Appropriate Decorations for Crystal Wedding Vegetable Jelly Salad Is Something New Putting up Quince Preserves For Winter. At a recent cryBtal wedding, glass of all kinds was used In decorating the dining room. Many mirrors re placed the pictures on the walls, and jthese were festooned with smilax. Cut-glasB vases and bowls were placed about the room, filled with white chrysanthemums. The candlesticks on (.he mantel were of glass, and con tained white candles. In the center of the table was a large cut-glass bowl filled with white chrysanthemums, testing on a circular mirror wreathed in ferns. Glass candlesticks were placed at each corner. All the dishes, as far as possible, were of cut-glass, .which gave a brilliant effect. The souvenirs were glass slippers filled with email after-dinner mints. The following simple supper was served: 1 Oyster Cocktail, ('ream of Tomato Soup, Bread Sticks, Pried Chicken, Currant Jelly, French Peas, Potato Balls, Brown Bread, Salted Nuts, Apple and Nut Salad, Orange Sorbet, Fancy Cakes, Candled Ginger, Coffee. For vegetable jelly salad, use one ;half box of gelatine, three-fourths of a cup of cold water, one pint of boil ing water, one-half cup of sugar, one half cup of lemon juice, three toma toes, two bunches of water cress, may onnaise dressing. Soak the gelatine in cold water.- Cut the lemon rind thin, and cook it in the water five minutes, then add the soaked gelatine, sugar, and lemon juice. Strain it into a pitcher. Wet the mold in cold water, and pack it In ice. Put in a layer of jelly, when hard, a layer of tomatoes sliced, and a little water cress. Repeat this process till the mould 1b full. Garnish with cresses, and serve with mayonnaise dressing. Most unattractive of fruit trees as to foliage and requiring little or no attention to Insure good bearing, the quince, according to Vogue, is one of the most economical and delicious of the autumn fruits for winter storage. As its full maturity comes late, it is advisable to pluck the quinces when ,they have reached a good size, but have not yet assumed the golden color, and accelerate the ripening pro cesa on a closet shelf. In this way, only a few need be preserved at a time, or as soon as they are mellow enough to pare easily. The loss from rotting will not be worth mentioning. Every part of the quince is availa ble In preserving; the eights when pared being used for marmalade, pre serves and conserves, and the parings and cores being retained for jelly; although some experienced cooks will advise that the cores be discarded altogether, these being so gelatinous that they make a sticky jelly, lacking In solidity and sparkle. Others, again, Insist that the cores add consistency and flavor. The thrifty housekeeper always ar ranges to make her quincepreserves, jelly and marmalade at the same time. Canning Pumpkin. Peel and cut the pumpkin into small cubes. Cover with water and cook until tender no longer. Fill the jar with these cubes, being very particular to fill the space around them with the water In which the pumpkin is cook ed. When the jar is nearly full add four grains- of benzoic acid. Fill the jar to overflowing and close as usual, being very careful that all rubbers, covers, etc., are perfectly sterile. The benzoic acid may be purchased for very little of any druggist Have him weigh out four grains for you and wrap in a separate paper, then anyone can guess at the quantity by looking üt this. ; Spiced Cranberries. Boil together three and one-half pounds of brown sugar, two cupfuls of vinegar, two tablespoonfuls each of ground allspice and cinnamon, and one tablespoonful of ground cloves. To this sirup add five pounds of cran berries, and simmer slowly for two hoars. Keep In , a stone jar, closely covered. Woman's Tongue the Smaller. In a man and woman of equal weight the woman's tongue Is smaller than tha man's. HEAVY INHERITANCE TAX Advocated by Andrew Carnegie In New York Speech, New York. Andrew Carnegie, In an iddress before the National Civic Fed eration Thursday said that he believed the major portion of the estates of enormously wealthy men should go to tne state upon the death of the pos sessor of the fortune. Mr, Carnegie opposed a graduated Income tax. Melville E. Ingalls of Cincinnati addressed himself to the subject of an income and inheritance tax, especially with a view to limiting the large accu mulations of wealth in the possession of individuals. He said that there had been in the last few years three pro lific sources of multi-millionaires which are open to criticism. These, he said, were the tariff, illegal favors and contracts given to the shippers by the railways, and the securing by means which were questionable, of contracts at nominal prices for the use of the streets of various cities for the pur pose of transportation and lighting. He said that illegal favors had been In many cases wrung from the railways by the shippers and said that this form of evil had been used In combination with the tariff. William D. Guthrie, a lawyer, who led the fight in the local courts against an income tax, on constitutional grounds, held that there must, under American institutions, be equality of taxation. Andrew Carnegie, who followed, said that he was in hearty accord with Mr. Guthrie. "I think an income tax would pene trate business to the core," said Mr, Carnegie. "I think this country would never regret anything so much as to Impose such a tax. I differ with the President strongly on the subject of the Income tax. But I am in a pe culiar position on the inheritance tax, advocating that as something like get ting a better distribution of wealth. "The subject of wealth distribution will not down." Mr. Carnegie said he believed, inas much as the wealth properly belonged to the community, the latter, on the death of the possessor, should acquire a great portion of the wealth, having had a large portion to do with Its de velopment. "Our country fails In its duty," said Mr. Carnegie, "if it does not exact a hare, a tremendous share, of the es tate of the enormously wealthy upon his death. The money belongs to the community. Do not mistake me. I do not advocate the making of a man a pauper, or the pauperizing of his chil dren, but it is not the millionaire who made the wealth. He did not make the ore, or the coal or the gold that he dug from the ground. The Montana cop per mine owner did not make his wealth. It belongs in the abstract to the people who use it and who produce the use which makes it valuable. "I am with the President, then, to tax heavily by graduated taxation ev ery man who dies leaving behind him his millions, for I think that excessive wealth left to a child is an injury." DUBOIS ON SMOOT. Censures President for Assisting Mor mon Republicans. Wftshlne'tnn. The Senate Thursday listened to the second speech which has been made this session against tne continuance of Reed Smoot as sena tor from Utah. It was delivered by Senator Dubois of Idaho, who after re viewing in detail the workings of the Mormon Church and Mr. Root's promi nent connection therewith, concluded with the charge that President Koose velt used the weight of his administra tion to assist the Mormon-Republican vote in the last election. Mr Dubois asserted the control of the church to be complete In the hier archy, consisting of the presidency and the twelve apostles, of wnicn Mr. Smoot. was one. This control, he main tained, was ecclesiastical, political and commercial, and was exercised com pletely over followers who come prin cipally from foreign countries. The constant tendency, he said, was to make the church and state one, with the control in the church. Aa to Senator Smoot. he said, It made no difference whether he was or was not a polygamlst The senator was a pillar In the church and In con trol of its temporal, spiritual and po litical policies, and was selected for the Senate because or nis posmon. "Smoot," he said, "represents the church and not the state and would do the bidding of the church before he would serve the real Interests of the tuto or of the nation. By being an apostle of the chuch, Smoot Is a mem ber of this hign conspiracy, tie is one of the chief conspirators, and by his acquiescence supports tne pians ana alms of the conspiracy." The breaking down of the Influence of the church In politics, Mr. Dubois asserted, would do more than anything else to put a stop to polygamy. King of Sweden III. Stockholm. Considerable alarm was occasioned Thursday by a statement that King Oscar Is seriously ill; thai all the royal family had assembled at the palace, and that the crown prince, Gustavus Adolphus, had been sum moned hurriedly from Berlin. It ap pears that King Oscar has been ail ing for some days. His indisposition was not regarded as serious until Wednesday, when he developed symp toms of heart failure. His heart had been affected for three years, and In the fear that because of his great age the present attack might prove fatal, four doctors have been In attendance. SUGAR beet payments. Large Sums Disbursed by Greeley, Ea ton and Windsor Factories. Greeley. Saturday payment for the November deliveries of beets was made by the Greeley, Eaton and Wind sor sugar factories. The Greeley fac tory paid $210,000; Eaton, $215, 000; Windsor, $179,000; total, $604,- U00. The monthly payroll for workmen at the three factories is $76,000, and the expenses $G0,000 which, added to the foregoing, makes a total of $739,000 put Into cir culation by the three factories during the last few days. The September de livery of beets brought $185,000, and October $311,000, which, with the monthly payroll and expenses of the three factories, has made the three dis tricts richer by $1,500,000. It is quite probable that the December delivery will equal that of November, and it will be February 1st before all beets are de llvered, which will prolong the sugar campaign Into March. All beets are dug in northern Colorado and there is a good prospect that practically all will be used by the factories without loss to the farmers from freezing or thawing. The Beet Growers' Association of the Greeley district met Saturday, with 250 present, to consider making con tracts for growing beets for sugar fac torles next season. They united to a man against siloing beets in the field at $5.50 a ton, as offered by the sugar company, as they claim the extra 50 cents does not pay for the shrinkage in siloed beets, to say nothing of the extra expense of labor. The farmers believe that If the factories wish to have the beets siloed the work should be done by the factories. The growers also object to the clause in the present contract which requires a grower to wait until Octo ber 20th to deliver unless ordered ear Her, and desire the privilege of deliv ering beets by October 15th. A com mittee was appointed to draft a con tract embodying the desires of the growers and submit it to the sugar company. Henry C. Watson resigned as pres ldent of the association and Charles Mason was elected in his place. MEXICO BUYS RAILROADS. Partial Government Ownership to Be Established. City of Mexico. Dec. 14 The details of the railway merger, in which th; Mexican government takes control oi all the important lines in the republic, are not known. By the terms of the contract the gov ernment secures absolute control ol the Mexican Central, the National, the International, the Inter Oceanic ana the Hidalgo & Northeastern, all ol which will be merged into one great railroad system. The government also comes into control of the Texas-Mexi can, a railroad at Laredo, Texas, which is owned by the National. , The mile age of the system, will, with exten sions, which are rapidly nearing com pletion, aggregate approximately 10,- 000 miles. The Tehuantepec National and Vera Cruz & Pacific, two other roads con trolled by the government, will con tinue to be operated as Independent companies. A Mexican company, of which a ma jority of the stock will be held by the Mexican government will be organized with headquarters in this city. The company will issue its securities In ex change for the securities outstand ing of the two companies, and the new company will acquire all the phys ical property and concessions held by the old companies. It is contemplated to create a board of twenty-one direc tors, to be divided into a general board, which will reside in Mexico, and a lo cal board with headquarters in New Vork. The board in Mexico will con sist of twelve members and the New York board of nine. DESPERATE FROM COLD. North Dakota and Minnesota Want Mi litia Called Out. Minneapolis. With the cold wave signal flying, the coal shortage In the Northwest becomes not only a cause of severe suffering, but an absolute menace to human life. This is the second chapter in the his tory of the railroads' failure to handle the 1906 traffic In the territory tribu tary to Minneapolis. The Glenburn, North Dakota, Com- cercial Club will appeal to the gov ernors of North Dakota and Minnesota to employ state miliary forces In mov ing coal trains. Farmers are burning their outbuildings for fuel. Glenburn has invited people from its Its territory who will be without fuel to come and camp in the village school. Eveleth, Minnesota, faces darkness and suffering through deprivation of coal, and apprehensive reports have come from numerous other places. Fort Collins and Laramie Line. Fort Collins.

A Santa Fe dispatch December 12th says: Tne annual nesta oi uuaaaiupe Is being celebrated throughout New Mexico. At Santa Fe high mass was celebrated at Guadalupe church and Rev. A. Jouvenceau of Bernalillo preached the festival sermon. Bon fires are blazing in front of almost every Catholic home and fireworks light up the evening sky. Crazed by drink, Charles Johnson, a Swede, went Into the toilet room of a coach on a Santa Fe train and fired a bullet into his brain. He was brought to Albuquerque and died in the hospi tal. He was a member of the Chicago Truck Drivers' union No. 705, and also the American Federation of Labor. He had relatives and friends in Chicago who have been notified of his death, Virgil Harris, accused of shooting Joe Padilla, and John Belknap, ac cused as accessory, were acquitted at Albuquerque at a preliminary hearing. While the testimony was sensational, nothing was adduced to show that Harris attempted to assassinate Pa dilla, although the latter was shot in the lee or that Belknap was an acces sory. The shooting of Padilla remains a mystery. r.alliin'R citv administration is now without an official bead, says a recent dispatch. E. M. Sanjule has resigned as mayor, to which position he was elected at the recent city election which nreciDitated auo warranto pro ceedings which are now pending In the District Court at Albuquerque, mr.

Baker of Mineral Hill, and a puplr at the Castle school here, is suffering from a broken leg and other Injuries as the result of a football game between the young students at the school, says a La Vegas dispatch. He was the un fortunate spectator in the case. A crowd of schoolmates In mass forma tion rushed around the corner or a building. Before the boy could escape he was knocked down and the whole crowd fell upon him In a heap. Hlu leg was forced bank under him and broken. When the boys began to re gain their feet they soon found their playmate was badly injured and called grocery wagon in wnnn ne was carted home. Besides a broken leg the youth has Internal Injuries which, how ever, are not thought to be serious NEWS SUMMARY NEW MEXICO'S MINERAL OUTPUT It Is estimated that the mineral production of New Mexico during the present year exceeds $6,000,000. From actual reports of last year's produc tion, the following estimates have been made: Coal, 2,000,000 tons valued at $3,000,000; 135,000 tons of iron ore valued at over $500,000; 20,000 fine ounces of gold valued at $400,000; 400,000 fine ounces of silver valued at $25,000; 7,000,000 pounds of copper valued at $1,350,000; 6,000,000 pounds of lead valued at $300,000; 10,000,000 pounds of vine valued at $500,000. The above figures do not include the pro duction of stone for building 'and bal lasting purposes, of cement, of lime, of turquoise. The cement industry, especially, is gaining a strong foothold in New Mexico and promises to rank soon next to coal in the value of its production. Nevertheless, New Mexi co can hardly be called a mining com monwealth for the value of Its agri cultural products is four times that of the mines, and even its stock indus try yields greater returns than mining. Santa Fe New Mexican. Great Engine Smashed. Because its governor stopped, a 150 horse power engine owend by the Albu querque Gas, Electric Light and Power Company ran away with itself at the power plant at the hmiber mills at Al buquerque on the 14th inst., and was broken to pieces. The engine was employed in pulling two generators which furnished elec tricity for the Albuquerque Traction Company, and as a result of the acci dent, Albuquerque is without street car service. The report of the break sounded like a great explosion, which was heard all over the city, though the plant is a mile north of the city limits. Darkness in the city followed the ex plosion, the other electrical engines at the plant used to furnish light being slightly damaged by fragments of the broken engine. Fly wheels six feet in diameter and weighing 3,500 pounds each were broken into pieces, no one of which would weigh more than fifty pounds. Spokes of wheels several inches in thickness and of cast iron were stripped from hubs as though they were tooth picks. One piece probably ' weighing fifty pounds, knocked a hole in the top of the engine room fifty feet above the dismantled engine. Another struck the steel frame of the building forty feet above, bending it as though it were a mere latticework of wood. The cylinder and guide of the engine, one solid piece weighing probably 8,000 pounds, was wrenched from Its moor ings (3n the foundation of cement and steel and hurled ten feet into the pit of the engine room. Bolts which held this piece were snapped square off. Belts were torn into shreds. Engineer Hicks, who was employd in another part of the building at the time, escaped uninjured. The Sacramento Telephone Com pany has filed incorporation papers at Santa Fe, capital $10,000 and headquar ters at Alamogordo. Government Sheep Dipping. j dmrge tfae Qf ,n New 'PL .1 1 til .. 1 . Mexico during the coming season, ac cording to the statement of some mem bers of the Sheep Sanitary Board, which was in annual session here Sat urday, says an Albuquerque dispatch. The discussion of the sheep industry lasted for several hours and was thor ough. It was asserted that the loss of sheep during the recent blizzard was slight, although goats, particularly Angoras, suffered heavily. It is practically certain that the gov ernment will detail inspectors to lake charge of the dipping of sheep during the coming Beason, although no prom ise to that effect has been made. The Territorial Sheep Sanitary Board is to supply the Inspectors to see that the sheep are brought to the dipping places. The government will bring ex perienced inspectors from Utah, Wyo ming, Idaho, and other places to in spect the dipping. It will require about 125 men, who will be paid from $100 to $75 a month. The New Mexico board has from twenty-five to thirty men in the field each season, and when the force Is enlarged to 125 men the in spection will be very thorough. The sheep are free from scab to a great ex tent and prices continue good, accord ing to members of the sanitary board. Indians Saw the President. A Santa Fe dispatch of tho 8th inst. says: Gov. J. Romero, War Chief Yep pa and Jesus Baca of Jemez Pueblo, returned to-day from Washington, where they had been to see President Roosevelt to present their grievances and ask that the lands taken up by settlers round about them be restored to them and that an order Issued to ex clude all white men from their dances and festivities. The President, after an interview that pleased the red skins greatly, re ferred them to the bureau of Indian affairs with their grievances. When they left for Washington Gov. Romero carried the money for their expenses in a satchel that looked fat and well filled. Upon their return it was lean and the governor remarked: "Lots of money when we go, no money when we come home. Costs heap to see so much. Had fine time. President him great man and good to Indians. Now we go home. Indians very tired." Thoy left for Jemez to-night.
