MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY. DECEMBER 2, 1905.
Starts Up Monday.
The creamery will start operations
Monday, December 4, and all ranch
men who have agreed to furnish
milk should be on hand as early as
possible on that date.
As there are many dry cows now it
will be impossible for all who have
agreed to furnisii milk to deliver as
agreed on, but it is hoped thatall Will
bring as much as they can.
It is the intent of all to keep - the
creamery going. It will not be a
paying institution for the first year,
but ultimately, it is hoped, ade
quate returns on the capital invested
will be realised.
We understand the creamery will
pay 20 cents for butter fat and all pa
trons will receive butter back|for
their own use at 20 cents per poiftid.
The Water Works.
P. P. Ford, the water works con
tractor, caine in Wednesday to close
up business in connection with his
contract.
We understand that Mr. Ford has
agreed with the council, that as soon
as he can get the material to Rifle,
he will commence shipping it in,
which will probably take two months.
He will not commence digging for
the pipe line until March, when he
will have the material of every de
scription on hand, and at which time
it is expected the frost will be out of
the ground and the work will be
pushed to rapid completion.
It is expected that less than three
months time will be needed to install
the plant complete in all details.
School Work.
Misses Leming and Campbell,
teachers of the second, third and
fourth grades of the Meeker school
sent out the following written invita
tion by their pupils:
Pleaso coinn to the Tear hers* and Patrons*
Meeting, Wednesday, November », KN&, at
two o’clock p. ni.
The meeting was held in Miss Lem
ing’s school room and was attended
by a large crowd of which one-fourth
was leading business men of the town,
which was very gratifying to the
teachers.
Miss Leming presided and was an
able and enthusiastic president.
The parents and patrons gave un
divided attention to all that was said
and if they were backward in discus
sion of the given sabjects," , they *??<Y
considerable thinking. Miss Leming
did her best to make the parents talk,
and closed the meeting with an ex
pressed hope—that at the next Par
ents’ and Patrons’ Meeting there,
would be more general discussion as
that was the real object of the meet
ing.
“Great movements rarely make
much stir at the outset.” Much
credit should be given to Misses Lem
ing and Campell, and appreciation
expressed for the advanced idea of
these meeting.

Parents, you are requested and
urged to visit the school; you will

rect the instruction of his child; Hie
