Abner Frazier, of Gould Farm, Mis souri, an old acquaintance of Grant Henkins, arrived in Lamar yesterday evening. D. C. Marker was in Kansas city last week and laid in a large supply of hard ware and furniture for the spring and Bummer trade. A prince of the house of Boyd arrived at the home of James hist Tuesday. Eleven pounds, in good health, and royal in every respect. Seventeen cars of lumber have already been received for the new mill, and work on the erection of the elevator frame will probably begin at once. Mort Strain is another citizen who is public spirited enough to put his home premises in good condition. His im provements are numerous and valuable. Police magistrate, Geo. L Himes, having refused to qualify, Judge C. E. Billingslea was elected to that position by the council on last Monday evening. Some boys torturing a burro into frenzied attempts to be freed, was a sight on our streets yesterday that should have had the attention of the marshal. The water has been turned out of the north side canal in order to permit the company to put a waste gate at Horse creek. Water will probably be turned jn again to-day. A marshal will be selected by the town council on next Monday evening. Applications for the appointment should be in the hands of the clerk by 7 o’clock p. m. of that day. A petition in condemnation, county Commissioners of Prowers county against Mary A. Fuller and Edson A. Fuller for right of way, was filed in the county court last Wednesday.

Consideration ‘ i &aom j< IP Mr. Burke, of Las Aujmas, a member ! j of the linn of Colt, Reinhart and Burke a ' contractors, was in Lamar yesterday. 1 L. Wirt Markham has contracted for , several Iwirrels of paint that he will have ! applied to his residence and numerous ; other buildings on his ranch. W. C. j I Markham is the operating artist and j t hundies the red paint. f A white crane, with black tippeo wings, was killed just west of town by 1 Sam Hunter and Whit Ford yesterday morning. The bird measuied eight feet from tip to tip and was truly a maguiti- * cent specimen. It was taken to Denver to be mounted. / 1 town council has ordered that the ' water works pump be run on Monday j and Friday of each week, and that par * ties who use hydrants for the purpose of irrigation be charged one dollar a mouth for the use of such water, beginning on ‘ the tirst day of May. Mrs. W. C. Gould returned from Can- ■ ton,!Kansas, on Thursday morning, ufter , a two weeks visit.

The county commissioners are tackline the question of (unking the road under the Bed Rock flume, south of town, puss able. This particular place has been . in a deplorable condition a long while and and it is to be hoped that the defects will be remedied by radical means. Fred J. Land, the genial special cor respondent of the Denver Republican. was in town yesterday. The Arkansas valley and Prowers county can expect a . first-class write up without any frills or rainbow hues, right to the point and just > what will do the country the most good. * At the school meetings of the various districts held on the second day of May. 3 90 far as reported, the following tax was voted: District No. 8, none; District No. 9, special school tax mills; District - No. 14, none; District No. 1G, special school tax 15 mills; District No. 19, special school tax 5 mills. 1 . The lead herd of N bar N cattles en ‘ route from Texas to Montana, in charge of foreman Steve Roof, is grazing south . of town to-day. This company will have seven more herds to pass through this spring, after which the XJT outfit will arrive. Lamar is one of the principal trading points for these cattlemen. Lamar camp. Woodmen of the World, had an interesting time last night. A F. Hotchkiss, W. & English. A. More 1 head; H. G. Bourno and Dr. W. E. Sears were visiting Woodmen from La Junta, in attendance. Bosidee enjoying an ele gant lap supper, they delivered the axe to County Commissioner James and , taught him to hew to the line. Marker and Strain have ten men er r ' ployed in their brick yards and eight in their stone quarries near town. The brick are being turned out at the rate of 10,000 per day, and the first kiln will be fired on Tuesday. They intend to burn four kilns of 100,000 brick each on this run, throe of which will be for the mill, and the other one for general sales. A good many of our citizens were dis appointed in not being able to attend the farmers’ institute at Las Animas last Wednesday. The morning train on which they intended to go was eight hours late. Our Bent county friends will understand the reason of our failure 1 to have a large representation, and we . trust will take the will for.the deed. A petition is being circulated and signed, asking the Santa Fe company to construct depot facilities at Carlton. A large amount of farming of a perma i nent nature is being done iu that part of the county and the signers believe that it would be a hardship to bo com pelled to haul their grain and other freight, ten or twelve milce by wagon, when the railroad rune before their doors. The board of county commissioners met in called session yesterday. There were present Commissioners Priddy, Pettee and James. The day was mostly taken up with the consideration of court and grand jury claims. The official bond of M. F. Dickinson. J. P. of Granada precinct, was approved. Tho board is in session again to day for tho purpose of , allowing miscellaneous claims and acting , on road matters. G. A. Watson has been elected a di rector from Prowers county, on the board of tho A rkansas Valley Fair As sociation. The other directors are: G. W. Swink, B. U. Dye, W. E. AndersoD, J. W. Porter and E.

Fosdiek, Jr., of Fowler. The first fair is to be held at Rocky Ford on Watermelon day. J. A. Stafford, district agent for the Pacific Mutual Life and Accident Iu- ' suranee company, was in town this week ' and took numerous applications. Among ‘ those whom he wrote up week before 1 last was Geo. A. Watson, who will re- ' ceive $25 per week while his hand is dis- ' abled by tho wound he received from the foot pads last Monday night. The company is an old and reliabie one, and Mr Stafford, who is a responsible and esteemed citizen of Pueblo, deserves the success he is meeting with here. I A new hose house and council room i,= j next in order. Plans and sy>ecifications , are now being prepared by D. C. Marker. | It is intended to be put on the railroad right of way. Some objection to this t plan has been expressed by several of t our business men .is they think it would d hurt, rather than help the looks of our j town. Wouldn’t it be better to buy a lot in some convenient locality and put the building there? Then the town c would have full control of the premises, C and it would avoid that bunched ap- tl pearance on the right of way to some ti extent. ti In last week's report of the accident , at Robinson we published the name of Milton Hightower as the man killed. It should have been George N. Dykes, u . | cowboy for the Prairie Cattle company, i The Oriental dance, given at Brown's 1 : hall, last Monday night, was well at : tended. Besides the resident members and their ladies, a number of visiting ! Princes from Pueblo were present. It was one of the most enjoyable events of the season. The benquent prepared at [ the Commercial hotel was elegant, and j greatly enjoyed by the numerous guests. ! - George A. Watson was held up by tramps last Sunday night. He was on his way home from the midnight train and was aceoetod by a man in front of Johnston's store on Main street, w ho po litely requested 'him to hold up his hands. Watson refused, and in the scuttle that ensued received a pistol ball through his left hand. After the second shot was fired another robber appeared and the two systematically relieved their victim of seven twenty dollar gold pieces. George says that they left him the price of one year’s subscription to the Irrigation Age , but failed to leave j address. Cranada Items. Special to the Register. Gra?*.vi>\. Friday, May Gth. In school district No. 11 on the north j side of the Arkansas river, John Q. Ha i german was elected secretary for one year and W. A. Merrill treasurer for 3 years. The election of school directors did not ’ attract the usual attention in Granada t only 14 voles being polled. J. L. May* r held was elected president for two years t and K. A. Mas well treasurer for three years. M. Scott Chilcott was greeting his P many friends in Granada last Saturday ' and Sunday. On Monday aborning Mr Chilcott accompanied by his wife and K baby left for Pueblo, which will beroaf j ter bo their permanent home. , In the XV school district Miss Z*>a B. B. Lee was elected trustee for three years. Ths vote would indicate that thii ’ is the banner district in Prowers couutv 3 east of Laniur in point of population. It 1 is also one of the wealthiest district in 3 the county. Floy, the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. F. Dickinson, died on last Mon •lay of scarlet fever. She was buried on Tuesday. Funeral exercises were con . ducted at the house and at the grave by Rev. N\ H. Gale. The afflicted family - have the sympathy of the entire com i muuity.
