tierapo from the tropics ofold Mexico I send you greetiriRS today Is it too take to wish you a happy new year This la the Mexican Balution TeiiRo el honor de enviar a ud PU a fectuoso felieltacion doiino nuevo paring the last decailo Mexico has been kept with her ever increasing in terest before the minds of the Ameri can people Books have been written lectures given speeches made sermons preached but this is only the lie ginning What has already been said needs to be a thousand times repeated and to this should be added new facts that are developing day by day in our sister Republic While her climate her productions her rivers her tnoun tains and valleys remain the same as when the Taltecs anti afterwards the Artecs trod her soil during these in tervening centurcs a history has been making both a civil and religious his torywhose pages tell the tale of a na tiou liberated and a nation that has at last caught a glimpse of tIle Sun of Righteousness Look for a moment at the geography of Mexico She is smaller by fourfifths than our laud and is divided into twentyseven states two territories and a federal district About oDt half of her territory lies in the torrid zone but from the lowlands of the coast to the tops of highest mountains may be found almost every variety of climate and hence of production On the low landswliere I am located coffee grows in the friendly shade of the jasmine while the lemon and banana groves alternate with those of harder wood On the central table land which has an elevation of from 2000 to 7 000 feetare found corn wheat beans grapes and peaches in fact all that might reason ably be expected from H climate so nearly perfect astute Mexicoa mineral wealth has long at tracted the attention of the outside world For silver she stands proudly in the front rank During the last three hundred years millions of sliver have been taken from her seemingly Inexhaustible mines Of iron she is said to have solid mountains while lead nlckelzinc and other minerals are being constantly drawn from the soil Year by year these rich mineral e sources are being developed promising to put her ere long among the wealth iest of tho nations But by far the most interesting feature of this sun kissed land is the people who tread her soil They deserve to be well studied for what they are for what they have suffered and most of all tor what they are capable of becoming The popula tion is estimated at about 12000000 Thus with one fifth of the territory Mexico has about ope sixth of the population of the United States From among her native Indian population have come some of her most eminent heroes mOl whose patriotism and dar jug valor entitle them to a high place on the roll of honor of the nations Benito Juarezthe immortalized President of the Republic who on the 14th day of July 1859 made proclama tion of the degree which confiscated all the property of the Catholic church to the government and people of Mexico was a thorough Indian of the finest type Gen Porfiirio Diaz who is now President of the Republic is no un worthy representative of the intelli gence patriotism and courage of the native Mexican They are a people of genuine determination their three centuries of foreign oppression have reduced them to a state of object pover ty and misery from which they are but slowly recovering Their superstitious allegiance to the Catholic church which is only a form of pagan ism here enables theirspiritual masters to rob them of the larger part of their scanty earnings They have thus hal but little chance to emerge from the degraded state in which they were left by their Spanish oppressors The dominating or ruling class at present is a mixed race formed by the commingling of native Indian blood with Spanish German French and AngloSaxon Among these the Spanish element predominates giving a Spanish tinge to everything civiliza tion culture thought This of course fixes the Spanish as the general Ian guage of the country It was largely thought the influence of this mixed rare that Mexico was enabled to break the thrAlldom of Spains tyranny and take her stand among the free nations of the earth In this struggle there was native Indian plus Spanish bloodagainst pure Spanish Victory was on the side populaton A Babys BSrf 1is very much like the blossom II lag of a flower Its beauty and II

South thIS country is being threaded with railroad factories of every description are being built mines of untold wealth are being opened and worked commerce is be lug extended All of which moans that Germany England France and the United States are adding daily to the foreign population of Mexico Every shade ol color is titus found among the people of Mexico from the olive Indian to the white caucaslon Amoug those of mixed blood it is interesting to note the varied shades found sometimes in the same family Look now with me at the dark side of the picturethe JI1I1 ion of these people The original Tollecsas also the Aztees who came later into the coun try were pagans and idolaters of the most degraded type The annual of fering of from 20000 to 30000 human sacrifices to their duties formed the principal part of their worship Travelers to the city of Mexico may still see on the slaughter stone preserved in the National Museum the bloodstains that tell of human lives offered up cen- turIes ago to appease the wrath or se cure the favor of the gods of this heathen race Thus things continued till the Spanish Conquest in 1521 Rome subtle bloodtl irsty Rome then caught sight of this rich prey Here she had full scope for the exercise and development of her mightiest powers At the point of the sword not the Sword of the Spirit but the sword of steel Mexico was conquered and became a Christian country a nation in adayl lint after all the change was not so great The Indian could still worship his national goddess provided only her name be changed to the Virgin of Guadeloupe The idolatry of Rome was grafted upon the paganism of Mexico It For three long dark centuries Rome gloated over her Mexican slave mil any ene of those poor downtrod den people dafe to open his mouth against the high handed robbery practiced on him the Holy Inquisition was at hand to make him pay with his lifes blood the penalty of such presumption Be still aud know that I amRome said tile holy Pantifl tOhis newly con verted children During the tnree cen turies sow 1521 to 1821 the word liberty might well have been blotted out from the vacabulary of Mexicos millions But God kept alive in tile hearts of some anti used these itO awaken in the hearts of others that love of freedom which leads men to lay down their lives to obtain so precious a boon for their fellowmen their country With the national independence which followed the heroic struggle of 1810 Mexico still found herself the slave of Rome One victory served to inflame the de sire for another Rome awaro of her danger Spared no effort to tighten bet grasp upon the State and people An other bold step must be taken if Mexico is to be wholy free Accordingly in 1857 the Amended Constitution was proclaimed which decree an absolute divorce between the Catholic church Slid the government and thereby granted unrestricted freedom of conscience and religious worship to all personages sects and churches equally and alike Here was the death blow to the ever increasing wrath of Rome it was not to be expected that the situation would be gracefully accepted by the clergy but the die had been cast Mexico was at last free Such is the sal story that her history presents For 300 years theCliurch ol Hone bad unlimited swayample time to be sure to work out the best or the worst of which she is capable Result The moral and religious condition of Mexico today makes clear to the eyes of all the world the legetimate fruits of Roman Catholicism viz Ignorance superatitution vice The Bible is hated as is no other book The Sabbath dayI shudder to think of what I have already seenla Satans great day Dull fights cock fights gambling in every conceivable form and drunken ness besides alt kinds of pleasure excursions from the chief acts of service rendered on Sunday to the Deceino of souls Mescal an intoxicating drink made from the Magney floods the country doing its deadly work among its victims Idolatory increases in exact proportion with pietythe most pious are always the most idolatrous Private homes chapels and cathedrals are filled with idolatrous saints The Virgin and Saints have driven the only begotten of the father from the land or rather have striven not to let Him enter But He has entered and He will enter for God Himself has said ask of me and I will give thee the heathen for thine in leritanceand the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possessions and there can be no mistake Surely the King of Glory ehall come in- Can we longer say shall we send missionaries to Mexico Her nearness to our own doors the protection she guarantees those who bring her the Truth her ignorance of the blessed Book her many forms of idolatry prac ticed In the name oi religion in a word everything connected with her history in the past and her condition in the present ideclares plainly unmistak bly that our heavenimposed duty to the perishing of our sister Republic Is to give them the blessed Gospel of the

druggists ST VALENTNffi Cincinnati Enquirer This is St Valentines Day This is the day that you are supposed to send dainty verses and pictures with fila gree work around them to your sweetheart You are also supposed to send some toughlooking pictures and bad poetry of a distinctly personal nature to all of your enemies who are bigger and more muscular than yourself- to all the Willie boys whohave made googoo eyes at your girl to all old maids who have talkedabout how hard you are drinking now to all the barkeepers who have refused you credit to all the tailors that you have succeeded in get ting in on and in short to all the people that you want tojnsutt but dont care to get into a fight with That is what St Valentines Day has degenerated into In days of yore it was the custom for ye gallant swain to trot out his Pegasus along about the fourteenth day of February and do a few fast heats on the poetical track The sighing lover would compose verses on the manifold beau ties of his mistress eyebrow and drop the missive at her doorNowhe goes down to a store on Fourth street or Race street or Vine street and buys about three and onehalf inches of sentimental poetry suited to the personal and physical charms of the girl he happens to be stuck on at the time This poetry is in cased about in paper frills that have the appearance of the old fashioned tidies on the cupboard shelves If the val entine is a particularly nice one the poetry is padded underneath and there are a num ber of air holes in the paper for purposes of letting out and cooling the ardor of the versesSome of the verses that are seen on this years valentines are hot enough to take the bark off of a Hottentot They singe the paper and an aspir ing lover whose muse wont work can experience no diffi culty in picking out a verse or AngelinaIwho cannot be suitdvhoca- nnotgetanytbing sufficient expressJhis affectiod for Angelina would better go out and Woo Angelina with an ax Of course all this refers to the nice valentines and not to the comics The comics are dainty little missive that inform the receiver that the unknown sender believes him to be a crosseyedmurderer who drinks fivecent whisky and beats his wife with a bed slat Or if the receiver doesa happen tobe married there are cOmics to lit all 0 tH Icaseshe will in all likelihood be handed a lovely little pic Lure depicting him in the act of robbing a grave and containing the usual verse to the effect that it is only a question of time when the recipient will be tarred and feathered by an outraged public Of course you arent sup posed to know who the sender is but if you can find out there is no law on the statute books to prohibit you from kicking in eight of his slats The dear girls have a chance to get in their work the comic also Its easy money If you know of any one Kitty Ann who has been trying to get a bunch on you in the race for the affections of Reginald send her a val entine Send her one containing the picture of a red headed Medusa with blue nose and rings in her ears Always see to it that the Medusa is dressed in a gown of last years cut That will make your hated rival feel like thirty cents She will know Kitty Ann that some one in the cold unfeeling world is sore on her and that maybe she isnt as goodlook ing as Reginald told her she was after all Cheer up Kit ty Ann And this is what Valentines Day has come to I But still the dealers in val entines says that their sales have been larger this year than for several years past There was a timefour or five years agowhen the sale of valentines of all kinds fell off to such an extent that local dealers were obliged to carry almost entire stocks over from year to year But now the demand has returned and the valentine custom seems not to be doomed There are valentines of all prices on sale at tie different stores about town Some of the department stores and of the larger stationery stores have in stock handsome water color valentines that are very expensive and which form beautiful parlor decorations Silks and satins and even rare laces go to make up some of the higherpriced valen tines In the medium class there is notmuch change from the patterns of other years A few novelties have been introduced of course but the old style conventional filli gree paper with the heart and the dove and sentimental verse seems to hold its own The sale of comics has increased wonderfully this year according to the state ments of several dealers who were consulted in the matter The greatest customers are children of course but those of mature years also indulge occasionally You would be surprised remarked one dealer at the number of nicely dressed men and women who purchase the socalled comic valentines Ive sold thousands of them this year The demand was very briskVFor the weakness and prostration fol lowidg grippe there is nothineso prompt and effective as One Minute Cough Cure This preparation is

passage With fair words and plenteous promises lie allured his followers to Italys sun kissed plains where they met defeat sad where their bones soon lay bleach log With analogous exactitude the promoters of the proposed electric line cry Beyond the hills lies Lexington and seek to find favor among our people by roseate visions of bargains to bA found in the Blue Grass Capital But ve tear that the evils that would beset such asystem would more than counter balance the good to be derived and like the Phoenician armywe would loose by the invasion In the first place there is little difference in the stock carried by our leading merchants and that of the Lex ington firms They are both bought from the same wholesale houses Take for example our dry goods houses Turner White Gibson Oldham and Elder all buy their supplies direct from the New York and Chicago houses In the haberdashery line our home firms are supplied with all the novelties and fads to be found in Lexington One can buy as correct toegery at Rice Arnolds or Douglas Bros as can be found any w here and the latest things in ties gloves etc Covington Banks have as large a stock as have Kaufman and Straus or Graves and Coxa Jop lins and Oldhams funituro emporiums contain as large and complete lines as may be found in Kentucky and if one wants cheap shoes that will last who ran beat the W L Douglas 3ehoe sold by Freeman Bros of this cityAnd in all lines it will be found that merchandise of all kinds may be pur chased here inqualitynota whit inferior to that kept by the tradesmen of our sister city Prices too are about the same Does it look fair to our mer chants who sell goods on a years time and patiently wait sometimes even longer for their money to go to Lexington and pay cash for the same articles for which you make them wait on payment We ate heartily in favor of home in dustries Madison is a wealthy county and her wealth should benefit her peo pIe and not those ofa neighboring county Should the electric line be built it would result in a complete stagnation of business in Richmond Our money would go to Lexington in a continuous stream Our people would buy everything there from a mowing machine to a collar button Oiir merchants would have to close their doors and Richmond would be dead dead dead It would be impossi ble to persuade our citizens that things could be boughtas cheaply here as there They would go to Lexington just to be goingSo preserve our own towns indus tries and to prevent it from drifting into a state of innocuous desuetude we oppose this car system that would drain Madison county aedry asa lime kilnOur attention was called to this subject by an article in the Register advocating the line We are sony to see our esteemed contemporary so blind to the interests of the community among which it has to make a living Does the Register not know that were this line established they as well as the other job printing offices might as well close up shop for every bill advertising every sale in the county would soon be nrinted in Lexington This reflection should bring the mat ter home to our sister joural and show her the disadvantages of the plan she espouses The trusts have not a surer hold on the market than Lexington would soon have on Richmond were this eloctrict line erected Away then with such an id- eaPIRSONALR Miss Sallie Taylor is

Richmond Family The following incident taken from the Letters of a Congressmans Wife published in the Saturday Evening Post will be of interest to many of our readers as the little girl mentioned in it Is the daughter of Robert L Preston formerly Professor of Latin in Central University Mr Preston has been for a number of years conducting a most successful Univer sity School in Washington DC Mr Morelos of the Spanish Legation said I have never seen a President of the United States at play Madame He spoke much as though it were the custom for our Executives to gambol upon the green when not signing bills or conducting campaignsand as though ho had been cheated out of a diplomatic right to see the President at his games I smiled and said Well you should have seen this President at play a few weeks ago Mr Morelos It was a very pretty sight Little Leonora P a child of five or six came one day to the White House to see Mrs McKinley Mrs McKinler is very found of children and asked Leonora to visit her Well Leonorn arrived all starched and frilled and with her best and primmest little manners to the fore Her old black mammy nurce was with her and it was evident that Leonora had been instructed to be very polite and not to sit down In the prea ence of the mistress of the White House unless pressed to do so and oboveall to answer all questions promptly Both the President and Mrs McKinley re ceived the child They did all they LOU Id to make her feel at home but Leonora was evidently a good deal awed At last Mrs McKinley observ lug time years of the old black mammy pressed her to sit down and the child too but before the words were out of her mouth Leonora said admonishingly to lietnuree in an undertone and holding herself bolt upright Nomaramy servants must not sit Why Leonora said Mrs McKinley much amused mammys an old woman And you sit doxvii yourself dont you1 Oh yesm returned the child gravely but then Im people This reply nearly bowled the Pres ident over and he and Mrs McKinley smiled broadly Thin Mrs McKinley took out her watch which contains a portrait of the President Sho held it out and said coaxingly Leonora you cannot tell mo of whom this ia a pictureVLeonora drew near aud scanned the open watch A bright look swept over her face She smiled up at her host and hostess and said knowingly Oh yesfrnI know who it is Well who is it Leonorar Ita Dewey This was altogetherVtoo much for the President lie went off into a fit of laughter so long andso loud that some of the staff from the executive endoftbe building came hurriedly lo Jearit what luul happened There was noihing too Rood for the child In the whole White House after her mpus recognition of that picture That Mr J y imij I S Scrofula Subdues and heals SaltRheum cures BoilsI removes Pimples and Eruptions gives fairV clear complexion It thoroughly purl fies vitalizes and enriches the blood Morelos was a time when a President of the United States was entirely off guard and was at play with a little childVI should like to have seen it MadameThe thing was continued I the consternation of that old mammy Site said to me afterward Law me Mrs Slocum I was that outdone with Leonora for tellin Mrs McKinloy she wascarryin the Admirals picture in her watch I could have whoopped her Oh well said I the President only thought it was very funny lie didnt mindVYesm said she the President is real true quality Why Women Fall In Business I have recently been interested in ascertaining the definite reasons why employers have felt that the positions in their establishments were not most affectively filled by womenwrltes Ed ward Bok of The Return of the Business Woman in the March Ladies Home Journal The reasons are as varied as they are interesting The lack of physical endurance and the un reliability caused by physical consider ation were time main causes The tack of executive ability was given as the main reason in positions of trust and the friction caused by the objection of women subordinates to receive orders from one of her own sex Pending or impending matrimonal engagements were also a very pronounced caused The properties also came in for their share the merchant not feeling that he could ask his female secretary or clerk to remain after business hours Rio trader felt that he could not scud a woman off on a mission which required hasty packing and preparations for travel at an hours notice In a number of cases women seemed to object and were inclined to accuse their employers of forgetting the social amenities when they spoke sharply to them In these cases women always seemed to remember that they were women and made their employers re member it too Illness in the family which would not necessitate a mans absence at the office keeping time wo man at home was another reason whichiferred men to women in their offices And as I carefully went over the rea sons each pointed to simply one thing The unnatural position of women in

in mechanical traction notably in cycles and motor carp wears asked as formerly when roads were made whether the horse is not sooner or later to disappear as a draught animal And recently when the transformation of Parisan coaches into motor cars took place certain pessimistic spirits were oof slow to proclaim that the days of the most noble conquest of man were numberedLet friendof the equine race bo uneasy In reality since the adop tion of railways the number of horses has not diminished but on the contra ry It has increased continuously aud remarkably and principally in the country where the network of railroads is the most developed At present it js computed there are about 37000000 horses In Europe 24 000000 in America 5000000 la Asia 2000000 in Australia nnd 1000000 OQly for all the African continent That is to say there are in round numbers nearly 70000000 horses againsf 100000 locomotives 20000 eJejSri tramways and 10000 autosao Wle carriages So It k easily sees that there

industrial development of the United States which shows that while in 1880 the United States mined of bituminous coal 41000000 tons last year it mined 198000000 tons In 1879 the production of pig iron was less than 3000000 tons last year it was nearly 14000000 tons In 1880 the United States bad less than 10000000 cotton spindles now there are over 18COO000 The railroad mileage of 1880 was 92147 at present we have over 190000 miles of railroads The production of cotton advanced from 5700000 bales in 1880 to 11200000 bales in 1S9S 99 In 1800 the total amount of capital invested in manufactures in the United States was 2790000000 in 1890 it was 6500000 and the 1000 census will probably show a total of at least 10000000000 with an increase in wages paid to factory hands 947000000 in 1880 to probably over 3500000000 in 1900 Get a suit at the closing out sale and save money at Stouflers the TailorlthdcctfWoodard and Shankllns Sale Messrs Woodard Shanklin concluded their winter sale of trotters yesterday It was one of the most sue cessful sales held in this city in recent years During the four days of the sale 333 horses were sold for an ag gregate amount of 80400 Yesterday 72 head passed under the hammer for 11012 an average of 16132 The prices realized were in nearly Very instance most satisfactory There were more buyers in the city during this sale than at any time for many years and there are many orders yet unfilled as the horses could not be found The Kentucky market is in a most healthy condition Well bred young brood mares command fancy prices but the public is not looking for old mares that have been tried and found wanting no matter how richly they may be bred Youngsters of good breeding are eagerly sought out colts and Jlles without stake engagements are not wanted It was a noticeable encouragement to see yearlings briny such good prices and this will doubtless cause many of the Blue Grass breedeis to hold annual yearling sales to dispose of their products which would be very advantageous as it will give them a chance to put their youngsters into appreciative hands and at the same time make room for the youngerstock- Already some of life largest breeding establishments such as Elmhurst Farm and Highland Farm have announced their intentions of disposinc of their lull crop of yearlings during the breeders meeting eacli full and il iaJikely that many others will fall ir line This will be an innovation ir the trotting horse breeding industry aud if it is a success it will mean much to the Kentucky hreederwho does no careand

other owners who would do the same thing if sufficient inducements are offered by the associations to make it pay If such purses were offered and the various tracks put in proper shape there is no
