The Holly Champions went to Granada to play ball as scheduled last Sunday, but most of them would prefer not to have the score printed. The Holly Pick-ups went to Cool idge and played a game in which they came out losers but not in so great proportion. The score there stood 9 to 25 in favor of Coolidge. • • • Attorneys Hillyer and Merrill were down from Lamar yesterday conduct ing prosecution in the case of the people vs Wampler. The jury found the defendant guilty, as charged, of having unlawfully and without au thority interfered with a beadgate and division box in the Crowley lateral ditch and gave him the minimum penalty provided by law. This case was one of vast impoitance to every farmer living under the ditches through which more than one man must draw water for irrigation as it shows that the law is sufficient for the protection of water users and that it can and will be enforced. • • • Mr. W.

The Holly Champions came up last Sunday as advertised. The game started promptly, but the play ing was a surprise.

The repairs on some of them has been needed for hoiiio time and we are glad to see them in good shape again. The Susar Situation. The actual holdings of the Am erican Sugar Retiuing company in the beet sugar plants in Colorado is not definitely known and it is im possible at the present time to find out Havomyer’s agent spent several woeke in Colorado in February and Maroh last and made efforts to pur chase'factories already running, but had only partial success. His efforts produced a scare at first that the intention of the sugar combine was to buy and then close up all the Colorado plants. The annonffjement was then made that no such plan was contempla ted and that all the Havemeyers wanted was a small interest in each sugar plant, aud an agreement giving them the handling of the output. On this basis it is known an inter est was acquired in at least three fac tories. On the last visit of Mr. Pen noyer, who is acting as the Have rneyer agent in the west, he obtained about a third interest in the Fort Collins beet sugar factory, now building. Recently the Denver men who promoted the Greeley beet sugar fac tory concluded, after several attemps of the Uavemeyer people to get the factory, to give up an interest in their plant to the American Sugar company but what proportion the sugar com bine got cannot bo ascertained here. One influential stockholder of the company was quoted a:jfew days ago as saying the Havemeyers had the controlling interest but did not pos sess one half the stock. The Greeley company’s capital is $500,000 and it is to be increased to SOOO,OOO. It is admitted that all of the additional §IOO,OOO in new stock will be taken by the American Sugar Refining com pany. The Grand Junction factory, which opened for business on the beet crop of 1000, but was closed last year on account of financial difficulties, has recently been put on its feet by money secured in New York, it is be lieved from the Havemyers, and will be started again this year. The other beet sugar factories in Colorado, namely the Sugar City, Rocky Ford, Loveland and Eaton, now building, are still independent of the sugar combine. The prospects of the beet sugar crop in Colorado this year are ex cel lent. Contracts for acreage of from 5,000 to lO’OOO have been se . cured for all the plants except that at Grand Junction.

RELIABLE DREG STORE. Anxiety About Water. It is becoming evident that crops are to suffer this summer pecaase of a lack of irrigation water. Little raiu of any consequence has fallen during the mouth past, and the sea son for heavy rains is fast going by. Reports come in to us from all parts of the west indicating a scarcity of water and much anxiety on the part of the farmers.—Beet Sugar Grower. So far this season the eastern part of the Arkansas valley in Colorado has fared better than any other por tion of the west, and with even an average of rainfall from now on the harvest will be bountiful. Our rain fall, while not unusually heavy has been very timely. A heavy yield of wheat is already assured, and the threshing machines are being made ready for a long campaign. This crop promises to break all previous records for Browers county. All the other crops are looking line at the present time. Grasshopper Experiments The experiment station has receiv ed from the U. S. Department of Ag riculture at Washington a supply of grasshopper fungus (disease) which is being propagated and will be sent free, as far as the supply will permit, to those farmors in Colorado who re quest it, and who will promise to fol low directions for its introduction in to the fields and report the results to the experiment station.
