It was Washington Irving who
wrote a highly diverting sketch
on the mutability of things. If
might be well, in view of recent
events, to enlarge the topic to
the mutability of empires.
Readers of newspapers who
hastily scan the accounts of oc
currences as they are recorded
day by day have witnessed of late
developments that will stand out
conspicuously when the next gen
eration studies the history of the
period. The overthrow of the Ot
toman arms in Europe and Af
rica, resulting in the curtailment
of the power which some centur
ies ago the combined force of Eu
rope in -vain launched itself
against, is but one of the devel
opments. The humbling of Is
lam will go down as the most im
portant world event of the year
The renaissance of China,
which has been going on quiet
ly during 'the present twelve
month, is another epoch-making
event. Following the overthrow
of the century-old Manchu pow
er the ancient empire has come

Mexico in the long-lienee will
look back upon 1912 as a year of
blood and horror, the aftermath
of the overthrow of Diaz, whose
power in a way seemed as unas
sailable as that of either the
Manchus or the Turks, having
been a reign of lawlessness that
has made the country groan.

The negotiations thus far have
made little progress toward peace
but the temper of I he representa

unreasonable obstinacy, but ratti
er that of willingness to con

lo permanent peace if such is at
tainable without incongruous
concessions. The attitude of the
Balkans, being that of conquer

It i a fact that Valdez beer is a food and nut a tonic.
Ask any doctor you know. Valdez beer aids digestion. Use
it a few times with your meals and you’ll find we’re right.
If you drink beer you should use Valdez beer in preference to
others. First, because of its unquestionable high quality.
Second, because it is a home product; brewed in your home
town and all who arc interested in the growth and prosper
ity of Valdez should patroniz home products.
