KEEK YOUR EYE ON CARLSBAD" SLOGAN OF CARLSBAD BUNCH Carlsbad Project Enters on Its With Positive Assurance of the Beautiful" Is Booming Development Period. Snerlol Carrctpondcne la Morning Journal Carlsbad, N. M., Nov. 12. 1909. Keep your eye oil Carlsbad" is the miggestive slogun which appears on the business card of a well known Carlsbad farmer. This particular farmer is a land owner, a real estate man, a booster. He is also long head ed and far sighted and he has a small fortune right around the corner which nothing on earth save an earthquake or sudden death can take away from him; for happens to own land un der the Carlsbad project of the Nat ional Reclamation service. This is pretty strong talk; for irrigation pro jects are not always successful; there are such things as water shortages and other difficulties. Carlsbad has known all of these bad things. Under the old private irrigation system, disaster followed disaster in rapid succession and it is small wonder that there are a few, a very few, of the old, old timers who still shake their heads and look for the worst to happen. But Carlsbad is one of the districts of the west where the worst is over. It has happened. The chapter of dis aster is closed and the new era has opened. It is, in fact, wide open and one can farly hear the humming of the new maehlneery of the period of progress. The season Just closed has demonstrated once and for all tho complete adequacy and the ultimate success of the Carlsbad projeet. The water supply is ample. The system Is working smoothly; acre after acre of rich land is being brought under cultivation. Orchard after orchard is being planted. Deal after deal shows a constant and rapid upward trend of land prices. The fact is that Carls bad and the Carlsbad district have the goods, absolutely guaranteed and ready to deliver and delivery is being made and during the coming year is going to be made in constantly In creasing quantity. C. H. McLenathen, who is president of the Pecos Waters Users' association, and also president of the Commercial Club, Francis O. Tracy, A. M. Hove, secretary of the Water Users, asso ciation, C. M. Richards, Dr. V. F. Doepp, F. I,. Dearborn, C. It. Price there are a couple of dozen other men, too numerous to mention, but always on the Job in this town which used to be sleepy but Isn't any more. They are live, energetic boosters. Not boosters who talk alone, but the kind of men who get out and do things. They are getting results. Carlsbad is wide awake and tho outlook for this towns, one of the oldest in the Peons valley is as bright and possibly u lit tle brighter than it has ever been, even in the halcyon days when it was the. homo of the only modern irrigation project in the west. Not satisfied with having put the Carlsbad project of 2, 000 acres into the front rank of prosperity the Carls bad boosters are marching right along and now propose that the government shall extend the project. The pro posal. is a very reasonable one. There is plenty of water, the government has already expe'nded a large amount of money there and with the expenditure of a comparatively small additional amount, will be able to greatly extend the acreage, recinir-tvr land which as it now appears, rammt be reclaimed in nnv other way. Therefore, since it should be done the Carlsbad people have started out to get It done and they have a very good prospect for success. Secretary of the Interior Halllnaer has notified the Water Us ers' association that he is sufficiently interested to look into the thing per sonally. He Is coming to Carlsbad as the last stdp In his southwestern trip to go over tho situation thoroughly. The very best things are hopea for from this trip, of thP Secretary. The extension of the project will mean a great deal for Carlsbad. But even should the proposed extension be turned down flat the prosperity oi this town Is absolutely assured. There Is no richer land on earth than that under the Carlsbad project. The products of the land prove. Land that will produce prize peaches and prize cotton in the same field is pretty fair and to own. This Is being prov en bv the keen desire of people now coming Into the southwest country to own the land. The past year has seen a number of important nales and oth ers of even greater magnitude are pending. It is very easy now to lore seP the time when every acre of land under the Carlsbad projeet will be in cultivation, when it will be producing every variety of fruit known to the temperate zone, sav(. only tho citrus fruits, when it will be giving great yields of alfalfa and grain and cotton. For a town that has been called a dead one the prospect is pretty bright. It has been rumored that Carlsbad is to have a new railroad line crossing southern New Mexico to a connection with the Santa Fe at Rincón. A new railroad would help, but Carlsbad does not really need it us many other lew Mexico districts do, for the stuff raised here is of such high grade that it Is in eager demand in every market and will sell at a profit in spite, of freight rate. THE SriRIT OF OPTIMIST TAKKS FIRM IIOIjP There is a spirit of optimism abroad In Carlsbad that I seontagious. Your correspondent talked with more than thirty of the business men. bankers, professional men, real estate men, merchants. Each and every one at some time during the conversation aid "Watch Carlsbad Grow," or "Keep your eye on Carlsbad." These Prevention of Rheumatism Is one of the most pre ventable of diseases and he who neg lerts to see that hts body is properly excreting the reruse material that is constantly accumulating will surely utter when the cold winter winds commence. The Electric light bath has proven "self one of the foremost and most successful treatments for this painful disease. All up-to-date physicians recommend It. These baths will do as much as the most renowned springs cao do and in some cases they have BRONSON SANITARIUM 224 West Central (Upstairs) First Year of Real Activity Complete Success; "Carlsbad Under Influence of New men are just ordinary, .successful American business men, with ordinary brains. They have a sure thing and know It and that is about the sum to tal of the proposition. The hotels, which are exceptionally good for a town of the population, are well filled all the time. During the recent term of court here it was difficult to obtain a room, although the Echlit hotel is one of the largest in New Mexico and the same management operates an other one, almost as large. Land buy ers and prospectors are coming in ev ery day, looking over the country, ex amining the project an din a very large majority of cases, becoming per. manently interested. It is one of the most encouraging prospects, in New Mexico, this rosy outlook before Carls bad. Tho town itself is a pleasant place to live. Although there Is considera ble new building going on and in im mediate prospect the town has the air of settled conditions; ti has perhaps more of the eastern farming town look than any other placo in New Mexico. The streets aro wide and shade by giant trees; the stores arc large, well stocked and attractive. All lines of business are represented and from the way they talk, every man in town is making money, from the professional men to the barbers. One eminent professional man told me about it farm he ownes under the project. He bought it for a song. He seems to think the land is worth more than u hat full of diamonds, nnd It probabbly Is. A lawyer who has plenty of prac tice and a comfortable income, has olio chief ambition and that is to own Just a little more land under the project. That is the most attractive feature of conditions here. Every man in town has faith in the propect. It is absolutely convincing in Its combined Influence. No man can stay in Carlsbad and meet the business men without wanting to get hold of a piece of land. A trln through the lands under the project is even more convincing than what the people of Carlsbad have to say. There is the evidence or revival and advancement everywhere. New farm buildings are going up. Fields which have been dusty for years are green; barns are full, young orchards trl mand well kept nre appearing on every hand. It is cheering and more or less amazing to one familiar with this country a few years ago. Tour corespondent visited the scene of tho Carlsbad project several years ago, just at the time the government had concluded to take over the project. It was pitiful. The men who owned land had been reduced almost to dispair. They had been fighting, some of them for years. They had apparently lost the very last round of the fight and there was nothing to do but quit. Rut with the pluck that Is characteristic of the west, they held on; at least some of them did, and those who held on aro the men who are to be envied today. Some of thorn tell you that they are "land poor." and five years ago they told It to you with tears In their eyes. Now they tell it with a twinkle and suggestive of a fat bank roll in progress. A visit down here Is a revelation to the average man from the eastern or central states, and even to those of us who live in Central New Mexico. Just now in the beginning of November, when we are getting our first hard frosts and It Is mighty uncomfortable to get out of bed In the morning, the Carlsbad man gets nn at sunrise in his shirt sleeves an dif he happens to have one. takes a look at his flower garden. The difference in altitude has its influence and at this time of year it is a very pleasant one. The expert farmer who cares to do so, can, by proper rotation of crops keep his land busy here the year around. If he does not care to do anything else he can keep stock on his alfalfa fields right through the winter and make money doinir it. Conditions in Carlsbad are very pleasant. The town Is well supplied with utilities by a public utilities com. pany which controls the electric light an dpoweV plant, water works and tel ephone line, which now has connec tion not only with the Pecos valley towns but with the entire plains coun try. It will soon have connection witn Albuquerque and the entire territory and the wist. There are splendid schools, good churches, well supported all of the more prominent secret so cieties nnd fraternul orders are rep resented nnd tho people are of the kind with whom it is good to live. The Carlsbad ol today is an eye opener, full fledged boom, but a boom that cannot re act because u will be found ed on the solid foundation of Irrigated land with a water supply that cannot fail. HORSE SHOW WINDS UP SUCCESSFUL SEASON New York, Nov. 13. The national horse show closed its twenty-fifth and most successful season at Madison Square Garden tonight with a parade of draught horses and final exhibits and awards in the championship classes for harness horses and hunt ers. Judge William H. Moore swelled his unprecedented total of winnings to twenty-two first when his bay geld ings, Robin Hood and Wallen-stein took another blue ribbon in the class for pairs in harness horses over fif teen hands high. Alfred G. Vanderbilt retrieved In Rheumatism proven themselves far superior to them. A trial will convince the most skeptical that they are all that Is claimed for them and more.

Mrs. Ava Wil ling Astor, who obtained it divorce a few days ago from Colonel John Jacob Astor, suffered a slight nervous col fcipse today but was well enough luter to leave for the country, where she will rest for several duys. Through a friend she issued a statement tonight regarding her plans as follows : "I expect to stay in the country for two or three weeks and shall then gull for England, where I have left my little girl, Alice. I probably shall not remain In England, for I am an American and so is my daughter." Muddy Enough. "Did you ever try mud baths?" "Pretty nenrly; they've been mon keying with the water pipes on our street for several weeks." Boston Herald. TO THE FRONT Stock of Domestic Becoming Smaller on Boston Market; Fair Business in Territories Being Done, With the stock of domestic wool be coming still smaller on the local mar ket, interest in the new clips of Aus tralia and South America Is steadily coming to the front, says the Boston Commercial Bulletin. However, there Is still a fair business being done here on territory and fleece wools, consid ering the comparatively low state of suplica available. In some qtiartert it Is estimated that the week's trans actions total fully 5,000,000 pounds which others more conservative ir their estimates, place the activity a' about a, 500, 000 to 3,0u0,0u0 pounds.Ai a mutter of fact, the movement o' wool Is only moderate, for the buyer are mostly confined to representative! of the smaller mills. The larger eon sumers nre well stocked with raw ma terlal for some time although th( prediction Is advanced that anothe spurt in the market will take plací between now nnd the first of tho new year. That the large manufacturers or well as some of the less Importun ónos nre well stocked on wool is teBtl tied to by the unusually heavy quan titles of raw material in warehouses Dealers claim that of all the wool ir bonded warehouses which Is taxing th, Btoruge capacity to tht. utmost, from 75 to 90 per cent is owned by manu facturers. In ordinary warehouses 1' is nlmost Impossible to obtain room for the storage of woo! In quantity. While the above shows that there is considerable wool unconsiimei' though owned by the mills It Is con tended by some of the most astute dealers In the world that all the rav material from America, Australia anr1 other producing countries will be needed to take care of the increasing demand. Now mills are being ercctec1 In this country for which wool will b, required. Furthermore, cotton on th extreme price level now current It not particularly attractive to manufac turers. It Is impossible to find a denier In Boston who believes that the market will suffer any material decline In vnlues for months. Every merchant is looking forward to a contlnuatior of present prices although all believe that a lower level In Australia woul' be a safer one. With a firm bellei In a maintenance of existing condi tions, every house In the trade Is hold Ing for top prices and concessions ar out of the question. The manufactur er who bids even a fraction under the asking price Is permitted to go away without obtaining the desireu supplies In several Instances, the raw material is later obtained by the payment of the dealers' price. In one recent case thlr was particularly true, a manufacturer who offered Í4V4 cents on Ohio quar ter-blood last week without success having Just paid the asking price of 3 cents on 100,000 pounds, thus estab lishing a new high figure for that grade. The demand is fairly well dis tributed e.mong the available orreringi- of territory wool, such as Oregon, Wyoming and New Mexico. Idaho and Utah stock have been exhausted for some tirite, and Montana fleeces are pretty well cleaned up with one or two exceptions. New Mexican I reaching a lower point every week, for while the sales are not Individual ly heavy the aggregate foots up quite substantially. Wyoming wool in the original bpgs is still moving fairly well on a basis of 25 to 27 cents. It is reported that the remaining supply of this wool ranges between S. 000,000 and 2.500, 000 pounds. Further moderate trans actions in original bags of Montana are told of with prices still at 27 to 28 cents. For fine medium and half blood New Mexican up to 25 cents and even 2 cents in some casca, is being paid. Fine staple Oregon Is also mov ing with moderate success on a grease basis of 25 to 26 cents. Scoured wools are having a fair call, with sales tak ing place at a range of 88 to 72 cents for fine medium to fine. A little Northern California Is moving at about 2 to it cents In the greae. TVxmk wool la still exciting the Inter est of manufacturers. b::t ih - ore not willing to pay asking prices so no , INTEREST III FOREIGN WOOL GUPS COMES transactions of Importance are taking place. In the fleece division of the market there Is a moderate activity, princi pally In quarter-blood, which grade hag been sought by the inlll& for the pust two weeks. Bids had not been satisfactory to holders until this week when 35 cents was offered and accepted on Ohio quarter-blood, while 34 cents was realized on Michigan quarters. The interest now centers, on this grade. Wltih 35 cents paid lit Is believed In some houses that a higher figure will be obtainable later on when heavy weight requirements nre more Insistent. Practically nil grade,, of Australian wool from crossbred 40s up to merino "Us are Belling in a small way at full previous rates, but manufacturers seem to want most the grades that are In smallest supply, such ns f0s, und 50-SSc. Consumers are buying these wools only when an unimportant quantity of gome depleted grade Is de sired for the majority of manufac tures have a fairly substantial amount of Australian wool held in bonds' un til needed. The latest advices from the far west state that no contracting for 1910 ter ritory clips has been done during the past week. It Is understood that the sheepmen of the Soda Springs district of Idaho are asking up to 25 cents a pound for their wool.s, a figure that Is rather discouraging to eastern dealers. The growers of Montana are said to be opposed to selling wool on the sheep's bark before the first of January, but liter that timo they may sell their -Mpn If satisfactory prices are offered. Tho few rumainiiig lots of 1HII9 fleeces in Ohio aro now held at 38 to 40 cents for fine und medium washed wools and at 33 to 35 cents for round 'ota of unwashed wool.s. IN BARBAROUS EL PASO (El Paso Times). The afternoon paper betrayed Its inora ace of art and its disregard of 'ruth yesterday in an article with a Mazing red head: "Nude in Art Too Much for Kl Paso, Pictures of Worn n Without Clothes No Longer Grace he Walls. Shocked Too Many i'eo lo," und went on to Ignoniiitly de icrlbo or grossly misrepresent the aiming entitled, "Cupid Guides," and tlso to misrepresent the culture and irtlstlc temperament and the modesty f El Puso womanhood by declaring 'hat the painting was removed from he art exhibit because "women vlBi ora, more or less backed by their hus bands," demanded that it be taken lown. In the first place, the figures do Meted are not nude. In the second nluce, that the painting has high urtis. flc merit is attested by the fact that it was awarded third prize at the World's Fair in St. Iritis: first prize it Kansas City, Kas.; first prize at Teft'erson City, Mo.: second prize at New Orleans, and first prize at Alex andria, at all of which places It was exhibited In competition with works of the world's most famous artists. The artist Is Mrs. Frank S. .Meyer, one of tho most devotedly pious wo men we have ever known, pure minded and modest. Hhe came to El Paso some months ago ta make her home. 'fr husband and. nr. brothers are argely interested in business enter Tises in the city and the county. All 're public spirited enterprising, cul 'ured peorle of wealth. It was In 'coping with this public spirit of her neople that she felt It n duty to aid In helping make the El Paso fair n success and loaned the painting for which oilers of thousands of dollars have been repeatedly refused, to the irt department of the fair. It is hardly possible that ft painting that has been admired by millions of cultured people and won such a lisi of prizes could fail of appreciation in El Paso, nor Is it probable that it should havo been removed from the ixhlbit, although tho ulternoon paper declares that it was, and this is to charge Indirectly provincialism und irurleney against the people of El Paso. A few lessons In art might possibly nnble our contemporary to know "tho tude in art" when it sees It and ena ble it to know a painting of merit vhen It runs up on It. It. also might ave It front exposing the nudity ot its fiioianee. Finds Aviation Iasy. Now York. Nov. 12.
