A DODular reaction aeainst the national prohibition amend
ment and the Volstead enforcement act is sweeping the east and
despite efforts of politicians to sidestep the issue, prohibition
promises to be an important factor in both the national conven
tions. In fact the prediction is made that, now that the saloon
has been permanently banished and the brainless, sordid and
soulless liquor traffic out of the way, that prohibition will be
the division line between the two great parties, which in the past
have never committed themselves on this question, and a national
referendum be forced.
Under the prohibition amendment, congress is given the
power to define what constitutes alcoholic beverages, and it has
done this with the Volstead act placing the limit of alcohol at
one-half of one percent. The dry amendment, however, gives tne the tooth pcixer.
states concurrent jurisdiction with the national government and - J"unr Rabbit was always cluing-
various states have proceeded to enact laws increasing the amount
of alcohol to permit the manufacture of light wines and beers, and
the validity of these statutes is now before the federal supreme
court for final determination.
The Anti-Saloon League drive for a 25 million dollar fund to
aid the enforcement of prohibition m America and to make the
world dry met with a disastrous failure m its initial effort con
ducted from Atlanta in the banner southern dry states and the
campaign closed with a deficit and a set back that may cause
the abandonment of the campaign in the rest of the nation, as
the people refued to put up their dollars. v
Rhode Island and other states are attacking the constitution
ality of the dry amendment in the federal supreme court on the
ground that it usurps police power and other inherent state rights
guaranteed under the constitution.
New Jersey has challenged the authority of congress under
the "concurrent power" clause of the 18th amendment by enact
ing a law for the manufacture and sale of 3.5 percent beer. A
federal court in Wisconsin has upheld the validity of the 2.5 per
cent beer act in that state.
The New York democratic state convention declared "we are
utterly opposed to prohibition by federal amendment" and the
New York Assembly has ordered a probe of the political activities
of the Anti-Saloon League which "put over" the prohibition law
without a popular vote on the subject. Governors of Vermont,
New York, New Jersey and other states have come out against
prohibition and in recent elections held, most of the towns and
villages of Vermont and Massachusetts have reversed their
former policy and voted wet as a protest against the national
dry law.
The New York World summarizes the situation thus : '
The sentiment against Prohibition by Federal amendment is increasing,
not diminishing. It will continue to Increase until this question "finds its
way to the ballot-box. There never was a greater piece of political folly
than that of the Prohibition lobby arid its subservient politicians when they
assumed that the Constitution of the United States could be revolutionized,
,the police powers of the Stntes destroyed, the personal habits of all American
kittens regulated from Washington and the most elementary rights denied
by statute, without ever permitting the American people to have a vote on
the new form of government to which they were to be subjected.
Whatever the courts may finally decide in regard to the validity of the
Eighteenth Amendment and the Volstead Enforcement Law, the court of
lust resort in all such oases Is the people themselves, and they have begun
to speak.

bo stated,
Records of the state treasurer's office shows that since last
August $1,770,605.59 of public money in the industrial accident,
segregated accident, and catastrophe funds, have been invested
in interest bearing bonds with a par value of $1,679,241.45.
These bonds were purchased at a premium (above par) of
$91,634.04 from bond houses, though in nearly all cases the bonds
brought less than par to the communities issuing them. The
interest rate varies from 5 to 6 percent, averaging about 5 14
percent. Of these purchases, 74 percent were made from Morris
Bros, bonds with par value of $1,248,629.09 being purchased for
$1,327,436.37. Twenty-six percent of the purchases were divided
between seven other bond houses.
The treasurer's books show for the Segregated Accident
fund that during the four previous years bonds of a par value of
$1,337,014.44 were purchased for $1,331,781.23 at $5,233.21 less
than face value, though these bonds brought a lower rate of in
terest. Many were purchased directly from the communities is
suing them and only a small brokerage fee was allowed when the
purchase was made through bankers.
It is apparent that the same principle carried out during the
past year would have resulted in a considerable saving to the
state for most of the issues were secured by the bond houses
at less than par and resold the state at a premium, which added
to the commissions, made a fat thing f?r the bond houses.
The grand jury will probably not only investigate the char
acter of the investments but endeavor to ascertain the reasons
for the change in policy of buying directly below par to buying
through brokers at a premium.

one day he told his mother that he

So Jimmy had to think of something
else. i
Now, he had heard that there were
places where one could go to have a
tooth pulled. And it seemed to him
that it must be very pleasant to pull
teeth and he saw no reason why he
need wait until he grew up, either. He
saw no reason why he should not be

outside the hollow stump he nailed

Poland, according to recent cable from Colonel Gilcrist of the
United States army is experiencing the worst typhus fever epi
demic in the history of the world, which unless blotted out at
once, threatens all Europe an emergency that the government,
of Poland is unable to cope with for lack of financial resources
and sanitary- supplies. The epidemic is in its fourth year, and
has increased in intensity with each year, due to the influx of
refugees and war prisoners from Russia, where Bolshevik armies
are ridding themselves of typhus cases by sending them in ar
mored cars to the Polish border and turning them adrift.
The victims, without any kind of medical care, lack food and
shelter and are dying by . thousands, their bodies being piled in
great heaps awaiting burial. Whole towns and districts are crip
pled by the disease and business practically suspended. There are
few doctors and no nurses, and the country left devastated and
devoid of materials by the successive occupation of various ar
mies. Famine stalks the land.
The only method of sending relief to these sufferers is by
means of food drafU now on sale by leading banks upon the
United States Grain Corporation. These drafts are handled by the
banks without charge to the customers, and will insure the deliv
erance of food to the stricken people.
Rippling Rhymes
I am tired of boiled potatoes, I am tired of prunes and slaw; I
am tired of stewed tomatoes, and of predigested straw. And the
dame who cooks the vittles sheds a sad, discouraged sigh, as she
takes her knife and whittles apples for the daily pie. All our
lives we are repeating ancient mealtime stunts, by jings; one
grows tired at last of eating, as he tires of other things. Once
the horn that sounds for dinner made my pulses travel fast ? oh,
it seemed a four-time winner when I heard its welcome blast; like
a kangaroo I sprinted,' from the distant field I flew, when that
brazen trumpet hinted that the pork and beans were due. But
my tummy then was younger than it e'er will be again, and it
knew the pangs of hunger that are felt by husky men. That was
in a season oldcnjon a happy vanished day, when my sideboards,
bright and golden, showed no gizzled strands of gray. Oh, the
years are short and fleeting, they have flown on whizzing wings;
When I arrived at my room I look
ed eagerly at the floor as I opened the
door to see if any letters had been put
under it while I was away.. There was
no sign of one.
My eyes moved about the room
hoping to find that some, servant had
picked up my correspondence and
placed It somewhere for safekeeping.
In a moment I had pounced quickly
upon a little bundle of unopened en
velopes that the maid had laid upon
my writing desk.
There was nothing, however, from

If I returned to him now he might
always think that I only came back
because I had spent all my money. I
was determined that cost me what it
might, I would not return to John
on any other conditions than those
under which I had married him.
John Gordon must want me, want mo
ns badly as he did when he persuaded
me to undertake a runaway marriage
with him.
Getting Along Very Well.
Up to date, however, he seemed to
be getting along very well without
me, and my heart stopped beating as
the thought came to me that he might
be glad that I was away.
Tears were very near my eyelids
and to distract my thought (for I had
determined that John Gordon should
never make me weep again) I ran
over my letters again, and opened
one from my cousin Charles.
"Your mother and I will join you
shortly," ran a paragraph in his let

ouija board again, and as It always
pictures you In great trouble, sho is

down to Atlantic City, where ouija

although I did not mean to, but of
course you know that we who love
you can not be deceived. We know
that you have found unhapplness
where you expected happiness).
"Your mother opened her heart to
me last night and said that she
thought your marriage to John was
a mistake, and she was sure that you
were grief-stricken. 'I must go to her,
Charles', she said, 'because I do not

Frisky Squirrel had lost one of his
sharp, white teeth. But Frisky didn't

and he sat down and told Jimmy

So Jimmy Rabbit stepped up to
