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

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
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.—

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
