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.

And Cuffy struck out at his friend. But to his surprise he didn't succeed in touching Pete at nil. Instead, he ie ceived a stinging slap rght on the end of his nore. Cuffy didn't like that. In fact it made him somewhat angry. And he struck out at Pete ouce more. But Pete dodg ed; and he gave Cuffy a good, ham blow in the eye. And while Cuffy was holding onto his poor eye, Pete hit his all. Eut Fete gave him a terrible poke right in the stomach, and Cuffy sat down quickly on the ground and be gan to groan, Pete sit down on the ground too and he looked at Cuffy and grinned. "Want any more?" he asked. Cuffy shook his head. "I'll have to go home now," he sata. "Of course. I'd like to box some more; but I haven't time to-day." "First lesson's over, then," Pete an nounced.

"You're a naughty little bear and you're going straight to bed. Who has been playing with you?" she asked. Mi's. Bear was much displeased when she learned about Cuffy'a new friend. "I know who he Is," she said "His people are very rough. They're not nice bears at all. And I forbid you ever to play with Peter again." I So Cuffy had to go to bed. And the next day when Pete arrived at the the ment The matter agreed upon represents a new departure in co-operation oe tween corporate industry and the gov ernment. And as it is a sincere desire on the part of the packers to aid tn directing public thought to whole hearted -consideration of constructive efforts in readjustment to normal con dtiions. the agreement deserves unpre- ludice analysis and consideration. A few editors refer to this agreement j as a "surrender" on the part of the ' packers, and Intimate that the latter must have been guilty or they woua not have compromised. Swift & com pany entered this agreement, not be-' cause of any fear of an adverse decis ion in the courts, for there has been no violation of the law but because we realized that a- deep-rooted fear had been developed in the public mind against one organization's or smart . group's handling many lines, of com-1 peting iood products and, we realized that even if we were acquitted by the court after a long and costly proceed ing, this favorable decision would do little to counteract this prejudice and blind fear in the public mind.

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.
