E-68 UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT TO VISIT OUR SCHOOLS Albuquerque, N. M., April 6: Pres ident David Ross Boyd of the Uni versity of New Mexico will be one of the speakers at the Union County Teachers' Asociation meeting at Ami stad, April 14, next. Mr. Boyd ex pects to visit schools at Clayton and other points in Union county in the course of his trip. New University Building Albuquerque, N. M., April 5. A general business meeting of the re gents of the University of New Mex ico has been announced for April 17, at which time the regents will let contracts for the new Hadley hall, the principal main new building provided for the university at the last session of the legislature. The plans for this new building, which take the place of Hadley hall, destroyed by fire several years ago, were drawn under the per sonal supervision of Walter Burley Griffith, the famous Chicago architect, designer of the plans upon which the Australian government remodeled Sid ney. The university regents have en tered into a contract with Griffith whereby he will have personal super vision of all building done at the Uni versity and also the parking of the en larged three hundred acre campus. The new building, it is hoped, can be started by the first of June and it may be that one unit can be completed in time for use next year. Floor Wax Take one-fourth pound yellow bees wax and three-fourths of a pound of paraffin; melt together over the fire; when thoroughly melted, remove from the fire and add, very gradually, one pint of turpentine, beating constantly all the time. When this mixture is cold it should be of the consistency of cold cream. Rub well into the floor with a flannel rag and polish with a clean dry cloth. Bachelors What is leap year doiner to cut down the supply of eligible bachelors ? Ten years ago it was said that the proportion of bachelors to married men was increasing tremendously, and the large number of bachelor apart ments going up in the cities were held out as proof. It may be that the rural districts and the small towns have found the secret of love's suc cess, which is being overlooked in the cities. Maybe the city man is so busy dodging the cars and the confidence men that the love god hasn't a chance to take aim at him. Nevertheless, it is a fact that the small town Í3 once more acknowledged as the hope of the nation. The fact that leap year comes once every now and then is the sole balm to the city. When the year ar rives when man no longer proposes but is proposed to the crop of maidens dwindles somewhat, and it is up to the economists to find a way to even things up to make the woman go more in one year than the man can go in three. It is a nice little prob lem, and we suggest, as a possible so lution, more visits to the country where the air isn't made up of smoke, gasoline fumes, the smell of orange peels and the roasting of coffffee, and where the sun comes dnnm tfcwi. leafy covers instead of fighting to get through the smoke stacks and sky o vi me tiiy streets. Love IS always on the job. All he wants is a chance and a couple of prospects. YOUNG RANCHER REPELS ARREST; OFFICER FIRES Cloudcroft, N. M. The Wills Can yon and Cox Canyon sections of the county were thrown into a state of excitement Friday of last week when John Taylor, a young ranchman living in the Rincón section of the county assaulted a young woman and fled from the scene of the crime, taking refuge in a barn owned by Jesse Lu cas, Jr., some miles from Cloudcroft. With two guns on him he refused to leave the barn. Deputy sheriff S. H. Nimmo was notified. Arriving near the barn Mr. Nimmo was informed that Taylor had two guns. Nimmo entered the barn and commenced talking to Taylor, try ing to induce him to give up. This he refused to do, but drew one of the guns and fired point blank at Nimmo, who returned the fire, firing two shots, one of which entered the face and the other going through the arm and into the breast. He was brought into Cloudcroft and from here taken to Alamogordo, where charges were filed against him. Kansas City Markets When it comes to real diplomacy, Greece takes the cake. She borrows ten million from each side and then decided to stay neutral. El Paso, April 4. Tie American troops are approaching the Durango line south of Chihuahua City. They have surprised the entire country by the rapid adveance they are making. Friday Colonel Dodd and his Seventh cavalry were at Chihuahua near Cusi huiriachic. Villa was then at Satevo, which is 50 miles south. He was then reported to be fleeing for the Durango moun tains, his favorite haunt in time of need. Washington, April 4. The war de partment announced today that a large force of troops crossed the border south of Columbus, Sunday. It is be lieved that it was the Fifth cavalry which has been sent to strengthen the forces in the Guerrero district. Kansas City Stock Yards, April 3, 1916 As predicted at the close of last week, repair work was started today on 25 to 50 cents on cattle effective then. Receipts here were 9000 head, which was a substantial reduction from last Monday, and offerings at the five leading western markets were 14000 less today than a week ago. This was enough to reverse the bear ish situation, and advances were 10 to 15c on all classes. Veal calves were an exception and sold 50 lower. No choice steers were here today, and the top of $9.10 does not represent the full strength of the market. Middle class natives sold at $8.40 to $8.80, and the restricted supply of western fed steers possibly 25 cars, sold at $8.65 to $8.85, weights mostly under 1200 pounds. The supply today had rather a small proportion of beef steers, but con tained a fair number of cows and butcher grades, which sold strong to 15 higher, best cows and bulls worth up to $8, yearling heifers $".50. Stocker and feeder receipts were lib eral and prices were 10 to 15 cents above the close of last week, but not ouite as high as on last Monday. Choice heavy feeders sold at $8.50, and stock steers ranged from $7.25 to $8.25. A feature sale was breeding heifer calves at $9.75. Action of the general cattle market today confirms the opinion that the situation is well grounded, and that the available sup ply for the next 30 or 60 days can be handled on firm prices. Hogs started out 15 to 20 higher this morning, and improved through the session, selling 25 to 30 higher at the best time, re ceipts 7000 head. Top price was $9.70, bulk of sales $9.35 to $9.65, light hogs up to $9.60. The sharp advance today only lacked 10 cents of eliminating the entire break of last week, and suggests that said break was forced. and not a true indication of legitimate market conditions. Rather liberal re ceipts of hogs are expected at the markets during April, although the supply at the five markets dropped off 26000 today as compared with a week ago, and the bullish situation has doubtless caused many gilts to be put in the brook sow class. Lambs and sheep sold slowly today, and prices are 15 to 25 lower, the market about 50 cents under a week ago, receipts 9000 head. Killers have given buyers positive orders to reduce mutton cost, based on depressed outlet. On the other hand, available supply for the next month or six weeks is known to be light, and a return to stronger prices may be expected. Best lambs sold at $11 and $11.05 today, and fat ewes of choice quality would bring around $8.25, Texas clipped wetsers $7.25, clipped fat goats $5.50, clipped Drushers $5.00. J. A.
