In The Ward Building New Railroads v There have been few develop ments this week in the railroads projected and building into this section of the country. The Santa Fe engineering.,, party this week found aud surveyed their crossing of the Cimarron river. They will cross the river in the southwest part of Haskell county, and the road will go into sectiou 1 in the northeast corner section of Stev ens county. The Stevens county boosters are very iinthusiastic over the progress of the road up to date. There is probably no man in this section of the state who is bette- posted on the Santa Fe than John Kelley of Hugoton, who was in Liberal the first of the week. He says that the new road will be built within a mile or two of the present site of Hugoton. If this is the case the county seat of Stevens county will not be moved from its present location. The Hugoton boys have offered to se cure the right-of-way, and it is said that all of the right-of-way in Haskell county has been donat ed with the exception of that re quired on eight quarters of land It is expected that these will be donated or condemned by the firrt of the year. The Wichita Falls & Northwest ern have been gradually working contractors this way as the work was finished, and it is now said that there are more than three hundred men and teams in and around Gate, which is near the east line of ; Beaver county. The contract work is being pushed as rapidly as possible, and it is ex pected that there will be trains into Beaver county by the 6rst of July 1912. Mr. Kell has not yet made a proposition to the people of Liberal, and probably will not do so, until the construction now contracted is completed. - Special Christmas Prizes A beautiful locket and chain, Which is now on display in the windows of C. S. Jarrett's jewelry store will be given on December 27, to the candidate in our big contest, who has made the greatest gain in votes between December) 18, and December '27. All winners of previous prizes are barred from competition for this prize. To the contestant who brings in the greatest number of votes from Taylor's Dr;ig Store, we will give and handsome leather covered writing set.

These greatest gains in the votes in the classes above mentioned must be made between December 13 and December 27. The last two prizes will be given to the winners in these classes regardless of whether or not they have won prizes in this contest before. This makes it possible for every candi date to win a special prize, besides making a nice gain, in the contest for the big piano prize, which will be awarded at the final count. Re member the color of the votes will change the first of the year, and all of the votes issued prior to January 1, 1912. must be placed in the ballot box before the first count in February.
