City Water For the past week the Clay creek galleries have been supplying all the water needed to supply the city and flush the mains so as to carry off every vestige of the alkali surface water that has been pumped in the past month, and has also been storing up considerable surplus in the big city reservoir. There has been a run of 190 gallons per minute from the gal leries and under the present conditions the city gets it all. With a continua tion of normal conditions it will not be necessary to develop a very large extra supply of water, and that only for about four months. Teachers Reappointed The new school board met last week and reappointed the full staff of teachers from Supt. Momyer down on the strength of the good work of the past year. This action was merited and was the right move on the part of the board to show appreciation for the conscientious work done. We un derstand though there will be a num ber of vacancies later owing to ac ceptances of other positions and viola tions of the board’s rule in favor of single blessedness. Daring Glide Chas. P. Cleo entertained a large crowd on last Saturday afternoon by his daring glide down a wire across Main street from the roof of the Markham block hanging by his teeth.

He packed the the atre at both entertainments and all who had the privilege of seeing him pronounce it one of the best acts ever given here. New Alderman Thgcity council on Monday evening met and one of the matters coming before them was the vacancy on the board caused by the resignation of J. J. Hagaman of the 3rd ward, who has removed to Granada. The council promptly elected J. A. Downing of the 3rd ward to the place. Mr. Down ing is one of the pioneers of a business man of experience and suc cess, who is thoroughly familiar with the city’s needs is an enterprising cit izen and a man of broad principles and integrity. He will make an able addition to the city council and his influence will be felt. Anniversary of Lamar That a man does not have to be old to be an old timer here is dem Graduation Presents Now Is the Time Oar Store is the place to hay GRADUATION PRESENTS, WEDDING PRESENTS or any other kind of presents, in Diamonds, Watches, Necklaces, Broaches, Lockets, Charms, Etc. Fine line of Gilt Books, Poems, Standard Fiction, Etc. Good* and Price* Always Right Druggist N. N. McLEAN Jeweler The Old Reliable onstrated by a look backward to when Lamar was started. The city will be only 28 years old on Sunday and yet of those who were present at that memorable lot sale which was consid ered the birth of Lamar, only George W. Hunter is now a resident here. J. A. McDowell and family, M. J. Me- Millin, J. C. Ford, Wm. Dargie, A. N. Parrish, E. L. Koen and Henry Koen had been residents of this vicinity for several years and there are a few others who had been in what is now Prowers county previous to that date. The entire population though at that time could live in a single city block now easily. If you cut the time to between 27 and 28 years, however, there are possibly one hundred people still here who could qualify in the list, too many at any rate to attempt I to give an accurate list. HOT FINISH Game Between Militia and Postoffice Telephone Combine a Warm One On Sunday a large crowd turned out to see the Militia and P. 0.-T. & T. teams met on the diamond at As sociation park. For about four in nings it was a real ball game, and gave promise of being too good to be funny. The pitchers weakened then however and things began to happen. From then on it was a real enjoyable event giving a good laugh to the friends of both teams. They tied at 12 runs each in the 6th inning and on 14 in the seventh. Both were white washed in the eighth. The ninth opened with the militia at the bat and they promptly batted out two runs. The postoffice and telephone boys not to be outdone came right back and when their smoke lifted they were found to have put four runs across the plate and were declared the win ners.
