Fred Holt formerly proprietor of the Farmington Times, is now a partner of Charley Day in the publication of the Cortez Journal. It ia said tbat Fred was suffering from nervous prostration, brain fag, or some equally serious ailment caused by his arduous duties in Farmington, and secured the services of an able writer, resident of the same village, to "spell" him a bit in his editorial tasks. Fred became acquainted with his editor's daughter, wooed her, and finally asked papa's eonsent. They dickered for some time and finally traded. Fred took the girl and the old geut the print shop. This explains the presence of the former in Cortez. Durango Democrat. The Times regret to chronicle the death of Mrs. George Tinker who pass ed away last Monday morning at her residence, Cedar Hill, after an illness of two weeks. She leaves her husband and five small children to mourn her departure. Her last hours were spent with her loved ones round her couch, and in that prayerful communion so assuring to those left behind of a joy ful meeting in the great hereafter. Mrs. Frank Waller and Miss. Myers of Howardsville, Colo., sisters of Mrs. Tinker arrived last Monday on the stage hoping to be in time to see their sister in her last hours but were too late. B. M. Prewitt returned from Gallup Tuesday. He reports Gallup as boom ing. The citizens there are calculat ing on building a large reservoir in a apot where the formation of the coun try is adapted for that purpose. The A & P. whoie line runs through the loca'i' will move their line to permit of - e reservoir being construed. Mr. Prewitt had a pretty narro es cape on his return across the reserva tion. He was on foot and struck Man uelito r ' rings instead of Togay. He did ttwo days' hard walking almost without water and arrived at Sulphur springs in an exhausted condition. A day or two's rest let him up and en abled him to land home safe and sound.
