One fails to see anything fair in such an attitude on part of employers. Organized labor asks only a square deal. Not Backsliders. Wage standards were far too low in 1914.

We met Terence at the door, looking very sheepish and very wretched. I think the Father had word with his priest In Limerick and made him come as a penance for something.

"Say ye8' Terence," I whispered, and he said It quick as a- flash. And the bans had beerj In his name, too, but nobody could fead the Father's writing. I No, I didn't stay for the wedding breakfast. The fact Is, I slipped out through the door before the ceremony was over. But that's how I came to America after all. It happened a long time ago, and well, I've almost for gotten now. THE SPINAL COLUMN TnE SAFE, SANE AND SURE WAY CHIROPRACTIC IS BEING RECOGNIZED. Gratitudes, "Don't you sometimes feel that re publics are ungrateful?" "No," replied Senator Sorghum, "this republic of ours seems to be Just as liable to overestimate Its obligations to some of us statesmen, as it is to lack appreciation." Ask Dad, He Knows. Willie Paw, what is the staff that dreams are made of? Paw Lobster a la Kewburg and VelAh rabbit, my. son, i Chiropractic has been recog nized by the railroad men of. the United States as being a very necessary part of the hospital system of the railroads, and sev eral of the Eastern railroads have recently adopted chiroprac tic adjustments in connection with their hospital work, parti cularly the Missouri Pacific rail road. Aside from the railroads, the Franklin Automobile Co. of Syracuse, N. Y., and other large industrial organizations of the East have adopted the chiroprac tic policy for the benefit of their employes. Chief among the reasons for the remarkable growth of chiropractic is the fact that it removes the cause of practically every ill known to mankind, by relieving the pressure upon the nerves that carry the life-giving force to every organ and cell of the body. Chiropractic is winning new converts every day purely upon its merits. California Breezes, Aug. 1921. DRS. JEFFREY & SMITH Chiropractic Health Service. Over Harper's Dept.

Let's loo beyond the present and strive for the attainment or better thingj. Lets work for the upbuilding of our (coun try and all that it contains. Let's swear a new allegiance to that true Americanism that is founded upon the rock of justice and the square deal. A nation is what its people make it Americans have made this, the best country in the world by going con stantly forward in the path of prog ress. Let employer, employee and everyone else stand together and not only maintain the 1921 standards of living and industry but make them better as the years to bv. 'The har mony, concord and unity that is so es sential to the future of our country cannot be inspired by a deflation of wages and a return to the standards of the year 1914 It's always well to remember that if the other fellow is doing his job the best he knows how he may be just as usciui to society as you are. Where are the sentimentalists? Wliy not a society for the protection of hun gry sharks? Efficiency 'may be much overwork ed word, but that only tends to prove its efficiency. A goodly portion of Europe doesn't care where it eats its Christmas din ner, just so it eats. Nobody loves the neutral now. but after the war he will be hailed as everybody's best friend.
