EMIGRANTS COMING BACK
Already the tides of emigration
from, America to Europe have chang
ed to those of immigration. People
who were alarmed few months ago
lest all the foreign-born labor of the
United States should depart to other
.choree, taking enormous sums of
money, may now quiet their alarms.
Throngs of foreigners are still leav
ing this country, tout many of the
first to leave are already returning.
Before the war foreigners who had
earned and saved a' few thousand
dollars could go back to their native
land and live in comfort, if not real
luxury, 'or the rest of their lives.
During the war they could not go
back unless tliejr went to fight. There
axe other reasons for their departure.
Many of, them had relatives in the
old country whom they had not seen
for years, but of whom they had not
heard any news during the war.
They wanted, to go back and gather
up and care for the scattered rem
nants of their families.
But they have found, as many
thoughtful persons prophesied they
would, that conditions in the old
country are far different today. They
. returned to lands exhausted toy the
war, where high prices would soon
ea up all their savings, where the
necessaries of life were scarce and
where there was a general confusion
of distress, unrest and unemploy
ment. It Is not to be wondered at
' that they now wish to come 'back to
With them will come many of the
relatives and friends they went
"home.' to seek. Word of the great
er comfort and opportunities to be
enjoyed in America will travel fast.
America is not so strange a place to
Euorpeans since they have known
the doughboys. Immigration re
mains a greater problem than emi
gration so far as America 1s con
In speaking of the value of trolley
lines to cities, an eastern expert says
the trolley lines are not yet ready
for the fate of the stage coach and
horse car. "The electric railway,"
lie says, "is the bread of transports
tion life, whereas the automobile is
the cake and man cannot live by
There is nothing like patriotism.
Whichever won the world's series
the Reds or the Whites, somebody
was sure to be blue. Thres cheers
for the Red, White and Bine.
There are many men totally op
posed to the president's policies, but
even the bitterest of these would not
wish him ill.
"I am the uncompromising foe of
te dance," says Billy Sunday. "Seventy-five
per cent of the girls who
t-'o down to ruin slide there over the
smooth, glistening, wax floor of the
dance halls. Of course, there is
both moral and Immoral dancing,
but I am opposed to both kraals."

Thos. Peacock brought down a

one of our progressive ranchers who
sees no great future for this country
until the land hogs either make their
great idle tracts tenantable, or cut
them up and sell to people who will
do something with the land. He
tells of many tracts that used to pro
duce good crops that have been gob

to brush. Del Norte Triplicate.

The kitchen where a lnrge proportion of the work
is done by simple, efficient labor saving machinery
is an asset to any home. If servants are employed, they arc
tasit-r to keep owing to the elimination of drudgery. Where it
is faithfully employed, electricity greatly reduces the actual
- need for servants in the small family.
