The demand for ranch property is un usually brisk for this season ot the year. Range cattlemen are interested in ex terminating the prairie dogs as well as ranchmen. Melting snow is making the work of the stage horse a little more laborous these days. The weather was favorable during the week and lots of snow disappeared under the warm rays of the sun. I. G. Mitchell was among the arrivals this week, lie will superintend the building of the new Meeker. Now's the time to wage successful war on the prairie dogs. They are coin ing out of their holes and are hungry and will cat whatever is put before them. If the prospectors at Hahn's Peak continue to make strikes like the latest one reported from there, a railroad is assured for that promising mining region. Reports come in from the lower coun try that the loss of cattle will be heavy along the river. On the other hand, stock kept back iu the hills has wintered very well. L ige .Salmon, whose illness was men tioned in these columns two weeks ago. | is still confined to his room under the 1 doctor’s care, but is making satisfactory i progress toward recovery. ' The last of the series of popular “teas,” by the ladies ot St. James church, was given by Mrs. Boyd Wal bridge at her residence, Thursday even ing. and was gastronomlcally, socially and financially a success. An entertainment, consisting of dec lamation and music, will be given for the benefit of the Methodist church, on Friday evening, the ‘27th of this month. A good program of solos, quartettes and declamations is expected. The dance Tuesday evening will be a burlesque on “hard times” and as the ball tossers are laying themselves out to make it a fun-producing affair, all who like a good time should attend. The proceeds will be used for the edification of the public on another occasion. The Mesa ranchmen held a meeting on Saturday last for the purpose of rais ing funds to prosecute a war on the prairie dogs, which are again becoming quite numerous over there. All present j «i...♦ U | a Un nt ouce, so Mr. Otto Metzger was appoint ed to go round among those interested and solicit funds for the work in hand. A Rawlins dispatch to the Denver Republican announces the sale of the Timberlake placer grounds, at Four mile, to a company composed of Chi cago, Dos Moines and Marshalltown, lowa, capitalists. This sale, which has been pending for some time, will turn a good deal of development money loose in the Fourmile region. The property was owned principally in Rawlins. A strike is reported from Ilahn's Peak which is said to run from S3O to S7OO to the ton in gold and silver—the latter predominating. The strike was made in the Great Eastern tunnel, own ed by Messrs. Poulson, Smith and Mc- Intosh. The ore body is said to be thirty feet in thickness and everybody at tho Peak is wild with excitement. This prospective bonanza is located on the south side of the Peak about 800 feet below the summit. The dance given at the court house on Tuesday evening, for the benefit of the sufferers by the recent miue disaster at New Castle, was a great success. Sixty six tickets were sold at $1 each, and the ladies of Meeker furnished the dancers with lunch, from which was raised $23 10, making a total of SSB.IO. This amount was forwarded to C. 11. So rev, of New Castle, chairman of the re lief committee. Messrs. William 11. Clark, Ed Wilber and S. Mootz made very efficient and popular floor man agers. and added much to the evening’s amusements. The committee iu charge desire Tiie Herald to thank the musi cians and all who in any way helped to make the sufferers’ ball the success that it was. # A telegram was sent from Meeker the other day, to President Cleveland, which read: “We have .500 cowpunchers, ready at your call, for a tight with the *cigarettos.’ Reserve the light to fur* uioh nur own horses and grub. Signed. Dwight Edwin Hyland, president, and Harry French, secretary.” That’s the way we do things here iu Rio Blanco county. Meeker has really never experienced anything in the nature of hard times, so the base ball club is going to give what the boys facetiously call “a hard times” ball next Tuesday evening—St. Patrick's day—and it gives promise of being a very enjoyable affair. Frank Burchnm, the Gen wood build er and contractor, came in Wednesday and will probably get the brick contract on the new Meeker hotel. The base ball club will give the sup per at the dance on St. Patrick’s night. Range, riders will note the Lowell brand in this issue. Horses for Sale.

The German army, for example, when moving l in nnall bodies always pur chases supplies on the march as want < ci. The same ie true of the French, Russian, Austrian and other European armies, but at the same time the soi ■ iici.-. usually have iu their knapsacks what is colled uo ‘‘emergency’’ ration, generally sausage or preserved meat ii f some kind The soldiers of the Jap ! .inesi* army in the late war with China carried an emergency ration of rice in u little tin case strapped to the top of their knapsacks. The reports made by the different military departments to which the questions were referred are interesting as bearing upon the value of food prod ucts generally and on the physiologi cal questions involved in the digestive and nutritive processes more particu larly. Theoretically speaking, it would appear that the problem had been solved regarding the amount of food necessary to sustain life and the varieties of sustenance that gave in minimum compass the greatest amount of nourishment. All the observers agree, however, that the old-fashioned ration of bacon and hard-tack in suitable bulk ia the most practical that lias ever been sug gested. The quantity of food neces sary to keep n soldier in good condi tion is fixed at 22 ounces. The laticr amount is increased for obvious rea sons to 2G ounces. When the theories were put to a prac tical test the result was as might have been anticipated. Various concen trated food tablets were employed in Colorado, but more than half the men who were victims to the experiment became candidates for hospital treat ment. The following extract from the report speaks very significantly on some very essential and striking facts: “A company of the Seventh infantry, at Fort Logan, near Denver, was de tailed and furnished with condensed rations, consisting of coffee, soup, - Wari piwi iimron The coffee and soup .were ui small tablet*. wH«*. wsm placed in boiling water, were ready for consumption in two minutes. The bread was in small, flat cakes, the weight and hardness of a brick, but when moistened swelled out like a sponge. The bacon was compressed and only needed to be wanned in a fiy ing-pan. The soldiers started out with ten days’ rations, but the campaign was brought to an abrupt end after four days of 15-mile marches. The food no: only did not satisfy the hunger or give strength, but seemed to irritate the stomach. After the first meal, two of the enlisted men had to be placed under the surgeon’s care. At the end of the second day 30 of the 70 men in the company were ill, and on the fourth j da3* the whole command went into j camp, and couriers were sent to town j for hard-tack and ordinary coffee and | bacon. Some of the soldiers were seri • ously ill with a stomach complaint, and : were confined to the hospital for sev • eral days.” ; All tiiis goes to show that not only very much ia to be learned regarding I laboratory feeding, but that we are also far from the proper appreciation of | nature’s complex requirements in food 1 taking. Thus far the human labora j tory, with its multiple, interdependent, [ and complementary methods, has a J monopoly of its own in fixing the l proper standards for digestion, assim ilation and subsequent growth. There is a natural law pervading the whole that must not be violated by too radical attempts ot modification or improve ment. The stomach must earn its living in Ha own way. as by such purely physio logical effort in bringing each and all of its mechanical, vital and chemical functions into play, it can boat main tain its health, activity and usefulness. No prepared or concentrated food can relieve it of any or all of its activities in that gradual conversion of n legiti mate quantity and quality of food that constitutes a natural and perfect di gestion. In such on aspect a moderately full . stomach is something more than a feel ing. Its work must lie distributee rather than restrictive. It must be healthfully distended with food bulsy ■ enough to occupy spare places; other wise, its most important function is hampered, while for lack of mechani cal stimulus the intestines become stagnated into almost, helpless inactiv ity. Hence it is easy to see how the ex periments failed and the victims paid the penalty of outraged physiological laws. So far, at least, tlitre is not suffi cient reason, because a man becomes a soldier that his stomach should be puckered around a desiccated soup tab let or that It should wrestle alone in some dark corner of an accommodat ing fold with some soggy and glazed • albuminoid.—Medical Record. — The floods of the Tiber in winter carry everything before them.
