ROBERTSON, Tax Collector. 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.
