VOLUME XXI. County Notes. TFroa the Holly Chieftain I Diok Williams came in Wednes day and entered bis name on oar list. He was feeling too big to stand op in a room with only a 12- foot ceiling on account of the arrival the day before of a pair of twin girls at his place. The town marshal and board of trustees have united and decided to take no sleep until the town is free from the gambling evil. It is be lieved that it can be stopped and all who are inolined to yiolate the statutes will hereafter suffer the full penalty thereof. Such things are of no benefit whatever to a community and the lenienoy shown in the past should never again axist. • • • f From the Grenada Times.] SUKB A quarter section of dry land south of Granada was reoently sold for £2,000. The purchaser is li d to be from the Indian Territory and he seems to have faith in this coun try even where there are no irriga tion ditches. We are sure bis faith will never be shaken. e • e A. G. Eubank, of Lamar, dietrict deputy organizer of the Modern Woodmen of America, was in this town this wt sk securing mem bers for the order. It is the inten tion to initiate a class of 300 in the county soon. It is thought that this will occur either at Holly or La mar, as Granada has no hall large enough to accommodate such a crowd, Ho doubt Holly will be chosen, as the trains run more seasonably for the meeting at that place than at Lamar. A railroad for Baca and southern Prowers oounty is now almost an as sured faot. It is thought it will go through Springfield and Lamar on its way to Denver. Help it along. We can't haye too many of them* May Valley. Rev. Miller the newly appointed minister on the Lamar circuit, will bold services at May Valley at 2:30 p. m. next Sunday. Yon are oordial ly invited to attend this service. With the correction, that it was Pitkin, not Gilpin where Mr. Grif fith returned from; and it was the 35th instead of 25th aniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Rose, as was stated in our reoent items, they were oorreot. May Valley is certainly one of the best business points on the new rail road. Since opening Oot. 17, 1900, there have been shipped in, 5 oars of lumber, 3 oars oement, 2 cars iron, 3 cats prairie hay, 5 oars ooal, 8 oars pulp, 40 oars lambs and 28 oars oorn. There have been 25 cars of shoe p shipped out, 6,000 tons of beets or 175 oars loads. There will be 2,000 tons of beets to ship within 30 days 200 tons of hay and 30,000 or 125 cars lambs and sheep, 10 oars of fat cattle and other commodities. May Valley does things. Rio. Paradox Items. Wm. Barkley of Hazelton, Kan., was visiting at Dan Gorman’s last Sunday. Mr. Kemper has moved his crew to the Godley place, to work on the new railroad. We all appreciate the new bridge over the Hyde ditch, just south of the school house. X. Dry Farming Congress. For the first time in the history of America, a general movement has been inaugurated looking toward the rapid development and settlement of the dry land seotion of the west. Acting on the suggestion of many of Colorado's business men, Governor Jesse F. EcDonald of this state has called the "Taans Missouri Dry Farming Congress” to meet in Den ver on 24th and 25th of this month. The oall has been sent to every state west of the Missouri river and as surances have already been received that delegatee will come, with state sanction, from practically all of the sixteen common-wealths inoluded in the oall. The importance of this movement cannot be overestimated.

Within the last decade the spread of the so-called Campbell system, more oommonly known as "dry farming,” has convinced the thinking men of the country tnat in some such meth od as this liee the agricultural salva tion of the west, and it is now pro posed to start a broad, unprejudiced movement, in which every state af fected ahall take part to further de velop these soil culture systems aud bring them to the attention of the world at large. It is neeeaaary, also, so it is said by those who are interested, that some steps be taken to educate the farmers who are today coming into the dry lauds of the west. Id Colo rado alone 75,000 new homeseekere have settled themselves within a year. Twelve hundred homesteads in Kit Carson county, Colorado, were taken np in 1906, and this record was almost, if not qnite, equaled by other counties in other western states. Of these great bodies of set tlere, the larger proportion are from eastern states, aud are entirely un familiar with western conditions. Has No Fear of Hell. The other day a prominent rail road official just oouldu’t resist the temptation to tell us the following joke, and while we haveot his per mission to publish it, we are going to do so without mentioning any names: He had juat been berated for the faot that a certain oar of goods did not oome in, while another man but a minute before had attacked him because a freight train came in with out bringing some important mer chandise which had been on the road for a month or more; while others were complaining of one thing or another, the latter one telling him that he was surely going to make a straight shoot through the pneu matio tube for hell aa soon as he died. He admitted the fact, bat said hell had no terrors for him, not because he was getting it here, but because he thought that, being a good solic itor here, he would be able to induce Satan to order his ooal via the San ta Fe, and therefore he would never get it. —Garden City Herald. The New Year’s Woman’s Home Companion. President Roosevelt is the star contributor of the January Woman’s Home Companion. An official state ment written and signed by him in which he requests the Woman’s Home Companion to give "the wid est publicity to my previous utter ances on Child Labor” appears in the magazine.

It is unique iu that it shows some unsuspected facts of John D., and is graphically illustrated with hitherto unpublished photographs supplied by Mr. Rockefeller himself. Homer Davenport, the cartoonist, describes how he not only saw Abdul Hamid 11. the Sultan of Turkey, but made the only drawing extant of this mysterious ruler of a passing em pire. The alleged portraits hither published of the Saltan really are photographs of his brother. Mr. Davenport risked bis liberty and bis Arabian horses to get this exceed ingly rare and very remarkable draw ing of the Saltan for the Woman's Home Companion. The portrait haa a plaoe of honor in the January number. Dootor Edward Everett Hale sends a New-Year’s message to his hosts of friends, m his monthly editorial page.

Elizabeth Stuart Phelps publishes the first installment of a powerful serial entitled "The Sacred Fire;” Marie Van Vorst contributes a fascinating short story, "The Sen tinels;” Zona Gale is represented by a short story, "In the Time of the Chrysanthemums,” and there are in stalments of serials by Jean Webster and Jnliet Wilbor Tompkins. These are features are annsnally good. 20 YEARS AGO Notes from The Lamar Register of January 15,1887 A meeting was held to organize a G. A. R. Post at Lamar.
