DEFIANCE AND MARQUIS BEST SPRING WHEAT Former Makes Nice Bread But lhe Latter is Sometime* Desirmua Because of General Healthiness. “What is the best spring wheat?" comes a flood of inquiries to the State Agricultural College. Accord ingly Agronomist Professor Alvin Kezer was interviewed. He replied: “We have no one best spring wheat for most Colorado conditions. For a series of years Defiance, which was originated at the Experiment Station, has been slightly the best spring wheat yielder. Marquis has been next to De fiance in yield. Defiance, with dry season at harvest, will give slightly greater returns per acre. But Defi ance has a rather weak straw and lodges badly if it is wet during har vest. It is likely to rust at harvest under the same conditions. In the past, Defiance has sold as well on the market as Manquis because it has mostly been milled for a biscuit and pastry flour market. Marquis pro duces a wheat of better quality and grades, better according to the Go\- ernment grades. It matures earlier, has a stiffer straw and, accordingly, doe* not suffer as badly if there is rainy weather at or near harvest time. Defiance and Marquis are the two best wheats in the spring wheat class that we have at present. The acreage of Marquis is increasing and that of Defiance is decreasing, largely because of the earlier maturity and stiffer straw of the Marquis, coupled with a slightly better quality, altho it is out yielded by Defiance.” Masonic Classes At the regular communication of Lamar Lodge No. 90 A.

If a rancher kept 48 good draft horses idle on his ranch when there was need of raising crops he w’ould be called insane. But these ships lie idle when the world needs transportation of our crops and products to the markets of the world. They represent an investment of $12,000,000 of your hard-earned taxes and the government is supposed to re present you. But the government is terrorized by the International Seaman's Union head ed by Andrew J. Fureseth of San Francisco. It is terrorized by the Atlantic coast Longshoremen’s union that is under the efficient direction of Samuel Gompers. No ships can be manned or loaded or unloaded without the consent of our labor dictators and the hulls may rot in Seattle harbor. In the mean time Germany is get ting her industries on their feet ami Japan is getting control of the ship ing of the Pacific The Pacific Steamship Company of Seattle offers to sell a fine liner for one dollar and there are no takers. The labor dictators assume no re sponsibility, their contracts are violat ed with impunity, and the courts trem ble. It seems as though Uncle Sam must play second fiddle to an autocratic power and a labor dictatorship. A LOVE FICTION By OTILLIA F. PFEIFFER <C»#|rTlf ht. Its*. Western Ncmtp*p#i Loioa, There was always a pleaM*ut.

A bright haarted young fallow, a new clerk, had loot left after showing an engagement ring to Drury he Intended presenting to bio Saacee. Drury listened to his eulogies of Its Intended recipient with pleased attention. “You must be a happy man la your own lov* affairs to be so ready to ap preciate that of others.” suggested Erie A peculiar expression crossed the face of Drury It was aerious, yet tender and expresalve. A dreamy, far away look came Into his eyes as he said: "There has been only one so-called love affair In my life, Eric, and there will never be another. Do you know who that la?” and he prod need a pho tograph from a drawer In the desk. “Why. It Is Miss Ina Vernon!” ex claimed Eric In unmitigated surprise. “You don’t mean to say that you are Interested In that direction T "Eminently ao,” replied Drury, and hts tones were fairly reverential. “I have loved her devotedly for over two years. You ara my only confidant, so respect my secret. See!" and he pro duced a packet of letters tied with a bit of ribbon. "Each month I have written to her, unfolding my heart, be ginning with ‘Dear Miss Vernon* and now addressing bar as ’My Soul’s TYeaaure.' “ Eric was fairly astounded. This quiet, unpretentious friend had out stripped them all I Miss Ina Vernon, the daughter of the wealthy manufac turer! In correspondence with her for two years—she, the proud beauty of a leading family! The "soul’s only treasure” of a plain, bumble office clerk. "Then —then you are engaged?" In sinuated Eric.

She hn« never read a line of my letter*.” "And yon are never going to tell her.” spoke Eric, with genuine feel Ing: “you. a man worthy of the eonsld eratlon of any woman!“ "It would be presumptuous. I have no rlghl to aspire, to hope." replied Drury sorrowfully. “Let my dream ing suffice. She la of another world than mine.” Drury recited how, when Miss Ver non had lost a pet spaniel, he hud re stored It through the home servants, refusing to accept the reward ten riered or to disclose his Identity.

Drury had as well run across Manfred Vernon, the brother of Ina Ills efforts and warnings had signally turned the footsteps of both the young men from the downward path. It. was about two months after the disclosure to Eric that the latter was startled by reading la ’he morning paper that a young man named Drury Lawrence, passing the mansion of John Vernon, had sprung upon a lurk ing Intruder abeut to place n lighted bond* within the vestibule bad flung It away from the boose, but Its explosion had reached him, lacerating and half blinding him.

Eric hastened to the hospital to timi Drury suffering but radiant. He hn.i saved Ino and her family! It wn enough! The Burgeon said he wmii recover both sight and strength in time.

Eric. too. told her of bis hidden acta of devotion IB behalf of her father and brother He had only to watch the lorely face of laa Yemen to know that the revelation Influenced every sentiment of girlish sympathy and Interest. From that time forward every day Ina visited Drury at the hospital. One afternoon ah# came up to Eric as she left the cot whore Dmry lay. She took his hand la a tremulous grasp. “Mr. Dawes," she whispered, blush ing, hut earnest, “will you take a tries sage to our brave friend for me*' Tell him.” and her sweet voice bore the thrill of the deepest emotion, “tell him to gel well— to.' uiy sake!” MIXTURE OF MANY NATIONS On Street of New York Almost Every Type of the Human Race May Be Met.

NICHOLSON OF LEADVILLE TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF COLORADO I have received mod read with great Interest the many request* Irea tha citizen* of the various counties of the State, urging me to become a candidate of the Republican Party for tha office of United States Senator. It la unnecessary for me to say tha selection of any cltlxen for that high office should be greatly appreciated, and it is so treated by me; and affirming my allegiance to the Republican Party and my firm beliaf in Ita principles, hereby submit myaelf aa a candidate for nomination to the office of Senator of the United States. In connection with this announcement, it ia proper to etate the general principles for which I stand, and by which I will be controlled. If elected. I believe that the happiness and welfare of the people depend up an upholding, in all ita integrity, the Constitution of tha United Btatee, and In maintaining a benevolent, yet firm, government of law and order, rtmxaa boring always that equality of rights is the very essence of Republicanism. We should deal fairly and Justly with all foreign nations, seeking their good will and cultivating their friendship; and should always stand ready to extend our aid. moral and financial, to unfortunate peoples. Bat what we may do in that direction we should do of eur own free will, flea the sake of humanity and not under compulsion of any law or force su perior to the will of the American people. lam opposed to any alllaaee with any foreign nation or nations which will call for the surrender ev abdication of any of th* sovereignty or independence of the United Staton. The Republican Party, through its senators In th* National Congress, he* declared the position of th* Party on the League of Nations, and with that declaration I am in hearty accord. The solution of the social and economic questions which are pressing upon us do not require the surrender of any of our principlss of govern inent or any substantial alteration in our political system, but those ques tions should be approached in th* Roosevelttan spirit of “True American* Ism” and the square deal. Favoring the conservation of our natural resources aa against waste and exploitation. I am opposed to any policy which will bar tha boms seeker or the miner from the public domain, or lay unreasonable restrls tlons or regulations in his way; and am opposed to any policy which will prevent th* development of any resource for which there la a present leasonable need. I believe that our immigration laws should be so modified aa to pcs vent effectively the admission of undesirable aliens; and that aliens seek ing to become cltizene should be required to learn the English and to be instructed, at the public expense, in the fundamental principles of our government and the duties of citizenship. Further legislation, both National and State, must be enacted la behalf of the veterans of the Civil. Spanish and the World wars, those brave and patriotic American citizens who fought for our Country as well as their dependents, to all of whom our Nation owes a debt which can never be paid Their protection and welfare must be given first consideration, and special preference must be given them In all Government employment. Th* farmer, stockgrower and miner are the producers upon whoa# labors reals our whole Industrial fabric, and if elected. I shall give special attention and consideration to their needs, believing, as I do. that they have not received the consideration to which they are entitled in either national or state legislation. Public offloe ia a public trust; and public funds are trust funds, and in the disposition thereof there mnat be exercised the greatc-t rare and th* strictest economy, and I unqualifiedly favor a National Budget System “Equal rights to all and special privilege* to none." instead a hackneyed phrase, should become a living, vital principle, aud legislators should ever bear in mind that without social Justice ihere can be no • quul ity; and without equality, there can be no true liberty. And by “Ju-tiee*’ I do not mean law Justice, but that natural Justice which springs from the brotherhood of man and which clearly defines for all Americans what ie right and rati and just as between man and man. While the rights of property must be deemed sacred under our Con stitution and laws, the right* of man are still more sacred, and while capital should have full, adequate and complete protection under the law the chief object of government and the chief aim of all legislation should be to promote the welfare and happiness of the people. And that as I understand It, waa the beginning and end of tne Republicanism of Lincoln and Roosevelt. In I*9 4 I had my first opportunity to. and did. vote for “Woman's Suffrage.” and have neve« had reason to doubt the wisdom of my action and the right and Justice of the cause. Both National and State legislation must be enacted to auppress and prevent profiteering, end I pledge my efforte to that end. Residing in thle State since boyhood. I am indebted to Colorado and her people tor wheteyer aucceee I may hare enjoyed, and appreciating that feet and bettering I Itno. ,h. ne.d. of both, my life work win bedeeded to their Interests.
