McGURK & O'BRIAN John Holloway was in a mood to make resolves and giyo tho reasons for said resolves that afternoon. He nnd somo of the "old gang" had been lounging in tho wfarm and brightly lighted drug store for an hour when ho said : "You know over in Franco I found out that nearly every little old gardener and farmer nnd every shoe cobbler and carpenter had a lot of his 'jack soaked away in government bonds? It is a fact. I was never more surprised in my life than when I found out that the old women in tho house where I was billeted had been saving money all those years and sticking it away a handful of francs at a time, in honest to gosh government bonds. "Why you know that before we got into the war if anybody had told me about a government bond I would have thought they were talking about the bond that the judge says must be sighted if you don't want to get yourself slung into jail. Of course we heard a lot about bonds when the "Libertys" como along, but even then I had it fig- - West Frankfort, Ky.f "For many years I suffered with stomach trouble; my food nvuiii uoi digest, it "srould sour on my stomach and gas would form and cause me to be distressed and cramped until I would bo almost bent double with pain.

It soon relieved me of my stomach troublo and built me up in health and strength. 'Goldon Medical Discovery' did wonders for me and 1 am glad to give it a recommend." MRS. MARIA E. COX, 632 Kentucky Ave. Thore is but one way to have good health, and that is to put and keep your stomach in good order. This is easy to do if you take Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical "'jcovcry. It is a wonderful tonlo and blood purifier, and is so safe to take, for it is made of roots and herbs. Dr. Pierce of Buffalo, N. Y., stands behind this standard medicino, and it is good to know that so distinguished a physician ib proud to have his name identified with it. therefore, tb!is paper propounds a pertinent question to ths Itspuuii-ca- n Congress, it is likely to bo heard with respect oven if tho answer is not immediate and satisfactory.

"But that was one swell idea the Frenchies had, and they had it first by a big majority. It works out mighty well nnd I feel pretty sure that tho "Froggies' didn't fight any poorer becnuse they knew that they and their families had an absolute financial stake in that "la belle France' they were always talking about." "What'sthe idea anyway?" asked one of tho half interested group. "Do you intend to go back over there and work for francs instead of dollars and stick said francs into French bonds V "For why should I do that?" arHolloway. "Have gued we not finally got the same advantage over here, and in a darn sight better country than Franco ever was or ever will be? I'll say wo have. And boy, with n little old job and a little old luck I will bo ridin' on the world next Christmas. I'm going to save me some money and to keep it from slipping through these fingers of mine I'm certainly going to take a leaf out of the Frenchman's book." "Oh, nil right, but what is tho plan?" asked another idler, who was willing to go most anywhere but home. "Why, grasp and throttle radicalism, expel or imprison anarchists, exterminate preachers of violence, exclude dangerous aliens and generally to clean America's house," says tho Post. V "What is Congress thinking of, V that it should delay in this matter?" tho paper asks. Then tho editorial indicates one or both of the causes in its next question. "Is it lacking in individual or committee initiative or courage?" Attorney General Palmer, has repeatedly pointed out to the Republican leaders of Congress that additional legislation is needed to authorize his department to deal with radicals and "reds." When once the task has been properly sanctioned by law there remains the need of money to enforce the statutes. Congress has refused both the authority and""the funds.

Let "Doctor" Moses decide whether it is illness or incompetence that afflicts h'is Republican associates. i 5 TO TH- E- Christmas Trade We desire to say it will be best for the customer to No duplicates can be had and all goods with quality are hard to get BUY EARLY JOHN W.
