Just as the town election is over and people are beginning to feel that they may let their minds rest for a time in peace as far as public matters are concerned anti devote their whole attention to their private affairs, the first of May rolls around and school election “bobs up. serenely.” This year a new secretary is to be elected and it is very proper that the patrons of the school should be considering the matter and be ready the secoifU of May to assert their choice. As a rule not enough interest is taken in a school election but ufter it is over there are those who are ready to kick if the candidate elected by the few “faithful'©Res” does not suit. The following was picked up-on the street and not knowing to whom it is addressed or to whom It belongs, is published ill The Herald so the owner may claim copy: “All, mon ami! Just fancy what the IJtes who so recently lived here (happy in skins, feathers, war paint; and content with wild game) would say if they could come in on an up to-date Meeker society affair! And pioneers like Uncle Jim—who have not had thetruluiugof a pater fain ilia* —complain timt Meeker haf surely started whs sse in ten cion to make ze— w’at you call him, tout le monde?— and out of pity for the poor married men will hurry-up the organization of that Pioneer Society for Men Only, where the members may revel in recollections of those ‘good old days* when folks were few and natural and recognized no social harriers the affluent and the moneyless, the learned and the simple, the good and the profligate joined hands and formed one circle without fear of con tamination. When these old-timers meet they forget brag and swag and heartily laugh over, “Do you remem ber that dance when Mrs. was too full of good cheer to stand alone and how her partner, sweating like a horse, seated her and the boys whis pered—“a highball, Jimmy, not an ice.” ’ ” Ditch Company Incorporates. The Goldfield colony have organised a new ditch company. It is called the Routt County Colonial Ditch and Reservoir company and UcapitAllzed at SIO,OOO. The headquarters of the j company will be at Axial and tin water will be taken out of Moropos j creek. The incorporation papers j were Pled Wednesday, April !!•!■ j .villi liie secretary of slate. Ti.. in-, corporators are: W. H. Bond, J. F. j Wilkes, Orville W. Johnson, John It. j Anderson, Albert G. Bowman, 1 Thomas F. Bpwman and Janies Beck. It is understood that the new com- j pany will build a branch ditch to Milk creek so as to catch the flood waters of that stream also. The con-: tract for the construction of the ditch will be let soon. Best Cough Medicine for Children. When you buy a cough medicine for small children you want one in which you can place implicit confi dence. You want one that not only relieves butcures. You want one that is unquestionably harmless. You want one that is pleasant to take. Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy meets ail of these conditions. There is nothing so good for the coughs and colds incident to childhood. It is al so a sure prevenative and cure for croup, and there is no danger what ever from whooping cough when it is given. It has been used in many ep idemics of that disease with perfect success.

A special in the Denver Post from Pgeblo, date of April 15, says: Mark Love and Elmer Stephenson, indicted by the federal grand the alleged illegal occupancy of pub lift lands, were arrested yesterday afternoon and gave bond for their ap pearance at tile next term of court- TI io accused had for yeans maintained a popular resort hotel at Deep lake, in White river forest reserve.

Mrs. William Kincher, a sister-in law of John Kincher, died on a Colo rado Midland train early Thursday morning, April 14th, as the train was nearing the top of the divide over Hagerman pass. Mrs. Kincher came to Meeker from Guide Rock, Neb., last September in quest of health. Fpr a time she was greatly benefltted by the change but since the first of the year lias been on the decline.

When a short distance out the governmenf road Mrs. Kincher became so ill it was necessary to return to R. O. Reynolds with her. Later in the day aqpther start was made and Rifle was*reached Wednesday evening in time to catch the east-bound Midland train. The Leadville Herald-Demo crat of April loth, contained the fol lowing in regard to Mrs. Kincher’s sad death: Mrs. Helena Kincher died suddenly on a Colorado Midland train a short distance east of Basalt shortly after midnight of Wednesday. The hotly was brought to this city on the train which arrived hero at two o’clock yesterday morning and was taken in charge by Coroner Howell. The death was peculiarly sad and the grief of William Kincher, the husband of the woman, was pitiable. I Mrs. Kincher has l»een visiting a brother of her husband in Meeker for some time. She was afflicted with j Bright’s disease and about a week j ago began to complain that she was not feeling well. Sin* sent word to her husband who was at their home in Guide Rock, Neb., t liar she wanted him to come to Colorado and take her home.

Mr. Kincher at once started west and found his wife suffering from a severe attack of her trouble. Wednesday Mr. and Mrs. Kincher hoarded the Colorado Midland train at Rifle and started back to Guide Rock. Shortly after passing through Basalt, Mrs. Kincher complained that she was very ill. There was no phy sician on the train, hut her husband made her as comfortable as he could with the assistance of the trainmen. Just as the train was climbing the steep grade toward tho top of the range west of this city the final sum mons came and Mrs. Kincher passed away. Mr. Kincher was prostrated by the shock and grief.
