building on the continent, which has
been continuously occupied as a seat
of government since its erection. This
is the governor's palace, which bounds

that General Wallace occupied the
house in 1879-80, and in the great,
bling old ailobe structure there Is one
room called the "Ben-Hur" room. The
author was known to have written a
part of the book there, and when the
novel became famous former Governor
Bradford Prince, who has had a life
long interest in the historic features of
New Mexico, wrote to General Wallace
for confirmation of the fact. General
Wallace's reply, which has been pre
served in Santa Fe, said:

The force of the reference can be
derstood when one observes the thick
ness of the mighty adobe walls which
have lasted so many generations. It Is
a perfectly unpretentious building,
very long and only one story high. The
visitor is astounded at the spacious
ness of the interior. It has scores of
immense rooms, each warmed by the
quaint three cornered fireplace copied
from the Pueblo Indians, and fired,
like theirs, with the resinous pinon
boughs, which make the brightest and
most beautiful of flames
Vast loads of these pinon boughs go
perambulating about the streets of San
ta Fe, apparently without any motor
power. But If une looks closely he may
discover the legs und

the muss. And in making his bargain
with the bright eyed Indian boy who
accompanies it he will decide that the

Sermon
By Rev.
Frank De Witt Talmatfe. D. D.
Los Angeles, Cal., Dec. 31.—In this
sermon at the close of the old year
the preacher deals with the discontent
in the human heart, which often In
spires the wish that we might live life
over again. The text is Job ii, 4, "All
that a
life."
This question naturally arises on
this last Sunday of the year: "Would
we like to live our lives over again?

Some of us frankly admit that we

would like to live
again. Others just as frankly state
that they do not so desire. Benjamin
Franklin belonged to the first group.

f hus: "I should have

Benjamin Franklin would not have

possibilities Into account. I would

how he eats? Oh, no. Doctors can
prescribe all right for their patients.
But they are proverbial iconoclasts at

Their doctrine is, "Do not eat

ought to eat it. Then they will return
to their homes and have their meals
at irregular hours. The physician
would never let his dyspeptic patients
eat as he does. He knows what he
ought to do. but he does it not. Now,
if we hud to live our lives over again
in all probability we would do in refer

Fruits of Experience.
I force myself to this belief for a sec
ond reason. We had but little export
ai the past. But we did have
some experience and knowledge of sin.
We did not fall Into sin as a trap is

walked straight over the precipice of
sin with our eyes wide open. For
many years you were addicted to
drink. You have been In the past a

horrors of a drunkard's life. But tell
me about your first glass. Did you not
have just 'as much horror of liquor
then as you do now? Did you not lie
awake all night long, feeling that fiery
liquor burning its way down your
throat and Into your heart after your
first drink? Yet did that experience
lead you to forswear drink? Did you
not return to your tempter again and
again? You have been a desecrater of
the Sabbath day. You can see the aw
ful results of what a godless Sabbath
Is upon your present life. Why do you
not make Sunday a holy day? Did the

A Joyful lCndlnsr
Thus in closing this sermon on the
last Sunday of the year I do not feel
a sense of sadness such as I huve of
ten felt upon similar occasions in the
past. Whenever I have attended the
watch night meetings of previous New
Year's eves the ringing of the bell
when the clock struck 12 has always
sounded to me like the tolling of a
dirge. It has been to
knell. It bas been like the tolling of
the bell when the hearse enters the
cemetery. As the clock struck 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 0, 10, 11. 12, It seemed to
call: "Dead and gone! The years of
1900 aud 1901 and 1002 and 1903 and
1004 and 1005 are dead and gone!
They are dead and gone forever! Hear
It, ye living! Dead and gone forever!"
But as I hear the clock striking the
midnight hour tonight it will not be a
dirge, but a promise of reunion. It
will ring: "The year of 1905 is not
dead and gone forever. Thou sbalt
meet it with its sanctified joys and
sorrows. Thou shalt meet it again
smiling with the faces of those who
have made thy last twelve months
happy and blessed. Thou shalt meet
the year of 1005 coming forth to greet
thee, O Christian, with the sacred
years of 1890 and 1880 and 1870 by Its
side. All these years shall live again
if thou wilt put tby faith in Christ
and have him live in thee and thou in
him." My friends,

Queer Circular of Instructions Issued
Retail Druggists.
One may never have thought of the
screened portion of the druggist's shop
as a spider's web, with the druggist
lying there in wait for prey. But is
there not ground for a belief that when
he emerges from his place of mystery,
with face expressing dignified respect,
he Is studying his customer to deter
mine how heavily the latter can be
bled without knowing It—trying to de
cide if be is able to pay well and
whether he knows what the hiero
glyphics of the physician mean? These
are some of the thoughts that may be
running through the druggist's head as
he steps back Into his sanctum with j
the mysterious paper In his hand. The j
following, taken from the records of
the United States circuit court at Phil
adelphia in a case recently tried there,
would seem sufficient ground for this
belief:
"As an indication of the Interest tak

R. D. Notes," a leaflet issued by the
association. The cipher code, it
shown, works in this fashion: Each
letter represents the figure under which
it is placed. For instance, the charge
for a certain prescription is $1.35. The
druggist writes "Pam" under the first
line of the prescription. This sign,
like a tramp's mark on a gatepost, is
to Inform the next druggist visited

"I suffered with kidney and bladder trouble until life did not

was after I had used this medicine only a week. I did not expect that it
would help me permanently, but as long as it was doing me good I con

Tomsk, Siberia, is not such a dread
ful place. A traveler writes of it:
"After leaving the governor we paid a
visit to the shops of Tomsk in order
to complete our outfit. We were able
to buy apples newly arrived from the
Caucasus, tea from China—only 400
miles away and brought by a sledge or
droslcy by the overland trade routes
first opened by Peter the Great—and
many kinds of goods from Germany,
such a»» kodaks, photographic material
ami all kinds of up to date articles.
"We also paid a visit to a barber,
who could compare favorably with one
of the first class barbers in the west
end of London, and was quite dear,
charging us u shilling for a shave and
u hair cut. I was in every way very
favorably impressed by the town.
With a population of about 00,000, it
is as rieli in churches aud public build
ings as any Euglish or American town
with five times the number of inhab

"Moreover, the Tomsk university is
an Imposing building aud contains two
faculties—those of medicine and law.
This capital, in fact, takes the third
place in educational importance in the

French Care of Children.
I will uot go into such a vexed ques
tion os the French theory with regard
to the limitation of the population.
Suffice It here to say that it is ground
ed, whether right or wrong, on a great
and solemn sense of the responsibility
of parenthood.
No true, honest, honorable French
man or Frenchwoman thinks It Justi
fiable to bring children into the world
without having a fair certainty of
these children having their chance of a
happy and prosperous life.
For a Frenchman to leave a daugh
ter, brought up in comfort and even
luxury, without means and tho slave
of destiny, would be u crime which he
would regurd us ulmost the worst of
sins.
