One of Socorro County's Most Highly Kcspceted Citizens Países Anny After a Brief Illness. Word was brought to Socorro early Tuesday morning that Kamon Montoya was dead at his home in San Antonio. The an nouncement did not come alto gether as a surprise. for it was known that Mr. Montoya had been dangerously ill for two or three days; nevertheless, when it was known that death had claim ed its own, expressions of sorrow were heard on every side. The sincerity of those expressions was unmistakable. It was such as constitutes the highest tribute to the dead. As a man and as a citizen Mr. Montoya was one whom any community can ill afford to lose. He was respected and esteemed and he cheerfully assumed his share of the public burden. The funeral Wednesday in honor of the departed was doubt less one of the most largely at tended that has ever occurred in the county. Hundreds of rela tives, friends, and business ac quaintances gathered from far and near to pay the tribute of their presence and sorrow. Forty or more citizens of Socorro were in attendance. San Miguel band furnished music for the sad oc casion. The pall bearers wore Messrs. H. M. Dougherty, J. P. Chase, A. D. Coon, José E. Tor res, Julian Savedra, Benj. San chez. Luciano Chavez, David Chavez, Pedro Tafoya. E. Reed, A. H. Hilton, and J. J. Leeson. At the Catholic church solemn high mass was celebrated for the repose of the soul of the depart ed.

Socorro's lovers of the national game had a rare treat Sunday. The nine that is to represent the city in the games against the Santa Fe champions had been selected from the two local teams. The game was a close one be tween these "elects" and the "scrubs," so close in fact that for a time it seemed that the two nines would best exchange titles. The final score, however, was IS to 14 in favor of the "elects." This nine, which is to represent the School of Mines under the management of Prof. F. A. Jones, is as follows: Pitchers, Chavez and Wilson; catcher, Martinez; 1st base, Emilio Baca; 2nd base, Zingerly; 3rd base, Smith; short, llaynes Howell; right field, Abcrnathy; center field, Wilson and Chavez; left field, Gibbons. This team may Eossiblv not succeed in beating Ir. Martin's champions, but it is perfectly safe to predict that when the two teams meet there will be a hot time in old town. General MacArthur says that the Philippinos are not yet capa ble of self-government and that therefore the United States must retain the islands as a "tuition- ary annex." Cadet Francis S. Whitten of Mew Mexico was awarded a gold medal Thursday at the naval academy at Annapolis for being the champion fencer and small swordsman. There is a hitch in the cession of the Danish West Indies.

Gallegos had Sanchez to work on his ranch and paid him in ad Sanchez blew in the and acquired a beautiful jag which prevented him fulfilling his part of the tract. New Mexican. E. V hired sheep vanee, money from con- Speclal ICutcs. The Santa Fe has made a spe cial rate for baseball teams in New Mexico for the summer sep.son. The rate will be one and one-fourth fare for distances of 100 miles or less, over 100 miles one fare for the round trip. These rates will be open to the public, providing passengers go and return with the baseball team and on the same ticket. New Mixicar. How Cheap Kiikliiif Powder In Made. The Health Department of New York has seized a quantity of so called cheap baking powder, which it found in that city. At tention was attracted to it by the low price at which it was being sold in the department stores. Samples were taken and the che mist of the Health Department reported the stuff to be "an alum powder," which analysis showed to be composed chiefly of alum and pulverized rock. The powder was declared to be dangerous to health, and several thousand pounds were carted to the olTul dock and destroyed. It is unsafe to experiment with these so-called "cheap" articles of food. They are sure to be it.ade from alum, rock, or other injuri ous matter. In baking powders, the. high class, cream of tartar brands are the most economical, because they go farther in use and are healthful beyond queston. "When," says a Western Kans as paper, "a country editor sets all the type, makes úp the forms, runs the press and serves as his own mailing clerk, he hasn't much time for society." This recalls Gene Field's monologue on the printer. "A printer" said Fi'-ld, "has a mighty hard time of it. He has to set type all night and plav pedro for the beer all day. If it wasn't for the night work I'd like to be a printer. Episcopal Services.
