Miss Bertha Ellis closed a five months term of school at Alder last Friday. Twenty-seven teachers are employed atpresent in Saguache county. The county superintendent visited the Bonanza schools Friday. The apportionment of the general fund will be made next week. Prof. J. W. Beery has an assistant a part of each day. Miss Anna Ham is doing the work. An experiment is being tried in dis- trict No. 1, where on petition of the pat- runs, the board employed a Spanish speaking teacher to teach the common branches in Spanish. Edward Borrego is doing the work. Sam Forbes has a large school in No. 24. Many pupils are coming in from other districts. This speaks well for Mr. Forbes and for the school. The board re- oently ordered more desks to make room for the increased attendance. Good reports come in from the Cres- tone schools. They have an unusually large attendance and will probably have to employ a third teacher iu the town schools. The present corps of teachers is Miss Lillian Roberts principal, W. E. Tomliu and Miss Alpha Christian. Miss Edith Hall who had boon em- ployed as assistant at Villa Grove has re- signed her position on account of her family moving out of the county. Her mzccessor has not yet been employed. Prof. Hoffman of the Villa Grove schools writes that everything is running very smoothly and that he has a large attendance.

Doings Among Our Neighbors Of Inter. est To Crescent Readers. Monte Vista Journal. The democrats of Creeds are hopeless- ly divided, one gang is lead by T. A. Wheeler, tbe other by Albert L. Moses. Creede Miner. Tug Wilson and Senator Bowen were among the visitors to camp last week and report their mining work at Sky City as progressing favorably. Graphic. D. J.

Patchen, the Rio Grando station agent at Villa Grove, stopped off a day to greet his many Salida friends while enroute to the capital city where he goes to spend a few days vacation. Gunnisou Tribune. Mrs. John McDouough came in from Cochetopa last week. Hiram Van Tassel from the Cochetopa was in town Friday. Miss Edith Welch, who teaches at Iris, was in town Saturday, the guest of friends. From Hooper Press. Fritz Youch and wife arrived home from Pagosa Tuesday and report having had a nice time and feeling much im- proved in health. Sunday and Monday all the able bod- ied men of Liberty turned out to clean the creek ~nd now Liberty has the best water along the range. Several Hooper citizens are becoming very much enthused on 1he beet sugar question and it would not surprise the writer if a mass meeting were not called at an early day and the ranchman called to discuss the matter. Salid~ecord. Thomas Frame and wife came over from Bonanza the last of the week. Mr. Frame returned to continue his min- ing Operations, but Mrs. Frame will re- main in Saiida during the winter. Engineer Win. Shaw was over Satur- day from Crestone to have his engine re- paired at the shops. He says that Cres- tone is a nice little town and that the crew located there for the operation of the new branch line is very well satisfied. They make two trips a day over the en- tire line from Cottonwood to Moffat. The fact that there is sufficient business for the two runs shows for itself that the camp is all right and that there is no reasonable doubt as to the future. Del Norte Prospector. John Lawrence of Ssguache county, was in town Monday renewing old ac- quaintances. Steve Kinney wan in from Saguache county Monday, shaking hands with his old frmnda Dacre Dunn expects to go to Denver Saturday, to be absent a week or ten days on businMs. Mrs. W. K.

Statton is again looming up usa possible candidate for treasurer, against Jim Abram, fusionist. The indications are that there will bo the hardest political fight in Rio Graudo county this fall we have had in many t, eara. Watch and see. The Democrats are wondering when the Pops will hold their convention, and the Pops are wondering when the Demo- crats will hold their convention. Both are endeavoring to get next. The final result will probably be fusion. TRIED AT fiUNNISON. -s In the District Court at Gunnison last week Robert Cain, charged with the murder of Luther Hunt, at Parlin, on Sept. 14th last, was found guilty of mur- der in the fret degree, and was senten- ced to tke penitentiary for life. Cain and Hunt quarreled over Miss Mary Mc- Gowan, the fiance of Cain, and she was an important witness for th'e state, hav- ing witnessed the shooting. It was thought at the time that Cain had been in this vicinity a day or two after the deed was committf~d, and a deputy sher- iff from Gunnison county was here look- ing for him, but he received a dispatch here that Cain had given himself up to the sheriff. James Mahaney, the deputy game warden, who shot and killed W. A. Womack Itt the Mesa or Ieatioliffo lakes, last summer, was also tried and he was found guilty of manslaugher, but the court set aside the verdict of the jury on the ground that the verdict was erron- eous and incomplete in not defining the act of manslaughter as voluntary or in. voluntary, SOME LOCAL EVENTS. Rev. McGan. Appreciated in Pueblo. THE SAfiUACHE BAND. From the church department of the Pueblo Chieftain we clip the following We must all admit that a good band is item regarding the Second street M. E. a desirable organization to have in the church, of that place, Rev. McGann, for- town, one that gives pleasure to the peo- ple and an air of life to the place. It should receive the hearty support of every citizen. The members of the Sa- guache band have devoted much time to practicing during the past year or two and have always shown a willingness to merly of Ssguache, pastor: The congregations of this church are decidedly on the increase and will no doubt grow in numbers and interest un- der the able and wise ministry of Roy.

They are now trying to get up a concert to raise money to troy some new Instruments that are badly needed and it is hoped that each resident of the town Will give them materilil assistance in this undertaking. We also believe that it would be advisa- ble and proper for the town board to erect for their use a stand in the park. BUILDINfi BOOM. Saguache i~ enjoying more of a build- ing boom this fall than we have seen for several years. J. J. Keller is erecting a business house on the east side of 4th itreet. The Spanish speaking Presby- terian congregation are just complating a neat and commodious church building. Mrs. E. Hazard is building a neat frame house opposite the California barn on San Juan avenue. Will Worrier has just completed a nice residence on south Fifth street, and Jan. Thronburg one on east Denver avenue. Birt Clare is build- ing an addition to his residence, on Den- ver avenue, and J. I. Pahner is erecting or of the times and for the times. To hear him is to get something fresh and helpful. The subject of the morning's discourse was: "Submission to the Divine Will," when he spoke in admiration of the late President McKinley, who, in view of all the greatness and glory of his exalted i position as chief executive of the na- tion, could eahnly say, "tie knows best lhe will of the Lord be done." At night he preached on "Anarchy, Is It Indigi- nous to America?" He declared himself the friend of the poor and oppressed and loved to take the hand of the laboring man and plead his cause If need be, was in favor of the fullest liberty and free- dom, but It must be liberty that is based on obedience to the laws of God and the nation and freedom to do only what is right in itself and that does not interfere with the rights and liberty of others. He said that whim in the monarchial coun- tries of the old world there might be some little excuse for the bitterness of the anarchist, there was none in free America and anarchy and all lawlessness should be legally suppressed. S PUS[ GSApr CflrAM 07 TARTAR POWDS, "DIIlL" a dwelling just west of the court house, on Christy avenue. James Fullorton is ~RICL~ building a residence at the north end or Fourth street. Many others are talking of building residences in town either this winter or next spring. There has been a scarcity of houses for rent in Saguacho ~wlll~ &IJ[ for some years past, more apparent in ~.tilll~6atm[ the fall, when outsiders wanted to move into town to get the benefit of our first class, schools and especially since the county high school was opened here, and this fact has kept many from coming to town with their children. We hope some public spirited person will decide to erect several cottages in town before next winter, and we feel sure they would find good tenants at a price that would give them a good intereston their investment. First flame of the Season, 5 to 0, The high school boys played their first game of the season last Saturday at Sa- lida. They were accompanied by a crowd of high school boys and girls, chaperon- ed by Misses Lockett and Williams. The game was called at 2:20. During the first half Salida made a touchdown and failed to kick an easy goal. Saguache made some bad fumbles otherwise the score would have been different. In the second half the Salidas were clearly outplayed. Capt. Slots worked his center plays to perfection. The ball was being steadily forced toward the op- ponents goal when a fumble lost us the ball. The game was well played by both sides. Slots made some fine tackles while Kelly made some excellent end runs for Salida. Salida's strength lay in her end runs while that of Saguache was in herI line plays. The boys have no complaint] to make however and are well pleasedi with the triF. The Salida boys are roy-] al good fellows and we hope to arrange a return game soon. The team are es-i pecially grateful to Prin. McGinnis for ttis interest and management of the at-: fair. Alex Craig was down from Bonanza last week on business connected with his application for pension.
