This here inseck was found in u iron safe thrat was opened fur the first time in twenty years. When they took the lock apart they' found a big roacb inside the lock, so they looked up the dute when the safe was made which was 1849, and they figgered, of course, that they was no way in which the roach could-a got inside the lock, so it must-a been thrar since ’49, which would make it now at least 74 years of age. It was a little weak when it first saw daylight, hut revived and become as peart as a flapper in a few min utes. Of course I can’t say nuthin’ on this subject from a scientific standpoint, but I’m turnin’ this information over to the Entomology 'department fur in vestigation. However, I’d like to say that I believe it’s true. I’ll believe anything about a cockroach that’-; told me after what happened to Cactus Charley when he was on his homestead in Prowers county. He had a pet cockroach that used to set on the other chair in his shack and watch Chuck eat and then git the leavin’s. His folks used t<o send him cake and him and “Red,” which was his nickname fur the cockroach, both liked cake. One time Chuck cleaned up the maple iceing on the plate with out thinkin’ about his inseck pard, who was settin’ thar patiently waitin' fud his share of the crumbs. Darned if Red didn’t hop right up and bite Chuck in the hand! Without stoppin’ to think Chuck slapped back and mash ed the life outen poor Red and it. made him, (Chuck.) sad fur nrany days. So I say, you can’t l»e sure about what a cockroach will do, or how old they are ami if our entomologists has anything scientific to add I’ll give it to you folks next week. —Thos.

VISITING ON TELEPHONE TABOOED BY COMPANY Women Are Declared Chifef Offenders in * Useless' Conversation That Often Lasts 45 Minutes or I lour—‘Preposterous !* Says Fair Ones. j Boston, March IG.—Visiting on the | telephone must stop. That is the edict ! of the New England Telephone com pany and it has been given the offic ! ial sanction of William H. O’Brien, I chief of the telephone and telegraph ! division of the Massachusetts public I utilities commission. | The telephone companies *are deter mined that what they term “useless” conversation must be limited to five minutes and in pursuance to that, they have issued a ruling to party line sub scribers that no call be longer. To make the ruling doubly effective, it was muilevi out with the monthly bills. Discontinuance of the service is the penalty for refusal to comply. The action was the answer to hundreds of j complaints from party line patrons 'that they have been forced to “park” j themselves and wait for half hours j and even hours in some cases to get important calls thru while “gabby” women chat. These complaints are borne nut by the files of the telephone company, which reveal that women are the chief offenders in the so-called “useless” conversation, while business men are the chief complainants against the delay in service. When a maa calls his home, he snorts a few monosyl i lables and hangs up, telephone experts say, but when a woman calls one of her female friends, she talks about everything from King Tut and his day to his influence on modern styles. The latest dress must be described on the phone, from bodice to sequins; the party of the afternoon must be detailed at great length with »he lat est shocking scandal of the community losing none of its salacious details by the retelling; newcomers in the neigh borhood must be discussed at length as to previous condition of social standing and behavior and given either the sanction or rejection of the “set.” A woman telephone company research men have learned, talks about every thing she can think of, including the plot of the latest movie, when she is comfortably fixed before a mouth piece. Twenty-eight minutes is not unus ually long for them to converse; while if given a good start, forty-five min utes is an easy matter. With a loqua cious woman, an hour is merely a “nice little chat.” The women plainly do not like the new ruling. “What,” they have reason to in quire in their wrath, “what can you say in five minutes?” “Perfectly preposterous,” they term the stand the telephone company has taken. They are joined in this by their flapper daughters who talk chief ly of their love affairs and their dates on the telephone and by their love sick sons, who hang on one end of a party line and pour sentiment into the ear of the young Juliets at the other end. The telephone companies stand flat footed on their ruling. “Say it in five minutes or not at all.” is their attitude. LAMBERT BILL WILL PASS Defeat of Sweet Hill Paves Way for Passage of the Cole-Lambert Code Bill. Denver, March 19. —From the stand point of legislative accomplishments, last week was the most important of the session of the Twenty-fourth gen eral assembly. By refusing to pass it on second reading, the house definitely killed the Sweet administrative code measure and thereby prevented the creation of another series of boards and bureaus, with resulting burdens on the taxpay ers. This measure was copied from the Illinois and Nebraska codes, which have proved costly failures, and ex perts on economics predicted that its enactment into law would have trans ferred to Colorado all the ills which Illinois and Nebraska have suffered in recent years, with increasing tax bur dens and a multiplied bureaucracy. By permitting the administrative code hill to he reported out first the Republican majority on the rules com mittee, who are supporters of the consolidation measure, ex hibited the fairness with which all Governor Sweet’s measures have been treated. Free and open discussion of the merits of the proposed code bill was given before its defeat. In the senate, the co-operative mar keting bill, which has the support of a large number of farmer's organiza tions, was passed on third and final reading with only four dissenting votes, and sent to the house. Altho numerous objections were made to some sections of this measure, parti cularly in regard to those w'hich im posed severe penalties on persons who might not be fully acquainted with the provisions of the law, the Republican majority was anxious to enact any legislation which might he of assist ance in providing relief to the farmers and livestock men of Colorado. It is possible that the measure will be materially amended before passage by the house. Action on the administrative code bill in the house clears the way for discussion of the Lambert consolida tion bill, which will be brought up early this week. This measure will eliminate more than a score of state hoards and bureaus, and make pos sible a decided reduction in the cost of administering the state government. The support of the entire Republican membership in the house, and there fore its passage in that body, is as sured. The senate, by acting on the cooper ative marketing bill, likewise cleared the way for consideration of the Colo rado river compact, which will be brought up the first of this week. Lieut. Gov*. Robert F. Rockwell, presi dent of the senate, has received tele gram from Dr. Hubert Work, secretary of the interior, urging ratification of the treaty in order to make possible further development of Colorado’s re sources. Quick 'action on the compact is expected in the senate. LEGION DISTRICT MEETING American Legion Holds Valley Meet ing at I*a Junta Last Monday Evening. Lieut C. P. Childress, Commander of Walter L.
