TOO LATE WE learn what ailed us that-starry night )tt June 40 years ago on the back porch down at Lu Verne. Doc Logan Clendennlng, of Kansas City, syndicate Diet and Health writer, describes the disease and charts Its course In the Mason City Globe-Gazette-^ There Is no use arguing that love Is : not a form of sickness. Of course it is! The symptoms are anorexia, dyspnoea, tecliycardla, exophthalmos, wasting, and cerebral dlsorlentation. You Will find those words In any medical dictionary. They are well known to be signs of disease. And when you piit them all together If that doesn't make a disease, what does, for heaven's sake? If. you haven't a medical dictionary handy, anorexia means loss of appetite, dyspnoea means the breath comee In short gasps, techycardia means the heart pounds rapidly and heavily, exophthalmos means Staring eyes fixed on vacancy, and cerebral dlsorlentation means a total lack of appreciation of the realities of life—a disregard of the meaning of rent, of the cost of ifcan national delegates in Wisconsin, as the re- have seen that report in the papers gave their ports now indicate, it looks like some of the real radicals of the nation are beginning to back up •wi the claim that President Hoover is to blame <for everything that is bad in business affairs at time. No one with any sense is blaming Hoover for anuch of the trouble, but the sentiment against .•him is in the air just the same, and when people get wild they have to have their run into the stone wall before they get down to reason. Thats' the big trouble with conditions right now —instead of everybody getting his shoulder to the wheel and helping to bring about prosperity -everybody .seems to be knocking and vilifying the other fellow. The Algona Advance in a recent issue stated that the republican party must win or lose with Hoover. To this the Chronicle does not subscribe. We think the. party is bigger than any one man, even if that man happens to be presi- flent. There was prejudice against , President Taft, and his nomination was forced onto the ^iarty. We all know what happened—Taft car-Tied three lone and small states. There is prejudice against Hoover at this time, most of it, we -will admit, entirely unjustified. Charley Dawes could win in a walk if he was the republican aiominee, hut Hoover is going to be the nom- •inee, and the republican party is going to be sacrificed for the sake of Hoover, and in the contest Hoover himself will be sacrificed. That may be good politics the way the big boys look at it, but we think it would be better politics for Hoover to quit while the quitting is good, and •thereby save his friends and his party, if he Ttaows what party he belongs to. He was prominently considered as the democratic presidential candidate in 1920. food, clothes, and baby carriages. While the disease does not occur exclusively in the spring, its severest ravages are observed at that time. ItMs then that it is most likely to strike down the'flower of the land—the young, the strong, the beautiful. The cause of the affection differs in different cases. As a rule the cause is mystery to the outsider but perfectly plain to the victim. The The federal government now faces a deficit of I germ theory of origin has had to be discarded, more than two billions, greatest in world his-! The most plausible theory Is that the disease is •that the brain entirely dissolves and becomes gaseous and permeates all the tissues of the body. The latest psychological theory of the nature of love is that advanced by the current hot shot among the psychologists, Robert Briffault. Hd says that It Is reversed nutritional urge. Just like the appetite for food, except the victim wants not to eat, but to be eaten. He points ae proof to the female spider who in the act of love eats the male spider. So that peculiar look on MRS, FUNERAMfESTEROAY Funeral services for Mrs. M. M. Morrow, who died Saturday after a ong illness.'were 1ieW yesterday af* ternoon at 2:30 at the Methodist church, the Rev. C. V. Hulse In charge, and burial was made In Overview cemetery. . . Mrs. Morrow, who was Mary Bessie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John W. White, was born at Tamplcp, 111.) February 11, 1884, and wae past 48 at death. -When she was nine, ler mother died, and when she was 20 her father died. She attended the public schools at Rock Fails, 111., later at Rock Island, and in 1906, with two brothers, she moved lo Mt. Vernon, where she attended Cornell college. On June 26, 1912, she Wae married :o Merrill -M. Morrow, and two years ater they came to Kossuth, settling on a farm in Union township, north- ivest of Algona. In 1925 they moved to Algona, where Mr. Morrow-oper- bralns (if any) a rest while they debited Hoover with the exclusive blame for it. What fools we mortals be! Fortunately it Is not necessary to argue Governor Turner's cauee at length in this campaign. He will be renorninated and reelected by overwhelming majorities. The important thing is give him a lieutenant gWernor, senators, and representatives in sympathy with him. Are'the voters who want fairer taxation wise enough to do it? The drawings in today's paper showing how the Kossuth tax dollar is distributed deserve careful study. They show clearly that mere slashes in official salaries can amount to little in tax reduction? What : we need, in fact, Is not so much reduction In taxation as a radical realloca- tlon of the burden. And this Governor Turner will provide if the voters will give him the support he needs in the legislature. Opinions of the Editors Looks Like Dangerous Inflation. Albla Union-Republican—Unless there is a marked change, a two billion dollar raid is to be made on the treasury in additional soldier bonus payments. To obtain the ?2,400,000,000 necessary, a currency expansion plan is discussed. It his all of the earmarks of a disastrous inflation project. Wealth Must Stand Its Share. Knoxville Express—Whenever somebody proposes a tax on big incomes it makes somebody the face of the young man next door Is just a yearning to be made into a fricassee or a pousse cafe. These modern psychologists" say the darndest things! The disease ordinarily does not yield to palliative measures of treatment. Persuasion Is simply a waste of time. The only permanent cure known is marriage. Of course, that is like saying to a person with indigestion, "Tlie only thing is for you to go under the knife." It Is drastic, but it is final. Permanent cures.have also been reported by having the victim play three rubbers of 'bridge with the object of his desires. The lovelight fades during the first rubber, flickers during the second, and goes out -during the third. ... , else say it is an attempt to "soak the rich.' As a right or wrong proposition, as far as i We]]i taxatlon llas to . <soak ,: Hoover is personally concerned, the Chronicle believes that he is entitled to a renomination; but the mass of the republican voters who are going to help elect the democratic candidate dp not think so. Now, what is the thing to do— Now, what is the lose with Hoover or win with some other candidate? Business conditions will have to change an awful lot if Hoover is going to have even an even break. That's Hoover's only chance. When the Advance said that the republican party must win or lose with Hoover it meant what the Chronicle inferentially admits, namely, that the president is certain to be renominated. Any president can bring about renomination for a second term, as Taft's renomination showed. President Hoover is seeking renomination, and ••it is therefore merely academic to argue that someone else ought to be named. No other choice ,18 practically possible. As regards reelection the reference to President Taft is not germane. It is true that Taft carried but three states, but that was because was a strong third party, something not to recur this year. It was Roosevelt, not "Wilson, who held Taft down to only three states. 1 The situation as regards reelection of Hoover ie at this time admittedly unpromising, but it is not hopeless. The depression may begin to lift -*y fall, and in that event, as the Chronicle hints, •the president's chances will be much better. -There is, too, a promising chance that the democrats will get into a bitter fight which will react -in Hoover's favor. Governor Roosevelt's nomin- * mtion will not necessarily' mean election. The -:Jndustrial east ts against him, and powerful interests in his own party will knife him if he is named. Besides, there ie a large and growing Reeling in influential circles that he is a political ^trimmer unworthy of the presidency. Up to September in 1896 Bryan seemed sure «t election. Then a reaction set in, and McKln- -4ey was elected. The times are hard now as -*hen; there is widespread republican revolt to*Jay as there was in that summer 36 years ago. But normally the republican party Is the' majority party. Tradition is strong. Many a voter in •either party who revolts in April recants in November. Even in the grave times of 1916 President Wilson won only because Hughes snubbed Johnson in California. There is still a chance ^Cor Hoover. Moreover, even if he were willing, 4t would be politically suicidal to confess failure by dropping him for someone else. The repub- Jican party MUST win or lose with Hoover. somebody in these piping days of public extravagance and big deficits, and it Is surely better to soak those who have rather than those who have. not. Or Wliy >~ot, Dlomc King GeorpeJ Bloomfield Republican— If the United States were the only country where depression prevails, there might be some excuse for blaming Hoover. But what makes the depression in England, Germany, the Argentine, Australia, and the rest of the countries? Something' to Get Along- Without. Humboldt Independent — There is a law providing that a few taxpayers can by petition force the board of education to maintain a kindergarten. It is a foolish law. This paper believes that a kindergarten is one of the least-needed departments of the schools. Brookhart May Yet Squeeze Through. Knoxville Journal — The multiplication of candidates furnishes no real assurance that the nomination of the republican candidate for U. S. senator will be thrown into the convention. Senator Brookhart has consistently held the votes of more than 35 per cent of the voters who take part in the primary election. The Voters Arc in a "Swat 'Em Mood." Northwood Anchor — The political "ins" are hiding it difficult to hold their jobs this year. City and school elections held so far this year ieem to demonstrate that the "outs" have the best of it. There is a mental attitude of "we vant a change." Many are dissatisfied with things in general. Not a few good and efficient men now in office will be defeated. DOES SO MANY .OPPONENTS SPELL DEFEAT FOB BROOKHAETl Discussing senatorial nominations, the Traer ^tar-Clipper says: Glenn C. Haynes, of good roads fame, has entered the race for United States senator, making eight republican candidates to date. six in opposition to the incumbent. The other Smith W. flBrookhart, are George Cosson; Vernon Lester JHaig, of Libertyville; Louis H. Cook, state board of assessment and review; of L. the E. SEikelberg, Waterloo; Henry Field, Shenandoah, *nd William Galloway, Waterloo. The indica- •Uona are that there will toe two more candidates — ex-Gov. Hammill and Howard Clark, the Des •Koines attorney who ran two years ago. This means, without much doubt, that the nomination -Will go to the republican state convention, as •With ten, or even eight, candidates no one could •carcely expect to poll 35 per cent of the votes In that event Brookhart -will undoubtedly lose out. Since the foregoing paragraph was written Galloway has withdrawn. Reports that Ham- anfll and Clark would enter the race remain un- trerlfied. Earlier in the campaign it was generally as- «umed that a divided opposition on the basis of candidacies then announced promised an easy -victory for Brookhart. Some editors etill hold ^to that view. When the list was enlarged by the addition of Cosson and Henry Field and it was Len Small Again for Governor in Illinois I XOTE THAT YOU are able to tell that the tomato is a vegetable rather than a fruit,' writes E.

Len Small, of Kankakee, has been nominated by the republicans of Illinois to nake the race again. He has served two terms of four years each, both administrations attract- ng nationwide attention because of the strife In Springfield which was almost contnuoue. Illinois probably never had a worse governor than this man who now is the choice of the republican party for a third term. Mr. Small had been state treasurer before he became governor. In a court trial it was proved conclusively that ,as treasurer he had lent state funds, had collected the Interest and had appropriated it to his own use. It was a sensational expose of the governor of a great state. Yet in the primary of Tueeday he ran scores of thousands of votes ahead of his closest rival. What humiliation for Omer N. Custer, Oscar Carlstrom, Edward J. Brundage and William H. Malone who opposed him! What humiliation for the decent element in the state of Illinois that such a man should be put up for the' governorship after his miserable eight years in Springfield! Len Small, however, built roads in Illinois, spent hundreds of millions of dollars on paving, and that meant the people everywhere could go places without plowing through mud. Illinois has a fine system of hard roads all over the state and that fact probably got votes for the former governor. One would have to lose one's faith in humanity almost altogether to suspect that the nomination of Len Small was a deliberate expression of opposition to the better element in the state. No doubt that had some effect on the outcome. Birds of a feather flock together. The hope in Illinois is now in the November election. Judge Henry Homer is the democratic nominee for governor. The state's good name will be saved if Judge Horner wins in the election, and needless to say, republcans in thousands are going to scratch ballots in Illinois in November. 'Len Small will be knifed by republican voters as he ought to be.. The man has no right to be governor. His administrations were notorious, as notorious as were those of hie comrade in politics, former Mayor "Big Bill" Thompson of Chicago. Because of what they had in Springfield with Gov. Emmerson serving as chief executive a majority of the people of Illinois, regardless of party lines, may refuse to put Len Small back in office for another term. Republicans who vote the Hoover ticket straight save for the support they give Judge Horner will be no less loyal to their party for casting honest ballots }n* an emergency of this kind.
