The Pecos Irrigation Company Re-
organized With a Strong Showing
Of Officers And Prepared To
Further Develop the Pecos Valley.
Special Correspondence of the Herald .
Carlsbad N. M. Jan. 20. The
Pecos Irrigation company after its
many violssitudes has gone out of the
handa of Its receiver B. W. Taneill
and has been re-organized with a very
etrong showing of officials. Arthur S.
Goetz will hereafter act as general
manager and W. P. Mcintosh will be
his land agent. The advent of Mr.
Goetz into the affairs of the company is
regarded here as peculiarly fortunate
for its prospects as he has not only
had the charge of the beet fac-
tory on his hands but baa been in
a great degree the promoter of the
beet growing industry of the valley
an industry that has built many homes
here and promises to but Id many more
la the future.
The officwof audirnr and rashier was
offered '0 Get;. H.Hutchins but was
declined 'for the. reason that other
ou-ine-a arrangements prevented his
accepting it. B. T Killough takes
the pi ice of W. M. Reed resigned as
resident engineer. The osher ap-
pointments to the different offices will
probat ly he made by Mr. Goetz within
a few days.
The fact tbat the company is on its
feet again is due entirely to the
prudent management of Mr. Tausill.
who as receiver husbanded
its reeoun ea and by good judgement
placed it in a najlng condition enabl-
ing him to turn over the business cf
the co-pration ia a. far better shape
than he received it and with a fair
hope thht t he valley would be benefited
by his temporary rnftr8rement of the
affairs of this 'n-rjo'iirn -vhich outs
TO HOLD THE DOORS
Fireman J. M. Steed Invented a De-
vice Very Useful To theOepart-
tnent. An Important Improvement ha3 re-
cently been made at. the fire depart-
ment. There are four entrances in
front for the wagons and each are two
heavy wooden doors which in casa of an
alarm are opened by the drivers pull-
ing a string when ready to go out.
Hitherto when the doors swung open
there waa nothing to eaten them and
tnty would frequently swing back and
impede or stride the horses and wag-
ona as they shot by. '
An apparatus has now been fitted
up to prevent this. It is aa Invention
of J. M. Steed driver of the chemical
engine who. perceiving the disad-
vantages existing Immediately set to
work to find a remedy for them and
has now applied for a patent on the
result of his labors.
The apparatus consists of an Iron
device with a spring which ca'ches
the door as It swings back and holds it
firmly. A wooden framework acts aa a
protection to the doors. There are
six of these devices for the eight
doors. The doors at the entrance for
the envioe swing open inwardly and
are differently provided for in this re-
gard. The Invention Is conceded by
all who have examined it to be a most
excellent and useful device.
Mr. Steed ia a natural mechanic and
haa made a number of other inventions.
Among these is an improved car
coupler similar to the Janney now in
general use. The latter came out just
as Mr. Steed was perfecting his inven-
tion and he found himself debarred
from realizing any benefit from hia
idea. Another invention Is an auto-
matic t-ack l9valer ani raiser that en-
ables o-e man to raise a track and
fasten it for purposes of repair whereas
six are now required to raise and hold.
This waa tested by the T. A P. in east
Texas and was commented upon favor-
ably by Gen. Manager L. S. Tborne
who examined it and ita working In

Special Correspondence of the Herald.
Monitor Arl. Jan. 19. A few
days ago Mr. Murray a prune capita-
list from San Jose and Mr. K tchen
from Los Angeles on their way to the
northern part of the territory looking
for mining investments Bpeat three
days here and were pleased with some
quartz mines cer here. An effort was
made to sell the placer mines here
pump and all below cost but as there
la not enough water in the Gila to run
a frog ranch and a duck or gooae
would die of ennui in It they could not
be tempted to buy. Everything ia dry
Mr. Luce passed here today on his
way to the Castle Donn river. He is
lessee and manager. Some days ago
it waa thought the ore wa9 giving out.
Such Is not the case however and Mr.
Luce's mourning if he ever did mourn
is turned to joy while he smiles genial-
ly and frequently.
What are the people doing? Not
much of any thing. Alfalfa 6ugar
corn cattle and ponies grow just like
Topsy. Healthy? Oh yes and happy.
The native population the Iodian and
Mexican- seems to be quite happy.
They don't want much and they don't
get a great deal and the correspon-
dent would trade his placer mine
and throw in the pump to be as happy
and content a3 they seem to be.

Greatest of All
" Every 0110 in San Antonio Texas says
that Acker's English Ileniedy is the greatest
thing ever put up lor oongiis
colds asthma bronchitis
croup and consumption. I
have been using it over four
years for all forms of throat and lung trou-
bles and have yet to come across a case
where it failed. We have four little ones in
our family and neither my wife nor 1 have
ever lost a night's sleep because of throat trou-
bles among the children. I guess that is more
than any other family 'can say. Acker's
English Kerned j- is just ns effective for grown-
up people as for the young. It seems to go
straight to the place where the trouble lies
in the throat and bronchial tubes and lungs.
It soothes and heals the irritated tissues
loosens up the phlegm and mucus in the
breathing passages quiets the nerves invig-
orates the constitution and stops the cough-
ing. My advice to parents is to always keep
a bottle in the house. It will be a constant
safeguard against croup." (Signed)
