A few days ago Miss Coleman appeared on a wheel in the main streets. She wore bloomers of the most pronounced type—red in color, trimmed gorgeously in white. They were the first bloomers seen bere, and the fever spread; and Saturday last ten young ladies appeared in company attired in different colored bloomers. They rode to the kite shaped track, took several spins, and then went to the base ball game. The silver Democrats in Illinois must laugh when they read what Comptroller of the Currency Eckels says about how weak they are. MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY. AUGUST 17, 1895. Nearing a Focus. The following item appeared in Mon day’s Denver News: “Manager Dean, of the White River Valley Railway company, left yesterday for New Castle in company with W. Weston, mining engineer of this city, to make a trip over the proposed line of the railway. Mr. Westou represents a syndicate of London capitalists that has the proposition under consideration, and if he reports favorably the money will bo forthcoming for the construc tion of the road. A cable message was received by Mr. Weston from Loudon yesterday directing him to make the trip and report u)>on the prospects of liie line and the resources of the coun try through which it is projected. Sur veys were recently completed from New Castle to Meeker, a distance of about fifty miles. If tho road 1s built to Meeker it will be carried further at an early day.” On Tuesday evening the gentlemen referred to above, together with W. C. Burke, of La Junta, arrived in Meeker having made the trip from New Castle byway of the surveyed route. The general manager, J. W. Dean, is not a stranger to our people, and he ap peared to be more confident than ever that the building of this road is au as sured fact. Mr. Weston is a practical miner, aud it was an easv matter for him to attend to the work assigned to him. Mr. Burke was the consulting engineer at the time the route was sur veyed : and upon this trio’s report will depend in a measure tho fate of the new railroad. What the party did here can be briefly told: On Wednesday morning they were taken in hand by Mayor Sheridan and other townsmen, and a tour of inspection made. Owing to the limited time at their disposal, hurried trips were made to a few of the coal mines, aud specimens were taken from the breast of each of the openings, and measurements and other data duly made note of. The gentlemen became quite interested in the immense bodies of such good coal right at our feet, aud they did not hesitate to express aston ishment as well as satisfaction in hav ing made a personal examination. The rest of the day was consumed in looking over the agricultural resources of this section, and they were very much pleased with the outlook. After getting such other information necessary to be sent to headquarters, the bnrty left for New Casllav In due course of time their report will be made, and if we don’t hear of grading contracts being let before long then there is something unfathomably wrong. _ _ Grand Junction’s Peach Day Will be celebrated this year, September 4th, on a grander scale than ever before. In addition to the usual interesting fea tures, which include a free peach din ner, speakers of national repute will de liver addresses upon appropriate topics. All Colorado roads have made a spe cial rate of one cent per mile each way, good from August 31st to September Bth. Special excursion trains to accommo date visitors from the east will leave Chicago August 29. The limit on these excursion tickets will be thirty days, and the rate will be one fare or there abouts for the round trip. The Grand Junction people have secured for visit ors stop over privileges at all points west of Montrose and Glen wood Springs. The fruit crop at Grand Junction this year surpasses all previous years. All Colorado should turn out and see our western valleys, which are fast becom ing California’s rivals.

Why not sweep the car pet, shake the door-mat and change the pillow-slips?*’—Salt Lake Tribune. New Road Law. The new road law, passed by at the last session of the legislature, is now in effect. It provides for the division by the county commissioners of the county into districts, and the appointment of a road overseer for each district to be paid ten per cent, of all collections and three dollars a day for services. The commissioners apportion the road fund fo. each district from the county ! t fund. This must not be less than half ] the amount of road'tax in each district. The law leaves it optional with the commissioners to divide the county in as many aud varied districts as will suit. The overseers hold oflice for one year. Petit Jurors.
