Jamestown vs. Valley C’ily
The light is on!
|n”a recent issue of the Jamestown Sun appeared
an editorial under the heading "We Need Mm
Booster?),” telling of tile success on*' peter /appal
had encountered in that city in Eh* operation ot i
confectionery ami ice < ream parlor and incidentally
doing considerable boasting lor the Stutsman county
ia* The editorial contained a brief reference to
.lamestawn neighbor on the east Valley City.
The Valley City Times Record editor was appar
"ent.|y very much aroused by the Sun's rays and the
following day devoted his editorial column to •'<
bitter denunciation of the Sun editor's stand and •'
lengthy hymn of praise for the city in the valley.
Sim,, (he buttle of wordu promises to wax hoi
and both editorials prove interesting reading, they
tire reprinted herewith:
Jam'stown Sun: A little over eight
years ago, Peter Zappa.-, came to Jamestown
and opened the Palace of Sweets, lie had
a comparatively small stare and live em
ployees. Since that time he luis increased
the size of his establishment and improved
and increased its service. The number of
employees have been increased from t hue
lo time until today the Palace of Sweets an I
tin* new Zappazone employ t lirty two per
uns. In discussing the substantial growth
which big business has made 1 in Jamestown
with ;i representative of the Smi today, .Mr.
Zappas said, “Many p* pie io Jamestown
have said that I am a plunger, hut I have
tried to wmk along the iines of your slogan
of 'a digger and better Jamestown' and have
tried to anticipate tin* need for better serv
If Jamestown had a l'ew more "plungers”
of that type—men who can catch the vision
of tiie place that Jamestown should lndd as
the social, educational mid business center

wiio can so** that Jamestown's trading ter
ritory is not hounded by the College on tin*

Jamestown would not only outdistance Val

Valley City Tinies-Recurd : The *v«*
from flu* Ja most own paper savors a lit tl»*
of jealousy, we think. In tin* first place
Jamestown lias not “,500 more people than
Valley City if they will leave out a 1 rout
U.OOO that inhabit the asylum on the hill,
which they probably count twice. If Valley
City couhleil the 1,1*5 students attending
the State Teachers’ College every summer,
there would lie very littlui difference be
tween the two cities. If the Northern Pa
cific should lake the division headquarters
away from Jamestown which there is some
talk of doing that city would simply he a
flag station. They have already lost the
hip mill and the only tiling that keeps the
town on the map is the Northern I’heilic
Railroad. The Sun speaks of Mr. Zap pas
being a booster, lie probably is, and so lar
as we can see is the only guy in the town
who seems to have any signs of real life.
If the town hud a few more of his kind it
might wake up from the dead anti become a
place of life and animation. Valley City
never did claim to In* larger than James
town, in fact we claim nothing in common
with any ether city in the State; what we
do claim, though, and truthfully, is tint
Valley City from its location and natural
advantages is the prettiest town in North
lin kola —'so conceded hv all people whose
minds are not biased. We have two transcon
tiimntal railroads running through here
giving us far better railroad connections.
We have a Stair* Teachers’ College—stu
dents not counted in the census whose
business each year and whose presence on
our streets make this «ity it more lively
place than up at the Stutsman County cap
ital where the inmates are of necessity kept
locked till. There are some up there whose
predilection for telling untruths should be
locked up also. We mention no names, but
l *:ive that for Editor Hansen to guess at.
Valley City has more miles of paving by
twice as much as Jamestown and will prob
ably pave a whole lot more the coming sea
son. Valley City has done more building
the past year and more improvements than
Jamestown has done for the past few years
and title prospects are that this city will do
a whole lot more next year. Jamestown will
never he a better town than Valley City,
because we have far more superior loca
tion, better farming country, and a bunc i
of substantial people who make it a point
to get together to advance the interests of
the city, and.* in addition to our splendid
facilities it is a city of music and culture
such as is hard to beat anywhere. We have
built more new business houses the past
year, more new residences than Jamestown
iias built for several years. Speaking of
enterprises, we have two wholesale fruit
houses, one of the largest wholesale grocery
houses In the State, one of the largest
nurseries In the country, a fiber mill, the
biggest flour mill in the State—running—
a flae gas plant, one of the finest municipal
light and water plants in the country, the
same freight rates that Jamestown has—and
•the only thing we haven’t got is Mr. Zap
,, we have oitr new' Crystal Confec
tionery whteih Is much better. We are glad
Jamestown has Mr. Zappas—he is the only
live wire we have heard of outside of our
Charley Robebtson of our city, who went
up there, put up a fine h* o ™ and opened a
great business and put a little new -life into j
the city. Outside of that, people are mov
ing down here to reside just as last as we
can get places for them to live in—we cant
build fast enougrii to take care of Jamestown
people. Jjiinestown is a nice little town to
drive ;o once in a while by way of diver
sion. The trouble is that when you want to

Editorial Comment
!Vlr. Nye’s Post*
(Largo Forum)
Mr. Gerald I*. Nye, Senator designate, is making
a herculean Jittempt to satisfy the Senate leaders
of Iii s Republicanism. The ghosts of his anti Ad
ministration editorials dog his steps unmercifully,
however, and lie is cutting ji poor figure.
Housed temporarily in the Senate building, ho
is making the corridors ring with praises for Mr.
(’oolidge’s efforts to ameliorate the farmer’s suf
ferings. He teMs the newspaper boys that he is
glad that the President has “recognized the con
ditions of farmers of tlu* northwest and that he
will have something to offer in the way of relief.”
The President, recognized the condition long
months ago and Mr. Nye could see nothing in his
program, but. of course, that was before Mr. Sorlic
had H'lectel him for Senator.
Ho says now! that the Northwest fanner does
m;t ask “any innovations’’ and does not demand
any more than any other industry, hut it is not s'
very long ago that Mr. Nye was calling the Ad
ministration names because it did not guarantee
the farmer a. price for his wheat. lie says the
farmers are “perfectly capable of taking care of
themselves if they are given only half a chance
to make their efforts count for something,” but
during the last session of Congress he openly flayed
Mr. (’oolidge for taking the same position.
The farmers are taking care, of themselves. They
are solving their own economic problems in the
most effective way without Government aid. And
Mr. Sorlie hits appointed Mr. Nye Senator. These
two things make all the difference in the worul, at
least until the Senate has acted. If seated, Mr.
Nye can go hack to his old nostrums and bedfel
lows. If rejected, he can return to the State and
take them up again. Rut in the meantime, he must
pose in false face.
Hokum and War Debts
(Philadelphia Public Ledger)
For a period of particularly -transparent, hokum
in governmental finance, Italy richly deserves some
sort of recognition. The government is raising
funds to pay the war debt to America through vol
untary contributions. Five million Italians are
asked to give $1 each to cover an annual install
ment. The king and queen and other members of
the royal family contributed their share for five
years to come.
There is no double implication in this scheme —
first, that the Italian tax rate has reached the limit
and that it could not raise even $5,000,000 a year,
more by regular methods; second, that the mere
raising of money in Italy makes possible the pay
ment of the debt to America. Roth these points
are palpably false.
If Italy.can raise $5,000,000 extra a year bv vol
untary contributions .the same amount could be
raised by taxation. And if the ability of Italy to
raise $5,000,000 a year .'has anything to do with
Italy’s capacity to pay, can any one say that the
contribution could not. be made $2 a person?
The truth is that Italy might he able to get SIOO,-
000.000 a year through taxation of through volun
tary contributions—or both —and still not -be able
to pay America this amount. Capacity to pay de
pends upon the economic balance. If Italy, as an
entity, gives to hie rest of the world a surplus of
goods and services over that which is received, tin
amount equal fo this surplus can bo paid upon a
foreign debt. This surplus has nothing to do with
tlie amount Italy can raise through taxation—still
less with any amount which can be raised by vol
untary contribution. The reason behind the scheme
remains, so far, unexplained.

ofthe TWINS
The Twins were very much ex
cited when Dubbins, the groom, went
away, and came hack shortly lead
ing two of tin* smartest hlack ponies
they had ever seen.
Their bridles and saddles were
made of bright shining leather which
gleamed like gold against t.ieir
satiny Mack coats.
“And see here, Dubbins,” said the
kind hunter who had ord *red the
ponies for them, “takes these chil
dren into the lodge there and give
them some hunting clothes. There is
a girl’s riding habit and some for
the boy, too a red coat and stiff
derby hat, and hoots for both.”
Dubbins went away followe 1 by
the Twins,' while the hunter held the
ponies' reins.
Soon they all came hack and Dub
bins helped the children to mount,
Nancy on Nihbs and Nick oil Scoot,
and a finer pair you never saw. Even
Nancy had a little hard hat, like the
ladies wore, and a black riding habit
with a skirt, mind you, and in
stead of riding cross-saddle like
boys do —and a lot of ladies, too,
nowadays- she rode sitting sideways
with her knee braced against a funny
stick-up place on the saddle.
Nick looked grand in his scarlet
coat, tight trousers and shiny boots.
Suddenly a horn sounded some
where. The dogs harked more loudly
than ever and everybody began to
ride toward the gate where th fox
hunt was to start.
“Where shall we go?” Nancy asked
the man who had attended to every-1
“Just follow the crowd,” said the]
i man. “You need not ride fast if you |
; don’t wish to. Your ponies are very I
gentle they will take you safely j
; across fences and ditches and |
i streams of water without jolting you
l in the least. Don't be afraid.”
The gate was opened and away
; went the dogs with a bound.
I And the horses seemed fairly to
j leap through the air after them, so
anxious wore they to be gone.
I Nibbs and Scoot went after them
! like* the wind, but so easily did the
j ponies move, that it was no trick at
; all for the Twins to stay on. Never
; had they dreamed there could be
i such ponies! It was like riding the
i rocking-horses on a merry-go-’round.
j But, of course. hor«'*s can r-> f a« f "r
j than poikies, and after a bit the !
j Twins were far behind. Tln-v cou.-l
| still hear the baying of the dogs and
i the shouts of the hunters, 'hut they
1 seemed to he alone.
“Say, Nancy,” said Nick, suddenly,
“do you know what all this is
about? They are after one poor
little fox! if I could see him first,
I’d hide hint so the dogs couldn’t
get him.”
That gave Nancy an idea. “F.et’s
try.” she said. “Look there! They
are all coming hack. The fox must
be coming this way."
And tin'll, what •!<< you think! Mis
! ter Blue Cap spoke up. lie had been
hiding under Nick’s long coal tnil
! alf the time.
“I heartily agree with you, chi!

Surgeon General, I’. S. Public

If you remember your physiology,
you wil] i e cal I that it is from the
lymph that the cells of the body
obtain tiieir food supplies- water,
salts, fei meats and oxygen and it
is through the lymph that three
cells discharge their waste products
- cai'hondioxide, urea and other
If you place a small parchment
sack of salt in a bucket of water,
you kn-.v that in a short time the
water will become salty and salt
will become wet. Salt has passed
thriiogfc the thin membrane of the
sack into the water and the water j
has traveled by the same course into
the salt. This process is known as \
osmosis and the communication be
tween the lymph and the blood is by
osmosis through the wails of tin*
blood vessels and through definite
connections between the lymph tubes
and certain large blood vessels.
Dropsy is first of all a symptom
and not a specific disease. Dropsy is
merely an exaggeration of a condi

state of health. Lymph is continu

is healthy, this lvinph is removed as

purely mechanical one. The blood
pressure, oftentimes in cases of
dropsy has been raised beyond a cer
tain point. This, in many cases, is
due to obstruction in the veins. Such
an obstruction in the veins may be
the result of the retarding of the cir
culation, a condition found when
varicose veins develop, or it may be
that the obstruction of a vein may
be caused by pressure exerted by a
Speaking very broadly, perhaps
fifty per cent of cases of general
dropsy are due to diseases of the
aorta, heart or the heart and aorta.
The aorta, you will remember, is
the largest artery of the body.
In | radically all diseases of the
heart, there is a natural tendency to
transfer the blood pressure from the
arteries to the veins, and when this
occurs and reaches a sufficient de
gree, dropsy commences to appear in
that part of the body which is
depending, that is, if the sufferer
from dropsy is able to walk about,
the instep and ankle will show the
signs of this condition. If Ihe pa
tient be in bed, the lower part of the
back or lungs may be the parts in
vaded by this accumulation of lymph.
There are diseases of the lung,
also which produce dropsy; these are
usually of blood through the lung.
In such cases, a condition arises
similar to that when the heart is
affected. The blood pressure is
transferred from the artery to the
veins and dropsy is induced in ex
actly the same manner. In cases
where k%idney diseases are present,
the dropsy will he found to appeur
firstt about the loose tissue sur
rounding the eyes.
The important facts to remember
about dropsy are —first, dropsy is u
