At 10:30 last Sunday night, Sam uel Kemper while passing down the main street of our town was run over by the Paradox “twain.” Though he was quite a while geting home, it seems that he was not ser iously injured. Mr. Shipman sold four of his horses last week. X. Brought to Time. The Santa Fe railroad was made to sit up and take notice last week by the seizure of two of their engines by Sheriff Thomas, as mentioned in last week’s Register, and were glad to qniokly arrange a compromise by whioh they paid $28,808.80 into the county treasury. They had preyious ly been very indifferent on the sub ject, refusing to answer several let ters from Prowers county’s attorney, Judge Northoutt, but County Tress urer Adkins and the oounty commis sioners on his advice had quietly se sured competent men to handle and take care of the engines when cap tured and the blow came just after their last refusal to answer an insist ent letter from Judge Northoutt. A couple of engines under present con ditions can earn more than the amount of the taxes in a few days on the Santa Fe, and the officials were glad to get into oommnnioa The Lamar Register BRUSHES!

The engines were released, and a large slice of the oounty’s annual interest charge will be saved. There were several trriua in at the time the seizuie was made, and as an example of the wonderful ability to kill time now employed on the line, it is said that the engines seized by the Sheriff, with tires drawn and waiting for a compromise to be arranged by the attorneys, were the first ones that got out of town. Prowers County Growing. Surveys are now being made with a view of extending the Lamar ca nal on to its old time terminus at Butte oreek, mud possibly on to the state line. This will add from 10,- 000 to 20,000 acres to the irrigated area of the oounty on the south of the river, and cause another large addition to oar population and as sessed valuation. The greatest benefit will be to tbe town of Granada, and it will prob ably cause the building of a sugar factory there ia the near future, as the ditch and a large portion of the lands uuder it are now owned by tbe American Beet Sugar Co. The nat ural conditions have made it harder to construct canals for irrigating purposes on the sonth side of the Arkansas river in Prowers county than on the north side, bat it now looks as if the great enhancement of values in irrigated lands jwill make it possible to bring almost as wide a strip of country on the south side under cultivation as has heretofore been on the north of the river. The Arkansas Valley Sugar Beet & Irrigated Land Co., have again thrown open their lands in Prowers oounty east of Horse creek, and are locating quite a number of new com ers there, and this also means a con siderable increase to our farming lands. These lands had been aban doned daring years when tbe condi tions of the canal made water often scarce, but now with the big reser voirs full and the excellent condi tion of the canal it will be easy to deliver water dear to the state line. The wave of Campbell farmers coming west for tbe past two years has filled up western Kansas and is beginning to slop over into Prowers county along the state line in in creasing foroe, and this bids fair to soon establish quite a large farming population in the county outside of irrigation. There is every indica tion that great as has been tbe im promement in Prowers county tbe past year and large as the increase has been in population, both will be small when compared with what is to come in 1907. Contract Let. Messrs. Lyons & Axtell, contract ors of Pueblo, have been awarded the contract for building the hand some new Methodist church. Their bid of $12,300 was considerably un orpisrxij 2TEnr3PX.TSi» ©** riio-urxißa oottmtt LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY.

The basement work already done has cost about SI,OOO, and the memor ial windows to be pat in will cost about SI,OOO more, making the total cost of the building about $14,300. It is estimated that it will require about SI7OO for seats and furnish ings, bringing the total cost up to about SIO,OOO. The ohurch when completed will be the finest in tbe valley east of Pueblo, and will be an ornament and source of pride to our people. It will have a seating ca pacity of between 400 and 500 in cluding the galleries. The contract ors are ready to go ahead with the work just as soon as they can get the materials on the ground bat in the present condition of the Santa Fe railroad that is not an easy problem to estimate- The building will be constructed of cement blocks up to tbe range line and above that of Pu eblo pressed brick, aud will be a very imposing structure. 20 YEARS AGO Notes from The Lamer Register off January 22, 1887 A gold mine has just been dis coyered near Swift City, but the Register is forbidden to mention tbe exact location as yet.
