Term Opens Wednesday September 15 I In A SERIOUS QUESTION Does anybody know the difference between the Republican and Democratic parties is theso days f There was once a time when the two parties stood for great and opposing principles Every man could tell easily enough to which he belonged and on every important question could vote for measures or men which came up to the standardsof the party Members of the parties believed in their principles and fought for them The line between the two was distinct But nowWell Bryan says Roosevelt is n Democrat Bailey says Bryan is n Populist Roosevelt says Bailey is n grafter In the Senate seven Democratic senators have announced that they do not consider themselves bound by the Denver platformtwo or three Republicans have said the same about the platform they ran on And to cap the climax we have two Republican senators who owe their seats to Democrats The first was Bradley of Kentucky and and the second is Bill Lorimer of Illinois who to get his seat has thwarted the will of the party expressed at the polls and has entered into a deal whereby he has been elected the a majority of his own party in the legislature voted against him on the final ballot There has been no trade which will result in needed legislation for the statethe Democrats 53 of themvoted for him for personal reasons It is this Illinois performance of electing the wrong man with votes from both parties which gives the clue to what is happening in this country It has happened more than once and in each case there have been hints that there were more votes in reserve if needed A similar thing happens right along in the Senate where there are always enough Democratic votes to put thru n Republican measure in case some Republicans refuse to vote against their consciences And there are always just enough Never any wasted Somebody that can manage things you see is able to swing enough votes regardless of party to put in certain men There in some one bigger than the party or either party or both parties The jiwaysunderare not for the benefit of tho people but of certain interests Of course the men work for whomever it was elected themso it is evident that they know that they owe there success to the interests And the interests get what they want of corrupt legislation or excessive duties in the holy name of protection or weak laws that deny tho rights of the poor voter or any one of the thousand ways in which the rich are oppressing the poor in this country So we see that the interests manage to get the laws they want by owning the men that make the laws They do not care which partysells them what they want they work with both and when they need it throw both in togelher to get the needed power The party ling breaks down when the plan of the interests require ittho never when the welfare of the people demands it Party is sacredtill it comes time to betray the people Party is sacred to the voters but some way not to the legislators There is just one more step to show where this power of the interests and their hired bosses comes from And yet we all know corruption The interests have money to help coudidates get elected and there are in many communities enough voters who can be bought so that these candidates with the interests II moneycan buy the offices which are supposed to be the gift of the people No wonder these candidates do not feel that they have to care for the peoples interests They know that the people have given thorn nothing they have bought their offices and they work these offices for the benefit of the men who helped buy them So after all such performances as that in Illinois come back to the corrupt voters Have you any such votes in your precinct gentle reader If you have think this overHave your interests already been sold out by men who have been elected in your community and if not are you going to wait till they are sold out before you do anything to safeguard them f And have you ever done anything to see that your community has honest officers elected by an honest vote WATCH Watfh next week for our Special Commencement Number There will be a number of articles of interest to all who have ever been in Berea along with some good pictures 0 h j IN WASHINGTON Senate Debate a Mask to Blind Peo pie to Deals It Covers Aldrlch Winning by Clever Manipulation Bailey Acts the Bully Bradleys Fine Speech Washington D C May 29 1900 The worst feature of this long drawnout tariff speechifying is that the general public has no Idea of how matters are really going since the actual work Is being done quiet ly In private conversations and by political deals concealed behind the noisy but useless public debates When the bill was first read by the Senate redding clerk paragraph by paragraph Senator Aldrich made a note of each objection on the part of any Senator to any paragraph Thus he secured a list of the discontented Senators and found out just what it was which displeased each of them Then he allowed the Senate to amuse itself with oratory while he set to work unobtrusively to fix as many disgruntled Senators as is necessary in order to pass the bill In all the six weeks of talk on the Senate floor there has not bene a single Important action taken This week the sugar schedule has seen the subject of the Senate orators The Finance Committee gained tour days of valuable time In which to pursue Its secret bargainings dur- Ing the first of the week when the heated agitators had worked off all the Irritation and used all the am munition for speeches which they had Senator Aldrich let the matter come to a vote and his organization defeated the advocates of lower sugar duty overwhelmingly Senator Mc Enery of Loulsann a lifelong Democrat came out flatfooted In favor ot- a high tariff protection on sugar thus adding another to the list of Southern protectionists On Friday afternoon Senator Brad ley of Kentucky made an eloquent plea for his amendment to enable farmers to sell their tobacco without taxation His ability as a speaker attracted attention even la so hardened an nggrcgatln as the Senate and the earnestness of his appeal for the farmer secured much interest In his amendment Its fate however depends not only on oratory but on Sen Bradleys ability to make friends with the Senate gang which guides the destinies of Senate legis I lation If he can make concessions the machine needs and can offset the pressure brought to bear by the agents 08 the Tobacco Trust he may be able to succeed The statesmen here seem to think that his bill is good enough so far as It goes but that it would not hit the Trust parti cularly hard nor remedy the condition which brought on the night ridingFree lumber that favorite policy of Mr Roosevelt and Mr Taft went down to an Ignominious defeat early In the week seventeen of the Democrats lining up with the Republicans to raise the price of our lumberand increase the temptation to timber owners to cut and sell the forests which ought to be preserved for the future BAILEY A BULLY Senator Bailey of Texas jumped onto a little newspaper man in the Capitol corridor Friday afternoon for an article appearing In the New York Times accusing Bailey of selling out to Aldrich by directing the Democratic opposition Into the lines least annoying to the Republican organiz ation In order to prove that he had not done this Mr Bailey hit the little chap two or three blows In thee and then to clinch the argument started to throttle him Mr Manning put up a game fight but was saved only by the Interposition of Senator Clapp who got behind Mr Bailey and threw his arms around the Irate Texan This will discourage small newspaper correspondents from printing stuff about any statesman except those whom old age has In caplcated from fighting Or perhaps the newspaper men will begin to hunt in packs as waives hunt buffalo The endless talk Indulged In by the Senate without action has recalled here the memory of the days when the Senate labored and argil ed a whole winter about the Hepburn Law three years ago only to have the Supreme Court declare that the painfully prepared measure which the great Constitutional lawyers of the Senate finally worked out was neI- ther sensible nor Constitutional nor useful The Senate costs the country a lot ot money first and last and Judging from the amount of good It has done In the past decade we might better have blown In the cash In SUII Continued on fourth pages s 7- c IN OUR OWN STATE HasResigned0nQuit PlaceOpposition to Pro

will come out here or wherevCr I may be and have that I cigar you are refusing The colonel was frankly puzzled He couldnt quite focus his wits on this bravado which had nothing of the bravo about it in tact bad a tinge of wlstfalness in its quiet One would have said the man regretted his com pulsory attitude of antagonism that he wanted peace Mercer smiled faintly You ought to know by this time when a man is lying coloneL he continued but I will go further I may have done plenty of wrong things In my life some things maybe which the law might call a crime but I have never done anything which would debar me from passing my word of honor as a gentleman nor any ono else from taking It I give you my word of honor that I have meant and I do mean no slightest harm to Archie Winter and that while I do not know where he is at this speaking I believe you will find him safe under your aunts protection when you get back to the PalaceCall ojp the Palace hotel Mr Bird sail was the colonel reply Mr Mercer I do not distrust that you are speaking exactly but you know your Shakespeare and there are promises which keep their word to the ear but break it to tho sense- I dont wonder at your mistake but you are mistaken sub Blrdsall was phlegmatically ringing up Mrs Winter having the usual ex perience of the rash person who In trudes his paltry needs on the complex workings of a great

What say colonel Tell her to call up this number the colonel read it out of the tele phono bookwhen Master Archie does get back will youT I am afraid Mr Mercer that you will have to al low us to trespass on your hospitality for a little longer He suspected that Mercer was annoyed although he answered lightly enough HAs you please CoL Winter I am sure you will hear very soon Now there is another matter your machine I understand you left it out side Will you ring for Klto colonel Under the circumstances you may prefer to do your own ringing I will ask him to attend to the car The colonel made proper acknowl edgments He was thinking that had Mercer cared to confiscate the motor he would have done It without ring ing oil the other hand did he desirer ino special intercourse with his retainer wherein under their very noses be could Issue his orderswell possibly they might get a whiff of the secret themselves were he allowed to try At present the game baffled him Therefore be nodded to Blrdsalls aYtc Sub I Got Yeur Aunt Herself Responded Mercer puckered face behind Mercers shoul der And he rang the belL The Jap answered it with suspicious alacrity Klto said Mercer will you attend to Gen Winters cart Bring it up to the court Absolutely harmless to all appear ances but BlrdsalL from his safe posl lion behind master and man looked shrewd suspicion at tho soldier Shall your man in the hall go with him asked Mercer Tho colonel shook his head 000 he said quietly we have other men outside if he needs help Call Skid please But when Blrdsall attempted to get central there was no response Tho colonel merely shrugged his shoulders although Blrdsall frowned with vexation What a pity said Winter softly Sow the fellows will come when the time is up we cant call them off Mercer smiled faintly There are two more telephones In the house he observed You can call off your dogs easily any time you wish Also you can bear from the Palace Will you come upstairs with meT I assure you I have not the least Intention to harm you or the honest sergeant You take the first trick Mercer said the coloneL I supposed the bell was your signal to have the wires cut But about going no I think we will stay here There is a door out on the court which if you will openthank you A charming prospect Excuse me if I send Haley out there and may I go mY6eUr Anticipating the answer he stepped under the low mission lintel Into a fairylike Californian court or patio of pepper trees and palms and a moss grown fountain There was the usual colonnade with a stone seat running round the walL Mercer smiling motioned to one of themHI wish I could convince you colonel that you are In no need of that plaything In your hand and that you are going to dine with your boyIsnt he a fine fellow The colonel did not note either his admission that he had seen Archie nor a curious warming of his tone he had stiffened and grown rigid like a man who receives a blow which he will not admit Ho stole a glance at the detective and met an atrocious smirk of complacency They both had caught a glimpse of a figure flitting Into a door of the court They both had seen a womans profile and a hand holding a little steel tool which had ends like on alligators nose And both men had recognized Miss Smith CHAPTER IX The Agent of the FIreless Stove The time was two hours later Rupert Winter was sitting on one of the stone benches of the colonnade about the patio The court was suffused with the golden glow presaging sunset Warm afternoon shadows lay along the flags waving silhouettes of leafage or plant blurred reflections from the bold basreliefs of Spanish warriors and Spanish priests sculptured between tho spandrels of the arches v Winters dull eyes hardly noted them tho exotic luxuriance of foliage Ute Spanish armor and Spanish cowls were all too common to a denizen of a Spanish colony In the tropics to dis tract his thoughts from his own ugly problem He had been having it out with himself as he phrased it And there bad been moments during those two hours when hj had ground bis tooth and cloacbed his lists because of the futile and furious pain In him When ho recognized Janet Smith by that sasLo Illuminating flash he recognized that this woman who bad been tricking him was tho woman that he loved He believed that he had said his last word to love but love aft er seeming to accept the curt dismissal was lightly riding his hen again Fooled a second time h thought nllh Inexpressible bitterness recalling his unhappy married life and the pretty weak creature who had caused Him such humiliation Yet with her tfcrro had been no real wrong doing only absolute lack of discretion and a Childish craving for gayety and adnlaJon Poor child what a woe ful ending for it aU The baby the little boy who was their only living chill4to die of a sudden access of a apparently trifling attack of croup while the mother was dancing at a franjtichad given her a cold which her shock and grief left her no strength to re sist she was always a frail little crea turf poor butterfly and she followed her baby Inside of a month Had she lived her husband might have fount it hard to forgive her for already a sore heart was turning to the child for comfort but she was dead and he did not let hIs thoughts misuse her mem ory Nowhere was another so different but Just as false Then ho brought himself up with a Jerk he would be fair he would look at things M they were many a man had been fooled by the dummy lie would not Imp at conclusions because they wero cruel any more than be would because they were kind There was such a thing he knew well as credulous sus picion It did more barm than credu lous trust Meanwhile he bad his de tali He was to find Archie therefore So waited They were In the house It were only folly to give up their ad vantage under the stress of any of Mercers plausible lurings to the out side Moreover by degrees ho became convinced that Mercer certainly to some extent was sincere In his profession of belief In Archies absence and safety This In spite of hearing several times that Archie was not re turned Mercer did all tho speaking but ho allowed Blrdsall to bold the re ceiver and take the message from Mrs WinterThe telepnone was in an adjoining room but by shifting his position a number of times the colonel was able to catch a murmur of the conversa tldou Ho heard Mercers voice dls tinctly Ho bad turned away and was following the detective out of tba room I dont understand It any ILLUeJTRATIOlV JC1 PVCIJ I LvOPrieIGH7907 8JMERRILL CO iJr more than you do

I got to see the colonel I can trust my Intuitions or I can trust the circumstantial evidence thought the colonel Ho Jumped up and began to pace the court Seems to be like a game of bridge before ono

seed corn from places at a distance it is always best to se cure it In the ear because in this form it can bo picked over judged and all ears that are not suited for planting may be thrown aside while if It is shelled no such selection can be made The selection of seed corn by the farmer from his oWn crop Is generally accomplished In one of three ways First by picking out the seed after the corn has been cribbed second by selecting the best cars while gather lag and third by going into the field before harvesting time and selecting the most desirable ears Of these three ways my experience has shown tho last to bo the best because a better selection can be made when that is the only aim In view and when tho entire plant and not simply the ear can be considered Whatever the method more seed than Is really need ed should be selected in order that a second weeding out of the poor est ears just before planting may still leave enough good seed On our farm we have tried still another method for obtaining the best teed cornnamely to grow It in a special plot of ground We used the following method Take any number of selected ears say 50 for example and plant them In CO separate parallel rows one ear to the row This makes it necessary for the plot of ground to be at least 50 corn rows wide and It should be long enough for the planting of about twothirds of an ear in each row If possible this ground should be as far removed from other fields of corn as can be to prevent outside pollination To furthdr protect troth foreign pollen we have found it a good planto take tho re maining onethird of the selected corn and use it to plant a border around the breeding plot Before the pollen matures every alternate row Is detas seled to prevent self or close pol Una Two But Ears lion also any stalks In the rest of the rows that are imperfect to a marked degree In any way should be detas seledAll the seemingly good ears from good stalks In good position on the stalk should be gathered from the do tasseled rows Out ot all those ears first pick out the best ones for next years breeding plot From that remaining the best oars can be selected for next seasons seed corn for the main crop In regard to tho typo of ear to select for seed tho following points are essential The main object In view Is tho production of as largo n quantity of grain to the ear as possible the ear should be cylindrical in shape about ten Inches In length and 7 inches In circumference Both ends should be well filled out with largo kernels The rows of kernels as well as the kernels themselves should be closely pressed together In order that the ear will be compact and solid Each ear can be readily tested for weight by weighing the entire ear first and then the shelled corn ob tamed from It The grain should con statute from 85 to 9Q per cent of the whole can Tho kernels should be as nearly uniform in size as possible to Insure a good even stand they should be wedged shaped Tho Vitality of the corn should al ways ways be tested Improper dry ing and storing away of seed corn very often lowers the vitality of the seed but If it Is thoroughly cured and kept dry no Injury Is likely to take place We have found It a very antis factory method to string the corn and tie It up In the barn provided it is j woll covered In the spring before planting time every car should be tested especially when there is any doubt as to its vitality Wo have a box fixed for this purpose it Is four feet long by three feet wide by six Inches deep We have bored holes through the sides two Inches from the bottom and 2a inches apart through these holes we have stretched fine wire both lengthways and crossways flue dividing the box into 2lnch squares At one end these rows of squares are numbered along one side tho squares In each row are numbered When ready to test the corn we get enough moist rich dirt to fill the box up even with the wire next we number the ears to be tested For example the first ear Is marked ear one row one the next ear two row one When we have enough for the first row the first car in the second row is marked ear one row two and so on When the ears are all numbered take four or five grains from different parts of each ear and plant them in the square with the corresponding number In this box we can test about 275 ears atone time Of course the box can te larger or smaller as the case may dt mand MAKING MONEY RAISING SKUNKS How the Animals Are Bred and Why their Breeding Profitable Skunk farming Is becoming an Im portant Industry In some parts ot tho United States and yet the man who suggested It was regarded as mentally unsound Today there are hundreds of such farms on a paying basis The average skunk produces A quart of oil and the fur or skin always brings a good price fashion regu lilting the value At the present time the skins which are the most valuable are the darker ones A pure black skin Is worth from 15 to 260 according to the quality and size a striped skunk skin brings in tho market about 60 or 60 cents while those with a part stripe are worth in the neighborhood of a dollar It has been figured out that a man who understands skunk farming can begin on 20 skunks 15 females and five males and in a few years he can have a healthy bank account It is not dIfficult to calculate how rapidly these 20 skunks will Increase In num ber Say you begin work early In the fall and that in December they breed At once you have an increase of 120 skunks putting the average of each litter at eight In June they breed again and it the same ratio of In crease be kept up at the expiration ot a year and a half you will have 7495 skunks Put the pelts at one dollar each the pelts of 200 male skunks would bring 200 the oil at CO cents an ounce would be worth 800 Then figuring as was done on the increase In skunks at the expiration of a year and a half you could kill 3700 male skunks the pelts of which would be worth that many dollars The amount of oil gathered from this number would be 29600 ounces worth just 14800 At the expiration of four years you would have killed 1890000 males the pelts of which would be worth 1890000 and the oil 15120000 ounces worth 7660000 And you would still have 3700000 skunks leftl It is not surprising that skunk farming is being taken up throughout the country and If It was possible to deodorize tho skunk the Industry would be even more popular Dry Potatoes for Food According to the Magdoburgischo Zeltung Consul Frank S Hannah says that the recent experiments in the drying of potatoes under the auspices ot tho imperial in tenor department has had such good results that a new and important field of activity may be offered for tho Ger man farmers The potatoes are reduced by this process to about onequarter ot their original weight and can be kept In good condition in this compressed form for an indefinite length of time The military authorities have made thorough experiments with this prod uct and have become convinced that its nutritious value is fully equal to that ot corn and that the dried pota toes can take the place of onethird ot the former ration ur oats Farmers Families It

ChtcaroArMoody k Church Chlccco e What wo know about tho blood of Christ we learn from the Script tures It Is no- tlour purpose to ar gUo or speculate but simply to sit at tho feet of Revelation and listen to what God says Tho great question to bo an swered Is What rotation has tho Blood of Christ to our snit ationr God commend pIll Ills love toward us In that whileIwo wero yet sinners Christ us Much more then being now Jus titled by Ills Blood we shall be slledI from wrath through Him Rom 589 On tho merit of the blood a just God can declare that an unjust man is just bofora Him To explain how this Is done is not our purpose The How of nil things Is mysterious Wo cannot evcncxplaln how the food wo oat and the water we drink give redness to the blood and vitality In tho body how fire burns or grass grows Dut though wo do not understand tho method wo believe in the fact and rojolco In the experience RemissionThis my blood of tho New Testa ment which IB shod for many for tho remission of sins Matthew 2C2S If wo admit that Jesus Christ died for us God will transmit our sins to Him and Ills rlghteousnoM to us Ho bora our sins Jn Ills own body on the tree Without tho shedding of blood thora is no remission This Is the gospel that Peter preached to typo household of Corne Jive in Acts 1043 To Him give nil tbe prophets witness that through His name whosoever beilovoth In Him shall receive remission of sins CleansingThe of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin 1 Jobn 17 When Dengol UK author of tho Gnomen ono of the greatest scholars of his age was on his deathbed be sent for n student and asked him to giro studenIthat he did not know how to comfortI one so much more learned than hn Can you not think of a promise that will help me replied the distin guished scholar and tho student repeated The Blood of Jesus Christ Ills Son cloansoth us from all sin That Irt enough It In just what I needed and Bengal tho scholar died peaceful ly resting on the merit of the blood Sanctification Jesus also that Ho might sanctify tho people With His Own Blood suf fered without the camp Hebrow 13 12 Tim blood begins salvation through Justification and continue It through sanctification Like the sscarlet throat In the cordago of tho British navy It runs through the wholo of Christian experience Fellowship laving therefore brethren bold ness to enter Into tho holiest by tho Blood of Josus let us draw near In full assurance of faith Hob 101922 Sin means separation from God And there is no return to Him except byway of tho blood but when we are onco in that way we may be bold to enter into the secret place of the Most High RedemptionIn we have redemption Through Ills Blood tho forgiveness of sins according to the riches of Ills grace Ephcslana 17 The figure is taken from tho an clout custom of holding hostages and demanding a ransom Justice holds a sinner as a hostage until love shall pay tho ransom When Jesus taught us to pray Forgive us our debts He meant that the violation of Gods laws brings every sinner under obligation to pay tho penalty of his sin If another will pay It for him ho will not bo expected to pay It again but the debt must bo paid Now Jesus Christ gave Himself as- a ransom for many Through His blood we are bought and liberated Listen to the song of tho saints In glory as given us In Revelation 59 and you will hear the echo of this precious truth For Thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by Thy Blood out of every kindred and tongue and peo plo and nation An old herdsman of Dartmoor was taken with his little granddaughter to a hospital in London and when a phy slclan told him they could do no more for him bo said to his granddaughter Repeat some verses from the Bible She turned to the same Scripture The Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from nil sin Read It again ho asked and she read It Please put my finger upon It and trace the letors as you read it She took in her little hand the trembling fingers and traced the words The Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleans eth us from all sin And the old herdsman died peacefully resting in tho merit of the blood Salvation through the blood Is the need of the young and the old the ignorant and the learned the poor and the rich the moral and the immoral I The best employed people are those who devote their lives to doing

Splendid ContestFine Work Done by Bowman Thomson and OthersExcellent Prospects for State Victory In one of the most enjoyable Field Days ever held here ou a perfect day and with contests fought to the last Inch furnishing tine sport for time cruleatants and fine entertainment for the spectators the Vhlto Division of the Berea College students won from the Blues by a score of 106 to 51 Three new records were get for tho field and fine work was done by many men some of the records in dicating that if their makers had been ablo to go with the team to Lexington State University would have had to work even harder for Ito laurels Tlioro seems llttlo doubt that next year Berea will run State a very close race for the leadership o Kentucky Colleges In track and field athletics Tho best individual work of the day was done by D O Bowman and in fact his work was in many respects the best that has ever been done by a single man on the grounds here The North Carolinian won a total of 24 points Including six for setting a new record In tho shot put HI took two firsts two seconds and two thirds lu each case coming close up with the winners His points tco were won in all kinds of work except tho distance races and ho took honors in sprinting weight putting and jumping Next in number of points was Thomson 18 who set a record In the fifty yard dash and took another first and second In the sprints Third came Allen with 1C points won In the Jumps and weights and fourth was Lampe who sot a new record In tho hundred with 13 points Grlf ting the fifth man with eleven points showed great promise both in the hammer throw and tho hur dles Long did good work In the quar ter Garcia tho not well did credit ably In tho distances and the work of Tuthill and Luster Hill in Jump hog showed promise dt fine results under careful development- As always tho most interesting contests woro ir tho dashes The fitly hundred and twotwenty were alt won by a scratch Thomzon was only a ter 1 cheo ahead In the fif ty and In tho 220 ho won In the last two yards beating Lanpe by two Incites Garcia had things too much his own way in the distances and was not pushed Allen would have had a record for the shot put had not Bowman done even better and Allen would have won also In the Jumps if ho had worked in a little better form He lifted his body higher than tho others but had not learned to keep his feet out of the way- Altogether twenty men won points more or loss and about as many more competed without any success Somo of these last however showed promise and with better training and the keener Interest which will be aroused next year there Is a pretty good chance that almost every record will fall In the contest for places on the team that will go after tin state championship After the track contests a ball game was held In which tho Blues were beaten 103 Four of the Whites runs came In on a mixup at the plate In which tho Blue catcher was knocked over and lost the ball al lowing tho CUll bates to empty them selves to slow music Lampo had lifted out the ball that started the mess that brought in the runs but was entitled to only a scratch hit on It Tho scoring was mostly on errors on both sides and the umpire should be credited with at least two ot time White runs TLero was plenty of hitting which made the game interesting to watch and the crowd stayed till It was all over Altogether- the day was one of the most enjoy able of the year and reflected great credit on Bereas athletes The full summaries follow GO Yard Dash Thomson W Bowman W Long B Time 6 15

SUGAR AND ALCOHOL Sweets of All Kinds Allay Craving for Stimulants Supplying Energy For merly Given by Liquors The theory that sugar and a conservative amount of alcohol are Inter changeable as food elements Is not ale together a new one Dr J Leonard Corning the nerve and brain special lat when Interviewed said I think there Is little doubt that sugar can allay tho physical craving for alcohol I might say that in the chemistry of tho body sugar Is a compensation for alcohol I have a patient who was a heavy drlnkerfor years and who now having sworn ort takes strained honey at each meal particularly at breakfast lie finds that It quiets his craving for alcoholI another patient who cured himself of alcoholism by the use of Ico cream EVery tlmo ho felt the craving for alcohol ho would oat a dish of Ice cream After two weeku of this regimen he found that ho had lost tho craving for the old stimulant This treatment however was not prescribed by me Ho told mo that It had been suggested to him by n bartt r tender in one of the big Broadway hotels who had cured himself of the liquor habit by this ice cream treat ment and bad successfully prescribed it to other heavy drinkers As for the reason of this I would say that tugar being a highlyconcen trated food because dynamically available upon absorption Into the system and thus supplies the energy formerly given by the alcoholic stim ulant I doubt It this sugar euro should bo adopted by any alcoholic without consultation with a physician After the prolonged use of liquor the atom ach Is apt to bo In no state to as

Helmet Suitors quickly flocked about the girl and In time she selected from among thorn as her protector one Lecat known among his comrades as a clover thief and n bold lighter whom tho police would be glad to have behind the bars All went well for n time until there came on tho scone a moro attractive scoundrel named Manda Pretty fickle Golden Helmet promptly transferred her affections to tho newcomer and then tho trouble began Lecat tho forsaken t vowed vengeance on his successful rival and summoned his followers to his aid Manda also had no lack of friends and soon nil the thugs in the district of the Holies or markets had ranged themselves on ono side or tho other Many a bloody battle was fought In tho streets between tho two bandschecred onby their female friends nnd not a few men were slain In these conflicts Finally In one of tho fiercest of the encounters Lecat himself was killed nnd Golden Helmet shouted aloud in Joy lint her triumph was shortlived Another leader for Locals band known as Le Manchot sprang up and tho feud was continued with Increased fury One night Lo Manchot caught Manda off his guard nnd plunged n knife deep into his back and for weeks the stricken

tho police guard leaped Into tho vehicle and stabbed Mnn da to loath For this murder Le Manchot Is now serving a life sentence Golden Helmet made notorious by the succes lion of battles and crimes

Edward DunroyReed The general observance of June 14 as Flag Day suggests tho thought that Old Glory was mature at Its birth But its Infancy dates back to the earliest recorded American history At the time of tho birth of The Star Spangled Banner tradition and verified history had marked some 800 years since the advent of tho first European upon American soli The Norseman and the Danes landed upon the northeastern shores ol this continent several times between the years 986 and 1300 as Is proven by their own records- In 1492 Columbus planted the flag of Spain on First Flag to Float Over North American Soil led Cross of St George the banner of Richard Couer do Lion In 1192 and planted at Labrador by Se bastlan Cabot In 1497 as the royal ensign of Henry VII the island of San Salvador one of the Bahamas and again in 1498 at the mouth of the Orinoco In South America but the first flag to float over the soil of the North American continent of which his tory tells was planted on tho shore of Labrador in 1497 by Sebastian Cabot The first stageof evolution was marked two years before tho settlement of Jamestown when James I of England in honor of the union placed the diagonal white cross of St Andrew with tho red cross of St George both upon a blue field This Is the first blending of the American national colors known to history The red whlto and blue is therefore as eld as the country
