From the reports from Mexico,
it is easy to see that Huerta and
Villa are winning great and de-
cisive victories over each other
in the vicinity of Torreon.
Middletown, Ohio; -A baby boy
with three perfect legs was born
to Mrs. Chas. Slipperum, wife of
a millwright, here. The child is
in good health. The extra leg

of your place wonderfully, as
well as make it a more pleasant

Huerta is still trying to win
recognition from the United
States. It is said that one of bis
representatives is in the U. S.
now for this purpose. It will
probably soak through old Huer-

tention of recognizing him or his
bloody-butcher government in

CANT HAMPER PARCEL POST,
Partisan lines were broken in
the United States Senate when
the proposition to limit the pow-
er of the postmaster general in
parcel post matters was defeated
after a three days fight. The
postoffice committee favored the
plan to take from the postmaster
general the power t o reduce
rates and extend zones without
first getting permission from
congress. Friends of the parcel
post as now conducted opposed
this suggestion and deo'ared it
would be practically impossible
to make further weight increases
or other benefits to the people as
a result of experienc e and organ-
ization. Another amendment
provided that no package of more
than fifty pounds should be car-
ried unless the Interstate Com-
merce Commission should decide
the rates representing the cost of

It is-but natural that joy should
come of service to others, for if
it did not, would men serve each
other? Would anyone want to
do as did William Walter Foss—
plead to be allowed to “live by
the side of the road and be a
friend of man”—if love, the pro-
ducer of joy, did not impel the
deed? It is the behest of Divine
Wisdom. Thus we find joy ever
at hand, for love is always pres-
ent. Then why should one post-
pone being happy? Evil does not
want one to declare he will serve
it no longer. It only wants him
to say “Tomorrow”, to postpone
doing the kindly deed; to defer
being happy by procrastination
in the matter of making others so.
The writer of Liberty Locals
said if he lived three months
longer he would have lived nine
years of Sundays, and invited the
Express readers to tell him how
old he is. He must be about 63
years old. Am I correct? If not
tell us through the Express how
you figure time to get the years.
