Stinson was down from ! Lamar the first of the wep,k. The Patterson buildings have been taking on a coat of Paint. To tho movie man—hurry up ami get into the court house. Banker Holt came back from Denver with the wrong suit case. A. Peterson, Mrs. Lamport and Joe Luelleo were in town op the 29th. Earl Baker cut his chin on a wire fence the first of tl: week. Dr. Culp. Mrs. Measel is going to put in a stock of millinery and dress supplies. Pat Handley the first of the week bought a team of horses of Jake Lesley. Att’y Alberti now has the best well of water in the neighborhood of Springfield. John Anderson of Lamport was a Springfield and Herald caller on the 29th. For gambling the three boys tried before Gaither were bound over and gave bonds—s2so rach. J. O. Davis, old timer and old soldier, father of Mrs. Eldon Allen, came over on a visit the first part of the week. Contractor Burt has the con tract fer the bridge across Cat creek south of town, which guarantees a good bridge. Harry Scott and H. W. Whit ing have trial before Justice Em erson for killing Prairie Cattle C'». cattle. Two others waived and were bound over in SS(O bondt.. Leo Holmes and Contractor Measel are going to put in a com plete stock of caskets, and will take complete charge of funerals. This has been a much needed in dustry in Springfield. Jno. Minter of Illinois first commissioner and first repre sentative of Baca county, came -hftyk to Baca the first of the week for a month's stay. Mr Minter has a lot of land here. See the ud.of Contractor Meas el elsewhere. Mr. Measel is one of the most popular saw and hum mer artists in southeast Colo rado. Cause —when you get Measel you know you get good work. In criticizing the Herald for holding lots at exhorbitant pric es, we fear our contemporary fails to grasp the situation. we have no lots to sell. In the years to come, when the Great County Builder becomes a great daily, we will need all the flour space these few insignificant lots can provide. Our porary is barking at the wrong tree, and evidently has been misinformed as to the real facts in the case. Merchant Patterson returned the fir*t of the week from the bedside of his sinter in Kansas She was conscious only at inter vals while he was there, and any day he is likely to hear that the nngc-1 called for her and took her to the better world beyond. Mr. Patterson met all his brothers and sisters while there, they cuming from various places to see ttKir sister while alive. The Sentinel last week ap plauded itself on having publish ed the 640 acre law in full, while the Heinld only recently pub lished a syt opsis of it. Facts are these: Before the Sentinel covered its front page with that law, about nil who had tiling rights in Baca couaty, and could get land within tiling distance, had already made their tilings. We will venture the prediction tint the Sentinel’s page publica tion of the law didn’t help a sin ! gle one ol its readers in getting land, nnd did no good whatever except to fill space. The Herald had a synopsis of the law in tv that same week, but h-*, on day of publication, we saw from the mighty ru sh that its publi cation would he just as good at er, we passed it over. To dll up spac > we b-lieye the Se:.r:\-l published a similar bill over h year ago—“in full.” When the Herald has to publish something to fill space, we will not feel it a matter to crow about.
