We hare received just fourteen New Year'e editions of daily papers each aooompanied with a request for a marked oopy of onr comments on the same. They are all poorer than common, whioh is saying a good deal. This notioe will hare to do for the fourteen. When Perry Belmont first started his movement for purity in politics there were some, who on account of several shady business dealings and his stealing another man’s wife, had eome misgivings in regard to his sincerity, but all this is changed sinoe Angel Arohie Stevenson has been appointed Colorado's member of the committee. No other thought ever entered Stevey’s manly bosom than that political suoeess could only be obtained through the purest methods —besides several years ago the Tramway discharged him as handler of its corruption fund. Lamar and Prowers county start the new year with brilliant prospects for another suooessful and prosper ous season. The railroad building proposed for theoonnty this year and the doubling of the oapaoity of the Lamar sugar factory will make another reoord breaking year for the employment of labor and distribute several hundred thousand dollars in the oounty. The farmers have had suoh a fine run of water this fall and winter and the ground is in suoh splendid condition that there is every prospect of another bumper crop seaaon. Who Can Beat Them. Big figures are those that go to tell of the production of the several industries of Colorado in the year that slipped off the oalendar at mid night. But there ia more behind them than they themselves suggest in a cursory perusal. The metals total up over forty-two millions, the sugar beets give over seven, the live stock interests have sold off more than fifteen million dollars worth of produots, the farms and orchards with the dairies and kindred branch es something like forty eight, the ooal mines about nine, the steel and other manufactories all of seventy five; until over two hundred million dollars worth of the products of earth have bees produced by the state in one year and added to the wealth of the world or its susten ance. It is a big business the state has done, viewed from any standpoint, and the fact must not be overlooked that in it is the aooomplishment of but 600,000 people. It is the work of lees than 200,090 men. Let the out sider oonsider this faot along with the figures of produots and see if he does not reach the conclusion that it was the work of 200,000 pretty good menl Can the world beat the record? Is there another spot on earth that can measure man to man and dollar of production with dollar and come anywhere near it? There is not. If there is another country that can re spond so well to the effort of each in dividual, can produce as oiuoh, man to man, it has been carefully keep ing in the background. If there is another where every man's work brings so large a response of made dollars it has not been found. We will back both man and country against the world.—Ex. The Sugar Crop. Stupendous scarcely expresses the figures of the world’s sugar crop. The compilation of annual statistics is on and from the records it is shown that in the dosing year th»re has been produced 12,723,000 tons. Of ibis a little more than half was beet sugar, of whioh the United States produced only 265,000 tons against the 9,550,000 tons of the rest of the world. There are several surprising things to be learned from the analysis of the crop. The Philippines, of the danger of whose sugar flooding this country much has been heard of latet produced but 110,000 tons, less than one per cent of the world's crop and but little more than the date of Colorado. Germany is credited with 2,175,000 tons of beet sugar, more than a third of that of all the world and about one-fifth of the entire production. Colorado, with its 92,500 tons, has produced about one third of the beet sugar of the United States. Important as has the sugar indus try become in this state, rapid as has been its growth in the few years that have elapsed since the erection of the fijst faotory, it is worth remembering that it is but a small fraction of the world’s sugar farm. The entire ir rigated section of the slate if planted in beets would still be little more shan a garden patch in the planta tion. The splendid record of the dosing year has not made the least impression on the world’s statistics, being less than oue per cent of the whole. Ten times the acreage of the year could be put in beets, there could be 120 factories running in the state before the Colorado output would begin to figure in the world’s sugar businoss. Ten times the present acreage in sugar beets, ten times the present number of factories, are both quite possible. It would not be particu larly surprising to find this condi tion in the state some years henoe. It would make this the richest state per capita in the Union. It is a business that has proved highly profitable for all who have part in it. The farmer, the manufacturer, the investor in lands and factories, all are being enriched and there seems no real cause for fear that the con ditions that make this possible will be chauged to any considerable ex tent foi years to come. It entails much labor and gives remunerative employment to thousands. In near ness to consuming market the local fields enjoy an advantage that can not well be overcome by outsiders as long as no serious disturbance of the tariff is permitted. It is obvious that every acre of land under water in the state oould be profitably put into beets as fast as factories oould be built and labor to tend the crop secured. This would drive the alfalfa grower, the wheat and oatH men onto the un watered tracts. The advance in farming methods promised through the study of the Campbell idea is fast preparing the non-irrigable areas to take the place of the irri gated in growing such crops, leav ing the artificially watered sections to the beet. This possible progres sion opens a great future to the state rad promises that in a few years its agricultural interests will begin to rate in hundreds of millions instead of a half hundred, as now.— Denver Republican. Good Investment. The Colorado Railway Signal Co. wish to again oall yout attention to rhe faot that they have the most complete and only practicnl signal device for the protection of human life ever designed for the purpose. That the railroads have no money invested in any devioe of this kind henoe would not have to tear out something already installed in order to install this. That the cost of in stallation of this will be very small. That the cost of maiutainanoe is al most nothing. That the heads of some of the most prominent Western roads have declared this to be the first and only practical machine they have ever seeu for the purpose. Every one knows there are tens of thuusanis of places where such de vices are needed. With these facts before you does it not seem reason able that this oompany will be able to pay large dividends on a capitali zation of $50,000. If you are pros perous you are apt to be happy.

While taking his Christmas hom ing in Brownsville, Tenn., Gov. Folk has declined to discuss democratic party politics with an interviewer. Such a course of action is clearly in accord with the Christmas spirit It is impossible for any man to discuss democratic party politios and pro mote peace on earth and good will to man. The governor oould not of fend the republicans, no matter what he might say. With the country in its present prosperous condition un der their administration and with the people evidently understanding what it is tbat doesn’t hunt them, togeth er with the democrats hunting as many caves of Adullam as there are cracks and fissures in their common ground, republicans are altogether good humored toward the opposi tion. There is nothing a Democrat can say whioh will not get a laugh from U 9, if be says it in the right way, and it iB hard to see how he could strike the wrong note, Wheth er he denounce us in the inflamma tory speech of rage, or admonish the country to beware of us in a deep toned knell of solemnity, the effect, under existing conditions, is sure to be the same. We would have to laugh. Even Gov. Folk, who has been accused of inability to see the point of a joke, and whom nobody has ever suspected of witty discourse, could hardly have failed of raising a laugh if he had availed himself of his Brownsville oppor tunity and laid on to the republican party with a right good will. The governor is too good a politician not to see and understand this. It was not the republicans he had in mind when he thought of the social obli gations of the season. The only in ference left is that it must have been the democrats he spared. The act was one of a generous magnanimity well befiitting the Christmas time. No statesman of the present day, however expert, can throw at hazard, or in any direction, into the thick gloom surrounding democratic party politios, and not hear an answering yelp or growl. Something, or somebody, be will surely hit. If that gloom oould be cut with a knife, the multitude of knives now out and in the hands of their owners would dispel it, but it has come to stiyr, and defies every effort to move it. A Missourian or Missourians, oounting in democratic obronology, is already at knivee’ points with John Sharp Williams, who is by oourtesy called leader of the democrats in the house of the con gress. The irony in the title has been shown by Mr. Hearst of New York, Mr. Shackleford of Missouri, Mr. Lamar of Florida and others so plainly that the fiction of a minority leadership by Mr. Williams in un derstood as meaning only that more of the minority will follow him than would follow anybody else. The fact that Mr. Williams can oommand a larger personal following than any other democrat in the house fixes the present status of the democratic party so clearly that there is not oc casion for the throwing of brioks, for the breaking of heads and Christ mas traditions. Besides, although a Missouri democrat, and the one rep resenting the district in which the governor now lives, is in the reyolt against the Williams brand of states manship, the governor doubtless has excellent democratic reasons for holding fast to the Christian charity of silence this Christmas season. — Globe-Democrat. Your Children's Eves should be examined preparatory to their school work. W. F. Noyes, M. D., Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat. Office in State Bank Block. The really busy man always has more time than the man who only thinks he is busy. There is always hope for a man so long as he can look at things with the eyes of a child. The man who has only flowers In the garden of his life does not need to build a wall about It. When God hangs his promises on the wall of the heart the devil’s pic tures have no attraction for the eye. —Young Folks. THINGS TO ELIMINATE. That candy-eating habit, girls—does It do you any good . One branch of knowledge concen trated upon amounts to more In the long run. These fads of music, or art, or short fits of study—are they of any real use or benefit? That way of spending money on every little trifle that we fancy—is It of real use or benefit? That tobacco habit, boys, or the oc casional “treating” or “being treated” Those people whom we go to see and also entertain, yet really care nothing for—ls this society of any real use or benefit? Better one good friend of nature, stimulating, congenial, and sympathet ic, saith the prophet, than a host of society friends of the wreathed smile, the nod and beck which conceal the sneer.—Philadelphia Bulletin. REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR. A girl has a very warm way of being cold to a man she likes. A woman thinks she la a man’s su perior because he takes oil his hat to her. People in a flirtation are moderately safe until they agree with each other to be good about It. A nice thing about getting licked Is you know how the other fellow would feel If It had happened to him. When a girl weeps she thinks she gets a light on her lashes that shines ■fee a rainbow; what she gets is a red a^aa —New York Press. BAYS THE BACHELOR GIRL. The most salient feature In the en vironment of every one of us Is the way we get our living. That’s the only objectionable thing about a bed bug. Heredity, home influence, early training—all put together have not so much to do with making us as the way we get our living If we do not get our living at all, but Inherit It or have an income giv en us by someone else, tbat makes a very distinct type of man. Each em ployment stamps another type. Individuals may vary within the type, but no two mechanics will vary as much as a mechanic and a doctor, for Instance. The fact that the vast majority of men receive rewards proportioned to their efforts and abilities, and that the vast majority of women do not. Is the fundamental cause of the intellectual, moral and temperamental differences In the sexes. No woman In domestic life gets what she earns. If her husband or father is a moneymaker, she has money whether she does anything for it or not If he can’t make money, she may work like a slave for board and clothes. Nothing but the fact their In come is affected by the laws of finance, economics and government has ever made men reason about these things. Women don’t reason about these things in general, because their whole relation to the laws that govern civili zation is indirect. Their immediate economic environ ment is the man who gets a living for them. All the rest is remote. Put men and women under the same economic conditions and they reason In the same way.—Minnie J. Reynolds In New York Times. GUSSES AT LIFE’S PROBLEMS. To many a man age brings golf in stead of wisdom. Most people don’t know what they think until somebody tells them. "There Is no place like home.” But no one would be satisfied with any body else’s. Men who best understand modern Inventions are doing the most to rem edy their defects. Most of the people who admire In galls' poem wouldn’t know Oppor tunity If they should see her. If we only could get along without eating, or sleeping, or clothing, what a lot of money we would save. Sometimes It la wrong to do to oth ers as you would have them do to you. Every one hasn't the same tastes. Sometimes when a man does things without being told he gets his pay raised and sometimes he loses his job. Statistics obtained by personal in quiry of tramps show that none was ever to blame for his present condi tion. Many a man has made a fortune out of an Invention that somebody else thought of, but neglected to see its possibilities. The man who makes the most fuss about having been sold a gold brick is the man who is most anxious to sell it to somebody else.—Chicago Tribune. A BUDGET OF MAXIMS. Rather than say nothing, men are content to speak 111 of themselves. A proud man can never be a loser; no, not even when he renounces his pride. It is much less for a man's honor to distrust his friends than to be de ceived by them. Few people have the wisdom to like reproofs that would do them good better than praises that do them hurt. It Is with true love as with ghosts and apparitions, a thing that every body talks of and scarce anybody hath seen. The most disinterested love Ib. after all. but a kind of bargain in which the dear love of our own selves always proposes to be the gainer some way or other. —Rochefoucauld. WISE REFLECTIONS. Diplomacy is being awfully sur prised when you get a plum that you have been scheming very hard for. A woman always wonders what her husband has been doing when he gives her a lot of money to buy presents with. When an old maid bumps her head against the door in the dark she never has to worry over the way people will wonder If her husband did 1L It’s vary aggravating the way some people have of telling a girl how they were going to send her a box of candy If they had not been called ost of town at the critical moment One Woman’s Wisdom. Green—"l don’t see how Slyker’s wife manages to get along with him.” Brown—" Why not?” Green—" He’s such a slippery chap.” Brown —”Oh, she walks over him iwugh-shod.” Different.
