The Pawhuska Capital defines a pessimist as a person who is

"Spring is nearly here. Good old-time Presbyterians will good be
giving their kiddies sulphur and molassrs, while the Baptists ana Meth-
odists will dose their children on sassafras tea," says the Clinton
An exchange says: "The most contemptible slacker this country
holds is the man who began to yell for the U. S. to gc to war weeks be-
fore we did and then grafted on the government in shoes, lumber, am-
munition, meats, etc., as well as on the people. He would take hit
gun and kill a bank robber and smile about it afterwards, while at the
same time planning how he can graft his thousands by any means in-
side the law." '
That America's great farm industry has for years been and is now
being exploited, is a fact which is finally beginning to penetrate public
consciousness. Luckily a most effective remedy is at hand in the bill
providing for clearly establishing the legal right of 'farm organizations
to mirket their products co-operatively. The Salvation of the farming
industry can be worked out no other way.
Writing on the suggestion that Clara Smith will sell the story of
life of shame to the movies. Edith Johnson says:
Suppose Clara Smith does sell her life story to the movies, she has
-everything to gain frnd nothing to lose,'' 1 heard someone remark the
other day. Most emphatically I differ from that speaker. By taking
such a course, Clara Smith has everything to lose and nothing to gain.
To be sure she will gain some money, but what is the gain of money in
comparison with the loss of character? What will it profit her to make
a few more thousands, if having her life exploited, she will become the
means of dragging down other souls? For the power of suggestion is
tremendous, and the capitalization of sin, the making of it attractive
and alluring is one of the greatest perils of modern life.
Clara Smith is a good stenographer. She is a clever business woman.
Let us hope that if she goes free, she will make her future life one of
■ cons ructive influence, not one that will destroy.
The question of a world's disarmament is being discussed very freely,
as a means to prevent further wars. That the world has had enough
of bloody strifes and turmoil is very evident. The New York Evening
"'This nation's present chance is to take the leadership in a great
moral crusade for disarmament. She can do it because she has no de-
sire for seeking to conquer any one, and no one is in a position to con-
quer her. There is not a r.ation in the world except ourselves that has
all the money she needs for mere domestic development today. Cer-
tainly Japan has not got it. Much more does she lack the money to
fight us, even if she wished t > do so; *nd there is nothing in her his-
'tory to suppose she would be guilty of such madness.
"If we should take the lead in disarmament other nations would be
bound to follow. How long coild any government last among the peo-
ples who have suffered from the war that refused to profit by our exa;n-
"If we want to have a bigger Navy than Great Britain and Japan
•^jltibiTied, we can doubtless build it. We certainly have the mon*y to
build far greater armadas than either of these countries possesses. And
as we build them they will haw to try to come as near us as they can.
They will be forced more and more o consider the possibility of our at-
tacking them. Every ship that we build will not mean merely a tax on
our own heavily burdened peDple, but a tax on nearly every people in
the world. And ay sure as day follows night the issue of it will * an

Discussing the make-up of President Harding's-cabinat, the St. Loui s
'Star has this to say:
"Mersured by the tasks before it, the Cabinet straightway brings out
-two clear characteristics of the Harding administration. Its ideals are
peace and international understanding and friendship to business.
"International idealism as President Wilson represented it, has been
•supplanted by a more selfish, more nationalistic point of view, but the
naming of Hughes and Hoover is nevertheless a complete rejection of
the 'irreconciliable' attitude. It foreshadows a sincere, practical effort
to bring the United States into working relationship with the rest of the
world, whether the League of Nations changes its name or not.' It af-
fords hope of the limitation of armament.
' Of ♦ he .old progressive republican' spirit and of Mr. Wilson's cham-
pionship of human rights above property ri hts. not a trace is left With
Mr. Mellon in the TVamirv Department, Mr. Daugherty as Attorney-
Geueral. and Ssnator Fall in the Interior Department, corporatian in-
fluence will dominate the strategic places in the Cabinet.
"An apparent concession to proj.ressiveism is found in the selection
mf Il-nry C Wallace as Secretary of Agriculture. Mr. Wallace is ob-
jectionable to the packers, but his opposition to them and his claim
upon the Secretaryship are alike based on devotion to the business in
terests of the farmers. Mr, Harding's family is none the less a business
cabinet on his account.
W hy Colds are Dangerous.
It is the serious diseases that colds
lead to that makes them dangerous.
They prepare the system for the re-
ception and development of the
germs of influenza, pneumonia, tu
berculosis. dyptheria, scarlet fever,
whooping cough and measles. You
are much more likely to contract
these diseases when you have a cold.
For that reason you should get rid
of every cold as quickly as possible.

At Chairman of a Special Committee
of representative men and women of
the country, charged with placing be-
f?re the American people the deiperate
need of two and a half million Arme-
nian*, the remnant of the oldest Chris-
tian nation, whose sufferings through
sixteen centuries seem to have brought
them no nearer peace, liberty or se-
curity, I beg your personal co-opera-
tion and Influence to forward an ap-
peal for a Lenten Sacrifice Offering to
enable the Near East Relief to go on
with its work of mercy.
Over one hundred thousand little
children who have been kept alive by
American generosity for the past three I great west
years are absolutely dependent upon
the support which America gives them
through the Near East Relief.

ever worthy the other appeals which
