RANCH, STOCK, MINES. Robori P. Bartlett of Colorado Springs has purchased the Harvey ranch and cattle in Routt county for $18,000 and will take possession the first of the year. The mining men of the state all pro- nounce the Wynn gold process a fake. Numerous challenges are being made to the promoters for a public test by a nou- interested committee. Iowa farmers and others who have sold out their eastern holdings, will set- tie on Washington and Yuma county land in Colorado and raise cattle. Seven- ty-five thousand acres are being prepar- ed for them. The experiment of fattening sheep on growing wheat fields which is being tried by Charles Southward of Wichita, Ken. wbo lately purchased 3,000 Mexi- can sheep and lambs in Southern Cole rado, will be generally adopted by far- mere in his neighborhood should the venture prove profitable. The retail grocers of Denver have de elated war on the sugar trust and its product. ~rhey are determined to sup- port a Colorado industry of beet sugar and adopted a resolution that declared their sentiments. By its terms nothing but best sugar is to be bought by Denver grocers, even though the trust cuts the price to 2 cents a pound. The Cleveland-Boston mill made a run of two tons Tuesday on ore from the Cleveland mine, cleaning up $48~ in gold and running out concentrates worth $82 per ton. The mill is still working on Gar- field ore but expects to have their other two tables in place by next Monday, when they will ruu Garfield ore with the day shift and Cleveland ore with the night force. This mill has been examin- ed by a few good mining men during the past week sad they pronounce it first oless.--Crestone Miner. J. H. Halley of Delta county went to the river the other day with a bunch of lambs of his own raising which averaged seventy-four pounds. Mr. Halley used imported bucks on his breeding ewes and this accounts for the superior quality of the offerings, few natives could show a NEWS OF THE WEEK. State And General News Condensed For 0ur Country Readers. Troops now stationed at Fort Logan will be taken to Georgia and certain companies now in the Philippines will be brought to Fort Logan. For $1,000,000 the American Bridge company of Philadelphia has secured a contrrct for the construction of twenty steel bridges along the line of the Ugan- da railroad, in east Africa. One road has made a rate of $1.00 per ton on ore from Cripple Creek to valley smelters, which has precipitated a war between the roads running into the camp, and it is prophesied that a 25 cent rate will yet be made. In a head end collision betweeen pas- senger trains in western Arizona seven trainmen were killed and three passen- gers were injured, heavy vestibuled cars saved the passengers from death. All i the mail carried on both trains was de- stroyed by fire. President. Roosevelt in his forthcoming message to congress will not only rec- ommend the re-enactment of the Chinese exclusion act, but demand that its sufi]- ciency be strengthened. He will also urge the advisability of reclaiming the arid regions of the west. The United States Reduction and Re- fining company is planning to reduce the treatment charges on low grade ores so that thousands of tons already opened up in Cripple Creek mines can now be shipped at a profit. Ore running between $8 and $10 will be profitable. E. C. Highbergor, democratic candi- date for county clerk of Pueblo county who on the face of the returns was de- feated by Willis T. Fairfax by a plurality of 52, has filed suit contesting the elec- tion of his republican opponent and ask- ing for a recount of the vote cast on November 5. The executive committee of the mile- age bureau of the Central Passenger as-i soeiation discussed the pass question and the official announcement is made that )asses will be abolished Jan. 1. The agreement is as follows: "We hereby a~ree that for the year 1902 we will not request or issue annual, term or trip better pelt or general makeup than did National Live Stock Association. was started at Topeka last week. The suit is a culmination of a large number of small actions against the company to compel it to send telegrams for 15 cents, according to the recently passed law. The case is being hard fought and will be watched with interest. The Commercial Pacific Cable com- pany, recently organized in New York to lay a cable from San Francisco to the Philippines, has awarded the contract for the manufacture and laying of the first section, from San Fraueisco to Hon- olulu, to an English company, which guarantees to complete it in ten months. The contract price is nearly 600,000. hguinaldo has written to General Chaffee, the military governor of the Philippines, asking the latter's permis- sion to go before congress and express the desire of the Filipino people. Aguin- aldo further requests to be accompanied by eight friends whom he designates, four of whom are prisoners at Guam while the others are prominent in Ma- nila. Francisco Camba, president of the Cu- ban commission, when asked if it was his opinion that the United States should annex Cuba, said: "As a member of this commissioe, representing all classes and political pa~ties of Cuba, I do not feel myself at liberty to express an individual opinion. But, were you to say that 90 per cent of the business people and prop- erty holders of Cuba favored annexation you would be correct." In Alabama Will Dorsey, a negro, has been sentenced to hang for highway rob- bery. This is, so far as reliable records go, the first case involving the death sen- tence for this offense. The consensus of legal opinion is that the sentence will es- tablish a precedent which will be the means of bringing order into many set- tlemente in the state hitherto given over to lawlessness. In his charge to the jury the judge said that strict measures were necessary to teach the people the value of human life. Involuntary bankruptcy proceedings have been instituted in the federal court against Tamblyn & Tamblyn, live stock commission merchants trading at the Kansas City stock exchange. The peti- tion states that the firm's liabilities are $250,000. The firm's trouble began about a month ago when a large loan was negotiated on a big string of cattle in Colorado. A Texas firm that sold the cattle claimed them on the ground that, they had not been paid for. The banks supporting the firm demanded a greater security. The first section of the Philippines cable to be laid, from San Francisco to Honolulu, will be completed and deliv- ered within asven months. The laying of the strand will begin immediately. The second section, to connect Hawaii with the Philippines, will .be rushed as fast as possible. The entire cable con- necting America with the Philippi,es will be completed and laid within two or three years. The estimated cost of the undertaking will approximate $15,000,000, and is being laid by. the Commercial Ca- ble Company. out bib shipping operations for the ass- son. The first out averaging fifty pounds went to the country to feed at $4.10. The ascend out of 1,600 head, avenging about forty-eight pounds, brought $4, a third out of little thirty-nine pounders made $3.25 and the last cut of thirty.eight pounds went at $2.90.--Field and Farm. Grapes, roses, blackberries and some varieties of raspberries are almost sure to be injured during the winter if loft un- covered and all can be made safe with a few inches of coil. Do not try to bend the buohos to the ground when they are frozen but do the work after the sun has thawed them out. Many of them will bend to the earth much more readily if the dlrt be loosened or perhaps a little taken from the side toward which it is intended to bend them. The depth of the cover is probably of small conae- quence in this dry climate as almost any quantity tbat will protect from the air and sun will do the work. There should be enough earth placed on the recum- bent plants to prevent its blowing away and to aid in this a sprinkling of water can be given once in a while.--Field and Farm. Windmills nowadays are so perfect that it ia really an easy matter to pump water from a storage tank in a draw into reser- voirs at a higher level, whence it may be allowed to flow along through ditches to the crops. A twelve-foot mill in a six- teen-mile wind will deliver a continuous stream of water of two and one-half inch diameter. A very light wind will move it, but of course more slowly. In certain favored localities like the San Luis valley where artesian flows can be struck near the surface it is a better plan to employ these than to depend on windmills. Iu Saguaohe county just at present quite a number of artesian wells are being sunk for irrigation purposes and in some in- stances the iiow is entirely sufficient to irrigate a quarter section of land. In that country the workmen will often dig and complete an artesian well in three or four hours.--Fisld and Farm. There is much speculation at present over the prices that will prevailnext year end the general verdict seems to be that sheep will bring better money than this year. It is expected that the prices from now on will be higher. It is hoped so at least. Dealers who are on the selling side of the fence predict a decided advance in fed sheep after the first of the year and from then up till June. They are figuring on a greatly diminished output of fat stock from both native sections and from the west. All indications ao far ~em to favor the bullish side of the eh~p market neat winter and spring. The ranges of the west witlnot be de- plets~ by this fall's marketings, but the owners on account of the low prices of stock sheep in the markets seem to be anxious to hold every herd that they can run safely during the winter. This will be a bearish factor on the market nextsummer and fall but in the interim the high price of corn and the reluctance with which the feeders are taking on sh~p for the early spring market would indicate that buyers will have to open their pooketbooks pretty wide before the winter/a over,--Field and Farm. Preparations for the coming conven- tion of the National Live Stock Associa- tion and the International Live Stock Exposition at Chicago next month are about completed and it is certain that all records in live stock events are to be I badly shattered by the dual event. It was feared that the big stock show might overshadow the national convention, but that fear has been completely dispelled by the great interest shown in the work of the convention. The land question will come up, and it is likely that some decisive actihn will be taken regarding the public lands. Just what that action will he cannot be foreshadowed at this time, but the stock- men feel that they are big enough to ideal with it, and the attention of con- ~ gross will doubtless be called to the sub- I jeer in some manner. The question of irmgation as it relates to the public land~ of the west will be discusm~d by th,~ airiest men in this coun- try, men who have made almost a life [study of the question. The drouth of the past season and its effects, the cattle situation and the sheep outlook, will all come in for consideration. Chief For- eater l'hmi~oL of tim department of agri- cultnre, will propose a new plan for set- tling the question of gr~zing on the for- est reserves. Chief Botanist Coville, of the dep~rrment, will give pointers about poisonous plants on the ranges. With the exception of the first day, the big conventiou will occupy but half of the day and the other half will be de- voted to the great live stock show at ths stock yards. This will be the greatest gati)eri~g of live stock for exhibition ever before known in the world, and it.is doubtful if such a show will be seen again in years. "It is estimated that the value of the live stock that will be en exhibition will be close to $3,000,000. Upon arrival in Chicago, delegates to the National Convention are urged to go to the headquarters in the Great North- ern hotsl immediately and register their names with the secretary, when they will be provided with badges and coupon beaks entitling them t., all the courtesies being extended by the local committee~ on reception aud arrangements. The special rates made by the railroad companies are in some iu~tances for the National Live Stock Convention and in others for the International Live Stock Exposition, so delegates should inquire for both. The joint agency for the exe- cution of return tickets in all points !within "the jurisdiction of the Western Passenger Association will be located at room 619 Monadnock building, corner of Jackson Boulevard and Dearborn streets Chicago. The oflhce hours will be from from 8 a. re.to 10 p. m. week days, and from 9 a. m. tu 6 p. m. Sunday December 8th. All persons holding round trip tickets must have them executed at this office or they will not be accepted by the conductor. Charles Martin, Secretary. THE HOME GOLD CURE.
