Borden of Estey City brought some ore samples to Prof. Jones Saturday for assaying. Professor Jones' class in engin eering was called out Thursday to survey routes for a road from the school of mines to the city. That new furniture is slow in coming but it will be a source of genuine pleasure when it arrives. It is the latest and best in its line. It will be several days yet be fore all improvements at the school are completed. Meantime everybody must possess his soul in patience. The fifth grade pupils of the preparatory department were dis missed Thursday morning until further notice to await the arriv al of the longed for furniture. Mr. Drake's classes now meet him in a remote corner of the basement, but they accept the situation as one possessing the charm of novelty. Miss Fitch and Professor Lin coln, the new members of the faculty, seem to be perfectly at home in their respective depart ments. It is believed that the board has chosen wisely. W. M. Swisher returned home Tuesday morning from a sum mer's vacation spent with rela tives and friends in Illinois. He expects to enter the school of mines next week for special work. Elston Joues says it was so dry and hot in Missouri during the summer that people had to pull their wells up and run them through a clothes wringer to get water enough out of them to make coffee. C. T. Brown, secretary of the board of trustees, received word today that the furniture for the furniture for the school has been shipped from the Denver and L-nicago nouses ana may De ex pected to arrive any day. This is cneering. Four members of the faculty were kept busy at the main building Tuesday morning dur ing the rain until a raging tor rent of water in the arroyo flowed between them and the dinner they yearned for. Learning is a good thing but somehow it fails to satisfy the pangs of hunger. Haynes Howell came in Tues day from the western part of the county to resume work at the school of mines. He waited an hour in the upper part of town for the arroyo to run by and .then swam his horse across. His friends gave him a hearty greet ing as he emerged from the water. According to Press Dispatches the End Came This Morning at 2:15 O'clock Francisco Ruca j Falarde Dead. Francisco Baca y Falarde died in old town, San Marcial, yester day. The remains will be "buried tomorrow, Sunday, morning at 8:30 o'clock. Short services will be conducted at the residence fol lowed by regular services at the Midway Methodist church. All friends of the family are respect fully invited to attend. Deceas ed was the father of Hon. Elfego Baca of this city and A. B. Baca of San Marcial, who will have the sympathy of a large circle of menas in xneir loss. The President is dead. He expired in Buffalo this morn ing at 2:15 o'clock. For six days Mr. McKinley gave every indication of recovery from the effects of the wounds of the assassin. But just when the hearts of millions had abandoned themselves to joy be cause of the President's recovery, there came the news of a sudden change in his condition which prov ed to be fatal. Thus is the nation again plunged into sorrow and humiliation sor row for the loss of a President whom it signally loved and trusted, and humiliation that the freedom it grants to all should be taken advan tage of for the commission of so cruel and cowardly a crime. THE TERRITORIAL FAIR. Socorro County Should Carry off the Honors for llcnl lmoluy or lToiiuctn. Now that so many of the coun ties of the territory are preparing to make displays of their pro ducts at the territorial fair, So corro county should bestir her self to show the public what she can do in this line. Some of the counties of New Mexico can make fine displays of minerals, others can show fine animals, and others again can make good exhibits of theii agricultural products, but Socorro county has been favored by nature to such an extent that she is able to do herself credit in all these lines, and can make a showing of products in all such luies that would command atten tion anywhere. There is no dis trict in New Mexico, or anwhere else in the southwest that has greater mineral wealth, neither is there any that can make a better display of farm and garden products or show better and finer animals and, as we have said, now is the time to let the public see what we can do. There will be a large number of prominent people from abroad in Albuquer que during the week of the fair, attracted by the statehood convention, and who are coming to see for themselves whether we are able to maintain a state government and support the population necessary to constitute a state. A good display of the products of the farm, the range and the mine, will do more to convince these gentlemen of our producing capacity than all the speeches we could make at them, and every citizen who wants to see the territory become a state is directly interested in making such a display. Now let the Ceople of Socorro county take old of the matter in earnest. All the people of New Mexico know that our county is unexcelled for its natural resources, and they will expect us to give a good account of ourselves. Albuquerque Fair. Oct. 15-10.

The following is clipped from the annual report, just out, of territorial coal mine inspector Jo. E. Sheridan of Silver City: Socorro county has coal mines at Carthage, 12 miles southeast of San . Antonio, where the Carthage mine is owned by the Carthage Coal company. The vein is S feet thick and produced 13,000 tones of coal, valued at $23,400 last year. Fifty men were employed for 275 days. Carthage ! No. 3 is in 2,500 feet and Carthage No. 3 is in ISO feet. A strike decreased the production of these mines. The Duffy mine is owned by Robert Duffy & Co. It produced 1,116 tons of coal last year and employed 14 men 130 days. The vein is 5 feet and 8 inches thick, and the slope is in 225 feet. This is a new mine. Stood Death Off. E. B. Munday, a lawyer of Henrietta, Tex., once fooled a grave-digger. He says: "My brother was very low with malarial fever and jaundice. I persuaded him to try Electric Bitters, and he was soon much better, but continued their use until he was wholly cured. I am sure Electric Bitters saved his life." This remedy expels malaria, kills disease germs and purifies the blood; aids digestion, regulates liver, kidneys and bowels, cures constipation, dyspepsia, nervous diseases, kidney troubles, female com plaints; gives perfect health. Only 50c at all druggists, V. M. Borrowdale, Magdalena, drug store. X Card of Thank. I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to the many kind friends of Socorro for their goodness and courteous kindness in every way to me and my loved child during the last 14 years of our many severe afflictions. In going, I leare the only home I shall ever have. Hoping, if our Heavenly Father gives me strength to return, I may not be forgotten and a kindly welcome will await us again, my deep and heartfelt prayer is that "God be with us all till we meet again."

William Spencer of Bland, superintendent of the Cochiti Gold Mining Company, returned Thursday from a visit to the Mogollón district in company with C. T. Brown of this city. Mr. Spencer expressed himself as well pleased with what he saw in , the Mogollons. He stated that there were at least a dozen excellent prospects in the part of the district that he visited. Nearly all of these can produce what under ordinary circumstan ces would be good shipping ore. Eighty miles of transportation to a railroad, however, makes it impossible to mine any but the very richest ore to a profit. In Mr. Spencer's opinion a railroad into the Mogollons would make it possible to develop many more excellent mines in that district. He mentioned that the New Era mine as now sacking some rich ore for shipment and that the out look for the mine is excellent. J \n\n day from a trip to Mangas and at her home in ban Marcial.
