up. _____________
Work on tbe coal propositions In
the Flat Top country will begin about
the Ist of September and will be
pushed with the utmost vigor. There
are several very fine veins which will
be worked and the companies are sat
isfied that an almost inexhaustible
supply can be depended upon. For
some time past C. E. Allen, of Wal
senburg, bat formerly of Boulder, has
been in the Flat Top oountry drilling
on various propositions and the re
sults have been more than satisfac
tory to his employers, one of which
is the Rugby Coal and Land com
pany, which is getting ready to be
gin operations as soon as men and
material can be secured.—Steamboat
Sentinel.
For all kinds of fruit and shade

Water spouts in the Piceance and
Thurman preek sections last Friday
did much damage to cut and standing
bay. So far as we have heard, the
Hayes Brothers and Joe Neal on
Thurman creek, and Robert Relgan,
James Burks and Fred Burke on
lower Pioeanoe are heavy losers on
hay and damage to winter feed along
the creek bottoms
Tbe price of hay is soaring. In Rio
Blanco oounty alfalfa Is selling for
$&00 and timothy for siaoo per ton in
the field. Hay in tbe Hayden valley
is somewhat short but it is not likely
that it will command an exhorbttant
figure this winter, as nearly every
large cattle raiser is preparing to
meet the contingency by turning off
every bead of stock possible, and it
is freely predicted that one of the
largest exodus of cattle will take
place this fall tn the history of the
county* Cattlemen who have to buy
simply can’t feed with SIO.OO hay,
and on acoount of the shortage will
not take tbe ehanoe of being com
pelled to pay that price.—Hayden
Republican.
