TOO MUCH PROFANITY
rpOO often cussing is tnken as a
matter of course. Men in high
positions nre frequently expert In the
use of profane words, and the influ
ence of bad language has a bad effect
on both the old and the young.
Much effort Is being made to In
crease the use of better English, and
along with this propaganda it would
be well to preach considerable against
the use of bad language.
Directly cussing, unless the name of
the Master Is taken In vnln, may cause
no great damage. But Indirectly It does
much harm. When the little folk henr
their parents swearing, their respect
for thtlr elders Is either lessened or
else the youngsters begin using it
themselves as a matter of course. Not
Infrequently we hear little shavers,
hardly able to speak plainly, using
language which would put many men
nnd women to shnmc.
Pike county, Kentucky, recently
honored the memory of Its oldest citi
zen. Jesse B. Osborne. Much was said
In praise of this departed citizen, who
crossed the bnr at the age of ninety
two years, and no louder prnise was
heard than 'of his reputation for never
having permitted a profane word to
pass from his lips.
Judging from this event, one might
assume that profanity Is the rule rather
than the exception. If this Is the case,
Isn't It about time to call n halt? The
old remedy, considered quite effective
for curing profano habits, was to wash
the boy's mouth with soap. But, from
our observation, we are Inclined to be
lieve that It would be unfair to use
such a remedy to stop youths from

found a way to utilize all
residue from tho distillation of
trolcum. Gasoline, now ono of
chief products of the concern was onco
a by-product. All tho coal tnr de

medicines aro made, are by-products.
Bo are paraflln, candles, and hundreds
of other nrtlcles la every day use.
The Standard Oil company Is a big
concern. It has thousands of tech

It has plants nil over tho world the

Such an Institution can well afford
to go Into tho business of making by

But tho business of developing by
products Is for a corporation, und a
