WEDNESDAY EVENTS. FEB. 14, 1900 Some San Miguol county republl cana have been looking cross-eyed at Rarh .-ifher today. The hen's on, but Just what the chicken will hatch out, remains to be seen. The high price of material is not very encouraging to people who want to build houses during the coming sea eon. It will be a check to building op erations in all directions. The female members of the Metho dist Episcopal church of Liberty, N. Y., have decided to provide the church with Individual communion cups. The village Is a resort for consumptives, and large numbers of them are al ways there. For sanitary reasons, therefore, the church has adopted the single-cup method and the other churches dn Liberty are expected to act in a like manner. The Standard oil company has paid $237,000,000 in dividends in ten years on $100,000,000 capital. The company has paid 38 per cent in dividends In the last nine months. There are less than 2,000 stockholders, and through out the country there are "30.000 Bhares held in lots of from one to twenty shares; 90, 000 shares are held by employees of the compainy, and a dozen or more in siders own the"balance. The passage by - congress of a Judi cious anti-trust law would be worth more to the people of the United States than all the Islands of the Pacific. It would stimulate individual enterprise and protect consumers from the exor bitant prices charged by monopolies. It would prove beneficial to the work Jngimen by -creating a larger demand for labor through the multiplication of enterprises. The good effect of legis lation of this kind would be felt at once by all classes. DISSIPATION IN READING. There are so many forms of dissi pation that The Optic can neither diagnose nor prescribe for all at once, Each one, too, ,has its very worst forms, and Its particular enemies. Dissipation In reading is just now in the writer s mind, for it is- such a prevalent vice, it is a wonder all the clergymen and teachers of Las Vegas are not denouncing it. Certainly, it is difficult to say which Is the worat, no reading or reading to "kill time." The non-reader may at least think, while on the other hand the skimmer over of lighi trash, may talk but seldom thinks. Parents do not fully realize the Importance of the literature supplied to their chil dren. The advertiser who throws into the dooryard the beginning of a trashy novel to attract purchasers, should be chased out by a savage bull dog. Such stuff, for It is entitled to no higher name, unduly excites the imagination, creates a morbid condition of mind and is pestilential to the household wherever it is allowed. The books you read, like the friends with whom you associate, Influence the life. Parents, teachers, and clergymen should make a continuous effort to encourage the reading of good,, whole some books, and to prevent the read ing of bad ones. Hasty reading, the mere skimming over the surface, is also bad in its effects. Read carefully, digest well, should be the rule. History, biogra phy, truthful tales of travel and ex- . ploration, are far better than the highly-colored, sensational reading which pictures life as it is not and creates a longing for an ideal and Imaginary career, which, can have no existence In real life. Life is . Intensely practical. It is truly' real and earnest, and whatever influence can be worked to awaken noble aspirations in actual life with in the sphere of the real, is helpful but that reading which creates only iaise ideals, impractical and unde sirable, is very harmful.- To all our readers T h e O p 1 1 c sug gests, read and think. Discard that baneful method -hich seeks only to pass away cime, and adopt the meth od which when you have read a book, i will enable you to rise from the read ing informed in something practical and useful and require your children to abstain, from the hot house trash hurtful to mind and soul. The Census. ' The senate has refused to adopt a house resolution extending the scope of the census so as to include a large amount of extraneous matter. M. Chandler led the opposition, stating that every census enumerator would now have to ask nearly two hundred questions at each house or farm which he visited. The schedule of popula tion alone requires no less than twenty-eight replies or statements.. All this work must be ono in one month, and Mr. Chandler esserted and no doubt with propriety that if it wers Increased it would le impossible for any conscientious man to do the work properly in the time allotted. CENSUS ENUMERATORS. Now that the announcement has !c n made that the revised lis-t in-j creases the census districts la New Mexico t-j 191, some facts about the qualifications and compensations of the enumerators may be in order, though, later on, The Optic may have something more to say in this connection. Each person seeking appointment s census enumerator must make a written application to the supervisor for the district of which he Is a resi dent, giving the christian and sur name in full; whether a citizen of the United States or not; present place of legal residence; sex and color; age; place of birth; the principal facts of education and professional or business experience, including a statement of all national, state, county or municipal offices held at any time; nature of previous occupa tion, if any; previous experience in census work; physical condition, and knowledge of English or other lan guages. This application must be made in the handwriting of the ap plicant throughout, and must be cer tified to as such. The enumeration required by the census act will begin on the first day of June, 1900, and be completed within two weeks In all cities for which 8,000 Inhabitants or more were reported for 1890, and In all other districts on or before the first day of July next thereafter. It will he necessary for each enumerator, before entering upon his duties, to receive a com mission under the hand of the super visor of the district, to which he be longs, and to take and subscribe an oath or affirmation that he will faith fully discharge all the duties requir ed of him under the law. The compensation to be paid to census enumerators Is fixed by sec tion 16 of the act of March 3rd, 1899, and a minimum rate of two cents for each living inhabitant, two cents for each death, fifteen cents for each farm, and twenty cents for each es tablishment or productive industry, is provided for all sub-divisions where such, allowances shall be deemed sufficient. In ' other sub-divisions higher per capita rates are to be paid according to the difficulty of enumeration. As the decades pass, the desire of the government to secure reliable In formation concerning the people and business of the country Increases While oensusjtaklng In the past has not been of that accuracy that is re-1 quislte to enable the people to leam of the actual growth ot the country, it has been as reliable as could be ex pected under the circumstances. The1 director of the census is too often a man who secures the position through political influence rather than because of his superior ability to perform the important duties devolving upon him. For political reasons It is an easy mat ter for the census director to suppress or minimize the facts of statistics gathered by the enumerators, as It Is believed was done under the direction ?f Mr. Porter in the taking of the cen sus in 1890. CIRCULARS SENT TO STOCKMEN. Secretary Martin Keeping His People In Touch With Reform Moves. Charles F. Martin, secretary of the national live stock association, at Denver, Colo., Is mailing to those in terested, copies of a set of resolutions offered af the recent convention by C. W. Baker, of Illinois, and adopted by a unanimous vote, protesting xgainst unreasonable freight charges by railroads and urging the passage of a senate bill now In congress, which contemplates the correction of defects in the present law governing the inerstate commerce commission md grants to the commicsion ade quate power to fix Vates and correct references and discriminations, and sjives a legal effect to their decisions. Copies of a memorial to congress on oleomargarine legislation, Introduced by the same member, are being mail ed with the resolutions, as well as a bulletin on railroads and the live stock industry by T. W. Tomlinson. railway representative of the Chi cago live stock exchange. Well Put, Young Man. From the "Journal-Democrat."

WMXl (Q?'.(cVaMlPmV7 A SURE HEDIGUiE. m m Haitdsok, Va., Dec. U. I have been Buffering from female weak ness for four years, and have taken many, medicines, but Win of Cardni and B'aek Draught bare done more for me than any thing else. MBS. CAROLINE EVANS. If v. It Is a mistake to take any and every kind of medicine when you are Sick. There is danger in it Most of the so-called cures for " female weakness" do nothing more than deaden the pain temporarily, and when the effect wears away the patient is weaker and sicker than before. It is never wise to take chances. You nave only one life, and that is dear and precious. If you have any pain, ache, disorder or weakness in the femi nine organs, nothing will help you like Wine of CarduL It helps do away with morning sickness during the early stages of pregnancy, and modifies the pains of childbirth; recovery is rapid and future health is assured. The Wine is purely veg ftt etable, being made of herbs whose medicinal properties act directly upon the organs of worrenhooi it is a long-tried remedy, and has many years of success behind it. It is sure. Why take a chance medicine when you can get a sure medicine? Druggists sell Largo Bottles for $1.00. Crippled by Rheumatism. Those who have Rheumatism End themselves growing steadily worse ail the while. One reason of this is that the remedies presents! by the doctor! contain mercury and potash, which ul timately intensify the disease by caus ing the joints to swell and stiffen, Erodueinj? a severe aching of the bones. . 8. 8. has been curing Rheumatism for twenty years even the worst casei ithicu sceniea aiinoss incurauie.

It will Interest the general public to learn that the Pullman palace car company, which leyles tribute upon its patrons to pay Its employes, has just paid Colonel Albert H. King, of Brooklyn, N. Y., $2,000 on a judgment obtained in the United States dis trict court for being unceremoniously hustled out of one of Its cars between Washington and New York. The Southern Pacific, as welll as the Santa Fe, make it a rule to offer every inducement possible to theat rical companies in this . part of the country, where the long jumps to be made make transportation a heavy item in their expense account. To this end, each year, they publish itemized statements of the theatres, population, etc., of the towns on their line. The new wrecker which has re cently been turned out of the Santa Fe shops, was tested in Topeka anl found to be thoroughly satisfactory. The tests consisted in the lifting of the front end of one of the large ten wheeled locomotives, which waa secured from the scrap pile for the occasion, and also a flat car, loaded with car wheels. v General Passenger Agent L. W Wakeley, of the Burlington, has just Issued a folder entitled "To the New Northwest.' It is neat and attractive in appearance, is printed in red and black inks, has a four-page map in two colors, and is a miniaut'ure vol ume of useful and interesting reading for the traveling public. It was pre pared in order to supply the present great demand for printed matter des criptive of the Pacific northwest. Judge Baker, of the federal court at Auburn, Ind., has rendered an Impor tant decision, and one in which the various railway corporations will be interested. It was in .the case of Vic tor C. Vetto against Judson Harmon receiver of the Baltimore & Ohio Southwestern railroad company, de claring a railroad to be just as liable for damages to a person who has re ceived injuries while riding on a-gra tuitous pass issued by the company as if he had paid his fare.' A letter received by parties in thlr city who are interested from O. A Bailey, who is now in the Oity of Mex ico, states that since he arrived in New York the last time, several very desirable acquisitions had been made to the syndicate already formed for the building of the C. & N. railroad from Doming, south. The letter also stated that we might expect to see within a short time, a 'party of those most interested, out here to take the necessary steps for starting the work Deming "Headlight" '"Last year it cost the Rock Island company over $65,000 simply to pro tect tne rear end of its passenger trains," said General Passenger Agent Slo&t during a chat with a re porter. "So far as I can learn, this company occupies a unique position in this respect, going far beyond or dinary requirements of standard rules adopted by the American railway association, uur riagmen nave no duties calling them to the front cars but ride continuously in the sleeper or whatever car may be attached to the rear of the train. m i it 5h ai el ft f4 5 D I e UD1ES' A0VIS0RT DEPARTMENT.
