From Cimarron News. Lately the county attorney and sheriff have been giving the bootleggers a rue for their mon , ey and it is now very dry in Cim arron county exceedingly dry, phew! Last week and this, the court of inquiry has been in al > mo t constant session trying to . get a line on the dispenser of * “the spirits that, cheer” in Boise City but up to this writing there have been no arrests. Monday Frank Watson of Ken ton was arrested by Deputy Sheri If Moon of that place and brought to the countv seat and arraigned before Judge Pugh. He was held under SSOO cash bond to await the further pleas ure of the court. Since then He Mas been indicted on four other charges of bootlegging, but we have not heard what arrange ments he has made with regard to bonds in those cases. He must have done a flourishing I business if he has the kale seed ;to put up the same amount on leach count. Judge Pugh and | Attorney Butts went to Kenton Wednesday to hold an inquisi tion, and there is a possibility of more arrests. The action of the officials is meeting with the hearty approval of the citizens both here and at Kenton. Sen timent is considerably aroused against the bootleggers on ac count of the death of Albert Jones there recently, and they j are lending the officials every assistance.

On the Burton Smith home stead south of Chivington is be ing tried a crop new to this reg ion, called shallu. There is about i an acre of it and it is making a remarkable heavy yield even in j this very dry year. It is esti-l mated there will be 20 to 30 bu. per acre when threshed out, and it will also furnish a great quan tity of fodder for stock feed, the stalks standing very thick on the ground and having many leaves commencing close to the ground and reaching to the top. It looks like this will be a splendid dry land crop in this region. THE ROBBER TARIFF Haven’t you heard that ali your life? We have -and moreover we have observed that it is a “bugaboo” to divert our attention in that direction while we were being robbed in Isome other manner Now we have no “TEXAS FREIGHT RATE” but we do pretend to buy our Lumber right, and you know the old saying “Goods well bought are half sold.” A good fair grade of White Pine boards will i cost you only $25.00 per thousand at our yard in Holly, and its lighter to haul, easier to work, and will give better satisfac tion all around than “TEXAS HARD PINE” Ask our many satisfied customers around Baca Co. Holly Lumber & Supply Co. N. E. Berry Mgr. Boston Pickings. ■ “Prof. Raker”, the teacher, has ] come and gone; Arid now its a question oi\ I whom the joke is on. If joke there is in it, on the j boys it must be, With no cost attaching, as all | jokes are free. Woman like, Prof. Baker couldn’t keep a secret. At the end of a week the ‘schoolmaster” j ! was known to be a woman, and i l so Boston is now without a teach- j |er. Prof. Baker says that the!l i detectives have been on her trail I for seven years. “He” held a ninety-seven percent certificate taken out in Denver county, th s state. The professor says sue isn’t through with Baca Go. — that she’s coming back, notwith standing that the board unwisely I ■ gave her $25 to stay away. Prof. Baker was a little of everything—doctor, actress, mu sician, magician, master of lan guages, shorthand reporter, and things otherwise. But sue didn’t 1 know that Baca Co. could sport a regularly ordained and licensed professor of “hypnolojry”, in the person of Prof. William inomas Couch, A. M. It was your uncle William who made a few passes over and said a few cooing- words to Prof. Baker and had her hyp notised, and thereby made ‘him’ give away some valuable secrets such as being married and hav ing two children - -boy and girl. Any old time that other im portant communities are in need of sensations they can get them “handed down” or “made to order” by applying to Boston, guaranteed not to rip nor to run down at the heel.
