Going; Into Debt.
One often bears It said that a man
must go Into debt before he can pet
head In the world. Tut tn another
way, It Is Haled that debts are
needed to stimulate Industry and
thrift, and many examples arc cited
of successful men who have made
money through borrowing monry.
In business, going Into debt Is the
rule rather than the exception, he
cause the amount of capital needed
varies from tlirce to time, and the
usual practice f to secure an ad
vance to be repaid out of anticipated
revenues. Men also go into debt
when they buy property with' de
ferred , payments represented by
mortgage or other evidence of debt,
which really means, bowever,v that
only a part Interest Is purchased with
the privilege of buying the remain
But, individually, moat people who
have bad experience with debt bur
dens try their beat to avoid such
obligations. Going Into debt may be
an Incident to the conducting of suc
cessful business, but going Into deht
for personal expenses la a costly and
unsatisfactory habit. Where going
Into debt reflects living beyond one's
means, where the debt represents
waste or luxury, or consuming to-
i morrow's sustenance todny, It usu
ally becomes a 'dead weight impossi
ble to shake off. It is like a rolling
snowball that growa larger from ac
cretions faster than It melts. Going
Into debt to meet the expenses of
sickness or misfortune, or .Involun
tary idleness Is bad enough, but going
Into debt willfully, with eyes open
and no assurance of speedily getting
out from under, Is many tlmea worse.
What the haudlcap of debt is should
be impressed upon the mind of every
child In the home and at school. The
road that begins with debt too often
ends In the poorhouse or the ceme
tery, and freedom from debt Is worth
more In peace of mind than riches.
Some Peculiar Notions.
Many Intelligent people who ought!
to know better apparently entertain
some very peculiar notions about the
function of the newspaper.
Some of these people have a no
tion that the newspaper la a free
carryall, under some obligation of
unwritten law to open Its columns
without price to all their fads and
hobbles, and even their abuse. They
write letters to the editor calling him
every vll name they can think of,
and if be refuses to give publicity to
their outpouring Imagine they have a
Others write long-winded resolu
tions, or frame up lotubastlc procla
mations, and instead of printing
them as dodgers or circulars lit their
own expense, call upon tho 'newspa
pers to pay out good money to put
them In type, and bring them to tho
attention of tlie public.
Some deluded people have the Idea
that by associating two or three like
mluded individuals together under
some high-sounding name professing
a public purpose, they thereby acquire
a right to supplant the editor of the
paper without first a quiring Its own
ership. Many other misguided persons fall
utterly to draw the Hue between !
what Is news and what Is advertising
and think they should have unlim
ited space for their own profit or no
toriety, which a merchant would
have to pay for at so much per line
or per inch.
We submit that a newspaper owes
a duty to the public, but it does not
owe unv duty of self-abnegation to
self-seeking correspondents. When
a paper U enllHted In a good cause
it has a right to go about accomplish
ing Its purpose In its own way with
out submitting to unsolicited dicta
tion of self-constituted interlopers,
and ao far as The Bee Is concerned
It proposes to proceed along these
lines In the future ns It has In the
College and Farmer Bov.
The point ha been made thut the
farm Is permanently losing too many
of its boys who go to college. Am
bltloua nurtured there, lead them
into tho city when they have finished
their course aud the farm, which
needs tbeiu, must look elsewhere for
recruits. It it could get them from
the. city In sufficient number the
interchange might be, undoubtedrc
wouhl be, wholesome to our national
life.. Tho city lad has much the
country needs and the farmer's boy
is a tonic to urbauity. If the buck-to-tbo-furmera
could figure out a way
to atrlke a balance between these
they certainly would be doing well.
It Is apparent, of course, that the
boy turns his buck on the farm aud
his face to the city because tho city
bus more attruttlons that appeal to
the adventurous youth. The boy In
college has longed for wealth, or
power, or position and he has con
ceived the notion that he can get
them iu the city, but not in tho coun
try. With his diploma, therefore, he
hastens off for town. Later in life be
may hunt his way back to the farm,
but the promoters of this cutirprUe
are doubtless correc t In aaylug it Is
not safe to depend on bis return.
. . But hat is to be done? Surely
the country boy must not be made to
give up college or university. The
nation needs the educated farmer
boy. The remedy does not lie In de
terring him from seeking a higher
education, but rather iu trying to
equalize mote nearly the nttractlve
I i.ess of life on the farm and In the
I 14t hv a natural nrnins. I'nr It was
a naluntl process that sent the boy
from the farm to the city in the first
place. Formerly tho economic pros
perity of the farm was not as great
ts It Is today. Then v.e nre not
vexed with tbie problem. It comes,
then, along with a lot of others In
the natural development of the coun
try. So the trend of modern improve
ment the newspaper, the telephone,
hv library, the automobile, the
good road, dally mail deliveries
these for example. Is steadily mov
ing toward the farm. In time It will
attract more and in the current of
migration It will, undoubtedly, bring
back many young men who left tho
farm by way of the college. Mean
time the numerous agricultural col
leges are pouring out not only coun
try boys, but town boys, as well, Into
the rural communities, fitted with
scientific knowledge to make practi
cal tillers, of the soil.
Again, the Good Old Timet.
A writer In the St. Louis Ulob
Democrat recently deplored the pass
ing of the good old log-cabin days,
of which he said:
If one suffered It u a second nature
fur all others to offer the baud of fra
ternal kindness. If perils came, ail
rallied to the defense. In the log cabin
home there wera times tvhen not a cent
of money could be ratted, but there were
forms of wealth there that will glorify
log cabins for nil tinio and make them
worthy of enshi Inement beyond anything
Identified with tlm Parthenon.
Tho Christian Science Monitor,
agreeing with this fine senttmeut as
far! as it goes, adds:
They ero days of Independence. Ths
Individual never cmim nearer kingship
In the t'niled States than ho did when
all the natural resources of a new coun
try danced attendance upon Ii1m in the
backwoods. He could ,draw upon land,
forest, nir or stream at his full pleasure,
and hla drafts were honored, lie could
come or so. with no one to let or hinder.
The world seemed to be all his; at least,
as much of It wis bin as he could con
veniently make use of." He had neither
purse nor anything to put In It; yet he
had no need of money, for everything
within sight was his, to be had for the
But the Monitor draws the prac
tical lesson, out of this beautiful
rhapsody teat men grew too' big for
log cabins and found place and pre'
ferment elsewhere. It might have
said that even as to the freedom, In
dependence and lordship of man, in
hla kingly sway over nature and -all
Its elements, it was not half as great
then as It is now. Then the elements
ran unbridled, largely, whereas to
day they are harnessed by the con
quest of man and ridden or driven
in submission to his conquering will
Where was your hydraulic and elec
trie power, your electric aud gas
lights, your oil as fuel and your air
compressed Into power in the Rood
old days? Man' is king aiifl a king
is free. Man roves not only amid the
kindly companionship of .these
mighty elements of nature, but he
rules them, he holds them In domin
ion under his genius and his will
Wealth is not the only distinction be
tween the present and the past and
the long-ago need lose none of its
fancy and form to round out the

Affinities and Common Sense.
Dr. Uobert C. Auld, the originator
of the "Human Welfare as a Science"
craze, calls ou this nation to con
serve lis cltUenship, as it docs Its
forests and mineral resources. He
la abashed at the profligacy with
which we throw away tho opportuni
ties of building up a stronger race.
He scoffs at our philanthropic efforts
at reurlng better breeds of horses
and cattle and preaches the impor
tance of eugenics at us.
Like all other scientists in that
groove. Dr. Auld has his own pan
aceu for the cure of this uutional de
ficiency. It Is affinity. "Affinity, far
from being a thing to bo despised
and discouraged, is the condition
that every human being anxious to
make for higher standards in the sex
relations should strive for," he says.
"Affinity is the perfect condition of
the humau relationship."
Aud every husband should be his
wife's affinity aud vice verse. So far
so good. But the doc tor must admit
the presence of one or two little ob
stacles In the way of this beautifu:
Idealism. If every youth and ever)
maiden were" eudowed with tho
genius of supernatural foresight and
would act upon what that occult
sense made plain, then. Indeed, this
eugenic Ideal might be easily real
Ued, but bow many, oh, how mauy,
men aud women are deprived of this
divine attribute! How many love
sick pairs honestly believe they have
made the only choice and yet wake
up some day to learn that they could
scarcely have made a worse one!
The state, the parents, suxkcbU
the doctor. No, neither the state
nor the parents couid do It abso
lutely though they might help for
they do not possess this faculty to
penetrate the future and discern
what It holds. And, theu. there in
that obstinute little cherub, Dan
Cupid he always has had his own
uay In such matters aud he probably
always will. Try to talk to hlut on
the subject of eugenics when he is
negotiating one of bis matches and
see how far you coma to "fixing"
blm. There is nothing quite as per
verse as the mlud of a uiau or
woman in love.
Common seube, it strikes us, Is a
muc h more reliable and dependable
element in such cases than this in
tangible something they call affinity.
Let parents continue to exercise all
the sane influence they can In such
matters and let the state do what it
ran to head off mlsmated pairs and
obstruct th marriage of defectives
that Is well, but it Is asking a good
deal at the outset to require each
person to find an affinity before he
weds. The truth is that affinities
may be made; that is, with passions
suppressed, with common sense and
the determination to found a happy
and substantial family altar, two per
pons can get along all right without
being what you might call affinities,
or become such, without making" the
race suffer for it, either.
The Man with the Money.
The all too commou habit to rail
against the man with money le
largely the result of thoughtlessness.
If people took the time to stop and
think of this man's Indispensabillty
In every ordinary sphere of llfo they
would be less likely to indulge this
tendency. Wealth In itself is not a
fault and should not suffer the bane
of wrong. Prosperity, far from
being evil, per se, is tho purveyor of
untold righteousness. Capital and
labor, as factors in the Industrial
and social life, are Interdependent,
and when they are not permitted to
co-operate it la because of an ex
traneous fault somewhere.
Many a crown has been laid upon
the brown brow of honest toil, and
deservedly so. It is easy to praise
the thoroughgoing and thrifty la
borer. Why, because it is popular?
Well, It Is right, but at the same time
the meed of praise should not be de
nied the honest man of wealth. Men
may play to popular prejudice all
they please in railing against the
mau'with money, but they do it un
thinkingly or insincerely. Commerce
depends on him, industry follows his
lead, untitled territory Is broken up
and new lands colonized by him,
homes are established, towns and
cities and mills and factories and
railroads built and maintained, and
likewise schools and churches.
But does labor not play its part?
Of course, it does, and it gets Us
credit for so doing, but too often cap
ital goes without its credit. Our
commercial club or chamber of com
merce, in Its effort to build up the
city, lays out plans for Inviting and
securing new Industries. It spends
much time devising ways and means
of Inducing capital tho man with
the money to como and cast his lot
In the city. And every department of
the city's life is correlated with this
effort. If taxes get out of kilter, or
the civic management of the mu
nicipality goes too far wrong, or vice
become rampant, or unsanitary con
ditions run riot, the first thing one
hears is, "That will repel capital."
But the appeal does not end with
business. It ts sounded by education,
by charity, by even religious enter
prises, themselves. Charity and the
church may not unduly exalt the rich
man, but they are pleased when he
decides to favor their enterprise. It
Is giving no ill or sinister aspect to
say that thai college, the church and
I eneficent institutions always seek
tho friendship and support of the
man with the money. ' .
No one denies that this is right.
But what Is all wrong is for people
to humor prejudice against wealth as
wealth, which ts not a prejudice at
all, but ofteu a sordid sort of envy,
to nurture which fosters the worst
kind of class feeling, that has no
place iu the life of this country. ,
