JAZZ is a word so newly coined that it does not appear
in the latest dictionaries. . It is applied to rythmic
clamor produced by a medley of more or less discordant
musical instruments.' Apparently there is little attempt
at harmony and none at melody. The blatant jars and
discords are popularly supposed to add pep to the noise,
The jazz is a relapse to the barbaric music of prim
itive peoples. It can be heard in the wilds of Africa as
the natives beat their tom-toms and whang their crude
musical instruments. To it the South Sea islanders writhe
their sensuous contortions and the dancing girls of the
orient sinuously whirl. Even the American Red-Skin
galloped his tribal dances to a stately iazz.
The jazz has succeeded rag-time as the popular music,
and like it is a jungle gift from the American negro. Nat
urally, as it degraded music from civilized to savage stand
ards, it has lowered the dance to vulgarity, a source of
disgust to the spectator and frequently debasement to the
participant, lhe jazz dance is a discord in civilized so
ciety, though harmonizing well with the jungle.
The popularity of the jazz is symptomatic of the
times. It reflects the ppopular unrest a.nd discontent, the
breaking away from established standards and the return
to the primitive in the search for the new. After the
strain of five years of fighting, the world has a bad case
of "nerves" and the noise of jazz succeeds the noise of
battle, for music has lost its charms in the discord of war.
The jazz is not confined to music. We have it pop
ularized'as "futurism" in art, a crazy attempt to out do
the aboriginal in primitiveness. We have it popularized
in politics as Bolshevisms fantastic and frenzied effort to
turn society upside down and elevate brawn by decapitat
ing brains. We have it popularized in business in the al
most universal profiteering of the money-mad. We have
it in industry in the frequency of needless strikes. We
have also the jazz in the United States senate in the brain
storm over the league of nations and the unending clamor
of abuse hurled at the President. Let us hope as conditions
return to the normal, the jazz will go the way of the rag.

To Drive Out Catarrh
The Trouble I la tha Blood.
summer catarrh, with its nause
ous discharge, stuffed up glands,
- difficult breathing, and summer
colds, is bad enough, but the worst
of it is yet to come if you neglect
to check the growth that is form
ing to attack you with ten-fold
greater power during the winter.
That's why it is so important to
treat catarrhs and other blood dis
orders with S. S. S: during warm
weather, and thus free the system
from all impurities.
It is now an established fact
that catarrh is in the blood and
that lotions and salves do not give
relief. The experience of others
has proven that S. S. S. strikes at
the very root of the trouble and
eliminates it. Waste no time in
this matter, for it is of the utmost
importance. Write to Our Medical
