The farmers are telling us that
feed stuff is getting scarce, owing
to the fact that so many home
seekers have come this winter who
had to buy feed that they have ex
hausted the supply. If wo have
severe weather next month stock
will necessarily suffer.
This paper has been crowded out
of house and home this week and
for the past month, for that matter,
with all sorts of advertising and
consequently our news service has
been bum, but there is one thing
that you must remember, and that
is that the ads read good to us and
we are badly in need of the reve
nue. Men are coining here every day
who are free to say that they are
as surprised as people can be at
the crops this county has been
growing for the past three years.
They exclaim that Oklahoma and
Texas are even behind us and that
we have a farming country equal
to any thing they know of. They
are spreading the good news back
home when they return and thus
we are gradually getting our coun

call at the office and make them
selves at home. The secretary of

the county. Call at the office of
the Tucumcari commercial club

Hon. N. V. Gallegos has intro
duced a bill in the House of Ine As

there is any help that we can give
Gallegos we should do it now and
if we don't do it we should not reg

been disposed of by the legislature.
So far as the Thaw case is con.
cened this paper thinks there is no
question but that he is crazy, he
was a born lunatic, and the quicker
the breed is stopped the better. So
we say if you want our opinion
hang the son of a gun until he is
dead, very dead. If his wife is
young and has been abused which
no doubt she has, put her in a
house of correction and teach her
to wash dishes and make her own
clothes. While there would not be
maybe as much sensation in it
there would be as in the case of
Sam Jones' washwoman, more of
the stern realities of life.
There was a man in town and he
was wondrous wise; he marked a
silver dollar and nave it to his wife;
she went to see the butcher and
blew the hollar in; and 'twasn't
long until the dollar came back
again. He took the coin this time
to and bought a dress lor Jane;
before the week was over it came
home to him again, lie spent it
in his home town fifty times ot
more, but he got it back again and
snent it o'er and o'er. Hut when
he sent the dollar to a mail ordet
store, 'twas gone for goodforever.
He never saw it more. Ex.
