Mexico City, (by mail to New
7ork)—With Vlctoriano Huerta
finally out and Venustiano Carranza
and the cream of his revolutionary
army filling the palace, cafes and
streets of Mexico City, the reecnt
chapter in Mexican history, so far as
the United Statee is immediately
concerned, approaches an end.
Carranza's determination to enter
the capital with his army simplified
matters greatly for the United
States, for Carranza's flat-footed de
cision not to lay down his arms for
diplomacy, and to march to the capi
tal Instead of to barter with the
remnants of the Huerta regime,
avoided an endless amount of nego
tiations which would only have de
ferred the settlement of matters in
which the United States held a great
Carranza Is now able to say: "I
won every inch of ground by bul
lets. I went clear to the palace
doors with guns. It was not by com
promise that I took the Mexican capi
tal, but with an army. And it Is
with an army and not by diplomacy
or compromise that I will hold what
I have gained."
In this way Carranza profils by
the mistakes of Madero who gained
the presidency by compromise and
who reached a make-believe peace by
signing papers instead of by shoot
ing. Madero's other mistakes of
dispersing his own army and pinning
his own faith to the army of the
government also has been avoided by
Carranza. Carranza intends to dis
perse the Federal army and wipe it
off the army rolls. In its place he
will substitute his own revolutionary
army, in which he knows there art
no Huerta-like traitors, and, with Ris
trustworthy army behind him, with
his trusted representatives in eveiy
corner of the land, Carranza wants
to begin to put Msxito to rights.
The plant of the United States
Cartridge Company here is unusually
busy. The cause for the rush and
the taking on of more operatives is
given as the approach of the gunning
season. Because wealthy citizens
will be deprived from touring
Europe this fall, from all indications,
gunning, it is believed, will be in
dulged in to a greater extent.
Life B»lt« Aren't Cork.
Most people if asked what life belts
were composed of would answer,
"Cork." But it isn't so nowtidays.
Cork life belts are nearly as dead as
the dodo. The substance almost al
ways used nowadays is a flbrous stuff
called kapok, obtained from a plant
that grows In Java. Kapok was used
to stuff cushions for many years be
fore the Idea was hit on of using Its
benutifully buoyant qualities for no
bler purposes. The most buoyant ma
terial known to be in existence is, how
ever, made of poppy heuds. Expert
mental buoys have been made of tills
material, but not with very satisfac
tory results. Poppy heads crush too
easily to make a perfect substance.—
