The majority of us, while progressive and
liberal in early life, become more or less
conseiwative as we grow older. We have dif

However, Justice Holmes ha.s more than
kept his mind in tune with the march of
progress. He has proved himself a liberal in
a day when conservative opinion is radical
compared with what was considered liberal
ism in the da\ s of his young manhood.
The influence of Justice Holmes upon the
Supreme court has been wholesome.

$10,000, and the time required is nine years.
“The country doctor’s lot is not a tempting
one.” Editor Cathcart ad'mits. “The grocer and
the butcher and the coal dealer can cancel a cus
tomer’s credit if they don’t get their money, but
the doctor is helpless. When a call comes he
must go. He may know that the patient will never
pay him. No matter! winter and summer, day ot

The Greensboro News goes on to say
that “if a single death or, even illness, re

Daily News hopes that somebody will face
a jury composed of relief gardeners.”

out and half sick! . . . But whatever the circum-

Mr. Cathcart suspects that country people
might do a good deal themselves to make the
country doctor’s life more attractive. “For one
thing, they should take a more sympathetic atti
tude toward their doctor’s money problems. Aft
er, all, a doctor has got to get along, just like
anybody else. He doesn’t ask his debtors to
