The com ply is now at work constructing an umense reservoir and IrrrJigatJon jystem which wIU reclaim 22.000 lores of government land under the Carey Act. For full particulars you /can read the article in this issue. I The enterprise has been under con templation by several enterpi '.sting business men for several years, ami has at last reached a point where It is a certainty. It was started toy Or. W. D. Purse, and taken up and financed by Messrs. Bancroft and Bberle of the Arkansas Valley land Headquarters. The officers of the company are Lincoln Bancroft, president; T. S. Redd, vice-president; H. H. Bberle. treasurer; \V. D. Purse, secretary; C. W. Beach* chief engineer; L. >M. Markham, engineer; Granby Hillyer. attorney. The company has platted oit the town of Two Buttes in Baca county, and the preparation already .jeing made for business houses and resi dences there make it evident that it will be by far the leading town of the county. Among those chosing land are many owners of fine Irrigated farm: under the established ditches, am' the.lr experience has proved to them that there is no surer road to fortune' than getting Irrigated land while min imum prices prevail. It ib difficult to get in on the' ground floor on one of these enter prises at this late date, and no one wishing to establish, a new home should allow this great opportunity to pass. The area of government land that can be Irrigated is rapidly decreasing, and it will soon be tak en. entirely. There will be few If any propositions In the future where one can obtain an irrigated farm at such a low price and such easy terms GANDERBONES FORECAST FOR JUNE. The- brimming mill-pond full of boys. The springboard and -the slide. The sly Ibeef-e hewer on the Job, And the pants securely tied. The dripping and the tell-tale hair. The scurry -home at noon* And then, what Paddy gave the drum —Not yet, but June. The wedding and the wedding guests. The presents and the raiment. The father proffering the bride. And the much embarrassed claimant The dinner, and the shoes and rice. The deer old honeymoon. And Love’s young dream until they wake— Not yet, buit June. The end of school, the Joyous shout. The essay and oration. Some samples of bad grammar by The Board of Education. All standing singing “Auld Lang Syne ’ ’ Or some such fitting tune. And two young men and thirty glrls- Not yet, but June. The picnic and the happy kids. The dinner In the shade. The scream when little Johnny Smith Falls in the lemonade. The soulmates strolling hand In hand Not married yet, but soon. And the little red-hugs at the bat — Not yet, but June. June was dedicated by the Romans to love and marriage, and was there fore named for Juno whose experlenc ■was thought to more nearly typify that of the average married woman •than anything that had happened up to that time. Jiuno married Jupiter, one of the best and most exemplary of gods; glv lag Mm her simple trust and all the rope compatible with a reasonable en Joyment of liberty though married. Nevertheless, they had not been mar ried long enough even to feel sure that they were suited to each other, when, the bride made the terrible dis covery that the co-owner of her wedd Ing presents and the man who was to flag the family breadwagon had ant afftinUty. Fortunately, though It had proven to be with gods, as it Is with men. It was not with goddesses as It Is wilth women. Juno had a come-back ■coming to her, nad she got busier than a mother robin rustling worms. •She turned her husbnnd’s affinity In to a heifer, and set Argus to watch over her as shepherd. Argue had a hundred eyes, and do what he could, -Jupiter could not catch him asleep The Lamar Register all around and steal the heifer away from .h4m. As a last resort he sent Mercury to slay him. After trying everything else. Mercury tokl liim that Bryan was elected, and he fell dead. Juno took the eyes of Argus and set them in the tail of a pea cock, where we may see them Ln any fine morning in the country to re mind us of that oldest of domestic tragedies inseparable from the his tory of June. The wedtliing march wild fill the land, And the quail will get to pdpdn The Muse will rouse the village band And Patten’s' wheat will riipen. The old self-binder will come out And sing a few sweet stanzas. And the college graduate will shout And hilt the trail for Kansas.

There’s nothing like It anywhere upon -the earth or over, the air i» fresh and fragrant with the sweet breath of the clover, the birds are -vhiglng operas, and the poultry i* a vjnning, and the old familiar dd mer bell sets, everybody running. There ;nay be men In Marathons that run a mile a minute, but It’s a question if St. Yves or Longboat would be in it If he were working In a field hough many tdmes a winner, al l a buiK-1. of twenty harvest hands knock ed off to go to dinner. It’a simply wonderful the way A harvest hand gets going— You look at him one instant and You see hint calmly mowing. You wouldn’t think if forty bells Should ring that he would hear them. Or If ten banquets beckoned him That he would venture near them. He looks as whipped out os a rag, * And dead to all attraction. — But you want to hear the dinner bell To see hla triple action. You want to see him double up As if be had the colic. And tear the field up setting out Ui»on that little frolic. It Is as if the fumes of beans Had reached him. or the vision Of chicken had appeared to him. Or else that some Elysdan Mirage had shown him corn cakes, nie.
