j Jimmy Walker and Tom Mooney
MAYOR JIMMY WALKER'S trip to California to inter
cede for Tom Mooney looks much like a publicity stunt
for the New York mayor. Jimmy seems to be most anxious
"for excuses to keep out of the city he is supposed to gov
jgrn. Part of the time he is at a desert resort in Southern
California, part of the time he is in Eurooe for the baths.
Now after reaching home he waits but a 'ew weeks before
grabbing his bags and starting outto California to tell
Got. Ralph what he ought to do.
What the California governor will do is up to that gen
tleman liimself. But we would like to make his speech for
him. We would suggest that the debonair Jimmy wash the
shirts in New York city's politics before coming west to
purge California. We'd ask him to explain how prominent
officials are able on meagre salaries to bank hundreds of
thousands of dollars. He might tell what Tammany hall is
doing to aid (?) the efforts of Lawyer Seabury in investi
gating the corruption which is showing up in official circles
in :New York City.
! What is Jimmy so nervous about himself? Why does he
jump like a flea from Hollywood to Carlsbad? Why not stick
to the job in Gotham and turn a hand at giving that city
an honest administration?
Tom Mooney may deserve release from San Quentin.
For our part if he is guilty he has suffered longer confine
ment than the average men who commits a murder; and
since there is a widespread doubt of his guilt we think it
would be all right to give him release through pardon. But
we do not think that Jimmy Walker knew much of anything
about the facts in the case, that his trip is chiefly a publicity
atunt, and that he will simply rehearse arguments which
have long before been related, without unfolding any "new
PREMIER LAVAL is back home and counts his trip to
America a success, evidently thinking he has impressed
the French viewpoint on people on this side of the water. His
speech in the chamber of deputies shows rather a relentless
, attitude toward Germany. He reiterates the theme-song of
French post-war politics when he declaims no cut in repar
ations, without corresDondine cut in war debts. Not much
hope there, chiefly because of the stiff-necked attitude.
Now Premier Grandi goes back to Italy, and counts his
trip a success. What basis he has for optimism is not known
for Pres. Hoover has been reticent about his conversations
with each of his international visitors. Perhaps the parting
statements are but the gracious expressions of those who
have enjoyed our hospitality. We do not think any of these
foreign premiers have gotten away with any of the White
House prate, or the country's pledges.
The European situation, politically speaking, seems back
about where it was after this visitation and conferences
over the tea-cups. Meantime some of the economists and
bankers .have been working, and time has been working. And
there have been some indications that the critical conditions
of mid-summer have been partly ameliorated, so that when
Feb. 1st comes round the German position so far as its short
term obligations are concerned will be strengthened.
The United States is glad to have the notables of Europe
come over for tea and wafers. We are sociable. And we

Dr. CoDelaad occur from one
of a great many things.
The most common form of heart
disease is that due to infection.
The infection travels through the
body by way of the blood stream.
It reaches the inside of the heart
and locates there. Then follows a
condition that seriously interferes
with the normal action of the
The heart is divided into four
chambers; two upper and two low
er chambers. The upper chambers
are spoken ef as "auricles," the
left and right auricles: the lower
chambers are the "ventricles," the
right and left ventricles.
Between the left auricle and
the left ventricle is a valve called
the ."mitral valve." In heart dis
ease It Is this valve that Is most
commonly affected. It la In par
ticular danger of attack in cases
of acute rheumatic fever.
When the mltrol valve is in
volved, there is an interference
with Its normal working. In con
sequence, the blood Is permitted
to leak through. This is the rea
son why this trouble is spoken of
as a "leaking heart." The doctors
refer to It as "mitral heart dls

produces a "murmur." This may
be heard by the physician who lis

to the heart. Ia a mild form of
heart trouble the murmur is of no
In the advanced form, as a re
sult of the changed function due
to the impaired valve, the heart
enlarges. As it increases in size, it
does not do its work' as well. In a
more pronounced case, where
there are impaired valvular ac

muscle, there is a sluggish action,
with the result that the blood is
not passed on through the body as
In such individuals there is usu

the normal reddish color but often

symptom is swelling of the feet.
There are other valves, of

as the mitral.
-Another form of heart disease
where there is no defect of the
valves, is spoken of as "myocard

cle of the heart. Thia muscle may
become badly weakened from
overstrain, lack of nourishment or
physical disease. The action of the
heart depends entirely upon the"
strength and tone of this muscle.

blood vessels in the body. A com
mon form of disease Is hardening
of the vessels, causing the condi

of the heart. This is rarely found
in youth but Is a sign of uncoming
Unfortunately, most people be
come alarmed when they are told
they have heart disease. Yet the
records show that many people,
with heart disease live to a good
old age. They are sure to do so if
they realize their shortcomings
and lire accordingly.
Quiet life, abundant rest, and
work that is not fatiguing, are im
perative. Periodic examinations by
the doctor should be the rule.
Where advised, rest in bed should
not be considered an ordeal, but
a way to health and long life.

Russell ConwelL delivered thous
ands of times, the proceeds of
which, running into hundreds of
thousands, went to charitable and
educational work. "Acres of Dia
monds" waa the subject.
The story was that of a man
in South Africa who yearned tor
great wealth and traveled the
world over seeking to satisfy his
ambition and came back to the
farm where h was born, poorer
than when he left it. Then he
found on the home farm "acres
of diamonds" rendering him rich
beyond his early dreams. Conwell
applied the lesson eloquently in
his lecture to many opportunities
that lie all about us, giving num
He ranged the world and
searched the pages of history tor
the high points of his appealing
and glamorful story. He might
have extended bis illustrations
indefinitely. The Mayo .brothers
in Rochester, Minn., have built a
city on their father'a farm; now
the world center for medical re
search. P. G. Banting, discoverer
of insulin, was a poor farm boy
of Canada. Edison got his first
inspirations while a peanut
'butcher" boy on the train. West-
lnghouse was called a "damned
fool" by one of the first railroad
presidents to whom he sought to
explain his idea of the air brake.
The list is long. It contains the
names written large on the en
during scroll of fame of most
men who left the beaten track
and developed new Ideas in the
realms of science and religion
who dreamed dreams and saw
visions of better things for their
own and succeeding generations.
The writer has long contended
that "acres of diamonds" exist in
Oregon, in the Willamette val
ley. In the Salem district, in
greater profusion and promise

world: that this comes from our
fortuitious -combination of soil,
sunshine and showers, and that
this is the land of diversity, the
country of opportunity.

any fnll grown man can recall,

of tobacco juice.

ways from the beaten track, after
original experimentation. He has
developed a Leghorn strain that
is bigger than the average, and
that produces larger and more
nearly 100 per cent white eggs.
He has raised the average weight
of cockerels from five pounds to
seven to seven and a half pounds,
and to five and six pounds for
hens. He has done this (which is
distinctive) without crossing
from a pure strain.
