As the Christmas season approaches, we find 1 inventive genius has almost surpassed itself, and that the materials now available; for the child are more ingenious than ever before. , Toys have a;great effect on the life of a.child. Many a boy has become an engineer, an electrician, a printer, or; an ; ,aviatiqri. enthusiast because of childhood interests." Children may become so.attached to toys-that they give them actual personality. From the point of view. of health, toys interest AIS because they may occasionally be unsafe or harmful, or because they may be useful iin developing the child's- •'- physique and mind. responsibility beyond The toys - mieresting . to health from B.y Alicia Haft home: "I am disap- , /Billy -tfivel beca"use he >lp!iina-ar.d.'doeanot seem to cny responsibih'ty at !, is a bit typical of of some parents toward 3 child, v* i'at the,end of this ar- wh^t should have come first, I tieve; that the same token that puts ; older child ahead in the parent's d, places him in a class apart from others.

Too chance of having his life all " for him. * <#' the point t of viev#* df* physical de- velopmen>*include sleds/scooters, bicycles, pull toys and health apparatus, such'"as rings, bars, slides, ladders, and swings. For safety these toys should, be. strongly made,' and free from protruding edges of steel or sharp corners that will cut the flesh. A. defective pole used in vaulting, a pair of stilts that break underneath the feet, or a wagon which easily comes apart under stress may result in physical-damage-to the child and many hours'of invalidism. For little babies, toys ought to be washable. Moreover, they should be sufficiently smooth to make the collection of dirt and germs, and are dangerous. Another type of toy which should always be given serious consideration is that- which produces either noise or music: During the present agitation against uncontrolled noises, such de- .vices may well be discarded. Harsh, grating, strident, jangling, and persistent noises invariably mean damage to the nervous system, not only of the : user, but of those around him. There is'also a considerable number of toys that make for destructiveness. At a certain age a hammer, a saw, a knife, or. similar tools induce practical interests; at other ages they result only in damage to the child and his surroundings. .' Guns, bows and arrows, slingshots, and blowpipes certainly have little value for purposes of amusement and may result in damage to the health of the child himself or injury to those around him. Particularly must there be some consideration for safeguarding the eyes An air rifle is a dangerous weapon and many a child has lost an eye through its use. Mechanical toys which propel sharp pointed arrows, bits of wood, or any other material substance may equollj* be seri.ous to human health and should certainly be avoided. t Highland Saturday night and Sunday. .

He was well known throughout this section of Heiripstead county, where he had resided for many years. Mr. Beck was born tn Hnynesville, La., on Jatumry 2, 1881, and as a small child moved to Union county, Arkansas, with his parents. The family Inter moved to Ouachita county, near Camden. Here Mr. Beck was married to Miss Mal'y Ann Mitchell, on November 11, 1880. His wife survives him. j The family moved to Washington 30 years or more ago, where Mr. Beck wns for many years engaged in several different lines of business. He owned and operated a farm west of town until failing health several years ago made further activity impossible. Surviving Mr. Beck besides his widow arc two sons, O. T. (Lannte), and R. G.

While Larry Gle-nn and Matthews stood by him, Gunderson walked thwttgh the apartment to the back, opened a window and stuck his head out. In the alley, loitering ut the gate in the old board fence, were Al Peters and Tony LaRocco. "Hey," yellea Gunderson. "Come on up. gents." He returned to the front room. Doc Jeckers was still glaring up in helpless defiance at his captors. "Now that you're here, what do you want?" he demanded. "You know that warrant don't mean anything. It's easy to get one, but making it stick is something else. What do you want?" "You, chiefly," said Larry calmly. He whistled softly, as if preoccupied with something else, and looked with studious care all about the little room. While he was doing so—and while the prisoner eyed him with uneasy wariness— the hnll door opened ajifl LaRocco and Peters appeared. ""Well, boys," said Larry, "we might as well find out what sort of place ths doctor has got here." Gundeyson pulled up a chair and sat witti his knees touching • Jeckers', looking at the shrunken little man with an air of amiable menace. The other four men immediately set to work to show how trained, experienced detectives act when they are giving an apartment a s'earch. They went through the little living room with a fine-tooth comb. They penetrated into an inner of- flee, with a surgery adjoining it, and pried there. They went on to bedroom, bathroom and kitchen: and half an hour later they returned to the room where the doctor sat. looking as if they had dis covered anple evidence of untold infamies "How about it. Jeckers." said Matthews suddenly, coming to a hull in front of the little man, his hands on his liips. "Want to tell us all about it'.'" "All about what?" said the little doctor Matthews looked at him contemptuously. "You wouldn't know, would you? 1 he mused. "Well, this isn't a ver> good place to talk anyway. Jl go downtown to my office. more homey there, somehow.. I'm sure we'll all get on. better." * • . THHE prisoner looked np appre- •*•' hensively. Gunderson, with exaggerated gentleness, helped htm to his feot, and rented'one hand gently on his tipper'arm'.'- "Don't try. to,make.a break for It as .we.'go.down,.'to the car," advised GunderBon.'softly. "I might get excited' and - hurt • you." He grinned, and; shepherded •,the doctor toward the door. In the foyer the little man resisted passively. "Waft," he begged. "K we're going downtown—let me get some—some-stuff together, first"'! Larry Glenn and Matthews • exchanged glances. "Where do you keep.it?" asked Larry. The doctor stared 'at him for a long moment; then he hrugged, helplessly. "In the surgery," he said. "If rou're such" good searchers, you must've seen it. Top right drawer f the mahogany cabinet." Tony LaRocco went Into the SUP gery and came back with a smhll round pill DOT. He held it up with he question, "This?" Doo Jeckers nodded and held, out his hand-for t. Larry took the box and pocketed it, shaking his head. "Not now, Doc," he said; "After we've talked," They made the trip back to the Division of Investigation offices without incident. Matthews led .he way into his inner office, where Jeckers was planted in a chair, with the five agents- grouped about him in an irregular semicircle. Larry sat on a desk, his hands clasped about one knee,- "I'm. not going to call you doctor," he began. 'You're-a disgrace to the medical profession. If I say, 'Doc 1 it's just handy nickname, not an abbrevi ation for doctor. See?" . Jeckers looked up impassively, as if insults had long lost all power to stir him, .. "Within' the last three days," said Larry, '*you gave treatment to a man suffering. from a bullet wound—in the shoulder? Thanks." Jeckers flared up: "I didn't say yes! I didn't say a dam' thing. You can't frpme me that "way!" "Nobody's framing you. You treated a.man who had been shot through the shoulder. I want to know who the man was. where you treated him, who called you, where the man was staying, and who was with him. I'm reminding you now that by treating this man you made yourself liable, to a prison term. You may - be, able to help yourself somewhat by giving me this information." « * * ' TTNEXPECTEDLY, Jeckers leaned ^ forward confidentially and tapped Larry on the knee. "Listen," he said, grinning sardonically, "I been around here a long, long time, and I know a lot of birds that're so hard they make you little government men look like Sunday School boys. AniJ if you think that you can make me turn copper—'' "Okay," said Larry calmly. "Can we let uim cool a while?" He turned to Matthews, who opened the door to a small waiting room which opened off bis office- Matthews crossed the room, locked the dQor teaming into the hall, put the key In bis pocket, and beep.oned to Ounderson to bring Jeckers tut? the roquj. "Sit 4ow«!" fe Jeckers came in. "Gunderson, you better sit here, too—he might take t into-his head to go out th6 window." Gunderson sat down, tilted his chair back against the wall, and lit i clgdret. • Jeckers looked about ilm irresolutely, sunk into a chair, ind fixed his gaze on Gunderson's capacious boots. The other three returned ;to Matthews' office, closing he door behind them. "Well, it may be a long wait," said Larry. "But it'll work In the end. Especially since that man has ieen using the coke so long that he needs about four times as much as the ordinary rokey. He does, anyhow, : if I'm aa>y good at spot- ling a cokey by sight—and I've seen a«Ite a few." * * T ARRY. suggested that Matthews park the three men from Dover In another office, so that he could ;o about his own routine work uninterrupted, and the Chicagoan in- j stalled them in a room a few doors j down the -corridor. There they ,; grouped themselves about a table, tabulating and comparing their dis- j coveries—meager enough, as fnr as ' their immediate purposes were concerned—which they hart mnde that morning in Jeckers' office. "Well, we've done our good deed for the day, whatever happens," said Larry at last, leaning back in his chair. "We've landed ohl Doc Jeckers—and if we should fail to make this rap stick, the Chicago police will undoubtedly have plenty to hang on the old bird to put him away for a good stretch. And that's really a good deed." "It's a long, long chain," ho said FLUSH OUT 115 MILES OF KIDNEY TUBES I Medical authorities agree that your kidneys contain 15 MILES of tiny i tubes or niters which help to purify i the blood and keep you healthy. I If you have trouble with too fre- ! quent bladder passages with scanty ' amount causing burning and discom- i fort, the 15 MILES of kidney tubes 1 may need flushing out. This danger- signal may be the beginning of nag' glng- backache, leg- pains, loss of pep | and energy, getting- up nights, sweU* . ing-, pufflness under the eyes and dizziness. I If kidneys don't empty 3 pints a day and .so get rid of more than 3 1 pounds of waste, poisonous matter may develop, causing serious trouble. ! Don't wait.

"He's cracking." They hurried to Matthews' office Through the door where Gunderson was keeping his weary vigil they heard a pleading voice — n voice whose utter lack of self-con trol and complete, shameless abasement were somehow unHpeaknbb horrible to hear. "For the love of God," came a hoarse cry. "give me that little box! I'm dying! See — I can't stand stilj! It's killing me! Please. please, man— God!" Larr.y looked at Matthews with uarrowed eyes. This Isn't a pleasant trick," he said, "but there's no dodging it." He opened the door. Jeckers was pacing the floor feverishly. "Please, mister, for the love ol God — " he began. Lorry drew him to his ieet aud thrust him into a chair. "S;eady!" be barked. Jeckers, momentarily calmed, looked up questioningly. "Answer the questions i asked you this morulng," said Larry, "and you can have your box. I promise you." He held the box aloft. Jeckers wrung bis hands frantically. U talk! | I'll talk!
