GoviiRNOK Otic ko's reappoint
ment is notable in several respects.
It is the lirst instance of a man's
succeeding himself as governor
of New Mexico. The reappoint
ment was originally made by
President McKinly not many
weeks before his death and
President Kousevelt's act is a
respectful endorsement of the
opinion and wish of his lamented
predecessor. In both instances
the reappointment was made in
the face of the vigorous and
determined opposition of a small
faction of the Governor's own
As to the opposition to the
Governor's reappointment, but
little need now be said. The
gentlemen who conducted that
opposition doubtless thought they
had a grievance. If they urged
their grievance honestly and
honorably they acted entirely
within their right. If they re
sorted to dishoiioroble methods,
as has been frequently charged,
they may safely be left to free
thrmsehes of their own unclcan
ness as best they can in the
reflection that wrongdoing has
again failed to achieve any but
its own legitimate results.
It is certain that Governor
(Hero's reappointment meets with
the approval of a vast majority of
the people of New Mexico. The
reason is not far to seek. His
first administration was char
acterized by a rapid development
of the territory's varied resources,
a large increase in population,
and a remarkable advance in all
lines of education. Uesides, the
business of the territory was
economically conducted in ail its
branches and the close of the
administration found the terri
torial f.nances in a most satisfac
tory condition. In view of these
facts it can hardly be wondered
at that the opponents of the ad
ministration did not meet with
the' approval and support that
IT is to te hoped, although it

On the canal (juestiou congress
means business. The House has
made the canal bill a special
order for January 7, just after
the holiday recess. It is the in
tention of that body to push the
bill to passage within a very few
days alter the beginning of its
consideration. Kichardson, of
Tennessee, the leader of the
democrats, intimated that there
would be no attempt made on his
side to obstruct the passage of
the measure. It is the purpose
of the republicans, however, to
let the appropriation bills hare
the right of way, as soon as they
are prepared, but the canal meas
wtll be pushed with a reasonable
degree of speed.
The Hepburn bill is the meas
ure which will be pressed in the
House. In the senate there is a
bill, shaped by Morgan, of Ala
bama, which differs from the
Hepburn bill in some particulars.
On essential matters, however, it
will be easy to harmonize the
two branches, providing that the
Senate passes its own measure.
There is a desire in both cham
bers to begin the work of canal
construction at the earliest prac
ticable moment. A great deal of
talk has been devoted to this
question in the past few years in
congress and in the prominent
newspapers all over the country,
and the people are not in need
of much further enlightenment
on this subject.
When Kichardson, the demo
cratic leader, said, as he has just
lone, that the canal question was
not a partisan issue, he showed
that he and his colleagues were
taking the correct view of the
matter. There is no politics in
the question of opening a water
way between the two great
oceans. All elements of the
American people are united on
this subject. The republican
majority in the senate showed its
broadness on this subject by giv
ing to Morgan the chairmanship
of the committee which has the
matter in charge in his chamber.
The Alabama senator has been
conspicuously identified for many
years with the consideration of
this question, and he, through
the favor of the Kepublican sen
ate, will have the honor of pre
siding over the committee which
has charge of this) matter at the
time it is pushed to enactment.
Even in the senate considerable
speed is likely to be made in the
consideration of this question.
He fore January ends, it is safe to
predict, the bill to construct a
canal across the isthmus of Pana
ma will be in the President's
hands. (J lobe-Democrat.
The Hat -Th- Man -The Coat.
William Allen White In McClure'a.
This is what ail Kooncvelt. He
doesn't, make up for the part. When
he wa police commissioner of New
York ho bought a slouch hat, then the
vogue. He liked it. It at well on his
head. No one noticed it. The fash
ion changed, he bought another. Men
lifted their eyebrows, but said nothing1.
He wore the name kind of hat in Wash
ington as assistant secretary of the
navy. He was a young man, so he was
not hanged for it, Men are always
willing to give a yoitnrr man a chance
to live down an indiscretion. When
elected governor of New York, he still
wore the hat of his earlier youth.
"Ah," they said, Vof course! naturally!
affecting the wild and woolly! Can't
get over the fact that he was a Kotigh
Kider!"' Also he greeted people
genially; spoke ingenuously, and lid
many thing not permitted by the
laws of Draco for example, he talked
to a policeman of his acquaintance on
Iiroadway, forsooth, or rode in a loco
motive cab, certainly an inspiriting
and harmless performance. After he
was elected vice president he wore a
gray sack suit, a coat without tails or
skirl , on informal occasions. Think
of that! Of course, the men who
hated him knew that he was stark
mad. And when at state ceremonies
lie wore a high hat and a frock coat,
they bhrugged their shoulders and
said he was getting awelled up as vice

Hie Tunnel Was Forgotten.
At Brussels the visitor is often struck
by the extreme thinness of the earth
covering the Braine le Comte tunnel
and wonders why the common sense of
the engineers who made the line did
rot direct them tocontinue the cutting
and thus avoid a subterranean pas
age. The mystery is thus explained: When
railways were in their veriest infancy,
the Belgian government sent a party
of engineers over to England to
acquire experience in construction of
the new iron highways, and on their
return they were instructed to lay out
the lirst railway in that enterprising
little kingdom. The work was accord
ingly put in hand, but on its
completion one of the engineers
"Good gracious, we have forgotten
The consternation was general, espe
cially when it was remembered that
there was not a single line in England
but could boast of a tunnel. What was
to be done? Nothing but to construct
the long corridor at Braine le Comte,
and when it was finished, the earth was
put on top. The tunnel was the glory
of the line.
Massugc For the Scalp.
The hair falls out when the strength
of its roots is insufficient to sustain its
weight any longer, and anew hair will
take its place unless the root is dis
eased. For this reason each person
has a certain definite length of hair.
When the hair begins to Kplit or fail
out, massage of the scalp is excellent.
IMace the tips of the lingers firmly
upon the scalp, and then vibrate or
move the scalp while holding the pres
sure steadily. This will stimulate the
blood vessels underneath and bring
about belter nourishment of the
hair. A brush of unevenly tufted
bristles is also excellent to use upon
the scalp, not the hair.

All Doctors have tried to cure
catarrh by the use of powders
acid gases, inhalers and drugs in
paste form. Their powders dry
up the mucuous membranes
causing them to crack open and
bleed. The powerful acids used
in the inhalers have entirely eaten
away the same membranes that
their makers have aimed to cure,
while pastes and ointments cannot
reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has
for many years made a close study
and specialty of the treatment of
catarrh, has at last perfected a

When one's friend is a scientist and
given to experiments, a little caution
may not be out of place before gon
scnting to do him a favor. That,
however, did not occur to a certain
well-known public man whose ex
perience is related in an Australian
pajier. He went to the laboratory of
an old schoolmate, a Melbourne pro
fessor of chemistry, to make a frienUiy
call. The professor was studying a
dark brown substance spread out on a
sheet of paper.
"I say," he cried, when greetings
had been exchanged, "would you
kindly let me place a bit of this on
your tongue? My taste has become
vitiated by trying all sorts of things."
"Certaiiily," responded the ac
commodating friend, and he promptly
opened his mouth.
The professor took up the substance
under analysis and put it on his
friend's tongue. The man worked it
around in his mouth for fully a
minute; tasting it much as he might
have tasted a choice confection.
"Note any effect?" asked professor.
"It doesn't paralyze or prick your

"I thought not. There are no
alkaloids in it, then. How does it

"But what is it, anyhow?" he inquir
