SoßSOßirrioM Katbb : OaeYear M •la Mentha ™ Three Montha fto Lamab, Oolobado, January 11, 1905 An Outrage. It is a most flagrant outrage that the trains on the railroad are al lowed to stand for hoars at a time covering the crossings of the streets , ■o that it impossible for people to get from one side of town to the other without crossing over the cars or orawling under, and the city au thorities ought to see that the mar shal enforces the city ordinances in this respect. It has become the custom for the school children who . live north of the track to adopt one < or the other methods of crossing or i else they wonld frequently be late for school, and it was due to this that the sad accident of Monday oc cured. It was fortunate indeed that it proved no more serious, and some thihg should be done before worse happens. Nearly All Change. It has been many years sinoe there was such a general turning over at the court house as occured yester day, Photographer Denning was on hand to take photographs of both sets of officials and they didn’t crack ths’glass either. In the clerks office, J. F. Curry and his deputy, A. E. Stream, gave up their jobs to Geo. D. Robinson and his deputy, J. W. Marker. Treasurer W. W. Reynolds turned bis offioe over to J. T. Adkins, but iH still in the list of officials as chair man of the new board of commis sioners. Sheriff F. M. Tate and Under Sheriff J. H. Friabio turned over their offioes to G. U. Thomas and Fred Lynoh respectively Judge C. W. Luck transferred his judicial ermine to Judge G. H. Thorne, but still retains his place as district clerk. Chairman J. K. Stevenson and W. F. MoPherson gave way as commis aioners to their successors T. J. Say ler and W. W. Reynolds. The faoea of Supt. J. A. Rose brough, Assessor F. U. Rosacrans and Deputy A. W. Hasty, Surveyor L. M. Markham and Coronor Fred Lee look just the same in one pic ture as the other. The retiring offiioials have done j aplendid work for the county and are deserving the praise and bent wishes of the citizens in whatever walks of ; life they may now enter. , The new men will also have the good will of all as they commence their offioial duties, and we believe will merit the confidence of the peo ple. Pleasant Valley Grange. Pleasant Valley Grange will meet at the home of Mr. A. Kern on Tues day afternoon Jan. 17th at 1 o'clock. After the regular Grange business the following subjects will be die cussed in an open meeting: The Benefits of the Beet Sugar Factory to Lamar.—W. H. Guy. The Benefits of the Beet Sugar Faotory to North Side.—W. H. Bios aer. Which is the most profitable to the average farmer to raise, Horses, Mules or Cattle? —Don Lamson. Does It Spoil a Good Farmer to Dabble in Politics?—J. K. Steven son. The Most Profitable Feed for Dairy Cows.—A. V. Erickson. Some of the Practical Ways Farm ers might Co-operate.—E. C. Gor don. Turn on The Light. Gov. Peabody will contest the eleotion of Gov. Adams before the General Assembly and we are fully convinced that the democrat frauds in the Denver vote will greatly over come the apparent majority upon which the office was given to Gov. Adams temporarily. But whatever may be the outcome in so far as the title to the gover norship is concerned, the public wel fare demands that the light shall be turned on the late Denver eleotion by ihe legislature. We want no governor with a taint ed title. If Alva Adams was really elected by an honest majority of even one vote he is entitled to hold the office for two years; if he was de feated by a majority of even one vote he must give plaoe to the man who was elected. In all of the precincts already in vestigated by the Supreme Court the percentage of democratic fraud actually proved runs far beyond any thing suspected by the republicans and if the average of forged ballots already established in the boxes ex amined should be maintained in the whole 99 under suspicion, the dem ocratio machine must have stolen more than 20,000 in this city. The General Assembly possesses the power to probe this knavery to the very bottom and the contest tiled by Gov. Peabody will afford that body an opportunity to discharge the duty incumbent upon it in this very important matter which so closely effects the good government of the entire state. —Denver Repub lican. A Divided Duty. There is complaint among the heirs of Philo 8. Bennett of Con- of whose estate the Hon. Wm. J. Bryan is administrator, that he is delinquent in the performance of his work. They insist that a sufficient time has elapsed since bis appointment for the estate to haye been wound up and a division of the property had. And they have gone into court to ask an order on Mr. Bryan directing him to administer upon the estate of Philo 8. Bennett and to distribute the assets. During the pendency of these pio coedings in court the statement was made that Mr. Bryan bad lately been duck shooting in the Southwest, aud was expected to reach Jeffersou City Monday to be present at the iuaugu ration of Gov. Folk. The attorney for the complaining heirs insisted that the partition of the estate should not be delayed for such reasons, and in timated rather broadly that Mr. Bryan is neglecting his duty. This, we take it, is an injustice to Mr. Bryan. The estate of the lute Mr. Bennett is not the only o <e upon which Mr. Bryan is called to admin ister. There is the Democratic party, hardly less dead than \lr. Bennett. Mr. Bryan is looked to by the mourning family to do some thing for them. To find au>- thing upon which to administer is Mr. Bryan’s perplexity iu that cine, but if anything could be found bis perplexity would be greater as to how it should be divided. The Ben nett heiis should give Mr Bryan u chance. He is probably doing the best he can uuder his sense of a di vided duty. —Globe Democrat. County Notes. [Prom the Holly Cliieftiau) Prof. 8. G.

To What Extent the Baxei Are Able to Understand One Another. Edward Bennett has some witty re flections In his "The Passing Hour*’ notes In the English Illustrated Maga zine. He says: "Solomon, the wisest of men," de clared woman to be an enigma- He appears to have studied the sex Is batches and to have struck an aver age. He had scarcely time to study the Individual. "3ut many an honest Darby wh » possessed -i heart has un derstood more than one Joan. If It Is possible to lay down a general prin ciple In such a matter, I should say that where men have failed to under stand women it was owing to want of hec:t. and that where women have not mderstood men it was due to wai. of Intelligence." * a matter of fact, It Is only in rare moments of self-abasement and devotion to another that anybody cares to admit he or she Is under stood. “ 'You don’t understand me one little bit’ Is often the last despair ing cry of a woman’s Injured pride to the man who Li revealing to her the fact that ne knows everything, even that this cry Is a patent Insin cerity.” The man who laments that a wom an cannot see how strong Is his devo tion, that she perverts and twists all his assurances Into something quite foreign to their original meaning, will admit some day that she understood him only too well, that his was a na ture which required opposition to stir It into activity, and what was mis taken In the business was that he himself was so easily comprehended. When a man says that the motives of a certain woman are unintelli gible to him the expl'tnatlon often is that she has wounded his pride by showing too plainly that she under stands him and acts accordingly. "In other words, her intelligence prompts her to act differently from /hat Is expected of the average woman Is similar circumstances, and this exhi bition of Intelligence Is labeled by ths man as Incomprehensible. It Is his nasty pride whieh Is at fault all ths time. And this applies just as much In the case of a woman as in that of a man. Men and women have been deliberately throwing uust in one an other’s eyes for centuries, and ths wonderful thing is that they under stand each other so well." Questions Raised by Armed Conflict. When men defend the principle of war between nations or peoples they are very apt to assert that questions now and then arise that can be settled only by the test of physical force. There may be such questions, but are they ever the most fundamental to so ciety and airs the most fundamental ever really settled by the sword? Clearly, the great trouble with war Is that even when It does settle some questions, such as political supremacy or political autonomy or territorial possession or control of trade routes, It almost Invariably raises up other questions quite as harassing, perhaps, as the ones originally the cause of war. —Springfield (Mass.) Republican. Bigamy Cause of Massacre. Bigamy committed by a native and a flogging for the same resulted in the massacre of eleven missionaries in New Guinea recently. A native, hav ing one wife, desired another, out one of the priests declined to grant him a divorce. The native then had his marriage with his old wife annulled according to Papuan rites and re turned to the station with the new one. The flogging followed, the "boy" threatened the missionaries and made Leap Year Episode. Fred —Miss Elderlelgh has proposed three times within the past six weeks, but I can’t make up my mind to accept hor. Joe —Has she got money. Fred —About $50,000, I understand. Joe —Well, you are taking desperate bhnnees, old man. Suppose she should ■top proposing? MORTON STRAIN, President J. W. PAXTON. Vic® Prea. L. F. ADAMS.

DAVIS Two Doors South of Union Hotel GIVES LESSONS IN CARVING. Young Woman Who Teaches Men an Invaluable ArL "There goes a woman," said the tall girl, according to the New York Press, "who Is preparing to confer a blessed boon upon suffering mankind. If she succeeds In her present plans every man and also every woman who Is In terested In household matters will be ready within a year to canonize her as a saint." "What is she going to do?" asked the nice young man. "She is going to establish a carving class for prospective bridegrooms. I saw one of her circulars yesterday. She has 500 of them ready for the market, so evidently she means busi ness. I also saw the list of possible patrons to whom she Is going to send them. It Is made up chiefly of young men who recently have entered or are about to enter the married state. She has a dozen pupils pledged already. "The instruction will be thorough. Each man will be required to wrestle Individually with all kinds of meats, from the Sunday morning ham to the Thanksgiving turkey, and not until he has learned to sever joints and slice uts gracefully will he be granted a • 'gree. Fifty cents a les son Is the .trice to be charged for this Invaluable Information. The ul timate cost will be regulated, of course, by the ingenuity of the pupil. ▲ man with a natural aptitude for carving will probably get through In six lessons. At that rate the educa tion is dirt cheap, and I intend to urge every man of my acquaintance to avail himself of the opportunity to master a difficult art.” The nice young man took a note book from his waistcoat pocket. "Who do you say the lady Is?" he asked, shyly. The tall girl laughed. "Well, for goodness sake," she said, "is that what alls you? I have noticed that you were acting queerly, but I didn’t know that that wbb the cause. Who Is she? When is It to be?" Richest American Soil. Something frequently happens that goes to prove the fertility of the soli <n the Salt River valley. It is nothing unusual to hear of cutting crops off one field In one season; grapes frequently bear two crops and so do figs. The latest, however. Is re ported by James Goodwin. He has ip his yard a tree that to the casual ob server Is only an ordinary pear tr«e. It was nothing more than this to Mr. Goodwin until this year. He had al ways noticed that It was of an early variety, and this season along In May a crop of pears was picked. A little later his Interest was aroused by notic ing the tree In full bloom again. What Is still more interesting Is that at the present time the tree has another fully matured crop of pears on it which are now ripening as well as did the first crop. Cured by Life in Open Air. J. D. Smith, ex-commodore of the New York Yacht club and a million aire resident of the eastern metropo lis. has effected a remarkable cure of what was believed to be fatal Illness. Early last spring Mr. Smith, who Is 7b years old, was taken 111 with a complication of gout and Bright’s dis ease. By the month of June he had lost flesh until he was a mere skele ton. Then he Insisted on being taken on board his yacht, on the deck of which he had a special hammock rigged. In this he lay all summer, day and night. About the middle of August he began to Improve and has continued to mend ever since. He Is now hearty once more and attributes his recovery entirely to life In the open air. Small Salary for High Office. It may be some comfort to laboring men to know that the salary of the poet laureate of England is $360 a year and a hogshead of wine thrown In. Of course, this represents only a fractional part of what Alfred Austin really earns; still it Is all that he gets for being poet laureate to the English speaking race. This salary is without any prospect f a raise, although It was increased to Its present munificent proportions when Lord Tennyson died Some time before his death It was do elded to Increase hls salary to that amount, but the government did not decide till after hls death. Thus the present poet laureate came In forth« raise Intended for Lord Tennyson. Citizen Shows Gratitude. Isidore Newman, a philanthropic citizen of New Orleans, marked the fiftieth anniversary of his arrival In this country from Germany, which fell on Nov. 16 by giving $50,000 for char itable. educational and religious poses In the Crescent City and other southern towns. Mission Agencies. The native agency In the missions of the American board has Increased In number during the last decads from 1,600 to S.SBI. VOLCANO A WEATHER PROPHET. Its Warning Known to the Ancients Many Centuries Ago. As a natural weather prophet, and Infallible at that, the volcano on the island of Vulcano, twelve miles north of Sicllly in the Medlteranean, is be lived to hold the record. The follow ing is from an account of a dinner given by the Geographical Council club of England in 1893: “CapL Wharton, the hydrographer to the admiralty, told how he had once an chored in very deep water on the east side of Vulcano, the southern most of the Llpari isles, but that he had kept up stream, with the intention of being off immediately if the wind changed to the east. He mentioned this to an Englishman who lived on the island and was in charge of some borax works. ‘But* said the man, 'there is not the remotest chance of the wind going round to the east without the full warning.’ ‘What warning?' asked the other. *Oh!' was the rejoinder, ‘the volcano always warns us.’ ‘The volcano!’ said Whar ton. 'Yes, the volcano: a fumarone” always emits a whistling sound before the east wind begins to blow.’ Shortly after this Wharton was looking at Strabo and, to his astonishment, found that that writer mentions the fact. The Englishman had never heard of Strabo in his life. Strabo died as an old man about A. D. 36, so that this excellent ‘furmarone’ must have been giving its warnings well-nigh 3,000 years at least.” Going and Coming. Just a few steps from the Union depot Is a small store owned by a dealer in live frogs and game fish. From this depot a large number of trains depart each day for the Wls coi ;in fishing grounds. The frog sel ler catches the Ike Waltons as they leave the city and again when they return empty-handed. At his jtore are two signs. One of them, most easily seen by departing fishermen, reads: : Live Frogs for Bait : The other is best seen when return ing to the city and reads: : Fine Game Fish for Un- : : lucky Anglers. : : : This man has sold thousands of frogs during the season to people go ing fishing, but he has made the greater part of his money from the sale of fish to those who have return ed empty-handed from the lakes and streams. —Chicago Inter Ocean. Patience. Let patience have her perfect work.— James 1, S. Lord, give this grace of Thine to me. That I mar live aright; However darlt the path may be. Let patience bring me light. When my heart falls me In the storm. And there Is none to save. Let this friend put her hand In mine. And patience make me brave. When strife and turmoil are around. And weak has grown my will. Let patience like an angel come And teach me to be still. Let quiet patience help my soul Beneath the scourge of wrong. And check my angry words of wrath. And turn them into song. Lord. I am very weak and frail. And am not good or great. Tet shall I worthier be if Thou Wilt give me grace to wait. And so I pray, whatever come Of trouble, pain or care. Bid patience my companion be Beside me everywhere —Marianne Farmlngham. Durability of Wood. Some interesting experiments have been made to ascertain which wood lasts the longest. It was found that birch and aspen decayed in three years, willow and chestnut in four years, maple and red beech in five years and elm and ash in seven years. Oak, Scottish fir and Weymouth pine decayed to the depth of half an inch In seven years; larch and juniper were uninjured at the end of the seven years. In situations so free from moisture that they may be prac tically called dry the durability of timber is unlimited. The roof of Westminster hall, London, is more than 450 years old. Distinguished Churchman’s Signature. At the suggestion of the archbishop of Canterbury Columbia university has established a visitors’ book for the autographs of distinguished visit ors at the university. He was the first to enroll his name on the book. His signature is ‘‘Randall Cantaur.” Coolies in South Africa. Chinese labor is said to be proving a great success in South Africa—for the mine owners and the coolie own era. Political Education.
