One of our big cattlemen went out last week to look over a herd of cattle, and—came back and bought at home, where he did much better. A band of gypsies passed through Meeker on their way to Craig and the north. Aside from .tellAig a few “fortunes," they bothered our people but little. H. M. Belter, from Trinidad, Colo., is among the latest arrivals at the Meeker hotel. Mr. Belter is a high class workman in the various lines of painting.

Every base ball fan is now figuring out the dcpe and sising up the teams in the American and National leagues, and some have already got it down so fine that they can tell you what two teams will lineup for the world's series.

Even there Is talk of Meeker putting a strong team in the field to bid for the colors of the Western Slope. We have the talent, the ball park and the “rooters,” so there Is no serious reason why we can't pot up a winner that would put this town on tbs baseball map in big let ters. Talk It over, boys. Dan Moog says the next time be takes a gallant young man and a handsome young lady along to help survey a couple of homestead claims, well—he’ll see to It in advanoe that an anti-spooning agreement is duly signed, sealed and delivered. “Why, I couldn't see the rod half of the time, and every onbe in a while had to go ahead and see why the chain wasn't moving.” Dan, mustn't be too exacting on such occasions.

In rushing into the Mexican game let Uncle Sara remember the trials of an umpire. Abe Ruef of San Francisco at last finds himself in prison. What a chauge it will prove to a man who for years was the political boss at a great city, practically the dictator of its affairs, and rolling in the wealth he exacted from his position. And what a warning his fate conveys. In cases of rheumatism relief from pain makes sleep and rest possible. This may be obtained by applying Chamberlain’s Liniment Fur sale by all dealers.

There was a protest fllsd last week with the town clerk against the Tax payers' party, as they did nob file their ticket at least fifteen days be fore eleotlon. The clerk sustained the protest, and the Taypayers* com mittee then filed a vacancy nomina tion certificate, to which no objec tions were made. So there are still three tickets In the field.

IMI. ’ A Republican's View of Third Party Prospects There is nothing in the situation today that should lead Republicans like myself, who have always advo cated the belief that the party and uot the organisation should give di rection to party activities, to fear that any third movementat this junc ture is even possible, or that, if re forms within the organisation be car ried out, the Republican ticket will not be elected in 1912. With all due respect to the gentlemen mentioned as the possible exponents of the third party idea, they would not, I believe, if they were ultimately to attempt to organiz<*fcuch a party, meet a re sponse that would make such a move ment anything more than a defeat of the Republican ticket. Colonel Roosevelt and other pro gressive leaders still remain within the party fold, and, so far as the pub lic knows to the contrary, they are still exponents of the idea that reform should be carried on within the ranks. The Republican party is still, and will continue to be, despite a fatuous, even stupid, policy of party manage ment, an efficient instrumentality for national well-being.
