maining five cars kept on until
they collided with a car loaded
with railroad iron in the yards
here. Nearly all of the cars were
an entire wreck while between
one and two hundred head of

for food. The engineer and train

New President of the New Mexico
Prof. C. L. Ilerrick, of this city,
has been elected as president . of
the New Mexico university at
Albuquerque. We have known
Prof. Ilerrick quite well since his
coming to New Mexico and know
whereof we speak when we say
that no better choice could pos
sibly have been made. The pn
fessor who had already attained
high honors in the East as an
educator and scientist was com
pelled to come west on account
of his health, but since coming
here he has been largely engaged
in scientific investigation, both in
this country and in Old Mexico.
Prof. Herrick is one ot those
modest and unassuming men who
never realizes how much he knows
so well as do those who have the
pleasure of his acquaintance and
we will repeat that the university
of New Mexico has been particu
larly fortunate in having secured
his services to guide its destinies.
In referring to his election as
president the Albuquerque Dem
ocrat has the following to say:
"At the meeting of the board
of regents of the New Mexico
University, held yesterday after
noon at the office of Secretary
Clancy, Governor E. S. Stover re
signed as president of the faculty
and instructor of the University
and on the recommendation of
W. B. Childers, president of the
board, Prof. C. L. Ilerrick. lately
of Socorro, was elected to fill the
vacancy. Prof. Ilerrick will also

take the place made vacant by
the resignation of Prof. Hiram
Prof. Ilerrick was for many
years one of the most highly re
spected and most -valued profes
sors in Dcnison University at
Granville, O. He was obliged to
come to New Mexico on account
of threatened lung trouble and for
some time past he has been lo
cated at Socorro where he has
been engaged in restarch in vari
ous branches of natural history,
and has also been a contributor
to various technical publications.
He has entirely recovered his
health and will prove a great
acquisition to the New Mexico
Weekly Crop Bulletin.
July 6, 1897.
The week ending July 5 dis
tributed its favors very unevenly,
some sections being visited with
abundant showers and others left
with very little or no rainfall.
Warm dry days with rather cool
nights made it unfavorable to
those localities not favored with
Most of the rainfall was accom
panied by light thunderstorms
and some hail occurred, but no
serious damage has been reported.
The snow in the mountains has
very generally disappeared and
the streams are falling rapidly,
but so far there is plenty of water
Wheat has been cut in the
southern part and is now being
cut farther northward, but will
not be ripe generally in the north
for some days.
Corn in the northern part has
not made satisfactory growth
owing to the cool nights. Fruits
of all kinds are in good condition.
The stock ranges in some lo
calities are in need of rain, but in
most places are in splendid con
dition and stock in good order.
General rains would be of great
benefit and July is the month
which usually favors us with the
heaviest rainfall of the year.
