By D WIG ires the message of provisional president de U Hnerta to the Mexican congress. The sections on International af fairs read very differently from corresponding pronounce ments of his various predecessors, and must give additional reassurance to all who look and hope for steady if gradual improvement in Mexican conditions. President de la Huerta rightly senses the importance of impressing the world with Mexico's good intentions. But he does not stop with that: he makes specific recommenda tions for bringing definite results. As to the oil controversy, he deals with it in general terms, and the oil men find little direct encouragement. But nobody can deny to Mexico the rght to regulate her industries and tb development of her rsources. The main thing is that Mexico will have to deal with justice and canity or theVorld powers will make it unpleasant for her. Mexico cannot afford to violate any pabhc contract made in good faith, or repudiate any title regularly given. This is a fundamental principle in dealings amoag nations as among persons. But H must be conceded to Mexico that she retains equal rights with other nations so far as dis- - I..- innuttic rcMirrcea is concerned, subject always to the ordinary rules of law and equity. Mexico s policies may be criticised, but if the new government is as .ntThnt and far seeing as it gives promise of being, it win not adopt a confiscatory or repressive policy toward ., as, am, wi-aaaaT'a1aV4J.

Tiriiole-heartedlv adopts ana earnestly follows this'poKcy, will aoon find that every other nation win do its part lowaia rawwu spirit of understanding and cooperation. ., With the exception of the seizure of a few Americans and British by a notorious bandit, there have been prac tically no recent instances of injury to the person of prop erty of a foreigner. Under some of de U Huerta's F sors t sometimes teemed as if aggression cgainst foreigners, .i a Kf ttu oavernment. was at least ignored. The provisional government has a dean record by comparison. cV t .nrr, strikea'and a few political disturbances, the country is quiet. It looks as if the election Sunday may be carried through in peace and good order, little preparation apparently has been made to force the election by military power. If Obregon be elected he wfll have the satisfaction of a sanction more genuine than any of his revolutionary predecessors received. The best wishes of the people of the United States go with Mexico whenever hat country chooses to follow the right road. President de la Hnerta alludes to the work of the com mission to frame a new banking law. Mexico's currency is ,. - v.a .v. vt fcr ttnUtm is not to be compared with that of the European continental countries or Japan, ana Mexico may be assured that American bankers wUl render ill possible assistance in bringing about a condition of stability. American interests in Mexico are so great that American financial backing wfll be ample in any new cur rency plan carrying promise of a wise and conservative re- 'President de la Hoerta suggests the advisability of adopting woman suffrage. This U in lino with the new practice of many other nations and is open to the same objections and favorable arguments as elsewhere. It must not be forgotten that a considerable proportion of the women of Mexico are exceedingly intelligent, well educated, and progressive in every way, and certainly tto uautasee m the work of public betterment should be TjluaMe. It has been remarked that Mexican girls are on the whole meit ambit'nns and faithful and reliable students than Mexican President de la Huerta touches on the land question In a way to indicate that he' is tree from the worst fallacies of Madero, Carrania, and many of their adherents. Obregon ,s commonly believed to be somewhat more radical, but certainly de la Huerta U far enough from being a social istic visionary. One gains from his utterances that he is r i TTn.rt has been in office only a short time, but in that time he has given to the outer world a good impression almost entirely unmixed with suspicion or hostility. He is , not very well known, and he has had neither time nor op portunity to show what kind of a president he would make if clothed with full authority and assured of a full term. But he has performed his part with refreshing good sense, ! he has made friends for Mexico and he has not excited in-. ternational hostilities. He is content to step down and out , at the appointed time, and has revealed none of the traits ) of the would-be military dictator such as Mexico has had a surfeit of in recent years. I The provisional president is a very young man,and he can afford to bide his time. It is the wisest thing he can do to retire, now for the time being, and put in the next i few years gaining experience of the world and studying , the business of statesmanship. In all human probability he will be nominated and elected president of the republic be-, fore he is many years older.

Elliott of the Southern Pacific traffic department has made some esti mates of crops produced in this section that show conditions to be better than they have been for years. Outside of El Paso county, about 21.500 acres of cotton tnbuted about as louows: .recos ouuni, w-, --i - -rzi-around Balmorhea and Saragosa, 7000; Barstow, 8000, Grandfalls, 3500. ..,. v , . It is estimated that the average yield will be a bale to the acre and that from cotton alone nearly 53,000,000 will ' be put into the pockets of the farmers and business men. i About 12,000 acres of alfalfa have also been sown in the same region and by the season's end the returns from this ( will be right at the three-quarter million mark. , Cattle ana suipnur are itoiibj iuc iuim -.. as oil. , .

Her growth was 42.7 percent or 2164 in number. . By way of comparison the Santa Fe Hew Mexican points out that Entland, Vt, and Martinsburg, West Va, towns in the same general census classifications, had much smaller increases with every reason to have greater. In the case of Rutland the increase was 10 percent and in the ease ot Martinsburg the increase was 17 percent. Santa Fe's people are regular folks, and make up in quality what they lack in quantity. There's a lag differ ence between coming to town because one is born there and coming because one electa to. Santa Fe is all the time at tracting people of the kind that do most to build a town.

Pretty clothes are almost always mors costly than homely ones, and pretty articles of furniture and decoration more ex pensive than cheap ones. But this is not an absolute rale, and the woman with good taste and a little ingenuity need not live with sgly clothes or an ngly home, no matter how poor she may be. One of the least expensive forms of beauty is flowers.

Or you can gather branches of the fragrant green pine which will give your rooms much the effect ot having flowers in them. And when the first cool weather turns the leaves, you can mak yonr house a bower of beanty merely by going forth and gathering the brilliant colored branches. ! If, If, "Mabel" and R. B.

While the planets seem to augur high attainment for women, there Is a sign read as Indicating that many men will seek to retard their prog ress, especially in political matters.

He put on the spectacles that Jollie handed him, and Squeakie Eekle. the cousin mouse, wondered why Jollie winked his eye at her. She knew a moment later, for Uncle Wiggily laughed and cried out.
