HlíiEÍEEtlíH NATIONAL HI01I CONGRESS Great Meeting Represented Every State in Union and 15 Foreign Nations. CHICAGO ROYAL HOST New Mexico was Right up on the Front Seat all the Time. The nineteenth annual meeting of the trreat National Irrigation Con grew in the matchless metropolis of the Middle West, was indeed a grand and glorious inspiration and left an impression on the East that will be very bencficital to the West.partieu lary the new Btates of New Mexico and Arizona. It was a fact of general comment that the delegates west of the Mis souri river were possessed of a vast- ly greater degree of the spirit of "I Will," than the cITete easterner, and it wua with intense satisfaction that we noticed how much the east erner ami even the representatives of foreign nations are interested in our marvelous development and progress. It is also very . pleasant to notice how the "Magic of the Pump" has stirred the commercial world, our own Mimbres Valley coming in for its full share of praise. The ninny government experts here, and the Southwestern railroad people, Editor Vandergift of The Earth and people of the reclamation service, join the writer in boosting Deming. Many of the great men in attendance at this congress have Urn in Deming and while there were caught with the editors kodak. None of them are at all anxious to deny it and every me seems ready to verify any statement we make. Bio. Vnndergrift gave a little lec ture in the presence of erhaps a hundred or more delegates and others at the Auditorium hotel last evening in which he said: "I honest ly lielievo that the Doming country hiis greater possibilities and is the best proposition in the United States today. It is suH'rior to any govern ment project," ami the Deming del egate was more than delighted to "second the motion." So far as our observation goes the Deming booklets are the only ones that go into the pockets of those interested in pumping for ir rigation and the tremendously in creasing interest in this matter is easily apparent. The Mimbres Valley is attracting so much attention at present that Pmf, Sammuel Forte! r, Chief of the Irrigation Investigations of the Deportment of Agriculture at Washington, who has address at this meeting and who is an exceedingly well informed man, has asked the writer to give up some of his good films to le made into colored bIhIcb in order that the Department may show to the world whnt pumping for irrigation means. Much as we prize the films we are going to let Prof. Fortier have ' them in order that he may let the world know what we are doing and incidently to bring a lot .more of. good peopW to Deming. The New Mexico delegation elec ted the following ollieers: Chairman-Willard E. Molt, of Deming. Secretary Forrest Mckinley, of Las Cruces. Honorary Vice President Gov. elect W. C. McDonald, of Caorizozo. Committee on Credentials Prof. Alexander McPherson, of Roswell. Committee an resolutions Col. Ralph E. Twitchell, of Las Vegas. Committee on permanent organi zation L. Clapp, of Hatch. Committee to select next meeting place - A. A. Jones, of Ijib Vegas. To rescind to New Mexico call for 5 minute talk W. 0. McNary of Las Cruces. We expect to return to Deming, U'st town In the world, in time to bring glad tidings to the Chamber of Commerce banquet Dec. 19, when we hope to meet every live wire of the Mimbres Valley and let them know what the world thinks of our country. Some Alfalfa Facts. The' following story on alfalfa was written by Willard II. Dennis of Pecos and is authentic: Alfalfa has been planted success fully nearly every month in the year; less need, however, is required and probably a more vigorous plant secured, when it ..is put in the ground the last of August or dur ing the month of September. Any field that is in reasonably good condition say for the planting of wheat la all right for seeding alfalfa; the one Important point Is that it should water evenly and quickly. The width between minor sub- laterals, width of borders or creates, etc., are matters that muBt in a measure be determined by the class of toil, natural grade of the land 10 IE NEIGHBORHOOD OF mm !S He's Here.

First we know that Dem ing is the most widely advertised town west of Kansas City.

New Mexico to Have Nation- al Park. The United States department of agriculture is going to recommend the establishment of a nntionnl park and game preserve, to 1k erected out of the Pecos Nationnl Forest, and use it for the stocking of near- y all the western states with game. The national park will contain more than 800 wjunre miles nnd will Im' fenced. In it will be kent enouirh Ik, deer, mountain sheep and antel ope to stock all New Mexico, mak ing it a paradise for hunters, nnd some more besides. This is the good news brought to Albuquerque yesterday by Dr. The odore S. Palmer of Washington. chief of the biological survey of the epartment of agriculture. Dr, 'aimer is the man in charge of the game of the United States just as GifTord Pinchot was and II. S. Graves is in charge of the forests of the country. He received the re port of Field Inspector A. C. Coor who surveyed this section some time ago with the view of obtain ing information as to the establish ment of a new national park.
