There are not enough fighting reds in the U.
S. to overthrow a small city government—mouth
frothers and bomb-hiders are not the stuff of
which government-overthrowers are made.
o
It is easily possible that Lloyd George will live
to reaize that he blundered in saying the allies
could not afford to help Russians get a stable
government.
i
o
Though the House railroad bill has no anti
strike clause, there are Senators willing to bet real
money it will have one when it becomes a law.
Lord Fisher, England's champion bean-spiller,
says, "No politician regards truth from the same
< y
point of view as a gentleman."
-o
President Poincare's visit to London may have
a connection with what is going on in the U. S
Senate
-o
Most encouraging—Attorney General Palmer's
assurance that there will be no let up in the drive
on reds.
o
From all accounts, the Sultan of Turkey is let
ting the other fellows do the worrying about his
future.
-o
There are also a few American D'Annunzio's
who think they are bigger than the gov
—guys
ernment.
o
Walesey got through the Washington dining
all right, and if he missed the wining was too po
lite to say so.
o
If all that's printed be true, New York's bar
tenders now make "whiskey" while the thirsty
line up and wait.
o
Right now the secret of shorter strikes is of
more importance than the secret of longer life.

CONSTIPATION
And Sour Stomach Caused Thia
Lady Much Suffering. Black
Draught Relieved.
Meadorsvllle, Ky.—Mrs. Pearl Pat
rick, of this place, writes: "I was
very constipated. I had sour stomach
and was so uncomfortable. I went to
the doctor. He gave me some pills.
They weakened me and seemed to
tear up my digestion. They would
gripe me and afterwards It seemed
I was more constipated than before.
I heard of Black-Draught and de
cided to try it. I found it just what I
needed. It was an easy laxative, and
not bad to swallow. My digestion soon
Improved. I got well of the sour stom
ach, my bowels soon seemed normal,
no more griping, and I would t&ks a
dose now and then, and was In good
shape.
I cannot say too much for Black
Draught for it la the finest laxative
one can use.**
Thedford's Black-Draught has fox
many years been found of great value
In the treatment of stomach, liver and
bowel troubles. Easy to take, gentle
and reliable in its action, leaving nc
bad after-effects, it has won the praise
of thousands of people who hays used
NO-185
It
WHAT MAKES A HOME
It requires two to make a home. The first honie was made when a woman, cradling in her
loving arms a baby, crooned a lullaby.
All the tender sentamentiality we throw around a place is the result of the sacred thought
that we live with some one else. It is our home.
t \
But, by stealth, a thief—bad health—seeks always to creep in and destroy the homes that
are happy in the certainty of natural health.
The hoirie tryst—the place where we retire and shut the world out. Lovers make a home,
just as birds make a nest, and unless a man knows the spell of the divine passion it is hard to see
how he can have a home at all, for o; all blessings, no gift equals the gentle, trusting, loving comp
anionship of a good woman.
Nature has compounded in her own wonderful laboratories a remedy that will give strength
to throw off germs, resist desease, cure various ills and so build and tone the system as to shut
out the evil that sickness would bring with it.
The gift of NATURE is FERRALINE and it. is guaranteed to do all those who sell it claim
for it. Try NATURE GUARANTEED, ahd if FERRALINE does not help you the distributors wil
refund your money.

LET OFFICIAL SALARIES STAND.
One of the fights that will be staged at the
coming session will be an attempt of the newly
elected officers to have the salary laW repealed, or
at least amended to better conform to their idea!
of what a public official should have. We are ofj
the opinion that the newly elected officers were!
elected with distinct understanding that they j
were to receive a salary for their service and it'
was made plain just what that salary was to be,j
and if they felt that they could not serve and be :
satisfied with the salary offered they should j
have kept out of the race—we dont believe one of ;
them was forced into it. This matter has been
agitated for years and public sentiment demanded
at least a trial and we can stand four years of it
and almost persuaded that there are men who can
be induced to serve for the salary offered if the
nominees do not want to qualify.—George County
Times.
o
INTERSTATE AUTO STEALING A VIOLA
TION OF THE FEDERAL LAW.
Interstate auto stealing is a violation of the
federal law.
If you steal an automobile now and run it to
another state you may be fined $5,000 and go toj
prison for five years, either or both.
If you buy a car that has been stolen in anoth
er state you may suffer the same fate,
Interstate thievery of automobiles is now a
violation of the federal law. We print this for j
the information of automobile thieves and the oth- !
er thieves who buy cars they know are stolen.—
Memphis Commercial Appeal
o
Why make a spread of a million dollars going j
up in a Texas oil fire, and ignore the millions go
ing up in Texas oil stock?
Congressman Voight, of Wis., must have felt
quite lonesome in casting the only vote to seat Vic
Berger.
o
There is a percentage of doubt on the bench
concerning the constitutionality of the dry law, ;
though it hardly amounts to 2.75.
j
■O
Washington may thank its profiteers for In
dianapolis being chosen for national headquart
ers of the American Legion.
o
Scooping in the reds won't be complete until it
includes speakers who denounce the government
for the scooping.
-o
Either Europe is in a bad way or all the Am
erican correspondents over there are confirmed
pessimists.
-o
Even political bosses are changing—Murphy,
of Tammany, has begun to bring libel suits.
