MORRISON, Manager. 3L&M&B, « COLOB J.SQEO, BENT COUNTY REGISTER. LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, SEPT. 11 ISMO. How the Supreme Court is Opened. To begin with, says the Washing 1 ton Star, there is a degree of dignity and stately bearing about the court and its members which permeates even to the most humble attache. There is a quiet in the courtroom which recall the sabbath of the Cov j enanters. When one enters, the in voluntary feeling comes on that the room is set aside only for the con. temptation of the sober side of life, and woe to him who jibes and jokes 1 in the presence ot the court. At 12 [ o’clock (noon) the justices come in from the consulting-room and ! take their •seats on the bench, away to the left of the chamber is seen a youthful officer, whose busi ness it iM to catch the glimpse of the advansing judges. Then comes ' three raps with a ponderous gavel by the same officer. This is ment as a signal for the audience to rise. Then with the chief justice in ad vance, the judges enter from the right of the chamber. To the rear of the justices’ seat is an aisle. In the center is an arched entrance for the chief justice. Through this aisle the judges file and take positions on ! the right and left. None enter until the chief justice emerges from the center entrance. Aft£r all have tiled in, the chief justice makes a ■ graceful obesance to the standing audience. Then the judges take seats, a stroke of the gavel is made* and the audience seats itself. The j opening of the court falls on a 1 youthful officer. It is after the old English form. “Oh, yea; oh, yea,” etc., and concludes with the word “God bless the honorable supreme I court. ” The court is now ready for businc.-s. All the justices’ are clad in black silk gowns with an ecclesi astical cut. —The over stocking of the Kent county range is imminent, by per sons not owning land nor water rights, and by a few that have man • aged to get a foot hold. This ques tion will be presented by the stock men at the meeting next Tuesday night, and all persons interested should be there. —John Flaritv, the Cattle Inspector was in town last night after a fatigu ing trip, extending over several davs along the line of the railroad, He j reports the following shipments of! | beeves during the week: Frank Collinson, on Sunday, front Lamar to Kansas City, 488 head. SS outfit from Holly, on Thurs day, to Chicago, 424 head. The cattle he reports in good ■ shape and liable to bring a good j price. FROM THE LAS ANIMAS LEADER. ; —Joe Like was in town Tuesday, enrout to Kansas City to seek medi cal treat ment for the bite of a pole cat. Joe was bitten on top of the I head while sleeping on the ground’ ; on the Carzo’ last Sunday night. —J. C. Jones handed us, the other day’ several stalks of millet that have longer and larger heads than any we have seen this season, and demonstrates the enormous yield this plant has and the success at tending its culture.

Mrs. < levelend’s marriage certifi cate is thus described by the Wash ington Critic: “Mrs. Cleveland’s marriage certificate is a very inter esting document. It rests on a bed iof blue velvet, and in an allegator portfolio about twelve inches long and eight inches wide. In the up per left hand corner of the certificate is a very pretty picture of the White Mouse, drawn by that eminent artist, Mr. O. L. Prudeii, the President’s assistant secretary. The certificate was sent around to all that was at the wedding so that they could sign it as a witness.” Mr. P. F. Sharp says but little, but from the way he is busily en gaged arranging bis family and business affairs it looks as though he had some assurance of that latid ; office appointment. All of his Pueblo friends—and they are a large majority of the people—will rejoice to hear ol his good luck.— Pueblo Chieftain. A private letter from a gentleman in Bent to J. A. Ligon says a ship ment of 000 beef cattle was to have j been made at Lamar this week. There will be no other shipments to speak of before the 20th, cattlemen holding back a Pitle for hotter prices.
