VOLUME XXI. FOOT BALL. Lamar Enjors Its First Gams, and the Lamar Hi«h School Bovs Win from Las Animas. A crowd of over three hundred citizens went ont to the foot ball field just south of the High school grounds on Thanksgiving afternoon to see the Lamar high school boys play their second gams of foot ball. The boys were just organized this year and none of them had ever played the game before. After be ing coached for sometime by Dr. J. Y. Hayler they went to Las Animas and played their first game, being defeated by a score of sto 0. Noth ing daunted they asked for a return game less than a week later, and with the spirit that has made the Lamar high school boys famous in the valley, went in to win. The game was a splendid one and all the spectators got their money's worth several times over. Every inch of ground was contested hotly by both teams and the Lamar boys won at the start by as fine an exhi bition of straight foot ball rushing as is often seen on any field. Lamar kicked off and Las Ahimas caught the ball returning it to the center of field. They then tried three times to get through the Lamar line but instead of gaining the necessary ten yards they lost that many and La mar took the ball. The boys then rushed the ball straight, down the field, going through the Las Animas line for a gain on every down, and never were stopped until they had crossed the Las Animas goal line for the only touch down of the game. It was made in just six minutes and Lyvere kicked the goal, making the score 0 to 0. The reet of the first half was all played in Las Animas half of the field but no more scores were made. In the second half both teams played well, frequently making good gains which were loudly applauded, but neither side was able to get very near the other’s goal and most of the playing was done near the cen ter of the field. The game finished with the score 6 to 0 in favor of the Lamar boys. There is no question of the popu larity of foot ball in Lamar, and the high school boys are the special pride of the town, as they always go into any sport with a determination that is sore to win.

About seventy members of the Brotherhood of St. Paul and friends attended the banquet at the Union hotel on Monday evening. The at tendance was a represantaiive one for both the older and younger gen erations of the town, and prov ed the increasing influence of this organization in the community. The guest of the evening was Hon. Earl M. Cranston, of Denyer, U. S. District Attorney for Colorado, and as Mr. Cranston had been one of the eepecial champions of Lamar and Prowers oounty in the early days of the town's history there is always a warm feeling of friendship for him here, as his enthuiastio reception proved. The banquet served by Landlord Shaub of the Union hotel was one of the best and most artistically served bandquets ever given in the town, and the delightful music fur nished by the Bannister orchestra added muoh to the pleasure of all. The toastmaster for the evening was Hon. O. C. Goodale, and that means of oourse that all the subjects and orators were introduced in a neat and entertaining manner. The speakers were Geo. D.

The theatre loving people of this city will soon be fayored with Gor don & Bennett’s sumptuous Bibli cal Drama "The Holy City.” This great play ia a distinct variation from the numerous plays that will visit this oity this season. This sacred tragedy protrayed by a com petent company of artists, reveals the life of and adventures of Christ and John the Baptixer, as interpreted by the Christian from the Holy Bible and the fact alone is but hon est eyidence that the majority of oritioa of the day can be satisfied with the same feeling while witness ing a play, especially when the soripture ia vividly illustrated to them by human baings, in a manner so impressive that their religions qualifications are soon exhausted by the complete covering of the period when Christ was on earth. While the play from start to finish is edu cating, strictly moral and above all intensely interesting, the oruoifixion and asoention evokes the highest in spiration in the flaming aoal of the sudienoe, who by this time have lost all sense of the present epoch in life. These two scenes bring forth earnest applanse. The thunder and lighting storm dnring the crucifixion are forcibly produced, the eleotrioal effects only compare with the natur al storm, the soenio effects in gener al as well as the oostnming are elaborate and well with the days of Christ when he rode into Jerusalem upon a white ana. omsiati jrE3r3Pxr«» o** PwourEEa cottittt LAMAR, PROWERS COUNTY.
