Give Mexico a chance! That is a fjentiment dove-itailing adraiifably with the lately promulgated theory of self-det rmination. Give ourselves a chancel Give our boys .* chance. Give our widowed wives, orphaned children and sad dened homes a chance. Give peace a .chance, that we may return to our plows and harrows and look to the years ahead. There is sentiment in deed that strikes dear to our hearts! Why all this cry about an occa ?ional border raid? Better to wipe out the banditry of our Southwe?t cities than to point our energies to ward sporadic ventures across the border. Every day there are murders in our cities; each night there are holdups and safe-blowings vastly more shocking than the petty cattle thievery along the Rio Grande. Yet our press wreaks with shameful at tempts to force our young men to risk their lives, not in a holy cause, but in a foreign guerilla warfare of questionable motive. . Propaganda-what an agent to poison the minds of a conscientious people! A certain circle of bankers, oil concerns, newspapers, politicians -all with interests in Mexico-what traitors to national morals! ; It is of interest that the conserva tive press has not been hoodwinked as yet into advocating war with our sister republic to the South. It is of passing note that Ambassador Fletch er is still unconvinced of the neces sity for intervention. It is worthy of remark that the Presbyterian mis sion in Mexico has never had a quiet er year than the last 12 months. In fact,! among those who are in posi tion to judge authoritatively, there seems to be a large disposition to support Carranza as against any of a number of revolutionary aspi rants to power. Inside information leads to the ^conclusion that things are growing ?teadily better in Mexico. For the next few years-which, if we will let them, can probably be made a period of gradual settling-we should be satisfied with preventive measures. Let's be content for a while to treat the Mexican situation with a show of patience, courage and opti mism, instead of rifles and hand grenades. Perhaps our resistance to the barrage of the propagandists will eventually emerge triumphant. Farm and Ranch. LOST: A gold brooch at or near \the station at Trenton on August 21.
