AiNAiiR Independen VOL. I BEAN SHIPMENTS EXCEED $60,000 Twenty-Nine Cars Billed Out by Local Agent to Date NINE CARS SHIPPED DURING PAST WEEK Threshers are Working Overtime to Handle the Immense Crop Santa Fe Agent J. A. Copeland has billed out nine carloads of beans since our last report, making a total of twenty-nine cars tó date. Three more cars are now loading at the local station. With beans advancing in price, this means something over sixty thousand dollars as having come into the valley through this point, for beans, thus far this season. Mr. Copeland reports a shortage of cars, which makes it ex tremely dificult to meet the demandi along this line. The threshers are busy from early morning till late at night, and the ship ments will continue at a lively jace. At least a half dozen threshers have been shipped into the valley this fall, and all find plenty to do. '. J. W. Pippin is bringing in some of his beans, having brought one load of about 5,000 pounds this morning. He Ihreshed something over 46,000 pounds trom ba acres. While this is not so high an average as some are reporting, he has the added advantage of having done all the work in growing the crop himself, and has no expense bills to de duct for hired help. - Rufus Sellers, who farmed 85 acres to beans the past season has disposed of his crop for eighteen hundred dol lars, a little over fifty dollars per acre He delivered the beans for shipment last week. P. Fitz Gerald has been marketing his beans, having grown 37,600 pounds or. 35 acres. Clay Robbins threshed 25,100 pounds from 27 aeres. Both of these farms are about seven miles from Mountainair. Messrs. Isenhart and McCullough shared the crop on the Isenhart farm. But before threshing sold the crop of beans frcm twenty acres for $800. Mr. Isenhart was offered $450 for his half interest in twenty acres of corn, but reused t&'sell; v . They also had' good crops of millet and oats. Sunday Services Rev. W. S.

Thursday Afternoon Club The ladies of the Thursday After noon Club always look forward to the meetings every two weeks . La6t Thurs day was spent with Mrs. Cowles in the usual pleasant manner. Current events proved very interesting and instructive with Mrs. Burt as leader. There was no program as Mrs. Han- Ion had just returned from the meeting of the State Federation of Clubs held at Las Vegas and gave a report of the doings of that body. A delegate al ways receives inspiration at such meet ings, and Mrs. Hanlon had many new ideas and plans for our Clnb. It was decided to have a committee gather up magazines, and use the post office lobby for their distribution. The magazines are free and all can help themselves, and when thru with them, hope they will be passed on. Mesdames Fulton and Cowles compose the com mittee and will make a canvass for your magazines. Mrs. Cowles, assisted by her daugh ter, Mrs. Harris, served delightful re freshments after which the Club ad jonrned to meet in two weeks with Mrs. Fulton.

Davis bunch of Jerseys, includ ing five cows and heifers and a bull. This is high grade stock, and the cows and heifers will be fresh during the winter and early spring. Those who are acquainted with the stock declare the doctor has secured a bargain. The Pie Social The Pie Social given by the young ladies of the local High School last Sat urday night was indeed a success, the net result being a neat sum toward se curing supplies for the Basket Ball Teams. Apparently there are some folks around Mountainair who like pie. There were eighteen pies put up for sale to the highest bidders, and twenty six dollars received as a return. ill Keep Posted L. J. Austin, who has been making his home at Chillicothe, Missouri, has been spending some days here looking after his farm northwest of town.

Rapkock and wife and Mrs. E. W. Roberson, of Estancia, were visitors in our town yesterday, having come over on busi-. ness and pleasure MOUNTAINAIR, NEW MEXICO, COUNTY TICKETS Both Republicans and Democrats Name. Can didates for County Offices The county republican convention met at Estancia last Monday and named a complete county ticket On Tuesday the Democrats and the Independent voters named their set of candidates for the various offices. While on ac count of our New Mexico law, this will be known as the Democratic Ticket, it is in reality a Fusion Ticket. At the meeting on Monday a commit tee of ten was named to present the list of- names of candidates to tht con vention, thus relieving the delegates of the opportunity of making any nomina tions. This mode of procedure was ob jected to by several of the delegates, but their objections were unheeded, re sulting in their quitting the convention. The convention on Tuesday was the most harmonious and apparently the most satisfactory to the delegates as a whole, of any we have ever witnessed. Republican Ticket Jesus Candelaria Commissioner, 1st District Policiano Sanchez Commissioner, 2d District Melcor Luna Commissioner, 3d District Raman Tenorio Sheriff Reymundo Romero Treasurer Feliciano Chavez y Assessor Salaz Julian Salaz County Clerk Elijio Guttierrez Probate Judge Chas, L.

Mr. Burns, who suffered a fractured jaw eome weeks ago by mixing with a welldrill, has so far recovered that he is again able to sing. We have been enjoying nice weather since the rains. Farmers are busy gathering thejr crops, Some are talk ing of plowing for another crop, which is indeed a good idea. Messrs. J. W. Garrison and Thomas Adams attended to business in Moun tainair Saturday. Rev. Garrison brought back a nice coop of chickens and Mr, Adams a horse. Rev. W. D. Garrison attended ser vices Surday at the ' Roundtop School house and heard an interesting sermon by Superintendent Bright. Following the Bermon, a Methodist Church was oganized at that place. So the good work Í9 still growing. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2, After the regular routine work had been passed upon, the nominations were taken up. Anyone desiring to put forth a cannidate was given opportunity to do so, and all voting for candidates was open. One or two delegations had been instructed to vote as a unit, which did not prove entirely satisfactory, as it caused a few votes to be counted differently than would otherwise have been the result. But in no case, were there sufficient of these, that the re sult would have been changed. The ticket nominated on Tuesday is in our opinion composed of candidates who are better qualified to fill the of fices they seek, than that of Monday. It is not an ideal ticket we have never seen such an one. We expect to have more to say of the candidates on this ticket the coming week. The tickets are: Democratic Ticket H. V. Lipe Commissioner, 1st District August Kayser Commissioner, 2d District Moisés S. Sanchez Commissioner, 3d District - ... Dee Robinson Sheriff Juan C. Sanchez Treasurer D. C. Howell Assessor Acasio Edw. Gallegos County Clerk Esau B. Lopez Probate Judge Reta B. Mathews Superintendent of Schools H. A. Ballard Surveyor Nicanor Baca Representative 28th District Harry J.

Wal ton and Antonio Lucero were in Moun tainair last Monday, greeting the vo ters, with whom they talked for some time. On account of the rougli roads, following the heavy rains recently, the party did not arrive in time to hold a public meeting at the hour designated, but made good use of their time in be coming acquainted with the voters per sonally. Each of the party left a good impres sion, their talk assuring the people that they were men who understood the business of the. offices to which they aspire. Mr. Jones especially, impressed our people as a man capable and effici ent, in whose hands the interestí of our sflate at the national capital will be safe.

NO. 6 1 1 &KET BALL "PIE" SUPPER A SUCCESS rarley Shows Skill as Auction eer Getting $1.50 each for pies ' TOTAL ENROLLMENT . , HAS REACHED 116 Janitor Resigns and Mr. Cast is Named as his Succes sor The "pie social" held by the young ladies of the High School, surpassed their wildest expectations. By eight thirty the church was crowded and a very enjoyable program was rendered. Mrs. Farley pleased the audience with ' a vocal solo: The readings by Mrs. McNeese were especially pleasing, if we are to judge by the applause of the young folks; Miss Lois Hollon of the Sophomore Class closed the program with a very pleasing piano solo, and when the audience insisted responded with an encore. Rev. Farleyjwaa chosen auctioneer and informed the audience that the young ladies needed at least fourteen dollars, and that he had oily eighteen pies to tell. The parson is "some auctioneer" and could no doubt have raised the desired amount from any ordinary audience but when our young friends "the bean busters," be gan to recognize the pies and associate them with the young ladies who baked them, there was no limit to their bid ding and it kept the auctioneer busy recording bids. When it was all over it was found that each young man had the young lady that none of his friends would bid enough for and all were ex tremely happy, especially the youig ladies, for the total receipts for the eighteen pies was even twenty-six dol lars.
