"I can highly rec ommend Dr. Pierce's Golden Med ical Discovery to all those, who suf fer with bronchitis. When I was quite young I had diphtheria which impoverished my blood and also left me with a tendency to bronchitis. Every few weeks I would have a spell of sore throat and my bron chial tubes would be inflamed and cause me great distress. I was this way for many years, until I took Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis covery and it gave such great relief I have had very little trouble with this ailment since."

Light months ago the league of na tions sent inquiries to all its members asking them for information as to their land armament and their willingness to reduce it. Only 20 of the 51 : members have yet replied. Those 20, however, include nearly all the important powers except the United States and Russia, to whom the questionnaire was not sent. And their replies are discouraging. The league authorities confess that the na tions of Europe are in no mood to dis arm, and they look for no material prog ress toward army reduction during the next three or four years. Most of the nations are keeping up their armies from fear. Some are keenj nig them mainly for economic pressure on other nations. France's army is pri marily a debt-collecting machine, to squeeze reparation money out of Ger many. Yet that army breeds others by making other nations afraid of France. The economic situation in Europe is mainly responsible, at bottom, for those armies, because it delays war settle ment and business revival and fosters discontent. On the other hand, the armies are largely responsible for the economic situation. There cannot he prosperity until the cost and menace of armament are removed and the soldiers turn, to productive work. . Lloyd George tried to remove both causes of trouble at Genoa, by urging a long military truce and loans for the most stricken nations. But that effort failed. If there is similar failure at The Hague, Europe will continue an armed camp instead of a workshop. GOLFING IN A GARDEN. If some of you golfers could go out into the garden before breakfast and pick your own strawberries, rosy and 'Meet from the plant, you would realize the pleasures of golfing in a garden," says J. Horace McFarland, editor of Country Life. You could loaf in the shady corners of your garden just as you do at the club house. You could have your own fresh, red tomatoes and tender roasting corn just from the stalk. All this for the price of two golf balls two of those that you lost. You don't know the joy of eating until you have tasted such food. It's not the same that you .get down town. The more you have to fight the tomato bugs, the better those tomatoes get. Y'our garden makes a little more of heaven on earth, and it has no nineteenth hole, either. All very true. Yet it may not appeal to golfers. Golf, like fishing and yacht ing, seems somehow7 incompatible with gardening. "Whether that is particu larly good for one is usually good for the other, and the sportsman follows his natural bent. Golfers will be, golfers to the end. The only way to make one into a gardener is to catch him before he learns the lure of the links. It might help, though, to establish a standard set of natty gardening clothes, and arrange that the amateur gardeners should do their gardening in small groups. Representative-' Alice Robertson of Oklahoma says if we followed the lead of the national league of women voters, the country would drift into gyneoeracy. The dictionary reveals that gyneobracy is what some men are mean enough to call petticoat government. It would help a good deal, in consid ering the German finacial problem, to know whether Germany has debased her currency because she couldn't help it or President Harding: "Take it back; you for got the revenue dressing!" By MORRIS RipplitiffRhuitiQs r ran -""IT TfTfc T.m rn ffW 1 LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS f I try so hard to love my neighbors !

'with fold ing of the handf; and Jinx his voice like sawing lumber, beneath my window stands. I try to love James Towhead Baker, whose house is one door west, but he's a sad and tiresome faker who has one ancient jet; it is a bahKand hectic story that Noah shooed away; and that old yarn, so-stale and hoary, James tells me twice a day." I try to love old Thomas-Title, hut I -loathe politics, and hate discussing topics vital with chew-and-argue hicks. And Thomas never tries to twitter of any other theme ; so loving thoughts grow sadly bitter, and sympathy's a dream. I thought one time I was succeeding in loving Hiram Jones, and then he had me pinched for speeding, which cost me fifteen bones ($15). My heart is full of loving kindness, with impulse high and strong, but neighbors, in their willful blindness, all get themselves in wrong. 1 Copyright by George Matthew Adamt Protected by George Matthew Adami because she wanted bankruptcy as an excuse to default on reparations. It is reported that if President Hard ing does not go to Alaska this summer he intends to take a cruise along the rock-bound coast of New England. If he does, we have an idea he'll like the looks of it. A man hung himself recently because some people found fault with him. Should the practice become general the trees would be full of preachers, school boards, doctors, editors and town officials. By the way, how do you pronounce "Tchicherin," the name of the gentle man who heads the Russian Soviet dele gation at Genoa? "Kick-er-in" seems to suit an America tongue.

A Business Manager Governor. (Barre Times.) It, as Gov. Hartness asserts, the state of Vermont is getting only 50 per-cent efficiency out of the money expended for the maintenance of the state govern ment there is a line opportunity for a forward-looking man to work out a plan by which the methods can be improved upon. As a matter of fact, Vermont elected Gov. Hartness with just such an idea in mind, that he would be able to present some progressive policy by w hich the state could go ahead in the matter of state government, as well as in indus trial matters. Gov. Hartness has, as be says, become cognizant of the disease. Perhaps he has the remedy. Gov, Hartnss's idea is to employ a. business manager, at a large salary, if necessary, in order to get the best re sults out of the money being raised an nually approximately $.j.0O0.0tH annu ally. He says we could afford to pay a very large salary because we would save a large amount of money, which, be says, is at present wasted. Supposing Ave should hire a business manager and make him governor of the state as well, paying him the salary which we now pay the executive. Supposing we should call upon the governor to become the ac tual business head of the government, to see that the various departments carry out their work in expeditious man ner and that they co-operate, one with the other, to the end that the best inter ests of the state be looked to rather than the interests of some particular de partment. Possibly that would furnish a part remedy at least for our partic ular state ailment. Today's Anniversaries. 1740 John Gibson, first and third terri torial governor of Indiana, born at Lancaster, Pa.
