ARTESIAN LAND COMPANY, 421 TUrd National BaakBM*. St Louis. Mo. m&M .. w. TOWNER REVERSED IN WARE CASE. Supreme Court Holds Parole Law is Valid and Ware is Given Freedom. The supreme court has handed down an opinion restoring Leroy Ware, the Seymour banker, to the liberties given him under the terms of his original parole from the state penitentiary. lu so ruling, the high court re versed Judge Towner, of Corning, who had ordered Ware recommitted to the state penitentiary upon the theory that the parole board had no right to act in his case. In making this decision the high court passed upon the validity of the state law creating the parole board. The opinion states that the law is absolutely valid and constitutional. Judge Towner had held that the parole board's authority extended only over those prisoners who were sentenced after the board was cre ated and became active, July 4th, 1907, but the high court held this to be untrue. It is stated in the opinion that the power of the board extends over persons convicted under the old law as well as those sent down un der the new indeterminate sentence law- Ware Itelcnsed. As the result of this finding of the court. Ware has been released from the penitentiary at Fort Madison and made free to enjoy liberty under the provisions of the parole granted him. Ware's case is an unusual one and one of vast interest to the people of this county. In 1907 he was indicted twenty-two times for making false entries, for embezzlement and for fraudulent banking. In court for trial, he entered into an agreement with the state where by he was to plead guilty to making false entries, the state in return for this plea to grant him exemption from prosecution under the other in dictments during the term of his sentence. This agreement was sanc tioned by the court. Ware was sentenced to live years, but after a service of one year and two months was paroled by the act of the parole board. County attorney Sallman immedi ately had him rearrested under one of the old indictments. Ware fought this under the agreement entered into promising him exemption, and was successful in securing freedom. County attorney Sallman then filed a motion asking that Ware be recommitted, setting-up as grounds that the law under which the parole board was created and acted was unconstitutional, as it trenched upon the power of the governor to grant pardons, reprieves and commute sentences of convicted persons. He further urged that the board, even if this law be valid, had exceeded its authority, for it had no right to par ole any person convicted prior to July 4, 1907, the date when the in determinate sentence law went into effect and the board was organized. Upon this motion Judge Towner held with the county attorney and issued an order to the sheriff to take Ware back to the penitentiary. Ware's attorney1, W. L. Living ston, at once sought a writ of habeas corpus in the court of Judge Banks, of Lee county, but was unsuccessful, Judge Banks ruling that the action should be brought elsewhere. Attorney Livingston then filed ins application for the writ with the su preme court and secured a tempor ary order from Justice McClain. Holds Law is Valid. The high court In its opinion as serts that the first contention of County Attorney Sallman to the ef fect that the law is invalid because it interferes with the power of the governor is unfounded. "The power of the governor," the opinion reads, "to pardon or reprieve criminals, or to commute a sentence pronounced by a court is in no man ner abrogated, restricted or removed by this statute." In knocking out the claim that the law didn't go into effect until July 4, 1907, and that to make it apply to persons convicted prior to that time would make it unconstitutional as being an exposter factor law, the high court says: "There is nothing in the statute which renders it obnoxious to the constitutional inhibition of ex post facto legislation." The supreme court pointed out that no reason existed why the set of persons convicted under the old law and doing time in the penitentiary should be set apart as one class to whom the new law should have 110 manner of application. These persons are entitled to the benefits of the law, it is held, and the law itself is'valid. Hence it was found that Judge Towner's action in recommitting Ware could not„ be sustained and further that. Ware should be re manded to his position and place un der the parole board. Justice Weaver wrote the opinion. It was concurred in by the entire court, no dissenting opinion being recorded. Kills Wojild-Be .Slayer.. A merciless murderer is appendi citis with many victims.

M., Feb. 24.—Ed itor Reporter: Agreeable to promise made you several weeks ago, the un dersigned will try to give you his idea of this land of "perpetual sun shine." Have been .in New. Mexico near three months now and have become somewhat acquainted with the coun try, its climate and conditions. We are situated in San Miguel county, Las Vegas being the county seat. It is one of the oldest and most popu lous in the territory, yet there are, thousands of acres open to home stead entry. "Iowa City," as we call our settlement, is about thirty-five miles from Las Vegas, eighteen miles from Watrous and about twelve miles from Shoemaker, our postoflice town. We have mail by star route three times a week. Las Vegas is a city of several thousand, has electric lights and street cars and is an up-to-date place. Chicago capitalists and leading physicians of that, city with wealthy residents of Watrous are planning to establish the largest sanatorium in the world a*t Watrous. The Knights of Pythias are also arranging to build an up-to date sanatorium for that order in the United States at Las Vegas. But it is not all gold that glitters, neither is this country for everybody. If you can't make a living in Iowa you can do equally as well in New Mexico or any other new country. If you own a good home or farm in Iowa, better be satisfied, unless you are willing to put up with the hard ships incident to frontier life for a number of years. This is a beautiful*country to look at, but whether it will produce is yet largely to be tested. There has been very little cultivation of the land in this vicinity, the land being con trolled in the past by sheep and cat tle ranchmen. The climate here is certainly ideal. While you in Iowa and other states have been in the throes of winter's blasts, New Mexico has had but one day this winter that could be termed a disagreeable one. Most of the time you can work outdoors without a coat. Many farmers have been plow ing for the past three weeks. The soil is extra mellow and works up like a garden. Those who have lived here two or three years claim they can raise most all kinds of crops and fruits. Stock lives on the range all winter with very little feed. Such complaints as colds and sore throats are unknown in thi§ locality. As a health resort, perhaps, New Mexico has no superior in the united States. Conditions here for those who are seeking more "worlds to conquer" are equal if not superior to any coun try with which I am at ...., familiar. There is plenty of good land here yet that can be homesteaded, but it is being taken up very rapidly. In this county 1 know of some twenty fam ilies who are from Iowa, and hence we have called our settlement "Iowa City." We are building a new school bouse and expect before long to start an :vi. E. church structure, the near est being located at Watrous. Sever al new residence houses are being built in this township—one of them being upon the 160 acres homestead ed by the writer this winter. The scenery in this country is be yond description. On either side of us are the mountains with their snow topped peaks. The canyons are dotted with pine and spruce timber, and have many fine springs of water. The only fuel used in this section is pine, which costs you nothing but the getting and cutting. There is plenty of wild game and fish in this country. The mountain lion, bear, deer, turkeys, etc. can be found in th6 canyons two or three miles from where we live. Plenty of wild geese and ducks on the rivers and lakes. Unles| you have enough to live on for a year I would advise you not to move to any new country. Work here for the white man is hardly to be had. The Mexican will work with his team for $1 a day and board him self. That is big pay for them, unless you stay right there with them and see that they work. I know, for we have had several of them working for us. This rambling letter has been written while I "bossed" six of the Mexicans who are building a new stone barn and digging a well for my son Bert. If there are any questions to ask about this country I will try to answer them in future letters when I have less -"farm cares" to burden my mind. Fraternally yohrs, Lon H. Boydston. CATARRH WILL GO.

The supreme court has handed down an opinion affirming the ac tion of Judge Preston of Iowa coun ty, in removing Mayor A. M. Hen derson, of Marengo, under the provisions of the new Cosson law, says the Register and Leader. In appealing to the supreme court the validity and constitutionality of the law were attacked but the su preme justices held that the law was sound and should stand. The evidence in the case was that Mayor Henderson was a drinking man. He admitted this, but denied that he ever became intoxicated. Testimony was introduced, however, which convinced the trial court that he had been intoxicated in office, and he was accordingly removed. Over this phase of the case Mayor Henderson's attorneys argued that the court should distinguish between aiisconduct in office and in private. They asserted that whatever the mayor did while not on duty could not be charged up to him as an official. Chief Justice Deemer in his opin ion dismissed this, however, by say ing that the court could not under stand how a person could be "priv ately intoxicated and officially sober." The duties of a mayor are continuous, it was held, and he was responsible for his acts as an official all of the time. ("apt. ISogardus Again lilts the Mull's Kye.

We often speak of the blessings we enjoy but we seldom really think of how numerous they are. They are more than we think—almost infinite. The Bible tells us to ask and we shall receive, but if each one had to ask for every blessing he enjoys how few of .them he would receive. We would forget some of the most important ones. Would you remember each day to ask for sight, for health, for bodily strength, the sense of hearing, they are God-given just as much as smelling, tasting, etc. We are not a bit thankful for these things and yet they are God-given just as much as anything we have. How few appreciate good homes. Perhaps they are not homes that daz zle with the splendor of beautiful furniture but they are good homes because they are places of comfort, where we can take our ease. Isn't a good home something to be thankful for? Then we have plenty to eat and plenty to wear, and isn't that some thing to be thankful for? The following lines from Henry van O'Dyke are certainly full of cheer and may help us to think of more that we may have to be thankful for: "To be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and.to look up at the stars to be satisfied with your pos sessions but not contented with your self until you have made the beet of them to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and mean ness, and to fear nothing except cowardliness to be governed by your admirations, rather than by your dis gusts to covet nothing that is your neighbor's, except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manner to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ and to spend as much time as you can, with body and spirit, in God's out of doors these are little guide posts on the footpath to peace."
