Government by Cliques
Do we have too many societies? We are inclined
to think so. We have so many patriotic societies that
we are actually destroying our liberties, because if
one is not under the wing of some kind of society he
has very little-show in the (Kilitical and business world.
Even the Daughters of the American Revolution,
who represent the worlds greatest patriots, are in
danger Upstanding for exactly the things their fathers
fought against. They are in danger of being domi
nated by interests that have Ihe same principles at
heart as did the British lords, who thought it right
to abridge American citizenship.
. It is quite natural when ;i small group of men or
women join themselves together -though the motive
may be the purest- that they are in danger of letting
on the larder lines of selfishness and may soon think
themselves guardians of others upon lines of their
Possibly one of the greatest faults chargeable to
society government is the fact that soci-ties are
usually of special groups or types, hence they have
a very narrow view* of the real needs of the whole
body of people. A patriotic society made up of wom
en who have no especial duties can not have a proper
vision of their sisters, who have to do the the drudg
ery which most women have to face.
Then, too, the great forces. |M>litical and financial,
work overtime on these societies, whose main purpose
too often is popularity, and the keener school of poli
ticians have very little trouble in leading them on.
They know how to put leaders in the licld who have
the viewpoint that may suit their-own interests.

Miss Anne Morrow is one girl who should not *ant
her beau to visit often. He has to fly about 2,000
miles every time he goes -eourting, and part of the
way over very rough country. It is a dangerous thing
in these latter days of fast life for a husband to fall,
j because the courts are full of cases where either the
wife or the husband Jws- fallen.
With a 4,000-mile air journey, Miss Morrow stands
a chance of having a fallen sweetheart.

Washington's Social Problem
Washington is again all excited and is perhaps con
-1 sidering one of the most weighty matters that has
been up in Washington since the close of the World
| War. The question at issue now is the social status
of t|ie sister of Vice President Curtis. In Washing
ton, it is like it is in the old countries, if you get high
L in social circles you have either to lie born in it or
marry in it. Vice President Curtis, being a widower,
has nether wife nor daughter, so he thought of his
sister, Mrs. Edward Everett Gann, and stood her in
the social line.
Secertary Kellogg, America's highest diplomatic au
thority, called her down and said she could not class
with the up|>er ten. Since that time the diplomats of
the world have had to go into the question of whether
the sister of the vice president of the United States
is the social equal of the wife of the ambassador from
Liberia Well, we hope she breaks in.
The Clean-Up Campaign
Williamston is to be a better-kept town. A new
determination seems to have impressed itself on the
people of Williamston, and they are going out with
! a determination to make Williamston a better town
to live in. Th; houses, yards, and lots are to be
! cleaned and beautified by paint, flowers, etc.
This is the first time that all the people of the town,
j both white and colored, have entered whole-heartedly
into such a campaign. What work that has been done
along these lines in past "campaigns have been by
small units of the people, and the work has been very
Williamston is practically a mosquitoless town, es
j pec tally all parts except that neaijjhe river. Yet some
j seasons we hear much complaint of the rusty tin can
i and mud-puddle mosquito. The clean-up campaign
1 is expected to remove every tin can or other receptacle
j where water mighi lodge and become the breeding
I places for the dangerous pests. All mudholes will al
so be drained and d sinfected. It is a line tiling that
| the-people are beginning to know that most of the
fatal contagious diseases come from carelessness in
and. around the home.
Cleaning up the town and keeping it clean will mean
much more for the town than the coming of a big
factory. If Wil'iamst* n gets 100 per cent service
fri m -i's citizens in carrying forward this project, we
will have less sickness, fewer hospital" bills, and

Childhood That "Black-
Draught Can't Be
Beaten" For It.
West Helena, Ark.—"l am fifty
two years of age, and I have taken
Black-Draught, when needed, all mv
life," write* Mr. O. L. Smith, of 353
North Third Street, this city.
"When I was Just a child, my
mother made Black-Draught tea,
and gave It to me for colds and
biliousness. It was a family medi
cine with us.
"After I was grown and went out
on the farm, working hard, I would
get a dull, tired feeling and a bad
taste In my mouth. I would know
then, that I was bilious. I would
take a few doses of Black-Draught,
and SOCHI feel good as new.
"In later years, I have taken
Black-Draught and It has helped
me for constipat .on and biliousness,
and I am still of the same belief, as
when a child, tliat Black-Draught
can't be beaten."
Thousands of men and women
find Black-Draught of great help in
relieving the coir.tnon ailments,
to constipation, biliousness and Ui
Black-Draught Is prepared from
selected meciirtnal herbs and roots.
