The Northeastern Colorado Football
league has started In anew, owing to
some teams In the league having
been playing Ineligible players. The
games played prior to the ruling of
the officials have been thrown out.
The league now comprises Holyoke,
Haxtun, Sterling, Merino. Brush, Ak
ron, Yuma and Wray.
Tile Holyoke high school met Hax
tun on the local gridiron Saturday
afternoon in the first game of the
new schedule and administered a
9—o defeat.
A stiff breeze was all that kept
the weather from being ideal for
football; but after playing in the hur
ricane on the Monday before, Satur
day's wind seemed but a zephyr to
the local eleven.
Holyoke won the toss and chose
to receive. They were given the
north goal. The ball was kept in
Haxtun's territory during the fcrst
quarter, and the locals made a touch •
down just before the whistle blew
for the end of the quarter. The long
est gain was made by Scunelder on
the “Aggie" play. Edgar made the
touchdown from the seven yard lihe
soon after, when he recovered a fum
ble and slipped through a hole in the
line. He kicked goal.
Haxtun came within two feet of
making a touchdown in the second
quarter, the man earning the ball
rolling out of bounds and into the
crowd on the sidelines when tackled.
They then lost the ball on a fumble
and Holyoke punted.
Haxtun made the mistake of taking
the kickoff in the third quarter at
the goal Instead of letting it go and
have the ball brought out twenty
yards. They came out to the middle
of the field, however, before losing
the ball, being helped by penalties
on their opponents. They were soon
penalized also, and finally fumbled
on the fourth down, only four yeards
from their goal. Holyoke failed to
make the touchdowu. Haxtun taking
the ball. Holyoke made a touchback
when Haxtun fumbled and let the
ball roll behind the goal In attempt
ing to punt, the down being made
well back of the goal posts and a
Haxtun man barely on the pigskin in
time to prevent Holyoke from secur
ing a touchdown.
Up to the last quarter the playing
had practically all been on the south
side of the field, but when goals were
changed at the beginning of the last
quarter the local eleven tried hard
for another touchdown. They came
within a yard of accomplishing it when
Haxtun was penalised, but lost on
down.*. They lost their last chance
on a fumble Into the crowd.
No very brilliant plays were made
on either side, the gains being small, j
and neither side was able to work
a forward pass. The local eleven 1
carried the light durlßS three quarters )
and after the second quarter was
never In danger.
The strong Starling eleven Invades!
the locals’ territory tomorrow, and 1
the Holyoke boys will be put to the
real test of their prowess.
If the unexpected always happens,
why not expect It?

I At the meetig of I. O. O. F. lodge
| No. 76, Tuesday evening, action was
j taken on the organisation of a new
Encampment for Holyoke. Haxtun
.and Fleming Odd Fellows. Members
1 from the neighboring towns were
'present, and it was decided to have
' the Camp at Haxtun, making it equal
j ly convenient for Holyoke and Flem
ing members. The matter is now in
charge of a committee and formation
will take place as soon as a charter
is received.
Visittug members from Haxtun and
! Fleming were given the glad hand
and some good eats by the local mem
bers at the meeting Tuesday even
Headers will observe that The
State Herald Is now The Phillips
County Herald. The old name, like
the fellow who kept adding to the
list of those he could lick, and re
turned with a face resembling a mod
ern hamburger steau, took in too
much territory.
If l the Herald were aa sensational
as some of the Denver papers, its
former name might t»e all right. And
it might not have been too large for
the former editors, but It is for us.
Having never been able to run on
high, we will do well to run a county
paper, hence the dropping of the state/
rtlon of the name. /
Work on the new E. E. Smith ele
vator is going right along, the pres
ent weather being most favorable.
The building will be finished about
January 1. and will have a 35,000
bushel capacity. Its height is 80 feet
above the tracks.
Mr. Smith was formerly a member
of the Relmer-Smlth Grain Company,
which was dissolved recently. Mr.
Paul Keitner now being sole owmer
of the local elevator and a half own

Churles Reitner, being half owner and
manager at Paoli.
The new 150 K. V. A. engine, which
is to be Installed at the muncipal
light plank has arrived ana will soon
be in place. As the bill of lading has
not arrived. It is still on tne car.
The eugine now in operation Is a
250 K. V. A. The new engine was
purchased for emergencies and will
be ready when additional power Is
needed. The present boiler is large
enough to mu both engines.
Holyoke has a splendid lighting
plant, with twenty-four hour service.
1 There Is nothing better than a
i drink of good water. This has al
[ways been true, though in times past
some people did not care much for it
only aa a chaaer. Since the elgh
[ teenth amendment has taken hold,
many prefer water to that which has
only one-half ef one per cent kick.
Colorado Springs boasts of Its pure,
'mountain soft water, but it has noth
ing on Holyoke. The water here is
las good as we ever drank, and so
soft It needs no breaking.

A newspaper Is generally taken a*
an index to a town. It reflects the
business life of the place where It It
published, us well as the pep an<|
ability of its editor. When a strang
er picks up u paper full of good adf
und sparkling with live news, he en
thusiastically exclaims, "By George,
that Is a good town."
Barring the present quietness there
is every indication that Holyoke It
u good town. We are going to make
The Herald a clean, readable paper,
toward which a liberal patronage will
l>o a big lift on a grade.
A newspaper, when properly man
aged, is as much of uu uplift to a
community us churches and schools.
Few people would locate In a town
where there were no ncnools or
churches, und a town of uny size
without a good newspaper causes al
most us much comment.
In taking over The Herald we found
the office contained the Book of
Books—the Bible—though quite duaty.
The second office we worked In,
where we were foreman for ten
years, the editor said he could not
run a paper without a Bible, if it did
get pretty dusty at times. He depart
ed this life in May, 1897, but we did
not forget his remark, and have never
tried to run a shop without the Great
; Book.
We huve the Bible our good moth
er gave us when arriving at the age
of twenty-one, und refer to it suffi
ciently often to keep it free from
dust. Along with the Bible we keep
a small dictionary our futher gave us
when a lad ut school in 1885.
We could not run a printshop with
out u Bible and dictionary.
The longer w’e roam over this big
country the more are we convinced
that sociability Is one of the biggest
of business assets. While we have
always been Khort In montery mutters,
we are pleased that we have been
long on sociability.
There is nothing cheaper in the
world than sociability. We have a
big stock on hand. Call aud sample
it. All it will cost is a little time.
