Last Saturday night wiih an ini portant one to Prowers connty Odd Fellows. On that occusion Prowers encampment No. 48, I. O O. F. of the state of Colorado was organized at Lamar. The instituting oflicer was Dr. J.*M. Norman, of Denver,tho graud secretary of the grand lodge, and giand scribe of the grand en oampment of the state of Colorado. Those who took the encampment degrees and became members of this new lodge were: C. W. Heaton, C. S. Anderson, M. D. Purmentor, J. P. Saylor, Judd Downing, S. Huffman, F. M. Friend, John Cook, liev.Moore, George T. Feast, J. T. Lawless, of Lamar lodge; \V. A. Merrill, M. J. McMillin, J. L. Mayfield, J. A. Rose brough and YV. E. Carson, of Grana da lodge; VVm. McPherson of Holly lodge and Chas. Luck, YVm. Kidder, J. Harnden and Loo Webb of Lamar lodge were duly elected members, but were not on hand to receive tho degrees and participate in tho or ganization. Upon the institution of tho en campment the following wore elect ed and installed aH tho first officers of the same: M. D. Pormenter, C. P.; J. T. Lawless, S. W.; C. S. An derson, J. W.; J. A. Downing, Tress urer and C. W. Heaton, scribe. Ap pointment of the appointive officers was defered until tho next meeting. Saturday night, July 19, was chosen as the next meeting night, when the organization of the new encampment will be completed. An encampment is a higher order of odd fellowship. Its degrees ap peal more to the intellectual and moral faculties of man than any oth er secret work known at tho present day. The Independent Oidor of Odd Fellows has now become the most numerous as well as the most inllu ential of secret organizations. According to the latest official re cords in America, there are 1,027,048 Odd Fellows; 908,001 Freemasons; 042,597 Woodmen of America; 510,- 947 Knights of Pythias; 425,000 An cient Order United Workman; 100,- 109 Improved Order of Red Men. These are the six largest societies. In addition to tho aboye the in dependent order has lodges all over the civilized world. If wo add to its numbers the Manchester Unity of England, odd fellowship far outnum bers any other secret fraternal order on the globe. It is an important event therein to have a higher branch of this order established in Lamar. It shows that the order is growing rapidly in Prow era county and the impetus given by thin now encampment will nccollorato such growth. Wo can not doubt that Prowers Encampment No. 48,1. O. O. F. of Lamar, Colorado has a groat future before it. O. F. Monument Pioneer Called to Rest. Monument, Colo , July 1). - Colorado has lout another pioneer iu tho death of Mrs. Henrietta E. Ford, wbopasH ed away at her home iu Monument this morning ut 7 o’clock. Mrs. Ford came to Colorado in 18(H) from Maine. She livod iu Den ver and other parts of tho stato bo fore coming to Monument, where she resided the past thirty yeara. She built the Monument hotel and man aged it profitably, while her huabaud Col. F. It. Ford was engaged iu min ing. She leavea a aon in Denver, C. D. Ford, register of tho United States laud ollice. In those eurly day a when tho ludiaua were still in tho west, Mrs. Ford took up a claim west of Monumont, just at the foot of tho Rockies. She and her family made four trips across tho country to and from Muino, traveling part of tho way by wagons, as tho railroada had not built west of tho Missouri river. The funeral will take place here to morrow, but the remains will bo taken to Denver and laid to rest by her husdand. —Denver News. Mrs. Ford was tho grandmother of Mrs. Addio llovor, of Lamar, and the many friends of tho family iu this vicinity will unite iu extending their sympathy to them in their great loss. He Will Change His Mind Mr. Clias. Boettcher of the Love land sugar factory, and president of tho National Bank of Commerce, was reported by a Denver paper laat week as Buying that the outlook for fact ory building was not reassuring and that his company would not build any now plants, and thut ho does not think any other company will attempt building under present con ditions. Wo cunuot challenge his statements aH far as his own company is concerned, but wo predict that with in a year he will be planning new pro motions nnd will be as optimistic as last season. So far ns others aro con corned we fully oxpect that the next two years will witness the expansion of tho beet sugar industry to an ex tent never before attained. We do not regard tho tariff as a serious fac tor in tho situation. With a crop which undor ordinary conditions is expected to yield from 50 to 100 per cent moro than 1001 nnd which oven undor market conditions morejunfav orable than evor beforo will yield a liberal profit, wo boo no reason for pessimistic prophesies. Tho lull in fuctory promotion is but seasonable and with the advent of beet harvest ing wo may confidently expect a re vival of efforts in behalf of new fac tories. Tho beet industry of Europe has reached an acroago of from sevon to ton millions per year. This country with a larger market, richer soil and better facilities, has only reached an ncreage of about 250,000. Gontlemen who predict the cessation of factory building and therefore beet growing must have a torpid liver. On the con trary the industry has not fairly be gun to grow. We in Colorado will have fifty or a hundred factories with in a few years. If Europe can oper ate fourteen hundred 'factories, why should America reach her limit with fifty. Mr. Boettcher will chauge his mind.—Sugar Boot Grower. Pumps for Irrigation. The problem or raising water from wells nn<l beds of streams is hardly less important in the west than the government irrigation enterprise. This is true especially in the south west, whore no system of flowing water is possible, and in the broad prairie of eastern Colorado and west ern Kansas. The Agricultural col lego of New Mexico is now making systematic experiments with pumps 8 Pages NUMBER 5.

Professor Loster, in anawor to in quiries about it, writoa that only two of tho pumps on hia liat havo boon teated thua far, but “the roaulta of this investigation aro evidently go iug to be of much value, ua it haa already been sufficiently shown that there aro groat poasibilitioa in irri gating from wells} by thoao pumpa. Wo havo only one aix-inch driven well from which tho smaller pumpa already toatod will throw a steady and continoua stream of from 300 to 700 gallons a minute.” Chief Agriculturist Winterhalter came up from Lamar this morning and roporta a good rain in tho lower end of tho valley yesterday. Tho late rainfall up in tho hills puts all tho ditches drawing water frooly now. Mr. Winterhalter says tho reported shortage of tho boot crop is not war ranted by tho facta. Both tho acro ago and tho stand of boots at this date compare very, favorably with tho conditions at this date last year, and unless July and August develops somo untoward conditions not now foreseen there is ovory reason to ox pect at least as good a crop of boots as last year. - Rocky Ford Enterprise.
