While we had a nice rain here it was not equal to the one at Arapahoe. Sam Sowers, the kind and obliging janitor, at the court house, left the latter part of last week for Cripple Creek, Colorado on a vacation, he expects to be gone until about September 1. Sam needs a rest and we hope he will come back in better health. Miss Lillian Bogert, our typo, accompanied Fred Hendricks and Miss Rowley to Norton County, Kansas, Tuesday, where she goes to take in the Lenora Jubilee and visit her sister and friends for several weeks, so if this paper is not as newsy as common, just “cuss” her for not being here, and tending to business.

The dance last Saturday night given by the I. 0. O. F. Lodge was one of the largest and most orderly crowds that we have seen assembled at so large a gather ing for some time. The music furnished by Kirks orchestra, of Kit Carson, was excellent. To say that each and every one was well pleased, is putting it rather mildly, L. W.

R. were in Cheyenne Wells last Friday evening in the inter est of the people of this county if the people here wished to have the alfplfa train stop at Cheyenne Wells and demonstrate to them how alfalfa and other forage crops can be raised in Eastern Colorado. A meeting of the citizens was speedily called and quite a crowd gathered at th • court house, and sanctioned the idea of having the train stop here Petitions were-circulated and lib erally signed asking that the train stop here, and we think the railroad company will grant the requests of the petitioners. Watch for the date in this paper. And then come in and learn how to grow forage crops successful ly. PROSPECT HILL. Mr. and Mrs Carl Driscol and children wt-re evening guests at our sanctum on Saturday. 0. A. Finess was ingenious enough to make a corn harvester out of his Tower blade cvltivator —Keep sharp-set level —drive fast- Keep at it and it is all right. The board of [directors of the Presbyterian church of Araphaoe desire to have a meeting on Aug. 16, of the members for the pur pose of seeing about building a parsonage. We received a letter from W. E. Redmon inviting us to visit them at their new home, at Pal isade, Colo., which we would be pleased to do, but owing to our being too busy we will have to decline for the present. Mr. and Mrs. Grover Calvert and children. Geo. and Jamie were visiting Mrs. Calverts par ents at Prospect Hill last Satur day. They were bvertaken by a rain on their return home in the evening, but got home safely. “Be ye all of one mind” is an injunction we all obey. When we meet thtse drouthy days, we all inadvertantly mention the weather, wishing it would rain, and in the heat of enthusiasm say, "it is hot”—and why shouldn’t we when it is a hun dred in the shade. All eyes are now on Mexico. If Representative Lind can land it will take a lot of peace work to settle the fiery spirit of the aztics. If he is rejected, cruel and blood y war may follow. Hands off, let them settle it, would be san guary, but possibly best. We are anxiously awaiting the out come. Preaching next Sunday at Arapahoe at 11 a. m. Sunday school at 10:30. Then at May field school house at 3 o’clock. A good turn out on these occas sions is desirable. Rev. Ganes will preach at both points and will interest all who come. Last Sunday he held services at Wes kan and will preach there once a month, by invitation from the people of that town. A Presby terian church may be organized there in the near future. Sys tematic arrangements with the Presbytery may lead to this. j Corn harvesting is proceeding slowly as that crop shows signs of ripening. There will be more feed in the country than was expect ed. It is wonderful how feed crops grow with limited moisture. Proper planting has much to do with bringing about this result. Good beginnings are great fac tors in farming. Hap-hazzard methods wont do. A good foun dation to a house is always wise, so a good seed bed is the first step toward a good crop. Culti vation is easy if the first things were done right. STATE AUTO TAX BRINGS IN $10,000 Secretary of State Pearce Be lieves SBO,OOO Will be Raised | for Roads This Year by License. The first 12,000 state automobile li censes issued under the provisions of the new automobile law which went in to effect July 15 have brought in $lO,- 000. Secretary of State Pearce be lieves that from this a fair estimate of $5 an automobile can be made for the whole state. The tax is graduated ac cording to the si/.e and horse power of the car. Nearly li,ooo licenses have already been issued at the secretary ofstute.s office, where all the Denver tax is col lected. In otner counties the tax is collected by the county clerks. Secretary Pearce declares that with in a few days the Denver police de partment will begin holding auto mobiles that are dl iven without a state license tag. “We want to giveeverybody reason able time to comply-with the law, but there seems to be some people who think they do not have to have a state number on their machines," said Pearce. “They will soon find out that they must obey the law and pay the state license fee. Reports from all over thestate are that the tax is being paid without protest.” It is estimated that the tax will bring in about SBO. 000. This money goes into the road fund, half of it to the state highway commission and half to the county in which it is collected. it is an annual tax and will increase with the number of machines. « Eii&JißjKßEi pMerttfrly Efficiency Efficiency In a Cream Separator is measured by the amount of work the machine will do and the way it does it.
