ernment of Mex
ico according to
an official report
received at San
A number of places In Sonora have
been raided by the Indians The
Yaquis knowledge of the mountain
country of Sonora and their experi
ence in fighting the federal troops
make them among the most dangerous
foes with whom the Diaz government
has to deal
Exterminating 11m Yaqui Indians
has been a favorite pastime with the
established government of Mexico ever
since the time of Cortes and though
thousands of these people have been
shot and thouandb more sent to die
on he plantations md in the swamps
of Tehuantepec and Yucatan there are
still enough ablebodied Yaquis left to
cause considerable trouble
Insurging has been the vocation of
every Yaqui man woman or child
1911 by American Press Association
since long before the present rebellion
broke out in Mexico Rebellion and
warfare seem to be inborn traits or
the Yaquis carefully cultivated from
one generation to the next That it is
right to shed the blood of a Mexican
official or soldier is a Yaqui tradition
and it is one that has been carefully
lived up to
Yaquis Werent All Dead
In September 1S99 Don Rafael Ruiz
a rich landowner of Hermosillo So
nora near the Yaqui country de
Within two months there will not
be alive in Mexico a Yaqui bearing
arms The Yaquis will be driven out
of their mountains to the sea where
they must surrender or die
Nine years later in September 1908
there were enough Yaquis alive and
bearing arms to murder Don Rafael on
the road between Hermosillo and Ures
The trouble between the Yaquis and
the government is primarily that the
Yaquis want to be independent instead
of living in the semi serfdom of the
Mexican peon They live in the south
ern part of the state of Sonora So
nora is a rich mining country and it
was inconvenient to have the Yaquis
claiming the ground as their own mere
13 because they had lived on it for a
few hundred years
Like the Sudanese natives of whom
Kipling wrote the Yaquis may have
1311 by American Press Association
been poor benighted eathen but
thej were and are certainly first class
Gghtin men
One of the most remarkable- proof
of the Yaquis endurance is their run
ning abilitj Travelers who have lived
in Sonora say that it is not an uncom
mon thing- for one of these Indians to
run ten miles an hour for four hours
In the time of the Spanish rule thes s
Indians often acted as couriers and it
Is said that the Spanish governor ot
Mexico used to get fish from the coast
as fresh as President Diaz is able to
procure today by r the somewhat lel
anrelr railroad system of Mexico
Natures Scene Shifting
Although in the geological past vast
changes of level occurred on the bor
ders and even in the center of conti
nents it is a debated question whether
at present similar elevations and sub
sidences can be detected Recently the
frequently repeated statement that the
coasts of Massachusetts and New Jer
sey are perceptibly sinking has been
disputed the apparent subsidence be
ing ascribed to simple changes of
shore line But some curious records
kept in Europe seem to indicate that
actual fluctuations of the level of the
land may occasionally be observed In
the valley of the Main a church tower
hidden behind a mountain screen has
since 18G1 gradually risen into plain
view from the chateau of Strossen
dorf and still farther in the same di
rection another church tower which
began to be visible from Strossendorf
eighty years ago is now clearly seen
above the horizon and is said to rise
higher as time goes on Similar rec
ords exist in Bohemia in Switzerland
In Spain and in the French Jura
Ocean Derelicts
There is an old dread of encounter
ing a derelict that Is just below the
surface of the water There is no
such danger A derelict that will sink
below the surface will sink to the bot
tom Take a tub of water and try to
find any object that will unattached
occupy a position that is other than at
the surface or at the bottom There
is a long task ahead of you There is
the false theory that the water grows
denser as one goes deeper and that a
sinking object will find a place where
it will remain suspended This theory
Is not correct and a boat that will
sink beneath the surface will sink to
the bottom even if that bottom should
be twenty miles down The derelict
that is bumped into has a piece of it
self sticking out of the water as an
alarm if the eyes of the lookout are
only sharp enough to catch it New

Knew the Boundary Line
The friends of a couple in Cleveland
in whose household no doubt exists as
to who Is the head of the family tell
an interesting story relative to the last
trifling passage at arms between hus
band and wife One evening just be
fore dinner the wife who had been
bridge all the afternoon came
in to find her husband and a strange
man afterward ascertained to be a
lawyer engaged In some mysterious
business over the library table upon
which were spread several sheets of
What are you doing with all that
paper HenryV demanded the wife
I am making a wish meekly re
sponded the husband
A wish
Yes niy dear In your presence I
shall not presume to call it a will
Not a Hindrance
It was a revival meeting and the
church Workers were working up and
down the aisles A gray haired woman
past middle age approached a sedate
looking gentleman who occupied a rear
seat on the end of the row Placing
her hand on his shoulder with maternal
touch she said
Dont you think you would like to
be a Christian
My dear madam hebegan dont
you know that I am professor of theol
ogy in the little seminary at the other
end of the town
The woman a homely character and
ignorant of the isms and ologies
of the modern curriculum gave answer
in smooth accents
Well my dear brother dont allow
a little thing like that to stand in your
way Philadelphia Times

of Garricks time was celebrated for
her temper and her spiteful tongue
