Breeders are Interested. No event in live stock circles has attracted so much atteDtiou in recent years as the horse breeding experi ment about to be inaugurated at Fort Collins under the direction of v the Bureau of Animal Industry. It is not ho much the experiment itself, *.B the fact tbat the government has at last adopted the policy of breed ing experiments. When the Bureau of Animal Industry was first organ ixed in the Department of Agricnl ture investigation of breeding mat ters was one of the prime obiects, but as the first work required was in relation to sanitary matters, gradual ly there has grown up the idea that t'uis was the sole end and aim of the bureau. Even Congress considered that in authorizing the appropria tion last winter for this experiment, they were inaugurating a new policy, aud there were plenty of statesmen who opposed the whole proposition. But the policy ha 9 been inaugurated aud it is safe to predict that within a few years this branch of animal in dustry will be the principal work of the department, and sanitary work will be a side issue. Horsemen interested in the exper iment about to be inaugurated and the plan decided upon to construct a model American carriage horse from Standard Bred trotting stock is meet ing with general approval. Mr. M. H. Tichenor, probably . the leading carriage horse dealer, trainer and breeder in thia country, has tendered to Prof. Carlyle the nse of bi 6 sls, 000 carriage stallion, which is ad mitted to be one of the finest horses of his type in the world. The com mission authorised to select the foundation stock for the experiment is be ng tendered the use of some of the finest and most valuable mares in the country, and there seems to 'be a general disposition among horse men to lend every assistance to the government in making the experi ment a success. All realise that it is the commencement of a new fam ily of horses that in the future may make this country famous. It also mepns that the time is not far dis tant when instead of importing mil lions of dollars’ worth of carriage ornciJLXi wEisrsr'APXiai or peotstees ccttntt LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 14, 1904. horses from Europe, this country will be exporting to the whole world. When this experiment is well un der way it is expected that an ex periment or two in cattle breeding will be started. This oountry has never yet produced a type of cattle aud it is believed that a type could be produoed that would much better fit natural conditions than the differ ent breeds imported.—Record Stock man. The pretty girl on the cover of The Designer for January will un doubtedly tempt more than one man to investigate the pages to which she acts as gate-keeper. Two article in this number have a decidedly West ern flavor: “ A Chinese New Year in California,” by Jessie Juliet Knox, aud “The Staudford University and Its Girls,” by Sarah Comstock, Stand ford, ’96. The unfortunate music lover who has had a Wagnerian af ternoon ruined for him by chatter iog neighbors, will heartily appro ciate “At the Matioee,” a monologue by Harvey Peake; and the observing man or woman, who has watched the wonderful contortions of which the human countenance is unconsciously oapable, will concur with Bertha Hasbrook, who writes on “The Mak ing of Faces,” in “The interest of Beauty.” “Our Winter Boarders — The Downy and Hairy Wookpeck ers, by Craig S. Thomas, is a charm ing bit of nature study, aud “A Din ner of Herbs,” by Temple Bailey, is a capital New Year story in which two widows, two bachelors and a bull-dog take prominent part. “Pleasant Sitting Rooms,” by Mary Kilsyth, shows how to combiue com fort and attractiveness in the living room. Id the faneywork line there are “Initiating Household Linen,” “Filet or Gitterfcyl Enbroidery,” “Hand made Sweaters,” and “Rib bon Decorations,” and in addition to the captivating midwinter fashions there are three pages of “Character Costumes,” suggestive of novel garb for fancy-dress occasions. Fort Lyon Canal Meeting. Although the attendance at the meeting of the stockholders in the Fort Lyon Canal Co. at Las Ani mas on Monday was very large the session was the most harmonious one for seyeral years, and proves that the old factional spirit has died oat and good sense, friendship aud business judgment are now in com mand. Over 85,000 shares were represented out of a total of 94,000. The old board of directors were reelected with the exception that President Messenger refused to again serve ou the board and Dr. J. 8. Hasty was elected a director in bis place. The board now is B. T. McClave, D. B. Nowels, J. 8. Hasty, D. Mclntosh and J. J. Cooper. The board met after the session and elected the following officers for the ensaing year: President B. T. Mo- Clave, vice-president D. B. Nowels, secretary Frank Kreybill, treasurer D. Mclntosh. The superintendent and attorney have not yet been chosen bat it is probable that the present incumbents Messrs. Burke and Lubers will jvmain. A committee of two each from Prowers and Bent counties and one from Otero, consisting of C. M. Lee D. B. Nowels, H. L. Lubers, W. A. Colt and E. H. Bradbury, was select ed to investigate thoroughly the queetious of reservoirs aud water supply and make a report to the di rectors of their findings. The reg ular assessment of 22} cents per share was voted. An important resolution was adopted regarding the development of the King reservoir instructing the board to either effect a compromise with the A V. 8. B. & L L. Co., or posh the suit to quiet title so the work of development could proceed. “Best Bargains in Colorado.” It is decidedly refreshing to read the predictions regarding the future of Colorado in particular, and the United Btates in general, made by Robert Warren, an English capital ist, who has just finished a six mouth’s tour of investigation of this couutry, aud whose conclusions are published on another page of this paper. Mr. Warren came here look ing for investments in railroad and industrial securities for himself aud associates. He has had business connections in the United Btates for twenty years, and knows it thorough ly. His plan is to bay prospects rather than present values; that is Remember the jjMBBt LITTLE DUTCH JEWELER with his newly selected stock of ELEGANT HOLIDAY GIFTS Well selected Presents in Jewelry and Novelties for Ladies and Gentlemen at* Myers Drug Store H. GERSTENLAUER to invest in securities which have promising futures. He is oontent to wait for years for dividends if there is reason to believe they will be sufficiently large when they do come. “Jnst at present,’’ he says, “specu lators for value will find the best bargains in the Union in Colorado.” The last two years have squeezed the water out of securities here, and there is nothing left but value.-*- Colorado Springs Gazette.
