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.
