SPECIALISTS IN HUMAN ILLS
Some More or Less Sage Reflections
on the Subject of Diseases and
Dentists now cure rheumatism, dys
pepsln, kidney trembles, sore eyes nnd
corns by pulling, filling or otherwise
maltreating the teeth. Stomach spe
cialists relieve toothache by treating
tho digestion, Ileudachcs have noth
ing to do with the head, except to
mako It hurt; the seat of their opera
tions Is In the stomach or liver. The
whole body seems to be merely a eys-
' tern of Interlocking directorates, tho
Philadelphia Ledger comments.
Why, then, one is inclined to ask, do
we have specialists? If tho functions
of the body, instead of being a system
of such complete entanglements and
inter-relations from head to foot, were
really divided up Into watertight com
partments, then specinllstic treatment
would Indeed be Indicated.' In that
caso euch specialist would have his
awn compartment to look after, with
a sign upon the membrane which
marks tho entrance to his domain,
"Trespassers will be prosecuted." But
what are you going to do with u body
in which nephritis Is directly caused by
nn ulcerated tooth which the dentist
hasn't discovered, nnd tho legs swell
up and becomo useless becauso there
is an unlocatcd Intestinal kink? It
would really seem thnt before a mun
is fitted to operate as a specialist on
any part of the body ho must have
specialized a while ever every other
part of It so that the East side doc
tor's sign, "Specialist in All Diseases,"
need not bo regarded as so absurd
after all. Tho first qualfflcatlon of a
good specialist Is to be an all-around
But at present the dentist has the
advantage over all other specialists.
Give him a chance to pull out every
tooth In your head nnd you will bo do

other kind of dlscnso. But what will

FLYERS TO HUNT OUTLAWS
Cotton Plantations Planted In Defiance
of Authority Seen Easily
From the Air.
The department of agriculture has
adapted the alrplano to its needs, and
plans to have a large fleet of ma
chines to serve the farmer, lumberman
and" orchnrdlst during the nest six
months, according to an announcement
from Washington recently, says tho
San Francisco Chronicle. The ma
chines will be used to find forest fires,
map out forest and other surveys and
to act as detectives to find outlaw
cotton planters in Texas, Arizona nnd
Lieutenant Compere nt Ellington n
year ago investigated the cotton situ
ation. Owing to danger of nn inva
sion of pink bollworm from Mexico it
wns necessary to create restricted
safety zones where no cotton could be
grown. Certain outlaw plnnters in
lnnd surrounded by heavy forests have
defied the government and planted in
these districts, which aro difficult to
find. The young Callfornlnn took a
camera with him, cruised over the for
ests at a 7,000-foot altitude, and
snapped seven outlaw fields. The
fields were destroyed. Compere has
been released from service nnd will
soon return to California to organize
the agricultural aviation scout work on

Experiments of the bureau of ento

agriculture, have demonstrated that

siderable killing effect upon young
larvae. It did not prevent the hatch

Ho wns full of patriotism, was tho

doughboy gladdened his wandering
eyes. Tho boy was acting ns convoy
