for it. The firm intends to run

Thomas Anderson, a former
resident of this county, who went
to the Red River country over a
year ago, to farm and mine, writes
that it will not pay to farm in the
valley there, too much hard work
and expense to raise and market
crops. He gives advice as follows:
”1 shall i>o back to old Baca in
the spring ns I have not found
anything to equal it for cattle. 1
will advise all old settlers who
are getting along as they are in
Baca county to stay there and
hold it down, as they will come ]
out ahead. This country is fit for!
nothing only gray wolves and i
Mexicans, and they get pretty
hungry sometimes".
A fellow away down about
Wichita wants the Colorado farm
ers to let all the water in the
Arkansas riverllow past so they
can get it. In other words they
ask the farmers up this way to sit,

stream go by. The Wichita par
lies who ask the courts to inter
fere know little ol irrigation. It
lhe water should go by it would
be taken up by evaporation and
absorption before running the 300
miles intervening. There is a
q icstion if the water used in Colo
ratio does not (iml its way back to
the underflow of the Arkansas. A
great portion ol it no doubt does.
There is not water sufficient in
in this small river to irrigate all
the land in Colorado contiguous to

It is not an impossibility.

A Great Magazine Feature.
The Ladies’ Home Journal has
I secured what promises to In* the |
J great magazine feature ol IS9B.
It is entitled “The Inner Fxperi
dices of a Cabinet Member's |
Wife.” In a series ol letters writ j
ten by tiie wife ot a Cabinet mem j
her to her sister at home, are de- j
tailed her actual experiences in j
Washington, frankly Mid freely ;
given. The letters were written I
without any intention ol publi
cation. They give intimate peeps
| behind the curtain i.f high official |
I and social life. They are abso-!
iutely fearless, they study Wash j
ington life under the searchlight J
ias it has never before been tire- i
jsented. The President and the j
highest officials ol the land, with j
the most brilliant men and |
women ol the Capital, arc seen in ;
tiie most familiar way. As these I
are all actual experiences the
name of the writer is withheld.
The lett rs will doubtless excite
much shrewd guessing by readers
and study of internal evidence to
discover the secret. The “Fxperi
dices,” which will be beautifully
illustrated, begin in the December
miinbei 1 and will continue for sev
eral months.

When you write, be aura to mention this newspaper .•
The Real Secret of the unparalleled success
of Tint Chicago Daily News may be
found in two distinguishing characteristics,
which more than anything else have con
tributed to its remarkable growth.
Flkf.T: —lt is a Daily Paper for Busy People.
The people of the busy West appreciate keen
ly the necessity of an'intelligent knowledge
of the world’s doily doings,!ut they arc too
busy to waste valuable time in searching
through a cumbrous** blanket-sheet ” news
paper for the real news of trt, literature
science, religion, politics, and thcthoursn r>
and-one tilings winch make up modern civ
ilization. They want news —all the news—
but they don’t want it concealed in nn over
powering tnassof the trivial ar.d inconsequen
tial. It is because Tin: Chicago Daily
Ni:\vs is “ all wheat and no chafff that
its circulation is over “ a million a we eh."
SECOND:— It is an Independent , Truth-telling
Newspaper. The people demand o fair .im
partial, independent newspaper,which gives
all the neves, anti gives it free frera the taint
of partisan bias. With no mere political am
bition to gratify, no “ ax to grind,” the im
partial, independent newspaper may truly bt
•• guide, philosopher and friend ” to honest
men of every shade of political faith; and this
is why The Chicago Daily News has to
day a circulation of over “a million a week."
The Chicago Daily News now adds to
these two comprehensive elements of popu
larity, a third, in its unparalleled reduction
of price to ONE CENT A DAY.
Ii is always large enough,—never too large..
The Chicago Daily fsiavs is for sale by
all newsdealers at One Gut per copy, cr
will be mailed, postage paid, for sj.oo per
year, or accents per month. The farmer
and mechanic cun now afford, as well as the
merchant r.ntl professional man, to have Ids
mctropolitcn daily.
