I suppose you have been somewhat

left the United States. The silence
was unintentional as after arriving
in the theater of operations no news
could be sent back to the Brick City1
by any of the boys until they had
done their full duty in helping- to
make safe the world for democracy.
Ve wish to extend thanks and con congratulations

STATE CONVICT SYSTEM
In the Marianna .Times-Courier of
last week we find a report from
"Robert L. Kennedy M. D., state pris pris-i
i pris-i on physician," in which is a statement
that demands instant investigation.
Speaking of the hospital at the
state prison farm at Raiford, Dr.
Kennedy says: ,C
"Our hospital subjects consist most mostly
ly mostly of those who have been beaten up
or worked to death on hard roads and
turpentine. Some have come in "from

the statement of the Hon. A. D. An Andrews,
drews, Andrews, senator from the fifteenth'
Florida district, where he said : "We
have been deriving near a hundred
thousand dollars a year from the con convicts
victs convicts which we leased." This he said
in opposition to the plan for working
convicts on the roads of the state.
Are we to understand from the
statement of Dr. Kennedy that the
state is being robbed of its man manpower
power manpower in this way ? That hardy, vig vigorous
orous vigorous manhood is being sent through
a hell of punishment and work suca
that it is never after able to be an

has made a statement that demands
no less instant and thorough investi investigation

If the treatment given state pris
oners on the rpads, where a few of
them are being worked, is such as to
send them broken and bruised back to
the state farm hospital to be a drag

their own physical and mental self,
then there is instant demand for a
bringing of this system of cruelty to

If the treatment given state con convicts,

LEAGUE OF NATIONS

evidently confident that the American
people are overwhelmingly in favor
of a league of nations, and that their
sentiment will compel the Senate to
ratify a treaty of which the consti constitution

But after the move made by Sena Senator
tor Senator Lodge in the Senate Monday

der wonder if the president is correct in his
estimate, and .among those are going
to be the shrewd diplomats with
whom he, will confer at Versailles. ',
If thirty-three members of the Sen Senate
ate Senate oppose the treaty and persist in
their opposition, they can defeat it.
Mr Wilson's only remedy will be to
appeal to the country. Such an ap appeal
peal appeal cannot be answered before No November
vember November of next year, and even then
the line-up of the Senate cannot be
changed beforeMarch 4, 1921. The
United States -can wraiti on the treaty
that long, but Europe cannot.
And there is no certainty that the
line-up will be changed two years
from now. There is a powerful ops ops-position

an opposition due more to
some of Mr. Wilson's appointees and
the incapacity of the democratic

His remains were laid to rest at Dade

in 1879 and settling in Leesburg. He
was for a while the law partner of
Judge William A. Hocker, who. later

citizens. He served in the legislature,
and became lieutenant governor of
Florida in 1884 the last man to hold
the office. He served on the supreme

retiring in 1903. His long life was
usefully and honorably spent and his
death is widely regretted.

tho we have no idea the governor
meant it as such, and the statement
was a vast exaggeration.
If Congress was to seriously con consider

a yell of graft would go up all over
the world and there would be justi justification

DAILY HEALTH TALKS
The Many Mysteries of
BY L. W. BOWER, M. D.
You can take an onion seed and a pansy
seed, and plant them side by side in the
same spot of ground. In one case, you
get an onion, with its peculiarly strong
odor, and in the 6ther you get a nower of
rare beauty. You can plant a poppy seed
and get opium (a dangerous, habit-forming
drug), or you can plant a rhubarb seed and
get something that helps constipation.
No scientist, living or dead, can explain
these mysteries of Nature. Behind the
invisible life germ in each seed is hidden
the deep secret that nobody understands.
Everything growing out of the ground
seems intended for some use in establishing
natural conditions. Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo,
N. Y., long since found out what i3
naturallyvbest for women's diseases. He
learned it all through treating thousands
of cases. The result of his studies was a
medicine called Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription. This medicine is made of
vegetable growths that nature surely in intended
tended intended for backache, headache, weakening
drains, bearing-down pains, periodical ir irregularities,
regularities, irregularities, pelvic inflammations, and for
the many disorders common to women in
all ages! of life. Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription is made of lady's slipper root,
black cohosh root, unicorn root, blue
cohosh root and Oregon grape root.
Women who take this standard remedy
know that in Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre Prescription
scription Prescription they are getting a safe woman's
tome so good that druggists everywhere
Favorite Prescription should have the
full confidence of every woman in America
because it contains no alcohol and no
narcotic. Dr. Pierce knew, when he first
made this standard medicine, that whiskey
and morphine are injurious, and so he has
always kept them out of his remedies.
