WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 14. The long silence of Blood to the Bridles Waite, of Colorado, gives rise to the awful Binpioion that he is afflicted with lockjaw. How serviceable that 150-mile an hour train, proposed by Westinghouse nnd Baldwin, would be to McKinley in airing his presidential boom. The action of the Las Vegas board of education in excluding children nnder seven years of age from the benefits of the public schools of that city is ns in just as it is arbitrary. Why not open a kindergarten? Why not employ some of those Jack son Hole newspaper correspondents as blood detectives at the Holmes "castle" in Chicago f Clearly men capable of manufacturing nn Indian war out of one dead Indian eould make something of themselves if they had tbe Holmes case to work on. Judoino from the fact that 100 or more delegates representing the soveral states are talking free coinage and straight De mocracy in the national capital to-day, it would .appear that the cause of silver isn't doing mnoh "dying out" as far as Democracy is concerned. It is the gold bugs and the Republicans who insist on the "dying out" business. Tnit Republicans of New York didn't sneer very exteusively at the electoral vote of "little Colorado" the clay after the presidential eleotion in 187C, when the three votes of that state would have given the presidency to Tilden in spite of the larceny of the votes of Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina. The time may come again when the Republicans will need Colorado and need it mighty bad. state, and other properties were put up by the Pennsylvania Trust company, of Reading, executor of Joseph C. Wright, deceased. Scarcely 5 per cent on the face value of the properties was realiztd. There were very few bidders. The face value of the twelve mortgages wns i,200, and they brought $120. Five Kansas farms, aggregating 720 acres, were soid. A few years ago they were valued at $25,000. The entire lot brought $2,315. Some of the farms were settled during the boom, then improved and havesince been abandoned. Therefore when we read about wonder ful yields of this or tha product in the Arkansas valley or any other valley we need not go into n furore and try to get options on nil the farm land in sight be fore it goes up to some tremendous price, for it is not going to do anything of the kind, or if it does you can get it next year, when the reaotion conies, for a ridiculously low figure. It must be understood, of course, that all this is in referenoe to lands used for agricultural purposes. Such ns are situ ated near a city, or are reputed to con tain oil or mineral, may have a certain additional speculative value. But no ag ricultural laud can have a farm value ex cept snoh as is based on the actual cash value it yields. To try to give it nny further value is like trying to invent per petual motion or a self-propelling ma chine. It oan not be done. These remarks, says the Pueblo Chief tain, are freely offered in the confident belief that it is directly contrary to the interests of the people, whether in city or country, to hae land held nt high prices. City values are an entirely diff erent thing. If a man does not want to pay $100 a front foot let him walk tint to the suburbs to buy lots it will do him good. But agricultural land ought to be kept down to the lowest possible price, and by the inexorable law of output and intrinsic worth it is going to be. PEESS COMMENT. THE PRICE OF LAND. Just now there is apparent all over the western country, a sort of boom in farm ing lands, such as usually occurs when manufacturing and other employments nre depressed. In consequence laud values have gone up to some extent, but beyond the actual figures at which they can be sold there is an indefinable idea of what is "going to be," just as, in the cities when they are having the good times, there is the exhilarating prospect of what is "going to be." Now let us ask whether it is either probable or desirable that agricultural lands should go up to any fancy prices. We have already seen what beoame of the "going to be" in the cities, and have wit nessed the bright hopes and sanguine predictions which have fabulous values to their suburban lands flattened out like the shapeless, helpless balloon whose gas has escaped. If the idea that any western lan's are "going to be" worth vast sums per aore, either in the near or far future, is well based, it would be logioal to suppose that in an older country we would find farm land held at tremendous figures. But a casual investigation will show that fine farming land, which does not have to pay any ditch assessments or to lie limited in its water Bupply by expansive and non expansive dividing boxes, can be bought in northern Missouri for $25 to $10, in southern Missouri for $15 to $25, and Becond-olaM land at $5 to $7.50 nn acre. In south central Ohio, within the rich belt of the Ohio valley yet away from the cold lake winds, fair land is offered at $12.50, and in Kentucky rolling yet fertile land can be obtained for the same amount which has under it beds of fine eoal five feet thiok. In Tennessee mar velonsly rich land can be had almost for a song. In the New York Sun and Philadelphia Record advertisements have been run ning for many months offering five-aore tracts of good, well drained, partly wood ed farm land in New Jersey for $75, or , $15 an acre, lying right between the two largest oities in America. It is notorious that in New England hundreds of farms, with good houses Bud great splendid barns, have for years been abandoned because they oan neither be old nor rented. The deer have so in creased in numbers that last winter a herd of them trotted through the streets of a Vermont town. Going aoross the ocean, official reports just published in England (how that the ratable value of all the land in England and Wales declined from 39,835,000 in 1870 to 83,66i,000 in 1894, a faot due to agricultural depression. In Germany agrarian agitation ia what ia poshing bi metallism. Before leaving tha subject, it may be noted that in Beading, Pa., a few days ago twelve mortgagee oa Kansas farm lands, a lot of 1C0 acre farms in the same A Just J mice.

This distriot is for tunate in having a judge of unquestioned probity. Albuquerque Citizen. Man Juan Kriilts. Messrs. Darling and Sneed of the Den ver & Rio Grande railway visited the Times Saturday last. Their mission to this county was an important one, that of computing by personal inspection and inquiry the probnbleoutput of fruit for the purpose of considering the question of a reduotion in rates from Durango to the large centers snoh as Denver and Pueblo. The railway men have visited the larger orchard j, and gained all the information possible. They assert that the people should commence the reform movement at this end. First, they say, that the cost of hanlnge to Durango is too much; next, then, the price of the apple box lumber is too great. We can not expect, so they say, the railway to stand the loss oc casioned by the prioe of haulage and boxes, to ont down their rates so as to save the ranchmen in these respects. The railway must be paid a paying prioe as well as tbe freighters, so they assert. Farmington Times. Knights Temnlurs Hates.

NEW ME Valley FFERS unequaled advantages to the farmer, frail grower, live stock raiser, dairyman, bee keener, and to the home-seeker eenerallv. The soil of the Peoos Valley is of high average fertility, and nnder irrigation produces bountiful crops of most of the grasses, grains, vegetables, berries and fruits of the temperate and some of those of the semi tropical zone. In such fruit as the peach, pear, plum, grape, prune, aprioot, neotarine, cherry, quince, etc., the Valley will dispute for the pre-eminence with California; while competent authority pronounoes its upper portions in particular the finest apple country in the world. Enormous yields of such forage crops as alfalfa, sorghum aud Egyptian oorn make the feeding of oattle and sheep and the raising and fattening of hogs a very profitable occupation. The cultivation of oanaigre a tanning material of great value is beooming an important industry in the Peoos Valley, a home market having been afforded 'for all that oan be raised, at a prioe yielding a handsome profit. The climate of the Peoos Valley has no snperior in the United States, being pre-eminently healthful and health restoring. Lands with perpetual water-rights are for sale at low prices and on easy terms. The water supply of the Peoos Valley has no equal in all the arid region for oonstanoy and reliability; and this with the superb olimate, productive soil and the facilities afforded by the railway whioh extends through "the Valley's en tire length, will oaue these lands to enjoy a constant, and at times rapid, increase in value. The recent completion of the Pecos Valley Railway to RoBWell will cause the mire rapid settlement and development of the upper portions of the Valley, inoluding the rioh Feliz seotion. The company has recently purchased many of the older improved farms about Roswell, and has now for sale lands to meet the wants of all raw lands, partially improved lands, as well as farms with houses, orchards and fields of alfalfa and other orops. In the vicinity of Roswell several pieces of land have been divided iuto five nnd ton acres traots, suitnble for orohards and traok farms in connection with subnrban homes. Certain of these traots are being planted to orchards, and will be cultivated and bared for by the company for three yenrs at the end of which period they will be handed over to the purchasers. Write for pamphlet fully describing the terms and conditions on which these Beveral olasstB of traots are sold.
