Whereas, On this occasion of the dedication of the Public Library tc Its owners, the citizens of the Town of Lamar, and the public generally on this 24th day of May. A. D. 190*. we desire to acknowledge with grat itude and appreciation the generosity of Andrew Carnegie whose beaefi cence has provided the beautiful and complete building for our library, and Whereas, The artistic improvement of the city park in which the library building is situated, and the ground* belonging to the public library is due to the liberality of General Willlan J. Palmer of Colorado Springs, Colo, who contributed the designs and sent his foreman to direct the work o the improvement, and Whereas, The means so providet have been brought to such success ful conclusion only through the laboi thought and skill of the member, of the Board of Directors of tht Public Library and the Mayor ano Board of Trustees of the Town oi Lamar, under whose control and di rection the site was purchased, ano the work was begun and brought tc completion, now, therefore, the cltl sens of Lamar do hereby. Resolve, That they owe, and dc now tender their sincere and apprecl ative thanks severally to those whe by their gifts and their labors have made possible, designed and finally completed this beautiful building, ant the establishment of a public library therein, and the artistic improvement of the park in which it Is located Where the Credit Belongs Denver had an honest election on May 19, the first in all probability in thirty years. All parties, even the de feated ones, admit this fact, anc all are praising the condition. But no word of praise has yet been of fered for the man who made thh condition possible, and the very pa pers and citizens, who are bragging the loudest about the accomplishet fact, were the most bitter and seven in their condemnation of him at the Without the work of Gabbart in the interest of honest elec tlons three years ago the condition! of last Tuesday would have been iin possible, and the election would have been just as corrupt as any of those in the past. Judge Gabbart, realizing that only radical measures, could meet tne ag gravated condition existing in Den ver, brought the guilty men. whe were protected by the district court** because they had by fraud elected the judges, before tbe bar of the supreme court and proved that there was away to administer punishment to them. Patterson, who when the other fellows are In office always fa vors honest elections, took theli cases to the supreme court of the United Btates, but with the only re suit that he had the privilege of pay Ing an extra SIOOO fine himself. From that time every election crook and every beneficiary of crook ed elections in the state has been constant in season and out In their abuse of Judge Gabbart, and Patter son the loudest of any. Very little credit has ever been given him for The Lamar Register this work, although without his cour ageous action this honest election would have been impossible. In fact the attacks have been so bitter that it leads one to believe that the only real opposition to election frauds, is that each one opposes the other fel lows stealing the election. The people outside of Denver, how ever, fully appreciated the work ol Judge Gabbart, and they forced his renomination and then elected him. An Ideal All-Around Newspaper.

One of our Missouri farmers, who has made a success of raising mules here, was visited by a stranger the other day. The latter was much Im pressed by the evidences of prosper ity visible on every band, and re marked: “Of coarse you understand the bus iness well, for It is said that Mis sourians stand at the head in rais ing mules.” “Well, stranger,” remarked the far mer, “if you knew much about tbe critters, you would know that wat the only safe place to stand.” The College as She Is. The college chapel was thronged with admiring parents and friends who had come to witness the com mencement exercises. Amid an ex pectant hush the venerable president arose and summoned the graduates to receive their hard-earned diplomas. The sturdy football team were a warded the coveted sheepskins, while the wall echoed with the applause and cheers. The liths track athletes In running attire received their well merited degrees, and the Varsity crew, with oars in hand, gracefully accepted their honors. As the exercises were concluding and the orchestra about to play, a member of the faculty stepped reluc tantly forward and touched the pres ident’s arm, whispering in his ear at the same time. In apparent annoy ance the dignitary turned to the au dience. "Pardon me, ladles and gentlemen, but I have made a slight omission. 1 understand that one student should receive the degree of bachelor of arts. Will he kindly step forward as quickly as possible7” A shrinking young man stepped for ward apologetically, a diploma was thrust in his hand, and he was haugh Lily waved aside, while the orches tra struck up a two-step.—Ex. The Mail Order Menses. Tbe following applies so well to every community, that we have taken the liberty of changing the name of the town and appropriating It: The merchants of this city who are joining in the fight against the mail order houses should have the sym pathy of every citizen of the commu nity. There Is no one in Lamar who has not been benefitted In some way by coming here. Those who come seek ing health have especial reason for gratitude in helping to support and keep up the town, instead of sending money away. And those who are in In business here, or those who are employed here and receive Lamar money regularly, have even greater reason to contribute their business to the general welfare of the com munity.

No live community was ever built up by indulging In this mail order trading. The way to make things lively is to keep the cash at home and keep It moving. A prosperous business community means prosperity all over the town. Boost for Umar and not for Chicago. Prosecution Ordered. At a regular monthly meeting of the state stock inspection beard yes terday there were a number of coin plainta of cattlemen in the eastern part of tire state who failed to com ply with the order of the board to dip their cattle for mange. The board decided it is time to bring these men to time and Dr. Lamb was ordered to proceed to file complaints and bring thesevlolators of the law intc court. Dr. I<amb will get busy at once and a number of cases will be commenced within a few days. While a majority of the cattlemen are com plying with the order of the board and are dipping their cattle, a few men are paying no attention. In this way the mange is kept on the range. These men will be arrested and fined unless they get busy promptly.—Ex. Explanations Demanded. During the recent production of the “Merry Widow’’ In Denver, a Umar business man thought to agreeably surprise his wife, and telegraphed a Denver friend to secure tickets for them. The answering telegrm which was delivered at the house and read by his wife, was as follows: “Nothing doing with the widow un til the tenth. Will that do you?” He hasn’t been able to square things sufficiently yet, so that he can go to Denver without taking his wife along. 20 YEAR AGO Notes from The Lamar Register of May 26, 1868 Mort Strain and the mumps have been having It nip and tuck the past week.
