The wind slacked up very sudden ly yesterday for a few seconds, and it is reported that three men, who were leaning against it, fell down.— [Baton Range. Mr. E. S. Bradbury shipped two ear loads of haled alfalfa hay to Las Vegas last week. It brings $22 per ton at Las Vegas, and costs, sll per ton freight.—[La Junta Tribune. It is generally admitted that the President’s veto of the invalid pen sion bill was wise.—[Clark County Clipper. Ah there! como off. You make even the moss backs weary. A company has been organized at Lamar to tap the river near La Jun ta on the north side, and run a ditch to the state' line, covering a large ex tent of country with water opposite this town and Lamar. Mr. 11. 11. Holtnborg, the county surveyor, has been employed to locate the line.— [Las Animas Leader. The boom continues at Lamar. Certain real estate men are running free excursion trains, which bring hundreds of people to the town. Thousonds of dollars are being in vested weekly in town lots. Lamar is in the midst of a splendid agricul tural country, which is being rapidly settled, and will be one of the best towns in the st:\tc in a few years.— [Denver Tournal of Commerce. Calamity Jarte, a thoroughbred Texas Kiare, half sister to Moping Jack, Lopeared Hill and Ewe necked Bud, sired by Sway-back Pete, and dammed by Rawboned Ivate, which is now the property of llanns Mickle, had to be hobbled a few days ago to put her on equal footing in a race with the scrub stock owned and con trolled about the Southern hotel.— rEs- Recently a blank crop report was sent out by a Cleveland paper for the farmers to fill out, and one of them came back with the following written in pencil: ‘‘All we’ve got in this neighborhood is three widders, two school ma’ams, a patch of wheat, the hog cholera, too much rain, about fifty acres ’raters, and a dum fool who married a cross-eyed gal be cause she owns eighty sheep and a mule, which the same is me, no more at present.”—[Journal of Commerce. Hardly a day passes but some gen tleman calls at our office to look through the papers of neighboiing cities for the name of some firm or advertiser with whom thej' may wish to correspond. An advertisement in the local papers not unfrequently benefits a banker, real estate dealer, lawyer orother (inn, from this source alone more than the advertiser may surmise. A firm certainly has no means of knowing to what an extent an advertisement benefits them.— [Garden City Seutinel. Las Animas is on the verge of a boom and it only requires energy mixed with a little common sense to briug a full fledged one, but booms do not come by investing in town lots and waiting for some enterpris ing citizen to invest his capital in bringing it, for the express purpose of benefiting you. Start in your self, combine with your neighbor, draw allies from the next street, and work together. Co-operate in all parts of the town; don’t ask the newspapers, “Why don’t you boom the town?” Go to them and char ter their columns; make it au object for them to join you in the enthusi asm; don’t wait expecting some one else to do it, (if you do you will get left); take right hold Jand your re ward will he better appreciated than ;if you obtained it through others’ i e\eriiuii*.-f-[Lab Animas Leader.

WOMEN TOILERS. Rev. Charles II. Eaton, pastor of the church of the Divine Paternity, (Univcrsalist) New York, in a recent sermon, said there were 125,000 wo men who are breadwinners who have no male protectors, no means of sup port other than their own efforts. There are 32,500 out ot employment and 30,000 destitute. They are obliged to accept whatever wages are offered. They are trained sewing women, making waists at two and a half cents each. One woman is re ported who was able to make twen tp five cents a day, working nineteen hours. You go out some day and buy a cloak, satin lined and quilted. Well, it is perhaps made by a woman who makes fifty or sixty cents work ! ing fifteen or sixteen hours a day. Similar statistics come from Buf falo. Women make trousers for fiom twelve and a half to twenty five cents, and shirts for from six and a fourth to twelye and a half cents. They earn from $1.50 to $5.00 a week. Overalls are made for six ty-two cents a dozen, flannel shirts for one dollar a dozen. Mr. A. Nichols, a Bent count farmer of several years experience, says that wheat raising would earned on to a large extent by ourjjp farmers if some ono would erect jtjT flouring mill at a convenient pointal A few years ago he and his ncigliM; hors raised wheat very successful!yMp but abandoned this crop on aecouuK, of the groat distance to a mill. LaK Junta is a most desirable point font such an enterprise. FarminglandslD are being rapidly opened up on eith- V cr side of the town. It is so situated -l| as to be a most convenient shipping JB point, being directly connected with Kansas on the east, New Mexico and Arizona on the south and the great »» mining regions of Colorado on thejgfc west.—[La Juuta Tribune. It seems that a boom now-a days, like anything else, costs money, andwfr any individual or community who*B wants one must pay for it. This is kB a fact, strange as it appeals. Booms jail don’t fly on the wings of a wind H storm and light at your feet loDg B enough for you to put salt on their Bp tails; they don’t come by chance and Hj linger with you awhile like a pooracJ relative or a hungry tramp; they aro»y not thrust upon you like greatness orIpM the small pox; they don’t turn upf-9 wheu you are waiting for them likojrl Ilenry Vigar’s outhouse did Thursday, nor can you get them by| n flattery or “natural resources.” Itf‘_3[ takes money —good, old-fashioned,\5q# big round'dollars, or little, “yellow boys”*to catch the bird Las-*’ Animas has been after for several* , years.
