W. Chilton, able editor of the Ca- - li'iilliiM'sville Democrat-Argus, sheds a tear in his own behalf in Hie current issue of his paper. • He writes: "Once there was a Sappy Sort of Newspaper Editor who got tlie Notion in his Head that Laboring long and hard for his Particular Party and Bending every Effort for the Success of the Candidates in local, state and national elections for almost a Score ' of Years should Qualify him for a Small Bit of Recognition at the Pic Counter. So lie made his Wishes known and Learned within a short time that Smooth Politicians ami Material .Resources can beat a Flawless Record of Service all Hollow and that as an Applicator for Recognition he was a Dismal Mop." The occasion of this lamentation, it seems safe, to assume, was the recent rejection by the Pemiscot Cotmly Democratic organization of Mr. Chilton's bid for the Caruthcrsvillc postmastea 1 ship. We suppose he deserved the place, but we arc "sure, as he himself seems now to realize, -Hint he was a. sap to ask for it. The best tiling for any newspaper, editor to do is to stick to his editing-. And least,of all should lie risk impairment of his usefulness . in the job that is properly his by pul- '4> n B, himself under .obligation to tl\ose ,who_so job is politics./... -• , • .

Tull, Mrs. Bessie Stair anil numerous others associated with him m this year's Gootlfel- lows chili. The club has tloue a line piece of work each Christmas for years. This year, however, its activities were exceptionally well oi'Giiniml and its program was carried through with enthusiasm and thoroughness. More . than 350 families received well-filled Christmas baskets and the club still has a limited amount of money wilh which to meet some emergency'''de- mum! which may develop in the month* ahead. It was an excellent demonstration of how a community undertaking can OUT OUR WAY . be. put across successfully with tlic f. Vijrht- kind 'of- leadership.. and co-operation. Why America's , ftist Eressed Someone hns gone to the trouble of compiling a list of America's besl- ili'c,ssed women—-the best-dressed woman in public life, the best-dressed professional woman, the best-dressed' actress, and so on. It is a very fine list, and the women scjlqotcd are very fine women, but there is something sadly incomplete about it all. All the women on the list, if you noticed, arc women of means. They have the 'lime and tlie money to devote to costume; why shouldn't they be well dressed? What we'd like to see in a list with prize winners something like these: Sally Spifkins, best-dressed dime store sales girl, who manages to look neat and attractive on the $2 a' week that she is able, to lay aside ' for ' clothes; and Mary Jones, the housewife who keeps .trim and stylish, in spite of the fact that slip, cooks three meals a day, makes, a, flock of beds, looks after three small children, does a lot of washing and ironing and dusting, and has a very, skimpy budget to handle. There are a lot of women like Sally Spifkins and Mary Junes in .this world. It's time they got 'a little recognition for their pains. :WEDNESDAY, DECEMBUU 20, SIDE-GLANCES;] By Getirge Clark (Continued From Page 3).

Slie would he quite- well by the end ot Hie week, in fact, sho was so well on the llflh day aflor tlie accident that Iho nurse arranged to leave after dinner that evening. She had been called to an old patient wlio was ill. Dressed . hi a turquoise blue satin negligee, Ann was lying on a chutse longuo by Ibe window. She .liad been permitted to see a number of friends that afternoon. Sarab and Mac, Mlllicent.'Marcia Johnson, Merle Merriwoather, And now, Valeria. Slie liad collie in as Milliceni was leaving Slie bad said. "I'll only, stay a moment. I know long visits are taboo," "The nurso says Vm well. I'm | only being lazy now." "That's good. Too bad chose that brute lo ride." Valeria's voice seemed very friendly. Ami thanked her for tho flowers and then remembered that L'ctcr bad moved them, leaving only tlio pink roses lie bad Bent. Ann had been glucl to see them, go. She nlielit not get well so soon, looking at Valeria's roses. Valeria looked .cool, sweet and smiling. But:inside was turmoil. Tho story of .Peter Kendall's anxiety bad been brought lo lier. Milliceut had told Mrs. Kendall Gbo enjoyed seeing tier nollicr's discomfiture. And Mrs. voudall bad- told Valeria that I'eter bad acted like "a. crazy •onus tool'! when Ann had been brown from, tlio liorso. Valeria bad decided, "I must do something soon before she falls in ovc will( him." She was leaving now. Sho told Ann good by and .closed tlie dooi licliitid ho.r. wus relieved. It bad been ricked .it up. It was a check, and ho words and figures , leaped at icr, "Valeria lieuuett, ?2,000, Peter vemiaii." Valeria liaJ entered, tlie, room again, "Ami, did I—!" . " And then, aa !sbe saw the cheek n Ann's hand, she said in a low, embarrassed tone, "You mustn't mind Peter being generous with inc. Remember Peter am! I—" "I don't mind," Ann said steadily, interrupt ing. Something was dying in her. She felt drained of ill feeling, as though else would never mind all again. Valeria. was looking down at Ann's face which had turned from lelicate roso to white all lu a moment. "I are sensible, so 1 will talk plainly," she Bald. "You shouldn't blamq' Peter anil mo for feeling as we do about each other. Uomcmber, we've cared.Tor years." Aun was staring at the other girl, fasciiialcd, watching the hard light leaping up in her eyes, the sulky, small mouth parting to reveal sharp while teeth. Sho liad never noticed bcfpr'o. how cruel Valeria's teeth were. 'You're doing Peter justice," Valeria said. "Of course ho wauls to be fair, Ann. even though his grandfather Is going to cut him off because of you." Ann' was wldo awake; now, breathing quickly. "It's not..true!" "Of course it's true. I should think you'd hate to mess up .Peter's Hfo like tills. Why don't you ask for a settlement and go away?" "1 don't want a.settlement." "Don't tell mo you waut Peter?" Valeria's lips curled. "Girls like you start out deliberately .to trap a man into marriage and thea conveniently fall in lovb afterward." "Please go," Ann whispered. Tlio door closed, .behind .Valeria. Ann stared at the door a long time, her eyes dull aud expressionless, travel lug. over the satiny surface. Valeria was wrong. . Ann didn't want Peter. Not now. Not ever. Peter, who wanted Valeria, wiio was having !»n affair with Valeria, giving her checks. I TTMtfj nurse came m a few minutes you | ln 'er ami found Ann lying back quietly, her eyes closed.

Several limes Uial evening 1'elcr looked in on Ann but her cyca were closed. Finally lio opened tlic door of Ills room and the door to Aim's and went to bed.

There could be no oilier explanation, no oilier reason for her iligbl, "I: could not possibly .bear it." The phrase was searing his brain. Wave after wave ot agony [ioured over him.
