He accompanied John Leo nard, of El Dorado, Hannas, over the country in search of cattle. Mr. Leonard is in the market for all the cattle he can get. , [From the Amity Sentinel] A window in D, H. Coker’s con fectionery store was broken by the wind Wednesday. The string band now numbers ten pieces and are doing fine work. They play in meetings every Sunday, The roof on O. M. Pringle’s house was blown off by the wind last Wed nesday. No one was injured but his family had to take quarters with their neighbor. It will take consid arable work to replace the roof and make it solid again. The following figures show up well for Amity. The amount of beets that have been coming here this winter show that as a trade con ter, Amity has the best location of any town in the valley and should mako a busy place if given a chance to expand. The number of pounds of beets shipped from hero was 20, 858,842; from Holly, 4,288,080; from Granada, 14,071,410. What It Costs. Gov. Penbody is deeply concerned over the ont look in the Kansas-Col orady water controversy. He is backed by ull other state officials and all the irrigation interests of the state in advocacy of a large appro priation to defend the suit. A bill has boon introduced in the senate to appropriate $25,000 for this purpose, but his excellency is already satisfied that Colorado must pay probably $50,000. An estimate of probable costs has been prepared, based on the follow ing likely contingency: The United States supreme court will appoint a master in chancery, who will not be from Kansas or Col orado. Such men are expensive and this one will spend probably an en tire year taking testimony and in vestigating the case. His fees will be no less than SIO,OOO. Colorado must pay the expense of witnesses from the source of the Ar kansss to the Kansas line, including fees, mileage, etc. Included among those witnesses will have to be expert hydraulic en gineers, who will make practical tosts along the Arkansas preparatory to meeting every allegation in the complaint of Kansas claiming the water The stenographers’ bills will be I enormous—a year’s testimony— and then the printing bill will startle everybody. The supreme court has a rule requiring everything to be printed before reviewing it. It is ‘estimated that the fees of the master in chancery, the steno graphers’ and printing bills will ag gregate $25,000. This leaves to be paid, witness fees, per diems, mile age, etc. Further, the lawyers who will do the brain work in offices re • juire large fees, and one or two "hostlers” for evidence must be had. The latter will have to be men who can seek out witnesses and know ev idence when they see it. Fifty thousand dollars will hardly suffice, but for the present no more j will be asked. Gov. Peabody is determined to ; win this suit. To lose it will prove j a terrible blow to Coloiado interests. All the state is vitally interested and it is believed the legislature will not hesitate to appropriate all that is | needed. j If all the Coloradoans called into the case should be as conservative on expense accounts as Former Judge j Luther M. Goddard, the case would not cost as much as estimated. As attorney, on a trip to Washington, Mr. Goddard’s expense account was only S7O. One man’s visit to the charities and correction convention has cost the state well up in the hundreds. This suit and other matters of im portance will preclude a legislative adjournment within thirty days, as has been proposed. Besides prepar ing for the suit, the legislature can not possibly get through by March 1. It is a physical impossibility to print, engross and handle the bills now before the body within thirty days. The mechanical process through which measures now pend ing must pass under the law gover niug such, requires more thbn thirty days even if no more bills are intro | duoed.—Post What Do You Want in a Drug Store? - Here is a Bplendiclly equipped and care PRESCRIPTIONS -o, fully conducted Prescription Depart- y — M menfc r\ f\ || f Here are all the recognized Remedies -Ui if ihlhU-' ([ in their best and most ellicucious forms. 1 Here are Toilet Articles of all desorip- STANDARD J ion 8» for ull P ur P° BoB of health and pi f 7 iiHn Jfu We recommend and guarantee our MOSS ROSE CREAM ~f to b 0 tlie finest preparation on the market for chapped hands and face. roil-Ei ; U We cheerfully refund your money if is not entirely satisfactory.

CHURCH BROS. Irrigation Districts. The irrigation district law may re quire a few changes to make it all that may be desired, but it has laid the foundation for the most practic able construction of irrigation works that our people can adopt. It provides for a system of im provornents similar to those in an improvement district of a city whexe pavements haye to be laid or grad ing and curbing done. By organizing districts of this kind, modified to suit local condi tions in each case, the people of every Colorndo valley can construct whatever reservoirs, ditches and ca nals may bo within the reach of pri vate capital. It would seem that any great work could be undertaken under this law provided its cost, as sessed against each acre irrigated, should not be prohibitive. To perfect such organizations it may be necessary in some localities to subject land belonging to the fed eral government to its proportionate share of the expense. Such land is not now subject to taxation, and hence until it passes into private ownership it cannot be made to boar its share of the burdens. A bill to correct this was introduced at the first session of the present congress by subjecting federal laud embraced within an irrigation district to its share of the cost of improvements, but it has not yet been acted upon. With federal and also state land subject to taxation for irrigation im provements, there is probably no dis trict in the state which could not carry out a complete system of res ervoir construction and ditch im provement. —Denver Republican, Lamar on Route. Thnt railroad story /rom Oklaho ma is still somewhat indefinite as to distance, but sufficiently exact in the assertion that it is to be built from Enid “toward Denver,” the statement 8 Pages NUMBER 34. to that effect being repeated toduy. It is likely to stretch out a hundred miles or so in this direction during the present year. Pueblo ought to see about this; it is an excellent proposition if the road were built up the Arkansas valley to the Colorado cities and thon eastward to the Miss issippi river. We certainly ought to inquire into it, at least —Pueblo Chieftain. Work has already boon commenc ed on the Frisco Route’s extention toward Colorado, and whether it builds toward Denver or toward Pu eblo mnkes yery little difference to our people as Lamar is on the route either way. It is most likely that Denver is the objective point and that it will tap the Arkansas valley at this point as Prowers county ia recognized as the richest section of the valley. A Quiet Place. A nervoiiH looking ronn went into a store the other day aud sat down for half an hour or ho, when a clerk a»ked if there waH anything she could do for him. He said no, he didn’t want anything. She went away, and he sat half an hour long er, when the proprietor went to him and aHked jf he wanted to bo shown anything. “No,” said the nervous man, “I just want to wit aronnd. My physician has recommended perfect quiet for me, and says above all things I should avoid being in crowds. Noticing that yon did not advertise in the newspaper, I thought that this would be as quiet a place as I could iind, so I just dropped in for a few hours of isolation.” The merchant picked up a bolt of paper cambric to brain him, but the man wont out. He said he wanted was a quiet life.—Kx. One Minute Cough Cure F or Coughs, CokU and Croup.
