NEWS-BUDGET (Established 1895) PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY MARK R. BELL Owner and Managing Editor D. H. RICHARDS Editor M. 0. EMMONS / Farm Editor Entered as second-class matter April 9, 1907, at the Postoffice-at Ladysmith, Wisconsin, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1879 PHONE NO. 2 Circulation *Last Issue HC/l To Actual Subscribers Sometimes it’s the fireman and not the public who roasts the city officials. For an inanimate thing, the new cen tral heating station is the most ambi tious thing in town. A tragic death will stir a nation, a death from cancer moves but few. Yet in the United States cancer claims 90,- 000 victims each year—one every six minutes. Hadn’t we better pay more attention to cancer prevention? For double-crossing their dupes, a crew of twin city auto tliievs have most rascals beaten. They steal cars, take them out through the state and sell them, later “tipping off” the in surance agents who carried policies on the cars and collect the reward of fered. Do you want to do something good and generous for your less fortunate fellow beings in this community this Christmas? Of course you do. Then communicate with the county nurse or the city nurse and they wHI give you the yame of some deserving poor fam ily whom to make happy on Christ mas day with a basket of good things would be a real Christian act. A Washington correspondent of an eastern newspaper says that, barring Lenroot, La Follette’s voice is the only one heard in the Wisconsin delegation at the national capitol. Had he inter viewed Secretary Mellon he would have learned that one “Jim” Frear of the tenth district, had not only been heard, but had been felt. Frear is not classed as a radical at home. He has done good work for his district and lias kept his constituents informed on what was going on in congress. When the last primary rolled around he had no opposition. So erudite a publication as the Bos ton Herald ascribes Adolphus P. Nel son’s defeat for the nomination to con gress in th;s district to a refusal to take orders from Senator La Follette. Whether he was asked to submit to orders from La Follette or not, we do not know, hut we do know he took a bold stand on the right side of the pro hibition question and he undoubtedly lost thousands of votes by it. Old sup porters right here in Ruskeonnty cut him for Peavey on this stand for pro hibition l>ecause they considered the Volstead Act the paramount issue. The northwest will have a repre sentative on the United States supreme court if the senate confirms the ap pointment of Pierce Butler, St. Paul attorney. Senator-elect Shipstead, of Minnesota, Senator La Follette, and others are opposing confirmation on the ground that Butler hasn’t a judi cial mind and has been a corporation attorney. Most successful attorneys who have become known through their profession beyond the -confines of their own states have had as clients at some time or another large corporations, but that does not imply that they are dis honest or could not be fair in matters before a court in which they might sit as judges. It does show that they arc recognized as able lawyers. It is fairly easy to trump up some sort of a charge against any appointee. Great Britain said right along that she was going to pay the huge loan which she got from the United States. Now. she says it is impossible. Ger many says that it is absolutely impos sible to pay the European Allies ac cording to the terms of the reparations agreement. But Germany it is re ported, is seeking a loan of a billion .•and one-half dollars from the United States and newspaper dispatches indi cate that she has fair chance to get it. Are we going to send good money af ter had, or to repeat what has proven to have been an unfortunate financial transaction? Poor people right he-e in Ladysmith lorrowed money at eight ■per cent to buy bonds under war stress to help make these loans to the European countries. Had we not bef te’* bec’n to think of our own people when it comes to making more loans? If the big financiers of this country want to make the loan it prqbablv can not be stopped, even if the people want to stop it: but let them make the loan and take their own chances; they :have most of the money of the country, anyway. If the United States make another loan, you will be taxed later in one form or another to pay it. LET JUSTICE DICTATE JUDICIAL NOMINATIONS The storm of protest caused by the nomination of Pierce Butler, corpora tion attorney of St. Paul, to be Asso ciate Justice of the United States Su preme court, shows the growing evil effect of tarring the judiciary with the political brush. The first reform in our judiciary might well come in recognition of the principle of civil service to which this country is committed. No man should lie raised to the dignity of the United States Supreme court until he has dem onstrated his breadth of mind and un derstanding and proved his judicial ability. Nominations for the Supreme court should come from the United States circuit courts or some other United States courts, perhaps even from the Supreme courts of the sev eral states. Such a practice would raise the standard of the lower courts in addition to the further safeguard ing the rights of the people. At pres ent the lower courts offer little to at tract the ablest attorneys. The salar ies are inconsequential and if. plus this, promotion is to be denied, if men who have served faithfully and effi ciently are to be set aside at the be hest of political hucksters who in turn are dominated by corporation powers behind the throne, then contempt for the judiciary will soon reach the dan ger point. Such appointments as But ler’s may cause a demand for the peo ple to elect their judges and with a right to recall them. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR The News-Budget wishes all of its readers and advertising patrons a Mer ry Christmas and a happy and prosper ous New Year. The editorial staff, ably backed by all of the workers on the News-Budget force, have been doing their best to put out a newspaper worthy of the territory it serves. The hearty co-operation of the bus iness men of the city of Ladysmith and of Rusk county, who have taken space to place their goods before the busy buying public, have made a paper like the News-Budget possible. Last, but not least, our readers have contributed their share. Without sub scribers a paper would be useless for advertising purposes. The subscribers are the life of any paper and the ad vertisers are its life blood. Without both, a newspaper could not exist. We want to thank the whole commun ity for what they have done in our behalf during the past year. May this happy business relation continue so that we can keep the News-Budget up to the high standard we have set for it.

MORE MEN THAN WOMEN HAVE APPENDICITIS Medical reports show men are more subject to appendicitis although many sudden cases occur among' women. It can be guarded against by preventing intestinal infection. The intestinal antiseptic, Adler-i-ka, acts on BOTH upper and lower bou r el, removing all foul, decaying matter which might cause infection. It brings out matter which you never thought was in your system and which may have been poi soning you for months. Adler-i-ka is EXCELLENT for gas on the stomach. Griffin’s Drug Store.

My kid neys did not act right and as Doan’s Kidney Pills had been highly recom mended I used them and was cured of the trouble.” Price loc, at all dealers.

When Weeps Seems like a far cry to think of your motor shedding real tears. But it does weep and for good cause, too, when you feed it cheap, low- grade gaso line. Big, actual life-like tears shroud piston heads and cylinder walls. They are formed from the unexploded kerosene vapor of inferior gasoline. These tears are dew-drops of trouble. They wash the oil off cylinder walls and pollute the oil in the crank case. Such gasoline keeps a motor constantly in distress and a constant visitor to the repair shop.. • Energy True Gasoline will give your motor anew lease on life. It will make it care-free, efficient, and smooth-running. No tears shed with Energy—nothing but powerful explosions of high power gas. No “heavy ends” left behind, because every atom of Energy is power. Energy is genuine, straight-run gasoline, the natural yield of virgin petroleum crude.
