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. To the contestant
who deposits the greatest number
of votes from new or renewal sub
scriptions to The Liberal Demo
crat, we will give a beautiful gold
and pearl trimmed fountain pen.
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.

The receipts of broomcorn here
have been light for the past three
weeks, yet there has been more
brush on the market than the
present, price would seem to justi
fy. There is much talk now of a
raise in price after the holidays,
and it is probable that there will
be no advance before that time.
There were 1C cars of broomcorn
shipped last week, making a total
of 347 cars for the season. The
price has been only fair this week,
the top bt-ing paid on Tuesday,
