One of Socorro County's Most Highly

After a Brief Illness.
Word was brought to Socorro
early Tuesday morning that
Kamon Montoya was dead at his
home in San Antonio. The an
nouncement did not come alto
gether as a surprise. for it was
known that Mr. Montoya had
been dangerously ill for two or
three days; nevertheless, when it
was known that death had claim
ed its own, expressions of sorrow
were heard on every side. The
sincerity of those expressions
was unmistakable. It was such
as constitutes the highest tribute
to the dead. As a man and as a
citizen Mr. Montoya was one
whom any community can ill
afford to lose. He was respected
and esteemed and he cheerfully
assumed his share of the public
The funeral Wednesday in
honor of the departed was doubt
less one of the most largely at
tended that has ever occurred in
the county. Hundreds of rela
tives, friends, and business ac
quaintances gathered from far
and near to pay the tribute of
their presence and sorrow. Forty
or more citizens of Socorro were
in attendance. San Miguel band
furnished music for the sad oc
casion. The pall bearers wore

Socorro's lovers of the national
game had a rare treat Sunday.
The nine that is to represent the
city in the games against the
Santa Fe champions had been
selected from the two local teams.
The game was a close one be
tween these "elects" and the
"scrubs," so close in fact that
for a time it seemed that the two
nines would best exchange titles.
The final score, however, was IS
to 14 in favor of the "elects."
This nine, which is to represent
the School of Mines under the
management of Prof. F. A.
Jones, is as follows: Pitchers,
Chavez and Wilson; catcher,
Martinez; 1st base, Emilio Baca;
2nd base, Zingerly; 3rd base,
Smith; short, llaynes Howell;
right field, Abcrnathy; center
field, Wilson and Chavez; left
field, Gibbons. This team may
Eossiblv not succeed in beating
Ir. Martin's champions, but it is
perfectly safe to predict that
when the two teams meet there
will be a hot time in old town.

How Cheap Kiikliiif Powder In Made.
The Health Department of New
York has seized a quantity of so
called cheap baking powder,
which it found in that city. At
tention was attracted to it by the
low price at which it was being
sold in the department stores.
Samples were taken and the che
mist of the Health Department
reported the stuff to be "an alum
powder," which analysis showed
to be composed chiefly of alum
and pulverized rock.
The powder was declared to be
dangerous to health, and several
thousand pounds were carted to
the olTul dock and destroyed.
It is unsafe to experiment with
these so-called "cheap" articles
of food. They are sure to be it.ade
from alum, rock, or other injuri
ous matter. In baking powders,
the. high class, cream of tartar
brands are the most economical,
because they go farther in use
and are healthful beyond queston.
