Copien is enjoying a visit from her father, a resi dant of Mora,- ; Mr W.P. Mealey, Jr: left Tue sday on a business trip to Den ver, Colorado. Mosquero was a very quiet pla co this Fourth of July. The grea t or part of our citizens went to I .osebud to celebrate and those that didn't go to Rosebud cele L ration attended the baseball tame at Tucumcari . Sheriff Thomas, who accompa nied by his family is visiting re latives at the W.P. Mealey ho me in Mosquero the later part of last week, returning to Trinidad this week where he will be can didate for state commander of the Spanish War Veterans. Mr. Thomas is sheriff of Pueblo Co unty, Colorado and reports every thing as being quiet at Pueblo ."..id no noticeable results from the strike at the big steel mills . Yes, we attended the big cele I ration at Rosebud, and it was LOME celebration too. People 1 oured in from all parts of the country until the little town was 1 terally overflowing. Arrange ments had been made, for feed i lg the people, plenty of good ba lbecued meats on hand and sta nds where all kinds of short or ders could be had at a nominal trice, he committee naa aaver .advertised and a ball game bet ween the winner and the Nara Visa 'team for the second day.. A number of the Mosquero pla yers'weré sick áhd unable to ma ke the trip with the. result that the prtígrm was change! and the Amistad team proceeded to clean up on the Nara Visa boys on the first day ancTthere being considerable doubt in the minds lof the Nara Visa rooters about their ability to repeat the per formance, they measured -bats with them again on the second day and encored their previous performance to the tune of 11 to celebration with excitinar soorts it through in such a handsome manner. Local showers have continued j during the last week with the re sult that summer crops are be , ginning to take on a very promis ing look and the prospect of a bumper crop becomes brighter every day. Farmers are kept busy rushing over the fields wi th cushions to be placed under the pumpkins and melons to keep them from being dragged to dea th by the rapidly growing vines and the housewives are busy from morn till night preparing the young chickens for the fry ing pan. That there is some har vest in Harding County was evi dence by the announcement at the Rosebud celebration that a number of hands were desired by the farmers for the harvest field and that the farmers were prepared to take any prospecti ve hands home with them for the harvest. Harding County is to have an agricultural agent and he is ex pected to arrive within a few days. Mr Strong, at one time of Ocate, Mora County, and recen tly county agricultural agent of Torrence County, has been ap pointed to the position and will commence his work immediately. He comes strongly reccomended as a competent, educated, hustl ing agricultural gent and we doubt very much that if left to the vote of the people of the county a more competent man for this part of the state could have been found. . i Probate Court is in session this week, but reports rather a light docket and but little mattér of general importance to comé before it at this session. The re gular meeting of the county com missioners , which should have net Monday was postponed until 1 the tenth of the month Oh ac count of the. Fourth of .July ce lebrations .in' the .different parts of the counties. Mrs J.B. Duva l, accompanied by her son, Paul and Harry Kin gsbury and wife, left for an ex tended automobile trip through the Northwestern part of this state, Colorado and Utah where they will spend their summer vacation sight-séeing and rusti cating in the mountains . . The new building commenced byR.L. Keller on east Main street, is now neáring comple tion and wiV be occupied by the meat market.' The Durrin busi ness building is also nearing com pletion while the residence hou ses of Mrs G. Gallegos and R. Lopez will soon be ready for the roofs. Building activities still continue in the county seat and from all appearances seems to scarcly have commenced as yet. The old statement- that the "World do move" has been chan gd locally to a confident state ment that "Mosquero-db grow." Mrs Belle Morford, of Black Lake, is enjoying a visit from her daughters from Amarillo, Texas, who announce that they have come with the intention of taking their mother back to Te xas with them for a 'visit. I:Trr Morford states that sho i" '.-'decided as to whether she will ma ke the visit or not but is being sorely teinpted by the persuasión of her daughters and we ventu re to predict that she will yield in a short time. (Contiued from pajee one scores to the Tucumcari team However he immeciaMy tigh tened up and pitched real ball for the remainder of the game and Tucumcari never was able to score again. Roy has lost two games this season out of 12, which is. surely an enviable record, and the boys know they cannot win all games, hence "they figure1 that a defeat was due them Tuesday and they got it. Out. side of 'the - last.halt of the fourth inning the game was a 'dandy and if it could have beeV eliminated thé whole story could have been different. . , One of the noticeable features of the game Tuesdayr. was the fairness of umpires Sehultz. arid.
