Classen, the genial Holly dis penser of exhiterating goods, was here last week for a day. He had been up to Denver and other points west, and was on his way home. Dan Keesoe drove down from Las Animas yesterday and had a dusty time of it. He expects to spend the rest of the week here, having some business af fairs to look after. Ira Hartzell, who was here last fall, employed by P. C. Oxman, arrived in Lamar last week and will probably spend the winter here. He may engage in the business of feeding lambs. Ed. Silver, who has been ‘blowing’ the base drum in the band, has dropped his hold on that instrument He has bought himself a beautiful slide trombone and expects to play it in the future. E. B. Summers, representing The American Harrow Company, of Milwau kee, was rounding up the debtors of the oompnny on Monday. There are not many delinquents around Lamar, how ever. John McKinley, who has been employ ed in Con well’s shop for some months, left Monday night for a trip to Denver, and will then go to his old home in Illi nois. He will return in about two weeks. J. II. Jay, of Las Animas, aged 82 years, and one of the first settlers of this valley died at his home last week. He was well known to all the old timers, and assisted in the organization of the first I. O. O. F. lodge in Colorado. The beet dump, near the railroad, is proving to be quite an attraction to new comers, and also to those of our citizens who have never seen it work. If you hnve not been there, it will be worth your while to go and watch the dump ing. Edward G. Walker has purchased the J. W. Glenn residence on Second street, and will move his family there in a short time. Mr. Glenn and family will move .next week to Colorado City. They will be much missed by their many friends in Lamar. P. S. Lynch, accompanied by a force of men, went down to Amity on Monday, to construct a beet dump at that point. Mr. Lynch constructed the beet dump at Lamar, and ns it works successfully, it is a sure bet that ho will do ns good a job at Amity. The leaves have nenrly all fallen from the trees and the bare branches remind us forceibly that the winter time is np proaching. The weather so far, how ever, has been the usual balmy article for which our part of Colorado is famous, at this time of the year. Attend the Republican Rally at the Opera House on Saturday Night, Nov. 2. All invited. E. C. Mitchell und family have moved into the Cooper residence in the south east corner of Lurnar. Mr. Mitchell came hero last week from lowa with his household goods and expects to make this his home. lie has a number of old acquaintances and friends here. There is to be a dance at the opera house next Friday evening. This dunce is managed by the young ladies, who will invite their escort uud will pay all the expenses. It is u compliment in re turn for the many dances given by the boys. There promises to be a large at tendance and a good time is anticipated. One of the prominent farmers living out the west road, was observed the other evening driving out of town sealed in his farm wagon. He had hitched on behind, n bran new double seated carri age, and his family will certainly enjoy riding in the vehicle. Colorado fnrinors do not hnve to ride forever in lumber wagons. Miss Mnry Brions, one of the teachers employed ut the school on the hill re signed her position last week, and has returned to her home in Denver. Miss Welpton wns engaged to fill the vacancy, and took charge of the room on Monday morning. The change of tenchers will not interfere with the regular progress of the school work. Gus Sun’s Minstrels delighted the audience which assembled at the opera house last Saturday night. This is by far, the best troupe of the kind, that has visited Lamar. The first part was lively and the singing was above the average- The specialties were also very good. The troupe can count on a full house, if it cornea this way aguin. Dr. L. F. Hoggs, of Granadn, who was charged by the railroud company with appropriating ico from its cars, without due authority, was exnmined last Satur day, before Justice Deeter, and the pre liminary resulted in the discharge of the defendant. His friends are much pleas ed at the result of the triul. Attorney Grnnby Hillyer conducted the defense. Rev. Eubanks, wty> has been in charge of the Buptist congregation since its or ganization, will leave here during the week, for Fowler, Colo., where he tins ac cepted a call. During his residence here, Mr. Eubank and wife have made a host of friends, who are reluctant to see them leave Lnmar. For a time, the church here will be without a regular pastor, but the vacancy will, in all probability, be soon filled. J. H. Jones, Leroy B. Cnrtter and T. Frank Dean, who ure respectively the democratic candidates in Bent county, for treasurer, county clerk and sheriff, were all liere lost Saturday evening. They had been in the eastern part of their county on an electioneering trip, and came here to spend the evening. They were well taken care of by some of our people, who tried to make it pleas ant for them. The electric lights, which have been placed around the town, nre prov ing a great snap for the boys. They congregate under them at night and have gre»t fun, indulging in their var ious games. Under one of the lights, there was a crowd of about forty boys the other night, and they made noise of plenty. The neighbors have not been heard from as yet, but probably do not object to the “kids” having a good time. Geo. Arnold, a sheriff from Missouri, was in Lamar Wednesday to get a pris oner whom Sheriff Tate hnd captured for him. The prisoner was Perry Martin wnnted by his bondsmen in Missouri where he hnd been indicted for the illeg al snle of liquor. The prisoner had worked several months here but recent ly left and was finally located by the sheriff’s force at Rocky Ford and Sheriff Tate went nfter him and brought him here the first of the week. Mrs. Icy Williams died at her home near Carlton on Sunday evening at five o’clock, after a severe siege of typhoid fever. The deceased was 28 years old and leaves n husband and five little chil dren to mourn her loss and miss a mother’s cnro. They have the sincere sympathy of the entire neighborhood. The funeral services were held nt the home on Tuesday morning and were conducted by Rev. Jeffers, of Granada. The remains were buried in the after noon in Riverside cemetery at Lamar. We hear considerable complaint, and especially comments made by new com ers, about the condition of Main street. So many teams are hitched nlong the street, that it is nlmost impossible to find room to drive up to the stores nnd load up with the goods bought. Besides that, the teams nre tied to tho awning posts, nnd as the posts were not intended for that purpose, several of them hnve boon pulled out. The streets should bo kept clenr, so that it will bo possible to drive up to the various stores. If tenms are to be left standing for several hours, they should bo put some where else, than along the Main street This is a matter which the town authorities can easily regulate. Attend the Republican Rally at the Opera House on Saturday Might, Nov. 2. All invited. Telephone Service.
