Any of our readers wishing to pur chase young steers, for spring delivery, can obtain information of interest to them by calling at tiiis oflice. As an evidence of the rapidly growing popularity of the bicycle, Mr. Moulton took orders to Denver last week for sev eral of the latest improved wheels. The weather has been characterized during the past week by beautiful.warm, sunny days and very cold nights—the mercury generally ranging near the zero point. The following West Creek item ap peared in the Denver News a few days ago: “11. 11. Kddv, W. \V. I’atterson and Senator Aldrich of Minnesota are preparing to ship ore from one or their claims near South Flatte.” A1 Ellison has purchased the Clarence Lamb ranch on North Elk creek and moved up there this week with his family. Air. Ellison will improve his new landed acquisition and m due time turn it into a private summer resort. The prospecting fever has broken out anew in the upper White river region. The cause of the present excitement was an assay of £1!) per ton in gold from , some samples recently sent out by Mr. | 11. C. Peterson. Now every “sonof rest” j living within the reserve is “getting a , move on.” - -w ♦ »- On Tuesday, Deputy (iame Warden Clark seized about forty deer hides found in Lire possession of Jimmy John son. Mr. Clark's instructions from the stato authorities are to apprehend all violators of the game laws wherever found and he intends carrying out in structions to the letter. The Rifle Reveille makes a note of the departure of Miss Maude Marker for Denver, where she intends taking up the study of medicine. Miss Marker has many friends in this valley, all of whom will be glad to see her succeed in the profession to which she proposes to devote herself in future. One good effect of the low prices of liorses,which have prevailed for the past few years, is the curtailing effect it has had on the production of low grade stock. Scrub stock cannot be sold at any price, but good grades always find a ready sale at remunerative prices. Good horses will always be in demand and the outlook for such stock is by no means discouraging at the present time. The bachelor home of Mr. Owen Lun nev, on Coal creek, was made the scene of a pleasant gathering last Wednesday evening, when it was uncermoniously invaded by a large party of his neigh bors. among whom were Mr. and Mrs. Goss, Mr. and Mrs. Craig, and Mr. and Mrs. Gable. Although taken completely by surprise, Owen was equal to the oc casion. and welcomed his guests with true gallantry. In commenting on the rivalry between the Rio Grande and Union Paciflc rail roads, to secure the growing trade of Northwestern Colorado, the Denver News remarks: “The surest way to ob tain the traffic of the section named is to build a railroad there, as can be done from numerous points in the Grand val ley betweeu Glen wood and Grand Junc tion. Such a line would be worth many times more dollars to Denver merchants j than any other similar enterprise now I being considered.'' 1 | The bicycle “craze.” as .l has been j called throughout the country during : the past two years, gives promise at this early date, to assume greater propor . tions than ever this year. Every city, : town and hamlet in the laud has now * caught the fever and the popularity of tiie bicycle as a means of locomotion i 3 established. Meeker lias a goodly mini 1 her of earnest wheel men and women as | a consequence of theearp introduction .I of that useful machine and exercise i j promoter, and this season will add many jto the number. No regular organiza | ( tion has ever been effected here among i; devotees of the wheel, but a club is soon 1 j to be formed and no doubt such an • i ’ organization would soon become very popular with cyclists. M. 11. Jackson and C. F. McKenzie jof the Par -Triangle Cattle company, I were passengers on the gut going coach j Wednesday morning. Mr. Jackson, ; whose health has been very poor of late, i goes to Denver for the purpose of under ! going a surgical operation as a mcuus of relief, and may possibly go to England before returning to White River. Mr. McKinzie goes direct to Albion's shores, and rumor has it that tie will be a mem ber of the grand army of benedicts when he again takes up his residence in this sun-blessed clime. Both New Castle papers (of last week) contain the startling intelligence that word had been received there to the ef fect that William Iledy (mention of whose case has been made in these columns) had been convicted of murder in the second degree, and that he com mitted suicide by hanging himself in his cell in the Norton, Kas., jail, the night after the verdict. Poor Iledy! All who knew him here will deplore his sad but tragic fate. Mrs. Wells has bought Ed Wilber’s j residence on-West Main street, and will ; take possession about the Hist of April. ; Mr. Wilber completed a handsome resi dence on his tine ranch (above town) last; fall and will move there as soon as * spring opens up. The Arkansaw orchestra will give a dance on Friday evening, February 28th, at court house hall. The affair will be under the management of the Ilowev and Cure brothers and everybody is in vited. After a pleasant visit of several days duration with friends in the White river metropolis, Mr. and Airs. 11. 11. Leon ard left for their Piceance home Mon day. A Promising Mining Enterprise. The Little Dave Gold Mining com pany, with a capitalization ot $500,000, is one of the latest mining ventures to be put before the public, with W. B. Wiley, president; C. W.

According to the New York Herald's account of the killing of a sheriff by the Zeigler hoys and the offer of a reward i*f j ;sl,obo for their capture, the life of a 1 1 Populist in Servian county, Georgia, is l not an enviable one. ■ A judicious use of the Roentgen light ought to enable a great many people who never before suspected such a thing | to And out that they have a conscience.

How to Treat a Wife. First, get a wife; second, be patient. You may have great trials and perplex ities in your business, but do not there fore, carry to your home a cloudy or con tracted brow. Your wife muy have trials, which, though of less magnitude, may be bard for her to bear. A kind word, a tender look, will do wonders in chasing from her brow ail clouds of gloom. To this we would add, always j keep a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough | Remedy in the house. It is the best and j is sure to be needed sooner or later, i Your wife will then know that you ’ really care for her and wisii to protect j her health.

Fell From Grace. “I never see a feller go to h —l as fast as Bill is,” said a Piceance creek cow boy to a compudre the other day. •How's that ?” • Well, he always would swear; then lie got lyin’; now he's drinkin’ whisky an’ smokin’cigarettes— next thing yon know lie'Jl be ridin’ a bicycle.” CIGARETTES OF GREEN TEA. They Toll Us That They Are Now Smoked la “Society.” The green, tea cigarette has arrived, and promises to cause greater ravages than its predecessor, the slender roil of alleged tobacco, which now poisons the air almost everywhere in Asia, Europe and American. The person who first discovered that green tea would snio’h? is responsible, says the New York Jour nal, for milions of disoidcred nerves, stomachs and heads, but is probably too far gone in adoration of the ener vating habit to feel any remorse. Al ready th© new fad has taken posses sion of England; it will soon storm Ihe walls of Paris, and before we can fortify against it her© wc shall be be sieged. It will penetrate the boudoir o * the Tadics, and even the strait-laced, orthodox public will see uo harm in nn innocent tea cigarette. But none the less a deadly peril lurks within it. New areas for the growth of tea are constantly opened up in the cast, and the product will be pushed with all the energy of merchants determined to make fortunes. We can even forerce the time when to every pound of tea purcha-ed for legitimate consumption as a cheering and noninebriating bever age the subtle grocer will add tLe onrrrry pncKnge of cigarettes, en veloped in parser covere«l witn pretty Chinese or Ceylonese designs, thus uig- Ing the entrance of the d-mon into the household. There is but one comjien sating feature in the whole business, and that is that at its worst the tea cigarette can ncrer furnish an ef fluvium so stifling os that of the Amer ican paper r6ll with which every office boy deliberately exposes his lungs to pi.rtial paralysis daily. The Groat .Jenntngn EtwM. Patriotic citizens of Minnesota who have been led to consider themselves heirs to “the great Jennings estate” of England, are still waiting patiently for the enormous shipment of bullion from the Bunk of England’s vaults, which will soon put our circulation on an im movable gold basis. St. Paul has the craze badly, nearly $150,000 having been collected in that city alone for “costs” in the last few years. The collection of this has been in the l:?nd ; of a regular stock company in Phlk.ilrlphin. and has proved such a good thing that an other company lias been formed In Minneapolis its a competitor.
