660,660, as compared to $5,509,-
956 ior tbe year previous, an in
crease ot $150,704. This does

''516.180, as compared to $1,572,216
for tbe previous year, a decrease
nf $56,036. 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.

A Kocky Kurd youngster, who
is an inveterate cigarette smoker,
but who knows nothing ol the
pangs of a “bust head," saved a
large number ol coupons Irom the
cigarette enclosures and sent them
to tbe manufacturer. 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.

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.

Oeaton Otoomsr Cana,
The Bloomer girls have came
and they have also went. 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.
