THKKAGLKí WEDNESDAY, APRIL K. IH.
5 Obeying Orders. The Campanion gome time ago gave some advice to young people who wish lo lu journuiniM. Now comes the San Francisco Post with a ntory lroin which such aspirants may derive some idea of tlie kind of people who is not likely to succeed in carrying off the honors of that highly honorable profession. "There is one thing you must remem ber in writing up news," said the city editor lo tlie l ew reponer, "lliat is lo tell wliat your story is alum in the first few lines:ha: is give the imbalance of II. Then follow with your recital of the facts and wind it up with interview) with the people concerned. That is the only orderly manner of telling a story, itml I want yon to remember it." That night the new reporter handed in a news item that read as follows: "James Mulligan, the plumber, slipped and fell on Market street yesterday and Hprained bis ankle badly, "Mr. Mulligan was walking along Market street, when suddenly his feet slipped from under him and be fell, spraining une of bis ankles. "When seen by a reporter ho said: 'I was walking along Market street, when in some way my feet slipped from under me and I fell heavily to the sidewalk, spraining one of my ankles.' "Mr. Charles Kelly said ; 1 as walk ing behind Mr. Mulligan on Marke; street when I saw him slip and fall on the sidewalk. When I assisted him to rise he told me he hail Hprained bis an kle.' "Doctor Youiiginan, who attended Mr. Mulligan's injuries, said: 'Mr. Mulligan lias a Hprained ankle. He must have slipped and fallen. Yes, he will I hi laid up for some time.' "Mr. Mulligan could not attend last night's meeting of the Plumbers' Union, and the president, in opening (he meet ing, expressed his regrets that Mr. Mill ligan could not attend, as lie bad slipped and fallen on Market street and sprained bis ankle." Tli Kilily Niitfitr hnliiHtry. The arrival of" .dr. J. J. llagerman in the Pecos Valley is occasion ior tlie pub lication of ibe news that the necesMiry funde, 1100,000, have been raised in Chicago to make up the subscription to if 173.000, the price set upon the migar fariory machinery by creditors who now bold it in Cumula. Work will lie begun at once upon the building and it is ex peeled that the machinery will beirans. ferret! to Ktldy at once. As a result the farmers of that valley will. plant a large acreage to sugar beets this Benson and before next season the Pecos Valley will have milled to ih already remarkable development by the manufacture of a domestic article of sugar from lieet.s of local production. Thus the Pecos Valley furnishes an other valuable lesson to the rrstof New Mexico. It has lieen proved by analysis a number of times that the sugar beet is peculiarly adapted to the conditions of irrigation and character of soil existing in the Kio Grande valley. The success of die Eddy factory of which tiiere can be no doubt, will lie a stimuloiiH to the establishment of others in New Mexico, particularly in the valley of ibe Uio ( i runde, where the acreage of Irrigable land is large and innumerable small parcels are held under separate owner ship acandition extremely favorable to the cultivation of the beet, which calls for intense cultivation and tbtrcfore a lim ited area. The increased consumption of sugar in th.i United Sta es and tac reduce I output of 1801!, especially in Cuba, have contributed at the present time to draw attention to the beet sugar iudestry, and the prosjR'rity of the sugar fac.ories in Nebraska, Utah and California, in upitu of the business depression of the last two years, has given full evidence of the merits of such manufacturing en terprises. So that the undertaking of Mr. llagerman and his associates at this mojiient appears most, timely and full of promise. Albuquerque Democrat. county commissioner. The river is dry.
