AlthoiiRli tho United States Is today
upon a solid gold basis, wo neverthe
less know of our own knowleilgo what
Inflation means. It
would tako Ions to
recall In detail tho
which this nation
suffered during tho
Civil War and the
yetrs which follow
ed It, and in our
present easy condi
tion wo might think

arlso. But with ouch men as Henry
Ford nnd Thomas A. Edison talking
about commodity money thore Is no
forotolllng what may happen.
Ono of Uio plainest lessons taught by
financial hl3tory Is that whonover a
nation Issues paper money with noth
ing back of It, that nation Is on thy
road to disaster. Look at Russia with
Its worthless rubles and Germany
with Its worthless marks. Think ol
what happened In Franco during tho
years Immediately following our Revo
Tho common people of Franco rose
In their might, tore down tho Bastlle,
nnd made reprisal for centuries of
kingly crltno and oppression. The
profligate court had piled up taxes un
til they wore unbearable The en
raged populaco killed King Louis XVI,
and nlso his queen, Mario Antoinette.
But they only threw themselves out
of the frying pan Into Uio flro so far,
as finances wcro concerned.
Unsound Money Tyranny
At tho very worst point of their cur
rency Inflation they found themselves
under tho absolute domination ol
Robespierre In order to meet the
growing scarcity of coin, paper mono;
callod asslgnats woro issued. First
400,000.000 francs worth, then 800.000,
000 wcro added with tho distinct un
derstandlng that tho 1,200,000,000
would bo tho full extent of tho issue
This pledgo was soon broken and fur
ther Issues brought tho total up to
Frightful depreciation was the In
evitable result: and legislation waa
passed making It a crime, with
years' Imprisonment as the penalty,
any one should refuse to take the pa
per asslgoata at their face value. Just
think of ltt A French peasant, after
working the entire year to produce 'a
crop was compelled by law to accept
payment for that crop In paper mon
ey, which-ho know to bo, worthless, or
go to prison. r .,
- it wbb simply legalized ,robbery
When tho penalty waa, Increased tf1
twenty yoars Imprisonment tho Inovi
table climax came. Tho Relgn of Ter
ror was at Its height Robosplorre'
wa3 In supremo power. Ho suggested
that more asslgnats bo Issued and If
tho people did not tako them tho gull
lotlno should bo tho penalty.
This unheard of outrago was more
than tho people could stand. An un
known man aroso on the floor of the
convention and denounced Robes
pierre, reciting tho heinous crimes he
had committed, and so worked upon
the feelings of tho audience that
Robespierre, the tyrant, became
Robosplerre, the coavlcted criminal.
Two days later ho was led to the guil
lotine Franco had learned her finan
cial lesson well that money most
hare value back of It
Tho fallacy of unsound money U
sure to confront us again. Never la
there enough of everything for all the
people. Tho struggle for existence la
a real struggle, and thoso who And
themselves In tho lower strata of hu
man society are ready at any time to
grasp at flat money or any ot tho oth
er things which misguided politicians
hold out to them.
My wholo purpose Is to drive home
the fact that danger lies ahead and to
urgo ovory one to let no opportunity
go by to uso voice and influence to
ward keeping tho wampum ot those
United States, as It la today, the
soundest currency In the world.
SOME BANK SALARIES
Investigations mado by tho Missouri
Bankers Association have revealed
that 3G3 banks In tho atato In towns
of undor 2,000 population aro paying
thqlr cashiers and chlof executives an
avorago ot only $110 a month. Only
273 of tho 1,102 reporting banks In
towns under 5,000 population pay tho
presldont a salary. The report says:
"It Indicates that, oven allowing for
tho economy ot living in small com
munities, tho cashiers and managing
ofllcers of thoso 1,162 banks, who re
celvo nn avorago of $140 per month,
olthor must hnvo porsonal moans to
begin with, or must maintain tho
standards necessary to their positions
as tho leaders of their communities and
tho bulldors ot the commonwealth by
means ot 'side lines,' such as selling
insurance, collecting commissions on
