of conscience and conviction and are less concerned with
the country's welfare tnan with spoils.
The only policy the republican politicians have had
the past year is to discredit President Wilson, to belittle
the winning of the war, and by refusing to enact recon
struction legislation and ratify the peace treaty, encour
age the spread of discontent and economic unrest to cre
ate a state of public mind that will insure republican suc
cess. Hence the dodging of issues and the incessant ap
peal to racial animosities and partisan prejudice.
Nor are the democratic politicians any better off.
They have followed Wilson's leadership, not enthusiastic
ally, or from principle, but f rom expediency. Now that the
president has been stricken with illness, their division and
lack of leadershp is apparent. The democratic party was
created to resist centralistic tendencies, to preserve indiv
idual liberties guaranteed under the Bill of Eights, and
these ideals still animate the rank and file of the party,
but find no echo among the democratic politicians, whose
eyes are glued to the pie-counter.
As at present organized, both, parties have outlived
their usefulness, because the professional politicians are
concerned only with division of spoils and campaign con
tributions tor their sham battle. And this condition has
bred a popular distrust in politicians and the time is ripe
for a political upheaval in one or both parties or the cre
ation of a third that will sweep both to defeat.

associates extending over twenty
seven years! " Instead of one man
practicing in a small way in a small .

large offices, where there is room
for complete equipment.
Some of the System dentists extract teeth, some fill
teeth, some make crowns and bridges, some make arti
ficial plates and some treat diseased teeth. In this way
each patient is cared for by a dentist who is experienced
in the kind of work each patient needs.
Dental work done in this manner is not only done bet
ter, but in less time, making fewer visits necessary, and
the saving in time helps to make prices lower.
