My head ached quite a bit and pains through my back and kidneys interfered with my housework.

EXPLOSION RAISES 2 BODIES Alleged Klan Killings Threaten War in Southern State as Morehouse Parish Is Put Under Martial Law. Mer Rouge, La., Dec. 23^The search for two Mer Rouge men who were seized four months ago by a band of white-robed, hooded men, re puted members of the Ku Klux, ended Friday midnight when a mysterious blast of 1,000 pounds of dynamite brought their decapitated bodies to the surface of a lake twenty miles from the spot where state and fed eral agents had been decoyed to search.

DEFICIT Former Director of Budget Takes Lid Off Records—Business Man’s Accounting Exhibits Facts. Chicago, Dec. 22. —Gen. Charles G. Dawes made public here the sup pressed balance sheet of the postoffice department of the United States gov ernment. “For the first time in the history of this country,” the former director of the budget asserted, “there was pre pared not only a balance sheet of the postoffice departments in terms under standable by the average man, but a report in the accepted business form of the current operations of the de partment for the first quarter of this year.” This report shows a deficit of $16,- 198,000 for the first quarter of 1922. This is at the rate of $64,000,000 for the year. For years the public has been given the impression that the postoffice de partment was self-sustaining or nearly so. Government ownership advocates continually use the federal postal sys tem as an efficient revenue producing institution as an example which it would be well for the city of Chicago to follow. The postal system has been repeat edly urged, locally and nationally, as a model of government operation on a profit-making basis. The report made public by General Dawes indicates that emphasis should be placed on “other causes” when the department as on Dec. 3 —ascribes the deficit for this year to “fire, burglary, and other causes.” WAGES TO GO UP, NOT DOWN Economic System Behind Boost Since 1913 Must Be Preserved, Julius Barnes Asserts.
