Will Try For Agricultural Experi
ment Station.
The Commercial Club li e I d a
a meeting Tuesday evening lor l he
purpose of discussing the feasibil
ity of an agricultural experiment
station in Ouay county. A com
mittee consisting of C. C. David
son, W. F. Buchanan, M . C .
Meclicm and Col. T. W. Neman,
was appointed to lake the matter
up with the proper authorities im
mediately. The object is to g'e t
thts government to help our people
to ascertain the variety of agricult
ural products that are best adapt
ed to this climate and to try to get
the farmers to plant and cultivate
that which promises the greatest
yield and the most money per acre.
The Commercial Club has done a
great deal for the county already,
in helping to locate immigrants
and to aid in anv way possible th
prospective settler coming to Quay
county, but this is the most impor
tant step yet taken, and if the sta
tion can be had it is just the thing
most needed at this time.
Rock Island Will Help.
In answer to a letter from Col
M eman, Sec. of the commercial

"I note that there is still a million
and five hundred thousand acres
of homestead land open for settle
ment in your county and that the
Tucumcari people are particularly
desirous and willing to give all as
sistance and co-operation for the
securing of prospective homestead
ers. I will make it a special point
to see that you are furnished with
names of parties making inquiries
regarding homestead lands in New
Mexico, feeling sure that you will
follow same u p a n d co-operate
closely in securing them locations
in our territory." This shows the
Rock Island ready to help us and
we should take advantage of the
opportunity and get to work to
push the matter along.

agricultural standpoint, and be

The First National Bank of Tucumcari has been. organized a little
more than three years and has done a good business since it opened its
doors in Tucumcari. Its officers are Frank P. Harman of Lynchburg,
Va., President; A. 13. Simpson, one of our prominent merchants, Vice
President; and W. F. Buchanan of this city its cashier. Among the
stockholders are W. II. Fuqua of Amarillo, President of the Amarillo
First National Bank; Frank P. Harman of Lynchburg, Va., who is
President of the Guckenheimer Dry Goods Co. of Lynchburg, Va., a
concern capitalized at $10,000,000.00, and Vice-President of the First
National Bank of Roanoke, Va., and who is also a heavy stockholder
in Virginia railway lines and coal; and W. F. Buchanan, Alex. D.
Goldenberg and J. A. Street, all of this city.
The bank was organized the 9th day of June 1902 as a national bank,
and since the dale ol opening it has paid the stockholders 401 per

the deposits were 1 1 1,51 1.02, cash and sight exchange, 52,933.87; and

citizens are proud of our local bank. Mr. Buchanan is a thorough busi
