He reports that the meeting resulted in the formation of the New Mexico Good Roads Association, which is to be a permanent affair and of which the 500 delegates present became charter members. It is the Intention of the leaders in the movement r to make the association grow from year to year until it Is a power in the Ter ritory. The officers selected for the first year were Ex-Governor L. Bradford Prince, president; and Frank Owen, of Santa Fe, Secretary. A vice- presi dent was chosen for each judicial dis trict in the territory and Mr. Graham was made vice- president for this dis trict. The new association is formed for business, not resolutions and other r. work on paper. It proposes to have good roads clubs formed in every dis trict at once, and the work in their district is to be placed In the vice president's hands. A meeting for a 'good road convention for the Pecos Valley will be called soon and the proposition of building a r good road from one end of the Valley to the other will be launched. Good roads men from other states were in attendance at the meeting and spoke of the great advantage the eastern part of the territory has In road building. They showed that where It costs sometime as high as $6,000 per mile for roads in the east em states, the same road can "be built here for from $150 to $200 per mile. Very soon county managers will be named for this district and they will have the supervision of the . good roads movement In Roosevelt. Chav es and Eddy counties. .' - ' Some Seasonable Advice. It may be a piece of superflous ad vice to urge people at this season of the year to lay in a supply of Cham berlain's Cough Remedy. It Is almost sure to be needed before winter is over, and much -more prompt and sat isfactory results are obtained when taken as soon as a cold is contracted and before it has become settled in the system, which can only be done by keeping the remedy at hand. This remedy is so widely known and so altogether good that no one should hesitate about buying it in perfer- ence to any other. It is for sale by all dealers. o Doings in the Land Office.

A- well known traveling man who visits the drug trade says he has of ten heard druggists indire of cus tomers 'who asked for a cough medi cine, whether it was wanted for - a child or for an adult, and if for a child they , almost invariably recom mend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.

' Roswell' Citizen" is Merely on" a I Trip In Arizona and Writes to Tell His Friends. The following letter explains itself ahdwlll be of interest to many Ros well people: '. Clifton. Ariz.. Sept. 22 1905. Daily Record, Roswell, N. M. I thought I would write a line to " The Record in order that my creat ors might keep tract of me. I left Roswell, on August 7, to go to Bisbee, Arizona, but stopped off at El aso and after working three weeks got crippled and laid off two weeks, and during that time was offered a "situa tion with the "Arizona Copper Comp any here and tonight I find myself in the bed of the San Francisco river, surrounded by almost perpendicular rock walls, hundreds of feet high in what is called the flourishing city of Clifton. Now do not understand me to say that Clifton is not all O. K., for I do think that the hardest people on earth live here. I base my judgment on wfiat I have seen. I was out in town this evening for a short time and I will venture the assertion that one half the population, both male and female, was out for- a battle with "Old King Boose." " I think this is a grand country for a man that is willing to shut himself out from the world, from home and friends, and relinquish every tie that binds him to life, peace and happi ness and is willing to surrender all hope of heaven to the devil and his angels. The scenery is grand beyond de scription, and I can say that I have traveled over the most crooked rail road in the world, from" the San Fran cisco river to Nieranci, Ariz.' The road makes four complete loops in as many miles. - By saying that I am of the opin ion that when God created this " sec tion of Arizona He was trying His best to see what rough country He could make of it, I give the opinion of many others. Well I will close. If anyone wants to write to me they can reach me at ' Clifton, Ariz. Sighed, r. p. Johnston! -o- IMPROVEMENTS FOR DEXTER Townships to Have Road Grader and a Road Boss and the Town is to Have Voting Precinct.. At -the meeting of the county com missioners yesterday afternoon, it was ordered that a voting precinct be '- declared for Dexter. It was fur ther ordered that $200 be appropriat ed for a road grader for District No. 4, in township 13, in which Dexter is located; also that the township be given a road boss, and Jerry Cazier was named for the place. With all this news in his possession Jerry Cazier was a happy man when he left last night for his home in Dex ter. Not that he cared so much for the position as road boss, but because the three improvements that have been secured for Dexter. He has been working to get these improvements for some time and feels that his la bors have not been in vain. Saturday evening he secured an agreement from some of the county commission ers that if he secured half the money for a road grader, the county would nit up the rest. ' He went home and Sunday secured subscriptions amount lng to half the cost of the best grader made. With this subscription, list fie appeared before the commission Mon day. - Mr. Cazier calls attention- to the fact that although he was named a delegate to the territorial good roads convention and did not go he has done something for the good roads in Chaves county that will be felt right away; "Uncle Jerry" is a practic al good roads man and will be found with his hands to the handle when it comes to ' hard work for' public im provements," especially good roads.
