Stops will Ik: made at Santa Rosa, Mamogordo, Lamzozo, rucum- can, and other nourishing towns in that part of the territory.

Wednesday afternoon at four o'clock three men held up and robbed the Dawson pay train at French. The safe was blown and the $35,000 in currency going to Dawson to pay off coal miners was gotten away with. The work was done by three men, who after they had pocketed the money rode away eastward, toward the Sandia mountains. Fosse is after them and it is thought they may be found somewhere in the mountains near Clayton, Union county. Two of the robbers rode gray horses and were rather short heavy men, the other hr.d r. roan horse and two of his front teeth are gone. The place of the hold-up is miles away from civilization, with low hills and deep ravines leading away to the south and east, and it is not a surprise to those ac quainted with the country and knowing that the pay car comes down the Santa Fe from Albuquer que and changes to the Dawson branch at this station, that it has beet, held up. In fact it has rather been expected as the com pany rarely ever has more than one detective to guard the pay car into Dawson. This same plan has been followed during the last five years and many times, we are told, the safe containing the money (or payment of Dawson miners has oecn transported from the Santa Fe train to the Dawson in the iires'.-nce o( as many people as vere traveling on these trains. If this lie true it might have occurred ,t any time nnd may be charged to he gross carelessness of the rail vay companies.

TUCUMCARI WINS IN A Large Crowd Witnessed First Game Between Tucumcari and Nara Visa. Visitors Did Not Have a Look-In. Heavy Hitting Done Was the Leading Feature. Moving pictures pale into tnsig-' uicance as compared with the game on the 1 nth hist between Nara Visa and Tucumcari and the hoim- tal ent came out at the "large end" of the horn in the moving. Most of the game was played during a New Mexico "rain-storm" ind was opened in a quiet and or derly manner by the visitors who neing true lovers of the sport howed no fear of the dire outcome of the game, and ended their half without a talley, but when the home team got their portion they firmly grasped the "willow" and opened up like an 8-inch gun and actually made the ball squeal from the large and repeated whacks it received. The manner in which the home team started the performance very much resembled the first act of the "Wizard of Oz", and amid the cvlconic panorama which ensued Tucumcari established a lead that the 1s1tors did not overcome, eight men having crossed the rubber. NcNeill, the twirler for the visit ors, "blew-up " in this inning and lv the turn he got back to earth iboth gardens was smoking and the I infield was fairly sizzling (rum the ! hot ones that were laid there. The visitors warmed up in the third and did some excellent stick work and succeeded in pushing five across thi plate, however this spurt svas of short duration and only one additional score was made by them during the remainder of the game. The home team got back at them 111 the fourth and seventh and pulled-off another "swat (est" and did a stunt that made the diamond look like a Coney Island merry-go-round on a busy day and after this the audience lapsed into silence, and the remaining portion of the game devoted in making party calls by those in the grand stand nnd in the unlimited indulgence ol pop corn, peanuts, soda pop, etc. Owing to the high winds the pitchers worked at a decided dis advantage and both were hit rather Ireely and a number of errors which occurred were caused by the sand storm, however the visitors got the worst of it both in hits and errors, but they took their medicine as gentleman playrs should.
