Subscription One Dollnr tho Year Ta.rw.vteu <fe Bai.es, Owners II. Y. Tarwater Walter L. Bale- Snowed most all day Thursday and melted about as fast as it struck the ground. A communication from one of Cheyenne county’s leading so cialists will appear in the next issue of this paper. John Benson, section foreman on the west end out of Cheyenne Wells, has the reputation of be ing the most competant employee in his line on the U. P. system, and of having the most reliable gang of men in his employ in the state. Speaker Champ Clark got down out of his high chair recently and spoke in favor of the three year homestead law. Champ Clark is and has always been with the people on all questions, and his ■defense of the three year law will further endear him to the ■people of the west. Boys and Girls Agricultur al Clubs.

A New York butcher has been sent to the penitentiary for tem porarily inserting a pound of lead in each turkey he sold. If the same law applied to speeches, Mr. Roosevelt could be sent up for life for giving weight to his speeches by inserting chunks of the democratic platform.—The Commoner. Death’s Decree. Miss Belle Wilson, who was for some time a school teacher in Cheyenne Wells and Cheyenne county, died after a brief illness at her home in Neodesha, Kans., Saturday, April 6, 1912. Her many friends here will re gret to learn of her untimely death and extend sympathy to the parents and family in their bereavement. Miss Belle was an excellent young lady and a suc cessful school teacher. Carl Sears, accompanied by Misses Alfa Eash, Alice Sears and E. A. Rogers, took the speed ometer and muffler off the fam ous Sears racing car and started Sunday morning on a wild dash for the Eash home 2 miles south of Arapahoe for dinner. After a sumptuous feed at Pa Sam’s culinary crib, they started on to Sharon Springs by way of thg domicile of Miss Laura Schaffer who joined the gay company. The boys, knowing Kansas to be dry as a powder horn, forestalled the extremity of a need of aqui | puri, and loaded *the car with such rejuvinasing minerals as would defy the severest call of thirst, and thereby hangs a tale. The party made Sharon Springs all right and afterwards they al so made Cheyenne Wells and re port to their friends on this side of the line, a time that would be the envy of the gods. Now, we are not going to ask any questions but we would like to know where Carl was Saturday night ami what he was doing. Taylor and the 3-Year Law. Congressman Edward T. Tay lor is considerably riled al>out the monkey business that is going on in regard to the three year home stead law. Taylor made the best speech Tuesday in defense of the homestead law that has so far come to our notice. He said in part: ‘‘It seems to me that it is time the country was expressing its views as to whether congress or the secretary of the interior is the law-making power of this government. “I am getting a deluge of let ters, petitions and telegrams on this subject from all over the west. I cannot possibly answer them individually. From Colo radb, the eastern portion of the state, where there is no mineral or timber or water power, they are willing to accept a condition al surface title in order to secure the 3-year homestead. But they do not realize that the secretary is unwilling to have it apply to them. Even if I should agree to the surface title amendment they would get no benefit out of the law.” For Sale. Good 3-year-old horse, weight 1100; good 8-year-old mare, weight 900; $165 for the two; part time. Call at The Times office for particulars. County Educational Meet ing.

The Cheyenne County Devel opment Company, a corporation organized for the purpose of de veloping the agricultural re sources of Cheyenne county, is certainly an enterprise of which too much cannot be said by way of commendation. All of the gentlemen interested in this com pany are men of ample means to make it a great financial success and it is to the good judgement and confidence of such men as officer this company in the sta bility and real commercial value of the farming lands of Cheyenne county that the county’s general success in agriculture and the advance in the price of real es tate is largely due.

DeMunbrun - - Proprietor f opment Company owns 23,000 acres of the most fertile farming land in the county, and at the present time have 8,000 acres sown to wheat. Cheyenne coun ty, and especially the farmers, may congratulate themselves on account of the way in which this company will make it possible for their lands to increase in value as well as that of this com pany, by reason of the large amount of money expended by them in the development of the latent resources of the soil, which it is impossible for the small - farmer or homesteader to accom plish alone. This company does a general 1 land sales business, and if you want to sell, they will find you a buyer, or if you want to buy, they will find exactly what you want, if it’s in Eastern Colorado. In a little more than a year that they have been actually en gaged in developing the natural agricultural resources of this county, they have bought and sold more land than all other agencies or land companies com bined. Keep these people here by giving them your business and put yourself in a position to be the beneficiary in the results that will come to you through their expenditure of large sums in the same enterprise in which you are engaged, while they take on themselves the burden and the cost of finding out what you want to know.
