"The recital given by Míhs Outre Prewitt in the Presbyterian church last Saturday evening was the most pleasing of the kind that I have been privileged to hear, Miss Prewitt is indeed a delightful entertainer. Her enunciation is perfect, her facial ex presnions wonderful and her power of keeping her audience intent upon the selection most pronounced. Her style is superb in its finish ; her voice is flexible and capable of the most ex quisite modulation. Her selections run the entire gamut from grave to gay, from lively to severe. Scotch dialect, Irish brogue, broken French, or clean, pui'e English present no difficulties, Her program Saturday night afforded the broadest oppor tunities for the display of her versa tility; She hushed her audience into silence, or provoked laughter at will in her wide range of selections, being equally at home in either heroic, pa thetic or dialect reading. Mis Prew itt was assisted by Miss Eva Blnck, one of her pupils, who gave two se lections in such a manner that prom ises well for her future as a reader. Our best mitslcal talent added much to the pleasure of the occasion. All in all, it was an evening long to be remembered. ' The little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Martinez of near Ulaneo died last Saturday. The little one was about two years of agei It sad indeed to have the prattling babe tlip sun shine of the home snacthed as it were from the arms of the parents by the grim hand of Death and Mr. and Mrs. Martinez have the sympathy of their many friends.

The floral offerings were pro fuse and beautiful emblematic! of the noble character and great worth of the dead. Thei'e were fewi perhaps none, in all that large audience who bad not at some time felt the benign influ ence of her friendship, whi"h added to the personal loss. She was a devoted motliei, a kind, generous neighbor ;rf ways' firm in thecanoc of right and justice; We feel that to her soul bus come a new dawn- a new life, and that the freed spirit has passed from the arch of shadows into eternal day; There has been a current report in this section to the effect that the A. & C. (Southern Pacific) Railroad Co. had withdrawn their men from the field and are not going to build into this section. That there is no truth in the report is verified by the fact th: . this company has paid for right of way through thren ranches in this valley and perhaps several more. If you have any doubts as to the verac ity of this statement, The Index would advise you address H. W. Wighrmain Frank uinn or Alex Miller, all of Farmington, as they are the parties who own the ranches referred to. In conversation with C. C. Sroufe, right of way agent for the A. & ('., who was in Aztec Monday evening an Index reprsentive gleunedthe following:. ''The Arizona & Colorado railroad fompany have never entertained one thought of abandoning the field. They wanted the coal in the first place, want it still and arc going to have it regard less of the faet that itliother road has already commenced to build down your valley.
