Europe is quite willing to saw wood if the United States will furnish the wood and the saw. —o A still tongue does not always make a wise head. Dead people can’t talk. o And still, the man who lives to a good old age-may not be good. When lawyers begin a violent con troversy in court it is by no means a sign of animosity. They can not de mand additional fees without some ex cuse. o The road to success is not a boule vard. o When in doubt set yourself right. The fellow who gives you advice may not be any more sure of his attitude than you are. o Many a man has fought his way to the top of the ladder only to have the blamed thing collapse. o All things come to him who waits if he reaches out and grabs them as they go by. o When a man and his wife agree on every subject one of them does all of the talking. o One of the best cures for a swelled head is a standpat mother-in-law. o— Spooning in public by married peo pie covers up many an ugly scrap be hind the scenes. o— And why should Europe be begging for American loans? Our rich tour ists are juicy picking. o Congress is tinkering with the tar iff again and next fall the people will be tinkering with congress. o Mr. Bryan once remarked that a million men would spring to arms over night in the event of war. But that is mild compared to the number who would I’espond if the arms were to con sist of a well filled bootleg. o It’s difficult to blush upon occasion when the druggist furnishes the com plexion. o If you want to see a woman with her head in the clouds just watch her as she passes her dearest enemy on the street. —o Some old skinflints drop a penny in the collection box and expect to reap a dollar’s worth of blessings. . o Ministers are about the most con siderate people we know. They are extremely delicate in the methods they employ in awnkening sleeping mem bers of heir congregations. o - The most insignificant person can easily attract attention by snoring in church. o Love is often like the tides. It comes in before marriage and goes out after wards. 1 In admiring some of those spiffy bathing suits illustrated in the maga zines one should remember that they are not intended to be worn in the water. o Tis fortunate our neighbors never know- us as we are. It saves us a lot of unnecessary worry. IP TO FRANCE Chaos must reign in Europe for an other period of time. The international bankers of the world, with J. P. Morgan at their head, have ruled against extending a loan to Germany without first having the w'ar reparations placed at a figure which the Germans will be able to meet without completely wrecking their industries and reducing the pop ulation to absolute poverty and slav ery. Every nation concerned agreed to and advocated a revision of the repai’a tions figures except France. She re fused and by her refusal the loan was blocked. In demanding her pound of flesh to the last ounce, when a reasonable j concession would have meant the re habilitation of stricken Europe, her self included, France has made the mistake of her life, one which will cost her dearly in the end. Had she agreed to a revision of the j reparations the situation would have been rapidly cleared up through the action of the bankers in financing a readjustment and the con sequent return to industrial and com mercial prosperity. This improvement would have ex tended to America and every other dis tant country. The whole world would have shared in the beneficial results. France, it w r ould seem, is scr blind ed with passion she can not see the handwriting on the wall, although it is plain to every other nation under the sun. If she persists in her present course to the detriment of the entire world, the day may come when she will have to fight Germany again, but she will fight alone. There will be no foreign armies sent to her relief, as was done in the last war. Other nations will not care to sacrifice their sons to aid a nation that is too stubborn to aid itself. In three months the international bankers wall meet again. The French have yet time in which to redeem themselves—if they will. TO STOP COUGHING AT NIGHT A summer bronchial' cough keeps not only the sufferer but other mem bers of the family awake. Alfred Bar ker, 1061 Avondale St., E. Liverpool, 0., writes; “My boy was suffering from a bronchial cough for 7 or 8 weeks. Foley’s Honey and Tar has done him 'vonderful good.” No opi ates. Sold Everywhere. ASTHE EDITOR SEES II Government chemists are now work ing out a means of producing a cheap fuel for motor cars from corn cobs, and are said to be meeting with grati fying success. It is doubtful, however, if it will ever be placed on the market where the users of motor cars can take ad vantage of it at reduced cost. The oil and gasoline interests are too rich and powerful to ever allow such dis astrous competition with their indus try to exist. Periodically we hear such reports, and motorists become enthused over the possibility of cheaper fuel for their engines. Then the project goes the way of its predecessors—possibly through stran gulation—and the public continues to line the pockets of the oil barons. The great American throat is not so parched as it was. It is becoming wetter every day. Statistics from Washington state that in 1921 every man, woman and child in the United States consumed an average of forty-nine gallons of milk, or nearly a gallon a week per capita. That is encouraging. It is also dis heartening—to those who would abol ish prohibition. A nation that consumes a gallon of milk a week per person will surely not suffer to any great extent as a re sult of that “terrible thirst.” In time it may become corpulent— even fat. The flapper has had a great run for her money. She has been the observed of all observers, the admired of all admirers and the cussed of all cmsers. She flapped herself into fame and now she is on the verge of flapping herself into oblivion. But there’s a reason. Americans like sensations —those that are spicy, but brief. We haven’t the time to pursuie any one sensation to a great length. There are too many others waiting to edge in. The flapper was a sensation—for a time. But she flapped so strenuously, in season and out, that she became wearisome to the public, and now she is about to become a nuisance. Scon she will be flapping only for her own admiration. But she was quite worth while. She furnished us a few thrills, and was the object of many now jests—all of which is necessary in the average A merican day. We will bid her adieu without re gret. But, Loi’d What will we get next ? Laws are made for the protection of the people who live under them. If a law is a good one it should be enforced. No favor should be shown either to the rich or the poor, to the Makes Fat Hogs Lice Infected hogs gain weight •lowly. Creonoid kills lice. It chases chicken mites— Increases profit*.

The Company York Chkf# Bwtsa Clmlui powerful or to the insignifica.it. If it is not a good law it should be repealed. : We have too many laws that are dead letters. They are only resurrect ed when some crusty cuss wants to satisfy a grudge, or some prosecutor wants to make a safe splurge. At other times they are disregarded with impunity. This condition is well known to the public, and even to the younger gen eration ust merging into manhood. It is not conducive to respect for either ) law or order. It is a breeder ox eva ] sion and is the father of contempt. ! We need fewer laws, but we need gcod ones that are enforced. “Truth is stranger than fiction/' I they say, but telling it often gets a I fellow into trouble where he has to | resort to fiction to squeeze out. Success comes to him who earns ! it, grabs it, and holds onto it. umv it i-prlsr?* Lil &i. i* 3. HF|Y.FIFTY 8 11. 1 I I fil k A ; A well known labor leader advocates the elimination of strikes and strong arm tactics in the settlement of dis putes with employers. He remarks, justly, that the public is tired of them, and that when an organization gets in Dutch with the people it is in a bad way. The laborer is worthy of a just hire —no more, and no less. Neither side has a right to assume a “dog in the manger” attitude nor have they the right to rcb the buying public to fatten themselves. The only effective remedy for this condition of affairs lies in the bands of congress and the government. There are too many swollen incomes in this country. This condition is made possible by combinations in re straint of trade and by profiteering in the form of extravagant price boost ing. These matters should be regulated by law, and the penalty for violations should not be in the form of fines. The guilty should be sent to jail. And in order that punishment may be swift and sure, the public official who fails to prosecute should himself be sent to jail for shirking his sworn duty. These may seem like harsh meas ures, but they are the only ones that will prevail. Labor leaders will continue to order strikes as long as employers continue to gouge the public and put all of the spoils in their own pocket. Eliminate gouging and strike a fifty fifty basis of settlement and strikes will be a thing of the past.
