LISTEN TO THE CHOIR.
We are informed by an es-
timable public official that at
Monterey recently a number
of Mexicans joined him in
singing the Star Spangled Ban
ner. This fact he presents as
proof that the Mexicans arc an
amiable people and do not
make border raids.
Unfortunately, the best inat
it can prove is that there are
some Mexicans who do not
make border raids while they
are singing the Star Spangled
Banner with this estimable of
ficial. But while they were
thus fraternizing there wye
other Mexicans who were mur
dering an American and sub
jecting his wife to gastly bru
It 'does not prove that all
Mexicans are amiable. It does
not prove that any of them are.
Singing the Star Spangled Ban
ner is not proof of a lofty im
pulse. It may be camouflage
But, at best, what is the use of
n few of them singing the S. S.
B. at Monterey while there are
swarms of them elsewhere just
waiting for an opportunity to
alit an American throat and pit

We are supposed to bo

about 60,000, and claims to
rule a" population of 15,000,.

tains several rebel factions,
each with pretentions to tho
control of certain portions of
Mexico. Any politcment
which we may ehow to the Car-
iranzn government any act o
I official recognition is t-tita
mount to a slur on the claims o
all of the other factions And
one or more of these factions
retaliate by murdering u few
more Americans. It is sad
than to murder some of Car-
ran za's party.
As a mater of fact, about the
safest thing any one can do in
Mexico is to murder an Aiiieri

WORK FOR THE SOLDIER.
By far the greater part of
our young men coming home
from the war are strong and
well. Outdoor life, plain
hearty food and vigorous phy
sical exercise have combined to
buila up their physique.
Many of them who were in-
door workers oetore the war
find that the abundant vigoi
they have gained inspires them
toward life in the open. For
men of this inclination the
farms of the country offer an
ine working season is on
and the farmers are calling for
help. They are willing to pay
wages that are comparatively
high, when we consider that
room and board ore included
Necessary expenses are few, so
that a young man could save
nearly all of his wages. And
in the meantime he is living a
wholesome life and is squiring
a knowledge oi practical farm
ing which in the future may hn
of great value to him.
In case he should desire
eventually to buy a small f'.rm
of his own the information
which he has gained about s il
and location will aid him in his
selection and prevent him from
making a poor investment
We would recommend to the
young man who is doubtful
about his employment to take
into consideration farm work.
He will at least have well pay
ing work for several months,
which will leave him as 'husky
as he is at present. And by
that time there may be a larger
lield for employment of every
kind than there is now.
No, the Ohio landlord who
voluntarily reduced the rent of
his tenants is not a candidate
for public office or matrimony.
He is just living in the wrong
age an age in which the Gold
en Rule has been kicked into
tho discard and forgotten,
while greed and avarice have
taken its plarc.

Every father who had a son in the

is intelligent, progressive and patri

he did not hesitate or plead exemp

an enviable record In the rrmy. He
