Better a Late Vacation Than Never

LABOR DAY is a dividing line. In some families all vacations end when the children go back to school. In others, the opening of school is the signal for Dad and Mother to begin plans for a twosome trip. And in all families, the old-gold and purple of late summer brings again the old urges: to smell wood smoke, while wieners sizzle in the pan and the sun glitters on gold and scarlet leaves; to week-end at haunts especially favored in asters, goldenrod, and fall- struck foliage.

Should Yon Own or Rent?

AH YES. Own, and you are free of moving day, of movers, of looking for a place to live. You can't be ordered to vacate; the landlord can't pound the pipes or remove the bathtub to force you out. You have security; a fit neighborhood for your children; a good investment to tide you over in bad times; the right to fix up and paint up and drive a nail when you want.

New Life for a Centenarian

LONG before we first saw them, Pennsylvania stone houses of pre-Revolutionary vintage stirred our imaginations. Think of actually living in a house more than 100 years old! We had considered them rare museum pieces, "open to the public Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays."

A "rabies scare" will frequently occur in a community, whereupon the local press will rush into print with blatant headlines over a wild and distorted account of how "dozens of infected dogs are running at large" and calling for drastic action to "curb this frightening menace in our midst."

INSURANCE Life Income Pays MORE!

THE big swing to life income as the best way of delivering life-insurance proceeds rests on common sense and human experience. We're better managers of income than of large and unexpected cash legacies. But there's another good reason for income payments. When income is spread over many years the balance to your credit goes right on accumulating interest which swells the total you receive.

August Garden Guide

AUGUST is a good month to get a lot of chores done in the garden. It is still planting time for the vegetable growers. Turnips, carrots, beets, radishes, and lettuce will mature a fall crop in many areas if sown early in August. Green beans are a pretty sure fall crop if frost doesn't come ahead of schedule. Choose a quick-maturing variety. Even peas are a good gamble. They can stand a little frost.
