Why go to Florida on Southern California when we have a more sa lubrious climate at home? It is said a new saw-mill will soon be erected at Buford, probably on the site of the old Welty mill. The Rifle Telegram announces that Stock Inspector Jim Simpson is at his post of duty again after a long siege of Illness. A rousing meeting of ranchmen and other citizens was held at Craig on Monday in opposition to the pro posed public domain leasing bill. Yesterday was Washington's birth day. and the occasion was duly ob served by the Masonic fraternity whichggi v e a grand ball in the even ing. J. L. McHatton has purchased two hundred head of steers from Pard Dodds. The price paid for the ani mals we were unable to learn.—Ver nal Express. The cold nights of the past two weeks made the ice men happy. Quite a crop of thin but clear ice was harvested last and this week, so the threatened ice famine will not hap pen. Joe Trachta, the Union Oil com pany driller, came in Monday, and next day, in company with Acting Manager Rube Oldland, proceeded to Rangely where work on the Union will be resumed next week. Our Buford correspondent reports that there was a surprise party in honor of Henry Genier's birthday at Sleepy Cat Lodge on Friday of last week.

Eagle Valley Stock Growers Ass ociaton met at Eagle last Saturday and condemned the present policy of the government in relation to leasing public domain and forest grazing tax. A resolution was passed binding the members not to take out grazing per mits or pay fees. The Yampa Leader of last week prints The Hrraia> item of late date auent the discovery of an error in the accepted boundary line be tweeen Rio Blanco and Routt, and then prodeeds to get excited over the matter. Be calm, neighbor! If the old Ute reservation line is the correct boundary between the two conunties that will suit us. The egg industry has grown to re spectable proportion in this valley. “Hen fruit” is now retailing at 12Rj per dozen in Meeker, and our mer chants are shipping consignments to outside railroad points. If we had a railroad, just think of the many pro ducts that could be turned into “the long green!” In consequence, our present production of nearly every thing is exceedingly limited. One of our high-school scholars, who lias been experimenting with a seismograph ever since the 'Frisco earthqnake, told the scribe the other day that he predicted a slight shock for Meeker in the near future, but he couldn't name the day. As the average mortal can withstand any ordinary shock, we say let it come. It might be a blessing in disguise; who knows? While in Vernal last week, Em* mert Van Cleave acted as one of the commission of citizens, carpenters and builders which passed judgment on the new Uintah county court house, and declared it unsafe. Judg ing by the report of the commission ers, Uintah county got badly victim ized in what appears—to the eye—a fine public building. Steps will be taken at once to repair the building and make it safe.

Mr. and Mrs. Wilson are visiting at Avial. Miss Alice Aldrich, Miss Sadie Berry, Messrs Earl Low and Clarence Aldrich attended the G.A.R. dance at Meeker last week. Thornburg has surely established a reputation as a winter resort; sixteen days of oonstant sunshine, warm moon light evenings, balmy air, and green grass. Roads dry and dusty. Black birds, blue birds and robins have Men around for several days. Cattle fat and ready for market Among the social events of the week was a musical and dancing party given by Mr. Earl Low.

D. 1807. WILLIAM H. WELCH, Administrator of the estate of fl«-m9 John W. Welch, deceased. E. S. R. Sabdbbsojt , Auctioneer. Said a prominent local RepaUjigi the other day: “If Roosevelt keMs up iiis present lick, his party ml have an intenger contempt for ts£pn than tlie Democrats ever had I|hr Cleveland. Not very long agarit looked as if Roosevelt's name would be handed down to posterity with that of Washington, Jefferson nnd Lincoln. Now it looks as if it will down linked with that of the Rat Democratic president; that is, whate ver bis name is spoken it is always in derison —by Democrats as well ms by Republicans.” It lias been said that the action of congress in adding $2,600 to the sal aries of representatives and senators, is a recognition of the increased cost of living. But the Republican party and the administration have denied that the cost of living has Increased. They issued official bulletins at pub lic expense to deny this, for cam paign purposes. The largest single advanoe In oil prices ever ordered by the Standard Oil Company has naturally followed the largest single contribution of Rockefeller money to public educa tion. If Roosevelt were a candidate to day wonder if half the Democrats of this county would be falling over each other in a grand rush to vote for him as they did in 1904? The Denver Chamber of Commerce is opposing the grazing system. Rangers to Serve as Wardens. The foreet rangers of Colorado will hereafter act as game wasdens of the state without pay, either direct or from fines imposed for the violation of the game laws. The arrangements for the addition to the ranks of game wardens have been completed by Mark G. Woodruff, supervisor of the Pike’s Peak forest reserve, and Dave Farr, state game and fish commis sioner. The rangers will be furnished with licenses and will, it is expected, prove very efficient game wardens.— Glen wood Poaf. The above reads well and sounds nice; but, say, don’t expect too much from the forest rangers. They are no more human than other people, like editors or any other class of citizens. They will make enemies enough in cldent to enforcing the forestry reg* ulatlons, and for which they receive pay. It can hardly be expected that they will vigilantly enforoe the state laws concerning game, especially when it's hardly a thank-you job. Surely graft has bad some bftitil knocks of late. But the desire to get something for nothing, is mighty persistent, and its elimination from human nature may require a few more ages.
