BENT COUNTY REGISTER. LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, JULY 31, 1886. We are in receipt of the following notice from the land office which will be of interest to all interested: TO APPLICANTS FOR FINAL PROOF. And Newspapers Publishing Final Proof Notices. Hereafter, all applications for fi nal proof must l>e accompanied by the cost of publication, and no notice will be issued unless a remittance, covering the usual fees is in hand. Newspapers will forward all proofs of publication to this office direct, instead of, as heretofore, furnishing the same to the various proof-taking officers. This office will be respon sible for the publisher’s fees, uuless otherwise stated at the time of trans mission of the notice, and the pub lishers shall send in their bill, to gether with the proof of publication, to this office only. It is customary to allow ample time between the date of last publi cation and date of settlers final proof to enable the newspapers to furnish the proof of publication; but almost I daily we are obliged to suspend final i proofs because the publisher’s proof : and affadavit are lacking. We oesire | to establish a*uniform system which will protect the publisher in his fees, as well as ensure the immediate transmission of the proofs of publi cation to the land office. Publisher* will please note that it is a matter of much importance to this office, as well as to the settler, that the proof of publication be sent in at once upon the termination of the designated period; and we ask in return for the security which we guarantee them that no failures oc cur in this respect. Error in printed notice can only be corrected by re publication. Please, therefore, read proof carefully by copy. William Bayard, Register. U. S. Laud Office, Pueblo, Colo., July 16th. 1886.

BAYARD. Register. We have frequently reminded our western ranchmen that it would be a wise policy for them to pursue to put up all the hay they could wherewith to feed their stock during the winter months, or at least sufficient to heip bridge over a blizzard or two whicu are likely to come along during the winter. Our new-comers, who are carrying ou a mixed industry and who in many instances have brought in pilgram stock not used to the country, nor acclimated, who have trot the deluted idea into their minds that no prepared teed is necessary in this country, but who readily find out the first blizzard that comes along that their cattle will turn towards their corrals and look foi something to eat there, which has not been pro vided for them, and the result is that they perish. All such stock have been fed during Ptormy weather in the east and they look for it here, and if they do not get it they will die. So we say, let everybody who can, put up feed for his stock and be on the safe side.—[Dodge City Globe. A recent Aspen dispatch says: Under Sheriff Stewart has served a capias on county assessor W. L. Clark, he having been indicted by the grand jury for charging 25 cents for each tax schedule certified to by him. The case will involve a fine point of law and will establish a pre ! cedent for future assessors. He was I placed under 4200 bonds. D. R. C*. Brown, one of Aspen’s wealthiest and most prominent citi- j zeus, was also arrested on an indict- j ment issued at the same time on a j [ charge of selling an interest in a j mining property twice. He was' ; placed under 4500 bonds. The ar- j ! rests caused a great sensation in the | ! city owing to the prominence of the j parties. The entire Roaring Fork valley' was deluged with a most welcome ; rain of six hours duration this after inoon. Hourard Ross is a gay young lad whose clothes always fit him just right. He is considerable of a wag in his way, and a few days ago he ordered a new pair of trousers. He is fond of a neat fit, and had his measure taken accordingly. Later he got to looking at the styles, and the result was that he sent word down to the tailor that “wanted those pants sober.” After consulting every body on the block the tailor finally caught on to the fact that the trou sers were not to be made tight.— [Merchant Traveler. Woman is now declared by law to possess, in South Carolina, one right that is not always accorded to her, that is to say, the right to kill a man who speaks ill of her. Noqrly all communities accord to v» , with more or less limitation, the right to shoot, stab and kill, when man has done an irreparable injury, but South Carolina is the first to for mally put calumnv in the category of irreparable injuries.—[Pueblo Chieftain. A dispatch from Idaho Springs of the 21st, says: The heaviest rain and hail storm that has been known on Bear Creek since the settlement of that place oc curred there yesterday. The whole valley seemed a sheet of raging wa ter. Ex-Governor Evans’ ranch seemed a vast lake. The bridges from Evans’ ranch to the Platte are all swept away, and the crops in many instances are a total loss. Wall street is very patriotic now in its efforts to save the credit of the the nation. But when the credit of the nation was at stake on a hundred Southern battle fields, Wall Street staid at home and gambled in gold and government bonds.

C. Hopper came in yester day from Hardscrabble canon and park, near the “big hill.” He reports a terrible hail storm in that section on Tuesday eveniug, and on Wed nesday there was a big rain storm in the same place. He reports that not less than 10,000 bushels of grain were threshed out by Tuesday's hail storm, and says that Messrs, Vaughn, . Blakely, Porter, Henderson, Sykes brotners, Wetmore, W. P. Coleman, Jessie Coleman and Dr. Baker all lost heavily by the storm. During the rain storm on Wed nesday the lightning struck Mr. James Lewis's house, breaking his cooking stove into smithereens and killing the cat which was sleeping underneath the stove. A young lady who was in the house, but whose name Mr, Hopper did not know, was stunned and shocked, but has since come around all right and is now veil.—[Pueblo Chieftain. The rains up the Arkansas yester day poured into it from some source a flood of very black slime. About 1 o’clock in the afternoon the water turned black and thick, being also pretty high, so that the tish could not get their breath. They rose to the surface in great numbers to get air, and were easily caught. Fora while the river banks were lined wfyh people catching fish. Fine fish were taken out by the basketful. Some of them were big fellows, j weighing ten or twelve pounds, j Boyß were seen coming away with jail the fish they could carry. After j a time the water began to look more j like water, and then the fish went j below the surface and uo more were , caught.—[Pueblo Ciii« a ftaiu. Rheen, of the Smithsonian Insti i tute, has contradicted much of the j popular belief concerning snakes. The veneinous hoop-snake, which : takes its tail in its mouth and rolls 'along like a hoop, and the blow snake, the breath of which is deadly, exist only in the imagination. The idea that serpents sting with the tongne is erroneous. Au impression prevails that the number of poison ous snakes ier great, but in North America there are but three species the rattlesnake, the copperhead, or moccasin and the coral. Snakes do not jnrnp; they reach suddenly for ward, |K?rhaps half the length of their bodies. The A. T. *fc S.

What pleases only for the moment, whether poetry, or oratory,or policy, will die with the moment. What looks beyond the moment will live beyoud the moment. What speaks to the intelligent few will at last make a conquest of the uuintellig, many; what speaks only to the u telligent many will never reach intelligent few, and will soon gotten by the unintelligent ~|| also.—[Dean Stanley. ; Col.

Fireman Frank Prester, and a man by the name of Owens were killed and the eugineer Sid Hackett seri ously injured in a wreck five miles from San Martial, New Mexico. J. L.
