Jose Ortiz was hanged at Antonito Monday, for the murder of a miner [ named De Luc. Reports have it that cattle are dic ing with Texas fever in the Cherokee • Strip in large numbers. A water spout drown over six thousand men, women and cnildren , in China the 29th of June. - ■ , Rocky Ford is going to have an other watermelon day this year, we • suggest they have it earlier than last year, say before people get tired of the fruit. Policeman John C. Phillips of Denver was dangerously wounded Monday night while trying to make !an arrest in that city, Denver is a dangerous town after sundown. ” There was five hundred new arriv als at Manitou last week. That place and Colorado Springs are crowded with visitors, and all the mountain resorts are having a biger run than any season before. G. M. Magill has sold the Las An i imas Democrat, and will no more write of the glory of the plains. His idea of greatness now is confined to Walsenburg and Monte Vista. We hope Me. won’t altogether forget us. The Salvation Army continues to be the chief thorn in the side of the average citizen of Trinidad, anjl from what the papers say, we judge that while a few join in the worship the rest of the town stand around and curse. The Plymouth Rock is of the opin ion that the best crops in eastern Colorado this year, is right around that town. That is about the opin ion every locality has of their pros pects. Its a pretty fair year for the farmers. About every ten days during the hot weather an editorial association strikes Colorado, they come from most everywhere and looking for cool places and benefits, they gener ally have a good time and go home to write the country up. If one half that is charged is true of the wrongs committed by the last legislature an investigation should be made. If not true, the members of the legislature should begin to talk back. The charges of corrup tion are very strong,and to treat them with silent contempt won’t do. Wilson Bros, are the proprietors of the new paper the Rocky Ford Watermelon. They announce they want patronage but will not eat al falfa to get it. We believe they will make a success out of the Water melon, they start out just like they would, still it is not policy«to swear they never, never, never will eat al falfa, for perhaps they' will. The State Editorial Association met at Denver this week, a gentle man who was in attendance, said to us such a meeting is a farce, outside of complimenting the mayor of Den ver with a resolution they did but lit tle business. The trouble with editor ial associations i that about half the members are not in'any way connect ednvith the newspaper business, and i never haye been, • i < ■■ - - - • • • ,jjj P, K.
