THE LAMAR REGISTER LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, MARCH 22, 1890. Colorado Springs, Colo., Mar. 13, 1890. Dear Sir: It is proposed to publish weekly, during the growing season, a bulletin setting forth the m concise language, the condition of the various crops throughout the agiioultural districts of ih- State. This has for several years been d<»ne in many other state* and has been much appreciated ov farmers and others, for whose special benefit it is intended. The Chief Signal Office, Washington. D. C. has liiected ail effort Do made to in troduce this feature to the agricul tursl aad allied interests of Colorado. I am very anxious to do this, but its success will depend on the interest taken by the people to be benefitted. It will b« necessirv to have reliable reports sent to this office weekly from many sections, widely distributed, throughout the districts where these iutercsts lie in new farming country, as well as districts thoroughly culti vated. The requisite reports require but two or three urinates work only once a week and blanks, envelopes etc., are furnished free. The work of this office will be mainly the com piiation ami general station of these reports ami tt-e publication of the hallern. Copies are mailed each re porter. the press, boards of trade, to observers of the Signal Service with other State Weather Services, to Washington etc. This distribution of such information cannot fail to be valuable to those already here, as well as others contemplating to lo cate here. Anv person who is will ing to a-sist in this work is cordially requested to inform the undersigned also invited to give the names of those in any othei section who mav t>e interested. It was omitted above to stale that the reports state the ef feet of the weather of the past week on the crops, their general condition, whether early or late etc., etc., any t log the reporter desires to say '1 he growing season being near at hand we w.;l have to act prompt!v, as the arranging of details will take some time W.B. Miller, U.S Signal Officer. Colorado Spring*, Colo. George T. Herbert in charge of the signal »ei v i«e in this citv, has the blanks referred to above, which he will furnish free to any one who will assist in furnishing reports from | this county. Parents often wonder who or what has ruined their boys. They hav«- b**en in scheol every day, but the lessons of deportment and morality inculcated there seem to have wasted <>n barren ground. The truth is, the hoys sre allowed to be on the streets from the time school clones until late % night. The street corner, the best nlace in the world for teaching vice, nrofl gancy and crime. Nearly all the bad laugoage idle and vicioos habits which boys acquire are learn ed on the streets late at night. Teachers may be able to accomplish a little in counteracting the evil in fineness, but much of their labor is in vain until parents cooperate with them by keeping their boys off the sfreets ar night.—Garden City [Kan.] Democrat. The labor societies sre asking. • Wb*t constitutes a day’s work?” That depends on your occupation. If vou lay brick, f ight hours; if yon keep house, sixteen hours; if you are a perter in a sleeping oar, twenty; if vou serve the government, one hour; if you are a newspaper man, eighteen. Pueblo Merry World. Col. Joe Fenton informs os thatT. C. Henry’s new soath side ditch will positively be bmlt, and that three hundred teams will be at work there j on before yon oan batter your bread. ; Col. Joe is right-of-way man for the : enterprise. Rooky Ford Water melon. From F’ialci and Farm. A young woman began a song: “Ten Thousand Leaves are Falling.” She pitched it too hizh, screeched, and stopped. “Start her at five thou- 4 sand,” cried an auctioneer.” Between Pueblo au<i the eastern border of the state, on the coumry watered by the Arkansas there will be between thirty and fifty thon-and acre* ot wheat this present season. Young chickens for broilers have made theii appearance in the Denver market and although no larger than quails, command seventy five cents apiece They aie rather an expensive luxury. The v alley of the A kansus in the average seasons will yield one crop or more of alfalfa than will the country about Denver or the northern sections. There is that d’ffarence in the length of the f-e*s<>n. The Farmers allliunce would ap - pear to be a growing institution in the southern part of the state In L.as Animas county its members number upwards of 400. In Kit Carson 400, in Costilla 200. in Pueb lo 300. and Huerfano 175. The or der is quite new in all of these conn ties. The man with a political bee in his honnei, or the man too lazv to work, or who is too shiftless to superintend his work in person, should clear of the farming business. He will never make a success, bat will be abasing his country and c alling for his own failure. Colorado is not without such men. The “open season” for fishing in Colorado-la bow closed, as bv fishing at anv time during the months of November, December, January. Feb ruarv. Much, April. May and June people inervr the r-k of pen ilties im posed by act of 18S7, which make it a misdemeanor, and upon conviction before any justice of the peace the party is subject to a fine of not less than fifty dollars nor more than one hundred dollars. The man who is known to bo hon est and sound judgement, commands the confidence of others. While men will not trust a rogue out of their sight, they confide in the integrity of anv honest man. He may be in debt; he n»ay have to borrow; he may be dependent upon the help and good will of others; but so long as he will tell the truth, and honestly try to fulfill his engagement* his character counts for thousands and is worth more to him than silver and gold. “A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.” A man who transacts business year after year un der this maxim will not often lack for friends in time ot need. Bat the man who, for some present advao tages, condecends to cheating, false hood and rascality, will soon find that for a temporary gain he has suf fered gitfat loss. His character is gone, society watches him as it does a thief, and long years may elapse before he recovers from the effects of his own suicidal act. If yon have no other weath let your character be your capital.—Pueblo Merry World Congressman Anderson of Kansas says that Jay Gould i*> the smartest man this country has ever prodaced. Mr. Anderson bases his judgment on the fact that, whereas the farmers of Kansas get only 13 cent* a bnshel for their corn, it sells in Now York for 50 cents, yielding a bigger profit to Jay Gould and his ilk than to the farmers. Probably Mr. Anderson’s constituents will differ with him a* the proper way to describe Mr. Gonld’s peculiar talents. Mr. Gould may be smart, but they would prob ably say he is too darned smart.— Boston Herald. Hen. C. D. Ford of the Lamar land office passed through this city last week on bis way to Denver. The land office at Lamar is among the best if not the best conducted offioe in the west.—Pueblo Review. The telegraph this morning bring* ih'e report that the entire Cherokee Strip went from the Arkansas River, 180 miles long and sixty five wide, ha* bt*eu swept by a prairie fire. This 1 tire is HMHumed to have been kindled bv conspirators in the interest of the boomers to drive off the cattle and 1 give them immediate possession. Two hundred thousand cattle are de prived of the ordinary means of ex istence and will be fed on Kansas corn till the grass grows. Thus comes another illustration of that beneficent ordering of things by di vine providence through which no harm is unmixed with benefit Some of the pinched Kansas farmers will find greateful relief in the sale of their corn at fair prices —Denver Times. The latest contrivance which is in teresting the ladies is a glove with a pocket in it. The pocket is a tinv affair, fixed in the palm of the left glove, and is thus silent testimony to the fact that most women are right handed. It is for nickies and dimes. On entering a car or stage, the fin g**rs of the right hand deftly open the little pocket, and the necessary change is easily secured. It is a ques tioi! whether the gloves will become the rage. Most women are mighty particular about the fit of their gloves, and whether or not th® insertion of a pocket, no matter how tiny, in the palm of one of them mars ths sym metry of a pair is a problem which experience alone can solve.—New York Sun. Sorghum is fast taking a promi oent place m the field-crops of the farmers of the west. There is no part ot the plant but what is useful for stock feed. The seed being pre f.*r*-d bv many to oats as horse feed. When fed with com it will quickly fatten and make the finest of pork. It 1* equally good for cattle and sheep And w hen it is considered that it is a ware crop, requiring little work in comparison with other crops, there is an wonder that it -is a favorite. Care should be taken not to plant it too close to broom corn, or they will mix and bo»h crops be damaged.— Progressive Farmer. A short time ago Senator Hoar of Massachusetts, speaking upon ths subject of public patronage, defend ed the making of appointments on Dolitical grounds and said that he believed that when Mr. Cleveland substituted democrats for republi cans at all the principal points within s!t months after his inauguration, he ■*id right. The Senator declared that this was ‘‘a government by party.” In this he unquestionably was right. No party can reasonably expect to maintain itself which does not place the civil set vice of the country in the hands of its adherents.—Denver Re publican. James R.-«d, of Las Auimas, was awarded one cent damages against the north side ditch company at the recent term ef the Bent county oosrt, and was released from the payment of several hundred dollars doe the company for water. The grounds for the actiou was the failure of the company to furnish water. The case between J. F. Minniss and the com pany was settled adversely to Mr. Minniss, the conrt holding, as we un derstand it, that he could not profit by the rescinding of a contract which he himself had helped to make.—La Junta Tribune. A bit of philosophy in ths Solid Muldoon last week: The Philosopher is 48 years old to day, and our magnificent preserva tion is due absolutely to regular hours and temporats habits.

Several of the larger boys in the school were caught in the act of in dulging in the seductive but health destroying cigarette oh the shady side of the school house duriug the intermission p*-rion last Monday. At this practice of smoking on the school grouuds is striotly legislated against by both the board and the principal, the boys are in mortal dread of the consequences which have not as yet manifested themselves by word or sign.
