As a rustler for votes Mrs. Craig was , a whole host in herself. ‘•What lovely weather! is a common exclamation heard in Meekertlo-se day .* The ladies are a success when it comes to getting the gentle £ex to the polls. The use of whisky was noticeable for its absence. One good effect traceable to the part the ladies took in the late contest. Next spring will witness a large in flux of range cattle, but stockmen are not going to depend entirely on the range any more: they are all going to rely more or less on winter feeding It was reported around tow: '.ester day that Fay Gorham was married on the dav preceding at Rifle, but we'll not believe the rumor until Fay himself shows up a copy of the marriage certi cate. Ike Baer came in from Lemlville Thursday evening and reports Lead vi lie on the brink of a great boom Mr. liaer says even house iu the Carbonate Camp is occnpied and a repetition of the scenes of T 9 and 'hO are liable to set in any time. Rich gold strikes are the cause of it. The Herald is in recejit of a letter from I. G. Mitchell, dated Durango. “Mitch” says he is dabbling in mines and is holding his own. although not getting wealthy. lie hopes to Ur able to discharge his obligations to all parties iu this section some day. In the mean time he is hustling. Ira G. has our best wishes for his future welfare. Owen Lunney had his brother Tom's remains disinterred on Thursday and taken to DeadviUe for final interment. Owen and his brothers and sister have had a beautiful monument, costing $730, made to place over the last resting place of a devoted brother, a man who was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him in this neighborhood prior to his untimely death. Lawyer Ilays of Aspen, who came over last Friday to take a squint at the political situation prior to the battle, delivered a rattling good address to a small audience at the court house on .Saturday evening. The meeting was gotten up on short notice, so the gather ing was not what it otherwise would have been bad previous notice of the event been given. The year drawing to a close has been a very good one for ranch and cattle men in this valley. 'The acreage of grain has not been larger than that of the preceding year, but the yield has been larger and the prices obtained much better than last year. Immense; crops of hay were raised and will be fed j to cattle during the corning winter, and ail things considered, ’9-1, up to date, has been one of considerable prosperity for 1 the rank and file of the residents of this county. A large concourse of friends and sin cere sympathizers of Mr. and Mrs. Moulton in their late heavy affliction, followed the remains of their little daughter, Katharine, to the grave Sun day forenoon. Rev. Ostenaon held ap propriate services at Bt. James church and in the cemetery. Airs. Castiday got in Saturday evening, and Mrs. Horth Sunday evening. The presence of a mother and sister will do much to con sole Mrs. Moulton on the present sad occasion. Our Indian guests put their horses up at a livery stable and tarried over Satur day night and part of .Sunday with ua. There were three in the party, none of whom, it is supposed, were ever here • before. One was a very old man, who, claimed to be a medicine man and 105 years old. and he looked as though he might be close to a hundred. They were the first delegation of Utes in these parts since the Kendall war, and it is generally supposed that they came in to feel the public pulse, and that if there was no great objection we would see more of them and in larger numbers. They excited the curiosity of the in habitants. especially those of them who came here since ‘ the early days.-' UNOFFICIAL RETURNS Of Rio Blanco County’s vote last Tuesday. Names o: Candidate*?.

After tak ing a few doses I perceived that It was helping my head so I continued with It for some time, when to my surprise and Joy I realized that II was not only helping my head but that My Ear Was Better.
