The Food Administration urges
people not to slaughter lamb, calves,
"broilers" on the ground that the
young animals should be allowed to
mature and produce more meat them
selves, and breed progeny that will
produce it, to say nothing of milk,
butter, cheese and eggs. Disregard
ing this advice an unlanterned auto
the other night went bang into a calf
over at Lynn, and made veal of it be
(fore it could say "Jack Robinson," or
even "Hi there !"As a penalty for dis
obeying the, food Bureau one passen
ger got a twisted wrist, another was
badly bruised, a third found himself
holding up the car by the front axle
on his chest. He was saved from be
ing crushed to death only by toppling
the car down the bank. A Detroit
friend tells me that 50 children are
killed there by autos every year. Old
Herod would find himself outof a job
in that city.
Dr. Palmer expects to resume his
practice here. Whether two practic
ing and one retired physician are more
than a- town of this size needs is a
question not easily settled. There
are probably no statistics on the sub
ject. It must -depend somewhat on
the state of health in the town. Up
north there w(as a small . town with
two- doctors. -There was -more than
enough parctice for one but not
enough for two. Both were very pop
ular with their patients. None who
had called in one would ever call in
the other; yet neither doctor made
more than a bare living. The town
was divided into two equal factions,
each of which tried to make as much
business as possible for its favorite.
They said one womanwould call in
her doctor when she found a fresh
freckle, and another would prick her
fincrer when she wanted to be mani
cured, so as to have her doctor do it.
It was finally settled by one side tak
ing up : a subscription and buying the
other- doctor out.
