A Stepson of Uncle Sam. .
The boast of Franklin Roosevelt,' that he
drew the constitution of Haiti and tfjat it was. a
pretty good one, is put under scrutiny by the
accusations made by President Dartigenaye of
the black republic The American civif admm'
titration is 'charged with, being more oppressive
than the military regime, and whh .failure to aid
the economc development of the country. Per-,
hape Mr. Kooseveit I constitution has not peen
observed, bu n if it had, been, its chances of
tuccess would have been no greater than any
legislation handed down from authority instead
of hiving been inspired by the dctires of the
people concerned. , t
AH around the Caribbean sea are scattered
stepsons of Uncle Sam'such as, Haiti. The pro
gram of pacification began back in the admin
istration of President 'Roosevelt, was continued
by Taft, and in spite of the previous criticisms
by the democratic party, wai practiced also un
der Mr. Wilson. In the main the problem is one
of imBuing these small countries with enough
stability that they can pay their debts Rather
than allow European nations ' to endanger the
Monroe doctrine by forcible collections ana oc
cupation of customs houses, it has been neces
sary for the United States to tep in.
The present American occupation " of Haiti
dates, from a period shortly before the war. At
that time there was evidence to support the be
lief that German and French warships were ready
for a joint expedition to collect large sums'of
money due those, countries from Hitl In the,'
interest of avoiding foreign entanglement in the
affairs of the hemisphere, the United States
stepped in to administer affairs so that this lit

MR. HARDING read from the Psalms;
"The troubles of my heart are enlarged; Q bring
me out of mv distresses. And to the listeners
the words seemed "the personal prayer of the

OUR notion of a superhuman undertaking
is to attempt to interest the people of tne united

As to what is called organic heart
disease wa have learned very little
in the last 10 years. What we

In fact, so much has been IseoV'
ered within the last doaen years that
it has become necessary to scrap
every opinion held prior to 1J08, ta
wipe tha slate clean, and to start
fresh. s '
When the blqod is pouring fnto the
heart it first reaches tne auricie,
from there ifep&ase to the ventricle,
and then into the arteries. The
heart renllv is enmnosed of two
hearts fusedogether a right heart
pumping blood to tha lungs ana a
left heart receiving blood from the
lungs and pumping It to the tissues,
The two sides qf the two hearts are
built along the same general tines.
With this let us try to find out why
and how the heart beats. .'
Dr. L. F. Bishop in his book, on
heart disease written for the lalety
compares the heart-beat to theex
plosion in an automobile cylinder.
Tha heart muscles, having rested
fraction of a second, accumulates
energy and Irritability, which, . ex
plodes after a fashion to produce
muscle contraction. .'.
The wave of contraction starts In
the upper part of tha right auricle
at a point called the slno-auricular
node. From here the wave spreads
over the auricles, and from there to
the ventricles and down to the tips
pf the heart. The wave having gone
all over tha muscle, tha bleod having
been pushed out into tne arteries,
tne neart rests ror a-traction or
second to gain new force tor tha ne:
This is What happens in a normal
heart beating quietly and normally
about 70 times a -minute. If this
regular seauence, is interfered with
tha result Is some form of irregular
ity of tha heart or pulse. .
' Dr. Bishop tells us there are seven
known varieties of irregularity. They
are Sinus arrhythmia, heart block,
