MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, MARCH 31. 1894. White River Potatoes. Since the first settlers on White river began agricultural pursuits it has been known that the valley was more than favorably adapted to potato raising, and each succeeding year has but added to the knowledge gleaned at the first harvesting, until now Uie fame of the valley in this line has gone beyond its borders. Of course nobody has gone into the tuber business beyond supply ing the local demand, which is limited, but it has been considered advisable to let people on the outside know some thing of our possibilities in the |>otato as well as other lines of industry, and acting on this principle, A. C. Moulton, at the suggestion of a few of our wide awake citizens, filled a number of sacks with the different varieties raised here and sent them to ex-Governor Evans of Denver, some time ago, with the request that he put them in channels where their qualities would he thoroughly j tested. Mr. Evans, as most of our n«id-1 ors are aware, is the man who promoted I and built the Denver & South Dirk and j i the Denver A Fort Worth railroads, j and is now at the head of the company ; that has the Denver and Salt Lake ' Short Line project under way, and as j such he is a man whose ear we wish to reach. ! Last week Mr. Moulton received an autograph letter from Mr. Evans, ac ! know!edging receipt of the potatoes, i and after thanking the former for i bringing one of the fruits of our soil to i liis notice in such a convincing wav, goes on to say. “And as I take a deen j interest in the White River valley as the country through which our Denver, Salt Lake & San Francisco railroad is to run, anything that shows the richness of the country on its route is especially interesting to me.” From the above sentence it is safe to infer that Governor Evans and his company will not overlook Meeker when they come to build the Short line. It is rumored that Judge Rucker has ordered the county seat of Routt to be removed from Halm’s Peak to Hayden. The report lacks confirmation from any of the Steamboat or Craig papers, and as no hearing of the controversy has yet been had it looks as if one of Glen wood’s editors is getting very visionary of late. However, the county seat of the largest county in the state should lx? put at some accessible place. The Jewel of His Office. The night he took thn “third" the senior warden at the proper time, gave him the “jewel.” Then the worshipful master, with steady tread and solemn face, came down from his seat in the east, and approaching the young can didate, said : “Mv brother, what is the jewel of your office?” The young man blushed, and in a hes itating manner Htamuiered out: “The typewriter.” The face of the worshipful master relaxed into a smile, and he said : “Well, that is not exactly the answer I expected, but as you have alluded to typewriters, let mo ask you which one you prefer?” There was no hesitation on the part of the candidate this time. With a happy look he answered eagerly: “Oh, the blonde.” Subscriptions taken for ativ news paper or magazine published. all Saltmarsh.

There was never a time In the history of our country when the demand for in ventions and improvements in the arts and sciences generally was ho great as now. The conveniences of mankind in the factory and work-shop, the house hold, on the farm, and in oflicial life, require continual accessions to the ap purtenances and implements of each in order to save labor, time ami expense. The political change in the administra tion of government does not affect the progress of the American inventor, who i being on the alert and ready to perceive the existing deficiencies, does not per mit the affairs of government to deter him from quickly conceiving the rem edy to overcome existing discrepancies, j Too great care can not he exercised in choosing a competent and skillful attcr ! ney to prepare and prosecute an nppli | cation for patent. Valuable interests j have been lost and destroyed in iunum- J erable instances by the employment of ; incompetent counsel, and especially is ■ this advice applicable to those who adopt the “No patent, no pay’'system. Inventors who entrust their business to i this class of attorneys do so at immi- I uent risk, as the breadth and strength of the patent is never considered in | view of the quick endeavor to get an al- I lowance and obtain the fee then due.
