Why A Silo.
You need a silo because you
wish to make more money on the
farm. It is because you cannot
afford to be without a necessity,
and to compete with the man who
has one you must have one, too.
The silo will reduce the cost of
raising beef, milk, mutton and
eggs. It will permit of keeping
r three times more stock on your
farm than you n6w have,
v If you have a summer silo you
will need less pasture and will
have more land for cultivation.
It will build up your soil and
increase the value of your land.
A silo saves labor, as with it
you can feed more stock in much
less time than by any other
means and it can be done easier.
' Not only does the silo decrease
the cost of production, but it in
creases the animals’ production
and the quality of the product |

School Houses.
There is a growing tendency
all over the country to utilize the
the school buildings outside of re
gular school hours for social and
civic purposes. The question
that prompts this movement is
why should an institution that
costs so much money and that is
common property lie idle so much
of the time. The plan is to en
courage mother’s clubs, literary
societies and social functions of
various kinds that will bring the
people together in a common in
terest and thus further a com
munity feeling which, in co-ope
ration with the regular work of
the school, will lead to a higher
plain of thought and greater use
of the individual as a member of
the society in which he is forced

Honest Homesteaders Buncoed
by Federal Office Sharks.
Hundreds Of Poor Settlers Made Paupers By
Order of Department of Interior.
Entrymen Will Abandon Homes, Conditions Will Not War
rant Laws Compliance.
Hundreds of honest settlers in this vicinity have received notice from the Pueblo Land Office,
which means ruin to them. The order simply meahs that th 2 homesteader’s property will be confis
cated by the Government, unless they comply vith the ruling of some block head Federal Office
holder whose knowledge of the west is limited to garbled press reports.
The order in substance is as follows: An entryman holding an additional entry under the en
larged homestead act of February 19, 1909, can not make proof upon his claim until he has lived up
on either his original or additional entry and cultivated the required proportion of the combined
areas on either one or both for five years after elate of additional filing”.
Hundreds of entrymen have been buncoed into making final proof on their claims before the
Local Land Office, the proper officers of which issued to claiments a final receipt. On this final re
ceipt, which the Supreme Court of Wyoming has decided, conveys good and sufficient title, thousands
of acres have been sold to innocent purchasers and the original entryman moved elsewhere.
This order compels within 30 days the original entryman to take up residence and finish his
unexpired five years.
This office has been crowded all week with angry homesteaders who are using all kinds of an
gelic expressions of their love for the man higher up. Many say they will abandon their additional
entry and some go so far as to say they will abandon their claims.
To show the hardship and absolute ruin wrought by this infamous ruling we give you one in
stance thare afe hundreds similar. A poor man made entry" December 1902 on a quarter section,
with his family Occupied said land from April 1903 continuously until April 1911, in full compliance
of the law. In May 1909 he filed under the law of February 19, 1909 upon an adjoining 160 acres.
On November 8, 1909 he submitted final five year proof before the local land office, said proof was
favorably commended upon as being one of the best offered before that office. Every requirement
had been amply complied with. The Receiver’s receipt was issued.
In March 1911 the local physician informed this entryman that he would be compelled to move
to a lower altitude; as his wife could not possibly remain here much longer.
He hastily disposed of his land and personal property and with his family of loved ones moved
to California, where they now reside enjoying the best of health.
The issuance of this ruling by the department demands that he return to his homestead and re
side thereon two years and one month longer to fullfill, what some whipper-snapper office holder
says is law. If this same department permits this entryman to make final proof and issue final re
ceipt, why should they—twelve months later undo what they permitted to be done.
If this entryman, whose case is only one among hundreds, is compelled to return and comply
with this ruling it means that he will lose all of the labor for ten years of his life.
Protection to entrymen in above class is demanded. Parties interested should at once write to
the Secretary of the Interior protesting against the ruling. Letters stating the facts addressed.
Hon. John A. Martin, Hon. E. T. Taylor, Washington, D. C. should be written and mailed at once.
A united protest may yet undo this damable piece of cussedness.
Be Careful How You Vote.
If you want the taxpayers of
Cheyenne Wells to win. and the
people to rule, write the word'
“Citizens” at the head of your
ticket and put it in the box with
out any other word or mark on it
If you do this, the people will be
in power and Cheyenne Wells
will be transferred from the
hands of a few, to the hands of
the people.
Vote the “Citizens” ticket that
was named by the caucus, and,
elect the ones the two-thirds ma
jority of the people attending
expressed their desire to have in
Silo Observations.
1 The readers of this publication
are going to hear a great deal
during the next six months con
cerning the silo, and its applica
tion to Colorado conditions. There
are at least ten good reasons why
the silo is practically adapted to
the Plains Region of Colorado.
The fact that a man does not have
capital enough to build a silo of
the better type, and to purchase
machinery for it, does not pre
vent him from using this means
for forage preservation, as the
pit silo is adapted to the needs
of the plains country. Of course
the concrete silo is better, but it
is aIBO much more expensive and
the pit silo will dq until the man
is able to build one of concrete.
▲ thorough discussion of the silo
question and the construction of
both pit and concrete silos will
be given in subsequent issnes.
