Notwithstanding the sun's rays were
uninterrupted by clouds last Friday, and
the day a very warm one, the lovers of
base ball gathered to play or view the
game between the Buffalo Park Blues
and the Collyer boys. The exact score
was unattainable, but all acknowledged
that the visiting club did well and were
victorious. As our town players are un
organized, and, so far, have had a differ
ent nine at each game, as well as scarcely
any practice, any good playing could not
be expected of them. A ground was
chosen north of town, and the Blues in

neighboring town had insisted on being
taken to their town, which is not a regu

quested by the conductor to either leave
the train here or pay to the next regular
stopping point, refused to do either.
They "were finally compelled to see the

are ready to supply the demand. If we
do not have on hand just the blanks that
are wanted, we will print them quickly
T. K. Phillips seems to be doing a rat
tling land agency business at Collyer. He
reports town property there commanding
good prices. His recent order of letter
heads and envelopes proves that he con
ducts a large correspondence.
We have an order to print 1,000 hand
bills for Mr. P. L. Cobb, late of this
place. He is about to become one of the
business men of Edmond, Norton county,
having purchased the furniture store at
that place. The people of that flourish
ing town will find in Mr. Cobb a straight
business man and a good neighbor.
It is reported of our worthy friend
and neighbor, Wm. H. Dann, that he had
a rather rough time of it while he was out
walking over the fertile plains the other
day. First, some cacti thorns stuck into
a foot through a leather gaiter. Then he
sat down to gather the thorns from his
feet, but he did not stay sat. In other
words, he sat on a bunch of cacti
thorns. In relating the event to a party
of friends before he had had time to
forget the stinging fact, the subject of
this sketch said that the act of sitting
lown oir'that occasion" was oUeof the
stern. realities of this life!
The head mogul of this establish
ment owes General utility uicicey a
debt of gratitude which he will seek to
repay soon after engaging in the potato-
growing business. The general, Tuesday
morning, presented to us a mess of good-
size new potatoes, from the garden of
Captain Hanna. New potatoes of local
growth seem nice, indeed.
Every family should have a bottle of
Chamberlain s Uohc, Uholera and l)iar

Its prompt use has saved untold suffer

be depended upon, besides it is .pleasant
to take. It is put up in 25 cent, 50 cent
and one dollar bottles.
In writing of that country, Mr. O. S.
McClain, a prominent real estate dealer,
301 -Fifteenth street, Denver, Colorado,
says: " I removed here from Iowa in 1874.
As ahealthy country, Colorado has proved
to be equal to my most sanguine expec
tations. The air is clear, pure and light.
The water here in Denver is obtained
from artesian wells, 600 feet deep, which
are numerous in the city, and free from
alkali, mineral taint and vegetable matter;
but in many places the water is impreg
nated with alkali, and persons not ac
customed to it are almost certain to be
taken with cramping pains in the stomach,
diarroea or bowel complaint'of some form;
and right here I wish to give my friends
and the public a bit of advice, which is
based on eleven years' experience. Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarcea
Bemedy.-is a certain cure for alkali
poisoning, cramping pains and diarhoea.
It's a remedy I would not do without for
any consideration, and I have heard
many such expressions from persons who
have tried it."
