parade followed by the L. T. Wait
man Post, Wor’d War heroes and
the citizens of this city marched
to the hall where they listened to
appropriate speaches on this oc
casion by the following speakers:
Dr. J. W. Irwin, of Denver and
Dr. J. H. Shriber, of Fort Col
lins. Mrs. J. P. Perry, of this

Court House park the Cheyenne
Wells band played their first open
air concert of the season and was
witnessed by a large and apprec
iative audience. Considerable
comment was heard about the
park in regard to their playing
and a very noticable diffence in
the way they handled their
music under their new director,
Mr. Kirk. After several well
rendered selections in the park
the band retired to the base ball
diamond where they furnished a
few lively selections for the
benefit of the large crowd on the
grounds, which the people
through the Record wish to ex
tend their many thanks. Fine

The Cheyenne Wells base ball

score of seven to four, the day
was ideal for the a ball game and
a large drowd turned out to wit
ness the geme, autos were parked
on both sides of the diamond ex
tending below the foul flags.
The game was featured by some
spectacular fielding and good
steady pitching by both Ander
son for the visitors and Kuzian
for the home club; Jull in center
field showed big league form
when he went to deep center
taking a long one out of the wind
with one hand; Brown who has
been out of base ball for a few
years was slightly erratic at first
but redeemed himself in the
eighth by polling out a three bag
ger. Cram unfortunately injured
in the first inning by injuring his
knee, but the third bag was ef
ficiently covered by Spud Beckler
who replaced him. Good sports
manship and clean base ball pre
vailed during the game with Ev
Fleming rendering his usual good
judgement from the umpires box

$1.50 THE TEAK
Last Saturday evening about one
of the quietest and quickest sales
that has been pulled off in Chey

Dutton disposed of his business
interests in our thriving little
city consisting of his restaurant,
bakery and pool hall together
with his business buildings to
the Maddox Brothers, which
came as a big surprise to our
citizens. Mr. Dutton in turn
took over the hotel business of
the Maddox Brothers at Limon,
and on Sunday morning was in
his new town dishing out the
breakfast to his new trade. The
Maddox boys have been conduc
ting the Royal Cafe here for some
time and are not new to us, they
are good restaurant people and we
wish them success in their new
undertaking, Mr. Dutton has
been a resident of Cheyenne
Wells for a number of years and
his many friends here were in
deed sorry to hear of Ms move.
The loss of one of our good busi
ness men is Limon’s gain, but,
we will give Mr. Dutton just six
months time to find out that he
left the best little town in eastern
Colorado and that he will return
to the fold inside of our pre
scribed time.

A very welcome guest smong
us this week was a million dollar
rain that came Monday evening
and continued through the follow
ing day. Our many large wheat
fields were in need of just such a
rain as we had in order that our
farmers may reap the bumper
crops that we have had in view
for so many days.
We were officially informed
this week that the work of put
ting in the concrete as a base for
the new engine to be installed at
the city wells had been started
and that as soon as possible the
new engine will be put to work.
It is predicted that with this
machine in running order and
with the new pumps that were
recently installed there is no
question but what our little city
will always have plenty of water
for all purposes.
