Prices con tinue to move upwards, and the opinion seems to prevail generally ! that the horse business will be good I for some years to cone. Mr. A. J. Denton of Coal Creek, ! received the distressing intelligence ; Saturday, of the death of his son-jn- j to w, Everett Skaggs, in the railway j yards at Springfield, Mo. Mr. Skaggs waa a rising young railroad man of only twenty-two and his untimely end la deplored by family and friends James Mikkelson, deputy water commissioner, spent a few days early In the week upon Coal Creek seeing that fche waters of that stream were property distributed. The Piceance region usually furnishes most of the water troubles, but up to date, Mr Mikkelson reports no difficulties down there. Clarence Lamb has been appointed live stock agent of the Denver Union Stock yards. The many friends of Mr. Lamb throughout this section congratulate him on his elevation to this important position. Mrs. Lamb and the children will reside at Rifle for the time being, where Clarence will have bis headquarters. The resolutions adoptad by the public lands convention recently held In Denver seem to please every one. The Republicans rejoice be cause they indorse President Roose velt’ s land policy, and the Democrats are jubilant because they condemn it. The man who wrote them remains unrewarded.—Loveland Herald. An incipient blase, evidently start ed by lire crckers, in the rear of John C. Marshall’s residence, Wednesday afternoon, brought the fire depart ment out on the double quick, but the boys didn’t get a chance to see how quickly they could put it oi.t Msg. Marshall had it out with a few' * buckets of water before they arrived Mrs W. S. Fisk and children are now permanently located at Forest Grove, Oregan, a delightful college town of about 8,000 population only twenty miles from Portland. The place is not new to Mrs Fisk as she visited it two years ago, hek motlior and other relatives living there, and was much taken with the town and surrounding country. Mr Fisk lias bought property in the suburbs of Forest Qroveand will join the family there as soon us lie can close out ills interests in Meeker. Bishop Spalding’s Visitation. Bishop Spalding will be in Meeker next Saturday and Sunday, and will hold services at St. James church on Saturday evening and morning and evening on Sunday. Although Title Herald hopes not, j this may be Bishop Spalding's last official visitation to this mission. It is expected that, at the comiugchurch council a bishop will be appointed for Western Colorado. Of course, everyone who knows Bishop Spald ing would like to see him selected forth» Western Colorado- jurisdic tion, but fro cannot hope for such a piece of good luck. W. E. Senior, the able land at torney of Salt Luke City, who was in Meeker a couple of years ago ns at torney for the Wells, Fargo company iq tlie Lily Park land case, attended the late Denver convention as a dele gate from Utah and served on the resolutions committee. Mr. Senior was for tiie settlers and small stock men, and stated that Senator Smoot, tiie Mormon apostle, did not repre sent the Utah delegation or the ideas of tiie Utah people on tiie laud and grazing questions. As Smoot was given ids scat in the United States senate ut the hands of the president and administration following, lie was evidently at Denver to help repay the debt due Mr. Roosevelt. Roosevelt talks much of “the square deal;” but, it is quite evident “the deal” is only “square” when it is coming his way. It was a noticeable fact that all the forest supervisors and other government officials were ordered to attend the late Denver convention. Was this for the purpose of “squaring the deal” in the interest of the settlers or the administration ? The Democrats of Colorado will lie united in the next election, says the Denver Democrat. We hope so, but have our doubta. The coal mining town of Coal Creek, Cola, was totally destroyed by fire last Saturday afternoon, and we notice among the heavy losers was Alfred Salmon, brother of our fellow-citizen, Lige Salmon.

A canny Sootchtnati was taken to task by his pastor for his sueining disregard for the ten commandments. The .minister lecture him severely and wound up by asking him if lie knew the ten commandments. “Weel,”- said Sandy, “I am not sure aqout the first ten. but. I always made it a point to keep the eleventh commuuiment and it is about the best of them all.” “What is the eleventh command ment?” asked tiie minister. “The eleventh is, thou shalt mind thine own business.” WE WANT YOUR WEDDING PRESENT BUSINESS And are very certain wo can please you thoroughly. :: :: Your trade is desired by us for anything in the way of presents.
