0 i ESTABLISHED SEPTEMBER 17, CALIENTE VISITED EY RECORD PARTY Nice Lot of New Business Se cured from Hustling Mer chants of the Town Accompanied by Mrs. Nation, Miss Caddie Cook and Mrs. Ralph Shaw, the Record editor made a trip to t'aliente Monday. Notwithstanding the fact that our time was limited, we managed to see most of the business men of the hustling little railroad town. Busi ness in t'aliente seems to be good. The first thing we did was to look up Harry Underbill. Harry owns a lot i upon which is a building bought by the Record a long time ago. We sold the building to Underhill in about Hi) seconds and a minute later he had it rented for a wall paper store. Nothing slow about this. Stores Visited. Among the business houses visited was the C'aliente Mercantile company of which Mr. Pace is the head. This is one of the big concerns of r.he county. Just to show that he had no hard feelings, Mr. Pace handed us a i.ioe order for printed matter. C. L. Alquist has a nice store across the tracks. He has just re turned from a business trip' to Salt Lake City. A. H. Norris is a man of much business. General merchandise, hay, grain, livery and automobile service are a few of the things that occupy his time. And now we've got to get out a complete line of stationary for tiiis man Norris. Dr. J. West Smith tells us that he is building a three story building rear Alquist's store. The lower floor is to be occupied by stores. The sec ond floor Is to be a hotel and the good doctor only knows what is to become of the third floor. Steam heat and electric lights will make this one of the best buildings in Lincoln county. John Shier, popular druggist, had just returned from a business trip to Salt Lake City and now he's going to Los Angeles for a visit. Funny how those Caliente people find time to travel around so much. While the writer was down talking Hans Olsen out of a printing order, the ladies of the party sampled Shier's ice cream sodas but we didn't mind that Hans knows a thing or two about quenching thirsts. ' Justice of the Peace Frank Palmer is one of the busiest men in town. However, this did not keep him from pointing out some of the places of interest around town. There must he about a dozen of these places. Sheriff William Culverwell acted as our guide in the forenoon and be tween smiles managed to find time to subscribe for the Record. Pace &. Lee, the grocery and meat specialists. have a dandy store and seem to be doing a nice business. Nice printing order from these boys. George M. Senter liked his last job of printing so well that he told us to duplicate. George sells wet goods as some of the boys up here no doubt know. James Ryan, County commissioner, advanced his subscription another notch as did some of the other fel lows. Little things like this always make an editor feel ggod. Next Sunday, we're going down again for the purpose of getting a few printing presses and- other junk out of that building so that the wall pa per store can get started. Maybe it will mean another ad for the Record. It was a pleasant three hours we spent in Caliente. Ilev. Smith Was Here. ttev. Percival Smith, Episcopalian rector, was here Sunday filling his regular appointment. He preached two sermons both of which were well received by fairly large audiences. Short services wer conducd by Rev. Smith Wednesday morning. Rev. Smith has a lot of friends in Pioche who are always glad to see him. Mr. and Mrs. T. M.

At his own offices on Lacour street Tues day, Thursday and Saturday eve nlngs.Those enrolling, even if ac cepted, do not have to enter the ser vice if they should later decide that they did not want to do so.
