Is a bad back wearing you out? Are
you lame, achy, nervous and depressed?
Suffer headaches; dizziness and dis

are often signs of kidney disorder and
too dangerous to neglect. Your kidneys
keep the blood stream pure. Once they
slow up, poisons accumulate and upset
the whole system. Why riek neglect?
If you suspect your kidneys, give Doatl's

“A letter which I read in the paper
about Carter’s Little Liver Pills fitted
my own case so closely that I could
not help trying them and am very
happy I did.” So writes Mr. Frank J.
Trumbull of Jersey City, N. J., whose
letter goes on to say, “I had heard
about Carter’s Little Liver Pills for
yearn but never knew they helped over
come poor appetite and sour stomach,
until I read about another man in the
same plight who took Carter’s with
good results. I tried them and can
honestly say that they freed me of
nasty gas on stomach, so that I can
now eat without getting bilious, and
they improved my appetite fulb' 100%.
You can rest assured that from now on
I will boost Carter’s Little Liver Pills
whenever I can.”

The communist member of parlia
ment, Saklatvala, is one of the Brit
ish delegation to the parliamentary
conferences at Washington. Saklat
vala in a public speech said, among
other things, this of the British flag:
“The Unioa Jack is the symbol of
enslaved labor all over the world. It
is the weapon with which the worker
is down trodden. In the name of the
British worker I demand that the
Union Jack shall cease to function. I
say, let us abolish the Union Jack.”
Suppose a communist or socialist
member of our congress said that
about the Stars and Stripes. What
would happen to him? Would he be
sent as a member of a congressional
delegation to London, or would he
be sent to the morgue?
The British are a queer people and
allow Britons to think what they like,
and “say” what they like. Tnat’s
one reason why they go on adding to
their empire, and one reason why
King George and his family still hold
the throne. They find it wise to let
men think and talk.
If Saklatvala tried to pull down the
Union Jack, they would put him in
jail quickly enough. The queer Brit
ish, although they haven't any con
stitution with free speech it it, seem
to take free speech seriously. We,
presumably more enlightened, have
free speech in our constitution, but
forbid it in practice.

Legal Experts of Europe Prepare
Way for Rhine Security Measures
From the Indianapolis News
Legal experts, representing France, Great Britain, Belgium
and Italy on one side and Germany on the other have gathered at
London to prepare the way for a conference concerning security
along the Rhine. With their deliberations completed, a matter of
probably not more than a week, a call is forecast for a meeting
probably to be held in October to consider the making of the agree
ment. In the meantime the sixth assembly of the League of Na
tions opens on September 7 at Geneva, where the problem of se
curity in Europe seems certain to be discussed. Since all plans for
the Rhine pact include making the league an integral part of its
machinery, the assembly gathering and the security proposal are
bound together and add to the importance of the events of the next
Whether much can be done is doubtful but there are unmis
takable signs- that more hope exists than at any time in the last
seven years. It appears to be taken for granted that Germany
will become a member of the league, as she must if the Rhine pact
is to exist in the form now contemplated. Moreover, there is
growing support within that country in favor of the course, the
argument being that the Berlin government will be in a better po
sition to bring forward certain treaty revisions and boundary ad
justments. The fact that the league assembly will meet in advance
of the prospective security conference may defer the German ap
plication for membership until outlines of the situation are better
So numerous are the cross currents always present in Europe
that untoward circumstances may arise to interfere with the pres
ent plans. It is fitting that the Rhine, for centuries a stream that
has seemed to carry always an ominous warning of conflict, should
now be the center of efforts that would make of it a river of peace.
If the parleys that are considering the subject are successful, arbi
tration treaties between Germany and Poland and Germany and
Czecho-Slovakia ought to be made easier. That is extremely im
portant in considering the future of the continent. It is in the east
quite as much as in the west, that the danger of a rupture in the
European concert is possible.

That statement, shocking to good
prohibitionists, confirms what Thom
as Jefferson said more than 100 years
ago. He urged congress to en
courage light wine and beer in
order to get rid of whisky, which,
said he, kills half of our men and
ruins their families. Prohibition has
succeeded in getting rid of light wine
and beer, not of whisky. But, it has
been on trial a short time only.

A child's original conception of wliat

the object lesson Frank Abbott King,
age four, son of John King, federal
prohibition agent, learned recently, ac
cording to the Indianapolis Star.
Frank Abbott was pinying In the
hack yard of his home and feasting
on sweet, ripe, juicy pears which had
fallen to the ground. He picked up
one that had a bee on it and the boy
became aware with frightful sudden
ness that he had been stung on one of
bis lingers. It being Ills first experi
ence with a bee sting, Frank Abbott
yelled, inspected the injured and rap
idly swelling linger and then, crying,
ran to his mother for first aid.
“Oh, mother," he cried, “a bee stung
me and left Ids leg In my linger.”
