THANKFULNESS THE KEYNOTE Special Significance Attaching to the Season of 1 906 The Future Looks Bright. Once more ho ha jijiy Christmas luy Is here with all tt p joyous Riving and receivint; with all its brightness and chrnr and with all tru rich sng RostWcmvss fiat centers round the life or Kim whos,. I.lrtli this festival commemorates. It is will that men should ponder at a time like this the wonrtfTful hiHtory of the manger horn In operation to aa extent heretofore undreamed of. Particularly have we of tTie south west felt the thrill and power of the spirit of brotherhood which Is abroad in tin land In the organization and Initiation of manifold agencies for the purpose of bettering our condi tions and raising the standard of manhood. Space forbids the mention of these varied associations and Insti tutions but they deal with almost every phasic of spiritual and social life. Prominent among them is the Invasion of the southwest by the Young Men Christ Ian assignation, that valuable Institution having al ready spcured a, foothold through the construction and projected erection of m. vera I buildings for the purpose of providing a decent place of ren devous for the hundreds of young i men separated through the exigencies jof business or physical condition from the disciplinary surroundings of home or friends. For yeirs no nciuircnient has been so selferident as the need of provision for the homeless young men who abound here In unusual pro portion and It is to be hoped that another Chrisnunr will not pass with out soiiu movement In th; direction having liee.i inaugurated here.

Through- j neighbors also, out this earth of ours today wherever I the "old, old story" "nils found its pa cifying and civili.ing way. men and women will call a halt In the pur suit of gain and gather with their families to celebrate around the fire side or household board the e lit of all events toward which Christen dom has bem looking eagerly for the past, few weeks. Truly this ambitious, selfish, money Kecking and all too often disapxinting old world of ours would ! mm h the worse off without this delightful Christmas holiday. For sometime past and particularly during the last two weeks our streets and show windows have presented tin unusually attractive appearance anil the stores and shops of Albuquerque have been alive with people intent upon securing those pleasant tokens of friendship und love which today they are bestowing with a lavish hand U on the ob.iwts of their devotion and esteem. Father, mother, son and daughter, young and old will share and Rhare alike In this grand ava lanche of gifts, and the ties of kin dred and association will be drawn more closely, in most cases never to be severed till this g netation of man kind shall have finished its mission aid aave faded into the ever expand ing pages of history. Today the love of parents for their children will be manifested. In many casB, o the ixint of sacrifice, and in return their sons and daughters will Ik stow iiihki them thoc evidences of affection and thankfulness so dear to the parental hsart. Everywhere the s-pirit of the day will captivate the people and the "I'eace on Earth (iood Will to Men" predicted on the first Christmas day in history will reign predominant. Love has be n quoted as the motive power of hu manity and this day is the one par ticular day of all the year which love herself has preempted. Lt us tlu 11 rejoice with the mul titude end give ourselves over to the . optimism of the season, not failing to remember tho marvelous .blessings which this year of 190ii, now dosing, has brought, to our country and in most cases to ourselves. N ver in all the proud record of this golden land has such prosperity and success greeted our efforts and never his the outlook for the future so gleamed with hope fulness and promise. Our barns are full to bursting, our factor- Captain K. H. Millet, one of pioneers of the southwest, is in city spending Christmas with his wife and daughter. Mr. Millet is now lo cated twenty miles south of l.aguna in Valencia county. The captain w.'s born and reared in Texas. The Millet ranch in Texas has bi en succeeded ly tiu- town of Millet. The amain came to New Mexico for 'lermanent residence sev enteen years, but previous to that time ho came to New Mexico fre quently to lo;k after property inter ests. In 1 "" Kuge:ie Millet, age 17 years, and a neighbor boy, ran away from the Millet ranch in Texas and Joined tile t'alahan expidition against the Imlla.is that were raiding and murder ing in southern Texas at that time. The expedition was under Captain Calaha.i. That was one time the I'nited Slates government sanctioned an ex pedition to Mexico. The Indiana would come across the line, steal aud murder and then return n cross the river. The orders were to follow tin ni to their rendivous and wipe them off the earth. The eomnvind consisted of 117 men. The Indians were joined by a large number of Mexicans and the Americans were competed to return to the northern bank of the Rio Crande.

Nor is this all for during i lie time that has elapsed since the ,'last Christmas day was celebrated the spirit which it in so large a de 1 gree generates has been translated as nev r before into substantial works of charity anil benevolence. In titutions of learning, hospitals, homes for the aged and infirm, foundations of various kinds for the relief and uplift, of specific classes heretofore in largo measure neglected, and an nn exemplified distribution of practical literature designed directly for the purpose of stirring mankind toward united effort in the direction of noble aim and ambitions have ben placed ma::d would have been lost iiail not (!i neral Lew Wallace, then in com mand of Fort Duncan, trained his can- ; nun so as to cover the crossing, i That was In-fore the great author j wroio his master piece, "It. n llur." !

Died Feb- ruary 25, 1888. Age 51 years 11 months 16 days. The above statement, pritm-d In uilt upon a black memorial card, in German, and the circumstance of find!t;g a handkerchli f near the body with the letter "K" marked in one corner, leads to the belief tiiat the unknown man found dead a short dis tance from the old volcano near Islela. bore the name of Kuide. So far It is the only clue that seems to establish his identity. Special (.Un ci r Farrell, ofthe Santa Fe, and some Islela Indians who are expert trail ers are today making further search if the locality in the hope that they will discover a railroad ticket he is believed to have had on his person, and letters which may char the mys tery of whence he came. That the man is a German, or of German extraction, there is little doubt. His features have a Teutonic cast. The hair Is sandy and the eyes blue; the mouth is large and the jaw square and heavy. The body is of a man about "5 years old. weighing about ltiu pounds, well built, strong nnd muscular. His clothing is of good quality. Otto IK'ickman. the well known real estate man. translated the me morial card, which was .sent to l'n derlaker Horders by Oflict r Farrell from Isleta this morning. Mr. P.ir ders arrived here late last evening with the body. It is lying at the Hor ders" undertaking establishment pend ing devlopments. Mr. Deickman stated the card was evidently printed in Germany. The name is a woman's. The border ilecot ations 011 it are artistically for eign. Did He Hide Letters Among Rocks? The body was discover d last Sun day. It was half dressed. The fore head is cut and bruised and there are larg bruises upon the legs and feet. 1 ne hociy was irozcn and is In ex cellent state of preservation. A vel, hat and watch found near the body were brought hi re. The memorial card was discovered by the Indians nbuut 1.1ti feet from the b :dy. It was torn into four nieces. The circumstaiici s of tind i g the toin card and tli" statement of a Santa Fe conductor who believes lie recognized the man liom a descrip tion Riven as 4.110 who was on his train last Wednesday with a through ticket to l.os Angeles from a point east, leads to the belief that he either tore his ticket up or hid it among tile rocks. The conductor does not remember the point from which the ticket was sold Special Officer Far rell and I'ndeiiaker Holders believe they might discover something about Hie man if they knew where the ticket was purchased. As circum stances point to th" fact that the man tried to c nieeal everything that might lead t the establishment of bis identity, the theory is advanc il that perhaps he hid the ticket in the crevices of some rocks. Also it is thought he might have conceal' d some letters along with it. The Santa Fe conductor s'ated that a man answering the description was on train No. 1 last Wednesday night,' and that when the train neared a side track half way between Albuquerque and Uleta he acted as though he was crazy anil insisted that the train was' going off the track.

No underclothes were on the body when it was found.
