How domagogues nro using falso
doctrines of so-called "sound nmnoy"
to glvo themnelvea or tho class they
represent unfair .dvantages at tho
oxponso of roat producers Is exposed
in tho Journal of tho American Hank
oro Association by II. Parker Willis,
export on tho money question.
"Thero Is no subject in whoso namo
moro crimes against truth have been
committed than that of 'sound cur
rency,'" Mr Willis says. "Tho term
Is always resorted to by domagogues.
At tho present moment thero seems
to ho a danger that It will bo used
by a potential presidential candldato
ns roptescntlng the 'platform upon
which ho expects to run. There Is
no question that moro nenrly and di
rectly touches tho Immediate welfare
of every class in the community."
Purpose of Money
Primary functions of money anil
curroncy, it Is explained, aro to servo
as a means of exchanging goods and
as a hum ui of maeurlng tho valuo
of goods. Mr. Willi; continues:
"Demagogues and thane who aro
disponed In mislead tho public for
various ulterior ro-:u have suc
ceeded in disseminating an ontlroiy,
dlffcrcnt view of tl. purpose of
money. Ho; u of t.'i m contend that
tho sound nt or best currency is that
which it 'i arrn-i v-d aa to bring
about a '. . rnli.tr. ution of wealth.
They win' i -v -i ly depreciating
currency-. wbiih keeps playing
Into tho IlmiIm of tho seller of goods,
by enabling hi-n to count contldently
upon higher prices In terms of money
so that ho piys the producer from
whom he h".. obtained them less and
less. IT IS A STKANCSK TIUNtl
THAT THIS KIN';) OK CUUUKNCY
IS OFTEN HIGHLY PRAISED OH
rAVOiu:.) isY "Min PuonuoEit
IllMS i: 1. V. NOTWITIISTANDINll
THAT HE IS THE (1REATEST SUE
FEltER FROM IT."
Thero Is another popular view ol
sound currency which alms to basu
It upon "natural products" or "nat
ural forces" usually It Is true, speci
fying products or forces which havu
boon monopolized or can be con
trolled by tho advocate of such cur
rency. Thus from Cum to time there
have been scheme t'o issiiii a cur
roncy baaed upon or protected by
farm products stend In warehouses
or occasionally representing "units ol
energy" or hone power.
The rulers of Soviet Russia at ona
time attempted to introduce a cur
rency rcprcncntlnn "labor time," each,
man recehlng a t'-.eck representing
tho number of lioeri of time ho bail
put In at work, while goods them
selves were to bo valued In terms o!
hours of production time. Thus onq
man who put In an hour's time Iti
stroot cleaning received tho same
control over goods as ho whe put In
an hour'B time at surgery. Tho
theory was that this kind of "sound"
currency enabled tho "poor man" ta
got a largor supply of goods.
"The trouble wns that when those
who could perform a certain kind of
labor were not paid in proportion to
their effort they stopped making
goods. So it was not very long In
Russia boforo tho sound currency,
which was issued In favor of thq
poor man hnd brought It about that
tho poor man could not buy anything
with tho currency. This wns an un
fortunate kind of 'soundness.' Wo
do not want something liko It In tho
United Statos today, yet very slml
lnr proposals nro now being mndo In
a good many quartern that ought to
know better," says Mr. Willis.
FACTS ABOUT CHECKS

fin winter wheat, so far as tho tnoi6
line supply Is concerned, is in hotter
c. mutton than usual. Also, rail pas.
turcs have been nicely revived aud the
state will go Into, winter quarters with
us blight an outlook for the forth
coml year as could bo hoped for.
Probably the favorable conditions
for planting will result In a larger acre
Hgo of wheat than had been antlclpat
ed, but we do not believe this will be
siitlleienl to overcome the determina
tion of a groat many farmers to ro.
duco their wheat acreage for next year.
Kansas reports that, whereas the ac
reage of winter wheat in that state in
1910 was 11,000,000 acres, it will pro
bahly bo not more tlinn 9,000,000 next
year. We anticipate that the reduct
ion in Nebraska will bo between 10 and
l.r percent, compared with n reduction
of 'in per cent last year over tho year
We hope this will come to pass, for
there mo many crops that can bo
giown more profitably, year In and
year out, in Nebraska than wheat.
This was abundantly proven this year,
and It should encourage u funnel in
crease in dlversltled farming and live
stock raising that will maUo for a moro
permauont aud prolltiiblu agriculture.
