But/some ^of the little ones reflect shifts in the.complexion;of society with amazing suggestiveness;, and among them is a little story 'printed in a New York .paper the other day, revealing that the business of tattooing has gone into a sad decline. People don't go for tattooing as they used to, it seems. iplfcny^artists'-' -have>had to find other jobs; and those still in j»business 'haveia,different clientele.

Completes Pen Term Roy ' (Red) Edwards, sentenced to the penitentiary for five .years from Hempstead county : in the April term of court, 1926,-was pardoned Tuesday after completing his sentence. Edwards was sentenced on a charge of burglary and-grand larceny in connection with the robbery of the Washington State Bank at Washington, in the fall of 1925. Oklahoma Mer Trial Jury Sought Charles Draper, Charged With SlayitigtNw Ark- anftas Line, Face* Court 1DABEL, Okln.—(/P)—Remote nooks of McCurtain cotinty w«* Searched Monday afternoon fat JtilttiM for the trail of Charles Oraper, rmmntineer, charged with the muraer of three men in a wooded section near the Arkansas state line. His shaggy hair tousled and his face unshaven, Draper was brought into court Monday morning to begin the fight for his life. He determined to make the fight after becoming the father of a son. Previously he had confessed the triple killing and indicated he would plead guilty, provided officers Would not prosecute until after the baby wns born. The regular jury panel Of 52 was exhausted early and Judge George T. Arnett delegated four officers to seek 40 veniremen each in communities where newspapers arc not circulated extensively. Court was recessed for the day. Only one juror of the original panel was accepted tentatively by the prosecution. Most of the veniremen were excused because they said they had fixed opinions as to Draper's guilt or innocence. Draper is accused of shooting to death E. S. Chappell, 56, Springdnle, Ark., fruit grower, and his companion, Eugene Harris, 23. Antlers, during a robbery, and to have slain Jack O'Dell, 18, when he came .from his home nearby to investigate the shots. • « • A new dam in Brazil, claimed to be the largest of its kind in South America, impounds 120,000,000 cubic feet of water. «tf *t the »«my hospital tor a •tfcttted by 6 btillet grating His nettA. l*61lce w«ff6 told that Tate had been settSrated'frerft his wife several 'tirieks atmfl Sunday night went to the ;l»me ol his fatheHftilaw and, after firing roflle Hold^Relfttlv* efM«n After Shdoting Ffty 47, wms ;in jail here MoSa&y "with a »%MC4WMiNHSN^^ »!,y..

Sale Starts Famous Cough Prescription Almost .instant relief from coughs is now .guaranteed in the use of the physician's famous prescription called Thoxine. It works on an entirely different principle; having a double action, it relieves the throat irritation and' goes direct to the internal cause not reached by cough syrups and patent medicines and the cough stops like magic, usually with the very first swallow. Taken before retiring, Thoxine absolutely prevents night coughing and insures a good night's sleep. It gives the same speedy relief for sore throat too. Contains no chloroform .or harmful drugs.. Children like .it. Remem-' ber—relief within 15 minutes 'from coughs or sore throat, or .your .moneyi back:" 35c, 60c, ! $1.00 bottles. Sold'by John P. Cog Drug Co. and all other drug stores.

The way in which he made this announcement is rather interesting. "I believe," he said, "that we're on the brink of something really great in American literature. Twelve years ago, when I first went into the publishing business, at least 50 per cent of every American list was written by English authors. Now about three-qua'rtera of the average list is the work of American writers." There will be plenty of people to share in Mr. Smith's optimism. A surer note, a wider viewpoint, have been apparent in home-grown literature during the past decade. Unless all signs fail, we are due to be getting some uncommonly good books from American writers during the next few years. Need Housing Program M " OST of the people who demand big expenditures by the government in order to provide work for the jobless pjead for the construction of new roads. A country that goes motoring as much as this one does is bound to look favorably on such proposals; yet it is worth considering if it might not be even more advantageous to launch a few large-scale housing programs in the biggest cities. 'The slums of such cities as New York and Chicago are fearful places. They are breeding,grpunds for vice and crime, fQy.jnisery and sickness. To eradicate them, and provide decent housing for people of scant means, would be to make the entire nation healthier, happier and more prosperous. If government funds are to be spent extensively in order to make jobs and stimulate industry, why is this not a good field for some of the expenditure? Tax-Supported Schools A TAX-^SUPPORTED university in the middle west recently dismissed a co-ed for failing to keep up passing grades in her studies. The girl went to court and got an injunction restraining the university from dismissing her, on the ground that a tax-supported school cannot dismiss anyone who pays the entrance fees. Now the higher courts have knocked out this injunction ; and the step ought to'lead to a saner viewpoint on the function of the state university. Even if such an institution is supported by the taxpayers, it has a right to say who may and who may not enjoy its privileges. Each of its students is, in a very real sence, getting help from the state treasury. In dismissing students who fail to study, the university is simply protecting the taxpayers' interests.
