"Most of us have a certain heaviness of heart we can't shake off," I replied. "I don't know ho wother people are. I've .often wondered," she said. "I hope everyone isn't like me. Ever since I was a little girl I have had a dread of something. I can't tell what it is. Maybe I'm what they call a moral coward. Perhaps I can't lace life. But really I never enjoy anything. No matter how happy I ought to be—no matter what's going on, a party, or new clothes or—or spring. I have a heavy heart. I know I am abnormal for some reason or other!" Rare or Common? I had my doubts about that and said so. Is she really abnormal, this unhappy young person who cannot seem to find unadulterated joy in anything she does? On the contrary, if the truth were known, I believe she is more common than uncommon. I believe there are thousands of adults and children who cannot shake off this feeling of dread, or heaviness, no matter what happens. Psychologists tell us that it is a hangover from those eons when man lived in constant terror of his life. Perhaps. But do all wild animals live with dread in their hearts? Aren't the forest birds happy even when they sing, ' Is there always the shadow of the imaginary hawk or " eagle over their their lives? Shocks of Childhood I cannot think so. Weariness and sudden alarm cannot be classed with this utter terror of living.* They are different things altogether. Again it may be caused by extreme ego, where introspection is daily habit and the world rotates around self. Us- 1 ually the introvert; is not happy. The ' sensitive soul can never forget himself and ever imagines trouble—he really . jumps ahead to seize it and bring it ' to his heart But I cannot believe this is the answer either. I believe it lies outside of either personality or heredity. I believe 't is the result of a succession of shocks in early childhood. It is fear in its most errible form. Books tell us that we are born with certain indescribable fears including that of death. Don't Frighten Children It proves no point particularly concerning these terror-ridden people. It is hardly conceivable that some would have it in such an exaggerated sense while others never know what i' means at all. A little child frightened of his father may develop a perpetual terror, oi too frequently frightened by thing; he doesn't understand and forced tt face them. I thing it is more likely to be something he has to live with than the occasional fright of a storm or an animal or the dark. Deep impressions are caused by repetition. j This is why I think it important ! that early childhood be happy. Happy, simple, quiet, normal, uncomplicated I and free of excitement. We never ' know what Frankenstein is being formed in embryo in small hearts t' rise and haunt them later. The capacity for happiness in later life depends on a contented childhood Surface Work Is Started on No. 2 Highway Dept. Pulverizing Bad Asphalt and Tamping It Down EL DORADO, Ark. — Resurfaceing operations on Highway No. 2 between El Dorado and Texarkana have been started by state engineers and the entire road is expected to be in excellent condition within six weeks, according to Frank H. Burnside, district engineer of Hope. -The asphalt-topped highway has been in bad condition for more than a year and heavy traffic and lack. of maintenance have developed huge holes in the surface of the important southwest Arkansas highway. The asphalt surface is being scari-i fied and shoulders .rebuilt whereever necessary. Work -was started wes started v/est fro the Union-Columbia county line where the highway joins (he concrete paving'18 miles west of! El Dorado. The workers will move on to Buckner, while another crew will begin work at Lewisville and move east some time next week. A large tractor, a grader and a scarifier are pulverizing the asphalt which will be bound back into a hard surface by traffic. Mr. Burnside stated that after the finely-crushed asphalt is tamped back into shape, the surface will be as good or be'tter than than a good gravel highway. He said no more asphalt will be laid on the highway at present. How Milton Eyesi One Eye Begat. Failing at 33—He Wai Blind at Age of 46 BV DR. MORRIS Editor, Journal of the American leal Association, Arid of HyfeU, the Health Magazine The great poet, Milton, 'writer of "Paradise Lost," was blind during much of his lifetime This blindness is, no doubt .associated largely with the nature of his writings and with his philosophy of life There have been mnny considerations of the char acter of his blindness, and this moVed Dr. William K. Wilmer of the great ophthalmologic institue which bears his name to make an analysis of published writings concerning reasons for the loss of Milton's sight The father of John Milton died at 34 years of age, and read without glasses all his life. His mother ''died it '65, and it was reported thai ,she had wonk eyes and uses spectacles af- or she was 30 years old. Jn his early, youth the boy suffered from digestive disturbances and later In life from gout. His eyes were naturally weak and 10 suffered from headaches.- Frojin lis twelfth year on he abused his eyesight, reading until midnight with he type of artificial light that was ivailable in. the beginning of the 17th 'entury. This overuse of his eyes con- inued as long as Milton could sec manuscript. The poet was bom in 1608. About 641, when he was 33 years of age, he >egan to have trouble with his left ye. The sight grew steadily worse nd 10 years later that eye was cn- irely blind. A few years after the nset of the disease in the left eye, lie right eye became affected, and by 654 that eye admitted only a tiny peck of -light. In available letters it appears that here was use of the eyes, but gradual ailure of vision.

U. here Sunday night. ore the eyes, occasional flashes of ght and similar dissurbances. There have been many suggestions s to the reasons for Milton's loss of ight. It is not likely that it was due > detachment of the retina, because lat comes on suddenly, and is, as )r. Wilmer says, accompanied by a eeling that a black curtain has sud- enly dropped before -the eye. Occa- ionally there are fireworks, such as ,ashes of vivid light and floating col- red disks before the eye, and Milton makes no record of such symptoms ay and night. Except for his failing vision, indi- estion an dgout, Milton seems to ave had good general health; It is ossible that he suffered with a ten-" ency to nearsightedness. Both his ather and mother were nearsighted. Weakness of his eyes may have beet) ssociated with inflammation' of U}e lens and with eyestrain from overuse;, perhaps also with uncorrectcd errors of vision. It seems hardly likely that he suffered from cataract, because it does not accord with the general history of his case and there is no record that any of his friends observed a grayness of the pupils of his eyes. Dr. Wilmer is inclined to believe that Milton sufered with nearsightedness complicated by glaucoma. Glaucoma is the cause of one per cent of disturbances of the eyes. It occurs at all ages, increasing with every decade of life after 30. In this condition, there is a tendency to increased pressure within the eye due to interference with the mechanism of drainage, of fluid from the eye. The fact that Milton had.gout would seem to predispose toward glaucoma, and ce^ain- ly the overuse of his eyes might have been a factor.

M'KEE, Scottsman who succeeded "Jimmy" V s Walker as mayor of New York when it got tired of a Iclown and wanted a real man, has quit politics for a banking [job. McKee's parting shot at politics is that it is "disgust- ling." The people 6f the City of New York -rrhad great faith in McKce. Inspired by a newspaper campaign hundreds of thousands of voters wrote his name in on the ballot. But he didn't win. O'Brien, a judge, had the support of Tammany Hall— and today O'Brien Is mayor. McKec's verdict on politics will be echoed by millions of fellow Americans. But he stands head and shoulders above them—he speaks from experience, not theory. There is nothing alarming in this verdict from a man who has given as many years of his life to public 1 service as McKec has. What is alarming is the number of Americans who echo McKcc, yet are too proud to run for office, and too lazy to vote for or against those who i» ffhnnitti1fflitrrttlt^MifiWiW» . , " f ' ?. ^«* Sttr ot Mop* found*!

Comptroller Says New Law Hasn't Changed Responsibility LITTLE ROCK—Declaring that efforts to discredit art act intended to promote honesty and economy "will not register with the taxpayers," State £Scmptroller Griffin Smith is••Hed a statement Thursday defending the 1933 pre-audit law against criticism of State Auditor J. Oscar Humphrey, who told ne w spaper men that forgeries discovered- after- a book of 25 voucher-warrants had been stolen from a safe in the penitentiary office at Tucker state prison farm resulted from the new system of handling vouchers and warrants. Mr. Humphrey said he never had heard of a forged state warant before the pro-audit law was passed. "Under the old law all blank state warrants were kept in n safe in the auditor's office, but under the pre- ;,uuit law, the disbursing agent of each department and institution keeps the blank warrants," Mr. Humphrey said. "Instead of the state, auditor being responsible. for the warants, the responsibility has been placed on a .Couple o^.l^imkcd flishtuxioe-««ent3, i which increases the opportunities for theft or misuse of the warrants," Refreshes Auditor's Memory Answering Mr. Humphrey's statement, Mr. Smith said responsibility is exactly where it was before the pre- audit law was passed and added that in 1931 "warrants were issued by the present state auditor on forged vouchers in the aggregate sum of $503.40 of which ?362 still remains uncollccted." 10 comptroler referred to state ihway vouchers said to have been ilen from a highway district office. 'Some of the vouchers never were recovered but worants were issued by the state auditor on nine of the vouchers 'and the warrants Were cashed at the state treasurer's office. A former employe of the Highway Department served: a jail sentence in Memphis in connection with • passing the forged vouchers in that city, nc Comptroller's Response. Comptroller Smith's statement follows: "The pre-audit act is blamed by Mr. Humphrey for a condition permitting forgeries of vouchers. He is quoted as having said that "instead of the state auditor being responsible for warrants, the responsibility has been placed on n couple of hundred disbursing ugents." "Responsibility is exactly where it was before the pre-audit law was enacted. Then, us now, disbursing agents were not charged with the vouchers, and no record was kept with respect quantity, or serial numbers. The ,, rgccl Hirsch voucher for ?156.77 which Mr. Humphrey had photographed, was th'j fourth presented, three of •'which passed back into circulation without even a memorandum. "In 1931 there was no pre-audit law, but highway warrants Nos. 33305, 33312, 33790, 33791, 33792, 34041, 34705, 35469 and 37371 were issued by the present auditor on forged vouchers in the aggergate sum of $503.40, of which amount $362 still remains uncollected. Recovery was had on warrant No. 34041, in the sum of $50.50, on warrant No. 35469, in the sum of $40.40, and on warrant No. 37371, in the sum of $50.50, otaling $141.40. These transactions might be borne in mind when comparing merits and demmerits of the old and the new system." do. I honor McKcc, whatever he thinks. But I despise the high-hat, sniff- sniff chorus-boys. XXX It looks like the United States government is going to teach Dr. A. B. (To-Hcll-With-the-Constltution) Abington some respect for the constitution after all. Governor Futrcll is advised Friday that with Abington's bill prohibiting deficiency judgments now on the statute books, Arkansas may not be able to qualify for relief under the federal farm mortgage refuding plan. Ablngton was going to do something in a hurry for the relief of debtors. But the federal government, loaning new money for old, says it isn't coming into a state where the law threatens to saddle it with a loss. Governor Futrell is deeply pained. He recalls he let the Abington bill become a law without his signature. Something has to lie Cone to -bring Arkansas under the provisions of federal relief. The last recourse now is the state supreme court, which will be prayed to deliver us from Dr. Abington's "velicf" bill. XXX Talk about debts is always painful. But what we arc beginning to realize is, that the right to get into debt being a strictly private matter, no government is ever going to get us out again.

Address WASHINGTON.— (JP)— The government's ready assistance in any movement on the part of idustry to rid itself of cut-throat competition was pledged Thursday night by President Roosevelt. Addressing the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, which for several days had argued the question of industrial regulation "by the ^ government or by business itself"—the president called for a rising wage scale and asked leaders to be more concerned with restoring general prosperity than with bettering their own particular branch of industry alone. "In almost every industry, an overwhelming majority of the units of the industry are wholly willing to work together to prevent over-production, to prevent unfair wages, to eliminate improper working conditions," he said. "In the past success in attaining these objectives has been prevented by a small minority of units in many industries. I can assure you that you will have the co-operation of your government in bringing these minorities to understand that their unfair practices are contrary to a sound public policy."

He was too busy to go to^prayer meeting when he was on earth, yes, -he was just like some of you, you could think of everything to do that would keep you away from prayer meeting, but hear me; it's too late to pull,off a prayer meeting when you get to hell, better get caught up with your praying here, too late then. For every knee shall bow and every tongue confess" but the trouble is, some of you will do it when it's too late, just like the rich man."
