8 JUL 1904: Letter to the Editor:
Loveland, Colo. June 27, 1904
Mr. John S. Wood: Please find enclosed $1.00. It is just about the time of year that I always try to pay for the Register so you will have some Fourth of July money. We are all in good health. I weigh 2 ˝ pounds more than I did when I left Elmo eleven months ago. Business is good with us for new beginners. The most of our driving this time of year is trips up in the mountains with sight seeing and trout fishing parties. The crops are good as there is lots of snow on the high mountains and that makes water to irrigate with. We are always glad to get the Register, for it tells the news from my childhood home. James A. Outhier
29 JUN 1906: Page 1: A letter from J. A. Outher, Lyons, Colo., says he wants to sell his farm and sent an ad which appears elsewhere. He is farming out there, and has a fine prospect. The first cutting of alfalfa is mostly in the shock, and sugar beets look as well as he ever saw them look at this time of year. A crop is from 15 to 20 tons per acre under irrigation and if no bad luck comes, will have a good crop.
29 JUN 1906: Farm For Sale - I have decided to sell my farm of 97 acres, four miles north of Elmo. Has good improvements, all hog tight, plenty of good water, has good title and no incumbrance. Will be in Elmo on or after July 1st. James A. Outhier.
20 JUL 1906: J. A. Outhier went to Maryville last Thursday and thinks of returning to Colorado this week. He reports that he is prospering and speaks highly of the outlook. He saw Mr. Bender and thinks he has a good position before him at Loveland as the bank he is with is having a good run of business.
27 JUL 1906: Page 1: James Outhier did not go home Saturday as reported, but is here yet and will remain a few days. He has contracted to sell his farm and will probably make the papers soon.
