of tho congress, and. inspired wtlh pa
triotic fervcr, the delegates gave rapt
attention to the program.
Tho incident at Tampico was not ovcr
Icoked in thp words of honor to the
flag, and the great audience was roused
to a high pitch of enthusiasm during
the sentiments expresed by Whitehcud
Kluttz. ol Salisbury. N. C. "Words of
nonor are wasted on Mexico today,"' he
said. "No arguments but blows are
recognized there. Deplore It as we
may. It is true that onlv the hell of war
can end the hell of Mexico. If ever
war were holy, then -his war Is holy;
to dethrone a savage Nero, to establish
order in lieu of anarchy, liberty in lieu
or licenre, and to open the ways of
light and progress to a darkened land."

so much to their mental development-
He declared that by neighborhood co

that It would be necessary for parents

agree that all children be required to

"Then there will be Ho appeal of the

against the stock was renewed later
however, when London again began t

yesterday's foreign attack, each opened

Atcmson and St. Paul were the sub

Wt points during the day, and the for

The foreign attitude is attributed
largely to the financial condition It
