LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1887. During the thunder storm that oc curred last week, four of Mr. Thos. IJeansean’s horses were killed, three of them being very fine mares and the other a young colt. The loss is ; felt very keenly by Mr. Beansean, as |ho did not feel able financially to! j donate so much to the “devouring ! ! element.”—Elbert Tribune. : They raise Irish potatoes that weigh six and a half pounds down ! in Montrose County and pumpkins j which turn the beam at one hundred ! pounds. It would be a good idea to ! get some of them to Denver for the j Exposition. It has only been a few years since what is now known as ; Montrose County was a part of the ; LTte lieservation. There would be ' especial interest in seeing what could be done in so short a time.—Denver i Journal of Commerce. Mr. Graham, of the firm of J. W. Graham & Go., was in town on] Monday looking tip an abstract of! the property of the Ben York ranch ; at Caddoa, with a view to purclias- j ing it and stocking it with a high ! grade of cattle.

A curious book indeed is ;ih algc j bra, published shortly before the war by I). 11. Hill, then Professor of 1 of Mathematics in Davidson College, North Carolina, and afterwards a Confederate general of celebrity. Professor Hill was “sectional” in his | feelings, as the following problem, one out of many like it in animus, ■ demonstrates : “A Yankee mixes a ! certain number of wooden nutmegs, which cost him one quarter of a cent apiece, with a quantity of real nut • megs worth four cents apiece, and sells the whole assortment for forty four dollars, and gains $3.75 by the ■ fraud. How many wooden nutmegs were there?”—Publishers Bulletin. Among the members of the Board jof Visitors to West Point this year was Dr. William Everett, of Mas sachusetts. At the banquet given ! to the Board of Visitors during the j closing exercises at the Academy the ! doctor took occasion to inform the j guests that he was a Mugwump aud : wanted everybody to know it. This ‘ statement brought Mayor Courtenay jof Charleeston, South Carolina, to | his feet, aud he said it reminded him af a story. 1 About the time the Mugwurup.first 1 sprung into existence an English lord was visiting this country and de voted much attention to the study of our institutions and manners. The : constant use of the term “Mugwump” during the political campaign attract !cd his notice, so oue day he made : bold to ask an American friend what the word “Mugwump” meant. “A Republican who votes the Democratic ticket,” was the reply. “And what would you call a Dem who votes the Republican ticket?” next inquired the curious English man. “I'd call him a d—n fool,” was the friend’s •rompt response. The guests are said to have enjoy ed the hit immensely, with, perhaps, the possible exception of the Mng ; wurap from the Bay State.—New York Sun. | Gum chewing is a habit indulged in by a great many ladies of refine ment aud culture whoso dainty stom achs would be turned in seven differ ent directions if they could see the stuff in the course of manufacture.

Down in Bent county, on Sand Creek- on the old battle ground where Colonel Ghivington with the Colorado troops slew the hordes ot Indians twenty odd years ago, now sprung up a thriving little village of farm people. Corn and cabbage now grow where once the earth was white with Indian bones. Near where will stand the village school house, the once dreaded Blackkettle yielded up his life and became a “good Indian.”—Field and Farm. When John Sherman was seerctry of the treasury the orphan daughter of an army officer applied for a sit uation. There was none for her —nothing that she could do. But she persisted. She knew there was plenty she could do, and the secre tary was at a loss by what pretext he could dismiss her. She surveyed him from head to foot, and observing that his boots were not well shined remarked with much earnestuess, “Mr. Sherman, I think there is some thing I can do for you, if you will permit me. and that is to give your boots a first-class shine. My case is more desperate than you im agine, and I will accept a position as departmcntol bootblack.” The sec retary was so astonished that it was several seconds before ho recovered sufficiently to direct his clerk to have the young lady appointed to a $900 clerkships. She has since mar ried and is doing well.—New Or leans Times-Democrat. A Bismarck woman was inquir ing about a wreck. She had ex pected her husband on the train that was thrown from the bridge. The conductor did not know of a man of her name on the train, but said a man who was talking about the “Missouri slope” just before the accident occurred, was killed. “IIow did ho talk, enthusiastically or indifferent?” “Enthusiastically—very.” “Oh, indeed ! What were his last words?” “Well, as I remember, the car was lying on top of him, am] he was in argument with another passenger who was also about squeezed out. The last words he said wore: “I tell you, my friend, if you say that Bismarck won’t have another railroad-this-year-you-arc-a-liar,” Then, turning his eyes on the man who escaped, said: “If you want that lot you’d better close the deal quick. There will bo three more roads in Bismarck this year, electric lights have been se cured, water-works will be’—but ho died before the sentence was finish ed.” “Ah, yes, ’twas he.” the woman murmered in a heart-broken tone, “but lie did make the sale, and you really think we will have another road this year?”—Bismarck Tribune, SALT.
