For particulars regarding admission address the sup erintendent MELON GROWERS ORGANIZE. A Large Meeting of Farmers Tues day Decides to Organize an Association. There was u largo meeting in A. E. Bent’s office Tuesday of the farmers interested in the movement to form a melon growers’ association here. Those present seemed to bo unani monsly agreed in favor of the plan and the talk was all along that. line. \V. li. Gibson, the Rocky Ford nursery man, was present by iuvita ticu and made u short talk explaining the end sought for in these organiza tions, and the benefits which had been obtained for the members by the association at Rocky Fold, which made a successful experiment along this line the past summer that will prove of value to the entire valley. Mr. Gibson said that the eastern market for cantaloupes was so great that there was no danger of an over supply being raised, and that the w ide reputation for excellencegaiued by the Rocky Ford melons this year would insure the sale at good prices of the entire product of this section of the Arkansas valley. Ho told the farmers that there was no reason why with the same care they could not raise as good melons as the Becky Ford farmers, and he blro explained that with proper handling Browers county coaid get into the markets from ten days to two w»*eks ahead of Otero county, thus giving us an advantage which would offset the great reputa tion of the Ford melons. A great many questions were asked Mr. Gibson by the farmers with re gard to the care, cultivation, best va rieties and shipment of the melons and the profits to l>e derived from the industry, all of which bo answered in a satisfactory manner. There was great interest shown in liis remarks and it was evident tlmt the farmers were very favorably impressed with the industry. The meeting voted unanimously to orgarize the Lamar Melon Growers’ Association, and a list was opened for the signatures of those who wish to become members and for the num ber of acn*s of melons they are will ing to guarantee to raise the coining season. All those present signed the list and over one hundred acres were subscribed at the meeting. Quito a number of names have been added since, and by the time the first meet ing of the members of the association is held it will be one of thestrougest organizations in the valley. The first meeting of the members for the purpose of forming a perma nent organization will be held the latter part of next week, when officers for the ensuing year will be elected ami articles of incorporation prepared for filing. All farmers who wish to raise melons the coming season should make it a point to get their names in early and take part in organizing. 4756 RABBITS. It Proves to Ee tho Second Largest Score Ever Mode. So many of the teams carrying the babbit Day hunters were delayed un til last Saturday morning that, the of ficial score could not be announced until noon on Saturday. It was found that the estimates of the evening he fore based upon the result of the first NUMBER 30. day’s work and the portion of the second day’s game brought in was far short of the actual result, ns when the last load was in the score stood at 47511 rabbits, 117 wild geese, 1 wolf and 1 bald eagle. All the sports men were well pleased with the hunt, and promise a larger crowd next year. The wild geese were quite plenti ful and several of the sportsmen de voted considerable of their time to them. (Jne very noticeable feature of the game brought in this year was largely increased per cent of the cot tontails among the rabbits slain. If this is any evidence to base a fair judgment upon, it looks as if bunnie was gradually supplanting his larger and more active brother in our alfalfa fields. The game has pever before been half so well displayed as it was this year and the committee deserves the highest praise for their work. The rabbits were left in position until noon on Monday and were the won der of all visitors as well as the trav elers passing through on the various trains. They were shipped on the local freight Monday to Denver, Col orado Springs and Pueblo, from which places they were distributed to the poor of those cities and neigh boring towns. The rack and game was photo graphed by Bottomley, who made an excellent picture which is now on sale. Cranada Itoms. J. W. Sullivan, for many years the railroad section foreman at this place, was in Granada last week. \V. D. Combs, of Canon City, a former Granada citizen, was down to the rabbit hunt last week and inter viewed old friends. Will was one of Granada’s pioneers. The M. E. Sunday-school will have a Christmas tree on Christmas eve. There will also be a musical and lit erary performance in connection w ith it, participated in by both the public school and the Sunday-school. The Odd Fellows have elected the following officers for the term begin - ing in January 1898: Jas. Baikley, N. G.; Ben Riley, V. G.; J. L. Mny tield, secretary, and Robt. J. Koonee, treasurer. They will be installed at the first regular meeting in January. The spring building boom for 1898 has already begun in Granada. Grant Srneltz has bought a block in the north part of town near the residence of W. A. Merrill and has moved on it the old house near the calaboose which he will convert into a residence. Jas. Keairns has also bought a block west of Srneltz and w’ill move the house in which ho now lives to it. Both blocks are to be planted in trees and otherwise improved. The new settlers on the north side have inaugurated a big rabbit hunt for .Christmas day. Two captains will choose up sides and the defeated side will pay the expenses for a lig oyster supper to be eaten at the res idence of Jas. Hagerdorn on Monday night following. An interesting feat ure is that nobody will know’ which side he is on until Monday night. A largo number will participate in the hunt and it promises to be an enjoy able affair. Amity.
