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.
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
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
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.

MBS. CAROLINE EVANS.
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
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?
