I have not since 19d8 seen so Many a to let Quot signs on stores in new York a it right now. There Are those who believe Tine i All this is psychological that All we need to do is to say that All is Well and that folks will begin spending again.

It Means More Cash without even a strike some Wise men say this is bad tile worker will not immediately spend the Money hell save it. How stupid can great men be sine when is Thrift a sin what do men do when they save they put their savings in some kind of a Bank which Loans Hie Money out to it create new wealth. So whether a fellow Goe out and buys a pint it whiskey or a toy for baby or an imitation Mouton or whatever the women Call it for Mamma or be j puts it in the savings Bank that Money is working and Confidence is restored.
