BIG BAND HERE. 341st Field Artillery Hand from Camp Funston Spends Day in Lamar. The crack band of Camp Funston, the 341st Field Artillery Bund, com posed entirely of Colorado boys, has | been out on a three weeks campaign | for the Liberty Bond committee of ; Kansas City district and covered a I large part of the state. They were unable to reach this valley until the campaign was over, but owing to the splendid showing made in the valley they decided to give a few concerts anyway. They stopped Tuesday after noon at Rocky Ford and Tuesday night at lui Junta, and as Prowers county made the best showing of all counties in the valley they gave luimar con certs both afternoon and evening. The boys arrived here on No. S nt noon. On the train they were the center of attraction as a few of them in going through the train caught sight of u mustache which too closely resembled Kaiser Wilhelm’s hiresutc ornaments to be pleasant for a khaki soldier to look upon, and as the wearer proved too unreasonable to cut it off himself they took it off for him with the aid of a pair of shears and much pro fanity on his part. j The band as an attraction proved all that was claimed for it, and many of the numbers were of the highest class. The drummer especially won the hearts of the crowd with his im itation of a train U aving the depot bound for Berlin. All the numbers were fine and the enthusiasm of the ! crowd was shown in.their hearty ap plause and the liberality of the col lection taken up for the Camp Fund. The band chaplain, who was in charge, made an earnest patriotic talk to the people and warmly thanked them for their liberality as he announced that the luiinar collection was the largest taken up on the road although they had visited Denver, Pueblo. Colorado Springs, and other large rities. The collection here amounted to over five hundred dollars. The band boys were much pleased with the town and all had invitations to dinner in the evening, hut the car nival proved too great an attraction for many of them and they spent the dinner hour down then'. They left at midnight and go direct to the camp as this was their last stop. Nearing Completion. The swimming pool will soon be open to the public now as the big pool 50 x 100 feet is completed and the dressing rooms and other build ings rapidly being fitted up. There j will be seats under the trees at the east end of the pool for visitors, and 'every arrangement made for the com fort and convenience of the public. The eastern part of the pool is so shallow that little children can with safety play in it, and it increases in depth until at the west it is nine feet. The pool will be known as the Red Cross Swimming Pool and all profits during the time of the war will go to that organization. It was promoted and put on its feet by a committee of the Y. M. B. A., and that organiza tion will help boost it along. It will be run strictly on a business basis and in order to keep down loafing the regular charge of 25 cents will be made to all men visitors regardless of whether they go in bathing or not. Ladies accompanying children will not be charged. It will at all times be in charge of some responsible person whose duty it is to see that order and good behavior prevail. The water is furnished free for two years by the Union Ice & Storage Co., and will be ran in from their plunt through a four inch pipe and will be delivered at u temperature of 90 degrees. Carnival. The Parker shows have been at tracting the nightly attendance of most of Lama>’s populati >n this wees. They arrived here on Sunday after noon and the first performance on Monday night was largely attended. It proved to be* the best carnival show that ever struck the town and the crowds have been on the incrcas ■ every afternoon and night. There are many real attractions both in the performances and the evhibits, and a large variety of amusements that seem to please all visitors. The high dive by Dare Devil Wilson is easily the* leading attraction of the show. ■ ■— Wins Championship. The championship medal of the I.a mar rifle range is now worn by Dr. John D.

Pulp and silage are undoubtedly very important feeds for dairying. Nevertheless, cows cun be held to a good flow of milk if these feeds are not obtainable. Mr. Henry of McClave ran out of both pulp and silage before the tester arrived on the last trip but substituted a feed of corn and bran. The cows have not fallen off to any extent and his herd I stands next to the two highest in the average production. Mr. Henry milks at six o’clock both morning and even ing. This regularity undoubtedly aids in production. ] Arkansan Valley Cow Testing Ass’n.

A Genuine Pleasure It’s a pleasure to sell a medicine that brings people back to tell about the good it does them. YVe have sold more Tanlac and heard it prais ed more than any other medicine in the same length of time. If you are suffering from stomach trouble, indigestion, or any of the other common ills, get u bottle of Tanlac and experience its wonderful curative powers. N. N. McLEAN Druggist Jeweler The Old Reliable (Est. Jan. 1895) The Iluy Right and Sell Right Store. So many say "Yes, I’d feed grain if milk were higher and grain cheaper.” The price of milk has nothing to do with the economy of grain feeding. All that there is to be considered are the price of grain and the wuy in which the cow responds to that particular ration. The results of testing associa tions all over the eoiuitry show that where grain is fee e: n fully, using a scales and milk chart, it is the most economical way to feed high produc ing cows. The people who do not make grain feeding pay either have poor jeows or follow' the old habit of fecd j ing “a measure to a cow’’ regardless j of production. I George Shell, owner of the Hoosier Dairy ut Holly, continually has u high I producing herd and is u good grain feeder. Mr. Shell keeps a dairy milk record sheet und feeds grain to the cows that respond sufficiently to it. His favorite grain feed is corn chop and oats (ground) mixed equal parts. Probably these two together with al falfa hay and silage form as nearly a balanced ration as can be found in this section. Holly is rapidly getting into pure bred stock. Mr. Partridge and Mr. Lconurd of the Model dairy have been in the east buying pure-oreds for the members of the cow club. A calf club has been formed ut Holly by the county agent. Only pure-bred calve* will be purchased. Mr. Jensen of Holly is building a new barn und silo, and is increasing his herd by fifty cows. Harold J. Ryan, Tester.
