If the rule of attend ing strictly to one’s own affairs is not followed, business may stick as long as there is no other place to trade. PART of the days news during the past few years has been the accounts of exposures of public officials whose itching palms have handled bribe money. Other officials secured victory by proclaiming that they were as dry as the sands of the desert, when in fact they were personally wet, or mixed up in rings making a profitable revenue out of the prohibition law- Personally they were sober, morally they were worse than the alcoholic victim who has lost all sense of pride or shame. The latter has wronged himself and his family; the former betrays the confidence of the people who voted for him. The voters this year, no matter what their opinion is regarding en forcement, repeal, or modification of the prohibition law, are going to be more careful in estimating the sincerity of a candidate if their campaigning is based solely on the wet or dry issue. YOU cannot judge the financial standing of a man by the elegance of the automobile he is driving. This fact was demonstrated in Florence a few years back when the owner of a dilapidated flivver driving thru the country was found to have nearly SIOO,OOO. The man had been arrested for hitting one of his boys on the head with a milk bottle and surprised the officers by demanding the presence of a banker before being searched. The man had all his money on his person in currency and bonds. If he had invested this money at the time in Casa Grande Valley property would have been a millionaire by now. The last heard of this financier was a year after his visit here when the newspapers stated that the boys returned from California to their home town in the east because their father would not let them have enough to eat. This man was a miser of a sort. Another sort is the man who drives an expensive, unpaid for, automobile, and does not pay his bills. Neither one help a community grow. THE Phoenix Gazette is all worked up about the ex travagance of the republican administration of the state of Arizona. Long editorials handle the subject in a gen eral manner, not quoting any particular instance. There is no mention of the appropriation bill passed by the leg islature which set forth certain amounts to be spent by the various departments of state, allowing for construction of buildings, drilling of wells, maintenance of state institu tions, etc. The editorials just take a broad, all-embracing slam at the administration, meaning of course the govern or, and Board of Directors of state institutions. The ed itorials bear the ear mark's of being the same class of bunk fed to voters during the last part of the term of Tom Campbell, a republican governor, some time past. Tom was governor, but a democratic legislature set the pace on appropriations, just as was done last year- The edito-l rial spell binder of the Gazette is either a new hand un acquainted with the political situation in Arizona, or an old hand knowing that something has to be done to dis credit the governor, and the one office under republican control, so the old files of the paper must have been re sorted to in search of vicious slam material, which nowa days proves to be the worst method of attack. So far there have been no rumors of any department either with a republican or democratic head, charged with making jobs for new voters. That policy of politics has not been charged against the present administration of state de partments. There is no evidence of the machine control that existed so long under other administrations. REGARDLESS of the merits of prohibition as a legal or moral issue, it must be admitted by any thinking per son who is able bodied enough to be around and observing enough to be able to grasp what is going on about him that the wine grape industry has not been hurt by the great drought decreed by the nation’s lawmakers. It is downright silly, too, for anyone to contend, as some of the more ardent and ophimistic bone-dry advocates do, that the wine grapes that are being produced in increas ing volume by California’s vinyardists are no longer going into the naughty light wines that were once the pride of the state, but are being used for a loh of other mysterious but none the less sweetly innocent purposes. There seems to be no doubt at all, to put the thing quite candidly and honestly, that the wine grape industry of the golden state has not only been saved, but actually advanced by what has come to be known as “home brewing,” or in other words, by the manufacture from grapes of the stuff that is so objected to by the prohibitionists. No one has ever seemed quite certain just what could or could not be le gally done with grapes within the four walls of one’s own home, so insanely contradictory and confusing have been the emenations on the. subject from Washington and the various state and city governments of the country. It is probably equally true, however, that very few have cared a whoop. People who have wanted to make wine have gone ahead and made it—and the vinyardists have pros pered accordingly. These comments are not made with any idea of pointing a moral- They are printed out of love for wholesome, decent candor, something hard to find in these days of pussy-footing propaganda and practical politics.—Phoenix, Arizona Messenger.

(Prepared by the t’nited States Depart ment of Agriculture.) Whether the horse continues to decline in numbers by reason of displacement by the motor car and tractor, or not, the bor.se business is due for better times, in the opin ion of J. O. Williams of the United States Department of Agriculture. The number of horses on the farms of the country declined in 1028 to the lowest point yet recorded, but the market stiffened or advanced. Mr. Williams points out that for several years farmers have been breeding and raising only about half as many colts as are required for replacement of the diminished number of work animals in use. “Inferior horses of all types are a drag on the market, and undoubt edly will continue to be so,” says Mr. Williams. "But the difficulty with the horse and mule situation in recent years has been largely psychological. Breeders of horses and mules have wondered whether there would ever be a recurrence in demand for work stock and have been timid about resuming breed ing operations. This has resulted in the present shortage of good work and pleasure animals, a situ ation which promises to become much more acute within the next few years. We believe that farm ers should now study their farm power situation; those who will continue to use horses and mules can now replace aging animals with young stock before an acute short age occurs. That farmers are beginning to realize this situation is reflected by a study the Department of Agricul ture recently made of the number of stallions and jacks in service in 24 states. The number of these has declined sharply in recent years, but owners in some localities re ported that last year witnessed a considerable increase in the number of mares bred. Cross-Breeding Tests at University of California At the University of California cross-breeding with sheep tests throw light on the best rams to use. on pure-bred Rambouillet ewes Southdown, Shropshire, Suffolk, Romney Marsh, Hampshire and Rambouillet rams were used, one rant to 20 ewes. When between four and live months old the lambs were graded. The Southdown lambs —10 raised —weighed an average of 78.5 pounds, grading 43.7.1 per cent choice, with average value of $10.03 for all. Shropshires—-24 lambs— weighed 70.7 pounds, grading 41.7 per cent choice, with average value of $10.07. Hampshire*—22 lambs —weighed 70.3, grading 3 per cent choice, with average value of $0.13. Suffolk® —13 lambs —weighed 81.6 pounds, with average value of $9.95. Romneys —19 lambs —weighed 77.5 pounds, grading 36.8 per cent choice, with average value of $9.25. Rambouillets —21 lambs—weighed average 70.1 pounds, grading 19 per cent choice, valued at $8.83. The Suffolk's bred the smallest number of lambs, 13, which, howev er, made the greatest weights, but graded only 3 per cent choice. The f-’e-tlide .ns also bred only 16 lambs, but made 78.5 pounds weight and the high percentage of choice grade, which put them at the top in value. Advertise in The Coolidge Ex aminer.

Today, however, this custom is practically extinct, despite all reports to the contrary, being found only on a few remote farms or in little Cape Ood villages.

Over love, an Intermediate schoolgirl stabbed her classmate, another girl, to death with 4G wounds —veritably cutting her body to pieces, and the juvenile murderess seemed scarcely per turbed when arrested, confessing all. Over personal pride a peasant slew a household, four persons, man, wife, and their two children, with his bolo. Given to drinking, he was making a drunkard’s boister ous headway past the house. The man, thinking to shame him. scold ed him from the window overlook ing the street, and called him “un borrachin,” a common drunkard. Less than five minutes later he had wiped out the family. A Malay Is never to be safely Insulted in the presence or hearing of third parties. Magna Charta King John affixed his seal to the document called the Magna Charta on June 15, 1215, having been com pelled to do so by the barons and their followers. In June of that year both parties encamped on the plain called Runnymede, on the banks of the Thames, near Windsor, and conferences were opened be tween the king and the barons. The barons presented their grievances and the means of redress, In the na ture of bills offered for the royal as sent. The king directed that these articles should be reduced to the fora of a charter, and In this form It was drawn up by the clerks, In Latin. Many of its provisions were lased on a previous charter granted by King Henry I In the year 1100. ■-LEADING-• ———— TRADIO PROGRAMS (Tims given is Eastern Standard: subtract on* hour for Central and tWS hours tor Mountain time.)
