TIiíh increase in attendance will necessitate the employment of one or inore additional teachers and will make the territorial normal school here one of the most important educational institutions in New Mexico. The selection of Sil ver City as the lo cation for one of the normal schools was MTl IT ,,,-. g i Ms, ... &Al of the act creating the independent school district of Silver City there has scarcely been a year that a special tax has not heen voted to maintain the school. It is in such a community as this that the normal school has been successfully started and it is needless to add that it will not suffer for want of supporters and friends in this part of the territory. The completion of the normal school building, at an early day, is assured. There yet remains some of the fund ap propriated by the last legislature, and this amount will go toward pacing for the completion of the building. The $10,000 in bonds voted by the council last Saturday afternoon will not, in all probability, liecome available until the next session of congress as that body ad journs this week and will not have time to act on the bond matter, and the lioiids cannot be issued without the sanction of congress. Arrangements may 1 made, however, for the work to be' done before the meet ing of congress as there is no doubt whatever in regard to the action of that CHOI'. (1. W.

The roail to Mogollón might be short ened by a couple of miles by making a road which would follow the course of the telephone line. Most of the work would have to be done within a mile or so of this city. The traille between this city and the Mogollóos will justify the expenditure of a considerable sum of money in improving the road and build ing a bridge across the Gila. The recent cold wave which swept over the territory demonstrated that the climate of Silver City is the finest in the territory. At Las Vegas the thermome ter registered 25 lelow zero, at Albu queriie the temperature was 11 lielow, at Santa Ke it was 15 below, while here it was only 2 below and it must be re membered that these ligures are the lowest reached in any of the places named during a period of more than ten years.
