H. G. Wells Heaves a Brick
If - WELLS, tho sometimes
genial but often peevish writ
er of old England, In furnishing
lor the Tortland OreRonlan a sor
lea of Blsned arlielns. In effect hr
says in Ills last article that wlthiu
the last fifty years bolh faith anil
chastity have nearly vanished and
'"that we now scorn such regula
tions as "ye shall not" and "ye
-shall." -
- Wells loves to write things lik
that. He likes to stand off and
say "MOO!" at a serious-minded
liardwoi-KiiiK world, JiisjL to see
what It will do.
Have things so changed? No.
not so very much, ir you look at
things squarely. Rather we have
changed for the betler, morally,
IT the written histories of tho sev
enteenth and eighteenth centuries
are to be believed. The very lax-
lty of those ages was. largely
" responsible for tbe reversion to
--terrific strictness und so It goes.
If people, generation after gen
eration, accumulated the attributes
and mental habits of previous gen
erations, Wells' conclusions that
all Is now changed and that faith
and other human attributes which
we call virtues, have been cast,
overboard, might furnish food ror
worry and thought. New genera
tions come along, though, and do
their own thinking particularly
now do they do their own think
ing. Wells correctly says that we are
Inquiring more Into facts of thin
and that now more than ever be
fore. In the opinion of this writer,
Mr. Wells falls down in his Inter
pretation of what this original
thinking will lead to. He thinks li
'.means what he calls "freedom"
-'and what we would cull a moral
; break-down. ' '.
i B'allh, (mill orthodox religious
faith and blind trusting faith of
tho non-reli'iious mind, Is stronger
In tho world today than before. We
have no figures or other arguments
to BiihBtantlale that statoment -only
a question: Do you find In
the written or spoken word today
as much of atheism as there was
even a few years ago? The hor
rors, losses and sufferings of the
World war created atheism out of
billernesB but on have come the
young people leavening this bitter
ncas with an active IntcroBi In the
bwchUicbb of life- helping those
embittered to rowel. Kalth shall
live on lu spite of Mr. Wells, for
we are created to ttavo faith.
Says Mr. Wells: "Wo are now
confronted with a now generation
which finds no value In faith and
no virtue In cbasllly."
Tomtnyrot! Wo havo some
. twenty or thirty centurion of ac
curate record of human experience
behind us and now someone Bays
there Is "no virtue In chastity."
There has always been anil al
ways will be a great price, many
prices, paid by those foolish indi
viduals wiio tririo carelessly with
tho thing we call sex. No "shining
of the standards ot morality" as
WellB puts It, can eliminate or
lessen one whit the consequences
resulting In what, In spite of Mr.
'Wells, we shall call Immorality.
Writings like those of Mr. Wells
ony serve to get weekly foolish and
cureless people Into trouble. The
world has never tolerated sex tin
morality and It never will, but I!
there Is any present trend II Is a
sure trend toward limiting the
consequences of the Immoral act
to tbe Individual. This enlightened
(rend toward placing the respon
"Hibillly and consequences where
they belong will serve as nolblnpj
else to check the htxness which
, Mr. Wells nttrtbutes to the present
If Mr. Wells is right (und wi
think not I and there Is a la.vness
atid a looseness prevalent In the
world today- It Is too hud for the
generation or tbe present hut pre
diets most surely an Improvement

in his writings resembles a dried

Then Heywood Broun, contribu
tor to the "Nation" and the New
York Telegram, Is becoming a can

tributes a weekly page to the "Na

would be to have him write as a
member of congress, a socialist at
that. Ilroun. like Mencken, suc

wrong and out of Joint. He would
probably find plenty more material
if he should by any mischance get

NEXT time you walk down the
street make note of the per
sons who appear to have sore feet.
You w ill marvel at the numbers ol
limping, hobbling, mincing foot
There are many causes: corns,
bunions, lug row In? toe-nails, cal
louses, scraped heels. One or more
o" these ailments will make the
feet sore and incapable ol normal
There are two reasons for nit
such disturbances. Neglect of the
feet snd the wrong sort of shoes
in one of these lies tho trouble.
When you go to bed at night or
get up in tho morning, you do not
fail to wash the lace and hands.
Why should not the feet have an
equal share of attention? The
travel In dust and dirt, in wind and
water. Their use Is such that a
single day will soil them far more
than ihe hands. On this account
they should be bathed in water
with soap. Each day should see
the teet thoroughly cleansed. To
soak them In salt and water will
relieve many an ache and pain.
There should be remilar trim
ming of the nails. If done care
fully, shaving of the corns and re
moval of tbe callouses w ill do
much to promote happiness. It
you do not feel competent to treat
your own feel you may consult a
"podiatrist" or trained chlrodopts'
A dollar or two paid him will
prove a profitable investment.
Hut even though you' wash, dry
and powder your Teet regularly,
they will continue to bother you
if they are not welt shod. It pays
to purchase good shoes. Don't be
coaxed into taking any ol hers.
The writings and preachings of
health experts have tausht the pub
lie to read the labels on food pack
a Res. It has come to be know n
that what yon eat is vitally import
ant. It is time now to teach the
public Mutt there Is much to learn
about shoes.

about everything you intend to pur
chase. When you are attracted by the
statements made about this shoe
or that go to the store where It is
sold. See how the article looks.
Try on the shoes, both shoes, and
see how they feel and look. Make
sure of fit and quality.
It pays to care for the feet. You
have but two and will never have
more. You may be uncomfortable
whenever you walk. If this is the
case It is probable your shoes are
wrong. Take the best of care of
your feet and they will serve you
well all your life.

As tilings are, I should think you

wear the ring.
