One suit is an action in man damus to compel the county treasurer of - San Miguel county to pay Lorenzo Delgado, county clerk, one week's salary. The other is to compel the same offi cial to pav District Attorney C. W. G. Ward a small fee. It is planned that when decision is rendered and regardless of how the matter isV decided by Judge xjeahy, to appeal directly to the supreme court for final action. Attorney General Clancy rocent lyrendered an opinion that coun ty officials are entitled to their fees pending an enactment of a salary law.

The ladies of Fort Sumne gave a very pretty leap year dance on St. Valentine's night, at which they entertained the bachelors and benedicts, ladies "choice" being the order of the evening. The ball room was very tastily decorated with flowers, crape bunting and paper hearts, the latter being the order of the eve ning. The ladies wore white gowns and dainty caps of the same color, both of which were plentifully sprinkled with very tf mpting hearts. A prize was offered for the greatest number of proposals re ceived by any one man, but it would seem that the ladies fail ed to take advantage of their opportunities as none of the bachelors came forward to claim the prize. Ketreshments were served at midnight, consisting of coffee and heart shaped sandwiches, cakes and ice cream. Though the inconvenient consistency of the coffee was such as to resist the efforts of these designing ladies in furtherance of their propensity for hearts, they avoid ed defeat by ingeniously devis ing heart shaped sugar lumps. All of the men, whose pleasure it was to attend the dance.agreed that it was a most enioyable evening and that the ladies de served a vote of thanks. Valentine Party.

M.Kennedy Mrs. Walter Mansfield and Mrs. Sh innon of Carlsbad. The guests were ushered into a beautifully decorated dining room where a delicious luncheon was served.
