Reed, of Rocky Fold, his rented land on the XY ranch and will move here February Ist. He says our land is the best on earth. • • • A. J. Head, of Lawrenoe, Kansas, last week rented a farm on the XY ranoh and will move his family here early in January. He was highly pleased with the church and school facilities here. • * • Bane & Bassett have commenced hauling lumber to build eight new houses on the XY. This means more business for Granada. Each new house built near Granada means another family to buy groceries, dry goods and hardware. Let the good work go on. People are what we want. • * • B. M. Hall and W. A. Connelley, successful farmers at Rocky Ford, were looking over our country, the first of the week. They both rented land on the XY ranch and will move down as soon as the houses and im provements can be built. The Rocky Ford oountry has long been consid ered the favored epot, and it speaks well for our Granada country when the Rooky Ford farmers leaye it and come here. Empire Valley Mr. Daniels has just completed a neat dwelling house on the farm he lives on. Also an addition is being built on the house occupied by Tom Stickler. These imptovements are made by the “Storage” people who own the lands. Mr. Wm. O'Malley has just com pleted a two story seven room house on his farm near the Leatherman A Leasnre place. Every beet grower should attend the beet growers association meeting at Lamar Saturday, Dec. 23rd, place court house, at 1 o'clock p. m.

Miss Myrtle Marx and her sohool at May Valley will also have a tree and exercises appropriate to the oc casion, Friday evening, Dec. 22. A big treat is in store for every boy and girl in that neighborhood that evening. Our young people have had de lightful times skating on the lakes for the past two weeks. While no particularly fancy or expert skating is done, yet gracefulness of motion as well as swiftness is noticed, while with some stomach skates would be just the thing, others would be well off with rear view bumper attach ments. However, fun is what they are after and they all get it. Fort Lyon Canal Meeting. The stockholders of the Fort Lyon Oanal company held their annual meeting in the court house Monday for the purpose of hearing the financial report for the past year, the election of five directors for the coming year and other business rela tive to the interests of the oanal. The attendanc of real and active farmers was not large, which is evi dence they are satisfied and pleased with the management of this great canal during the past year by the board of directors —and all of whom were re-elected. However, there were enough kick ers present to make the meeting in teresting and give life to the pro ceedings. One of the governing and fundamental principles of this great land of ours is, a man can’t be a ffood American or a successful busi ness man until he has thoroughly The Lamar Register Beautiful Hand Decorated China at I=3 Off Regular Price Every piece of Haviland, Royal Vienna, Austrian, Royal Nippon and Japanese China in the house is included in this great re duction sale HIGH GRADE HAND=PAINTED IMPORTED CHINA at the Price of Ordinary Cheap Table Ware This is a sale that will never be equaled in Lamar.

THE UP-TO-DATE DRUG COMPANY The largest institution of its kind in the Arkansas valley Postoffice Building, Lamar, Colo. learned the principles and art of knowing how, when and where to kick, and then do it in systematic and telling effect. The kickers at this meeting were all successful farmers in the past tense of the yerb —worked. They wore the latet-t style of uptodate tailor made olothes, carefully deposited their warm and neat fitting topcoats in places where it was reasonably sure no one would swipe them, adjusted their vari-col ored silk neckties to fit snug at the opening in the spotless collar that stood high and white under their ears and tickled them under the chin, spread the tails of their coats and carefully sat down and for a moment gazed ut the toes of their patent leather shoes. One could see by their white, plump hauds, or the long, slender and suple fingers adorned with rings, that if ever they grasped a plow handle, wielded a hoe or pounded a stubborn mule, there is no man in Bent county with memory long enough to recall that time. And there were farmers dressed in duck coats, flannel shirts and coarse boots. Their faces were bronzed by the summer's suu and winds of fall and early winter; their bands were rough and fingers stiff from labor in the fields, but their heads wore clear as the bright un clouded autumn days. These two classes of farmers are the men who do things and who are making the CHURCH BROS. & EVERETT Dealers In GROCERIES QUEENSWARE AND FURNISHINGS / Sole Agents for the Celebrated “QUEEN QUALITY” Ok SHOES 'Ye also carry a large stock of other makes.
