Another bit of the history of the work of the last legislature is of inter est Just at the present time, when the tax matter is attracting the general attention of the press and public. On the 25th day of February, last, rl in t lie house with the following title: 1 act to provide for assistants, clerk and stenographer, in the office raveling auditor and bank examiner, and to provide compensation and ,g expenses therefor." course, the object of this bill was to increase the efficiency of the ser vice of the office of the traveling auditor. The Increase in the efficiency here would result in the gathering of data regarding this very question which we are so greatly interested in at the present time and which we are brought face to face with by the action of the board of equalization. This bill introduced by the speaker did not get very far, but as far as might have been expected under the circumstances. It was referred lo the finance committee, James W. Chaves.-chairman, and there it died. We can look back on the record of the legislature and in each instance where a bill was introduced providing for some system whereby more effec tive methods could be adopted for the collection or the equalization of taxes, tuich legislation was speedily and effectually killed. It was not wanted by the bosses. They were satisfied with things as they already were. They did not want the quiet and peaceable condition, wherein all their affairs were satisfactorily guarded, disturbed. The other fellow was carrying the burden and that was easy for the boss. Now that these questions are being forced upon our attention by the condition that was sure to come, we see the utter inefficiency of the last legislature and realize the influences that controlled it and we are reaping the harvest of selfishness and mercenary greed. This is a lesson which the citizens of this state cannot afford to let pass unheeded. They can profit by it. at the next election if they will, by selecting men for their loyalty, ability and regard for the interests of the people ol the state, rather than because they wear a certain political collar and are the henchmen of a certain few bosses who have so long controlled the af fairs of this state. 0 V TO MAKE THE CHANGE. is an encouraging sign that bo great interest seems to be shown in the land sale to be held at Iteming on December 8, under the directiou of Land rntvimiealnnpp lrvipn. ft is said that communications are ..... -nnAt fhnun nrnt Hie UUUIIIIJ ir6aiu."6 n.mv ......... ....... ......... ,i'i.uill tlie middle and western states, including California This is what we need and whatve -b-J-'been 8trlvlng for in the past few years. We want ettJJ. an(J we want tnem from the class of men who are wniir' homes and who will develop the acres which they take ., 'up. " There is a thing worthy of study and emulation in the matter which Is brought out in the manner in which this sale is being noticed in all parts of the country. Not all sections of New Mexico would attract the attention that is called to the Mimbres Valley. No part of the state is better known. It Is because the men of that particular section have stood together, In season and out of season, and boosted with all their might and iu unison and with out bickering and jealousy, for the benefit of their own special corner ot the state. They realized that the success of the valley would bring a proportionate measure to each individual and no one expected all there was of the pros perity and the profit It was a partnership between aJl the residents of the .Mimbres Valley. That is the only spirit that will bring success to any com- """iTnity of action in the effort to bring more people who will add to the wealth ot the city and the county is the only winning play. Here, in the county of Santa Fe, we could offer inducemtnts that would draw hither a large population if we would take up the question of the irri gation of some of these lands adjacent to us and put them in shape to be profitably farmed. a A few years ago the valley of the Mimbres did not look as it does today. It looked as hopeless as does any country that is wholly undeveloped and unoccupied. Today there is no place on the continent that is more attractive or that promises greater things. It was united, untiring, consistent, intelligent effort that made the change, and the same can be done here in the county of Santa Fe. It is all up to the citizens themselves. 0 ?.Tfl,A..?19!!(T,t,rn,,lr comely fact was flushed. She figeted and swayed. Every little while she burst forth into silly laughter-not the product of gaiety, but more like . the colicky grinning of babes in pain. Once she swore. Quite often she mumbled. Sometimes across the soiled surface of her brain there flitted obscene images and then she talked in words which made the recording angel weep. Years of downward living were in her face, her dress, her drooling man ner A, drunken man is sad enough to look upon. But a drunken woman, one who might have been a wife, a mother, who once was a cunning rosy, lipped pink-aud-cream baby.

A sanctuary pro faned, innocence bespattered, beauty and purity trodden into the mire of the suiter the finest possibility of life turned into the most disheartening. Yet .round this drunken woman, pitiable product of man's greed and cruelty, a group of men and boys was gathered, jeering and BneerlnS- They saw not the immense waste of precious value, the wreckage which a rightly ordered human society would long ago have salvaged!

The men who helped to hasten her descent weren't put out of the meet ng. Onfyhe woman was stoned-the woman who might have been a cherished viie, a useful and honored mother. Could savages have done much worse? President Wilson has announced that It is probable that the tariff will not reduce the cost of living.

I am glad that Uncle Sam is at last to recognize the work of Superintend ent Van Xuyveuheim and will give to the national cemetery the attention that it so richly merits. The lodge is to have telephone con nection, is to be lighted with elec tricity, the floors are to be replaced with native pine and maple and a bath room is to be installed. The con gratulations of all the people of Santa Fe are extended the superintendent and his wife over this attention which the government has at last consented to bestow. To look at the national cemetery now and compare it with the one we were forced to see before Captain Van iVuyvenheim came here as superin tendent one can scarcely believe it is the same place. He has well earned the additional comforts which Uncle Sam has promised. The approach to this beautiful and sacred spot is still disgraceful and ought to be given at tention, but the moment the vision reaches the point which is government soil, the change is Btrik'"?: v z" strikt'"ri"l. is neatness am'. iiaences intelligent ! cr2i2.Su" - "STrict attention Then one enters the cemetery.

The grounds are clean and beautiful. The grass, once uncut and uncared for, Is now green and even as a carpet and all the walks are carefully trimmed. I do not think that there is a national cemetery in the United States that is in better con dition and presents a more beautiful appearance at the present time, than this one at Santa Fe. Of course, there are larger ones, but for loveliness and real beauty, none surpass this little cemetery sacred to the soldier dead. It is the intention of Captain Van Nuyvenheim, if they can be secured, to plant 75 trees about the place, which will add greatly to the attractiveness. I have also heard it intimated a move ment will soon be inaugurated to en large the grounds, taking in the un improved land above the present ceme tery, and that the whole will be sur rounded by a stone wall. Eggs Up. Among the general shortages that are complained of in the world of eats. I notice eggs. The price of this al most necessary article of diet and of cooking is "coming up," and we do not know where we are going to land if the soaring keep on. Fresh eggs are going to a luxury and It looks like the cold storage proposition again. The wholesalers are saying that the hen Is not doing her duty. The poor hen has to take the brunt of it all and yet she has been a pretty steady friend to humanity from the time she was first known. It must be acknowledged that she Is not over loaded with brains and at times makes Anl nnA a nlllecinfO nf hprgplf AS a . when she runs so iranuca.iy oowu rnnd ahead of a vehicle, and wnen sne thP esrlv Ilie eany gets into the garden iu s pring and eats up all you have plant-, ed in that pet garden or yours, ana when she lets her consort sit on the fence and crow and crow in the early morning when he ought to be on his roost; but when we think of the thines the hen does and the joy she gives us what do these little foibles and Billy traits amount to? There Isn't anything better than the bake and the fry and the fricassee and the broil that she makes, and the eggs she lays are worth any man's coin, even when they do get up into the al titude, for there is nothing quite like the new laid egg for eating purposes or to stir into one of those joyous concoctions which the Missus knows so well how to put together. I do not see why more people do not go into the business of raising chickens, anyway. The demand for eggs Is eternal and never ceasing and there is always a claim of a shortage. Now. they say they are going to im port a great quantity of eggs from abroad so the demand must be greater than the supply, and we see the neces sity of having more of this bird with Booklet Free on Request 3- VALLEY us. However we may revile her at times and charge her with neglect of duty, we can not get along wunom uo j presence of Biddy, the hen. j Those Cures. Here is a new cure.

You only have to eat seven large boiled potatoes In a day and keep It up for eight days. At the noon lunch you eat five large spuds, boiled with the skins on and then you don't eat any more till 5 o'clock when you eat two more. You can not have any sugar, nor any coffee, and soup Is off the menu, but you can get away with all the fruit that the stomach will hold, and It must be fruit that is au natural. If I were the one to undertake this kind of lay out or have a big waist 1 would take the waist, but there are different points of view and there are many, I doubt not, who would eat ac cording to the above schedule rather than have redundancy at the waist line. Emmy Destinn is the one who of fers this way out of the terrors of big waists and being a singer and un- j derstanding the value of looking sty-1 lish and sylph-like, she would be the one to follow as she ought to be an au-1 thority on the question of the waist j line.

The play is a dramatic version of Francois Coppee's novel, "The Guilty Man," adapted to the special purposes of a cniBade which the Sociological Fund of The Medical Review of Re views has undertaken to forward. This crusade has two objects: the first, the introduction of a bill in the senate and assembly of the state of New York which shall authorize an unmarried mother of previous chaste character" to fix by judicial action the paternity of her child and by so doing confer upon it all the rights and priv ileges of legitimacy, Including the name of the father and the right to support by him; the second under takes to establish what Frederick H. Robinson, president of the association w' " rJ ""r'"" as me rigiii ui ihk uiuiuoi w vuwuoo whether or not and when she shall give birth to her child" and carries with it the legalization of prenatal In fanticide, now classed as a "criminal operation." In other words, it seeks to constitute the members of the med ical profession a privileged class, with the power of life and death over the nation. The extraordinary propaganda which the Sociological Fund of The Medical Review of Reviews has under taken has no part In the novel of "The Guilty Man." In the story, as Coppee . wrote it, me gin uoes uoi expect. man to marry her, and there is never ! a thought in her mind of prenatal In fanticide. She accepts the fact that she is to become a mother without protest, while In the play she is made to plead with a physician to destroy her child. "The Guilty Man" tells the story of !
