The invita tions, of which many were received in Lamar, disclosed the names of the following as hosts: W. M. Wiley, Gen'l Manager, Thoa. Berry, Act Chief Eng’r, I'hoe. Seward, Cashier, Jay Wiley, Snpt Tel. Dept. F. W. Montgomery, Supt. Irrig., Chan H. Pettit, Office, Lewis M. Gee, “ N. F. Videll, John Duncan, Engineer, w J. S. Titcomb, “ (’has. C. Crew, 44 Porter J. Preston, u Chan W. Beach, M L. M. Markham, “ So many tickets were sold to La ment* n for Holly on Saturday after ooon that Santa Fe train No. 2 had to carry a special coach for their ac commodation. Other points swelled the crowd so that sixty-five people alighted from the train at Holly. Greeted by the hosts and the Holly brass band, the crowd was escorted to the hospitable “white house” where extensive porches and shaded lawns make it an ideal place for snch an occasion. The first part of the program was a drive to Cooiidge and lunch at the Fred Harvey eating house at that place. The ease with which the crowd was provided with vehicles for drive revealed how thorough the prepara tions bad been for the entertainment of the guestn The pleasant after noon seemed specially provided for the occasion. After a delightful drive, sight seeing and an elegant lunch at Cooiidge the party re turned to Holly about sundown. At this time the Holly people began to join the visitors at the “white house” grounds to participate in tbe evening’s enjoyment. The grounds were splendidly lighted up end well provided with neats and hammocks. The “white house” itself was “wide open” to all. Elegant music from La Junta was provided for the dancing and a more enjoyable evening could not be imag ined. Age as well as beauty enjoyed itself to the utmost. Nothing that coaid add to the eujoyment of such an occasion was lacking, and no one seemed neglected. The hospitality and courtesy of the hosts will be long remembered by their appreciative visitors. The pleasures of the even ing were prolonged nntil the ap proach of train No. 5 compelled a regretful leave taking. Tbe following is a list of those who were in attendance from Lamar: L. Wirt Markham and wife, Thomas Hover and wife, C. C. Huddleston and wife, J. A. Waltraire and wife, C. C. Goodale and wife, W. C. Gonld and wife, M. Strain and wife, A. E. Bent and wife, J. W. Bent and wife, A. N. Parrish and wife, F. M. Friend and wife, W. A. Merrill and wife, Mrs. Bottomley, Mrs. F. E. Irwin, Mrs. Nell McClain, Mrs. W. W. Cooper, Mrs. G. B.

Lon McCread \, Ei nest Now els, D. E, Cooper, E. it. Black, C. R. Strain, Oscar Strain, Douglas Hen derson, Harry Gadeky, G. H. Dow ner, G. J. Garvin, O’Donnell and Janowitz. Too much praise cannot be given to Manager Wiley and his assistants for the spirit which prompts such a display of hospitality aud good will. The grumbler frequently misapplies tbe harmless legal maxim that, “cor porations have no souls,” but the management of the Great Plains Storage Company have in many ways shown a disposition to make life more pleasant to the inhabitants of the Arkansas valley, that should and no donbt will receive a full measure of appreciation. THE GLORIOUS FOURTH. Como to Lamar and Enjoy the Day— Croat Preparations bolno; Made for All to Enjoy the Event. In this year when patriotism is at a fever heat all over the country La mar with her customary enterprise is preparing to have an old fashioned celebration of the Fourth —one in which there will be unbounded op portunities from early dawn until late at night for the people both old and young to give vent to their en thusiasm. The citizens of the town have sub scribed liberally for the celebration, and the committees making prepara tions to entertain the crowd will not be hampered for lack of funds, so a grand good time can be expected all day long. A shaded place with seats and free lemonade will be furnished for all those who wish to bring their din ners with them and spend the day in town. There will be plenty of ac commodations for a big crowd and all the citizens of the county are invited to come here and join in the great celebration. The program for the day will con sist of the grand salute early in the morning, plenty of good music, pa triotic addresses, big street parade, horse races, ten mile bicycle road race, horse races, foot races, novelty races, general sports and in the ev ening a grand display of fireworks. Liberal cash prizes will be given to the winners of the various races, and the events are open to all the citizens of the county, and this should make them hotly contested and in teresting parts on the piogram. The fireworks in the evening will be the grandest and most elaborate display ever made in the valley, and this alone will be a treat well worth com ing to see. The managers expect to make the street parade one of the special fea tares of the day. It will be started promptly at 2:30 p. m., and promises to be imposing and unique. There will lie a grand ball at Gol laday’s opera house in the evening by tho manager, J. W. Uolladay. Good music hns been secured for the occasion, and a splendid time is promised for all who attend. Granada Items. J. E. Rosebrongh and family start for Greeley county to be absent about thirty days. Perry Kirk resigned his position at the coal shute and contemplates a visit to lowa. Lewis Myers, of Amityville, has gone to lowa to ship his steam thresh er to Colorado. Rev. French preached for the M. E. Church on Sunday evening to a good audionce.

L. Chaplin will make a short trip to Missouri, having received the sad news telling of the death of his mother. The first carload of foundation stone is on track for the May field-Mil burn block. The work of laying the walls will begin on Thurs day of this week.

Will Ludolph has returned from Kansas being unable to find employ ment in the harvest, fields. He says that hundreds of men have gone there and are unable to find work. Better stay in Colorado. Jennie. NUMBER 5. Arkansas Valley Notes. District coart was in session at Las Animas last week for one day. September 17 has been fixed upon as the date for Fruit Day. at Canon City. Syracuse has been enlived the past week or two by a good old-fashioned camp meeting. • * • Rocky Ford sent six and La Junta five of their boys this w*eek to join the ranks of the Philippine invaders. • • • The Otero county physicians have organized a medical association, pre sumably to regulate the health of the county. • • • The high market price of cattle is is said to be causing the organiza tion of bands of cattle thieves all over this section. We thought Lamar pretty warm the past week, but Olney claims the thermometer averaged from 102 to 105 daring the week. • • • It is hard to believe that a burglar exists so simple as to attempt to rob a newspaper office, but the Chieftain seems to think there is one such at Holly. • • . The Holly band is said to nave practiced every night last week and the weary citizens must be glad to hear it is going to Coolidge on the Fourth. • • • The financial standing of the val ley is getting to be the highest. Even small issues of country school district bonds are bringing par or a slight \ premium. • * • The organization of the. Arkansas valley sheep feeders* association has served to call attention to the enor mous proportions which the industry has assumed in the valley. • * • The Rocky Ford nine in a ball game at Pueblo with the Rovers, for mer state champions, made eight home runs in one inning. Good rec ord, if the Tribune tells the truth. • • . The first death of an Arkansas val ley soldier boy in this war was that of Ralph Worden, of Syracuse, at Chicakmauga Park recently. The body was brought home for burial last week. • • • General complaint is made along the valley about the multitude of tramps. They all claim to be going to the Kansas wheat fields to work, but the large majority of them get on west bound trains. The Democrat wants us to mention the fact thßt the salary of the Las Animas postoffice was raised from SIOOO to $llOO. Yes sir, we have. Now keep up the rate of gain two years and you will reach the point Lamar attained this year. Garden City lays claims to being the most patriotic town in the coun try, having answered the president’s call with thirty-two volunteers, prob ably the largest per cent furnished anywhere. The citizens are now pre paring for a big Dewey celebration on the Fourth. The Southern Colorado Cattle Growers’ Association met in Pueblo last Saturday. The attendance was large and the best of feeling prevailed for all the members are jubilant over the high prices that have been re ceived for range cattle during the past few months and on account of the prospect for a continuance of a stiff demand. Steps were taken to send men out to rid the range of wolves and the association will pay a good bounty on all hides killed in this dis trict. The draft of a new law provid ing for a round-up inspector was pre sented in the form of a resolution, and it was adopted and recommended for enactment into law. It would be a benefit to the public as well as the cattle men.— Pueblo Call.
