when others
to be be thought, said or. done to ad
vance the masses and to banish the
darkness of ignorance. They catch
the spirit of dead forms,
and embody it in a new and nobler
shape. The power and influence of
the masses, awakened by suoh efforts,
transform society from ignorance and
stupidity into a condition for growth,
which cab. be depended upon, not only
to sustain our present attainments, but
to carry the torch of progress onward
and upward." Under such circuit!
stances, there can be no relapsing in
this line of march, because there is in
the masses, and their work, newer and
higher life, stability and ultimate vic
tory. Intelligence so arms, equips,
and illuminates them that tbey come
to realize their capacity and power. It
la out of this which springs tbe marvel
ous daring, tbe lofty enthusiasm and
the universal aspiration and enterprise
of their real lives.
The time for holding our city eleo
tion is fast approaching, and our citi
zens should begin to devote some
thought to the selection of good men
for the 'various offices. Great care
should be taken in the selection of
board ol trustees, ana none bus ex
perienced business men, who are in
terested in a wise and economical
city government, and who will do all
in their power to promote the welfare
of the town, should be chosen for this
office. '
Mors towns die for want of confl
dence on the part of business men and
lack of public spirit (ban from any
other cause. When a man in search of
a home or business location goes into
a town and finds everything brim full
of hope and enthusiasm over the pros
peots of the place, and all earnestly
building it up, he soon becomes im.
bued with the same spirit, and as a re
sult, he drives down his stakes and
goe to work with the same interest.
When, however, be goes to a town
where everyone expresses doubt and
apprehension for the future prospects
of the place, moving about and Indulg
ing in mournful complaints, he natur
ally feels it is no plane for him, and at
onoe shakes the dust off his feet, while
he pulls out with all possible speed for
some ojher place. Consequently, try
to make an enterprising town out of
one in which you live.- While you are
worKing ior your own town, you are
accomplishing all the more for your
self. ;
Or no other class of people is Las
Vegas more proud than of her school
teachers. Itieir stoady and constant
aim is to lead the children out upon a
broader stage, into more expanding
scenes, and to Induct them into new
and stronger characters. They aim to
light up the path of life with new
Fplandor and new power. It this is
their work and their aim, all tbeir ef
forts should be supported and second
ed by all right-thinking peiple. They
are to be more and more tbe leaders,
the personification and tbe ready
agents of whatever appear necessary I
Si'CCESS at any election ever de
pends upon a judicious seleotion of rep
reseotative citizens as candidates.
wnere caucuses and conventions are
manipulated by Intriguing politicians
for the advancement of unworthy aspi
rants, defeat is sure to follow in tbe
wake of such unfair proceedings; Tbe
intelligence of the people in . tbe
governing powers at the polls, and
when heelers and bitters attempt to
pain control of a municipality or a
state, public indignation centers upon
such efforts and the protest of tbe
people's sovereignty registered in over
whelming majorities against such pal
pable corruption. But when the masses
meet in convention and dlspassionably
discuss the merits of their favorite sons
and with tbe exercise of deliberate
judgment select standard-bearers of
moral and political worth, then their
success in the canvass is assured, and
good government vouchsafed. We take
great pleasure in assuring our readers
that the ticket placed in tbe field by the
republican convention, next Tuesday
evening, will be selected with care and
with a view to having our commercial
and business interests faithfully repre
sented. ' .

The neighbors called lier a walking corpse.
For fifteen years elio had suffered from loss
of blood and dropsy. She had not the
strength to stand alone. She had spent
thousands of dollars with the doctors and
had been unable to find relief. Her ease
was considered hopeless.
That is the experience of Mrs. C. Beed, a
well-known lady of this city.
A Nugget reporter colled upon her at her
home last Tuesday. SIio was willing to be
interviewed, she said, if she could be the
means of pointing out to other unfortunates
the way to recovery and good health.
'"It has been over fifteen years since the

"Since then, until within the last few
months, I never knew what it was to be well
for a single day. I could not sleep. My
appetite went away and I benn to low flesh.
This continued for years. 'I became so weak
I could not wait upon myself. I had to have
the help of others to dress and undress, even
to walk from one room to another. I lost all
my strength. In addition, I had dropsy of
tho blood. My Jimhs were swollen, and
nothing I could do seemed to afford me re
lief. The doctors said I must take iron to
strengthen and invigorate my blood. I took
iron took it by tho bottle and by the box :
took it morning, noon and night. But it did
no good, and Iliad finally lost all hone.
"At last I saw an account of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Palo People. I thought this
fitted my case exactly and I tried to get some
of tho pills. They were not kept at the
drugstores here, ana I had to send to Olym-
ia. . They came finally, however. I began
take them and experienced relief immedi
ately. I sent for two more boxes to tho Dr.
Williams' Company at Schenectady, N. V.,
and by the time I had taken them I felt like
a new woman. I have been taking them
occasionally since then.
" It was two years ago that I began to nse
. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I was sixty years
of age then, and had not been able to do my
housework for many years. Now I am able
Ui care for myself, to do my own work, and I
can walk long distances without being espe
cially fatigued.
" I think my cure is a' marvelous one, and
is due entirely to tho Pink Pills for Pale
People. Without them I fear I should have
been dead before now.
" Since my cure has become known the
druggists here have always kept the pills.

In order to confirm this statement beyond
all doubt Mrs. Reed offered to make affidavit
to its truth, and the affidavit is here pre
sented :

East Las Veoas, N. M., March 28th,

But who would have supposed that

the veteran politician, Michael S. Hart,
fresh and blooming from Santa Fe,

queer coincidence, J. H. Crist, the

A year ago, there was a demooratio
city convention at Judge Wooster's
office. Its president was Dr. F. II
Atkins ana.ionn l. Zimmerman was
secretary. To keep up tbe regularity
ef demooratio organization,: Dr. At
kins, Col. Mike. Hart, Judge E. V.
Long, W. A. Givens and John L. Zim
merman were appointed a city dem
ooratio central committee ta serve
until April 1st, 1896. It looks as if
some of the democratic potentates were
afraid to trast this committee to call
the city ..convention. At least, the
committee is entirely ignored by the
gentlemen whe - have been moving
since tbe visit of the chairman of tbe
late demooratio defeat to this city.
This writer is not on the Inside of dem

if tbe governor and his friends have -at
one lick put to sleep the citizens'
movement, retired Dr.M lligan, laid
the wires to ostracise Don Felix and
given the demooratio city central com
