VOLUME XX. County Notes. [From the Holly Chieftain I Granby Hillyer, one of Lainar’H prominent attorneys, was in Holly | Wednesday attending to some legal business. The Holly Sugar Company placed ■ its first order for beets with the farm ers this week. The factory made a test run yesterday, and next Monday the sugar-making campaign will open up in full blast and continue until something like 00,000 tons of sugai beets have been converted into the finest of granulated sugar. * * * The bricklayers finished their work at the sugar factory Saturday even ing. They celebrated the occasion by gathering at one of the boarding houses in the west part of town after supper and spending a few hours in social amusements. They have been working on the new offices of the Amity Land Company this week and that building is now about complet ed. • • • The oounty commissioners at their regular session last week decided to locate the new Holly bridge on the section line, a quarter of a mile east of the center of town. Now that the location, which has been a bone of contention for some time, has at last been decided upon, the building of this much-needed structure will no doubt be commenced at once and pushed along as rapidly as possible. • • • Carload shipments of cantaloupes will cease this week but express ship ments still continue. Some patches have yielded from 100 to 200 crates per aore, which at the prices being received means that many dollars per acre. How is that for Colorado t • * • f From the Granada Times.] Mrs. Carrie Hutchins and children oame down from Lamar Monday, for a visit with relatives here. John Mock surprised us last week, by calling and asking if we knew where he could find cotton pickers. There are few, if any, in this coun try, but he has since secured suffi cient help to care for his crop. It is hoped that Mr. Mock will continue his experiments in cotton growing, and on a larger scale, next year. Colorado Agriculture It must be getting rather monot onous to states that have long been considered great agricultural states to read the awards of the agricultural medals at the various big national expositions. In each of these lists of awards the Small section of Colo rado devoted to agriculture carries off more medals than auy two or three of the so-called great agricul tural states. The Colorado display at the Port land exposition was gathered togeth er hurriedly and at small expense, and was not large enough to attract mnch attention. When it came to making the awards on quality, how ever, it just about swept the boards clean, taking over 500 medals, 250 of which weie gold ones. On wheat the Colorado farmers made the big wheat states look like thirty cents with a hole in it, and in oats, barley and other grains the results weie about the same. Colora do farmers not only lead in their specialties of fruits, sugar beets and alfalfa, but also in almost every other line of agriculture. NO HOODOO Friday, the Thirteenth, Lucky Day in Lamar.

OCTOBER 18, 1905 in Colorado of late, aud the state will soon be recognized as a very un healthy location for any but honest banking methods. Just at present tbe jail* of the state are as full of bank wreckers as they were last fall of election thieves. E M. better known as “Fidelity” Johnson, who caused untold misery a year ago by wrecking tbe Fidelity Savings Association, was the first of these thieves to be convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary at bard labor, and tbe supreme court this week refused to grant him a super sedeas peudiug a review of his case, so he will have to go to Canon City and don the stripes. The sight of him pounding rock will Lave a salu tary effect on some others who are morally degenerate enough to follow his example. Enforce the Law. When Mr Roosevelt was police commissioner iu New York,he said he was going to enforce tbe laws, whether they were considered bad or good —if good, that society might be benefited; if bad; that the enforce ment might result iu a change of tbe law. Tbe same policy is now fol lowed by Auditor Bent and his deputy insurance commissioner is requiring tbe insurance companies to comply with tbe laws of Colorado, if tbe lawa are not right, they cau be changed. Aud tbe enforcement of tbe state laws in regard to insur ance companies is likely to have the effect of bringing tbe insurance men themselves to favor federal super vision of their interstate busineas. — Victor Record. Feel Like Lazarus The newspaper quintette team got a little worse drubbing last Friday uigbt than in tbe first match. Tbe county officials seemed to be afraid they might get beat by the way they bowled. The fear was uncalled for. We warn tbe commissioners to look out for those officials, they are get ting in the “beating habit.” The score is given below: PKINTKRS I 2 • Total* Friend ns i» ns ass 1)011 v Illy 11l LSI 102 ;177 Merrill 126 I*B 3WJ Ha .*en 99 146 132 377 Luwlfhh HO 117 852 Total* Ml 640 620 1557 °Uck ALB 181 116 182 879 dark 135 107 12* 870 Heaton 1«6 100 149 417 KolSnHon 109 lIU 112 331 Adblo* J 62 J4I l«u J 66 Total* 70S 677 681 1963 $30,000 just received for farm loans.
