SUNDAY. OCTOliKR 31, 180.
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

whereby two pumps may v ,irivoa

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.
Dempsey Tries to Die.
b riday night a man bv toe name of
8. M. Dempsey shot himself at Close's
dance hall, because he had been un
lucky at high ball. He had lost all
the money he had and the fact seemed
to depress him. He took advantage
of the temporary absence of the deal
er, to obtain the pistol usually left
near at hand by this class of men. lie
secreted himself behind one of the
screens and -shot himself iu the left
breast. The ball struck a rib and fol
lowed it, thereby saving the would-
be self-slayer's life. Dempsy hails
from Chicago, is about 30 years of
age, and is a bii.k-makcr by trade.
Dr. Mil ligan dressed the wound, and
the man is getting along all right.
This will be a .lear lesson to the
young man, but k may cause him to
lead a different life in tho future.
