Our Compliments to Amelia Folks are gettirr peevish and there's - no telling what the[y might do if things There have been some flying "stunts" don't come to a head pretty soon. since Col. Lindbergh made his great solo :o: flight to Paris just five years ago, which looked to non-flyers like sheer foolhardi- [ ness. Lots of people who hadn't taken THF ?vy OF LIFE [ the pains to really master the art of flying have taken their lives in their hands, and sy Sru rtn many have lost them, seeking for glory to WHY MEN DIE which they were not entitled. Amelia Earhart Putnam, the first Among the men whose friendship I en- woman to fly alone across the Atlantic, joyed was the lata C. W. Barron, owner knew exactly what she was about.

She that he was sick in New York and wished has the same cool-headed judgment that to see me before he died. 7 Col. Lindbergh has, and went through a I hurried home by the fastest train, but when I reached his hotel ! discovered that he had given up all idea of dying. He was in bed, but he was telephoning, dic- tating, receiving visitors, and having, a glorious time. He: had been close enough to eternity, however, so that the experience left a deep impression. When his secretary went out of the room, we talked about Death. He told me two stories. The first was Ireland entirely. The feat of this American girl proves, among other things, that a woman can do pretty nearly anything a man can do, which we knew already. It proves, how- ever, that a skilled, well-trained flyer is not in great danger even if the plane mis- behaves. It was pointed out not long ago that more than half the flying fatalitie are due to unlicensed pilots flying unlic- ensed planes. More than a hundred times as many persons are killed in automobiles accidents than in flying accidents, annual- ly. Amelia Putnam's success will doubtless start many other young women to take up flying. That is all to the good. Fifty years lowing wind, she ran into storms and a about a man who accumulated a large for- wind that blew- her off her course so far tune, built a house on Fifth Avenue, put that it was only luck that she didn't miss his feet on the window-sill, and said- know how to drive a car. i :0 : Stay On The Job,:Congress # Somebody whose familiarity with fig- ures is on a larger scale than ours has esti mated that the uncertainty as to what Congress is goin to do about taxes and economics is costing the people of the United States a hundred million dollars It isn't costing us, personally, that "Now, I am going to enjoy myself." But he was like a watch spring which has been wound up tight for a long time, and, be- in. suddenly released, snaps in pieces. After only a f" months of idleness he died. The second story had been told to Bar- ran by a noted surgeon. A woman, taken to the hospital for a slight operation, diotl almost before the anesthetic was ap- plied. The surgeon could not understand it. On lookinginto her history, he discov- ered that frdrn the minute the opePation was decided upon she had begun to pre- pare for the worst. She had made her will, given away her jewels, and divided her personal property. from now the young ma or the young ffhe surgeon said: "That taught me a woman who don't knoW how to fly will lesson.

Barron said that by the degree of their courage and faith men themselve deter- mine how long they will live. I believe that is true---that those; live who want to live; that when interest ceases, the haart stops. Monesquieu re- marked that "the love of study is almost course for the future. Any decision is better than no decision. The nation has been kept in suspense too long already. We know of some and hear of many more industries and business en- terprises which are merely marking time until they find out what the new tax bill I The Family Doctor[ John Joseph Gaines, M D ABOUT AN OLD FRIEND In  paper this ,nornin I read that morecoffee has ben used in the past year than for some years before--that coffee-drinking is on the increase. This item did not distress me at all. It did not mean to me that our people are determined to commit suicide, but that people are coming back to the honest old heart tonic in these days when hearts: are taxed. Many folks blame coffee for fatalities that are caused by thei rexcessive indul- gence in highly-seasoned foods, exces- sOs of sugars and rich cakes, and ponder- ous quantities of half-ray meats. Over- loading, at six o'clock dinners and feasts, formandizing to the point of gluttony-- these activities play the deuce with art- eries and "blood-pressure," and honest old coffee too often gets the blame. is going to be like. If it puts on one kind of a tax, they will have to do business this way" if it is another sort of tax, then they'll hax, e to do it another way. Mean- time, it is only the part of prudence for business men so situated to sit tight and do nothing, rather than take the chance of doing the wrong thing. We hear that the bankers are com- plaining t h,t there is not enough demand for business loans for productive enter- prises to enable them to lend out safely' tho money they are holding. We are a- t::re won't be much of a demand until business knows where it is at with ct to ta(s. Our observation is that ress is showing a prty good spirit, considering that this is a presidential ar and most of the members are usual- concerned more with the. elections than are with the public welfare.

BY THE SKIPPER PONG--HelIo, Ping. PIICr--Hello, Pang. Where you going With that lawnmower? PONG---This ain't a lawnmower. PING--What is it then? PONG---Its an instrument or tor- ture. PING--How do you figure that? PONG--WelI, first its an instru- ment of torture to the fellow who pushes one. PING--Yes, i can understand that. PONG--And then its a torture to the fellow whose neighbor gets up at 5 a. m. and starts his old worn out machine to making hay right un- der his bedroom window. PING---Pang, do you believe in that saying, "All men are born free mad equal." PON G-- Absolutely no. When lawnmowers are involved. PING--Why do you feel that way about it ? PONG---That coin must have been phrased before lawnmowers were hammered out of steel PING--You mean phrase was coin- ednot coin was phrased. PONG--WelI, whichever it is--it is. PING--How do you figure that a lawnmower disproves this free and equal theory. PONG--WeII, in the first lace [ don't approve of them. PING---Yes, I am beginning to , think you don't have very much use of them. But why? You never used to feel that way. PONG--That was before my wife got paralysis in her lefs. PING--At least that gave you a job. PONG--But I wasn't looking for a job that had any work attached to it. And another thing. PING--Well, what is it? PONGTalking about being free and equal. Why man, you are never FREE until the lam is mowed, and you never feel EQUAL to the job. PING--It sure is different than it used to be, I'll admit. PONG--You said a whole thimble- ful then. Times have sure changed. They sure have. PING---Are you still thinking a- bout that lawnmower? PONC,--Um-huh. Why before our lawnmowers were invented one could let the grass grow for several.weeks and then call uo Bill Jones and have him bring his horse over and board it for a day or two and your grass troubles were over. Boy, them was real days. PING--Those were the good old days I'll admit. PONG--um-nua. But since auto-1 mobiles don't eat anything so inex-i pensive as grass, the lawnmower is becoming more and more popular (with the lawn.) PING--Grass is a funny thing, is- n't it ? PONG--Um-huh. Its an aggravao tion to mankind. PING--What do you mean, agffm- vation ? PONG---Grass springs up over- night and is cut down by man, only to reappear the next day like a fresh crop of whiskers. PING--What was it Longfellow said about grit PONG---Oh, that fellow. He sure had the right idea. PING--What do you mean, right idea ? PONG--Here's the poem that made hm famous: Grasses are green, And roses are red, But as for me I'd rather lie in bed. (Continued Next Week) MT. PULASKI THEATRE  SUN.-MON..

Pulaski Lincoln It Business Is Held Back by Rate Chaos SHIPPERS CAN DEPEND ON RAIL SERVICE AND Reguiatio of rail rates may be irksome at tmes, la it serves one outstanding good purpose; it makes the rail rate a dependable factor ,n business, Rail rates must be published and strictly adhered to. Every shiptr knows what his rate is and what his competitors' rates are and can act accordingly. This is not the case with less regu- lated forms of transportation. Some have Published rates to which they adhere, but most of them are under no such COmpulsion. The results are economic chaos, dis- ruption in business, another ,Jstable factor to COmplicate competition and retard the return of normal times. This much can be agreed: if regu- lation of rail rates iS a good thiPg, equal regulation of rates for all other transportation is a good thing. Constructive criticism and tions are invited.
