Improvement District Benefits] While Uio iliseiission of Hie' recent; n-a.-isftssmwit of Ijenclits in pitviiiK and curhing and Kiittcrms districts mim!>er (UK? apparently was just so much lost MIDI ion so I'm 1 .ns any relief for protesting concerned, il ncver- Uieless served .to bring to the front some interesting information cono.ern- ing improvement districl assessments. Arkansas law governing improvc- iiK-tit districts seems to he designed to facilitate tlie orcani/alion ol' slid) districts and the sale nf their bonds. Improvements are usually desirable, and we would be the last tn suggest (hat any unnecessary obstacles l>a placed in their way. Rut taxpayers have rights and interests that deserve protection, :ind Ihe mere fact that in ignorance or enthusiasm they are often ready to accept any arrangement to speed the improvements they desire does not justify plat-hip tinreasonalile olilij, r alions upon Ik'iulHs assessed and confirmed when a project is instituted ought to be final. They represent the obligation entered into by tbe properly owner in consideration of tlie maUing of the 1 improvement. He should not be. released from that obligation for any reason short of failure to complete the improvement, and ccitainly he should not be s.ubjfct to assessments in excess of the obligation which lie accepted as- part of his original contract. lleneths assessed against property \\hen improvement: districts are formed ouglil to be the limit of the property owners obligation, subject Ho revision only on proof of error or fraud. We tlo not mean that the new assessment in district one is inequitable. In fact there are reasons to believe that it may be n better and fairer assessment than tlifi original one. But the idea that obligations assumed as- part of a contract can be increased without tbe consent of the obligated parlies seems to us wrong in principle and highly dangerous. >UT OUR WAY The Lure of Fighting Mrazil is n long way from tlie United States, ami the civil war there is neither very 'interesting nor uniler- stiiitdabU> to the average American; but it ix interesting to note that hundreds of young men arc striving earnestly to pet. down there ami take a liiind in Die fip;htirig, even though they have not th'o remotest notion of what it is all about v Representatives of UIL- Uraxiliau rebels, who have offices in New York, art) besieged daily by many of these arduit Americans, hot for war; >o are the official rcpriwenlalives in this country of ihe Brazilian government. There may not be a hundred |>ooplo in this country who know just what is going on down there, but lliei's are a groat many who would like to be in on whatever it 'is. All of this, coming little more- than a dticade after a war that was .supposed to have disillusioned tlie world forever about lighting, is somewhat jarring. It emphasizes two facts that will rise to plague pacifists for years to come—the fact thai Inure is an ineradicable yearning for, high adventui:?. planted in the breast of mankind, and the fact that mankind persists in believing that high adventure is best gained by get- ling into a light.

MORRIS FISHBF.IN Editor, Journal of the American rficii AfwrUtion, and erf !!>•- ceia,.the Health Mijarine . "From time Immemorial.", .the ftarverian lecturer, D. tav«ll Qul- and, said. "It has been recognized that blood is esstentbl to life, but ever since man began to think there seems to have been a rooking notion th*t there was more in it than a mere nutrient fluid." Trie story of the gradual changes of opinion of mankind concerning the nature of the blood Is one of the most fascinating histories in science. It involves all sorts of confused ideas. attempts ordinary at magic, and theories which extra- were only destroyed by the development of the microscope nnd our modern knowledge of the blood. It Is Interesting to realize that some of the formed elements in the blood were discovered only within the last 100 years, and that actual knowledge ot these formed elemenU Ins be«n available only for the last 60 year*. For Instance, the m»n who first- described pernicious anemia In 1122 apparently never looked at fee Wood, but con cerned hims*U only with Uic gross symptoms. ,. . ^.- . :-. The first record of a microscopic ex*mlnftUon ot the blood in dis- *fts« wts apparently dated about '845 vhen-an Englishman named rlughed! Bennett, and the great German, Virchow, simultaneously described .ithe appearance of the b'^od iir th> condition called leuke- nt»,:« disease in'which the manu- 'acture of.:the. white blood cells runs wild.'- . Actually most of our modern knowledge, of the blood depends on the fact that the great Ehr- llch, who first discovered salvarsan. began to d*»lop stains which are applied to'- *p«:lmens of blood withdrawn from a vein and dropped on a slide, these stains having the poww to bring out the various elements Tlthln the blood cells. The manufacture of Wood goes on oonrtahtty In the human body, some dlse&ses,- such as pernicious anemia, the destruction goes on rapidly. By the giving of liver, the manufacturing rate may be speeded up to such an extent that It Is posalble to make a number of i*d blood tells far beyond the u«i»l rtquitmiBM.
