Editor Butte Bulletin: We can but note with dismay the lack of interest taken in gardening among the people of the flat. There is enough vacant land in that part of the town alone to raise enough potatoes and root vegetables for the whole city. Why ship these things in from Ida ho and other outside points, while both land and labor are going to waste here? Idle boys roam the streets and destroy vacant houses continually, and scores of growing girls are also idle. Tons of fertilizer are being thrown out on the dumps at .the same time. We think it was a vicious thing for the commissioners to lower t.ie' fqr the commissioners to lower tle I mass or rfie people.

" We have long beon proud of our political democracy but since the war we have realized that an indus trial democracy is the next impera tive thing.

Editor Bulletin: The little secretary of the state board of disease once more gets soime free advertising, owing to his desire ostensibly to help humanity to further disease itself. His latest herald to the public is that they can have free anti-typhoid soup on ap plication of their local health au I thorities. What a plausible little scheme to mulct the dollars out of 1 the gentle public's pockets and at y the same time p'romot(e the serumlll I manufacturer and local doctor's s business. To what depths is the medical profession descending when e it loans itself to such coummercializ ing of one of the holiest callings on earth. Of course as society is now constituted in this country the fi nancial viewpoint is always upper most, and naturally it means it is to the best interest of the medical fra ternity to have as much sickness as possible. These serums, while on their face. alpearing as a good thing for stamping out the different dis eases for which they are labeled, yet, are capahble of so much more harmil by their introduction into the human P system, which then gives them the opportunity to produce other dis eases, which will keep the nembers of the profession busy figuring out other serunms for their ciire ad in finlit unt. In the Butte Miner of the 25th inst., is another dispatch, inspired by the saute advertising state board of disease, wherein one E. D. Hlitch cock, state bacteriologist, is brought to the fore as another savior of health. It sure must lbe pleasant 'reading to the taxpayers of this state to know that their funds are being Suse'd for alleged scientific experi ments to prolmote one school of heal ing which is framing for a mnonop olistic hold on the peoplle's health. A while hack I had the pIleasure 1 of calling thle attention of the public to the menagerie which the state g board of health had gathered, con sisting of guinea pigs, sheep, rah bits, etc., probably dogs also, as it is usual for thellm to include the lat o r in a scheme of this kind. Now, it is becomliing evident what all this was for. This savior has been to ollchest'er, M'inii.., t get propel in spiration f'rom that qullarter, so that influhinza seriuln calan be milaniufac tured in this state. ,ast winter the 'Mlayo branid of sCelumt was puronounced Ihe lbest, and Ithe people werel willing to take a clance. although the pub i lic health service bureau had warned Sihe pllli it glliilst all sr ilis for this .2 ..-...... .1 .. ... tl.,, .,,, l ",3r I, - ,l/- - n .t I the public aiginst aill SPruinin ior t11 Idisease, and even the AMayos were not quite sure of its efficacy.

What Satanic smniles these geintry have when returning fronm one of these horrible experiments dis cussing the alleged scientific results. Oh, well! Taxpayers he satisfied, iou are of too comolnol clay to at tain the heights of this scientific heaven. You should consider it an honor to dig into your pockets to pay the expenses, and let this su prnllely favored class tell the won derful headway friade inl the latest fashion in medicine.

About the net result of all this will ihe the sowing of more disease and probably a little psychological ('ffet. iin the way of alleviation of fle r of influenza.

Phoebe was born in Ohio on Sept. 4, 1824, and became a writer for periodicals, in both prose and verse. She was associated with the Rev. Dr. Charles F. Deems in ed iting a volume of "Hymlns for All Christians." One of her devotional poems, beginning, "One sweetly, solemn thought comies to lie o'er ind o'er," has attained world-wide pop ularity. She was nmuch devoted to her sister, Alice, and dlid not long survive ier. Alice died on Feb. 12, 1871; Phoeble on July 31, 1871. Fron 1850 the two sisters lived to gether in New York city'. For many years after their death their home in New York city was one of the landmarks, on account of the bril liant gatherings or celebrities at the home of the poet-sisters. His luke w(arm assurl'ance for the common herd., gives us unutterable gratification towards the State for oul removal fro'm the outside world so wrapped in the soft music of ad ulation towards such paraciwical de generacy.

Many of these victflris of the world-wide class war are awatiug trial-and have been waiting for many weary nimonths for the speedy trial guaranteed them by the United States (Constitution.

Not a day passes without some newspaper headline boldly challeng ing the eye with such as these: "Food alone will save Germany from the reds." "Food riots by the soviets in Russia." "Belgium starving." "Food famine in Europe:" From the storehouse of misfortune in every nation, including the United States, hundreds of like philippics might be taken and hurled, fasten ing the attention of our conscious ness to a terrible and horrible situa tion that has avertaken mankind. The whole world is hungry. Men out of work and without means are facing starvation. Alen at work, but With the cost of food beyond their reach, too, go hun gry. The stomach plays an important part in the life of man. Upon the battlefield and at the peace table it dictates terms. It grants no ar mistice and recognizes no amnesty. A breakfast has more than once been the invisible force behind the judge's decision. Food is the chief factor of the world's problems of today. The world's profoundest states men may meet and restate in new rhetorical terms a world's concepts, but their reception will rest largely upon how well the people's stomachs are filled. It is a wise mother-in-law who ad monishes her daughter: "If you want to keep your husband's love, feed hihm." And so, if things are to stay as they are, we had better get busy ) and feed the workers of the world. tBut the feeding today has taken on a different form. There was a ) time, and it ran through centuries, when alms were acceptable to the worker out of work, whe. England I granted to soldiers theirighit to beg without police interferencb. But the soldier of today resents gil, this. He comes back and boldly't:ells you of the sacrifice he made when lie en tered the service, and .:h speaks the truth. He boastfully tells you of his fighting and winning for democracy, and he does not overstate his efforts. Now he demands work a.id plenty, of it-food and enough of it-and he I5 right. What are you going to do about this? Soft speeches, entertainment, la dies? No. He is hungry. No sermon ever satisfied a hungry man. No en tertalniment, however good, ever stilled a hungry stomach. And no la dies, however loving, ever, held a starving man. It is serious, damned serious. Statesmen, no wonder you are alarmed and see spectres of bolshe vism and spartacusism. No wonder, wherever you turn, you see RED. The political roulette wheel has been tampered with and its black settles e upon your political defeat and obliv ion. What are you going to do about it? Labor has risen, like a hungry giant, out of a sickbed of lethargy. 1 and cries for food. The first sign of a return to health is the assertion of a the appetite.
