For instance, Connie Love says: "From both sleeves and skirts, In fact, the seam often disappears entirely." LrXMROX! FOR BOOTf.KM.KR. Attorney General Daugberty Is absolutely right when he 'says that effective enforcement of the prohibition laws depends upon the Imposition of adequate penalties by the courts. He Is probably not-quite right when be Intimates that request by prosecuting officers for heavier penalties may bring about the desired result. Only a strong and self-aasertlve public opinion, backing op the law will induce courts to Impose punishment of a character certain to deter violations of the law. It la notorious that bootleggers are now conducting the most profitable business going on anywhere In the United States. They do not mind paying (II nee, even If the fines are large. They can pay liberal fnes and charge them up to overhead expenses, and still put in their bank account sums thai would make a legitimate business green with envy. Fines accomplish absolutely nothing so far as enforcement of the prohibition laws are concerned. Stiff sentences to imprisonment Is all that will bring the results so earnestly desired. There is absolutely no eicuse for the bootlegger In these days of Industrial activity. Carpenters and bricklayers are in demand in the cities at high wages. Farmers are unable, In the active season of the yesj, to get help at wages they can afford to pay. The man unable- to secure work to earn his bread may be excused if he resorts to petty theft; ths bootlegger is not in that class. He deliberately plans and carries out law violation for the riches it will bring him. The maximum limit permitted (by law should be bls'punlsbment. The storks 'might well be revived. , LIFE'S VAUDEVILLE. By Or. Jesses Bail Naytar.) Money expended for safety Is economy, but all economy Is not always sate. Big men and women In every town are the 'same save that their spheres may be different. The newly-rich seldom remember their old friends, but the latter seldom lose any sleep over :it. It does teem strange how many "attractive arid safe investments" there, are bow to get the wartime savings of the investor in government eecuritles. "Consult your banker before investing" is a good lino to remember. The lean and hungry may live the longest, as 'that Chicago health expert says, but some people would, just as leave be dead as hungry. Whenever the wets start to hampering the dry-enforcement law by cutting the money strings, then they will lose ground most decidedly. ', Still, there are many "nervous wrecks" who have an unlimited amount of nerve. Clara Phillips, "hammer slayer," may hava gone on a little excursion, and It may be aba did sot understand her absence would cause a 'profound sensation." i Now w are. told that we are going to have Taeclsti units lu the United States, and they will be all right, It they combat the alleged Black Hand society.. This la the season of- weather surprises; be prepared! Andy Gump may have a lot of neck, all right, but he has a lot of gumption, too. It members of congress were compelled to prove their charges, there never would be so many of them going off half cocked all th time. We hava not heard of dandelions blooming in 'December In this garden spot of the world yet, ,but we are expecting to get a report to that effect from some of our faithful readers any day now. Unconscious humor never was Intended for the stsge, yet It Is the finest kind, the sort that remains fn the memory. ' A IOJfO. BENATeTlEKP. Emerging after eighteen years spent in a senate committee-room pigeon hole, the Isle of Pines treaty with Cuba, submitted by President Roosevelt, must have rubbed Its eyes f nd stretched Its limbs and yawned with apology to the sedate solons all about, Thla "Rip Van Winkle" treaty, lis Joints filled with "xheumatis" and Its brain sjlll a little baiy from excessive sleep, must have come to its full senses and felt Joyful when t.t wss reported farorsbly and sent speedily on its way to the foreign-relations committee, where the Indications are that It will not be permitted to sleep so long, if at all, for Secretary of State Hughes wsnts to "clear up the old question." Well, we should, think so. .. , Tcm ee, It is this way; the treaty relinquishes any claim of the United States to the Isle of Pines, which 1s about fifty miles off the mainland of Cuba. Americans have heavy Interests there, and they have successfully opposed the treaty's ratification in the past. In the treaty which gave Porto Rico to the United States, the Isle of Pines was not specifically mentioned and the Island has been administered by Cuba since the cession of Cuba by Spain after the Spanish-American war. To settlelthe status of the Isle of Pines, the treaty bearing that same was negotiated and then drugged and put to sleep. , . , China is to pay Japan $40,000,000 for the Shantung railway, the final chapter or the Chantung question. It is said. Wonder If China will now ask Uncle Sam for a loant .. JAIL FOR SPEEDERS. Laws muet be enforced If they are to bo re spected. When the courts of the land start generaity to locking up speeders, who are a public menace and dangerous, not only to pedoatrlana, but to those accompanying them, as well as to themaelvee, then there will be a marked slack of reckless speeding. . The Impulse to "step on 'or" is almost Ir resistible when a motorist gets on a good drive and the distances are long; but the motorist must learn to use ardlnary care; he must think of others. Of course-, wa realise that drlvtrre; is often made difficult by the pedestrian, but this Is no excuse for speeding. All over the country the feeling Is growing rapidly against speeding. Deaths have been too frequent as a result of It. In Indianapolis, Mayor Shank announces that ha expects to Jail speeders, believing that fines' will not cure the evil. And a Judge of tha same city has even gone Mayor Shank one better; he purposes to Incarcerate speeders In a padded cell and hold tnem for mental "tests, naturally assuming that a person who speeds where human life Is endangered must be unbalanced. .' Aa long as your own conscience Is clear, you should worry, as common parlance puts it. ' A husband's love is pretty valuable after all; a Vermont wife has been awarded Judgment for $165,000 against her husbands' parents for alienation of his affections. Who would have believed It? Ulster haa renounced the, Irish Free state, but that was to have been expected. What the ' world wants to see is the fighting stopped. "Meeaure your mind by a satisfied appetite and economical expenditure," says an advertisement. . Which is good advice, but few of us are inclined to follow It. , "MY NAME IS NOBODY A man in Philadelphia hanged himself because he was "sick of living." He left a really notable note. "When a man vets so ha can't do his work right it Is time for him to get oft the earth," It said. Then he added, "My name ia Nobody." We are not going to say that "Nobody" did the right thtng because it la wrong to commit any kind of murder and a suicide commita self-destruction, which la not in harmony with Cod's scheme. But there is much sound reasoning In wnat the suicide observed. "When man. gets so he can't do his work right it Is time for him to get off the earth" literally Is not good advlre, but, figuratively, It is most wholesome. U those fellows who ran no longer do their "work right" would step aside, efface themselves until auch time aa they came to a proper understanding and were ready to do their "work right." this certainly would be "a happier world in which to dwell. There are sermons In stones and there are also sermons in notes left sometimes by misguided and benighted suicides. Cellar gardening has never become popular . m.nun. nuicn reminds os .that outdoor , gardening has never been taken up by all of us as mucn at Jt should; and It will not be inn , either, until It Is time to get ready for gardening, judging ny ins weather. At tr. m a . . . ...iiiuiUuu, manna, m stranger stole aa overcoat from a man in a hotel, the man gave cnase and caught the thief, who pulled a gun and -compelled tat pursuer to give him hie money, amounting to $70, and got away with the cash overcoat also. , Looks Ilka esse f adding; insult to injury. PAYING THE WAR DKBT. We are engaged In the mighty task of paying off a staggering war debt, and we are paying It rapiaiy. But It wih take many, many years to eliminate this gigantic financial bVden. We are prosperous and we. can do It, for we are going about It In a strictly businesslike way. Wa are economising here and economising there; we are economising In every branch of the federal service. An needless waste It being stopped at soon as It Is discovered. There were to many huge leaks It was difficult to locus all follow).! the unnatural condition crearVd In the baate and ! tha waste ct war, and tomt may not yet have been discovered. ! But the big thing Is wt art not onlr Bavina . off tM colossal debt, but also reducing tbV burdrti of taxes. Wa call this tood business. CONSTRUCTIVE LEClSLATIOJf. , The present Republican congress Is a "do-nothing" congress. " V Of course it Is! Why do I aay so? Because ths Democratic lesdert hava to said. And are tbey not honorable men all, all honorable men? '.A "do-nothing" congress! .'. It waa so charged during tht recent campaign. And the changes were rung upon that charge. And the people were made to bejieve that charge, mora or Jess rather more. It appears. For they voted out a lot of Republican senators and representatives and voted 1b a lot of Demo cratic legislators. - And bow the new congress, when It comet in with to many new and "freah" Democrats there prill be "do-everytbing" congreaa, doubtless. Yes, indeed of course to be sure! Who can dcubt it? Maybe It will be a "do-evervbodv" congress, at well. Who knows? Now we'll get a lot of "constructive legislation" Jutt at soon aa the new congress comet In. Who eaye to? The Democratic leaders. l'u-buh! And coming aventt east their shadows before; and those shadows are alresdy looming large. The Democrats already in congress are going to show la this session a bit of what they'll do so efficiently and completely when their new members have taken their seats. I glean all this Interesting information from a Washington despatch published In the Zanes-1 vllle Signal. And rememberthe Signet-Is a dyed-ln-the-wool Democratic sheet. Listen ' 'rX "Upon the convening of the sixty-eighth con greaa, with its enormously reduced Renubllcsn majorities, and with the insurgent Republicans holding the balance of power In legislative mauers, tne Democrats will inaugurate an earnest and comprehensive and carefully planned program aimed at recapturing the government Ah-ha! Didn't I t you we were to have some "reconstructive legislation?" I don't care" If it be designed to "reconstruct" the Democratic party! It's "reconstructive," lan't It? But hark! - .' "The 'sniping policy' that will be followed until next March will be carried into many channels." Ah-ha! And o-hof ' These Democratic politicians are the "reconstructive" ginks! Tbey are going to legislate for the people. And they are the people. f . But lend ear! "In the house the Democrats will enthusiastically support the move to Impeach Attorney General Harry M. Daugberty, President Harding's close personal friend." Why? Because Mr. Daugherty la the presidents friend. Can't you see? Isn't that "constructive" work? I should say so! And they're going to "Investigate" the department of the Interior. Why? Secretary Fall ia another personal friend of the president. More "constructive" work! And they're going to oppose the ship subsidy bill because the president sdvocates it. ? ' Yes, from this time on, everything will be "con structive!" : .,; . e .'. .-r 1 . as Attack upon milk. : For long It has been declared and conceded, by medical science, that milk is the Ideal tood especially for children and invalids. Of course, it is admitted that the milk must be pure in every sens,e that the qualifying word connote. It must come from healthy animals cows, usually. ' These cows must be properly fed and kept. Their pastures must be healthful; their stables must bo warm, airy and clean. Abundance of pure water must be furnished to these cows. All milkers, and others who handle the milk, should be free from contsglous or communicable diseases; and they should keep (heir persons and clothing clean. All vessels containing milk should be sterilised, frequently. All herds should be tuberculin tested; and the milk from such herds ss are not tested should be pasteurized before sold or used. Diseased or foul milk it an abomination that should not be tolerated. Evidently Englsnd is growing, suspicious of the purity of her milk supply. For the Rural New Yorker clips, from the Manchester England, Guardian, an article and a bit of doggerel verse from the London Times, attacking milk as "the baleful Juice exuded from the cow." I shall proceed to quote: "I maintain that much milk can not be taken by man with Impunity, and. further, that It li responsible to? more disease and deaths than alcohol. A Harley street physician In a letter to the Times." How that letter will delight the English wets! And then comes the batch of verses: "My hesrt sinks down when I behold A milkman in the street; Better a brewer's dray. I'm told, Or kegs of whisky neat. , Although he looka a harmless aort, A decent kind of man. , Destruction lurks in every quart And death In every can. Oh. take " dka. absinthe, rum, ood alcohol or tin-Such tipples, thougfi deplored by tomt, . Are ssfer forms of sin! But at for milk. Its salt and use J !. liw ,h0tt'4 ": Exuded from the cow!" ,b. STORIES OF OHIO racraacu v tea lerottcili autiABca atatu AX3 HI KJ Ttie tVginniag; of Cattle Raising. Imported sheep were first brought into tbe Muskingum valley, but imported cattle were first aeen is. the Scioto valley. Until the close of the Napoleonic wars there was an embargo on tbe shipment abroad of Spanish merino sheep, but at soon as that was lifted, farmers along the Muskingum began to import, bringing the animals by wagon from Baltimore. - To this day that part of the state excelt in wool growing. The first imported cattle 'seen in Ohio were driven over-land from Kentucky to Cbilllcotbe. They had been brought from England. It was not long until cattle began to go from tie Scioto valley to tbe eastern markets. Baltimore at first secured this product but later many were driven to New York. George Renick is said to have driven the first drovg bt fat' cattle from tbe Scioto valley la 1804. He took them to Baltimore. From that rime until 1850 the raising of cattle was' a growing In dustry in Ohio. Lack of railroad facilities for shipping corn made feed cheap and cattle could go to market on their own feet. The corn was cut up and shocked,' then fed uahusked to the cattle in small enclosures, while hogs were turned In with them to clean' up what the eattle would waste. The coming of the railroad may be said to have killed the bulness,for it then be-came more profitable to market the corn, Through'the period during which cattle were driven from Ohio to eastern markets there was a famous hotel In New fork, known as the Bull's Head, which the western drovers made their headquarters. It was located where the Bowery now ia and was owned 1y the noted David Drew. Felix Dunlap, . a Ross county farmer, is said to have conducted the first formal cattlo sale'ln Ohio. It took place on his farm near Chll- ucoine, uctooer 28, 1833, and marts the beginning of a homo demand for line Cattle. Dunlap organized a company to import and deal In fine cattle, which preyed very profitable doubt was a great benefit to early day stock raising In this state. -, Editor's Note The missionary Flnley. drove a herd of cattle from Chllllcothe to Detroit in 1800. v TWENTY YEARS A83 it COD KEEPS HIS COVENANT: Know therefore the Lord thy Cod. lit it Cod. the faithful God, lch keepetb covenant and merry lth them that love Him and keep Hit commandmenti tt a thousand generations.
