SAGUACHE CRESCENT. VOL. XXI. NO. 41. COUNTY NEWS NOTES. I Furnished By Our Correspondents And Clipped From Exchanges. A good deal of new wheat is being hauled to market in the lower end of the valley and sells at 85 cents a hun- dred. Oats are worth $1.25. There are now no families remaining on the Upper Saguache above the Hod- ding ranch, all have moved into town to get the benefit of our schools. But there are several men up there about a quar- ter of the time performing the pleasant task of keeping bachelors' hall, and the balance of the time they have business in town. .A Harry Little and Fred Schroeder re- turned Iast week from Animus Forks, in the Silverton country, where they have been nearly all summer working some good mining claims owned by them and from which they expect to realize a small fortune in the near future. They will probably spend the wmter in this vicin- ity prospecting. / We learn that A. M. Coolbroth and family are now running the store, post- office and general stoppmg place at Lone Cedar Station near the La Garita cross- ing on the Del Norte road. The fact that one can get a good meal or bed and feed and shelter for a team at this place will no doubt be appreciated by many l who travel the road between Ssguaohe and Del NorSe. From Ho~pper Press. Liberty Cor.--The school house will be finished next week aud then Liberty will have school with John Norviel as teacher Frank HiDer and Ass Kelley brought up two four horse loads of supplies to the Blanca Mutual Mining and Milling company on Sand creek Friday. Salida Record. Miss Nettle Tomlin went to Crestone Monday to begin the fall term of school. Engineer George Fitzsimmone of the Alamosa passenger run, is ill with ty. phoid fever. Saguaehe sent over a delegation of 30 a large percentage of the number being girls, a good looking and enthusiastic crowd that yelled for their players and accepted defeat as gracefully as our boys accepted victory. The delegation was headed by Prof. Morgan of the school. Crest, one Miner. '['he school house has been divided in three rooms and now three teachers are employed. The attendance is on the in- crease. County Superintendent of Schools Palmer was a Crestone visitor Wednes- day, combining business with polities. A petition was forwarded to Washing- ton'Monday, signed by every citizen in the district, protesting against making a timber reservation of three townships of mineral lm=d adjoining Crestone. It would be an injustice and an outrage on every citizen, and the secretary (If the interior should ~t grant the'request. It is only desired by a few ranchers and would work a hardship on hundreds of miners. Center Dis .l~tch. Rol~t. Buckley just returned from his first tour of political speeches an& land. ed in town this week. Z:: .... Miss Zolla Collier who is teaching the La Garita sohofd in the hills has about twenty scholars, all Mexican children. She is well satisfied with her school. A number of Uncle John Fullenweic~- er's young cattle strayed last week and they could not be found till there was a bounty of $2 a head offered then the castle were quickly brought home. Un- cle John has I00 young cattle in fine shape for the market. The La Garita school, with Mr. Morri- non as teacher and 27 pupils enrolled, started out with fine prospects. The pu- pils are pleased with their teacher aud their teacher interested in the school.

K. Reed, Frank Harris and Ed Cavinnias, are believed to be hiding in the mountains near Sa. guaohe. Harris a few days ago appeared at the Hathawaymine on the Cochetopa, about 16 miles southeast of Gunnison, and said he was an officer from the l~eni- tentiary looking for the escaped convicts. He gave descriptions of the oonvict~ and remained over night at the mine. His identity was not discovered and he pursued his journey up the valley and was seen by several farmers. A party of hunters who. were camped in the mountains near Cochetopa receiv- ed a visit from him. Probably the other two criminals are with him but keep back and let him do the scouting. Off]- cers from the city are on their track.- Denver Republican. SAGUACHE, COLORADO, THURSDAY, ADJ01NINO COUNTIES. Doings Among Our Neighbors Of Inter- est To Crescent Readers.

Last spring F. W. Swanson put sugar beet seed for ~ acre out to about 20 farmers near Alamosa. This week he is gathering a car load of the choicest beets and will ship them to Sugar City for a trial test. Special to Denver Post. Alamosa, Colo., Oct. 5.--Tsing Toys, a notorious character of Alamosa, died here last night. Tsing Toys, better known as "China Pete," has been a resi- dent of Alamosa for the past twenty years and was known all over Colorado. Moses Herald.

Griggs and family, Leonard Stephenson and "Ranch and Range" Groves were Hooperites in attendance. Monte Vista Journal. Clarence Winchell threshed his wheat last week. He had 120 acres and it aver- aged 35 bushels to the acre and weighed out 60 pounds to the bushel. If there is a better yield than this in the great wheat belt north of the river we shall be glad to report it. Mr. Wmchell has be- gun to market his wheat. Del NorSe Prospector. Mahboub & Allen, the stem keepers of La Garita, expect soon to move their stock to De1 NorSe. E. T.

Montrose Entervrise Edgar Beard returned from Norwood on Monday, having purchased the plant of the Norwood Leader, of Rural Rubs with which he will start a newspaper at Fruits, called the Frmta Independent. Elmer Redmond and wife of Salida were in town this week. Mr. Redmond is a returned soldier wLo was in the Philippines and is now selling goods on the road. He got shot in the head in the war and gets a $14 pension therefor, though but a young man yet. Hooper P ross. Agent Loehwing sold 25 carnival tick- eta, whmh means that for railroad fare alone the country is $250 poorer that it would have otherwise been. J. N. Sanders drove over from Center and "chined" his Hooper friends Sat- urd~.,"Ne.w~an ie right among home folks at Center and thinks he will like his position with W. H. Brashear very much, when he overcomes the embar- "~aasment of having the ladies call for articles of which he knew nothing. Soldier's Home in Need st Support. The affairs of the Soldiers and Sail- ors home at:Monte Vista are in a de- plorable condition owing to the lack of state funds for its support. General Linus E. Sherman returned to the city last night after attending a meeting of the commissioners of the home in Den- ver and said that unless some arrange- ments are made immediately by state offi0ials to provide for the needs of the institution it will be closed and the 170 odd inmates will be homeless. Governor Orman will hold a conference today with the members of the commission to talk over the affairs. The last legislature made an appro- priation of $40,000 to the institution, but as the home is in what is called the Y, "third class of state institutions it will receive no money until institutions of the first and seevnd classes are provided for. Since last February the home has been without funds. According to law all supplies for the home must be purchas- ed by contract. For supplies since Feb- ruary the institution is in debt $11.773 and the contractors refuse to furnish further supplies without payment Tbe railroads refuse to carry auppiies to the institution unless the freight is paid, The commissioners of the home are H. W. Smith of Monte Vista, president; General Liana E. Sherman, of Culorado Springs; R. J. McNutt of Silverton and General George West of Gohlev. The)' met in Denver yesterday and will hold a conference with the governor today. They say tbe home will haveto be closed unless something is done to provide fuuds for it. There are now 172 old sol diets and sailors in institutinn.--Colora- do Sprmga Gazettee. OCTOBER r THECOUNTY SCHOOLS BY SUPERINTENDENT The superintendent visited the Cres- tone schools last week. It is really a ~ pleasure to visit schools under such effi- cient management. At Cottonwood Miss Alpha Christian has an attendance of about 15 with all grades represented. Miss Christian is putting plenty of en- thusiasm into her work In the Crestone schools Miss Lillian Roberts, W. E. Tomlin and Miss Nettle Tomlin have charge. Miss Roberts has the higher grades. One notable feature in her room is the amount of time de- voted to the study of literature and com- position. Her eighth grade graduates will not show any weakness in grammar. W. E. Tomlin has charge of the inter-: mediate department~ Everything is go- mg very smoothly in that room. They are somewhat crowded and short on blackboard space but all are doing very good work. Miss Tomlin is a splendid primary teacher. The pupils are pro- greasing rapidly under her guidance. The Moffat school house has boon re- paired and painted and presents a epic and span appearance. A. B. Gregory of Crestone did the work. Miss Carrxe Breese returned last week from Kansas and took up her work in the Moffat schools Monday. Miss Estella Mundell has given up her school in Custer county to take up the work as assistant in the Villa Grove school. Edward Borrego has an enrollment of 15 in No. 1. What a blessing county uniformity t,f text books would be. Something lookin~ towards ~hat end will be done soon. Mrs. Grenfell says that the indispensi- ble things in a school room are plenty of blackboards, a good reading chart, a school encyclopedia, a set of maps and Webster's International dictionary. There seems to be a reaction against the vertical system of pemanship. It seems we are in danger of going to the other extreme. Why not let the inclina- tion of the pupil determine what system he should use? Miss Georgia Bell began school in No. 18 last Monday week.

The school board will make an effort to put the seats in before next Monday. A literary society in theschool has been orgauized and on every Friday afternoon after recess, there will be lit- erary exercises.
