Speaking of conditions generally In
knd around Tucumcari Mr. Matteson
said: “Things are a bit quiet around
Tucumcari now, but this condition of
nlTalrs I find Is not peculiar to the
place, as it appears quiet in all quar-
ters at this season. The town, how-
ever, Is undergoing a good, steady
growth and Is fast becoming a city.
There has recently been established
In Tucumcari a wool-scouring plant
which will start up this week and
which will prove quite an important
enterprise to the town. Tucumcari Is
in the center of the big wool-growing
section of the territory and several
thousand pounds of wool are now
'stored there for treatment In the new
“The country has been blessed with-
in the past few weeks with an abund-
ance of rain and the grass never
looked better. Along the railroad
tracks heavy crops of prairie hay are
now being cut.”
Mr. Matlcson Is Just back from a
visit to his old home In Illinois and

Is very hopeful of the election of

PARKER GOES ON NO TOUR.
Esopus, *' Y., Sept. JO—Whether
Judge Pars shall continue to con
duct his* personal campaign from
Kosomounl or whether he shall go on
a speaking tour, are questions that
have agitated the mindB of callers at
If Judge Parker's personal Jtulg
ment determines the question be will
remain quietly at home, regardless of
any demands that may be made upon
Many of Judge Parker's visitors to-
day advised the candidate to go on a
speaking trip. They said his .prc-s
er.ee Is needed In the doubtful states,
where rallleb could'be held.
Judge Parker later discussed the
questions with William F. Sheehan,
chairman of the national executive
committee: Colonel Daniel S. Lament.
Herman Ridder of New York and for

At the conclusion of the conference

authoritatively that the former state-

concerned, and that Judge Parker Is
not now disposed "to make a speaking
Mr. Ridder has undertaken In this

work is done from the outaet.
Judge Parker was urged by Mr. Rid

the doubtful states. Mr. Bidder lug
seated a trip by Judge Parker a nttle
later in the campaign.
“It is Impossible to keep up an un-
interrupted lurore of politics for two
months.” said Mr. Sheehan, “and we
are not trying to; but we are getting
down to work and expect to bring
about .satisfactory results. One thing
It Is necessary to take Into considera-

i.hrd From Our Sluht.
All Europe was in pnugw of terror
when in 1832 it was uumnmoed that
Hirin'* comet would cross the earth's
pail). People died of terror, nutl «-> se-
rious did the score become that a Purl-
siau professor feasSed the Academy of
Science to pubMcl.v refute the assertion.
The comet came, blazed awhile in the
sky and vanished. Its period of revo-
lution .round the Mia I slag Just under
seven years. It ca: <• again In 1830 and
was due once Iporv eorly in 1840. But
lu that year, instead of ouc comet, two
appeared.' The original comet had di-
vided'Into two part*, each of which
bad a separate existence, though tlirir
paths were the same.
In 1WV2, the two comets again eaino
flying into sight. Their path in 1850
was too close to the sun for telescopic
scrutiny, but in ISibi It wan expected
tluit they would jbe plainly visible. But
the double comet never turned up. Nor
turn It ever Ueeu eceti since.
Comets are naturally somewhat un-
rrilalde. 'They arc of very flimsy tex-
ture One great ariromuner indeed ha*
said that you could pack the tail of the
average comet in a portmanteau. So If
they |mss too near to Jupitor or any of
the big planets they are very apt to get
caught uud *o to disappear completely.
THROWING THE DICE.

The Invention of dice hag been of old
ascribed to FiUiumalcs, the son of
Naupllus, king of Euboea, nltout 1244
B. C„ ami nlso to a Greek soldier nam-
ed A lea, which Is the Latin for n die,
but Herodotus assigns both dleo and
chess to the Lydians.
The ancient Germans would gamble
away at dice all that tltey were worth
and then their liberty, submitting to
slavery if they lost, ami tho Saxon*,
Dunes and Normans were all addicted
to tbc game. Fox Talbot is of opin-
ion that tho Latins Invented, If not
the game, nt least the name for the
single point, which they culled unua.
The Germanic races, adopting this
practice from the Grctka, translated
the Greek corruption of* units into ass,
which lias- now become mce. The root
of this word lies In the Latin us, the

Organ in tho syrinx, which Is provided
with what are really vocal chords of a

Old lliiman Hairpin*.
That deadly Implement, tbc hatpin of
modern times. Is a descendant of an
equally formidable toilet article used
by Homan women. The Aspnslas aud
Julius and Claudia* who decked them-
selves a couple of tbousnnd years or
more ago, to tho undoing of the par-
ticular Baibas or Marcus they desired
to fascinate, wore bone Imlrplns of
prodigious length. Yet, like the wo-
men of this present time, they seem to
have jfixperienced the same difficulty In
keeping them in place. This fact came
to light during excavations at rtllcbes-
tcr, near Reading, England, a hundred
qr bo of those bone hairpin* being
found in the Roman bath, collected
Binybe by the bath attendant, to prove
all these oenturie* later that there Is
nothing new under the sun uml that In
