THE RISING TIDE OF INDIGNA TION Ilow long will the American peo ple tolerate the unspeakable practices of the men who are trafficking in alcoholic poisons in flagrant violation of the law of the land? Apparently the limit of tolerance on the part of the public lias been almost reached. If one may Judge by the fervid utterances appearing in the pro liquor press, even the opponents of prohibition feel compelled to save their reputations by decrying the abominations of which their partners, purveyors of illicit liquor, are guilty. The phrase, ‘my bootlegger,” will not so glibly roll off the lips* of those who claim the “personal liberty” to violate anil disregard the law, when it carries with it tho inference that the\ are countenancing and support ing by their patronage a business which tin' Chicago Tribune says “is in tlie hands of men who cheat, steal nid kill, who represent humanity at its lowest h i cl. the most degraded lawbreakers ever known.” The utter lack of principle or even decency of these dealers in illicit liquor is shown by their employment of mere lads as agents and the sale of their deadly poison to hoys and young men and women whenever op portunity offers. These disclosures have aroused in fathers, mothers and other public spirited citizens a righteous indigna tion, and in many communities where heretofore t he prohibition enforce ment officers have found little en couragement. if not open hostility, they arc now being received with cordiality and given hearty coopera tion. Pitiless publicity given the frightful atrocities perpetrated by those hoot loggers is clearing the vision of America, and preparing the way for an explosion that not only will wreck the hoot legging business hut reflect seriously on the men who for their own personal indulgence, have made this business financially sueessful.— Union Signal.

SCHOOLS AND THE LEGISLA TURE The fourth week of the General Assembly, with the session almost half concluded finds the solution of the financial crisis still in abeyance. No bill has been introduced in either House that will insure a solution of the problem. It is primarily one of revenue and it is probable that the friends of the public school system are waiting the passage of revenue laws that will insure sufficent money to carry on the school system at its highest rate of efficiency. WHile no advanced step lias been taken in school administration, it is a notable fact that so far there has been no backward step. Efforts to modify or mutilate the county superintendency act have so far failed. There have been numerous local bills in both the House and Senate affecting county supervision, but so far none of them has become a law. In the flint 1 analy sis these amendatory measures seek to cure conditions due to the person ality of superintendents rather than the system itself. Supervision is an established fact in practically every state in the union and Arkansas was one of the last to adopt it. It has not been given an adequate trial in this state. The law may need re vision and strengthening in some de tails, but the principle is sound and incontestible. supervision has come to stay in Arkansas and while it may he attacked in some quarters, it can not he repealed, for the people will not consent to a return to the chaotic conditions which prevailed before its adoption. Supervision is saving the schools from collapse at this time and the system must be maintained.

Men and women both have votes. Rome day a new era will dawn—an era when kissing, and jolly ing and bunking will not win votes Candidates will be content to pin their hopes upon Hie records of their past deeds. Voters will east their ballots for the man instead of for the in tluenees and associations behind him. The ballot will he pure and right will prevail. Some day, yes—But we don’t care to he around then. Life without thrills is too dull for ns. It takes a wise person to do simple things correctly. Does it occur to you that we are an inconsistent race? For instance— when we go to church on Sunday the preacher tells us of the beautiful side of life and we are uplifted. As we walk home from the house of God we deplore the destructive influence of the frivolity and scandal contained in the daily press—and we are exalted When we have surroundcrj a good din ner we grab the Sunday paper, flop down in an easy chair, and devour the columns of moral tilth that we de plored a few hours ago -and we are human again It’s a gay world, even on the Lord's day. Some people are always ready to make use of the old saying, “there's something rotten in Denmark.” If their smellers were any good they could detect it nearer home. And that's a sermon. You can generally tell a pessimist as soon as you see him. liis counten ance is shrouded in gloom so thick the sun never shines through, If he has a slight toothache he is as solicitous of his jaw as a cat is of her first litter of kittens. If it is a touch of lumbago he walks with a camel's hump. If his head throbs a little he holds it tenderly in both hands. If there is nothing the matter with him he tells everybody who will listen what n terrible condition he is in. Tf nobody will listen he tells it to him self. And he blames his fancied ills upon the shortcomings of others around him Pessimists are alike the world over. That's the reason you can always tell one when you see him Now smile! Tt will please others even if it hurts you.

You won't have to re peat them. The fellow who boasts of his ignor ance unwittingly tells the truth. A man is presumed to be the head of his own family, but too often the head is the smallest part of the body. In the absence of band concerts we can always make music by blowing our own horns. —o— We have never known a person yet who was willing to admit the full ex tent of his own knowledge. And why should they? Nobody wants to hold his limitations up to public view. Perhaps the fact that time waits for no man accounts for so many people never having time to pay their bills. There is nothing good in today for the fellow who is waiting for tomor row. —o— “Take time by the forelock.” says a local wiseacre. But you won’t get trampled upon if you grab it by the tail. The law protects us in that to which we are entitled, but if stops short of going out and getting it for us. —o— Young men of today are quite justi fied in objecting to long engagements. Its cheaper to foot grocery bills. —o— A river is just like our experience in life. The farther it goes the wider it gets. j Work is never so scarce but what a i ..ostler can find plenty to do. —o— If it is true that the good die young it is not to be wondered at that this is a sinful old world. Nobody is han kering to be bumped oft'. —o— The loud boaster is not always to be censured. At times there is no other way of covering tip the smallness of one’s intellect. Cheer up! We may have another European war after all. —o— Misery loves company, even if it increases the misery. —o— Never ntind what the world owes you. It is your ability to collect that counts. —o— The fellow who covets the earth should be content to even live upon it. —o— Keep a stiff upper lip. of course, but don’t let it freeze that way. Never compare your intelligence with that of another person. Self humiliation is not required. —o— Before airing the escapades of your neighbor it is well to remember that he may know of a few of your own. Never marry a man with the ex pectation of inducing him to reform. Hi' might disappoint you hy doing it. If some people had to live by their wits they would never he born.
