The spring cattle shipments have
commenced in real earnest from this
part of the valley, and will continue
with more or less regularity from now
until the middle of June. J. J. Draper
is loading and shipping about three
train loads from Riverton, consigned to
Buxton, Kansas, for pasture.
S. T. Bitting is shipping about 3000
head from Lake Avalon to pastures In
Kansas and the Panhandle country. He
expects to ship about 700 head of cows
to the Panhandle country Saturday.
Jones Bros, will ship 500 cows to
northern pastures this week.
Benson Bros, will ship about 300
cows to pastures in Oklahoma Friday.
J. D. Hagler, the recent purchaser
of the Lucas & Reynolds ranch, ship
ped S00 steers to Hereford and the
Panhandle section this week.
Morgan Livingston has just conclud
ed the shipment of 1400 head of steers
to northern pastures.
These shipments represent but a
fractional part of the cattle which

j Cutting Hay.
The first cutting of alfalfa hay com
menced in this section of the valley this
week. Lee Holland was the first one
to start the mowing- machine with C.
R. Foster a close second. The hay is
of a fine quality. The freezing weath
er delayed the cutting about two
weeks. It was beginning to bloom when
a slight freeze killed the buds and It is
just now recovering from the effects

This would have been sad news for j

THE CANDIDATE WHO
FOOLED HIS FATHEE
Peraoiialities of Alamogordo
and Something About the
Prettv Town Itself.
(By Mrs. 3i. a. Tilton.)
Alamogordo, N. M., April 27. They
are telling a joke on judge Sherry, the
new mayor. The judge has -two sons
just out of college, both in their fath
er's law office. At the recent election
judge Sherry nominated his old time
friend, judge Bush, for the office of
city attorney. He made a most elo
quent nominating' speech, dwelling par
ticularly on the years of experience
his candidate had had, of his association
with Abraham Lincoln, as his legal
counsel, etc. About 3 p. m. the day "of
the election he strolled around to the
polls and discovered that his oldest
son. Prosper Sherry, had been put up
as a candidate for city attorney and
was way ahead of the ticket and at
sunset he was elected to the office.
The nonplused mayor went back to
the office and told the newly elected
cits- attorney to pack up his books and
get out, to go to judge Bush's office if
he wanted to practice law, and then
turning to his youngest son asked him
if he had any office up his sleeve that
he was going- to spring.
The Town of Alnmogordo.
Just think of a little lown out in the

full of green trees and flowers and

hedges of exquisite roses and all kinds
of flowers, a riot of bloom: walk past

goodie 3rou are expected to throw them;
you walk on past the bear's cage, past
the gorgeous peacocks, on past seats
placed invitingly under the trees, then
across a little stream into green alfalfa
fields, shaded still by the great alamo
gordos, on out at the other end and
your feet touch the scorching sand of
the desert, a desert of which as beau
tiful and romantic a story could be
told as that of Hitchings's "The Gar
den of Allah." Tou look off to the ieft
and see what at first looks like the
whitecaps dancing on the blue of th?
ocean, then you remember about the
great mounds of the white sands, an
unsolved mystery; you turn back and
walk through the grateful shade of t'le
park again and come out onto the main
street of the town, a broad street lined
on either side by large trees and inter
sected by dozens of lovely tree lined
residence streets. This broad main
street extends toward a towering range
of mountains, on top of which is our
much beloved Cloudcroft. At the base
of one of these mountains one sees the
sanatorium gleaming white against the
dark background ana -when we have
feasted our eyes on the beauty of the
town we stop and take a drink of the
"purest spring water in the world" at
the fountain in front of the court house.
In the beautiful grounds of the court
house we meet the sheriff of Otero
county, JNIr. Denney, a man who does
not know what the word fear means,
and then we are greeted most cordially
by judge Sherry, the new mayor, whose
admirers say that he will make the
best and wisest mayor Alamogordo
ever had. "We are invited to go through
the court house, and in the assessor's
office we are introduced to "W. H. Pel
phrey, the assessor, who carries on the
work of the office to the satisfaction
of nil. At another desk sits the coun

penmen I ever saw, and lifts the sheets
of paper as deftly as any one with ten
fingers. On coming out we meet "W.

though having only the stump of an
arm, is also a fine penman. Mr. Leon

of New Hampshire. Tie is only an
extensive traveler, having toured Eu

The social life of Alamogordo is of
a very high standard; the people here
have their various social clubs, and a
Shakspere club, the work of which
ranks with any of a larger city. The

Dalhart, Texas, April 28. The home

who was left in a weakened condition
after a serious illness and could
scarcely retain any food in his stomach,
fras one day induced to try him on
Grape-Nuts, the famous' ready-cooked
breakfast food, and from the first he
began . to Improve rapidly. In three
months he had gained 30 pounds.
She says thai his stomach has re
covered so completely that he can now
eat any kind of food.
She mentions the boy of an intimate
acquaintance, who was so delicate and
thin that his appearance was pitiable
and he had no appetite for any ordinary
food. He was put on Grape-Nuts and
liked the crispness and sweetish taste of
the new food and took to it. His Im
provement began at once and he Is now
a healthy, plump boy.

The claim tnat it will build up and
