Gen. Villa, low-brow and ex-bandit,
has done what might have saved Ma
dero. He has confiscated, so far as
possible, the vast estates of Terrazas
and the Creels, declaring that the
property shall be given to the widows
and orphans of his soldiers. Terra
zasr land holdings comprised about
two-thirds of the state of Chihuahua
and, if the rebels win, this land may
be divided among the people, provid
ing that Villa has his say.
Does it look like brigandage? Man
is a land animal. It is .not well that
a Terrazas own two-thirds of a state
and that 99 per cent of the people
therein be, consequently, poor, mis
erable and hopeless. Can you rea
sonably expect loyalty to law and or
der, or a neat discrimination as to
what is right from people who have
everlastingly been poor, miserable
He is a fool who expects that when
an oppressed people seize the power
of reformation and restitution they
will be nice about what they do in
redressing their wrongs.
Villa has struck at the great curse
pf Mexico. He has done, to an ex
tent, just what the masses of Mex-A
ico want done, without waiting for
constitutional legislation to do it. If
he persists in this policy and his ex
ample is followed by other victorious, t
rebels, it will not be long before the
Huerta regime vanishes.
Confiscation by right of might has. ,
an ugly look. So does the knife of r
the surgeon who cuts to save life.,
Lucky the land that has a sure legal
cure for oppressive monopoly. F

HERE'S THE "PUSHOMOBILE'
FOR WINTER TIME
Here is the latest thing for kids!
A "hesitation" skate!
It's named after the famous new
dance, and when you buy one it'
comes fairly expensive. But why buy
one at all if you happen to have a
"pushomobile" and an old pair of ice t
skates? The "pushomobile" has been'
retired to the store room long ago ,
and you'll probably find it there now.
Get it out and lash a skate to each,,
wheel and you have. the "hesitation",
and are all ready for the ice ponds. .,
The "hesitation" skate has been so u
named because it is like the famous,
dance you skip along a few steps,
and then hesitate. With the skate,,
you run a few steps and then jump
on the skate. It's great sport,
