The May social given by the Y. P. 8. C E. at the M. E. Church last night was a success in all respects. A large crowd tnrned out, enjoyed themselves immensely and patronized the society liberally. If too want a nice suit of clothes mail© in the latest styles and guar anteed to fit see A. Kern, the mer chant tailor, in the Goodale building. He will be in his shop regularly here after and it will pay you to see him. A number of our citizens went out t*> the May Valley school yesterday to witness the closing exercises and take part in a basket picnic. All had a jolly time and praise the work of the scholars and teacher O. F. Leonard. A large delegation from the local lodges of I. O. O. F. and Rebeccas attended the celebration by the Ar kansas Valley Odd Fellows Associa tion at Rocky Ford last Monday. It was the occasion of the 78th anniver sary of the organization of the order. E. M. Slater was very seriously in jnred by an accident which hap|»cn©d to him while on the local freight near the XV ranch on last Tuesday. A sudden jerk of the train threw him against the stove in the caboose, causing very serious injuries which left him in a helpless condition. He was brought to his home iu Lamar iou the first passenger train and is still confined to his bed, bnt we are informed is slowly improving. Mr. Slater's many friends here will hope for his speedy recovery from his injuries. It is with a great deal of regret that we learn that A. N. Parrish has resigned as superintendent of the ! Amity canal. He has worked hard and faithfully to secure the water properly belonging to the consumers under that canal, and has of necessi jty beeu compelled to spend a great deal of his time up around Pueblo to keep the canals there from using water properly belonging to Prowers county. By hia positive nature he has been successful in securing a wholesome respect at the npper end of the river when he made his de mands. His other business interests demand more time than bo could give them and hence he had to give up the canal business. Mr. Mc- Dowell, of Garden City, Kansas, bas been elected as his successor. We wish him the same good success Mr. Parrish had. A New Chinese Wall. Lamar in the only town in Colora do that can boast of a modern Chinese wall, and the lacky owner of the same is our genial fellow townsman M. Strain. After a winter and spring spent in hard labor the wall is near ing completion. Whether Mr. Strain is afraid of an invasion by the Turks or is growing suspicions of Ips neigh bors that he requires such a large fortification, we have not l>een able to learn at the time of going to press. Cranada Items. The mumps are prevailing in Gra nada just now, but in a rather mild form. Mrs. Harry McDowell, of Lamar, .was visiting Mrs. W. H. Hale last /week. Nearly everybody in Granada has been setting oat fruit and shade trees daring the past two weeks. Fred Coolidge returned from Kan sas City Thursday morning where he went with a shipment of about 400 sheep. Mrs. Jesse Wright, of Lamar, has a stock of millinery goods in Gra nada this week at J. L. Mayfield’s store. The Scrivens family and Grant Hurt and family have left *for a trip to the Cripple Creek mining re gions. David Barnes’ school at Carlton closed last week and he is now in Granada devoting his time to his fruit trees and garden truck. A big debate takes place in the M. E. Church of Granada between Carl ton and Granada partita*. The some what | x>pulistic question for debate is, “Resolved, that America’s shame is greater than her glory.” Carlton affirms and Granada denies. Young Joe Horton, of Holly, came iuto Granada from the west Tuesday afternoon with three fine stag hounds. It was not long till Sheriff McKenzie got a dispatch to take possession of boy and dogs which he promptly did, and later on Grant Henkius and Deputy Sheriff Yockey anived. The dogs had been taken from Mr. Hen kins* house west of Lamar. He filed a criminal complaint against the boy whose trial is set for Tuesday next. Amity.
