President Wilson up to date has
very ably handled the Mexican ques

unless the Hearst firebrand is
quenched. The Hearst publications
remind one of a yellow dog sitting on
a lonely corner howling at the moon.

genuine, these days of adulterations.
It's hell when man must scheme,
lie, steal and kill to gain what all
