VOLUME XX. County Notes. [From the Holly Chieftain I The Santa Fe has the brick on the ground for a new platform. e • • Geo. L. Reid came down from Tribune Tuesday and took the train for Lamar, where he has business interests. The factory brioklayers finished the work on the new office building of the Holly Sugar Company last Friday. They will do the brick work on the new Jones block next week. * * * The largest crowd of land seekers seen here for a long time came in yesterday in charge of Fred Mohl. They are now keeping the local real estate men and all the available rigs in town on the hustle, showing them over the country. * * * A good many people have left this country within tue nine years that we have lived here, and gone to hunt a better place. A lot of them came back again satisfied to stay here and from the best information we can get they are more prosperous today than those who are still trying to make themselves believe they have found something better elsewhere. This country is all right and one can get rich here within the time it I would take to find a better one —if he is not afraid to work. • * • rFrom the Granada Times.] The loading of sugar beets began, Tuesday, and for months to come the music of these money makers falling from the wagons into the oars will delight the ears of farmers and merchants. May they never grow less! • * * Thirty-five cars of cattle were ■hipped from Carlton last Friday. The Graham estate shipped six oars. • • a The eight-year-old son of Grant Davis, of the North Side, was badly injured, last Thursday, by a horse running over him. He was trying to drive the horse which was loose, into the barn when it ran over him, breaking two ribs, one of which pen etratei the lung. The boy was trying to catoh the horse to drive to Holly after his father, who had been to Missouri for the Amity people to secure men to work, and had re turned that day with 50 working men. We are glad to report that the injured boy is getting along nioely. Colorado Alfalfa. Fort Collins, Colo., Oct. 19. Word was received by Dean W. L. Carlyle today from Wisconsin stat ing that Yeksa Sunbeam, a Guernsey cow, had broken the world’s record for production of milk and butter in a test lasting one year. During this time this remarkable cow yield ed 14,920.8 pounds of milk, contain ing 857.14 pounds of butter fat. This record is of course of great interest to the dairy world, and particularly to Colorado people, from the fact that a year ago Fred Rietbrock, owner of the cow, bought of L. Ogilvy of La Salle, Colo., enough first grade alfalfa bay to feed the animal while she was engaged in breakiug the world’s record, and Mr. Rietbrock considers that the very fine quality of alfalfa be re ceived from this state contributed to his successful test. Patron Talks. The following communication from Mac Campbell in the Las Animas Leader has too much good sense in it to lose, and as it is not copyrighted we will republish it •ntire: Oct. 17, 1905. Well, what next! The Bent County Fair iH over; it was a season of not only enjoyment and hand shaking, but a profitable one to all participants, and like the mcnkey that took the old cat’s paw and pull ed the chestnuts out of the fire, those who did not participate, will be on hand to'eat the profits derived from the world wide advertisements, which is the result of all county fairs. Show me a county without *u annual Fair and I will show yon The Lamar Register The Best Drag Store Service We offer the best service it is possible for you to get anywhere, the largest and most complete stock of absolutely pure Drugs and Medicines, and the most experienced and expert druggists We solicit your patronage, and guarantee you most complete satisfaction in every particular THE UP-TO-DATE DRUG COMPANY The largest institution of its kind in the Arkansas valley Postoffice Building, Lamar, jColo. one like the old cows tail always behind. But I discover lam drift ing into the channel of kickism, and if L don’t quit reading the editorials of the Democrat and Field and Farm the mania will fasten it’s clutches of kickem upon me to the extent of at least being 3d. in the class, with Lute at the head and George 2d. Ho calm down patron and take your medicine. Antis never got any thanks, .boodle, honors or offices, so let us three get into the boat of prosperity and move along with the tide. Now Lute’s main kick is on Mr. Wilson Secy, of Agriculture. Lute says he is no farmer; now, Lute, you are mistaken, I saw Wil son and shook hands with him aud I found corns there as big as the average patches on Farmer Lute’s pants. George’s hobby is railroads, insurance companies and dry land farming. Now, George! you let these fellows alone and apply your your editorials to Bent county agriculture, so that you will be able when you attend the next Beot County Fair to know the names of the products at first sight. Patrons hobby is the Fort Lyon Canal, Burke, Kreybill, and others but they let me fight alone,although I wait each mail for an answer, but so far there has been no response. I started this communication with 'what next,’ and have taken up more than my alloted space with bouse cleaning and re grets, so next week I will tell you what is next for Bent county and for fear I might return to my first love of kickism, I will give you my text:—Good Roads. Amen! Amen! Amen! says brothers Murray, Huey and Marl man. Patron. Getting Even. The businessmen "bf Delavan are takiug a unique way of getting even with the mail order houses in Chica go. They paid their drayman S4O a month to get the names of those who were receiving freight from mail order houses. When one of these parties went into a Delavan store to get any thing on credit, he was refused no matter how good his financial standing was. When they had butter and eggs to sell, they were told to sell the product to Montgomery Ward or Sears, Roebuck & Co. The result was that the town was put on a cash basis and the people were forced to quit trading at the mail order hoflses.—Portage Democrt. Ramona.
