Stolnaker, of Vilas, was in La mar yesterday on business. Harry McDowell was smiling broadly Monday over the arrival of a big new boy at his home. Mrs. W. W. Cooper is in Denver visit ing with her father, Surveyor General C. C Goodale and family. Joe S. McClung, formerly a Prowers county commissioner, was a county seat visitor the first of the week. Mark Flinn went up west on a short trip one day last week and returned on number eight. Mark said he had been out rusticating. Raj Gould is holding the position of night operator at the telephone ex change and does his work in a most sat isfactory manner.

Mrs. Fannie Stubbs came up to the county seat Monday to take steps to ward settling up the estate of her hue band, the late L. G. Stubbs. John C. Martin proved up a fine home stead north of the river at the land office today. He expects to leave for Virginia in a few days where he will remain some time. Mrs. David Nowels returned from the east last Wednesday night, after quite an extended absence. She left her son, Aburn, who had been very ill, entirely convalescent. Notice was received here on Monday that a big blizzard was ooming, but up .to the present time it has made no ap pearance and we are enjoying our usual balmy weather. E. M. Whitaker, of Springfield, Baca county, passed through here the first of the week on his way to Kansas City, where his family is temporarily residing in order that the children may attend school. Last Thursday was “Happy New Year” day. The old time custom of making calls on that day seems to have gone out of style. At any rate there was no observance of the day in that .line in Lamar. Since January first, the telephone company has been giving all night as well as day service. This is a move much appreciated by the people and will doubtless result in many more telephones being put in use. Professor H. A. Long was moving around Lamar streets last Saturday, just as busy and as familiar as though he had not left here and was now a Kiowa county resident. His friends were all glad to see him. The band boys are improving very much in their playing. There instru ments are corded well, and they give ex pression to the music. Many compli ments were heard from those who listen ed to their street concert last Saturday. Me. and Mrs. L. F. Horton, of Las An imas, came down Monday and stayed over yesterday. They were the guests of Mnyor Strain. While here Mr. and Mrs. Horton completed a real estate transaction, whereby they conveyed to Prowers county parties six hundred acres of land about six miles west of town, and along the river. Granby Hillyer went to Denver Mon day night in to be at the opening of tho legislature. J. B. Traxler was already there. There will be a contest between the two and it is not certain which one will bo the one declared entitled to rep resent in the assembly. There is a lot of worthless stray dogs around town. They are no account to any one, and life seems miserable to them. They run the streets, get into fights', and are liable to cause runaways among teams. A few well directed shots would end the nuisance. The masonic lodge room in the new Maxmic Tornplo is nearly ready for oc cupancy. The masons have furnished the rooms in elegant style, and tho La mar lodge and chapter will have one o' the best, if not the best appointed lodge rooms in the state, Dedication cere monies will take place shortly. Owing to tho fact that some of tho heating pipes needed repairing, the big school house had to be kept closed ou Monday and Tuesday. So the teachers and pupils had two more days more of holiday. The other school, howevor, opened up on time last Monday morn ing. A delightful “impromptu” was held at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Sayler on new year’s night. Quite a number of the friends of the family just dropped in and there was enough to have a jolly time. Mrs. Sayler treated her guests to some delicious confections made by her self. The old board of county commission ers is in session this week and are finish ing up the year’s business. There is nothing out of the ordinary run of af fairs to attend to, however. Next Tues day, the new board will meet and organ ize, and the vnrious appointive offices will be filled. Oliver Blurton, who has been engaged in running the meat market of Mitchell & Blurton, disposed of his interest in the business to Mr. Mitchell, who will conduct the market in his own name. Mr. Blurton, who had an advantageous opening at Springfield, Missouri, left for that place last Friday morning, accom panied by his wife. The Schumann Quartette, tho 3rd number of the entertainment course ut the opera house Saturday night. The Schumann’s appear onthecourses in the eastern cities and only under the man agement of the Lyceum bureaus. It is an unusual treat that an entertainment of this quality should be secured at La mar. Season Tickets 3 numbers, 90 cts. Mr, Scrivers, representing Tho Out West Printing & Stationery Co., of Colo rado Springs, was here this week and was before the county commissioners with a proposal for the county printing and stationery for the next year. Mr. Scrivens secured the contract for his company. It is not strange, however, as the company has had the county con tract for several years and has given perfect satisfaction in ull respects. The Social Circle met at the Presby terian church Friday afternoon, Janu ary 2nd, a good number being present and three visitors. After devotionni ex ercises reports of secretary and treasur er were approved. The election of n vice-president followed. Mrs. J. W. Marker now fills that position. The so ciety adjourned, after planning for cot tage prayer meetings during the week of prayer, to meet January 16th. J. B. Dickinson, Secy. During the week of prayer, cottage prayer meetings under the auspices of the Social Circle of the Presbyterian church, will be held in different neigh borhoods. On Monday afternoon at Mrs. J. D. Martin’s; Teesday at Mrs. J. W. Marker’s; Wednesday at Mrs. Jesse Johnston’s; Thursday with Mrs. Anna Strain, at Mr. M. Strain’s; Friday at Mrs. W. P. James; Saturday at Mrs. John Mo Dowell’s. The hour is half-past three for all these meetinffs, and a cordial in vitation is extended to all. Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Morehouse enter tained a number of their friends last Friday night. Progressive high five formed the principal feature of the eyening’s program. A most dainty sup per was served, and every one seemed to have a desire to convince the hostess of the goodness of the “goodies.” The Miss es Morehouse assisted their mother in entertaining the guests, and together with their brothers, guve some most de lightful music, instrumental and vocal, The evening was passed so pleasantly that a late hour arrived before the com pany knew it, and then whith regret that they must end the pleasure, the guests left for their homes, all wishing that time did not fly so faBt. The Mask Ball. Great preparations are being made to make the Masquerade Ball to bo given the 16th of this month the society event of the season. The opera house will be decorated with festooning and the dan cers will be supplied with confetti and serpentine throwers which will udd ma terially to the merriment. 4 hot sup per will be furnished ut 11 o’clock and served on tho stage which will be pre pared for the occasion. The grand murch which is the feature of the evening will take place at nine o’clock sharp and no pains will be spar ed to make this a most brilliant and en tertaining event. From what wo hoar there will be a great number of costumes imported from professional costumers In Denver. The first of the year is a good time to square up your subscription with the newspaper and start out even with the now year. There are quite a number of our subscribers who are delinquent now from one year up and no better time could be found to make settlement. We hope they will all look at it in the same light. Music hath charms to soothe a savage no doubt; but the Schubert Symphony Club and Lady Quartette are not trav eling for the express purpose of sooth ing savages. Neither ore they trying to educate the people. They are entertain ing the public, and in a manner that is thoroughly enjoyable from first to last. Their program is full of novelty and ar tistic elegance, besides giving our read ers many opportunities to indulge in the world-famous American laugh If you want to be happy on the evening of Sun day, Jan. Ilth you can be by going to hear this company’s entertainment. The union prayer services at the Chris tian church this week are being conduct ed by the city pnstors, and attended by large ana appreciative audiences. Next week the pastor expects the additional assistance of Rev. Nelson of Rocky Ford. The primary objoct of theso meetings is not the good of any one church, but the moral and spiritual uplift of our city, the salvation of souls and the building up of the Kingdom of Christ in Lamur. If you are at all interested in such a work us this then we do most earnestly entreat of you th t you help us by your iniluenco, your presence and your pray era. Rout. W. Mooke, Pastor. With Shumann Quartette. Miss Elmu Hoggs Smith, the littleelo cutionist of rare ability who is tenting on the grounds, came before the crowd and gave the reading entitled, “Don’t You Know?” This met with apprecia tion equal to that which Miss Smith usuully finds in the hearts of her listen ers. Her famous “Baby Cry” has brought Miss Smith fame during this Chautauqua. The baby-crying act is something that few impersonators are capable of rendering. She has such complete control of her voice that she uses it as she wills. She is probably one of the most populnr impersonators in the state.—Twin City Chautauqua, Ur bana. 111. At the opera house Jan. 10. New Telephone Service. The Colorado Telephone Company took charge of the local telephone ser vice on New Year’s day and immediately established an all night service. All subscribers desiring to take the night trains can leave calls with Central who will ascertain the time of fche trams and cull them. The company has appropriated the sum of $13,000 for this exchange to re build the lines, place all city wires pos sible in the alleys and to put in large lead cnbles to insure the minimum of trouble; also for the purpose of extend ing their lines into the farming country adjacent to Lamar. In equipping those lines only the regular long distance tele phones will be used and its subscribers will thus have the additional priviledge of being able to communicute with all points of importance in the state. Experiments have proven that the cheap telephones which are used in many places about the country and which cost from three to four dollars each cannot bo relied on to furnish a guaranteed service, and The Colorado Telephone Company will not use thorn at all. The idea of the company in investing this large amount in Lamar ane vicinity is to be thoroughly in keeping with the town which is forging ahead rapidly and of course its citizens demand the best phone service. It is of course obvious that when a certain amount is placed in a good substantial line it will remain in the light of an investment, and in a growing, prosperous community like La mar will increase in value. The work of the local exchange will be in charge of J. A. Armstrong, a telephone man of high standing and long experi ence as an expert in the work.
