The New Mexican of February 14 gives the following sketch of the life of Hon. Thomas A. Fini cal, well and favorably known in Socorro county, and the circum stances connected with his death. lion. Thomas A. Finical, dis trict attorney for the counties of Bernalillo, Valencia and McKin ley, died yesterday afternoon of pneumonia at his home at Albu querque. While his condition had leen such as to cause the gravest fears for his life, the reports received yesterday morn ing from his bedside were en couraging, and the announcement of his' death came somewhat in the nature of a shock to his many friends. Mr. Finical was born in Har rison county, O.,. on October 22, 1867, where he resided until 16 years of age, when he went to northern Minnesota, where he taught school for a year. In 1889 he graduated from the Kansas Normal school at Fort Scott, and in 1881 received the degree LL.B. at the Kansas State University Law School. On July 1, 1891, he came to Albuquerque, where he engaged in the practice of law as a member of the firm Johnson & Finical. He was elected to the territorial council in 1S96 and again in the election of 1898. He served three years as city at torney of Albuquerque. He was appointed by Governor Otero in the summer of 1S97, and acquitted himself well in that responsible position, which is left vacant by his death. Mr. Finical was prominent in Odd Fellow circles, and was a member of the local lodge of Masons. Only a few weeks ago the engagement of Mr. Finical to an estimable young lady of Albu querque, Miss Euphemia Nelson, was announced. At the Nelson home the gentleman was most devotedly cared for during his illness, "and there the body will remain until taken away for burial. A LOBO CHASE. Dog Springs, Feb. 6. Editor Chieftain: For the past two years lobos have been coming to this country from the south. They are very destructive to small cattle. They hardly ever kill anything bigger than a yearling, but somet.mes when there are our or five of them they kill grown cattle. On the third of February I took the hounds out for a hunt. I soon found the tracks of two wolves and turned the hounds loose on the trail, which I fol lowed eight or ten miles. I then met Frank Davis, who fell in with the chase. Our horses soon gave ' out. Luckily we found a bunch of horses near by and I got a change and went on after the wolves; but Frank had to drive the horses to a corral to catch one so he didn't get in the chase any more. My brother Laurence, having heard the hounds, was coming up from another direction. While he stopped to let his his horse get its wind, the wolf on my side of the canon evidently smelt me and started directly towards my brother. He let go a steel jacket into the wolf's mid-section and the animal fell dead within a few feet of the place where it was shot. This was in the mountains near Dog Springs. The next day we went out and gave the other wolf a chase but the country was so rough and the hounds so tired from their chase of the day before that we did not get him. Walt Mkdlkv. how to cuke tub grip. Remain quietly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Reme dy as directed anda quick recovery is sure to follow. That remedy counteracts any tendency of the grip to result in pneumonia, which is really the only serious danger. Among the tens of thousands who have used it for the grip not one case has ever been reported that did not recover. i or sale by A. L. Howell, bocor ro; W. W. Borrowdale, Magdalena. A Voto or Thank. The ladies of the Episcopal Church Guild desire to express their thanks for the kind and valuable assistance rendered them in assuring the success of the musical lecture recently de livered in this city by the Rev. Joseph McConncll. Especial thanks are extended to the officers of the Presbyterian church for the loan of chairs, to the gener ous owner of the hall for its free use, to the ladies and gentlemen whose charming voicc9 contrib uted largely to the enjoyment of the evening, to others whose cor dial assistance in various ways made possible the comfort of the audience and smooth program of the entertainment, and last but not least for the generous adver tising by Thr Chieftain, all of which combined to render the oc casion a most enjoyable as well as successful one. Th Ladifs of the Episcopal Church Guild. pnf.umonia can be prevented. This disease always results from a cold or an attack of the grip and may be prevented by the timely use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. That remedy was cxensively used during the epidemics of La Grippe of the past few years, and not a single case has ever been reported that did not recover or that resulted in pneumonia, which shows it tobe a certain preventive of that dangerous disease. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has gained a world wide reputation for its cures of colds and grip. For sale by A. E. Howell, Socorro; W. W. Borrowdale, Magdalena. Nutifo to the Public. Magdalena, N.

Rumor has it that he will return tomorrow morning, but not alone. If Mr. Fischer is really a married man he will be met on his return with the congratulations and good wishes of a host of friends in Socorro. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Cox and Mrs. Jos. Cox arrived in town Tuesday from the Datils. Mrs. Jos. Cox was on her way to her home near Springfield, Colorado, where the Cox brothers have recently started a cattle ranch. The party experienced a severe snow storm Monday while cross ing the San Augustine plains. Mr. Cox stated that the snow was more than a foot deep on the plains, also that the prospect was good 'or an excellent year for cattlemen in western Socorro county, as the grass would be sure to be good early in the sea son and thus prevent the usual large percentage of loss of calves. Attorney II. M. Dougherty re turned Wednesday morning frjm Ilillsboro where he had been for several days for the purpose of conducting the preliminary ex amination of David Allen, who brutally murdered James Murrah, alias Buck Powell, on Monday, December 17, in Meyers' saloon, at Fairview.
