son Fouth will be a county event,

iurther understanding that the next
pear's celebration will be given by
Zimarron, and that it will receive the
Tf pim tri thp Citizen that l
of the most pressing needs of Cim- P" 8UPPort f Dawson.
nrron is a combined effort on the
part of everyone to extend our trade
with outside cities and postoffices,
and to increase the volume of busi
ness to that point which Cimarron
tW'serves by reason of its advanta
geous position in this world. The
world is happy and we. are happily
placed in it just where we ate. But
let us better ourselves, and at the
same time make others happy, by
allowing them to come to Cimarron
and buy. The road between here and
Halls Peak, Ocate and Martinez is
almost impassible at places, especi
ally so on the Rayado Hill.' All the
towns mentioned should be, by right,
tributary to Cimarron. Sort of sub
burbs, as it were. We get some of
their trade, but not enough. Most
of the people in the district men'
tioncd go to Wagon Mound, over
forty-five miles away, and simply
because the roads are better. The
Our sister city is now making
rreat preparations for a glorious time
n the Fourth. All kinds of enter
tainments will be given. Every
kind of race will be run, prizes with
out number ill be offered. Fireworks
beyond imagination will be set off.
Speeches by our foremost men will
be heard, and, in fact, everything
will be done that will add to the
pleasure of the occasion, even to
to bringing in the spectacular "Erup.
tion of Mt. Vesuvius." When Daw
son undertakes anything, it carries it
through with a vim and a snap that
cannot be equaled in the Territory,
and so everyone may expect the very
best of good times.
SCHOOL ELECTION
Notices of a school election to be
leld the first Monday in April, have
only very bad strip is up the Rayado, fccn posted by H. H. Chandler, the
Hill. Less than a mile needs a j :a" being issued by Territorial Su
great amount of work done, but this perintendent Fisher. The purpose of
mile will cost some money. Why
not get together, and start a move
ment for an appropriation to fix up
this part of the road? It will pay
in the end. Try it and see.
WHAT CIMARRON NEEDS.
In our , last issue,' the benefits to
be derived from planting shade
trees all around the city, were set
forth, and it-was urged that every-
one plant a few trees at least. A
few of the more enterprising Cim
arromtes have made arrangements
to get young native trees- at a very
nominal cost. They have stated that
anyone wishing trees could leave his
name and the number desired at the
Citizen office and the ' trees would
be furnished Mm at cost."
In connection with planting trees,
H. K. Grubbs has advanced a good
idea. Mr. Grubbs recognizes the
benefits of trees, and advocates'' the
plan of having a sort of arbor day.
His plan contemplates inducing
every man, woman and child in
Cimarron to plant at least one tree
and to undertake to attend to that
tree. In this manner, each tree will
be known by the name of the person
who planted it, ami no little rivalry
in attempting to grow the best tree
would arise, making the work inter
esting and pleasant, as well as bene
ficial. Can't we all get together and
adopt some sort of. plan? Why
shouldn't we work for Cimarron in
all things, and make a beginning by
planting trees?
HUSBAND MAY SIGN
DEED ALONE.
The supreme court of the territory
hat just handed down a very im
portant decision, which holds that a
husband can convey land and give
give good title thereto, without the
wife signing. Provided, however,
that the land was comnfunity prop
erty, the title of which was obtained
prior to- the act of March 20th, 1901
of the general assembly, and further
provided that such conveyance was
not nude. in fraud of the wife's ex
pectancy. This decision may , give
great relict to some hen-pecked hut
hand1. ....
;he election is to choose two sckool
cirectors for District No. Three. One
director will be elected for a term
of two years and one will be elected
for a term of three years. The polls
will be open from 8 a. m. to 5 p. ni.
It has been decided to hold a cau
cas of the qualified electors in the
school district for the -purpose of
(;iving them a better opportunity t
t:lect ,whom they will put before th
people at the polls. The coucus will
be held at the school house on March
28th for the purpose of making nomi
nations. - The official notice of the
caucus is ,to be found elsewhere in
this edition.
BASEBALUHANGE UP
.subsequent to the meeting of the
Cimarron and Dawson base ball en
thusiasts, a change in the arrange
ments has been advocated. While
the change will not effect the plans
Cimarron and Dawson have already
made, it is intended to make the
scope broader and more interesting,
f . the new , idea goes through, a
league will be formed, and each team
anil be' allowed' to ' hire .'two profes
sional, ball, playes. Then a schedule
will be 'arranged, ; and every , third
week he management, vbich , will
fie. vested in a' sort of board of di
rectors, ,wtyl arrange a game with any
outside'. team' that cafes, ttf accept' a
game.' The league 'will pick its best
playérs from all : the teams, elect a
captain; and put this league team up
against all comers for any purse they
may designate.' ' . '
This arrangement will insure most
cordial relations between each and
every team and, town represented in
the league,, and at -the same time af
ford tbe county a chance to see the
best of ball games without any one
person or organization of persons
bearing all the expense of maintain
ing a fast set of ball players. It is
further the plan to send the pick
team to. Albuquerque next fall and
compete for the prizes the fair man
agement always offers.
MAY LOCATE HERE.
Mr. Robert Sammon, who was a
business visitor at Cimarron last
week, states that he is planning to
move his family from Sweet Water
to Cimarron.' Mr. Sammon has a
contract to deliver 100,000 feet of
lumber at the McCormick ranch, the
lumber to be used in connection with
the big irrigation enterprise of which
Mr. George Webster is the managing
head.
BLEW OUT ROOF.
Not saatsfied wiih the way the
rng niwnü was attempting 10 tear
things to pieces last Thursday, M.
N. Winters did a little blowing
stunt of his own. In excavating the
'cellar . for the . new quarters of
i:he Crocker Merchantile. Co., it was
decided 0, loosen the earth by blast-;
ing. A too heavy charge of explo
re was put in, and the flying deb
it:) went right through the second
Üoor and the roof as well. The blast
aused no little evcitement among
a few passersby, although the ,dam-
fjc done will not be great. :? .
HAVE RETURNED
FROM THE EAST
Mr. and Mrs. Chadles Springer
have returned to Cimarron from
New York, after an evtended ab
sence. Mrs. Springer has been in
New York for the last two months,
being joined there by Mrs. Kohl
housen of Raton. While in the me
troplis, Mrs. Springer suffered from
a severe and painful accident. Slip
ping on a small piece of ice, she fell
violently and injured her wrist,,
breaking one of the large bones!
While not dangerous, the injury has
been most painful.
We call special attention to the ad
vertisements in this week's issue -of
the Citizen, and request our readers
