On year Six Months $9.00 $4.60 Sunday rt"'y NO LAW AGAINST LAUGHTER PROHIBITION COMMISSIONER ROY HAYNES is of the opinion that prohibition is no joking matter. He objects strenuously to jokes dealing with the dry law, claiming that they breed disrespect for the law. Some theatres have put a ban on "booze jokes." Mr. Haynes may be right in a way, but we regret that the day has arrived when the people are denied the privilege of laughing; particularly when it is possible for so many humorous things to be written about prohibition. It must be admitted that prohibition brews more good laughs than mothers-in-law and Fords, two joke subjects that have been used for years and still are not exhausted. , The Review did not agree to Mr. Haynes' suggestion that the funny side of prohibition should be overlooked. It considers the dry law a serious one just as serious as the hundreds of other laws in the nation but when there is humor in the prohibition amendment The Review cannot resist passing it on to its readers. So here is a clever bit mailed In by a Review reader yesterday. Perhaps' it may, cause some to laugh at prohibition, but we believe the laugh will do more good than any little harm that Mr. Haynes might consider dis respectful. "A very unusual thing occurred to a person being associated with certain Individuals," writes tho Review reader. "He discovered a remarkable recipe for home brew and here it Is: Chase a bullfrog three miles, then gather up the hops; add ten gallons of tan bark, half a pint of shellac and a bar of home-made soap; boil the combina tion 36 hours and strain through an I. W. W. hat, to prevent working; bottle and, after putting a grass hopper in each pint to furnish a kick, serve, using the following measure: 2 pints 1 quart 2 quarts 1 fight, 1 fight 2 cops 2 cops 1 judge 1 judge 30 dayB.v -Ferhaps Mr. Haynes will consider that offensive. But if the peo ple cannot have a laugh or two now and then over doing without their "hootch," then prohibition is far more serious than it should be. o LEAVING DEPRESSION BEHIND JUSINESS conditions in the United States are slowly but surely re covering from the depression of the last two. It would be foolish to expect any sudden burst of prosperity after two years of dull times. It took many months for the business of the nation to slide down from a normal level to the low period of depression. It will take many months for conditions to crawl up to normal again. Bnt conditions are slowly getting better and have been getting better for several months. The lesson learned during the dull months will not soon be forgotten. From now on the nation may be expected to buy carefully only what it needs and manufacture only what it can use or sell abroad. There will be no over-production or extravagant buying, for Uncle Sara is learning the value of economy. But prosperous times, safe and sane and stable, certainly seem on the road. Confidence has been restored and confidence is the back bone of good business. The gloom peddlers seem to have closed up shop. Discuraging rumors no more are sweeping over the country. Every face seems to be looking forward. Here is a resume, by The Associated Press, of conditions during the past week, and there is much In it to cheer the nation: "Proctically all the available signs point to a further improve ment in the volume of industrial production. Car loadings for the week ended September 23, the latest for which statistics are available, total 973.000 cars, a new high record for the year, almost 100,000 greater than that of the corresponding week, a year ago. "Bituminous coal production continued to hold close to the 10, 000,000 tons a week schedule. It would be greater if coal cars were, moro plentiful. Nevertheless, the amount being mined seems to be reasonably adequate for tho present rate of industrial activity. . "In tho ateeLtrade, the loss in blast furnace capacity occasioned by the Augubt fuel shortage, has been made good. Where the indus try now feels the pinch is in the supply- or freight cars. The grain trade, too, is meeting with some difficulty in moving its product from the farms and to the seaboard. Prices for grain continue to hold at the better lovel attained during the 'war scare.' Cotton prices also have advanced well. "It is clear that the anticipated car shortage has arrived. As a corollary, it. may be stated that indubtry at present Is going ahead about as rapidly as the country's transportation facilities will permit." As long as industry is compelled to wait on transportation there is little cause for worry or uncertainty. Real hard times are never accompanied by a demand for cars, rather are they best illustrated when thousands of freight cars arc idlo. .And that is not the case now. The cry is for cars and more cars. The demand for freight shipments cannot be handled by tho railroads. Surely that is an en couraging situation. INSECTS JLLLVOIS fights the 17-year-cicada, incorrectly kuown as a locust. In Joliet and Aurora tho cicadas hum so loudly that shouting can not be heard across the street. If other insects became as active and prolific as tho cicada, human life would bo destroyed entirely in a few years at the most. Some scientists think it possible that insect life eveutually will externiinutelninn aitd'rule supreme" o : Iowa Republicans will bupport the Democratic candidate for sen ator at the general election; proving that there are some Republicans who exercise good sense at the polls. o Just about twice as many fans as last year were in front of The Review office yesterday to hear the world scries bulletins.

"His acting was the worst I ever saw and I said so. The 'actor sued me for libel but he lost the case. rretty soon he bobbed up; in another play. The night of the opening his lawyer came over to me and said: j 'Now look here, if you lambast this man again, he may have cause to say you are prejudiced against him.' "Well, it looked to me as though there might be some basis for the lawyer's notion, so that night after I had seen the play I merely wrote that the man's acting was not up to hi usual standard. "That," says Broun, "I consider to be my best line." First Aids for Humorists ! In his column he endeavors to In-1 the stock exchange.

Harris, for several years in the employ of the merchants of the city as assistant to Policeman George Cook, died last night at his home on Fourteenth street. Death fol lowed and illness of two months or more and was due to a complication of troubles. Mr. Harris is survived by the widow and famil of sons and daughters, among them fhein the Misses Kath ryn, Ruth and Marry Harris. Cattle for Pasturage WILLCOX J. B. Cook returned Sat urday evening from El Paso where he purchased 1400 .Jiead of New Mexico cattle, which will be snipped to Will cox within the next few weeks. Part of them will be turned loose on the Pitchfork and part on the Seven-Dash ranches. The quarantine restrictions existing between New Mexico and Ail zona have been removed and ship ments can now be made under federal inspection certificates only. With Federal Loan DOUGLAS D. Porter Dunlap, for mer Douglas boy, arrived in town yes' terday, coming here in his official ca pacity as representative of the U. S. Farm Loan Bureau. He is now in charge of five states for the board, including Washington, Oregon, Call fornia, and Arizona. He has completed his trip through the other three states and after making a tour of Arizona wll lgo to Nevada. He recommends or rejects loans asked by the farmers, Mr. Dunlap spent many years of his youth in Douglas having attended the local schools. His mother is now a resident of Long Beach. Ship Cattle Direct WILLCOX Johnson & Cook have made arrangements with the Union Stock Yards of Los Angeles for direct shipments to the yards of that city. Offices have been secured and compe tent stock yard men employed, who wil handle all shipments to the best ad vantage for the shippers. Cattle can now be shipped from Willcox to the Union Stock Yards in that city and sold at the prevailing market prices on the same basis as shipments are made to Omaha, Kansas City and other points east. Shipments on this basis will commence on Nov. 1st., with the opening of the Los Angeles Union Stock Yards. After that date any cat tleman desiring to sell a bunch of cat tle may ship at any time, consigning it to Johnson & Cook at the Union Stock Yards, and the cattle will be sold at the prevailing market prices. One will not have to wait for Cali fornia buyers to arrive here and con tract for cattle before shipments are made as has heretofore been the prac tice. Road Work in County TOM USTONE Project Engineer Al Jenkins was in town today en route to eBnson to confer with the people there regarding work the supervisors may re quest the state to do in that town. The state highway department is willing to do the work, but must have the re quest come from the supervisors, Mr. Jenkins stated, and it would have to come quickly as he was nearly fin ished, with the work on the postal route from the E. P. & S. W. depot at Fairbank to the post office and he would then begin loading the big "cat" on the cars preparatory to shipping it to Tucson far work between the Rillto bridge and Florence. He also stated that next week he would move his camp from Fairbank to a point on the road west of Tucson towards Florence, where three state crews are rebuilding the old Florence road. He is finishing up here and there on tho road out of Fairbank and that will complete a standard built high way from the Arizona-New Mexico state line near Rodeo to Patagonia, or within 22 miles of Nogales and that it was now up to Santa Cruz county to speaking tour, the Lawson automobile was wrecked. Lawson received a frac tured arm and a bad shaking up. Despite his injuries and baudages Lawson stuck to his campaign. Syru pathy and admiration for his .game ness, gave him enough Republican votes to defeat Weeks and elect W'alsh. GUARDS WITHDRAWN CHARLESTON, Oct. 7.
