The foundations are laid, and the walla are assuming shape. C. G. Wade, apecial agent of the Springtield Fire and Marine Insur ance Co, visited C. B. Thotnan, the company's agent here, on Monday. Janitor McClme complains that he cannot let “Old Glory” float from the j court house because the flag ia about worn out, the ropes sre gone and other things are not as they should be. It is said that Tommy Colebonrn, who probably enjoys the distinction of being the smallest tuba player in the state, crawls into his horn to sleep at night and finds it very com fortable. T. B. Hiskev. representing the To peka Capital, was canvassing for sub scribers here during Wednesday. As he represented a good paper heprob ably secured a comfortable list of readers. Joseph C. Galbreath vs. Phillip Mower was the title of a contest tried Wednesday before the land office, and involved the NE-18-21-47. The case was ex parte. C. H. Walters was principal witness. The irrepressible Perin, represent ing the Out West Printiug and Sta tionery Co., of Colorado Springs, came into town Saturday last and in terviewed his customers, especially the court house officials. Harry Wolf has returned from his bicycle jaunt up to Nebraska, and has resumed his place at the mill and among his friends. Harry looks quite browned up as the result of his trip, and reports a splendid time. J. K. Doughty obtained leave of the District Judge to resign from the committee appointed to examine the county treasurer's books, and C. G. Lynch was appointed in his place. The committee is busy at their work. Quite a number of our young men have signified their willingness toen list and go to the war if the chance is given them. It is reported that S. K. Myer is about to organize a com panv and tender the services thereof to the governor. The small boy of the town is ex hibiting great patriotism, and quite a company of them are parading the streets carrying flags and gun sticks. Their enthusiasm is evidenced by cheers and yells that would do credit to the Texas rangers. On Monday afternoon quite an ex citing horse race took place on the track north of town. Everett’s “Prince” ran against “Gipsy Queen,” a horse from Pueblo, and beat the latter by about a head. The race was for ten dollars a side. A gang of men are engaged in putting up an extra wire along the line of the Postal Telegraph Compa ny's route, and were busy part of Wednesday making the connections with the Lamar office. Two new signs were tacked at the office. Two contests instituted by John Hess against claimants holding land in the extreme east end of the county were heard in the laud office last Sat urday. The entries contested were made in 1887 and lied been practi cally abandoned from date of entry. Grant Lynch was grunting around all afternoon on Tuesday. It was his birthday, *and he had been given a dinner in honor thereof by his parents. He tad attacked the meal with much alacrity and more success and as a consequence was most con siderably “puffed out.” The Odd Fellows Lodge of Lamar has passed a resolution agreeing to keep paid up the dues of any of their members, who may enlist and go to war. This action was taken last Tues day night. At the same meeting Lee AY ebb and W. W. McKeever rode the lodge goat with great success. The Christian church was well filled last Monday evening to hear the Rev. Elmer Ward Cole deliver a sermon. Mr. Cole has a great repu tation and well pleased the audience which had assembled to hear him. A very pleasing feature of the service was a duett sung by Mrs. Hasty and Mrs. Gonld. Thomas Farmer came up from Gra nada on Wednesday to have a broken rib mended. Tom was walking the streets looking so unconcerned that every member of the Granada colony that met him, slapped him on the back, causing so much pain that he began to think it does not pay to have so many friends. The Lamar Commercial Club is having the furniture put in shape and being made ready for the occu pancy of the club members. The furniture is elegant, the floor covered with rugs, and the windows nicely shaded and draped. It will be a great institution for Lamar, and will add to the reputation Lamar already has of being a go-ahead town and ready with hospitality. There was a large congregation at each of the services nt the Methodist church last Sunday, there being no other service in town. Rev. Corey preached two splendid discourses. In the morning Miss Wilson sang a so prano solo, “The River of Life,” in a very pleasing manner. In the even ing the Christian Endeavor double quartette took charge of the music and did exceedingly well. On Monday L. Wirt Markham & Co. and the Prowers County Abstract Co. removed to their new offices in Huddleston building. They have fit ted up the two front rooms on the second floor in elegant sha)>e and it is safe to say that there are no better appointed offices in the Arkansas val ley. Fine furniture, carpets and bril liant lights, and nice, new, clean of lices make a combination hard to beat. J. K. Doughty, while still con nected with the abstract company, retains his law office in the old loca tion, and has also fitted up in a nice manner. A. J. Bromfield, secretary of the Industrial Building and Loan Asso ciation, which has a large number of members in Lamar, came down from Denver on Tuesday to inspect the town and the securities held by the company. It was Mr. Bromfield’s first visit to Lamar, and he was very much surprised by the evidences of thrift and prosperity which he be held. He was more than satisfied with the outlook and when he heard that Lamar was owned by Lamai people and that very little outside capital was invested here, he was the more favorably impressed. Schools. We received the following report last week too late for publication: The closing exercises of the Holly schools, which I heard yesterday (Friday) afternoon, were well attend ed by the patrons, showing an appre ciation by the patrons of the earnest work done by the teachers, Misses Sayer and Kester. The hearty support and manifest good will extended to the teachers could but insure a successful school and speak volumes for the commu nity. The pupils rendered their parts with childish avidity impossible ex cept where the environments of the school room are pleasant. The persistence with which the present board has clung to a cash basis is commendable. The provid ing of a more commodious school building will doubtless engage the attention of the people soon. David Baiixes. Building Proposals. Sealed bids for the erection of the new Odd Fellows’ hall at Granada will be received by the undersigned com mittee of Granada Lodge, I. O. O. F. up to noon of Tuesday, May 17,1898. Plans and specifications may be seen at J. L. Mayfield’s store in Granada. J. L. Mayfield, Frank Milaurx, W. A. Merrill. NUMBER 48. Arkansas Valley Notes. Another new town has been started in Otero county named King Center. Large additions are being made to the cattle herds of Baca county this spring. Mormon elders are holding revi val meetings in the western part of the valley. • • • Reports all along the valley indi cate that the cold spell did no dam age of any consequence to fruit. • • • The Rocky Ford canning factory is now making large contracts with the farmers there for this season's tomato crop. . • • The meeting of the Odd Fellows Anniversary Association at La Junta last Tuesday is reported to have been a grand and enjoyable occasion. • * . The Salvation Army colonists at Holly are well fitted out with farming implements, and all of them expect to try the melon business this season. • * • It is reported that Chief Hawkins is expected from his first trip to Klondike in a few days and one-half of Holly is ready to go back with him.—Holly Ghieftain. • • * Farmers at several points along the valley are making preparations to plant celery this jear, and the suc cess of this branch of market garden ing will be closely watched. • • • A Rocky Ford paper in giving the official directory of that city places the president, vice president and cab inet in the list. When did the Ford get to be the national capital ? • * • The Olney and Ordway melon as sociations are quarreling about which is entitled to a certain name. The work of the fool killer has evidently been overlooked in the valley. Candidates for the various offices to be voted for this fall at Garden City are announcing themselves in the papers already. The Kansas pol itician certainly does not allow the the grass to accumulate under his feet. »* • A number of alfalfa growers dub bed together this week and shipped 800 bushels of seed to the Chicago markets. This is probably the heav iest carload ever shipped from Syra cuse, and will bring the sellers about $2,400. —Syracuse News. . • • It is the intention of the Salvation Army colonists to break up all the 4000 acre tract, which they have con tracted for, this summer so it will be in good condition for farming next year, when other colonists will come and occupy it.—Holly Chieftain. * * • Clinton Jessup, the Carriso miner, has been iu town this week transact ing business with the county clerk. Mr. Jessup expressed his belief that the Carriso mines will come to the front this summer in away that will astonish the natives.—Springfield Herald. THE AVENGER ON THEIR TRACK. The name of Lauritz Wilhelm Keil appears on the list of volunteers who aie willing to spill their blood if nec essary in the war between Spain and the United States.—Hocky Ford He publican. If Keil batchers Spanish soldiers in as horrible style as ho does the English language, Weyler’s reputa tion will be eclipsed. Fruit Inspector Berry and depu ties have been quite busy inspecting the large amounts of nursery stock which have been shipped in for plant ing by farmers throughout the coun ty. Mr. Berry has done his work thoroughly, so much so as to dis please some of the eastern nursery men, all affected trees being destroy- I'd. The faithful work which Mr. Berry is doing will be of great value to our fruit growers .--Rocky Ford Enterprise.
