Office Seeders An interesting political phenomenon, typifying in a mensure at least- the twentieth century degradation of rcp- •resentative government in this country, has occurred in Illinois. • Lust April ulra. .Ruth Hauiia McCormick won the Republican nomination for senator from Illinois. A life 1 long supporter of, prohibition, she declared after her nomination: "I'll run as u dry in the election. I've always been a dry and I don't switch on ' things." Thus, with James Hamilton Lewis, a wet, as the Democratic nominee, u clean-cut wet and dry fight seemed in prospect. But after the Republican state convention had declared for a state-wide referendum on the prohibition question (Illinois has already had two) Mrs. McCormick changed her tune. "If a majority," said the lady, "arc recorded as favorable to repeal'the 18th amendment, I stand ready, when elected senator, to obey their mandate." The honest nnd .dignified, thing for a candidate for public office to do is to tell what he stands for and let (lie people take {him .or leave him. The candidate who tries to find out what the people want and then mould his personal convictions to fit is simply a job seeker. Mrs. McCormick has put herself in that class and it would serve , her very well if the threat of the Anti- Saloon league to place, an out and out dry in the race should be fulfilled and result in. the .election of Senator Lewis. BL.YTHEV1LL-B, (ARK.) COUttlEiU NEWS Something Else to Think About On Colton Farm We believe there are more expert ways lo grow coiton and that tlicro nre more cottcn experts than in any special line of fanning there Is. It is with a little amazement that one from a wheat, corn and livestock country views the absolute fidelity of men nnd women on the farm to a cotton crop. Folks will l:t a hay crop spoil, they will let livestock' starve for water; they will let their gardens ruin and everything else go to the bow-wows if only to get into that cotton 'patch nnd hoe nnd plow and slave over it.

SIDE GLANCES By George Clark "Now listen here, young fella—your contract says you'll cat oatmeal or anything else we say. Complications of Mumps Are Often Extremely Serious Ry DR. MORRIS FISHBEIN Editor, Journal nl Ibc American Medical Association, nnd of Hy- BCia, the Illciilth Magazine Seme three hundred years before the Christian era an epidemic of what was probably mumps was described by Hippocrates From thai time until about one hundred and fifty years ago little 11' any attention was paid to the disease. WUh the coming o' the bac- lerlologlc pcricd numerous Investigators tried to find a germ that was responsible for mumps and which \vould produce the disease on inoculation, but Ihc evidence In support, of nny of the germs tertnlet! hns not been sufficient to make experts believe thai the real germ had been discovered. In the meantime more and more rludenls of Infectious disease are beginning lo believe lhat (He cause Is one of those agents so imall that it caiinot be seen by the microscope, >o minute lhat it will pass through the pores of a clay filter, and hence called a flllerabic virus. The chief nMillestations of mumps, which appears most frequently in children from five lo 15 years of age, aflect the salivary glands, particularly the paro- vary gland In front of the car. The disease Is therefore sometime* called epidemic parotitis llnflam- nation of Ihe parotid). Mumps occurs six' times more often during the cold months thar luring the warm months.

Mumps is not a particularly iioublesornc disease but the complications of mumps, particularly secondary involvement of, other ;lands throughout trie -body, may ae dillicult to overcome. Whsn the glands are Infected the manifestation is especially serious be- c.icse the disease may cause destruction of loss of "function in these glands in a large percentage of all of the cases. In children lliis secondary complication docs not occur as frequently as in grown-ups. Physicians almost invariably put a grown-up person who develops mumps lo bed and keep him there for at least two weeks to lessen the possibility of this complication. Any child with mumps as well as any adult should be kepi stricl- ly Isolated until all Hie swelling, has disappeared from the glands.
