If the rebel chief withes to allay the world's uncertainty as to Mexico, let him answer the only question of the our, "After Hucrta, what?" Slowly but surely tho financial blockade begun by the United States and taken up by other great powers Is removing the ground from under tho present dictator. He cannot hope to hold out much longer. But when ho falls, what? Where Is tho Moses to deliver Mexico from the bondage of present conditions? If tho United States and its allies In tho peaceful pursuit could satisfy themselves that thcro was such a within the distraught nation would feel very much better -r the prospect of Huerta's elimi nation. The truth' Is, tho way looks none too Inviting immediately ahead. We are prudently letting tho Mex icans fight out their present dispute, but It would bo moro encouraging if we could only foel easy about their ability to carry the issue tho rest of the way.

Bacon of Geor gia, chuckled at a recent dinner when the talk turned to boomerangs. He said he was reminded of a young woman ac quaintance of his. One afternoon the young woman was walking through a park when she saw a small boy In the act of robbing a bird's nest. In his hat were a couple of eggs and on his face a guilty expression. "You naughty, cruel boy!" Indignantly exclaimed the young woman. "How can you bo so terribly heartless as to take those eggs? What do you think tho mother bird will say when she comes back and finds them gone?" ' "She won't say nothln'," answered the boy, looking at the agitated party before him. "She la dead." "Dead!" wonderlngly cried the younc woman. "How do you know that she Is dead?" "Because ye've got her sewed fast In yer hat!" was the youngster's startling rejoinder. Philadelphia Telegraph.

Doctors are following the crowd across the Dark river In slightly diminished numbers. I.ast year's record shows a total of 1,196 deaths of physicians in the IJnlted States and Canada, equivalent to an annual death rate of UM per 1,000. In the preceding ten years the average death rate was 15.11 per 1,009. Philanthropy and publicity are chummy twins. Harry M.

Kearney Hub: TheOmahaBee remarks that in course of time all of the money In the state's permanent school fund will be Invested In securities representing publlo Improvements of Nebraska cities, counties and school districts, Instead of being sent away from home to help out ether states.

Fremont Tribune: The Lincoln Star Is ooxlng copious quantities of agricultural enthusiasm these' days, manifested to ward tho agricultural college of the state university. It wants 'o kep that school 'for the farmers' boys and girls of the state, free from the intrusion of the rah- rah contingent of tho university." The logic of this cunning appeal to tho farm vote is, of course, to preserve the rah- rah contingent on the downtown campus to preserve the value of real estate owned by Lincoln business men. They are muen mora interested In real estato values than they are in the farm boys and girls, who are no better than the town boys and girls of the state, whom they are glad to sacrifice to' the unfavorable surroundings and allurements of tho present university campus. Barber Defend Ilia Craft. RAVENNA, Neb., Jan. tO.-To the Editor of The Bee: Will you kindly pub lish the following, In answer to an article that appeared In the Omaha World Herald in which a pill peddler assails the noblo profession of the tonsorlat artist? It Is a matter of speculation In my mind as to how mUch this Omaha physician receives for advertising some safety raxor manufacturing; company. For the benefit of the Orofha physician who "excoriates unhygienic barber shops." I want to state that there are some unhygienic shops, but most of the up-to-date barber shops aro aa hygienic as It Is possible to be con sidering present conditions and prices. In my twelve years of barber experience I have never infected anyone with a sk!n disease In any way, shape or form', I have not even turned out a sore face. I would like to ask this Omaha physician If he Is aware of the fact that the aver age barber uses from two to four gallons of hot running water to every man he shaves? Hot water Is cheap, Is a good disinfectant and entirely In keeping with the 10 or 15 cents we are obliged to chargo for a shave. Any barber that Is a barber will sterilize his razor whenever It Is neces sary, as he will also refuse to shave a man with a diseased skin, and I do not believe there Is any barber that will not sterilize his pinchers before using on an Ingrown hair. The Omaha physician points out the fact that the razor strop should also be sterilized every time a man Is shaved. This is a puzzle that never has been solved and I would like tb havo the doctor tell me how a strop can be sterilized even once and then he fit to use ever afterwards. Perhaps the doctor would suggest using a different strop for every man shaved. Thli? would be Impossible. A barber shaves from forty to fifty men per day, A good strop costs about $3 and It takes about two months to break It In before It Is fit for use. It Is then worth about $10. Thus It can be readily seen tlmt If a barber would use a different strop for every man It would be a mighty slow process, besides u barber would be obliged to take Instructions In h,lsh finance. The barbers are obliged to charge 10 or 15 cents for a shave and a great .many customers kick on these prices. If We went through all the red tape our Omaha doctor would dictate we would have to charge at least $10 the shave or get some other graft. It may be that tho man who wrote tho article In tho World-Herald Is a doctor, and It may bo that It Is merely a paid, advertisement For tho benefit of those that patronize barber shops I want to say that they may rest at ease, as there are no barbers hut what use antiseptic faco lotion after a shave, thereby thoroughly ster ilizing the face.

To the Editor of The Bee: I see in your issue of Janu ary 7 that there are 3,000 men out of work tn Omaha and that the city Is going to feed them. I don't know what kind of men they are, but If they are llko the men that tramp through this country In the sumrner they nro not worth feeding. If you city people feed them In the win ter and hey can bum off of us farmers In the summer, thoy will not have to work There Is lots of land laying Idle In this country simply because wo can't get help In tho summer, and we can't afford tn keep help In the winter on account of wages being so high. I think it would be a good scheme for you to ask some o the Idle men to go to work on a farm for $15 or $20 per month and board for this winter. I think they would tell you, as they have told me lots of times, that they would not do a day's work on u farm for Old Christ. I think those are the kind of men that your charitable Instl tutlons are exhausting their facilities to take care of. I think If there was no charities, free lunohos or soup houses there would he more of them stay In tho country where the grub Is raised, and be anxious to hold a job, when they got one, Instead of hiking bock to the, city as soon as they get $10 or $15 ahead Yours truly, A, R.
