We des'.re to reply to that article of last week's Argus, relating to a Socialist meeting, and iff) unhappy ending. The author, for obvious reasons, did not euro to aftnoh his name to the writing, and we do not believe it IH an editorial, as the editor would not be so unreasonable and unkind. The writer of the article \» certainly very much opposed to Socialism, and lie needs in study up some bnf'oie condemning sixteen million followers of the "creed," as it \H barely possible- 'sixteen million to one) that they may bn right ,md he be wrong. The "typical Red" of the evening, with the "frothy mouth," is not refiogni/fd as tin official npeakcr for tho stale or national organl/iitinn at the Socialist party, so U, is hardly fair to lay the blame on paid (.arty. Theic are rash ones in all parties, who do not always use the best methods of education, and the results of tliis particular meeting are to bo regretted. We have no sympathy for the speaker and perhaps ho deserved what he got, fo< § ho and his kind arc dc.ti imental to the cause of Socialism. However, two wrongs did not make the matter right, or add to the credit of the participants, arid we do not, admire- the methods used by the retaliation committee. Our friend from the of lown smashed a jaw bone and the speaker with the red flag was reduced to scrambled eggs. Jfo "scrambled," while the city marshal swept tho corner clear of "undeHirabloH. " You Socialists and sympathizers are cracked-brained ;"your brains have so enlarged with new ideas of justice that your egg shell skulls are cracking near tho wains. You ought to bo ashamed of yourselves for having sympathetic feelings for your fel low- man, and trying to educate the people to the desirability as well as the in- jcvitahility of the cooperative oorn- i monwealth. ft is a pity that there was not a few more softshells; it Becms to have been a mistake in nature. Tho rod flag of Socialism heeiris to have a very irritating effect on some of our patriots. What are tho objections? If tho streaks of red in our national emblem stand for anything good, then the red flag of international socialism may stand for something infinitely better. Tho red flag is symbolical of peace and jiiHtioe for all mankind. Nothing wrong in that. Freedom such as obtains in this country and nil countries is not the kind of freedom desired by Socialists. Socialism meana the entire freedom of man — freedom from all forms of slavery, poverty and the resulting miseries. Socialism would institute the true brotherhood of man. Socialists do not believe in wars, or disgraceful fistic SOOIION, bull fights or "bull pens"; they believe in and teach harmony of interests, It is generally conceded that wars when reduced to thi'ir last analysis arc little short of wholesale murder. However, if it will do tho dead, wounded or bereaved families any good, we will simply call it slaughter, <>r killing, or ignorant oiissedncHH. What a sin that 1UOO men should pass up for slaughter, and to .slaughter, and emerge with a pitiful remnant, of Hlfi survivors. Surely this la n shamo to a so-called ci vili/at ion, and a disgrace everlasting. When Socialism comes into being, and tho profit system IH done away with, them will be m> wars or starvation in tho lands of plenty, an the incentive and opportunity !« prudiico tlu'Ho conditions will have licon abolished. It there had been no prullt in the slave busi- ntitiH, there would have been no slavoH, and therefore no civil war. If it was not lor pmllt, there would bo no wars with Japan or any other duu nt ry. If it was nut fur that imp of Satan, "profit," there would bo no incentive- to kill, plunder and grind up tint buiit'N and bbuid of our ohibl ren into dollars and cents, or to onn- tinuii iho woman slavo t ratlin or the drink curso. Let t<v(<ry»ne have all ho ur she pi'tiduoes or its equivalent, and tliu vexed questions of poverty aiul uvi'i'pi'oduot iuu, cvimrti and mi.s eries, will be eliminated or reduced to ihu minimum.

The century plant, so named hetfttiS'J of the popular Idea that It bloom* but once in a hundred years, In one sense makes good Its name, for It blown*, only once, then dies. In the gonlaJ cllmntft of southern California H reaches maturity and hloorns In fifteen or twenty years, while In colder climates the period may range from forty to fifty years. There are many species of the agave family native to northern Mexico, when; It. Is called the maguey The plant furnishes "pulque," the national drink of Mexico. At the time of blooming the plant throws up a single stock of rapid growth to the height of twelve to twenty feet, from whfeh the tassel-like flowers sprout forth. This great flower stalk draws all the sap and vigor from the body of the plant, soon withers and dies.
