The Cedar Canal Will

To thf many who are Inquiring

enterprlae near Cedar In San Miguel
county, Colorado. I will say that 1

contain ten thousand, seven hundred
aoree of water one foot deep with a
dam requiring fifty-six cubic yards of
dirt to the acre foot of water. The
other one will store about teu thous
and acre feet with a lose quantity of
dirt In the dam. There Is plenty of
dirt available for building the dams at
small cost and the reservoirs are
Ideal for bolding water.
These reservoirs are so situated as
to cover the entire valley of thirty
thousand acres or more, by means of
about eight miles of ditch to the up
per part of the land to bo watered.
There are three other reservoirs lo
cated which can, and will be utilized
if needed. The water supply Is more
than ample to fill these artificial
takes each year, besides Irrigating
the land during the early part of the
season. I have been camped near the
Disappointment creek, which will sup
ply the water, since March 5, 1910,

Difficult Terms.
“I'm afraid that prlma donna’s lack
of mathematical knowledge is going
to get me Into trouble,” said the man
ager.
“You are obliged to accept any
terms she makes?"
“I am. But It was a little thought
less of her to Insist on my signing a
contract to pay her 101 per cent, of
the gross receipts."
A Waste of Time.
“Doctor," she asked, in pleading
tones, “do you think It will be neces
sary for me to have an operation?"
“Oh. I hardly think so,” be replied.
'There! 1 told my husband It
wouldn't be any use coming to you.
My next door neighbor has a doctor
who has prescribed three operations
for her during the past year."

Youth Had Much to Learn.
An English gentleman once fell from
his horse and injured his thumb. The
pain Increasing, he was obliged to
send for a surgeon. One day the doc
tor was unable to visit the patient,
and therefore sent his son instead.
"Have you visited the Englishman ?’’
said his father, in the evening. “Yes,”
replied the young man. “and I have
draw’n out a thorn which I ascertained
to be the chief cause of his agony.”
“Fool!” exclaimed the father. “I
trusted you had more sense; now
there Is an end to the job."
Knew His Wife.
It 1b recorded of an old English
farmer that, In giving instructions for
his w’lll, he directed a legacy of one
hundred pounds be given to his widow.
Being informed that some distinction
was usually made In case the widow
married again, he doubled the sum;
and when told that this was quite con
trary to custom, he said, with heart
felt sympathy for his possible suc
cessor, "Aye, but him as gets her'll
deserve it."
Old Truth Reaffirmed.
A Massachusetts widow wrote a
Kansas editor to find her a big-heart
ed, big-bodied, whole-souled westerner
for a husband. He printed the letter,
and replies are pouring in by the
bushel. Soon there w’lll be printed an
account of a wedding concluding with
the frank admission that it pays to
advertise. —Charlotte (N. C.) Observer.
Fitted for the Business.
"My son John,” proudly remarked
Mrs. McAllister to some one who had
Inquired about the family, “he's run
nin' the drug store now. He’s been
doing It for a year er more. You
know- he was to college an* studied
palmistry bo’s to fit himself for the
business.”
Advantage of Cheerfulness.
There are those who sneer at the
cheerful philosopher and call him a
cheerful idiot, but the cheerful Idiot
seldom goes adrift In his mind Those
who constantly travel the dark side of
melancholy street are the ones who
forget their real names and what they
ore here for.
Only Man Can Adapt Himself.
While men In all parte of the world
make their homes in exceptionally hot
or cold places and move from one to
the other without any apparent phys
ical discomfort. It is found that art
mals or plants whirl) would flourlsn
In one could not survHe in the other.
Selfish Interest.
"You seem to be developing a great
interest In conservation." "I am.” re
plied Mr. Cumrox. “If they keep cut
ting down the trees, there wron't be
any woode for me to take to when
mother and the girls get up these
rounds of social gayety."
Necessary Change.
Rev. Mr Hollers—“Mlstah Johnelng.
what fob you call dat son of yob’s
Izaak Walton, when he was baptised
George Washington?" Mr Johnson —
“Because, aah, det rascal's reputaahun
for verac'ty made dat change lmper*-
tlve.” —Christian Register.
Old Superstitions.
Coral beads formerly were worn
e round the neck of children to pre
vent nosebleed It was also believed
that a piece of brown paper placed
under the tongue of a child would stop
epletaxls.
His Birthday Present.
Father —"So, my dear boy. I wish
you many happy returns of the day.
and as a reward for your diligence
and good conduct I will get the dentist
to draw that bad old tooth that gives
you so much pain!"
Primitive Medicines.
Some of the early medical practi
tioners were very limited In the choice
of remedies Victor Hugo's family phy-
Biclan used only ammonia and cam
phor In different combinations.
Natural Curiosity.
On the hills of Abbeville, S. C., was
picked up a piece of quartz about the
size of a thimble. It contains a small
bend that shifts about and appears to
be a drop of water.
Music and Manners.
Tsu Kung. a pupil of Confucius, said,
“In any country it Is only necessary tc
hear Its music In order to know* If its
manners and customs are good or
bad."
A Jelly Face.
"When mamma asked If I’d been
stealing Jelly. I said yes.” "Why
didn't you deny?" “I didn't have the
face to say no." —Boston Transcript.
Missionary Entertainment to

Council of Three.
“Does your wife boss you?"
"I wouldn’t put it that way. I also
have two daughters, you know. I
work under a commission form of gov
ernment."
Wasted Effort.
“He Is one of those fellows who
shakes hls fist at the whole world."
"Exactly. And the more he shakes
hls fist at the world, the less attention
the world pays to him."
MUST HAVE BEEN.
Mr. Naggltt—He never said an un
tlnd word to hla wife.
Mra. Naggltt—How long baa he
been deaf and dumb?
The Ready Writer.
He wrote a novel in the spring.
He wrote one In the autumn;
But didn't realize a thing.
Because nobody bought 'em.
How Nice.
“Maybelle, have you heard the lat
est? Professor Wombat says that we
send out psychic waves."
“How nice. 1 shall have mine mar
celled ”
Valuable By-Products.
Albumen is made from blood se
cured at the packing houses and used
for setting the colors of printed fab
rics. Ashes from the hickory and
oobs used in smoking meats are used
for fertilizer. Certain hard bode is
ground up and used for case harden
ing steel. In this process the steel
implement is heated while immersed
in the powdered bone. Glue is made
from the hoofs and sinews.of animals.
News Disseminators.
A minister at a camp meeting was
delivering a discourse on pride, and
In cautioning the ladles against it. he
said: "And you. dear - sters, may feel
proud that our Lord paid you the dis
tinguished honor of appearing first to
one of you after the resurrection; hut
you have no reason for it, as It was
undoubtedly done that the glad tidings
might spread soooner."
