Blair will have charge of Tsß Herald until my return. Jambs Lyttlb. Good Advice. The Denver Republican for contained the following: “Dr. D. K. Pearsons, Chicago’s venerable philanthropist, who has given millions of dollars to strug gling young colleges, gave some New Year’s gifts uinmounting to $178,001) in endowments the other day and tn cidently he handed some advice to the young man of this generation. “ ‘Get land,’ said the doctor. *G« out into the northwest corner of Colorado. There are gj>QW topped mountains spread with tall pines, and there are green valleys and swift run ning water. Get land with coal un der it. Get pasture laud where cat tle ean be graced. Get meadow land and tillable land. Buy all you can and bang on to it. Then go to work. That is a district of hustlers and you must hustle with them. Go to stay and do not be disheartened by early liardshlpa. Go where there is not a railroad for sixty miles and you have to enter ou horseback. The railroad will follow soon, and those who fight hard will come out on top.’ “It is probable that the young man of today will look a long time before he will find any better words of ad vice than those which Dr. Pearsons gave so readily to a reporter. There are thousands of acres in Colorado, and particularly In the northwestern part of the state, which can be pro cured for little money. Patience and courage do the rest. The young man who buys land today, under the con ditions outlined by Dr. Pearsons, will be independently wealthy in a few years, as all the undeveloped country from the Missouri to the Cascades is bound to fill up rapidly in the next five or ten years. There is a wonder ful demand for land that can be put under irrigation, and this demand Is certain to grow rather than decrease. Consequently the young man who secures property now' and Improves It, even though It may be the most unpromising looking spot in the heart of a wilderness, will be of independ* ent means long before he has reached middle Ufa. “The young man who intends to start the new year with some good resolve can do no better than echo Dr. Piersons’ advice, *Gefc land’.’’ Dr. Pearsons and the Republican certainly have level heads in regard to the foregoing.' If there is a scope of country In the United States which Is bound to come to the front In the next few years it is right here in Rio Blanco and Routt counties. We ven ture the assertion that in ten years from now these two counties will con tain fifty thousand people and they are capable of supporting them, too. We have the land for the crops and the water to produce them. We have plenty of fuel and the railroads prac tically within our grasp and all we lack Is the people to develope the land and our numerous other resources. We are sure of the people as soon as the railroad can bring them. Before another decade has rolled around this will be one of the most produc tive portions of the state. This country is on tbe boom but there is no danger of overdoing the matter. It can just keep on booming for years to come and still have the resources behind it to support it. Needless to say, Meeker is bound to be the future metropolis of the west ern slope—can’t help but be. Congressman Hogg and wife will leave early next month for Washing ton, where they will be the guests of Congressman Bell, who continues in office until March 4th. Mr. Bell, who has for many years been a warm personal friend of Mr. Hogg, has kindly taken it upon himself to put our new congressman through a course of sprouts and generally make him familiar with legislative ropes, and Judge Hogg has availed himself of the opportunity.—San Miguel Ex aminer. Dislocated Her Shoulder. Mrs. Johanna Soderholm, of Fergus Falls, Minn., fell and dislocated her shoulder. She had a surgeon get it back in place as soon as possible, but it was quite sore and pained her very much. Her son mentioned that he had seen Chamberlain’s Pain Balm advertised for spraines and soreness, and she asked him to buy her a bottle of It, which he did. It quickly re lieved her and enabled her to sleep which she had not done for several days. The son was ho much pleased with the relief it gave his mother that he has since recommended it to many others. For sale by Strehlke Bros., druggists. Stockmen Versus Grey Wolves. Saturday Dec. 90 a meeting of the representative stock growers of Routt county was held in Cr»ig to consider ■cans for the destruction of the gfey wolves. An organisation was affected Cf which K. L. Hodges of the K—D much was chosen president, Bert Hall, secretary and Hy Barnard, treasurer. It was decided that the most suc cessful way of exterminating the wolves is by offering a bounty and a levy of 2c per head was voted on all stock owned in the county. To en force the payment of this levy a resolution was passed to tiie effect that no cattle belonging to u delin quent to this bounty fund would be handled by any of the round-ups. The bounty agreed upon per wnstlOund the scalp must be pre sented for bounty within five days fr» n the date the wolf is killed. vkt this meeting a letter was read asking that, Inasmuch as Rio Blanco is paying a bounty on wolves killed from Axial west, they feel that Routt should contribute something when wolves are killed in that immediate locality. Bteps are being taken to consolidate both counties into one organisation which will greatly facilitate matters. Small-Pox. It became evident to the authori ties here last week that there were one or t>vo mild cases of small-pox in the community. Steps were at once taken to isolate these cases and a strict quarantine was established on those known to have been exposed. Every precaution has been taken to prevent the spread of the disease and the doctors now believe they have it tinder controL The following letter will explain the origin of these cases: Office of STATE BOARD OF HEALTH, Denver, Colorado, December W7,1W1 Dr. Samuel French, Health Officer, Meeker, Colorado. Dear Doctor —We have your re port of small-pox In the person of J. A. Taylor, and your letter of Dee. 24 accompanying same. Please vaccin ate the exposed and keep them in quarantine for fourteen days from the date of last exposure. You will notice by reference to our Sanitary Bulletin that the period of quarantine for small-pox is four weeks from the 3,'vgiiudng of the eruption, and In any ease not less than ten days from the completion of scaling. The Denver Bureau of Health re ports that they have G. F. Watson, President of the Conference of Seventh Day Adventists, ill with small-pox in Denver; that fourteen days prior to his illness he was at Meeker and called on a Miss Mabel Evans, whom he says now has the disease. Please make thorough investigation to dis cover any concealed cases, and take every precaution to stamp out the disease. We have no report of Miss Evans’ case. We sent you yesterday copies of the Public Health Laws and Sanitary Code and blanks. Yours truly, J. N. Hall, M. D. Sec. State Board of Health. For Sale—At a Bargain.

IT is pretty hard to keep well informed on the political new*, the icientific news, the literary news, the educational movements, the (rest business developments, the hundreds of interesting and valuable articles in the hundreds of excellent magazines. About the only way it can be done by the average busy man and woman is to read a magazine like “The Review of Reviews," and,as it is the only magazine of the sort, it is a good thing to send $3.50 for a year's subscription. PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT My,: •• I know that through its columns views hava bssn pre sented to me that 1 could not otherwise have had access to; because all earnest and thoughtful men, no matter how widely their ideas diverge, are given free utterance in hs columns.” EX-PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND says: f •• I consider it a very valuable addition to my library. 1 * The Review of Reviews Co. 1 >3 As tor Place, New York -Off Read The Review of Reviews PRICE, FIVE CENTS.
