Is there any statute of law prohibiting a donkey from bray ing during the dead hours of night when people want to sleep ? That is the question upon which our city dads would like to be enlightened. That the aforesaid braying is a nuis | ance has been practically demon* strated, but whether there is any provision of law for removing such nuisance is yet a mooted question.— [Even Milford has discovered that the populist party is a nuisance at last.] C.

The rural telephones were set in motion to get some trace of the hat, but no word came until later in tbe day when Mrs. Eaman, a neighbor two miles away, went out to see if the hogs were still in the country, when she found that the animals had been having fun with the strange thing that the wind had dropped among them. Carefally gathering up a small bunch of straw, a few bedrag gled feathers and soiled ribbons, she carefully deposited the remains in a bandbox and returned them to her neighbor.—Garden City Herald.— |lt seems that all creation loves Easter millinery except the mean man who has to pay for it.] Monday night an attempt was made to wreck No. 0, the midnight train.

No one need have any question concerning the course President Roosevelt is going to pursue in re gard to legislation to empower the interstate commerce commission or some similar body to regulate and when necessary make railroad rates. His position in relation to this sub ject is clearly correct, and he will have the cordial support of the great mass of the people in all his efforts to induce congress to enact the re quisite laws. The power contem plated is urgently needed in order that abuses and discriminations may be prevented. The railroad com panies will not make the requisite rates to insure fair opportunities of trade for different communities, and the only remedy the people possess OFFZCXAXi XTEIZrOFAFEXe ©»• XFXiOCOTTXT’X'TT LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. MAY 24, 1905. is an appeal to congress and the president. So far as President Roosevelt is concerned the appeal has not been made in vain. He recognizes the need of some authority to force the railroads to accept just rates, and he will present the matter clearly and forcibly to congress at its next ses sion. What that body will do is an open question which no one can an swer nntil a snfficient number of the members declare themselver to en able one to form an intelligent opin ion concerning the attitude of a ma jority. Tne railroad oompauies will probably, oppose all such legislation and they may be able to influence a large number of representatives and senators. Bat if tbe people declare themselves with emphasis, the in tloence of the railroads, however great it may be, will not prevail. It would be wise for the railroads to recognize the inevitable aud place themselves in line with public senti ment. If they think that legislation of the kind contemplated would be injurious to their interests, they should consider both President Roosevelt’s assurance that he will oppose auy attempt to do injustice to those corporations, aud also the possibility that much less drastic legislation might be secured if they established some basis of agreement with the people in regard to the cir cumstances under which the power to make rates should be exercised. — Denver Ropublican. To Whom it May Concern. May 12th, 1995. In view of the fact that the bill entitled “An Act requiring the Anal ysis of the Natural, Thermal, Radio active, and Mineral Waters of the State of Colorado,” presented to the last general assembly failed to pass and because of the urgent demand for an examination of the radio act ive minerals and springs of the State of Colorado, the Trustees of the Col orado School of Mines have author ized the undersigned to make the following preposition: All persons forwarding specimens of miuerals and samples ot natural waters, found in Colorado, to Prof. E. R. Wolcott, Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado, will re ceive a report as to their radio active properties free of charge, provided all transportation charges are pre paid and the locality from which the specimen or mineral water was taken is stated aa accurately as possible. The regular price such an analysis is $5.00, but for tne reasons stated above specimens found within this state will be examined free of charge nntil March Ist, 1900. The analysis will not be made un til the opening of the college year on September sth, hence reports should not be expected prior to that date. Mineral waters should not be for warded before that date as their radio-active properties are not perm anent. At least a quart of water is requir ed for analysis. Victob G. Anderson, Pres. Double Tracking the Santa Fe. It will be a colossal undertaking to double track the Santa Fe rail way from Chicago to California and tbe Gulf of Mexico, but that this is to be done has just been announced by President Ripley of that system, who has been on a vacation in Cali fornia. The plan of two tracks from the Great Lakes to the Pacific ocean does not necessarily imply that the tracks will be laid parallel. In many cases cut-offs will be used, thus sav ing iu mileage as well as train oper ation. Thomas Corrigan, a Pueblo rail road contractor, has a large force of men now engaged in doable track ing the Santa Fe’s line from Lynn to Hillside, N. M., a distance of about seventeen miles over the hilli eat country on the entire Santa Fe system. After this work is com pleted, which will probably consume from ninety to 120 days, the Santa Fe wsll then start double teacking the line from Raton, N. M., through La Jnnta and Pueblo, to Denver, which will complete what is known as the “half circle.” —Las Vegas Optic. Stock Crowers. The new Live Stock association in Denver is manifestly right in de Warburg THE FAIR S Queensware i Glassware Ghinaware Granite ware Copper ware termining to admit to membership in its organization none bat men who are engaged in the growing of live stock. They do this, not because they desire to be clannish, but be cause the growing of live stock is a sufficiently large and important bus iness to command au association of men engaged in that business. Railroad men aud others are inter ested in the business but not as pro duoers and their point of view is quite apt to be entirely antagonistic to the view held by the stockmen. There may be organizations with a broader purpose than that of the stockmen in which all may join, such as association for the develodment of all western interests, but the stockgrower is a large business man on his own hook and it is therefore quite natural that he should desire au organization of his own. —Colo- rado Springs Telegraph. Willie Hogg, who pitched for the New York team of the American league, Saturday last, is a son of Congressman Hogg of the Second congressional district. Young Hogg made his debut as a professional base ball pitcher at Pueblo, where his work was so good that he was drawn to Salt Lake City. From that city he was drafted to the American league, where he has es tablished his abiiity to hold his own io auy company. The Chicago team made but live hits off bis de livery on Saturday, and only ouce had a chance to score. The game ran to 12 innings to a draw, 0 to 0. —Ex. “Bully Good Time" For All.
