The total assessed valuation ior the year 1913 is $5, 660,660, as compared to $5,509,- 956 ior tbe year previous, an in crease ot $150,704. This does not necessarily mean that taxes will be h.gher. The county treas urer will have considerable money on band at the close ol the year, tbe rate of taxation will necessat ily be lower and individual taxes in consequence ought to be a great deal less. Exclusive ol railroad property the valuation of property in tbe county ior tbe year 1903 is $4,144,- 480, as compared to $3,937,740 for tbe previous year, an increase of $206,740.

Tbe valuation ol corporate property is bxed by the State of equalization exclusively, and Assessor Adsmond is not re sponsible ior the decrease. Tbe assessment this year is made on a basis of about one half cash value, but owing to the antics of the state board of equalization in ntak ing tbe assessment of corporate property in the state, assessors are compelled to make the assessment on a half cash value basis in order to protect local interests. There has been an increase of 3,005 in the number of acres of ' agricultural land assessed this year over Ust year, and an increase in tbe valuation of $315,040. The number of acres Of grazing land assessed has in creased 7,255, but there has been a decrease in the valuation of $7.- 735.

The young ster wanted to know what he would receive lor them. The manufacturer sent hi.n word that if he would save as many more each year for two years he would send him a coffin or tree transpor tation to the state insane asylum at Pueblo. It seems as though all the world is anxious to assist io reforming the benighted deni zens of that burg, and make ol it a model, moral town. Reeky FerX Fair.

Las Saimaa lame gaajayl The Las Animas team visited La Junta last Sunday and went up against a sure thing defeat at tbe hands of the lo:al aggregation ' to the tune of 16 to 4. The visiting team got four runs in their half of tbe second inning, and after that brief period of score getting noth ing but the character that very much resembles a horse collar was credited to them on the black waste of the score board. “Stepladder” Hill was the star of the home team on this particular occasion, his batting being the feature of the game. He is cred iged with two home runs,one three bagger and a two base hit out of six tunes up. Oo the second home run the ball went over the fence and out into tbe tall timbers in Home Ftace. It may be going yet as Scott Statiord and his gang of lost ball you igsters never sue ceeded in finding the ball. The official score of the game is as follows: LA JUNTA.

The la dies from the intellectual center ol the universe demonstrated the fact that they arc artists at the national game, and know how to play hall. The old stagers who attended and expected to be amused by the an tics of a female baseball player were rather startled when they saw a "bloomer” line the sphere over the home plate with all the speed of a cannon ball. The pi,lx were dressed in bloom ers bright and all they lacked was screen-door hosiery to give them a strictly up-to-dxfe appearance. Maud Wilson, the star pitcher of the aggregation, played shortstop, and was easily the star of the game having assists in two double plays and one triple play to her credit. Maud caught a hot liner that the rude Mitchell handed her and doubled a man out al first in a manner that would have been creditable to almost any old pro fessionsl. She also made the hit of the game, knocking the sperr over tbe canvass- fence that barred the view of the lack o’ coin rub berueck. Some of the Missouri ans hereabouts claim that Maud is ■ pale faced youth. Lucy was something of ?. phe notnenan as a pitcher. She had speed, insboots, drops and out shoots, and had quite a number of atrike-outa to her credit. Carrie Nation and her little hatchet pre aided over the left garden, and al though ahe waa the star coacber of tbe team failed to do any smaab ing at the;home plate. The field iag and throwing of the entire team is eacelleat, bat they are not on to the art of amaabing the ball. Along about tbe eizth inning one of the male chaperones ot tbe bloomers attempted to awipe a bat belonging to tbe home . team and got into a wrangle writh Daniher. Several «f the focal team joined the crown:, aad during the gab feast Becoe beaded tbe chaperone owe ia the neck. Bach lady mem her of tbe Bieomer team tbereapoe | grabbed a bat and slatted to the chaperone's assistance, and for a brief season it looked as though someone would have his nut .crack ed Tbe appearance ol Marshal Melvin on the scene quieted the beligerentsand nodamage resulted. Tbe line-up oj the two teams and score by innings is as follows: 80-fiui liloomer*. Po*iti«Mi. La Juuta. Lucy Hall Pitcher Vanderhill U.
