To The Trade:
In view of the fact that our government now requires unlimit-
ed credit in order to prosecute the war, thereby curtailing com
mercial credits, it has become necessary for us, under the prevail
ing unusual conditions to make a change in our terms all whole
sale firms throughout the country are selling their merchandise on
very restricted terms. Under these circumstances we wish to
announce to the trade that, commencing August 1, our terms will
be STRICTLY CASH,
We regret the necessity that compels us to make this change
but believe you appreciate the fact that these abnormal conditions
are beyond our control.
In changing our terms to CASH we will be in a better position
to sell goods cheaper and give you better service. We feel con
fident we will have your full co-operation, thereby assisting the
government in its work.

while standing on the street, to
the wonderment of the Saturday

Some were under the impres
sion that Dr. Crocker with his

lookout for the menacing "bug"
known as a German airoplane,
but this fear was soon dispelled.

Old Time Miner Dead
"Happy," a dark skinned son
of Ham, porter at a local saloon,
became infatuated with an am
ber hued woman of "society"
who visited Lordsburg recently.
Infatuation "got the betteY "of
"Happy's" judgment, which
caused Judge Marsalis to fine
"Happy" ten dollars for illicit
love, and the woman got ten
days in the city bastlle. Judge
Marsalis, in sentencing "Hap-
Ey," gave warning that Lords

the same punishment if they vi

A farmer dropped in upon the
... . j ...
liberty loan committee in
town,! toward the close of the
subscription period, placed a
milk ( an on the table, removed
the cover and emptied the con
tents. That milk can contained
the savings of years, in copper,
silver and gold coins and notes.
When counted, the cash was
found to amount to a goodly sum.
"I never put my money In a
bank," said the farmer, "but I4vj
been thinkin' it over, an' I guess
Í can trust Uncle Sam." No
doubt he was typical of a much
larger element of the population
than is actually known. Chris

Albuquerque to attend the gen
eral convention and post gradu

toreturn by June 24th.
Hats Of to Our Neighbors
While Luna county is felicitat
ing over having nearly doubled
her quota in the recent Red Cross
drive, she can well afford to
extend the hand of congratulation
to her neighbor counties, Grant
and "Dona Ana, both of whom
more than trebled their quota.
Grant with n goal of $15,000,
passed $51,000. Dona Ana.whose
quota was $4,250, went over
$15,000. The achievement of
Dona Ana is undoubtedly tho
more remarkable, as the big
mining companies were respon
sible for a large partof the Grant
county total, but nobody has any
wish to detract from her splendid
achievement on that .account.
Here's hats off to our nlcghbors,
Grant and Dona Ana. They beat
us, but It is a beating we could
take with perfect good grace and
cheerfulness. Doming Graphic.
