If there was a luxury tax on language Re publican attacks on the League of Nations might be somewhat profitable. There will be 78 fashionable colors for wom en's gowns represented In the line to be shown next spring. That speaks well for the enter prise of American dye makers but how woulJ you like to be a saleswoman in the suit de partment with such an array for customers' inspection? It was most kind of Austria to prepare a perfect alibi for the German ruler in connec tion wi-h the starting of the war, but it has come out a little too late to be very convincing. Besides, it is too obviously In line with propa ganda to put a HohenzoIIern back on the throne. There is every reason to suspect the, new Austrian red book of German authorship. Road Work for More Volunteers. Work done by members of the Rock Island liotary club and others on the Milan road con stitutes a good start. At least as much more remains to be done to make the going passable in the village of Milan, and then there will be the problem of maintenance to be dealt with later. Milan is not in financial condition to perma nently improve Us main streets. Much of the traffic through it is of a kind that is of no local benefit and it is not fair to expect the, village to provide for handling it without some outside assistance. Volunteer work seems to offer the only present solution. A great deal of gravel will be required to put Water street up to Main and Main south to the village limits in shape. Once that is done perhaps the vil lage will be able to maintain it. If the Cheney lane road were given a little attention much travel from west would be di verted to that route and the. wear on the prin cipal streets of Milan would be considerably reduced. Formerly practically all of the traf fic to ar.d froiu the lower end of thai county tame via the lane, hut it has been neglected In late years, tiie grade has been flattened out and mudholes in the lower stretch are the rule rather than the exception, taking the year through. Here is a work that a common grader can do, with perhaps a few loads of gravel or tand dumped in the low spots. Certainly peo ple living in the lower end of the county and residents of the city whose business takes tliem out that way would appreciate any im provement that might be made on this road, for it is a few blocks shorter than the route now most generally traveled. What Kind of Man Is Bullitt? Who is this man Bullitt, who secured a place with the American peace delegation un der false representations and then because his own bit of work for it failed to measure up to standard undertook to dibcrej.it everything that was done? What were his motives and to what extent can his word be relied upon? These are questions a great many unpreju diced observers have been asking ever since Eullitfs testimony was given before the senate committee on foreign affairs. The best answer is a dispatch from Edwin L. James, special correspondent at Paris, and printed in the Chi cago Tribune. The Tribune certainly has no special interest in discrediting Bullitt's testi mony, but the story it carries does just that. Bullift's plan, according to the Tribune correspondent, was for the allies to recognize the soviet government of Kussia and then ask Lenine to grant an armistice. Lenine, it ap- pears, was the author of this Idea, insisting that the aliies make first proposals, and nat urally it waa discarded as unwoflhy'of se rious consideration. Bullitt then demanded an interview with President Wilson and when it was refused he became sulky and said he waa going to the Riveria, there to "lie in the eand and watch the world go to hell." It would take about thirty days for that to happen, in his Judgment, because that was the time limit Lenine had set for acceptance of his scheme. After the world had refused to go to the place he consigned it he came back to Paris, conversed privately with members of the peace delegation, collected what confidential docu ments he was able to get his hands on and then deliberately set himself to the task of "making ont a case," as he said, against te president. Before leaving for America he is said to have held an evening salon at which he lay in his room in pink pajamas and made a speech npon the perfection of the communis tic state and the alleged faults of the president. It is evident that Bullitt is a "crank," a parlor anarchist at heart. The ease with which he reached an understanding with Lenine it took him only two weeks to size up the entire situation in Russia makes it fair to presume that his scruples are of the same sort aa those of the soviet dictator. He probably consider anything fair which attains his ends. Knowing the manner of man be is and the point of view he takes most people will look upon his efforts to discredit the peace con ference and especially the part America played in it, as a boost, rather than a knock. Getting Ready for Trade. While the business interests of the United States are necessarily in doubt as to the scope and detail of their future foreign policy be cause of the delay of the senate in ratifying the peace treaty, the government is laying plans so that American commerce can plunge into active world competition when the war is officially at an end. With ships to trans port American goods, statistical facts to guide the salesman in foreign fields and the indus trial ability to supply the greater part of the world, the United States is in the best pos sible position, could prompt ratification of the peace treaty be obtained. The work of creating, or rather of building a foreign trade for the United States, will fall on the departments of state and commerce in conjunction with the work of the shipping board. The bureau of foreign and domestic commerce of the department of commerce will act through its special agents and investigators throughout the world in acquaintiug the pro ducers of this country with opportunities abroad, while at the same time they will carry on the work of advertising American goods to the foreign markets. In the state department the foreign trade adviser and the consular ser vice will form the liaison between the foreign consumer and the American producer. The consuls of the consular service are, of course, the active agents or the commerce department in many countries in matters in volving foreign trade opportunities. To these two services will fall the lot of reopening such countries as Russia. Turkey, the Balkans, Ger many and Austria and of "digging in" in the hitherto li'tle cultivated monarchies and re publics of Africa and Asia. Besides there will be thousands of opportunities in South Amer ica, many of whoso markets formerly patron ized German producers, and most of whom are in recent years turning with a marked degree of preference to goods from the United States. of the assembly or of the council shall requirt the agreement of all the members of the leagut represented at the meeting." In only TWO instances can the council act by a majority: First, in the unimportant mat ters of proceedure at meetings and the ap pointment of committees to investigate partic ular matters; second, under article 15 when the council fails to effect a settlement of a dispnte it shall either unanimously or by a majority yote "publish a report containing a statement of the facts of the dispute and the recommendations which are deemed just and proper thereto." Now, then, comes another paragraph in that same article 15 which removes the binding ef rect of that "majority action" in the following specific terms: "If the council fails to reach a report which Is unanimously agreed to by the members thereof, other than the representatives of one or more of the parties to the dispute, the mem bers of the league reserve to themselves the right to take such action aa they shall consider necessary for the maintenance of right and Justice." Therefore the monumental power "of the policies of the council through a majority, and so rule the world," as claimed by Senator Reed in the paragraph quoted at the start of this article, falls with a sickening squash and smears with its slime all his conclusions from tllat claim. Why mince words about the power of our one vote (always continuous) on that council. BY WILLIAM BPADY md. AUTMOU Sketches From Life BY 1KM?LK Cleanliness Sometimes Pays. I have no documentary evidence that plumbers pay royalties to English novelists and American writers of stories for the sex-emphatic magazines, but I notice that the hero or heroine always begins the day about 11:30 a. m. with a bath. The more unclean the character is morally the more par ticular he or she is to bathe ma tutinally matutinal bathroom fix tures being, I suppose, a particu larly luxurious and expensive kind. That Eort of cleanliness is ques tionable. But reasonable cleanli ness sometimes pays. Do you know, it is a fact that little boys and girls who sit down to eat without first carefully washing their hands are much more likely to have worms than are clean little folks. Even if they haven't time to sit down and eat. but just grab some thing and, run out and play while eating, the same sordid truth ap plies. Tho earth in most inhabited communities is more, or less doI luted with the eggs of human par asites. The eggs areconveved to 3e VOte (always romiuuuusj uu th month nn ,im . i npf AtRarv l mouth on dirty fingers. for an vital matter affecting r tereeu. for lu rSrhere every aiu scuuui " 1 . l " man is as powerful as 11 in avoiding a verdict in our jury system. But Senator Reed did not stop (if correctly quoted), at such flagrant effort to prejudice his hearers through misstatement or ignorance of the terms of the covenant, but he grew elo quent in the description of our pitifully weak one vote out of 82 in the assembly and he quoted four tables of statistics to show appal ling preponderance of non-white population, and so on, ad nauseum. to prove our peril in being a tiny one against 32 and against Great Britain's six votes. Half his speech was made up of this "tommy-rot." for such term inele gantly expresses that kind of argument which is not founded on truthful facts, whether such facts be expressed or suppressed, for in this instance he evades any direct mention of what a majority of the assembly could do, but neces sarily wishes his hearers to Jump themselves at the conclusion of the power oi tne majority. as otherwise his mountain of statistics would have no purpose. The suppressed matter is as follows: Look back to the first quotation I made from article 5 and you will find that the assembly's action must also be unanimous just like a jury, unless "otherwise expressly provided in this covenant." It happens that there are only four' times the assembly can have any action through a OPPOSITION TO LEAGUE FOUNDED UPON MISTAKE (W. K. Russell, formerly editor of the Inter national Economist, in Akron Times). If the following paragraph taken verbatim from the Akron Beacon-Journal's account on Sept. 8, 1919, is a correct extract from Senator Reed's address on Sept. 7, I hereby expect tc prove by such evidence that Senator Reed mads a wilful misrepresentation or a ludicrous mis take. "The assembly selects four members of ths council of nine. Let me select those four mem bers and I can control the council. It stands to reason that with the various discordant in terests animating the Big Five the minority of four by secret alliances can secure a majority vote in the council and so dictate its policies, and so rule the world." Having before him for over three months the published text of the amended league cove nant. Senator Reed should not claim exemp tion through ignorance of its contents, and the following first paragraph in article 5 of that covenant says in unmistakably clear Eng. lish as follows: "Except where otherwise expressly provid ed in the covenant, decisions at any meeting majority; first, concerning the unimportant "procedure of meetings and appointment or committees to investigate particular matters"; second, an approval of the unanimous choice of the council for secretary general can be made by a majority of the assembly (in article 6): third, when a dispute is referred to the assembly by unanimous action of the council (to whom it must first be referred) or referred to the assembly by the request of either party to the dispute, if such request is made within 14 days after the submission of the dispute to the council, then the assembly by a majority action can have a voice equal to the unanimous voice of the council, if, and 4?n't jverlook this very imoortant if. such majority of the as sembly is concurred in by those members of the league represented on the council (exclu sive of the disputants in both instances) and this means the unanimous concurrence of the council, including, of course, our member, all of which above facts makes the majority cf assembly action of no vital consequent with out our one member of council consent. After the league is in practical force, an amendment can be made by a majority of thi assembly providing it has the unanimous con currence of the council, including our own representative. " x As to the Monnpe doctrine, it is self-evident that even if it were not excepted from league jurisdiction no action upon it could be taken either in the council without our one vote, or in the assembly without the concurrence of our one vote in the council, and therefore that we would be amply protected without any change in the reference to that subject in the league covenant. Let us now pause and proceed slowly and deliberately, for I am anxious for you to grasp fully the astounding assertion 1 am now about to make, namely, the great American trait of superficial examination of published matter has been made evident through the above correla tion of facts in this article and the really won derful position of the United States (along equally with each of the. other members of the Big Five) is shown clearly by the actual fact that our one voice on the council is greater in power than if we had no voice on the council and 31 out of 32 on the assembly. Now, pause again ponder above sta'ement well, for, if it is true, all the antagonism in the senate and in the public press and among the people is founded upon a mistake which has perpetuated Itself because so oft repeated without the specific detailed proof herein given of it being such an egregious error. Under such above claim the entire fabric of the oppo sition must either vanish or be persisted in as an outrageous lie which the public will soon nail to a deserved demise. atones are conspicuously absent likewise take chances of getting a mouthful they are not purchasing. Nurses may be divided into two classes dirty nurses and clean nurses. Saireygamp. just off her 500th baby case, is a specimen of the dirty nurse- The invalid who can get well under the care of Sairey has a wonderful constitu tion. She doesh't believe in bath ing at all. in cold weather so she goes much further than I do, for I believe in bathing occasionally. She fears her patient "may take cold" from water, air. and such commodities. Hence th filth. A trained nurse's first duty is to make her patient comfortable; that implies cleanliness; her second duty Is to keep her patient com fortable. If she can master these two duties she is a thoroughly competent nurse, no matter where or how she has obtained her train ing. Tooth brushes will probably be popular ts long aa we continue taking a mixed diet, refining nat ural food, and bolting' our meals. But the tooth brush is useful in inverse ratio with age; the older you are the less good a tooth brush can do you. As soon as a .baby cutf a tooth the tooth brush should be brought into play. It is sur prising how quickly a baby gen the bang of the thing and goes to the bathroom as soon as be has had his breakfast to brush his tooth. By brushing the lone tooth industriously for a while the babv prepares the soil for the other teeth and conserves his chewing machinery. A baby with sound teeth seldom has any trouble with tonsils, adenoids- and such things. The lees soap we apply to our skin the better for the skin. The less water we apply the better for the skin. A soap and water hath once in two weeks is ample in cool weather for sedentary persons do ing clean work. A plain cool or tepid water bath twice a week is comparatively safe. An air batn night and morning cleans your conscience if you feel that way about it. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. Teething Ring Hjgiene. Is a bone teething ring objec tionable if the ring is kept clean? MRS. G. E. U. Answer If the ring is carefullv washed every time the baby takes it out of his mouth to pound the piano leg or wipe up the floor with it, the ring is not .objectionable. However, it is always unnecessary, aud often creates bad habits. Exercise and Menstruation. Is there any danger in taking too much exercise during menstru ation? B. U. Answer Too much exercise is not advisable at any time. A wo woman should not interrupt her ordinary routine, whatever ever cise she may take daily, merely because she is a woman. Many functional troubles of women arc directly due to lack of exercise an 1 to a kind of coddling inspired by Old Doctor Halfpint'3 almanac dis cussions on "female weaKncss," whatever (hat may be. Dandruff C ure. Can you tell me if there is really any cure for dandruff? M. E. A. Answer No, I can't, but I be lieve this disease might be cured if the victim could get up sufficient moral courage to go without a hat at all times. A very helpful appli cation for dandruff consists of a solution of 10 grains each of sali cylic acid and resorcin. one ounce of any toile water. Several drops of this should be rubbed into the scalp once or twice a day. If tho scalp or liajr is too dry, add about five drops of castor oil.

(Copyright, 1919, by the Western Newspaper Union.) 'A penny for your thoughts, Wil bur," spoke pretty Erna Barton, and the somber face of Wilbur Gray, evidencing a mood of pro found abstraction, brightened up magically, as it always did when this charming girl was beside him. "Am I bure of the compensation offered?" challenged the young man lightly. "There!" and Erna pressed an old battered copper coin into his band. "Now confess, sir! Not only do I reward you with the conven tional penny, but I present what may be a rare coin." "So rare and old that it in scription Is fairly undecipherable," replied Wilbur. "It seems to wear the sreen and grime of the cen turies." "I found it among a lot of relies of the olden, olden time that poor flear . grandfather cherished," ex plained Erna. "He also left some old pieces of delftware and ancient firearms." "I shall keep the corn always, Erna," said Wilbur. "I hope It will be a guardian-of good fortune. "But what about the pay?" ln aulred Erna, archly. "I bought Four thoughts what were they?" "Well. Erna," answered Wilbur, his glance softening and replete with . sentiment. "I waa thinking low dearly I loved yon wh-an 1 came home for the holiday vaca tion.", Erna's fair golden head dropped, but she drew nearer to him on the porchi seat. "And how much more I love you now," continued Wilbur, seriously. "And when I come home next sum mer I hope I can add to it all by asking you to become my wife." "I hope so," said Erna spontan eously, lifting her clear, honest eyes to meet his own, "but you must not think of that until you are sure that little Eva will not be a burden to you. All grandfather has left us is this little place, and some money is owing on that." "I hope to be able to clear up everything and more," spoke Wil bur confidently. "Send your sweet, beet wishes after me when I go back to work in the city, that I may find some- way of earning more money than I do now." "Be patient, dear," soothed Erna encouragingly. "Our ship is sure to come In come day, and it will be the more precious for the waiting." Wilbur waa employed in a bro kerage office. Opportunity came to him through this business connec tion of making money, but he had no capital to invest. About two weeks after his return to the city a close friend, Paul Warfleld, drop- pea into nis room at nis boarding honse. "I wish I had a thousand dollars. wabur - ho said. got a tip i that won Id make me a fortune in a month." Wilbur smiled incredulously. He had always kept away from tips and speculative propositions gen erally, and, besides, he realized that Warfleld was a good deal of a dreamer. "Don't laugh at me, Wilbur," said Paul. "This is no wild fantasy, but a sure thing." "Some stock on the boom, eh?" "Nothing of the sort. It's a sure prospect, with a sound, substantial basis. It's land land that never decays, never burns up, never wears out. Wall street can't play with it." "Land with a gold mine on It, I suppose?" intimated Wilbur quiz zically. "No, Wilbur, it's an 8-acre strip, and last week on the forty a pros pector made a strike. He sealed the well, and is trying to keep his discovery quiet until he can inter est some capitalist to buy up all the other land in the vicinity. The very choicest is the piece I have a chance to bay. My old aunt is willing to Invest half of the money required. Couldn't you raise the other five hundred in some way, Wilbur?" - "Oh, yes, sure; certainly!" de rided Wilbur. "See." and he emp tied his pocket of the few coins it held. "I might buy a hundredth part of an acre." and Just then one of the coins slipped through hie careless fJrlgers and rolled against Paul's foot. The latter picked it up to restore It to its owner. Then wiih a pro found stare and a voluble "Hello!" Where did you ever get that?" He held clo-,e to the light the copper penny Erna 3arton had given to Wilbur. He rubbed It. took out a magnifying glass and added: "Say, did you know that you have a treasure V "What do you mean?" question ed Wilbur. "Why. that this is a Cirencester penny of the period of King Ste phen, probably one of the rarest coins in the world, centuries old Will you let me take it to an old collector I know? in be back in an hour." The hour waa Just up when Paul, excited and breathless, returned. "One f the only two known!" he fairly shouted. "The other is in the British museum. I have an of fer of six hundred dollars." "Take it!" cried Wilbur Impuls ively, "and use five hundred dol lars of It for your wonderful spec ulation." y Which turned out just aa Paul had predicted. There waa a later division of twenty thousand dol lars' profits, and Wilbur Gray went back to bis native village to make Erna Barton the happiest girl In the world. Q.
