SUNDAY. OCTOliKR 31, 180. Watrous. Watrous is ii growing lla, not with a rush, hut sMudy and constant ly. She has good hacking a rich farming country surroundim: it, and an txten-ive stock raising country stretching a;.y to the east. The time- will Minn nunc when tho La Junta valley will ho cut up into small farms and he peopled with an indus trious and productive population. Then will Watmus the depot for tin mportanl valley, grow steadily with the country and become a goodly town. It ahendyha- a good school house, and an excellent school under the charge of Mr. Boyle, an experi enced and proficient teacher. A mini beroi fami'ies have already moved in ior the school privileges and others are contemplating doing so. B. M. St. Vraiu who has the large general store at this town, and likewise in Mora, is building a dwelling house in which he intends to live. Mr. S. S. Longuevan, iu charge of St, V" rain's store is likewise putting up a sub stantial adobe for business purposes. Mr Thomas Lester has moved to the town in order to send his children to school. Dr. Sparks is just finishing up a good two-story adobe for office and dwelling. His family is living now in a small though comfortable house in the rear of the new one. Sam Wells appears to be doing a good bus iness in his billiard hall He antici pa a lively trade for the winter, on account ,. jiK. number of men em ployed on iaii..,.ui work in tho Mora Canon-. Messrs. S. iv Watrous & Son are doing ii mercantile ,,,iiess. besides their oceupau.. r.innors. The crops this year were a failure iu so tar as wheat and corn is concerned but they have made it up in hay, hav ing in stacks over two hundred tons of excellent hay, Carl iVildenstein made a lucky bargain in purchasing a piece of land there, almost, in town, aud long before the railroad was thought about, at a rale which would now be considered cheap. lie is im proving it for u nice and comfortable home, lie is doii.g a great deal of freighting for the government from Watrous to Fort Union, lie has re cently brought down from the Fort 500,000 pounds of ordnance to be shipped to the Slates and sold. The government is collecting considerable quantities of grain and hay at the Fort, anticipating that, alargo pro portion of the cavalry now in the South will make their winter quar ters there. Watrous needs a larger depot badly. The present one is en tirely insufficient for tin- increasing trade. It is always packed full of goods and often large quantities lay out. upon the plat form. The railroad company are putting in iron bridges in the Mora Cañón, and we under stand that they propose to raise the whole roadbed throughout the Canon at least live feet. This will employ a large number of men during the win ter. . A Hen on a Tramp. Kcnil'eck & Strang's grading force was encamped at the depot yesterday afternoon and night. A si range story was related by one of the men. who is going to the front with them, how an old hen had made her abode in one of the stock cars and has steadily re mained with it wherever if was taken. The hen chose this ear as her abiding place some mouths ago when the car was in New Mexico. As the car was moved eastward she went with it. When the car stops (or any length of time she will 11 y down from her perch and stroll about oh the ground, but always watches the caras closely as some 'raveler eager to readi his destina! ion. When the car starts this feathered tourist will 11 y back to her old position. She was taken as far east as'lowa and has now got as far as Las Vegas on her return trip. She can hardly be called a tramp as the car is her home. She is not prop erly a dead beat, as she more that-' pa j 8 her expenses by laying egfcs. Yesterday she was walking about the camp as much at home, as if shú had been iu the poultry yard. This is a singular instance of what strange at tachments some of the feathered cre ation will sometimes form. Margarito Romero returned this week from the State, having bought an immense stock of goods in the east whicl: will soon commence to arrive, lie bought for cash and no humbug and consequently got the best possi ble rates on all classes of goods. Mr. Koss Kendall, of Washington, Iowa, arrived on yesterday's train. Mr. Kendall will go on south on to day's train to oversee a number of n.eu on the A. T . & S. F. railroad. Mr. Kendall is an old acquaintance ttnd we are heartily glad to meet him. CHURCH SERVICES METHODIST CHURCH. Sermon to-l:iy nt 11a. in.

Union: Mr. Hloomfield came up from Santa Fe, on the 2-1 tli, in company with the Paymaster. Thev staved over night and left next morning. Last night the engineer at the Fort while passing the quarters occupied by Col Saunders, was attacked and bitten ly a large dog, which he shot. The affair created quite an excite- incut. The arrivals of the mail brings quite a crowd to the post-office. R. II. Iloagland, from Vegas, paid Union a short visit. The Gayette is a welcome visitor especially during election times. The Quartermaster Department has bec-i -liiisv arraneiiur the shafting meeting the pu.ls yith the engine, whereby two pumps may v ,irivoa instead of one, as formerly, with a cotnbiucd capacity of 120 gallons per minute. Said pumps raise water about seventy feet from a well. We have a engine capable of throwing over six hundred gallons per minute, and which will throw water twelve minutes from the time the lire is lighted under the boiler, which makes us pretty safe iu case of lire.
