On December 10th the excursion will be run from Denvor, Colorado Slings, Pueblo, Trinidad and inter mediate points, over the Pau-Handle Route, to Folsom and return, at $5.00 maximum rate. GEO. ADY, General Passenger Agent. j Bent county does not seem to be .done in the great amount of scratch ing of party candidates on tho fifth. Prowers county which is strongly republican elected a majority of the democratic candidates. Otero coun | ty which unqestionably has a repub j lican majority, chose several demo* J ‘‘rats for officers. There were other I issues seemingly to the people of the ; counties in south-eastern Colorado . besides the single one ot polities, personal matters and reasons entered largely into tho canvass and the peo ple felt that the year was one when uo obligation to a strict adherence to party should control them, conse quently the officers elected in the various counties were more by friends and upon personal grounds than party or party principles and the relative strength of the parties in either of the three mentioned coun ties cannot by the vote east for the representative tickets be estimated. In bent county, if the election has demonstrated anything the demo crats are slightly in the majority but that majority is so slight that; good men upon the republican ticket or an active campaign will easily overcome it. At any rate their num erical strength is in no wise sufficient I to dishearten the republican party of tho county.—Las Animas Leader. The following truthful observation is from tlie Pueblo Chieftain and applies equally as well to Lamar as to Pueblo: “No paper can be publish ed without home patronage, and every man is interested in keeping up a home paper. If a railroad ol factory is wanted, the newspapers are expected to work for it. If a public meeting is wanted for any purpose, tho newspaper is called upon for a free notice. If any of the societies have a supper or a reception of any kind, the newspaper is expected to give the necessary notice. The newspaper must puff the schools, and everything else, to advance the inter ests of the bussincss of tho place, and then give them a handsome no- . tice when they pass away. And yet some of them do nothing to keep a home paper.” A Sheridan Lake telegram last Saturday said: The most horrible! affair that has ever happened in this community occurred this evening. Phillip Thompson, while trying to start a tiro in his cook stove, spilled some oil oil live coals, which blazed up and caught his clothes. M. I». Hunt was in the house with him and made all possiblo efforts to rescue Thompson but was unsuccessful and was compelled to tear his own clothes off in order to keep from burning. After tearing his clothes off ho ran about a quarter of a mile for assis tance; the run, with breathing the smoke, have about exhausted him and it is doubtful if ho will recover. Thompson’s remains were after wards recovered, tho arms, bead and legs, beiug burned entirely off. He has no relatives in this vicinitv.- As a demonstration of affection, a miner near Fairplay has lately sent his wifo to town with a run-away horse and a light wagon, to get a load ot giant powder. The horse, ot course, ran away—but Providence was on the side of tho wife, and the powder failed to go off. It is prob ably waiting until the husband looks down a drillhoe to see what the mat ter is, before it explodes. Fairplay has been callod eccentric ever since Dick Allen’s reply to Carl Wulsten’s challenge to fight a duel in 1873, hence tho miner’s plan to get rid of his wife will not excite much com. mend, though it was a trifle novel.— San Juan Prospeotor. It is said that Rocky Ford cast only oue straight Republican ticket, whilo not a straight Democratic tick et was to be found in tho box.— Rocky Ford Watermelon. One of the curiosities in Superin tendent Ridgway’s office is a hand some deer’s head with its antler’s wound about with a perfect tangle of telegraph wires. The deer was found by A. W. Joues and A. C. Ridgway a few weeks since, about a mile and » quarter above llecla Junction on the Calumet branch. It had evidently caught its antlers in the telegraph lino which was down at this point, while crossing the track, and in its efforts to free itself had only become more hope lessly entangled until finally it was choked to death by the tightly drawn wire about its neck. The telegraph wire method of catching deer is a novel one and it is understood that a patent will be applied for.—Sahda Mail. The Associated press dispatch in yesterday morning’s Gazette announ cing the serious illness of Jefferson Dayis, at his plantation “Brierfield,” near Vicksburg, created consterna tion in the family of Mr. J. A, Ilayes, jr., of this city, Mrs. Hayes being the daughter of Mr. Davis. It was the first intelligence they had received of his illness, and telegrams were imme diately sent making inquiries. In the afternoon Mr. Hayes received a tele gram stating that Mr. Davis was able to leave the plantation for his home at Beauvior by steamboat, so that it is not thought there is any serious ailment.—Colorado Springs Gazette. Third-Termism is very distasteful to our people. General Grant’s friends wanted him to have a third term as president and failed. Ex- Governor St. John of Kansas, forced his nomination the third time and was defeated at the polls by Ex- Governor Glick. Now we have an other case from Ohio where Governor Foraker wa3 just defeated for a third term as governor of that state. Yes, third-termisin is very unpopular in America, which fact is fully attested by the incidents above referred to.— Dodge City [Kan.] Globe-Republi can. A man by the name of Crandall in North Park recently killed a silver tip bear that dressed 1,200 pounds. Two hundred and fifty pounds of bear grease or oil was extracted from the carcass. It is not generally known that the so-called silver tip bear is a genuine grizzly on a small scale. The difference in size is caus ed by the silver tip’s environment and lack of such large quantities of vegetable food as is easily obtained by bis California brethren.—Laramie Boomerang. Last week W. N. Randall finished surveying on the north sido for a proposed canal which has been known as the Bent County Canal. He goes to Pueblo roou to make a plat, of the route, and says he is working for Mr. Holbrook, but de clines to say what the prospects are for the immediate carrying out of the project. This week ho has been engaged surveying ditch routes for private parties between here and Rocky Ford.—La Junta Tribune. By the following item wc judge Bro. Magill of the Walsenburg World is engaged in record hunting as well as explaining some records: The “Majah” makes the serious charge that wc use to run a Demo cratic paper in Las Animas. What was it you used to do in La Junta, “Majah?” Eh? “A little record now and then, is relished by the best of men.” The Pueblo Working men’s Jour nal makes the following mention of a formerly Lamar couple: Johnnie bautrich, the skillful and competent foreman of the Journal job office, has taken up his residence on the comer of C and Spring streets. Ho and his worthy little wifo arc nicely situated, and keeping house just like old folks. NUMBER 24. Wes Ferguson and hie plucky stage drivers deserve much credit for their untiring zeal in carrying the mail over the road during the heavy snow storms. The travel was exceedingly slow, attended with a heavy expense and great hardships. The Ferguson stage line is certainly one of the best m the West.—Spring field Herald. The country east of us is swarming with reformed gamblers, reformed prize-fighters, and reformed rakes of all kinds, Salvation Army cranks and long,haired gospel experts who make a farce of religion. Denver should secure a cargo of them for a new sensation, or induce some of its old politicians to reform.—Denver Graph ic. It gives us particular pleasuro to note that ourjold friend Judge C. C. Goodale, of Lamar, has been appoint ed by President Harrison, Receiver of the Lamar land office. Judge Goodale is in every way qualified and worthy of the office. A better appointment could not have been made.—Walsenburg World. The regular quarterly examination of teachers for certificates will be held iu Lamar on Friday aud Satur day November 20th and 30th, 1889. Teachers holding temporary certifi cates will appear at that time for a complete examination as required by law. F. E. Irwin, 21tf. Co. Supt. Hon. C. C. Goodale, the newly ap pointed Receiver of the Lamar land office, is in the city to-day and made the Watermelon a welcome call. *Mr. Goodale is one of the staunch, stead fast Republicaus'of the''/Valley, and deserves the "‘"position to" which he lias beenjjchosen.—Rocky*Ford W atermelon. Mr.'Ugland is in Pueblo and his wife, who is worthy to be a descend ant of Daniel Boon, harnessed up their team tookTa*;load of posts to the railroad, rather thau have the team and hersolf idle. Can any other town show such a plucky woman?—Mulvane News. The water in the Snake river has been so low this seasoiTthat 'settlers have bitterly complained|(of the dust raised by the salmonjgoing up stream. They threaten to ask for an appro priation to sprinkle the river next year if the nuisance is repeated.— Alta Californian. The Pueblo Opinion gives the snap away in these words: Large gains for the democrats in several state elections’this fall give the unterrified an excuse for enjoying life. It will work in the usual way— give them pluck enough to bet on a losing man in 1892. The Trinidad News felt callod upon to hit the lawyers like this: If thercis any one thingmore thau another that will make a tired man really weary, its* is to observe the motions of a laj’er with a snow shov el. Colorado’s Anarchists met at Coli seum Hall on Sunday night and ex ploded their harmless but the red flag eanuot bo waved in Den ver. American citizens know’ only the star spangled banner. All others are revolutionary.—Denver Graphic. Bears are very numerous in this vicinity. The tracks of two of them were discoyerea very near Vaughn’s hotel yesterday morning and a party went out in search of them, but they returned after the faslion of poor Dan. —Palmer Lake Herald. Simeral—That adage, “Marry in liasto aud repent in leisure,” is ail bosh. Maddox—Why? Simeral Because married men have no leisure.—Life.
