BENT COUNTY REGISTER. Volume !I. LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, DEC. 3, 1887. ROCKY ( FORD, Bent County, Colorado. The wonderful opening Kale of town lot* at ROCKY FORD, ou April 12, 188 7, amounting to $77,000,00, and which has since, i» v Uter sales, been augmented to the astonishing figures ef nearly $.10,000,00, has attracted widespread attention in Colorado and Iwnsius, Ihe history of no town on the lines of the A.,T. &S. F. Railroad a (Turds a parallel to this opening sale, either in the mag* mm. oof the amounts invested,or the intense earnestness displayed .by the 400 purchasers who were present. The movement was spontaneous. '1 here was an utter lack of any attempt to generate an unnatural excitement. The results attained are entirely due to the genuine merits of the location itself, backed by a beautiful and productive country. Let it be noted that some twenty-four contracts, each calling for a building to cost not less than $l,OOO, Mini an equal number requiring the construction of buildings of the value of $5OO, were executed on the day of sale. ROCKY FORD J Is located on the south slope of the Arkansas river, 50 milea«east J of Pueblo and 65 miles west of Lamar. It lies in the center of | the Pueblo land district, and commands a splendid scope of country, both north and south. IRRIGATION I Is here successfully and extensively pursued. The Catlin and Rocky Ford Cauuls cover as tint* an area of rich black soil as can be found any where between Pueblo ond Kansas City. The great Fowler Canal on the south and the Bob Creek Canal on the north, now iu course of construction, will add to the irrigable area au immense territory of productive soil. The region aboa ROCKY FORD is already celebrated for its • products ond grrat shipments of vegetables, and has long since been regarded as the true garden spot of Colorado. The Town | Company, with the aid of a long experience in the varied ques tions incidental to the bnilding of towns, purpose to establish on a sound and permanent basis the ROCKY FORD. They point with pride to the towu of Lamar, which sprang up principally from their exertions. j OFFICERS OF THE COMPASTI i JOHN E. FROST, Pressdent. r G. \V. SWINK, Vice-President. . COLONEL A. S.

It was a picture to watch the peo ple hurrying along the streets last night for home.* The fact that many of them had their summer clothes on yet, caused them to hustle a little more lively than usual.—Pueblo Chieftain. We are reliably informed that the Chivington branch of the Gould sys tem will take a soutwestern course from Lamar, striking Atlanta, hence through Soldier's pass aud on to Trinidad, where connections will be made with other branches.—Atlanta Democrat.

A man named George Tete was as sessed thirty days in jail yesterday by Judge Yeaman, for insulting ladies. The arrest was made by Policeman Vaughn who wishes us to say that if ladies who are annoy ed in this way would promptly re port the matter to the polico that the prosecution would be easier.—Trini dad Advertiser. It used to bo said that Pueblo en joys 365 days of sunshine each year. 1 hat time is past owing, we suppose, to the great influx of Kansas Jay hawkers into “The Italy of America.” At any rate a ray of sunlight has not blessed us for four days; but we have been experiencing instead a young Kansas blizzard and snow storm. —Pueblo Star.

A Boston man who makes rasp berry jam for a living is authority for the statement that “we don't use any raspberries at all iu making the jam.” What “we” do use, it appears, are tomatoes, and glucose and hay seed and a “little prepared raspberry flavor.” Chaos might as well come again. When raspberry jam turns out to be a delusion aud snare, to what or to whom shall the public give its confidence. 33x\ J. S- Haetv OHIO* over P. O. Drug Store, Lamar. Colo rado. » Dr. G. W.

The rainfall of the past Rammer io Arizona has been unprecedented, and the oldest inhabitants look upon it as phenomenal, and enter into the general belief that the climate Is gradually changing,or that it is being revolutionised through natural but hidden causes. However this may be, th** continued rainfall has been a surprise toall, and its contingent ben efits will be incalculable to the pros pectors and iniuers.—Tucson, Ariso ns, Citizen. A large gray wolf viaited the premises of Larry Lanham, a few miles south-weal of town, last week, and made free with some of Lar v*s choicest chickens. On .he following night hia wolf-ship returned to re peat the performance, but on enter ing the ohicken bouse fouud his head in a well placed noose which the frautio efforts of the victim only serv ed to tighten. The rope was manip ulated with such success that the chicken thief was dangling from a rafter, and Larry is now the hapiest man in Las Animas county.—Spring field Advertiser.

This outfit were not from the old country, but from the southern states, as could be seen from the ap pearance of their great pile of bag gage. One big valise had strapped to it a bag of fragrant sassafras root. Another piece of baggage came loose and spilled big fat yams. The pos sessor of it evidently supposed sweet potatoes don’t grow iu Colorado.— Pueblo Chieftain. A church building is sadly needed ia Rocky Ford. People coming into this city, as a rule, look first for a school building then a church. While we have a good building for temparary use, kindly furnished by Mr. Capron, it cannot be depended on too long. Next spring that will be a valuable businese corner and he will not feel disposed to have it used for that purpose, then we will be left. It looks to us like some of the denominations who have fuuds for that purpose would spend a little of it here. Every citizen in town would subscribe liberally to any denomina tion who would build a church.— Rocky Ford Enterprise. In former times foreigners used to throng to Cairo to see that revolting ceremony called the Dosah, which ia a part of the celebration of the Mnhd en Nebi, or the proyhet’s birthday. They may not see it more, because it was owing to Mr. Butler and his ar guments that the Khedive abolished it. The Dosah was a minor Jugger naut business For a distance of 300 yards dervishes would lie fiat ou the ground, making a living pavement as wide as the length of a man, and ovor his human road bed the sheik of the dervishes would ride on horse back. “It was a stout cob,” is the way the author describes (he and the sheik was no light weight. Tho devout Mohammedan believes that, by the miraculous intervetiou of the prophet, nobody is hurt, but Mr. Butler declars that many died from injuries thus received and were sent out of Cairo to be buried. The sheik of the dervishes is believed to go from one faint into another on this horrible occas'on. Mr. Butler examined the horse’s feet and found that he was shod in the eastern man ner—a round iron plate covering the bottom of the hoof. It is due to Mr. 3utler to state that remonstrating with the Khedive there was uo Don ah.—New York Times Book Review.
