J . I. n t .i rrt nra ftf owDers oi tne same aim mo . thn nnmmiinitv. every town in New Mexico is crying for a beet sugar fac torv. It is well and proper that they should do so, as the industry can be nnndnntRd with eaual profit in most any part of the Territory. A RTESIAN I1UUGAX ION. Elsewhere, in this paper, appears an article on artesian wells, in which N H. Dirton, of the Uuited States geo logical survey, says that there is prao tioally an inexhaustible supply of water all along the eastern side of the Rocky mountains, at a depth of from 50 to 1 200 faet, and he thinks that with prontr reservoirs enough water can be had, by artesian wells, to develop the rich soil of this oountry. This is indeed refreshing news to the people of this country, to whom Provi dence had given, seemingly, everything but plenty of water, and had but with held this from us until a time when it is valuable to us, and when we have the means to use it, Mr. Darton further says, that the geological survey is now making a map which will show exactly the dis tricts where water can be found and at what depth. Irrigation by artesian wells, where water can be obtained io plenty, is the most successful and satisfactory method of irrigation known. By it, the farmer has no "tangling alliances" with his neighbor; has water at all times and generally of a superior quality. The irrigation congress which meets in Pbceiix next week should look into the practicability of this sea of water, under us, being brought to tbe surface and turning our barren desert , lands into sunny gardens. IiET fJ8 ttKT TOGETHER. The recent campaign seems to have drawn the citizens away from all kindi of citizens' clubs, and other united ef forts to do something for ourselves But now that poplitics have been put aside for business, let tbe progressive citizens get together in matters of vital importance. . One of the main troubles with past efforts of this sort, has been that tbe few patriotic men who attend. ' ed, would be called upon to plaoe op posite their names, on a subscription paper, a good, liberal sum of money and then further take the street to urge others to do tbe same thing. But there are many things that such an organiza tiou can do without the outlay of ( dollar. Among these things, a document could be gotten up by a committee, and addressed to the new industrial agent of the Atchison road, setting forth, in conservative manner, the advantages that could accrue to the railroad com pany by arranging equitable freight rates on Iscoured wool and tanned hides. Again from experiments already made it has been Bhown that sugar beets can be raised here equal to those of the Pecos Valley, and at one time Clans Spreckels, the sugar king, offered to put in a factory at Las Vegas if the amount of beets required could be guaranteed. Certainly this could be done If uuited action were taken in the Mora, Sapello and Galllnas valleys. It is tbe business of the United States geolngcal survey to furnish information as to where artesian wells can be sunk with profit ; a committee from tho citi zsls club could get this data with but little mure expense than the postage. It is certainly a good token of pro' perity when the great railroads ol the went are taking the matter 6t establish Ing new industnos Into their own hands, m a nnrtain extent.

The mua oaius, ohinh are famous for their curative ef. feots, are only to be had In two places ,n ihn world, here and at Carlsbad, Germany, and It has been shown that tbe mud found at the hot spring of ivw Mexloo. and which is used in giving the baths, Is of the same ohemi cal composition as that of Carlsbad It is very interesting to note toe mruiov ,, f .hi. mud or Deat, has been dow'n from the hills, probably a century ago, ana wnicu bbvu.ub . u i, V. a . hiimma iinnnm RMIUIILT LUH luufltf ubv www nosed and formea into a luunsuom which is Draoticallv carbon impregnate ..4 with salts, macnesia. soda, lithia and various other ingredients.

A great many people come lo this place to take the mua Dam treat ment, aud some marveiuus cum tffRtad. Ia one instance 1 remember to have seen a man, who was all drawn i,h rhanmatism. and after two weeks ot this treatment us u relieved.

The generally accepted theory for the existence ot these hot springs is that tbe strata rock in this seotion runs perpendicular and tbe water from the mountains, nrobablv far distant from tbe not springs, passes down between tbe per pendicular strata to a great depth until it is heated b? the beat from the interior of the earth, and by reason of tbe rise in temperature is caused to move op ward, issuing forth from tbe earth at such points as are most convenient for its exit." TOURING THE VALLEY. Wealthy Brewers Identified witb Pecos Valley Sugar Interests. The special car -speria," occu pied by Messrs. Henry Uiblein, Edward Uibiein. Capt. rred raost, miss raosi and tbe Misses Uihlein, all in charge ol General Manager Goetz, . of the sugar factory, who had gone to Chicago to escort tbe party hither, came in wea nesday morning. , The gentlemen named are large stockholders in tbe sugar factory com pany ot this pities, and are reported to be seeking further investments, Tbey spent tbe day In Eddy visiting the factory aod points of interest. Yesterday morning tbey continued on to R swell, where an inspection of the upper valley will be made. They were iined here by Messrs. E. A. Cahoon and Charles ri. sparxs, oi nosweu who with Vice-President Faulkner, ao oomoanied tbe party on tiie northern valley trip. It is tbe intention to re turn to Eddy to-night, spending Satur day here, and then continue, tbe trip to Old Mexico. Of course, tbe visit of men so well known in the business world, and whose accumulated wealth aggregates an immense sum, has originated all sorts of rumors and proposed plans, What tbe gentlemen will decide to do is as yet uncertain. Tbe Argus has no knowledge that tbey nave commum oated their intentions to anyone. Tbey are pleased with the valley, and may after complete investigation, - decide that it is a profitable field for invest ment. When a decision Is reached the Araus will not be dilatory in glv msr it to its readers. Individually, its opinion is that if Messrs. Uiblein and Pubst have oapital for investment.sugar factories in tbe Peoos valley must make strong appeals Eddy Argus.

Topeka Journal. Homers and Carrier rig-eons. The homer and the carrier are both brilliant fliers, .but the homer is the soeedier bird and better fitted for long distances. The homor has tbe widest unread winjrs of all pigeons, and can sail for an enormous cuatance uirougn midair. It is also considerably lighter than the carrier and is possessed of more nhenomenal powers of endurance, having been known to fly 800 miles Without alighting. On a clear day, with a eood skv and favorable wind, auu miles is an admirable record, although 600 miles a day is the goal of every pi- eeon flier's ambition. A bird that can perform this remarkable feat is worth at least S100. and may be vainea at auu if it is capable of a better record. The bird's sramouoss, stamina and speed reach their highest point of excellence at 8 and 4 vears of ace, which is the natural prime of life for a flier. After they have passed their prime they de teriorate in a scarcely noticeable degree and at 10 or 13 years of age are still good for the shorter distances.
