The Flu situation has improved

Numerous arrests during the
past week mark police attempts to
stamp out the deadly practice of
marihuana smoking. Reports from
Texas indicate an alarming increase in the use of the drug along
the whole Mexican border. The
number of Mexicans taken into
custody here with the narcotic
weed in their possession is evidence
to the polico that San Diego is
menaced. Three men arrested
within"the past two days by Detectives Sears and Elliott were
charged with having marihuana in
their possession. Others picked up
on vagrancy complaints were found
to be well supplied with cigarettes
of marihuana leaves. All have
the wild, insane 'stare common to
addicts of this strange drag.
Maribuna is a harmless looking
weed which grows luxuriantly in
Southern California'and the other
border states. In its' leaves is the
essence of crime, violence and sudden death. Users of the 'drug are
obsessed with weird hallucinations,
their moral sense is destroyed, and
they ��nfeer bodily upon fehe most
re vol ting cri m es. When smoked
in a pipe or cigarette, marihuana
grants the smoker partial JinBen-
sibility to pain and endows him
with superhuman physical courage.
For this reason the marihuana-
crazed criminal is the most dangerous of men. It is said that rebel
and bandit leaders in Mexico frequently encourage their Tmen fo
smoke marihuana before going into
battles. Hundreds of crimes along
the Mexican border have been
traced directly to the influence of
this 'terrible narcotic. The state
law classes marihuana with other
narcotics and makes it a crime to
possess the weed. Ife is commonly
grown, however,*by Mexicans, nofe
only for smoking but for bird seed.
Despite, fehe deadly qualities of the
leaves, the seeds makes one of the
best bird foods known. The police
here are determined to curtail the
use of the drug by the local Mexican population and thus prevent a
threatened crime wave. ��.

Alberta as a Coal Producer
The Chief Coal Producing Province
in Canada
Alberta is now the chief coal-producing province in thc Dominion of
Canada. This is shown by the latest
official figures. Hitherto. Nova Scotia
held first place, but the figures for the
first Miine months of last ycar show
that Alberta had tlic lead on Nova
Scotia by about 125,000 tons. Up to
the above date the Western provinces
had produced two-thirds of all the
coal mined in Canada this year, and
Alberta had increased her production
over last ycar by nearly 40 per cent.
No doubt this remarkable advance has
been due largely to the restrictions
placed on shipments of anthracite coal
to the West. In Manitoba, especially, Alberta coal has found a new and

cording to a New York report,
says the Spokesman-Review of

The New York authority for this
news says  that Grand".'Forks has

expected to  reduce the  output of
.'the'company,  much.    The  cost of
