Out of the possible four hundred that registered, only one hundred and sixty-two voted. The Citizens ticket as was nomi nated, was unanimously elected and contains some of the very best men of our city, men whom we can all depend on as giving us a fair and square deal in all their dealings and who have the interest of the town in their hearts. On the count of the votes east it Bhowed that Mr. J. E. Hayea received 109 votes for the office of Mayor; the council men elected were Carroll Brown, Frank Swanson and J. P. Cahill. With these good men at the bead of our town, it is up to each individual to assist them in what ever way possible and help make our town one of the best in this part of the state, and the first step we should take in our mind, is to set aside one day for a gen eral clean-up and rid the streets and alleys of all trash and rubisb Let’s boost for thi- first. We have always been under the impression that this was a “free country” and that a person had a perfect right to do as he pleased as long as he kept within the bonds of our laws. We learn ed this week that a certain busi ness man of this town, one who had a taste for nifty stationery for his business, had been pounc ed upon because he had his work done in an up-to-date job office, where you can get value received for your money at any old time and all work guaranteed and done as you like it. We do not mind competition, in fact we are pleas ed to have it, as it puts more pep into our work and causes us to strives little harder to please our patrons which we think is meet ing our desire. Bring on your work folks we are hero for the business. X. F. Biedler came down from Denver Sunday evening to look after his real estate interests here and as he says ‘‘to give the country the once over” to see how the winter wheat is showing up. If we do not miss our guess be will find everything in ship shape condition as we have never had a better prospect for a bump er crop than at the present time. He was accompanied on his trip by a gentleman from lowa, a Mr. McGee, who is assisting X, in giving us the ‘‘once over”. Last Sunday at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Kahe, who reside south of Arapahoe, a big farewell party was held at their home in honor of Mr. and Mrs. S. J, Adams, who have recently sold their farming implements and stock and contemplate leaving the farm for the time being. A large crowd of friends and neighbors gathered and a general good time was had by ail present ‘‘ln order to stop the people from calling at my farm to look at my horses L have advertised in your paper, we had better take the adv out”, that is the way Mr. Haney addressed us on Mon day morning. Said he sold the animals through our advertising medium. Certainly, an adv in the Record gets results. The Catholic Ladies Altar Bociety will hold a food sale at the Vaiore Hardware store April 15th. They will also have aome Easter novelties for sale. Sale to begin at 9 a. m. We Are Located In One of the Best Fanning Districts of This State Commercial Contest The local contests in commer cial subjects will be held at Arapa hoe, Cheyenne Wells and Kit Carson high schools, next Friday April 7th.

Winners from these schools and those from the commercial de partments of all high schools in Lincoln and Kit Carson counties will contest at Kit Carson April 21st, and the winners from there will go to the state tournament at Greeley, which will take place the first week in May. That Cheyenne Wells stands high in the estimation of those who only visit us occasionally, as well as those who reside in our immediate vicinity, was demon strated the other day when the editor was in conversation with a gentleman who makes his head quarters some little distance from our city. In the course of the conversation this gentleman re marked that Cheyenne Wells was one of the best towns in his ter ritory, a better spirit among the business men, farmers feeling more friendly toward the town, and every prospect of a prosper ous future. With our excelent municipal water and light plant, fine school system, and a bunch of men who are striving to keep Cheyenne Wells in the front ranks, we have every reason to feel proud of our town and com munity. On March 15th, this year, in vested funds under control of the State Board of land commission ers, as trustee for the schools of Colorado, passed the $7,000,000 mark.

Last Friday evening down at the community dance we over heard a conversation between two of our popular young people when they were discussing the subject of dancing when the young lady asked her friend if he "enjoyed codfish balls" The young man is one of those kind that always have a quick and snappy answer and said “don’t know; never at tended one”_. Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Magwire, of Logan, Iowa, arrived in our little city last Thursday morning for a visit with relatives and in cidently looking the country over with a view of locating here if they can be suited. Mrs. Mag wire returned home Monday evening while Joe will remain for an indefinite time. As a way of letting the tour ists know that they are still on the straight and narrow path, E. J. Harris has decorated his gas fountain with the "high signs” of the Union Pacific highway and also the H. & H. highways. Quite nifty idea at that, and im proves the appearance of the old fount to. Jas. Goodnight and wife came up from Sheridan Lake Sunday and spent the day visiting rela tives and friends. Country Looking Good Last Sunday afternoon we en joyed a little ride out into the country taking a southwesterly direction and noted with interest, the large acreage of wheat. Owing to the great amount of moisture we have been having lately these fields are begining to put on the beautiful green color and in the course of ten days will be a lovely picture.

Your attention is called to the Valore Hardware advertisement in this issue this week in regard to the number cf power farming machines that has been sold by this firm this spring. This little item alone, in our opinion should show to the world what a progres sive bunch of farmers we have in our community. Not only this firm has the sale of power machines in this city, but there are two or three other dealers and each one of them have made several different deliveries of their special make farming out fits.
