Mr. George C. Hughes who con

manner in which he applied himself
in looking after details and in every

himself a master of the situation,
and when he departed from the Cape
for his home in Pennsylvania after
the contest was over, he took with

RARELY FAILED TO SELL
One Sells Novelty Combination
Padlocks in Recently Burglar
It is said that a pair of young men
are operating in this eity in the capa
city of agents and that they have
adopted some unique methods for
the purpose of accelerating the sale
of their wares. One of them is tak
ing orders for enlarged pictures, and
as a means of commanding the at
tention of the housewife he tells
her that he is enumerating all the
children of school age, and prevails
on the mother to bring all the little
ones into his presence. He then
springs his real purpose and in a
convincing way shows the mother,
without the shadow of doubt, how
really essential it has become for
her to obtain nice enlarged pictures
of each of her little darlings, and
as a rule his argument is to impres
sive that in many cases he meets
The other young man works along
different principles. It is said that
he selects a locality that looks
promising, and forthwith begins opera
tions. He is selling a keyless padlock
with a different combination for each
one sold. Before making his public
appearance it is said that the whole
neighborhood in which he works has
become wrought up over the intru
sion of night marauders who have
entered the outhouses, coal sheds,
etc., and while nothing is apparently
stolen, the contents of the places
are left in a badly confused state.
Needless to say, there is a sale made
when the man with the padlock

unkind enough to believe that this
suave gentleman is possessed of guilty
knowledge, if not directly connected
with the midnight atrocities leading
up to the transaction.

RUIZ IS NAMED
Succeeds Rojas, Who was
Thought to be Too Pa
cific in Present Crisis.
IN LINE FOR, PRESIDENCY
No Change in Mediation Plans
Contemplated by New Officials-Ambassador
(WNU News Service.)
City of Mexico, May 4. Licentiate
Esteba Rult has been appointed min
ister of foreign affairs in the Huerta
cabinet, to succeed Portillo y Rojas,
who resigned on request of a cabinet
committee of three, sent to him by
Huerta, who objected to bis pacific
policy In the present crisis.
The Spanish ambassador, Mr. Rl
ano, was officially informed by cable
of the selection of Ruls and he carried
the announcement at once to the Ar
gentina legation. The mediators were
Immediately called together and a
conference began with the Spanish
ambassador taking part.
O'&haughneeay Introduced Him.
Ruiz, the new foreign minister, was
under secretary of Portillo. He was
unknown to Huerta until Introduced
to him by Charge O'Shaughnessy one
day Just before the severance of diplo
matic relations, when' the charge
could find no one else to take up an
Important matter with Huerta. He has
assisted In the mediation negotiations
and It Is authoritatively stated that
the change will not .affect the contin
ued progress of the mediation plans.
Appointment Causes Speculation.
Outside the mediation conference,
the Ruls appointment caused wide
spread speculation. The fact that he
had been mentioned as probably Huer
ta commissioner In case the mediators
proposed a commission to settle) the
entire trouble, led to the belief that
Rulx would pursue the same friendly
policy that Portillo bad shown in the
negotiations up to this time. But in
some quarters It was felt that Huerta
himself was directing affairs with a
strong hand, and that Ruls was more
amenable to Huerta's direction than
Portillo had been.
In Line for High Office.
Ruiz has been in the Mexican gov
ernment in various capacities for
many years, but never affiliated him
self with any particular faction. His
position has been analogous to that of
an assistant secretary in the United
States state department, but in his
new position he is in direct line and
next heir to the presidency.
