It was short and easy tu read, and there was no mistaking its meaning. Its planks were things that the most huuled voter could digest; and one of the most clear and digestible was the following: "We oppose cancellation of the debts owing to'the-United States by foreign nations." It is rapidly becoming evident that that section, of the platform is going to be "tested 'pretty strenuously before the newly elected candidates even take office.'..' The: plank .is perfectly clear and straightforward: No one could possibly misunderstand what it says. At the same time, it is becoming a little bit; clearer every day that the war '( debts are not, any longer, collectible obligations. No longer is it a question whether or not'we shall be paid in full. It is . haid'y a^ nuestion, even, whether we' Oiall collect 10 cents on the dollar or 20 cents. The chief question now is whether ve shall accept the loss gracefully and take it as an inevitable part of the post-war readjustments which are still going on, or whether we shall have' fo have it rammed doNyn our throats. That being the case, .what happens to the Democratic platform plarik—trie statement,which', according to political theory,' will form the guiding sta'r for the policy-makers of tlie new administration? Much as one hates to admit it, it seenis very' probable that this plank ^ -will b'e gently but "thoroughly forgotten, ti will be, forgotten because there is nothing,else that can ba done with it. You can oppose cancellation of _a^ , debt with', your whole soul, but when you : simply haven't got a Chinaman's chance of collecting that debt you might just'as well lock your opposition up in a quiet room somewhere and let it starve. : . Tersene'ss aiid clearness in a political platform are desirable. But a straight-forward recognition of tlie political realities is' even better. —Bruce Catton. The Temfxstinthe Bamyata •A minor iwlitical problem, but an interesting' one nevertheless,- is that raised.by fonrier Secretary of the Navy • Josephus. Daniels, who urges that the. Democratic party drop the donkey as its emblem arid- return to the rooster. By tradition, the rooster is the official Democratic trade mark. . The donkey came into being because of the genius of Cartoonist Nast, half a century ago; and only the fact that Naat was such a tremendously able cartoonist made the donkey slick. As Mr. Daniels points out, however, "the rooster has ten times more beauty and style and clarion call than the donkey"; and he makes, very likely, a-far better emblem.- But will .the. party . return to him? Few voters now alive can remember back to 'the pre-donkcy age. It is probable that Mr. Daniels' campaign to retire the donkey will have hard sledding. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Fitting Laws to Count)) Conditions In-Clark county, the Quorum court unanimously adopted 'resolutions requesting the legislature to : impower;it to fix the price of feeding county prisoners, and thereby -:nd the arrangement under which this local outlay Is fixed by statute. ' -.' • ' , In Grceno county, however, on the same day, the quorum court reduced the jailer's fee lor feeding prisoners from $1 n day to 75 cents. And In Pulaskl county, a, quorum court committee recommended repeal of state laws fixing the number of deputies in each office, • and suggested the enactment of a county classification law to make It possible to have uniform 'systems of operation suited to the size and (ax- able resources of the counties assigned to the various groups. • ..It certainly seems ,that a county should be permitted to settle : Ior itself' such a. question a's the reasonable; cost' of keeping a prisoner In the county jail or 'ihe reasonable number of deputies required to-handle the work In one o' Us offices. Eul by means of special bills,enacted in the past, the legislature !n many instances assumed control of thesj and other local matters as compile ns Its control over its own em- . ployc personnel during a session. The counties should have more. power to ' handle public alTnirs supported by local- taxation according to the best judgment and majority will of their own peop'e. And In giving •(he counties control ol' such matters as the - number anfl 'pay of deputies or the cost of feeding prisoners, Arkansas ; mlglH » el1 B° fur " ther and'permit' the .-'counties, in accordance with their means anfi needs, to'combine or.dis- • pense with certain offices which'.constitutional provision now requires all of them 1 to maintain. - - —Arkansas Gazette.

MORRIS l-'ISHBEIN Editor, Journal ol the American Mtdkal Association, and of Hy- gela, the Health Ma(«ine < . When anything Is swallowed, action begins when the food that las teen chewed Is caught on tlie and pressed upwardi against the hard palate. This forces, the food backwards Into the throat. Rrom tha( time on the mass is beyond control. Contact of the food with the bos? of the tongue and the back wall of trie throat stimulates certain nerves iwhich then cause the muscles to contract. As a result the soft palate Is pushed up,. tin pillars which guard the entrance to the throat' come together, the riosif'fcf shut off from the mouth, thus feeplng the food from passing upward into the nose, and down' It goeis^ At the same:time, also, ordinarily-,' the windpipe is closed so that the food cannot .get into the lungs, This closure is brought about by a combined action of the tongue and/ a drawing upward and forward ofr the larynx or that part of the windpipe which is concerned with speech. •> .* ' « Obviously, there are many factors involved In swallowing, all of the parts combining together. Once the food starts to move, the action is so rapid that it can hardly be seen with the eye in X-ray pictures but has to' be followed motion pictures. ' Fluids go down much more rap- Idly than solid food. Liruiids reach the-stomach in from one to two seconds, whereas solid foods may require' seven to eight seconds: If any one of the factors involved In the swallowing mechanism Is disturbed, the iwliolc process may b/> disturbed. In paralysis of the tongue, which means paralysis of the muscles involved, swallowing Is disturbed and also speech. In case-the whole tongue is 'paralyzed it shrinks and lies at the bottom of the mouth covered wilh saliva. Such complete paralysis, however, is quite rare. In most cases only ona portion of the tongue is Involved. If both parts of the longnc are paralyzed speech is usually unintelligible. 11, however, only or.c- half of the tongue Is paralyzed | tpecch may be fairly good, but certain sounds, particularly L. S. ,E1 nnd W, do not come out sat^j- factorily. • • • In certain dlscares the nrrv?s affecting the palate "re involved so that there is paralysis of the palnto and ol the pharynx. This occurs particularly in some forms of infanlib paralysis and diphtheritic paralysis. In such cases swallowing may be so difficult th-U it, b«:orccs necessary to feed the patient through the nose. Sometimes the parAlysis Is so severe that there Is Interference also with vomiting. Tills is most un- fortunato because food under such circumstances tends lo get into the windpipe and lo produce coush- ing or it may actually Kd down Into the lungs and give rise to pneumonia. If an X-ray examination bhow that particles of material, made opaque lo 'th? X-ray, are gelling Into the windpipe n»d Jun»s prompt action must be taken prevent this complication.
