and the United States' caused public
attention and Interest to be focused'
upon the coast cities of the republic
south of us the moment It was seen
hat there was a possibility of an arm-
conflict between the two countries.
Icxico is rich in natural resources, and
lie western coast especially is a splen-

these pu'.ces was extremely vague. Most

ly the Pan-American union, of which
lolin Barrett is director general.
The Premier Port of Mexico.
Of all Mexico's seaports Vera Cruz
likes the lead. It is the first com-
Iicrclal port of the republic and is one
f the oldest and most cosmopolitan
ities in the state of Vera Cruz. It
I'as one of the places settled by the
Ipanlsh invaders and today presents a
Ucturesquo appearance, blending the
itlquo and the modern.
Vera Cruz is the natural gateway

bore than one-half of the foreign marl-
line trade and approximately a quar-
l-r of the total Imports and exports.

ern Pacific railway extends from
Guaymns to Kogales nnd from Guay
mas to Mnzatlnn, with an extension to
Guadalajara, opening up one of the
richest sections in the country.
Guaymas has a population of about
12,000, and they do an enormous mer
cantile business In supplying the min
ing regions in the mountains and the
ranchmen along the Yaqul river. Its
natural business is doubled by contxl
"butlons from .smaller ports, both nortk
ftud south and along the coast of Lower
California, which send their produce
to be shipped to outside markets.
Beautiful City of Guaymas.
The city of Guaymas is one of tho
most beautiful in Mexico. It is noted
for its well laid plazas, which are filled
with tropical palms and fruit trees.
Tho streets are broad nnd well kept.
Modern watering carts are in constant
operation, the water from the ocean
being used for sprinkling Instead of

fresh water. Tho amount of business
done in the city is surprising consider
ing Its size.
Various writers have tried to de
scribe tho beautiful bay of Guaymas.
Says one (John C. Van Dyke): "The
bay of Guaymas Is typical of all tho
gulf bays and Is a fair illustration of
the coast scenery. It Is one of the
most beautiful harbors in tho world.
Hare mountains, 1,500 feet high, sur
round it and look down upon it, and
In the morning, when tho harbor wa
ter is smooth, their reflections are as
clear cut as though cast in a mirror.
The local color of the water is green,
but the intense blue of the sky changes
it by reflection to a deep cobalt, and
the mountains of rock nro brown, terra
cotta, rose color, changed ngain by sun
set light Into mounds and spires and
pinnacles of gold, crimson, lilac nnd
"Day after day there is the blue glow
of the clear sky, but at dawn, when
there is a haze or a few fleecy clouds,
tho eastern sky flames with yellow and
scarlet, and at sunset brilliant car
mines, spectral greens nnd burning
golds stretch In great bands along the
gulf horizon or aro reflected from the
wind blown cirrus of the upper sky.
From the mountain tops on clear nights
one can look ncross to Lower California,
ninety miles away, and the,, contrast of
tho -wide cobalt of gulf, with tho wido,
flaming sky above it, Is most violent.
Imposing, awe inspiring."
Tampico and Matamoros.
Tampico and Matamoros are tho two
ports of entry of Tamaullpas. Tam
pico Is one of tho most important ports
in tho republic, ranking after Vera
Cruz in east coast traffic. Situated six
miles from the mouth of tho Panuco
river, it has several fine public build
ings, tramcars, a chamber of com
merco and is modern In all ways. Tho
Tampico-Tuxpan canal connects the la
goons along tho coast Tho same

that make Tampico a port of call also,
Matamoros, on the Itlo Grande, in
tho extreme northern part of tho state,
is connected with tho Texas side of
tho river by an international bridge.
Tho city is thirty-one miles from the
gulf and thcrcforo has no great marine
traffic, but tho commerce with tho Unit
ed States is of decided Importance and

called the; "Pearl of tho Occident," the

him. The city stands on a small penin
sula opposite the bay of Olas Altas

Topolobampo nnd Altata are the oth

Topolobampo has the finest harbor be
tween San Diego and Panama.
Cullacan is the oldest city on the

THEY WILL TEACH THRIFT.
New Society Is Designed to Help Peo
ple to Save.
Teaching of thrift in tho public
schools, colleges and universities, dis
cussion of thrift by commercial organ
izations from its economic standjKilnt.
preaching about It in the churches from
its moral aspect are a few of tho plans
of tho American .Society For Thrift
which has begun a national campaign
from its headquarters in Chicago.
S. W. Straus, a banker of New York
and Chicago, is chairman of tho or
ganization committee and announces
that tho society Is soliciting no funds.
"To promote nationally tho Individual
economy "which is tho basis of good
citizenship and community prosperity,"
says Mr. Straus, "this organization has
taken up n nation wide inquiry to do
termine how best and most quickly to
change tho prodigal spirit of our times
to tho spirit of thrift. It is tho plan
to make tho personnel of tho board and
advisory council of the society nation
ally representative. All trados, indus
tries, charities and philanthropies will
be represented. All representative bod
ies will bo asked to co-operate.
"Tho prevailing spirit in the United
States onco was that of thrift Today
wo aro a prodigal nation. Tho max
ims of 'Poor Richard, which did much
to keep tho heads of the people level
for half n century, seem forgotten.
Thrift means moro than saving it
means earning, working, planning, in
creasing as well as conserving. Upon
individual thrift the prosperity and
thrift of tho nation depend. It is high
time that something bo done to encour
age and teneh thoso "who in tho past
have been .misled by get rich quick
schemes or who havo lacked knowl
edge of how to save."
Railroad Head Rather Be a Farmer,
In order to work out his theory that
the only solution of the high cost of
(lying problem is tho proper develop
njent of Amerlcnn farming, William O.
BroAvn has resigned as president of
tho New York Central railroad, to tako
effect Jan. 1. no will retire to his
model farm In Iowa. Ho has been a
warm advocato of tho "back to tho
farm" movement nnd has established
a series of experimental farms to dem
onstrate how abandoned farms, under
scientific development, can bo made to
yield handsome returns.
Hi'OUNG woman of many re
sources and fair culinary skill
found herself facing the prob
lem of ChristmaH gift giving
with a very depleted pocketbook. Shi
finally came to the conclusion that un
less she gave each of her friends a box
of the simple candles she knew how to
milkp It would be ImHssIble for her 'to
remember them. She made some pret
ty boxes, covering them with water
color or drnpe paper and decorating
them appropriately. Then she gath
ered her supplies together, and got
ready for work. She put off the mak
ing of the candy ns long as she could
In order that her sweetmeats might be
absolutely fresh when presented. Shu
had her nuts shelled and blanched
ready for use- and her simple coloring
matters bought ready for use in ad
vance. When she began making her candles
she had a clear Are in the kitchen
