Tlio significance of tliu election of
Senator Uursuni is mora far-reaching
limn the people of the stale
of New Mexico realize. The cam
paign in this slale has hecn watühed

inonco in Hie east. Had tliis slatc

pure politicul hunuombo, hut now

(J'roni the New York Herald)
Democratic disappointment over
the election of Dursum, the Itc
puMiean candidate for United States
Senator from Now Mexico, is more
biltcr than it was over the loss of
the state o Harding lasl year. In
the election of 1920, partisanship
was swept away everywhere ex
cept in the solidost part of Uic south;
by the transcondent Issue of saving'
tho country from perilous advon
tiiros abroad and ruinous misman
agement at home.
In that national election thcro
seemed to bo little thought and oven
less talk of Republicanism and dem
ocracy when tho vast majority of
the nation was bent upoii getting
the country out of the national and
international mess into which it had
been thrust, not as tho democratic
party's policy sbut as the imperious
will and infloxiblo program of a
But tho veterans of public lifo
have taken it for granted that with
tho great restoration of American
principles by that election of 1920
democratic slates would again grav
itate toward the democratic party as
naturally as water seeks its level.
New Mexico, in its brief period of
statehood had shown itsolf to ho a
democratic state until Mr. Wilson's
administration threw it over to the
Harding column by a plurality of
11,000. That tho state is still turned
away from the democratic party af
ter the Wilson issuo lias been dis
posed of for good and all, is the
staggering blow lo those democrat
ic leaders who are now trying lo ex
plain that tlio ote was very light.

We Furnish The Home Complete.
I One Size Packet-
All our skill, facilities, and lifelong knowledge of the
finest tobaccos are concentrated on this one cigarette
Jnto this ONE BRAND, we put the utmost quality.
Nothing is too good for Camels. They are as good as it's
possible to make a cigarette.
Camel QUALITY is always maintained at the same high,
exclusive standard. You can always depend on the same
mellow-mild refreshing smoothnessthrtaste andKh
"flavor of choicest tobaccos and entire freedom fotmi
cigaretty aftertaste. '
And remember this! Camels come in one size package
only 20 cigarettes just the right size to make the greatest
saving in production and packing. This saving goes
straight into Camel Quality. That's one reason why you
can get Camel Quality at so moderate a price.
Here's another. We put no useless
frills on the Camel package. No "extra
wrappers!" Nothing just for show!
Such things do not improve the smoke
any more than premiums or coupons. And
their added cost must go onto the price
or come out of the quality.
One thing, and only one, is responsible
for Camels great and growing popularity
that, is CAMEL QUALITY.
