MEXICO HAS DIAMOND FIELD
Preciouc Stones Said to Exist in Quari
tities That Will Make Their Min
Encouragemnent will be odered by the
Mexican government for tue develop
ment of the diamond field in the state
of Guerro by private capital, It is au
thoritat.vely announced. The existence
of diamondls in a mountainous district
of that southern state has long been
known, but the remoteness of the locals
ity and the di'tculty of getting in and
out of the district have heretofore pre
vented anything being done toward
mining dhe gems.
It was; more than fifty yearsi ego that
the discovery of diamondls there was
ade by an ot1ier of the Mexican
army. A collection of the diamonds
was taken to the City of Mexico and
after bt ing cut they found their ia
into the chn als of comnmerce. Efforts
to relocate the diamond field piroved fu
tile andl it was not until many years
later that a mining prospector came
upon the formation in which the dia
mionids were found. Hie collected a
large number of them in the rough and
took them back to the capital, where
they were placed on exhibition. Noth
Ing was done, however, toward the de
velopment of the field.
Not long ago the department of com
merce and industry of the Mexican gov
er:2nent sent an expedition in charge
of Antonio Lopez, an engineer, to the
locality. Mr. Lopez reported that iis
research had been entirely successful.
Among the diamonds he brought back
with him was one of enormous size in
the rough which he turned over to the
:epartment of commerce and industry.
He made a report to the effect that dia
mods in large quantities are to be
found and that the mining can be done
at comparatively little cost.
Letting the Lawyers Work a Little.
Erastus, a negro, being charged with
urglary, told his defender that he
ad only one conviction against him
isorderly conduct. On cross exam
nation by the district attorney, after
giving a plausible explanation, he was
asked about his court record.
"Disorderly conduct, suh," he said
"Sure that was all?"
The defendant paused to consider.
"Have you-all found out anything
else?" he inquired.
"Elmira reformatory for burglary
in 1911 and twice to Sing Sing for
the same crime," replied the D. A.
"Right. suh. I just thought T'd let
youall find that out for yourself,"
said Erastus. He was convicted.

its Impcrtanc,, Emphasizcd in One
uf Mr. French's Last Letters.
In a few sections of the United
States do the majority of farm fam
ilies produce on their farms the pro
portion of the family living that best
farm economics indicates they should
Many reasons are given for the
failure to do this. With the most of
these we are all familiar. It cannot
be denied that some sections are bet
ter adapted to the production of
certain of our standard foods than
are others, and in consequence the
growing of these foods in the less
favored sections may not be profit
able from the standpoint of growing
surplus food for the market.
However, in practically no sections
'where the production of standard
foods is not barred by soil or climat
ic conditions should the farm family
neglect to produce food for home
consumption. This is true because of
the fact that, under even quite ad
verse conditions food crops may be
produced at less cost than the amount
of money it takes to pay for foreign
grown food, when transportation and
dealers' charges are added.
Another very important fact is that
if certain class of foods are not pro
duced at home, the average farm
famiry will be obliged to do without
Take milk and cream for instance,
My quite wide observation over the
Southeast leads me to believe that
in our section not one farm family
in a hundred, where cows are not
kept on the individual farm, ever has
for use one.tenth the amount of milk
and cream that the best interest of
the members of the farm family de
mands should be used.
With these food products it is not
a qustion of cost, but is a question
of producing at home or going.with
out. .Then in the matter of eggs and
poultry the case is not far different.
While I have always been a firm
-believer in the quality dairy cow, I
do not believe the quality in the cow
at this time is any way near as im
portant as securing the cow. Any
sort of a cow that will giv' milk will
prove a boon to the family that has
heretofore been without milk and
cream, and such a cow can be fed on
the waste products of the average
farm at a cost of half what the milk
she produces would cost on the mar
ket and one-tenth of the cost that
follows doing without milk in the
family where there are growing chil
With the average family when spe
cial money crops are at normal prices
the bare necessities in clothing and
standard foods consume so large a
proportion of the farm income that
