The Lamar Register
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.
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:

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.

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

deserve tbe name “Dry” this year.

Then and Now—Now and Then.
For Sale, at Public Auction, (no
honest bids refused), a splendid lot
omeux-x. iir-nrsrjLPEK ©xr ccxtitti-
of kicknacks, tbe same but slightly
used. Retirement from business the
owuer begs to say, necessitates his
action. Come and see the tine dis
play. There’s a line of Happy
Phrases, every one as good as now,
and some highly polished rhet’ric;
striking epigrams, a few; there’s a
crown of thorns, and with it goes a
shining cross of gold. (This lot will
not be broken —both together must
be sold.) A classified collection of
some Gold Bugs in a case, with the
Latin appellations under each in
proper place; a brick of Freest Sil
ver, gleaming, glist’ning in tbe sun;
and a deftly fashioned motto —Im-
mortelles — Sixteen to One; a sect ion
of Simplicity from Jefferson himself
and a dozen mounted specimens of
Predatory Pelf; sev’ral views of
Money Changers, awful objects to
behold (which by rights had best be
purchased with tbe crown, and cross
of gold.) Some evidence convincing
that Prosperity ne’er existed, and
Kansas City platform splinters, very
choice, are also listed, beside a vivid
portrait —just as true as it can be,
every line replete with genius—of
tbe Crime of ’73; some remnants —
ask to see them —of Imperialism
bold (just tbe thing for den or lib’ry)
and they simply must be sold. July
oth tbe sale is open, and friends will
please remember that there’ll be an
an auction daily until early iu No
vember. —Arthur H. Folwell in the
New York Sun.
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
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
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.
