THERE IS A BONE IN THE WAY
The world is tired of war. It wants peace-plenty of peace--uiniersal
i perpetual peace-or at least a majority of us do. But will we achieve
desires? Let us consider.
A hungry (log will always make a live for a juicy bone. It is the natur:
the brute. It will never change. And some (logs are always hungry.. Na
ns are much like dogs. World commerce is their juicy bone. They are all
er it. They will never cease to seek it as long as international relations
st. There will never be perpetual peace between dogs, beause wherever
!re is a bone there is an objet of strife and contention.
We doubt if there will ever be universal peace among the nations of',the
'th as long as the commercial bone exists, because strife and contention is
.erent in mankind just as it is in tle dog.
There is little (iference between the law of human nature and that of
t brute creation. Each wants the bone, and sooner or later they will light
gain or retain control of it. Universal peace is a beautiful dream and we
latly desire to see it. But a dream is a reality only while it lasts. We
y rejoice in the peace of today, but today is never a guarantee for the
rrow. There is a hone in the way.
TwENTY-FI'vE M1ILES AN HOUR
In Illinois they are trying to pass a law requiring that every automobile
equipl)ed with a device that automatically prevents a car from going at a
ater rate of speed than twenty-five miles an hour. It would be well if
h a law could be enacted in every state. Twenty-five miles is a good rate
speed. It is fast enough for any autimobile to go. It is even too rapid
some of our drunken motorists.
If the driver of a car were headed straight for the grave, and knew it, he
uld step on the brake, or pull the emtergency. Twenty-tive miles an hour
uld throw him into a panie. lie would want to crawl, to emulate the snail

kidney trouble about three years ago
which started with smart pains
through the small of my back. Head
aches bothered me a good deal, and
sometimes I was so nervous I couldn't
hold anything in my hand. I was
bothered with dizzy spells, too, and
black specks often came before me, in
