—We know that chronic irritations
in middle age may cause cancerous
changes. For instances, smokers’
cancer of the lip, cancer of the tongue
from broken teeth or a rough
plate, etc. But there must be some
other factors beside chronic irrita-
tion or even more would have can-
cers. What these underlying factors
are that cause the tissue cells to be-
gin to multiply, is not fully known,
but we know there must be some-
thing wrong with the chemistry of
the body.
Before the Belgian Academy of
Medicine, Sloss and Reding recently
presented researches which showed
that changes in the sugar regulatory
mechanism are manifest in a pre-can-
cerous stage. There was an over-
amount of sugar in the blood of the
cases studied. Other experiments
which have been carried on in ani-
mals, show that cancer may have
some relationship to lack of vita-
mins; therefore a prolonged incorrect
diet probably has a great deal to do
Ta this changed chemistry of the
Now another factor was brought
out by Dr. James Ewing at the Con-
ference on Cancer Control, held at
Lake Mohonk, N. Y., in 1927. It is
that lack of physical exercise tends
to development of cancer. In dis-
cussing the question, Dr. Handley, of
London, said that the lack of physi-
cal exercise caused a chronic lym-
phatic stagnation or obstruction and
this excess of lymph overnourishes
the cells, thus giving them the ten-
dency to multiply. He pointed out
that the fluid that bathes our tissues

So then, when we understand and
Practice exercise and correct diet and

ably prevent cancer, as well as many
other disorders.

KANKAKEE, I1ll.—“Fifty dollars

“Mr. Farmer, in pre-War days

from $25 to $75 more per acre than it

Snow, local farmer and banker.
Mr. Snow, one of the leading Re-
publicans in the community, points
out that farm lands on the average
are worth $50 less an acre than they
were seven years ago and calls upon
all Republicans to repudiate Hoover:
and the Coolidge policies. He said:
“Though 1 have always been a
strong Republican, I would be a sec

advantage of the farmer, during the

Farmers are now paying a tariff-pro-
tected price for nearly everything
they buy, and because of a small sur-
plus, are compelled to sell what they
produce at prices unprotected by the
cariff, for their tariff is absolutely in-
~ifective because of a small surplus.
“Nearly four years ago Mr. Coolidge
was elected President on a platform
containing a strong farmer-aid plank,
Since his election he has done noth-
ing to relieve the depressed agricul
tural conditions, but has twice vetoed
a farm-aid McNary-Haugen bill which
was backed by a 1aitel agriculture
and twice approved by Congress.
“I do not care whether you are
Catholic or Protestant, wet or dry, the
fact remains that the steady confis-
cation of farm lands is still going on
to an alarming extent. I claim that a
vote against Hoover is a vote for a
$50 average increasz in the price of
the farmer's land, anl a chance tg

Gov. Alfred E. Smith
vice president of the Lucas Paint and
‘Brush Company of Philadelphia, a
well-known Republican for fifty years,
has announced that he is “opposed to
to the election of Herbert Hoover. Hn
“I shall vote for Governor Smith be-
cause I believe his election would end
conditions which are endangering the
future of the younger generation.”

Checks for Small Amounts
There is a federal law stating tha
“no person shall make, issue, circulate.
or pay out any note, check, memoran-
dum, token, or other obligation for a
less sum than $1, intended to circulate
as money or to be received or used in
lieu of lawful money of the United
States and every person so offending
shall be fined not more than $500 or
imprisoned not more than six months,
or both, at the discretion of the court."
Many individuals, and even the gov-
ernment, make checks for an amount
less than $1, but they are not in-
tended to circulate, but are only in-
tended to pay the amount of the check
to the person the check is made pay-
| able to. A check is not lawful money
and consequently cannot be passed as
lawful money. A check is a personal
credit instrument used In place of

Won and Lost
Three young men were dining. After
the meal one of them wagered an-
other that the latter could not balance
a glass of water on each hand. The
challenge was accepted. Placing his
hand palm down, flat on the table
top the challenged one let his com-
panions place a glass of water on each
of his outstretched hands. “Easy,”
said he. “You win,” replied the other
two and they placed the meal checks
in his coat pocket and departed. Amid
the laughter of other diners, the
hoaxed youth had to invoke the aid of
a waitress before he could be relieved
of his embarrassing burden.—Boston
In Mexico
HusYands in Mexico do net
lateh keys.
When they have been out late to the
lodge they ring an electric bell or
vound on a ieavy wooden gate.
This wakes up the wife or servants
and all the neighbors, but no one kicks
very hard, for it is an ancient custom.
Mexican wives do not wait up for
their husbands to come home, armed
with rolling pins,
The husband can’t sneak upstairs
with his shoes in his hand. He makes
enough noise when he arrives to wake
up people for many blocks and then
wifey gets up and attends to his case.

want a coat with electricity in it?”
“A coat with electricity in it,” said

said that she was going to buy a coat

Odd Power Credited
to Precious Siones
Superstitions still persist about the
magical properties of many stones. i
On account of that associated with |
the opal, the proposal is frequently '
made by jewelers’ associations to re-
move it from the list of “birth stones.”
Strange places have been looked in-
to for stones possessing unusual re-
quirements. The gizzard of a rooster
is said to have revealed a stone which
rendered wives more agreeable to
their husbands; the shell of a crab
yielded a stone for sore eyes. Beads
of paste or glass were in common use
in ancient Gaul under the name of
serpents’ eggs. They were thought to
be generated from the breath of the
serpents, being shot into the air from
their hissing jaws. Soldiers wore ser-
vents’ eggs to make them invincible.
It was long believed that a sap-
phire would heal diseases of the eye:
and such a stone was once given to
the treasury of St. Paul's by a well-
meaning London g-ocer, to be used
for that purpose. There were stones
to heal wounds, to aid the complexior
and to prevent drunkenness.
St. Tsidore, bishop of Seville, is said
to have known of a stone which, when
powdered and drunk with vinegar,
made men insensible to torture. There

Life Never Alway
Sunshine or Sorrow
Life itself is short; time is fleeting:
And we should learn to accept our lot
with reasonable complacency. That
does not mean that one should sit
quietly and dumbly when beset by
crushing adversity, Make the best
possible fight against the enemy; but
in the end, after you have done your
very best, try to rest content, what-
ever the outcome may be. Sometimes
our experiences are bitter; other
times they are sweet. But if we do
our part, play the game of life intel-
ligently and honestly, we can usually
be assured of fitting rewards. And
when aflliction that we may think is
undeserved is meted out to us; we
may chafe at its hardship, though at
times it cannot be avoided, try as we
will. But whatever adversity or mis-
fortune may come to you there should
be many exquisitely delightful remem-
brances, and you should at all times
try to live within their ecstatic im-
agery.—True Story Magazine,
The Rain Gauge
The earliest rain measure, or gauge,
was irst used in Korea, in the Fif-
teenth century. Galileo, Sir Chris-
topher Wren and others experimented
with measures, but the first gauge of
which there is any authentic descrip-
tion was made in England by a Mr.
Hooke in 1695.
The rain was collected by means ox
4 funnel into a flask, weighed, and the
weight converted into inches—a differ-
ent method. It was not until 1891 that
the late G. J. Symons designed a satis-
factory pattern of gauge.
In his “storm” gauge an inch of rain
is represented by 24-inch in the tube.
Floats make reading easy. If one tube
fills it overflows and registers accu-
rately in the second.
Going Into Detail
A certain gentleman who bought a
house as close to the station as he
could possibly get it soon repented of
his choice.
The following is a letter he wrote to
the railway company complaining
about the noise made by shunting op-
erations throughout the night:
“Gentlemen, why must your engines
ding and dong and fizz and spit and
pant and grate and grind and puff and
bump and chug and hoot and toot and
whistle and wheeze and jar and jerk
and sparl and slam and throb and roar
and rattle and yell and smoke and
smell and shriek all the night long?”
Weasel Fights Pests
The weasel, whose white winter coat
forms the ermine of commerce, is
found in various forms from the Arc-
tice to the 'Tropics, says Nature
Magazine. It would seem as if na-
ture had .a mind a machine for keep-
ing in check the hordes of mice and
other rodents that without some re-
straining agency would devastate the
earth, for the weasel has been evolved
in a variety of sizes. the smallest of
which traverse with ease the burrows
of the lesser mice, while the largest
approach in size the mink and mar-
ten, and prey on larger species.
