WESTERN LIBERAL LORDSBUHU - NEW MEXICO Farl V. Buh, Editor and Owner Published Every Friday. And many a lasa baa responded to the call to arms. As an article of food raspberries are strangely beautiful to took at. When rlrnl ball teams fall out emp ty pop bottles get their Innings. It appears that every nation In the crorld la for peace on Its own terms. Life should take on a brighter hue lince the arrival of that cargo of Ger man dyes. One encouraging feature about a watermelon-eating contest Is that the losers also win. Saramer resort girls making clothes for soldiers refuse to rob the poor to enrich themselves. After tho world gets back Its an cient peace It should pay moro atten tion to lubrication. One rather fancies that one more than earns what one saves In fare on a cut rate excursion. Our Idea of a happy medium Is one that can locate lines of good fortune In the hands of time. A Phlladolphlan says fried eggs are conducive to Insanity. So that's what's the matter with us. Is It? If you nurse your grouch too long, It will never be able to stand nlone and take care of Itself. That Institution chartered to "teach tho science of war by mall" Is not a matrimonial bureau, either. People who teach summer school and people who go to summer school will at least be acclimated. It Isn't work or worry that ex liausts men, but having to listen to men who talk from empty heads. Money would be a great deal more popular than It Is If men could bet all they wanted of It without working. Let us hope the Increase In tho price of Unen collars won't release any moro "sport" shirts from captivity. Still, If observation Is to bo relied upon, the fear of the nverage man that he may work too hard Is usually unfounded. A man Is sure that he hears the voice of the people If he has the Itch for odlcc and seven m.-n ask him to run for dog peltcr. naked beans may become a luxury, owing to government demand, and In tellectuality may face a famlno In Its principal nutriment. The man who advocates tho eating of bugs Is no refutation of the old theory that a man partakes of tho na turo of what he eats. Men do not seem to bo very busy In Tenting things to mitigate the horrors of war, being chiefly enguged In mak ing war moro horrible. It takes two to raise n man's wages his employer who has to pay the money und the employee who Is under some trilling obllgutlon to deliver the goods. Nobody can read the summer re sort liiioUlctH (lint now (III the malls without being convinced thut there's mill n good deul of optimism left In the world. Don't u so shingles for rooting.

When the temperature reaches 105 degrees In the shade, a community ought to see to It thut there Is plenty of simile. When tree-planting time corned remember this.
