Tho author, for obvious rensoiiP, did not euro to Bllneh his name to the writing, and we do not believe It in nti editorial, as tho editor would not bo no unreasonable and unkind. The writer of the article IH certainly very much opposed to Socialism, and he needs to study up some before condemning sixteen million followers of tho "creed," as it \e barely possible 'sixteen million to one) that, they may bo ri^ht and he be wrong. The "typical Hed" of the evening, with the "frothy mould," is not, reeognixed as an official speaker for the slfilo or national organlxal ion of the Socialist part y, su <t is hardly fair to lay (In- blame on paid [arty. Theie are rash ones in all parties, who do not alwnvs one the best methods of education, and the results of this particular meeting are to be regretted. We have no sympathy for the sponkor and perhaps he deserved what he got, for ho and his kind are deti imonlal to the cause of Socialism. However, two wrongs did not make the matter right, or add to the credit of tho participants, and we do not, admire the methods used by the retaliation committee. Our friend from the iHth of Iowa smashed a jaw bone arid the speaker with the rod Hag wan reduced to scrambled OKKH. Ho "scrambled," while the city marshal swept tho ! corner clear of "undesirables." You Socialists and sympathizers aro cracked-brained ;"your brains havono enlarged with now ideas of justice that your egg shell skulls are cracking near the scams. You ought to ho ashamed of yourselves for having sympathetic feelings for your fellowman, and trying lo educate the people to the desirability as well as the inevitability of the cooperative commonwealth, ft, is a pity that there was not, a few more softshells; it seems to have, boon a mlstfiko in nature. Tho rod flag of Socialism scorns to have a very irritating effect on some of our patriots. What aro tho objections? If tho streaks of red in our national emblem stand for anything good, then the red Hag of international socialism may stand for something infinitely bettor. Tho red flag is symbolical of peace and justice for all mankind. Nothing-wrong ID that. Freedom such IIH obtains in this country and all countries is not tlio kind of freedom desired by Socialists. Socialism means the entire freedom of man — freedom from nil forms of slavery, poverty and the resulting miseries. Socialism would institute the true brotherhood of man. Socialists do not believe in warn, or disgraceful fistic scones, bull fights or "bull pens"; they believe in and teach harmony of interests, It is generally conceded that, wars when reduced to their last analysis aro liltlo short of wholesale murder. However, if it will do tho dead, wounded or bereaved families any good, wo will simply call it slaughter, or killing, or ignorant cusscdnt'Hs. What n sin that 1'200 men should pass up for slaughter, and In slaughter, and omtu'ge with a pitiful remnant, of filTi survivors. Surely this i« u Hlwwe to a so-called civili/.atinn, and a disgrace everlasting. When Socialism uumos into being, and tin; profit system IH dniio away with, thorn will be no wars or starvation in tho lands of plenty, an the inei ntivo and uppor tunity to produce UIOKC conditions will have been abolished. It there had been no profit in the (slave business, there would have been no slaves, and therefore no civil war. If it was not lor profit, there would bo no wars with Japan or any oilier in mil try. If it was not for that imp of Satan, "profit, " there would bo no incentive to kill, plunder and grind up the bones and blood of our chilli I'en into dollars and cents, or lo con tinuo the woman slave tratlin or the drink curso. Let everyone have all ho or she produces or its equivalent, ami tho vexed questions of poverty and overproduction, crimes and mi.-i cries, will ho eliminated or reduced to tho minimum. Help us work tor the early coming of that better day. Yours respectfully. S. Knlieits Headley. CHARTER OAK. Mrs. H.C. Maoe mid Mis. Lyons, Sr., are both very ill this week.

The century plant, so named of the popular Idea that It bloom* but once In a hundred years, In one twnse makes good .Its name, for It bloom* only once, then dies. In the genJaJ climate of southern California It reach- en maturity and blooms 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, whore It Is called the maguey The plant, furnishes "pulaue," the national drink of Mexico. At the time of blooming the plant throws up a single atoclc of rapid growth to the height of twelve to twenty feet, from whfeh the tassel-like flowers sprout forth. This great (lower stalk draws all the Bap and vigor from the body of the plant, •which soon withers and dies.
