The far west is fooling the eastern mar- kets this fall by Sending forward so few sheep and lambs. The eastern trade had looked fora big run on account of disas- trous reports concerning over.stocked ranges, all 'of which of course was poppy- cock. The west is no beggar and when the eastern folks Slump off the price on our good lambs we feel that we can stay at home and keep our sheep. They are worth more to us than the few dollars they might bring on the Chicago market and as we have plenty of grass and all the range we ever had we are mixing no war medicine.--Field and Farm. Winter protection is an absolute nec- essity for growing small fruits in all sections north of the Arkansas river in eastern Colorado and it should be prac- tied in every locality where the temper- ature reaches below zero. The best win- tar protection for blackberries, rasp- berri~ and grapes consists in laying them down and covering lightly with dirt and this work is now going on around Denver wherever cane fruits are grown. Such varieties as the Marlboro raspber- ry with hrittle laterals have to be bent down while there is yet sap in the stalks and leaves on the branches. Were thai ~oil is light and salMy considerable dif- ficulty ie experienced in shoveling the dirt onto the recumbent plants to hold down the tips before the side furrows[ ure thrown up by the breaking plow and it requiras the combined patien~ of at leant two good humored men to do the work Sometimes the addition of straw thrown across the tops of the canes as they are laid down will assist in making the light earth more effective in holding the preatrate canes in place.--Field and l~arm. There never was a time during the past thirty years when so few cattle were ~hipped out of Colorado as the present fall and this means a new condition in this country with much labor and ex- pense to carry the stock through the winter. While a great many western cattle have been shipped from Missouri river markets back to the farming sec- tions to be placed on feed most localities will do very little feeding during the doming winter owing to the short dora crop lad the oertai0ty that feed will bring unusually l~ig~ prices. Enough cattle will be fattened in the aggregate to meet all trade requirements but no surplus is probahle and it is certain that the supply of choice beeves will be short. Already such kinds of cattle are showing a marked advancing tendency and sales of beef this week were at the highest range of the Tsar, one sale being made on Chicago of a car load of twenty fancy Herefords that averaged 1,407 pounds at $6.90. Cattle that grade well enough to bring $6.50 are comparatively scarce and go off like hot cakes whenever offered.-- Fled and Farm. Au Exctllent Showing. About 85 cars of sugar beets have been shipped from I~ Junta to the factory at F, ocky Ford so far this season. The cars average about 25 tons and this would make a total shipment of about 875 tons. Beets chipped have averaged as high as 22 per cent sugar, and 16 per cent has been the lowest test. Henry Kruken- meyer h~m had the highest test thus far, and many of the growers are not far be- hind. The factory pays $4 per ton for beets averaging from 12 to 15 per cent and 33 1.3 more for each per cent. above 15. Growers wbo deliver beets averaging '22 per cent receive $6.33 per ton. Grow- era in the territory adjacent to La JuntaI have averaged over $5 per ton up to the i present timo,--La Junta Tribune. --l'agosa Springs Times. ~ommunigated. In those days there wore two political parties, one of these parties was by name democrat and the other was by name populist. Now it appears that these two presumptious parties hungered and thirsted for fame. So they gathered up their best warriors from mountain and plain. Then they did swear by the ash of their ancestors that they would cap- ture the county offices or they would spill their gore, and bleach their bones up?n the crust of the earth. So with this questional resolve, these two parhes girdled ca their armors and sallied forth to give battle to our good old-time republican party. But time had given edge to the spears and swords of tbe republicans and in consequence when the battle was over there were compara- tively few of the democrats and popu- list soldiers left to tell how easy they were slaughtered. Now in the days to come the descen- dants of these two dead parties will say unto their friends "My dad was slain at the battle of Waterloo. Whore wasyou' r~ dad slain?" Gads boys, it was too easy i to boast of. Since writing the above I have met with a few of the survivers who say that if their ammunition had held out the late battle would have surely been theirs. To these poor deluded ones I retorted If the dog had not stopped to catch a mouss he might have dined on venison. t]ut why should we dance over the grave of our friends, the enemy?

During the past fifty years there have been many conventions held in the United States representing vast accumu- lations of wealth and progress. But the first great congress of the ~wentieth cen- tury, the fifth annual convention of the National Live Stock Association, repre- senting the entire industry of the nation, which will assemble in Studebaker's theater, Chicago, Ill. on December 3, will' represent as much enterprise and more money than any gathering of men ever assemSled on the globe. This, the greatest industry of the country,.will hold it~ fi~th annual con- vention on the date al}d place already stated. There will be several bills ap- proved by them which tbe incoming congress will be asked in no uncertain tone to pass. Every delegate, therefore, should attend every session, commenc- ing at 9:30 a. m. and permit no other af- !fairs to interfere with this duty. All i railways have made a round trip rate of one fare t:lus $2.

Por- tions of these extensive canals show them as accurately and nicely paved with cobble stones as the streets of a city. while other portions are cut through sol- id rock. This is amazing when we con- eider that the relics excavated from those extensive ruins reveal no evidence that the aborigmals had any knowledge of the use of explo~ives and all this by a race in our own Unitecl States of whom we have no hittory.--Ex. suffer too.
