THE CL0VI3 NEWS, THURSDAY, MARCH 2S, 1920.
The Clovis News Official Paper of Curry County. EDWARD L. MANSON Editor and Publisher Entered at the postof flee at Clovii, New Mexico, at second class matter uder the act of March 3, 1879. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION One Year .' 1 $1.60 Six Months .76 NOTHING THE MATTER WITH OUR MONEY That a poor excuse is equivalent to no excuse at all is the experience of (unfortunate individuals who for one reason or another failed to make their income tax returns within the time! increase cost of living. This is wrong, partmcnt. It is hoped that no Clovis people are guilty of having overlook ed their duty along this line. In the eld colonial statute, books of New Jersey may be found a law which provides that "nil women of whatever aire, profession or rank, whether maids or widows, who shall, after this net, impose or betray into matrimony any of his majesty's sub jects, by virtue of scents, cosmetict, washes, paints, artificial teeth, false hair or hih heeled shots, shall incur the penalty now in force against wichcraft and like misdemeanors. Ft. Sumner Leader. Quite a bit of discussion is being indulged in as to whether Clovis should adopt the several bond issues to be voted on the 6th of April. The News does not see how voters can consistently vote against at least two of these issues the one to provide for more water and light meters and the one for street crossings. These issues are so small they would affect taxes very little. More water and light meters would save the city much money and pay for themselves in a short time either in increased revenue or saving in power at the plant. The money for street crossings is badly needed and a growing city like Clo vis will not procure these funds other than with a bond issue. We need more sidewalks, in fact we need miles of sidewalks and the News does not believe the progressive citizens of the town will fail to provide for this improvement. "There is nothing the matter with the American dollar," says the secre tary of the U. S. treasury in a letter to a correspondent. "It's intrinsic value is unchanged, since our cur rency in the main rests fundamental ly on gold which, with few exceptions is the standard value the world over." There is a significant truth in this statement, which it is well to impress upon the mind of the public. Too frequently the American dollar is re ferred to as the "60 cent dollnr," thereby placing upon the standard coin the blame for high prices and the limit se tby the Internal Revenue De- There is nothing the matter with the dollar, and it is worth just as much now as it ever was, even though it will only buy half as much. The unit of value is there, and the only fault to bo found with the Amerienn dollar is that it is too difficult to get enough of them ito purchnse the things we think we need. If there is any doubt us to the intrinsic worth of the dollar, just place it in comparison with the pound, sterling franc, the mark or the standard unit of any nation. The trouble is not with the dollar, but with the people who handle them. The truth is unpleasant, but any stu dent of economic conditions must be forced to the conclusion that the peo ple themselves arc largely to blame for the prevailing high prices. Peo ple have moved their standard of liv ing up to the levels where things, which before the war, were regarded as luxuries, are now deemed neces APOLITICAL X NNOUNCEMENTS FOR SHER.'F I hereby announce my candidacy for re-election to the office of Sheriff of Curry County, subject to the will of the Democratic party.

DON'T BLAME THE CHILD Don't scold your children for lack of control over the kidney secretions, It is not always the children's fault in many cases it means weak kidneys and can be readily righted. Read this Cloviu mother's advice. Mrs. O. II. Hullinger, 908 N. Pile St., Clovis, suys: "A few years ago, one of my children was troubled with weak kidneys. The child had little or no control over the action of the kidneys, especially at night. This trouble made my housework hard and burdensome. One box of Doan's Kidney Pills completely and perma nently cured her of the rtouble. 7 can coiihch ntioiisly ndvise mothers having children troubled in this way to give them Doan's Kidney Pills."
