Mining Man Declares Con
Praises Gen. Diegnez.
"I don't know but what it would
be. better for Carrsnxa to remain
where he is. The .gravest thing that
Mexico now is facing is the coming
rational election. The two chief can-
didates for bis positon are generals.

ho pays his troops regularly every
ten c.avs, and who sees that they are
pmperly quipped. He is one of the

THIS PICTURE IN MONDAY'S HERALD.
Gerald ine Farrar never did a better picture
than "The World and Its Woman," in wbieb she
opened a week's engagement at the Ellanay Sunday.
In fact, if there are any better pictures, any
tnat notd tne interest better and seem to have no ex
traneous scenes or action, it is not possible to recall
them at this time.
Vrhe. crowds were so great that never at any
time diiring the showing of the picture was every
body able to get in until the last performance, at ten
oclock in the evening.
If the theater is not packed all week, it will be
because the public does not appreciate a great pic
ture. Not having seen all the great pictures, it is
not possible to say that this is the greatest ever
made, but of all 1 have seen, this is, to my mind, the
