MEEKER, COLO., SAI URDAY, AUGUST 17, 1907. Town Council Proceedings. The board of trustees fnet hi regu lar adjourned session Saturday avei,- ing, August 10th. Present, President Pro Tern Carney, Trustee# Watson. Oldland, Wildhack and Lord. Trus tee Riley was excused from atten dance. The minutes of the meeting of Au gust Brd and sth were read and ap proved. * The following claims against tin town (water works fund) were exam ined, allowed and warrants order- >1 drawn for their payment: Colorado Telephone company 1 • * u ' A. Oldland AOo., Ti R. Hartke appeared before tin board and stated that the residents near the corner of Tillrd and M»rk-t streets wanted a street light at tint place, and that said residents-would pay for the light if the town ‘ wpul«l pay for the poles and wiring. A mo tion prevailed that the town SWlltl grant the petition, providing the cost thereof did not exceed $6.86. An ordinance was then passed pro viding for the issuance of SIO,OOO ad ditional water bonds, to complete tin system and provide the necessary fin fighting apparatus. On motion Trustee Wildhack was appointed a committee of one to con sult with the ranchmen along tin line of the water works system (tin main pipe line), to ascertain whether or not they are willing to pay their proportion of the expenses of a legal opinion as to the validity of the deeds granting such water rights, and re port thereon at the next meeting of of the board. It was further ordered that no tap ping outside of town lie allowed juntil such legal opinion Is secured. The board then adjourned. T. B. Scott Clerk. The New Minister. As announced in last week's Hkk- | add, Rev. Mr. Dennis, the neW min ister In charge of St. James ebfU’ch. I arrived and held his first seilglces ! last Sunday. j£- Although laboring under thejfcad- 1 vantage of fatigue and a severnpld. > contracted during the trip HjjHMr. I Dennis’ sermons —both ‘ evening—were well received bgHsrg< 1 congregation#; ht fSBt, tWe w*did I gentleman has created a moat fovor- 1 able impression. ( It is Bishop Spalding’s wish to have I Mr. Dennis look after the church < work generally In Northwestern Col- < orado—particularly the Yampa river 1 towns—assume the duties of an arch deacon, as It were; and as soon as he can get things going spiritually at St j James church, a trip will be made to the Routt county towns. Our neighboring town of Rifle has 1 also asked for Rev. Dennis’ labors, so time is not likely to hang heavily on < his hands. I Mr. Dennis comes from Elgin, 111., i where his work was of such a satis- j factory character that the bishop of i Chicago let him go very reluctantly. ; He is blessed with a charming wife and three fine children, all of which will fit into our social fabric very nicely. For the present the family is com fortably housed in the Watson rest donee. , As Hoon as the Rev. Dennis gets ( settled he will get acquainted with ( the people of Meeker and surround ing country generally. A Bad Accident. Miss Effle Trelease, who was visit ing at the McKee place on upper White, met with a most serious acci dent Monday. . Miss Trelease was riding on a wag on loaded with grain, when the wag on broke down, and she was caught in the wreckage, her left ankle being wrenched from the socket. Medical and surgical aid was sum moned as soon as possible and every thing done to relieve the sufferer, who was brought to town by Dr. Brunner, assisted by A1 Strehlke. The popular little lady i» bearing up under her suffering with much bravery. She is being well cared for at the Strehlke residence. A fire, supposed to be of incendiary origin, destroyed the Colorado A Southern freight depot and a large amount of private property, at Boul der, last Saturday morning. The fire was the direct cause of the explosion of a dyn&mite magazine and the dentil of four people, and serious in jury of thirty. One of the heaviest rains of recent years visited this section Wednesday afternoon and did much damage in town and surrounding country. Es pecially grain was considerably dam aged. ✓ Mrs. Miller gave a delightful enter tainment and reception, at the Miller house Wednesday afternoon, in honor of tier guest. Miss McMechain. Coacher that Sires Expressers. A Missouri breeder states his case in this wise: “In Cooper county, this state, there is an Oldenburg Coach stallion which weighs around 1,660 pounds. He lias proved a most successful sire on the native mares of tho district. The colts now grown to maturity will average about 1,400 pounds and are what Is known as ‘good general pur pose’ horses. In other words these horses are good on the plow, cultiva tor aud democrat wagon, on the road hauling wheat to market, in the family carriage going to church, and they are favorites witli the young men as buggy horses. They (the horses, X mean) are shapely and up headed. You have counseled against trying to breed general purpose hor ses. What do you make of this case?” Our correspondent has given a very good description of the best kind of express horses and it has paid to breed such horses, for they are al ways in good demand and bring good money! An Oldenburg Coach or any other horse that can beget such ani mals with regularity Is a great trea sure. He should be kept in the same neighborhood all his life. If his ow ners offer him for sale their neigh bors should club together and buy him at once. The horse described can do many things well and these very things are just what is required of an ex presses They cannot pull with the real drafter nor can they trot with the trotter nor act with the actor, but they can move off at a good pace with a large load and owing to their shapeliness and good style are alto gether desirable. We have known several Oldenburg Coach stallions that begot this kind of horse. We believe that the effort to rear such horses is thoroughly sound policy for the man who does not like the drafter. The get of the Oldenburg coach stal lion, averaging 1,400 pounds in weight ure expressers, and apparently good ones at that. They can go onto the market under that name and bring good prices. Some of them, the lighter ones among them, can serve capitally in the wheel of a road or park coach, and at the same time these horses give much satisfaction at the various kinds of work afforded on a farm. They look like pretty good horses to breed where a man does not want the power on the farm afforded by a pair of draft horses that weigh from 1600 to IHOO. Hon. John L. Routt, last territorial and.first state governor, died at his home In Denver last Tuesday morn ing, In tho eighty-first year of his *g«.
