reported today that the police had

DEMING AND MIMBRES VALLEY
IS STATION PARK;
LIT1GAL CANDIDATES IN FIELD
Deming, N. M.. Sept. 2. The plan
to park the S. P. right of way in front
of the union station -will be carried out
this fall. The roadmaster of the S. P.
at Deming, Chas. Butler, has received
instructions from the company to fill
in the 600 feet on Railroad avenue in
front of the station, preparatory to
parking. This -work -will be begun
The chamber of commerce recently
discussed the proposition with super
intendent Dyer, and assured him of
active cooperation in the project. An
irrigation well of a 1000 gallon per
minute capacity will be installed by
the town, equipped with a pump and
motor. The electricity to run the out
fit will be furnished free for operating
Will Be Show Plant.
It will be made a show plant, and
will be in sight of the various pas
senger trains that pull Into the union
station every day. This In itself will
be an Immense advertisement of the
resources of the Mimbres valley. Few
people traveling Into Deming by rail
ever suspect that beneath the desert
which they See stretching to either
side there is an Immense underground
river which Is being tapped to sup
ply hundreds of farms for irrigation.
There are few of these farms in sight
of the railroad.
When a well is put in for this park
the excess of water can be used to
park Silver and Gold avenues, which
will also make a wonderful improve
ment In the looks of the town from the
railway station. The pump, the motor
and the electricity have already been

Statehood and More Dignity
and Arguments in their Favor
By R. BEDICHEK, DEMING, N. M.
Easterners, and uninformed people
generally, seem to regard New Mexico
as a joke. The cartoonists of great
metropolitan newspapers picture Ari
zona and New Mexloo as miniature
cowboys with exaggerated spurs, miles
of lariat and sombreros as big as um
brellas, while from the huge bunch,
of cactus nearby, the rattlesnake and
the gila monster peer threateningly,
H. B. Hening, secretary of the New
Mexico bureau of immigration, calls at
tention to this matter in a recent issue
of the Bulletin, and says that the bu
reau is writing to the editors and car
tonnlsts of eastern .papers deploring
the anachronistic and ridiculous fash
ion of thus presenting New Mexico and
Arizona to their readers.
One Jast Protest.
The Evening Herald of Albuquerque
in an editorial entitled "They Can't
Quit It," among other remarks, pro
tests as follows:
"Now, as a matter of fact, there are
more apple pickers In Roswell, New
Mexico, today than there are cowboys
In the entire new state. There are
more farmers and miners and rail
roaders and merchants in New Mexico
than there are In some of the tiny little
states of the east.
"New Mexico has long outgrown the
cowboy idea and the wild west. If any
prancing broncos appear on the New
Mexico scenery within the corporate
limits of city, town or village the
riders thereof isually get 'pinched' for
disturbing th6 peace.
"Nobody parades around with artil
lery on, and the unsuspecting tender
foot who now and" then adorns himself
In that manner after having just ar
rived in New Mexico usually termi
nates his wild west stunt by handing
over $50 to the nearest police judge.
Xevr Mexico Apple.
"What New Mexico would like to
impress on the effete east, and espe
cially the managing editors and car
toonists thereof, is that New Mexico
apples hold f.rst place in the New York
markets. That our cantaloupes are the
best the- market affords and In demand
during the whole season at the best
hotels In the land. That we have law
abiding people and will tolerate no
other lclnd. That we have about all
the good land that is left open to
homesteaders and that we offer every
inducement to farmers, artisans, capi
talists and all other good, everyday,
all around American citizens."
Mimbres Valley Farmers.
To continue In the same vein, I de
sire to state that there are more farm
ers In the Mimbres valley alone than
there are cowboyB in the entire state.
Instead of being a place where the iti
nerant romancer can drop off the train
and "pick up enough local color in a
few days for 10 or 20 volumes of his
tommyrot, the Mimbres valley is a
place where perfectly decent and ln-
telllgent American citizens are farm
ing, pumping water for irrigation, edu
cating their children and becoming
prosperous and wealthy.
"Wld west shows in Deming are lib
erally patronized, which Is evidence
of the fact that the real thing has
long since vanished. The oldtimers
have very interesting stories to tell of
the pioneer days, before the advent of
the farmer, when John Shy had his
famous bout with the Indians in the
Floridas, when the ambitious shoe
maker tried to arrest a bad man, and
the bad man made a- gun play, scaring
the shoemaker literally to death, and
so on. Very Interesting it Is, and all
honor to the pioneers who fought the
fight and laid the foundations for the
substantial superstructure which Is
now being built, but it is abominable
to have New Mexico constantly adver
tised to the world as a place where
prevails the very element which these
same pioneers finally eliminated.
No Bad Men' In Town.
The days flow on peacefully. Week
after week passes and no bad man
shoots up the town. The jingle of
spurs is heard occasionally, but It
causes no panic, the cactus grows
chiefly in pots, and one may traverse
the valley for years without seeing a
rattlesnake. Tou can travel a day and
not be out of hearing of the pulselike
explosions of the gasoline engine which
brings the sparkling waters of an un
derground river to the 'surface, irrigat
ing fields of beans, alfalfa, and young
vineyards and orchards. The old or
der changeth. Holdups, shooting
scrapes, the tough honibre from Devil's
gulch, are all confined to the screens
of moving picture shows to be reenact
ed the next day in backyards and al
leys by little boys. On the mountains
i graze the peaceful herjds of gats and
every time a young couple start out life "with
a h'ome5 of their own. The home is the best
intermediary known, for those little differ
ences that are apt to arise in the course of
even the best regulated families, because of
the mutual interest it holds for both. Again,
the home comes in as "the backbone of the
rTation "Guess Theodore Roosevelt knew
what he was taking about eh? It certainly
behooves every family to give this question
careful consideration, and there will never
be a better time than right now to begin.

The Occasional Teaderfeot.
It is true that occasionally a tender
foot from, the east lights in our peace
ful valley, dons the habiliments of
war, and races awkwardly along the
highways on a $30 cowpony, hut no
one takes him seriously. He has those
things what d'ye callum chaps
yes, that's the word chaps, "buckled
about him frequently wrong side be
fore, but the Intelligence of the pony
keeps this individual from being dan
gerous, otherwise he might run over
And thus much for the education of
our eastern friends. New Mexico has
become a state and It's tired of this
wild west advertising. The symbol of
the Mimbres valley is the pumping
plant; the explosions of a thousand
gasoline engines are like the heart
beats of so many farms. Land that
cost $7.50 per acre two years ago is
now producing 'net $50 per acre per
year. The growth of Deming and the
Mimbres valley is steady, uniform and
healthful. Prospectors finding a? good
thing take hold and make money; they
write back to their friends and In
duce them to come out, and they in
turn bring others. And with all Its
waelth of natural resources, the chief
asset of the Mimbres valley today is
satisfaction and contentment of Its
citizens. "Opportunity knocks here;
no one else."
