Criticising Under Dlfllcullles

Till: KINSTUN llll t PK1SS
The Kinston Free Press has
changed hands, Mr. II. Gait
Rraxton of Raleigh being the
new editor. From what we
have heard of Mr. Braxton, we
predict a howling success for f
the Free Press under his man-!
agement The Free Press is a i
good paper, located in a good
section and there is no reason in
the world why the paper under
Mr. I'raxton's experienced man
agement should not make good
in every sense of the word.
Till: CHAMBER 111 COMMERCE
The greatest force in the mak
ing of cities to-day is the Cham
ber of Commerce or association
of the business men of the cities
I'm-the purpose of advertising
the advantage's of their particu
lar locality and the oll'ering of
inducements to manufacturing
plants, new businesses, etc., to
locate in their community.

put forward as proof the fact
that they grew!

Not since the Civil War has an
administration of the Govern- j
ment of the United States had to
deal with as difficult and embar- i

fraught with dangerous possibil-'
ities as that which has faced the
present administration during
practically its entire tenure of
Compared with the Mexican
situation, the tariff question and :

cause of its refusal to extend the
right hand of fellowship to the '
murderer Huerta, the adminis-,

sane middle course through the
whole perplexing dilemma. It
abstained from armed interven

ties as long as it could honorably
do so. When that course be
came imperative, it went about
it in a quiet and dignified way:

A Real Advertiser
Speaking of advertising, the
late Andrew Lang, according
to the Outlook, makes this
suggestive little comparison: -"When
a goose lays an egg
she just waddles off as if she
were ashamed of it just be
cause she is a goose. When
,a hen lays an egg ah, she
calls heaven and earth to wit
ness it. The hen is a natural
born advertiser. 1 Ience the
demand for hen's eggs ex
ceeds the demand for goose
eggs, and the hen has all the
business she can attend to."
Are you a goose?
Apropos of the sunny summertime, (lowers in May-and the
flowers that blossom on the sporting page as well, we quote the
following "baseball sonnet" by A. J. Priest from Collier's Weekly:
l'aseball, thou art my god; I do adore thee,
My soul is thrilled when I see Johnson on the mound,
Of watch the runner's spikes tear up the ground:
In good sooth thou dost stir me unto ecstasy.
Impatiently I do await the coming spring,
For basketball hut poorly fills the interim,
Utterly failing to appease the fan's fond whim.
We do attend thee, baseball; we would crown thee king.
Oh, Time, thy wings are leaden. Come, make haste
And bring these winter months unto their close.
Baseball's the only sport for my nice taste, '
Sliced, Time, or 1 will yank thy wrinkled nose. j

His zeal in his task of impressing

little differently now, but every

As events now stand, it looks
as if very little more will have to
be done in the way of military
operations. Every dispatch from
Mexico City tells of the hasten
ing of the crumbiing up process
with the Huerta regime, the
more friendly spirit being evinc
ed by Mexicans toward the Amer
icans and the increase of the
Mexicans everywhere toward
the Huerta regime.
No man can safely prophesy
the result, but what looked im
jiossible last week, seems very
nearly accomplished now. It
looks like from now on as if the
critics of the administration will
be criticising under difficulties.
Just what some of them would
have accomplished if they had
been allowed to handle the Mex
ican situation in . their way, is
fearful to contemplate.
