VOL. 26 SOCORRO. NEW MEXICO. SATURDAY. APRIL 25. 1908 NO.d3 TO BENEFIT MINING SCHOOLS House Committee on Mines and Minino? Submits Favorable Re port on Beneficial Measure. A recent press dispatch from Washington savs that Represen tative Foster of Illinois, a mem ber of the committee on mines and mining, has submitted to the house a favorable report upon a measure which if enacted will greatly benefit the New Mexico School of Mines. The purpose of the bill is to adopt the same policy toward schools of mining that is now pursued toward agricultural schools. Each state agricultur al school now receives an annual appropriation from the national government. If Mr. Foster's bill lecomes a law, as it probably will do before the expiration of the life of the present congress, the New Mexi co School of Mines at Socorro, similar schools in other states and territories, and such schools as are subsequently established, beginning July 1, 190.S, will re ceive $5,000 the first year. $10. 000 the second year. $15,000 the third year, $20,000 the fourth year. $25.000 the fifth veár, and $25.000 each year thereafter. The bill provides that the money shall be appropriated from the receipts from sales of public lands. Beat Wheat, Most Profitable Fear. Dkpahtmknt oh Agricultirk, Bureau of Plant Industry. Washington, D. C, December 19th. 1907. Rev. A. J. Brown. D. D. Dear Sir: In connection with the truly wonderful Mission work which has been done in China, I presume you are aware of t lie important gifts which ha've been made by missionaries to the farmers in America. The best variety of wheat now grown through the south originated from seedings sent over by mis sionaries. Our most profitable pear originated as a cross be tween seedings imported by mis sionaries from China and our or dinary pear. In fact, we are in debted to missionaries for many varieties of plants which aré now grown in this country. Yours very truly, (Signed) David Fairchild, Agricultural Explorer in charge of Foreign Explorations. Read Luke 24:13. 36 as Bible lesson for Sabbath' morning. Notice how in that day they missed the knowledge so neces sary to explain what happened. Is your life full of perplexity? Come and hear about these two with their backs turned to Jeru salem. Mrs. Newcomb , will have charge of Christian Endeavor at 7:30. Sunday school at. 10 a. m. Let us have our regular classes and look forward, to children's day. B. C. Mhkkfh. Thomas B. Reed Dead.
