Tiik rain belt line will have passed west of Lamar inside of two years. Lamar will be the biggest town between Pueblo and Garden City be fore Christmas. Scott Bullard, a con boy at Ster ling, this state, suicided by taking morphine Tuesday. The timber on the north side of town will cause the blizzaids next winter to slacken up a little. General Fairciukld, of Wiscon sin, has been elected cominander-in chief of the G. A. U. for the next year. Pukbi.o county wants a fair this fall, big enough and old enough to have one. The south ditch will soon be com pleted to Lamar and then we will have water works. It was a mistaken *.des that the heated term was over for this season. August is a hot month Thk great'-.-.i - orm of the year i predicted September 29th, to extend from the Atlantic to the Kockv Mountains. We expect nothing else but to hear electric lights talked of for Lamar soon. Nothing seems to be too good for Lamar. The wires would have to be all down with no hope of speedy repairs if a Kentucky murder was not re ported every morning. Dispatches announce that the President will make no more ap pointments until after his summer vacation which will last three weeks or more. During a shower one afternooon last week at Pueblo, lightning killed a horse, a cow ami struck two tree.-. The democrat politicians were in cyclone boles. The men who thought it the prop er caper some time ago to tight La mar, now see their error and have drawn in their horns. They see the band-writing on the wall. There is talk of building a church in Lainar. The idea is not a good one at the present time, better build a school house where all denomina tions can hold services on the Sab bath. Girls in the east who cannot ob tain employment at over a dollar or a dollar and a half a week, had bet ter come to Colorado where domes tics get from four to five dollars a week. At least twenty-five thousand men have been organized into companies and telegraphed onr government that they are ready to march on Mexico. Ten times that number could be raised in sixty day- Wk know of lots in Lamar that j could have been bought two weeks ago for fifty dollars each, that sold last Saturday at ninety dollars each; Property is changing hand* fast, and - new buildings are going tip all over ■, town. j A pass knurr on the east bound * eanuon ball a*Tew nights ago said ail the passengers in the sleeper re 1 fused to retire for the night until they passed Lamar. They all wanted to get a glimpse of the much talked of town. Pkok. Foster, the Iowa weather man says there w ill be some terrible storms in the middle and eastern states about the sixteenth of thi* mouth. What a pity the folk* back there couldn’t get to Colorado before that time. Tins extreme hot weather with the change of climate and water with maiiv of our people will surely ii * i cause sickness unless the greatest rare is taken in the way of diet, and more than ordinary care generally to preserve health. 'l*iik Las Vegas Optic nouiiuates 1 Clay Allis.m is delegate to congress from New Mexico on the democratic ticket. Clay is well known in these t parts and the l»oys would like to see • • him nominated just t<* see the fur ' tty in that territory. A crowd of men made the night ! hideous at La Junta one night last week, firing off revolvers and yelling about the streets. The Tribune sav* such things must be *top|>ed, and wc should iliiuk that town was old enough to bshave without being foreed to. A Montana paper tells about a cowboy lassoing a will goose. It* a pretty tough slorv, and e oning from Montana where the cow papers rejH*rt a calf to every animal in the h.-. i. sic.-rs and all. witii the spring 1 round up. In spite of desire to be li.-v e, w c doubt. It docs not make much difference where the land office i» located in ! town, bui the people north of tin track say tliey bought lots and put up their building* with the di'Mnct understanding that the land office would Ik- located on the 11• >rt.li side, and they should not he di*api»oiiited.

They arc both first cbiss workmen ami reliable men, who do not slight their work i and do just what they agree to every little.

Bkfork Congress adjourned the | Senate failed to confirm surveyor ■ General Julian, of New .Mexico, aad 1 unless the president reappoints the \ ‘old gentleman. In* will have to go. ' 1 Cp to a few years ago Mr. Julian was a republican, but turned over to i the democrats, so now, has but few trieinbl in either eatup. Thk principal part of the United j States Army are in New Mexico and Arizona and for two years have been try ing to surpress the Apache In dians, who all this time h .ve been j robbing settlers. Up to d tte the ar- 1 my has not succeeded in killing ten j Indians, but are some on keeping j on a hot trail, not too hot, but just | ho? enough *o a fight. L; Pukblo is alike interested with i the towns from here, there, in having ! trains run so that the people of the ; valley can go to and return** from Pueblo in one day: People are nut to desirous of doing business at Pu eblo that they will spend two nights and a day to get to their town, when ; they can go to Trinidad and return i in a day, or go to ('oolidge or Gar den City :*n«t return in a day Pu , j eblo is a big town and the people of I | the valley naturally occasionally ■ have business there. I itk wonderful change in one week since it ha* been a certainty j that Lamar was in have a land office ionlv goes to show how eager people •ire to settle in a good loan in the west. Every train now brings men who are seeking for investment, a j business location or a home, all branches of business and trades are represented by these new comers, i who are anxious to get here and till 1 the field before others get ahead of I them. * Thirty days will see great '•lianges in our town, while sixty days will find a city where less than three months ago was nothing but the open prairie.
