Ranchmen are about through putting up their drat cutting of hay. The beef market remains high not withstanding the advent of range stock. John Damn of North £lk Creek, has bought the Young house and lots and will shortly move to town to live. Gates Kersburg has had the Kentucky Liquor Store corner Improved very much in appearanoe by a very artistic job of window and door painting. A large congregation listened to one of the best sermons ever preached in this town, at the St. James church, last Sunday morning by Rev. Mr. Bateman of Rawlins. G. W. Thayer has sold six lots on Market, between Seventh and Night streets to Tom Sbervln and Jerm Beard. These gentlemen will build some time duriog the fall. George 8. Witter reports the horse market higher now than It has been in five years past. George has some good horses left and we hope he and others will not have to give them away any more. The Craig Courier notes the return of the Craig boys who took part in our Fourth of July celebration. Says the Courier: “The boys report the celebra tion as a great success and state that they had a good time.” Ben Morgan of Axial, has bought the Eck lots at the northeast corner of Fifth and Water streets. It is a valuable piece of property, beautifully adorned with fruit and shade trees, and it is rumored that Mr. Morgan will shortly erect a substantial residence on it. Game Warden Kilduff made a thorough search of the Lost park region last week for game violators, but found no indications of the presence of violators in that section. Tom is keep ing a close watch on the movements of certain tourists who recently left the Hotel Colorado, Gleuwood Springs, for the flat-tops. Six prairie schooners, loaded with an assorted lot of men, women and children and household effects, passed through town Thursday afternoon, bound for the San Leuis valley, this state. The party hailed from the vicinity of Green River City, Wyo., and in addition to the rolling stock and teams had nearly three hundred head of loose horses. At the last session of the legislature, Maine made some salutary changes in the laws relating to game protection. The open season for deer was shortened considerably and the hunting of moose and cariboo was confined to the month of November. All guides and owners ef camps are compelled to take out U censes and report any violations of the game laws. The duty imposed by the new tariff eo imported eattie will have a prohibi lory effect as far as Mexico is eoocerned. During the last 24 months in the neigh borbood of 800,080 head of eattie have been imported into this country from Mexico, paying to this government abont 875,008. The duty on Mexican eattie under the ’hew tariff will range from four to six dollars per head, while the old duty sversged one sod one-bmlf dollars per head. J An interesting little episode took place at the meeting of the commission ers one day last week. Mr. McLoughUn wss sloshing around raising or trying to raise everybody who he suspects of vot ing against him lest fell, when be locked horns with Assessor Haves. Tbs latter asked McLoughUn how it happened that on the 29th day of April last he mortgaged 100 head of steers to Clay, Robinson A; Co., and on May Ist, two days latter, returned in his schedule to the assessor only 60 head. McLoughUn repUed that he bad heavy losses during these two days- Asaeesor Hayes called bis attention to one or two more items in which the county got the worst of it, but—Mr. McLoughUn declares nowa days “Bejesus I'm running the county uow;” and there are lots of facts to show that the boast is no empty one. A young man named Judy, while hunting stock on Strawberry last Mon day, discovered an interesting “cache” in a rocky, out-of-the-way^place about a mile distant from the spot where Sam Wear found the bank robbers camp last fall. A lot of provisions, clothing a tent, a pair of nippers, a policeman's billy with a whistle in the end of it, were among the things found. All were roUed up in the tent and in good condi tion. The find was reported to Under Sheriff Williams, who took charge of the articles. At first it was supposed that another bank robbers camp bad been found, but the conclusion was finally reached that the cache was made by the parties who stole the Edwards sheep about two years ago. W. B. Barnes and wife, who were looking over this part of the country last winter for a location, came in from Angora, on the Lower White river where they have located a ranch, after supplies. Mr. Barnes will go quite ex tensively into the fruit business at his new location and will endeavor to supply the White river country with fruit. We don’t see why he cannot make a success of fruit In that section, as the altitude is about the same as ours.—Rifle Reveille. After a pleasant fishing trip to Mar vine Lodge, under the chaperonage of Tom Sbervin and Germ Beard, Mr. T. M. Wilson left on Wednesday morn ing for his place of business at St. Louis. During his brief stay here, Mr. Wilson formed a favorable impression of this valley, and he will be here again with a view to Investing. Mrs. Wilson will re main until after the hot spell is over in the Mississippi metropolis region. In another column will be found the business card of the Kentucky Liquor Store. Mr. Kersburg, the proprietor, has one of the most elegantly appointed bars in the state in addition to carrying a fine and complete stock of goods in cidental to his line. The weather was warm Sunday, Mon day and Tuesday, but a good rain Wednesday forenoon sent the mercury down a few pegs. It also rained Thurs day and yesterday afternoon (lightly) and is quite cool this morning. Mr. J. C. Davis and his party were passengers on the out going stage yes terday morning. An Enjoyable Trip. Under the above heading, the editor of the Rifle Reveille, says, among other things, of his late trip to Meeker: “As there was to be no celebration in Rifle this year, the editor of this paper, who is a patriotic sort of a cuss, and was bound to oelebrate somewhere, after thinking over all the towns in the near vicinity where celebrations were to be held, decided that Meeker would be about the proper place to go to for a good time—no the fact that we saw two wagon loads of beer go over laat week didn’t have anything to do with it, for we don’t drink—and events proved that the selection was a wise one, aa never have we had a more pleasant time nor received better treatment than during our short stay in Meeker. “The writer. In company with Mr. Geo. Hald, left here Saturday evening and although the ride was not a very pleasant one on aooount of U»e recent rains, reached the dinner station abont nine o'clock, and after doing full justice to the splendid supper spread by Mrs. Kellogg, felt that we had not labored in rain in the attempt to reach this will known rmort for n stopping place for the night “After an early breakfast nest morning the drive acmes the range, which this year ia a veritable meadow, , past the herds of fat cattle laxily. feod : ing by the road aide in the cool morning air. was one long to he remembered. . On resching our destination abont noon i Sunday, we found the beautiful little town gaily decorated and fall of vial ton in anticipation of the next day’s festivi ties. * “Monday morning everyone was astir bright and early and the sports were go ing in full blast by 8 o’clock. The first thing on the program was a ball game between Meeker and Axial which was won bv the homo team. The afternoon was fully taken up with horse races, bi cycle races, foot races and in fact a|* most any kind of a race which the in genuity of W. H. Clark, who was master of ceremonies, could suggest. “The day’s festivities wound up with a grand ball in the evening at the splen did dancing hall in the new Oddfellow's building which was an elegant affair and was made specially pleasant for as from the fact that Mr. Duffy, the Ward McAllister from Axial, and Mr. Kelly ’ took us under their protecting wing and made us feel that we were at home and not “among strangers In a strange land.” We drove home Tuesday, ieav lug at about 5 o’clock a. m. and arrived about noon feeling very tired and sleepy but glad that we had gone and convinced ourselves that the Meeker people as en tertainers are second to none.” A Good Move. “Commissioner J. 8. Swan of the State Fish, Forestry and Game department has received a letter from Game and Fish Warden John Sharp of Utah, sug gesting the advisability of forming an intermountain fish and game protective association. It would embrace Colora do, Utah Wyoming and the other states that bound the Rocky Mountain range. “The membership would comprise thq \ game and fish wardens and commission- - ers of these states and representatives of sportsmen’s associations. So far Warden Sharp has communicated his idea to Commissioner Swan, the fish and . game warden of Wyoming and one of the fish and game commissioners of Montana. It is probable that a meeting will be held shortly for the purpose of organizing. “The Utah warden highly commends i the fish, forestry and game protective enactment passed in Colorado ( Eleventh General Assembly' and/ a dozen copies for circulation among the legislators of his own state.—Denver Republican. _ _ Commissioners Proceedings.

NEW YORK. • A Ltfttd of Lombardy. An old Lombard legend tells the story of a chieftain who asked the hsnd of a neighbor's daughter. Upon its being refused him he declared war, killed the chief who had declined the honor of be ing hia father-in-law, and mSrried the girl after all. Not satisfied with this much, he had the skull of his wife's fa ther mounted in gold as a drinking cup, and one day, wblle under the influence of wine, ordered his spouse to appear before tbe assembled guests at his house and drink to bis health out of the horrible bowl. She did so, but ever after was her husband's secret but most deadly enemy. She joined in a con spiracy which eventually resulted in the king her husband’s assassination.
