Parnell and the Governorship The Courier News, as most of our readers are well aware, has never been a great: adniir.-r of Harvey Parnell. We/ can think of lots of men who'in our opinion would make Arkansas a belter governor. Bill Harvey Parnell is the choice of the people.of this state for the governorship. His renoniinntion in last August's Democratic primary was in all but name hi; re-election to Hie office. The effort of the Kcpublican state central committee to keep the governor's iiame off the ballot on the sheerest kind of a technicality is nothing less than an attempt to deny the p:oplo of Arkansas the right to tho governor of their choice. It merits the resentment of all Democrats, in fact of all citizens. We are not trying to rate; any long laid spooks. , Arkansas could survive a Republican governor, might even lind that party's present nominee, whoever he "may be, a better governor than Harvey Parnell. But thai does not excuse an effort to insure the el'dion of a Republican by denying the voters of the state any choice in the matter. Harvey Purnell is not charged with any fraud or improper expenditure of money. The, effort to disqualify him is based simply and solely on his own admission of technical violation of a fool law. It is surprising that the Republican state committee would *eek an advantage 1 on such a basis; it;is unlliink- - able that Tiny court would 'let such a technicality outweigh the expressed will of the people of the state. the Atlantic again, ,asj efficiently us if that perilous and difficult flight ..were the simplest thing on carlh.

McGregor was driving his team along a narrow mountain read when two bears, locked together In true fighting manner, rolled down on top of them. The horses and driver were hurled off (he road, and over a short clifT. The horses were tangled in their harness, and McGregor had to hike two miles for an axe to free them. Nobody was badly hurt.

Duke William claimed that Harold had agreed to support his claim to the English crown on the death of Edward the Confessor, and, whefi this was not done, William began preparations to wrest thD crown irom .Harold by force. Harold had just conquered his brother and rival, Tostlg. at Stamford Bridge, and when he heard that the Normans were ravaging the south he immediately hastened in-that direction. Thcr Norman army was divided into three parts, the center being led by Duke William In person. Shortly gulls were blamed for spoiling a good golf match between Bob Wolfrain of Portland and Hugh Miller on the Grays Harbor course here recently. Wolfrain was playing an excellent game, up to the seventh hole. His drive there was near perfect, the ball rolling far down the fairway. Suddenly a gull swooped down, pounced on the bouncing, rolling ball and soared away, apparently, swallowing the little whita ball, or taking It home for little i gulls to play with. The golfer could find no rule to I cover such an occurrence, am 1 , ! anyway, the Interference upset him so completely that his game was off the rest of the round.

MORRIS FISllDKIN Editor Journal of the American Mcdlrnl Association, and of Hy- gcla, thr Health Magarius Among the public health lectures given Harvard Jiedical lonj; sessions at bridge or pinochle School on the personal care of the human being wns one by Alfred Worcester on the care ot the aged. When It is realized that up to 100 years ago the average nge at death was 35 years, It is easily understood why the care <.( the health of the aged has no: been particularly a problem for medical science In modern times whon thii average age at death is more than 55 years and when a considerable number of people live to 75 nnd 80 and even r.p to 00 years of age. the problem of the care of the aged is assuming increasing importance It must be realized thru the man or woman who is o!d has diseases which are rUfTcrcnt Irom those of the chtid Babte are much alike aud I! is possible lo establish routine methods or cantor their hygiene. It is doubtful that any two elderly men n women arc exactly alike: ii is questionable that any systematic method of care for all of them ran be outlined. Don'l Chnnjro Hahils The elderly man or \vo:; who hns suffered with a colmi;,- disorder has, rio doubt, established habits throughout life which aiv practically a necessity for hi... .> r her comfort.. It Is not wl<o lo .ulcmpt to change all of the habit.- of the tinies .of illness. Smoking, small amounis of nl coholic liquor, coftce drink:.-.;, and may le the factors of happiness which have made for old age. and to attempt to remove them from the aged may result in dissatisfaction, mihappincss, nnd perhaps even in nn earlier death. There is a great tendency for the iged person who is ill to get into >cd and to stay there in hopos '.hat vest will bring about complete recovery. Far too often, however. :hc better procedure would be to ;et the old man or old woman in:o a chair and out Into the sunshine. Four Chief Factors The four factors which Dr. Worcester emphasized as most impor- :ant for the health of (he aged arc more warmth, more rest. les ( strenuous work and less food. The control of the diet is most difficult. It has beerr said agnin and again that man digs his grave with his teeth. Before modern dentistry, most, human beings los' their teeth by the age of 45 or SO and thereafter had to eat loss food and softer food. These things protected the Intestinal tract. With the coming of artificial teeth, the age>i are able to attempt the caling of quantities of food and forms of food which formerly ivere forbidden them. It sccni! likely that ninny of the Ills as well as the deaths ot the aged are due lo overeating and unfavorable diets. Constipation is associated with a strike on the part of the weakened musculature of the bowel against too much work beinj thrown upon it. There is a tendency among some of the aged to force Ihe weakened musculature by N. E. W. S. The earliest newspaper always printed a sign at the top of the first page of every issue depicting the points of the compass. The letter N, for North was placed at the top. Below it appeared a "plus" sign. At the right, E, for East. At the left, W, for West, while below the letter S indicated South. Later, the "plus" sign was dropped and the letters "N.E.W.S." appeared, implying that the information printed ..came from the four corners of the globe. And so we got the word "Ne_ws," meaning the very latest information on any subject. The advertising columns are "News" as much as the editorial columns. Advertising is packed with news. News of the latest styles, of a new food, of an improved household utensil, of a powerful and low-priced automobile, of trips to Europe and all ports of the world —and so on." Advertising has become "news," and people depend on advertisements for accurate inform : ation about things they wish to know. Reading advertising is a useful and profitable habit. It saves time, by telling you where desired articles may be purchased. It saves money because advertised merchandise is more dependable as to quality and durability than non-advertised wares. And, advertising is accurate. You can trust the "news" that you read in advertisements. Read them as you do the editorial columns.
