fence too but too late to eaten his
errors or shortcomings occasionally.
If criticisms be unjust they are eas-
ily answered and if based upon ac-
tual deficiencies inN the conduct of
public affairs by the officials at whom
they are directed they should stimu-
late the officials to attempt to rem-
edy the evils pointed out. Very often
it is true critics are captious and in-
clined to be too severe in raking pub-
lic officials over the coals. Too often
the critics may be found to belong to
the political party in opposition to
the officials whom they criticise. But.
taken as a general thing it must be
admitted that the administration of
public affairs almost everywhere
shows defects which may be criticised
with benefit to the public weal. Con-
gresses legislatures county commis-
sioners' courts and city councils ev-
erywhere pass laws that are open to
objections commit acts that deserve
criticism. ' If no one ever pointed out
these defects they might never be
remedied. The servants of the people
instead of being thin skinned and
growing indignant if a taxpayer dare
to say that they should or should not
do so and so should welcome honest
criticism and should endeavor to see
whether there arc any grounds for it
before growing augry and saying ugly
things about their critics. The people
pay the bills for public service and
re entitled to say what they think
about what they receive for their
money. At the same time it would
be oniy just for the critics to note the
good work done by public officials
as well. as to point out their faults.
Criticism does not necessarily mean j
tormentor. After going through the K i
same ordeals as his predecessors ex- :

The Herald regrets that it "cannot
give space to the communication
signed A Six Montus lUesident or
to those of "J. G." and "Pro Bono
Publico" as none of them is accom-
panied by the name of the writer.
Anonymous communications are
never accepted by reputable newspa-
pers. All articles intended for pub-
lication must be signed by the author
though the name need not be pub-
lished if the author wishes it with-
held. The Herald would much pre-
fer however that any article contri-
buted to its columns which contains
criticisms or suggestions relative to
' public matters should be published
over the signature of the author.
Everyonc who has an idea to advance
which he or she believes to be for
the public good should be willing to
shoulder the responsibility for it.
An honest outspoken critic will not
fear to stand up openly for his opin- j
ions and that kind of criticism will '
do more good than that which mas- j

The Lion and liull Fight (?)
And now for the thrilling (?) ex-
perience of an African (?J lion vs.
an El Chorro bull. -
It was C.10 American time when
preparations began for this event.
The iron cage which was round was
about IS feet in diameter and had
been placed in the center of the ring
on Saturday. The bull was the first
to enter the cage. A long rope was
placed around his horns and ho was
pulled up to the entrance of the cage.
The door was small and at first it
was difficult to get him to enter as
his horns would catch in the bars.
They finally succeeded in getting his
head in and with a dozen Mexicans
tugging on the rope and a couple of
husky attendants pushing on the rear
end. they finally succeeded in forcing
him in and held him tightly in his
"corner." Xext the lions were rolled
into the ring in a small cage. There
were two a lion and a lioness. The
sunny-siders became frantic when the
two lions were placed in the cage.
They thought there would be high do
The bull was mad clear through.
He first said howdy to the lioness
caught her on his hooks and sent her
spinning into the air. She evidently
had been up agaiiist this game before
and used every precaution to avoid
him. The bull then very cordially
said good evening to the king of
beasts and gave him a toss which
turned him over and over before he
came down. The non did not relish
this and tried to get away. The lions
evidently believing that in union
there is strength huddled together
snarling and growling. The lion was
bleeding at the mouth and his left
foreleg was badly lacerated. But the
bull didn't care a jot for their growls
and proceeded once more to tear
things up. He sailed into the lion
and pegged him into the air. The
victim came down with a thud and re-
mained perfectly motionless. Every-
one thought he was killed but he
finally arose and returned to the side
of the cage. AH this time the bull
fighters were poking and prodding i
the bull and the lions to make them
fight. But what's the use of saying I
more.' It can be summed up in a few
words: The lions positively did not
want to scrap and in fact did not
even have the courage to protect j

After the arena was cleared the at

Jt was only after much coaxing that
