THE RECORD, KENNA, NEW MEXICO.
REBUKE THAT WAS DESERVED loted Author' Cutting Answer War the Case, ranted by the Exigencies of Amelia E. Barr, In her autobiog raphy, tells of her experience in look ing for a "church home" In the big city. She enjoyed a sermon by a fa mous preacher and wrote to ask about joining hts congregation. An officer of the church called. After the polite preliminaries he said: "Doctor C. would like to know the name of your banker." "My banker," she replied In amazement. "I have no banker." "You see," he continued, "ours is a very extravagant church I mean In good works and our members must be looked to for large subscriptions. Doctor C. is acquainted with your name, and thinks highly of you, but he is afraid you would not be able fa give as as liberally as our church expenses demanded." Mrs. Barr looked at him silently while he floundered in explanations. Finally she said: "You bad better make no more explana tions, sir. I understand that only the rich can be members of Doctor C.'s church. The Lord Christ also Is there fore ineligible. I will remain outside with him." San Francisco Argonaut. Fanaticism and Progress. Without fanaticism of a certain sort, progress would be impossible. The minds of men and women must be tircharged with love of a cause, or atred of a wrong, else they will not lit their all into the fighting. The very origin of the word "fanatic" connotes absorption in a single idea, for the word is derived from the Latin "fanum" (a temple) and the "fanatl cus" was supposed to be maddened by the divinity whose fane he frequented. And it is quite certain that now, sb of old, the motive power of every great propaganda Is essentially religious, even though the leaders call them selves agnostics or atheists. No abso lutely selfish or absolutely skeptical person, can lead either the masses or the classes. At the core of the true leader's being there must be an idea to which he clings and to which he will sacrifice all else with a light heart Parnell was cold, but he loved Ireland with an all-consuming passion; Wil liam III. was cold, but he loved Hol land with a devotion that knew no bounds. New Orleans Times-Democrat Bad, but All Well. The saying "the good funeral of the bad woman," may be apocryphal, but It is attributed to the duke of Buck ingham, not otherwise noted for the exercise of functions proper to the clergy. In the wicked London of the restoration an evil woman named Crestwell ordered the payment of 10 for a funeral sermon in which no ill should be spoken of her. Bucking ham's sermon was: "All I shall say of her Is this, she was born well, she married well, lived well and died well; for she was born In Shadwell, married in Creswell, lived at Clerk enwell and died at Bridewell." Considerably Removed. "Rather nifty looking dairy maid In this musical comedy." "Yes, but 1 dare say the nearest they ever got to a dairy waa a dairy lunch." The First Question. Wlggs Young Sllllcu says his heart is lacerated. ' Waggs Who's the lass? GROWING 8TRONQER Apparently, with Advancing Age. "At the age of 60 years I collapsed from excessive coffee drinking," writes a man In Mo. "For four years I sham bled about with the aid of crutches or rane, most of the time unable to dress myself without help. "My feet were greatly swollen, my right arm was shrunken and twisted inward, the fingers of my right hand were clenched and could not be ex tended except with great effort and pain. Nothing seemed to give me more han temporary relief. "Now, during all this time and for about 30 years previously, I drank dally an average of 6 cups of strong coffee rarely missing a meal. "My wife at last took my case Into her own hands and bought some iPostum. She made It according to di rections and I liked It fully as well as the best high-grade coffee. "Improvement set In at once. In abont 6 months I began to work a lit tle, and In less than a year I waa very much better. Improving rapidly from day to day. I am now In far better health than most men of my years and apparently growing stronger with advancing age.

MB, LIND IS NOT REASSURED Constitutionalists Seem to Be Gaining Converts Rapidly Many Rumors of Plots Against the Huerta Administration. Vera Cruz. The passage through this port under the eyes of the au thorities of men of prominence whose intention presumably it is to join the rebels, the Increased activity of the rebels in southern Vera Cruz and Capeche, the discovery of plots in Vera Cruz and rumors of plots undis covered, together with new dissen sions in President Huerta's cabinet, which have resulted in resignations, are developments in the Mexican situation which have not reassured John Llnd, President Wilson's per sonal representative, that there has been improvement in the general sit uation. Mr. Lind had two long conversa tions with men who are supposed to be well informed, but their informa tion was of the usual pessimistic character. On board the Ward line steamer Mexico, which sailed for Tampico, Ha vana and New York, was the consti tutional governor of the state of Hi dalgo, Pedro Rosales. Senor Rosales has been summoned to the City of Mexico and told to ask for leave of absence In order that he might be succeeded by a military governor. He said he explained to President Huerta that he had been elected to office legally, and asked time to think over the proposition made to him. He is one of the richest men in his state. Forty Americans in the state of Ta basco have been forced by rebels into the town of Frontera and have ap pealed for a ship to take them away. The rebels are reported to have cap tured towns a short distance from Frontera to a considerable distance into the interior of the state. With the exception of eight or ten, the Americans in Frontera are refugees from plantations, which are overrun with rebels. Official dispatches from Tampico say that 300 Americans in that dis trict have left as a result of the warn ing of President Wilson. The exodus through Vera Cruz is diminishing. "Americans Insulted There." El Paso, Tex. "An American can not walk along the streets of the City of Mexico without being Insulted by natives," said James L. Black, a mme owner in the ptate of Caxaca, who Just arrived here. "They push Amer icans Into the street and when pro test is made they laugh at them and oftentimes spit in their faces. It is unsafe for an American woman to go on the streets even with an escort without fear of Insults from the Mex icans. ANOTHER GAS CONFERENCE State Utilities Commissions of Mis souri and Kansas to Meet in Kansas City. Topeka. The Kansas and Missouri public utilities commissions will have a conference with the mayors of the cities of the two states which use natural gas supplied by the Kansas Natural Gas Company In Kansas City, late this month. John M. Atkinson, chairman of the Missouri commission, has sent a letter to the Kansas commisison asking for a conference which may lead to Joint action by the commissions of the two stntes and the cities using gas toward getting an adequate supply of natural gas for use this winter. Mr. Atkin son said that his commission had just been notified that there could be no hope of an adequate supply of gas if gas were used in the Missouri cities tor heating purposes and that there might be a sufficient supply for cook ing and lighting alone.

Colebrook, N. H.-Although still un der guard here, Harry K. Thaw Is be lieved now to be nearer complete le gal freedom than ever before since he shot Stanford White. His case finally has got into the federal 'courts and the way now Is paved to have the supreme court of the United States pass on his case If necessary. The fourteenth amendment enabled the Thaw attorneys to go Into the federal court and get a writ of habeas corpus, returnable Tuesday before Judge Aldrlch. William Travers Jerome, specially deputized to bring the fugitive back to the asylum, heard the news with ill grace and characterized the move as one of bad faith. There had been a gentleman's agreement, he said, that neither side was to make a court move pending the extradition hearing before Governor Felker In Concord. "Should this federal writ be grant ed, it will mean that Thaw Is a free man in any state in the Union." NEW YORK MYSTERY SOLVED Rector of a Catholic Church Confessed to Murdering His Servant and Cutting Up Body. New York, N. Y. With the arrest here of the Rev.

SUBMARINES AT WORK FORECAST OF NAVAL WAR IN THE COMING YEAR8. New Types of Destroyers, When Cer tain Engines Are Developed, Will Possess Powers of Hideous Destructiveness. The destroyer Is doomed shortly to disappear, or. If you like, she will In future be Invested with the power to dive. The types, at any rate, will be amalgamated. It is a matter of per fecting the Internal-combustion engine for marine purposes. Afterward the submarine may attain the power of flying as well, and we shall have a ship possessing all the qualities of the wild duck, except that of sitting on eggs and reproducing herself. This forecast is made by Gerard Flennes, who writes of the work of the subma rine in the Pall Mall Magazine: "It 1b the darkest hour, the hour be fore the dawn. The hostile fleet lies in its harbor, behind the boom and under the shelter of the forts. It has suffered damage In an encounter with a superior force, but Is still 'in being.' The beams of the searchlights wheel and cress and seesaw up and down; the guarding destroyers prowl hither in the outer harbor. Of a sudden there Is a rush from seaward of black hulls and flaming funnels. No con cealment is attempted; it would be useless. The attackers creep, unper celved, near enough to make their rush. In an Instant the scene Is ablaze with quick-firing guns, hurling shell on friend and foe alike. The assail ants hold on. One boat after another sinks, but ever fresh squadrons rush In to the attack. A dozen, 20, 30 boats will be well lost If the attempt suc ceeds. "The boom which protects the har bor mouth is made of huge baulks of timber, wound and wound, with stout steel hawsers. From Its low edge hang torpedo nets. It would be vain to charge It as the Polyphemus years ago charged the boom at Portsmouth fox an experiment, and got over, jilt must be blown up. A rending crash, followed by another, proclaims the failure of the trusted defense. 'The boom Is In splinters; the destroyers -which wrecked it actually make their way to safety amid the - smoke and confusion caused by the explosions. Now tins fast-breaking dawn discloses a number of slim poles cutting the sur face of the water. Again the crash of the fire breaks out. It is futile, but tbe nerves of the gunners will not stand Inaction. The defending de stroyers charge the submarines, try ing to knock away 'their periscopes and to explode mines close to their hulls. Here and there they succeed. A whalelike snout Ib thrown out of the water and sinks again forever. There 1b a whirr of wings overhead. The' aeroplanes are up. Soon foun tains of water are spouting from where their dropped bombs explode. But above all the din there arises a dull, muffled, roar a second, a third. Some of the battleships are hit One torpedo which missed its mark de stroys the caisson of the dock in which the flagship is lying for repairs. Worst of all, the fleet has lost lta sense of security. It must go out and fight at any cost What the flreshlps were designed to do In the old wars, and seldom did, the submarine can accom plish, at least. If she Justifies the hopes' of those who believe In her." Not Badly Stung. This story is credited to Bill Bow en of Atchison: A man entered a store and bought three cigars and lighted one. "Lord, this is a rotten cigar," be creamed. "Say, man, what are you complain ing about?" replied the dealer. "You have only three of thoee cigars, and I have a thousand. Be reasonable." Kansas City Star. Solomon Generous as Well as Wise. A family traveling in a covered wagon through Solomon the other day bad an opportunity to learn what kind of people live In that town. A horse belonging to the travelers dropped dead In its harness on the main street of the town.

It was in a rural district and they were having a spelling bee for the youngest members of the class. The teacher departed a little from the usual custom and each pupil waa required to spell and define the word given him. "Jewel," said the teacher. One lit tle rosy-cheeked maid spelled It cor rectly, and then gave the definition "Gem." "How does a gem look?" the teacher asked. "What Is a gem?" The little girl did not know. The entire class looked puzzled. Finally' one little maid brightened, and .raised her hand triumphantly.
