Ami yot, when Salvador and Coat Rlcs are compared with Porto Kim, I hey in turn seem tn be SlO in their development. Porto Rica Is so small that seven islands like ii would be required to covei an ares equal to thai of Costa Klca. vet It BBS a foreign trade live times as gTOBl as that of the Bans as Bmplre, Porto Rico is less than half as lai-e as Salvadnr, yet il has a foreign trade seven times as great Porto Rico's Trade Increasing.

Prospers Through Government. Similar comparisons are mad be tween Cuba and the six republics With an ana oiie-tifth as great, its foreign 'nn roe is three times that nf the six. "ne mi; lit Km on With these comparisons Indefinitely, the lesson of them all being that prosperity caaaot exist where good I'nVeriunelit does not," continues the writer, "With vast iteposits nf minerals, un told thousands of acres nf the tines! tropical fruit and vegetable lands in the iroMd, and wist areas nf magBlfl- ii nt grsglng and conTee lande, Hondur aa Is at our very doors.
