A PAKTVthat is divided against
itself must fall.
If our democratic friends will
forjfive us this time we will
promise to do better next time.
Now shake hands, pay your
bets, apologize for the unpleasant
things you said, wink the other

The Chieftain had more
roosters but a lot of them ruptur
ed their jugular veins in the
exuberance of their efforts to do
justice to the occasion.
Just before the election the
democrats were predicting a
democratic landslide. The predic
tion was verified but as usual the
democrats slid the wrong way.
The republican party stood
fearlessly ujon its record, avowed
its purpose of conducting the af
fairs of the government in the
future as it had conducted them
in the past, and asked for a vote
of confidence. Thu vote was given
by a majority that affords Presi
dent Koosevelt absolute assurance
that his policies are heartily
endorsed by the American people.
The Chieftain presents its
compliments to its many demo
cratic friends in Socorro county
and begs leave to congratulate
them on the splendid fight they
put up. They were in power,
they realized their advantage,
and they conducted themselves in
a fashion that would command
the respect of any opponents, but
they were not quite equal to the

SHE FORCED HER WAY.
The Ruse Annie Russell Used to Oet
on the Stage. i
William Gillette was seeking a
young girl with a southern ac
cent to play Esmeralda. Annie
Russell answered an advertise
ment. She was in short dresses,
with her hair down her back and
sixteen years old.
"Now, my little girl, run back
to your good mother and your
Sunday school lesson." said the
dramatic kindly. "The stage is
not for such as you. Run along,
The little girl obeyed dutifully,
but with no intent of accepting
the dismissal as final. At the
place where she was boarding
was an actress who starred in the
small towns in "East Lynne,"
and from her Annie Russell bor
rowed an elaborate stage gown
with a long train which she
plastered with jewelry, also bor
rowed. She put on high heeled
shoes and piled her hair on the
top of her head. Thus arrayed
she again applied to Mr. Gillette
for the josition. He talked with
her without a suspicion that he
had seen her before, and later he
said to the manager:
"Well, I think that girl might
do. Of course we can easily
make her look younger, and some
good fairy will have to teach her
how to dress. But she is certain
ly the most intelligent looking
applicant we have had."
And that is how Annie Russell
secured the engagement that
made her fame. Everybody's
Not A Sick Say Since.
"I was taken severely sick with
kidney trouble. I tried all sorts
of medicines, none of which
relieved me. One day I saw an
ad. of your Electric Bitters and
determined to try that. After
taking a few doses I felt relieved,
and soon thereafter was entirely
cured, and have not seen a sick
day since. Neighbors of mine
have been cured of rheumatism,
neuralgia, liver and kidney trou
bles and general debility." This

to ' show proper respect for old

SHOPS OF CANTON.
Varying Fhasee of the Superstition
That Clings to Them.
A young man with a hall bed
room atmosphere about him got
off an elevated train at Rector
street. He omitted to take a
paper bag that a passenger who
got aboard with him at Fifty
ninth street saw him carrying.
"Hi!" shouted his fellow pas
senger. "You've forgotten your
The young men hurried off
without appearing to hear. The
train hand peeped into the bag.
"Broken shaving mirror this
trip," he said to the passenger.
"We run across broken mirrors
in bags or wrapped in neat news
paper parcels every few days.
For my part, I put the pieces
under the seat for the cleaners to
take away. If one is superstitious
at all it is just as unlucky to
dispose of the pieces of a broken
mirror as it is to break the glass.
I don't want any secondhand bad
luck handed out to me.
"Somebody has got to break
shaving mirrors or thvre wouldn't

young chaps who live irf board

pieces around when they break
one for fear of the landlady.

person on earth, not barring the
sailor, than the New York board
ing house keeper. I have heard
of cases where a man has been
asked to give up his room because
he happened to break a mirror."

Health is absolutely impos

Many serious cases of liver and
kidney complaint have sprung
from neglected constipation.

sick for three months. The
doctors said that he had quick
consumption. We procured a

Every Art and Industry Represented
In the Chinese City.
The merchants' shops are the
paradise of the stranger who I
visits Canton, China. The shops
have open fronts on either side
the narrow lane, and every art
and industry, the homeliest trade
and the most fascinating pursuit,
thrives in the dark passage.
Black swinging signboards pro
claim the business in characters
of red or go'd. Pandemonium
triumphs in a series of yells as
the chairmen scream for pass
room. The poles hit the pedestrian
in the eye, and the mandarían
joggles the stranger. The native
tilts his huge hat sidewise to
avoid a crush, and often the
coolies swing aslant in the alley
or duck into a store to avoid a
The Chinese as a people are
modest in their dress. The person
is rarely exposed. Women wear
double breasted sacks which lit
tight to the throat and men are
usually covered. But under the
stress of hard labor the man at
the forge is stripped to the waist,
and in the foundry a nearly nude
workman strides the iron seesaw
like a horse in the treadmill. The
butcher cleaves his ilesher on the
block amid dried rats and skins
of fowls stretched taut on the
rack. Next door the gold beater
hammers in his cave. Beyond
the kindling man piles high his
forest of fagots. Near by the
miller is beating the meal through
coarse sieves. His neighbor skins
fish and hopes to sell them from
the box where they float under
a feeble spurt of water. In the
adjoiningden beautiful embroider
ies are piled mountain high, with
silks, satins and brocaded taffetas
in wondrous designs of dragons
and flowers, llau Cheung Tai
patiently transfers them by the
hundred from shelf to table in
the hope that some stray bit may
catch the buyer's fancy. Feathers
are an important industry, and
fans, folding, or open, line the
next shop, painted in every
fanciful conception. Detroit Free

Bewhiskered Thibetan Animal Is
Strayed Over Line of Demarca
tion and the War Follows.
The frontier between British
India and Thibet traverses dis
tricts where there are mountain
pastures, and the main grievance
was that certain Thibetan goats
which were ignorant of the line
of demarcation were in the habit
of straying into British territory.
What particular harm the goats
did by browsing occasionally on
British grass is not very clear.
In any case, the damage could
not have been considerable. In
1739 England went to war with
Spain on account of the ear of a
certain Jenkins, which had been
cut off by some Spanish officials,
although it was contended that
the ear was still attached to Jenk'
ins' head. It has, however, been
reserved to this century for Eng
land to engage in a war that
promises to be extensive, on ao
