Court conveins at Las Animas Monday. - The mountain stock growers asso ciation, headquarters at Trinidad, will begin their fall round up the 15th. This will always be known as a cattle country, but the herds will be small and the grade of stock much better. Dodge City has not altogether given up the ghost as a cattle ship ing point. The Globe says, one thousand head was shipped from there last week. “The dutch have taken Holland”, and the grangers have taken Kansas Kansas range cattle are passing through here by the train Ioo«ls for ■western ranges almost daily. There will be a big addition to the Scotch settlement in the spring we hear. We hope the report is true for they are demonstrating their usefulness in this country. Nothing would do Cedar Rapids, lowa but an artician well, and after they got it they had to send to Chi cago for help to plug the hole up to keep the tow u from being washed away. Earth shocks were plainly felt in the east and southern states last Tuesday evening. Ihe city ol j Charleston. S. C. was greatly dam aged, one hundred persons killed, and many injured. Three hundred and forty, fat three year old steers, w'eut east from Pueblo, passing here Monday They came up from Texas when year lings and took tlieii size and fat on Colorado ranges. There is no doubts about the grow th of Lamar or the, success of farming in Bent county. Every thing promises well f *r La-tern Col orado, is the admission of ail whe have visited this country. Tilk soil arotiud Lunar is as good for the growing of crops as any lo cality between Kansas l ity and l*u eblo, and the men who are taking up lue govciniuei laud in ibis vicin ity, will prove our words true. We are unable to tell by reading the Exponent whether it is publish ed at new or old Granada. They talk about their station agent when their nearest station is ihiec miles away and other thing that corres pond. We have been having regular fall weather the last few days, cool nights and mornings and the days hazy like Indian summer. From now until Christmas is the most pleasant time of the year in this country. Some people who come to Lamar, expect to see street cars, electric lights, and water works, and this in a town of three mouths and one week since it was raw prairie, but such folks can’t help the way they are, they were made that way. The Garkiei.d monument that was to have been built to a height of two hundred and tweny five feet, is announced will now stand, when completed one bundled and fifty feet, and if contrributors do not come forward a little more freely , a hundred or less feet, will be about the size of the monument.- The American people are great on start ing subscription papers but very poor in finishing tip the work. Saji Jones says he does not care what the newspapers say about him, and when he makes such state ments, we-do not believe he lives up to his preaching. Wonder now if Sam lias'ut got a few newspaper clippings saying he is a great preacher tucked away in his vest pocket. Lightning struck a powder maga- ■ r.ine in the suberbs of Chicago last Sunday which exploded, killing foui persons am! injured many. The shock caused a stampeei in a Cith- ( olic church where many were injured in their endevors to get out. Houses close to the magazine, were blown to atoms. So far in the history of uur city 1 there has been no serious sickness | among our people, and in time this 1 will be known, as it is. one of the 1 liealthyest locations in all the west, which of itself, is one of the great- 1 est attractions a country can have, hut this is only one of many we 1 are blessed with. 1 Tukkk is not .a paper in Eastern Colorado but what is talking up our tanning advantages' Some of them just a little for it i- a new idea, to them Some, have heretofore deriv ed their support from the cattle in- terest, ami are a little slow intaking hold of the new order of tilings, hut are mcreaing their granger items little by little. I> is only a question * of time when they *ill ail accept ' ihe situation :uul boom our glorious valley. Til* desire to invest capital in , Mexico, is not as great now a-* it has been for a few years p.ist, and it is ( mi secret that many of those who j ihvc money invested in Mexico, ■re ( •xccedingly anxious to get their is- • crest out of that country. The ! Americans have got a disgu-t in store for the Mexicans that it would take many years of very tine treat ment to icinove. This is denied by the pai»ct» and leading men of the mtion bat i? i- a fact never.thc Im. Aun unsavory rejs.rt ol the ' tetioiis of General Sedgwi* k, Mr. Bayard's appointee to investigate our international troubli w ith Mex ico, comes up from that country. I'lie General, strongly, denies reports says he has act*-d the gentle man while down there at least. Be that as ii may, we seem to be un fortunate in the Cutting case from beginning to end, and the | pie of the United States, wouid be pleased • o bvae the whole matter settled with credit to our nation. —JrsT now when reports from east, west, north, and south all speak •>f an unusual amount of sickness, we of Lamar ami B»*nt county have much to he thankful for in tin- uua versul good health our people enjoy. It would seem tiiat our loeaton is a favored spot, for cousidebh* sick ness is reported as m-ar as l*ueblo j on the west and Garden city on tlte east. These towns sp-ak of this , being the sickly time of the year, but with our fine writer, heallhgivug air, ami an open country where the winds of themselves purify what otherwise might be lurking germs of decease, all seasons are alike healthy.
