The result, for many communities of the state has been the tying up, ! temporarily at least, of funds and the • destruction of facilities for the orderly conduct of business, all at a lime when the communities involved could least uf- ford any such sacrifice. Arkan&as has passed through a try• ing year, and has a trying period ahead.

The men to whom it is.due. are .for the most part on the sunny side of middle life. They arc establishing businesses of their own which need all the capital they can command, they have families of young children for whom they desire to provide homes, some of them are handicapped,by debts they would like to gel out of the way. They are men, in' other; words, who would put the money into circulation by sending it for constructive purposes. For the United Stales to settle its obligalion to tli:m would be a well earned reward to the soldiers of the world war and a constructive piece of national economics. A Confidential Mailer The (joining session of Congress will ho asked to pass a law authorizing the Census Bureau lo furnish state officials with the names and addresses of illiterate persons, to h: used confidentially in campaigns lo reduce illiteracy. Under existing law, this information cannot be given out. 'I ht. proposal is a good one/ and tle- serves lo pass; nevertheless, one may hoi>e that it will not set a precedent. The information that a citi/en is compelled by law lo give a census enumerator is, anil .ought to b;-, highly confidential ; a secret, no lo speak, between the citiicen and his Uncle Sam. It ought lo remain that way; must, in fact, if the census is to have any value. This particular measure is uiulutibt- , cdly a good one. But Congress will do well to insist that there shall be no more moves in a similar direction. The Windmill Cubit M. lligdon. It seems to me that my feel take lip a whole lot of floor tpncc.

Medical Association, and of Hy- SeU, the Health Magazine It Is now generally well known that practically all of Die common food substances contain varying amounts of the Important mineral salts. Milk. which is the chief food of the infant, contains much mineral niattci and an especially large amount of calcium. It is. however, quite deficient in Iron and iodine. Green vegetables contain sodium and potassium, small amounts of calcium and iron, and, according to the section of the country In which they are raised, varying amounts of iodine. The fruits and fruit juices contain varying amounts of potassium salts, and the whole cereal grains a variety of salts, but cereals are not considered an especially good source of calcium. Eggs contain varying amounts of various salts, particularly calcium and iron. The growing infant lias to have enough calcium to provide for the growth ol the bones and of the teeth. The more rapidly it grows, the more calcium it needs.

If there is an excess amount of phosphates or of'fat In thfl tfood, insoluble calcium salts will be formed in the intestines and when too much phosphate is present, the calcium Is liekl In insoluble form. An Infant that is getting as much as two and one-half ounces of human milk or one and one-half ounces of cow's milk for every pound of Its body weight is getting enough calcium salt for Its normal requirements. If, however, Hie infant suffers from any spasmodic disorder the physician is likely to prescribe calcium salts In excess in order to take care of this condition.
