Richard Klett, more generally known as M Dick” was down from Las Animas last Saturday, attending to some busi ness matters. The Register made a mistake last week in announcing the lucky winner of the doll at McLean Bros, store. It was Sam Smith instead of Fred Cooper. Chester N. Young, formerly a Prowers county stockman now living near Colo rado Springs, was attending to business matters in Lamar the first of the week. Miss Birdie King and Miss Amie Mourning went to Pueblo to see the great play of Ben Hur. They anticipate having a great treat in witnessing the play. Miss Iva Markham left last night for Baldwin, Kansas, to finish the school year. She enjoyed the holidays at home and returns to her school work with re newed zest. The streets are all having name signs put up and the houses are having num bers placed upon them. In a short time one can tell where one lives all the same as in a big city. The county commissioners are in ses sion this week, but beyond transacting the usual monthly grist of business, there is nothing of particular import ance to occupy their attention. Miss Geneva Morehouse, who has been speeding the holidays with relatives in Lamar, returned to Denver last Monday morning, to resume her duties aB a teacher in the public schools. The Misses Gauss received the sad news on New Year’s day of the death of their sister in Denver, and all left for that city to attend the funeral. They have the sincere sympathy of the com munity in their great sorrow. Carlton is enjoying a boom. The rail road has established a station there with both day and night service nnd will soon build a depot. Other improve- | ments will soon be made that will make it appear very much like a city. Monday was the “Happy New \ ear’ day and the greetings were very hearty among our people. We have a lot of prosperous people here and they all ought to be in a good humor, no matter what the weather may be. T. J. Cooper has bought the residence property of Fred C. Schmidt on Sixth street. Mr. Cooper and his family have been living in the house for some months and liked the location and the property so well, that the property was bought as a permanent home. There were nearly three hundred and fifty instruments more filed in the coun ty clerk’s office last year than the year before. And there was a big lot the year before, too. This shows that the real estate is moving and that a great deal of business is being done. A marriage license was issued last Saturday afternoon to K. Swndley and Miss Nellie Lyvere. These young peo ple reside on the north side of the river and are well known. Their neighbors and friends wish them all the joys or life and many years of prosperity. The ladies of the Social Circle wish to extend their thanks to all who assisted with the bazaar and supper, and the muny who encouruged us by their pres ence as well as their liberal patronage.

Cou ncil to be installed as their permanent pastor, the trustees were also authoriz ed to present as a New Year’s gift to Rev. Connell the title to a building lot 40x100 adjoining the church property. The niueteenth annual ball of the La mar Firemen occurred at the opera house on Monduy night. There was a great big crowd present and as it was a masked atfair, the costumes were of all sorts. Grotesque, funny, simple and ellegant. The music was fine and all had a great deal of fun. The surprises when the hour came for unmasking were almost as funny as some of the costumes. The firemen’s fund netted a neat sum from the ball. Messrs. Smart & Simon have started a new deal at their Golden Rule store iu the shape of a Profit Sharing Certifi cate to their customers, which makes their store on the same line as the co operative institutions. The certificate is printed in their ad on the firßt page of this pnper. and will enable all regu lar customers to share in the profits of this prosperous firm.

On last Saturday two bunk houses on the Hardscrabble ranch were set on fire and a telephone message to the officers iu Lamar resulted in a man named I*. F. Conner being caught at the bridge on his way to town. He had a box of matches and wore rubbers that just fit tod the tracks in the sand near where the houses stood. He had had trouble with Mr. Koen, the proprietor of the ranch, which had resulted in a trial in Judge Pike’s court, in which Mr. Koen came out victorious, Connor is now in jail awaiting his preliminary trial. The Happy Hooligan Blondes got a large bunch of sweet revenge on the Brunettes this eyening for their past defeats at the bowling alley.

Fatal Accident. During the Monday night shift at the factory C. E. Evans, who recently came here from Oxnard, California, was at tempting to kick a loose belt in position when he lost his balance and fell on the shnfting. His clothes caught in a set screw and he was carried around the shaft until his clothes were torn oil of him and then he was thrown against tne wall and fell to the floor below killing him iutdantly. In the absence of Coro ner Lee, Judgo Pike was called to hold un inquest blit after a careful examina tion decided that there was no necessity for an inquest as it wus an entirely un avoidable accident.

When hypocrites meet the devil has time to eat. He cannot be a saint who will not boa servant. Every man owes every other man a happy face. “Time to burn” keeps the devil’s furnace going. You soon lose the religion you try to keep to yourself. A bushel of potatoes may be worth a ton of philanthropy. Most of us believe that fasting fat tens —the other fellow. It takes more than the Sunday suit to make the solid saint. You do not cleanse yourself by smutting every one else. We find no better feelings in others than we foster In ourselves. The man who puts his heart into his work will always get ahead in It. You cannot esscape your taxes here by talking about your citizenship there. When “the good things of life” are our best tilings they become our worst. When a man wears his piety as an ornament you can depend on its be ing paste. If vinegar would preserve morals some men are sour enough to save the world. When you come to say good-by to old sins it is unwise to hold a fare well meeting. The seamy side of sin never shows up until we have nothing with which to smooth it down. You have no right to complain that the sermon is thin if you are keeping the preacher on a water-gruel salary. —Chicago Tribune. BULLETIN BUBBLES. Handed around—the time. Put to it for breath —the cornet Only two letters in the alphabet are of “no" use. The baker can give the actor points about creating rolls. The key to some women’s luxuriant looks is a false one. There are really few novel situa tions in some novels. “Anyhow,” thought the old derby hat, "I don’t look slouchy.” The least said on some subjects, the better, to say the least. All the roomers in the world would not fill the room for improvement. It takes more than four washers to keep the wheels of a wagon clean. There’s something new under the sun fcfr the girl with her first freckles. Some people do not seem to have any more patience than a young doc tor. The trouble with running expenses sometimes is that we cannot keep up with them. —Philadelphia Bulletin. FIGS AND THISTLES. A broom on earth may be better than many an anthem in heaven. It’s a poor bargain when the head grows at the expense of the heart. The man who never prays except when he petitions never prays at all. No method of raising money can be right which succeeds in debasing man hood. A SPECIAL WINTER SALE OF REMNANTS Commencing Saturday, January 6.

A Living Monument. If we were to assemble all those who have been cured of heart disease by Dr. Miles* Heart Cure, and who would to-day be in their graves had not Dr. Miles’ been successful in perfecting this wonderful heart specific, they would pop ulate a large city. What a remarkable record— a breathing, thinking, moving monument, composed of human lives, —that for which every other earthly possession is sac rificed. The Miles Medical Co. re ceive thousands of letters from these people like the following: “I feel Indebted to the Dr. Miles' Heart Cure for my life. I desire to call the attention of others suffering as I did to this remarkable remedy for the heart. For a long time I hnd suffered from shortness of breath after any little exertion, palpitation of the heart; and nt times terrible pain in the region of the heart, so serious that I feared that I would some time drop dead upon the street. One day I read one of your circulars, nnd immediately went to my druggist nnd purchased two bot tles of the Heart Cure, and took It according to directions, with the result that I am entirely cured. Since then T never mNs an opportunity to recommend this remedy to my friends who have heart trouble; In fact I am a traveling ndvertisment, for I am widely known In .hi.
