Just tell her that she snores. o A drug store complexion can hardly be termed “the blush that won’t come off”—especially if the weather is warm. o Some people find it unnecessary to search out their own faults. Their neighbors do it for them. o Popularity is not always an evi dence of brains. The sight of a pocket flask works wonders. o If prices do come clear down it will be an awful jolt for people who buy it on credit aid then brag about how much they paid. o Even with the advent of spring we can’t lose the weather man. He’ll soon be roasting us just as gleefully as he tried to freeze us to death. o Yes, it is quite true that some people are totally devoid of fear. They are dead. o The United States has succeeded Great Britain as the world’s banker, Europe owing us the tidy little sum of fourteen billions of dollars. The four teen billions look better to us than the honor of being the W. B. Get ’em back. o Not being harnessed up in the league of nations, we can do just as effective and profitable work by con stituting ourselves a league of Ameri cans. o It is hoped, in passing, that the time will eventually come when uncivilized civilization will again become civiliz ed. o One means of reducing the number of divorces among the rich would be to follow the example of the Turk and allow them to annex three or four wives. But at that the Turk would probably object to being in the same class. o As long as there is life there is hope, but hope does not always pro long life. o No, we can never mend our own faults by complaining of those of others. o “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” says the good book —and especially if she is young and beautiful, say we. o Just now one hour is more profit- TT'S different j I others because more is taken in the and the materials used are higher grade.

This is because the full, rich, real tobacco taste lasts so '-t \ long, you don’t need a fresh chew nearly as often.

You have our permission. o Some men take vociferous pride in their ability to wiggle their ears, but the jackass is more discreet in his egotism. o Teddy, Jr., assistant secretary of the navy, is taking lessons in boxing. It will be a long time, however, before the chip is the size of the old block. o Remember the old days when we youngsters used to get out behind the barn and smoke grapevines? If the worst comes, etc. —but perhaps they will prohibit G.

Corey, family and relatives wish to express their sincere apprecia tion and thanks to the many dear friends who so kindly assisted during the illness, and after the death of our beloved wife and mother, Mrs. S. G. Corey. The loving sympathy expressed in beautiful floral gifts, contributed ser vices and words of comfort will be | cherished in our hearts throughout life. PETITIONS ASK FOR DAYLIGHT SAVING HERE LOCAL INDUSTRIAL PLANTS AND BUSINESS HOUSES ASKED BY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE IF DAYLIGHT PLAN IS WANTED. The daylight saving plan for Wis consin Rapids will largely be deter mined by the petition now being cir culated in the city by committees of the local Chamber of Commerce. It is proposed that the city adopt the plan on midnight of April 10 and keep it until midnight of October Ist. It will mean that the clocks will be set ahead exactly one hour during that period. Visit Industries. Many of the local industries will be or have been visited by representa ; tives of the Chamber of Commerce who are securing signatures on the petitions. Local industries are also taking a hold of the situation as for example the Consolidated which start |e and a questionnaire among its em ployees to determine their will about the saving plan. The men are asked to vote yes or no on the proposition. The local houses will also be visited on the plan to determine the will of the busi ness district. It is expected that the local people will favor the plan. Has Many Advantages. There are many advantages to the plan of saving daylight, chief among them being the privilege of enjoying daylight for a longer part of the day, the evenings especially when people want to work in their gardens, on their lawns, take outings and motor trips. The clocks being set ahead will not mean earlier opening of stores or earlier time to report for work as far as the hour basis is concerned. Eight 1 o’clock new time will be eight o’clock but it will come one hour earlier by the sun. Some objections are raised, the main one being, inconvenience to the out side people w r ho come here. It is thought that the advantages will out weigh the objections.—Daily Tribune. We personally believe the change will revert to the majority of our peo ple and therefore we favor it. People who are annoyed by gossip are generally the ones who listen to it. ASTHE EDITOR JSEESIT “Life is getting slow again,” re marked a leading citizen as he laid aside his morning paper. Perhaps it is. Yet in the last twen ty-four hours he has traveled two million miles. Some jaunt, that, even for one who is accustomed to hitting the pace. But of course, he traveled along with the earth, and never gave a thought to the speed at which he was tearing through space. We seldom more than half think when we do any thinking at all. The Chicago river interferes with the growth and beauty of the Windy City. This does not please the people where the wind blows, hence they will pick up the river and move it over to a spot farther removed. Paying $3,- 000,000 for the privilege will add spice to the job. No, there is no wind in this item, even if there is plenty of it in Chicago. We read that the secretary of state is studying Mexican conditions. Per haps he will find that we have some thing to learn from the sane and deter mined course of President Obregon. The Mexican executive appears to have accomplished the impossible by quickly restoring order and a sembl ance of normal conditions in his coun try. Mr. Harding may prove as resource ful as General Obregon. We hope so, at least. We need it. The wife of a Red Cross worker has brought suit for divorce against him. While overseas this misrepre sentative of a noble band married a demure French lassie, unmindful of the fact that he had left a wife in the states. Later there was a child. Wife No. 1 preferred her freedom to being linked up to a brute, even though he wore the emblem of the Red Cross. The respectable brute creation, how’ever, will probably object to hav ing this animal classed as one of them. The red terror is gripping Germany, iust as the German terror tried to grip France and England, and would have done had not the American foot tripped her up just at the psychologi - cal moment. The German terror, devoid of teeth, orobably knows now how it feels to have another terror gripping it. And yet we can not help a feeling that the German terror of war days consisted of the kaiser, the aristocacy, and the militaristic class. The com mon people were simply herded up and driven to the slaughter. Terrors are terrifying, no matter which side they grip. In Washington they are working on a scheme for tax revision. It is hint ed that there will be a general down ward trend, with the excess tax- elimi nated entirely. In other words, the burden of the poor man will be lightened by a few pennies, while that of rich men and corporations will be clipped off by the hundreds of thousands. That is the gist of the press dis patches. We hope, however, they are in error. We prefer to feel that President Harding, at least, is an ad vocate of the square deal. A vicious Canadian timber wolf was rounded up in the railroad yards of Chicago, having surreptitiously travel ed from the wilds of Canada in a freight car. No one paid the freight. It’s too bad we can’t load up our vicous human wolves and ship f hem up where the tall trees grow. An even exchange would be to our advan tage. We might even find it profitable to pay the freight. There are degrees of viciousness even in wolves, you know. PRAISES THEM TO HIS FRIENDS Backache is a symptom of weak or disordered kidneys.

STATEMENT 0F THEPOSTMASTER GENERAL TO THE PRESS The purpose is to develop a closer and a very intimate relation with the Senate and House Committee on Postoffice and Post Roads; to endeavor to have these committees jointly oc cupy a position as nearly as possible anala;: ous to that of the Board of Directors in any large business; to have them advising continually as to the methods of improvement and oper ation and to take an active, continuing and increasing interest in the service. In addition it is proposed to make the “Joint Commission on Postal Ser vice,, occupy a position analagous to the executive committee of any board of directors in any large business, giving still more attention to the busi ness of the Department and very de finitely participating in the largest way in the effort to improve and main tain the service. This Joint Commission on Postal Service was created last year by Act of Congress and consists of the Chair man and five members of the Senate and five members of the House Com mittees on Postoffice and Post Roads, and a postaf expert appointed by the Postmaster General, together with an Advisory Council provided for in the Act to serve without pay, consisting of seven persons experienced in busi ness and commercial transactions to aid in its work.

Chambers. APRIL HUMANE THOUGHT, HUMANE WEEK 11-17 By A. E. Frederick, State Humane Officer “Think on these things.”—St. Paul. In the hurry of life we often do not take time to think. Especially is this true with regard to our relations to ward dumb animals. Much neglect and cruelty is often caused by thoughtlessness. This being true, humane workers of the country have set aside one week in the year to stimulate activity along humane lines, and to turn the thoughts of the nation to the great fundamental principles of kindness and mercy. Humane Week, April 11th to 17th, may be observed in many different ways. Apropriate humane exercises, programs, stories, essays, and contests in the schools on Friday afternoon of this week, and the discussion of a humane subject in the pulpits on Sun day, April 17th, will form effective means of reaching both young and old with a message. Then, in the homes this lesson may also be taught. Let not only the teacher and the preacher but also the parent teach and foster the humane spirit. Wisconsin, ever at the front in all great movements, must not fail in this. There is no greater thought than that of mercy, no greater ser mon than that on kindness, and no greater religion than these virtues practiced. Let us all observe Humane Week, April 11th tu 17th! Let us stop and think, that we may learn to be kind! Professor—“ You have a remarkably powerful voice.” Basso—'“Yes? Do you think I shall be able to fill the concert hall?” Professor—“ Not only fill it, but empty it, my friend.” “Cholly, do you love me?” “Sure.” “A whole lot?” “Listen here, girl, I think I love you nearly as well as you love yourself.” I POSTMASTER GENERAL HAYS I MAKING GOOD Our National Postman is certainly making good. Promptly upon his as sumption of office he committed him self with charactertistic directness and frankness to the achievement of those reforms of the Department, both sub jective and objective, of which the last few years have disclosed so press ing a need. It was a striking incident for Mr. Hayes to visit the New York Postoffice and personally make a heart-to-heart address to the assembl ed employees, and to do the same at Washington, Chicago, and elsewffiere. No other Postmaster-General in all our history, we believe, ever did such a thing. But still more striking was the occasion of his so doing. For it is one thing to make fine promises during a campaign, before election, and it is a very different thing to make specific pledges after election and the assumption of office. In doing that, Mr. Hays is acting in accord with President .Harding him self; who, having made some notable and specific campaign promises of radical reforms in the conduct of the Administration, delighted his friends and quite flabbergasted his critics by scrupulously fulfilling them in the most matter-of-course way. In an Administration which thus honors its advance obligations it is perfectly fit ting and consistent to have other obli gations incurred after election; and to have them also loyally fulfilled, as we have no question these will be. So far as the subjective interests of the Postoffice Department are con cerned, Mr. Hays’s policy is expressed in a single phrase. He purposes to humanize it. That intent was mani fested in his going before the em ployees as he did, man to man. The demand of Labor throughout the land has long been that workmen shall be regarded by their employers not as machines or as chattels but as fellow men. The Postmaster-General is the head of the greatest industrial estab lishment in the world, with 300,000 employees on its payrolls. He pledges himself to regard their labor in com mon with his own, “not as a mere EAGLE No. 174 MIS— For Sale at your Dealer Made in five grades ASK FOR THE YELLOW PENCIL WITH THE RED BAND EAGLE MIKADO EAGLE PENCIL COMPANY, NEW YORK i.

ROSEBUSH SPEAKS AT STATE HEALTH MEETING ; Franz Rosebush, employment man ager of the Nekoosa-Edwards Paper Cos., attended a meeting of the State Board of Health at Madison the past week and addressed the meeting on the general subject of “What the work of the Industrial Nurse means to In dustry.” Mr. Rosebush in the course of his address explained the work ac complished at the Port Edwards mills and the work undertaken in the town itself. He also offered suggestions as to the future relations of the industri al nurse and the public welfare. Health in communities was also ex plained by Mr. Rosebush, who recom mended certain higher standards for the care of children. The meeting was held under the supervision of Mrs. Mary Morgan, di rector of Child Welfare of the State Board of Health. Miss Lemmon of the Consolidated Cos. in this city and Miss Bea, of Riverview Hospital, also attended the meeting. WE PASS A city boy had never seen a wind mill before exclaimed: “Gee, mister! That’s some electric fan you’ve got out there cooling the hogs.” Advice is like medicine. It is very objectionable to most people.
