We could believe it in this war from the standpoint of the tiendishness. but we have to doubt the story because it is our opinion that the bloodthirsty heads who are planning the Luropoan slaughter, are incapabh* of thinking down to the fine point of an individual unit. They display a tendency to think only in sums of thousands and hun dreds of thousands for their bloodlet ting. We doubt the story because the plac ing of dynamite in cigarettes would he a useless waste of ammunition. The things are deadly enough with out it, and there are other and more certain ways of administering poison. Its the history of the war proves. Were the story TRUK, we could ap preciate quickly, of course, why the country charged with the act had resort ed to it. It is engaged in a terrible conflict ; with very much depending upon the opt come, and the thing it must have is enemy lives to weaken that enemy in point of men. The thing that is harder for us to understand is what certain newspapers in the United States have against the youth of their own country, that the\ are willing to engage in a work of scat tering cigarettes promiscuously for con sumption by youth. The thing that is harder for us to understand is what these newspapers have against their COL NTR\, that they are willing, for pay. to increase the smok ing of cigarettes by those upon whom the future of the country must depend? It is harder for us to understand why newspapers will sell their columns to cigarette manufacturers, to help them in crease their pernicious traffic and their ooisaning of growing boys. ‘ Much harder, as we have said than it would be for us to understand the dis patch from the war zone if it were true.

ADDINGTON RRUCE Author of “Tbv Riddle of Personality," "Psychology and Parenthood.” etc. j The next time you have occasion to send for a doctor, for yourself or any member of your family, there are certain things you can do that will greatly help the doctor to help you. One thing, and most Important, is to keep your emotions under as firm control as possible. A great many people becom? frightened and excited as soon as they know a doctor is coming to see them. Their imagination runs riot They feel snre the doctor will find that something dreadful Is the mat ter with them. Now. this feeling of panic is a di rect cause of harm to a sick person. And it may make it almost impossi ble for a physician to determine just bow ill a patient is. and what la the real nature of his Illness. Diagnosis—the deciding as to ex actly what malady hgs attacked a patient—ls often most difficult un der the best of conditions. It is doubly difficult when a high state ot nen outness Is present. The nervousness does two things It interfere* with the patient # abil ity to anewer the doctor s questions correctly. It causes physical condi tions to develop which may serious ly mislead the doctor. For example, when a person gets very nervous hfs pulse-rate become* abnormally increased. Also his blood-pressure rises. So great is the effect of nervous ness on the blood-pressure that some authorities are today arguing that the taking of blood pressure for di agnostic purposes Is of little use, unless it Is taken at a time when a patient is manifestly free from ner vousness. Similarly with the testing of urine. Analysis of the urine should give a doctor information that he could not otherwise obtain. But nervous ex citement, by affecting the action of the Internal organs, often makes urinary analysis deceptive Emotional control, then, must be regarded as of'special importance In time of Illness The patient himself should keep as calm as possible, and those around him should so be have as to quiet rather than excite him. Ut them take‘’the attitude—abso lutely Justified In most cases—that they do not expect the doctor to find anything seriously amiss The more they can comport themselves in a cool, matterof-fact way. the less ner vous the patient will be. and the The Keep Well Column FLY MAN’S MOST ANCIENT ENEMY.

I greater the ease with which the na tire and severity of his illness can be ascertained Also, when the doctor comes, an swer all his question* as fully and frankly as possible Be entirely candid with him. Do not b« stopped by any feeling of shame or modesty from talking of unpleasant things. If he decides that a thorough phys ics] examination should be made, let him make it. Remember that he has no desire needlessly to embar rass you—that his one thought is to find out what is jhe matter and be gir. curative treatment. Another thing, have hot water and clean towel* ready. Try to avoid in any way causing the doctor need less delay. You are not bis only patient.

The old darky fol lowed his white patron through with pop Ding eyes, but saying never a word T>ate In the afternoon they got back to the Dickson home. 'John." said Dickson, "you enjoyed It?" "Boss."

Some other things may be fraught with uncertainty, but it has been clearly and« monstrated before the whole world that Wilson is for peace. He is for peace if it can be had with honor and all other peace is false or cowardly peace He is brave, but not a bully; he is firm, but no* stubborn; he is gentle, but not soft. Some day we will realize how fortu* n*»fe our country has been to have such a God-sent president at this time. Some day we Will be ashamed of any criticisms which we have made of him. ite has proven him self worthy of our trust. He has unusual wisdom and diacernmerr and if ever our country needed such a man It surely is now It would be ungrateful not to acknowledge his faithfulness by s unanimous vote back to hts position as president of our country and it would be mad nets to select a rash or untrust worthy person to fill the position at this critical time. Wilson has prov en bis ability and worth and we should greatly rejoice that he Is witling to continue his stupendous task. Lyman Abbott says. “I have never found that the way to win a victory is to underestimate the forces of the enemy.” Ever since the fall of Adam there has been good and evil, wheat and tares. Wil son does not yield to the sickly sen timentalism of the age. but he, like Ibtvid, goes forth with preparedness to meet Goliah, if Goliah is defer mined to fight or determined to op rress his people My prayer and hope for our country Is that we may be able to keep Woodrow Wllsor as the president of our country for another term because f think he loves peace with honor more than any other American.

MONDAY. MAY 0, 1916 THE GREAT ILLUSION. SV OR. FRANK CRANt (Copyright, 1915, by Frank Crana) George E. Roberts, former director of the mint, and now assistant to the presi dent of the National C ity Bank of New York, said the other day, speaking of the gains to American business owing to the crippled condition of European com petitor nations: , “I doubt if in the long run there will be any gains, and we will have to man age ourselves extremely well if we are not to suffer loss. It seems to me that the idea that we will do better in foreign trade, with Great Britain and Germany out of it, is based on error. It assumes that the amount of work to be done in the world is fixed and limited, whereas the truth is there is no limit to the amount of work that may be done, or to the amount of wealth that may be crß* ated from the resources of nature.” This is one of the truths that short sighted lust for profits cannot see. It takes vision, breadth of understanding, and a sense of the underlying laws of business to perceive it. The principle is that another man’s loss is not my gain, in the long run. The strands in the fabric of trade are so interwoven that the weakness of one is the weakness of all. Asa rule, the more dry goods stores there are in town, and the more they prosper, the better it is for my own dry goods store. Success is buttressed by the success of others all around me. The man who thinks he can climb to prosperity by ruining his competitors, is narrow, vicious, and ignorant. The same is true of nations. To break down the commercial activities of Ger many will hurt, and not help, England; and vice versa. That any nation thrives permanently on the calamity of another nation is part of the Great Illusion, part of that mesh of blind and passionate lies that is in cluded in the war mania. Whatever ojierates to restrain trade anywhere is bad. This world is not a little place, with only alwut so much trade, and the idea [that one nation can get its share only by [shutting out all others, is mistaken. “Really,” says the Bankers’ Magazine, “the chief problem in international trad ing is to multiply the purchasing power and to elevate the .standard of living, and this comes al*>ut not by diminishing the number of buyers or of sellers, but by increasing both. “Should Japan pursue the policy she is reported to have in mind and seize for herself preferential trading privileges in China, with the intention of excluding or narrowly limiting other nations in their dealings with that country, she would b# imitating the methods long employed by western nations in establishing ‘spheres of influence’ in the Orient. But the policy is probably a short-sighted one.” Trade makes trade. Competition, free and lively, creates wants, develops mar kets, and helps all. Any country’s trading capacity is elastic. The world’s business potenti ality is hardly touched as yet. There are still millions of ill-dressed and ill-fed peoples to be aroused to civil ized desires. All artificial schemes for the restraint of work, whether by labor unions, tariff laws, or nations, are examples of unin telligent grab instinct. THE PROPOSAL.
