Chances are that com paraUvely lev ao far away from his home ever beard or read of his constructive work. Those who did probably regarded it as political bunk and paid little attention to it. Johnson got bis reputation on catch phrases and quotations from his addresses and carried from time to time in the daily press before his political am bitions were so' definitely known. 'Those xsatch phrases, justly or not, have stamped him as against moat everything, especially against the government. They gave the impression that if elected he would cheerfully proceed to kick things to pieces, which is the very thing that a small, but active minority would most like to see done. That the Californian solicits this sort of a following is evident from the fact that he. makes his strongest effort where discontent is greatest. S Senator Johnson may be a very different sort of a man from the kind the majority of his admirers think he is. If so he is getting support under false pretenses, which hardly becomes a candidate for the presidency.

Writing from Texas a correspondent takes issue with the position of The Argus with re spect to Senator Hiram Johnson and the Inter pretation placed'upon the result of the Michi gan primaries. The writer contends that if the senator is a bolshevist Bolshevism is what this country needs and adds: ,., "We need only look into and examine John son's record to And that be has always stood for the rule of the people instead of capitalistic control. On such a platform was he 'elected governor and senator and the promises he then made to the people he has fulfilled. We need mere men of bis caliber to fight the cause of the people. "It is true tha; we may not fully agree with jhia ultra irreconcilable stand' on the League of Nations and treaty question, but far be it from us to1 suspect him of being a bolshevist (not your Interpretation of it)." i"' The Argus does not charge that the senator Is a bolshevist but it docs believe that he is de liberately soliciting the support of people of bolshevistic leanings and if nominated and elected he would be under obligations to live up to their expectations. Senator Johncon may, as the correspondent sayS. " he a real champion of the people, majf have made an admirable record in Cali fornia! Neither the one nor the other, how ever, gives him much of an edge upon his rivals for the nomination. All the other can didates are also proclaimed as "friends of the people" and each "points wth pride" to what he has done to prove what he will do. Johnson did not carry that hotbed of radi calism, Detroit, by 5S.0OO because of the glow ing descriptions printed or written during the campaign of the things he did while governor, nor yet of his championing the cause of the It is hard to see why the law should up hold the one and condemn the other. There are ways to kill meat "without shoot ing up the neighbors. There ought to be ways for parties to industrial disputes to attain their objects without striking at the vital in terests of whole communities and forcing the weak and the innocent to bear the heavy end of the burden. Reports are rer-eived of radical cuts in prices of perishable commodities in certain localities as a result of the freight embargo growing out of the switchmen's strike.

What did you ask. Angelina, child? . . . Was Ouija bored? . . . Ah, yeB. dearie, he was. In fact he was bored to extinction. . . . But his master loved him and couldn't bear to part with him. So a kindly taxidermist made Ouija look al most as good as new and for years after that he disgraced the center table in the home. And now, children, that you have learned how the first Ouija board came into being, you must run along to bed. . . . Good-night, little dears. o Boy!

WE are curious to know if the gentlemen who dug into the mound of Indian relics at Nipnersink Point, Fox Lake, dug up any wam pum". It doesn't matter, however. If he will I place the stuff he did dig up on exhibition oth Acute Indigestion. The old-time ' coroner used to "view the remains," and, not dis covering any signs of violence, reach the satisfactory and econom ical conclusion that death had been caused by "heart failure." The modern -coroner's, physician or tion. The foolishest custom Im aginable is the custom of trying this and that remedy or treatment which is recommended as good for indigestion without any particular regard for the cause of the com plaint. - Acute indigestion ' is still sug- pathologist, not being gifted with ! gested occasionally as a cause of second sight, is unable to deter mine what may have caused the sudden and unexpected death with out making a post-mortem dissec tion. Every hospital interne knows that Tony's invariable complaint, no matter what ails the man. is "mucho dolore" in the region of the epigastrum; and that the symptom which brings Mike Misknovisky to the hospital, no matter what ails Mike, is "mucho bole in belly." In short, all .the devils of disease con centrate their chief attention, it would seem, on the pit ot the stom ach. Mr. Wiseheimer of this country doesn't put on a sad face and groan over his hole or, dolore. He pur chases a choice selection of con coctions purporting to remove in digestion or to improve digestion; after these have been consumed in vain he invests in the latest sys tem of juggling the bills of fare with a view to preventing interne cine warfare between various kinds of food. Just a wee bit of pain in the pit of the stomach, oh. just enough to make one answer shortly and sharply the ordinary foolish ques tions one's family must have an swered, may sometimes be a pro test of the alimentary tube against an overload or a too hasty feeding or possibly a mixture of feed that violates the simple dictates of in stinct When this abdominal discomfort becomes a frequent or regular hab it, or when it amounts to real dis tress, or when it is annoying enough to call for any remedy oth er than time, then you may be sure it is not "indigestion." It may be almost anything but not indiges- death. Almost everybody accepts this but the state health authori ties and the federal census author ities. These people have a way of returning death certificates to doc tors so thoughtless as to write "acute indigestion" in them, with a message that says, "Yes, we un derstand, but even if you don't know you can at least assign a reasonable cause of death in this deplorable case, doctor." Then the wily doctor has to make a stab at it or frankly confess that he did not know the cause of death. "Acute indigestion" is all very well for public consumption, . but the joke is considered a trifle stale in medical circles. QUESTIONS ASD ANSWERS. Rudbing a Goitre. Can a small goitre be cured by massaging? E. A. Answer No. Massage or other local remedies' often do harm in such cases. Roll the Cramps Away. Cn you suggest anything to help painful periods in girls without go ing to a physician? Are so-called tonics for "female trouble' of any value in such cases? D. J. D.. Answer The majority of such cases are attributable to neglected physical education, and corsets are a 'contributing factor. Suitable ex ercises will generally bring relief. Even without exercises, 12 somer saults ever night and morning will overcome the trouble in the aver age case, provided the rolls are not discontinued at the menstrual time. After the alcohol is removed from what purports to be a "tonic" for "female complaint," the rest of the junk is generally inert. loArgus Inf ormaiion Bureau j (Any reader can cm the answer to any auestton by writinr The Arciu Intorma iioa bureau.

It?i4 Battle of the Thames. .Although William Henry Harri son was elected to the presidency as the log-cabin candidate, in the first of our frenzied, parading cam paigns, he was bom to one of "the first families of Virginia," in a manor house on the banks of the aristocratic James. As a son of Benjamin Harrison, signer of the Declaration, with the bloiAl of Pocahontas in his veins, and as a descendant of a Cromwellian col onel wh ) had signed the death war rant of a king, no president has had a longer, more historic line age. With the exception of the Adamses, the Harrisons remain the only family whose, name appears twice in the presidential tine. In ability William Henry Harri son fell below the standard of his predecessors and properly is class ed with the eight or ten mcmio critics who have since had the greatness of the presidency thrust uyon them. He was elected not be- press to watch him he exercised for years almost the despotic power ol a Roman governor over all the vait country lying between the western boundary of the new state of Ohio and the Rocky mountains. Tempt ing opportunities for personal giins came to him, among them an offer of half the land in and about St. Louis. But he left the office with hands as clean and pockets at empty as when he entered it Early in his term there rose among the Indians a prophet, who spread abroad the welcgme gospel that the Master of Life was himself a red man and was about to restore his people to their rightful suprem acy over their white inferiors, who should be trampled under foot. By the side of this religious fanatic stood his warrior brother, Te cumseh. That pair of savage cru saders were restrained for years from taking the war path by Harri son's bold nd skillful diplomacy and by the general faith in his word and his character. The Indians were aroused at last by rumors Of the approaching war of 1812, and they struck th) long-delayed blow. Hut Harrison, with his SOO frontiersmen, gu rather the better of them in a fam ous litli? skirmish at Tippecanoe, Ind.

Editors Nole.) , 'The tale was left off with the party: proceeding through the wilds of Persia, beset by danger of lurk ing': enemies and with discord in . their own ranks. By the time the Tigris was reached the differences within the party had been compos ed and each member was anxious to serve his friends and make trouble for the Turks. The city of Mosul was given a very' large berth, but 20 miles to the north a convoy, of mules loaded with food was captured and the escort of 50 Turkish infantrymen captured. They; escaped the next morning, ' however, livery groupof men was questioned about the Wassmuss, . and i all would glance toward the ' mountains, "whither the com pan y . was riding. A Kurdish chief was met later, and in a discussion with Ranjoor Singh gave much informa tion and the Kurd was promised all the gold if he would ride hack to Wassmuss and say that the gold would, hot come for 30 days,, and agree that he and,, his men would bo' the escort to Afghanistan. . Ranjoor-Singh promised to guard the nans. ' Hostages were arranged for, Land the chief started on. Soon he returned and demanded the gold at Nice. . At last the bargain stood ' that tha Kurd should have all the ' OI4.!' except one chest, on the sev- lih day after Persia was reached The march continued. The Wass muss men were below the pass, but were denied passage, accord ing to the report, and the company slipped around to the rear. But Ranjoor Singh was not there, be ing thought too valuable to waste near the border. There was no doubt Wassmuss was prisoner among the Kurds. Then a new bargain was suggest ed. The Kurdish chief was to re ceive the gold, and the company the hostages, and 10 men as guides, for he was anxious to be about fighting the Turks. But the com pany kept the gold and said good bye to the chief. From this point the text of the book is quoted: To tell of all that journey across Persia would be but to remember weariness weariness of horse and men. Sometimes we were attack ed: more often we were run away from. We grew sick.- our wounds festerad and our hearts ached. Horses died and the vultures ate them. Men died, and we buried or burned their bodies according, or not as we had fuel. We dried, as it were, like the bone-dry trail we followed, and only Ranjoor Singh's heart-was stout: only he was brave: only he had a song on his lips. He coaxed us, and cheered us, and rallied , us. The strength of the regiment was but his strength, and as for the other par ty, who hung on our flank, or lag ged behind as or preceded us by half a day, their Kurds deserted by fives and tens until there was scarcely a corporal's" guard re- afternoon, we saw an Afghan sen I try. Has the sahib ever seen an Af j ghan sentry? This one was gray and old and sat on his gray pony like a-huddled ape with a tattered umbrella over ' his shoulder and his rifle across his knees. He looked less like a sentry than a dead man dug up and set there to scare the birds away. But he w,as efficient, no doubt of that. He had seen us and passed on word of us the minute we show ed on the sky-line; and the hills all about him were full of armed men waiting to give us a hot reception if necessary and to bar farther progress in any case. Aye, sahib, down in India! It was a long road, but the Afghans were very kind to us. providing us with food and blankets and giving some of us new horses for our weary ones, and so we came at last to Landi Kotal at the head of the Khyber, where a long-legged English sahib heard our storv and said "Shabas.h!" to Ranjoor Singh that means "Well done!" And so we marched down the Kryber, they signaling ahead that we were com ing. We slept at Ali Masjib be cause neither horses nor men could move another yard, but at dawn next day we were off again. And because they had notice of our com ing, they turned out the troops, a division strong, to greet us, and we took the salute of a whole division as we had once taken the salute of two in Flanders, Ranjoor Singh sitting his charger like a graven image, and we one hundred three-and-thirty men and . the prisoner Tugendheim, who had left India eight hundred strong reeling in the saddle from sickness and fa tigue while a roar went up in Khy ber throat uch as I scarcely hope to hear again before I die. Once in a lifetime, sahib, once is enough. They had their bands with them. The same tune burst on our ears ma i nine. They must have been as weary that had greeted us that first night uttie ones. They olaved "It Is a Long, Long Way to Tipperary." Then because we were cavalry and entitled to the same, they gave us "Bonnie Dundee" and the horses cantered to it: hut some of us roll ed from the saddle in sheer weak ness. Then we halted in something like a line, and a general rode up to shake hands with Ranjoor Singh and to say things in our tongue that may not be repeated, for they were words from heart to heart. And I remember little more, for I too, swooned and fell from tie saddle. The shadows darkened and grew one into another. Hira Singh sat drawing silently in the dust, with his injured feet stretched out in front of him. A monkey in the giant tree above us shook down a little shower of twigs and dirt A trumpet blared. There began much business of closing , tents and re ducing the camp to superhuman tidiness. "So, sahib." he said at last, "they come to carry me in. It is time my tale is ended. Ranjoor Singh they have made bahadur. God grant him his desire! May my son be such a man as he, when" his dav comes. "Me! They say I shall be made commissioned officer the law is changed since this great war be gan. Yet what did I do conipared to what Ranjoor Sineh did?
