Symptoms of iocomotor ataxia by Which the doctor'makes his diagnosis are rather definite". 'In the first place 'the reflexes, like the knee jerk, begin to disappear. Reason for disappearance of these reflexes 4s-, the .faqt..that the diseosp breaks <the-'path in <the spinal cord along which stimulation for the action ordinarily ' 'travels.

Not only this but he figures in , most cases .that the may as well have the game as the name-and lives up to it. • Then, too, it is the custom to judge all children as though ,lhey were grown-ups, a most unfair thing, to say the least. We forget that during the period of growth the mind is growing too. It drives its young owner to experiments that at least amaze older people, an acknowledgement of our own ignorance. Will the world never learn that childhood's so-called "misdemeanors" are seldom vicious? Most Dangerous Course The normal child,, be what he may, should not have to endure the constant air of suspicion. One thing is certain. To live in such an atmosphere won't make him any better. We have all known some child who, removed to a new environment where he was trusted, responded to that trust ahd became a good citizen. There is no more dangerous course . in the whole matter of child training than to fall into tlie habit of being suspicious of them; To anticipate what a child might do is not exactly suspicion. We know the characteristics of our own children. But let us use such knowledge to advantage— not to lower his self respect. If we ourselves lived in a constant atmosphere of suspicion we would never be at our best. Those Who know they are trusted usually try to earn that confidence. «B-ft-0» GLORIFYING YOURSELF So (H6 Rest ef Life Was Flat and Stale-Tragedy of War Generation Shown in This Novel y Alicia Hart tf« ' 8y HRUCE CATTON It is really too "bad that so many aspiring novelties have written books about the "lost generation."

The last week had been crowded with tasks, with the excltenidnt of packing and departure. Denis—Denis—Denis! He was somewhere out In tho great world, far from her. But he loved her.

"Oil, my darllnc!" • * » ".' fryHERE was a long, murmuroud '•*• Interlude then during which the man said thinss for her ear only. Porters ran the length of the cement .strip • of platform; bells clanged and engines whistled; grimy men hung out of etiglno cabs and shouted cryptic nothings to oilers below. The train moved. . . . Two or three staid people with novels In their hands came to the door of the observation platform and tooUe'd curiously nt the young people sitting so close together there. Boots nnd Denis were ob- livioUs to alloC this. Their train ran past factories, past bridges and signals. It ran rhythmically past roundhouses and towers and clicked over tho ties past shoddy houses with chicken coops and metal rooted garages. Boots and Denis were in Arcady; their liands linked, their ardent faces close together, they wandered In sweet scented fields where only bright-faced (lowers grew. "Ami you're going to California, too," she marveled after a long Interval. "I'can't believe It." "We'll bo married as soon as wo get there," he said. "Nn good wasting more time. We've done enough of.that already." He had a place near San Jose. It was just a small ranch—a inora GO acres, lie told Uer, deprecatlngly. It bad a comfortable old house on it. They'd live there half the year while he worked. Then New York tho rest of the time. . . . "I can't give yon what Edward would have," he told her. But she had her hand upon Ids lips, silencing them. "What I can't understand Is how you happen to be on this train Just now," she marveled. "I thought you were ou the South Seas—" He had taken a fruit boat, he told her, bound for San Domingo. But lie'd boon eaten by a lever of restlessness. He'd got off at Charleston and stayed there u Tew days, trying to play, trying to work. Notlilug Had seemed right. He bad taken u train for Chicago. "And now—this!" They stared at each other, overcome svlth the wonder of It all. Mrs. Raeburn, passing through the last car In a rather anxious search for Boots, a deferential trainman in her wake, paused as though suddenly struck dumb. "gee the young lady?" the cffl- clnl prompted cheerfully. "Yes. I—I see her. Sorry to have bothered you. It's quite all rlglit." The good lady sat down at one ot the little baize-covered writing tables. Almost automatically sue. drew pen and paper toward her oud started to write. "Daar Florida: Boots is happy at last. . . ."

Witnesses Think Jury Made Error Confusion Still Exists in Furlough of Poison Suspect LITTLE ftOCK—An investigation Monday of records in n voluminous file nt the governor's office on Frank Floyd, under life sentence for the murder of Neely Shaver in Lawrence comity in 1930. foiled to cienr up confusion which resulted Sfltut'day When Governor Futroll granted nn irtdefU nito furlough to Floyd to permit Win to receive medical treatment. The furlough order rend ns follows: in part: "Conviction Was upon the testimony principally Of tWo children of (he deceased. The theory of the state was that one John Mullen whs responsible for the poisoning of the deceased arid that he had Floyd sit up with the deceased and substitute poison for the medicine that the doctor left. The two prosecuting Witnesses slgtietl rt statement to the effect thnt they believed the jury misconstrued their statements and thnt thiiy believe Floyd is innocent. Judge Bone recommended clemency and stnted he felt SUrc Floyd was innocent of tho Crlnle." W. E. Shaver or Sweet Home, S. L. Shuver of Jonesboro and Miss Bernice Shaver of Pine Bluff, chiltren of tbe poisoned man, said emphatically Sun i day that they signed no such statement. Several score letters and petitions urging clemency for Floyd were In the file at the governor's office, and many of the leters were addressed to former Gov. Harvey Parncll. In the file was the following affidavit, executed January 2, 1932, before E. Taylor, notary public, in Jackson county: '•We tho undersigned witnesses testified in the case of tlie stute of Arkansas against Frank Floyd, who was charged with knowingly giving Neeley Shnvov poison medicine that killed him. "We bellcvo (lie jury misitndrstood cur testimony to mean one thing" svhen we meant another. We did not think then nor do we think now that Fiank Floyd had any knowledge of medicine being poison to the extent that it would kill him. "Therefore, we pray the Hon, Harvey Parncll governor of Arkansas suspend him and let him go back home to his family. "Signed, Ora Pierce, Freedis Pierce." Letter From Judge Bout There also were several letters signed by Circuit Judge S. M. Bone, the trial judge. One of these, dated May 10, 19.'!3, was addressed to Governor Futrcll.
