Welcome one and aii.
We made a quick trip to see
mother Konkel last week. She
stems a little better, but is still
very low and helpless.
At the forum Sunday evening
the matter of Sunday base ball
was discussed. The churches
are not in sympathy with the
Sunday as it seems incon
venient with Christian principles.
However the churches are willing
to support the game on a week
day. This would bring harmony
to seemingly opposing forces.
The forum is a place for free
speech, and everybody are wel
come whether Jew, Catholic or
Protestant; furthermore, any
opinion is to be respected upon
religious, political or community
Eating The "L” Out Of
The subject of our discourse
this week is "grasshoppers”.
The pesky things are raising
cain in the southwestern part of
Lincoln county and the northern
part of Crowley county. The
army is heading to the northwest
and is forty miles long and ten
miles deep. In their advance
the grasshoppers are destroying
virtually all vegetalicn, according
to Scott ' isner, county agent.
he hoppers are advancing at the
rate of one mile a day, the coun
ty agent said.
Agent Wisner received the
first word of the new arrivals
the latter part of last week and
went to the section in the L Sat
urday to combat against the pests
By three o’clock Saturday an
army of 200 men had declared
warfare on the invaders. Three
tons of bran, 300 pounds of ar
senic, 120 dozens of oranges and
120 gullons cf syrup were dished
out to the green devils Saturday
and Sunday. The front iintMn
this county extends over a length
of 25 miles.—Lincoln Co. -Dem.
Central Eastern Colorado
Tuesday afternoon of this week
the local Board of County Com
missioners intet in conjunction
with the Commissioners from
Lincoln and Kit Carson counties
for the purpose of perfecting an
organization to he known as the
Central Eastern Colorado Com
missioners Association. On ac
count of heavy rains the evening
before, Kiowa county was not
represented as it was impossible
for them to reach here owing to
the heavy roads.
The meeting was harmonious
in every detail and it was an easy
matter for these gentlemen to
get together on the proper sub
jects for discussion and the as
sociation was completed in short
order. The object of this associ
ation is for the purpose of better
ing the working conditions of
each of the counties by co-opera
tion with one another and in our
opinion is one of the best moves
that could have been made. Mr.
J. W. Shy. of this county was
elected as chairman of the assoc
iation while Mr. G. W. Huntlie,
of the Kit Carson county Board
was elected as secretary.
' At the noon hour the Cheyenne
-county board entertained their
visitors to luncheon at the Royal
Cafe. Those who-Were present:
Jas. L. Peyton, Carr Crossing; C.
M. Emmerson. Hugo; F. C. Kane

Cheyenne Wells now possesses
an institution that in our mind
has been a long time need in our
town. It is in the form of an up
to-date bakery in every respect
where the house wives of our
homes can go and purchase a)
nice fat pie or a nice cake for
lunch and not have to bother
about building a big hot fire in
their I ernes. This bakery will!
