Value of Freedom and Education.
A free population, ambitious to get
the benefit, of Its own labor and enter
prise. Is the maklon of any country.
With freedom will come more general
education and n great upraise in Mex
ican life wi.i result. By way of con
trast Mexico and Sweden and Norway
offer an interesting study. Mexico,
with peonage and restricted education,
has a wonderful and rich variety of
natural resources. Sweden and Nor
way, with a cold and rather sterile
country, have Individual freedom, and
are the only countries In the world in
which every grown man can read and
write. Therefore the Scandinavians
have prosperity, good homes and a
general and splendid civilization, while
Mexico, with friend climate and
great natural resources, lags behind.
But the signs of advancement are
many ana encouraging, and there is
every reason for taking a cheerful
view of the future of our sister re
