VOL. 4. -NO. 23 FORT SUMNER, GUADALUPE COUNTY, N. M, DECEMBER 16, 1911. $1.50 per Yesar AGRICULTURAL DEMONSTRATION TRAIN TO BE RUN M SANTA FE RAILROAD Six car carrying livestock, agricultural exhibits and ten experi enced lecturers to visit every town along Santa Fe lines in New Mexico during month of January. One of the most interesting announcements made recently to the people of New Mexica is that of J. D, Tinsley, Agricultural Demonstrator of the Santa Fe railroad, that the big railroad system has determined to operate a thoroughly equipped Agricul tural Demonstration train to every point on its lines in New Mexico, during January, next. The train will carry absolutely complete equipment for agricul tural demonstration work and will be the equal of any train of the kind that has been used in the United States. The Santa Fe wiH bear all expense of the en terprise, but will have the active cooperation of the New Mexico Agricultural College which will furnish all exhibits, as well as ten or more lecturers from the college staff. The announcement of this train is significent. It means that the Santa Fe system has come to realize thoroughly the importance of agriculture in the new state and that it is prepared to expend large sums of money in aiding the farmers along its lines and in encouraging farm develop ment. Similar trains have been operated in the older agricultural states with most beneficial re sults to the farmers and upon the general development of the territory served. This train will, in aifect, carry our Agricultural College right to the farmer, and at a season when, with no crops to tend, he can give his entire attention to the lectures and ex hibits offered him. Every farm er in New Mexico who can do so should arrange to meet the train when it reaches his district. The train will consist of six cars. Car No. 1 will be a 40 foot automobile car, fitted out as a traveling stable, and will carry specimens of dairy and beef cat tle. Car No. 2 will be a 40 foot flat car, to be used for exhibiting the live stock. Car No 3 will be a 40 foot automobile car carrying hog, poultry and dairy equip ment. Car No. 4 will be a 70 foot baggage car fitted out as an exhibit room and carrying all material necessary in lecture and demonstration work. Car No. 5 will be a coach fitted out as a lecture room. Car No. 6 will be a Santa Fe business car for the members of the lecture force ac companying the train. The train will be in charge of J. D. Tinsley, Agricultural Demon strator of the Santa Fe, and the lecture staff and will include President W. E. Garrison of the Agricultural College, Director Luther Foster of the Experiment Station at Mesilla Park, and eight or more department heads, who will be in a position to dis cuss and advise with the farmers The Ladies of Fort Sumner will give a big New Year's Dinner for the Purpose of Complet ing a room on the East Side Public School. . This room Will give the Schools ample space to accommodate the large attendance which is now jammed in two rooms. For further announcements watch the paper next week. , Mrs. A. B. Wagner and little ' daughter, Jane, of Marshall, Mich., arrived last Wednesday and will probably remain here for some time. Mrs. Wagner is a cousin of H. C. Barrett of this town. upon every subject of farming which may be brought up. In addition to lectures ample oppor tunity will be given to the farm ers and others to meet the ex- jperts, ask them questions and i get advise upon problems which jmay confront them. The train j will be in every sense a traveling scnooi. The exact date for running the train has not been dec'ded as yet but probably the start will be made on or about January 15th. The train equipment will be com pleted in the Albuquerque shops and will be run solid to Mesilla Park where the agricultural and livestock equipment will be in stalled. Thence the train will run to La Tuna on the Texas border, where the first stop will be made. Stops of an hour or more will be made at every sta tion, and in the larger towns night meetings will be held. The train will be on the road seventeen to eighteen days, and will be in active service fifteen days, since Sundays will not be used. The first day the train will run from La Tuna to Rincón. Second day Rincón to Deming then to San Mancial. Third day San Marcial to Albuquerque, with night meeting at Albuquer que. Fourth day Albuquerque to Las Vegas via Santa Fe.

Fourteenth day Carlsbad to Malaga and Lov ing, thus covering every point on the Santa Fe system in New Mexico. Ample notice will be given of exact time of arrival at each station so that all farmers and others may be able to at tend. A most important feature of the campaign will be the prelim inary organization of Children's Industrial Clubs, along the lines of the Corn Growing Clubs in other states. This is regarded as one of the essential objects of the enterprise, and in order that it may be successful, teachers in all schools are urged to hav3 the pupils under them present at every stopping place. Further details of the opera tion of the train will be given out from time to time and the detailed running schedule will be announced not less than two weeks in advance of the starting of the train so that all may have sufficient notice.

MINSTREL POET WRITES ON BUGS It is No Wonder that Farm ers Daughters Elope With City Dudes, a:.d Their Brothers Join the Army. The farmer sowed a field to wheat, and thought a fortuue he would make, until the green bugs gut so thick, he knew his wheat crop was a fake. He ploughed the land planted corn and tended it with might and main, and said "I think I'll get a crop if only we can have some rain." But when the corn was up knee high and growing taller every day, the hungry chinch bugs did appear and with the corn crop soon made way. "Tis early yet' the farmer said, "to kaffir I will plant the field, and maybe 'ere the early frost it will produce a handsome yield." The-' krffir grew despite the drouth and caused the farmer's smile to spread, and as he viewed the prospect grand, he rubbed his hands in glee and said: '"Tis kaffi r I will plant next year, and liquidate my debts with ease. " But as he spoke, the army worms moved on the field like swarms of bees. The web worms bound the top leaves up to make des truction more complete; so the farmer turned the ground again and said "Once more, I'll try some wheat." Through sun and rain and burning blast the cotton stalks grew tall and rapk, until their owner said "Good wife, we'll yet have money in the bank. This staple we wiU plant next year on every acre we po sess and when we pay the mort gage off, dear wife, you'll get a new silk dress." But while they dreamed of coroir-? wealth ten million borl worms hatched each hour irom igg wanned by tne August sun mat shea iu fierce rays on the flower. "We're ruined sure," the farmer cried. as one by one, the big bolls shed. "There's a bug for every thing we raise, and likewise bugs iú. every bed." The poor niatr" worked from morn till night the -whole long summer through and found at last, when winter came, he wouldn't have a single sou. He died that fall frorJ overwork with a bug house pad ded cell; his poor wife likewise went the trip because of dead bugs in the well. The neighbors buried them side by side within -the church yard's loiyely lot, where earth worms feed upon the mold and an ant'snest only marks the spot. The faithful dog watched o'er the' grave and ,. snaDDed at the nassincr bumble bees until he, too gave up the ghost from fighting ticks jsnd mange and fleas. And e're his carcass could have time to min gle with the common clay the tumble bugs backed up to it and rolled it all away. Ex. ROOSEVELT IS NEXT ' PRESIDENT JS THE SLOGAN Boston, Dec. 14.
