ORRIS W. ROBERTS, Meteorologist. TWO YEARS LATE. If President Wilson had jnobilized the National Guard at the border two years ago. it is probable that there would have been no blood shed at Co lumbus or Glenn Springs. Our Mex ican policy has been one of serious vacillation. Today our soldiers in .Mexico are facing rifles made in the United States and bullets cast in the factories o^f this country. The halting, hesitating policy con tinues while I he insults heap up. No one knows just where Wilson stands. With a line patriotism men are leav in tlieir homes to offer themselves in defense .of this country, but. the ad lfifnist ration offers little inspiration. iFew of us can find any enthusiasm for going to war with Mexico. We liave no quarrel with her people, but it seems that the sword must be un sheathed to punish the leaders of a blind and down-trodden people. The predicament we are in now is the direct result of two years of drift ing and temporizing. Wilson has bar gained first with one. set of bandits and then with another. When results might have been secured, the oppor tunity was sacrificed upon I lie altar of indecision. When we planted the flag at Vera Cruz two years ago in protest to the attitude of Inert a, it should have remained until stable con ditions were restored. It looks now as though tlie United States lo protect, her border must "clean up" Mexico as it did Cuba. This step seems necessary if the bor der states are to be given permanent security. Mexico has had five or six years in which to compose her in ternal relations. Prospects of internal peace are as remote as ever. This nation, however, is not and should not be concerned with Mexico's factional quarrels only so far as conditions af fect the peace and safety of American citizens. Lansing's note to Carranza indi cates that the administration has lost none of its vigorous style since the last one to the Kaiser. SOLDIERS' FUND. Steps are being taken to raise funds for Company A. Bismarck has been generous in the past and will again uphold her traditions. Other cities of the state are preparing to send their boys to the front with resources at their command. It is essenial that the members of the Bismarck com pany be given the comforts that win lighten the burdens of service. Steps should be taken also to provide means for dependents, deprived of bread winners by this call to colors. This movement to raise funds is not one of charity, it is mere justice to the men who so willingly have taken up the burdens of national defense. No one can foretell the severity of serVice resulting from the movement of troops to the border. It is just as well to prepare for the worst and see to it now that the Bismarck militia receive all possible assistance from those in civil life whose military responsibilities have been assumed by the stalwart boys parading the streets today in khaki. I)o your part to help the boys. PREPARED IN 1847. The United States was better pre pared in 1847 to meet .Mexico than it is today. Its army is smaller now and -Mexico's, relatively speaking, Is much larger. Mexico City is fortified better than when General Scot, stormed iis gates. War with Mexico means days and mouths, probably years, of stubborn lighting. General Scott's march from Vera Cruz to Mexico City took six months. At that time the I'nited Stab's had soldiers engaged in the liel 1 and defending the border states di.r ing the two years of warfare. In 1M7 tile victory over Me.vwowar. won through Vera Cruz. The a lvai.ee from the north was abandoned early in the conflict because of the poor means of transportation. General Taylor's border army was reduced in number and the real inv-ision was made by General Winlield Scott via Vera Cruz. Conditions that provoked hostilities were practically identical with the present preliminary clashes. CANCER'S CURABLE STAGE. The dread of cancer causes an un told amount of mental distress. With or without reason, few women escape the fear at some time in their lives. Lately, physicians have attempted to quiet this worry by spreading cer tain exact information concerning the curable stage of cancer. In its beginning, cancer is a local disease. Cutting out the tiny tumor, lump, bard spot, or abnormal growth, when it appears on the exterior of the body, is a simple surgical prob lem. and it cures in SO per cent of breast cancers, 9," per cent of lip. and SO per cent of tongue cases, accord ing to the American Society for the Control of Cancer. But an operation cannot cure a blood disease, and that is what a neg lected cancer soon becomes. The original seat of the cancer can be cut out—but once the cancer cell gets into the blood, it circulates through the body, breaks down sound tissue, and produces any number of abnormal growths. It is a peculiarity of women that when they think they have cancer symptoms they usually conceal their thoughts. If their fear proves true, they endure their mental agony in silence until finally physical suffering forces them to talk to the family doctor. Then it is too late. It is just this kind of secretiveness and unnecessary martyrdom which the physicians and surgeons are now en deavoring to combat, for it is conceal ment in the first stages which makes so many cases of the disease incur able. NEGLECTED BOY CROP. Somebody swiped Johnny's mitt to day. Maybe Ma said she didn't have any money for another. So Johnny laid for Dad at the corner and de manded a sum sufficient to meet his sad necessity. Maybe Dad was feeling pretty tired of a. good many things, but chiefly of the high cost of everything, and so lie replied accordingly. Then Johnny teased. And was scolded. Or worse. And he will not care what he does tomorrow, if he can't have another catcher's mitt. Poor Johnny! He beongs to the country's neglected boy crop. And vet few persons look upon him as neglected. His parents are thrifty, temperate, conscientious. They see that the boy lias plenty of food, baths and clothes. They see that Johnny has pretty nearly everything he wants—EX CEPT AM CSEMENT. They leave Johnny to find that for himself. But when he does find it, they call it mischief. Now if Johnny were a waif, some body would take great pains to see that he had his two weeks in the country, and that he was especially provided with work arrd play enough to keep him out of mischief. But Johnn's parents axe industrious —and just a little too busy to censor Johnny's entertainment. They are also provident—and just a trifle too much interested in saving for the future to give the right kind of attention to the present. That is why the boys in some of the most respectable families turn out badly. Everybody is too busy to look after them. Money is too previous to spend on them. And the chances are that a few quarters invested -over and over in bats, balls, mitts and masks would pay far greater dividends in Johnny' character than many dollars saved for Johnny's bant, account or college course. With the people in' full possession of Mexican conditions, it is going to be hard to convince the voters that President Wilson is heart and soul for preparedness. WITH THE MOVIES n- GRAND 0 "I'm getting to be the worst sort of a picture fan." says Victor Moore, who im\kes his second appearance as a phbfoplay star in "Chimmie Fadden" under the management of the Lasky Peature Play company. "Hefore I tried picture acting my self I never gave the subject much attention, though I used to drop into some good photoplay theater now and then, especially when on tour outside of Xew Vork. Rut the moment I be gan to pose for my first Lasky pic ture, 'Snobs.' I began lo wonder what it would look like on the screen, and that's how I got the fever, lirst to see myself on the screen and then to see other people 1 had known under the same conditions. "I heliove that the interest in pho toplays is just about as wonderful as the photoplays themselves. Xow I've come, to be a regular booster for 1 lit* fi I in and interested through and through." There will also be a big Charlie Chaplin comedy. "The Star llorder," and with the Llg Monkey Circus and the Olympic Four the Grand sure have a big time show for its patrons. TIRE PRICES ONLY A FRACTION OF WHAT THEY WERE TEN YEARS AGO Although there has been a slight advance in tire prices, the motorist may find consolation in the thought that tires now cost only about one third as much and give about ten times as much mileage as they- did a decade ago. The present advance is only a drop in the bir-ket—a SUM backward, if you will, but certainly not to be compared to the rough and tumble prices of gasoline that we al! see every year. The tire that costs you $20.00 now, used to cost $i!0.iio. You can safely expect anywhere from five to ten thousand miles from it. in the old days you were lucky if you got fr five hundred to a thousand miles. The first American tire on the market, was the Diamond in 1S9'. There were no precedents establishsd. Juani'.a Hansen, star in "The Secret of the Submarine" at the Bismarek today. BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE UNCLE SAM—WELL, IF I MUST, I MUST! on experience to go by except what had been learned in making bicycle tires and garden hose. Hence the first automobile tire was a single tube affair. Punctures were a constant bugaboo and frantic efforts were made to 1 a substitute for the pneumatic rubber automobile tire, There hasn't been any substitute, and from present indications there never will be, for rubber has been the road. Rubber compounds are now a cer tainty. The double tube tire makes the old single tube look foolish. The carrying capacity of different sizes is absolutely known. Xon-skid treads have been developed and in fact every element of utility has been so thor oughly incorporated in the modern automobile tire, that the makers have actually had time to make it look handsome. Take, for instance, the final touch of color. The Diamond has .a black Squeegee tread with red side walls. The subdue but elegant finishings the modern car now find their com plement. in the Diamond black and red tire. Minn sice When I placed my signature on the contract that calls for all of Charlie Chaplin's latest and best comedies— "GET THAT"—under his new Mutual contract that calls for a salary of JtiTu.oiM for one year's work, I signed the record breaking contract held by any theater in Bismarck for two-reel features. In securing these new Chaplin comedies 1 did so in order to give my many patrons the newest pic tures made by Charlie Chaplin, and when I say they are the best ever made by this wonderful little comed ian, you can rest assured you are go ing to see just what is represented. I am not looking for any sympathy or free advertising, but my attention was called to an announcement regarding Chaplin comedies to be shown at a certain magic-lanter theater in this city three or four days each week and later on will be shown daily, in cluding Mutual, Keystone and Essa nay Chaplin comedies, as well as oth er" big features featuring this great comedian. Do not be misled, movie fans, for you will not see Chaplin in his latest comedies made by the Mu tual company at the theater that made the announcement that they would show them. As far as the Keystone comedies are concerned, I can get any number of them from $1.50 to $2.o0 per reel per day, but I do not care to run a bunch of repeaters, as 1 have run all of them during the past three years, some of them being shown here as many as three differ ent times. You will see the XEW CHAPLIX comedies in addition to our regular program and the admission is only 10 and 13 cents, and the cost of this extra two-reel feature for o:ie day represents more than SIX of the two reel Keystone's would amount to. so you can see the difference in quality right there. And when it comes *o first-class features, how do you like Fox, Metro. Mutual Masterpictures and "The Girl and The Game," as well as the world's biggest special produc tions that I am presenting as soon as they can be secured? I have been connected with my present theater for EIGHT years and that should speak some for the class of amuse ment that I have offered during those ypars. And when it comes to projec tion on the screen, I will l^ave that to you, movie fans. The first CHAPLIX comedy under the MUTUAL brand vill be shown next week, and the title is "The Floor Walker" in two reels. Watch for the date and see Chaplin at his best. We feature high-class photo plays. THE ORPHEUM, Arthur Bauer, Mgr.

Butte, Mont., June 2a.—The semi monthly crop report of the Hanking Corporation of Montana shows im proved agricultural conditions. ft says in part.: "Agricultural conditions in general have improved materially since tile issuoance of our last report. The period of cold weather which was ac companied by high winds and a noticable lack of rainfall has been followed bv a period of warm .and rainy weather, so that the outlook is prac'/cally every section of the state is bright. "Except,for flax, seeding is practi cal./ finished. Winter wheat that has not previously been damaged is mak ing a good start. Our estimate of 2." per cent winter wheat loss in the last report bas been corroborated in a re cent government report. In ibis re port the possible crop of winter wheal is estimated at 11 ,li-"i".0U0 bushels, as against a liil't crop of 1 S,22-",0()0 tz C.B.

On the other hand, an in crease in the production of spring wheat, is anticipated, so that Mon 'ana's wheat crop will probably be about, the same as. a year ago. "The outlook for a fruit crop has not improved. Apple and cherry bulls that survived the winter were dam aged by frosts running from May 10 lo .May in. From the present out look it is not reasonable to expect that Monrnnas fruit. civ-p will be a^ much as ."() per cent oi last year s. "The condition ol' Montana stock is about the same as at the correspond ing, time a year ago. This situation, in view oi' the severe weather, is agreeable to all stock raisers." R. A.
