These old resi dents are tlio foundation of our commonwealth; to them belongs the honor of blazing the wny from conditions which tried men's souls, to the peaceful privileges which wo now enjoy. To listen totheieold residents relate ac counts of by-gono days Inspires us with the idea that too little attention is paid to their import ance. Now and then ono of the "old guard" is called to his, or her reward, and the pnpors dwell on the merits of the departed ones while flowers arc scattered as loving tributes to the worthy dead. While this is all fitting, appropriate, and as little as wo can do, yet why not say a little and do a little to show the old resident iust what we think of him while he is yot with us? Why not scatter a few flowers in ltfs pathway before he got be yond the reach of mortal help and tribute. Wo are, first, in fav or of ortranizimr an Old Settler's Society which will include in it's membership all old residents of Lincoln County. After this or ganizntion has been effected, en tertainments may bo arranged which will bo of groat interest to our old settlers. Besides, this will afford our old neighbors the blessed get-together privileges gained by such an organization. Wo have talked with n number of our old settlers and they nrc heartily in favor of .the move ment to organize, so let us Btart the ball roiling-Who will help? Now is the time. S. H. Nickles, No. 1. Tlio nlcrht before the hunting season opened, S. II. Nickles took his bedding and motored up far toward the top of Carizo Mountain, and from there, car ried his bclonainas to tho sum mit so ho could find a good placo to put in the night. Early in the morning of the open season he arose and after traveling n short distance, saw a fine buck emerge from his concealment, making a dash for tho next cms ter of trees. Mr. Nickles fired, striking him in tho shoulder, but he kept up his gait until a second shot brought him to the ground. Being some three miles from his car it made the task ot getting his catch to that point exceed ingly difficult, as the deer weigh ed over 200 pounds. He skinned the animal, and divided tho car cass and in that manner carried 1m t' 1 tip fll rr ' ft 5. B PAVI5 JR.

M Oct. 22 "Uo careful with fire in the mountains" is the parting request jt the üoi est service to the min imis of deer hunters who nru starting for the woods during the next few days to be on hand for tho opening of tho season on Oct 20. Tho New Mexico for ests hnvo been extreniojy dry, .iccording U loports received to tlio District Forester, and while the recent storms have tempor arily relieved the situation, a few days of sunshine will again make every neglected campfiro or un extinguished match n source of danger. Hunters arc requested to ob serve the gamo laws, to leave their camps clean, to respect tho property of ranchmen and set tlors, und to avoid careless shoot ing with high-power rifles. Tho I'orest bcrvice points out that real sportsmen do not have to bo reminded to respect thcriahts and property of others, but that unseasoned beginners aro apt to bo careless. Tho co-operation of all citizens is requested in the prevention of damage mid ncci- dents in the woods. Hon. Merritt C. Mechem, Senator A. B. Fall and party arrived on schedule time Thursday accompanied by a large crowd of admirers from neighboring towns anxious to lend their efforts to the big rally and to hear tho distinguished gentlemen who addressed the meeting. The party was composed of Hon. Merritt C. Mechem, candidate for gover nor, Hon, Senator A. B. Fall, Hugh Williams, Oliver Leo as principals accompanied by many who joined the cotingont at points between hero and Rosvcll. George Spence, pre cinct chairman, opened tho meeting by introducing Hon. Merritt C. Mechem who addressed the meeting which was tho biggest political gathering witnessed in Cnrrizozo for years. He reviewed the charges made against him in the prosent campaign by the Albuquerque Journal, the editor of which, Judgo Mechem said, was not even n legal voter in the State of New Mexico-. He told, in a straightforward and honest manner of how that editor had mado at tempts to induce him to come out with a "defl" against some of our most prominent public men, principal among whom was our United States Senator A. B. Fall. Judge Mechem held his audience in closo attention as ho roviowed the principles of tho Republican plat form and repeated his assertions with firmness and telling effect, that he had made no promires to any individual and stood in tho position to be dictated to, only by the peoplo whom ho would represent should ho bo elected as governor. Senator Fall followed with an address on the league of nations. He riddled tho document from beginning to ending and said that the league of nations, if carried out as proposed by tho present arrangement which tho President insisted must not be changed by tho dotting of an I or tho crossing of a T, and said that in case tho samo should ever pass, tho peoplo of New Mexico could look for his resignation as' their United States Senator. Senator Fall was followed by Hugh Williams, who gavo a very interesting talk ending with a recitation entitled, "Life Is a Funny Proposition, After All." The Crystal Theatre wns crowded to overflowing, many having to bo turned away on account of lack of seating capacity.

They started ut earlj and trailed tho imlr of bruins, finally them to the killing. They tele phoned the news to Carrlzozo and n truck was sent up which brought the bears to town. They were fine specimens nnd made good eating. HENRYLÜTZ- His name is a household word throughout Lincoln County.

He is on the Republican ticket and hU.jilatlorm Is Jbig -enough gnrdless of past party affiliations, because he is tho "Homo Man," and the peoplo's interests are his interests. Therefore, he will give us tho service wo need, His opponent resides In a far, remote region near Salt Lake, and would be hard to reach when we would need him the worst. He mani fests no interest in tho affairs of tho joint counties. Lincoln Coun ty's needs aro not considered by him. His attention, if olected, would be confined to his own lo cality and that would mean 'salt' and that only. Vote for the "Homo Man," a Man of exper ience: a Man of ability; a Man of knowledge.

The evening was pleasantly spent in games of different kinds, during which time refreshments were served. Tho Blues and Reds Clubs are made up of different members of tho young folk in the church and engage in friendly contests in work connected with the relig ious cnuse. which is in the wuy of emulation as to who can best work, and best agree; nnd the above account of the on tertnin ment nt the home of Mi s.
