there were other thouands of letters

No sus It. Arizona believes that
there will be any scarcity of appli
cants for federal offices. In fact they
arc a numerous almost as grass
hoppers during a plague year in the
state ot Kansas. And no one knows
this better than our senator. It Is ail
right to "string" Senator O'Gorman
with a line of talk about our people
being busy with building roads ant

There is some question as to how

a great setback in this respect. The!
United States can hardly afford to

seventh or eighth on account ot a
scarcity of champagne. ?nd it seems

bestir itself to find a reined.
When one stops, to consider the un
