L. R. Fenlason A REFORMED JEW. Bit of Personal History of Interest to Rocky Ford Methodists. D. W. Barkley has received a pri vatc letter from E. j. Wilcox of Den ver, from which wc arc permitted to make the followinii extracts relative to the new pastor of the M. E. church: A When I was pastor of wlc Fifth Avenue Church in Denver I noticed a voung Jewish boy in the congrega tion one day in 1894. He continued v.VI-Ui Vl. Biia ••••» pressed with the thought that he should become a Christian. The Methodist altar and the old-time con- version were popular then and my young Jewish friend among others gave his life to God and became a devoted Christian. His name was Potashinsky and his father was a Jewish Rabbi. The Rabbi had always been harsh with his children and had driven this boy from home when he was a mere child. He was always a good boy and made his way in the world by hard work. Now that he became a Christian his father was even more bitter and refused to speak to him or admit him to the home. After beginning the Christian life he seemed to hunger for an educa tion. Of course it was a struggle but lie was good stuff from the start and not long after this wc find him ad mitted to the ministry and in the Denver University. He had a tre mendous capacity for hard work. While pastor of a church in Denver EXTENT OF PEANUT INDUSTRY.

Many n farmer has grown rich on the humble peanut, the annual product being worth $10,000,000. Some persons try to belittle tho goober. A lawyer, ex amining a witness In an Important case, one whose testimony was con clusive, undertook to redlcule him. "You are a business man, I believe?" "Yes.” "What Is your business?” "1 deal In peanuts." The lawyer smiled knowingly at the Jury. "A peanut ven dor, eh? How many pints did you sell last month?" 1 hardly Rtiow. A mil lion, possibly." "What! A million?" "I handle about half a million bushels a year. I am a wholoßalo dealer." The lawyer sat down with the laugh turned on him. Rocky Ford Enterprise. he was stdl very young but preached • two sermons every Sunday; built a 1 church and remained at the head of bis cla%s in the University. He grad uated with honors while prosecuting the arduous work of a pastor. His career since has been eminently suc cessful. He was sent to Pueblo when tho church was greatly depressed. lie soon gained the confidence of the people to such an extent that he was able to build a fine church and parsonage and. later, an institutional | church with its night school and. many other helpful features. He was . ~Jv.tr.it-'Wc a great blessing to the people. In the business affairs of the church he was always successful. His Jewish instincts in business remain but arc always used for the good of his church. You will find him a good man with an active mind and a warm heart and always planning something for the betterment of the town in which he lives. When he became a Christian and united with the church Mrs. Wil cox had a class of girls among whom was Lena Shultis who after ward became Mrs. I.ouis Potashinsky, a woman well fitted in mind and heart with grace and gift to assist her bus band in the Lord's work. I trust the church at Rocky Ford will receive them loyally and when you arc at the parsonage to sec the minister and his wife do not forget the voting Rahhi in the family named Edward Wilcox Potashinsky.

OCTOBER 4, 1907- BIG PACKING PLANT COMING The Raw Material for Supplying the Con cern is Pro duced Here ANOTHER THOUSAND OF WORKMEN WUI Draw Their Living from “Down Along the Arkansaw" The Arkansas Valley Is gomj to have the big western packing plant that is pro jected by the Schwarzchild St Sulzberger Co. Pueblo is to be the site and the whole Valley is to profit by the proximity of this enlarged market for our meat growers and our truck gardeners. The plant will employ a thousand workmen. A site for it near the stock yards of the Missouri Pacific in Pueblo is about determined up on, and the representatives of the big concern are now making a tour of inves tigation over the stock feeding territory that is expected to be tributary to the packing house. On Tuesday morning last Mr. Cuzoy, traffic department manager of the S. &S. ' concern arrived in Rocky Ford and under the chapronage of our Col. Lockhart he covered a vast amount of territory before leaving at 1:48 p. m. for points farther east in the Valley. The two gentlemen visited the sugar factory and got figures on beet acreage from Manager Wietxer. , They visited the Lockhart feeding yards | hore, and those at Sugar City and took I in a wide stretch of crop bearing country cattle, sheep and hog growers of this vi cinity. and the exports made by the rail roads, were positively amazing to Mr. Cuzey. and helped greatly to strengthen the conviction that a large packing house could find its raw material in this southern part of Colorado and adjacent country. Mr. Sulzberger himself wont Into the San Luts Valley Tuesday, traveling in his 110 h. p. auto with which ho has boon touring tho country for the purpose of iuvsstiga tion. These representatives of the con cern were given a dinner in Pueblo Mon day night at the Grand hotel whore thoir proposition was discussed by Pueblo busi ness men. Col. Lockhart was one of tho dinners, and one of the speakors. and the Enterprise has it on good authority that the Colonel locked the doors of the ban quot hall so that no ono could escape and thon gave his auditors a recital of that original poetical panegyric of his entitled: 'Down Along the Arkansaw." To it ho pul some late addenda applicable to the S. St S. people, which literally brought down tho house. But tho Col. is not ono of those sublimated souls whose energy exhausts itself in sentimental smoke. He had in tho Pueblo yards at tho time tho banqust was on twenty-four car loads of cattle destined for his Sugar City feeding yards, and Mr. Sulzberger and his assist ants inisted on visiting the train. On ex amination they prononunccd thorn a fine I lot of packing plant material such as . thsy will need much of in the Pueblo packing house. “The Yankee Regent." Mutcial comedy will again be the at traction at the Grand opera house when "The Yankee Regent,” Ben. M. Jeromo'e latest offering will be seen Wednesday, October 9th. 'The Yankee Regent," contrary to tho rule of so-called light opera, is said to disclose a consistent plot, ingeniously worked out and furnishing the comedian. Mr. Toby Lyons, with perhaps the best vehicle in his successful career. The plot of the tuneful conceit opens in an obscure German principality where the death of the aged ruler makes imperative the se lecting of his successor, and a peripatetic Yankee, an ex-politician and erstwhile poet who claims a kinship, thirty-two de grees removed, from the departed Regent, ascends the throne to incidentally uncork a world of complicated situations, dealing with the struggling "Regent's" attempts to dodge an undesirable sweetheart of hie youth, to prevent the marriage of the Princess, which terminates his reign, and hie eubeequent capturing of an American heiress, ends the piece with a decidedly unique innovation disclosing a burlesque base ball game with full company imper sonating the Chicago Cubs and White Sox. A magnificent production and a cast of well knownlprincipals with a beauty chor us of half a hundred is assursd. "The Yankee Regent" is musically a companion show to the "Isle of Spice" and "The Royal Chef." Prices„26c—s 1.60 J PLANNING A CITY HOSPITAL Rocky Ford Physicians Organizing a Hospital Association.
