The local Chlne-sc contingent Is mak ing preparations for celebrating the i"hlne-se New Year, which falls next Sunday, January '29. A great many Invitations to outside Chinamen have been Issued by the leading Chinese of the city. There, will ibe "something doln'" In the "Joy" line, as the China men will vie with each other In mak ing things enjoyable. The hospitality of the Chinese dur ing their New Year's season has be come proverbial. In Kan Francisco's Chinese charters the Celestials go the limli and, besides free and lavishly Kpread banquet boards, they endeavor to Kend the lid sky high with a cease less and costly explosion of fireworks. Along Molt street in New York much the same custom prevails, only It Is not o widely distributed. In Texas down along "the river" about te n years ago there were two Chinamen In a population of about 700 people, 200 of which were "greas ers." One "Chink" conducted a res taurant and fed wayward eowpunch ers, while the other washed and darn ed their nocks. Trade at the one was ue-vcr what could bo called brisk, while at the other It was simply "rotten." In spite of this, though, both tho almond-eye wei shippers of Confucious managed to eke out a living and each helped to prolong his life by cultivat ing a dexterity in dodging bul let' I luyfully aimed at their feet. Whatever turn the various persecu tions had taken against them, though, all were annually forgotten and for given as the Chinese calendar ibLjgan squaring Itself away for a new start and lioth queues-cultivating would-be voters united In dispensing true Chi nese hospitality. Principally Ham and Eggs. Tlie maikcts In that locality never were known to be glutted with beef, no more than a cow-ranch Is over burdened with frevm milk, so they had to conlluc themselves mostly to ham and eggs. There was never any choice on the part of the cow-iamc hers, though, as long as tho hosts didn't ring In beans on them, and Just at du.k when the soft patter of the felt shod feet were heard outside the door of the Buckhorn saloon there was a genual scraping of chairs, straight ening of limbs and loosening of bell and "chap" buckles. I'pon the Invitation being extended, there would te a pelltmell rush to the restaurant next door from then on till mldnUht, and often longer there would be Homo high old times within Its four walls. The way these range-riding punchers would tie Into that great ard varied assortment of hnm and Kgs, French fried potatoes, "light" bread, f.Hp-Jacks and coii'ee was something to warm the heart of an Idol Itself, let alone the idol' wor.-hlp-e r, while the two hosts wore smiles tint refused to come off and which seemed to dispense chce-rlnesa and amiability as freely as the Nearer dis pensed example's of the cooking art. The cow jrunchers would there Ire m miles around and all former en mities and hostilities would be bur led for the time being. They gorged themselves until they could hold no more, nent for a eemple of barrels of heer, got tho Chinamen drunk, and then tried to blow the town up. Next day they would ride away Into the dis tant rim of the horizon and remain there a month or more. Beturning, the hatchet would again be taken up, and from then on till the next New Year the Chinamen would be kept busy wondering how they managed to re main on earth so long. MOHAWK NEWS NOTES.
