The Peonage Jiujitiry Thi! federal grand jury nl UUlc Rbckj'.seeking evidence to substantiate ellarifcs tli»l peonage is practiced on the cotton 'farms' of eastern Arkansas, found nothing cxcejrt one case of n'p- linrcnt abuse of tlin convict leasing system by a small town polkcmnn, who scums to have supplied himself 'with men for clearing a piece of ne\y ground by arresliug' tinoU'emling ne- 1 gro'cs on li'unuicti up chitrjces and having them leased to him to work out their fines. If the 'charge brought against this individual is moved Jrue, public opinion iu! his own community will back ii]) whatever penalty may be imposed upon him. Maybe the Incident will serve the additional good purpose of awakening Home of Our neighboring counties, as Mississippi county was awakened some six yearn ago, to the desirability: of doing away with the whole system of convict leasing. As to tlie fact that the grand jury and 1 special federal investigators assigned to the case, were able to lind no peonage in eastern Arkansas, that is pretty much beside the point ill any consideration of the farm tenant problem. Residents of Ibis section, familiar with conditions, would have Leon exceedingly surprised if any actual pconagu had been discovered. It doey not 'follow that tenants are never mistreated. There-are all kinds of landlords and all kinds of tenants. 'For reasons that''are not.hlird to nitdcr- stand, the worst of bolli classes are usually found together. Which is the more resiwnsible for- the bad situation which results it is hard to say. If there is any remedy for K at law we are in favor of applying it, but we are inclined to believe that the most certain cure lies in the filet that the man who mistreats and cheats his tenants soon finds himself able to get only the most shiftless and least honest of them. Too Many School Dislircts Ih a report Saturday of the fuul- ittgs of a WPA survey of local school units iir Arkansas, Crawford Greene, who directed the project, made public some facts which, while throwing light oil the nature of some of the difficulties affecting Arkansas schools, also reveal substantial progress toward 'their solution. Education in Arkansas is not prop- OUT OUR WAY brly organi/.ed. The WPA survey shows that as of July I, 1915(5, .there was 3,12;f school districts ill the stale, which plainly is too many. Mississippi county, with dl districts, has too many. Some of the districts in llic county are loo small to do a good job. Hut our .situation seems to be much better than in many counties. Madison county, in Hie Qxnrks, small both in population and in assessed valuation, has 108 districts^ and Washington county, with a population about half Hint of Mississippi county, has 120 districts. More Hum half the districts in the stale employ only one teacher and one district- maintains a school in which only three pupils are enrolled. A situation such as this is bad from two standpoints. H makes school cosls unnecessarily high ami it denies adequate educational opportunity to a large part of the stale's children. Whenever tlicrc is discussion of repeal of Ihe sales lax or of olher legislation which might curtail school revenues there is sure to be a prohonhcc- ment from Little Rock to the effect' lliat such action would most ccrlainly result in the closing of so and so many schools. The fact oi' course is that most of the schools that would be thus altccted are uneconomic units. Certainly' Ihe people of the communities they serve have a right to maintain such schools if they desire and are willing lo pay for inch- support. Bill they have no right to expect Ihe rest 01' the shies to continue lo subsidi/e them. If, as is contended .by bur stale school authorities, it is the duty of the stale at large to assure all of the children of the stale of good elementary schooling, then also it is the duly of the state lo insist tlnil such schooling be made available throiigh units Im-go chough to function' efficiently. \\'e have already gone a long way. There were 5, My school districts in Arknnsas in 1912 against 3,128 today, lint there is still room to do much.

"The little wife waiting with open arms!" she thought, as the giant flying ship settled clown In Ii:? harbor and taxied up to the landing. "Was old Santa Clans good to yon?" Ted said to Dickie. "Sorry I didn't make it home wi'.li my presents in time foe the tree, but I've got thein in my duffle bag. "And what do you want?" he said to Kay. She looked up at him. "You always seem to know just what pleases me, Ted," she said quietly. "But nothing special? Nothing in jade to match those gorgeous eyes!" "Oh, Ted, don't tease!' 1 ' she said. "Of course I'm dying to see wh'al you brought." : He took a box from his pocket Rmi opened it, disclosing the loveliest jade bracelet she had evei teen. "Oh, U*s.beautiful!" She stood un on her toes and kissed him. But they were both -strangely quiet during the drive hack to the house built on Ihe sands. Ted sensed that something had come between them. He said, "Darling, you're no' worried about anything?" "No." "Did I miss a big Christmas dinner? Wham, did you invite?" "Doris and her crowd. And, of course, Jerry." "I'm glad you asked Jcvry," Ted said. "We hadn't missed a Christmas dinner together for almost 20 years." [TAY laughed. "That's what he kept telling us. I'm afraid he alked too much. He told what a ;ay dog you were in Paris in war- Ted smiled. "Good old Jerry." "People drifted in during the jvening," Kay said, "and then we vent to the Palace and danced un- il almost morning." Ted gave her a quick look 'We—?" "Monte Elaine and I and Doris aiid Ralph. We went to hear Hudley Nix sing. He has a grand or- •hestra." For a long while Ted was silent, and he. appeared to be thinking hard aUqut something, But when at last he turned to her he squeezed her hand. "I'm glad you iiad :i good time," he said. "After all, Christmas only comes once a year." But they did not mention the party again that day. Next morning, Kay heard from Doris that Ted had called Monte in and lec^ lured him. It was something, Doris explained elaborately, about Month's last trip as an apprentice pilot. Monte, overnight tn Honolulu, had done some celebrating and it had been reported to Ted. * » » EVERYBODY in the colony knew -^ that Ted had bawled Monte out, and everybody knew that Monte had been seen dancing with Ted's wife Christmas night. Quite naturally, they connected the two. Kay herself thought that ihi: was Ted's answer lo hor harmlesL escapade. She waited until Ted came home, tired and worried over some detail of his precious gyropilot. He had picked up a ! newspaper to read when she in- tcrruplcd. 'Ted," she said, "I heard about what you said to Monte Blaino todiiy. Everybody knows you jacked him up about something." He put down the newspaper and merely looked .at her. "Oh— Monte!" he said. Then he smiled. "'He needed it, the young devil. Monte is a little bit spoiled. I could hardly keep from laughing at the hurl-puppy look onhisfacc. Don't worry about that. We're still good friends, and—" "But thai isn't what people will say at the airport," she objected. "They'll say you (bawled-him out because he went dancing with Ted seemed actually surprised. "But—but I never thought about that! It's just that we can't tolerate—" "Tolerate!" Kay exclaimed : 'Montc goes out with a prelly girl in Honolulu io dance, and yoif can't tolerate it!" "That wasn't my Information,'! Ted said slowly. "Monte dis| obeyed rules." 'He's not a machine. He can'l on and on, like your airplanes) until he's used up and junked!" Ted eyed her. There was in hi look llic quiet resolution that shl had once admired so much. Ill said, quietly, "Kay, who know! men heller—you or I? Who kiiowl Hying qualities belter? I've sceJ aviation from its infancy. For fivl years we planned this trans-Pa| ciiic flight—scientifically." "Plan, plan, plan!" she said. "I'nJ sick of tlie word." » 4 « iD smiled indulgently, and il made Kay more furious. "Don'l look at me as (hough you weri indulging a silly little girl!" shl exclaimed. For the first time Ted looke, troubled. But he let her conlinuJ "This home," Kay went on/*'J just a place where you rest yovL weary head. The little wife, waitl ing in port with open arms.

Ted said, "yol don'l mean all that. You've kl some gossip pre'y on your, mind] You're hysterical—" "Look at me," she said, on thl verge of tears. "I married <i marf and now what have I become trained engineer! I wanted yol to he crazy about me. I tbougiif we'd have fun logelher. \Yo'rl human—not robots or gyropilot*!

Journal of the American MttUral Association, and of llysilu, the ircallli Magazine Whenever the skin Ls opened, lorn or punctured, the Injury s called .a wound. Wounds vary, therefore, from the kind of pnnc- lurc eauscd by the open end of a safety pin or by the point of n tllc to , severe'S .which i' r opai several Inches of . the skin and penetrate into the cavities ot the body. / I have already discussed first- aid measures for wounds in rrj- gard to bleeding. Immediately after the bleeding Is controlled, Ihe . fivst important stip is to prevent, infection. Be certain that ymir own hand's are as as pos;iu'.e. Surgeons wash tht'ir hands Ihcruiijhly \\llli soap and water, then >vith anil- sCpiiCi. aird. besiriri thht, wear rubbiv gloves whlc'i have been sterilized by stcnm under pressure. When you arc takiu- care o! any f.mall wound rc r j-:ivc;l around the home. Ihe-shop or office, bd cerlflln that yo\tr h?iuls are a 1 clean us possible. Wash them tlioromjhly with S0ii(i and water, and. if tr.orc is any alrjh'l handy, batlw then, in that, too. « • » Kvorylhlrw you put on wound must be sterilized; that is. free from germs. Hospitals prepare such materials in t'hclr own steam sterilizers, bul the best way for Ihe average man to get them is to buy them in a drm; store. Many manufacturers no;v prepare sterile packages of gauze, adhesive tape ami similar materials for use In first aid. If a dru3 store is not available, all the materials to be applied lo an open wound should be sterilized by boiling or by healing. A freshly laundered handkerchief or towel is likely to be slcrilc, b:causD washing, heating and ironing will kill germs. Frequently we read In the newspapers of thr. sudden death of some person who has simply scratched his hand or finger with a pin or who has had a sinull wound on the lip or on the Inside of tl\c nose. * • • Following a trivial Injury, such RS a penetrating wound from a sliver of wood or a pin, nail or piece of glaw. the Injured place becomes reddened, hot and painful. Sometimes red streaks appear miming up the arm or lei If the injury atlects the HI or tlie nose, there may be much swelling, pain and fever. In a short, time the patient, may have chilly sensations and within 21 hours bo seriously sick.
