The Governorship Race The ctlitoi- of lht> Courier News has hutl sitieli u difficult, time trying to maku lic:t(l or tail out uf I lie current Democratic jjubcnialorhttl i'nmimik'H. anil has wobbled so often in liis iucli- iwlion to support, lirsl one of the three lending candidates and then another us the campaign developed, that he hesitates to say anything at all iilionl the matter for fear of-being forced, al a later date, to cat his words. From enthusiasm for Urooks Hays, to passive resignation to another two year of Parncll, to a feeling that perhaps John. Sheffield is the man Arkansas needs, is the history in brief of our personal..inclination in this race, and whether it reflects our own instability or the confusion of issues anil personalities in the contest itself is something our readers can judge for themselves. Some of our good friends, cool themselves toward both Parnell and Hays, and their respective organizations, lull us that Sheffield is n "dangerous man." Perhaps so. Certainly if he meant half of what he said Friday night he will prove a dangerous man in the governor's chair for those who have destroyed the morale of public service in various departments of the state government and who have prostituted positions of honor and power to their own stilish advantage or to the maintenance of their political iwsitious. Is there not this to be said in Lie- half of Sheffield? Whatever he may be he-is, at least his own man.?. He is conducting his nwn campaign, without substantial financial or other supiwrt from anyone with a private interest to ' serve. Whatever he may want for himself he will have few debts to pay to so-called political leaders and political hangers-on. MONDAY, JULY28. li)30J For A Run-0/f Primary Yesterday's gubernatorial primary in Texas affords new evidence of the value of the second or run-oil" primary as a means of obtaining nominees who truly reflect the choice of a majority of the voters. Miriam Ferguson ,lcd the Meld of 11 candidates by a substantial margin but her vote nevertheless was onlv a OUT OUR WAY rather small minority of the total. More Te.xas Democrats preferred "Ma" Ferguson than any one of I he other ten aspirants for the nomination, but it is neither impossible nor improbable that in the run-oil' it will be found thai a imijorily would rather have Ross Sterling thiin .Mrs. Ferguson. At any rate, whoever the nominee may be lie (or she) will he a majurity, not a minority choice. In Arkansas, where lliere is no rim- ofl' primary, a large Held for any of- lice usually results in the nomination of a candidate who received less than a majority of the- votes cast. That was the case two years ago when Harvey Parncll was nominated, ami it may be the case again this year. Should Parnell, in the primary next August 12, win by only a narrow plurality, it would be morally certain that he would be defeated in a straight- out contest with whichever one of his opponents ran .second. The vote which Krooks Hays awl John Shell'ield will poll will LIE as much a protest vote against Parnell as a vote for either oae of them, and in a second primary would be concentrated in large measure up- 'ou whichever one of them ran strongest in the first nice. Without the run-off primary a strong political'machine can maintain itself in office, by the simple expedient of dividing the opposition. The machine can produce a substantial vote for whomsoever it chooses to support. That vole against a field of several opponents, strawmen or otherwise, is pretty certain to be enough for victory when a plurality is. all that is needed. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark George Hljglns quite regular up to that point, but he went and committed the unforgivable sin when lie belabored President Hoover during the debate on the naval treaty. Of course, George Higglns was only being himself when he'waded Into the anti-treaty fight, but he might have refrained from declar- ng that Hoover in presenting the treaty had "affronted the American people." So there are ninny Republicans who feel like saying to George Higglns: "Son of a wifd Jackass, yourself!"

WASHINGTON LETTER On July 28, 1014, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia five days after delivering "an ultimatum containing demands with which the Serbian government would only partially comply. Austria-Hungary had accused Serbia of complicity in the asses- slnation of the Austrian heir-apparent, Archduke Francis Ferdjj- iiand and his wife, at Sarajevo on June 28, 1914, and alleged that the anti-Austrian machinatioans of Serbian patriots menaced the integrity of the Hapsburg empire. Serbia u'as anxious to avert the hostilities that threatened. Diplomats of other European powers sought to Iron out the difficulty, but Austria-Hungary refused to submit the matter to peaceful arbitration. The Uussian government, sympathetic to Serbia, ordered the mobilization of its army. This caused Germany to declare what it considered to be a defensive war against Russia. Two days later Germany declared war against Russia's ally, France. When Germany violated Belgium's neutrality, England considered this sufficient cause to declare war against the invaders The United States entered the conflict on April (i, 1317, by declaring war on Germany.

MORRIS FISIIBK1N Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hy- gea, the Health Magazine Until the middle of the nineteenth century the practice of medicine was carried on by an individual who was presumed to be competent in every medical field. He could lake care of a pain in the abdomen, a cough, a cold, pneumonia, tuberculoses, an eruption on the skin, infantile diarrhea, or typhoid fever. He advised for the baby, for the mother, and tor ic grandfather, in an emergency c would lake off a limb, open the bdomcn and even the skull. Not ifrequently he overlooked serious ondilions for the simple reason hat the methods for diagnosing uch conditions had not been per- ected. nov was there available all f the machinery of modem medi- ine which aids the modern physl- ian in making a difficult diagnosis or in treating serious diseases n formerly Inaccessible [rations ol he human body. Around 1880, the discoveries mad< by Pasteur changed definitely the rend of modern medicine. The establishment of the fact tha germs cause disease brought about control of the acute infections diseases. It became possible to prevent their transmission from one person to another and to stop the devastating plagues which used to wipe out one-half of an entire community. In A period of a few weeks, as a result of the. discovery of the germ causes of many conditions and of need for raising germs and studying their chemistry, it became possible to prevent infections by inoculating people against them. Associated with this knowledge came new concentration on the blood as the important medium in luircd only by long years of pracl'l Ice. ;| Today what used to be called thtj iractlce of medicine Is divided Into it least 16 recognized specialties!

We're speaking of the advertisements, of course. If it weren't for the advertisements you would be a stranger in the market, surrounded by strange names, strange brands. Buying would be guessing, unless you tested every article you wanted before you bought it. 9Of As it is, you can make up your shopping list in a few minutes, and buy with confidence instead of suspicion •—knowing what you're getting—knowing that consistently advertised goods must maintain standard quality.
