The crowds you have seen during the last week were
not going to a Fire or Fire Sale, but to
McLean Brothers’ Drug Store
where you get the purest and best Ice Cream, Ice Cream
Soda, Soda Water and Lemonade at One-Half Price.
With each drink or dish of ice cream, we give you a tick
et good for another, FREE—making it one-half price. If
we were doing business on Hot Air and Show we could
not make such prices. These prices are good for balance
of this month and gives you an opportunity to test our
goods. We know if you will try our goods once you
will always be our customers. No tickets given or re
ceived on Bulk Ice Cream, but we sell it at 20c Pints and
35c Quarts. We use only Pure Cream, Best Fruit Flav
ors and Dowler's Distilled Water at our fountain. Thank
ing you for your liberal patronage, we are

Fort Lyon Meeting.
A meeting was held at the Commer
cial Club room last Saturday by water
right holders under the Fort Lyon and
was largely attended. The sentiment of
the meeting was unanimous to fight
any attack on any of the present water
rights, and to withhold any support
whatever to movement started by a so
called stockholders meeting in Las An
inas about a month ago. The meeting
at Las Animas was not called or recog
nized by the ollicials of the company
and was only attended by 11,000 shares
out of a total of over 91,000 shares of
capital stock. All members who re
ceived notices from one A. M. Lam
bright claiming to make un assessment
on them to pay for the expenses of the
litigation started at that meeting should
give it the same attention they would
any other bunco or green goods game
that is attempted on them and no more.
The sentiment of the meeting Saturday
was for all water right holders to stand
together and defend the suit as one
