WALDEN, COLORADO, OCTOBER 7, 1909. STOCK YARDS CO. SHUTS OFF TRAD ERS NOT UNDER BOND OLD THROUGH BILLING FIGHT TAKES TURN UNPLEASANT FOR SPECULATORS. RAILROADS BEHIND IT In Absence of Guarantee, Dealers Must Operate Under Strict Supervision. The trouble between the railroads en tering Denver from the west and the traders at the Union stock yards over the use of through billing on cattle took a new turn Saturday when the Stock Yards company, acting as agents of the railroads, refused to permit the stock speculators to mix the cattle. For a number of years it was custotu ury in this market to handle the billing of cattle sold here upon other other cat tie, so that while the railroads took out the sair ) number of cattle that they brought in on this billing, very often they were not the same cattle. The railroads undertook to stop this practice over a year ago and cause 4 no end of trouble and inconvenience to (he traders on this market, An arrange ment finally was made, however, wtyre by the Stock Yards company gave b£nd to the railroads to protect them in tpe handling of the cattle in the yards, that only the same cattle that camel in went out on the through billing, #To protect themselves the Stock Y«ds company compelled the commiaaon merchants, to give them bond, ftey also tried to have the speculators Aio use the .yards give bond the same as flhre . commission merchants, but a number of the speculators got together and decid ed to make a fight They refused to give the Stock Yards company any bond and as a result the Stock Yards company Saturday declined to permit the speculators to handle their cattle in the yards except under superi sion. Until the Speculators give bond, therefore, their cattle in the yaids will be under lock and key, although subject to’their order for disposition so that the Stock Yards company can keep tally on the movement of these cattle, as they will be held responsible. It is claimed that this same system is worked in all of the other large stock markets and the railroads insist on this supervision in order to protect their in terests. The speculators were considerably wrought up Saturday over the fact that they couldn’t handle their cattle as they desired, but until the through rates are abolished and cattle arrive and depart on local rates they will have to submit or give bond —Denver post.— MUCH FUN WITH STOP WATCH Owner Describes a. Variety of Ways In Which He Has Found It Af fords Kim Diversion. “Having a stop watch,” says the man who had just bought one, “re veals a whole lot of ways of amusing yourself that yqq’d hardly think of before. ‘‘Since I’ve had a watch I’ve been able to while I away a lot of time. Not a pun, either. For instance, walking In the city wherq numbered blocks make calculating easy, I am contin ually holding the watch on my pedes trian efforts. “I figure first fcqw long It takes me to walk a block. Going at top speed so that some folks think I’m mad, I have been able to do S 3 yards, In 29 2-5 seconds, pj about gevt-n miles an houft '‘Then, ©f course, I time all Inter mediate distances up to a mile. I’ve learned pretty well Just what four miles an hour means, and I wnqt to tell you that folks .who speak so glibly about doing tha\ ought to hold a watch oq tbtftf performances to see “The other day I got up races between some hoys Just so I could time their gunning. I find there’s q JO* %»f fun. too, in making Imaginary beta with myself how long it \y\l\ take me to catch up with Sum© one else walking in tftg same direction or how loqg l* wttl he before a car gets to a certain crossing. “Also a stop watch is a grvat thing for timing l.ow lqpg you can hold your breath.” HIGHO ...

GROWS ASPARAGUS IN TUBES Frenchman’s Mannar of Forcing Veg©> table Means Work, But It Pro duces Results. For some time a French agricultu rist, M. Bouyer-Fonteneau, has been trying a new method of cultivating asparagus, which they grow and cook ■o well In France. Starting from the principle that all cultivated vegetables, In order to ob tain ,the best results, ought to be grown under the same conditions that they choose for themselves when grow ing wild, M. Bouyer-Fonteneau does not allow the banking that Is usually done, which he considers harmful. It is easy to understand that a root of asparagus buried a foot or more In the ground will push stalks towards the surface for air and light, without which it would become anaemic, or rot It Is better then, to bury it only about a quarter or a third as deep without banking, and as toon as the head appears to place over It a tube of pottery, two or two and one-half inohes In diameter and about eight inches long, filled with earth. The asparagus pushes up through this tube sheltered from the light, which Is necessary, if It Is to be white. When It comes out at the top it la a simple matter to take away the tube and cut the stalk with the greatest easy and without any risk of hurting the root of the other shoots. M, Bouyer-Fonteneau states that as paragus thus treated comes to matur ity nearly a month in advance of that banked In the Qld way. This is eas ily explained by the fact that the heat of the sun acts more quickly on a root near the surface of the ground than on one buried deeply. Besides, the stalk once Iq the tube grows fast er than iq the ground. FIND RELICS IN RIVER BED. Finely Tempered Weapons Recovered ' from % Channel on the Canadian Border. While workmen were removing rock and debriq from the old channel of the river between the second and third chutes to make way for the big power dam on the American side they unearthed in cute of the pot holes In the rock a remarkable collection of In dian weapons and other articles com prising tomahawks, spearheads, ar rowheads, sturgeQQ fishhooks, etc., all made out of pure copper and hard ened to the consistency of steel. The articles are bright In appear ance and are of superior workman ship, being evidently the work of the prehistoric racq which fashioned the Qjfq*meats and utensils of the early day*. That these people pos sessed the knowledge of tempering copper is evident ffCUM tbq specimens. How they cqat© there Is a mystery, but ths general belief is that a party of Indians while endeavoring to land or make a portage loit control of their canoe and vfQr© swept over the falls, the cqtu* being overturned, causing the contents to go to the bottom of the river or be carried down stream. That these article* were together la proof thqt they must have been tied in & leather sack or some other such receptacle.

FRANK M. PHILLIPS Principal. CAN GET MARR COAL OCTOBER 13th •Our mother is in town and the other day struck us for a buggy ride out to see her friend Mrs. A. K. Marr. While there we inspected the Marr Coal Mine and noted that the water is about all pumped out of the big pit and the dirt is being scraped off the coal still farther back than last year. Mr. Man expects to be ready to fur nish coal to the trade at latest October 13th, unless some unforseen accident occurs. THE PUDDING-HEAD PHILOSOPHER Forget is the railway that has no sta tions on it, The fakirs usually get what the little boy shot at. No man’s credit is so bad that he can not borrow trouble. It is an easy matter to improve on na ture, especially ill-nature, The five-cent theatres thrive because fcheie are so many five-cent people. The city chap who thinks he can make his garden pay should be put in a cage with the man who thinks he under stands women. —Denver Field & Farm. You know the quality of the Marr Bituminous Coal.
