One of Nata Straw's Morle.
Nate Straw, the great bear
hunter of New Mexico, is in the.
citv. Mr. Straw has killed prob
ably 300 bears in the territory,
besides smaller game in such
numbers that hehaslost the count.
Of course his wild adventures
and hair breadth escapes have been
many, and to hear him relate
them in his own peculiar fashion
is a rare treat. Hut he sometimes
tells stories that are not bear
stories. For illustration, here is
one of them:
"Once when I was in SiWer
City I met a woman who had just
come with her husband trom a
visit down in Mexico. She had
found out who I was and that I
was going out to the Mogollotis.
She said that she and her husband
wanted to go out with me but she
wanted to know first if there
were any earthquakes in those
mountains. I told her I hadn't
seen any lately and then she asked
if I couldn't scare up one for her
her especial benefit. Of course I
finally asked her what on earth
she wanted of an earthquake.
"Well," she said, "you sec, when
John and I were down in Mexico
we had a genuine, full grown
earthquake. There was no mis
take about it. It scared John out
of a year's growth, but it tickled
me nearly to death. You wonder
why I was so tickled, I see.
Well, I'll tell you why. John
and I, we have been married for
two years and it's a solemn fact
that that blessed Mexican earth
quake is the only thing that has
happened in that time that he
he hasn't blamed me for. So if
you have any earthquakes in the
Mogollón mountains we are going
out there with you."
A CIohpIj Contested líame.
The American and the Mexi
can base ball teams of the city
met on a bloodless field Christ
mas day to contest for the su-
Íremacy in the' national gamt.
'he two teams had rues. Levers
times before with results that
were disastrous to the hopes of
the Americans. These did not
despair, however, and for a few
days before Christmas were prac
ticing with an air of determina
tion that argued well for them.
There was a large crowd of spec
tators present and it is reported
that considerable money changed
hands on the result of the game.
The contest was a hot one and
abounded in exciting incidents.
The score was 12 to 0 in favor of
the Americans. Viven los Americanos!

As the impulse of every one at
this joyous season of the year is
to wish his or her friends a Mer
ry Christmas, so as our thoughts
stray to dear old Socorro and to
the pleasure we have had through
the columns of The Chieftain,
a desire is born to wish its genial
editor and his staff a Merry
Christmas and a Happy New
Since our arrival in Silver
City our hearts have thrice been
gladdened by the receipt of "our
home paper," and with pleasure
have we noticed mention of dif
ferent friends, many whose kind
ness can never be forgotten, and
through these columns I would
like to express my appreciation
of favors shown us the last few
days of our stay in Socorro, cs-
Íccially by the business men and
lesdames Jones, Hilton, and
Graham. May peace and pros
perity attend them always.
To all who expressed them
selves interested in our welfare, I
am glad to say that we are well
pleased with our new home and
are very nicely located near the
Normal School. We find the
people here very kind and socia
ble, business men most accommo
dating, and church affairs of the
four denominations Baptist,
Methodist, I'pjscopal, and Pres
byterian unusually prosperous.
But however pleasant and at
tractive our new home may be
come it can never erase from our
hearts the love we have for dear
old Socorro and her many kind,
Again wishing you and all our
friends a very happy, prosperous
I am, very respectfully,
Mrs. Dixie Quintan.
