NOT MUCH TO CACKLE OVER
After doing his dirtiest in an endeavor to abuse President Wilson into
war with Mexico, that modest little dove of peace, Hearst, evolves this
tremendous opinion: -
"I think the people of the nation can end this war and end all wars."
It is a mighty small egg, after an extraordinary lot of cackling. The
cackling in ordinary cases always follows the laying, but not so with Willie.
He cackles before, during and after the laying, and there's never any per
iod when you can safely bet on the size of the egg, or indeed on its being
an egg at all.
But Willie's present "I think" is really an egg. Willie has raised so
many straw men and "fit 'em to a finish" that he knows as well as any
school boy on earth that people can end wars by refusing to fight. It isn't
a very fresh egg, or a very remarkable egg in any respect, that Willie has
laid, this time. However, it is a very fair demonstration that Willie is still
able to lay.
