palace and serenaded the provisional
president. During the forenoon Huerta

gift buying public, but. unllko tho stores
In the United States, the rush In not over
until ono week later. Only a fow Mexi
cans buy presents' and distribute them on
Christmas, but all of them want to give
tokens of their love and friendship on

This year the merchants mado little ef
fort to capture the holiday money. Senti
ment has dulled the buying -plrlt and
war has drained the money bags. As a
people, the Mexicans aro Impoverished.
Merchants who had placed orders early
In tho year with European toy houses
have generally cancelled them because of
tho Increased duty on all Importations.
