From The Santa Fe New Mexican:

May 16, 1914: Mountainair — C.H. Hatcher of Tulsa, Okla., has filed a homestead at the station of Sillo, east of Willard, and is also planning the erection of a salt evaporating plant. Salt has been hauled from the lakes in that vicinity since the Spanish invasion, and Mr. Hatcher and his associates think they can put the finished product on the market from this place cheaper than it can be done where the water has to be pumped as it is in Kansas. He expects to have his plant in operation by September.
