IMMIGRATION AND IRRIGA
The universe piv« eve.-y man in
hi* own coin; if you mule, it
smiles upon vou i.i return; if you
frown, you will be frowned nt; if
you sing you will be invited into
gay company ; if you think, you
will be entertained bv thinkers,
and if votl love the world and
earnestly seek tor the gi od that
is therein, you will be surrounded
bv loving friends, and ra ure will
pour into your lap the treasure of
the earth. «'ensure, criticise and
hate, and you will be censured,
eriticised and hated bv your fellow,
man. Every seed brings forth
after its kind. Mistrust begets
mistrust, jealousy begets jealousy,
hatred begets hatred, confidence
and kindness begets kindness, love
begets love. Resist and you will
lie resisted. To meet the aggres
sive assault every entity rises up
rigid and impenetrable—while
yonder mountain of granite melts
and floats away on the Ixvsoin of

They are but slightly concerned
whether the prospective settlers
are desirable cititena or whether
they are a ritr-ratfof Huns, Italians,

beginning to reclaim should not be
devoted too largely to homemaking

that men do not suffer from these severe
