Even in Japan the desire for high

citv. and if the nirlit push and ener
gy are used will be a city as large as
Denver before many years arc passed.
Many enemies of this place have
predicted the town never could raise
the amount required of her as a sub
scription to tho Denver & El Paso
railroad, but when it came down to
business it was found that the sub
scription!! were forthcoming. And
it always has been the case that wnen
tho time came for anything Las Ve
gas did as she was expected to do,
and sometimes even better.

A representative of tho Silver City

ho was going to give tho Republican
convention a scorching send ou be

anyway? New Mexican.
Tho New Mexican seems very anx

and, while not open to tho general
public, if any one of tho staff of that
paper needs treatment, ship him to
Geo. W. Ward, who now is in charge
out there, and he will receive tho
best of care, and if ho does not re

The secretary of the treasury has
been notified that tho paper mill at
PitUfield, Mass., at which tho dis
tinctive paper used by the govern

"Look here, Mr. Optic, you had
better look over tho list of territorial
officials at the Silver City conven
tion who were attempting to belittle
Gov. Prince, before you make such
a sweeping assertion." Raton
There is an air of mystery and un
certainty about tho foregoing that
makes it difficult to understand. The
principlo stated in tho Optic is cer
tainly a correct one. Ingratitude is
among tho worst qualities of weak
human nature. To accept benfits
and return, therefor, injuries, to ro-
ceivo good treatment and repay in
bad treatment, is evidence of a base
heart. The principlo is all right,
but who is tho. miserable whelp, in
this particular instance, guilty of
such outrageous acts. Point him out
and write over his name in largo let
tors, ingrato. Don't hit him a lick
in tho dark. Do not cause suspicion
to rest on somo innocent person. To
set tho tongue of gossipers to wag
ging against innocent people, is al
most as bad as ingratitude. Let tho
public have the name of the offender
and if guilty tho press of New Mex
ico will exhibit him to tho world in

Official figures for tho December

Observing housekeepers quickly learn that Dr. Price's
Cream Baking Powder is far superior to other brands in
the fact that they never fail to make the finest pastry, and
if they wish to be economical they can dispense entirely with
eggs and can use a less quantity of butter for shortening
purposes. The advantage is not alone in the saving effected
but In avoiding the trouble and frequently the great difficulty
of securing eggs that are fresh. This is often a serious

Cakes to the stately Bride Cake can be made with Price's

tender and delicious.
Dr. Price's is the only Baking Powder that contains the
white of eggs. None so pure ! None so wholesome !
Dr. Price's' Cream Baking Powder is re
ported by all authorities as free from Ammonia,
Alum, or any other adulterant. In fact, the
purity of this ideal powder has never been questioned.
A few evenings since our report

to run twelve hours a day, operating
between 300 and 400 employes. Con

business referred to it is very appa
