THE CH THE SCHOOL OF MINES A Prosperous Institution of Learning That is the Pride of New Hexico. IT HAS AN IDEAL LOCATION A Fine Thiitdiinr That Is Equipped with Modern Apparatus and In struments A Prospective Annual Appropriation by the Government. The New Mexico School of Mines is a territorial institution, founded by the territorial legisla ture in 1889. Several of the states of the Union far less boun tifully blessed in the line of minerals than New Mexico is early recognized the advantages that would accrue from institu tions of this class, and made haste to establish such insti tutions, and have since given them a liberal support. Long before ISii'J New Mexico was known to be exceedingly rich in mineral resources. It did not require, therefore, great insight to recognize the importance of establishing within the territory a school in which should be taught the most scientific methods of mining and treating such ores as were known to exist in abund ance, and such other ores as would doubtless be discovered later. The wisdom of the terri torial legislature is establishing Vuch a school has been amply vindicated. OBJKCT OF Tin: SCHOOL. The object of the institution is set forth specifically in section 28 of the act creating it, as follows; "The object of the school of mines created, estab lished and located by this act is to furnish facilities for the education of such persons a;-, may desire to receive instruction in chemistry, metallurgy, mineralogy, geology, miwing, milling, engineering, mathematics, mechanics, draw ing, the fundamental laws of the United States and the rights and duties of citizenship, and such other courses of study, not including agriculture, as may be prescribed by the board of trustees." The scope of the work thus prescribed is broad enough to include all means necessary to the attainment of the object of the school. On account, however, of circumstances connected with the public school system of the territory, a later legislature found it necessary to provide for a preparatory course by which students could be fitted for the technical work of the institution. Such a course has since been maintained. SUPPORTED BY THE TKRK1TOKY. The creating act provides that the school of mines shall be supported by an annual tax of one-fifth of a mill on all taxable property within the territory. It was thought that this levy would give the institution au income of about $10,000 a year, but it was not until 1893 that a special appropriation was made for a suitable building to enable the school to be organized in accord ance with the policy of this act, and the great financial panic of that year so reduced the assessed valuation of property within the territory that the school's income was reduced toonly about one-half of the amount anticipated. However, the last territorial legislature generously and wisely increased the levy for this purpose to 27;á-100ths of a mill: fi'dkkai, aid :-:xn:cTi:. The friends of the school are uow hopeful that it is soon to receive such federal aid as will make it possible to place the institution on a much higher plaaeof usefulness than ispossiblc under present conditions. The first session of the fifty-sixth congress took the preliminary steps toward extending to the mining industry the same aid that is extended to that of agri culture. Several bills were introduced, all having the same object, that of giving federal aid tostimulate and promote scientific research in the various branches of mining and metallurgy. The friendsof these several bills finally united upon one introduced by (Continued on Page 4.) BIAVASCI I PS.

Silas Alexander Ú A Note. There are many alleged cream of tartar baking powders upon the market sold at lower prices, which prove, upon analysis, to be alum powders in dis guise. Alum is a corrosive poison, which must not be taken in the food.

The Newbury port (Mass.) Morning Herald of August 31 contains an account of an annual reunion of the Chase family.

Brown and J. 1. Chase, are members. Anybody who chooses to visit the Crown mill these days will find that institution doing a thriving business. The mill ia equipped with modern machinery and the quality of its product is best attested by the ready sale it finds. John Grecnwald, the manager, has already purchased about 9,000 fanegas of wheat this season and more is arriving daily. Thus fully $12,000 will b distributed among the farmers within a dozen miles of Socorro up and down the valley. Not" less than 800,000 pounds of wheat is now stored in the company's warehouse alone while other buildings near at hand have been rented for storage purposes. Tho mill will doubtless continue to run night and day until the next crop of wheat is harvested, This means much for Socorro. CRESCENT WHEELS. GENTLEMAN'S CHAINLESS.
