WORDS POOR DISGUISE FOR CHARACTER
Dr Frank Crane whose income from his editorial activities is
said to far exceed that of Arthur Brisbane commonly regarded as the
highest paid editorial writer in the United States recently uttered a great
truth a truth that has an important bearing upon the fiscal situation
He said in discussing an international matter
The worst enemies of every country are those of their own num
ber who under pretext Qf loud patriotism preach the dark and cowardly
propaganda of hate and suspicion towards other peoples
Intelligence and honesty the writer continues are
The two unpardonable sons in the eyes of the two va
rieties of blatherskites who afflict the human race
These two varieties are the extreme radicals and the extreme
reactionaries
They cannot endure intelligence because they have seized an
idea as a dog grabs a bone and runs away with it in a blind frenzy
We have an illuminating illustration locally in that aggregation
of tax dodgers who are endeavoring to cover themselves under the cloak
of Home Folks An attempt is being made if we believe them to con
fiscate their property simply because they are asked to pay their over
due bills their unpaid taxes
Their argument is a hymn of hate intended to inflame the
minds of the people as the German war lords used the original to blind
the reasoning powers of the people This method originating in the dis
eased mind of the junkers was intended to cover up their own crimes
by a recital of the alleged atrocities committed by other nations
Intelligence is something to be abhorred by them Calm reason
ing and judgment cannot but expose their plans aims and unworthy mo
tives It is for this reason they are compelled to resort to the use of
half truths lies and paid tools No means is too low to be used in the
effort to blind the intelligence of the people
A note of desperation is entering into their screeds They are find
ing that the people of America do not so easily absorb the Hun propo
ganda and are not so easily misled The campaign against C M Zan
der resulted in the most courteous treatment being accorded him in both
Miami and Globe
The people realize it is the tax dodgers that are their worst ene
mies and that tax PAYERS foot the bill for the amount their slacker
neighbors evade
IS MARS INHABITED
Considerable ridicule has been voiced by those of high and low
degree over the announced plans of two eminent scientists to settle the
question of whether or not there is life on the planet Mars
When we remember that Columbus Bell Morse Marconi and prac
tically every other great disciple of research has been ridiculed it is not
surprising that human nature should run true to form
It is proposed in this case to sink a gigantic telescope into a de
serted mine shaft and instead of using glass for the magnifying lenses
to substitute liquid mercury which is claimed to have certain advantages
that will enable the observer to see Mars fiom an apparent distance of
but one and two miles If they get old Mars down that close it will
doubtless be possible for us to determine whether they have any such
foolish animal as the genus Man of the Earth on the planet we see in
the heavens at night It will be an interesting thing to know at that
Possibly if we ever happen to get into communication with the supposed
inhabitants of Mars they can tell us what electricty is or answer some of
the other questions that have vexed us
In any case it will give us a truer perception of our own insignifi
cance as the inhabitants of a rather small planet within a rather small
eolar system which is only one of millions of such solar systems in the
universe of space
We will perhaps Je willing then to admit wo aro not
the only things that count It may be that wo will find other souls
just as worthy of saving and other peoples just as much entitled to
eternal life
Perhaps then we can answer the question of the little boy who
asked his mother whether there was any dog heaven and compare the
faith and loyalty and friendship of the dumb animals with our own
There are many dogs which are kinder and truer and more faithful
than many a man No dumb animal has ever begun to descend to the
depths of moral depravity to which man has lowered himself That is a
plain fact that is self evident to anyone with the powers of observation
Indeed why shouldnt there be a dog heaven
If the experiment of the eminent scientist will Have anv effect in
divorcing man from some of his egotismwe say go to it and good luck
S We would like to take a glance at the distant slranger if
the tickets are not selling too high
CONTRIBUTIONS OF MINES
TO RAILROAD REVENUE
The mining industry is very much depressed and a correspondent
points out the relation of this to the railroads Figures from the Bureau
of Mines show the nations mineral output in 1920 was valued at sliehtlv
above 4 billion dollars or in the neighborhood of half the total value of
our agricultural crops for the same year In 1920 also raw mined prod
ucts contributed 582 per cent of the tonnage carried by the railroads in
carload lots Even excluding shipments of bituminous coal which of
course bulk considerably the mining industry last year contributed
Twice as much railroad tonnage as agriculture
Two and one half times as much railroad tonnage as non mining
miscellaneous commodities
Three times as much railroad tonnage as forestry
Twelve times as much railroad tonnage as animal industry
In other words mining furnishes more than one half the freight
revenue of the railroads It is conservatively estimated today that the
metal mining industry as a whole is operating at not more than 50 per
cent of capacity The inter dependence of industry is illustrated by the
fact that the railroads not only depend upon the mines for the bulk of
their revenue but the mines depend largely on the buying of the railroads
for their own prosperity Contributed

PASTUERIZED MILK
and CREAM
Why is it that the people of Europe consider Pasteurized milk
the best for children and invalids rather than raw milk
It is because that from study and research it is shown that
death carrying germs in the raw milk are eliminated practically
99 by Pasteurizing
Dr Joseph Blake famous American doctor says that the people
of Europe who give raw milk to children are considered weak
minded in that country
It stands to reason that the creameries all over the U S would
never go to the expense of installing machinery costing thou
sands of dollars if they had not known of the effects produced
on these death germs by Pasteurizing We handle Pasteurized
milk and guarantee it to be on a par with any milk produced
in the country

COMES TO AID IN
WAR ON DISEASED
CATTLE OF STATE
Dr F J Lingo of the bureau of
animal industry with headquarters at
Albuquerque is in Phoenix operating
with the state live stock saintary
board in the work of eradication of
tuberculosis in cattle
While there are not sufficient Tunds
at the command of the state to start
the work at the present time the
matter is being thoroughly gone into
so the state will be in position to be
gin early next year
The government is offering to
match state funds for the eradication
work on the credited herd plan
us provides for a certificate after
two tubercular tests or for the slaugh
tering of the cattle if diseased
The last session of the legislature
appropriated 45000 for the move
ment which will be matched by the
government Because the sum is not
large enough to carry on it has been
decided not to start the work here un
til it can be continued
Dr Lingo declared yesterday that
20 per cent of the permanent dairy
and breeding herds are tubercular
The governments chief motives in
undertaking the work are for the eco
nomical and health values according
to Dr Lingo
Through federal inspection between
40000 and 50000 pounds of meat
were destroyed last year he said
