Most important is plenty of attention on your part to the correction of 'the 'difficulty. Reiteration of the wam- ring" anfl constant removal of the fingers Will in most cases bring about 'some -result. Nail-biting and dirt eating are bad •habits-jjvhich usualy develop in child- 'reiv jthat are excessively nervous or Whose general health is less than normal. Children with such tendencies must also be controlled by watching .'and by every effort to break up the ihabit as early as posible. Most .children can be stopped from 'wetting the "bed at the age of two and one-half years, some much earlier, and '>a few not until they are after three years of age. After three, regular wetting 'of the bed is an abnormal performance and should be controlled. To prevent this habit, give the child plen- • ty of milk and water early in the day, 'but.' no fluids after four o'clock in the .afternoon. At 10 o'clock pick up the child and give it an opportunity to •empty -.the bladder. ' .Here again, mental attention is ex- :ceedingly important. Everything possible "should be done to make the child interested ond cooperative. In » this; .rewards are more effective than ^ punishment. ^ The' interest of the child can be , gained by marking on a calendar the days on which it is rewarded for be. ing" successful. It is, of course, impor- taht that every physical defect that is * noted .be properly controlled. he gees orders onions and steak. If he knew 'the truth it would be about the milk. Not ithat it wasn't a very -good thing. But not at the moment. He drank it only an hour be- 'fore his dinner and milk is a deliberate and slow dff ester. It has to turn into soft curd and this takes time. The stcmach, being busy, doesnn't send up its message to the palate as uual for more food. When it was through with its little job on that one glass of milk !lt was quite ready for its real and customary fodder. The tablets were not needed. Children the Same 1 And so with children. Many do not eat enough at mea,'. time to keep them happy until the next meal. They are given a little snack of something to help them hold out, especially when there is a long wait. This "something" j is as often as not a glass -of milk, an hour or an hour and a half before meals. What happens is exactly the same as to our genetlman friend. And the •mother wonders if Johnny is taking down sick. Give him milk by all means, but in time for the stomach to be ready to receive new food. If near meal time a little fruit juice or fruit will clear out more quickly. Milk with a meal is all right. Ice cream probably does the same thing. Added to the milk or the cream •'is the sugar, and sweets before a meal put an end to appetite. But don't think that children don't need sugar. ' Except in a very few cases they do. They burn it up in energy. I1ICUIC -t'ODAV .•HOOTS' tt A K H'II it ft. .in ana prellj. hrlonun co thp .vmnim-r Kft nt l.nri'linc.-k. riiHhliin'niili' fipfi lorU wiihurb.

Iluss Lund, the new swimming Instructor. Isabel — or somebody- had languidly dismissed Russ as a "big roughneck." He was a strong, squarely built young man of 25 or 26 and therefore, to Boots, one of the oldsters. He had a thick, unruly crest of stiff brown hair, magnificent shoulders and a rather engaging smile. Boots could not r»- member actually having spoken t» him before, although she bad known, of course, for a number of weeks who he was. He simply did not "belong." Today she returned his greeting apathetically. Nothing mattered. "Going over town?" SliB nodded, already moving across the big, bare room, scented with dust, its «oor scarred by young dancing feet. She was Jn a very daze of pain and misery. What did it matter what ha asked her? Rusg Lutid was at her side. "I'm driving. Can I drop you?" Another day she would have refused, politely and definitely. Today she shrugged her shoulders and stepped into his little car.

Witt Shoe Repair Shop 210 South Mnin Better Be Sure About the Next Sheriff We are living in a period of great unrest. Something has happened which has caused all citizens, both good and bad, to be less respectful of the strict rules of law. It may have been the World, War; it may be the depression; it may be the uncertainty of the Administration of Justice, but it is quite plain to thinking people that one of the needs of the present day is the strict an^l swift apprehension of criminals. Perhaps nothing will do more to prevent wrong-doing so much as the knowledge that the Sheriff, who is our high peace officer, will be impartial and relentless toward wrong-doers. Against modern criminals equipped with fast cars and machine guns, nothing will prevail, except .just as good equipment plus a Sheriff with long experience', faultless courage and grim determination. In the present race for Sheriff there is one man, Mr. Clarence Baker, who, his friends believe, has all of these qualifications. His record as Chief of Police and Deputy Sheriff are known to all. However, he is not a good politician. We realize that he is not presenting his fine qualities to the people as we know them, and so some of his friends take this opportunity to present to the public this statement, and to urge all citizens that the man to be Sheriff should be most carefully examined, for no office in the present election is of such importance. 100 Friends of CLARENCE BAKER 1
