OFFICIAL PAPER OF NAVAJO COUNTY Mr. Pultizerhas gone to Pan ama to see if he is as much of a liar as he has been cracked up to be. Castro ran out just in time to escape being kicked out. "Grab your dollars when your're young," advises Uncle Andrew Carnegie. Then when you are old you can let the tariff twins do your work If divorces keep on increasing, the nation's alimony bill will ri val its Panama Canal expenses The Pungtown Debating So ciety will discuss the question "IsChristmas worth the money?" They are pulling down Castro statues and burning Castro pro traits in Venezuela. This is a bad year for dictators. . The Baltimore Sun's querry, "Can a man marry on $6 per week?" is still going the rounds of the press. The consensus of opinion seems to be that counts, barons, and things with incomes actually minus the figure named, can and do. President Roosevelt expects to gain some distinction by getting a white rhinoceros in Africa. On the other hand, just think how distinguished a white rhino would feel if it got a president Austria Hungary is said to be willing to give Turkey an indem nity of $20,000,000 for Herzego vina and Bosnia. Probably the double Empire might be willing to throw in another troublesome province or two to complete the bargain. The difference between hunting canvasback ducks and Venezuela ships of war is that the canvas back is more difficult to bag, but worth more when you get him. Two autocars of approved strenght and capacity have been ordered for the use of Preident elect Tatt, alter March 4th. Judge Taft is an honorary vice president of the American Asso ciation for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. It has been suggested that the society and his belief in its principles has had something to do with his deci sion not to use horses. Judge Taft is fond of riding horseback and of companionship in his rides, and he has said that conversa tion takes his mind off the suffer ing of his horse. The tariff controversy contin ues, notwithstanding the holiday lull throught the country and will continue to be the main top ic of discussion until the end of the extra session to be called by the new president after the lourth of March, for the revision of the Dingley Act. A long time ago when Moorish pirates crept troni their liar at Tarifa near Gibral tar to levy tribute from ships sailing upon the Mediterranean, they were engaged in a lawless, piratical warfare upon trade which it was necessary for civil ized nations to suppress. These pirates have been long since quieted and their seaport, Tarifa, from which the name of the svs tern came, is aboudoned. Thi legalized tariff tribute upon com merce still florishes in its most flagrant form in the Dingley Act The question is how much longer will this legal system of piracy be premitted to levy tribute upon the industry and trade of the greatest nation of the world. Is the Chignon Coming Back? Some intrepid hairdressers main tain that it is. They insist that (he mass of puffs and curls worn at tha back of the head now is its immediale forerunner.

It is equally necessary for the ruling rich and the oppressed poor to change their understanding of life; and it is easier for the poor than for the rich. Without alter ing their position the poor need only abstain from deeds contrary to love and not partici pate in such deeds, and all this organization opposed to love would collapse of itself. It is much more difficult for the rulers to ac cept and fulfill the teaching of love. To ful fill that teaching they would have to reject the snares that enthrall them; the snares of power and riches, and this is harder. The poor have only to refrain from engaging in new forms of violence, and especially from taking part in the old forms. As man develops so does humanity develop. The consciousness of love has grown and still grows in it, and has so grown in our day that we cannot help seeing that it must save us and become the basis of our life. For what is now going on arc but the last dying shudders of a life that was violent, evil, and loveless. Even now it cannot but be plain that all these struggles, all this hatred, is a meaningless deception, leading only to ever increasing calamities. It cannot but be clear that the sole, the simplest and the easiest sal vation from all this lies in admitting the basic source of the life of all men to be love; that source which inevitably, without any effort, replaces the greatest evil by the greatest blessedness. There is a tradition that the Apostle John, having reached extreme old age, was completely absorbed in one feeling which he always expressed in the same word, saying: "Children, love one another." This was the expression of one man's old age that is to say, it had the expression of life that had reached a certain stage. And just so, on reaching a certain stage, should the life of humanity express itself. What is one to love? The only answer is: Love all; love the source of love, love, love, love God. Love not for the sake of the loved one, nor for one's self, but for love's sake. It is only necessary to understand this, and at once all the evil of human life disappears. Love itself gives blessedness quite inde pendently of how other people act, and, in general, of all that takes place in the out side world. Love gives blessedness in that man, when loving, unites with God and not only desires nothing for himself but wishes to give all he has and his life hV'lf for others; and in surrender of himself to God, he finds his welfare. The loving man does not perish among the non loving. Or, if he perishes among men, as Christ per ished on the cross, then his death is joyful to him self and important to others; not despairing and in vtrnilicaiit, as is the dua.li of worldly people.
