I Looking Forward.

When the legisliture of 1924 convenes

the people will not hive to wtlt

to letrn the purpose of the Republican

majority in the lower house. This

will be ready for presentation juSt as

soon as the lawmaking department of

the State government gets into action.

The policy will voice the deolslon of the

Republican State Committee, as . the

representative body of Repubilctns of

the Empire State. Thai the declaration

will be safe and sound there is not'the

slightest doubt. JudRlnR from the election

results the people loolc to the Republican

Assembly to protect them

from further unsafe and.unsound recommendations

of the Smith administration.

Just what the Repufilican declaration

will be i« yet to be determined,

but, accepting the word of Chairman

George K. Morris, the program will

contain suggestions that will meet with

the approval of the thinking people.

Chairman Morris says that before the

first of .the year there will be aconferenec

of Republicans so the big probr

lems can be given proper consideration

and so whatever is done will not be

don^ until the best minds of the Republican

organization nave been consulted.

Then what Is submitted will be

so far as possible a composite opinion

of the Republican party.

Chairman Morris says the last election

proved that the people havefalth

and confidence. In the Reublican party

and that the attitude of the Republican

Assembly shouWalsoiprove'to the people

that tht. confidence the voters have

In the Republican p^rty js not misplaced.

Chairman Morris promises that the

Republican '• policy wllf • b« carefully

studied so that when Jt is presented It

will embody only that -which Is for the

greatest good for the greatest number.

The State'Chairman says the election

uf a Republican governor and State

ticket in 1924 and the approval of the

Jiallonal administration by the people

nf New York State will depend largely

upon the conduct of the Republican

Assembly. He has no fear as to the outcome

and is confident that the Republicans

of the lower house will put New

York State back in the Republican

Column next year where It should remain

for years to come.

No Funds for Fakes.

Posts of the American Legion will

no longer be victimized by fakers who

claim membership in the organization In

order to obtain funds. Lemuel Bolles,

national adjutant of the organlzatlpn,

has declared. An. effort by Legion national

headquarters to clear the country

of such Ispostcrs will soon be undertaken.

The problem of the transient ex-service

men has,lqng been a serious one

to legion posts. Continual demands

are made for assistance. Many of the

Claims on which demands are made have

been found fraudulent. Certain recipients

of funds for relief are know to

have travelled all over the country at

the expense o,f the legion while others

have disslpat^jtbe money in idleness.

A recent case^has been reported to

national head(]u;tj;taTs from a Kentucky

^ post. There a;main and a woman represented

to be hiss.wife applied to the

post adjutant for^aid.. The adjutant took

them into his.jawH :t)QB]e 'z'nd cashed

several checks op.'a::^lobile,'Ala:, bank

where the man claimed Jagion'membershlp.

Before these--ch«clL&;w«re-relurned

to the adjutant marked "no funds''

the twain had departed it^ingi,- with

them a supply of legion members);ip

cards and the adjutant's bekf Irosu^rs.

The national .prganlzation seeks

elimination of stijdi .Instances. Telegraphic

word is s^nV,to all departments

when such operations are reported. At

the SanFrancisco convention of the legiun

a resolution was passed that Is expeceted

to end the practice. According

to Adjutant Bolles' explanation of this

resolution before any funds are paid

to applicants telegraphich authority

from the post in which membership is

claimed must be requested or a thorough

investigation made before funds

•are presented to the applicant.

Christmas Troes.

The season for cutting Christmas

trees has arrived. There a concerted

attack made upon nature^ trees

of the evergreen varieties to provide

this attractive feature uf the Christmas

holidays, says the New York State College

of Forestry at Syracuse University.

While the College believes in evergreen

trees for Christmas It does not

approve of cutting the tops from trees

that have taken from 30 to SO years

to develop.

The production of Christmas tree is a

practical business proposition to-day

and there are several owners of plantations

in the east who are selling

Christmas trees which have been raised

from especially planted evergreen forests.

Many of the plantations of New

York State that have been set out for

commercial purposes are now old

•enough for thinning and the species of

trees on such plantations in some cases

are adaptable for Christmas use. Farmers

are often glad to have their pasture:!

cleared of pine, spruce and bal-

^am trees which have come up here and

there thru natural re-seeding. In such

cases as these the cutting of evergreen

trees is commendable but the destruction

uf mature commercial limber by

cutting off the lops uf trees is unecunomical

and against the princlpies uf


Due to the fact that there are thousands

of mature trees nlutiittfil each

)ear the Cuilege of forestrjr urges a

mure rational attitude on tUA.part of

those who a,re inclined to destroy such

valuable property.

Clara kept a neat list on a slatfr

there watf tbe dlninicst i>Kslblllty that

Nora, tbe laundress, would carry anything

flwny with her, but something

might get caught In the clothes chulo

or mislaid In the laundry.

It was one fine Tuesday In October

when Clara, counting tbe clean clothes

noticed the absence of one of a dnsen..

ten napkins. She had remembered

5ulte disilnctljt having sent down eight,

for there had been seven guests besides

herself Friday afternoon when

she used them at ber two-table bridge


Clara consulted Mary, maid of all

work. "Would you mind looking

anmnd tbe laundry and in the clothes

chute?" she nskt-d. "Things might get

mislaid ntid I don't want to wait until

Nora comes a^'uln."

Mftry started lu uesfpnd to the laundry.

"Il's more likely they'd get

blown oITn the lines," said Mary In going.

"I minded Nora to fasten tb»

Clara recalled tbat tbe wind bad

been southwest on Monday. Clara was

like tbnt, a keen observer with a precise

memory. She quickly went Into

tbe gardenstretcli behind the kltcbeo.

A wind blowing from the southwest

would blow In tbe dIrecUon of the.

northeast, that was simple enough; and

at tbe northeast of the Wells' plac*

was the high hedge that divided tbelr

property from that of the Peppers. So

Mary went out searching throngh the

hedge, a thick hedge with sharp twigs

I scratches were worth while for Mary

with 'her fine sense of values and her

keen observation, It was a very, very

good sock and In perfect condition.

She felt real cunceni for whoever

be irrllatt'd lo lose one. There'd always

be tbat extra sock In one's

drawer waititiK fur u possible return

of its male—like one love bird sitting

mournfully on \\» little perch after lU

companion had died.

"Do you know anybody that wears

purple socks?" Mary asked her father

and brother at dinner, abruptly switching

tbe conversation from a discussion

of their favorite candidate for governor

at tiie' approaching election.

"Not a real 'Rti/ple. exactly, but a dark

blue with a purpMsb aliade."

"No, tbnnk fonune," quoth tbe

brother, "i don't cultivate any freaks,

"I confi'Ks I never notice tbe color

paused, smiling. "Why, daughter,

would yuu like to meet a man who

Until «:30 o'clock Sunday morning

Ch«rlet J. fttterson of Cleveland,

«n|^neCr In charge of a section of the

Twentieth Cientury Limited, had no

VrioQt blimlsh npon hly twenty*slx

years record in the railway service.

He had worked his way to a responsible

and honored position by proving

himself, as far as could be determined,

absolutely trustworthy. But

mt one mintite after l:30 the fate which

Is the nightmare of every passenger

engineer had overtaken him. He had

run past his signals and in an Instant

wine ntes -were wiped out.

The • lnre*tigttIon will show what

VtenuatIon.«'48 were divided equally between

the Holmes and Patterson Granges.

There was a large attendance at the

annual fair and supper of the Baptist

Ladles* Aid Society Saturday evening

at Grange Halt. About 180 was taken in

at the supper tables. A fine program

bf readings and music was a pleasing

close to the evening affair and It Is expected

quite a lar^e amount was cleared

for the society.

EnploymaBl Shows DceroH*.

The factory employment reports for

November are not encouraging. Employment

went down almost 2 per cent.

although November Is usually the busiest

month of pre-Chrlstmas activity.

This statement was Issued by Industrial

Commissioner Bernard L. Shlentag of

the State Department of Labor.

It should be noted, however, that

employment in the manufacturing Industries

Is still at a high level. It Is

still as high as it, was a year ago and

it Is very much higher than In November

of 1921. 'Payrolls have risen

steadily and show a substantial Increase

over those of last year. The

decrease In employment In November

for this year may, therefore, only be

temporary In character.

There does not appear to be any

simple reason for the apparent

slackening. The purchasing power of

factory employees Is high and that of

farmers has recently Improved. One

difficulty Is psychological—lack of

confidence and therefore, of forward

buying. On the other hand, if fear of

overproduction or of bad times lead

to unemployment, that In itself will

seriously reduce factory payrolls and

help still further to restrict business.

The management of the Strand Theatre

has spared no expense In obtaining

the best vaudeville and feature photoplays

of merit. Six hi^h class vaudeville

acts In conjunctio/i with the s&perproductlon

"The Marriage Maker,'' featuring

Jack Holt and Agnes Ayres will

be shown Saturday. A real surprise.

Our attention has been called to an

article in the November 3oth issue of

the Dairymen's League News, bearing

the heading "Price Cutting." which

seems to require reply to our patrons.

The League' charges our Company and

our Producers* Association with price

cutting. The facts are these:

The first Intimation we had of any

change In th'> price situation was on

the morning of November 9th when we

read in the New York Times an article

entitled, "Producers Price of Milk Re­

duced." In this article Mr. G. W. Slo-

cum, President of the Dairymen's Lea­

gue Assclatlon Is credited with saying:

"The directors' action in reducing

the producers* price Is a quick response

to the workings of the law of supply

and demand. The association asked

f3.45 per 100 pounds for milk on Nov.

1st, an increase of 20c per iOO pounds

over the price prevailing during the

last two weeks In October, Under nor­

mal conditions the producers' priie in­

creases this month. Pastures are gone.

Farmers out their cows In the bams

and begit\ feeding on winter rations.

All of this adds to the cost of produc­


"Dealers, as well as farmers, expect­

ed that production would be materially

reduced in November, but Instead we

find that there Is an over-production

for this, season of the year-due to a

number\)f reasons, one of which Is the

open fall weather which has enabled

farmers to turn their cows out to for­

age for themselves. Milk has been com­

ing into our territory from outside

sources and there Is a greater supply

than the fluid milk market can absorb.

There has also been a failing off in com-

fparison owing to the recent Increase In

the retail price."

"We expect that a reduction In price

to the consumers will result In Increas­

ing consumption." •

In most cases there are only two i

reasons for excess weight—overeating '

and Insufficient exercise or a comblna-1

cure is obvious. It Is simply less food

and more exercise.

"Le us attack the first—"less food.''

In response to this you may say that

you eat very iittlel True but even this

little may be too much if you are not

burning it up by sufficient exercise.

You must eat less—where you have

been eating two slices of bread, eat one.

where you have been eating one pota­

on. In short:

Take small helpings of everything.

Avoid second helpings.

Never eat between meals.

and sweets of .ail kinds.

The din^rence in tne wearing qualities

of the dilTerent grades of combs

may b^ a bit of new and useful information

to the shopper.

There Is a wide range In the quality

of tlicse goods. But what Is hardest

fcr most of us to believe, li that these

differences are not due to the differ^

ent grades of celluloid, used, but in

niost Insiances to tlie coloring matter

used, the inetliod of manufacture, and

the way the article ia finished.

There are three tj'pes of combs, the

sawed tooth, cut tooth, and tlie molded

or pressed.

The sawed tooth combs are the best

to buy. ,ThlH is because of the method

of manufacture. In cutting the teeth,

tite saw goes straight to the base of

the tootli. and thus glvea a rectango*

lar opening at the base. Ifl the cut

tooth comb, two combs are made at

once, and one set of teeth comes out

of the space between the teeth of the

other comb. This makes the (^wnlnga

wedge-shaped. Medium-priced combf

are generally molded. It Is difficult

to distinguish them froin cut combs,

but they are lighter In weight

When buying a comb, Iben, It IB ah

ways wise to look carefully at the base

of the teeth. If the openings are

square, and the teeth are about the

same distance apart at the base and

at the point. It Is a sawed tooth comb.

Wlien the openings are wedge-shaped,

you are looking at a cut tooth or mold;

ed comb. You pay more for a sawed

tooth comb, because It takes as mucb

labor to make one of that type aa It

doea two of the cut variety, but the

satisfaction of using one Justlflcs the

difference In cost You will notice the

difference In the way the hair catches

and pulls while sliding through the

wedge^haped openings of the cut

combs, while It passes easily and

smoothly through tlie square openings

of ihe' sawed tooth kind. _

Meat cneap comns mrve tne tootn at

one . end spreading out a little from

the rest This happens In the procesa

of manufacture, and Is bent Into ahape

somewhat when the comb la finished,

but a little bnlge can always be detected.

Women Hear Program of

National Woman's Party

Presented bjr Mra. Clarence M. Smith,

New York SUte Cbalmuin at the

Meeting of Repubticmn Women in the

Cameo Theitre Monilay Afternoon.

"The National Woman's Party,'' said

Mrs. Smith, "Is not oritanized for political

purposes as the Republican and

Democratic parties. The object of the

party Is to remove all forms existlnc

in law or In custom which discriminate

against women. In opportunities (or

government seririce, education and advancement

In various Industrial occu­

pations women cannot participate as

men do."

Some of the bills which Senator Cotitlo

will introduce at Albany In the

comlns session to promote equal rights


S. 1. 233. Married Woman's Control

of Her Property and EarnhiKS—The old

common law doctrine that the wife's

services belong to the husband still

prevails In New York, he "being personally

entitled to such services to the

same extent as he Is to his own." It

has been held that the New York "Married

Women's Ads'' did not deprive

the husband of "his common law right

to avail himself of a profit or tien^tit

from her services."

This bill gives to a woman the riihi

to own her own labor and services,

whether she works inside or outside the

home, or for her husband or some one


S. I. 232. Natural Guardianship and

Appointment of Guardian by Parent—

Under the present law, a mother has

no voice in the management of her

child's real estate unless there be no

father. The father, and not the mother,

Is still by law absolute owner of the

services and earnings of his minor children,

unless he forfeits or gives to the

childreh the right to their own earnings.

This bill provides that neither

parent shall have any right' superior to

th:it of the other.

S. I. 25i, A9S and 249. Dower and

Curtesy—Under the present law. if a

wife dies without a will and there has

bene a child born alive, the husband

inherits the use, for life, of all of his

wife's real estate. That Is his "curtesy."

If a hu!iband dies without leaving a

win, the wife inherits the use for life

of one-third of his real estate, which Is

her dower. However, she can will away

his curtesy, but he cannot will awav

her dower.

These bills provide that In case of the

death of either husband or wife without

a will, the survivor shall have the

use for life of one-half of the other's

real estate and further provides that

neither husband nor wife can will away

the dower of the other.

of court, or, in the absence of such a

decree, to the parent having actual custody

Of the child, and If one parent be

dead, to the sole surviving parent.

S. 1. 2S2. Domicile—Under the existing

law, the husband ha* the right to

fix the domicile without the-wife's consent

thereto, unless his choice Is unreasonable

or unles sshe has separated

from him for Justifiable cause. "If a

wife is living apart from her husband,

without sufficient cause, his domicile is

in law her domicile." (I8l U. S., 1S5).

This applied to a case where New York

was claimed as the domicile of a woman

separated from her husband. Her husband,

who lived in Kentucky, sued her

for divorce for desertion and obtained

the divorce without the wife 'having

had personal notice of the suit or an

opportunity to be heard Irt defense, because

the court decided that her "matrimonial

domicile" was the place of

residence of her husband, and therefore

it was not necessary to serve her with

notice of suit In New York, where she,

as if she were unmarried.

No Reason Why U. S. Government Should Not

Be Run on Business Basis

By JOHN H. GLGNN, nilnoii Hanufacturera' Ats'n.


COtJLD scarcely believe my eyes when I saw the news of a movement

among a minority in congress to abolish the budget during the

coming session. It is a stupid move in eveiy way, and I pannot

imagine how any senator or representative oonld go back to his constituents

and ask for re-election if he voted for sudi a thing.

The day is long past when any member of congress can satisfy the

folks back home with juicy morsels out of the "pork barrel." The public

is now aware that they pay for "pork/' and fv government extravagance

and ineinciency, out of their own pockets, in the form of tales. The public

is tired of it.

Business men, especially the manufacturers, are tired of it, too. We

are not in favor of too much regulation, or of too much centralized power

in the government, but we certainly are in favor of regulating the expenditure

of money raised by taxes and guaranteeing that it is used efficiently*

If money is appropriated unwisely by congress, it simply means more

taxes for everybody to pay. In the long run, this means tihat the little

fellow gets it in the nedc, and the poor man foots the bills.

The manufacturer can absorb only his share of it—the rest has to

be passed along to the consumer.

The manufacturers of this sta^, and I think also throughout the

country, see no reason why the government cannot, and should not, be

run on a business basis.

If a successful manufacturer has to run his business on a budget, or

else go broke, he doesn't see bow public funds could be spent intelligently

except under a budget system.

There had always been a deficit at Washington until the budget was

adopted. We all helped to pay the bill with our taxes. You will not find

any business man who wants to go back to that kind of thing. We want

the budget, and will work to keep itl

u 'At Panama the Stars and Stripes Becomes the

Flag of Empire"

By STEPHEN GRAHAM, In "In Quest of El Dorado."

At Panama the Stars and Stripes becomes the flag of empire: It

may droop at Washington; it may look ridiculous in the hands of a Babbitt;

but at Panama it is the flag of America's inevitable destiny, the

flag of her sway and of the triumph of her language, her character and

her business. ^

America began her great national task in a spirit of human kindness,

by,a magnificent effort to save the life of the workers. . . . She

overcame the idea of the white man's grave. She rolled away the stone

from the sepulchre.

The East is larded with leisure; the West runs on it as on oil. One

of America's great needs is to do something for the children of leisure—

to make life more interesting.

There is almost no religion. Moral fervor stands instead of religion.

The note of wonder^ of awe, of divine praise is almost entirely absent.

This New Woman Only Shrugs Her Shoulders

and Smiles a Secret Smile

By MISS ALYSE GREGORY, in Current History Magazine.

Ifinisters may extol chastity for women from pulpit rostrums and

quote passages from the Old and Kew Testaments to prove that purity

and fidelity are still her most precious assets, but this new woman ^only

ahruga her shoulders and smiles a slow, penetrating, secret smile.

It is all too true that these modem girls and women are often a little

hard, aggressive and obvious, and lack that gentleness of bearing and

softness of voice which are so pleasing to every one who prizes culture

and hates the noise and chaos of modern, mechanized democracies. But

they have, too, a certain fearlessness and gallantry, and not so very far

beneath these startling upper layers, in a new coat of ironic indulgence,

ia hidden, one suspects, the old pity and understanding of the childlike

vagaries of man.

When also one compares them to their Victorian spinster prototypes,

00 meek and petulant and useless, venting tlieir sex starvation on servants

or relatives, profoundly and stupidly ignorant of everything but their

own passing "migraines," parasites to the social body, one wonders if

these practical, disillusioned, modern women, in spite of serious lapses,

are not in the end of greater use to the community and to their friends.

Laws in th^ Last Twenty-Five Years for the

Welfare of the People

By JUDGE WILLIAM N. GEMMILL, Chicago Municipal Court

More laws have been passed in this country in the last 26 years to

protect the life and health and secure the liberty and happiness of our

people than in all the previous history of the republic.

I^st year in Chicago 175,000 people were arrested for violating laws.

By actual tabulation I found that more than one-half of them were arrested

for violating laws that did not ezist 25 years ago. Kew laws I Every

one of which was designed to make more secure the life, the health and

the liberty and happiness of everybody in the community. Mliat are some

of them?

The white slave law, which forbids traffic in human flesh; the pure

food laws which drive the poison from the things you eat and drink; the

anti-trust laws, which prevent the crushing of the weak man by the giants

of trade; child labor laws, which protect and defend the children of the

land from greed aud eiploitation; laws of sanitation and health; laws requiring

safety appliances in every factory upon dangerous macljinery;

ten-hour laws for women and eight-hour laM-s for men.

What was the weather on that first Christmas

day, nenriy 2,000 years ago, when Christ was born

In Bethlehem of Judea?—tliat's the first question

When one begins to think about CbrlBtmas weather.

Well, it must have been warm and bright, for the

shepherds were feeding their flocks by night and

the Wise Men of the East saw the star in the East

and followed it. In modem Judea, which ia drier

than of old, tlic temi>eroture In December by day

Is about like that of a cool summer day in Chicago,

jikimetlmett It gets pretty chilly at night,

but freezing weather is rare. So that first Christmas

set a good example to all the ages.

Bethlehem probably has changed very lirtie

since the first ChrUtmas. The ordinary house has

but one room, on the floor of which the occupants

sleep at night on mats. No one tlilnks of staying

In the house in the daytime, except when it rains

or storms. They sit on the ground outside, when

not at work, and talk with the neighbors. In the

rear of each house is either a shed or a dugout

kito the hillside. There the family ass end gouts

und sheep aud poultry are sheltered. It was In

kiuch a grotto or cave or dug-out in the rear of

some liouBe that Joseph und Mary found sltelter.

It was In such a place that Jesus was bom and

lilB mother wrapiied lllm In swuddlloKB aud laid

Him In the manger or trough out of vrhlch the cattle

were fed.

Why did not God provide a better place in this

lime of need? Would It have touched the heart of

mankind so deeply hud Jesus been T^oru in a palace?

"For our sake Ue became poor that we

through lilm might become rich." Tlie Lord of

heaven and eartli u Babe In u man;^r in a stable

in the little town of Bethlehem that Ue might save

us and all men from sin I

In the United States some of tlie Chrhttmas day

weather is very much like that of the first Christmas

in the Holy Loud. And some of 11 Is Just tlie

opposite. For the United States 1« a big country

>—sometliiug like S,000 mites from coast to coast

uod 1,000 miles north and souUi, to say nothing

of Aluiiku und Uie Hawaiian Isluuds and our other

outlylu:,' possessions. Besides, some of it Is not



th«lr • new riches. Bo, yvn see, this

Christmas Is going to be a great op*'

portunlty for thetn. They will send

Hi a stunning present They are a

little parrenu. Why deny It? To take

onr breath away they will give QS

something extraordinary. Well, I don't

went to be thrown in the shade." .

"Yes, yes, I understand," said Bl

Mourllne, "You are right. I>adflse

you to make a tour of tlie second-hand

shops. Tou have good judgment Yon

may find something which looks like

a real antique. And they will nerer

know what it cost"

She shrugged her shoulders.

The younger son was a bit ot •

The indulgent fatlier promised to

"But," said he, "I hope you npderstand

"Rigidity sounds all very well, dad,"

agreed the Irrepressible one; "but I

Your doctor advises

internal cleanliness

HE will tell you that the first results of con^pation—headache,

sleepless nights, biltous'

neas, backache, etc.—warn that the body is flooded

with intestinal potaons. In time, these poisons

may cause the breakdown of health and lead to

•erioua disease. In constipation, say intestinal

specialists, lies the primaiy cause of more than

three-quarters of all illness including the gravest

diseases of life.

Hence, doctors urge internal deanlineas—

regular and thorough removal of food

waste from the body.

Laxatives Aggravate Constipation

Laxatives and cathartics do not overcome "Ktep Qeanbuid***

c^onstipation, says a noted authority, but by Sqr nu^ian*.

their continued use tend only to aggravate^

the condition and often lead to permanent injuiy.

Why Physicians Favor Lubrication *

Medical science, through knowledge of the intestinal

tract gained by X-ray observation, has found at

last in lubrication a means of overcoming constipation.

The gentle lubricant Nujol, penetrates and /

softens the Hard food waste and thus hastens its

passage out of the body. Thus Nujol brings internal


Nujol is used in leading hospitals and is prescribed

by physicians throughout the world. Nujol is not

a medicine or laxative and cannot gripe. Like

pure water it is harmless.

Get rid of constipation and avoid disease by

adopting the habit of internal cleanliness. Take

Nujol as regularly as you brush your teeth or wash

your face. For sale by all druggisU.
