Liim son, one of the steadiest and most sub stantial farmers of the north side, left D. L. Silver’s store shout 10:30 o’clock, to drive home in his buggy. He had a spirited team whioh was evidently run ning when it reached the culvert near the Crawford ranch and the wheels on one side of the buggy missed the cul vert and threw Mr. Lameon out. It must have been about 11:30 when he was thrown out and it was an hour later when he was found by Al Mayhew atill lying in the road but conscious. His bead had struck the road very hard and h s spine struck the end of the culvert. Assistauce was called, but it was nearly 4 o'clock before they were able to get him home and he died about an hour later, aqd before any medical assist* ance could be secured. The funeral rervlces wen held on Monday afternoon and were largely attended. Mr. Lam son wos well known as a sober, indus trious man, a good farmer uud citiz-D, and his death will be deeply deplored by the community. Reaiatration. Yesterday was the first day of registra tion and the three precincts of Lamar made ihe following showing: No. 1 233 No. 4 376 No. 8 230 Total 839 Both Noe. 1 and 8 show a falling off. but No. 4 makes a large gHin. Obituary Harley A. Lamson, of the firm of Lamson Bros., ranchmen, was boro at lieetown, Wia., June 27, 1863, aod was, therefore 41 years of age at the time of his death, which occurred Oct. 16, 1904. He removed with hie parents to Kan sas when be was twenty-two years of age, coming to Colorado iu 1887, where he has since resided. He was a bard worker and his untiring industry was no small factor in making the Lamson ranch oue of the best in the Big Bend 1 reg on. From a bov he was particularly fond of horses and his capable management made horse-raiding a specialty on the ranch. The trajedy of hts death is doubly pathetic from the fact that a man so kind to horses and so successful in training them should at last have been their Vi tim. Another trait of bis character was h ■ fon ness for children His g n le, kind ly affection drew to him and won all children and youth with whom he came io contact. They liked him and clung to him instinctively and'he had a host of -riends among th• ro'.a- In politics he generally affiliated with the democratic party, but a abort time before his death bis broad sympathies induced the belief that the hope of tl • country and the race lay In the princi pies of socialism. Absolute social as well as political equality became his i leal. At the time of his death t>e was candidate for the office of county com missioner of this party. Physically he was a splendid type of man, large and robust, in keeping with the largeness of his nature. He had re mained unmarried, but leaves a mother with six brothers and two sisters to mouru bis loss. "His life wan gentle and the elements so mixed in him. That nature might stand up and say to all the world This was a man." Church Notes. Mrs. E. T. Lee entertained the Social Circle of the Presbyterian church. Oct. 14th.

Lord Dslhouele's name will always be Intimately associated with the famous Kohlnoor diamond, and the story of how he brought It from India to England has been retold in one of the new books. In 1849, after the second slkh war, Dalhousle confiscat ed the stone on account of the heavy debt owing the East India company by the Lahore state. Dalhousle sent it to Queen Victoria. Great care had to be exercised In carrying It across India. “The tassels of the armlet. In which the diamond was set," says the acoount, “had been cut off to dimin ish the bulk and Lady Dalhousle had inclosed the armlet with Its Jewel in a leather bag, this again being sewed Into a belt lined with chamois leather, which Dalhousle wore by night and day. Two dogs were chained to the governor general’s camp bed and no one but his wife and Capt. Ramsay were In the secret of the jewel’s con cealment.” Back From the Farm.

Some Old-Time Proverbs. There Is no doubt that much of what Is called success In life depends upon “getting well Into the groove” nnd keeping there. Some unlucky Englishman Is responsible for the saying, “If tny father had made me a hatter, men would have been born without heads,“ but this can scarcely be called original, as an unfortunate Arab, ages ago, declared “If I were to trade In winding sheets no one would die.” It Is to men of this stamp the French apply the proverb, “Falls on the baek and breaks his nose;” the Italians, “He would break his neck over n stew.” “Misfortunes seldom come singly” has many equivalents in nil languagts. The Spaniards say. “Welcome, misfortune, If thou comest alone,” and “Whither goest thou, mis fortune? To where there Is more?” Choirmaster for 59 Years Henry Long has been eholrmaatar of Bt.
