The State’s Clubwomen
The convention of the Suite Federation of Women:
Clubs at Dickinson affords an excellent periprtuve <-n
the woncu’s dub movement ot North Dakota. It reveals
it as highly organized, of widely diffused alms and r,c- ,
tivitics and filled with a sp'rit rkin to that of a cru adr.
It exists in the sphere of cultural development. i:i the
field of domestic arts, has been dipping into the domain
. Of. politics and embraces a wide range of ethical outlook j ]
...North Dakota clubwomen arc organised more com
prehensively and operating on a fcale of greater aecom-
. pUshmcnt, probably, than those of any other agricultural J,
state. The East with is industrial and historical bad:- ,
ground has the incentive Tor extensive clubwomen activ
ity. There are so many more problems for women to deal
with there, because they are the problems of working
women, of literary anti art workers, of wives and mot he-s _
of morals, of politics, legislation, uplift and charity. Out {
here In the great wide open spaces the<-c sphere arc rr
ttrictcd. Here there is home making to be encouraged,
child welfare legislation to be sought, critical.on to be _
fostered, tastes for music, art and literature to be c;o ,
veloped. some political activity to be indulged ip and the .
ideal'of womanhood to be exalted.
The clubwomen of tills state have not been recreant .
to any of these purpose.". They have given ur. tin d'.y .
of their time, thought and energies to ail the varied i h
jectives of the North Dakota Federation. They have baa
able to report progress and hold cut hope for furtk r ad- .
vancea In their program for making this a better dr-'.'
and life in it ampler, brighter and richer.
Not a little of the success and progress of the North.,
Dakota club movement lias been due to being linked up
with the extension services centering in the Agricultural
college at Fargo. Out cf that institution has come the
help by which a wide field in the domestic environment
in the state has been cultivated by trained workers en
tering the home life, lifting and leavening it. letting ;

- •An Emergency to Remedy
Tire conference which A. L. Bavone. state sanitary en
gineer. has called, to be held hcic October 15 ad 15. ought ,
to assume an importance not foreseen earlier i:i the sea
son wheh the idea of getting together the water ar.d
sewerage superintendents of the state first developed.
In the last few weeks a serious situation in both cf j
these departments of municipal functions has arisen.
Due to the long drouth, which has prevailed here as
elsewhere, North Dakota is finally getting around to the
stage in which other drouth-alflictcd communities in -
other regions have found themselves weeks ahead of this <
state. Water sources are alarmingly low at many points j
on the lesser streams of the state ar.d this no. only af
fects the potable supplies but implies fire hazards and';
pollution through inability to dispore of sewage through
nature's flowing channels. j
R. E. Kennedy, state engineer, has boon over the en
tire state and has taken note of the degree of emergency
created by the drouth. He has found some streams al
most dried up. Others have so little flow that they are •
unable to carry off the sewage poured into their chan
nels. Where these also have to furnish the water supply
the emergency is doubled.
Here, then, is a situation of the gravest menace to
health and protection, whether considered from the
standpoint of water supply or sewage disposal. It ought
to furnish a pressing topic for the water and sewage con
ference to discuss, driving home upon the various cities
and towns the gravity of letting such a condition recur
and awaking them to the need of steps to end the menace
permanently. In matters of water and sewage, many of
them have shirked their responsibilities too long. They
need to be stirred out of their sluggishness and neglect.
It is an economic necessity that they act now as much
for their own benefit as for the welfare of the state.
The new bureau of sanitary engineering, furnished
North Dakota by the Rockefeller foundation and main
tained by it. has been in existence too short a time—
sinct iast fall—to grapple with the state-wide problem of
water -supplies, and sewage disposal. Other problems as j
of milk, of sanitary legislation by the municipalities and J
of garbage have drawn upon its time and on the energies j
of Engineer Bavone. What is needed is the awakening j
of jr spontaneous spirit, of cooperation with the bureau j
on file part of the towns. Engineer Bavone is a trained
technician and so is Engineer Kennedy. Moreover, the
- latter is sb full of ambitious energy that he recently com
-I plained his office no longer affords sufficient work to
i mate the Job interesting. Here is an emergency calling
far wise technical action, and the communities which
I \ feel, the inconvenience and menace of this situation in
theirwater and sewerage functions should get behind the
two officials In devising some permanent relief.

Imperishable Empires j
You her and read a pood deal these days about “the
American empire.” !
Ike word “imperlsli:m” has come into common use.
Every time an American manufacturer builds a branch
I factory in some foreign country it is called into play; to.
! likewise, every time a European government floats u new
i loan in Wall Street.
It is a rather clamorous word. It carries a suegeMicn
| ol waving banners, mighty ships and supreme dominion;
! a :u-yrxticn that invariably pleases and excites the
1 sturdy democracy of these United State:. Everyone seems
to take it for granted that America is entering on a pe

The Foi'est Fire Problem
(Great Falls Tribune)
Comparatively few Montahgns as yet realize the extent
of damage done by forest fires within the state’s bound
aries this season. Taken as a whole, they constitute one
of the worst catastrophes this state ever has suffered.
Thousands end thousands, of acres of virgin timber has
been destroyed, many homes have been ruined, great
watersheds impaired and nature's pristine beauty marred.
Even when the exact area traversed by flames has been
ascertained, it will be impossible to calculate the damage
done. The value of a watershed cannot be estimated
cazily. The worth of a great landscape cannot be fig
ured in dollars and cents.
It is apparent, however, that the disaster is one which
. will be generally felt. It will be felt by the nation to some
’ 1 extent, but by Montana to a greater extent. The forests
1 j arc an asset as necessary to our well-being as pur rivers,
s J or our mines, cr cur .farms.. The utility of our wooded
, ; hills and mountains is not solely in the timber they yield,
’ | but in the water they conserve and the glorious back*
1 ground they provide for recreation. We can ill afford
1 to lose any of it.

Incredible Speed
> i Duluth licralg) •
, It is no longer accurate to say of the flight of an air
’ plane that it is as fleet as a bird on the wing. That isn't
1 fair to the airplane. No bird can fly, even under the
i spur of fear, faster than a hundred miles an hour. Sat
» urd&y Flying Officer R. L. R. Atcheriy of the British
Schneider cup team flew at the' rate of 332.49 miles an
No man or bird ever moved that swiftly before. In
deed, Atcherly’s speed is almost incredible. •
A 1 mile a minute has long been thought pretty last
1 going for a train or an automobile, but Atcheriy flew
t better than five and a half miles a minute.
* If you say “Here, he comes!” it will take you about a
second. If you hed started to say it when Atoherty was
84 feet away, before you had finished the third word
he would have been a block past you.
e At that rate, if he could keep it up, Atcheriy could fly
c from Duluth to St. Paul in less than 23 minutes, end
. from Son Francisco to New York, 3,130 miles, in a little
a more than nine and a half hours.
£ Many people have believed that if a man falls from a
d great height the terrific speed of his fall will take his
h breath away and leave him unconscious before he strikes
the ground. But actual tests have shown that a- man
cannot fall faster than at the rate of Ut miles an hour,
is and Atcheriy flew nearly three times that fast Saturday

Fiances is 18. Most parents lose
their children’s confidence long be
fore then. At some time during the
early years they unwittingly put be
tween their children and themselves
the barriers of protective reserve.
Early in the game most children
discover that the things they have
whispered into mother’s ears at bed
time or shyly told to daddy on a
Sunday morning walk have been told
abroad to friends and relatives as be
ing amusing, precocious or “cute."
A young child is too naive to de
mand secrecy before he gives his con
fidence. He simply trusts and finds
himself betrayed, his most intimate
feelings and shy revelations published
to dreadful, tactless, patronising
grown ups.
No wonder the average child has
learned to guard himself from this
sort of thing with the armor of si
lence where his personal feelings are
concerned. Whatever he treasures,
loves, or hopes for he keeps to him
self. The parent who never meant
tq betray a confidence finds to his
dismay that he cannot “reach" his
child while he flounders through the
confusion of growing up.
Keep faith with your child. Let
your love for him sharpen your in
tuition so you will hold inviolate the
confidences he intrusts to you. Never,
never let wiki horses drag from you
something which he has asked you to
keep secret.

In yesterday’s article I wrote about
the exercises necessary for develop
ing a strong chest in order to prevent
asthma, but after a case of asthma
has fully developed such exercises
cannot be taken during the first part
of a cure. In a typical case of either
bronchial or cardiac asthma it is first
necessary to free the diaphragm from
any pressure due to excessive stomach
or intestinal gas, and to get rid of
any large amount of mucus which is
clogging the lungs and bronchial
tubes. The quickest way to accomplish
these results is through the fasting
and dli* treatment.
‘The asthmatic patient should first
start on a fast, either using plain wa
ter or, besides a large amount of wa
ter, using a small amount of fruit
juice. Orange or grapefruit Juice
seems to be best suited for this pur
pose, but in some bad cases it seems
that quicker results are secured if
the fruit juices are left out and only
plain water is used. All fruit juices
contain a considerable amount of su
gar, and sometimes this continues to
produce too much flatulence. The fast
should be continued at least until all
wheezing has disappeared, but some
times it is not possible for the pa
tient to entirely eliminate all of the
bronchial mucus during the fast and
in some cases a slight whistle will con
tinue for some time, due to the pres
ence of mucus in the bronchial tubes.
A few days after the breathing be
comes normal and there is no oppres
sive tightness to the chest, the pa
tient may start on a three meal a day
plan, using a reasonable amount of
eggs, meat, fish and other proteins,
together with the good non-starchy
vegetables. The following is a good
plan at this time:
Breakfast: One egg, prepared in
any manner except by frying. Choice
of one of these cooked non-starchy
vegetables; spinach, asparagus, string
beans, summer squard, cucumbers,
celery, carrots, parsnips. A small dish
of stewed fruit such as prunes, raisins,
or figs. Not over three prunes at
first, or a corresponding amount of
other stewed fruit.
Luncheon: Choice of one or two of
the cooked, non-starchy vegetables
listed at breakfast. Also one of the
same vegetables may be used un
Dinner: The same kind of vege- 1
tables as at lunch, with the addition
of one-fourth of a pound of either t
lean beef, mutton, chicken, fish or i
rabbit. This diet should be continued c
for at least several weeks, and one 1
enema taken each day, providing the 1
bowels do not move two or three times s
daily. No starches or sugars should i
be used, and no milk or cream. These c
foods should not be added until the t
patient is entirely free from catarrh- 1
al mucus, and until several weeks <
have elapsed without a return of any
On Sept. ae. 1815, the Holy Alliance
was formed by Russia, Austria and
The league was fwined after the
fall of Napoleon, at the instance of
Alexander I of Russia, nominally to
regulate the relations of the states of
Christendom by the principles of
Christian charity. ,
Alexander drew up the document,
which was signed by the three rulers
in Paris. In addition to the original j
signatories, Naples, Sardinia, France
and Spain acceded to the treaty. It
received the commendation, but not
the signature, of the Prince Regent of
Qreat Britain.
The document was formally made
public in the Frankfort Journal Feb.
2. 1818. As formed in the mind of
Alexander, the league was the scheme
of a pietist ie idealist, but it was util
ised by Metternich as an instrument
of his reactionary policy.
It was in the name of the Holy
Alliance that Austria in 1821 crushed
the revolutions in Naples and Pied
mont and that France two years later
restored absolutism in Bpain.
Apart from this use, one writer has
said. “No one of the princes who ad
hered to the Holy Alliances, with the
single exception of Alexander him
self, ever took it seriously."

The deep breathing exercises sug

Heartburn After Meals
Question: Mrs. H. J. writes: “£
have severe attacks of heartburn af
ter meals. I would like to know what
causes this and how to get rid of it.’’
Answer: Heartburn simply means
over-acidity of the gastric Juice, and
is caused by bad combinations of
foods, wrong kinds of foods, condi
ments, too much liquids at meals, etc.
A teaspoonful of baking soda taken
just after the meal will relieve the *
heartburn, but a real cure can only
be obtained through removing what
ever cause is producing the trouble.
Btewed Fruit and Oatmeal
Question: W. H. K. asks; “Is it all
right to use stewed prunes or figs or
applesauce with a breakfast of oat
meal porridge?"
Answer: It is all right to use
stewed prunes, figs, raisins or apple
sauce with a breakfast containing real
wholewheat or real oatmeal, but a
combination of these stewed fruits
and plain starchy food does not seem
to work so well together, causing ex- <
cesslve flatulence.

Question: J. K. H. writes: “My
skin is slowly turning a dead white 4

fully, and used several medicines,
both internal and external, but to no

the trouble, but I am becoming dis
couraged and am going to give up un

Answer: A good fast for a week or
