DAY SHOW IS DUE
HtRE ON MONDAY
The vivid Tcenes which were part
nnd jwtrrcl of the strenuous life of
the frontier n the past jreneralion
will lie graphically nnd tnttliftilly.cn
netcd when the Irwin Ilm. Cheyenne
1'rontier Day Wild Wwl Show comes
The cowboys nnd cowgirl from
the Yd ranch of the owner, Chnrle
It. nml Frank Invin, as writ ns other
)iart of the ohh country, who have
Ix't-n part of the life which they de
pict, have made this show fauiou
because of it gentunene's.
The thrilling contefts between rid
ers and outlaw horse?, wild steers
and buffalo, the skill of crack
pliot., the adroitness of the knight
of the lasso and the da.h and vim of
the trick riders, who seem part of
the saddle, are some of the varied
and picturesque feature of the Ir
win Bros.' exhibition, which has made
it a fascination to the older folk
niul an hixtorical revelation to the
youngsters. The strenuous day. of
the fast fading frontier arc enacted
Jy the people who were reared in the
environs of the corral and ranch.
The atmosphere of the western life
i preserved in the performance.
The Irwin Bros.' Cheyenne Fron
tier day has been an institution in
the weftcrn country for more than
fourteen years. It was the parent
organization of the stampede, round
tip nnil rodeo of the reft of the coun
try. Most of the cowboy and cow
girls with the Irwin Bros, are the
winners of 'champion-hip honors in
lheir vrioti elapses.
The band of Sioux warriors from
the Pine Itidge agency, headed by
Chief Bed Cloud, depict the pictur
fsiue life of the vanishing rcdman
with the rugged warfare between the
settlers of the western country and
the aborigines in all its reckless dan
ger. Xot a phase of the old wet is
lacking from the Irwin Bros, exhibi
tion to make it a veritable passing
panorama of the scenes of those
strenuous days when.' nature thrived
with the bark off.
Till: AMIS' OK TIIK KINGS.
(My Guy F. Iee In tho Chicago Tri
bune.) "We're partners or Him In the Heaven
We portion the woe and the weal,
To us Is Authority given,
Our Might is exempt from appeal;
Our reign o'er the land the water
Muht be, be it pcaco or the sword"
So utter tho kings as they slaughter
And waste In the name of the Lord.
For thousands of years superstition,
Oppression and Ignorance, blent,
Have fostered a mocking tradition
That millions Hell-headlong has

Of crime In tho name of tho Lord
'Tin tlmo that earth's real rulers
No more to a fetish called throne,
No more ."to the Pharisee knuckle.
No more gtvo themselves and their
'Tin tlmo that they strike down the
Self sanctified, arrogant horde
Who pillage and murder and rav

irrigation. Thqse orchards that are irrigated generally
have good yields, lany.of those that are liot watered will
have undersized fruit.
It. has heen the curse of the valley that, water was not
needed the average year. If it. had heen a necessity, long
since the entire valley would have heen under water. Con
seouently tho annual output is ahout a tenth of what it.
should l)e, and m dry years only a miction.
The future of the valley lies in intensive cultivation.
For this, water is essential. Commercial orchards must
have water to mrftitnin the average production. It is tho
host crop insurance and fruit raising will never ho the
revenue-producing industry it is capable of hcconiing until
the outre fruit belt can he irrigated.
The orohardist has learned by experience not to trust
entirely to one crop. Side issues, such as truck gardening,
harries and small fruits, dairying and hog raising must he
depended upon as well as tho orchard to insure an income.
Yet these also are dependent largely upon water for suc
cess. Several efforts have heen made in tho past to con
struct an irrigation system. Several times capital has
offered to develop water, provided the required acreage of
laud to he watered was signed up. Each effort met failure
through the inability of property owners to realize that
tho water on the .land made the land twice as valuable
irom a producers sranupoint ns tnc land without water

Figures Which Prove
Everything and Nothing
(From the Sacramento nee)
No saying is truer than that you
can prove almost anything by fig
ures. Our prohibition friends are fond of
quoting statistics to prove that In
sanity decreases in prohlbtlon states
and Increase in wet commonwealths,
And liquor advocates will bring
forth statements from reports prov
ing exactly tho opposite.
In a recent Everybody's was an
article on "What We Know About
Rum." Therein was this:
In a recent bulletin Issued by tho
census department a comparative
table ot Insanity Is given by states.
There were eight prohibition states
at the close of the census peried:
Maine, Georgia, North Carolina, Ten
nessee, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kan
sas, and North Dakota. Comparing
the gain or loss in admissions to in
sane hospitals in these states with
their Immediate neighbors, wo find
the following significant recerds:
Maine Increased 21 for every' 100,-
000 Inhabitants, while New Hamp
shire decreased 7; North Dakota de
creased 'J, while South Dakota In
creased 3; Georgia Increased 1, while
Florida decreased 8; North Carolina
Increased 11, while South Carolina
Increased only 4; Tennessee increased
14, while. Kentucky increased 12;
Mississippi Increased 9, while Ala

In the event the Ilelglau troops take

there N no ipietion but that a way
Win lie loumi ny winei this commerce
can be handled. Whilo the nation of
the old world are warring with one
another they will all, without doubt,
co-operntc with the t'nited State in
solving the transportation problem.
The t'nited States government .-hould
invet $100,000,000 or more to iunll

handle the commerce of the world.
The people of the United States nre

Kansas decreased 10, while Nebraska
Thus It appears that each prohi
bition state has a worse record than
Its Immediate neighbor In tho num
ber of cases ot Insanity, with tho sin
gle exception of North Dakota,
As proving anything concerning the
point at issue tho connection be
tween the liquor traffic and Insanity
those figures are every bit as un
reliable as those the. prohibitionists
are fond of quoting to show the other
side' of the shield.
Take the statement above, for In
stance. There Is nothing to show
the Increase here or the decrease
there In Insanity was not due to a
number of causes, "with which the use
ot liquor or Its disuse had no connec
tion, Intimate or remote.
Protagonists on either side aro
foolish who make tiso of statistic!
which provo nothing.
Detter argue the question solely
upon Its merits, throwing Into tho
waste basket that kind and character
of statistics, which can be used to
buoy either side, and not Infrequent

There was a further exodus of Ameri

Tho bitterness- engendered ty the

say the Russian consul at Frankfort,
N. Demaler, was forcibly taken from

remove his hat and bow to the atatuo
he was kicked and cuffed.
