Our Courts There have b?eu ninny favorable comments by members of tho bar, jurors,, find others who had occasion to ba in court last week, on Hie energy ami good sense displayed by our now circuit judge, Neill Killough, ul hia livst term of court in Blytheville. The vigor which Judge KilloiiRh is displaying in attacking the job thai confronts him here is very, much to his credit, and affords room for self-congratulation upon the part of those cili- zens of this county and the entire district who elevated him to his present position. It will be none-thc-lcss interesting, however, to take careful note of the condition of the criminal docket after Judge Killough completes his two- weeks term. It will be a pleasant surprise, indeed, if two weeks even of the able effort which he is putting forth result in any substantial reduction in the volume of business thai must be carried forward to a la tar term. 1 The last session of the legislature w'as.asked to relieve the crowded condition/of .Mississippi county's courts by dividing the present second judicial district and providing a new judge to serve this county alone. The effort was defeated principally, it appears, because persons of influence in other counties of- the district, where the situation is not sirious, put selfish motives ahead ol the. needs of the .people of Mississippi countyr'perhaps in most cases because of failure to appreciate just how bad the situation here had become. While we are not informed that Judge. Killough took any active part in preventing the establishment of the new district, he was quoted as of the opinion that it was not necessary. Two weeks on the local bench will perhaps give bjm a better insight into the obstacles that justice is up against in Mississippi county. The Brothers Verdict Ths joy which friends of law and order and civic decency in Chicago are said to feel at the verdict in the case of Leo V. Brothers seems lo us to add just one mor-a bit of evidence of the low estate to which the processes of justice have fallen in the second city OUT OUR WAY ALU of ou) 1 country, and in a lot of other big and little cities as well. The joy at the conviction of Brothers which the right minded people of Chicago arc experiencing is based, of course, upon their belief Hint in cold blood, as a hired assassin, in broad daylight, uiul .pn one of Chicago's busy > downtown thoroughfares, lm shot down and killed a citizen of the city. A jury, after some 27 hours deliberation, found him guilty of that crime, which may be a remarkable thing even in the face of llui fact that numerous witnesses testified that Brothers was the man who fired the shot. Even more remarkable, it seems to us, however, and certainly affording Ifss cause for rejoicing, are the facts thai ihc jury assessed this murderer with a sentence of only M years, and that the courtroom crowd, presumably representative of the rank and file of cilixens, instead of sharing the joy of th-.' best minds nt the conviction, broke into a disorderly demonstration of sympathy with Hro- Ihcr.s when the verdict of guilty was announced. If there is cause for civic rejoicing when a hind murderer is given as much as .1<1 years for his crime it is no wonder that law and order in Chicago—and not alone in Chicago—have become a sham and a mockery. And if even such a verdict as that in the Brothers case must be a victory over the shallow sentimentality of the public, hope for improvement need not run high. Exiling Lao) Breakers , The action of Governor (Alfalfa Bill) Murray of Oklahoma in granting freedom to convicts on condition they leave tho state is not unlike ths decision of the Pennsylvania judge who ordered a man convicted of theft lo join the army in lieu of a jail sentence. In both instances there is a palpable dodging of responsibility and an obvious indifference as to the consequences. Tim army is no sanctuary for thieves nor do other states desire to play host to Oklahoma's bad men. These men should not be loosed in new environments until they have been first properly disciplined at the sources of their offenses. Governor Murray probably would not be slow to sign papers which would bring back lu Oklahoma a man who had. fled a crime committed there. Neither should lie be loo hasty to e.xile convicts. No greater menace to Hie peace of the-nation can be imagined if other slates or cities, particularly Chicago, should follow Oklahoma's example-. The c;ily ones who seem to take c.n interest in the "early to rise" mnxim, opines the office rage, are (he brcacimakors.

IIY KODNEY D(JTCiii:U NI]A Service Writer WASHINGTON, April G — Th Department of Labor estimated i awhile ago that there were 450,000 I aliens in the United States who had entered the country illegally and • that about one in four would be; found deportable if they were all j apprehended. That, would mean that one person in every 1200 of population could be deported. Of course, the one in 1200 becomes, for many reasons, very hard to flml. The proportion of potential dcportcss rounded up and sent av, ay each year incrra-es or diminishes with (he Intensity of the effort made by the immigration s"r\ice. Lately the effort has been mere vigorous. The I.abcr Department, however, made its estimate reluctantly and only uhen ordered to do so bv Con- Rirss. It is admitted that ihrrc Is jvery litlle basis even for conjecture, i cither ns to the number c[ illegal i entrants already here or tl:c nuni- | Ixr drlbblinj in cnch scar.

Acid is always being developed in the body, but it is excreted through the lungs and the kidneys, being carried to these places by tl:c blood. As long as the production of acid remains within normal limits as emphasised by Leonard Findlay, and as long as the organs necessary to the removal of the acid are healthy, the person does not suffer any disturbance. However, whenever the amount of acid produced is excessive or whenever tli" organs concerned will) Ihe removal aro diseased, the acid tends to accumulate. The body endeavors to avoid ihe accumulation of acid by various chemical changes, and ths tas!: sometimes becomes more than tin body can perform. There are some gastro-intestinal diseases in which acidosis develops both because of increased production and because the alkaline substances are lost through th? bowel. This happens when there is great loss of fluid from vomiting or diarrhea. The obvious treatment is to replace the less of fluid and to hinder the production of acid substance by giving water, salts and glucose. If these cannot be taken by mouth, the physician administers "(him by injection into the tissues or-into a vein. , Diabeles Is the main condition in which acidosis results. In this disease the patient is unable to use sugar so that fats are incompletely burned in the body and acid substances arc produced. These acH substances accumulate, and the body must develop alkaline substances to ueulralize them. In connection with the larger flow of urine in diabetes thera a tendency to wash alkali out of the bsdy. For this reason it is culomary in diabetes, conditions, to control the acid con- dition by the giving of blcarboiial of soda and by supplying glucoJ Acidosis also occurs In some dW cases of the kidney ,but it is n«vi| so severe In such conditions . when it is associated with dinbete There are some physicians v believe that mild conditions acidosis may be responsible for _. sorts of symptoms, such as head ache, nausea, lack of "psp," similar vague disturbances' TrJ control of such conditions Is oil viously much more simple than il the severe acidosis that occurs il the diseases that have been meiil tloned.
