Tde old fellow got a good start last Friday night, when muoh rain felL On Saturday afternoon, about five o'clock, the old man got on the job again and etuck to it until after nine o'clock, thereby causing much dis satisfaction and discontent among the devotees of Terpsichore, who had planned to take in the dance that night, and much lurid language from tbe week-end shoppers, who were compelled to wend their splashing way homeward through the down pouring juioe. Next day the sun appeared and gave things a chance to dry out Sol did faithful work until noon the next day, Monday, when, he concluded that his job was ended and disappear ed, upon which J. P. reappeared. Heavy rains fell that day, which turned to snow on the flat-tops. This was followed by frost Monday night Tuesday was clear, with a freeslng frost that night Wednesday was clear and sun shiny, and every indication fora nice spell of weather was visible, but late that afternoon low-hanging clouds appeared on tne flat-tops, which an easterly wind pushed down into the valley, resulting in the heaviest rain ever seen here at this t me of year. Friday morning opened with the sun doing business at the old stand on White river, but with many fleecy clouds disputing his ascendancy.

Adams, connected with the general land office and at present en gaged In survey work in townships 6 and 7, ranges 01, 06 and 90 south, was a visitor In town several days this week and, with Mrs. Adams, enjoyed the apple pie day festivities. Mr. Adams is transit man In the field, with seven assistants, and he has found many discrepancies in the boundary lines In tbe upper Beaver Creek oountry and west. The Church field and the Glark surveys do not tally, with the result that a number of residents In that locality have been notified that their numbers are wrong, and it will be one of Mr. Adams’s du ties to unravel the tangle, establish permanent corners, and straighten out things generally. Before he can complete this job, however, he has some work allotted to him In the Di vide Creek country by the depart ment—Rifle Telegram. Word comes that parties of hunters going out from Rifle to Meeker are entirely too careless about shooting along the road. This Is endangering tbe life of man and beast They shoot promiscuously from tbe wagons into the fields. When some of these same hunters are fined heavily, others will take warning.—Rifle Reveille. Where the Money Goes What becomes of all the money the big trusts extort annually from the American people? Everyone knows that thes trusts exact millions of dollars In tribute every year, and a person from Mars, were he to visit this oountry and learn the conditions, would wonder how the trusts could get strong boxes enough to keep it all. Recently an enterprising statisti cian figured it out that Amerioan heiresses (the majority of them are the daughters of American trust mag nates) premit tbelr broken-down titled foreign husbands to enjoy the income from one and three-quarter billions, or seventeen hundred and fifty millions, of dollars. This money. If spent by the parents In America, by whom it Is earned, would educate approximately a mil lion children each year. Or It would give employment to two hundred thousand American workmen at good wages. Maine appears to be neither wet nor dry—just a trifle moist. COMING AND GOING. George Lord was on oumjMMrdi Monday.
