VOLUME XXII. Wiley Items. From Wiley Journal. The telegraph line is now complet ed from Lamar to Wiley. The Perry MoGlave place was sold last week to a Greeley party for $75 per acre. M. L. Gonwell and family and Mr. Ziegler and wife of Lamar were in Wiley on New Year’s day. The party were taking a pleasure ride in Mr. Gonwell’s new Anto which they were enjoying hugely. They visited oar new opera house and took great In terest in the stage and expressed themselves as well pleased with the entire make-up. The Journal offico was honored by a oall frem the party. A meeting of the American Sooiety of Equity was held at the opera house on Saturday December 28tb. The annual eleotion was held and the following officers were ohosen: Pres ident, Arthur Carver; Vioe-pres. Fred Williams; Secretary, H. O. Hainline; Treasurer, Don Lamson. Hereafter the society will be called, Farmers’ Sooiety of Equity with J. A. Everett as national president. A Good Catch. Harry Cline captured a large gray wolf on Plum creek the first of the week. It was lassoed after being run down on horsebaok. It was brought to Granada and will be sold to some eastern zoological garden if anyone deaires it.—Granada Times. Good Idea. The Providence Journal thinks that if Democracy finds itself unable to get along without Bryan it should go the whole hog at the Denver con vention and make it: “For president W. J. Bryan of Nebraska; for vice president, W. J. Bryan of Florida.” If too much Bryan is impossible,then make it Bryan and Bryan. The ob jection is raised that Bryan of Flor ida is under the conatuitional limit of age, but that need not tie the hands of the Denver convention; he will be old enough by the time he ia elected!— Ex. Protect The Beet Sugar. J. B. Case, president of the Trans Mississippi congress, is preparing to go to Washington to work before the house and senate in opposition to the proposed legislation admitting Phil ippine sugar to the United States free of duty, says a Kansas exchange. The Trans-Mississippi congress at its recent session at Muskogee, passed a resolution declaring against free Philippine sugar, on the theory that it would destroy the beet sugar in dustry whiuh is being built up in the west. Mr. Case and the members of the legislative committee of the Trans-Mississippi congress will do everything possible at Washington to unite the members of the railroad congress from Western states in op position to the proposed change in the tariff schedule on sugar. A par ticular effort will be make to organ ise the members from Kansas, Colo redo and Nebraska against the bill as each of these states is a producer of sugar. Mr. Case says that it oan b«- demonstrated that the admission of sugar from the Philippines free of duty will seriously cripple the grow ing sugar beet industry in western Kansas and will probably operate to prevent the operation of two or three new refineries similar to the million dollar plant recently erected at Gar den City. He hopes to have a meet ing of the Kansas congressional de legation to consider the matter im mediately after his arrival in Wash ington. —National Farmer. A Small Mistake. An editor in Kansas who never 'thought punctuation amounted to much is now defendant in a libel suit because he published an item about •Hwo young men who went to the Teacher’s Institute, and after they left, the girls got drunk.” The com ma should have gone after “the girls” but as it is the girls have gone after the editor.—Osborn News. Believes It Anyway. A olergyman happened to tell his son one Saturday afternoon what les son he would read in churoh the next morning. The boy got hold of his father’s Bible, found the lesson’s place, and glued the connecting pag -es together. In consequence the The Lamar Register olergeman read to his flock the fol lowing Sunday that “when Noah was 120 years old he took unto himself a wife, who was”—here he turned the page—“l4o cubits long, 40 cubits wide, built of gopher wood and cov ered with pitch in and out.” After reading the passage, the clergyman read it again to verify it. Then push ing back his speotaoles, he looked gravely at the congregation and said: “My friends, this is the first time I ever read that in the Bible, but I aooept it as evidence of the assertion that we are fearfully and wonderful ly made.”—Ex. Prowers Items The Phillips Investment Co. have erected a new wind-mill in their pasture north of the Prowers bridge. Boy Evans has returned from La Junta and will resume his duties as night operator. The Twenty-four-Girole ranch is shipping several oarloads of hay from here. Mrs. Harry Eierly of Gardner, Kan, is visiting her father, Mr. Myers.

May Valley IteMs. The Heath Bros a oar of cattle and the Rose boys a doable deok of lambs were the consignments from here to the river markets last week and will be on sale this week. The shipping rates have again been ahanged on the Arkansas Valley rail road and are entirely prohibitive. Our grain is being hauled from the old line. “How not to do it” as the Barnacles in the Circumlocution office that Dickens tells of seems to be characteristic of the way affairs are run at this time by offioiais of the new road. Fire recently destroyed an eld landmark, the old dwelling house first built by Jim Stepenhson,and ad ditions later by W. H. Wells at that time owner, on the farm now owned by Sam Sponsor. The handsome new house was in danger but not seriously damaged at the time of the tire. The insurance company carry ing the risk adjusted the loss last week. E. J. Wagner returned from Gir ard, Kansas, last Thursday accom panied by a bride whom he married the day previous at that city. A large number of our young people repaired direot to Mr. Wagner’s horns after adjournment of our literary <ooiety last Friday and to use the mildest term in discribing it gave the newly wedded pair a “Serenade”. All were invited in and every good thing that heart of serenader could desire was given them by the gener ous host and after the] sing ing of several songs these self in vited young people returned to their homes fully appreciating the eslim atable qualities of this worthy couple. Prof. J. W. Griffith and wife of Granada visited friends in this valley during the holidays. They are both engaged in teaching at the Imperial sohool northeast of Granada. Mr. W. B. Waldo, teaching at Carlton, and his friend, Mr. Funk, were visiting with friends and}hunt ing geese at the big lakes last week. The sport was great and they bagged a number of fine birds. Bio A wooden shoe danoe, when it is done as only Sam Kline and Johnny Kiefer oan do it, is one of the most enjoyable specialties that eome on the comedy stage. Kline and Kiefer who are with “The Show Girl” com pany, whioh comes to The Opera House, on Friday Jan 10 have long been popular favorites on the big vaudeville circuits. Manager John P. Goring presents them as a special attraction with “The Show Girl.” ow«3xjs.x* 2sTJc arsrxrss cjovn* r LAMAR. PROWERS COUNTY. COLORADO, WEDNESDAY. JANUARY 8. 1908.
