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
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
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
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.
Fifth day, Las Vegas to Spring
er. Sixth day Springer to
Raton. Seventh day Raton to
Las Vegas with night meeting
at Las Vegas. Eighth day Las
Vegas to Albuquerque. Ninth
day Albuquerque to Vaughn.
Tenth day Vaughn to Taiban.
Eleventh day Taiban to Clovis
via Texico. Twelfth day Clovis
to Roswell with night meetings
at Roswell.' Thirteenth day Ros
well to Carlsbad. 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

WRITES ON BUGS

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

went the trip because of dead

buried them side by side within -the
