Old timers of El Paso county will recall the killing of William Camp bell on the Campbell ranch, sixteen miles south of El Paso. Mr. Camp bell was burned in a grave on the ranch, and his remains have lain there undisturbed ever since. The Santa Fe track has been laid near the grave, aud the widow feaied its ultimate despoliation by side tracks. When the remains were taken up, and untill exposed to the air, they were as per fect as at the time of burial, and. strange to relate.though the deceased was cleau shaven at the time, his beard had grown to his waist, and the hair of his head had grown luxuri antly and covered his shoulders. Mr. Campbell has been in his grave just twenty-five years aud nine months.— Ex. There is no telling where the trou ble resulting from mortgages will end. An exchange telU’of an Ohio man who mortgaged his farm to get his wife a pair of diamond ear-rings. The wife took in washing from the summer borders to pay the in terest on the mortgage, and the first day lost one of the diamonds in the suds, and tried to hang herself in the barn, but the rope broke and she fell on a $l5O Jersey calf and broke its back.—Gray County Jaeksonion. Most of the farmers in this vicinity will put in h large acreage of wheat this fall. The few who tried wheat last fall merely as an experiment are so wonderfully surprised at the enormous yield that most of the ground now under cultivation will bo seeded to wheat and corn next spring will bcplantod on new ly broken sod. That Is right. Wheat lathe crop for this country as it has been fully de monstrated to be the crops for Western Kans., and what will grow in Kansas will grow abundantly in Colorado, only more so.— Cheyenne Wt-lls Gazette. The regular examination of teaoh ers for certificates will be held at Lamar on August 30th and 31st. At that time the County Superintendent will meet all persons who desire to pass an examination in this county. 8-tf. F. E. Irwin, Supt. ot Schools, Prowers Co, A R Black the leading cattleman of Prow ers county, was doing business In I.as Anlrnaa on Wednesday.—Bent county Democrat. RAILWAY NEWS. Travelers, tourists and people con templating a visit “back east” make it their duty to study up the geogra phy of our country, the location of cities and towns, and the most desir able routes by which they can reach the desired destination. Tho open ing of new lines, the daily adoption of mnorations and other matters con nected with railroading all prove in teresting reading, and such items are most eagerly sought after, while these vast corporations vie with each other in advanceing the comfort and safely of their never to be satisfied patrons. We were most forcibly thrown into this line of thought while enjoying a tnp over that road Whose name is as familiar and with whoso ramifica tions tho experienced traveler is as well acquainted as with the streets of his native village. Reference can be made to none other than the Wabash whose Lines cover a beauti ful and fertile country and connect Omaha, Kansas City, Des Mones, Keokuk Quincy and St. Louis with Chicago, Detroit, Toledo, Pittsburg, New Yoak, Boston and all intermedi ate points. But one change of cars needs bo made between Cheyone or Denver and New York or Boston. Quick time, smooth track, sumptuous dining cars whose cuisine is equal to that of the best hotels in the land and in which meales are “served at 40 miles an hour” to be eaten at your leisure moving palaces better known as pullman sleepers, free re clining chair cars of the latest and most approved paterns together with affable and obliging agents in all branches of its service, are in each and every particular characteristics of the “Wabash.” No matter where he roams the patrons of this Great Route finds the same care and atten tion in the hands of its representa tives, and they are übiqutous, that one should expect under the folds of his country's flag in foreign lands. A typewriter girl who has seen much of men and thoir ways during business hours, writes to the Indian apolis Journal that she “is sick of men. They are messy; they are silly; they talk utter nonsense. I am be ginning to believe that a trashy dime novel is better society than the aver age man and equally improving.” We told you so. We said when men began to employ girls in business offices that it wouldn’t be long before they found us out. No; you wouldn’t listen to us; you went on employing them, thinking that because a girl was pretty she had no sense. Now you see where you are. She has sized you up before she has been in the house long enough to learn where they keep tho postage stamps.— Burdette. COMMISSIONERS PROCEEDINGS. JULY 23rd.
