Hadley, in Good House* keeping, thus discourses on the time ly pumpkin pie: Take a sharp knife—the best of its kind— And pare off the pumpkin’s golden rind; Then cut into cube-shaped blocks, f buff. And slowly simmer till solt enough. Run through a sieve—the best to be bought— Till you have of the sifted pump kin a quart. Ob, the “cropple crown” hen will mourn to day For her rifled nest in the scented hay. For ere your pumpkin pies you can bake I Out of her nest yon must nine eggs take Beat yolks and whites in a separate dish Till both are foamy and light as you wish. White sugar, one cup and a half; you take. And two qn »rt* of milk your pies to make; Then ot cinnamon, nutmeg, and mace, each one; You take a teaspoouful ere you are doue. I i Next soices, sugar, eggs, pumpkin, and milk, You must heat together till “smooth as silk ” (That is the curious, homely phrase My grandmother used in those old time days) Now a dozen of raisins, more or less, To each pie will add flavor, you must confess. I The whole must be baked in a shcll-like crust. And, just as it hardens, with sugar you dust. If you follow this rule, when done you’ll cry, “Here's a genuine, old-time pump kin pie!” An Itallian in Boston, who had i stationed himself close by the en trance to the circus grounds, that he might more easily dispose of the fruits which he had to seU, became |so interested in two Turk who had j escaped from the grounds, and had ' been strolling about the Back Bay, j that he forgot all about the wagon j load of bananas which were beside i him, until he turned suddenly and ob ! served a horse attached to an express I wagon calmly eating from a stock of I bananas as if they had been placed i there for his especial benefit. The spectacle of a horse eating bananas' was so amusing to the bystanders that they didn’t call the owner’s at tention to it, but when the Italian who owned the fruit, and the Hibern ian who drove the hore began to ar gue with each other, there was more excitement than was beard inside the circus tent. —Boston Traveler. Old Martin—Colonel of the —th Cavalry, was a martinet in all save his own habits. On one occasion , the regiment was about to start on a j long march through Texas, and or- , ders were issued that baggago should , he reduced to the minimum. Lieu * tenant B— had just received from j his father a small box of books twelve !by fourteen inches in measurement, and timidly asked the colonel if he might not take it along. “Good gad! No, sir! Couldn’t hear of such a thing, sir}” “I'm very sorry, colonel! It will be very dull out there, without any reading. My father sent uic a barrel J of whisky, too, but of course I couldn’t | take that” I “Good gad! Yes! Anything in ! reason.” It wan agreed by everybody in the ear that she was the handsomest woman they ever saw, save the New \ ork Sun, and the man in the seat with her probably noticed the slv glances and hoard some of the whis pered exclamations. He became rest less and uneasy, and by and by he got up and walked back to where a couple of drummers sat and said: “Boys, she’s rnv wife.” “Yesl” responded one. “I allow she’s homely ’nuff to scare a hungry bear out of a hog-pen, but it’s all my fault.” “Indeed!” “And I’ll tell you the story, be cause there is a great moral lesson in it. We was engaged to be married. I took her into Syracuse to a Fourth of July. There she met Bill Prime, au old beau of hers, and to make me jealous, as some gals will, you know, she agreed to ride home with him. It hit me hard, as you may believe, and so I went out to the stable and drove lacks into Bill’s harness. When they came to start out the horse ran away. Bill jumped out and did’t get a scratch, but Mary staid till the buggy strucK a bridge and was all sniased up. She lost twelve teeth, bad her nose broken, her mouth torn out at the corner, an eye cocked up. her nose turned in, her tongue bit half iu-two, and the color of her hair changed to the brindle you now see before you.” “I see the moral lesson.” “Not yit you don’t. That came in when I tried to give her the shake and crawl out of the marriage. Her old dad put on the screws and I had to come to time or lose my farm, and so I walked chalk. The great moral lesson is, never get mad at your best gal. If you do get mad don’t make a fule of yourself. That’s all, boys, and I hope the warning will sink deep into yer hearts.” Those who went south of the Cim arron to search for cattle returned the early part of the week, having found but three, aud they were so mulillated that they where with diffi culty recognized. The old brand had been cancelled and a new one placed on the opposite side of the animal; tiio ears were either cut short off or slit and the tail shaved. Such dastardly work on the part of those vagabonds aud sneak thieves who infest the Neutral Strip may some day be summarily dealt with. The citizens of Baca county should turn out enmassed, and Rottle the dif ficulty.—Springfield Herald. There is something out of joint t with our term industry. We do not i alude to Colorado farming alone, but f to the entire country. The assessor 5 for the state of New York thinks that € within a few years there will he none hut tenant farmers in the Kmpire state. Mortgages he s.iys, have in- j creased everywhere, w hile farm \al- ues have been depreciating. A sim ilar state of things exist in the west and is reaching Colorado. The sub ject is worthy of thought. Is it reck less extravagance? Is it poor farm-1 ing, or is it the government?—Field and Farm There may be no devil in the world, but sometimes wo think there I i* too much God, and a very gener ous one, Luo. Somehow the thought comes up that he always soothes and never punishes. If there was a devil about The Graphic would like to turn ' him loose among the scheming • thieves who infest the higher busi ' ness pursuits of life; a real live, grim. steel-hearted and iron-handed devil, t who would pound out justice to the genteel thieves and unprincipled ' schemers. —Denver Graphic. r ) One of the peculiar features of last t night’s fire was that three of our leading insurance men lost valuable i property, and not one had a cent of insurance.—Trinidad News. NUMBER 29. The New Counties to the East. Never in the history of the state have the counties east and south-east of this city exhibited half the enter prise or had under way so many im provements, or been permitted to en joy the flattering prosects of a large increase of population, both farming and urban, as they do at this moment. From Nepesta to the state line the people are awake to the possibilities of the country and doing what they can to build it up. They are digging ditches, making roads, building mills, churches, school houses and homes, plowing the soil, planting orchards and vineyards; and doing it all to an extent that a year ago would have been thought impossible. The efforts already made to bring in colonies of settlers promise the best results. If the last legislature had done nothing else it would have been worth what cost for dividing the counties east of here, which awakened a spirit of rivalry and arouse from dormant state the energy to which the present con dition of thing is due. From this growth, present and prospective, Pu eblo is to derive a large share of the benefits. It means purchasers in this market and supplies for our manu facturing population. It means strength to every interest in Pueblo and to southern Colorado, and wbat our city can do to help m the devel opment ought to bo done.—Pueblo Review. One of the oars loaded with cattle, from the cross L outfit that were shipped last Saturday, had a defec tive door which gave away, as the train started for the east, near the bridge over the Purgatoire river and the cattle tumbled out and down the embankment, one steer was caught and suspended by his horns from the frame work of the bridge, four or five head were killed outright and ten or twelve seriously injured.—Las Ani mas Leader J. L. and J. W. Potter and some of their adjacent neighbors are tak ing a ditch out of Timpas creek, be low the Fairuiouut flume. They will construct a dam across Timpas. It is expected that the seepage from the Fairmount ditch and other canals that are likely to cross Timpas will furnish sufficient water. A similar enterprise is talked of by some of the Sand creek farmers under the Henry canal.—La Junta Tribune. Russian influenza, the new epidem ic, is being spread all over the coun try. The microbes cling to green backs, they say, and are thus dissem inated through the circulation of pa por money. No country editor has yet been attacked by Russian influ , enza.—Pueblo Opiniou. Managing Editor—You say that you have cultivated hot-house lilac bushes that have attained a height of fifty feet? Horticultual Editor—Yes, why? Managing Editor (musingly)— Noting, only I •vi-li I could lilac that.—Texas Siftings. Six hundred feeding steers arrived here this morning Irom South Park, and will be winter-alfalfa fed in this vicinity. They belong to A. D. Rawlings, of Lamar.—Rocky Ford Watermelon. O. G.

The Koen supply store has been moved back to Lamar. This loss to the town was brought about by a man who has always worked against the town.—Granada Exponent. T. L.
