Roosevelt gave an interview to the North American Newspaper Alliance in which lie said: "I don't see how; as a nmtler of prto$c«r sense, ja~ government running behind ?2,000,000,000 annually can consider 1 the anticipation of bonus paymentj>:unti! it has a balanced biul- gefv riot" only on paper but with a surplus of cash in the treasury." ; ,. Presumably Mr. Roosevelt's promised • statement' of his bonus nttitude will • reflect the same eminently sensible point of view. Toll of the Third Degree An unexpected flare-back i'l'om a case of police brutality came in au Ohio .city recently.. One Francis Bush, paroled from prison after serving a few years on a charge of robbery, attempted a holdup, with a pn.1; his pal was killed, a policeman was shot ai'id three innocent bystanders were seriously wounded in the gun battle that followed. The precious Mn Bush, obviously, got a parole he didn't deserve. And . why'did he get it? Well, largely because the prosecutor who sent him up recommended it; and the prosecutor recommended it because Bush, when first arrested several years . ago, had been given by the police what the prosecutor called the most vicious bit of third-degree torture ever administered, ; Because of that torture, Bush got a parole he wouldn't have got other- Wise. Because of that parole there was a gun battle on the city streets aiid four innocent people were shot. ' What was-the value to the community of that particular bit of police brutality? The Ignominy of Flight The .spjectacle § of rich Americans finding asylum abroad when the atmosphere at home gets overheated has never been a really pleasant one. JYe. got several example? of it during the turmoil following, the Teapot Dome exposure; and now Samuel Jnsull has treated us to one more. Insull's flight across Europe from Paris to Athens will hardly be the soil of thing to arouse sympathy for him on this side of thu water. \Vlicn his great financial empire crashed (here i--* no doubt that Ihc nation's frame of mind was, on the whole, sympathetic toward him. Later, when the grand jury acted, people were still willing to suspend judgment and give him that benefit of the doubt to which every accused man, is entitled. Bui ,1m scramble to get out of the reach of extradition treaties has not helped his cause. SIDE GLANCES ,, Merchants Pay for Water By George Clark when Buying Butter Whistling of Engines Becomes •a,'Nuisance For the past six or seven years residents of this city as v;cll as residents of all parts of this county traversed by the Frisco railroad have been compelled to submit to a most abominable •nuisance. We refer, to llic car spiiuir.j blasts from railroad locomotlvos passing through tills county. 1 At all hours of the day and mghl trains whistle almost continuously while passing through this county and this is doubt a form of pctl^ spite Indulged in by the engineers in charge of ill'- 1 linins In ivtaliulion for a suit filed against Ihc company a few years.ago because of the alleged failure of an engineer to sound his whistle before reaching a crossing just north oi Osc-eola. This suit was Immediately dismissed but engineers were crlllcisVd by the superintendent \vho directed them to comply with the law and sound, the whistle when approaching a 'crossing.- ' Some of the engineers took oirense and a kind of gentlemen's agreement was made by several of them that (hey would cause as much noise ns possible while passing through this county. Since that ilmu people have been 'annoyed by the shrill blasts of locomotive whistles even when passing crossings where a watchman is on guard. Frequently during «• term of court, both here , and at BlythevUle, proceedings are interrupted by the shrill blasts' of locomotives. People who 'nrc ill, perhaps desperately ill, are- shocked and startled by this exhibition of 111 nature that has persisted- for several years. Enough of anything is enough. For a time people only, shrugged .and grinned at the very evident purpose In . blowing those whistles. Now, that there Is rio' indication that these engineers will ever forgive or forget the - "jacl;- Ing up" they received for iiot wln'slUng at. all at some crossings, ll. might be well to take (he public into consider it I on. The railroads need nil the friends they can make and it is milking ho friend 1 ; -for the Frisco company "for any engineer to" deliberately make a niilsnnce of himself and Incidentally of his company. ' •(,'.. It is to be hoped that Hie proper officials will advise all engineers to.use their whistles as the law intended them (o-. be used. As a protection to the railroad coinJpa'ny and to the public, and not for the purpose of deliberately annoying ]>eoplc. •' •, i—Osceola Times,' i KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UP) — I Duller, without the moisture properly removed, coil mid-western merchants approximately $2,000,030 in 1029, according to Dr. J. O. Clark, Chicago, chief of the cen- tra! division of the federal food and drug administration. "Merchants paid for 5,000,000 pounds of butter but, in reality, iccelved only 500,000 pounds." Dr. '''i:k said. "The rest was water. The butter averaged from 30 to 00 cents a pound." • Dr. Clark said the condition was being remedied through closer federal and ttatc Inspection.

Peter poims out that most children at birth arc far-sighted. Moreover, the eyes uf the child at birth nrc not per fectly co-ordinated or capable of vorklng together. After six or eight weeks . the eyes begin to work harmontouily and. by the end of Ihc first 'year u most children the tvvo eyes travel together. Each eye sees singly, but the images blend together. In s'oirei lorms of squint'or cross-eye fsci- srilifically called strabismus) t';cy appear to blend lii two images The child therefore visions the image with one eye or lhi> other, cbcosiiis the. one it is goluy to use. Either" eye may turn iu. and to most pecple It seems that buLh eyes turn in. * * * In the most common types the.v j is some power to fuse images, but far-sightedness iu one eye interferes with such fusion, if function is not strong, the \\t-\~f. eye lends to turn in, but there is a double image. It is obvious that the correction of this condition by the proper glasses is a grcnt help iu !c':,s"!u- livf. the effect ct function and m aiding the development of proper vision. When a child squints or has cross-eyes, tire first step is in have the vision tested by a competent specialist, who will exa::iiiu- the I eyes under the best postiblc con|ditions: namely, usitii; proper drops in the eye to er.nb'e ;-ccu- r.te measurement, ff gl;isv.- are icccfsary they will be pic.-uluod. and thus straining of (ho vision the weak eye will be prevented. Dr. Peter is v convinced that children v;!ll tolerate glasses at the age of 15 months, ant! in nauy instances the early use cf these glasses Is an exceedingly mpdrtant measure. In some cases. o]x!talb:i liiay be necessary to help muscles that have become weakened. Proper; [ilacemeut of the muscles tends to bring the eye back into parallelism and to permit, proper functioning of the images. There is no reason why anyone should feel hopeless about cross- eyes'. There "are so many things that, can be done by those who are ccnipoicnt, when parents and teachers arc willing to co-Dpenlc. that almost every child may : look forward hopefully to improvement in this condition.

CHURCH EXCUSES BY GEORGE W. BAKIIAM ' Gcd in offering his Son, J'csus, to.the world as a Savior said, "He is my Son and in Him I am well pleased, hear ye Him."
