W SURELY HARD MAN TO PLEASE ACH year finds tens of thou- sands of American citizens mak- ing patriotic pilgrimages to' the home and tomb of Oeorge Wash- ington at Mount Vernon on the Potomac river. Almost without exception these tourists "stop over" going or coming at the quaint old town of Alexandria, Va., located about half way be- tween the city of Washington and Mount Vernon. Many of the visitors declare Alexandria almost if not quite as interest- ing as the far-fatned country «eat of the Father of His Country.

The Mesquiter hesitates about publishing a list of the bachelors of Mes- auite but it will gladly furnish the list on request of any unattached female who means business. Mental insanity is a subterfuge under which many criminals escape the punishment they de- serve. When "moral insanity" becomes general- ly acceptable as a defense,then all murderers and crooks will go free. If Taft is nominated and elected, Col. Cecil tor* on will not be such a factor in naming the Federal officers in Texas as he has been in the past. In fact is reasonable to assure that already his in- fluence at Washington has b...
