The Optic has an exchange list
consisting of the important papers of
the country which was ' obtained at
no little trouble and expense. We
went to the trouble and paid the ex
pense although you may not believe
it. This exchange list has & strong
attraction for some people around
town who come In and read. They
are welcome. But that Is not the real
burden of our song. Some people
who come in to read carry away the
papers with them. One person went
so far as to open our unopened mail,
by Jove! Now what do you think of
thatT We call it the height of un
adulterated gall. Hereafter no more
exchanges are to be taken from this
qfflce. They are our property and
we need them In. our business. If
yoa need them In yours, remit the
money and have the paper sent to
you. We want it distinctly under
stood that you can't take ours.

What other practical nations call
movements, we characteristically call
"waves". The fight against graft in
municipal politics was a wave; prohi
bition is a wave; the direct primary
is a wave; the reaction against the
impure drama is a wave; the Teddy
bear was a wave, and the present-day
passion, for living In bungalows is a
wave. We have been sentimental
enough to gq wild over such inherent
ly, fascinating subjects as conserva
tion and desert irrigation on the one
hand, and the proper punishment for
kidnaping on tho other. We are sen
timental enough to have indulged
these later years In a process of
beartrsearchlng of which Bishop Wil
liams's sermon is a very good specimen.

meeting ot the board of directors of
the Trinidad chamber of commerce
to be held at an early date. Tha first
step along the line of freight ind ex

the Schneider Brewing company,
which gained their point by informing
the Santa Fe officials that they could
haul their products to Raton over the
Colorado fctate highway cheaper than
shl ) it under tho existing rate. Fol
lowing this reduction the Wells Fargo
Express company announced a big
cut between the two points, and
Geo'ge Mason, of the Trinidad Candy
company also secured a better" rate
to Raton. The next step will be an
effort to get rates to Gallup, . M.,
as well as a number of other points in
tha' territory. The chamber of com

Old-timers of this city will learn
with regret of the death In Fairmont,
W. Va., on July 3 of Rev. Jeremiah
Engle, some fifteen years ago pastor
of the Methodist church In this city.
Regarding his death the Fairmont
West Virginian says:
A wave of sadness swept, over this
community when it was learned that
Rev. Jeremiah Engle had passed
away, hie death occurring at two-thirty
o'clock this morning at his home
on Walnut avenue. While Rev. Engla
had been dangerously ill for several
weeks, and his condition had been
alarming in ithe past few days, never
theless the news of his death was
a great shock to this community. He
had been in failing health for about
three years, having suffered a partial
paralytic stroke rind for the past few
months his health had failed percep
tibly and in the last week or ten
days his death has been almost mom
entarily expected. '
"The cause of his death was hemi
plegia and during the weeks of hla
illness he had been a great sufferer,
though he bore his sufferings without
a murmur.
"Rev. Engle was born in Philadel
phia, May 31, 1837, and was therefore
seventy-two years of age at the timer
of his death. He was the youngest
of ten children, all of whom lived to
good ages and he was the last of the
family to be called to hla reward.
"The deceased had been for thirty
two years a member of the W. Va.,
Methodist Episcopal conference and1
for a period of years was the sec
retary of ithe conference."
