Roy Needs Better Mail Service
The people and business men of
Roy should get together and demand
a better mail service. All mail ad
dressed to Dawson, Taylor, Abbott,

A mail clerk could be placed on
the Dawson train, thus we' would ob
tain much quicker and better service.
W should also petition the Govern
ment for a mail route between here

The running at large of cattle, sheep
hogs goats or burros is a violation of

Who's Who In New
Grant County Goes Instructed For
Andrews. Chaves And San Juan
Are Friendly To Him.
The Grant County Republicans held
their convention August 3rd and elect
ed six delegates to represent Grant
county at Santa Fe, August 18th. The
six delegates were instructed to vote
for the renomination of Delegate W.
Chaves and San Juan counties also
held their conventions and while their
delegates are to go uninstructed, the
majority of them favor the renomina
tion of W. H. Andrews. Mora county
held her convention yesterday and we
feel confident and ardentlv hope she
will stand by her sister counties and
send delegates favorable to Andrews,
HON. W. H. ANDREWS.
Never bef ore has New Mexico enjoy
ed the position and high standing at
the National Cap.tal as he dois today.
No Delegate of New Mexico ever
commanded the respect of powerful
political men as does Hon. W. H. An
drews. His associates and boiler gues
are powerful men in the senate, such
as Senator Penrose of Penn. who is
now a leader in Taft's Campaign.
What explanation can we give for
New Mexico faring better than any
other Congressional District? Did she
ever before receive a $.50,000 appropia
tian for irrigation purposes, which is
almost double her share. Was there
ever before such efforts made for fur
thering the interests of the Vdterans
of the Indian, Civil aud Spanish
wars? Was there ever before such
liberal appropriations for public build
ings as has been since Delegate W. H.
Andrews has been at the helm?
What New Mexico has long wanted
is statehood and with Mr. Andrews
representing her, she will get statehood
in a very short time. Although Mr.
Andrews has two worthy opponents,
shall we trade a known quality for the
Let us stand by our present delegate
who has done so much for the uplift
ing of New Mexico and who has the
strength in Congress to do so much
more, and let us work for the renomi
nation of Mr. Andrews and help him
to complete the great work which he

AN ACT OF CHARITY.

This mart had some earned taonev

one seems to know where he came from
or if he had any relatives.
This matter was brought to, the at
tention of the Swastika Dramatic Club
and they decided at once to investigate
the matter by á special committee
composed of A. S. Bushkevitz,; Jacob
Floersheim and H. ' Goodman as to
taking the remains and giving
them a respectable burial. j
This is great work on the part of
the Swastika Dramatic Club and they

most all of 'em want to marry doods.
Why the Lord made girls nobody

church and eat ice cream. There is
three kinds of girls, brunet girls,
blond girls and them that has money.
