H SPEAKING OF CORN AND NUMEROUS
B OTHER THINGS.
B You may think you know nil about corn, but
B even agricultural uhnrks of high standing in tho
B experiment stations never knew ns much nbout
B the subject ns this from the pen of Strickland W.
H Corn is used to mnko whisky out of, which
H proves that any good thing can be put to some
B useless or harmful purpose.
B Ono would never think that nn car of corn was
HK full of booze, unless one noticed the prevalence of
MH joints among it.
HSM Green corn on the cob is ono of the best known
K musical instruments. It is a favorite article of
JB food with flute players.
SSV The sound of a fat faced man with false teeth

ing an E-flnt car of corn would drown tho sound
ASS of n tang) party on n loose tin roof.
B The Indians used to raise corn until they were
BBs discovered by white men. Then they turned that
tafafB work ns well as nil other work over to the whKc
Wo understand tho Indians could hardly hold
Sc out till the white men arrived.
SS . Some claim the small corncob is tho best, as
-SaVt the grains run deeper. Others sny it takes more
rB com to go around n large cob. So there you arc.
JH Popcorn is nn cxcitcablo breed of cereal that
.B gels rattled nnd blows up every time it gets hot.

jifH Girls take ndvnntago of this principle in young
Bi men and often try to get them rattled and un
$B comfortably warm enough to pop.
In Kentucky the corn is full of kernels and tho

CITIES ARE ENTITLED TO WHAT IS DUE
&y THEM; SO IS TIE COUNTRY.
HB Plant a more or less largo city in a stato and
kB forever after there is more or less wrangling
K throughout tho rest of tho stato and with tho
,-JB city authorities themselves as to the rights,
' B standing, advantages, menaces nnd worthless
. ''SBm ness of said city. Invariably tho citizens nnd
HB citizencsses of the city think the stato couldn't
, H get along without their town, whilo the nntlycs
ffB of the rest of tho sUto firmly bclievo that they
B could very well prosper without having the
H metropolis within their state borufirfl.
jB -iv ." depends on tho po'nt of view, of course;
H, but fteogmplticnl limitations seem to determine
Bv tho viewpoint to n nlcoty. What to tho metro-
B politanlto Is i womlorful achievement to other
citizens of tho statu npPArft JiloflyuVio nnd-mlcro-
B scoplc. What to thO rural or small burg dweller
BBV makes a nolso llko fine crops is beneath notice to
bybybV tho hi tr town norson.
BV Tho Pftn, distrust applies to government.
BBb Scarcely a largo city in tho country that is not
BBV situated in n stato that is profoundly jealous re
HH gnrding its influcnco with the legislature, and
4 JB scarcely a largo city that docs not believe its just
t 1 powers in tho legislature nro curtailed by coun
ts K try representation.
B Perhaps the truth lies in the prcmiso that un
. BBbI dor no circumstances'should n largo city be por
0 ,'Bfl mittcd to "run" the stato in which it is situated,
BB an(i by n slmllnr token no stato should attempt
BBV t "run" its largo city or cities. As part of the
B state, the city of course, is amenable to its laws.
BB Hut that doesn't mean that tho stato should pass
. PBB Iaws fr tno Prnn0 purpose of "getting at" the
3 B city, except when the end desired is n reasonable
BS In a way, the Inrgo cities in a stato bear tho

M GOODWIN'S WEEKLY DISCUSSES THE
' BBM CASE OF "BABY BOLLINGER."
B In an article on the publicity given the "Baby
, B Bollinger" case, that of the defective Infant who
B wns flowed to die in Chicngo recently becnuse
'BB Dr -f'dsclden, a Chicago physician, refused to
B operate in nn effort to save its life, the latest
B number of tho Journal of the American Medical
B association mnkos some trite remarks which will
''BB k endorsed by n large number of those familiar
HB wUU tl10 hiside details which did not appear
' '' ,HB when tho matter wns so extensively advertised
BBV "h over the country.
' 'JB When the enso wns first discussed in the news-
,B papers, it was not a new idea to thinking people,
. 'Bl m08t whom nro of the belief that hopeless de-
BBB fectives should bo allowed to die nt birth. But
,B subsequent events liavo proven that this doctor
' BBB '8 nothing but a sensntionnl advertiser, his
'.v. BBBf 8j)ecch at tho recent performance of "Tho Un-
b born" in Now York, which had as its theme tho
BBB problcn. of defective infants, proving tho con
H tcntion that ho was not actuated by a desire to
start n propaganda to benefit humanity but one
in which the benefits would accrue to Dr. Hniscl
den wns true. The technical report of the mal
formation of tho body as disclosed by the rec
ords of the coroner's office may not bo published
here. Suffice to say that it would hnve been ut
terly impossible to save the life of the defective
and the doctor knew it when ho broke into print.
In reference to the nauseating publicity caused
by tho affair, the Journal of tho American Medi
cal association says: "Sensational medical ar
ticles in newspapers have become a common
everyday occurrence. Pathology is now n break
fast table topic and tho science of eugenics agi
tates the fluttering breasts of stately matrons
nnd young debutantes nt afternoon teas. Tie
most recent sensation concerns the action of n
Chicago physician rcgnrdlng an infant marred
by various anomalies of development. The news
papers fentured the case; they elaborated it witl
gossip and discussion; with opinions from physi
cians; with the statements of social workers nnd
psychologists; with letters of mothers nnd even
of crippled nnd imbecile children. And the end
is not yet. Ono newspaper publishes nn auto
biography of the physician, who promises to
write, in serial form, the story of the case.
"The whole incident is nnuseatlng. Infnnts
with similar nnomalics nrc bom nlmost daily; no
two cases nrc exactly alike; each is a problem
unto itself. In this instance, apparently, the
rights of tho individual hnve been flippantly con
sidered nnd the snercdness of tho home has been
ruthlessly bandied in public. Nothing has been
nor can anything ever bo gained by such dis
gusting discussion ns has accompanied this par
ticular incident. Ono person has been basking
in tho limelight of publicity, but in this instance
it is not the brightness of the spotlight but n
yellow Bickiy flame."
It would seem to us that the only real argu
ments ngainst physicians nttempting to save the
lifo of defectives may be found in tho possibility
of mnking n mistake or in those cases where a
practitioner of criminal bent could take advan
tage of the opportunities he would hnve if the
prnctlco were made general.
Lifo is one foolish subject nftcr another.

When Edwnrd Payson Ripley, president of tho
Santa Fc, was given n dinner in honor of his
seventieth birthdny recently, ho nuulo a speech
in which ho gnvo credit to his wifo for his suc

ly fit to ndvanco in the world, he said, nnd with'
out her he wouldn't have amounted to muchj
This ndmission puts Ripley 'hend nnd shoulders
bovo most men, who wonft ndmit the truth.
Tn a long editorial headed, "Financing De
fense," tho Washington Post, only democratic
paper of tho national capital, insists thnt it is up
to President Wilson to find a way of raising
money nnd declares that bonds nro tho only sal
vation. Tho Sun can suggest n far better way.
Just go ahead and npproprlnto the money nnd
pay it out of tho treasury surplus, like tho re
publicans paid for tho Pannma cnnnl. What
could be simpler?
Selfishness kills more towns thnn nny other
caufic. When you find a town where its business
men look only to their own aggrandizement
look for tho wrltingon the wall for it is doom
ed. No place yet has ever prospered unless its
citizens went' to work upon n universal platform
of tho greatest good for tho greatest number.
One-eyed idens won't win. Neither will a selfish
desire to monopolize somo lino of business. Work
together for the common good, for unless your
own town prospers you can't prosper.

ford. But then, he' isn't a highbrow! Ho can't
piny tho piano. Ho can't sing. Ho ain't tell
whv ono plcturo Is finer thnn another. He doesn't
do the modem dances. He knows nothing about
tho new thought. Ho's nwny below par when it
comes to tho latest way to shake hands. His

home as soon ns possible. I hnvcn'Lgot n very
cultured husband in somo ways, but I'm very

Yes, there is somo disparity in the cost of liv
ing nowadays nnd the figures ninety years ago.
Also, there is considerable difference in the
prices fanners received for their products. But
then, maybe they didn't require much money In
thoso dnys. An old "counter look" of nn Ohio
store wns found recently. It contained figures
of ninety yenrs back. Eggs then sold at four
cents per dozen) butter, eight cents a pound;
sjigar, ten cents n pound; pepper, fifty cents n
pound; coffee, thirty-one cents a pound; ten,.
Sl.CO a pound; bacon, six cents a pound; whisky,
twenty-five cents n gallon; oats, fifteen cents n
bushel; wheat, forty cents n bushel; corn, twenty-five
cents n bushel; muslin, twenty cents and
37V cents n yard; calico, thirty-six cents nnd
fifty cents a yard; flowered wallpaper, 4V cents
n yard; salt, 2' cents a pound.
Not only hns tho cost of dying increased, but
the speed with which one is yanked to the grave
has greatly improved since tho Introduction of
tho nutomobilo nenrsc. In Chicngo several auto
mobile hcarso drivers hnvo been fined for break
ing the speed Inws while hurrying to the ceme
teries. The object of the henrse people wns to
uso tho same hcarso for three or four funerals
n day, where formerly one wns tho limit.
