McLEAN Jeweler ✓ The Old Reliable The Buy Right and (E»t. Jan. 1895) Sell R.ght Store More Yard Room The Santa Fe has notified all those leasing purt of the railroad right of way in Lamar that they will have to | find new quarters in sixty days, as j the company will need the grounds. The Lamar station does the biggest j business of any point for a hundred miles in either direction now, and more room has become one of the im perative necessities. Many new im provements are being contemplated by the railroad officials to facilitate the handling of the big business which comes from the manufacturing and farming industries of Lamar and sur rounding territory. New Industry A new corporation has been organ ized for the purpose of building and operating a bean elevator to handle the immense crops of the once lowly but not aristocratic Mexican bean. Thousands of acres are being planted this year and the immense crops that have been brought in by many farmers who planted last year shows what a money maker the crop is for the dry farmers. One man near Springfield raised 60,000 pounds on 120 acres and sold it for £4,800; while another brought in a string of wag tins loaded with SI7OO worth this week. ! Stock in the new elevator company is I selling rapidly anti it will be ready for I handling the coining season’s crop. Two Women Burned Fire destroyed the home of J. A. Barrett about twenty-five miles south west of Umar last Thursdhy morn- i ing. It is not known just how it j started but when the occupants were 1 awakened it was well under way and ( barred the way to the room where ! Mrs. Barrett’s mother and grand- ! mother were sleeping. Mr. and j Mrs. Barrett and their little and then Mr. Barrett took the older j women out through the window of their room, not before they were I badly burned. The house was quite a distance from any of the neighbors and it was some time before help arrived. As soon as possible Mr. Bar ret brought the women to the Lamar hospital, but they were beyond help further than merely relieving their sufferings. Mrs. Althea Plummer, aged 83, died that evening and Mrs. Sarah Kendall, aged 55, the next morning. The funeral services of both were held on Sunday at the un tiertaking parlors., Mr. Barret was badly burned about the hands and feet in getting the women out of the burning building, and they lost all j their improvements anti furniture. Big Acreage ■ All the seed houses in Ijtrnar arc being overtaxed to supply the dry land farmers with seed for the coni , ing crop season. It is evident this early in the season that in spite of last year’s dry season the acreage planted will exceed that of last year jby several hundred per cent, anti the lesson of last year has not been wast ed as most of the new comers are buy ing the kinds of seed that best meet the soil and other condition- of their i sections. The dry land territory sur- 1 rounding lamar will be a much larger and more intelligent test this year than at any previous time in the his tory of the country. In a large mea sure this test will be t£e chief factor in settling the status of these lands for some years to come.
