VOLUME XX. County Notes. TFrom the Holly Chieftain | The iaterior of the new Methodist church is being finished. This bnild ing will be aßed foi the high school until the new high school is finished. .*• County Treasurer, J no. T. Adkins came down from Lamar Wednesday afternoon, made a general visit among his friends and attended the meeting of the Oddfellows lodge. • • • J. O. Moss, of La Rose, Illinois, came out last week to look after his land, a half section two miles north of the sugar faotory, whioh is ten anted by L. M. C. Brown. He found eighty acres of fine broom corn be sides other crops on his farm and consequently was well pleased with the conditions —except the water for domestic purposes. He 'found Mr. Brown hauling water nearly a mile and made up his mind that water could be had near home. He got a twig from a peach tree and after do ing a little “witching” located a vein within a hundred feet of Mr. Brown’s house. Au eight inch hand auger was secured and after about six hours work water was struck at a depth of twenty-three feet, good soft water and an inexhaustable supply. Mr. Brown is looking for a good swift kicker to operate on him for hauling water the past two years when he had plenty of it right under his home. Mr. Moss returned home Tuesday. (From thoUranada Time*.] County Commissioner T. J. Sayler was here, yesterday, on business. • • • John Mock has a fine stand of eot ton but is probably too late to yield well this year, He intends to plant earlier next year, when a good yield is certain. • • • A. N. Parrish and son, of Lamar, Dr. J. C. Parrish, of Vandalia, Mis souri, and their uncle, Col. A. N. Pritchard, of Mauuington, West Vir ginia, were here, yesterday, looking over our town and visiting friends. • * * As announced last week, the stock of The Granada Mercantile Co. was sold to Culver & Boggs. This is one of the most important sales in Gra nada in years. All parties are too well known to need further state ment by us. The new owners an nounce a clearing out of the present stock at cost, after which they will put in a SIO,OOO stock of uew goods. . * • Edwin Dilthey, with his troupe, the musical Colebonrns,” bad so much trouble in getting here last Thursday, that the advertised enter tainment was postponed. After leaving Lamar in their conveyance, they found Clay creek too high to be forded. They attempted to ford the Arkansas river north of the Clay creek sohool house, and, when in mid-stream, a tug broke The team refused to pull after that and Mr. Dilthey had to make a two-mile trip after a team, leaving the troupe in the wagon in the middle of the stream for two hours. They finally arrived here, but were too tired to fill their engagement. They expect to be back in a few weeks when our people will have a chance to attend their well spoken of entertainment. One Is Born Every Minute. It 1b amazing, simply amazing, how many people there are in this day of newspapers and public schools who fall victims to swindlers of the crudest and most familiar type. Clairvoyants and “psychics,” read ers of bumps and readers of palms, “professors” of this and “doctors” of that charm the agile dollar out of the pockets of the people who would be too suspicious to risk their money in any legitimate enterprise. These people, it must be assumed, are of average intelligence. They have been to school and no doubt they read the newspapers, for most every body does nowadays. But let some fakir distribute hand hills telling how he “tears away the veil that hides the unseen world, reveals Becrets, reads the past, present and future,” etc., and at once he finds plenty of gullible victims ready to ex change their hard-earned money for his wonderful knowledge.

Gray, who disappeared the other day with S2O which belonged to one who had faith, but alas! who is now gravely suspicious of the “Professor’s” good intentions. This person consulted the “Professor” in regard to a goitre on her neck. He told her be could cure it by the following method: The patient was to give him a twen ty-dollar gold piece, which he was to bury in the ground for five days. He would then dig it up and the patient was to wear it around her neck “until cure was brought about.” For this simple but wonderful treat ment the “Professor” charged SO, and incidentally he was careful to take the double eagle. The “Pro fessor” and the double eagle have flown, but the goitre remains. Moral: What’s the use of ex plaining? If a man is cut out by nature to buy gold bricks he will buy them in spite of all his friends can do to prevent.—Ex. Court News. At the adjourned session of the district court last Monday consider able important business was dispos ed of. The J. P. Cattle oompany receivership case consumed the en tire day and all of the claims but three were allowed, these still re maining unsettled. Former Gov. James H. Peabody, of Canon City, Colorado, was here to present a claim of the First National bank of whioh he is president. He was on the witness stand about ten minutes and made what the attorneys pronounc ed a good witness. The governor wore a red carnation on the lapel of his coat which was the badge of the Peabody crowd at Denver last winter. Judge C. E. Waldo of Canon City, and George Getty of this city were Mr. Peabody’s attorneys.—Syracuse Journal. Lrnd Sold Well. E. C. Wilson of the Richfield Mon itor, writing of the recent sale of tax title land in Morton county says: “The sale is by far the greatest snocess ever attained by any county in the state at any one time. We might go into the history and details, but there is no uae what eyer as all eyes were turned this way to see the result. Our people here have shown that they desire to do the right thing at all times and have been pa tient with property holders for years and have given them opportunities to pay their tax.

Looking at these facts it would seem that no one •honld now complain and still look at the transaction with a frown. “8. B. Farwell of Osborne connty, F.

They have faith in the future prospects from the manner in which they made their investment#.” Value of Sugar Beet Growing. It has been estimated that the farmers in the oountry about Gree ley have planted 18,000 acres of of sngar beets, from which they they expect to gather 200,000 tons of beets, worth in the aggregate sl,- 000,000. Although the estimated yield per acre seems to be smaller than one would look for in the vicinity of Greeley, it is a notable fact that a crop of such recent introduction should be worth to the farmers of one section of the state so large a sum as a million dollars. Undoubt edly the area devoted to beets conld be greatly enlarged, thus adding to the revenues of the community. Sugar beet growing belongs to the class of what is called intensive farming, admitting of tbe cultivation of bat a small area by each farmer, and thus opening the way for the maintenance of a large population. It is by this means that the irrigated area of the state may be pnt to tbe highest and must profitable use, not exclusively m tbe production of beets but in the cultivation of that and other crops which require dose at tention. It should be considered that it is bat a little over five years since the production of beet sugar was begun in a practical way in this state. Tbe industry is comparatively new to Colorado agriculture, and yet it has made such rapid progress that it has become in some locacities the chief factor of prosperity. Other factories will be erected n addition to those now in operation or under construction, and thus now beet producing communities will be developed. The importance of tbe industry to Coftrado and its close relation to tbe continued prosperity of the state will thus be more and more demonstrated. —Denver Repub lican. A Deserted Bride. This is the *ecoud season of that powerful melodramatie success, en titled “A Deserted Bride ” So far it has repeated its last season’s bus iness, crowding tbe theatres to their utmost capacity. Snrely there must be a leason for such large audiences. The secret of its great success lies iu the fact that both the author aud manager have put forth theii best efforts to please aud supply the demands of alnelodrama-loviug pub lic. The box office returns show the wisdom of their judgment. This is a pure American play de picting love and pathos, hate and passion, a play that troubles the heart. There is one way, and only way, to appreciate this grout play, and tbat is to hoo it. For neurly three boars intense dramatic scenes and many laugh provoking compli cations follow each other in rapid succession. An unequalled company of artists bas been engaged, each one for his or her special character, and a wealth of beautiful scenery, startling mechanical effects and mys terious electrical devices, has been provided. “A Deserted Bride” will be seen at the opera boose one night Sept. 20. No Cloud on the Horizon. Jobu D. Rockefeller denies that lie made the statement that has been attributed tu him in regard »o tbe financial world being in danger of a panic iu lWt)7. The judgment of Mr. Rockefeller ia more bouored iu the denial than in the credited state ment. There is nothing iu the fi- UHUcial outlook of today to warrant a fear of hard times. Former depressions have followed eras of wild speculation. Under the excitement of speculation tbe people aie carried beyoud the bounds of safe business aud become so involved with debts tbat when a stringency in money came investments and securi ties bypothicati'd for loan < to permit further speculations are wiped out and a general bankruptcy of all en giged results There :s io sign of such a condi tion iu tbe market a to-day. In fact, I he reverse is true. The banka and trust companies of the country nro full of money and borrowers for speculating are few No great gambling movement is on. The one iu 1900 aud 1901 passed and witb it apparently- tbe panic danger period. After it there were a few important failurea, but comparatively few. AI though thousands lost heavily in the New York stock*, the losses were lit tle more than the gaics that had been made in the same movement, and the financial world settled hack after it to much the same condition it was in before. There are indica tions that leaders in the New York market nre trying to stait another such speculative movement, hilt the pnhlic does not respond Tbe peo ple have been bearing of late too much about dishonesty iu high places graft and abuse of confidences, to be readily drawn into such another dizzy maelstrom of finances as they plunged into a few years ago and which cMue near to being their un doing. Another reason why good times should continue for several years be yond 1907 at least, is the prosperity all are enjoy mg from the unparallel ed yields of the farms and the mines This year yvill be a banner oue in all lines. There is no part of the coun try tbat is escaping good harvests. For three years times have been un interruptedly good. The farmers have paid off their mortgages and can weather for years auy adverse fate. The mines are making mil lions more than they ever did and making them without laying up trouble for the future. There is practically no speculation left in them. They are on as sound a bus iness basis ns farming or manufact uring and nothing can be couceived that would allow them to contribute to a panic Tbe people of tbe nation are doing business on their own capital to a larger extent than ever before, aod the man wno is out of debt, has paid for what he has and is not borrow iug money, is u hard mau to break. He has no fears of a panic. So long as the great majority of the people remain in this condition, aud there is nothing in sight just now to tempt them out of it, there cau be no ser ious disturbance of the financial con dition of the country. —Er.
