VOLUME XIX. ALWAYS REMEMBER!!! That there is at least one business in Lamar where the quality of goods sold is the governing principle upon which every effort is based. We leave no stone unturned to supply you with the very highest grade of everything we handle, not one single department excepted. You have noticed how this institution has grown in the last two years and we positively believe our success is due to our unceasing efforts to give the highest quality it is possible to get. “QUALITY IS REMEMBERED LONG AFTER PRICE IS FORGOTTEN” THE UP-TO-DATE DRUG COMPANY The largest institution of its kind in the Arkansas valley. Postoffice Building, Lamar, Colo. Lamar's Fourth. The Fourth was one of the finest sommer days ever known iu this sec and a crowd of over 2000 peo pie came to Lamar to celebrate the day. The? began to come in wagon loads from early in the morning un til afternoon and most of them re mained until after the fireworks in the evening. The parade looked rather short at the start but gather ed fresh forces all the way along un til it made a very imposing proces sion. The Citizens Band furnished the music for the parade and the En tire day, and as is always the case were the most pleasing number on the program. Hon. 8. Harrison White of Pueb 10, delivered the oration of the day at the fair grounds, and made a very favorable impression on the audi ence. The game of base ball was not a remarkable exhibition of tbe national sport, exoept as regards the patience of the spectators. If the May Valley boys had played their usual game they would have won with ease, as it was tbe score was 15 to 13 in favor of Lamar, and the less said about it the better. 0 The pony race brought out a large number of entries and was a hot contest. Charley Hageiman won first money and Tom Hinote’a pony won the second. It is estimated that over 2,000 peo people took dinner on the fair grounds all and enjoyed this feature of the program in full. The following is a list of tbe af ternoon sports: Wheelbarrow race —Leonard San ford Ist. Sack Race —Will Bates Ist, Jack DeWitt 2nd. Three-Legged Race —Richard Rowels and partner Ist.

The program wound up in the evening with a fine display of fire works that was highly appreciated by a large crowd. Prosperity Lane The worst and most destructive bril storm we ever witnessed passed over our lane this Tuesday evening. Hailstones fully as large as goose eggs fell, doing immense damage wherever it went. Tbns our hope for fruit, and almost every kind of crops are blasted. We have not beard of tbe full extent of damage but are sure it is enough to satisfy tbe most fastidious. I. W. Dowler met with what might have been a serious accident last week. While making some repairs on his honse the ladder, on which he was standing, slipped and he fell, striking against tbe stone wall in dieting quite a bad bruise on bis right cheek and eye, putting it out of use for several days. , C<y Barnard went to Rocky Ford with tbe graduating class of tbe Dodd’B school last week. They re port a fine time and all were award ed their diplomas. Tom Dingee is helping his uncle, I, W. Dowler, put up bis alfalfa crop Mr. and Mrs. Lindsly’s son Her bert, got bis right arm broken by being thrown from a burrow, we un derstand the little fellow is getting along very well. Mrs. James Guy, of Granada, is visiting atMrs. James Brandenburg’s. There were several bead of cattle and a span of mules killed on Tues day evening by lightening. Some of our farmers were saving tbe first crop of alfalfa for seed, but are now very sor.y they did so. •We think our lane was most unan imously represented at tbe Lamar celebration on the 4th. Dry creek got on quite a tear last Tuesday and covered up consider able new cat bay and soaked things np in a geueral way. It does not deserve tbe name “Dry” this year.

Eight years ugo the democrats wore sullen and frowning toward Grover Cleveland. The whole land was undergoing hard times. He was accused of selling the country to the money power. The hard times seemed evidence of tbe wroug of the suspension of silver coinage and of villainy of borrowing gold in time of peace to hand over to the gold sharks. President Cleveland went out of office cursed by bis own party. Mr. Bryan is now getting a simi -1 ir dose, though Cleveland was curt el for calamity laid at bis door while his successor in the leadership is cursed because disaster did not ar rive as scheduled by his prophetic policies. Tbe democracy transferred its af factions to a new leader, William Jennings Bryan, who offered to save tbe couutry with popular policies. He told the people that, unless the measures ho proposed were carried out, worse conditions wore inevitable. But be was defeated and tbe ca laruities promised did not appeur in four years, but, on the contrary, the country prospered under opposite policies. However, Mr. Bryan ad bored to his prophecies and predict ed that, unless he was heeded, the next four years would bring the dis aster. Again tbe country prospered and now the democrats are vory sul leu and frowning toward him. Today the only democrat talked for th*‘ nomination, who arouses onthus ia-'tn, is Cleveland. It is remem bered that he was elected twice. He held the reins of power without sign of trepidation or weakness. He en forced the laws. He was scrupulous toward weaker nations. The mem ory of it all arouses enthusiasm and hope.—Denver Post. Roosevelt's Personality. The American people admire a strong man, an honest and sincere man, a man of independence and Hssertive individually, an engaging personality; and if with the latter quality there chances to be a mod erate admixture of tbe romantic and the picturesque, they don’t object to it. They rather like it. Through out the tenure of the presidency covering nearly three years, Mr. Roosevelt’s official acts and his atti tude on all the leading issues of the day that concern his high position have been as generally acceptable to the people at large as those of any of his predecessors of either party in recent years. Neither he nor his party has any apology to offer to the country for his record. He likes a fight, and nothing probably would suit him better than a democratic op ponent “worthy of his steel.”—New York Commercial. The prohibitionists have nominat ed a Swallow for president, hoping we presume, that tbe name will draw a large popular vote from their op ponents. It brings tidings of hope to a man with a great thirst. FOR TBADE -First-Class Stock Ranch, in Baca county. Well improved plenty of water and timber.
