Much discussion has arisen in -the past year over so-called "perfect cli mates" and some doctors have taken the stand that It Is not well for peo ple to come south to spend their win ters. v Fortunately for the nation the num ber of such short-sighted doctors is small, for the greater number under stand that the best medicine for all except the seriously ill Is God's great out-of-doors. Nowhere in the world, probably. Is it possible to live a great er part of the year out-ofdoors in comfort fhan in Florida. West Florida is particularly fortu nate in this respect, for her winter months are just cool enough to be bracing while the summers are as de lightful for the most part, as the most famous mountain resorts. There is a pretty general agreement amoug physicians and physiologists that such a climate as ours is best for most people?, a climate where there Is a reasonable amount of cold dur ing a part of the year; a refreshing variety In clouds, and sufficient rain fall to provide enough moisture for th growth of grasses and crops. ; Pr.

Indications on every hand are that business is commencing to recover from the period of depression which set In late in September and which reached its zenith Just before the New Year, jftany ' local merchants report that sales " are Dickinsr ud and throughout the country reports come in of mills and factories re-opening. Leaders in the world of finance and Industry all agree that better times are already upon us. Roger W. Babson. perhaps the best known business analyst and statisti cian in the world, writing In the cur rent issue of Forbes Magazine (N. Y.) predicts such a period of prosperity for American business. He bases his conclusions on the following ten fac tors: 1 The great mass of people still have the .government bonds ; which they bought during the war. Until these are sold there will remain a big reserve buy in? power. 2 -Mlllions of dollars which here tofore have been 3pent for drink are now being spent on the building of homes, the buying of comforts and general mer chandise. 3 The banking system of the United States is more flexible than it has ever been during any preceding "period of finan cial stress. 4 National advertising has come to stay, and is destined to be m a great force in the producing and steadying of business. 5 The war ha resulted in the standardization of many lines, which causes greater efficiency In production. 6 An impetus, has been given to foreign trade which will con tinue for many years, especially as we how have a great mer chant marine. 7 Seasonable fluctuations in man facturing and selling - are be ing eliminate.!. -A reduction.in taxation may be expected. This especially ap plies to business and profits taxation. -Recent political elections show that the mass of people are at heart conservative and can be counted on to back up a, bus iness man's government. 10 The war made the United States the richest country po tentially in the world. A Helpful Suggestion The emergency tariff bill which went through the house so fast that if a streak of lightning had been chasing it it could not have caught It, Is having the hardest kind of time in the Senate. Of Its progress in the body often referred to as the "upper branch of Congress" the New York Times says: "The ungodly in the enate are act ing as if its time were like Goethe's, everlastingly long and broad. Doz ens of amendments. Jocose or Imperti nent, chloroform sponges of the ene my, are pending or will be offered. Mr. Thomas, of Colorado, ahd Mr. Harrison, . of Mississippi, mean to lighten the slumbers of the unfortu nate project by tacking to it the sol diers' bonus bill and the immigration bill. This process of overlaying pro tection's sweetest child can be con tinued indefinitely. The most unkind - est cut . of all comes from a benator who hides his name from expected and Just obloquy. He threatens to in troduce as an amendment and have read the bill for the recodification of the federal statutes. It Is estimated that the reading of this little trifle would keep the reading clerks busy for a fortnight There is no end to the unworthy devices ,of the adver saries of Mr. Fordney's masterpiece. While it is a humbug bill, it may be hard work to humbug the farmers when all these arrangements for pre venting its passage are displayed be fore their eyes for weeks. About the best thing that can be said about it Is. that it is & deliberate and cynical Joke." Wonder why no one has thought to tack the covenant of the League of Nations to this measure? Quite a number of Democrats professed to be eagerly desirous that It should be adopted. Here is their chance to get Republican votes for it. If the men who Insisted on the adoption of this covenant value dt above .everything else and the Republicans value a pro tective tariff bill above everything else they might get together and rush the emergency tariff bill through amid the general rejoicing of both parties in Congress and of the classes that want to put the farmers to sleep while they go through their pockets. Besides, what good will it do the Re publicans to pass this bill? Tt is as certain as anything in the future can be that President Wilson would veto it and that It would be impossible to get a two-thirds majority for its pass age over his veto. Certainly he valued the League of Nation covenant above everything else on earth or anywhere else and would probably swallow the most nauseating dose of protection to get this covenant ratified. Times-Union. The Associated Dailies of Florida An Institution- The editors of the Associated Dail ies of Florida convened in Jackson ville for one short, day, discussed the business of vital concern to th fourth estate, talked shop to their hearts' content and apparently enjoyed the features which were arranged for their benefit, and now have returned to their respective communities to re sume work as usual. . , "Work as usual" is always apprica ble to newspaper folks. The Florida Metropolis considered It on honor and-a pleasure ta be able to entertain the Florida editors and trusts that each of them enjoyed the activities of the occasion. - This organization of Florida dally editors is a commendable institution. Men of any profession profit by com ing together and talking over the in terest to them. An inspiration Is to be had in the association of individ uals working toward the same goal. Outside newspapers and magazines have repeatedly stated that, as a state-wide proposition, Florida is the greatest newspaper state in the un ion; and the 'statement is justified. The great purpose of the press of this state is to boost Florida, and that the newspapers are greatly responsi ble for the progress that has already been made and the anticipated de velopment few doubt. The Florida press Is loyal to Florida first, last and all the time, and the consistent policy of heralding the advantages within the boundaries, of the common wealth has played an Important part In the forward march of every line of industry. The state, comparatively speaking, is a new one and needs ad vertising from within as well as with out. This Is the part the press has assumed, and- is still pursuing. The daily editors have taken a large share of the task on their shoulders. Say what one pleases, the printed word has far more influence than the spoken word. Ink adds an undeniable emphasis to a statement of facts or to a pretense of facts. History proves this. The daily newspaper is history as it is being lived; tomorrow.it is written. The pres3 not only records events, but it creates them. It Is the supreme power behind the throne. The power in Florida has ideals great ideals, all worthy of encouragement. Florida Metropolis. " THE OLD HOME TOWN " By Stanley 8- 9- PERMANENT WORLD COURT. The Protocol of the Permanent Court of International Justice has been signed by the required majority of members of the league of nations and one 'nation, Sweden, already has ratified the statute by parliamentary action. This Protocol provides that the Statute of the Court shall become ef fective ait soon as a majority, in other words twenty-two members cf the Assembly, have signed and ratified it. At the present moment, therefore, a sufficient number of stales have al- ality. Blue Laws and Sane Freedom Sunday observance Is inborn in American people. Sunday intolerance is repulsive to them. Blue law -agitation possibly has 'done more to de stroy proper respect for the Sabbath than all the preaching has accom plished in trying to increase church attendance. The sincere sctfrners of God and his laws are few. The vilest sinner at last acknowledges a Supreme Being. Whilst there may be many forms of worship, there is in all the world, among6t all-the peoples, a belief that a Higher One guides our d-stinies. The laws of all nations are predi. cated on the laws of the Bible, yet sel dom does one of the laws escape the long course of interpretation by the interminable line of higher courts. It therefore wifuld seem that a very tol erant attitude should be taken by those who believe Just one way about Sunday observance. ' The Seventh Day 3f dventists, who probably are the most devout keep ers of a seventh day for rest and re ligious duties, take the view that we, in America, are all Christians and be lieve in the separation of the church and the state. They see in the de mand for legislation intended to en force Sunday restrictions a return to colonial days when Ihe religious dog mas of a few were enforced by law, and so-called witches were burned, Quakers whipped and hanged, their property confiscated, and the prisons choked with those who dared to wor ship according to the dictates of their conscience. fainaay laws, iney De lieve, lead to persecution. Admittedly. Sunday-is not a day for ribaldry, but. taking Miami as an instance, Sunday can be made a day when those who are occupied by priv ate and public affairs during tho- week, may find pleasure at the beach es, on the rivers ami bays, and by fas cinating, health-giving tours through the country. For those who may not have the privilege of automobiles or launches, there are clean, wholesome and orderly places of amusement. And in Miami, too. church-gdlng is a de light. Preachers and teachers of the Word seek to make services enlight ening and entertaining. The public meeting in Roya"! Palm Park at which that distinguished American, Mr. Bryan, presides every Sunday, is a feature In full keeping with the beau tiful nun-lit life for which his section is named. Enforcement, of church attendance or the application of blue laws mak ing the home like a prison undoubt edly would lead to soul rebellion of far-reaching consequences as to mor- Miami Herald. Duty of American Parents Tb Their Children The influence of 8, proper diet upon the future health of the race is a question that is interesting the sci entists more than' ever before. It is brought prominently to the front by the experience of those European na tions where . the proper nourishment of the children has been impossible hy reason of war conditions. The Ta tlous relief associations that are working In the near and far east tell us , "6t weak, under-nourished and scrawny children who have been kept alive by unwholesome and little nour ishing food, but who give small prom is of growing op into strong, active and efficient men and women. It is one of the most serious penalties of war that its effects do not end with the signing of peace treaties, but go on and on, from generation to genera, tion. It cannot be expected that the present generation of German, French and Belgian children, -the residuom of the war, ill-fed, un-cared for and un educated, will be the equals of their forbears In health, strength or effi cient activities. They will inevitably grow up to be weak, nerveless, spine less creatures, ill-fitted to sustain the burdens they will have to bear. It will take at least . a full century to re cover from the blasting effects of four years of war, because the descendants of the children who have dragged their weary lives through the awful war years, will necessarily partake of their characteristics. .Stockmen know- from experience that an animal stunted jn the first years ,of its life never recovers, and becomes a healthy, vigorous creature. Our scrawny, inferior cattle, and wild, razorback hogs are living example's of this universal truth. To get the best results, growth must be unin terrupted from infancy to maturity That is now impossible in the war ravaged countries, but how about America? We are not living-- under famine conditions, but there is good reason to believe that many children, not always those of the poor either, are not properly nourished. Fond fathers and mothers too often give way to the clamors of the little ones, and give them rich, stimulating food, which often lacks the qualities which go to make strong and healthy bod ies. Most normal children like milk, and the child that Is fed plenty of good, wholesome milk, will grow up tall and strong and healthy, without it they will be ailing, puny and sickly. Par ents owe it to themselves and their children to look after their diet with religious care. Tampa Times. Ch07 THE CtfMNEY ON THE OLD HARKNSS cfV ? BLOCK GAVE WAY "TODAY , -JC- j y of( - li ties before she has given proof of a change of heart ahd a sineere pur pose to make amends for her crimes. Tampa Tribune. Don't Waste Sympathy Defeat is always unpleasant. But defeat for Germany was avoidable. She need not have started the war. Therefore, although no doubt loss of "even one bank of the Rhine" has created a national depression in Ger many, as a noted lecturer said the other day, we question if "sentimental reasons" are mostly responsible for the depression, as he asserted. Nor jan we imagine why Germany should grieve more over such a loss than France might reasonably d should Paris "fall." In any case, it is immaterial what psychological" effect occupation of the left bank of the Rhine by the con querors of Germany has on the peo ple of that country. Starting the war, they should have been prepared for any eventuality prepared to pay as well as collect. If they cannot take their medicine without making wry faces, so much the worse for them. But why should, we be asked to sym pathize with them? It is well enough to tell the facts about conditions In Germany and to paint a picture of German distress, mental and physi cal, that will serve as a warning to others not to emulate Prussianism. but let It always be borne In mind that Germany has got off much easier than some of those criminally attack ed. :v ' 'V- Her way out is through repentance and atonement.

He made a warm fire xot moss, andwhen the children finally crept into the warm bed of skins that lay against the wall, they dropped off to sleep and slept until morning while Ishtu kept watch. But Nancy had a dream. At least she thought it was a dream, but real ly it must have actually happened. How else could certain things have taken place as they did afterward? A bright light appeared to the lit tle girl and in the center of it Nancy saw the smiling features of a beau tiful Fairy Queen. "Don't worry," said the queen with an encouraging nod of her head. T know . that you have ' lost all your charms in the carved box which the Bobadll Jinn stole from you, but if you do what I tell you, you may get them back. Then you and Nickle may continue your journey to the Sotith Pole to get , Santa's toys back from the bad Snltcher Snatch. The wicked Bobadil Jinn will return in the morn ing to see where you are and what you are doing. Be on the watch for him. You will know when he is near by the smell of Hyacinth, perfume. As soon as you smell this scent, wave your left arm three times from right to left and say these words 'Oh, Bobadil Jinn, come hither, Wherever you are, or whither, . You're going from, here to thither. 'Tnstantly he will become visible. The carved box is In his right pocket. Grab it, slip on the Magic Shoes quickly and wish yourselves away." Then Nancy woke up. (Copyright, 1921, N. E. A.) Revelations of a Wife By ADELE GARRISON. How Katie Startled Madge and Lil lian With Grim Fears. "How many more grains are there tonight?" Lillian . Underwood's voice was sharp with anxiety. My voice reflect ed her worry as I answered her query. "Two, one at 12:30 and the last, un til morning, 2 o'clock." "Well, I suppose we might as well lie down and get some sleep. They Vill probably be out on the last train." . "You don't Suppose," I began? then stopped. ' "That they're slipped off the water wagon?" Lillian returned grimly. "That just what I'm afraid of. We will know in a little while, anyway. Harry will begin to telephone me, and keep it up until he gets too lazy to remember the number. Come on, let's get off these clothes andxget into com fortable negligees. We probably shall have a long night of worry -before us." I obeyed her suggestion but I was wild with an anxiety vwhich Lillian did not suspect. My question, which she had' finished for me. had -a&t meant what she had thought at all. in fact, until she spoke of it that possi bility had not occurred to me. . It was a far different fear that was gripping me. I was afraid that Grace Draper had failed to keep the bargain she had made with Lillian to keep out p-f Dicky's way in return for Lil lian's silence concerning the Draper girl's mad attempt to drown me dur ing our "desert island picnic." Whether or nst my narrow escape from death had brought Dicky to a realisation of what. we meant to each other I could not tell. At any rate, he never had been more my , royal lover than in the five days since my accident. Indeed, since that day he had made but one trip to the city be sides this with Harry Underwood, tha return from which we were so anx iously awaiting. When the men left in the morning they had told us not to plan dinner at home, but to. . be ready to accompany them to a nearby resort for a "shore dinner," as they were coming out on the 5 o'clock train. No wonder that at 10:80 Lillian and I were both anxious and irritated. Dicky's behavior toward me since death so nearly gripped me certainly had given me no reason to doubt that his infatuation for Grace Draper was at an end. But no one except my self knew how apparently strong her hold had been on Dicky through the weeks of the late summer, nor how ruthless her own mad passion for him yas. Had -she reconsidered her bar gain? Was she making one last at tempt to regain her hold, upon Dicky? Another thought struck me, one even more terrifying than the other. I had read of desperate women, who. when the end of their hopes came, did not hesitate to kill the men whom they loved as well as themselves. Sup pose I could not keep my fears to myself any longer. "Oh, Lillian," I gasped, "do you sup pose Grace Draper would try to kill Dicky or herself? Perhaps something terrrble has happened that they are not here." Lillian looked at me fixedly. I could see that I had startled her, perhaps had alarmed her. But with charac-j teristic thought for me she hid any fears of her own behind a mask. "Don't worry about that possibil ity," she said, her voice carefully cool and cynical. "The Draper ,1a altogethi er too cold-blooded to do anything like that. If she could have quietly gotten you' out of the wayv I do not think it would have worried her much, but ending her own sweet young life, not she." Her grim contempt quieted me a nothing else could, even though I had a suspicion that she was not quite as assured as she appeared. 1 I brought a rocking chair into my room,; the room which I had given Lil lian for hers while she was with us, and we sai there, silent for the most part, eaching making a pretense of reading, each covertly watching the clock. The old house was very still. Down the hall in her own room Katl was asleep. She had gone up to her room long before. The very air was heavy with fore boding. Just as it seemed that I could not bear inaction any longor, we heard a gmOthered shiek from Katie's room, then the sound of tumbling out of bed, the snapping on of her light, a low groan, and then her feet run ning rapidly down the hall. Lillian sprang to our door, fliyig it open, and met the girl at the thres hold. Katie's eyes were wide with fright, and her face bl.mched with terror. It seemed an effort for her to stand. I pushed a chair toward her, and she sank into it, wringing hce hands together, her face working con vulsively with terror. "Oh, somebody dead. Who dead?"' she asked . wildly. "You no dead, Missis Graham. You no dead. Missis Underwood; But somebody dead, 'I know. Me, Katie, the spirits com ia night and tell me. Who dead?" She sprang to her feet rocking her self in the throes of her superstitious old world emotion. Then she leaned forward and grasped my hand. "Where Mister Graham? He not coom home yet?"'" , She must have read my answer in my face, for she dropped my hanJ and covered her face. "Den Mister Graham, he dead' sh moaned. "Oh, poor Mister Graham. 1 nevaire, nevaire see him again." WHAT BIHDS Al 1Hl3Be? Y .'i til it v -v. g yrgrfff- l IL ive: ske. F)uvT W1ho litKDJ, . SI ... . , VI .
