THURSDAY, MARCH 13, 1930 ~" -- ~ - , Jl Sheepmen, Attentin! (Continued from Page One) business depression, stock market breaks and lack of employment But the main cause of the decline in wool prices is the direct result of changed methods of buying wool. Wool used to be purchased in large quantities well irtadvance of market require- ments,Z)In"~" anticipation of "ashion and demand for the finished product. The wholesaler then took a good share of the risk. Later this risk was passed back to the spinners and weavers, and in turn back to the top makers. These risks are now in turn passed back to the source of supply~"the sheep man and wool grower." We must now not only carry the expense and risks of a 12-month period of wool growing, but either directly carry the expense of holding the wool until demanded, or indirectly by selling to a speculator, or consign to a wool house, or turn our product over to a cooperation to handle for us. We must carry the in- terest costs of growing as well as holding until final sale is made. We may feel like sheep, appear sheepish, look like a lamb, act like a ram, but in the final analysis we are really the goats. -Reports from nine leading wool producing countries of the world, representing around 90 per cent of the world's production, show an esti- mated decline in the 1929-30 crop of about 10,000,000 pounds. The world carry-over for Australia, New Zea- land, South Africa, Argentina~ and the United States shows an increase of about 18,000,000 pounds as com- pared to a year ago. The total carry. over of these leading countries for the current season is only 13.3 per cent of the estimated production,~as com- SHAVE DAILY and have your HAIR CUT REGULARLY LADIES' and CHILDREN'S HAIR BOBBING W8 ~V@ BLUD RUB TREATMENTS Agency A]amo~ Laundry SAGUACHE BARBER SHOP A. VAN HOFTEN pared to 12.3 per cent a year ago. The aggregate production, plus the carryover, in the same countries would only result in an increase in the total available supply carried by the producing countries of .3 per cent which would have no material effect. Unfavorable conditions in some foreign countries may further reduce the anticipated supply. We must re- alize that changing conditions of buy- ing and manufacturing will require changed policies upon the part of the producer. Just what ~hat will be re- mains to he worked out. We can not meet our obligations timely and re- ceive payment in from one t~ two years for our products. Let us get to- gether and see if we can work out some satisfactory solution of our dif- ficulties.

"There are two kinds of people on earth today, Just two kinds of people, no .more I say; Not the saint and sinner, for 'tis well understood The good are half bad, and the bad are half good; Not the rich or the poor, for to count man's wealth, You'must first know the state of his conscience and health; ,Not the happy or sad, for the swift flying years Bring to each man his laughter, and to each man his tears. No, the two kinds of people on earth I mean Are ~he people who LIFT and the people who LEAI~, And where'er you go, you'll find the world's masses Are always divided into just th~se two classes. And, oddly enough, you'll find too, I ween, Theres only one lifter to twenty who lean. In which class are you? Are you eas- ing the load Of over-taxed lifters who toil down the road, Or are you a leaner, who makes oth- ers bear Your part of the labor and worry and care?

He visits professionally the more important towns and cities and offers to all who call free consultation, ex- cept the expense of treatment when desired. According to his method of treat- ment he does not operate for chronic appendicitis, gall stones, ulcers of, the stomach,, tonsils or adenoids. He has to his credit wonderful re- sults in diseases of the stomach, liv- er, bowels, blood, skin, nerves, heart, kidney, bladder, bed-wetting, catarrh, lungs, rhumatism, sciatica, leg ulcers, rectal and prostate ailments.

Mar 6-13 Criminal Docket at Ala- moss Very Heavy The March term of the district court criminal docket in Alamosa, which is in session this week, Judge L C. Wiley presiding, is the largest on record in that district. The cases involving district court consideration run the gamut from hog and cattle stealing to the operation of moonshine liquor stills and" high- way robbery. Among the many rain ~r offenses filed in the higher court by District Attorney Charles H. Wood- ard is a charge of carrying concealed weapons preferred against Ted Lobb, acquitted of a charge of slaying A. A. Hill a year ago this month when the prosecutor made the point before the ~ury that the fatal bullet had prob- ably been fired by an unidentified per- son. Lobb is now s resident of Texas. None of the civil actions involve any considerable sums. One that promises much spicy testimony ~s a suit filed by Mrs. Elizabeth Corsline of Denver, suing Dr. William S. Hum- phreys of Alamosa, for breach of promise. They met thru a matrimon- ial advertisement, she sets out, and after securing a marriage license here he "stepped out" at the last minute.

Plans are now under way for paying tardy rec- ognition to the srvices of two of these exceptions in the.form of a memorial which is to be erected in New York near the scenes of their exploits. One is a man who is better known as an explorer than as a soldier and a great mountain peak in Colorado is a per- petual memorial to his fame.
