are the principles which have determined all recent improvements of the Remington Typewriter Take, for ex-ample, that latest exclusive Remington improvement, the TABULATOR SET KEY. The Set Key of the Decimal Tabulator eliminates all hand setting of the, Tabulator stops. It makes the setting of these stops for any kind of form or tabular work as quick, as easy and as simple as the operation of the Tabulator itself. This is another important, labor saving step toward the goal of Remington effort, which is to bring every essential act in the operation of the typewriter within the compass of the key board. The labor saving value of the Set Key of the Model 11 Remington is attested by thousands of operators.

Fre-tler ef the United States. On the other hand, Mexico is now to take the part of our great west. It is to be the frontier of the United States, and with settled conditions the big estates will gradually be divided. Many of them will go into the hands of bona fide development companies and will be accessible to American settlers. Such will be the Mexican part of the Im perial valley, which is to have its share of the waters of the Colorado river for irrigation. The lands there are as rich as the'vallev of the Nile and quite equal to those now being worked in the United States. , . , , There are also large tracts of low lands near the coast which will be opened to the growing of coffee and bananas and other tropical fruits, and there are already some profitable trop ica! estates operated by American syn dicates. Just before the revolutionary troubles began, American planters were coming in by the hundreds and settling the coast lands near the Caribbean sea. Many had holdings near Tampicq, oth ers had bousht timber lands farther south, some were prospecting for pe troleum and some were looking up rub ber investments. I say there were many of these in vestors. The term is only comparative The permanent American residents or Mexico at that time were notnore than 40.004 which Is a small number com pared with the total population here, which is about 16,000.000. Today thous ands of these Americans have left. Others have stayed and sent their fam ilies home, and still others have given up in despair on account of the unset tled conditions. Indeed. I Jubt tha there are more than 15,000 or JO.000 Americans living in Mexico today. Chances er Yohbr Men. There is no opportunity for a young man here without capital, and It seems to me there wilt be but little for a long time to come. The common labor is done by the Indian, who works for one third or one-fifth what the ordinary day laborer of the United States re ceives. and the wages of mechanics are not one-third those of the United States. There are no chances for clerks or etty bookkeepers. There are many yoimg Mexicans who can keep books, and they can sell goods as well as we can and will do It at one-third our Weis only skilled labor and special ability that command high prices. I refer to such professions as engineer ing and those of the electrical and min ing experts. Such men are In demand, and if they can speak Spanish they can find plenty to do. Big MiHM?y For Deatbts. A& to professional men, Mexico has Its own doctors and lawyers. It has a smattering of native dentists, but there are many American dentists who are doing well. Said one of these to me the other day: , -I made $5000 the first year I came here and mv receipts now are about $tt00 a month.' I can charge bigger prices than at home and I have gotten as much as $100 for a full set of teeth upon rubber. Whenever I administer gas I charge $1 for pulling a tooth. although when I yank out half a dosen I reduce that rate to $5 for each tooth after the first. In gold fillings my prices are $5 and upward, according to I Kj, Mvltr and ftl DAnk ftC- mi nt tho man who has his teeth fined. I get big money for bridgework and I have made $500 and upward oat of a single mouth." This dentist spoke Spanish and he had picked up the language after com ing to Mexico. ... . tT. ViiMBMrr. As a rule. It is almost impossible to get along here with nothing but Eng- lief, the Spanish language IS not easy to learn. One can pick up a smattering within a few months, but to get a good .A.iri. lnnwimisrp it reaulres a year n- n at hard study. There are some professions In which one must have Spanish to enter.

To such' Mexico has been painted as an El Dorado, whose treas ure vaults may be opened as easily as was the cave to the Forty Thieves to our old friend All Baba, and also as a Garden of Eden, where you may sow coffee, cocoahuts and bananas, and then lie in the shade of the trees until the fruit drops into your mouth. A Warning to In esters. The truth is far different. Just now, in these days of rebellion, brigandage and political unrest, there is no chance at all for the small man. When the country is quiet and peace Is returned it wUl be different, and. as I shall show farther on, the opportunities for large profits will probably be greater than In the United States. Mexico Is ready for a mighty development and there are millions of American dollars which will roll down over the border as soon as our capitalists can be sure that they will be permanently safe. One or the consuls tells me that during the last years of the Diaz regime new money was coming in by the tens of thousands of dollars a day. This money was dammed back by the revo lutionary troubles and it only awaits stable conditions to break forth in a tidal wave over the republic If this is so it will pay the big man and the little man to keep his eyes upon Mexico. But as I have suggested. It will pay the small man to watch out.

This U the verdict of the consuls, of mining engineers and of American business men, who have traveled over the country. The opportunities are here, but the field has been largely exploited by fake companies and stock jobbing syn dicates. These men, by promising enor mous returns, have persuaded the small man to invest what he had and to mortgage his future for additional sums, to be paid on monthly instal ments. Most of such companies have failed, and many of them have been fakes, pure and simple. The bona fide capitalists here are satisfied with 10 or 15 per cent profit, and if there were many investments which would net them 100 percent they would grab them. This is so not only of mines. but of tropical agriculture, and it is safe to say that any man who prom ises 500 percent profit within five or ten years is a fraud. Advlee From liaeie Sam's Ageata. One of the most careful observers of the men sent here by the government, is Charles M. Pepper, who was long a correspondent or the Chicago Tri bune. In a report to congress he stated that no American school teacher, clerk, day laborer, seamstress or college professor, who had only a few hun dred dollars of savings, had any right to risk them In a Mexican stock com pany, especially in those relating to tropical plantations. He advised them to take their little hordes, and throw them into the sea and leave a record of the place where the bubbles came up for their STandchildren rather than to put tht-m into .such compano s with tht 1 opi that th would .r itit 1 i k ;i. t'i. m or t1'. ir iri ui.!. h l.n . n UiK of. Ov.r uoual rKiali s iijjt The best lands for this crop are In the southern part of the country. Rubber is very capricious, and it is most pro ductive where there is plenty of water in the soil, and where, nevertheless, the dry season Is long. Rubber trees grow well in Chiapas and Tabasco, two states which will be opened up by the Pan-American railroad. A most interesting form of the rub ber now being exported from Mexico from a plant which prows wild on the mgnianas ajiu wuiuu io uiujkiu& u millions of dollars a year. Guayule has long been known to contain rub ber, but the rubber in it was thought to be of little value. It Is now known to be excellent. The supply, however, is limited. Only a little comes from each plant, and 375,000 tons is esti mated to be the total possible output. The best regions are now yielding about a quarter of a ton per acre, and although the territory where the plant grows Is large, the area where it can be profitably exploited is not as great as that of South Carolina. It Is found as far north as Texas and as far south as Pachuca, In Mexico, having a native age is less than 15 busneis per acre, habitat as large as California. But it whereas it might be as much as in is fOUni only here and there, growing the best parts of the states. There is at Varving altitudes and usually on a big local demand for corn. The 8tony ground. The rubber in the mer- cnantaDie pianis ranges irum j lo u percent of the weight, and so far the most of the product has been from the wild plants. Salvador Madero. of Mon terey, who Is largely Interested in the Industry, tells me that attempts to force the growth of one crop by Irri gation have been failures. The plants thrive, but they yield no rubber to speak of. I understand that $60,000, 000 is now invested in the industry. Mexico IVerks TJnele Sam's Jawn. There la another product here In which Americans have been making a great deal of money. This Is chicle, which forms the base of our chewing gums, and of which we consume mil lions of pounds every year. Chicle comes from the sap of the sapote tree, which Is tapped for the purpose. The sap is collected In about the same way as that of the sugar maple: save that the trees, instead of having holes bored into them, are cut in V-shaped incis ions and the sap flows out into a trough at the center and drops into a pail at the foot of the trunk. The chicle trees grow only In the tropics. They are from 40 to 50 feet high and they have a pear-like fruit. It costs little to take care of them. They are planted at about 10 feet apart, or about 400 to the acre, and they should yield at eight or ten years. Kach tree will produce five or six pounds of gum. and If carefully tapped should continue to produce for 20 years. The chicle industry Is now con ducted by a trust operated under a concession from the Mexican govern ment, which gets a certain percentage of the product In 1910 the exports of the gum were in the neighborhood of Jl.000.000. and It Is estimated that In bulk they were sufficient to have made a Washington monument of solid chew ing gum blocks.

Still, It is the staple food of two-thirds of the people, and the price for a number of years past has been double that of the United States. It is the same with wheat, Mexico not raising near enough of either grain to feed her own people. The methods of wheat growing are exceedingly crude. On the smaller farms the grain Is cut by hand, and In some places thrashed out by driving oxen over it. In the state of Sonora every locality has its thrashing pita. These are about 30 or 40 feet in diame ter and one or two feet deep. The bottoms of such pits are pounded smooth and treated so that they are as hard as If covered with concrete. The wheat Is thrown Into the pit and the grain trodden out by the feet of horses or donkeya The wheat Is then cleaned bv throwing if against the wind, which blows away the chaff, the wheat fall ing on a sheet or blanket .On the larger haciendas modern machinery Is used, and there are some which have steam thrashers and steam plows.

As to coffee, the trees thrive almost anywhere at an elevation of from 2500 to 4000 feet and from 500 to 1000 trees can be grown on one acre.
