Rulhvoii of Baxter county, who for a number . of years has ijceii the orBuimalion'.s gwidinjjf spirit, ''delivered a valedictory address in which ho lamented the trend toward centralization of government and called for a return of greater authority to local elective officials. The association then got down to business and udoptcd a legislative pro. grifln. calling, amony other things, for an increase in the gasoline tax Uiui- bciik to the counties, assumption by the stafe of the part of the salaries of hojne and farm demonstration agents now paid by the counties and assumption by the slate of the full cost ojlertrinrr for patients at tho state tuberculosis sanitarium. Discussion of tho merits of these proposals may be left to another lime. It is to be hoped, however, that, in advancing them the judges iealix,ed -thai they were asking for an extension of very trend toward centralization which they had just heard deplored by their 1 retiring president. When a stale solicits or accepts financial aid from the federal government it sacrifices a part of its independence. When, a county accepts aid from the federal government or from the state it surrenders' a measure of _ its authority/ You don't have'local 1 self-government when' yoi'i rely on monej- from tha outside; to carry on the functions of government. -The county judges of Arkansas do not occupy an enviable position. Confronted with growing demands by their constituents on one hand, their powers are hcdgedi in by constitutional rc- "stridions on Uiq other. Bui they have not followed a course calculated to maintain and protect the powers which are theirs under the constitution. By failing to maintain local revenues they have made themselves dependent on help from the outside. Instead of collecting the per capita road tax of example, they appeal for state aid for local road work; instead of using •their powers to maintain property assessments at the level contemplated by the constitution they have chosen to leave the support, and hence the control, of certain county functions to the state. And the •'- more oujsido aid they are ablei|6\ obtain, the less of local self-government will remain. 'The same thing of .course is" happening with respect to schools and other supposedly local functions. We cannot dodge the responsibilities of local .self-government and retain the rights and prerogatives. . America's Complex s frequently appear that America still is suffering from an inferiority co'mplcx. In music; there was the case of the Chicago singer who made little headway in America until he added a foreign "elli" to his name. Domestic aclora, trying to . get anywhere in Hollywood, first must erase their twang or drawl, ..whereas the clipped speech or heavy accent of foreigners is greeted fuwnishly by screen moguls. . '"'.;.."' In America, lecturers from abroad' almost invariably are lionized; and a testimonial for a medicinal product doesn't sctfm to carry weight unless the authority who offers it hails from Kuropean parts, It is interesting, then, to listen to Dr. Walter .Schiller, famous Vienna physician. "You in America have developed your 'medical research to such extent that the average man can get all he , needs right in the United States. A fow years ago," he continues, "300 to 'JOO American doctors studied in Vienna; last simrmer there were fewer than 60." _ Perhaps American medics, at least, arc overcoming the national handicap. In The Spotlight, No matter how heavily the cares of office inay rest upon him, Gov. Frank Murphy of Michigan at least cannot complain that the fates are keeping him in obscurity. Governor Murphy once had a nice job as governor-general of the Philippines. He gave it up to come back home and run for governor. Cooperating ^yitli.' th.p Ilqosevelt landslide, ho was elected; 'and he had hardly 'got :thd gubernatorial chair warm before he found hinjsclf: projected into a spot of national •importance. The General Motors strike has been a crisis of which any governor could be glad to be relieved/ Nevertheless, it certainly, has turned .the spotlight on Frank Murphy, aiid given him all the .chance a-politician could ask to show Hie sort of .stuff is in him.

MOKKIS HSHBKIN' Editor,. Jiiiinul of tho American Medical Assooiitlion, nml of Ily- gi'hi,-the Ilraltb Magazine In contrast to the condition which devclo|is when there is an excessive number ol red blood, colls arc those foriiiS of disease In which Ills number of such cells, ;> nd ttic amount of red coloring matter in the blood, arc grcally reduced '. There arc, of course, various causes of .anemias'. A person may lose large amounts of blood bo- causc of a severe hcinorrhnge ns a result of .which there is lessened ability of the blood to carry oxs ! - gen. There are disease conditions which attack the blood-forming organs, so that there Is faulty production Of blood; and thciv arc also instances, because of poisoning, Infection, or some similar factor, in which the red hlooct cells are destroyed too rapidly. It should be realized thju formation and destruction of rc<| bloo:l cells goes on the human body. 'It"has been estimate:! that ;from one-tentti io om-fif- teenth of the total number of red cells are destroyed each day and that olhcrs arc formed lo lake tlicir places. This figure, however, may be too high, since the methods of estimation'now'available arc not exceedingly accurate. In developing his rod blood cells, the human being fc8ms u> require iron, copper. ce , (a!n glln . dular substances which are apparently available In the liver sonic vitamins, and some material from Ihc thyroid, gland. ' • A severe deficiency or absence of any one- of these elements will mean a disturbance hi formation of red blood cells, and thereby may lead to nncmln. Low of small amounts of blood by Weeding is usually compensated for by the blood-forming organs. Large losses of bload may be most serious.- ft 1ms been found, for Instance, that two-thirds of the blood in an animal's body may bs removed very slowly and in small amounts over a period of 24 to 30 hours without causing Us death. If. however, one-third of the animal's blood is suddenly removed, aeath follows. Most pooplo are so sensitive to the sight of blood or to the feeling of a hemorrhage, that-the lass cf Wood usually is accompanied by psychic or mental symptoms, such as shock. The loss of any small amount, of blocd causes some people to faint promptly, and develop restlessness, '. cold sweat, pal- tor, and thirst. When hemonlwgo occurs, the firtl slop necessary to prevent the development of anemia is lo slop the bleeding; nest, lo prevent shock, by applying warmth and giving considerable amounts of fluid. Transfusion of blood nowadays Is used as an emergency measure, with Ere at success. The doctor dc tor- mines whether tr.viisfusion is necessary by measuring the blood pressure am! the amount of red coloring matter in the-blood. .

Immediately the household came under the jurisdiction of the law. Tante Josephine's death was due to apoplexy, the coroner said, brough on by some unusual excitcment- • probably her nephew's death. ' Tlie confessed murderer lay where lie himself had /alien, a •victim of the sacred knife,, ant when they went to the Indian's room to accuse him of the crime, they found that he, too, was dead. Of a heart allaclc, the coroner decided again. Pearl John said that the reason for the murder of his; older brothers had been robbery, and there had been witnesses present 'when Ramon had confessed that. After a great deal of interviewing of everyone in the house, and taking copious notes on the case, the officers departed, giving permission for all concerned to leave the mesa if they reported in Santa Fe for the iiiquc; 1 .. (lie first shock over Ramon's dcfltli, Angeliquc was able to tell how she had found tho secret pane). She did not seem in the least abashed over her rca- scn for malting Petty a prisoner. "I thought Damon loved her," she said simply, as though that was explanation enough for anything.' ^Betty ran to her and impulsively grasped her arm. "It came .out all right, Angelitiiic," she said. "I forgave you. I wasn't hurt." .Angclique shook her head. "It can never be anything but v;rong for me to have sinned that way. I'll not know a inoinent's peace on this earth as long as I have such a Ihing ou my soul. I didn't hurt you, Bctly, but I hoped you Would die when I pushed you through that doorway. I was mad with jealousy anil I would gladly have strangled you with my own hands it it would have made Ramon mine alone." • . . "But there will be other men, Angclique," Bob began, then paused and looked at Betty. He knew very well that there could be no one else for him. 13e Forest took Angelique's arm nncl gently led her away. Now that flic mystery of the mesa had been explained, he was again the thoughtful, kindly host ho had been on Christmas Eve. How Igng ago that gay party seemed now, and. what tremendous changes had place since that Christmas snow storm had held them all prisoners in the hacienda! Hob was thinking of this as he drew Betty into his arms and said softly, "When and if I can get a job, Betty, will you marry me? Some oilier fellow is probably nailing that big order of tires I started out to get, but there must be something open for a fellow who's desperately in love with the prettiest, most wonderful girl in the world." She did not answer for so long that Bob tilted up her face, in sudden panic. Then her .wiile reassured him. "I was afraid you'd put it that way," she said. "Remember, I haven't anything either so we' might as 'well join our fabulous fortunes. But why put it on a money baris, Bob? I'd marry you if you never expected to have another penny as long OG you live. Sometimes I've wondered if I ever would meet the right man—all giils do wonder that, you know. I certainly didn't dream thai Thunder Mesa was going to give me the finest follow I'd ever met, and—" "Stop right there before you say something io spoil it," he in- lerrupled. "Just once in a life- :imc a man gets the chance to ic-sr someone else say what he's always thought about himself ind when it comes from you darling!" ' * « '* \ POLITE cough from the doorway made them both turn. 'earl Join, carn e j n i 0 the room, icsitatingly. "I know three's'' a vholo mob with you folks just now, but I've got to talk to you before you leave the mesa." "Sure thing! Don't mind us, de •"ores!," Bob answered. "Belty las promised that she'll lake me on as a husband if I can manage o.find a living for us both." ' "So" I 'imagined." Pearl John smiled rather wistfully. "You're udder than you realize, Bob." Abruptly he walked over to the ire and put another log on the )laze. When he came back he. had limsclf in hand once more. "The ob end was what I wanted o talk-about," he went on. "I've jot the finances and you have iracfical business experience. Why lot join forces?" "Oh, not on Thunder Mesa!" Betty cried. "I couldn't—" "I'm leaving this place, too, Betty," Pearl John told her. 'There is no reason now for me'! o slay. Anywhere, that you decide on is okay wtlli.'ine. -I'll just close.this :place ahcl let nature do he : rest. The winds-., and'-'the weather will soon attend .„ finish. Probably the ancient ,- cbk> walls will outlast the re which is really as it should be.", : Betty looked at them earnest] "Do yon remember -what Profcl sor Shaw said when we went [ his room? About queer thirl happening that he couldn't el plain, where old ruins had bcl disturbed? Maybe that was wl all this had to happen here on II mesa." Neither of them answered, u* something in . their manner tcl lhat they agreed. Bob expressed! when he said, with an effort' I make his voice casual. "1 gucl thunder Mesa i las got lliefagc l of us all. Maybe it would[lie b J to give it back to the ghosts those old-time Indians who seei Jo have staked out the first claj to the place." * * * ' 'J'HE crackling of the firoA. the only sound in the rbo. for a minute. Then Bob held ol his hand. "That was mighty whil of you, Pearl John—your offer,! mean. Maybe we can make a' of it together." "Then you're overlooking differences, Bob?" Pearl ; gripped his hand hard. "Thinl got pretty thick for me for while. 1 guess I went oil my ba ance. But don't call me Pearl Joli again—I'm going to drop that silL first name from now on. Nevl did like it, but the rest of ta family were strong for fraditiil and all that." ] A Mexican servant entered til room nnd reported that a car wl •eady to fake anyone down fro! the mesa who wanted to leave. 1 f Later, as they drove away tj ward the mesa's edge, Bell .urriod again to wave at John <l Forest, standing in the galewJ of the patio. The rays of the s>| gilded the hacienda with an \n| earthly radiance, making it mol dream-like than ever. Even il young owner seemed the figmel of; some fanciful tale, where! love and tragedy anil drama wcl all woven into a fantastic pa! tern. [ ,-Betty turned and slipped lil laud under Bob's, resting on til steering wheel. He and tlieir lovl it least, were rjal, and the cJ was carrying them at a rap! )ace straight into the greatel lappincss she had ever imagine! Bob turned and smiled dowA ler, touching the spray of rloVj Jirined to her coat.
