The Presideut took au extended walk in
the Wliite House grounds Sunday. Let Sena- j

^-Voices begin to rise even in the metro- 1
politan dailies for remembrance by rich will
makers of the small colleges of the couu- ,?
try, the real homes of lowly living and high
thinking, the noblest nurseries we have of
real piety, Tenl manhood, real principles, j
real Americanism, sturdy common sense and ?
substantial achievement.
General Grant, according to the juat pub- ;
lished statement of his son, opposed encour
agement of foreign immigration to the South
because he wanted to see this section kept
the citadel of undetiled and undiluted Ameri
canism. Conditions justify his position and
go to prove that lie had much more far
sighted statesmanship than general opinion
lias given him credit for. !
Pretest against exclusion ol' live men 1
elected to the New York Assembly as Social- j
ists comes Irom everywhere in the country.
Considering the ill odor in which their party
is and the insignificance of the minority it
represents, the protest is n handsome demon- ,
stration of the American spirit of fair play ,
and insistence on the sanctity of right of j
opinion.
Miss Gaston, of Chicago, files lieraelf in j
the South Dakota presidential preference
s primary as candidate for President on the
antitobacco platform. This presents an awful
issue to those free feminine spirits who ar
sert their equality with cigarettes, and now
must choose between that glorious privilege
and the opportunity to cast their suffrages
for .a. female aspirant to occupy the White
House without the degrading preliminary of
marriage to a man.
With the cost pf'*lhe wool entering into
the manufacture of a man's ordinary suit of
clothes not over 5 5.25, and the cost of the
finished product to the wearer now placed at
''$60 with a threat of ?100, there is found
ample reason for the frenzied search into old 1
closets and garrets for garments onco dis
carded as unfit for further use. A certain
number of garments must be worn, regardless
of price, but a patch on the southern side of
a pair of troupers promises to become a real j
badge of distinguished service.
At last, by virtue of the Baker law, passed j
two years ago. the despised cur dog has been
converted from a .State liability into an asset. '
His dogship has paid into the several county J
and city treasuries a total of $256,970 in the j
form of license fees, while for the sheep
depredations on the part of outcast members
of his tribe he ha:- paid out ?18,550.85, leav- j
ing a comfortable balance to be expended for j
schools and roads. The sheep industry also j
has profited by the destruction of 2.C.". 1 worth
less dogs, and as the number increases it ;
should resume its once important place on j
Virginia farms.
Secretary Lansing hastens to correct the i
impression created when notification was ;
given the supremo council that the Tinted i
States waived its claims to any part of the \
Indemnity to bo paid by Germany for the i
sinking of the German ships interned at ;
Scapa Flow that such waiver included its :
claims to a percentage of the additional ton- j
nage to be delivered by Germany under the
terms of the peace treaty. To that agree- ;
ment the United States was> a party, and
iu so far as the executive department of the
government is concerned it proposci to abide
by its agreements to the full extent of its ?
power.
State Librarian Mcllwalue has taken au in
vontory of the manuscript material in the Yir- !
ginia State Library. The inventory shows u
total of 1,268,504 papers and documents on
it, file, representing an archival collection of in- ;
estimable value. The Colonial Dames, Vir- 1
ginia chapter, and other patriotic organize
tioits. are endeavoring to secure fro id the
present General Assembly of Virginia an ap
; propriation sufficient to erect an archival
vahlt adjacent to the present library building
for the safekeeping of our manuscript treas
ures, and this inventory was prepared in
ofder that It might be known exactly what
these treasures are. The inventory shows
vrlth great completeness of detail the dif
ferent kinds of documents on file, and a
, dance at the liat Is Kufflclent to convince
any ne that they are too prccious to be

subjected to (ho hazards of the future; hence
the commendable movement to have the Gen
era! Assembly make an appropriation for a
?vault for their safe-keeping.
** The Divine Art of Hcaliug
fact that Iftrge crowds of diseased
people, many of them coming from re
mote distance,??, should have attended James
Moore Hickson's healing mission to this city
should not eauso any surprise, nor should
any one marvel if cures should bo announced
iu the cases ot some of the atllicted as a re
sult of his mission. Tho command of Christ
to His disciples was to preach the gospel and
to heal tho sick. In His own person He
demonstrated unlimited power to heal, and
He assured Ifis disciples, "These things can
ye do and even greater." Indeed, it was not
until the fourth century that the' Christian
Church seems to have lost sight ot this power
as inseparable from the mission of the
teachers it sent forth into the world, since
which time the healing art has gradually
been abandoned to the medical profession
It has been well said that sickness is sim
ply perverted energy or tho scattering of
vibratory forces, and the remedy lies in one's
ability to reunite with God's harmonies. This
may he accomplished by the individual con
corned. or with the aid of a healer. Sin
sickness and poverty all express disease, or
a lack of ease, which results from being'out
of tune with the natural order of creation.
Disease is the result of wrong vibrations!
and vibrations are-produced by feelings, and
amotions. A receptive patient and a well
poised practitioner can make the connection
with equilibrating power very quickly; by '
establishing^the right condition and a liar- j
tnonious relation with God's infinite pirn ?
which is ordained for perfect expression? j
healing is speedily accomplished.
Health, therefore, is a matter of proper
adjustment: we. ourselves individually, are
suppled with an abundance of power, and
we need only rightly to appropriate it to
assume our own health, or. having allowed
it to become impaired, to restore it. The :
torces of nature are always ready to fulfill i
their purpose, and are waiting to yield theui- 1
selves to tho necessities of the individual. ?
the healer has been compared, and very cor
rectly so, to an electrician. The electrician
prepares the way for the flowing of tho elec
tric current. Similarly, the healer helps the
patient to establish right relations between
himself and Divino ene.gy.
The power that the healer possesses is. i
therefore, easy of explanation. He is in con- i
trol ot himself and in perfect accord with !
the highest radiations of Divine mind; other- !
wise lie has no intrinsic value as a healer, |
as it is necessary for him to establish a '
perfect union with Cod's concordant laws !
before he can be of service to the patient. '
Whatever tends to generate equanimity of 1
mind has healing efllclcncy. The individual |
of equable temperament, always looking at
the bright side of things, is usually his own i
physician. Medical practitioners recognize !
this truth and avail of the power of mental
? uggestion to aid them iu their practice j
Hence, the proverbial saying with respect to '
the eifectivc use of bread pills in the treat- j
incut of certain classes of patients 'whose j
ailments are the result of a mental tension !
or of a disturbed temperament, induced by ;
lear, superstition or anxiety. Both physi- ;
cians and healers recognize that God's laws i
operate only for good, and both become of- !
fcctivp instruments of curative power when j
they establish a riqht attitude on the part i
01 their patients toward these laws. They 1
recognize that our lives should bo affected I
only by the sentient influences of good. !
Hence thry seek to ward off whatever af
fects us adversely by inspiring in us faith j
m the power of good over evil, which atti- :
tude, established and firmly held, enables our i
system In all of its parts to function nor- !
mallv and, therefore, healthily. j

invited by a majority of his political asso- '

the proceeding, Mr. Glass felt that he had no
moral right to aid in the selecting of a floor
leader of the minority until he has assumed

A Daily Once Over
When Yon Move to a .New House.
Perhaps after years spent in tho same small
city, or in a certain section of a large city, it
has become necessary or advantageous for you
to move to another place or another section,
and you do nut like it.
You .ire not making any elYort to like it, just
cuss about it and make yourself unhappy.
Cotter think a bit about how foolish is this
course of yours.
If it is necessary or better for you to change
your habitation, why not try tb make yourself
as comfortable and contented as you can?
So long as you live within four walls of your
own home, docs anything elsa really matter?
If you can keep your Job, you ought to con
sider yourself lucky, but instead you go around
the office or shop so grouchy and so snarly that
no one cares to associate with ytfu. so how can
you expect any more out of life than vou are
getting?
And as for that new home of yours, get yut
and mingle with your neighbors and you may
find more congenial souls than you think.
We generally get what we arc looking for In
this world, so it pays to look for the great hap*
piness within our own selves and then we can
not be disappointed.?Copyright, 1020.

The "Freedom of Speech" Line,
BY ALFRED B. WlblJAJI?.
Mr. Cobb, a N'ew York editor, in a public
speech last weok discussed what lie called the
"propaganda" being used to justify suppressions
of meetings and limitations on free speech by
the government. He contended that In the
confusion of thought and befogging of stand
ards resulting from the war we are being
pushed and led to methods endangering our
liberties and creating trouble for the future.
Many of us in lhe South, inheriting the tra
ditions arid principles that destroyed the alien
and ^edition laws, h;^ve squirmed instinctively
at the reports of. police raids, arrests of speak
ers and dispersals of gatherings in the steel
strike regions, Xew York and elsewhere. Yet,
common sense applied to the cold facts tells us
our squirming is unreasonable and refutes Mr.
Cobb's implied protest.
It is impossible to define in words the line
between liberty and license, between what
should be permitted and what forbidden and
punished in speech and writing, just as it Is im
possible to express (he difference between de
cency and indecency. The determination always
must be by instinct, circumstances, characters,
apparent purposes and motives. Any lino of
analogies, logic or precedents followed too far
must lead us to absurdities and villainies. Tho
steps that make a virtue a vice or transform
the exercise of a right into the commission of
a crime frequently are almost Imperceptible.
If we contend that one man has the right to
urge destruction of the government, slaughter
of the middle and upper classes and seizure of
property, wo can not deny another man tho
right to plot the murder of an individual, pub
licly advocate burglary and incendiarism, give
instruction in the safe execution of them and
maintain a school for training pickpockets and
highwaymen. Going in the opposite direction,
no anarchist has said anything more lawless
or violent than the abolition heroes, founders
of the Republican party, who called the Consti
tution a League of Death and a Covenant with
Hell and the flag n Haunting lie, to bo torn
down. Some millions of us In the South tried
hard to disrupt the United States and not only
denounced and derided tho llag. but shot it full
ot hole3 and killed many of ihoso who carried
it. John Urown Is a hero in Kansas, but he
ari anarchist and direct Actionist of the
worst kind. Ho was hanged. The South was
beaten back Into tho Union after undergoing
frightful punishment.
Inhilnct and common ?onse tell us. however,
that, regardless of <uir own past actions and
i. -(.rds and methods, we must not allow for
i? _?:??? rf of whose characters, purposes anil ca
pacities we know nothing but. ill to organize on
our own soil violent rebellion against our gov
? i nment and political and social systems. They
('?ll us that the line between tolerance and
suppression must bo drawn and enforced, by
ny means necessary, where our own safety Is
threatened. They Impress on us the facts that
while. Christianity and movements for ordered
liberty have thriven and spread under suppres
sion, anarchy has developed many times, al
ways amid turmoil and ruin, has built nothilig,
bar: failed always, leaving desolation and devas
tation In its path to collapse. Tho same disease
of abnormal craving for disintegration and de
struction that glve?i It life assures Its downfall
after a course crowded with horrors and
drenched *//lth the blood of Innocents. It is a.
thing of force, ?.o be fought ttcrnly with force,
at any cost, to bo stamped and beaten down
immediately, like flr? m a n?ld where, many
unless and Inflammable weeds wait to catch
nd spread II, to extend ex'et mlnn'ton while

jovial gentleman came lo the office door, carry

rang. It looked auspicious and I decided to
watch the follow. Mamie, our office girl, save
hltn the once over and admitted him oh his
.smile. Presently father opened the private of
fice door and welcomed tlio wtranger cordially?
father is a terribly cordial man If ho thinks*he
secti a rec In sight. But before the hip man en
tOred the private office he executod a dos-a-dos
(ml on t?\e porch and dragged in his bag. It
was too late then for dad to change tactics, it
was not the first time an idjoih had put It over
on dad like that.
Naturally I wanted to get a look in that bag.
But 1 didn't say a word?in fact I wasn't on
speaking terms with the family at the time. I
Just kept quiet and hid behind a big chair. But
I did a tall lot of tlilnkJng. Don't Imagine for
a moment that n baby Is gathering wool all the
time ho sucka It I h toeo or bores his ears; lie
may bo doing more thinking than you glvo him
credit for. lie may bo thinking how foolish
your bal?y talk sounds.

that agent was reminded of a story about Osier
and tho oruiM-cyd woman. Vat her be/ran to
grow uneasy. The man talked to him as though
father were a freshman medical student?It is
a way thoso detail rncn have. They assume the |
average i?liInn. If he han any time at all to j
listen to their line of lingo, Is probably a bit i
vague in medical science and will be thankful
for any elementary instruction they may a?'o tit i
to give, hltn about the treatment of his patients. j
I felt sorry for dad and I tried to relieve the. j
situation by hollering _"Da-da-da-da-da-oh.
dii-a-a-n-a-a-ah!" at the top of my voice and
pounding the lloor v. it it my choo-choo ear*. !
The fat man stuck his liead out tho office door!
and excluimed. "Alia, you've one of your own.
Doctor!" .?nd dad confeased hi; hail. "And it's

they all ?ay that when they are after business. 1
"Oh." dad admitted, "he gets along all right."
Then tho stranger betrayed ills poor train

you've ever given her any Ulaukoy Food. Doc- j

Her! The poor duffer.
"Wove given him many packages of it,"
father replied, brightening a little.
I was shocked, lor 1 had never known father 1
to tell deliberate falsehoods, except, of course,
to patients. My dad Is a pretty fine doctor, I'll
tell the world, nnd with him it is a matter of (
principle to stick to the truth when a He Is not'
indicated. Understand, father ll^s like a gen
tleman. and never for any personal advantage.
Of course the. agent was delighted. "Fine,
line!" lie shouted. "And she's the picture of
health!" Thai part of it seemed remarkable to
him. somehow. Then he pleaded for a photo
graph?ottered to have a dozen cabinet photo-'
graphs taken if father would give him Just one
for advertising purposes. To this father in
stantly agreed, with the understanding that he
should write tho testimonial letter, and of1
course the agent agreed to that.
I th?uyht .1 must have left part of my ding
dong in my tars, for 1 could scarcely believe
what 1 heard. Testimonials! I wondered what (
dad could be thinking of. lie asked the agent
to take down the testimonial which he wished
to dictate. "All right." responded the agent. .
getting out his pencil and note book. "Shoot."
This is what father shot:
Ourn is a hundred per cent baby, raised on
the best artificial baby food an .vet invented?
fresh mill: modified to suit his age. But we j
have given him many packages of Blankety In
fant Vood?sample packages. The bciby has al
ways enjoys playing with these packages.
The agent was gathering up his test-tubes,
obstetric calendars, ash-trays, desk-pads and
sangfroid. Father's little joke had by no means,
taken the wind out of his sails. "That's all j
right. Doctor," he boomed, jovial as ever. "You
->ay our food added materially to the happiness
of'the baby, and we could not ask a better tes

has time to call "All aboard," may have a? much
mileage ahead of It a* th<- train that plunges
out ot the multitudinous throng. But the yeo- '
pie of tli<? little town don't think so. If they do j
tlioy won't admit it. I asked one of the natives
to explain the superstition. This is how he did j
it: "Well, win ii a man leaves the city we sue-'
niise he :s going .i long ways. But when he
leaves a little town like this wo calculate he'll '
get homesick before he travels many miles j
and come back on tbc next train. So what's j
the use of seeing hlai oft' with any hurrah or i
weeping around as if we never cxpect to see,
him again?"'
1 asked an old conductor about these good
byes at stations. "If the people who say good
bye with so much ado and go back home feeling 1
ho bowed down could see tlieir friends after
they've traveled about ten miles, they wouldn't ?
worry. If the travelers are men they get into
a game of cards, if tliey . an make up a party, i
| and if they are women they get out their lunch
boxes pretty quick and then snuggle down into I
a corner and go to sh . p," he explained. I
