Vol. XXIX. No. 7
The Great County Builder— that’s the Herald—that’s the paper you want. The biggest problem just now with the republicans of the state seems to be how to get Governor Carlson to be good during the rest, of his turn. The one who thinks 'that crops here will farm themselves, or that he needs no stock, man ifestly is in the wrong conn try and in the wiong business. England will have no peace un til Germany is licked, and Ger many will have no peace till the other fellers are licked; which makes it possible that there will be no peacemntil neither side is able to like a postage stamp. At last reports from Denver there was one lone democrat hid away in the high brush on Capi tol Mill who had watched his faithful comrades go to the block, and had steeled himself for the ordeal when it should come. One year when exactly seven inches of rain fell fru.n one Aug ust to the next August, one man with one helper down on the old Sandy Arroyo turned oft $1,400 worth of brusu and grain. Now who will tell us what that land is worth ? We believe the vanguard of cheap-land hunters is now on the heels of homestead tilers, and that we want to change our talk from goverment lands to cheap lands—all the time im pressing the fact that land here is cheap at $20.00 to $30.00 per acre. The latest on the preparedness proposition, we see by the Sparks, is the starting of a munitions f actory at Pueblo. We thought the Pueblo Chieftain machine works w.ts turning out a good supply of munitions —or does the Sparks want to start an indepen dent plant? .John D. during his financial career hasn’t come in for much outside of condemnatory flings by particularly the rural press; but Ins act of turning down a half billion loan to the allies en titles him to the unanimous com mendation of everybody for his stand on the side of humanity and civil zatiou- John D. does n’t believe in war, and doesn’t purpose to help either side. 1?y til* Lamar Register we l ai n that E. M. Mears brought State Geologist George and a party of oil capitalists down to in vestigate the Mustang oil field on the 10th inst., and that said capitalists thought it a good proposition. In addition to the good oil prospects, they found a mint bed as good as the Ken tucky article. If those gentle men didn't mistake “rye” for “mint 3 ’ they have a pretty good thing out there. The Springfield Herald Fair Visitors Invited Utopia By Otto H. Rowland (The Uncle Walt Mason of Baca County). To every man sometime in )ife there cemes a sweet utopian dream; he sees a land where care; and strife are ever vanished; where every stream makes mu -j sic as it -flows along; where al!j the world moves on in tune, I wlmre all is fair and life a song, i where all the blissful world is June There the future’s spread out far and fair; each man lias dreams of such a land, with him enthroned as master there If it happens in the remotest nook or corner of Baca county, the Herald has a correspond ent there to tell about it. Tins Herald this week contains some information that your friends back east would appre ciate. Send them this copy and they will thank you for it. The Two Buttes reservoir promises ir a few years to be come one of the popular fishing resorts of the state Several thousand young Mish have been introduced in the the big pond from time to time, and on the 13th inst. 6000 bass found a new home in the impounded waters of the Butte Creek dam. The Two Buttes reservoir, as well as the destined to be a good drawing card for Baca county. England stands pat on her food contraband promulgation, by which $15,000,000 in American meats were recently confiscated in prize court. The meat pack ers are the losers by the court’s decision. The Sentinel has another road revelation. Something better than a year ago it had the stakes; driven almost up to that town 1 from the southeast: down in the drag end of spring it got an “in side tip” that certain statistics would bring a spur down to Two Two Buttes from Holly or there abouts; and just recently it got a hunch that a s pur on “good au thority” is on its way (exaggera- 1 lively) to Two Buttes from somei point on the Elkhart cut-off. i Wonder if .Tones ever sav a map of old Boston, old Springrkdd, or old Minneapolis. Apropos the matter of a rail road, in an-wvr to diverse re-| quests for railroad news, the. Herald believes that when Baca, county gets one road it will very 1 probably get two. At present the Santa Fe holds this territory ! by its lines north :ind east, and j consequently it. isn’t likely to 1 listen to our “inducements'* un til another road starts to build through. Just how soon that! will be, or which way the road is i coming from, the Herald doesn’t propose to say until there is something bmkil'l on the subject. We believe the tem porary ad van t ig*»3 gained on f tlse h .pes is small, and that the after consequences a ways militate against the country.
