this the reason why so many of

The removal of Madero from the
presidency of Mexico does not neces
sarily mean the end of troublous
times in that republic. There are
numerous bands of rebels scattered
through the country who are pillag
ing and burning small settlements in
the rural districts, and the new gov
ernment will doubtless experience
gieater difficulty than it anticipates
in lestoring peace.
Minneapolis does not take kindly
to the distinction made by the gov
ernment between herself and St.
Paul in the matter of "poif desig
nation While St. Paul is classed as
a "port of entrv," Minneapolis is
designated as a mere "subpoit."
From an impartial viewpoint it
would seem to us that St. Paul on

Almost everjone is aware of the
fact that dear old Maine has been
a "dry'* state for lo, these many
years, and yet the legislature of that
commonwealth has authoiized the
establishment of an inebriate hos
pital. From this we are strongly in
clined to believe the statement of a
Princeton gentleman who, upon re
turning from a trip to Maine, re
maiked: "A man has to watch him
self closely in that state to avoid
getting drunk before bieakfast."
So Dr. Friedmann has made appli
cation for a United States patent on
his so-called tuberculosis cure. This
shows that his aim is more to make
money fiom his serum than it is to
benefit humanity and the reason
why he refused to make the discov
ery public. I is a plain indication
of the man's selfishness. Before he
is granted a patent, however, he
should be compelled to prove beyond
a doubt that his serum will do
what he claims for it,cure tuber
culosis,which he has not succeeded
in demonstiating up to this time.
iSTevvs comes from Sofia, Bulgaria,
that a hundred chiistians have been
massacied by Turkish troops in the
village of Kenaminio and that simi

The Turks are the most atrocious
and bloodthirsty scoundrels on the

At the editorial association meet
ing, held in St. Paul, protest was
made against advertising matter in
magazine supplements sent to coun
newspapeis containing news of
the state school of agriculture, but
sent out bj a company not connected
officially with the school. The
ground of the contention was that
these so-called agricultural magazines
contain advertising for which the
countrj papers circulating them re
ceive no compensation. And not
alone thisthe home merchant is in
jured by the circulation of foreign
advertisements through such medi
The Illinois supreme court has
affirmed the lower court in its sen
tence of Eveljn Arthur See to an in
determinate period in prison. See
is the villain who styles himself the
"apostle of absolute life" and who
induced young girls to attend his so
called church that he might ruin
them. He used his church and pro
fessed leligion as a scieen for his di
abolical pursuits. There are parts
of the country where See would nev
er have been permitted to go to jail
a mob would have strung him to a
telegraph pole. Even at that no too
severe a punishment would ha-\e
been meted out to him.
It becomes more evident every daj
that the English government will
have to resort to more diastic meas
ures if it expects to subdue the mili
tant suffragettes who are operating
extensively in and around the city of
London. The destruction of build
ings by bombs and fire is now being
practiced by these she-anarchists in
their attempt to compel parliament
to grant them the right of franchise,

but, fortunately, they have not yet
taken any human lives. If they con
tinue their nefarious work, how
ever, this is certain to occur sooner
or later, and the perpetrators will
then find that they will not escape

The City of Mexico, which was one
of the most beautiful places in the
world prior to the recent Hostilities
between the Madero and Diaz forces,
now presents a scene of devastation.
Hundreds of magnificent homes, with
gaping holes torn in their walls,
totter on their foundations in all
parts of the city and hundreds of
splendid public and business struc
tures expose their marred and bat
tered walls. I is estimated that
4,500 people2,000 of them noncom

shame to civilization that such nith

At a Wiensball wedding recently a
voung man remarked: "Wasn't it
annoying the way that baby cried
during the whole ceremony?" "It
was simply dreadful," replied the
trim little maid of honor "and

A farmer called at the Vidette
office last week and wanted to use
the telephone. After the connection
was made and the customary "hello"
and "yes" weie exchanged, the
remained perfectly quiet for neaily
five minutes. The silence was so
painful that we asked him if the
line was in trouble. "Oh, no," it's
all light, working fine: I'm 'simply
talking to wife."
The suffragettes are coming to the
front politically, notwithstanding
the Minnesota solons. The inaugu
ral parade at Washington is scheduled
to be a monster affair. We tremble
to think of the time when the wom
en will occupy the political lostrums
and us poor men will be the ballet
dancers. Think of some of our
Carlton men in tights dancing on
their toes, with bald-headed women
in the front low? -Carlton Yidette.
Wilson Denounces Wrongs of "System."
The "New Freedom" by Woodrow
Wilson, made its appearance last
week, just two weeks before the piesi
dential inauguration. The preface,
signed by Mr. Wilson, says in part:
I have not written a book since
the campaign. I did not write this
book at all. I is the result of th*e
editorial literary skill of William
Baai Hale, who has put together
here in their right sequences the
moie suggestive portions of my cam
paign speeches, and yet it is not a
book of campaign speeches. It is a
discussion of a number of very vital
subjects on the free form of extem
poraneously spoken words."
In the first chapter, entitled.
"The Old Order Changeth,'' Mr.
Wilson says that "the singular fact
is that nothing is done in the coun
try as it was 20 years ago. There
was a time when corporations plaved
a very minor part in our business
affairs, but now they play the chief
part, and most men are the seivants
of corporations. What we have to
discuss is, not wrongs which the in
dividuals intentionally doI do not
believe there are a great many of
thosebut the wrongs of the sys-
Mr. Wilson had better call on Tom
Law son, who can tell him more
about the "system" in half an hour
than he will probably be able to ac
quire through his own investigations
in a lifetime.
