"For military and judicial t it led citizens, eastern New Mexico and the IVeos Valley country will compare favorably with the aggregation of Santa Fe colonel 1 by Thomas I', (Sable." said CampheJI Hardy, wno rccenuy reiurneu yesMM-,lHJ day from a trip through the . . i . . i - . . i eastern tier oi counties. At far-famed Koswcll I met a covey of candidates; including Captain W. C.

At Carlsbad I met Captain Ilujac a Philippine war "vet," whose graceful tribute to woman, deli vered in a sheep stealing case, recently tried before the district court, won him high praise as an orator of the "sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish" class. I also met Colonel Houser, "Handsome Harry, M he of the Chesterfield manners, and that prince of philanthropists, Colo nel John K, Joyce, whose libera lity in circulating his wealth would give Hetty Green a night mare were she to witness the colonel deal it out as if it were ho much chicken feed. It is such men as Joyce who are building up a greater Carlsbad. I also met Captain Tracy a sure , enough live wire, and secretary ; of the Commercial Club. Tracy not only talks Carlsbad but backs it up with the coin of the realm. Colonel Mullane, of the Current, and Major Reed, of the Argus, are yours to command. It is the boosting spirit displayed by Col onel Tracy and Colonel Mullane and Major Reed that is keeping the grass from getting a good foothold on the main street. Boosters looking for a location should hie away to Carlsbad, in the land of promise." Today's Advocate presents the announcement of R. A. Eaton, of this city, as a candidate for the office of Sheriff of Eddy county, subject to the action of the democratic primary to be held June 27th. This will doubt less be a matter of great satis faction to Dick Eaton's friends over the country, lie has been a resident of Eddy county for many years, and during that time has drawn about him a circle of friends who are more than willing to accord to him their endorsement and support. No one has aught to say againit him as a citizen and a neighbor and he makes his first start in 'politic with the solid of a host of voters. bucking He ex pects to see as many of the voters as possible between this and the primary, and in the . meantime, wants the most car :ful consideration of all.

The few who may yet be added to the fatalities are possibly a score of the two hundred most seriously injured in hospitals throughout these states.

A number of the farmers of the Cottonwood country met at a point on the railroad midway between Artesia and Lake Arthur Monday afternoon to try to arrive at some decision as to the best place for the location of a switch for the loading of alfalfa. There were about thirty-five men present, although only a portion took part in the delibera tions. The Cottonwood Farmers Association decided some lime ago to ask for the location of a switch at a point about two hundred yards south of the half way point between the two towns and the meeting Monday was called by those residents of the Cottonwood section and others who wanted the switch further north, The vote taken resulted in an unanimous de cesion to have the switch placed upon the land of Win. E. Clark, and the railroad has been asktti to so deceide. It is said that a townsite will ; be laid off near the switch inj the near future and a neighbor- j hood store opened up. The idea will not be a bad one for those farmers who own land in that vicinity -in fact, it can but be' a great convenience. This ru- ( mor may be a mistake, but we I are not trusting to imagination when we say that the time will come when there will be a town every five or ix miles for the length of this great valley.
