THE MOHAVE COUNTY MINER, AND OUB MINERAL WEALTH. SATURDAY, JANUARY 24, 1920. SPEAKS OF IMPORTANCE OF MILITARY TRAINING In a recent article which he con tributed to the "Wildcat," Major Boni face, professor of military science and tactics at .the University of Arizona, gave forcible reasons for the estab lishment of a unit of the Reserve Of ficers' Training Corps in the universi ties of the United States and demon strated the great importance of this department in the University of Ari zona. His closing paragraphs are quoted below: "Military training teaches manli ness; courtesy, love of truth, clean mnral standards, crenerosity. self-sac rifice, unselfishness, forbearance, so briety, obedience to lawful authority. It shames petty meanness and ciude self-will, builds character, makes for finer citizenship, and spells team work when theJight comesr-team work, not for some selfish end, but for the greater end of the country's and the university's best good, that one other thing which the military training in culcates within us, and without which man is a failure and knows it loyalty not alone to our country, but hero in the faculty, to those who give us of their best, to our fellow students, to ourselves, and, above all, to God. Through loyalty to our country this university asked that there, be established within our university one of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps units, that it might truly rep resent our wonderful state of Arizo nTdssits loyalty to our students' comprehension and accep tance of their country's call that they train themselves during their college years and not delay until war comes upon us. Our "university, having this unit, is pulling along with the great team of universities throughout our land and today adding its military stu dents ot that total under R. 0. T. C. training which runs near 10,000 uni versity men." ' President David P. Barrows of the University of California is of the same mind as Major Boniface, as "preparadness" was the keynote of his first public address to the dtu donts nt Rerkelev. where several thou sand student soldiers and sailors took part in a great military review and manoeuvres last month. President Barrows was a colonel in the United States army during the wnrlH war. In hi.i nHdress to the stu dents who were reviewed by him, he said "The work of your organizaton is second in. importance to no other activity in the university. It is a part of every educated man's duty to ce prepared not only for the business of peace, but for the trials of war. It is the object of your organization that all men be given that training which will make them servicearble to the nation in times of danger. The dis tincraished nart nlaved bv this univer sitv dnrinc th war would never have been possible had it not been for-this organization."

But some of us hold that the millenium has not yet come, and that as long as human beings are as they are, we are apt to have war. There fore it becomes necessary for our country to prepare for any possible emergency. Such preparation lends more than anything else to the pres ervation of peace.

Chronometer Exceeds Its Previous Record, Varying Slx-Hundredths of Second. Showing a dally variation of but six one-hundredths of a second, says the Philadelphia Record, a chronometer entered In the competition at the Gen eva conservatory exceeded the former record made In the year 1891 by onei hundredth of a second. One hundred and sixteen chronometers were entered In the 1918 contest, against 132 In 1917 and 106 In 1916. Of these 116 entries, five were marine chronometers and 111 pocket chronometers or watches, twd of the latter being complicated plec.es. Professor Baoul Oautler, of the In dustrial Arts society, writes Consul Lewis W. Hassel from Geneva, In read ing a report on the competition, glvea some Interesting details on the tests which are made to determine the ac curacy of the timepieces. The chrc-i nometers are graded on a scale of 1,000 points. The Ideal watch would be, granted 300 points for Its dally pre-l clslon, 300 points for Its ability to sup port changes of position, 300 points for Its ability to support changes of temperature, and 100 points for its abil ity to resume Its normal precision af-j ter the changes of position and tem perature. The different deviations of time are quoted In hundredths of a sec-j ond". The maximum allowed at the Geneva conservatory for pocket chro nometers Is one-half second of devia tion during one day's run, two seconds after the position has changed, fifteen one-hundredths for each degree of dif ferent temperature, and two and on half seconds of deviation after having resumed the normal position and tem perature. 0 MINER WANT ADDS.

Elliott Just One Question A wealthy magnate was delivering a lecture on thrift to his workpeople. He wound up his address with a few terse remarks, advising them to save while they were young; to avoid, drink and gambling; to keep out of 'debt; and, above all, always to pay twenty shillings to the pound in their trans actions. "Now," he said, in conclusion, "if there is anyone who would like to ask a questidn, I shall be pleased to an swer it, if possible." A grimp lad at the back stood up. "There's just one question I'd like to ask yer, guv'nor," he said. "I'd like to know how a man is going to pay twenty shillings to the pound, when he's nobbut but eighteen bob a week?" London Tit-Bits. Cause for Gratitude "I got a cinder in my eye. Should I cdmplain to the railroad administra tion?" "You reached your destination with out other mishap and in a reasonable length of time, didn't you?" i "Oh,, yes."

Our Ice Cream tested 16 per cent butter fat, the law only requires 10 per cent, so you see you are getting value received. Yours respectfully, Crystal Confectionery ,,,, ----....i Twenty -five Dollars and In dependence i A famous financier and Banker once said that the fear to invest prevents the majority of people from becoming wealthy. I dare say that you have had an opportunity to invest in a proposition that later showed a handsome profit.'.'. Your FEAR kept you from buying. .Conquer your !FEAR and you have found the short est road to financial independence. You have the same right to enjoy the good things in life as your neigh bor, who has accumulated money by his foresight' and courage to act. Your judgment is perhaps better than his; and you had a chance to make a profit, but at the last moment YOUR COURAGE FAILED YOU. Profits are made on what you actually do TODAY, not on what you are going to do TOMORROW. We owe all human advancement and all the conveniences of modern life, and the freedom of this great country to FEARLESS MEN; not to men who lacked the COURAGE TO ACT. Fortune Favors Those Who go After It I have investigated very thoroughly the various OIL FIELDS of Texas, California, Louisiana and finally decided upon La Salle County, Texas, acreage as holding the greatest possibilities for big profits. The leases that I am offering you here, I picked because of their location to the Interantional Petroleum Com pany well, Cecil No. 1 and Beach Et Al No. 2 well... Either one of these wells .when they come in (flowing oil), will .skyrocket the price from $50.00 per acre to thousands of dollars per acre lease.....The stakes are high enough to warrant the risk. The only way that you can make large profits in the oil business is from leases.. .Thousands of people 1 ouy siocks in on companies that are drilling for oil and do very well; but the BIG PROFITS are made by the wise ones who hold the leases to the Oil and Gas Rights on the Land. When you buy this lease from me all the right, title and interest is vested in you. Subject to lt Royal ty you can sell at any time and take your profit. I am only offering part of this acreage' for sale and will hold the balance. 4 PER CENT IN THE BANK At four per cent (4) $25.00 (twenty-five dollars) in the bank will only make you one dollar ($1.00) per year. Invested in La Salle acres, I firmly believe that it will make hundreds and perhaps thousands of dollars for you. OIL LEASE PROFITS are no respector of persons, and those who I have seen make thou sands, hundreds of thousands and millions, count among them, BOOTBLACKS, TEACHERS, FARMERS. MINISTERS, LAWYERS, CLERKS, JANITORS, LABORERS, DOCTOflS, NEGROES, INDIANS, etc! They made their fortunes not through "luck," but because they DARED, and had the COURAGE TO ACT and back up their judgment. Few of these ,peop!e when they acted, had any better, if as good an opportun ity, as is being offered YOU RIGHT NOW. Many of these fortunes were made from a small investment. I am expecting any day to receive a wire from Texas that the International Petroleum Company, Cecil No. 1, near this property, is in the OIL SAND. Then it will be too alte for you to buy LA SALLE ACRE LEASES FOR $50.00 PER ACRE. THE PRICE WILL THEN BE ANYWHERE FROM $1000.00 TO $25,000.00. LA SALLE ACRE LEASES ARE OFFERED AT THE FOLLOWING LOW JPRICES: Vi Acre Lease .'. '. .:. : ' $..25.00 1 Acre Lease A 50.00 2 '2. Acre Lease :... 125.OO 5 Acre Lease .' 250.00 . x - These leases are good for five years and are perpetual as soon as oil is brought in on this tract.
