The county commissioners went down
to White River Thursday with a view
to changing the channel of the river
nbove the bridge at that point. It ap
pears that there is danger of the river
breaking through at another place, in
which event another bridge would he

bridge would be on an island.
The Hide Reveille takes us to task for
what it claims was a “roast” of the
parlies who presented the “Sunny
South” here recently. The ltifle editor
is mistaken. We didn’t “roast” the
play or players, hut they ought to have
been “roasted” good and plenty for
making such a miserable showing on
the boards after claiming that there
were professionals in the party. The
Rifle man hail better read our brief
comment on the “Sunny South” and
he will probably discover that there was
neither a “roast” or “bad taste” dis
played iu it.
It is reported that with the opening
of spring Wyoming‘sheepmen intend
to cross 320,000 head of sheep into Routt
county. For the sake of all concerned
we hope tho report is nothing more than
mere idle rumore. The stockmen of
Routt county are better organized at
present than ever before and at the
meeting of the Routt County Live Stock
i*rotecti%*o association which occurred
last Tuesday, it was evident that there
is a strong determination to maintain
the Wyoming-Colorado and Utah-Colo
rado state lines as the boundary be
tween the sheep and cattle ranges.—

The Herald is in receipt of two
communications purporting to give the
l’iceance cieek special deputy game
warden’s side of recent violations of
game laws in that section. As neither
communication was signed they found
their way to the waste basket. A hasty
glance at these communications brings
out two facts, namely, that this myster
ious special deputy warden was probably
not as bad a violator of Uie game laws
as represented to be by the Grand river
parties. Second, that the said Grand
river parties are about tbe worst viola
tors of the game laws we have heard of
)n many a day. j
A number of our r< aders will remem
ber Georgs 11. Wright, who hail a real
estato mid insurance office at White
Ilivr-r City nearly eleven years ago. His
career since leaving this valley, in the
spring of *B3, has I •ecu an eventful one.
and he is at present a--muchly-wanted
man. A number of crimes have been
traced directly to him, among them sev
eral murders. I’tah has been the scene
of ids latest exploits, and recently his
wife (whom lie deserted four or live
years ago) came out from the east to
establish certain crimes against him.
It appears Mr. Wright used a number
of aliases to further his ends, among
them being the following: Janus G.
Week, C. T. Case. Mr. Stevens, James
Brown, George Blair. James Atkin and
M. F. Jennings.

A Birthday Party.
On Thursday eveuing, the Rev. Han
del gave a party to a few of his friends.
The occasion was Mr. Handel’s birth

Jack Rowell thus philosophises in the
Illakly (da ) Observer: “Men are just
like hogs, however distasteful that may
sound to hogs. When a hog gets an
ear of coin, every other hog will trot
along behind close to him and squall
and whine and beg and toady for a bite,
but just let tho front hog get caught
with his head fast in a crack and every
son of a sow will jump on him and tear
him to pieces; just so men. As long as
a man is prosperous and has money lie
can’t keep friends off with a ball bat.
The moment he is unfortunate and his
wealth is gone lie is not only snubbed
by his former alleged frieuds, but they
at once begin to do him all the harm
possible. When a man starts down
grade the world steps aside and greases
the track."

La Grippe Successfully Treated.
“I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of ia grippe this year,” says
Mr. Jas. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexla, Texas. “In the latter
case I used Chamberlain’s Cough
Remedy, and I think with considerable
success, only being in bed a little over
two days against ten davs for the former
attack. The second attack I ain satis
lied would have been equally as bad as
the first but for the use of this remedy
as I had to go to bed in about six houis
after being ‘struck’ with it, while in
the first case I was able to attend to
business about two days before getting
•down.’” For sale by Hay & Jollant
“John,” she said, softly, “I have con
cluded to do without a new hat and send
for mother with the money—it won’t
take much to pay her expenses here.”
“My dear,” ho cried, excitedly, “the
idea of your wearing that old bonnet
another day is too horrible for me to
endure, and I’ll never enter this house
again until you get a new one.”
The wife smiled to herself.—Tit-Bits.

How to Prevent Paeumonia.
You are perhaps aware the pneu
monia always results from a cold or
from an attack ot la grippe. During
the epidemic of la grippe a few years
ago when so many cases resulted in
pneumonia, it was observed that the at
tack was never followed by that disease
when Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy
was used. It counteracts any tendency
of a cold or la grippe to result in that
dangerous disease. It is the best remedy
in the world for bad colds and la grippe.

The comparative durability of dif
ferent flooring materials is set forth in
an article in the Scientific American
based upon careful and accurate in
vestigations. In these tests nil ordinary
iron rubbing wheel was uted, like that
1 employed by stone workers for rubbing
a smooth face or. marble cr sandstone,
and the samples to be tested to blocks of
sandstone, laid face downward cn the
rubber wheel, which revolves at the
rate of 75 revolutions a minute, being
supplied with sharp sand and water.
The blocks to which the flooring were
cemented were of equal weight, so that
the rubbing was effected order nearly'
the same pressure in all cases. Curious-!
Jy enough, tbe material, which resisted j
best this severe trial was India rubber
tiling, which, after an hour’s rubbing,
lost only one-sixty-feurth of an inch of
its thickness; and, next to this. English
encaustic tile gave the best results, los- '
ing only or.e-cigth of an inch in an
hour’s treatment. The artificial stone
known ns “granolithic.” was third, los
ing thrcc-eigths of an inch; while North,
river bluestone lost nine-sixteenths of*
an inch. All the marbles wore away
very rapidly; a piece of marble mosaic
disappeared entirely in 35 minutes,
while solid white Vermont marble lost
three-fourths of an inch an hour.
Most of the wood flooring.** resisted
abrasion better than the marble; thus, I
white pine lost only seven-sixteenths of :
an inch under treatment that removed
nearly twice as much from solid
marble; yellow pine about like white,
asd oak lost more than either of the
pines. . |

A Union Pacific engineer has a fashion
of making unique pocket pieces for his
friends, says the Tacoma Ledger. lie
runs a passenger engine west, ond
when oiling previous to a run he drops
a nickel flvc-ccnt pieee into the brass
oil cup on the cross bend of the piston
rod. His run is 3CO miles. When he
reaches his destination he unserc \vs the !
top of the cil cup and takes the nickel j
out. It has been metamorphosed into
a curious little button with an evenly 1
turned rim, within which, or. the one I
side is the countersunk bond of Liberty, !
divested of her ntars, and on the other
side the V and the wreath. The edge of
the crown is as perfect as if it had- been
pounded on an anvil by an expert allver
The perfection of this is due t*» the
even vibration the coin has been sub
jected to. The motion of the piston is
horixontnl and it travels 43 inches, back
and forth, with every revolution of the
wheels. The interior of the cil cup is
round and the edges of the nickel as it
travels back and forth in tl:c oil strik
ing the sides of the cup. ore turned over
and pounded into perfect roundnc.-s.
•Sometimes a nickel is left in the cup
during the round trip of tiflO miles.
When taken out it is a nickel bullet, a
perfect polished sphere. Who discov
ered this unique method of turning the
edges of a nickel is not known, but
many engineers know of it.
The Crown, One SlUrt, One Pair of
Epaulettes ami Three Feat hem.
An order which has been received in
England from a duslcy monarch in a
British colony, for his regal robes and
crown, indicates that civilization is
making very rapid progress in West
Africa. The kings who were content
to be clothed solely in a top hat and a
pair of anklets, if they have not actual
ly all gone, arc fast disappearing, says
the London Telegraph.
Theenumeration of the articles asked
for will no doubt be of interest as show
ing. the clothing of a king—in West
Africa. They are:
One pair trousers, black superfine
cloth, embossed in rich, heavy siLk.
One shirt, black superfine cloth, em
bossed with gilt, straight lines of gilt
One mantel to design, lined black silk,
embossed all around edge in gilt oak
leaf, with fixtures for epaulettes.
One gilt nine-inch crown.
One pair epaulettes, w*ith gilt tops
and gilt fringe.
One cap to design (star in center).
Three feathers for ditto.
Six yards silk lining.
It is a circumstance worthy of note
that a cap (star in center), with three
feathers, is an indication of royalty in
Africa when the crown (gilt, nine-inch)
is absent, and also that his majesty is
the prond possessor of one shirt and one
pair of trousers.
Ireland’s Beloved Flower IS Poaad
Gronlns Iu Many Parti of

“Few people, comparatively speak
■ ing, are aware that the shamrock, Ire
t, land’s national emblem, grows in many
- parts of the United Sinter..’’ said Mr.
, Michael Ccrnnngh, of Boston, during
a recent visit to Washington, says the
- Post.
“I was out walking in the northwest
*. section of Washington the other ddy,
and saw loads Gf shamrocks in one of
the parks. It is identically the same as
that which flourishes on the soil of
» Erin. A good many people confuse the
■ j shamrock with clover, which it rcsem
j hies considerably, but tbe shamrock
•' can always he told from the other by
, . its small, yellow blossoms, exactly like
a strawberry bloom. This blossom
; puts forth five little yellow leaves.
■ Now the blossom of the clover is either
• red or white, and St is larger and
■ shaped differently.
“The shamrock has three leaves,
which, in most instances, are perfect
• in their heart shape, though not al
ways so, and it grows luxuriantly in
limestone regions. The tradition that
St. Patrick explained the mystery of
the Trinity by the little flower is*the
common explanation of its adoption
as Ireland’s most cherished emblem.”
Will She De Pleased?
An attache of the Chinese legation
the other day in a •photographer's shop
was buying all the photographs of
pretty girls that the proprietor was
at liberty to sell, and he betrayed an
, I especial fondness for young women in
| evening dress. The more generous the
display of polished shoulder the bet
| ter he was pleased. I asked him what
he intended doing with the photo
graphs, says a writer in the Washing
ton Post. “I shall send them to my
. wife in China,” he said. “She has never
been in America. She will be Lappy to
see how the Washington young ladies
look.” And perhaps she will be, but
I have my doubts.
