A Llrely Game.
Baseball enthusiasm continue
unabated in Socorro regardless of
wind and weather. Sunday's
game between the American and
the Mexican teams was a spirited
ore from beginning to end and
was witnessed by a hundred or
more spectator who found the
sunny side of neighboring build
ings the most comfortable vantage
ground. A remarkable incident
of the game occurred when a red
hot ball from the Mexican pitcher's
strong arm struck the end of the
catcher's thumb breaking the
bone and driving it through the
skin. The work of the American
team was a vast improvement
over their former efforts and
accounts for their winning this
game by a score of 12 to 6.
Subscriptions have been solicited
this week for the purpose of
buying uniforms for both teams
and the boys may be expected
soon to take their places on the
diamond presenting a genuine
professional appearance. The two
teams are so evenly matched that
the one that finally proves its
superiority will have nothing to
brag of but the hard work it has
The Flrat Livestock Shipment.
Says a dispatch from Capitán,
Lincoln county: The date set by
the management of the El Paso
and Rock Island Railway Com
pany for the connecting of the
steel with the Rock Island at
Santa Rosa is January 23. On
this date it is proposed to run the
first train from Liberal, Kas., to
El Paso. Immediately upon
making this connection there will
be shipped from Capitán by the
Lincoln Trading Company 10,000
head of sheep, which in all prob
ability will be the first shipment
of livestock over the new route.
Besides this there will be another
16,000 head of sheep to go from
Gallina station, Lincoln county.
This last shipment will be made
by Mr. Foy, a Colorado buyer,
who has been in Lincoln county
for some time purchasing lambs
and ewes for the market.

E. W. Brown, a prosperous So

a survey for a big storage reser
voir 38 miles from San Marcial
near Dripping Springs, Socorro
county. The proposed dam is to
carry an average depth of 25 feet
of water and will cover 650 acres
of ground. It is estimated that
with its help 20,000 acres can be
put under cultivation. The land
to be reclaimed is at present gov
ernment land. The formation is
limestone and it is estimated that
72 hours of rain in a wason will
fill the reservoir. An average of
twelve inches a year n to be fur
nished each of the 20, 0'JO .acres to
be reclaimed. The site i known
as the Hopewell tank. It Is so
peculiarly formed that it will be
possible to construct a part of the
dam now, use it with the water
it stores and add to its capacity
whenever it is convenient. It
will be built in sections in other
words. The site is eight miles
north of the high ridge at tha
north end of the San Andreas
mountains; and the whole of the
water falling into a catchment
basin of seven miles cast and
west by nine miles north and
south is drained into grapevine
