Will Your Nam Be in the News?
XWriLh your name be inHhe news Monday or Tuesday
You may be sure that from eight to two dozen names
will be in the papers as they report automobile accidents
over the week-end. Will your name be among them?
We do not bring up .this subject for any morbid pur
,vose. We do not mean to frighten you into staying home.
But we do want to impress on you if you want to keep your
name out of the list of killed, maimed or missing to drive
carefully and to walk carefully.
. Nearly all accidents are preventable. The case on the
Astoria highway where a tree fell across the, road just at
the second to catch a motor ear and kill three of its occu
pants was as near an "act of God" as that legal phrase oft
en Is called on to cover. But most all the other accidents
we have read about could have been avoided by the exer
cise of just a little more caution.
Rules we could quote many rules. People know the
rules, but they fail to observe them. All we want to do is
to admonish folk as they load into their cars for an end-
of-the-season trip to the beach or the mountains to take
along an extra thickness of caution j and that decidedly
cioesn't mean corn likker.
You have a duty to preserve your own life, and to do
all you can to let the other fellow live.

Census Taking in Japan
JAPAN is getting ready for her second census on mod
ern methods. It will start October 1st and the estimate
for Japan proper (exclusive of Formosa and Korea and
Saghalien) is 63,750,000. The area of Japan is only 148,000
square miles practically the same as Montana which has
146,000 sq. mi. California has 158,000 sq. mi.
In other words, in a space about the size of Montana,
half as many people are living as reside in the entire United
States. In spite of the hard conditions of life in Japan the
inhabitants are intensely loyal, preferring the poverty and
congestion of cherry-blossom land to the spacious bleakness
of Manchuria. When one realizes the significance of these
figures showing the density of population in Japan, one can
sympathize with that country m the problems its states

When an inflammation of the
structure of a vela or veins takes
place it is called "phlebitis."
When Inflammation sets in there
is an oosing of a fluid, which is
a product -of the inflammation,
and this -covers the inner lining
of the vein. It accumulates un

blood stream when a -clot forma.
The effect of this process Is
the production of a swelling of
the limb or part involved. Pala
and tenderness are noted. The
inflamed vein feels hard and
knotted to the touch. It seems
almost like a piece ot rope.
When it is deep-eeated it Is Im

of a vein.

in the vein may become infected.

many. It may follow an injury
or an operation. Following
childbirth there may be some
trouble of the veins. Influenza
and typhoid fever sometimes
have phlebitis as a complication.
Treatment depends on the
cause and the site of the vein

injury. In a week or two the
clot is absorbed and all is well.

A woman with straggling gray
hair at the end ot the front row
stepped awkwardly around the
railing which hemmed in the

chief out of the shabby black
bag suspended from her arm, and
thrust it into Aline's hand. She
hesitated for a moment, as If un

shoulder, and Aline's bowed head
was pressed, against a calico

said. "It was a good story while

but Peter had already lounged
across the room, pausing to whis
per a few words la Max's ear. He
crossed to Aline and took her
gently by the arm.
"I want you to drive to Gray's
Flat with me," he said, his lips
close to her-ear. "The air wlU do
yon good. I've got to wire the
story ot the verdict and I want
to talk to you."
For a moment Aline looked at
him as If she had forgotten who
Oh, it's you!" she said when
the moment of blankneas paaaed.
Yes I'll come."
Automatically she opened her
bat; and reached for Hp-stick and

tremulous smile at the woman
who still stood with an arm pro

she withdrew her head empty.

"Oh. thank you so much." Aline
was not smiling now. With a side-
wise glance at Peter which dared
him to laugh. Aline, whose pow

white talcum on her face without
the aid of a mirror.
Peter waited. Jerking with im
patience, while she gently pried
herself loose from Mrs. Jenkins.

he led her out by the side door,

Peter considered a moment.
"I can tell you one thing." he
said at last. "There weren't any
letters in the lodge. I went over
it with a fine tooth comb." If she
were worried about the loss of the
letters, she would do her utmost
to give him every help In her

With the verdict, they considered
the story "dead."
He had the advantage in his
hands the tremendous advantage
of her fear. The story came first.
Of course It came first! Why, a
month ago he hadn't even, heard
of these people. What did they
matter, compared with the Her
ald? Without the Impetus of her
fear to make her help him, he
might lose out entirely. And then,
ust as if he had not settled the
argument in his own mind, he
spoke the words that would re
linquish that advantage.
"I think you're making a mis
take." he said, as Bossy swung
out into the main road. "If you
take my advice, you'll tell your
husband how things were between
you and Mortison. You haven't
anything to be afraid of, really.
I couldn't say It of many men. but
