Government Needs a Doctor v Not a Propagandist This of flco is in receipt of a pri vate letter commending the editorial of April 25 relative to the national Industrial problems. . ' Now, this letter came from the of fice of the Committee of Forty Eight. This committee seems to be the residue of the body of men who met last fall in the city of St. Louis, whose business it was to make the two old political parties forswear all their un-American and unprincipled practices. The meeting resulted in a Babel of tongues and they all scat tered except a few I. W. W. mere Beems, nowever, to do an ei fort to preserve the original ideas in the movement the principle one of which is government ownership of the American' railways. " The' Com mercial admits that the two old par ties are guilty of many, many, sins, and that they deserve, both of them, to be condemned for breaking faith with the : people, even onto bribery and corruption. With this admission we also confess to having scored the national Congress and administra- rlnna Vinth nt tlipm fnr nnlitipftl knavery, graft and most all the other crimen in the category of politics. We did this, but God forbid that we should ever have to condemn either of them for government ownership of the American railways. I Of all the monumental. mistakes of republican government that would be the crowning blunder. If we are to vote twenty billions of dollars to the owners of the railroad securities and sell bonds to do it in order to own the railroads it will cost us, with the pro3ont war debt hanging over us, forty billions of dollars altogether to float the bonds. Capital would there fore clear twenty billions, because it is hardly po3siblo tho bonds could be sold for more than fifty cents on the dollar. In the payment of the origi nal twenty billions the Government would no doubt be giving capital an extra bonus of something under ten billions. That thirty billions is then la the name of doing something won derful for the American people, the first crack out of the box. Next, the Committee of. Forty Eight is going to organize te sys tern of American railways so that the people who own them could, with government management, operate them at cost. No doubt about it, but what about the cost? First, we mu?t acknowledge that a model system could be worked out It would be a regular automatic, chain Bystem, with duplication re duced to a minimum and the distri bution pf rolling stock and construe tion work handled like clock work, wheel within a wheel, all working together with complete harmony. It sounds grand. Red taperules and every fellow has his place. If he doesn't do but an hour's work a day 'he cannot be used in any other de partment. That, however, is but Will there not be new depots, sheds, sidings, free transportation, and political jobbery galore?. Inside of ten years we venture that patronage and pay alone of railroad em ployees would . be doubled. That would bo four billions a year. The equipment of local stations would be by political pull and more billions would be necessary. But what about the political end of the string. With all the present government forces and the addition of railroad patronage, would itN be po;jsiblo to change cdmini3trations? No! with the advent of govern ment ownership it would be gcodbye to republican government. Socialism would enter in its stead, and all the in3piration of honest competition, in centive, rivalry, ambition would be pooled in a common cause, (ollowed with a collanse of industry and a decadent civilization. No, Arabella; there should be a revival of political Integrity and patriotism, ' honest government and all that but It cannot be done by men who are promoting false doc trines like these. -, Mcthinks the Committee of Forty- Eight Is In a conspiracy against the great majority of the American peo ple: either that or that they have been hypnotized with the most flat ulent fallacies. giving the necessary bath, noting the symptoms and reporting them for the doctor, means in many case3 that our dear ones will be spared to us. - But such a nurse does more than this; her visit may last only an hour; the remaining twenty-three hours of the day are to be accounted for and she teaches us how to make use of every one of them to help get our sick well. She is a teacher as well as a helper; sue brings light to dark places and shows us the path that leads from disease to health. We may pay a small sum for this service if . we are able; we need not if we are unable, but in either case we cannot fail to feel the deepest gratitude for a plan that will put such a person rendering such services within the reach of us and our loved ones. We can have a nurse if We will; this caring for the sick is but one of her many duties. She contributes in many other way3 to the health and happiness of the comunity and we will tell more about her another time. Truly, a3 an asset for com munity i improvement tne use or a Public Health Nurse is one which must be considered. Contributed by Department of Nursing, Southern Department, American Red Cross.

The Committee of Forty-Eight has put the two old po litical parties on their good behav lor, bursas the leopard changed his spots? With this big government owned industry there is an additional patronage of two billions a year. Do you -suppose with the red tape and the flesh pots that politicians will not create still an additional patronage to operate these roads. If you don't you are very credulous. Do you suppose that communities won't do as they are doing now with the U. S. Navy asking for appropriations for naval stations at the mouth of every inlet. Godless Endeavor. The Commercial Appeal, discuss ing the subject of education in the Sunday paper, had quite a little in common with the baccalaureate ser mons we have been naving this SDrinar. Fir3t. warning the educa tional head3 that otudents of voca tioual training are too prone to get the education and after they get it too big to follow the vocation, while in a general-way conknending our educational system, maae it quite clear that the education of the mind without the education of tjie soul is a fiilure. Th9 subject of Godless things was tho inspiration of a oermon by Rev. Burge3s Cunningham last. Sunday night at the Cumberland Presbyte rian Church. The suggestion of a Godless marriage led to other human institutions in which men who for get God find themselves adrift with out anchor or compass. " All this reminds us that "Man pro poses and God disposes, and that na tions; like men, must submit to the wisdom of .God. Therefore the ques tion of disarmament stirs the church and God-fearing men and women to rebel against the monster naval pro grams of tho great nations. These nations, already staggering with debt, are straining every resource to command tho seas and the commerce of the world; they are exhausting money and means in tHs giant test of naval strength while hundreds of thousands of people are ctarving to death. Is this human? Is it an ex ample of the spirit of -Christ? Can we ignoreNthe injunction, "Feed my sheep?" Will the nation which forgets God survive? What vzill it benefit the nation with the greatest navy in the world .to face ho wrath of God? Religion without God is a hollow mockary. Neither men nor nations can succeed in a test of power with God. And thta competitive, naval ri valry in the face of present cpndl tions is, wo tear, a Godless institu tion. The announcements of R. H. Bond for County Court Clerk, and Armour Ratliff, for Trustee, appear In this week's paper. These gentlemen are offering for re-election, and. ask in dorsement for a second term. They have made fine official records, and it is to be taken for granted that they will have the support of the prl mary committee and people at the polls. s Mr. Watt Cherry's-nnounce ment for Sheriff also appears in the regular announcement column - An Interesting Family Group.

Public Nurse Has Many Duties, In thinking of the work of a Pub lie Health Nurse we naturally think first of help in caring for the sick, and therefore, it 1b well to know something of how she performs this important piece of work. First of all let us assume that we cannot af ford, or what so often happens, that we cannot secure even with money the services of a trained nurse. But we have a case of illness in the home, say typhoid fever, Influenza, diph theria or any acute illness and no one in the house understanding glv ing the care that the Illness demands if our patient is to get well. Not all the willingness and love and anxiety nor fond -desire will enable porfectly untaught, and inexperienced persons to give the typhoid fever patient the bath that will reduce the tempera ture and help save the precious life, Again let us suppose that not a mem ber of our family understands taking temperature, counting the pulse or watching the respiration of an in fluenza patient, and yet these things mean lite or death according to whether : they are observed intelli gently and accurately or the reverse, and o&reful record of them kept for the doctor to see on his next visit. In diphtheria and many other dis eases, there is grave danger for many other members of the family and very great danger also for the life of the sick person unless we know how to care for him properly. Therefore, in acute illness we NEED A TRAINED AND EXPERT HAND AND MIND to help us protect our sick. The Public Health Nurse, making a daily visit, The first time a man succeeds in kissing a clever girl she looks at him In a way that makes him wish he had got busy sooner. RESOLUTIONS. Whereas, it hath pleased the Di vine Providence to remove rrom our midst our beloved brother, W. J. Da vidson; therefore be it resolved: 1.

That we as a Sunday school ex tend to the bereaved family our heartfelt sympathy in their hour of sorrow. .5. That these resolutions be re corded in the minutes of the Sunday school, that copies be sent to local papers for publication, and that a copy be presented to the family. G. W. TUCKER, Chairman. W. W.
