Inspected Jordon’s Town One of the boys interested in the new town of Artesia asks ns to publish the following, clipped from a Guymon paper. Artesia, Colorado, the new town lo j cated in Baca county, Colorado, which | town was recently purchased by J. W. Jordqn, one pf our most prominent and well-to-do town builders, was visitsd last week by Mg Jordon, accompanied by J. C. Sheil, of the firm of Sheil & Langston, and James E. Breslin, of the law firm of Harris & Breslin, and Rex Powelson of the garage. They spent several days at the new town among the artesian wells, and left a civil en . gineer with a number of hands finish ing the work of laying out the town ■ and to complete arrangements for the ' wells to be drilled on the townsite. 1 Several fine flowing 'wells have been struck within a radius of one mile of the town, and while an abundance of excellent water could easily be obtained | from these wells for the town, Mr. Jordon, "who never does things by . halves,” is determined to put one or two artesian wells on the townsite so > that the residents will have ample ! water with which to raise flowers, 1 gardens, and grow trees* Artesia is i located on the south side of the Two Buttes’ irrigation district and is an ! ideal spot for a town, having an excel l lent drainage. It is a beautiful sight to see the artesian wells, which arc only 250 to 500 feet deep sending out ■ several hundred gallons of water every minute, these wells being within reach of the poor man. The whole country is booming and will no doubt be a com er. Both Mr. Sheil and Mr. Breslin are loud in their praises of the country and predict great things for the people who are lucky enough to get in on the ground floor at Artesia.

School News (By County Superintendent), Let there be many windows to your soul, That all the glory of the universe May beautify it. Not the narrow pane Of one poor creed can cutcli the radiant raya That shine from epuntleas sources. Tear away The blinds of supeit tition; let the light Pour through fair windows broad as truth itself | And high as God. —Selected. The following pupils in the Vilas school were absent nor tardy during the last school month: Laura, Millard, Nathan, Ora and Kollo Amer ine, Mary Crick and Johnnie Yolcum. R. M. Anderson of Stonington, was at Springfield Saturday, to qualify for County Superintendent of Schools, and to spend some time in the office ac quainting himself with the work. His term, according to law, began last Tuesday, and Saturday he expects to be in his office. With this the retiringsuperintendent terminates his work. We do not feel like doing it without a word of appre ciation for co-operation during the six years,- especially to the teachers. Owing to the great distance between some of our schools there were not as many meetings as we would like to have had, and so. not the uniformity in the work as should have been. But where possible, there was ready accept ance of some proposed new plans, changes and improvements. To direc tors and patrons also we oxtend words of thanks for valuable co-oppration in many instances. It is natural that teachers are easier enthused than di • rectors in rural districts, but directors, 100, should be enthusiastic, and we mention it believing that in the future, teachers and superintendent will find it easier lo do efficient work if all direc tors be enthusiastic and have a realiza tion of tho responsibilities and poasi bilities of the directors’ offices. Dis agreements and opposition were en countered, and mistakes made nodoubt, but we are glad to say that there was but little abuse. And it is hoped that no one expects an apology from us,but rather concede a motive hut to p|*pmote the interests of the schools. There was worry, anxiety, hard work, pleasure genuine pleasure - because the worn brought us into contact with the youth in a possible way to assist in their train ing and preparation to fulfill tho pur pose of their existence which is to dis charge their obligations to God, to themselves, and to humanity. And to find that in some way assistance was rendered in such develodments and preparations for life, will be sweet sat isfaction and compensation for the labor. We plead for co-operation with Mr. Anderson, and pledge it on our j part, wishing him a successful admin istration und the greatest good possible to the schools of the county. Look Here.
