Danger of Colds and Grip.
The greatest danger from cold and
grip is their resulting in pneumonia.
If reasonable care Is used, however,
and Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
taken, all danger will be avoided.
Among tlie tens of thousands who
have used this remedy for these dis
eases we have yet to learn of a single
case having resulted in pneumonia,
which shows conclusively that it is n
certain preventive of that dangerous
disease. It will cure a cold or an at
tack of the grip in less time than any
other treatment. It is pleasant and
safe to take. For sale by Strehlke

Severe Attack of Grip.
Cured by one Bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy.
“When I had an attack of the grip
last winter (the second one) I actu
ally cured myself with one bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,” says
Frank W. Perry, editor of the Enter
prise, Shortsville, N. Y. “This is the
honest, truth. lat times kept from
coughing myself to pieces by taking
a teaspoonful of this remedy, and
when tlie coughing spell would come
on at night I would take a dose and
it seemed that in the briefest interval
the cough would pass and I would go
to sleep perfectly free from cough and
its accompanying pains. To say that
the remedy acted as a most agreeable
surprise is putting it very mildly. I
had no Idea that it would or could
knock the grip, simply because I had
never tried it. for such a purpose, but
it did,and it seemed with the second
attack of coughing the remedy caused
it to not only lie of less duration, but
the pains were far less severe, and I
find not used the contents of one hot- !
tie before Mr. Grip had bid me adieu.” j

Tlie latest feature of land selling In
Routt county is to enter a man’s al
falfa field, take possesalon of the
houses and file on the propertyat the
Glen wood land office.
Thirty-two such cases are involved
in a petition filed in the United
States circuit court this morning by
State Senator Edward T. Taylor of
Glen wood Springs for the Lily Park
Stock Growing association. The
point involved is an erroneous survey,
whether by Uncle Sain or by Routt
county is yet to he determined.
Thirty-two ranches that have been
cultivated and grown rich in product
during tlie last twenty years have
l>een ordered to the lulls, as it were,
bv Preston King, surveyor of Routt
county, and settlers have taken pos
session of the green fields and irriga
tion system on which fortunes have
been spent.
If the court decides the survey of
the country td bo correct, half of the
entire empire of Routt will have to
be resurveyed and half the property
along the new Moffat road as well
will l>e in a complicated mess. If
tlie government’s figures are found
to be wrong, claims heretofore located
will bo open for settlement, no mat
ter how well improved.
The case filed today is against the
following persons who have settled
on the Lily Park Stock Growing as
sociation's lands, it is asserted:
JamesS. Barnes, Martha A. Barnes,
Frank C. Barnes, Raymond Perkins,
Thema Lydiard, Thomas B. Blevins,
Myron Robbins, Joseph B. Moore,
William T. Mack, Reid J. Moore,
William S. Baker, Thomas Trevenen,
Guy F. Higgins, James P. Chapman,
Joseph McJunkin, Homer Walker,
Elijali B. Thompson, Frank Evans,
William G. Mount, George Wheeler,
Henry C. Wheeler, Thomas E. String,
Theodore F. Do wit, George C. Ban
ning, Charles E. Hohan, Henry A.
Shank, Walter Ames, John H. Davis,
the unknown heirs of Carl O. Weg
rich, deceased, and Preston King as
county surveyor of Routt county.
Beginning in 1881 and extending
over a period of two or three years,
settlers went into a fertile valley at
the junction of the Bear and Snake
rivers in Routt county near the Utah
line, and soon laid under cultivation
a valley from one-half to three miles
wide and about ten miles long. Then
came John W. Lowell, former state
auditor, representing a syndicate of
Salt Lake City capitalists, and pur
chased the land. There were thirty
two quarter sections of 100 acres each,
or 5,110 acres all told. This was
thrown into one tract, fenced in and
an irrigation canal run from Bear
river, and for twenty years the ground
has been under seed and improve
ments of various kinds Added.
Preston King as surveyor of Routt
county, bad occasion to set some
corners near the valley last fall and
he discovered that the government
sectional maps, under which all of
the thirty-two ranches were patented
were erroneous. The lines were
three-quarters of a mile too far north
and a quarter of a mile too far east.
This would put the Lily park com
pany’s ranches up in the hills on bar
ren ground. Knowing this, settlers
l»egan to file on the land, until thirty
filings have been made in the Glen
wood Springe land office. The first
named defendant was foreman for
years of the association, and, he has
taken three quarter sections, ono for
himself, one for his wife, and one for
a brother. They, like tlie others,
have gone into the alfalfa fields,
taken possession of the houses and ir
rigation canal, and are using tho land
ion tho authority of their entry re
The association asks the court to
grant an injunction pendente lite,
after which the surveys will betaken
j up. The petitioners hold that they
j entered the land according to govem
-1 rnent surveys and plats, and if these
j were wrong, the government should
j make the matter right by resurvey
ing and awarding the old settlers the
land on which they have spent $250-
000 during the last twenty years.
The Lily Park Stock Growing associ
ation is a Utah concern, most of the
shares being owned by the Wells-
Fargo hank of Salt Lake City.
It is said that the* original survey
was a haphazard proceeding, con
ducted largely in n t»*nt, not a fifth
of the corners being set. and the same
class of work constituted the ba9is of
the alleged lines all over the western
half of Routt county. If this l»e true,
