L Gurley Broom Corn Company in their new warehouse at Portales Fri day night. A special train of three coachas carrying 110 passengers left here Friday nigh a 7:35 and returned at 2:30 a. m. Besides this, twenty to thirty cars made the trip. With this crowd augmented by those from Portales, Elida and other places it is estimated that three hundred persons were on the fl wr. It was a tired crowd that returned in the. wee sma' noun of the morn, but all rep rt an excellent time. Music was fur nished by the Amarillo orches tra. Mersfelder Resigns County Superintendent o f Schools, L. C. Mersfelder, has tendered his resignation to take effect as soon us possible. The reason assigned by Mr. Mers felder for his action is on ac count of his health, which close confinement and devotion to his duties has somewhat impaired. Under the new law, his work has been almost doubled and this necessitates the employment of more help. It is also neces sary for him to have a car to visit the school districts through out the county in the discharge of his duties and the expense incurred in these matters are so heavy that his salary is not sufficient to compensate him for the effort, lis has not yet de cided what he will do in the future. Murphy Wins Decision In one of the most important land cases tried here in recent years; that of Wm. Murphy vs Walter Andrews, the Fort Sum ner land office last week handed down a decision in favor of the plaintilf Murphy. The tract of hnd involved is located a couple of miles north of Texico. Trie testimony fees i n the case amounted to over $50.00. The plaintilf was represented by Arthur E. Curren and the de fendant by J. Simpson Morgan.

Proof of the fact? None is needed. He admits it himself. As for the name, it is that of Al Butler, special agent for the Sells-Floto Circus and Buffalo Bill's Original Wild West, which is scheduled here for one day's engagement Tuesday, October 5th. In addition to being the most modest man in the world, he al so is the most quiet. At no time during his visit here has he been known to speak more than five thousand words a minute about the coming of the circus and the superlative value of its attrac tions. "Say," h e announced this morning, "we've got: the great est show this year that ever was put together. Why, we've simply got a monopoly on all the stardom of attractions, from Buffalo Bill on down. We've got a girl that can turn so many airsets and somersaults on horse back that it makes you dizzy to watch her. We've got the best clowns, the best acting animals, the best menagerie, the best parade, the best of everything else that ever was invented. A good show? Honest and there isn't a person in the world that won't say I haven't been modest from birth we've got a show that is so wonderful that I simp ly can't tell all the things that we'll show you when it comes to town. You'd think I wa3 as coocoo as a humming bird if I even started on the list. "And so, don't take my word for it. Just drop downtown obout 10:30 o'clock circus morn ing and see the parade, with Buffalo Bill leading it. Then you'll know I've been telling the truth. But there-I shall say no more. It wouldn't be modest." And as unobtrusive as ever he si lied out of the office. A New Store J. M, Stephens, of eastern Oklahoma, has rented the build ing known a3 the Clovis Feed Store, which was recently va cated by J. A. McFarlin, and occupy it with a bran new stock of groceries and feed of all kinds. It will be known as the Clovis Grocery and Feed Store. Mr. Stephens has had many years experienc? in the business. - .Tm - .i - .CWlT WT- goods to write an Our new line of Dress Goods is simply immerse. fads in weaves and colors.

OF QUALITY" COUNTY FAIR AND INDUSTRIAL EDITION Elks' Auditorium Work was started Thursday on the Elks' auditorium on the corner of Pile Steeet and Monroe Avenue. Contractor Lee Layton was awarded the contract to con struct the big building and the Kemp Lumber Company will supply the building material. It has been decided to floor the en tire building with the very best grade of flooring instead of just the dancing section as originally planned. The building will be completed in time for the county fair. Six Hundred Thoroughbreds No, the Mayor is not practic ing for a marathon or with any particular intention of competing in the track meet on fair day, but was merely trying to pen the six hundred head of thor oughbred duroc jersey hogs, which he shipped in from Mal aga Thursday. I t happened that when the hogs were unload ed, as the mayor had planned to graze on the open fields east of the city limits, that the hogs took a dilferent notion and stampeded i n all directions. There was no time to call Sadler who has the reputation of run ning everything down, and it was simply a case of the mayor in hot pursuit. If nny of the residents of Curry county find any hog3 of the aforesaid de scription, they will confer a favor on Mayor Ramey by re turning his property. McFarlin Moves J. A. McFarlin mo red his grocery store Monday into his handsome new brick building on the corner of Mi'chell Street and Grand Avenue across the street from the Croft building. He has installed new fixtures and has attractively displayed his goods. The new McFarlin Grocery is one of the most enviting stores in tha city. Ry Suman has sold his resi dence on the west -side to Miss Dell Courtney.

We have engaged E. L. Cole man, who comes highly recom mended as a special write up booster for this work. It was Mr. Coleman, who was given credit by the Wichita Eagle for getting up their great 120 page booster edition two years ago. To our knowledge, it was the largest and most complete news paper ever issued in the south west, with the possible exception of the Pacific Coast papers. The edition will be fully illus trated with Curry County farm and live stock scenes About five thousand copies will b e printed and distributed accord ing to our p ans, the fair week. We want every industry in Clo vis represented in this big num ber and if you have not seen Mr. Coleman about space, you should do so at once. It will be printed on high grade book paper. The Revival Meeting Interest in the revival which is being conducted by Rev. A. P. Lowreyand his singer, Terry W. Wilson, is taking on greater porportions at every service. At some of the day services five and six persons are being con verted. One of the striking things about the meeting is the men who are being moved are not just children, but strong men tremble under the powerful sermons which are being preach ed at each service. As an evi dence of the interest in the work you can hear the meeting talked all over town. At some of the services we are told that the largest crowds ever gathered in Clovis have assembled. It is a good thing to sea the christian people working together in such harmony. One may not indorse all the evangelist says but all must rejoice in the good work being done. Our people should not fail toattetid these meetings and assist in making our city a better city.
