All the reservoirs of the valley are getting the full benefit of the unus ual flow of water the past season, and all are or will soon be full to overflowing. The five great reser yoirs of the Great Plains Storage Co. north of Lamar are now almost filled for the first time to their full oapao ity, or will be in a short time. Water is being stored for the first time in the great Nee Sopah reservoir which has hitherto been dry. The Amity canal oould easily go through the next season without any water from the river exoept for the first division between the headgate and Sand oreek. The reservoirs of all the other systems are also well filled, but none of course have the storage capacity of the Great Plains Co. Another good season is assured the yalley whether it rains or not.

Long came in from Kiowa county last week and inform ed ns that people are pouring into all the towne along the line of the Missouri Pacific railroad. All these little towns are now taking on new life and booming as they did in the days of ’B7. These people are bap py over their prospects and a few of the early ones who came in time to plow land last year and cultivate this season aooording to the Campbell system have good results to show for their work. Over thirty homestead filings were made from that section at the Lamar land offioe on last Thursday morn ing, and they are ooming in right along, some every day. Cruel Greeting An unfeeling wretch, without the fear of the press in kis heart, and who has read the recent Santa Fe pass orders to take effect January 1, has sent ns the following New Year’s greeting: “Everybody goes but father, He cueeee around all day Cause the railroad’s run by a cold blooded fiend, Who saye you must walk or pay. Mother ridee in the chair oar, Maggie takes the Pullman to roam, Johnny walks the cross ties While father stays at home.” Business Change.
