Boiaoaimoß Hatb# : Oaa ** M Six » Tkraa Moatba w Lakab, Uoloiuo, OICIUBER 7, 1904 President Diaz has been iuaagaa rated aa Mexioo's president for tha ’steenth time. It is comfortable to hare a a easj job and the power to reeled /ourself at will. Thii government bj injunction is not so bad after 4 all. A Nebraaka jndge granted a man aa injunction to stop his wife from talking. The eherifT will earn his salary. Only three repnblioana succeeded in breaking.into the Arkansas legis. lature. One,was a preaoher and two achool teachers. That accounts for the big demooratio majority in Ar kansaw. Only the good and smart are republicans. The opening of a ballot box in Denver last Friday by the supreme oourt has hushed all the ohatter about the court having no excuse to interfere in the oouut. The box was so loaded with fraud that even the Rocky News has not yet recovered from the blow. There are indications that Tom Patterson is going to flop into the republican band wagon in a few days, making the fourth flop during the year. Three has been his reo ord for twelve months heretofore, but the signs are ominous that there will be a record breaking. The supreme court is continuing the good work of sending election theives to jail for long terms. The oourt consists of one democrat, one populist and one republican, but as its orders to jail the crooks have been made by unanimous vote each time, there is no chanoe for a charge of partisanship. FACTORY WORK BEGINS. Several Contracts Let for Construc tion Work on the Mow Factory and More to Follow Soon The Lamar sugar factory will soon bo an actual reality now, as Mr. W. J. Wayte, chief engineer for the American Beet Sugar Co., arrived in Lamar last week with a corps of eight engineers, and commenced work immediately on the prepara tion of the plans for the new factory. They have taken the company offices on the seoond floor of the State Bank block for the present and Mr. Winterhalter and office force are now located in the room just in front of the other offices. Work commenced the first of the week on boring the wells needed on the faotory site and the erection of the temporary buildings. A large number of from Pueblo, Denver and other points were in La mar on Saturday and Monday for the purpose of bidding on the con struction work on the foundations and various buildings needed at once. J. J. Cook of Denver secured the contract for the stone and brick work in the buildings whioh was let yesterday and a large force of men will be at work on the factory site in a few days. The last of the right of way deeds has been secured and the switch to the faotory site will be built at once and enable the delivery of material for the construction work of the faotory to be greatly facilitated. The early start on the work of constructing the factory makes as surauce that it will be completed and in good working condition in ample time for next season’s beet crop, and the citizens of Lamar and its tributary territory are rejoioing in this fact. “Watch our Smoke!” Prosperity Lane. George Wright is working at the carpenter trade at present, being in the employ of Mr. Southard. Ereie Cooper is also working for Mr. Southard. That snow storm last Saturday did some good inasmuch as it settled the dust, which was beginning to be very disagreeable. Mrs. O. B. Thoman returned last week from a pleasant visit to Illi nois. She also went to the World’s Fair. Mrs. Sim Davidson visited at the Cooper home one day last week. Clem Thoman is sporting a new top buggy. We wonder who will be the first fair one to have the pleas ure. Mr. and Mrs. Dowler entertained a number of friends and relatives at dinner on Thanksgiving day, Quite a number of friends from the north side gave Mrs. S. B. Whitlow a surprise last week, in honor of her birthday. They also made her a present of a fine set of dishes. Howard Koen is building a fine barn on his ranch. Mr. Bates is hauling the lumber for him. Quite a number of the young peo ple of the lane attended the box so cial at the Columbine school house, one night last week. Coy Barnard is employed at present with the Lamar Hardware Co., at Lamar. Mrs. Frank Corey and J. D. Mar tin and wife visited at Charley Wright's one day last week. Mr. Eli Dewey and family spent Thanksgiving at the Hoselton home in Lamar. Denny Gwartney and James Rhodes are working on the Bent dam. S. B. Whitlow is helping Mr. Ar mour run his wood saw. The beet crop of the lane is all in the silo, and all the farmers have to do is to haul them in. Ersie Cooper made a special trip to the north side last Sunday. We don’t know why he went, guess he does Grinning Isaac Hold Up. Lamar had a genuine metropolitan bold up last week. Two men, Joe Riley and Frank Caaaady were brought down from Pueblo by the Bullen Bridge com pany to work on the dam of the Lamar canal. It soon developed that free transportation was all they wanted- They were not looking for work at all. They saw a 1C year old boy, Roy Sen ter with a valise, waiting for a train to Cad doa, where his father and brothers live. They asked him for a knife to cut open a can of sardines. He followed them to the side track south of the Lamar Seed House, as soon as they reached a spot where they were hidden from observa tion, they proceeded to take from him his valise and a silver watch. The va Use contained a suit of clothes and some underwear. As soon as the boy recov ered from his fright, be sought the offi cers and told his troubles. The men were arrested in a north side saloon where they had been trying to pawn the watch. The watch mysteriously disap peared and neither watch nor valise have been found yet. The men were tried before Justice Feast on a charge of robbery and bound over to appear at the next term of dis trict court, and now languish in the oounty jail. They had not been in jail more than a half hour before they attempted and almost succeeded in a jail break. They are evidently desperate characters. Stockholders’ Meeting.

Colo., will be held at the bank ing room on Tuesday, January 10,1905, at 4 o’clock p. m., for the purpose of electing a board of directors for the en suing year ana the transaction of such other business as may properly come be fore it.

During the American Bar associa tion’s convention In St. Louis Presi dent James Hagerman talked one afternoon about trimmers. “The trimmer," he said, “would be all right, perhaps, did he not always trim too much. I have never seen a trimmer yet who did not remind me greatly of old John Thompson of Clalrmont “Thompson of Clalrmont, had trim med so excessively all his life long that he had never accomplished any thing. He had never dared to do a positive and downright deed. Finally he came to die, and the minister call ed on him. ’The minister and Thompson talked together a long time. At the end the minister said: “ ‘Now, John, do you renounce the devil and all his works?’ “ ‘Oh, sir,' said Thompson, weakly, lon’t ask me that I am going Into a strange country and I don’t want to make myself enemies.’" Open-Air School in Germany. The town of Charlottenburg, near Berlin, has an open-air school. Each child brings his own cup and helps to cook his dinner, peel the potatoes, etc., while a succession of classes are held on every conceivable subject. The school was attended during the summer by 119 children, who were al lowed a free railway journey daily. BIGGEST EVER The Christmas Stock of Goods Brouaht on bv MoLssn Broo. Is Unsurpssssd bv Any Ever Shown in Lamar A representative of the Register went in to interview N. N. McLean, today and found him still unpacking Holiday Goods although it seemed that all of the shelves, counters, show cases, and a good portion of the floor space was al ready covered with the beautiful dis play. Mr. McLean went east this year and spent some time in making a per sonal selection of the lateet and best goods to be found in the market, and also stopped at the World’s Fair and secured a large supply of the lateet novelties and souvenirs to be had at that great show. A look at the long raws and stacks of beautiful things on display in his store will satisfy anyone that bis time was well spent. His line of jewelry and noveltiee al ways large baa been greatly increased and many beautiful presents for all classes and ages are to be found here. In the line of boo .s be baa the most plentiful and beet selected supply that can be obtained anywhere. His new line of handsome gift books in all the latest biddings is especially attractive, aDd the old standard works and late popular novels can all be found at his place. In the line of china you can get anything you want, World’s Fair souve nirs of all kinds, Japanese, hand painted and hundreds of beautiful noveltiee. A large case of the beet perfumee in handsome bottles is one of the most at tractive featuree of the display, while everywhere is a profusion of beautiful medallions and statuary of all kinds. When it comes to toys there are such piles and rows of the most ingenious and wonderful inventions to amuse the children that one is almost bewildered in attempting to make a selection and wishes that he was able to buy the en tire stock, as the children will be de lighted with any—and it would not take so much money either if you will ex amine Mr. McLean’s price list. He is following his well , kuown custom of making the prices rea-onable to enable all to enjoy the glad holidav season. This enterprising Arm has always been one of the most popular ones with the holiday shoppers and the crowds that are flocking there already are evi dence that it is going to retaiq its old customers and gain new ones. Your Xmas shopping will not be complete un til you have visited this store. Church Notes.
