Qffllssloirgevermiient for
nicipallties is no longer an experi
ment but has made good in every
city of the country where given a fair
trial If any failure is scored It may
with perfect safety be charged to the
individual and not to the system In
the current number of Everybodys
Magazine is an article on Des Moines
and what has been accomplished by
the commission there and it is a
most inspiring message to other
cities The photographs accompany
ing the story are agreat object les
son within themselves Under the
old plan of government by a board of
aldermen the city was not unlike any
other average American city where
civic pride and interest Is of only
small consideration But now the
waste places have been converted in
to places of beauty and usefulness and
the good work continues The alleys
have been cleaned and paved and
the streets show most remarkable im
provenient Des Moines has been
very fortunate evidently in the selec
tion of its commissioners for their
work Is attracting attention all over
the world And the best part of the
story is that all of the improvements
have been made without adding any
cost to the people Politics have been
eliminated and every dollar of the
public money is put into public work
The same thing can be accomplished
in any city with commissioners of
the same ability and energy

institution a number of Texas towns
are making bids to have the directors

Give children plenty of pure sugar

have little need of cod liver oil
says Dr Woods Hutchinson In

and necessary food You can put the
matter to a test very easily Just
leave off the pie pudding and other
desserts at your lunch or midday din
ner Youll be astonished to find
out how quickly youll feel empty
again and how unfinished the meal
will seem You cant get any work
man to accept a dinner pail without
pie in it And hes absolutely right
The only thing that can take the
place of sugar is beer or wine It is
a significant fact that the free lunch
counters run in connection with bars
furnish every imaginable thing ex
cept sweets Even the restaurants
and the lunch grills attached to sa
loons or bars often refuse to serve
desserts of any sort They know
their business Themoie sugar and
sweets a man takes at a meal the
less alcohol he wants Conversely
nearly every drinking man will tell
jou he has lost his taste for sweets

onr town and contemplates compiling
a directory of the city ofPalestine
