New Mexico United The viaiem, ,11 may perhaps savor of triteness and rf in-1 1 1 i :. hut It i . without Ji'iilit mif that New Mexico's outlook Is brighter today than ever before in its history. Abundant rainfall has Insured )H'- pel ity in the pliecp and cattle sections, increased mining activity Is bringing in capital steadily, the pressing demand among central and eastern farmers for more and heaper fanning lands has brought an unparalleled influx of desirable and permanent rulers to all parts of the territoiy, the lumber industry is now being developed along up-to-date nnd profitable lines, and the natural re sources 'f the country being given practical development and outlet. Not less important than this material advancement is the political out look for the territoiy. The political bickering and dissension of the past jear has been recognized by all as a serious hindrance to advancement, and a stumbling block to development. As in every other section, the people of New Mexico are anxious to secure the best practicable discharge of the func tions of Ils public offices, county and territorial, and will endorse any honest, vorkable reform, but it is being demonstrated more plainly every day that a reform movement which has its Impetus In the elimination of personal political rivals and the mere advancement of its own votaries is a doomed house built upon the nands. All over the country the death knell has bee! sounded of the reform movement, w hich caters to th ? merely destructive sentiment, without offering a feasible constructive alternative. That the brief reform campaign of the late terrtlorial executive has been one of 111 sdviscd personal assault, without the predominating element of "fair play-' o vital to oil altruistic movements, cannot be questioned. That there was but one side to the moral questions cannot be and has not been sustained, and the action of President Roosevelt, the world's rec ognized leader in practical reform and fair play, is the most fitting answer to Impractical and destructive reform movements. No honest, unprejudiced citizen can question the ability, record or mo tives of the in-coming executive, George Curry, who as governor of the Is land of Samar, has more than made good, and his reappointment there last year was at the urgent request of the president, against Mr. Curry's personal wishes. Governor Curry comes back to New Mexico as its chief executivi v1th a clean personal reputation, an enviable official record, a thorough ac quaintance with all parts of the territory', Its conditions and needs. He is a man who Manila close to Vhe president and to the people, and a man under whom all republicans may unite to the advancement of New Mexico's chief business in hand the development and upbuilding of the territory. Will Bonds On tomorrow, May 4, the election for the special bond Issue to provide a new city hall for Albuquerque will be held. Will the bonds carry? The Citizen makes the admission with considerable regret, but the out look is not bright. , One reason Is that it will require voters in the city to authorize the bond Tho Irwllcnf tnnn cli-a that fl twn-thtrda vnta will not he rtollpri. TherA is a lack of interest in some quarters, and In addition an undercurrent of op position is asserting Itself today. 1 Just why any one who has the interests of Albuquerque at heart shoul 1 oppose the building of a new city hall in the face of the fact that taxes will not be increased, The Citizen is at a loss to understand. It is true that the opposition comes from a set of knockers who have never been known to do anything or favor anything for the advancement of tbls city. They are a blot upon municipal advancement. They can not be too strongly condemned for their lack of public spirit and personal selfish ness. - i This paper, while realizing that the chances of the success of the bond iesue carrying wera not the brightest in the world, has boosted for the new cltjr hall persistently. ; This paper will continue to boost until the special election is over, and It Will then start anew, boosting for a new city hall, if the present bond Issuo is not endorsed by the taxpayers. The city needs the new hall, and needs it badly. I It is the duty of every right-thinking taxpayer in this city who has tin; interests of himself and of Albuquerque at heart, to vote for the bonds to morrow. Every taxpayer should go on record at the polls as favoring the city hall. There Is no question that a majority of them will do so, but whether there will be a two-thirds vote or not Is a matter of some question today. The Citizen hopes that the bond issue will be approved, and is slow to believe that It will not be. Do your duty at all events, and go to the polls bright and early to cast another ballot In favor of municipal improvement and the advancement of Albuquerque, liemember the day, tomorrow, Saturday, May 4. Sizing Up Men The art of all arts for the leader is the ability to tasure men. to weigh them, to "size them up," to estimate their possibilities, to place them so as to call out their strength and eliminate their weakness, .says Orison .Swett, in the Success Magazine. This is the epitaph which Andrew Carnegie has chosen for himself: "'Here lies a man who knew how to get around him men much cleverer than himself." People wonder how a Morgan, a Harriman, a Ryan, a Wana maker, can carry wn such prodigious enterprises. The secret lies In their ability to project themselves through a mighty system by being able to choose men who will fit the places they are put in, men who can carry out their employer's program to the letter. Men who are capable, of succeeding in a large way are shrewd enough to know that they do not "know it all,'' (shrewd enough to employ men who are strong where they are weak, to sur round themselves with men who have the ability which they lack, who ca.i Huppleent their weakness and shortcomings with strength and ability. Thus, in their combined power, they make an effective force. The trouble is that many men, because of their inability to read human nature, duplicate their own weaknesses in their' employes, thus multiplying their chances of failure. The leader must not only be a good Judge of other", but he must also be able to read himself, to take an inventory of his own strong points and weak points. Men have often been elected to high office or to till very important positions at the head of great concerns because of their recognized ability, who have disappointed the expectations of those who placed their hopes in them, simply because they could not read people. They may have been well educated, well posted, strung intellectually, may have hail a great deal of general ability; but they lacked the skill to read men, to measure them, to weigh thein, to place, them where they belonged. The young man starting out for himself ought to make a study of his power of penetration, of his character-reacting ability. He ought to make it a business to study men, estimate their capabilities and the motives whic.i actuate them, and learn to read them as an open book. The involuntary acts and natural manner of a man Indicate more tha i his studied conversation. The eye cannot lie. It speaks the truth ii all lan guages. It often contradicts the tongue. While the man is trying to deceive you with words, his ees are telling you the truth; his actions are indicative of the real man. while the tongue may only i t present the diplomat, the 111..11 who is acting. Some nun MTm incapable of projecting system and order through their establishments. They may do their own work well, and then they strike their limitations. They are not good Judges of human nature; their discern ment is not eh. up. They are misled by conversational powers, display of education, and often place a theoretical man where only practical talei.t could succeed. They are likely to place a man of great refinement, sens -tivencus, delicate make-up, in a position where a strong, robust, thlck-skinncl man Is required, where an oversensitive soul will chafe and shrink from t'.i cold aggressive business methods necessary to effective, efficient management People are continually being led into all sorts of unfortunate position.-, entangling alliances, and mortifying, embarrassing situations because of their lack of ability to read human nature and to estimate character at a glance. Good people everywhere are being Imposed upon and are losing their money In all sorts of foolish investments because of their Ignorance of human na ture. They are not able to .see the rascal, the scoundrel behind the mask. They have not developed the power of discernment, the ability to see the "wolf In the sheep's clothing." The knowledge of human nature as a protector of money, of ( har.u te as a protector against frauds and Imposition 1b Inestimable. To discern the difference between the false and the true, to place the rlght values upon men, to emphasize the right thing In the ill, to discriminate between the genuine and the pretended, is an accomplishment which may be worth Infinitely more to you than a college education without this practical power, and may make all Ihe difference ii you between stn-ee-s and f lilure In, ppi -it -n :) ni'.-ci y. m i; obfceiVe I.

We're frightened lest 'twill fall. There's a smear upon our shirt front And a smudge upon our ear; We're taking down the arlor stove For gentle spring is here. We're taking down the parlor stove.

O ' Human aliiiv. 1 saw a fellow standing on the street corner the other day. It was raining like blazes. He had no um brella, raincoat or rubbers, and he was sure getting soaked. A friend came splashing; across to him and of fered the kindly protection of an um brella. "Awful, isn't it," he began. "Look at that street. I'll bet the mud Is two feet deep and it doesn't do any thing but rain, rain, rain. Gee, I wisli it would let up." "Let up," said the first man. "why tliis is worth more to this town than if Rockefeller had driven through the streets and scattered a barrel of $i gold pieces on the pavements. This kicking makes me tired. IMople howl when it rains a few days and then when it gets good and dry and ihe grass all dries up and the roads get full of chuck holes and the least little breeze raises a Hurry of sand Ihey kick about it being a godfor saken country w lit re it never rains.

D ISOM-OK, THE JtOOSTF.Il. CHIEF OF POLICE MAILS 1000 PHOTOS OF R05COE (To be continued.) f j DAILY SHORT STORIES j THE DA? OF MIRACLES A prominent New York phvsiclan told a funny story to a gathering of his colleagues at a banquet recently which not only provoked laughs, but also a lively discussion on the things medical which concerned the story. "In a rather woolly summer re sort In southern Montana." said 1he M. I)., "there are some mineral baths hot and cold, which are said to be particularly good for rheumatism. Last summer I spent n few months there and made the acquaintance of several of the llmpy tenderfcet. Two of them were Smith and Jones. Smith hobbled about with a pair of crutches, while Jones made about with the aid of a double-barreled shotgun. "There Is good hunting In that country, and besides deer and elk not infrequent is it that an old grizzly hobbles down from the mountains to partake of the living waters. "One bright summer afternoon, Jones returned from a little hunting Jaunt in the woods. Smith. In one of the baths, was allowing the knots In his knees and knucjUes to un- loose. Jones had stopped to 'ight ills pipe, his gun resting in the hof low of his aim. "Suddenly, quite unannounced. a large cinnamon bear ambled from be hind Smith's bathhouse. Jones rais ed his gun and fired and, irritated by the flatter of lead on his grizzly flank, the cinnamon strode after Jones. Jones cut a neat circle, eluded the bear and rushed for the bathhouse next to the one In which Smith was bathing. "Hut to the bear all bath houses f.ppeared alike. The fractious fellow dashed to the nearest one, pushed open the door and prepared for ven geance. "Put It happened to he Smith's bathhouse Instead of the one Jones had entered. "Friends," said the M. P., "I hap pened across the lawn Just at a cru cial moment. I saw Smith dash out Smith, the man of the crutches, mind you, who had hobbled about for seven years. "He dashed down the lane at a clip that would have put to shame any champion sprinter of the cinder path, and even lengthened the dis tance between the cinnamon find himself so much that the tiear turn ed and ran toward the wlldwood. "Strangely, too, gentlemen, there after Smith walked no more with crutches. Whether It was the scare or whether the good, healthy sprint unknotted his muscles I cannot say. but it cured Smith and he is a well man to this day." 0 GETTING POLISHED (111- hi. A. Vm-clii'i. J "I don't object to being polished, so I Can act like a real gentleman. I am mattered up so I don't put my elbows on the table and as for keep ing the end of the spoon out of my mouth. I'm an expert, but, by Jove. I'm through being polished up any more." drawled the dry goods clerk, in the latest style. "What's wrong?" "Wrong? say, you know my youngest sister, Jane? That's her real name when she goes to papa for money am the cards it's spelled with a Y . before the N and about four consonants after each vowel. Well. Jane loves me. and after she went through all the classes on how to act and not show your real bring up. she landed on me. 'Jack dear." says ulster, 'you are the best salesman in Witherly's and you are all right, except you act Just like all American men. You are too busy to know the right things to do those nice little politenesses, and I'm going to polish you up for Miss Wltherly.' Of course that sounded good to me, I'm for owning the store, and I was getting on tine after a few lessons; had everything running smoothly. Why, I was so polished that it made me sick to watch my fellow mortals eat, or act as though they weren't drag that marred my happiness. If I ged up. There was only one thing found Jane on the porch or met her on the street, I would forget to tip my li.it. "Jane said she was entitled to as much respect as any other girl. It sounded like tint book, but it always made me fell foolish to act as if I was glad to see her. "Well, I forgot several times, a I have already remarket), Jane warn ed me Til give you a lesson, young man, some day, that will make you remember. It will be for your own Hood, and will hurt me more tlfin j ou but.' "Say. yesterday. I Just caught on to the smoker as tin- express train pullet! out. I was in an awful ru-h wanted to get over to the park with the sticks and play a hole m two so when I got off at Hde park and saw Jane coming home from the matinee.

Otero against the city of Albutiuerque for $1,SS8.73. This sum includes the rent on the property used for a city hall, at $45 a month, from November 1, 1 1 t 4 . until June 12. 1!oi6. The original suit was for $2.ooii more than the amount in the verdict. From June 12. l'JOti, up to April l, 1'oiT. the rent of the city was $!0 a month. The rent for" the use of the city hall has not been paid to any body since the suit was tiled against the city two years ago, but it has been accumulated in the city treasury since that time. Practically all that the plaintiff, Alfredo J. Otero, has secured is the extra $4", a month from June 12, l-ooi, to April 1, this year.
