CONSERVATION OF LIFE.
Because Dr. Harvey W. Wiley re
marked that in this country there had
been an effort to conserve pretty much
everything except human life, the
Indianapolis News is led to say?
"That is a very common complaint of
a certain type of sociologists, but it is
not what one would expect to hear from
a man of Dr. Wiley's knowledge and
experience. When the doctor was en
forcing the pure food law, what was
he doing but conserving human life?
The Agricultural Department is doing
the same thing when it teaches farm
ers how to raise better crops and food
animals. Precisely the same object is
in view when the country quarantines
against diseases at its ports. Public
hospitals are for the same purpose
Medical research is devoted to it. Con
servation of human life is part of the
duties of all peace officers, doctors and
sometimes even lawyers. Indeed ,a very
laree proportion ot the public lunds is
spent with this end in view, and it
commands the daily activities of an
enormous number of people. And per
haps if the subject were examined a
little more deeply the main object of
human acticity would be found to be
the conservation of human life which,
after all, is only it is to be expected
when self-preservation is life's first
law." - !
The News can tie right without Dr
Wiley being wrong. The Indianapolis
paper will admit that the government
was slow to get started in its pure food
work and that this branch of govern
ment work has met with. many obstacles
and hinderancs. Dr. Wiley evidently
meant that other government enter
prises in the way of conservation par
ticularly in the matter of livestock and
agricultural resources had been in ser
vice so long and been developed with
such thoroughness and persistence
as to make the belated and much re
sisted efforts in behalf of life and health
conservation seem practically nothing
Human life and health arc the most
valuable asset that the nation possesses,
but all thoughtful and fair-minded peo
ple will admit that this asset is one that
is not yet fully appreciated. Men and
women take long chances on their own
lives and exemption fron disease just
because they calculate that a kind pro
vidence that has taken care of them for
so long will continue to hover over
them. Employers of men and women
realize that human tools are the most
profitable of any that they can work
with and they work them to the limit
of endurance without a thought for
the future. The conservation of human
life is so little accomplished in this
country in comparison with the need
for it that Dr. Wiley can be forgiven
some extravagance of statement which
be evidently resorts to in order to make
the need for the reform he advocates
News of the professed intentions of
the Republican and Progresseiv parties
to meige is not calculated to make the
Democrtas overly particular about in
sisting on the civil service rules being
strictly observed. The benefit of the
doubt will usually be given to the office
holder. Col. Roosevelt is suing a country
editor in Michigan for saying in his
paper that the Colonel got druuk on
an occasion. The Colonel ought to
know that a man is not responsible
for what he says in the heat of a cam
paign. At all events he ought to be
ashamed of himself for trying to collect
tea thousand diollars out of the editor
of a small weekly newspaper.
TOO LATE TO WEEP.

A NEEDED CHANGE.
In an address delivered Monday at
Chattanooga in connection with the
holding there this week of the Annual
Reunion ot Confederate Veterans, Mr.
W. J. Behrman of New Orleans, speak
ing before the Confederate States
Memorial Association predicted rad
ical changes in the work of that asso
She said that too much attention
had been paid to honoring the memory
of the dead and not enough toward
making provision for the living. That
sounds like a very practical and com
mon sense view of the question.
The dead are worthy of all honor
but the want of it will not go as hard
with them as will the want of the com
forts of life with such of the aging
veterans as have met in civil life the
defear in which their matchless struggle
in war finally culminated. The de
dining years of these old soldiers
should be made comfortable and happy.
GETTING BACK TOGETHER.
l nose persons wno months ago
predicted that the two wings of the
Republican party would get back to
gether are beginning to plume them
selves on being some prophets. For
every passing day's developments ap
pear to make more certain the ultimate
coalition of the two factions. The sight
of Democrats monopolizing the space
around the pie counter has been too
much for the representatives of the
men who had fed on pie continuously
for nearly a score of years. The old
longing has seized upon them and
they have been overcome. Differences
that seemed irreconcileable last summer
seem entirely capable now of being
smoothed out. And if all the factions
of the Republican party do get together
the Democrats will have to get some
recruits from somewhere or there will
be trouble. The hope is that while the
organizations of the rival factions of
the "G. O. P." may get togethe;, there
will be progressive men in the ranks
of the Munsey-Roosevelt-Perkins out
fit who will see that the only party
which promises to get results of the
kind that they are seeking is the Demo
cratic pary and will act accordingly.
And if President Wilson and Secretaries
Bryan and Daniels will keep up the lick
we hardly ee that it will be necessary
for the Prohibitionists to put a ticket
in the field in 1916, so that there will
be still another oource of strength for
There wih in all probability be only,
only two great parties in 1916, but the
Democrats have more than a fighting
chance to be the bigger of the two.
DEMOCRACY AND EDUCATION.
"President Lowell", says the Nor
folk Virginian-Pilot, "says Harvard
is becoming more and more democratic,
which is fairly conclusive evidence
that Harvard is receiving and applying
as well as imparting information.
Education tends to the effacement of
snobbishness. The latter is largely
founded on ignorance. In the old
feudal days when class lines were
rigidly drawn, the upper as well as
the lower classes were densely ignorant.
When the printing press and the rail
road came along and men could read
about and visit other people they found
that the world was a large place and
that there were in it many very de
serving and entirely respectable folks.
There is no excuse for not being
democratic those days. Those whose
selfish instincts would ordinarly
lead them to cultivate habits
ol cxclusiveness are afraid to do sofor
they know that such a course will
write them down in the judgment of
many as lacking in the good breeding
which an education gives.
Notwithstanding the prevalence
flies on this earth and of course in
Guilford county, our people continue
to live to a ripe old age. Several arc
living who are approaching the cen
tury mark, among them Mr. J. C.
Wharton, of Greensboro, and a num
ber of others. Many are living who

they arc in very good health. The se-
cert of longevity, if there is a secret,
seems to be in prudent living and the
most regular habits, together with an
outdoor life. Greensboro Record.
But the main question is, How many
of Mr. Wharton's play-mates are still
living? How many of the babes that
cane into the world at about the time
that he did? Of the diseases that flies
are instrumental in propagating the
one that is the raostdeadly finds

pared to resist disease. If eighty years
ago and continuously since, there had

There is a saying that "rapid eating
is slow suicide." If you have formed
the habit of eating too rapidly you arc
most likely suffering from indigestion or
constipation, which will result event

Digestion begins in the mouth. Food
should be thoroughly masticated and
insalivated. Then when you have a
fullness of the stomach or feel dull
and stupid after eating, take one of

cured, and any who were not can get
another treatment at this time. Those
