COUPLE "ARRESTED IN GREENWOOD r;oi.\; TO BBAT HIM Those who have followed the branch nf athletics that has to do with swimming must have been pleased w i t h the «torv that came from San Francisco Saturday night. It told the fitoiy of a swimming meet of three days held in that town. The encouraging thlnK was ,h. showlrg made in this, by Chicago psopde. members of the Illinois Athletic club. More than two vears, ago there came, to ttrtB country from Hawaii a. swimmer of the name of Kananamokn. He ^ entered contest* on the Pacific coast, I In Cnioago and In the east. He was altogether better than anv American swimmers he happened onto. He attended a meet in Chicago at that time and there m a d e the best] =,wlmmWF Illinois couM produce look -Idioulons. He was able to swim away ·rom the best of our people--plainly hev were not In th» same class with litr . HP was able to heat them twen- , y - f i \ c vards in a hupdr.'d. Well, swimmers of the Illinois Ath. 'etic club didn't cive u p the contest They were hadlv beaten at th-it time, '..it they arsued that If the Hawaiian . o'lld do (he t t i i n they should be able ro learn it And right then the club s-tirteci in to eo after that Hawaiian. Thty haven't got him yet, but they .ire neck and ne.-k with him at the 'ini=h. P a t u r d a v the Hawaiian was .thle to beat one Chicago man bv no more t h a n an inrh in 220 yards, and he had to make a n»w record for the distance to save hi? Inch. It was the same way in other races of the three .lays' meet; the Hawaiian, had to let out the last stroke that was In him to no9 e out at th» front. Next year one or two Chicago swimmers will heat this Hawaiian; they are after him and they are going- to get him. It !p a story which shows what determination, perseverance and hard work will lo when backed by the bone, muscle and headwork of best American athlete*. MUCH BETTER.

The death list will be bigger when complete returns get in, say in two weekp f r o m now. But even then it will b» m u c h the best showing so far made.

Is at a loss to understand how the Finnish miner who startled Mayor Danowi ot Botte got some notions In big h«««l. This miner neems *o liavn be«n lull of a. doctrine that probably is not preached anywhere Ir the world. On» wonders If H I* ponslbl* ho could hav» heard It -preached tn I. W. W. circle*. There was a reporter In Butt* representing: a Michigan paper, one that i» sidlngr with the Federation of Miners. Lantala, the irate miner, wanted th« mayor to driv« this reporter out of town. The mayor answered that he do*» not have such power. Then La.n- ta5a assaulted and stabbed the mayor. Where in the world did this miner pick tip the notion that people can be flrlven out of town by a ma.yor? It would b* Interesting and possibly Instructive to learn -where and hov he got snch a. thing into his head. "W can't Imagine that Lantala brought that notion with him from Finland. It Is not improbable that mayors sometimes do high-banded acts in that country; but suraly they don't so to the extent of driving a m^r. out town ,1ust because somebody a=ke that it be done. It may be that lantala gathered his notion right in the town of Butte. That place Is pretty badly mixed and ha» been for a faw weeks. If one wishes to be surprised and shocked at K new doctrines, perhaps he can't do better than go to Butte and keep his ears (.pen for a short while. And there are people who seem to be making the mlstaJte of imagining that all this is part and parcel of the "new freedom."

If mothers would exercise more careful supervision over what their children eat in summer and would be more prompt in taking relief measures as soon as any slight digestive disturbance is apparent, summer illnesses of children would be much less a bugaboo than they now are. A distinguished physician who Is, a specialist in diseases of children gives this concrete advice as the result of his experience in an extensive practice, and lor the benefit of. mothers who may be taking their children into the (Jountry away from their family physicians, he gives some practical suggestions as to the things over which especial care should be exercised during hot weather. It is a. wise thing for every mother to consult the family physician lor advice, he says, before going to the country. When this Is not possible, he advises as follows; "Every mother going away should carry such simple preventive remedies as rhubarb and castor oil, paregoric witchhazei, flaxseed meal and collodion. I place the rhubarb and castor oil first as this Is a prime essential. Any druggist will put up a half and a half mixture. If the. child wakes In the night, and it becomes evident, that he has an attack of summer complaint don't wait until morning; give him a dose of rhubarb and castor oil at once, whether he is one j e a r old or five. In most cases the trouble will disappear. If it does not do so, consult a physician. "A rolled bandage will be indispensable when toes ire stubbed or hands scratched in the blackberry bushes. And there should be a bobbin of adhesive plaster carried. For cuts and scratches collodion may be applied. "Many motheis do not realize that a child needs to become acclimated to any new locality before changes are made in Us clothing. If the child begs to be allowed to go out barefooted anc wade through the grass the v e r y f l r s i morning, do not let him do it. Wai tw or three days before allowing th« stockings to be removed. There B 4 great difference between city and couni try life, and the child cannot b« e*i pected to fly from one to the;oth*-P without harm. Wise precaution prevent* colds. The child may be allowed to B* bathing the first day, Vut should itaf, in the water for only a few minutes "Summer colds do na usually lt« come serious. The tiiSt treatment should be prompt. Give |he child a.hot bath and put him to bed/Also glveliim a dose of rhubarb and tailor oil. I*t if any fever shows, the ifext morning, send for a doctor ag thsl may Indlcat* pneumonia or severe hr-nchUis.
