Reverend and Mrs. II. M.
Perkins are not to remain in So
corro. 1 his announcement, made
several days ago by Mr. Ptrkins
himself, caused no little dis
appointment among the many
friends whom he and his family
made during their short stay of
a little less than a vear in So
corro. Mr. 1'erKins has been
called to a much wider field of
activity. He will go to Savannah,
Georgia, where he will engage
in the organization of four or
five districts in the work of the
Presbyterian church. This is a
class of work for which Mr.
Perkins is especially well fitted,
as is shown by the result of his
efforts in Socorro. During his

The appropriation bill passed
by the late legislative assembly
contained one provision that is
sure to result in direct benefit to
many ot the young people oi the
I he provision is to
that each member of
the thirty-seventh assembly, also
each board of county commis
sioners, may appoint one student
to any territorial institution for
a period of four years. The stu
dent, or his parent, has the priv
ilege of selecting the institution,
and the person or board making
the appointment determines the
rules under which the appoint

assembly appropriated $12,500
to pay tlie expenses of such stu

NOTABLE WEDDING AT BELEN
Miss Anita Becker, Daughter
Wealthy Merchant, Weds Prom
inent Civil Engineer.
What was doubtless the most
elaborate wedding that ever took
place in Belen society was that
of Wednesday afternoon when
Miss Anita Becker, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. John Becker, be
came the bride of A. C. Bradley
of Lawrence, Kansas. The bride
is a charming and accomplished
young lady. The groom is a
civil engineer of ability. He
has recently had charge of the
construction work of the Belen
cut-off. The wedding ceremony
was performed at the home of
the bride's parents, and Mr. and
Mrs. Bradley left at once for a
honey-moon trip to Los Angeles
and other points of interest on
thf Pacific coavt.
Presbyterian church here the
number of communicants was
fully doubled, and the prosperity
of the church was greatly pro
moted in other respects. Mr.
and Mrs. Perkins left Tuesday
morning for Deming where he
attended the session of the
presbytery. From Deming they
expected to go tu Stamps, Ar
kansas, for a visit of a few davs
in the home of their daughter,
Mrs. J. R. Stewart, before going
on to Savannah. Their son
Homer will join them in Texas.
Mr. Perkins and family leave
many warm friends in Socorro,
who will wish them abundant
health and happiness wherever
their lot may be cast.
A Leave Taking.
In leaving Socorro, and going
to other work among other people,
in a far distant state, I desire to
say "Good-bye, and God-bless

I with the kindest feelings for
! every one of you, that we wish
for you all God's richest blessing,
that we will ever remember you

JUUAN J. TRUJILLO DEAD
L. Man of Marked Ability Suddenly
Ooes to Si Üeward.
Julian J. Trujillo is dead.
Death claimed its own at eleven
o'clock Tuesday night at Ran
chos de La Joya where the de
ceased was teaching school.
The news caused great surprise
and profound sorrow among the
many relatives and friends of
Mr. Trujillo in Socorro and vi
cinity. Death resulted from a
severe cold which developed into
a fever and other complications.
The remains were laid to rest in
the Catholic cemetery at La
Joya in the presence of a large
concourse of sorrowing relatives,
friends, and acquaintances.
Mr. Trujillo was born in So
corro in 1844. He was educated
for the priesthood but never
took orders. At various time.s
he occupied a variety of public
positions, everyone of which he
filled with credit to himself and
satisfaction to -those whom he
served. It is doubtful whether
any man in New Mexico ever
taught public school in as manv i
districts as Mr. Trujillo did.
He was a man of unquestioned
ability and kindly disposition.
His sorrowing family have, !
therefore, the keen sympathy oí
an extremely large circle of
friends and acquaintances. May !
he rest in peace. j
