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
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
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
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
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.
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

MORE MEN THAN WOMEN
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.

OH! MY BACK!
The Expression of Many a Kidney
Sufferer in Ladysmith
A stubborn backache is cause to sus
pect kidney trouble. When the kid
neys are inflamed and swollen, stoon
ing brings a sharp twinge in the small
of the back, that almost takes the
breath away. Doan’s Kidney Pills re
vive sluggish kidneys—relieve aching
backs. Here’s Ladysmith proof:
Mrs. Earl Evans, 513 W. Pederson
Ave., says: “I was annoyed terribly
with a dull ache across my back and
sharp, shooting pains seized me when
ever I stooped. I felt weak and worn
out and after doing a little housework,
I felt lame and achy all over. 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

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. It is not
blended or tampered with in any way, but contains
all the good qualities that only nature can bestow.
Give your motor a cbance. Fill up today on Energy.
