The reason there is no bread is
that 50 or SO years a&o a shipwreck

ashore so that since that time no
wheat has been raised. But the men
say they are going to try again when
the next mail in a year or two brings

are in no hurry: if there isn't any
bread they can be content on potatoes.
To supplement their potatoes, fish

USE OF HORSES
IN BULL FIGHTS
Mexico City. Mexico. Jan. t. There
is agitation here against the use of
horses in bull fighting. One contrib
utor writing to a local paper objects
on the eronnd that the bulls will kill
so many horses that the supply of
them tor transportation in tne city
will be depleted. '
Protest on behalf of the horses is
confined to those who are not keen
followers of the sport. A true bull
fierht fan will tell any one that a
horse, even though he is gored and
mutilated by an angry bull, is a ne
cessary adjunct to the fight and plays
a part in keeping with the picador
wno mounts mm.
However, the sight of a gored ani
mal running frantically around the
arena fleeing because of his blindfold,
from he knows not what, has sent
many hundreds home from the games
before they were completed. This
was especially noticeable when the
United States excursionists were here
for president ODregon s Inauguration
e re monies.
President Obregon has given his
sanction of the sport by appearing
one Sunday afternoon when Rodolfo
Gaona and Ernesto Pastor fought
Jointly. He occupied a ringsiae seat.
When Pastor slaying the last bull.
made what appeared to be a death
thrust the president arose to leave
and the band immediately struck up
the national anthem. Tbe boll, how
ever, was not dead and started to
At the sound of the anthem he
stopped In his tracks, lowered his
head and with Pastor standing at
rigid attention not three feet from
the Dull s norns, tne nymn was wm
nleted. A second later the bull tumb
led over dead. Veteran tight goers
asserted the spectacle was the
strangest ever seen In the local arena.

The ruling of the treasury is not
paternalistic. It is no sudden out
burst of generosity, but is a strictly
legal interpretation of the revenue
law. Legal experts figured it out
that unless the government permitted
firms to use present market values
as a basis for cost, the government
would be exacting money that was
not actually earned and business
houses could contest the ruling in
the courts and probably win. by con
tending that the sums taken by the
