the entire country save perhaps, Mr. Hobson has never In
all his life spoken as many words as Senators La Follette or Bailey will
produce In the course of an average day. But this doesn't mean that the
Japanese hero, whose fame ranks with that of the gallant Nelson, Is less
progressive than the esteemd Senators. Not at all. The difference be
tween the admiral and the Senators is that he Is a dealer in actions whilo
they deal In a Senatorial commodity known as " words."
All of which goes to prove that the man who does is never a talker.
He is a doer.
Still, Togo can be more eloquent than the Senators, when he wishes.
Witness his speech to the spirits of the dead of his own command at the
Aoyama cemetery. But on that occasion, there came to pass an Incident
much more eloquent than even his memorable speech. The Admiral took
a child by the hand, a child whose father had died In battle; "Come," said
he, "for I am going to talk to your father." And his eyes filled as those
of a woman. The Admiral Indeed Is more famous for his love for chil
dren than for his victories among those who know him well.
" m y WHAT BECOMES OF THE GOLD?
The average citizen sees little gold. Probably most of us are so un
familiar with It that we would have to look closely at a gold coin to make
sure whether it was of five, ten, or twenty dollar value. Possibly the
average citizen has a gold watch and his wife may own a ring or two.
And yet 500,000,000 dollars' worth of new gold comes into the world every
year. At least half of this is colnod, and the other half is used Industrial
ly, watches, rings, brooches, bracelets, etc., etc.
What becomes of this huge amount? Why doesn't the average cltt
zeii see more of it?
It is said that most of the raw gold goes to five or six London re
finers, no matter to what use It Is put after It leaves their refineries.
Thus about a third to ahalf passes into Industry. Of the rest, which
Is coined Into money, a very large proportion finally reaches the great
government banks. Thus, In the ten years from 1900 to 1910, of a total
production of $3,800000,000, more than $1,800,000,000 went to swell
these reserves, Increasing them from $2,400,000,000 to nearly $4,400,
000,000. And If to the government banks or treasuries wo add the great
credit establishments of the whole world, we find that a very .small propor
tion of the gold mined finds its way Into the purses of Individuals.
THE POSTAL BANK AS A MEANS TO SAVE MONEY.
To our mind, the best advantage of the new postal saving s system,
which Is to bo established here September loth, is the' opportunity it
gives to the depositor of very small sums to save money. For Instance
one of the regulations reads as follows:
" Amounts less than $1 may be saved for deposit by the purchase
of 10-cent postal-savings cards and adhesive 10-cent postal-savings
stamps. Each postal-savings card contains blank spaces to which savings
stamps may be affixed from tlmo to time as purchased, and a postal-savings
cardw ith nine 10-cent savings stamps thus affixed will be accepted as
a deposit of $1 either in opening an account or in adding to an existing
account." ... ,
tv,,, tho hov or eirl or the man or woman on a small salary who
wants to start a savings account but
the first dollar saved, can purchase a
and stick the ten cent postal-savings
.iioc nf.m,,intf. until he eets his
open his account. Of course the small depositor can put his dimes in a
cup or a toy bank, Just as well, but there is always the possibility that
something will turn up that he may want to buy, and away goes the little
savings But with the cards and stamps the temptation Is not as strong
and If he adheres conscientiously to the plan outlined he win De surprise
how fast his account will grow.
in n aomnu.hat. similar way. the same principal applies to this meth
od of saving as applies to the trading stamps, which have had and are
hn..tn ,,pV, n nnwnrful influence on
With the postal system, tho small depositor can watch his dimes
in the forms of stamps grow on the postal card and there is a great
deal of satisfaction In this, as everyone knows who has ever saved money
by this method. ... . ,

Out of fairness to tho traveling
public, the writer wants to ask a few
questions, which has long been un
answered and has always appealed
to patrons of tho Erie railroad as
oelng unfair to them and unfair to
the Honesdale branch of the Erie
railroad and the people living in
Honesdale. I purchased tickets
from Chicago to Honesdalo with
stop-over privileges. I asked the
agent if tho train would stop at
Lackawaxen and he turned to his
tariffs and read from them to me.
I felt assured that all would be well
and purchased my Pullman tickets
expecting to ride through to Lack
awaxen without an interruption.
Much to mv surprise tho conductor
told me when near BInghamton that
tho train upon which' I was riding
did not eton at Lackawaxen, but
that it did ston at Hancock, where
I could change cars and secure trans
portation over tho Ontario and
Western railroad to Carbondale and
from thence over the Delaware and
Hudson to 'Honesdale; or that I
could wait for a local train which
would follow in about ten minutes.
I was muloish and klckod, stating
that I purchased my ticket in Chi
cago with the privilege of stopping
at Lackawaxen and -wanted to know
tho reason why. The conductor
claimed ho didn't know why, but
that was the order. I got off at

day, "It will be such fun to stick em
Hnrirnnk and as the train from which
I alighted was from three to four
hours late, fortunately had but.about
ten minutes' wait.
Tho question which seems unfair
to the people of Honesdale and tho
Rrln railroad itself. Is. why does the
management of the Erie transport
or suggest that its passengers buuh
travel over another road to reach
their destination when the Erie has
n mad of its own coming directly
Into Honesdale? Passengers will
probably go to Scranton or Carbon
dale and remain all night and come
to Honesdale the folowlng morning,
whereas tho Honesdale hotel-keepers
would .be benefited If tho commer
cial travelers could reach Honesdale
that night. 'By doing so they could
save considerable time, it would
also be appreciated by people visit
ing here who come from the West.
Leaving Chicago six hours later
on another road I can arrive In
Honesdale' the samo time by board'
inc Erie No.-2 at Buffalo as if left
Chicago at 11 o'clock. For my part
I cannot see how tho people of
Honesdalo tolerate such treatment.

Scout Masters, who are register
ed for the Boy Scouts of America,
write many letters to headquarters
telling of the development of boys
through the scout activities. They
report that rough boys have been
made gentle, that mischievous boys
have been taught consideration for
others; weak boys encouraged to
take part in athletic exercises, have
grown strong, and that boys general
ly have become more thoughtful at
home and more patriotic.
Because of the good Influence of
the Boy Scout movement, business
men are taking a still greater Inter
est in it. School teachers, profes
sional men and others aro contribut
ing to the work and are urging the
upbuilding of the Scout troops in
their respective towns.
Edward G. Jenkins, Scout Master
of Troop No. 11, Honesdale, Boy
Scouts of America, is highly pleased
witn tne work his twenty boy scouts
have done in the last four or five
months. He is leading the boys
through the various scout activities,
and reports that the boys are follow
ing out the scout program zealously
and eagerly. Though all his boys
are required to work during the sum
mer, they make arrangements to get
away in camp for a week, having
earned the .money for tho expedition.
Jenkins had local doctors teaching
tho boys first aid and was helped by
one who had spent years in the
woods in the northwest. " If,"
writes Jenkins, " I say that tho boys
in a short time have developed far
beyond my expectations and that I
am as proud of them as any mother
could be, am I not telling you
enough of what my boys are doing
constantly and the great Interest
among the people; of the Inveterate
cigarette smokors who have quit the
