LESSONS OF; ELECTION RESULTS
f Off-year elections are traditionally disappointing to the
party in power; and the election of the 7th was ho exception
td this rule. Both houses ,of Congress will be Republican
. But with reduced majorities-- ' j, ; ,
f 'And many familiar faces will be missing when the ses
sion opens on March 4th next. But the losses of the notables
"are fairly distributed between the two parties. -
. These off-year elections are seldom decided on par
tisan issues. When the Presidency Is not at stake, locr.l quar
rels and petty disputes occupy the attention of the elector
ate. To appreciate this one has but to reflect that Senator
Hitchcock, Democrat, -"of Nebraska," who led the fight in the
senate for .the.ratificationnf. the League of Nations' covenant
without reservations was defeated for r reelection ; ... while
SehAtof IgHh-mbitteTed personal and political enemy
of President Vyilson, narrowly' escaped defeat in'Iassachu

atorial seat, in Maryland. Senator France, although running
! ort the Republican ticket, is known both as an extreme radi
cal antfa-"bitter-ender."-J4 was awed witn wonnson, uoran
and LaFollette m his opposition to the four-power treaties.
Republicans of. Maryland refused tq.support,a 'candidate who
usm the party name as a mask for this radicalism. His op
ponent is -a conservative, and will .vote with the present , ad
ministration, except-on strictly partisan measures;.
- .: Republicans of North, Dakota joined with the Democrats
to ttefeat a Republican senatorial candidate who captured the
nomination by reason of the direct primary. He is a member
of the notorious Nonpartisan League, and his defeat was In
'.rcLlity a defeat of wfflcalisjn:

; ' Senator Pomerene's defeat in Ohio was a personal vic
tory for President Harding. The Democrats centered' their
attack on this senatorship. claiming a victory for Pomerene
would be a reDudiatlon of the Harding administration.
Taking the results as a whole one discovers that the
electionlwas not decided on national issues. Not one of the
.Republican policies has been repudiated; not one of the Dem
ocratic protests has been vindicated. V;
! "At, the time of the primaries there was a great hue and
cry about the gains made by fformer Progressives in the Re
publican ranks. : But the results In the general election in
' dicate that: former Progressives are not as successful against
the Democratic opposition as Republicans whomever deserted

Leprosy, the scourge of the
ages, is apparently near its end.
After 'raging over the A world,
probably since the beginning of
man,. ; it is at last being con
quered by modern science.
Egyptian prescriptions for the
disease have been found dated
4600 B. C. Literature from
Bible times to the present Is fill
ed, with descriptions of lepers and
hcw they have been stoned, killed
or avoided with the utmost, fear
In the Middle Ages the disease
became extensively diffused in
tttrope. At this time every town
had its leper, house.- No means
were found to conquer it, segre
gation seemingly having no eJ-
fictr. Yet strangely during the fif
teenth century the disease under
went , a remarkable diminution
hhd practically disappeared from
cfvMted parts of Europe.v . 4;v
7 At the cresent time tanrnqrv
prevails extensively throughout
Asia ana m Airica. it stui exists
n Norway. Iceland, along the
shores of the Baltic, in South
Russia, Greece, Turkey, Spain
and jPortugal.' ? It Is found In
tetfly all parts of South and Cen-
t a! America and In certain parts
ht North America. Isolated cases
thought to be imported appear
In the Hawaiian Islands the
disease, unknown before 1848, is
believed to have been - imported
by Chinese, so that by 1882 there
were reported to be 4000 lepers
there, . .
Because the disease seems to
affect Islands and the sea coast-
more than the interior an an
cient belief Is held my many, that
it Is caused 'or fostered by a fish
diet. But leprosy is (found In the
Interiors where fish is not an ar
ticle of diet. As 'yet no theory
advanced for its cause appears to
be bullet-proof, but a cure does
seem to have been found. It is

from the' flower of an East'In
