Stale and County Newspaper) Congress Now Can Fall To Now the session of congress comes to that period when the proceedings should be as melodic as the sounds from a boiler shop. All the concatenations of legislative pro* cess are about to break loose. The holiday recess held them up. Reassembling of the lawmakers will release the pent-up dam of controversy. In both houses the controversies will be given a po litical tinge, in view of the approaching primaries and election. It is too much to expect unbiased legislation. The prohibition issue is expected to bring on the most heated debates in a long time in congress. In the senate, the question will be forced into its deliberations by the resolution of Senator W. J. Harris (Dem., Ga.), calling for a report from President Hoover's law enforcement commission. The house will have a big fight over prohibition when the annual treasury appropriation bill comes before It, probably within the next two weeks. Legislation sought by the administration for the transfer of enforcement activities from the treasury department to the department of justice also will bring on a row as will other pending bills, such as the Sheppard bill to make piwchasers of liquor equally guilty with sellers. The tariff also is calculated to be a disturbing issue. Sidetracked in December, it is to be brought before the senate again with a view of keeping it almost continuous ly under discussion until it is disposed of. Administra tion leaders ace predicting its passage by Lincoln's birth day or by February 15 at the latest, but the possibility of almost interminable debate on many of its controversial features gives no assurance that it can even be passed at that early date. Already it has been before the sen ate since early in September. If the tariff bill is passed by the senate by the middle of February, it will mean it will take probably until April or later to complete enactment of the legislation. A se rious deadlock between house and senate conferees is likely and more than a month is certain to be necessary to adjust differences between the house and senate bills. The agreement to keep the tariff before the senate to the exclusion of other matters hardly will operate to bar the prohibition issue. It is understood that a morning business hour will be provided occasionally to allow other matters, as the Harris resolution, to come up. If the Haltien resolution receives approval of the senate committee on foreign relations, that also will come up in these morning business hours. The house approved the resolution authorizing the president to send a commission to Haiti before the holi days. The senate committee has not as yet taken it up and inasmuch as there is considerable hostility to the granting of authority to the president to name a new commission either for this or any other purpose its fate is in doubt. While the senate is wrestling with the tariff, the house will be concentrating its efforts on the annual appropria tion bills. The house passed two of these bills before the holidays, those relating to the interior and agriculture departments. Both are now pending in the senate com mittee on appropriations. Other bills which are nearly ready to be reported from the house committee on ap propriations are the army bill, the treasury and post office bill, and the state, justice, commerce, and labor bill. The house will do little else but act on appropria tion bills during the month of January. Committees in both houses will be engaged in hearings and the preparation of numerous important bills. • Pre liminary work on the rivers and harbors bill which will bring on one of the big fights of the session will start at once in the house committee on rivers and harbors. Included in this bill will be an authorization for federal completion of the Illinois state waterway project. It is expected that the bill will be reported from committee in February and taken up on the floor of the house in February or March. Prisons and Babies A tiny sentence in a newspaper story sometimes will provide more food for thought than all the rest of the newspaper put together. There was, for instance, a recent story telling of condi tions in Auburn prison, in New York, where two bloody riots took place in 1929. This story, after reviewing the now-familiar story of over-crowding and antiquated equipment, added that conditions are best in the women's wing of the prison, "which houses 115 inmates—and three babies.” You can chew over that last little stinger in that sen tence for quite a while; but no matter how you chew over it. you'll never be able to get anything but an al mighty bad taste out of it. ‘‘—and three babies!” In the most populus and wealthy state of the richest nation on earth, in the twentieth cen tury of the Christian era, we have somehow found It necessary to keep three babies in a state penitentiary. You might just remind yourself of that the next tim-i you find yourself feeling that everything is for the best in the best of all possible worlds. And it isn’t as if Auburn prison were the only of fender. Probably every state in the union could duplicate this record. In the evolution of human stupidity, no way has yet been found of sending a mother to prison without inflicting a worse punishment on her It isn’t anybody’s fault, of course. It all comes, quite naturally, out of the fact that we aren't so very much brighter, or more sensitive, than our second e°H ltw * the hairy apes. It works like this, you see. A woman is convicted, say, of shoplifting. A prison sentence is in order. The woman has a year-old child. The child, naturally, has to stay with its mother. To let the mother escape punish ment merely because she happens to have a «m*n baby wouldn’t square with our Ideas of justice. (Yes, that’s she wood we use.) So off to prison goes the woman, and qsf goes her baby with her. rrsbably they fix things up very nioely for these prison babies No doubt there are pretty little cribs behind the barred doors, and it’s undoubtedly possible to have •ertifkd milk delivered at the prison gate each morning Jt may be that we are even humane and enlightened enough to permit toys to be smuggled In. What the ultimate effect of it all may be on these ’Met bsttes is net, of course, any concern of ours. We’d hate to bo caught coddling our criminals, and a criminal’s . My. if it has to get Its start in life inside a prison, can’t v: he showed to upset the normal routine. And if such a grows up with a warped outlook ea Ilia, and itself- becomes a criminal later on, that surely isn’t our fault We’ve done the best we know how to do. Yes, we do our best. And that’s the tragedy of it. 1! we were mere than three degrees removed from the level of the chimpanzee the bare announcement-ihat there was even one baby in prison, anywhere in the land, would stir us to a yell of protest Wt would rock that prison to its foundations. Three babies in prison! We are, truly, a fine, cultured and highly civilized people! I The Pricelessness of Keepsakes A couple of holdup men entered s New York shoe store the other night, pointed their revolvers at a CO-ycar-old clerk, backed him Into a corner and proceeded to relieve him of his valuables. The old gentleman didn’t have much, but what he had they took. They took everything, that is, except a cheap ring he was wearing. That he refused to part with. The gunmen got angry and threatened to kill him. He was obstinate, although the ring, obviously, was not worth much. They persisted, he hung on to it—until, at last one of the thugs got tired of arguing about It and shot him to death. Now this provided a brief mystery for the store's man ager and the police, after the holdup men had gone. Why should the old chap have clung so desperately to a little, tarnished ring that could be duplicated for a dollar or two in any store? Then it was learned that the ring was a keepsake which the old clerk's dead wife had given him, years ago And that, of course, cleared up the mystery. There wasn’t anything puzzling about it any more. Or—was there? Wc can understand, of course, how the man felt; but can wc even begin to explain the much deeper mystery that lies back of It all—the mystery that Is Involved in every building up of affection's memories and sentiments about some reminder of a be loved phantom? All of us, to some extent, share in that sort of thing. For everyone there is some token of the past that is dear beyond words. It may be something cheap, even slightly ridiculous—an old ring, a withered flower, a broken toy, a faded snapshot—but we would not part with it. It means, sometimes, as much as life itself. Why should this be so? Perhaps it is because we all know something that we do not often talk about—that the world is, at bottom, a terribly lonely place; a lonely place, and often a cruel place. We cannot make a go of it by ourselves. We have to feel that somewhere in the universe there is another spirit we can touch. But these others, on whom we depend, go away. So we cling to the inanimate objects that they used, or wore, or gave to us; and, by clinging to them, we conjure up ghosts; lovely, comforting, companionable ghosts, that make life endurable and keep us from going mad with loneliness. Yet it is still a mystery. We have air moments of doubt, in which we are not quite sure whether we are lonely because we are such a long way from our true home, on the other side of the stars, or simply because we have no home there at all, and are eternally adrift in black night. So we clutch our trinkets close—and de fend them with our lives. Editorial Comment ‘Our Failure in the Philippines’ (Minneapolis Tribune) In the current issue of Harper’s, Henry Cabot Lodge, grandson of the late Senator Lodge, has an article en titled “Our Failure in the Philippines.” Young Mr. Lodge recently investigated conditions at first hand in the Philippines. Mr. Lodge is of the opinion that our continued reten tion of the Philippine islands Is a mistake. He concedes the United States the merit of good inten tions in the Philippines, but he believes that Americans arc congenitally incapable of appreciating Malay psychol ogy. He thinks the American attempt to transform a sprawling archipelago of tropical. Oriental islands into a centralized nation on the western, twentieth-century plan is impractical. Because we are seeking to impose our own psychology upon a people animated by a stub born psychology radically different from our own we are, in Mr. Lodge’s judgment, getting precisely nowhere. In deed Mr. Lodge roundly insists that we are doing the Filipinos far more harm than good. We are turning crowds of American-educated natives wanting American luxuries Into a land economically unable to support them. Not only are we doing the islands more harm than good, but they, in turn, according to Mr. Lodge, rep resent more of a liability than an asset to the United States. The argument has been made that the islands are use ful to us because of their nearness to the Chinese market which, a few people believe, will some day be very im portant. Mr. Lodge doubts whether China will ever be a heavy consumer of American goods. In any event he sees no great value in Manila as a trading po6t, for Manila is three days away from South China, and a week away from Shanghai. Mr. Lodge is convinced that every military argument lies against the retention of the Philippines. The nearest completely equipped base, Honolulu, is 6,000 miles away. In the event of war, our little force in the Philippines would merely be a “suicide squad." Were we at war with a Pacific power, the first act of the enemy would be to seize the Philippines. It would then be two years before the United Btates fleet could function in Far Eastern waters with an adequate train and control force, in other words with a force capable of supplying the fleet and of protecting effectively the long line of communication. And why should we be sending our boys over to a wilder ness twelve thousands mile 6 away where they would probably be dying like flies from tropical diseases? Mr. Lodge does not mention the fact that Filipino’ competition in the agricultural field greatly damages the agricultural interests of the United States. He does not mention the fact that the Northwest farmer is annually losing money because of the free trade arrangement now in force between the Philippines and the United States. He does not mention the fact that the Filipino is tak ing a substantial part of the home market away from the American farmer. Yet, in addition to the national consideration, these, to the Ndrthwest and to American agriculture generally, are serious economic considerations. In the event of war, what could be more ironic than to send American farm boys over to die in the Philippines for the privilege of further impoverishing their own families? The cold truth of the matter is that, from-an economic point of view, the American farmers could afford to pay Japan money to annex the Philippines. It is not so easy to say certainly what would be. the best way of ridding ourselves of the Philippines. One suggestion is to trade them to Britain in exchange for the British island possessions in the western hemi sphere. Another is to give them outright to Britain. A third is to give them to the Dutch or the French. The sale ot the islands to a Par Eastern power, like Russia or Japan, has also been suggested. None of these solu tions to as simple as it appears on the surface. Britain would probably refuse to consider a trade; France and Holland might well refuse to take on any more imperial responsibilities in thq Far East. The acquisition of the Philippines by Russia would probably anger Japan, and the acquisition of the Philippines by Japdh would not only anger Russia, but would alarm the Dutch and send cold chills up the spines of the Australians. Dangerous international complications might result. The Tribune to not disposed to minimise the difficulties of ridding ourselves of the Philippines. One result of our free trade arrangement has been to unfit the Filipinos for competition with their natural trade competitors, the Javanese, the British Malayans, and the Indo Chinese. The standards of living ot those competitors am about a tenth as low as the Philippine standards. That is the main reason why—lf we are in earnest about fulfilling the independence pledge—it to grotesquely* unfair to the Filipinos to keep them dependent upon the American market, a market which would be cut away from them the moment they achieved their political independence. The Tribune does not feel that it possesses the perfect formula for liquidating the Philippine adventure. But it <wes feel that the time has arrived when American officialdom should make a thorough study of the whole subject, with a view to deciding upon that particular baoge of severing ties which would occasion the least Imeniatimkal disturbance. - ■ . . ... ; . .

Who is It? . . . Oh. hello. Uncle Pat!" be cried. "Lieutenant Strawn's lust been here.

It seems that Dowd has a job soliciting subscriptions for The Morning Neves." “Good! That makes it easy to get a specimen of his real band writing.” Dundee replied. "He printed his name in the Rhodes House register—and very amateur ishly; an obvious attempt to dis guise his penmanship." “Well. boy. if you get anything definite on him. don’t give him too much rope. He might use It on you," his uncle ail vised with a laugh which was not exactly mirth ful. rtUXDEE hung up the receiver. "Good old Uncle Pat! He’s certainly giving me the breaks. . . . Now what the devil was that dream? . . . Ob’ yes. secret pas sage!” lie grinned. ‘That loos eued board in Dowd’a closet has been clapping bard against my sub conscious. all right. . . .

Any other time I’d have got a sight of pleasure out of see ing Dusty June-around like he’s done today. Lieutenant Strawn said there wasn't nny call to change the locks, but 1 though the folks might feel better—and safer." She sighed heavily, as she handed towels and key to her newest boarder. “Thanks, Mother Rhodes! It was kind of you to go to nil that trou ble and expense." the boy said sin cerely. “By the way. I suppose that loose board in Dowd’s closet has been nailed down?” “I made Dusty ’get around' to that yesterday." Mrs. Rhodes said, smiling wryly as she quoted her husband’s favorite expression. “So that’s that!'* Dundee said cryptically. He did not explain tbat halt the mystery which had been tormenting him bad been solved. Granted that Dowd was Dan Qriffln and the murderer, be would have been forced to leave his room and enter Mrs. Hogarth's by windows. Rut there still re mained tbe puzzle of why Cora had been murdered at her east window, instead of at the f>utb one. “I ought to be getting back down stairs," the landlady sighed again. "Mrs. Barker, poor soul, is resting in my room now. Bhe’s all worn out. what with reporters around, and tbat Lieutenant Straws pawing over Cora's things before he’d let her pack ’em. 1 guess he didn't find any clues, because he said it would be all right for her to take them away with her. She's taken a great shine to Bert Magnus. Says Cora wrote her how much she thought of Bert, and poor Mrs. Barker was counting on Cora be ing happy at last ... Oh. dear!" she sighed again, as she started to rise. "Just a minute, please. Mother Rhodes!" Dundee detained her apologetically. "I can’t ask any one else, and 1 must know lust what sort of man Arthur B. Wheel er Is. What he looks like. 1 mean." “You ere hard up for somebody to suspect, aren't your’ Mrs. Rhodes gibed, as she sank back Into the armchair. “Well. 1 guess you know your own business. . . . Arthur Wheeier is about 27 years old. more’n six feet tall, skinny as s snake, and so light-complected he just misses being an albino. His eyes are so bfue they look tike a new-born baby’s, and I guess they're about as strong as a baby’s too. because be wears glasses with lenses nearly halt an Incb thick. They make htm look like a scared rabbit—** "Then It wasn’t Wheeler who broke his glalsea not long ago.” Dundee interrupted, memory flash ing back to tbat broken lens he had found la thy trash bag In the base ment. "It was Bert Magnus that broke his glasses." Mrs. Rhodes Informed him. "though It beats me how you know. Jewel was frolicking around him at breakfast one morning about two weeks ago, sod knocked bis nose*ptacbers off. Mr. Sharp recom mended him to his own oculist sad Bert had a new lens by dinner time.’ "Thanks. Mother Rhodes," Dun dee said cheerfully, but mentally he chalked up another disappoint By Ahern THE TREATMENT FOR COLDS The best time to knock a cold out is when It first makes its appearance, because once it becomes established, it will generally last from eight to ten days or longer. Unless a cold turns into some more serious disorder, it is self - limiting. After it has run its course, it ceases to be. Many people, knowing this, do not give a cold any treatment except to give it time. It should be remem bered, however, that when a cold oc curs, the body is trying to throw out waste products through the mucous membranes and it is better to assist the processes by opening up all of the body's channels of elimination. One should drink large quantities of water in order to thoroughly flush lout the system of acid wastes. The bowels should be thoroughly cleansed by one of two enemas daily. Activity of the pores of the skin should be in creased by several sponge baths daily and it is a good plan to induce copi ous perspiration by a sweating treat ment. After the emena, the patient should take a hot bath and get into bed, using only woolen bed coverings. Hot water bottles should be placed at the foot of the bed if necessary, and the patient should be thoroughly tucked in so that no air enters under the covering around the shoulders. While the patient is perspiring, it is a good plan for him to drink an in fusion made by pouring boiling water over a grapefruit which has been cut into small pieces. After the mixture has been allowed to stand for awhile, the patient should drink the juice, using from four to eight ounces at a time, about every half hour. Do not use other food until the cold has abated. The patient should be permitted to sweat as long as necessary until there is no abnormal temperature. The sweating should not be interrupted for any reason during the first ten hours. When the temperature be comes normal, the patient should be given clean clothing but kept well covered for several hours longer. It is better not to take any exercise during the first day of this treatment, but after that it is well to gradually Increase the exercises each day in order to gain strength. It is also well to remember that one of the princi pal causes of colds is fatigue and that therefore sleep is a most valuable remedy. If you employ this regime at the ment. “Tell me more about Arthur Wheeler, like the lamb you are! M 46T AMB!” Mrs. Rhodes snorted, but she was not displeased. “He’s got a funny little pug nose, and a mustache about the size and color of a toothbrush. All the girls laughed at him. he was so comical looking. and I guess Daisy was tbe only ons that ever spoke a kind word to him." "And Daisy is probably wishing now that she had been as hard hearted as the other girls." Dundee smiled. “I can understand why she so resented the coroner’s asking her if she was ‘romantically inter ested’ In Arthur Wheeler. . . . Well, again—that’s that!" he added, dismissing the homely inventor as a possible Dan Griffin. He expected Mrs. Rhodes to hur ry away then, but unaccountably she lingered, her Ungers nervously pleating tbe lace ruffle of her jabot. Finally she flung up her head and demanded defiantly: “Listen here, young man! Have you got sense enough not to go off half-cocked If 1 tell you something I ought to have told at the inquest this after noon and didn’t?" Dundee’a neart leaped, but -ht answered quietly: “I think i have." “Well. 1 don’t suppose it amounts to a row of pins, and to tell you the truth t forgot all about it last night when Sergeant Turner was putting us all through tbe third-de gree. trying to find out what we knew about poor Cora’s death.” "Yes?*’ Tbs boy waa trying bard not to appear impatient. "Well, last night while all you folks were in the parlor, with Cora playing and Bert singing. 1 called Jewel to the phone, and then l stood in tbe doorway for a while, listening to the music. Then Cora stopped playing and she and Bert talked real low. and it looked to me like they were getting engaged, or at least coming to an under standing. I haven't kept a board ing-bouae for IS years for noth ing!” “And you were right, as Bert ad mitted at the inquest this after noon." “But 1 wasn’t sure then, and 1 thought if 1 dropped iuto Cora’s room after ahe’d gone upstairs she might tell ms all about it. If there was anything to tell. I was mighty fond of Cora, and l wanted berto be happy. . . . Well. It must have been about 11 o’clock when 1 went up. but I didn't knock on Cora‘a* door, for 1 beard her and Jewsi quarreling, and since 1 didn’t want to havo anything to do with It. 1 went back downstairs.” - "Quarreling f Dundee echoed, startled. “You’re sure you recoc nixed Jewel’s voice?” * *Of course 1 am! You know bow shrill her voice is! Besides, tht door waa ajar, and 1 could see her ae well as hear her, though neither of them taw me.- She was sitting on the edge of Cora’s bed and Cora was standing at her dresser, braid ing her hair." The landlady shud dered at she recalled to what hor rible use those braids had been out just two hours later. “Did you catch any of the actual words spoken?" Dundee urged.

B. writes: “I have at frequent intervals extreme dryness of mouth and throat, in which pe riods I find difficulty in swallowing foods. What is the cause of tills ail ment? And wliat remedy should I use to prevent such rescurrences?” Answer: The dryness of yotir mouth and throat must be caused by some inflammatory condition of the ali mentary canal Such disorders as gastritis, enteritis, of colitis set up a feverish internal condition which is often noticed in a reflex way by dry ness of the mouth and throat. The cure would be to regulate your diet so as to get rid of the internal irri tation. Treatments of the mouth would be of no help. Overeating Question: F. D. writes: “I would like to know what is good to keep a person from getting sleepy in the cvc ings. after they have had a "good night’s sleep the night before.” Answer: The one definite cause of feeling sleepy early in the evening is from overeating. No matter how lit tle you may eat the evening meal, it is always too much if you : r eel sleepy afterwards. Perhaps when you re turn from work, you are so tired that you should go to bed for a little rest before dinner. One who is over-tired needs rest and not food at that time.
