Published Every Thur manor September j. loto, at the. postoffice M.. under the cl of March 3, 1879." Every "Knock" Is a Boost-Sometimes It is a true and tried saying that "every VttOCÜ is a boost." fend to this can be materially added "(tn.- imea." In the event the saying is true, and it is presumed to 'ie. then, and in that event, Cimarron the Key City is receiv injf some valuable publicity; but No one with a proper amount of intelligence will care to come to a new and yet oldcountry, when he hears nothing but "knocks, "knocks, knocks." And this, gentle reader, whether you live in Colfax county or New York, is exactly the condition with which Cimarron and this sec tion of Colfax county is confronted. Speaking the truth and giving the facts, is not knock ing; it is a boost, good word and cheer. Telling a lie, is the little instrument with thorn and thistle, that grits on the inner man; and the one who resorts to it, is as dead as the petrified forests in Arizona, and as little as a fllea on the end of a fly's tail. Before one knocks a careful inventory should be taken of the three million cells, called the huniati brain, and as certain in a qniet and secluded place, whether that piece of human dynamo is properly geared. It may be and it us ually is that the dynamo is in the mud, and to remedy the imposition, put on the low gear and pull yourself gently out of the mire. If one or more have failed to succeed, it does not sig nify that a town has gone to the bow-wows; perhaps those who failed had inflated ideas.and would fail if they had the world by the tail on a down-hill pull. A knocker is a man who starts something on k one by two basis, and cannot get enough through greed; he explodes on the impulse of a moment, discharging his poison onto those who, either by foresight or good business acumen have been s-ucceseful. A town there is, not far from Cimarron, that would move the Cimarron Canyon and the Palisades to its door were it possible. So does it envy our greatest gift by the Supreme Ruler of the universe. If its one thing more than another that will place the Key City in the front rank of ' important New Mexico cit ies, it will le when concerted action is taken to let the .world know, beyond the city limits, what we have and to what beneficial uses it can be delivered. General Francisca Villa has a fixed determination to keep other countries from recognizing the constitutionalist government. The constitutionalist government is made up of Spaniards and the recent order to all Spaniards ask ing them to leave Torreón, shows how bitter the 'hatred is of the peons against them. Much of the hatred towards a Spaniard is due to the actions of the conquistadores who were not merciful toward the Indian. The peon has been ruled and driven by the Spaniard much more than in the days of slavery in the South. The rebels are justified in taking the stand they have so far shown. Kven among the Democrats there are some pretty hard "nuts to crack." Some few of them rebelled at the mom ent when "Woody" Wilson exploded his idea ahout repeal ing the canal tolls act, but a recent straw vote shows that more than two-thirds of the senators favor such a measure as outlined by the president. There are Mutts among the Democrats as well as all other parties. The people of New Mexico are casually getting their eyes open about the political situation in the state and at the next election it will not be the party as much as the man who will be weighed in the balance. It is not politics what the public wants at this time; it's gtfod legislation. If Andrew Carnegie and the Dove of Peace are now in Scotland, they should make all haste across the North Channel. There is work for them in Ulster, and much of it that requires particular attention. Health conditions among the Indians are described as deplorable by Ind ian Commissioner Sells in his annual re port. Approximately 25,(KH) Indians are suffering from tuberc ulosis, he says, which may all be true. While but few men have come out as cadidates, the political forces are "mum," and it seems at this time as the election will not be minus the usual noise in due time. The contradictions of insanity experts have been again Haunted to public ridicule in the Schmidt case and the wonder is that the alienists don't stop such practices. The facts presented by the latest report of the de partment of agriculture do not show that the "horseless age" is decreasing the numler of horses. vv f all the "guff!'
