M. B. Goldenberg
Last Sunday night the store of
the M. B. Goldenberg Co. was
burglarized, and two boxes of
pocket knives, several razors and
a half dozen six-shooters were
stolen. There was quite a stir
made among our oflicials and citi
zens Monday morning in an effort
to apprehend the thieves; search
was made about the railroad yards
and in box cars and elsewhere to
find their hiding places, but no
discoveries wore made. Tucum
cari has had a flood tide of hobos
for the past sixty days. It is so
far between jumps over the Rock
Island through this section of New
Mexfcb that hungor makes a stop
over for many of the motley crew
at this place. There has been Con
siderable thievery here lately and a
night watchman is badly needed.
One G. Myer was arrested at
Santa Rosa Thursday night and
had some of the stolen property in
his possession. Sheriff Street
brought him to Tucumcari yester
day and lodged him securely in the
Elliott Caught His Men.

Take Out Your Occupation License.
All persons who desire to do
business in Quay county must have
an occupation license. Sec. 4499
Compiled Laws of 1897 as amend
ed by acts of 1901 are plain on this
subject. We quote the act as fol
lows: "Any person, firm or corpor
ation who shall engage in or carry
on any business or avocation for
which a license is required without
having paid said tax, shall be re

The Tucumcari Millinery Parlors
are wide open today and in full
dress. It is full of pretty women
and pretty things for women to
wear. And, there is Roman Punch,
a whole bowl full, and it looks
good, and they don't sell it, think
of that. If men only wore wo
men's hats they would be in on the
punch. Men do wear punch
though, but it is generally sold
when they do. And they will many
of them be wise td the price of up-to-date
millinery when the cash
balance is made tonight.
for Money Crop.
We are informed by E. H. Full
wood that V. F. Buchanan, presi
dent of the First National Bank of
this city, has offered those who
will plant broom corn a very liber
al proposition. To those who may
want to borrow money on the crop
he offers to loan $2.50 an acre when
the crop is up and a good stand;
$2. 50 an acre when cultivation is
finished; $2.50 an acre when ready
to harvest. Mr. Fullwood has
1000 acres pledged, so if all these
people want to borrow money as
suggested by our banker, he will
have to set aside $7,500.00. This
is a spirit, however, that the far
mers should appreciate on the part
of Mr. Buchanan, who so liberally
offers to help them encourage the
broom industry. We are further
informed that a market is offered
for all the brooms that Quay coun
ty can produce right here in Tu
cumcari. What a Boy Can't Do.
A boy should remember that he
can't smoke cigarettes and succeed.
He must remember that he can't
drink whiskey and succeed.
It won't do. He may wonder
why it is that there are grown men
whom he knows who can do these
things but if he will watch them
and keep his eyes on them for a
long enough time he will see that
they can't succeed either.
A boy should get it through his
head that smoking never made a
man of any one. He must get it
through his head that whiskey will
poison him, and debase him if he
drinks enough of it. He must re
member that he can be sober and
clean, and will be a better citizen,
and will enjoy better health.
The Yellow Jacket makes some
fun a it goes along, but it also
knows that there is a serious side
to life and it knows that if the
bright boys of the country will cut
out and leave off bad and useless
habits that the next generation will
be stronger and better.-Yellow
