Bill I lie Republican majorities, ranging frOm about' 5,000 in the senatoiial race to about dO.OOO in the n\eo for governor, arc. nothing to get excited about. They don't compare with the vote- Republican candi- • dales used 'to roll up in Maine in the good old prc-depiession days. Maine's September election is supposed to be a sort of political bnro- ,-, 'metci-. F-xpcricnce has shown Dial it f is not a very reliable one. Maine is a first class indicator ot Republican national victories but not so good when it comes to forecasting •Democratic victories. Nevertheless it seems safe to say that yesterday's vole may be accepted as confirming tho general opinion that the Democrats arc not going to roll up any such ovei whelming victory in November as that which Ihc Roosevelt ticket \\on four years • ago. • • The New Deal has lost political 1 • strength, as its friends might, as well realize, but there is nothing in the .Maine rcHuins on which to base an assumption that sentiment has chang- i ,ed suflicienlly to make. a> Republican i. _ victory in November, col-tain'Oi 1 even ,; probable.

They are not often wrong. i Windfall For ludy •> American consular aulhoiilics in Italy arc distributing some $lb',QOO,- 000 worth of soldier's bonus bonds to some 20,000 Italians these days. The recipients are men who, residing in America in 1917, entered the United States army. Since then they have gone badk to Italy. They are Italian subjects in every sense of tho word. They have no intention of ever returning to America. But—they are collecting their 816,000,000 slice of the American soldier's bonus, just the same. All this is rather interesting, in view of -Mussolini's frequent claims that Italian citizenship follows Italians no matter to what part of the earth they may wander. Once an Italian, always an Italian—except that if some foreign government has a little hard cash lo distribute, 11 Duce will graciously permit his wandering subjects to take it. Wur-A "Dated Disease" We are accustomed to thinking of diseases as something organically sapping the mind and body, liut now comes Bronisilaw Malinowski, distinguished London anthropologist, who tells us that war, too, is disease—a "dated disease." War, says tlic scientist, is not the result of a natural human instinct, but something which has developed with civilisation. There was a time when men justilied. it as a form of tribal, policy. J!ut that can't bu so any more. "In my opinion," says Dr. Malinowski, "we have just loft, this stage of human history behind, and modern: warfare has become nothing but air unmitigated, dated disease of civilization." Thinking of il in that way brings a ratjior sickening sensation. Hut it's tho feeling whole nations must experience if war is ever to bo outlawed.

MOUIUS FISIIHEIN Kililor, .Tcuriul of the AihcricHii Mnlical Association.^ andi of U.vueia, the Ilisillli Mag.vilni; Among the greatest blcssltiijs of mankind are those drugs und preparations which either completely deprive n. liuinnn. b:lng of coiuciciisiicss or temporarily inhibit It so that he becomes Insensible to pain or to outside stimuli. The ruiCtcnt Arabs and Egyptians were familiar with dvu,:s Hint would produce sleep, or temporary unconsciousness. • : Only in modern centuries, •.lioiv- evcr,' have we been able to vclop a great number of *such drugs and -preparations, varying In strength from those which act for only, n few seconds and produce slight degrees of insensibility to those which may cause complete unconsciousness for long periods. * • * All such drugs are poisons if taken in large (uiantittes. They should, therefore, be used with utmost canlion, preferably never except on advice of a physician. In seme countries, druggists are not permitted to sell such preparations to anyone without a doctor's prescription. The family medicine chest is teller oft without preparations of tills nature. If, however, . they htue been prescribed by Ihe doe- tor for use according to his A\- rcctions, they should always be kept safely, to avoid any possibility ot error In their use. Among the oldest ot the sleep prcduccrs is opium and ils chief principle, morphine. These products now can be prescribed only by a dcclor licensed under the Harrison anti-narcotic law. The aiildesL of the opium preparations is one called codeine. Cocaine tcday is used chiefly in relation to products called local anesthetics which are injected under the skin or into the nerves (o stop the passing of sensation, Amcng the older sleep producers arc the bromides, now avail-1 able in many • forms. They are used chlelly to o.uict the spasms nnd convulsions associated with epilepsy, but the doses and the intervals of taking them must' always be regulated by Ihe doc-1 tor.

Tfic home port was Reno, in the pleasant yrccn valley of the Washoe river • — a veritable oasis in the midst of , the Nevada desei 1. But Kay was lonely there, terribly alone. J» Her early lessons in self-discipline served her well. She tried to organize her life around her job. During the day there was a four-hour ran to the Oakland Airport and a four-hour return. Sometimes, when the - shift changed, she spent the night on the bay. But in Reno, where most of her leisure hours were spent, she rented a little lumished apartment. i She did not meet Ted Graham, as she had so fondly hoped to do. She read about him in the newspapers and followed the routine of the trans-Pacific flight, day by day, eastbound, westbound. She knew Ted's approximate position every day of the week — Honolulu, Midway, Guam, Manila. But on the days when he was In port, at Ship Harbor, he usually went to his ranch in the San Carlos valley to rest. Between such rest periods he was away from Bromides used to be the chief! the home port for three weeks at medicines' « time. Kay h;v.l never been on I the bay when his ship came in. As the weeks passed she became increasingly absorbed in her work. She felt like a veteran now. At first sheTiad missed the bustling activity ot the Central Airport. At the fiying field in Reno there were not nearly as many planes coming and going and the local passenger traffic was not heavy. Kay usually drove out to the airport with the pilot who was taking the plane down to the Pacific. It was a long drive, leaving "The Biggest Little City in the World' paved fields that had been salvaged from the desert. In the distance were ingredients of patent sold for epilepsy. Today most patent, nmijpines sold for that purpose contain a derivative of barbituric acid called phenobarbilal. There arc many other derivatives of barbituric acid, varying in strength or toxicily and poisoning character, such as vcronal. trional ncmbutal, ipral and aaryial. There arc also combinations of these products with pvramuicm. as in such products as tpralidon, cibAlgine and similar prfpntnllons. A warning against the ri™ 5 erous character o[ pyrnmldou combinations should be repealed. » ' • * Narcotic preparations should ncVtr be used by anyone without a doctor's prescription, and no drug that has to lio administered with a hypodermic syringe -should find n place in Ihc average family medicine cliost. Seme diabetes patients luvc been tatijht by doctors lo inject themselves with Insulin. Even these persons should always keep their syringe outfits separate from the family medicine chest. behind and following .. highway through green the snow-capped peaks of the Sj- crra Nevada range. V fl 4 ^ fpHE westbound plane appeared first as a liny speck on the horizon. It always reminded Kay of her first trip by air through the vast spaces of the west. • But those vast spaces only increased hsr feelins o! loneliness Flowers of the "Dutchman's! pipe" catch pollen-laden insect J •ind refuse to release them nut:! the blossoms have beer. pollinaUtfl By Deck Morgan ©1936, NEA Service, Inc. (Posed by Mildred Shcilcy of UnitcU Alrllacs.) Kay traced Ted's flight on the map.

Kay needed the warmth of human sympathy. There were limes when she would fHng herself face down on her bed and lie there, very quiet, for hours at a time. One night she let the tears come, and sobbed out tliis feeling of loneliness ,ind desertion. Then she read in n newspaper Uiat Ted Graham's sln'p was due in San Francisco bay the next day. Again, deep in her heart, Key felt a kindling of hope. If she could only see him again! The two-room apartment, with ils chintz trimmings, seemed intolerably lonely. Kay got up, put on an evening frock, and flung a cloal: ows- her arm. Tlie night was cool, as were all nights at tins altitude. Her adventurous spirit \v,is stirring. She took a taxi and rode to Ihc Marlin Dude Ranch which slic knew was a rendezvous for mcm- l^.'S of the air corps, if there were any aviation figures in town, she would find them here. But, at first glance, K;iy fa w no one she knew. She sat'down at the roulette table and bought •some counters. She had no idea how the wheel operated, but she ivas game for anything tonight. She lost one stack of chips and bought another. She was placing a counter on tlia red marker when a hand caught her elbow and eased it gently back. "Piny 10 Veen," a voice said and (hen she heard a gay laugh. Kay turned and saw a man standing behind her, a handsome youth ot about 28. He had dark brown hair and blue eyes. He had also, Kay noted, had several cocktails. She did not recognize him, but his face was tanned with the leathery sort of tan by which one comes to recognize a man as an inveterate flyer. Perhaps she had met him somewhere. There was no denying, cither, that he had .1 gay, impudent smile that intrigued her! * * * CHE smiled, but played the red again and lost. Number 10 green won and the young man who was still standing behind her laughed. "Try 10 green again," he said, and she put her money on the red. When 10 "green won again she stood up to go, smilirg a littu. ruefully. "Oh, wait—please!" he begged. Then he shoved some money down on the table. "The lady plays number 10 green." Kay hesitated. There were so many people standing around, '•liking and playing that this encounter seemed quite harmless. And then the red won! "See?" the young man said. "You wouldn't take my advice when it was right. But if I were you, right now, I'd come have a drink at the bar with me." She s'liook her head", declining, and turned to move away. But the young man was not to be so easily discouraged. "Please don't go," he said. "It you won't have a drink, at least stay and talk to me. I'm Monte Elaine. I don't know who you are, but yon certainly have the most gorgeous hair I've ever seen—and the most beautiful eyes, hi that black eve ning dress you're—" Kay laughed. "You've had too many drinks," she said. He denied this. "I'm intoxicated with your beauty," he said. "Who are you anyhow? I want to know all about you — " _ "Just another girl," Kay tola*! him. "I haven't a name — or a,| telephone." "No cozy little nest?" he asked.] wrinkling his eyebrows. "No, I live in a castle with liomj guarding every gale." He said suddenly, "Don't youl like to do rash, impulsive things?! Don't you ever get up to look at] the sunrise and want to go flying out to meet it? I guess you know] now that I'm a flyer. Montol Blaine." ;r ••—•• "I've heard the name-tv/icc, but| I can't seem to recall it." "You haven't heard about! Monte Blaine and his eight non J slop speed records? I adore yoirJ he said. "Come on, let's dance'.'" Kay looked at him doubtfully! It was obvious that he had heenl drinking. "I don't think you canl dance," v shc said. I "Listen, I'm so steady they're! going to use me on the trans- 1 Pacific flight to test the gyro-l pilot!" ' "Oh—!" "Sure. I signed up last week ind I'm .on my way to Oakland! by plane. Stopped over in this! oasis to celebrate. You know who I my boss is going to be? Ted I Graham!" 1 4 4 JTAY laughed softly. "It's a- x smaller world than I thought. :] I've been working lor Overland i Airways." • , ; He said, "Really? T I thought f 1 you had that look in your eye—' f that far-away look. You're pne,'J of the air hostesses, aren't you?"-} , ||Right." M "Then we'll go out," he an- 1 nounced, "and paint the town red.' ] Here you are, marooned in the desert, and I'm going to rescue- you!" : ; Sh<i said, "You're one "of the' detsrl-may-care pilots." Monte got unsteadily, to his feet i and helped Kay into her cloak.-.'. They went out and got into a taxi ?| which whirled them out into the ' cool desert air. : Kay leaned hack in the scat, i Monte made a clumsy attcmiiTWo kiss her, but he was easy \>a evade. Th2 high altitude a»u! .. cocktails he had drunk didn't mix. Soon he slumped in the, seat at her side. "Where is; asked. your hotel?" she He in u r m u r o d dreamily, "Haven't got any. I live iindci- the stars. I'm all alone in the world. I'm an—eagle." Kay leaned forward and gave an address to the driver. Then she sat back and wailed until the taxi pulled up in front of her apartment house. With the driver's aid she^ot Monte \ip one flight o£ stairs imo her little apartment. He lay on the couch in the living room, sound asleep. She put covers over him, watched his face for a moment under the light, in repose he was little more than a handsome, swashbuckling boy. She turned out the light, then and tiptoed into the bedroom, locking the door behind her. Kay hailed, looking thoughtfully into the mirror. "It's us against the world," she thought, "—and he's going lo he working for Ted Graham." Again she remembered the light in Ted Graham's blue eyes and i wondered when and where sh might see him next. .(To Be Continued)
