" . t CordeU Hull. f There seems to be more general re- gret throughout the country over the defeat of Representative Cordell Hurl, I of the Fourth congressional district, . than over anvthine else that hap pened to the Demoi rats of Tennessee I tn the recent election. I The consensus of opinion is that the defeat of Representative Hull 1 a national calamity. During his long ! years of service in the houso he has devoted himself almost exclusively I to the study of tax matters. AlmoHt i everyone in congress, regardless of f politics, agrees that Judge Hull is tho Deal inrornieu meniuer in t-iwiei house on taxation. He is the au thor of the Income tax law, ami had a part in drafting every tax measure f of consequence that has been passed (In recent years. Without exception when tax matters of importance are ? pending before committees, he Is ln f vited to appear fcnd explain the dlf- ferent provisions and demonstrate the application of the proposed meas I urea. J His familiarity with tax matters is' not limited to the Vhlted States. He its familiar with the taxing systems of all the European qountrieg. He is regarded as an authority on systems I of taxation employed in England, France, Germany and other coun 1 tries. I It was perhaps natural that Judge I Hull should have fallen a victim to the Republican landslide. The fact I that he has devoted practically all of his time to a subject so little under stood by the average person, may be regarded as one of the contributing factors in his defeat. , Had be been more of an orator than a student, more of an actor than a statesman, perhaps he would have retained his . I seat, in which event it would , not have made eo much difference if he had been defeated. Canal Tolls. The rumor persists that Senator Harding is going to visit the Panama canal for the purpose of Justifying the preconceived opinion "that the commerce of the United States shall not suffer much longer from what he regards as an unfair exaction." The deduction gathered from what Senator Harding said is that he will propose to free American ships from Panama canal tolls. The country will not approve- this movement on his part. The Hay Pauncefote treaty with reference to the Nicaruxuan canal made the ships of all nations subject to the same toll. The selection of the Panama rather than the Nicaraguan route left room for debate on this provision, but if this country desires to carry but tlie sense of a treaty made in f good faith regarding the Nlcarnguan route, it will not take advantage of I the language of the treaty, which in , f no way affects the spirit of the un- i derstanding. The Democratic platform in 1912 making a bid for votes carried a plank pledging the Democratic party to permit the passage of American ships through the canal without pay ment of tolls. The Democratic party had a majority in both branches of congress at that time, but the prop osition was so obviously unfair, not only to England, with whom wo had a treaty on the subject, but to the American people who were being taxed for the cost of tho canal, that the platform declaiatlon was never carried out. The cost of construction of the f canal to the United States, exclusive of the fortifications costing J3o,000,- 000, was approximately $400.00n,ouu. The receipts from the tolls have av eraged approximately $6,300,00(1 a year. The greater part of this rev enue comes from American ships. There Is no reason whv they should J not pay their wav. Already there is tmuch complaint on net mint of the in J come, corporation and other federal ! taxes extracted from the pockets of the American people. If the greater I part of this $6,300,000 of revenue de prived from the shipping that passe? i" through the canal is to he alio','.: lied, lit means that additional tiiirdei wil! ;be placed upon an already oveit.ur j dened public. t Not only is it wrong In princip'" ffor the government to ma'.titaii, the. canal at an enormous exp-r.- for Cthe benefit of and without to the shipping interests, but it is a r clear violation of a tre.it v. am' i'iev fitably would lead to interna! una', t complications. Is Leprosy Curable? I Since the dawn of history this f dreadful disease lias -in kr A ii. 1 feared and found in. i rable by any medical skill. U has been the scourge I of the race. It was found abke on the banks of the Ganges, Euphrates, , Yang-Tse-KUns, Jordan, Thames. fNile and Mississippi. When once it bad fastened itse'.f upon its victim (there was no refuge hut the gr.r.o. . Commencing at first with a slight t whitening of the skin, a faint numb ?eas of the flesh, its match was slow but sure. Tho victim was horribly i disfigured and the stench was a bur-den-cven to the victim. Its cause Is unknown, though it Is surmised that an excessive fish diet hud much to do with it. In England it was once as common as it is In Egypt to this day. Variety in diet has caused it to practically disappear in. Europe, with the exception o' Sweden and parts of Russia. Formerly the cry of "Unclean! ' Unclean!" was echoed over the length ami breadth of that continent. Now it is unheard. At last it is believed that a cure l.i. s been found for this universal scourge. It is stated that Dr. A. L. Dean, professor of chemistry and president of the University of Ha waii, and Dr. J. T. McDonald, In ci.irge of the Kalihi leper hospital, by the use of chaulmoogra oil, have worked apparent miracles. So far 78 patients have been paroled since 1918 as cured, and there has been no re currence of the dread disease, Chaul moogra oil, It appears, will not only check leprosy but will completely de stroy the lepra bacilli. If so medi cine has stored one of the most com plete triumphs of its lone anil won derful career. Many publications are deservedly rejoicing over this conquest of one of the worst scourges that luis ever cursed mankind They err, however, in assigning the discovery to these noted Americans. Chnulmoogra oil was discovered and first used In the leper hospitals in India by British physicians. It was through their in strumentality that Messrs. Dean and McDonald took it up and brought hope and life to the hopeless and all but lifeless. It is a remedy that takes patience and perseverance in administering. As the disease mav exist for years without suspicion of anyone but the afflicted, so time is a great factor in its cure. It is advisable to speak of a cure, for though the American specialists do not use the word in Hawaii, or the British in Bengal. where it is at Its worst, yet so far there has never been a relapse. An other great step has been taken in the upward march of the race. ' Thrift for Children. The following resolution was adopted at a meeting of the state school superintendents (n Washlng- ' ton: . I ' ."Instruction In the practical as pects of thrift and economy, we think, is the only means of stem ming the tide of waste and extrava gance." This Is a step In tho right direc tion. As the twig is bent the tree's Inclined. If we can inculcate the principle of thrift into the minds! and- hearts of boys and girls a repe tition of the present era of folly and extravagance will be impossible. As a nation we are the most spendthrift people on earth, and this applies to all sections, for the old New Eng land thrift has vanished and the en tire naMon is -chasing after an elu sive phantom: the bubble of lavish display. f We can not expect the rising gen eration to be any better, unless we set higher ideals before ' them. To do ,so Is a duty. To neglect this duty is a crime. We need more of the rugged Spartan simplicity in our national life If we are going to en dure as a worth-while nation. Bur roughs, the naturalist, laments that the world is burning up its resources with a lavish hand. This is in the spirit of our times that cries "What care we? It will outlast our day." Our forests are vanishing; our wild game will soon be gone; our coal mines depleted and our min eral and oil deposits but a name. By an means teach children ' thrift and learn' the thrift of conservation at the same time. "Why does the price of rice remain unreasonably high?" demands the Birmingham News. A natural query from a newspaper man; also why the continued high cost of half-soling shoes, and blocking last year's hats? "Considering I'ndrrwood w Ith re gard to availability In 19.'4," says a headline. , Apparently the Demo cratic party is going to make a fight to retain its 127 electoral votes .and the fragments of the broken South. The storm encountered by Senator Harding at Point Isabel, with Its at tendant annoyance, was good train ing for the storm due to brea,k around him In Maich. "Automobile collides with street car." Headline. Perhaps the street car was disguised to resemble a pe destrian.

By DOROTHY DIX. The World's Highest Paid Woman Writer. (Copyright, 1920, by The Wheeier Syndicate. Inc.) Isn't it funny what queer Ideas men have about women? Kor Instance, it never occurs to a man tnat it makes any difference how he looks.- He Is strong for the beauty stuff himself, and he passes up with scorn every woman who can't qualify in the living picture class. When he takes a girl out, she has to be a good looker, and dolled up in the latest fashion, and at a party nothing short of a Catling gun could induce him to ask a (Mt, bald-headed, freckled-face lady, verging on old maidenhood, to dance with him. But the first fact that he possesses a figure built along the architectural lines of a bay window, and a face homely enough to stop a clock, does not prevent a man from picking the peaihiest peach in the .baskqt and blithely making her his own if be can. And after the couple are mar ried it is tho husband who demandK that his wife' shall always 'be spiel and span, while he arrogates to him self the right to "lump Into sloven -ness if he is more comfortable In old clothes than new. Curious, isn't it, that men think that women have a loss keen aesthe tic sense than they have, and that women care less for appearances, and are less easily disillusioned? Cjueer. too, isn't it, the masculine theory that a woman never wants to talk about herself, and the. things she is interested in, or to tell her l opes, and plans, and ambitions, and disappointments to a sympathetic male ear'.' All sensible women rend up on subjects in which their husbands, and brothers, and sweethearts are interested so that they may be able to talk intelligently to them, but did you ever hear of a man reading up on the fashions, of baby culture, or studying the cookbook so that he coul.

And a man expects a woman to consider It a privilege to listen tar his tnle of woe. and to hind up- wun her sympathy the wounds the world has dealt him. but let a woman try to tell a man of her troubles, and ho flees from her as though she was a leper. Odd. too, Isn't It. that a man never realizes that a woman finds It Just as hewrt-wrenching a thing to give un a career in which she is maklnr a-success, ns he would? It doesn't occur to htm thnt the sound of ap- iitmise Is sweet to a woman s ears. that she gets an Insufferable thrill of enjoyment out of the exercise of her talents, that she likes the money that she earns.

Professor in tha University of Kan sas and an Authority on Child Training. The church leaders of many cities In the state of Oklahoma are unit ing upon a new plan of standardiza tion of their effort to safeguard their peculiar Interests in the wel fare of children. The general Idea Is this: To act with other existent agencies and in accordance with a concrete program. And In order to make the work elastic I have made out for general distribution among the church and Sunday school lead ers there the following list of speci fications: . Plan for an increased attendance and enrollment at the Sunday schools and young people's societies. Provide ways whereby the Sunday school may be extended to meet tne children's Interests in plaf, games and athletics. Seek to'cof'-ordinate the work of the lyoungi people's societies in all local churches and to organize them into a social union. ; Arrange for social atfairs within the churches including clubs, gym-, nasiums and motion pictures such, as shall tend to lure adolescents away from the coarser amusements. Attempt to centralize under one genenal superintendent or manage ment the work of all the local Sun day schools, especially as to course of study and supply of teachers. Work out a uniform and definite program to be used by all the minis ters and church leaders in combat ing local agencies which tend to de moralize th young. Trovide for an annual union teacher-training Institute and for child study classes In the separate church bodies, together .with service pro jects for the individual classes. Organize d vacation Bible school for all children and undertake me thodical advertising and propaganda in behalf of that and all the other larger and similar projects. Make out a general course of study for Sunday schools, to cover ade quately the necessary instruction In relation to alcohol, narcotics and ex cessive use of sweetmeats. Carry on Incidentally researches and Investigations as to new meas ures . which might be Incorporated within the unified program as out lined above, In the foregoing1 we have a brief step toward a genuine league of Sun day schools. If such a procedure can be carried to Its proper conclu sion there should result a marked reduction in the waste effort and' the chaotic spirit under which the child fostering agencies of the church are today everywhere working. I hope that the leaders throughout tha coun try will at least watch Oklahoma In his significant attempt ap4 try 'to gain some benefit from avery pro gressive step there taken. a little house, and ministering to her comfort and pleasure. But a man has no hesitation in HatvtinHtn- i. Voman,and he thinks she should be Jolly glad ' to do it. u a woman made her husband give up his business when he mar ried her so that he would have more time to spend with her, or if she made him leave the stage because she didn't like to see him in love scenes with other women, or If fehe forced him to give up writing or painting so that he could wheel the perambulator, he would hate HJr for the way she had blighted his life, but when be hands out this kind of treat ment to his wife ho thinks she should be doing flip flops of grati tude before him. , Queer how men think that women enjoy being dependent! A male worm wouldt resent not having a leaf of its own to gnaw on. No matter how good and kind and generous a father, or a wife a man had, he would loathe having to go to him or Iter and usk for clothes money and .street cur .fare. And if he had a backbone the Hue and strength of a silk thread he would despise him self for being such a parnsjte. But men think that women have no shame In being dependent, and that they enjoy the process of wheedling and cajoling a few nick els out of the pockets of their lords and masters. Odd, too. Isn't It, that a man never speaks of his employer having "giv en him" the money for which he has toiled eight hours a day! Nor is he filled with any sense of grati tude toward his boss as he receives his pay envelope. Hut he speaks of "supporting" the wife who works 14 hours a day. washing, and cooking, and sbjwIiik for him and his children, and he feels that she should be sloshing over with thanks to him, ami appreciation of his goodness in giving; her Her board and clothes in return for her labor. Strange also, most strange, men's child-like faith in the olamantine quality of woman's love and con stoncy. There Is no id, a that men are committed to more firmly than that once a woman loves a man she will love him on -1lll the end of time, no matter how he may treat her. Likewise, he is convinced that a woman's one wild desire is for do mesticity, and that she can not pos sibly get enough of it. He knows that there are times when a man yearns to slip the yfkf and Jump the fence into Krcen field and new pastures, but 11 never crosses his mind that his wife has the same mad magenta moments, as the futurists would say He knows that it Is the easiest tiling on eartli for a wife to kill her husband's love, and the hardest lob for her to keep herself through the years a steady flnme of enchant ment, to him, but it does not even cross his mind that a woman's, love Is even a more fragile thing than a man's, and that ho can only keep ii alive by cherishing it, and .coddling it with never-ending skill and ten derness. Queerest of all, Isn't it, that mee have never found out that human na ture is all of the same piece, and that as they think and feel, women also think and feel! only more so, . 0 - 1 LIKE PAYIN'OVTT ) V!

Dear Mrs. Thompson Eigh. years ago I was engaged to a man, but found out that he cared for another girl. I gave hirri up .to her, but it took me three or four years to get over the affair and left me without faith in men. I thought every man I met was capable of trifling with my affections, just as the first had done. A year ago I met a man whom I liked, but I was afraid to trust him, and so gave him no encouragement. I think he cared for me then, but he has given up trying to gain my friendship. Now I know that I care a great deal for him. What can I do? ' THANK YOU. It Is unfortunate that you have per- mltted yourself to lose faith In men because of your unhappy love affair. If your former fiance did not really care for you, it was better that you learned the truth before it was too late. But In any case, it was a great mistake to judge all men by one. You had only to look about you to see that there are many men who would not deliberately trifle with a woman's love. For you to make an obvious effort to gain the second man's attention would not be In good taBte and might prove embar rassing. It may be that he has lost all Interest in you. Or he -may have been too much hurt by your apparent indifference to risk rebuff. AH that you can do Is to be pleased, and friendly when chance throws you together, and to try In that, way to overcome the im pression you have made. But whether he returns to you or not. let this ex perience teach you to Judge each per son by his own merits not by the shortcomings of another. And try to banish doubts and distrust from your mind. Kemember that most persons mean well and have much more of good than evil in their makeup. Dear Mrs. Thompson I am a a'l 19 years old, and am very unhappy, I dress well but modestly. I have no boy friends. All the young men seem to prefer girls who dress in a conspicuous manner. I am a little shy and can not seem to overcome this. Will you please advise me? FRIENDLESS. No desirable young man would avoid you because your dress is modest and sensible. Are you careful, too, to see that it is suitable and becoming? That is the important thing in dress. Per haps you misjudge the other girls. They must have charm and personality if they make friends easily, and are able to continue the friendships. Instead of criticizing them or their methods try to determine why it Is that you do not attract people. Try to overcome your shyness and self-consciousness by thinking about others rather than about the impression you are making.. Be kind and considerate, be cheerrul and ready to please, and you will have friends. And don't expect others to make all the efforts toward friendship. Dear Mrs. Thompson I am a girl 18 years old, and care a great deal for two young men. They both say they are in love with me. How can I make up my mind which one I like best and which one cares most for me? V. When you are realy in love you will not have to usk anyone how to make sure what man you like best. You will konw. beyond any doubt. And a.s to which man cares more for you that Is a matter which you should be able to determine by their actions. You say that each has expressed his love for you, but you do not say that either has asked you to become engaged to him. When a man truly cares for a girl and wishes to make her his wife, HOROSCOPE SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1920. (Copyright, 1920, by the McClure News paper Syndicate.) Mercury rules this day with frie-idly power, according to astrology. .Saturn is In malefic aspect in Ihe evening. All tlie signs seem to emphasize the continued influence of propaganda. The printed word will have- great sway. Newspapers and periodicals come un der the best direction of the stars. Editors will enjoy unusual benefits. Ad vertising Is to become more and more a medium of modern progress and It is to develop along novel lines, the seers predict. SHturn' continues in menacing sspect and the outlook for mines and mining is not so good lis ii, should he. The prevalence of strikes that affect the nect ssaiies of life is prognosi letted. There is n sicn that is read as pre saging the vanishing of old men and old ldas but there may he a period of seeming r.-aetlonary tendencies. The seers declare that real progress In recognition of universal brotherhood will be made In the new year. Women will do well tn make no Im portant mnv s today. They may seem to lose ground politically for a brief time, but they are to gaiii great power later. While Saturn frowns dark and lonely places should be avoided. Thieves prosper during this configuration. The affairs of hospitals and ptib'le Institutions may bo Investigated at this time. Theatrical affairs will be fulrly pros perous at this time, hut manv chanjes in management are prognosticated.

That Is usually the certain and .final test .of his affection. You are very young to be so concerned about the state of your feelings. Evidently you do not care enough for either of these men just now to justify an engagement. Wait a while. You may find later that nei ther of them Is the man you can care for deeply enough to marry. , Dear Mrs. Thompson I am a young woman 20 years of age, 5 feet 2 inches tall, and weigh 104 pounds. How muoh should I weigh? I eat plenty of meat at least twice dally. Please suggest to me tome way in which I can gain rap Idly. Also suggest some way to straighten my legs. I have been bow legged ever since I was small. Can braces be used yet or am I too old? EDITH. You should weigh 119 pounds. To gain flesh take plenty of olive oil, eat eggs, butter, cereals and fatty broths, potatoes, pens, beans, corn, carrots, un derdone beei roast and steak, and drink plenty of nrnk, cream and cocoa. Avoid food that -will not digest easily and be careful to masticate' thoroughly every thing you eat. Give up pickles, vine gar and all acids. Exercise freely in the open air and take plenty of sleep. Don't fret or worry, as this will keep one thin more than anything else. Cul tivate an easy-going disposition if you possibly can. You had better consult a specialist in regard to having your legs straightened. Dear Mrs. Thompson I am a wld ower, 36 years old. I lost my wife three months ago. I have five children and among them is a dear baby 15 months old. . I have broken up housekeeping scattered my children around with my sisters and brothers. I get so lone some at times to see my sweet baby I can hardly live. I would like every much for you to tell me how I can be better contented. All my children are in other towns, but one boy, and I have him with me. I go to see my baby every two weeks and when I start to leave it almost kills me. I know that all my children have flood homes, but I am not satisfied. I have tried to be contented as hard as any man ever did, but I just can't. Please advice me what Is belt for me to do. A WEARIED FATHER. It takes time to adjust oneself to a change like yours. Time will work out your problem and show you a way. It is too soon now to think of marrying again, nmlyit would be unwise for you to hasten such a step. Simply be pa tient and trust that when the right time conies and your family will be reunited.

(Copyright, 1920, by MoClure News paper Syndicate.) BY HOWARD R. GARIS. One day, Just as Uncle Wlgteily Longears, the bunny rabbit gentle man, was getting ready to leave his hollow stump bungalow, .to go in search of an adventure, there came a-knock at the door. "I'll go!" offered Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy. The Inuskrat lady housekeeper was just, clearing away the breakfast dishes; VDear me! I hop, that isn't the Fuzy Fox or the Wdoxle Wolf com ing to bring me an adventure, in stead of letting me go off and look for it myself," thought Uncle Wig gily. But he need not have worried, for when Nurse Jane opened the door, there ' was Johnnie Bushytail, the little squirrel boy, smiling and bow ing with his bundle of books tied in a piece of wild grape vine slung over his shoulder. .?' "Oh, Uncle Wlggily!' chattered Johnnie as soon as he saw the rabbit gentleman. "Will you come to our house this afternoon?" "Why yes, Johnnie, I can call," said Uncle Wiggily, slowly. "But what Is the matter? Has anything happened?" he asked, for the squir rel boy seemed much excited. "My cousin, Teddy Scooter, has come to visit me," chattered John nie, and my mother says 1 may have a little nut party for him this after noon. Teddy Scooter wants to see you,' so I told him I'd ask you to come." ' "Oh, I'll be there!" promised Uncle, Wiggily, with a jolly twinkle of his pink nose. For the bunny rabbit gentleman liked nothing bet ter than ti get out among the ani mal boys and girls. "Well, I'll run along to school now," said Johnnie. "But we'll ex pect you this afternoon, Uncle Wig gily." . The bunny rabbit gentleman said he would surely be there, and then he combed his whiskers most care fully and went to the six and seven cent store to get Nurse Jane a new gold-plated sink brush. When afternoon came, and Uncle Wriggily knew it was about time for the lady mouse teacher to let the animal children out of the hollow stump school, the bunny gentleman hopped over the fields and through the woods until he came to the house where Johnnie and Billie Bushytail lived. It was a laige, new house In a big hollow tree, and it had up stairs, downstairs and an attic to it. Keally quite a stylish house for squirrels, you might say. "Oh, we're so glad you're here, Uncle Wiggily!" chattered Billie, the other Bushytail squirrel chap. "Come in and meet our cousin, Teddy Scooter: you know all the rest of the company." "Yes. I thinlc I do," said Uncle Wiggily, as he saw Kammie and Su sie Uittletail, the rabbits; Jackie and Peetie Bow Wow, the dogs; Toodle and Noodle Flat Tail, the beavers, Nannie andv Nillle Wagtail, the goats, and Dottle and Willie Fluff tail, the lambs. , 1 "This is Teddy Scooter," said Johnnie Bushytail, bringing up an other squirrel boy and introducing him to Uncle Wiggily. The bunny gentleman said he was glad to meet Teddy and he was just going to ask why he had such a funny name as "Scooter" when Johnnie chattered: I News of Msmphlt fnp' -p j j Jews of Memphis 10 Ye.r.

My mother has gone out and left the whole house to us. We can do as we please, she said. And she has left us a lot of nut cake and other good things to eat. - So we'll first play some games and then we'll have a little party." - . 1 "It's lots of fun here, I like it!" said Teddy Scooter to Uncle Wig gily. "I live in another part of the woods, and I don't get here but once in two years." ( "We're glad to see you," said Uncle Wiggily, and he wondered why Teddy Scooter looked different from the Bushytail squirrel brothers. Mr. Longears was once more going to ask why Teddy was called "Scoot er," when Johnnie shouted: "All ready for a game of tag!" Of course, Uncle Wiggily Joined in this, and he and the animal boys and girls were having lots of fun, when, alt of a sudden, Lulu Wlbblewobble, the duck girl, looking from a win dow, called: "Oh, here's the Fuzzy Fox and the Woozie Wolf outside. They're trying to get in!'' 9 At the same time there was a banging and pounding on the front door, and Johnnie, the squirrel, cried: "Come on, Uncle Wiggily and ev erybody! We'll go up to the top floor up in the attic and lock all the doors after us! That's what mother told me to do if anyone tried to. get In. Come on, we'll go up to the attic!" Up the stairs rushed al the ani mal children, Uncle Wigfily going last to protect them in case the Fox and Wolf should break in the front doors. But the bad animals could not do this, and soon the bunny rab bit gentleman and all the others . were safe in the top story. But the Fox and Wolf sat down outside and howled: , "We'll wait here until you get so hungry you'll have to come out, and then we'll get you!" "Oh, If somebody could only get out of the backattic window and go for I'erclval, tnfc Policeman Dog, to come and arrest the Fox and Wolf!" cried Susie Littletail. i "No one can get down from Tiero out of the window," said her brother, Sammie. "Yea, I can!" chattered Teddy Scooter, the cousin of Johnnie and Billie. "I'm a flying squirrel, That's why I'm called Scooter. I scoot very .fast. " "I can not exactly fly, as the birds do, It is true. Btit I have wide pieces of fur between-my paws, and I can glide down from a high po,nt, much better than anyone can Jump. I can safely glide out of the back attic window and get help," spoke Teddy Scooter. "Then do it!" begged Uncle Wig gily. So, while the Fox and Wolf waited outside, keeping the animal boys and girls and Uncle Wiggily prisoners in the attic, Teddy Scooter flew down out of the back window as easily as pie. Away he ran to get Policeman Dog iTercIval, who soon drove- away the bad Fox and Wolf, "Hurray for Teddy Scooter, the Flying Squirrel!" cried the boys andJ girls, and Uncle Wiggily let! the cheering, for Teddy had saved them all. Then the party went merrily on, and if the ice cream doesn't boil over when it is trying to Jump across the gas stove with the bean bag, I'll tell you next about Uncle Wiggily and Henny Pop.
