'I lie VnrinnK Crop. rmdprrU anil the Profit llerlscrt From Thrni. Governor Miguel Otero, of New Mexico, has been making a caraful stud- of the great Western question of irrigation. He is a great believer in it, and in a report to the Secretarj of the Interior, under the caption of "Ten acres. What a man can do with a small tract of land "under" Irriga tion," the governor sajs: "Sweet potatoes of most excellent qual ity Jlelil abundantly in all the iallf)g of the central and southern iKirtions of the Territory, and constitute on of the best crops that the farmer can raise, bciau&e the) enable him to realize a good return for his season's work from a very small tract of land, which is an Important con sideration to a farmer anncre but es pecial!) so to one in an irrlgal-on countr. The oil and climate of this rountrj reem to be peculiarly adapted tu I ho gruVMn of the sweet potato; the quallt) of the prod let is full) equal to that of the famous iola toss of New Jirsey, and a fair at erase crop will gie from SCO to 1,000 bushels to the aerc with proper cultivation. They neier sell for Ics In the fall than fl a bushel, and those that are kept into the winter usually bring as much as Si. From this it will be seen that one acre cultivated to sweet potatoes in New Mexico will jield the farmer as much mone as he can hope to realize in a good )ear from eight) acres of corn or wlu.lt in Kansas or Nebraska, and since the results are to be measured b dollars and not b) acres. It w ill be ap parent to an) one that the irrigation farmer, although he ma) not be able to cultivate fields as broad as those of his neighbor In the rain belt, has a better prospect of suc cess and a detldedl) better chance of a bank account at the end of the car. The Crttwlnc; fit A eire tnllle. "The onion is another product that seems so be peculiarly adapted to this section of the country. The large white Spanish onion, which growt to a greater perfection in the Southwest than anjwbere else in the United Slates, affords one of the most profitable crops that can be grown In this Territory, and lequlrcs irrigation to bring ft to perfection On atcqunt of its beau tiful silvery color and its peculiar mild flavor, this onion finds read) sale iu any part of the countr), and alvvavs brings the highest market price. The )ield is about SOO bushels to the acre, under proper cul tivation, and the price at home ranges from ?1 to ti.'iO per bushel. "Celery and asparagus are a'so arti-lrs which are especially adapted to the s;il and climate of this countr), an J a'Uin here a degree of excellence rarcl) found In such articles grown elsewhere. "The Now Mexico eelcr Is far spe-'or to that grown in California, and Is pio nounced b) all who tr) it fullv equal In all 'respects to the famous Kalamazoo product which is noted throughout the countr) for its supenorit). "And when it tomes to aFparagus New Mexico ean fairl) claim to h-atine norlJ." for nowhere else on the American conti nent is there raised as-paragus which ean at all compare with that grown in the x alley of central and southern New Mexiio. In many places there ai'c large quantities of saltpeter in the foil (the American set tlers call it 'alkali,' because It comes to ' the surface, after a rain and makes the ground white, causing It to resemble the alkali of the north). This ankle, which is deleterious to man) kinds of vegetable, is the favorite food of asparagus and obviates the necessit) of applying salt to the ground, as has hten done wherever ,1,1,, i erretable Is grown iu the Eastern or Mid- dl" iates '"' ' .mini.- nllrj. "Au-asaragusbed of one acre will ield, after the third jear. about 200 pounds a day for sixty days, which is as long as it i, wise to cut it; this will bring an aer- age of 10 cents a ,Td during the sea- oon ?e,a;rwornth, ra 'ssstjexs : soon as the were dug An acre of onions will iield r.rt0 bushels, worth nexer less .t, t-.m Jn .,-,. nr r.im m. h relied uiwn to bring at least JWn A man I nerds 2 acres in alfalfa, and 2 in corn or ! oats for his horm and tow, and 2 acres for house lot, orchard, and kitchen gar den. That makes 10 acres ln all, which Is .is much as an man needs to farm for nrofit. and is full as much as the most induMrious man can uiltlati properly. There is an abundance of good land for fruch purposes to be had in all parts ot the Territory Take, for example, the ltio Grande Valley, the oldest portion of the Territory in point of settlement, a section that has been settled for more than 3u0 cars. and jet not one-fourth of ( tbe a.iilnble land in this section of the countrj is under cutthation at the pres ent time Deginnlng a little aboe Ber nalillo and going down to a point a little below fr.au Marcial, we nate one oi tne smoa at the top of the column of the Bas fEf "'T'l lrll League last night, by winning a famous talle. and ling right in what ma properlj be called the agricultural centre of Xew Mexico, a district of about 150 miles in length, and with an average width of about five miles, embracing 70 sections, or 480,000 acres, and yet a care ful writer, who has traieled frequently ocr the district of country ln question, eajs: "If we concede that one-tenth of the land Is now under cultivation, we are making a er liberal estimate." But if we should almost double this ery liberal estimate, we should still bae in tbe dis trict refirred to, about 100,000 acres of unused laud enough to furnish homes and profitable emplojment to -lOd.dOO families, or more than tbe entire present population of the Territory. Aiti'r in IlMit;. "And there is no waste land in this dis trict named: it its all arable and all tilla ble and needs only the application of wa ter to maku it as preductive as the best Jand In anj part of the jorld. The Rio firandc -arrlcs water inough for the cultl lation nt the whole of this tract without encroaching in the loast upon th rights of those who lne farther down the river. True, theie would not be water enough under th'. stem of Irrigation at present iu use a sjstem that was adopted 300 jears ago, when econoin ln the use of wa ter was something wholl) unknown and totall) unecessary, and under which the water wasted is at least fle times as much In quantity as the water used but It is not to bo supposed that this system will continue maay ears longer. Modern sys tems of irrigatlor are btiug introduced in all oibir tretions of tbe country where farming la dcre by Irrigation.

But the specialist in the detection of crime, Sherlock Holme:,. is a man who reads clues, as the Indian reads a trail. Every Etep he takes is a step to success. It's much the same wav in the detec tion of disease. While the amateur is blundering along over misleading symp toms, the specialist goes right to the real cause and puts an arresting hand upon the disease. It is in such a -way that Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief consulting physi cian to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. Y succeeds in hunting out and arresting diseases, where the less experienced practitioners fail. More than thirty j ears of special study and experience liave enabled Dr. Pierce to read symptoms as easilyand as trulyas the Indian reads a trail which is without a hint for a less acute vision than his. Any sick person can consult Dr. Pierce by letter absolutely without charge. Each letter is read in private and an swered in private. Its contents are held as sacredly confidential. It is answered with fatherly feeling as well as medical skill and the reply is sent sealed in a perfectly plain envelope, that there may be no third party to the correspondence. Thousands hae taken the first step to health by writing to Dr. Pierce. No writer e er regretted writing. Ninety eight iu every hundred treated have been posithely cured.

Albert Saleia ar med in town jesterdaj. lis has come here to rest and rtcoer entitely, before lbs s;a son at the -Metropolitan Opera House begins, from a slight attack of bronchitis, which was the result of his trawls with the com panj on the road. Jlr. Van Dyke preceded him earlier in the week. Mr. Sallez has also before him the impor tant tzsk of training for a duel to which 1-e was challenged In Ho.ton b Maurice De Xcvers. who has been- traveling this year with the same company. The contest, ac cording to present arrangements will take place this spring In Paris, and it is the re mit of a tow among the opera singers which has not oeen equaled since the fa mous quarrel between Jean De Reszk; and Madame Nordica. M.

' It is a fact that Jean De Reszke's friends baie obsened with rjgret that he came hcre Presumabl to carry on a propaganda ',1,? affa'ir'ecept 'theng -. - t0? Then, the climax came. A reporter calling to interview Edward De Reszke among other singers, was referred to M. De Severs. The latter expressed the opinion nat " '"We was a Eood one, barring the fact that it contained no tenor. As MM. Van Dyke, Saleza, Aharez, Dip pel, and Eallgnac make a list that includes all the famous tenors on the stage today, excepting Jean De Reszke, this was regard ed as a surprising statement. The excite ment that followed was of the furious nat ure which could exist only in an opera com pany. M. Saleza finally forbade De Nevefs sex to address him in public or expect him to notice his existence In any way. De Ne- ers' answer was that his seconds would call on him in March in Paris.

Additional Appropriations NeeuedJis' rthe Conintl.alonera. for the Con. traction of a Sew Pnbllc School Building- and for the' Maintenance of the Otace of the Surveyor. The urgency deficiency estimates, which have been nt to the Secretary of the Treasury by the District Commissioners In clude but two items this yea'r, 'but they are considered very Important by the depart ments to which they refer. The additional appropriation of $6,000 to be used In the construction of the Lovejoy School is the largest of the two items. The last Congress appropriated $30,000 to be used to build this school, but when the bids for materials were opened it was found that the prices bad increased so much during tbe year that the District would be unable to construct the school on the plans prepared .by Con-' gress for the amount appropriated. This building is, perhaps, needed as much as any of the school buildings in the city The present structure Is one of "tbe oldest In the city and has been declaredseveral times unfitted for the purpose, for which it Is used. The progress in the construction of schools and the facilities offered tor studies In the new buildings have left this old structure a long way behind, and for several years the Trustees of the Public Schools and the Commissioners haveYou'ght to have it replacedby a modern structure. Their efforts were without effect, how ever, until the last session of the Tifty flfth Congress when a bill was passed, giv ing the municipal authorities tbe power to ue $30,000 for this purpose. It I? not believed that the Commissioners wfl! have any difficulty in securing the addition asked, as Congress is fully advised of the necessity for the money. The second Item calls for less money, but it is probably of more direct im portance than the first. The amount in this instance is $2,000, and is to be used in carrving on the work of the Surveyor's Office. Unless the appropriation is made, Captain Beach has stated that the office will not be able to operate for about three months of th; year. The force of this office has only included one field, party for making survejs for a "number of years. The work of making the necessary Improve ments in the city tnli )ear has required more men than Congress provided for. In order that the wcrk might not fall behind tco much. Captain Dcach ordered that an additional field party be employed. The money available for the use of the Sur veyor is $5,000, and this will b exhausted in about three months. The office has bjej behind In Its work for almost a month ever since the appropriation became available and the Commissioners hate tried to llnd a means whereby the trouble eould be reme died. The only wu as M requesting the additional appropriation and this has been done. "Unles ne get the appropriation, the SurCurs force will quit wcrk about the 1st of March," Commissioner Ileach said jesterdar afternoon. "That will be a terl oushinarancc to builders and to the class). Scatlon of the Engineer Commissioner's work. The Office of the Suriccr ii one of the most important under mj charge and it is tery necessary that it should be main tained. It cannot do the work with the force provided, by Congress. On my own respons'bliitj I directed the Increase of the force which was made earlyiu the jcar. The Sunejcr cannot get along without two field parties and we are compelled to have the surveys made as soon as possible. "Suppote a man wanted to build a house and called on the Survejor to define his lot. The matter could not be attended to for o month at present and If we hae tc shut up shop building operations will be stepped. The work In the office has in creased to an enormous extent in the past few years, a fact which shows that'the peo ple of the city ara becoming more careful ln constructing their homes. The) tall on the Sureor to define the boundaries of their property. The Surveyor makes it and the lot is proper) placid on the records. This is only one of the.reu'mus.wh) lie of fice should not be closed. There Is much work to be done and more mous) I nec essary for this." The Surveyor's opinion of the necesltj for the appropriation and an increase in the force next year Is as follows: 'The Washington of today differs from the straggling tillage of fifty or sixty jears ago. Should not. then, the Suncyor's OfHce grow, as well as the city? "In many respects the force and means aallable now are the same as then.- I recommend that sufficient money be ap propriated to provide, in addition to the special matters already referred to, two complete field parties of four men ca:b. with two teams, and means within the discretionary use of tbe Commissioners, to pay for a third complete field party for the busier part of the year, whenever need ed. I also recommend that the office ot Second Assistant Survc)or, at Ji.COO per annum, be created, tbe Incumbent to haie general charge of tbe suburban division of the office work, now necessarily assuming large proportions because of the near com pletion of the whole street extension p'an and the consequent transfer to this office of permanent records of the data produced by the street extension department and the necessary Interpretation of those plans on the ground. This division of the work will doubtless grow cry rapidly from now on indefinite!)." SEABOAED AIR LINE FLANS. Carl) Proapect of Trains BetiTern New York sud Klorida. BALTIMORE.

Then, why not form a good habit, a habit which will counteract tbe many bad ones, in other words-contract the un fashionable habit of being always Tvell. The best health habit to get into Is to have and keep a vigorous stomach: if you havo a healthy digestion you can drink your beloved coffee, smoke your favorite brand of tobacco, with little or no harm: the mischief begins when these things are forced upon the faithful stomach, without any assistance. Form the habit of taking after meals some harmless "but efficient digestive which will relieve the stomach ot so much extra work. Nature furnishes us with such digestives add when they arc combined in such .a pleasant preparation as -Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, they give the overworked stomach Just the necessary assistance to secure per fect digestion without any of the harmful effects of cathartics and similar drugs. The habit of taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals is as necessary to the weak stomach as foor itself, and Indeed to get the benefit fiom food eaten, nothing better and certainly nothing safer can be used. Many families consider Stuart's Tablets as essential In the house as knives and forks. They consist entirely of natural digestive p.-inciples without thee effect or character istics of drugs; they have no cathartic action, but simply go to work on the food eaten and digest It. Take Into account your bad habits and the expense they entail and then invest fifty cents In a box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and see if your digestion for the next month is not vastly Improved. Ask the clerk in any drug store the name ot the most successful and popular stomach remedy and he will say Stuart s.
