Rock Island Arsenal's Future. The quad-cities certainly owe it to them-it-lvfljrto quickly find out what is back of re torts that practical suspension of manufactur ing operations at Rock Island arsenal is being (contemplated. Especially should they want to know: il dismemberment of the institution is part of tbe program. If wholesale reductions are part of a general policy which will govern kll similar institutions it may be impossible ItOvaccompliBh much, though a protest cer tainly is in order. If private manufacturers for champion's of other localities are putting something over united effort probably will forestall them. Any plans there may be for radical curtail ments of course have had their origin in con gress, which has been moving heaven and earth to trim the budget for the coming year. Months go word came from Washington that con gress was considering cutting appropriations Ifor'the ordnance bureau in a radical manner. SThe scale of the proposed reduction, it was said. Anight scarcely leave funds enough for Rock Is- und arsenal to cover the cost of closing up the lant and maintaining an adequate guard over t. Little credence were given these reports t the time because it did not seem possible fthat congress would go to such lengths in ;Tetrenchment. In view of previous intimations Tword now brought to the arsenal workers' or ganization carries additional significance. People of this locality do not wish the government to continue to spend money for the manufacture of equipment for which there Is no use. That would be indefensible. Of course there are more guns, ammunition, etc., on hand now than the nation is likely to need in the next few years, which probably ac counts for the attitude congress is reported to Jiave taken in regard to ordnance appropria tions. As to removal of departments it has been known that that for the manufacture of leath er and cloth goods has been taken out of the hands of the ordnance department. Whether pared on occasion to sabmit available facts and arguments sad It accessary to employ pressors to prevent the, arsenal from being discriminated against In favor of other insti tutions. Rock Island arsenal bas many advantages tint are not duplicated by any other in the country. In location, cheapness of powev, shipping facilities, organization, etc., it is sec ond to none. Experience has shown that it can turn out not only munitions of war, but goods used by other government departments at a lower price than private manufacturers ordinarily demand. In fact, nnder the arrange, ment that has been in force since tbe signing 'of the armistice, it has been bidding on- govern ment supplies of every kind that it can pro duce and thus, even where it did not actually get the work without question bas tended to secure much more favorable terms than other wise would have been possible. If economy is the desired end and that should be the main consideration of congress it ought to be easy for friends of the arsenal to show where di version of work to other points or the splitting up of the institution into scattered units would be a serious mistake. In the long run it will hardly serve the best interests of the country to brtag war manufacturing to a standstill. Munitions quickly become obsolete. It important that at least the experimental work be kept up. That can be done nowhere to better advantage than at Rock Island arsenal. It will cost a good deal to prepare the plant for an extended period of idleness, and vastly more to resume operations when that becomes necessary. Maintenance and overhead will go on and the government will be getting nothing in return. Even more serious will be the destroying of the working organization which is needed as a nucleus for expansion should an emerg ency occur. The force here now has proved its value. It knows the business of war manu facturing and in time of need could assemble the great quantities of equipment now on hand and get it ready for use in vastly less time than any force that could be hastily gathered. Having nobody to man the arsenals, with hun dreds of millions of dollars worth of army goods stored there, would be the rankest folly as bad as having no standing army. . That there would be any considerable loss of population in the quad-cities if the arsenal force were cut down to a few hundred men is to be doubted. Manufacturing industries here are clamoring for more help and it is believed that every man and woman made idle could get employment at once. Maintenance of the arsenal with a reasonably large force is no more important to this community than it is tc. the entire country as a measure of preparedness. aaaaaaaaBBaBSSSSamssiaMsaaaaaaaaaaaaoa juJhr- ulimthstottf eriiAru: Here lies man's asdent enemy, Bull Care.

Pro fuse sweating in sleep occurs in so many different dieases that "night sweats" can not be considered sug gestive of any particular trouble. People who eat more meat, than they need are likely to sweat ex cessively on slight provocation. Infants, improperly fed, and con sequently suffering in some degree wi'.h rickets are likely to sweat in sleep,, especially about the head. Persons whotake tea or coffee to excess are likely to sweat too much. Sweating limited to one side is usually due to some reflex irrita tion of the sympathetic nervous system, which controls the sweat glands. Excessive sweating of the arm pits may be safely stopped by sponging the clean, dry surface each alternate day for three or four times with a solution of alumi num chloride, one-half ounce, in distilled or rain water, two ounces, and allowing this to dry before dressing. Excessive sweating of the feet may be similarly treated. If there is a disagreeable odor, the feet should be sponged duily with a solution of formalin (Liquor formaldesyde 40 per cent) one ounce, in water, one pint. This should dry before putting on the stockings. ' Another good remedy for exces sive sweating of the feet is finely powdered alum sprinkled daily in the shoes and in the stockings. It is better not to use hot water, but only told water for bathing the feet, and th more rarely they are bathed the better. In bad cases the feet of the stockings may be soak ed in saturated solution of boric acid (as much as the water will Ousted as mayor of New Ulm, .Minn., as a pro-German and just reelected by the people.

Will you kindly -publish receipt for taking yeast cakes for pimples and gaining weight? (J. J. D.) Answer There is no particular recipe. Take one yeast cake, any brand used for baking or bread making, after each meal, or twice a day, for six weeks, more or less, and the dose is easily swallowed if the yeast is stirred up with water, fruit Juice, milk or other beverage. Often it tends to loosen the bowel. Sometimes it seems to stimulate growth. Many individuals declare they have picked up considerable weight taking yeast. Yeast is a nitrogenous food, very concentrat ed; rich in vitamin; sometimes an aid, rather than a hindrance as might be imagined, for digestion, reducing fermentation and increas ing appetite. Now, then, you know as much as I know about yeast. If any reader daresto write and ask whether I recommend yeast for purifying the blood I'll get cross. In order to, forestall uncertainty, let me add that I do recommend yeast, as above, for obstinate pim ples and for obstinate crops of boils, and for no other disease. ' Daily Bathing Questioned. Is it good for me or not to take a daily bath? A man told me it was not good as it removes the natural oils from he skin thus re tarding the health. (R. H. C.) Answer I think a daily bath is advisable only for young infants, invalids, and persons necessarily exposed to much dirt.

(Copyright, 1920, by The Wheeler i: Syndicate, Inc.) , H By Josephine R. .Martin. J Richard -Morton went slowly down Primrose Hill, his face puz tled, his eyes gloomy, his mind filled with bewildering thoughts. After climbing tbe long hill from tbe town with tho prospect of a de lightful evening before him, to be received in such a fashion was be yond belief. Even the box of candy, daintily ribboned and wrapped, had failed to remove the hry chill from the atmosphere, or tile austere aloofness from Christa- bel. nAt first she had been merely dis tant, then sarcastic, and finally bored, and apparently very tired, politely stifling yawns, and glanc ing casually at the clock now and then. Long before bis accustomed time, Richard arose to take his de parture without the usual remon strance from Christabel. '("I've something to tell you, Chris," he had said, drawing ou his gloves; " a surprise for you." v"You don't need to," replied Ctristabel, icily; "I saw it in the paner." .j"Qh, did you?" cried Richard eagerly. "I wanted to surprise you. I am going to bring her up tomor row night and see how you like , Mi:" j.""You needn't," said Christabel loftily.. "I don't care to see her, thank you, even if I were to be borne, and I am not. Now if you 111 please go. I don't care to stand in this draught any longer. v- Good night!" And Richard had felt " hlbiself gently propelled out upon (hit porch, the door closed very forcibly behind htm. -i What could It all mean? Christa bel eurely understood that he loved hdr, although there bad been no : formal announcement of their en--tQkgetnent, and be had been sure she- i hjKl loved him, even though she war '-flirt and a teaae, but what had happened to change her from a lov ing little comrade into a cold, dig nified woman? Evidently she had changed her mind or found someone she liked better. He went on down Main street to his bachelor quarters. As his key turned in the lock he was greeted by an eager whine, and as he opened the dor an avalanche iu the shape of a small brown and white dog launched itself upon him. "Hello. Miss Bonnie, old girl," cried Richard, sitting down in the Morris chair and drawing the dog to his knee. "Good old girl. Lone some while master was away?" The dog whined gently and slobbered over Richard's face with her warm, wet tongue. Richard caressed the sleek bead. "I was going to take you up to see the lady tomorrow. Miss Bonnie," he said, "after I got your new collar. I thought she'd be crazy over you, she always loves a dog; and I was going to give you to her, and you would be our house dog when we were married; but it is all off, old girl! You've been so much ad mired and talked about at the show 1 thought she'd be tickled to death with you, but she says she don't want to see you." The dog answered with a mourn ful whine, and looked up into her master's face with wide, intelligeat eyes. Richard arose, and throwing aside bat and coat, took up the local paper and turned to tbe ac count of the dog show that had been held that week. In one col umn he read the name of the prise winners: "Miss Eonnie, first prize, in Clasg B- Already winner of sev eral firsts. Mr. Richard Morton has just purchased Miss Bonnie, who is considered one of tbe finest Boston terriers ever seen in this town." So Christabel had read of his new acquisition, but why should she be angry? . He turned to the local column: "Our popular young lawyer, Rich-l ard Morton, was seen on the street today with Miss Bonnie. Congratu lations, Dick, say we." A great light dawned upon Dick's face. He sprang to the telephone and hastily gave a number. After a moment a soft little voice came over the wide: "Hello." "Hello, Chris, this is Dick. Now don't hang up your receiver. I want to ask you a question. Did you go to the dog show?" "I did not." came back promptly. "Well, wait up a few minutes, will you, Christ? It is important. I'm coming back, and if you don t let me in I'll ring the bell off. Click went the receiver, and Dick hung his up laughing. "Now, come on. Miss Bonnie," he said, hastily donning his coat and hat. "You will have to make a call in your old collar, but never mind." Miss Bonnie whined eagerly at the prospect of a walk, Had follow ed her master sedately down the steps and up the street. It was after 10, and few pedestrians- were abroad in the quiet little town. Most of the houses were dark but up on Primrose Hill Dick could see the light from Christabel's win dow. As he ran up the steps the door opened quickly, and Christabel ap peared, the same cold, icy Christa bel. "What under the - sun do you want?" she snapped. "I had to let you in or arouse the neighbor hood. What is the matter?" Richard stooped and pulled Miss Bonnie forward. "I want to make you acquainted with Miss Bonnie," he said dramatically, and taking the Daily Standard from his pocket, he showed her the two items, one of which she had" read, and the oher overlooked. For Sf Tonient she gazed at Dick uncomrehendingly, then, as Miss Bonnie? reached up and licked her hand With a moist, pink tongue', she understood. She dropped on her knees beside the dog and kissed the sleek brown head. "Oh, what a fool I was," she said, shamefully. "Can you ever forgive me, Dick?" - And Dick, folding both Chris and Miss Bonnie close, said tenderly: "I guess I can, Christabel, for now I am sure you love me. or you never would be jealous."
