DRUGGED OR DRUGLESS.
The drugless healers had a convention in Atlantic
City recently, and they declared war against the American
Medical Society and all.its scientific allies.
The convention has changed its name from the Na
tional Association of Drugless Physicians to the Nation
al Association of Drugless Practitioners.
The organization purposes, though an appeal to the
supreme court, to prove "that this country is not ruled
by a medical oligarchy," says Dr,.Willard Carver, of Ok
lahoma City. " v , -. . ,
"The American Medical Association has seized the
opportunity to exploit systems )f healing unheard of in
their brutal harshness, and adventurers with terrorism
as their only weapon have usurped the chief power in
many of the states ,and are defiling the bodies of the peo
ple and plundering and destroying at will, with their
poisonous medicines and vaccines," says another drugless
' Is it as bad as all that?
Of course these poisonous medicines and vaccines
have sayed millions of people from death by diptheria,
tvphoidand small pox, but at what risk of their lives!
The "drugless healed" is starting out upon a long
road when, through the supreme court, or any other
agency, he seeks to abridge the laws which safeguard the
health of the people, or tries to discredit the trained doc
tor of medicine who practices only after long study and
careful examination and with a license from his state

' SEPTEMBER AGAIN. ,
Oh, cut out the sighing, for summer is dying, Septem

for an inning, and August is pulling its freight. The'sum
mer's a season that's based upon reason, it's good for the
corn and the wheat; without it the granger would soon be
a "Stranger, and we would have nothing to eat. The sum

fail to produce; and so we must bear it, this season of
merit, while sizzling away in our juice. Although it is
splendid we're glad when-it's ended, we're tired of its
charms, we admit; with laughter we wriggle, we dance
and we giggle, when summer goes lickety-split. Our noses
are roasted, our whiskers are toasted, we're baked and
we're poached and we're fried; we long for cool breezes,
and Autumn, she eases the burden to which we've been
tied. Oh, welcome, September! I seem to remember we
had a September last year; and she was a hummer that
followed the summer and filled our old bosoms with
cheer. Oh, she was a daisy with distances hazy and
zephyrs that hinted of frost, with nights that were chilly
not sizzling and silly; I boost her, regardless of cost.

Hunting A Husband
BY MABY DOUGLAS . -
THB LESSON ,
IT IS TO LAUGH.
A clear idea of the worth and weight of most of the
arguments which are being advanced to delay and defeat
ratification of the peace treaty in the senate is to be gain
ed from a perusal of the speech made by Senator Knox
before that body yesterday. '
Declaring that "it is a hard and' cruel peace which this
treaty stipulates," but taking; care to safeguard his own
repudiation a patriotic American by adding that he
has no objections to its being so, Knox asserts that he sees
no reason why we, "who do not partake in its spoils should
become parties to its harshness and cruelty." In short,
because the United States stands in no way to gain finan
cially, or territorially by the terms of the treaty with Ger
many, Senator Knox is willing that the United States
should scorn her duty to participate in the enforcement
of decrees to punish Germany, who drew this country in
to the most bloody struggle in history, for. her past crimes
and safeguard the world from future, oiiij-kges at her
hands. V ' -;s
; The idea is too ridiculous to receive serious consider
ation, but it is a fair sample of the. arguments, which are
being presented to defeat the treaty and discredit the man
and the administration which negotiated it.1 -Knox might
as well argue that the state of Oregon should not prose
cute a murderer, because it does not benefit financially in1
his conviction and punishment, arid expect the public to do
other than laugh at him.
THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
After all, it is possible that the treaty of peace will
be accepted, or rejected by the people of the United States
It is growing daily more evident that the Republi
cans in the senate may succeed in their disastrous plan
to make the question of ratifying the pact unamended a
party issue and by that method prevent adoption of the
pact as it now stands. It is more than probable that the
vote when it is finally taken will be along strict party
lines, with the exception of a few Republicans who refuse
to sacrifice the national good for the sake of making po
litical capital, and insecure capital at that.
Arid it is equally evident what President Wilson plans
to dev He has placed at the disposal of the senate all
available information and imperative reasons why the
treaty should be ratified unamended and at once. The
responsibility now lies with the senate. But anticipating
the possibility that the treaty may be returned to him so
amended as to desetroy its effective value, or hinder its
execution he is preparing to further safeguard it and the
ideals which it champions. He has, to all intents and
purposes, washed his hands of the petty scrap which op
position in the senate insists upon maintaining and is
carrying the entire facts regarding the treaty and its
making directly to the people. Should the senate refuse
his request of ratification without amendment, it follows
that he will refuse his signature and approval to the docu
ment until the people of the country have expressed their
wishes in the matter through the polls in the coming elec
Hazarding a guess as to whether or not the people
would ratify the treaty without "reservation", we f orse
a rocky road to the White House for the candidate of a
certain aspiring political organization.
Tom would nut come down to my stu
dio. ' ' '
"I liad enough of that pink ink stuff
m my clerking days,'.' he saidr Vyou
come with me, Sara :,arid we'll have a
jolly little dinner together."
It will be nice ;to see -Tom. . I hau
searched around to show my studio to
someone. 1 thought Tom would be the
most impressed. If I cannot show him
my studio, at least I shall give him sonic
of my ideas!
I went up town to meet him. We were
to meet iu the lounge There was Tom,
waiting for me, He is rather nice and
big. Too, he has a hearty way of taking
j our nana. JNo nonsense about Torn.
, noon we were sitting together at a
little table by the windows. II was nice
to look out on the lighted avenues. To
see the motors flashing by.
I was afraid that our first moments
would be awkward. For I had not seen
nun since mis nroKi'ii engagement. 1 re
called vividly the scene in which Tom
took the amethyst riig from Jeanne.
But he did not speak of himself. Nor
his afafirs. -He
wanted to know about me. "Itow
was it that I was in Washington
Square?" I told him of John Carewc
a'ud Norma, his sister. That Xonr.a had
round the room for mo my studio. Of
the new people I had met.
"What are you doing; there, any way.
Sara?" said Tom leaning baek in his
chair a id looking at 111c across the roses.
" What was I doing there? I knew very
well. But I eoitld pot toll Tom that I
was searching for a husband.
I blushed. '
' (letting atmosphere I see," said
Tom .filling in the awkward pause.
We spoke of mother and Aunt Emily.
Yes, I missed mother dreadfully.
"Why don't you run out and sso yout
Aunt Emf " Tom asked. - l
But I am 011 more important business
meat than running ou '.to see jay; rela
tives. ; ; : 5 .;,
As we sat drinking our' deiui tasso,
Tom said, "Do you mind, Sara! " And
he opened his cigarette case. It lay on
the table. Under cover of the roses 1
reached over. I extracted one. With
awkward fingers I was attempting to
light it,, v,,'
Tom was glancing over the roonu Ho
looked at me now. He skw the cigarette
in my trembling fingers.
T "Skra," ho said, "put that down!" I
held it still. He leaned over, took the
cigarette, iu his hand. Extinguished it.
Then ho looked at me.
.. "I nover thought, Sam "
"Oh, Tom," 1 said, "those old fogy

Lane, smoking does not go with your

What- would your mother say if she
could sec you?';'
In-spite of my' emancipated ideas, I
flushed. . ' . '
. We rose, from the table. As we made
our way ofit to the lighted nvc'iue, Tom
said, "You must promise me, Sara, that
this is the last timet"
I heard a faint voice, which I hardly
recognized as my own; saying, "I mill.''
