Iluerta has proved himself an able man, if not a
man to bo admired or a man to the liking of our

The removal of the duty on corn by this Demo

Our army consists of 84,859 men and 4,745 of
ficers.. There is in the National Guard 122,094 men
and officers. In addition to these the law pro
vides that every able-hodied nian between the
ages of 18 and 45 belongs to the militia, subject
to call to arms when needed. Of this number there
is 10,004,083, which number exceeds the whole
population of Mexico.
If we have war with Mexico there are ready for
service, the regular army and tho national guard
together aggregating 212,278 soldiers, counting
both officers and men. If they are all called into
service, there will not be many volunteers needed,
for certainly 200,000 soldiers will march all over
Mexico. So young fellows who arc waiting to go
into a Mexican war, are liable to be disappointed,
even if we have war, which is by ne means certain:
In fact, the probabilities are that the President will

From time to time the Department of Agricul

and economy are the reasons dwelt upon by the
government experts. Add to the beauty and
economy the fact that paint has a sanitary value
