In the purported confession ascribed to

branded as "totally absurd."
Archbishop Mora continued:
"Neither don Venustiano Carranza
nor another person need have a fear
that Mexican bishops and clergy may
be an obstacle to the restoration of
peace in Mexico, since such restoration
has been the aim of all our works, writ

tributed, either by our sermons or by
our writings, either secretly or pub
licly and far less financially, to over
throw Francisco Madero's government.
"Our behaior toward Huerta's gov

On yesterday I advertised a Ford (oaring car lor ale. and in looking
over the commas ot your paper I find it Beted in the Poultry column. I never
knew before that a Vord wag of this specie, sat I reckon it grts its title to
such owing to the fact that they are "Roosters." At any rate, no matter
what its genealogy or in what location it was placed, it is jold. and therefore
I have no kick coming. I simply want to know if a Ford is a fowl, what is
a fowl? Does anything that flies, wings or no wings, take that classification?
