For PiM-sliins's supposed .-iicccli was made in modem Paris, amid all of the modern devices for setting down exactly what happens; what possibilities for error must there not, have been in the days before shorthand and the- omnipresent,' newspaper reporter? Did Lawrence, for example, really .-ay, "Don't cive up the ship"'? Did Nelson really declare "Kngtand expects cv;ry man to do his duty"? Did Grant declare that he proposed to "light it out on this line if it takes all summer"? Did Patrick Henry demand thai lie be given liberty or death? All of this is disturbing. General Pershing really should not have disillusioned us. That "Lafayette, we are here" was too good a legend lo kill, lie ought to have left us believing in it. Cut Douon the War Debts There is sound sense to the sutfges- tion of Albert II. Wiggin, chairman of the Chase National Hank of New York, • that the United States governnunl move for a rvtltiction in interallied debts "for good bminess reasons." Mr. Wigpin points out that business recovery lags because foreign nations cannot net money enough both to pay the war debts, with interest, and to buy American exports. Scale the debts down and nur export trade would ri-:c (ijrnin JUKI American fuctories now idle will lie busy oiicti more. Tliis is simply common sense; but it is to be doubted if Mr. Wig«m'.s suggestion will be complied with. There will be plenty of short-sighted people lo object to any reduction in the allied debts; plenty of people who cannot sec beyond the eml« f »f their own noses, to whom such a step would smack of charily, altruism and "internationalism." I wells need protection against palu- tlon, whereas driven wells In sandy H] soils are almost Invariably safe; 1| However, the surest and best meth- ', od of safeguarding'the quality of a public water supply is by artificial. BE SURE YOU'RE RIGHT- Autos and Prosperity The Business Conditions Weekly of the Alexander Hamilton Inslitulo predicts that automobile production in the United States this year will bs about equal to that of 1928, when approximately 4,350,000 cars were sold. This is welVbclow the, figures fur 192D—the banner year of all time—but substantially abov; the record for 1030, when tho total was only 3,350,000. The importance of all of this lies in the fact that American industry as a whole cannot prosper if the automobile industry is sick. The institute remarks that "the attainment of the au- tomobils saturation point in 1020 was 'more responsible for the general business slump in 1030 than any other factor"; and it is not hard to agree with that observation. If the automobile industry is really on the vergs of regaining its health, the outlook for other industries is measurably brighter; and, conversely, if Detroit should continue to -ufl'er, the rest of the nation would suffer with it. The Oath Of Innocence New York's troubles with its crooked judges are, of course, New York's own concern, and they don't affect the rest of u j very greatly; but there is, nevertheless, no reason why we provincials should not get u <iuiel chuckle over Mayor Walker's recent action in calling on his city's magistrates to take sols inn oath that they did not buy their offices. As a gesture, it probably will do n certain amount of food. Surely it can dci no harm; and that, to a harassed mayor like Jlr. Walker, must be something. Hut there is Koinsthing,, humorous in it,, just the same. Imagine a man who has paid $10,000 to some crooked'politician for a judgeship being .so conscience-stricken that he would fear to swear that he had not done so! /^T A TVY'T'O bLAJNLlLb inoval of contamination of various Finally, chlorination can be used In order to kill all harmful bacteria.

Parents, mothers, are paying a lot of attention to children's diet these days. For it is far more economical and pleasant to keep a child well by feeding' him correctly than by nursing and doctoring hi in back to health. Of course the doctor should be consulted regarding what a child should eat and what he should not eat. But do you realize that the leading manufacturers of food now seek the advice and approval of the leading- nutritional authorities in the country, relative to he claims they make for their products, in their advertising? In other words, food advertisements are reliable sources of information regarding diet. They are based upon the results of the latest approved scientific discoveries about vitamins, minerals and roughage, in relation to vigorous bodies, clear complexions, sound teeth and properly regulated systems. So read these advertisements carefully. Consult your doctor about them. Very often the advertiser invites you to do this because he has asked authorities, whom your doctor respects, about those advertisements first.
