Nj:v Mknko suffered .1 slight chill the first of the week re. suiting from exposure to a passing Kansas blizzard. Scm.KY lias thin week captured the city of Chicago and there is certainlj no prospect of his hav ing to divide that honor with Sampson. ThkhK is still a demand in Socorro for cottages of four or live rooms. Ilealthseckcrs inquire for them almost every day. Has the law of supply and demand been suspended? Hr.AW snows are reported to be falling on the region drained by the head waters of the I-íio Grande. This means an abun dance of water for irrigation in the lower valley next spring and the land of siirishine is assured another prosperous vcar. Ik the opposing elements of the republican party of this terri tory would now devote to the at tainment of statehood the same amount of energy that they have recently directed to the circum venting of each other, (he words '.The State of New Mexico" would mighty soon stand for a glorious fact rather than for a broken promise. Thk Chieftain office is in almost daily receipt of circulars from a New York office advocat ing tariff concessions to Cuba. "Our duty to Cuba" is the chief argument advanced in behalf of these concessions, but for fear that some selfish, unphilanthropic citizen might give a thought to the beet sugar producers in our own country these same circulars cite unquestionable proof that the beet sugar industry under the present tariff schedule yields a profit of (( per cent per annum. These circulars arc without doubt issued in the interest of the sugar trust, an organization that is making frantic efforts to establish an absolute monopoly of the sugar business by ruining the beet sugar industry. Now comes (ener.il Whcaton with the statcmcntth.it it will be necessary to keep an army of live thousand men in the Philippines for several years before the natives of those islands arc pacified. It is doubtful whether even such a statement as that at this late day will abate the enthusiasm of those whose patriotism w as fired by the gloriou thought of raising the starfi'and stripes over the islands of the sea and shooting Christian ity and good government into their inhabitants on the points of dumdum bullets. Be that as it may, now that Uncle Sum has gotten himself into a tight box the only thing to do is to make his condition as comfortable as possible. Onk Doctor Pearson of the Northwestern University, a Meth odist institution located at Evanston, Illinois, a few days ago screwed his courage to the btick ing place and stated what he conceived to be the truth concern ing the miracles recounted in '.lie Hi Lie. Doctor Pearson's idea, '' that of H advanced theolog. ians, is that the miracles of the scriptures are mere myths, unobjectionable if taken simply as illustrations of moral truths, but Teryobjectionableif accepted in a literal sense. The day otuiartyrs, like that of miracles, is past, so that the Doctor is not likely to suffer any great hardship for his frankness. He may . lose his present position but there is a brisk demand for men of his stamp nowadays. It is too bad that the wisdom and beauty of scriptural teachings should so long have been deprived of their full force by persistent misinter pretation. Watch St. LouN.

Thk project for a north-and-south railway, connecting all the Americas, aud making it possible for 1 traveler to journey all the way from Canada to Patagonia by rail, was enthusiastically ap proved by the Pan-American Conference. It is not a new scheme, and of course something more than the resolutions of 1 conference will be required to put it on the way to realization. But the engineer ing diflicul ties are not insuperable; and the amount of new construc tion necessary to link existing railway systems into one con tinuous transcontinental line is estimated at only live thousand miles. If the amount of new mileage built in the United States during the year 1901 could have been distributed in the proper districts along the proposed line, the scheme would have been realized. Probably the proposed railway would cost less money and would be attended by fewer difficulties of , construction than the great railwa- which the tsar has been building across Siberia; . but behind the Siberian enterprise there was a resolute national purpose aud great resources. There must be powerful incentives before either governments or capitalists can be induced seri ously to undertake the, Pan American railway. Yet when the railway is built, as probably some time it will be, its material advantages and political conse quences may dwarf those of the tsar's great enterprise. It will bring the American people closer together, in sentiment as well as in time; it will promote the exchange of ideas as well as of products; and by quickening . travel, commerce and correspond ence it wiH break down old barriers and further the interests of peace. Youth's Companion. The Danish Islands Annexation. The treaty for the cession of the Danish islands in the West Indies to the United States which has just been signed in Washing ton finds this country in a widely different mood toward territorial expansion from that which it was in at the time the former annex ation scheme was at the front. When, in 18bS, the people of the islands declared, by an almost unanimous vote, in favor of annexation, and when the Danish Kigsdag ratified this course and the Danish king signed the ratification, a majority of, the Americans seemed to think the country had as much territory as it could conveniently use, and the treaty failed in the Senate. Alaska had just been annexed, and nothing farther in the wav of expansion wasdemcd advisable at that juncture. An imjwrtant change has come over the American people since then on this question. In 1898 the United States acquired Hawaii and the Spanish islands of Porto Rico and the Philip pines. The acquisition of Porto Kico and the Philippines came as a result of war. No American, even a month before the destruc tion of the Maine, looked for any territorial expansion which would take the flag to the other side of the Pacific. Having obtained the Philippines, however, there 3 a determination to keep them. and to utilize them for the benefit of their inhabitants and for the advancement of civilization. No more territory in their region is wanted. The country has extended far enough to the westward. But there will be no difficulty in getting the Senate to accept the Danish islands. One inore momentous difference is in the present situation from that which existed when this question was before the country a third of a century ago. Between the dominant party and the Pres ident of that time, Andrew Johnson, there was a violent feud, and even if there has been a popular desire to annex the islands the acquisition would have been postponed till Johnson left office. Johnson's secretary of state, William II. Seward, was disliked by the same party, too, and this circumstance aided in de feating the annexation project even after the new President came into office. President Grant was reported to have said; "This is a scheme of Seward's, and we can not afford to sanction it." No obstacles of either kind are in the way at present. In many respects which have a bearing on this particular question a widely different condition of things exists in the United States now from that which prevailed when this issue presented itself before. Globe-Democrat. Something That Will Do You (ood. We know of no way in which we can be of more service to our readers than to tell them of something that will be of real good to them. For this reason we want to acquaint them with what we consider one of the very best remedies on the market for coughs, colds, and that alarming complaint, croup. We refer to Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. We have used it with such good results in our family so long that it has become a household neces sity. By its prompt use we haven't any doubt but it has time and again prevented croup. The testimony is given upon our own experience, and we suggest that our readers, especially those who have small children, always keep it in their homes as a safe guard against croup. Camden (S. C.)

Out in Cincinnati there is an Irishman who, like many other good Irishmen, is firm in his loyality to his native land. One morning not long ago he was at work near the top of a teiepnone-poie, painting it a bright green, when the pot of paint slipped and splashed on the sidewalk. A few minutes later another Irishman came along. He looked at the paint, then at his country man on the ladder, coming down the pole, and inquired, with anxiety in his tone: "Doberty, Dohcrty, hov ye had a himorrhage?" Mr. Wheeler (Jot Kid of IIU lUieuiiiatlnm. "During the winter of 1898 was so lame in my joints, in fact all over my body, that I could hardly hobble around, when I bought a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. From the first appliea tion I began to get well, and was cured and have worked steadily all the year. R. Wheklkr, ioruiwoo(i, x. x. vol sal "Y A. E. Howell, Socorro.; V M.

This versatile and generally mild-tempered New Mexican wants the members of the house to stop straying on his preserves. If they don't stop, he has Homething in store asa means of retaliation that will sting. "Almost every day somebody introduces a bill about New Mex ico," said Mr. Rodey. "And just think of the gall these men display. They never say a word to me about it. I am never consulted. Why shouldn't I be consulted; I, the regularly elected delegate of the territory of New Mexico?" With this outburst Mr. Rodey softened a bit and pored over the pages of a printed bill he had just dug out of the morning's grist of measures sent back by the trovernment printing office. "Do you see that?" he queried, his anger rising again. Here's a bill to establish a preserve of 100,000 acres in New Mexico to be set apart for the preservation of the American bison. Ileuever said a word to me about it. No tice that the author of this line scheme is Mr. Curtis of Kansas. "I'll tell you what I'm going to do," continued Mr. Rodey, and a smile lighted up dis features as the idea took possession of him. I'm going to introduce a bill to set apart 100,000 acres in Curtis' district for the rearing and preservation of prairie dogs." A UOKTHY SUCCESSOR. ttSnnwHilnir w I'mliir Tim Vim'' All Doctors have tried to cure catarrh by the use of powders, acid gases, inhalers and drugs in paste form.

The prevalence of American wares in the British market has perhaps never been so con v in cingly set forth as in a recent squib in a Loudon newspaper. The Englishman's daily life is described. "He rises in the morning1 from his New England sheets, shaves with American soap and a Yankee safety razor, pulls on his Boston boots over his socks from North Carolina, fastens his Connecticut braces, slips his Waltham watch into his pocket and sits down to breakfast. He eats bread from prairie flour, tinned oysters from Baltimore and a little Kansas City bacon, while his wife toys with Chicago ox-tongue and the children eat American oats. At the same time he reads his morn ing' paper printed by American machines on American paper with American ink, and possibly edited by a smart journalist from New York. "At his office he sits on a Nebraska swivelchair before a Michigan roll-top desk, writes his letters on a Syracuse type writer, signs them with a New York fountain pen, and dries them with a blotting sheet from New England. The letter copies arcptu away in filcsmanufactured in Oni'jd Rapids. He winds up V; 2 day with a couple of pills made in America." A. E. Howell, Socorro, and W. M.
