Fleming Makes Reply to Mabry. The Ciovis Journal in last weeks issue devoted a half col umn or more to a lot of sarcas tic, semi-funny remarks re garding William F. Fleming, secretary of the Ciovis Chamber of Commercs and attempted to justify their unwarranted per sonal attack on Mr. Fleming for the reason that he objected to being called "Do?," a nom de plume for which there is neither cause or justification. Mr. Fleming's answer to Ma bry's stinging criticism is as follows: Ciovis, N. M. Apr. 15, '13 Mr. T. J. Mabry, Ciovis, N. M. Sir:- Your unnecessarily long letter received. If this letter was intended as reply to the one I wrote you under date of April 10th, it wa3 a use leu waste of time on your part, as my letter did not re quire a reply. .

Reform of Land Laws. r Reform of the land laws has not been mentioned among the measures which President Wil son will ask Congress to take up either at the extra session or at the next regular session. This fact is probably due to failure by the President, like other eastern people, to recog nize the necessity of this reform. Western people are keenly alive tj.the urgency, and it is in Jmbent upon Western Sena tors and Representatives to urge action so forcibly that de lay beyond the next regular session will be impossible.

LLY A SOUND INVESTMENT natorlum Where the Tuberculosis May Be Cured le Worth Much to Any State or City. Dr. H. L. Barnes, superintendent of the Rhode Island State sanatorium, has reoently demonstrated by some in terestlnR studies of patients itlsrliaru ed as "apparently cured" from that in stitution, that a sanatorium Is a sound inrestment for any state or city. The gross earnings of 170 ex-patients ob tained in 1911 amounted to $102,752, and those of 211 cases in 1912 to $112, 021. By applying the same average earning to all ex-patients of the sana torium living in 1911 and 1912, Dr. Barnes concludes that their income in these two years was $551,000. This sum is more than three times the cost of maintenance of the sanatorium In cluding interest at 4 per cent, on the original investment and depreciation charges. Dr. Barnes concludes, how ever, "While institutions for the cure of tuberculosis are good investments, there is good reason for thinking that institutions for the Isolation ...
