With all otir systems of IrrlpatloU, whether by
r by pump and may they continue to increase in
ber and efficiency by muliiplli alien rather than hy
tlon; and with all possible growth of the Campbell iliy
larming system which The. Citizen expects to see
glorious success In every pnrt of the territory with both
of. these at tho fullest limit of their possibilities, New
.Mexico niURt In the future, ns now and as in the pant, find
her chief industries to lie in the stock business.
Nature has so eminently qualified this territory by
location and climate for slock breeding, whether that
Mock bo cattle, sheep, horses or goats, that breeding of
stock will bo New Mexico's leading industry for all
time. Where else ran sheep men nse more than 100 per
cent yearly? Yet one of the leading sheep men of the
trrltory writes to a friend In this city that tho increase
of his flock, this year, will reach 114 per rent. Every
year better care is being taken in the handling of stock,
and the Improvement in this direction will keep pace with
ttnnroved facilities for cultivation of food.
Markets for feeder", alike in cattle and sheep, are at
our very doors. North, east and south of New Mexico
but especially north and ast tho ability to feed largely
exceeds the ability to produce; and every year the mar
ket in those sections is increasing its demands for New
.Mexico feeding stock. Nor is there any possibility that
these demands will ever become less than they are at
In Colorado with the increase of tho beet Industry
there is a rapidly increasing demand for stock
to fatten upon the beet products. In oth'-r parts
of Colorado, the Canada, field pea has bee,, In
troduced and successfully established. In six h serious
the demand for sheep to fatten upon the pens keeps con
. stantly ahead of possible supply. So close to us as the
San Luis valley, is an illustration. In that vullc y alone,
according to a bulletin issued by tho Agricultural de
partment at Washington, 1,000,000 sheep can yearly be
prepared for market upon the valley's pea crop. Nor can
tho demand for cattle, by any possibility be reduced.
Wyoming, Montana. Kansas, Nebraska, not to go further
from home, produce vast food crops for which they can
not produce animal consumption. They must buy feeders,
and New MeMeo offers the nearest and best field fur pur-
For the pit-sent season, prospects were never better
in this territory. Water is abundant, pasturage is ex
cellent, stock of all kinds came out of the winter in ex
cellent condition, and the percentage of loss has been
scarcely more than nominal while the percent a i;-! of gain
has been almost phenominal.
Add to the, foregoing f.u-is tli.it. the prices for w.uH,
BhccD and catti'n show no indication of decline, and one
cannot but predict lhat tho year lUnfi. barring sun;
era! and imnrol.able calamity, will lirms " 'w
-1 a greater prosperity than ui-a last year witne.-M-r
pessimist will have to have this territory this y
confess himself ashamed to look bounteous! nature
All the babies, numbering some half a liu.uli v I, lett
by the stork in the improvised camps in Golden Cite park
and on the Mission hills while San Francisco burned,
have been carefully listed by a coterie of physicians and
Belentists, and the development of the character of each
is to be carefully watched for the effects of prenatal in
fluence. "We have the names and probable addresses of an
the parents," said a prominent physician a few days ago.
"and we expect interesting things when the little fellows
begin to develop Individuality. The shock of the terrible
, earthquake and the fireat fire that followed will surely,
through Its effect upon the mother at the time, have some
peculiar effect upon the child.
"I personally know of a youngster whose mother,
previous to his birth, went through three fires, the hotel
and boarding houses in which she lived burning out.
When that little fellow came Into the world he was a
natural-born incendiary, and his first act as a toddler was
to Bet fire to the house. Repeatedly he dragged out
clothes into the yard and set them on fire, and he con
trived to make bonfires In the attic twice. At the age(of
seven ho Is stilt setting fires a natural-born 'firebug.' "
fSfie City Hall
Tho Citizen certainly feels to congratulate the (Hy
council for its wise action, yesterday afternoon, when it
rescinded Its former plan to have two buildings erected
for city purposes. That the city government should have
Insisted upon its original intention, could not result other
wlso than as a public calamity.
Albuquerque will have $30,000 .cash with which to
build a city edifice. That Is a good round sura, and with
it can be constructed a building which will be u credit
not only to this city but to all New Mexico. Besides the
building fund, the city owns valuable, ample and centrally
located lots upon which to place the building. Albuquer
que, therefore, has now the opportunity, which has come
to no other city in this territory, to adorn herself with a
public building which not only Bhall meet the needs of
her municipal life, but shall be proportionate to the de
tuanda upon the Duke City, as the metropolis of the ter
ritory. This can be ddue with one building. It would be
Impossible to do It with two.
..Now let the architects get busy, and let them Rive
us tho most attractive building, wjthin and without, which
their skill and taste can design for the money.
According to advice from New York it can no loiig
r be .said that tho only w heel tho modern young woman
knows anything about Is tho bicycle, 1 it one depart
ment of Teachers' college, i branch of Columbia univer
sity, N. V., the students are actually taught to spin and
weave, just as their great-grandmothers did it, from the
first handling of the flax to the weaving of the cloth.
Their machinery Is not of a perfected modern type,
either, but of the same simple uort that their fort-mothers
used. The work proves very fascinating and sceral of
the young women have announced their Intention of
having some loomu of their own. And while none of
them have said uytblng about weaving their own doilies.
It is 'certain that now wlien the newest and must ex
pensive rage is for hand-woven oluth, and when all the
ladles who can afford it, from tho president's wife !wn.
are ordering hand-woven silks and linens for their sum
mer wardrobes, whether they choose to do it or pot, the
Columbia young women "could if they would."
Citizen acknowledges tho . placing upon its
a first copy of the Hai bnriim. Us goneology is
tiuid to be 'Son of the Desert, offspring of tho Sunshine
and the Silence. ' Like many anollu r offspring it does
not rest inble either progeioiur. The late "Sunshine"
was rather a socio; y ojgan, while in judge from the first
number the Barbarian is not particularly uitlicted with
any Impediment In lis specc'i. Tho niis!,,u of (be Bar
barian is to search for its birthright. C;pl. Mar.-yal of
tho Kngllsh navy, wrote among otheis a novel named
"Japhelh in Search of his Father." Though the young
man bad but one clue, his own uose, he ultimately landed
the old man ail right. The Oitien does not know the
clue to which the Barbarian is trurftiug in .its seiuch for
1t birthright, neither does it know exactly what that
birthright is mpismed to be; but such want of knowledge
dix not abate The Citizen's desire that the Barbarian
may come to its own nor le disappointed when Unit own
Jias been secured.

Immigration hns continued heavy to the valley. The
majority of settlers have located In the artesian district
or taken claims in Roosevelt county along the Pecos Val
ley line?. The Campbell system of dry farming has been
found successful there, and next year a host of new set
tlers will try their hand at this method.

The sudden acquisition of unaccustomed wealth is re
sponsible for. many strange freaks on the part of tho new
ly enriched. Thus, a Durham collier, after Inheriting the
sum of 20,000 pounds from nn uncle who had emigrated to
Australia, purchased a male and female elephant from a
traveling menagerie, had a large and gaudy carriage built
to which lie harnessed them, and then drove about with
his wife and children till stopped by the police. He spent
his money in six months, chiefly at race meetings and Is
now once more a humblV collier, glad of the comparative
ly scanty wages that he receives each week from the
clerk in the pay shed.
The case of a once popular French novelist is still
remembered in Pari K.in literary circles. Heaping a har
vest from two or three capital books that took nil Paris
hy storm, the author purchased a palace In Italy, a villa
on the Rivera, a castle In Scotla.id -and a town hom e en
the Champs Elysees. It seemed his ambition to pos-ess
as many residences as a prince of tho blood. Although all
h"so properties were heavily mortgaged the smash . unit'
within a year, and the'iiovelist, loaded with debt -j that he
wu'.il.l never be able to repay, calmly disappeared, and
was anerwnrd recognized as an Arab ttader a. id bird ot
iiiLiiiy caravans plying b iween Harrar and .lib.ii.l.
1 ne novelist, who had adopted a suitable Aral) nr.me,
stood high In the favor of the Emperor Meuelik. Con
sumption cut short a Career that for variety and advon
tine far exceeded any romance that the noveli.-t himself
had ever penned, .ays Tit-Jtits.
Another short-lived capitalist was an Aimiican who,
inheriting a large fortune on the death of bin father, a
San Francisco magnate, purchased a fine st- am yacht
provisioned it with the costliest eatables and wines that
money could buy, and, inviting a bevy of burlesque act
resses and other gay fr.euds to accompany him, set out
for a cruise in the Pacific. Ship, owner, guests and crew
were destined never to reach port again.
ine essei, it was surmised, nad been turned into a
lloating Monte Carlo. Twice the yacht was lighted steel
ing an erratic course that must have taken It far away
from the track of the regular Pacific services. On each
occasion the captain and officers of the passing vessel
came near enough to distinguish something of the life
that was being led on board. A single seaman stood on
the bridge, while the decks were given over to the witless
antics of a throng of men and women, who held out
champagne bottles to the astonished observers and shouted
impudent messages. This was the last 1 hat was ever
seen of the young American and his friend".
Another "freak capitalist" was a Spanish lady o
Badajoz, who, winning -10. 000 in the Mi.-nila lottery, col
lected the money and set out secretly for Paris, leaving
her huhband and children in complete darkness as to her
Eight months lui. r sh" returned to her home penni
less, but accompanied ,y thirty huge trunks, the contents
of which accounted for the vanished thousands.
Cm arriving in Paris she had apparently set, about
spending her money with a will. Clothes of every de
scription and artificial aids to beauty had eaten up the
whole of her fortune. Dresses, costly underwear, corsets,
oots, gloves and hats, all maiked with the names of the
most fashionable makers, represented three-fourths of her
purchases. In the remaining trunks were cosmetics, false
hair, figure improves, face creams, chin straps, cures for
obesity in short, every kind of article advertised by
"beauty specialists" and the quacks who abound in ull big
cities. Beyond being tho best dressed woman in Hadajoz
for several seasons, she had reaped little benefit from her
More extravagant still was the Russian gentleman
who gambled away an inheritance of 6,000,000 roubles
( $:i,000,(s0o) within a year, and was only saved from com
plete disaster by the odd chance that he had papered his
bedroom wall with hundreds of notes. Ho ended by Biv
ing Russian lessons for a small fee in P:ris.
The exploits of tho lato marquis of Anglescy'nre par
alleled and exceeded by those of the son of a wealthy
Hungarian sugar refiner. The young man not only bad
a replica of the Roman coliseum erected on one- of bis
esta-tes, but world himself descend Into the arena, In
imitation of ti.p emperors of old. Dressed as a gladiator
and armed only witli the short Roman thrusting r.word
