Ditch Notes
William O’Gara, of Deuvor, repre
senting eastern capitalists, has spent
the past week thoroughly investigat
ing the Bent and Prowers Irrigation
District with a view of investing in
the bonds He was accompanied by
Stephen Scott, chairman of the board
of director, and their attorney J. B.
Trailer. He was greatly impressed
with what they showed him, both as
to the character of the soil and the
fine system of natural ieservoirs for
storing the big annual flow of flood
waters.
Other bond buying companies
have sent notices that their agents
will soon be here to look over the
proposition. It is becoming quite
appareut that thei'e will be consider
able competition in the bidding for
the bonds.
The vacant government lands in
the irrigation district are being rap
idly taken up by settlers. Fifteen
or twenty homesteads were tiled in
that portion of the district southwest
of Lamar the present week.
Prowers County Real Estate.
Prowers county real estate is now
changing hands so rapidly that only
the larger deals are mentioned any
more.
Attorneys Goodale and Hillyer
last week closed up the sale of the
large Graham ranch northwest ot
Granada to Chas. M. Parmele, of
Plattsmouth, Nebraska, who will soon
commence extensive improvements
thereon. The puichase price was
$90,000
Hobert Smith last week purchased
the southwest quarter of 10-22-47,
paying $14,000 for it. Mr. Smith
says that land that will produce the
enormous crops that are raised in
Prowers county is a bargain at the
present prices, and he is closing out
his Illinois real estate to invest in
this county.
D. H. Bane & Go. will bring anoth
er large party of land seekers to this
vicinity tomorrow, showing them the
lauds north of Prowers station.
Wheat Crop
Prowers county is now harvesting
the banner wheat crop ever raised
anywhere, aud the reports coming in
from the various thhreshing outfits
is simply astounding to farmers even
from the supposed wheat belt.
C. M. Paulson 22 acre crop run a
little over 65 bushels to the acre, but
when finished it was found tnat the
weight on the measuring apparatus
had slipped so as to measure 80 lb<*.
to the bushel at the last, so it is evi
dent that the crop went well over 70
bushels per acre.
Rev. W. T. Turpin’s 80 acre field
of wheat was threshed last week and
yielded 68 bushels per acre.
Reports of yields of 40 bushels
and up are so frequent as to cause
very little comment, and there are
only a few even of the very large
fields that yield uuder 85 bushels
per acre.
The acreage for Prowers county
this year is much the largest of any
ever raised here, and will force the
Lamar mill to workovertime to grind
it. They are paying $1.05 at the
start of the season.

Mr. and Mrs. Fred Williams en
tertained several of their neighbors
last Sunday.
A. G. Carley went back to his
ranch near Fergus, Monday.
Anna Walters expects to take the
next teachers’ examination.
Most wheat of this vicinity is now
in the stack. It is unusually heavy
this year.
Dick Turner says “To marry or
not to marry,” U the question that

H. O. Hainline and several of bis
relatives, who are visiting with him,
entertained a surprise party last Sat
urday night. A fine time is reported.
Mrs. Fletch Hewey and John
Sarah were called to ChivingtoD
quite unexpectedly Sunday, on ac
oount of the severe illness of their
mother who is afllicted with paralysis.

Railroad Notes
The Santa Fe system has done as
expected and absorbed the new roads
through the sugar beet section, and
will hereafter control the construe
tion work, with Channing M. Ward
iu charge.
The Arkansas Valley It. R. will be
completed as projected, as it is the
main line through the sugar beet
territory. Of the other line only the
“spurs” from Holly and Swiuk con
necting with the main line at Lays
and Shelton will be constructed.
The headquarters of this exteusive
branch system will be at Lamar, and
this with the tremendous local busi
ness of the Santa Fe at Lamar ne
cessitates the oonstruotion of the
handsome new depot, which will
soon be under way. The contract
has been let for a building that will
be adequate for the needs of the
road and the branch system. It will
be located on the railroad grouud
between Main and Fourth streets.
No Epidemic Here
In the Sunday’s Pueblo Chieftain
was an article purporting to give the
state board of health as authority for
the statement that an epidemic of
typhoid fever is raging along the
Arkansas valley from Grand Junction
to Holly, being the worst around
Holly and Lamar. The author
showed his ignorance of the locality
maligned by looating Grand Juno
tion iu the Arkansas valiey, but that
is small compared to his other mis
representations. A canvass of the
physicians in Prowers county shows
less than a dozen oases in the coon
ty, and practically all of them iu
the mildest form. The Chieftain has
been turned into a yellow journal,
we know, but it should draw the line
at allowing its sensational reporters
