LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, DEC. 31, 1887. *“ FORI, leniOounfy, Colorado. Tlie vonita: f'.il opening .ale of (own lots at ROCKY FORD, on April 12, I*B7, unonnting to *77,000,00, an.l which has since, I'V later sa.rs, beei/augniented to the astonishing figures of nearly .00,000,00, has attracted widespread attention in Colorado and jvan-as, 'I he history of no town on the lluea of the A., T. at S. F. Kai Iruad affords a parallel to this opening sale, either in the insg tiiiu eof tho amount* inv«»ted,or tho intense earnestness displayed l>y the 40 » I'ircl,users who were present. The nio\ t-moiit was 'I taneoua. There was au*nlter lack of any attempt to generate nn unnatural exoitemenl. The results attained are entirely due to the genuine merits of the loeation itself, hacked by a beautiful and productive country. Let it he noted that some twenty-four contracts, each calling for a building to cost tint less than *l,OOO, and an equal number requiring tho construction of buildings of the value of *uoo, were executed on the day of sale. ROCKY FORD I* located on tho south slope of the Arkansas river, 50 miles east of l*ucb!o and G 5 miles west of Lamar. It lies in the center of the* Pueblo land district, and commands a splondid scope of l country, both north auil south.— IRRIGATION Is here successfully and extensively pursued. The Catlin and Rocky Ford Canals cover as fine an area of rich black soil as can he found anywhere between Pueblo oml Kansas City. The great Fowler Canal on the south and the Hob Creek Canal' on the north, now in course of construction, will add to the irrigable area an i immense territory of productive soil. The region abou ROCKY FORD is already celebrated for its products and great 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 iu tho varied ques tions incidental to tho bnilding of towns, purpose to establish on a sound and permanent basis the ROCKY FORD. They point with pride to the town of Lamar, which sprang up principally from their exertions. GFFItTSBS 8F THS S&MPAMTi ’ j JOHN E. FROST, Prcssdent. li. \V, SVVINK, Vice-Tresident. COLONEL A. S.

Cor.cMBUS, 0., Dec. 25. —The fol lowing has been received here: Mt. Vbrxon, 0., Dec. 25, 1887. To the Wool-growers of the United Slates: The sentiment favoring free trade in this country has been augmented to the extent of the President’s influ ence. In announcing his -sympathy with those who do not encourage American industries and domestic labor, the Executive has emphasized his contempt for your industry by proposing the repeal of all duties on imported wools. You number about 1,000,000 voters and give employ, ment to about 1,000,000 more, and •■very State and nearly every county in each State of the United States lias flocks and Hock-masters. Your flocks generally are small, your wealth limited and your locations so scattered as to-render organization and united action difficult. Once the producers of 000,000,000 pounds of wool annually, at about £ 100,000,000, you have seen the unfriendly legislation of 1885, check your growth and actually re duce your flocks in number and your annual clip in qaantity to the extent of 15 per cent. These results fol lowed that small reduction of protect ive duties. Now the President propos es their abolition so that South Amer ica and Australia, with other foreign nations, can supply the consumption of the United States spindles and looms. The officers of your national so ciety desires to organize resistance to this cruel attempt in order to se •urc its defeat by active consolidat ed resistance. I advise that you pe • ilion Congress freely from all parts jf (be country. Send letters to the Congressmen from every district; have each association of wool grow ers, State, county, township or town, •pass and forward appropriate resolu tions. Incite the grangers or as>*o ciations of husbandmen to unite iheir voices with yours iu urging Congress to promote the welfare of agriculture. Enfranchised freemen may obtain justice and avoid oppression by muk ing those in authority understand their wants. If you have not a large consolidated wealth you have votes. Exercise wisely the power which this privilege gives. The founders of our republic placed in the hands of its people the power to correct the errors of those who make or admin ister our laws without insurrection or violence. The Executive has been misinformed. Remove this de ception and let him and the nation know that you will not submit to the proposed injustice without a res olute struggle. (Signed) C. Dklano.

Numbkk 29. Colorado Cattle. “Within one hundred square miles of Cby enue, Wyoming Territory, are herds rang ing from 1000 to 35,000 head of cattle. Their average value is stated to be S2O per head. In this territory the losses among cuttle from all causes are only put down at 2J per cent, per annum. In Texas and other districts the losses are estimated from sto 10 per cent. A herd of 10,000 cattle should annually produce from 1500 to 2000 head of fat stock; of these 20 per cent, will bo cows, th<* rest three and a half and four year-old steers, with a value of $25 to S3O. The cost of raising such a bullock, includ ing losses and all expenses, coa!d not be more than $lO. The cost ot ‘‘shipping” cattle by rail from Cheyenne to Chicago is $7.50, including freight, feeding, attendance and commission. Arriving at Chicago, they are generally sold in the market at so much per one hundred pounds live weight. A few may be disposed of at stores, but most of them are killed in the great slaugh ter-houses of that city. Rome are : ' I another 000 miles to N« w V there killed, ami a few of i.. do not end their long and torlsome. j until they are landed in Great Britain. The Secret of Good. Manners. 'The secret of good manners is to forget one’s own self altogether. The people of really fine breeding are the onos who never think of themselves, but only of the pleasure they can give to others. No adorn ment of beauty, or learning, or accomplish* ments, goes so far in its power to attract us the one gift of sympathy. In all French history no woman had a stronger fascination for whoever came with in her reach than Madam Ueramier. She was called beautiful; but her portraits prove that her beauty was not to bo com pared with that of many less-charming womon. And even when every atlroctior of person had long passed away, and she was an old, old woman, her sway over the hearts of others was as powerful as ever. What was lier secret? It was this one thing solely—her gen line and unaffected interest in the good and ill fortunes of her friends. Authors canto to her and read ner tlieir books; painters canto to her with their pictures; statesmen with their projects. Kite was sweet, simply and unconsciously, as a rose is sweet. She really cared for the happi ness and success of others, and they felt the genuineness of her sympathy. It sur rounded her with immortal charm. Let any girl try Madam Itecamier’s ex periment. Let her go into society think ing nothing of the aJmiratiou she may win ; hut everything of the happiness she can confer. It matters little whether her face is beautiful, or her toilette costly. Be fore the end of three months she will be a happy girl herself; for the world likes sunshine and sympathy, and tnrns to them us the flowers busk in the sun of June. Wishing and Willing. "Wishing won’t do much for anybody In . >iis world. There are a great number of il ream era and visionaries, people who put on the ‘‘wishing cap,” and desire all sorts of nice things to come to them. They ex pect gold and all nice things to drop into their lap. But they are mistaken. Wish ing won’t do much good for any one. The only way to get anything is not to sigh for it with a wish, but to work for it with n will. That is the way, and the only way The working man knows that. He know. l that wishes won’t manufacture daily bread for him. He goes out to work with a stout heart, and earns a day’s wages with a day’? labor. A scholar does not expect to excel and get the highest prize without intense, foil. You must work with a will if you would get auy thing worth having. But it is ustouishing what an earnest will can do. Poor boys have become rich men. Ignor ant boys hatfe become wise men. Obscure boys who were known only in a village, have come out in the eye of the world, and been known far and wide as distinguished men. They might always have remained in the quiet village, but for this will, which, bore them right out of it into tho wide world atmosphere. I’ll tell you a story of one who made a name for himself, and gained great renown and great possessions by the simple force of his character.. Ho was diligent, and the hand of the diligeut maketh cchj he wai energetic, and energy is like an express train ;it goes ahead. This boy’s ancestor.: were rich and honored, but they lost their inheritance and became poor. When the boy knew this he was sad, and one day as he wandered alone over the broad lauds ci' his forefathers, he resol veil that he would work and struggle with all his might to buy them back again. He didn’t sigh and shed tears, and say, “Oh, how 1 wish that castle were once more mine!” No, he didn’t do that, because he knew that tears of regret would not help him in the least. He bad his pleasant dreams, ns I have told you, but he set himself to work. He brood el over his vision, and it gave strength to his brain, liis will, liis hand. He knew tiiatevcry thing depended on himself, and on himself he relied. He went abroad to the Hast Indies, and he himself tells us that during the long voyage this one thought ->f gaining the ancestral lands possessed him, and fired him with a purpose to ajliicvo renown. Ho lauded in a strange country, without money, without friends. Aud how did he get on? "Wlmt was t>.. j result-? He began life :• \) umbk < ic.\: 1 and rose rapidly in power, and ceased no | in tho ascending stale till he i -. ..m j ernor Geucr.il of all India.

A lady went into a my-goods store and inquired for “bleached cloth.” Several j pieces of sheeting were offered for inspec tion, but tailed to suit. “Perhaps,” said ■ the lady, “if I should tell you what I want I it for you would know belter what to give i me. It is to be used for reposing relies.” i The man threw down another piece, called I the next salesman, who was r married man, j and rapidly vanished into the distance.
