What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

'It ' J1 A Continuation of the Moccasin Dispatch Old Series Vol. IX, No. 13 MOCCASIN, JUDITH BASIN COUNTY, Americans Are Always Saying \All Right!\ It Is Their Pet Phrase By GUSTAV FREN88EN, in \Letters from America.\ Tbe Americans are always saying cheerfully, carelessly and lightly: \All right!\ It is their pet phrase. It is a phrase appropriate to wander- ers, pioneers, sportsmen, hunters. Americans are bunters, and always they have been lucky at hunting. They have hunted Indians and buffaloes, negroes and Spaniards and Gerniane, gold and copper and oil went, and always luck has smiled upon them. And evenings they sit by the fire and talk of their spoils. Cam? Reflections? Right or wrong? 1FIunters -do not ask questions about such things. Americans are now going through an era like that welch Rome went through when it reached the Adriatic coast, Spain when it dispatched Columbus, England when it laid hands on South Africa and India. They are a people in the bloom of its springtime, favored and blessed by God because of its freshness, brilliancy and efficiency. But remember, all that is right and valuable contains something tragic and sad. Individuals and peoples alike, everything that is worth anything bears the noble mark of guilt, remorse and need on its brow. All the older nations carry this mark and do not seek to deny it: Spain, Holland, Sweden, England, France, Germany. Creation is tragic. The American people do not beer this old, holy sign of creation; in America there is no scar, complaint, remorse, want, error. Everything there is still mathematically clear; everything comes out just as it should. Everything there is still \all right!\ ilr?7?;?7\ Minute Men of the Constitution United in Common Bond of Patriotism By BRIG. GEN. JOHN V. CLINNIN, Retired. \Heil and Maria\ Dawes has struck the keynote in proposing a real American organization in which all classes, colors, and creeds may join In support of the Constitution.' It is a mistake for us to think that radicalism in the United States I. merely the evidence of a form of unrest which neither grows nor im- presses. As a matter of fact, socialism and radicalism are carefully de- veloped and promoted by a great organization. Soviet Russia, the land of darkness and illiteracy, has agents working with little restraint in an educational campaign, which is even carried into our schools and colleges. The time has come when we must meet organization by counter organisation. W9 have some in America who assume to meet the problem by intolerance. -.!Flseir objective is lost in the hatred and distrust engen- dered. Let us be 'Minute Men et the Constitution united by the co.nmon band of patriotism Let us again dedieete our lives, regardless of line of descent, creed, color or party, to upholding the government of the United States of Amenca. It should be emphasised that in our free land, with its laws made by the people and for the people, there is no place for so-called class con- sciousness, and that we will tolerate no government by classes. Still One Field Open to Women Where They Have Outrageous Advantages Sy LAURA ERXGRENILIDGE MeCLINTOCIL. in Motor. Thank heaven, there is still one field left open to women where they hive soma outrageous advantages over mere man—and that field is motoring. Why take the men along? Why, even if their resistance can be overcome, and a lukewarm enthusiasm results? There are few difficulties to be met with in touring that cannot be just as well, if not more easily, dealt with by women traveling alone than if in company with a man. And, oh, the advantages t And the larks that result from such experiences! For there are advantages from the titne the car is left to be overhauled at the corner garage in preparation for the trip until the last spare tire is cut into ribbons on the homeward flight. I know.

No Civilization Lasts Long Unless the People Are Trained to Their Tasks ny PROF. 11. V. O'SHEA, University of Wisconsin. The a nditions in city life have changed'markedly during the Ink kiair decades. The individual home hoe been constantly losing its dis- tinctive chanitter. Fifty years ago, even in the city, young and old spent riesseiderabie part of their time in their own homes. Today most of their time is spent outside of their homes; and even when they are in their own homes, their friends are there with them. The agencies in the city designed to help people to while away their time have been constantly increasing out of all proportion to an increase in the size of the cities. This simply means that people are speeding much more of their time together in groups than they did formerly. The tendency of this new life is to make young people more respon- sive, more alert, more self-reliant in the presence of others, perhaps even \smarter\ than was true in the old order. But at the same time, young people do not have training outside of the school in long -continued appli- cation to any task. No civilisation can long endure unless the people are traine' to apply themselves to their teaks, whatever they may be, for lose time; that is to say, until the tasks are solved.

CULTURE OWED TO MONGOLS That That Rao, Brought Civilisation to America Thousands of Years Ago, Is Atmertlen. It was Mongols who brought civ- ilization to America. Men from the region of Burma and Indo-China were in Mexico as early as 10,000 years age, and probably much be- fore that. The capacity for culture of these eastern races is great, and they hold tenaciously to every ad- vance. The buildings, art, beliefs, and modes of thought of prehistoric America appear definitely Chinese. Not only is this so, but much of the culture of the Mayas and Tol- tec. of Yucatan, peoples in whom there was much Mongol blood, is superior to anything ever evolved in China and rivals Gothic culture in northern Europe. These nations were overthrown about 800 A. D. by the Aztecs, an Apache -like breed of Indians, perhaps the most cruel men who ever made a nation. The Spanish finished the destruction. What could be the cause of Amer - lean prehistoric civilization Biol.- gista think they know When a higher and a lower race intermarry it is always the higher which angora extinction, for the lower domilltes it in heredity three to one. day - thing bred with Indian 'neck pro- duces an Indian. As soon as the good Mongol blood became en- feebled the Mongol civilization crumbled.—Chicago Tribune. SEEKING TREASURE IN AFRICA Many Believe That \Mountain of Piet. Inum\ Is a asality--Aleo Cave \Gleaming With Geld.' The 'mountain of platinum* claimed to have been discovered in 1895 by a German doctor, who emerged from the Kalahari (South Africa) desert and died almost im- mediately, is still believed in by people of authority, and the small sample brought in by the doctor was genuine enough. Two expeditions have come to disaster in an attempt to pick up the doctor's tracks, and there is reason to believe that more than one secretly conducted venture has shared a similar fate. Then there is a strongly held faith in the genuineness of the story told by an ancient native of undo - terminate race, of a cave \gleaming with gold,\ somewhere in the vicin- ity of Kruptedorp. The native was probably century old when he tried to fnterview Paul Kruger in order to do his duty as the last of his tribe by handing over to him, as the Great Chief, the secret of the tribe that hadbeen \eaten up,\ leav- ing only the old native as its repre- sentative. He steadfastly refused to have anything to say to the sub- ordinates Kruger appointed to deal with the matter, and died insisting that a king's secret could be given only to a king.
