charged with larceny of live stock,
both horses and cattle. Had it not
been for the rapid appearance of
bondsmen the jail would have been
overflowing. The cases if proven take
on an added interest because some of
the purloiners of live stock had the
j temerity to sell their loot to the sher
iff himself. The first question asked
of any man from that section when he
' comes to Lamar now is “what have
, they got you for.”
Another large addition to the Prow
ers county stock of holsteins was
made this week when Hayes Williams
arrived with 110 fine heifers from
Highlands, Illinois. There have been a
series of heavy rains there to break
the drouth the past week, and it is
probable that good stock will be hard
er to buy from now on. Lamar is
rapidly becoming one of the great
holstein centers and will soon have a
supply second to none. The guaran
tee pledged the Helvetia company is
now in the country, but of course only
a small part as yet are milkers.
There will be a special program and
celebration at the Methodist church
next Sunday evening when the last
evidences of the debt incurred to
build the fine new church will be
burnt. The congregation is to be con
gratulated on this happy result and it
is no wonder they feel like celebrat
ing. One of the features of the pro
gram will be the reading of the first
church subscription ever raised in La
mar being for the building of the old
church. This paper has been lost for
some time but was found recently by
L. Wirt Markham.
Ready for Winter Storage
W. S. Sidlow came down from the
dredge camp at Cheraw this week to
spend a couple of days with Lamar
friends. He reports fine progress on
the Fort Lyon inlet canal, and says
it looks as if Adobe reservoir would
be ready to receive water by the mid
dle of December, which will be ample
time for winter storage. They are
now working at station 2040, leaving
335 stations to be excavated before
the dredge reaches Adobe mpervoir.
The last nine months they have aver
aged 90 stations per month, so the
estimate seems most probable. This
equals 1.7 miles per month. Since the
first of last November 930,000 cubic
yards have been excavated, and the
amount yet to be excavated amounts
to 320,000 cubic yards. The width of
the canal on top is 65 feet after pass
ing the intake of the Horse Creek
reservoir. This fine progress will be
good news to our farmers as it in
sures a heavy supply of water storage
and more certain supply than even
the great Fort Lyon has been able to
give before. Engineer Powell is high
ly pleased with rapid progress being
