We copy the following irom a circular: “Lamar is the best town in the county. Do the people wish to de stroy the best town in the county? If Lamar flourishes it will build up and become a market for every farm er who raises a pound of produce to sell. It is true the farmer supports the towns; and it is equally true that the towns support the farmer. Do not the people of the towns buy everything they eat, wear and feed? If the farmer raises crops more than enough for his own nse, what does be do with it? Does he not take it to the towns to sell? Suppose you destroy the towns and send the peo ple living in them out of the country, destroy their homes and firesides, which are as dear to them as are any one else’s, and where is your market. But A. R. Black says he will build a town at Alliance, and you can go there and sell your produce. But if your best town is destroyed, do you think that after looking over the deserted and ruined towns that were built years ago, people with means would ventare to invest a dollar in building up a country in which such signs of desolution are to be seen? Farmers, what enhances the value of your farms in any greater manner than being close to a good town? And whv?lt is because they have the advantages or a market that will in crease and become better every year. Does any farmer want to sell his farm, and if so what better can he say than that it is close to a good town? But if that town is destroyed, what worse can you say than “I am not near any town, and there is no town of any consequence in the county. It is true there is a county seat in the county, but that don’t amount to much; only a store, a sa loon, a blacksmith shop and a court house —and such a one as it is, too!” VOTE FOR For County Seat. Speaking of Alliance anil our coun ty seat contest, the Las Animas Leader says: Mr. Black is sanguine of success in bis scheme, but the chances are that the splitting ot the vote will only temporarily put off a choice be tween the two principal towns of Lamar and Granada. The scheme savors too much of Kansas tactics for the people of Colorado to take kindly to it. Mr. Black is au enter prising, energetic citizen, but if his object is really to capture the county seat, his efforts in that behalf ex pended will undoubtedly meet with signal failure. Lamar will be the | future and permanent county seat of ! Prowers county despite all efforts contrarily expended. VOTE FOII LAMAR — for— COUNTY SEAT. County seat matters are waxing warm in Prowers county. The gran gers threaten to wipe out all the old towns, and erect a new city out on | the “lone prairie, n which shall be Prowers county’s capitol. The whole valley seems to be county seat bat tlefields.—Rock)' Ford Watermelon. Partly right and partly wrong, the i lone prairie” is all right but that the grangers as a class aro into tho | scheme, is a mistake. To make a long story short it is A. R. Black and ! a few grangers. VOTE FOtt LAMAR —FOR— County Scat. Teacher: “Miss Sinnieo, please parse the sentence, ‘Adolphus mar ried Caroline.’” Miss S.: “Well, Adolphus is a noun, because it is tho name of a thing; married is a con junction becanse it joins Adolphus and Caroline; and Caroline is a verb, oecause it governs tho noun.”
