The drouth of the past month was broken Wednesday, but it did not rain good and bard till Thursday evening. A party of fifteen notables from Crea ton, lowa, registered at the Meeker ho tel Wednesday. They were all hunters. After a very successful summer's practice here, Dr. Kntcham departed Wednesday to resume bis duties as a professor in the Denver Dental college. The fame of the White river country as a sportsman's tie Id is becoming so noted that our hotels are taxed to their utmost capacity to accommodate ar rivals. Hunters, tourists and all others will please note the ad of Messrs, Blain ft Purdy to this issue. These gentlemen understand their business. Call and examine their work. State Fish and Game Commissioner Johnson reports that he has distributed 5,000,000 young fish fry in the streams of the state, flow many has he placed in White river? None. This week’s rains found ranchmen very well prepared for its coming, as the second cutting of alfalfa was mostly in stack. The second crop, by the way, was generally rather slim. Nearly every town in the state now has a “Day,” and why not Meeker? We would therefore suggest “ Hay Day” or “Beef Day” as suitable subjects to por tray the products In which we excel. Rev. Father O’Begley, of Glenwood, held services at St. James church Sun day morning in accordance with Roman Catholic usages. A large congregation was in attendance. The vestry of St. James kindly tendered the use of the church for the occasion. After traveling as far east as dry land would permit, in search of a better country, Frank Morgan is back on the J head of Piceance creek again, having j recently tiougbt the Mlkkelson ranch J and cattle. Mr. Morgan says Rio I Blanco Is good enough country for him, and his many friends are glad to see ! htm permanently located in their midst.] J. F. Steinmetz. forest surpervisor i for this district, was in town Thursday attending to official business. Mr. Steinmetz has a force of nine deputies under him, and a very efficient service has been maintained this season, owing largely to the fact he has got out into the woods and personally looked after the territory under his charge. II is men have been faithful in the discharge of their duties, and mauy fires have been extinguished before doing any damage. This is in happy contrast to the inefficient service of last year when large tracts of valuable timber were de stroyed. Mr. Steinmetz seems to be the man for the place. He understands bis*duties and is enthusiastic in their performance. Judge Ilugus, accompanied by Mr. J. C. Davis, came in Wednesday via the overland route. Both gentlemen took in Game day at Steamboat Springs and are loud in their praise of that town and the good time they had them. They have gone up to Marvine Lodge to rest for a few days, after which they will proceed to Denver to take in the annual Festival. The judge was much struck on the Improvements In Meeker and surrounding country since be wns here last, and says we have the most promis ing future of any town he knows of. W. 11. Miller, one of the pioneers in this valley, and who left for the coast country in *OO, surprised his former friends and acquaintances by dropping in on them last Saturday evening. Mr. Miller made quite a stake in an Oregon mine a few years ago, and lately did very well in a Klondike mercantile ven ture; in fact, he is now in good position to reside on Easy street. lie will shortly returu to California to spend the winter. W. A. Keller, M. L. Sandy, A. Stith and J. D. Moog of Meeker marketed between them nine carloads of cattle off the White river range. They were a good lot and the heavy stuff brought the highest price of the day. The year lings and cows that weighed this after noon brought $4.65 for the former and $8.40 for the latter, freight paid to the river.—Denver Stockman. It is altogether probable that Meeker wHI witness the erection of another church edlfiee in the near future. While here Father O’Begley discussed the matter with prominent members of the Roman Catholic communion with the result that some very liberal contribu tions to the church building fund are promised. A party of Denver hunters, composed of Elmer Jones, Victor Thorne, William Leslie,Charles Stuart and Will Hodges, arrived a few days ago. They are mak ing the Craig ranch their headquarters, and are uuder the chaperonage of Mr. Jones, who is a brother of our popular postmistress. James Mikkelson and wife, of Pice ance, were visitors to the metropolis during the week. Mr. Mikkelson has sold his ranches and stock on the creek, but, after looking uround a little on the outside, will probably buy another place and continue in the stock business. The board of commissioners held a special meetiug this week and consid ered the matter of refunding the county bonds. The board concluded to submit the question to a vote of the people this fall, and took the necessary steps 'to that end. Rev. John underwent an operation in St. Luke’s hospital last week, and will not be with,his flock for two weeks or longer. Latest advices from Denver report Mr. John getting on all right. Troublesome teeth brought J. B. Nimerick down from North Fork last Wednesday, and he came in time to find out that Dr. Ketcham left on the stage two hours before. Auditor of State George W. Temple, accompanied by Mrs. Temple, arrived last Saturday evening and have spent the week at the Temple ranch up the river. Mrs. C. T. Carney departed on Tues day for Leavenworth, Kas., her former home. She will be absent for a month or six weeks. Don't forget that Simp Harp will give you one fare rates over the stage line for the Mountaiu and Plain festival at j Denver. Fall and Winter Hats. | Mrs. C. A. Booth will have a full line of fall and winter bate in Meeker about [ the first of October. DIED. Ward—On Saturday ..September Dili. Mrs. Ward, wife of Mr. Levi Ward, of South Fork. Cause of death, paralysis. Mrs. Ward bad been ill for only a short time, and, although a resident of this valley but a few months, was well thought of by her neighbors ami those who knew her. In addition to a bereaved husband, she leaves a little girl five years of age to mouru her un timely taking off. The body wus interred in Highland cemetery Monday afternoon. Rifle will celebrate a lion and bear hunt next month, the preliminary ar rangements for which were perfected last week. It will be on the order ot the hunt at Dehque last winter, but it will be held at a more preferable time, viz: October 86th, 27th and 28th. Tins brings it inside of the open game sea son, so that one can get a deer or an elk as well as a bear, lion or bob-cat. and the chances for getting the sights'frozen off your rifle will be reduced to the miri uimum.

Jollantgen has received his stock and is uow prepared to meet the wants of all bis old customers. M. 11. Wakeman, Soda Springs, Ida., was on the Denver market the other day with 207 head of cattle. Our old friend James Gray, the polit ical sage of Piceance, favored us with a brief visit Wednesday. Ilenry Wilson, one of Milk creek’s popular cow men, was among Meeker's visitors during the week.

With the exception of choke-cherries, wild fruits yielded well. The first hint of autumn’s approach is here—that indescribable change in- the air, the sky, the wind; and Jack FrfcSt has passed along to prepare the way for his master’s coming. The number of tourists coming in this season bids fair to rival that of any past year. At one time recently over one-half of the states in the union were represented on North Fork alone. Forest Superintendent May and his aou, Tom, who has been visiting the rangers for several months past, left last week for Denver. Supervisor Stein metz, with his family, is camped with Con Streb above Marvine Lodge. Leon Marcott received a warm wel come from bis old friendg, and neigh bors, ail of whom learn with regret that it is his intention to leave again. He is desirous of selling his place and taking up his residence at Cripple Creek. Prognostications for the coming win ter, by one of best authorities, are that it is going to be mild and pleasant. May the prophecy come true, but just the same take the duke's advice—put up all the hay possible. This has been a glorious eggpiner for cattle up here. The raina Jttve kept the ranges fresh and green, «ad as a re sult stock never looked better. The tourists cast many admiring glances at the fine large steers they see along the • road occasionally. The remark of that Missourian was highly complimentary to our state. It was: “Well there's uo place like Colorado for big steers.” From all appearances this fall is go iag to be fully as dangerous for tiro as last. The vegetation owing to the wet summer, is very rank, and if the weather turns off dry and hot (and after so much ruin'll certainly looks as Iho’ it would) it may meau some pretty hard work for the rangers. During the fore part of the week a fire broke out some where on the New Castle range of mouutains, but Ihe supervisor and bis assistants soon had it under control. It originated from a camp fire.

And on the rolls of muster Our names were thirty-seven. There were Just a thousand bayonets, 'And the swords were thirty-suvou. As we took the oath of service With our right bauds raised to heaven.

While standing on the top of-Lookout mountain a few days ngn I was carried back to Hie memories of dear old Bill Nye, for we had stood upon the same spot some years ugo, and a guide told us that we could see seven slates from that point of view, namely. Tennessee, Vir ginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina. Georgia and Alabama. “ Where’s North Carolina?’’ Nve in quired. The man pointed to a place in the horrison to which distance gave a purple hue. “What makes yon think that is North Carolina?” Nye asked. “Oh, we know by the direction and the conformation of the mountains there,” the man replied. “Well, I know that’s not North Car lina,” Nve declared with some vehe mence. “And you know it, too, if you would stop to think. Here is a map of the United States and you can see that North Carolina is pink. Besides, I know it is pink. I live in that state considerably, and I have helped to paint it red, but, of course, I go away some-, times, and it fades a little leaving it pink. No, sir; you can’t stuff me. The place you are pointing at. a color blind man could see is purple.” Nve said those things so seriously that the man was almost dazed. He gave Nye a puzled look ami then went on pointing out other sister states in the late confederacy.- Chicago Times Herald. Special Notice.
