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',

Is Leprosy Curable?
I Since the dawn of history this
f dreadful disease lias -in kr A ii.

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-

pects of thrift and economy, we

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

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

And a man expects a woman to

to tell a man of her troubles, and
ho flees from her as though she was

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

Girl Lacks Faith; v.
Suitor Loses Ardor
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

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?
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

possibly can. You had better consult
a specialist in regard to having your

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
"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:

''Now, Uncle Wiggily, 8,nd boys
and girls, we'll have some fun! 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,
"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
"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
"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
