VOLUHB XXII. Lamar is “It!” A letter from one of the Denver visitors on the late “boosters’ train," acknowledging the receipt of the Register with the write ap of the visit to Lamar, contains the follow ing: "Lamar is o*rtaiu[y the crown jewel in the diadem that surrounds the Arkansas valley. We were all greatly pleased with our visit to your town, and we hope that our trip will result in mutual benefit to Colorado and her loyal oitizens." He Knew! "What is the spinal chord f" asked a Lamar school teaoher of her class in physiology the other day. For several minutes there was no evidenoe of intelligence among the pupils, but at last one little boy raised his hand. "Well, Johnny f’J said the teaoner. "I know," said the boy; "it is that long thing that runs through you and your head sits on one end and you sit on the other end." The teaoher made no comment, but gave him a perfect mark Hurd Hit by Panic. Since the late panio in the street ealled Wall we have had occasion to note the awful shrinkage in the value of our stocks in the offioe safe. Two shares in the Sugar City City ohamber of oommeroe (inc.) have shriveled up until we can’t give ’em away. One hundred shares in the Gold Biiok Mining Co. (which we accumulated on an advertising oontraot some years ago) have de preciated far below the par value of a meal ticket. Our block of stock in Dave Diggory’s base ball team has shrunken badly on aooonnt of heavy liquidation, or maybe profit taking. Call money with us this morning is worth 1000 per oent. Now is the oritioal moment to subscribe.—Sugar City Gazette. Different, But Better. F. W. Fotte, who has the contract tor the ereotion of the $50,000 hos pital at New Fort Lyon, came across a newspaper of anoient date while olearing away rubbish in one of the old buildings at the fort. It is a oopy of the Chisago Times and its date is May 28, 1809. It is a very different looking paper to the Times printed in 1907. This old paper is eight pages and seven oolumns to the page, and there are no big types used on any page. Ten pages are devoted to general markets, lake and river news, and one column to scan dal and divorce rot. A half oolumn informs the leader of the wonderful performances of a Frenchman riding a velocipede (now bioyole) on a smooth board floor in a large public building. Four columns of editorials lambaste publio officials and informs the reader how the government should be run, and a few lines tell of a lynohing in Missouri of a man who stole a few head of cattle. News items are soaroe and so are adver tisements. The paper is of good quality and the print is dear and dean.—Bent County Democrat. George’s comparison of the Times in ’O9 with the Times in ’O7 is good, with the exception that the Times has not been issued for about twelve years. George must have compared "sight unseen." Greet Valley The following is from the Kansas •City Daily Drovers’ Telegram of Oc tober 17: S. C. Gregory of Granada, Colo., is one of the proeperous stock farm ers in what is known as the oanta loupe and sugar beet distriot of the Arkansas Valley. During the six years that he has lived there Mr. Gregory has witnessed many ohanges, especially in the prosperity of the country. When he went there he oould have bought some of the beet land along the Arkansas for S3O an acre, but that same land brings very readily $l5O now. "One hundred carloads of cantaloupes ware shipped from Granada and vioinity last sea son," said Mr. Gregory. "Just im agine a yield of this summer pro duct shipped out in a few weeks’ time. Then when it comes to sugar beets we are away up in the front. The industry is growing very fast.

Remember the old reliable McLean Brothers, Lamar, Colorado et it. The demand for them seems to be ahead of the supply all the time Besides converting them into sugar, which ia the leading product from them, they also furnish a great amount of good feed for cattle and sheep. The crop this year is a big one. Sugar beet land is in good de mand at very high prices." History Repeats The old story about history re peating itself applies well to the Ar kansas valley at times. A perusal of the oolumns of papers published twenty years ago shows that nearly every town along the valley had a cross railway mapped out, and that condition prevails again just now. The striking point about the inusb room roads' today is that they all start at your own town on the Santa Fe and end at some village on the prairies of Texas. The similarity is carried out also in the amount of stock, bonds, oash bonus and right of way that the oitizens of the fa vored town must oome forward with. La Junta, Las Animas, Lamar, Syr acuse and Garden City have been fa vored with propositions from these generous capitalists, and no doubt the smaller towns will be "jollied" by these gentlemen when the larger places have turned them down. We don’t want to knock on any proposi tion that will help the valley, but these gentlemen are offering to build more railways than even this great farming region oan support. Absurd Proposition. Senator Frazier of Tennessee thinks that if Bryan is nominated on a proper platform he will have a good chanoe of eleotion. But how does he expeot to get Bryan on a proper platform ?—The Philadelphia Press. Ganderbone’s November Forecast Copyrighted 1907 by C. H. Rieth. Long we’vs waited for November, when the winds are swift and chill, when the first-come snows of winter drift along the window-sill; when the hunter finds pneumonia waiting ior him at the lake, and the pies we get resemble those that mother used to make. Everybody fond of minoe pies Danoe nimbly, feeling good; Now and then an old subscriber Comes up with a load of wood. Winter’s coming, and the bad boys In the schoolroom sing and danoe, For the teaoher cannot feaze them When they wear their winter pants. November was the ninth month in the old Roman calendar, and gets its name from novem, meaning nine. The ber, whioh we would spell burr, was added by Nimrod, the quail hunter. He had an Irish setter with whioh he hunted in Novem, and the dog got so many burrs on his tail that he called the month November. Like all burrs, this one stuok.

SIMON, Proprietor paper bills. Sagittarius the Archer is the zo diacal sign for November. His name is from the Latin word sagitta, mean ing arrow, and is typical of the sud den oold shooting into the earth and oausing the turnip to run for the cel lar like a whitehead. From the first to the twenty-second of the month the sun will be in the constellation of Scorpio, which is Mr. Bryan's un lucky constellation, and will make it difficult to tell whether he is coming or going. From the 22d to the 30th the sun will be in the constellation of Sagittorius, in whioh Mr. Taft and the white house are at aphelion, and he will look as if he would finish about fifth. On the 14th the enn will rise with the transit of Mercnry on its disk. For 3 hours and 36 minutes the planet will describe a short ohord on the northern limb of the son, caus ing money to run to its hole in Wall street, and Standard Oil to tell every thing. Meronry, which will be an eveuing star during the first two weeks of the month, will tire of lovers and buggy rideis on the 14th, and will be a morning star for the rest of the month. It will cast enough light on key-holes for sports to find them them without using a funnel, and will look with contempt into the chambers of mollycoddles and milk sops. The girl who sued a summer uibq Where cool sea breeze* course, Will keep on suing—in the courts And capture her divorce; The watered railroads will oontrive To have a few more wrecks, And the press will print more lists of names With broken backs and necks. The loving maid will feed her beau on good dyspepsia fudge, the farmer with the smokehouse will touch off his hick’ry smudge, the proclamation will come out, and the hired man will put the turkey’s head upon the block and amputate his foot. The lucky days of the month will be the fifth, eleventh, thirteenth, wenty-seoond and twenty-fifth. Any of these is a good day upon which to begin a trial marriage. The uolucky days will be the sixth, fifteenth, twentieth, twenty-ninth and thirtieth. Cover the ohimney up on all of these days, or the stork may bring you a pair of twins. The day to bay min ing stock will be the thirty-first. This will be a very busy month. The trusts will try and arrange it so nobody oan live, the moon will be full on the 19th, and the wolf will take up its winter quarters on the front poreh.
