Cooley of Danville Is to oppose Joe Cannon In the primaries, the doctor to contend for the Republican nomination for member of congress. The reason assigned by Dr. Cooley Is that Joe Cannon "is no longer In touch with the younger element In the district.' Well, It IB a shock to some ot us to hear that assigned as reason. What have the younger fellows In the Danville district been up to that "Uncle Joe" Is not in touch with them?

Several months since Henry Ford o Detroit advertised double wages fo men tn his automobile factory. There was a rush of applicants for Jobs in the plant, and several thousand o these were taken on. Later It was found necessary to let many go, and then there came the story of a "quie ipei!" In the, plant's business. This story was helped along by a state ment a t t r i b u t e d to Henry Ford, to the e f f e c t that the t a r i f f had something to do with "business depression." Because of this statement Mr. Ford is to d i n e at the W h i t e House an evening t h l * week. But tho general manager of the Ford f a c t o r y is l e t t i n g us into some of the d e t a i l s of the story of wha happened. It seems the promise o d o u b l e waees caused a good man w o r t h l e s s w o r k m e n to rush to th Ford plar.t. These could not be used in the plant, as was discovered later t h e y were placed in other jobs and ·otiid not hold these. The genera manager says they didn't want to ivork; -ind some had done so little in t h e i r IH'es t h a t they didn't know how work. And so you will observe tha,t th prnmlse of double wages was not al t o g e t h e r h a p p y in Its results. Thar was no one else q u i t e as eager to gra' th*"** d o u b l e wages as a lot of fel intvo who c o u l d n ' t and wouldn't do : r e a l dav's work at anything. If Henry Ford had the thing to d over, tbe chances are he would man f to ETO at It in a different way. an u n k i n d ... If they u l l t y o f n n L h l n s r along that !. S t a r r forllnt It.

(Concluded From Yesterday.) "An unvarying- rule should be lo have all f r u i t s peeled so that the bacteria lodged on the f r u i t skin may be removed. Especially Is this necessary in the case of pears and peaches. Berries must be carefully washed. They should not be given to children under two years old. Children older than this may have stewed berries, as boiling kills the germs. If there is indication of summer complaint, all fresh fruits and vegetables should be denied the child for a few days. During this tlmn the milk should be scalded, and tne d r i n k i n g ; water should be boiled if this is in any w a y open to suspicion. " M a n y mothers dread the second s u m m e r for their children. But the second summer is not really any more c i t r l c a l or dangerous than the first.

Is not as vigilant as she should be in watching the diet, w i t h the result that the child is allowed to eat things that make it sick WHAT CHILDREN MAY EAT IN' SUMMER. "Milk, cereals, potatoes, rice, bread and b u t t e r are staple foods for children in s u m m e r as in winter. There should be no especial change In '.he c h a r a c t e r of the diet when the child goes from city to country, but the mother should f i n d out about the new milk s u p p l y , and she should see thai especial care is exercised over the ice box In whh-h it is kept. Milk drops should not be left to spoil in the ice box. Tainted meat or molding food must never be allowed in it. Flie-i must be kept away from the food These are the most rudimentary prln- I ciples of carefullness. "A glass of milk with every mea should be taken by all children up t say f i f t e e n years of. age. Where chl! dren do not like milk, It is nearly a! ways because the mothers themselvci do not like it. Thev make up a face when tastfng it or show their persons distaste for it in some other way. Thi influences children. They should b sducated to like milk. Wants to Gef City Water for His Flowers. the benefit that can be got from th subway that ha* been built. Mayo D l n n e c n subscribed to t h a t view. Of course t h e r e can be no doubt about ps.vlng Jasper street. We are surprised that anybody could have had a notion that the matter Is one to be argued. The bullrllng of that subway H t « cost that amounts away up Into the thousands of dollars settled the pavlnK question. The public and the railroads paid for the subway; of course the next thing Is for property owners to furnish a street that will rrmke It practical to use the subway.
