The Cltfsen yesterday contained a tory Just a short story o the effect that Dr. Lukens, superintendent of the Children's Home Society, had In charge, a ten day old. baby of good but poor parentage, for which a home was sorely needed. (The work of this society, which Is purely non-sectarian, is one of the most worthy In the land. at has undertaken the hard task of caring for the homeless, frlendles, sin surrounded children of the territory, and surely there could be no object more blessed. The fact that a baby only ten days old Is practically advertised to cive away, however, is something that ought to make the people of all conditions top and think. It Is ad but it Is true that in the American home of today there Is getting to be less' and less room for the baby. Our president has called attention to race suicide; it is one of the most wretched conditions of our so-called higher civilization. (Parents of today or rather those who should be parents prefer in so many cases to have a few more luxuries In preference to rearing a child. A few more clothes, a few more knick nacks. a few more amusements take the time and the money and the energy that ought by all meant to be devoted to a much higher end a far nobler duty. So it Is that the childless home is gaining ground fast among the very people those of the middle and wealthy classes where good healthy Am erican boys and girls should be reared. On the other hand, men and women are passing from the prime of life Into old age, childless only later to regret that their own folly robbed them w.l what would be their greUwt blessing In declining years. "We don't wnt any children," is an expression heard too often. It should be a badge of shame to every normal man and every normal woman who have entered the marriage contract under ordinary conditions. Thus It la that the cocletv for the orotectlon of children is having such a tax BDon Its resources. It is true that In many cases the evil of race ulclde is finding Its own antidote in the childless homes of old age, where babies of indigent parents re received with open arms to be cared for by people who should have had children of their own. . ' These homes if thev are moral and healthful, are provided with children of other parents, taken in charge later by the society. But the growth of race suicide and the tendency to shirk the care of Infants bv the people of today. Is the most disgraceful evil of modern times, A gaudily dressed woman carrying a spiteful, ugly, much washed and oe""smed dog. is a sight to disgust any honest man or woman, and the man with the foppish attire, who Is generally her consort Is even more dis gusting. Perhaps the evil will correct Itself but in the meantime the na tion, the state, the town and the home will suffer a loss that will be oaiiy felt more heavllv as the years roll around. . The Children's Home Society Is a national institution New Mexico has onlv one of its numerous branches. The organization has taken a strong stand not only against race sui cide but against any attempt of parents Capable ef caring for children, to foist their offspring onto charity. Moreover, the society will actively engage in prosecuting any one found making such an attempt and it Is sad to relate the society has al readv been forced to do so. So far as possible, the fociety aids indigent parents to care for their children and prefers to leave the babe in Its own home where possiDie, Oniv in extreme cas& does the society take charge of the child and when It does, there are always reasons enough to satisfy the law of God or of man for so doing. But the officers of the society, not only In New Mexico but generally over the country, are fighting a losing fight, so long as the morality of men and women is no higher than to crowd from the home It choicest bletslng the healthy American baby. ierij6ccUi Boosting No other food deteriorate so -rapidly M the Oyster.

Not Going Out of Business We Meet AH Competition!! ABOUT TOWN It Is with pleasure that The Citizen sees the press of New Mexico laying aBlde every other consideration and taking up the cause of statehood ahd of the proper entertainment of the National irrigation congress. tBoth go hand In hand now and the governor Is personally visiting ter rltorlal cities and towns boosting for both. This is the true spirit and under such conditions this paper does not believe that congress can long deny us statehood while the success of the Irrigation Congress Is assured. Among the Ftrongest and most public spirited editorials to appear re cently on the Irrigation Congress Is one In the New Mexican yesterday. It is of particular Interest because Colonel Max Frost, its author, was a member of the executive committee of the third National Irrigation Congress, which was held here in Albuquerque many years ago. Colonel Frost realises the importance of the big congress to this terri tory and in speaking of It he says: "Next year's National Irrigation Congress will be held In Albuquerque. The New Mexican is on record from the date of the first meeting of this Important body as having been strongly In IU favor and aiding its work In every way. The third national irrigation congress was held in the city of Albuquerque and the editor of this paper at that time was a member of the executive committee thereof. The lute Walter C. Hadley who represented Brnallllo county in the legislative assembly, upon the urgent solicitation of the New Mexican and also by its aid, secured a smell appropriation of 11,000 to defray the expenses of the congress In the year 1895, and at that time It was a success. It was still small and but 150 delegates were present but It was the beginning and It aided in the present great development and beneficial acts of the gathering. Klnce then the New Mexican has cordially and earnestly supported the movement yearly and it is beyond cavil that the recognition received by New Mexico and the many resolutions adopted favoring its desires have added materially In the advancement of the terri tory. Under these conditions It is but natural that this paper should be readv and willing to help in every proper way to make the coming congress in Albuquerque a sucte. creditable to the people of the territory at large and to the Duke City iu particular, and so mat it may oe a memoraoie anu auspicious event in the history of the territory. The New Mexican will cheerfully and loyally support Governor George Curry and the board of control of the congress In the Duke City In 1U columns and otherwise to bring about this greatly to be desired end. The affair should not be con sidered local but territorial. -It should be made an event in which the people at large should become greatly interested and which should be helped not only by all Interested In irrigation and land matters but by all loyal and patriotic cltlxens who have the genuine advance and good of this comnmoweulth at heart." Denver secured the democratic convention. This uits the west: it will bring money to Denver, and the assemblage of so many prominent members of the great calamity bowling party will have a wholesome effect in enlarging the republican vote. Its an ill wind that blows nobody good. ' Denver is at least to be praised In no uncertain tones for her enter prise Having failed to secure the republican national convention, she landed the democratic one. A city is like a man.

Mr. MeCord will remain in Albuquerque for some time with headquarters at the Al vurado hotel.

Albuquerque Is rapidly becoming a life insurance center, and It is to be hoped that the men of the town will take advantage of . the oppor tunities offered here to insure the future welfare of those depending upon them. Dr. W. O. Tight, presi dent of the University of New Mex ico, recently expressed himself strongly in favor of life Insurance, and even dictated a letter to the local manager of the company in which he Is Insured, with a view of encouraging others to take out poli cies. He says, writing to the Pacific Mutual: - "I deslr in say, as a policy holder In the Pacific Mutual. I have al ways been pleased with the method of doing business of your company, and I have every faith in its Integrity and good management and feel that I can heartily recommend it to any one desiring insurance.
