OFFICIAL PAPER. OF APACHE COUNTY
August 30, 1917.
BEGIN AT HOME.
Our government is sending out
circulars and bulletins showing
how to conserve food and urging
everybody to save, eat less and in
every way save everything of
value that can be eaten.
This is all right and fine, and
people should do this, even if we
were not at war, because it is a
sip to waste food at any time,
when so many people have so lit
tle. The government should also
see that the waste in the army
camps is stopped, for there is the
greatest waste of all, if reports'
are true. .. ,
At Fort Bliss, near El Paso, it
is reported that enough food goes
into Ithe garbage to feed many
families, in fact several poor fam
ilies get much food that they pick
out of the garbage that is hauled
away. Parties who take the gar
bage and swill from Fort Bliss,
feed and fatten a large number
of hogs on it and this swill is so
rich that many of the hogs get
indigestion and have to be fed
charcoal, etc. At the hog pens,
many women and children go
over the garbage and select a lot
of good food that has been thrown
away. They get sacks of good
potatoes, cabbage heads, that
have never been cut, lettuce.' car
rots, chunks of bacon and other
stuff that they clean and eat.
Much has been written of the
heroes of the trenches and of the
flying service and of the navy,
but what of the officers and sea
men of the merchant ships that
sail the seas in the teeth of the
submarines and hidden mines?
Did you know that almost ten
thousand of these brave sailors
have been lost on British mer
chantmen alone since the war
started? Gracious heavens! what
a heavy toll of death to those en
gaged in peaceful pursuits. All
the naval battles of any one war
the world has ever known has not
claimed such a death list. The
British sailor was never braver
than he is today, and his record
of heroism extends back into the
dim centuries of the past. He
goes down to the sea in ships
without the panoply and senti
ment and waving banners of war;
goes to serve his country just the
same as his brother in the Fland
ers battle line or in the North sea
fleet. He must feed the soldiers
and bring shells for their guns.
The sea is a hazard, even in times
of peace but today it is an insat
iate dragon whose maw is never
filled. But the ships sail on, just
the same, and unnamed, unsung
heros sail them with- a smile on
their lips and a gamer glad glori
ous light in their eyes, in spite of
all that the Kaiser and the devil
can do to prevent them, Bisbee
Winslow Mail : What was natur
ally to be expected under the se
lective draft is now being daily
realized. A young married man
in Los Angeles, without a politi
cal pull or wealthy relatives, has
been refused exemption. He filed
his claim for exemption on the
ground that he had a wife and.
child dependant on him for sup
port, but his claim was denied.
He now announces that scores of
young married men without any.
children, but with wealthy influ
ential parents, have been exempt
ed, and he will go .to jail rather
than serve unless these wealthy
scions of Los Angeles are compel
led to go also. .The young man is.
right in the attitude he takes, and
further the government should
investigate into the matter and
see where the trouble lies. If
this is a war for democracy let the
sons of the rich go out and do the
fighting just the same as the sons
of the poor. If any one is to be
exempt it should be the poor man
as he. depends on his daily labor
to earn support for his family .
Young married men who have
wealthy parents on one or both
sides of the house are not the sole
support of their wives by any
means, and such should be. called
into service. Let us have no dis
graceful scandals connected with
this war. .
According to the press dis
patches the government-is taking
drastic steps to suppress labor ag
itations, but why don't it take the.
same drastic methods against the
criminal rich food gamblers and
speculators, and the coal mining
trusts that are daily robbing the
people to gather in war profits?
The measure of a sufficiency of a
wage is not the dollars and cents
in the pay envelope, but how far
it will go in providing the neces
sities of life, and if the govern
ment cannot suppress thfc rapaci
ty of the criminal rich who are
robbing laboring men with war
prices for their daily supplies it
will be a hard matter to success
fully suppress labor troubles. If
war causes food, clothing and fuel
to advance double in price, the
same war should cause wages to
increase in the same ratio, but
any student of political economy
knows the war is not the cause;
it is the excuse; and the organized
bandits of capital have a strangle
hold on Congress to prevent any
interference. Winslow Mail.
TAKING THE COWBOYS.
An exchange says : If the gov
ernment keeps up its lick in tak
ing cowboys off the ranges there
won't be enough punchers left
soon to round up the saddle horses
and old men and young girls will
have to do the range riding.
On one ranch in New Mexico,
the owner and every cowboy were
taken last week, leaving an outfit
with five thousand cattle on the
hands of a young wife to handle,
unless theowner sells out at a big
sacrifice, which he is trying to do.
Have Us Skinned.
In Mexico there is an export
duty of $12 per head on cattle
and the price of beef averages
eight cents a pound. People down
in that revolution-ridden country
may not be so swift .as in the
United States, but in this one
particular have us skinned a city
block Yuma Sun.
It is by no means an easy mat
ter to cure this disease, but it can
be done in most instances by tak
ing Chamberlaiu's Tablets and
complying with the plain print
ed dieections that accompany
each package. Adv.

NO REASON FOR IT.
You are shown a way out.
There can be no reason why any
reader of this who suffers the
tortures of an aching back, the
annoyance of urinary disorders,
the pains and dangers of kidney
ills will fail to heed the word of a
resident of this locality who has
found relief. The following is
convincing proof of merit.
Rev. Paul Figueroa, 452 S.
Stone Aye., Tucson, Ariz., says:
'About eight years ago my kid
neys were bothering me and it
seemed as though the pains in my
back would never stop. My kid
neys did not act regularly. I us
ually felt languid and tired and I
suffered with frequent headaches.
I used four boxes of Doan's Kid
ney Pills and they permanently

The State Tax Commission
soaked the cattlemen to the tune
of $29."50 all round for range cat
tle for taxable purposes. This is
a raise of $4.50 per head. The
sheep men got elevated to the ex
tent of ,$6.00 per head. While
there might have been good
grounds for the raise on sheep,
the Commission certainly got the
wrong dope on cattle. There
seems to be no appeal from this
It seems that the cattlemen
have not much influence with the
state officials. Still, the cattle
men have company, for the farm

Ask Anyone Who Has Used It.
There are families who always
aim to keep a bottle of Chamber
lain's Colic and Diarrhoea Rem
edy in the house for use in case
it is needed, and find that it is not
only a good investment but saves
them no end of suffering. As to
its reliability, ask anyone who
has used it. Adv.'
