urer. subject to the action of the Democratic
County convention.
COMING EVENTS.
Republican county convention at Reeky
Ford, Monday. Septeintier IS.
There is yet hop* for silver leg
islation, Let not the fight be giv
en up until some degree of justice
is secured,
r_
Rocky Ford is surely the Chi
cago of this section, We base
this assertion on its resemblance
to Chicago as a convention city,
Two conventions here in one day,
and another the following week;
in fact nil the county conventions
held this year. Our central pobi
tiou and general attractiveness is
the reason of this discrimination
in favor of Rocky Ford,
Otero is the banner county in
the state in many respects, and
why not add another laurel by giv
ing a majority for equal suffrage?
There is no good reason why wom
en should not vote and help gov
ern the country, but very many of
the best of reasons why this nat
ural right should not be denied
her, Think on this matter and
make up your mind to grant the
best half of our citizens a chance
to help make the laws,
A few days since we took a short
drive with Hon J H Crowley
through the country adjacent to
Rocky Ford on the south-east,
Having seen but little of the coun
try thus far, we were greatly sur
prised at the progress made in the
last five years in horticulture, The
apple orchards seen show a mar
velous growth during the two,
three, four and five years they
1 have been planted, A large area
near town is a perfect fruit and
’ garden district and cannot tut
r forcibly impress a stranger with
the immense capabilities of the
Arkansas Valley for fruit culture
and the growth of nlmost all pro
ducts belonging to the temperate
zone, Later, when enough space
is at our command we shall write
up that portion of the country in
detai 1 , knowing that the facts can
not but add to the wide-spread
fame of Rocky Ford as the center
, of an unsurpassed agricultural
section,
—The public schools opened on Mon
day with an increased attendance.
—The La Junta Gall has suspended
• publication.
—Watermelon shipments, which were
slow for some days, are now proceeding
with the usual vigor.
—See the new ad of Stearns’ barber
shop, where you will get first class work.
—Maxwell Bros’ fair decorations es-
I caped the reportorial notice until too late
for mention last week.
—Send 10 cents in postage stamps for
laws governing the Cherokee Outlet, to
Copp & Luckett, Washington, D. 0. 1
—Three freight cars getting off the
track on the main line in Rocky Ford
delayed all trains on Monday for several
hours.
—The Rocky Foad canning factory is
now in active operation. The supply of
beans, all grown since the hail, is quite
large and the factory will keep a strong
force of bands busy until frost.
—Stockmen report the range in splen
did condition—never better—and that
the cattle are putting on flesh rapidly.
The grass was late starting but stock
has improved wonderfully fast since the
rains, and by October Ist will bo in fine
marketable condition.
—Editor Wilson of La Junta was tak
en in in by a confidence man a few days
since. A forged letter of introduction
was used to get Mr. Wilson to identify
Mr. McAvoy at the bank, and he there
by got a 82G check cashed. No arrests.

ARKANSAS VALLEY FAIR
The Second Exhibition
a Marked Success.
LIST OF THOSE VHO WCN PREMIUMS
The display of agricultural pro
ducts in the alfalfa palace was
both large iu variety and of a high
degree of excellence. The walls
and tables of baled liny made a
novel and most appropriate back
ground for the grains, vegetables
and fruits.
The Arkansas Valley Experi
ment Station, under the manage
ment of F. A. Huntley, made a
splendid display. Surmounting
this exhibit, standing out in bold
relief over a background of grain,
was the nani9 of the station artist
ally worked in green corn stalks.
H. F. Hagen made a most inter
esting exhibit of boney, etc., and
had in operation a honey extract
or. A queen and swarm of bees
were seou in this exhibit.
The ranchmen of the vicinity of
Fowler occupied about one-third
of the palace and their display of
farm and garden products was su
perior. Their corn was particu
larly good. Andy Waddington’s
large exhibit uttracted much at
tention.
Burkhardt of Trinidad made a
fine showing of harness and Bad
dlery.
The department devoted to the
canned goods, preserves and other
toothsome articles of woman’s
manufacture was quite attractive.
The agricultural college at Fort
Collins exhibited excellent speci
mens of students’ work in iron and
wood, nnd also added greatly to
the interest of the stock show by a
number of entries of fine short
horns and sheep.
