Clinging to Old Methods The peons of Mexico aro a queer aol. heir ignorance and stupidity arc jualed, perhaps, by* no other race of eople in the world. They are too stu? pid even to be instructed. I was down lin the mining regions of Mexico for Isome time and had a good chance to [observe their habits. They still per? sist in corning the ore from the mines in bags on their backs. I knew a case where a contractor secured a number of wheelbarrows, thinking to help their labors. They accepted barrows all right, but would not use them as tiny were intended to be used. Instead of wheel? ing them they would lill them up and ...ny the barrows with their contents on their backs, as they had done with their bags. Another amusing case of their stupidity was shown when an American living down there, pur? chased a stove for his servants, wbo were peons, to cook on. They would not touch the stove, but persisted in adhering to their old custom of sitting in front of a charcoal fire, fan in hand a...
