THE MEEKER HERALD
JAMES LVTTLE. Editor A Preprftor SATURDAY. JULY A IMS Haying operation* are now well under way. 15th animal road race Basalt to Gleuwood, August 4th. Neutralise the high price of beef by raising pigs and poultry. Rev. Father Walsh will hold his stated services here tomorrow. A large party of government sur vey Inspectors are operating in this country at the present time. Road overseer A. G. Robertson, has the roads, up the river, in good shapes despite washouts, consequent on numerous late rains. C. B. Jeffries, formerly with the Union Trading company, is now at Old land’s. “Jeff” Is a popular sales man and a mighty fine fellow. The Meeker hotel plaoed a new up to-date register on the clerk's count er this week. It's a swell affair and In keeping with Landlord Ball's pen ctffcnt for having the best. This is probably the finest grain, vegetable and berry section of Colo rado, but until we get a railroad to the outside world, our efforts will be largely directed to raising $8 beef. In another column will be found the card of Miss Mulholland, which will Interest the ladles of Meeker. In opeulng up a hair dressing and manlcuriug parlor In the town a long neglected line of business is filled. On July 1, 1912. Clay, Robinson A Co., sold for a South Dakota feeder A2 branded western beeves, weighing 1597, for $9.66, or averaging $154 per head. This is said to be the highest price on the Chicago market in forty two years. The Rickart Kansas City letter re ports that market up and down, but prices are still high enough to cause the average White river cattleman as well as our dry farmer to take an interest in the auto and diamond quotations. One of the heaviest rains of recent years visited Meeker and vicinity last Saturday. In places it washed rocks, gravel and earth on the road ways, and some damage to standing grain, wbioh flattened out Other wise, It waa of great benefit to this part of the valley. Messrs. F. E. Sheridan and T. B. Scott are home again after attending to private business at Gtenwood. Frank says Thu Hrrald was pre mature last week in announcing him as a senatorial aspirant But he re ports—there are plenty of political material running loose on Grand river. Some changes which will add to the interior appearance of the Old land store, were undertaken this week. The book-keeping and office quarters were moved to the rear of the store, thus giving more counter room in front made necessary by the increasing volume of business at Otdland's. Last week I'hr Hrrald scribe was over that new section of the Moeker-Rifle road, from Alley’s to the top of the divide, recently built by the Rtley-Merritt company, and we feel like oompllmenting T. D. Riley for the good work done. The new road-way is up on the east bill side, out of that mucky flat near the top of the divide and on a perfect grade along the side of the hill. But there is not much use in spending money to build good roads till the broad tired system Is put in operation. It's all right to sing the praises of Steamboat strawberries (they are sure fine), but we can raise as fine strawberries here in the vicinity of Meeker as anywhere on the face of the earth. A few boxes left at this .offloe last Saturday by W. B. Salter of Powell park, proves our assertion. As there is no outlet for our berries, the raising of them is confined to pri vate use, but Mr Salter and others have demonstrated the great possi bilities of strawberry culture on the upper Whits with railroad shipping facilities. Mr. Parrotts is entertaining a dis tinguished party at his summer home, Windermere lodge, at present. Among Mr. Parrotts’s guests being Mr. and Mrs. William Loeb and Mas ter Billie Loeb, of New York, Miss Lucy Soper, of Bloomington, 111., and Mr. Fames of Buffalo, N. Y.

Mr. Cham berlain Is an enthusiastic worker for the Meeker-Rifle boulevard road. Mr. and Mrs. Sanford Green of Little Beaver, were In Wednesday. Mr. Green Is able to be around again after his recent mishap whereby he had two ribs broken. He was plowing when the plow struck a rock, throw ing him violently to the ground, with the above result. Sheriff John Ledford of Moffat county, came over from Craig Thura day, and took the two Moffat county prisoners, who have been coutined in Rio Blanco county Jail for a long time, over to Craig, where they will be tried at the coming term of the Moffat county district court. Clay Montgomery and family have returned to Meeker attar an absence of over three years, spent in Idado, Oregon and Wyoming. Olay says that in hla travels he struck no coun try anywhere near the equal of tills, and says that people have only to get away from here to find what a good country we have on White river. Mr. Montgomery will spend the summer here, but before settling down for good in Colorado will take a look at the Paradox valley in Mon trose county. Old Pioneer Jacques Freund of Ninem lie, autographed at the Meeker, Thursday. Mr. M. D. Eamea of Buffalo, N. Y., arrived at Windermere Lodge last Monday to spend several weeks with Mr. Parrotts. During the electrical storm Thurs day afternoon, lightning struck the barn of the Smith home, below town; but, fortunately did very little damage. Count Guillaraao Maglnnl (or in plain Irish) Billy McGinnis, western representative of the Parrotte Hat Manufacturing company, Chicago, registered at the Meeker, Thursday. Fishing with a rock Is the latest stunt of our piscatorial artists. H. A. Hermance, ranch foreman for H. S. Harp, saw a big one in shallow water and tossed a small rock at it Mr. Trout turned over aud Mr. Hermance helped him to dry land with hla bands The fish proved to be a live and half pound rainbow. Simp Harp exhibited him on our streets yes terday. Last week's Hxbai.d gave the Americana as winning nearly every thing at the Olympic games at Stockholm, Sweden.

DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL TICKET For President WOODROW WILSON For Vice President THOM AH R. MAKMHALL XXXaCOC>COO^X*C<>C>CXa-^X-XaOOOCCOC>^OC>OOC-C>CaX< All sign* point to this AS a Demo cratic year, and the result is a host of Democratic aspirants lor the various state offices. Senator Lorimer was made the goat by a lot of Republican senators who paid more for their seats than he did. Politically, things have been quiet in this (Rio Blanco) county, up to the present time, but from now on we look for more life along political lines. Quite a number of Republicans are quitting the G. O. P. and joining the Democracy. Queer these people didn’t see the light four years ago. Damn a quitter. On another page will be found a brief, but a very clear working plan of the new Colorado primary law. Attend this primary and show that you mean what you say wheu you shout “down with the bosses.” Ed Taylor has proved himself the best representative in congress this state ever had, and we don't see why he should not be promoted to the senate. He is certainly more worthy and able than several we kuow of who are aspiring to the toga. Go after it, Ed; you can win. Lieutenant Governor Fitsgarrald ha* favored Thk Hrrald with the formal announcement that hi* ”lid” Is In the ring for the Democratic nomination for governor, which leadß us to observe that the Democrat* of Colorado might go farther and fare worse. “Fits" has always been a Democrat, and is honest and straight forward. Former Governor Thomas is out with a formal circular letter an nouncing himself as a candidate for the short term in the United States senate. Mr. Thomas’ political judg ment has been somewhat erratic of late years, but there is no doubt as to his great intelectukl abilities. He would “stack up” favorably with the best of them if he is sent to Wash ington. Governor “Honest John” Sbafroth has formerly announced himself as a candidate for Guggenheim's seat in the senate; and—he may make it, for the “dear peepul” love a grandstand player. “Honest John” starts 4 qnt In life In good old Missouri as a Democrat; on arriving in Colorado, which was then strongly Republican, he joined the G. O. P. and was later elected district attorney of old Arapahoe county; lie was next sent to congress as an old line Republican; then the Populist wave struck the state, and he was returned to con gress as a Populist-Silver-Republi can; a third time lie was sent to congress as a Democrat-Silver Re publican-Populist, but lost his seat to “Handsome” Bob Bonynge, through a foul; on returning home with the vote getting cognomen of “Honest John” in front of his name, he be came a full fledged Democrat, and as such he has twice been elected gov ernor. Now he wnnts to represent Colorado in the United States senate, and we wouldn’t he surprised to see him land there. As we said before the “dear peepul” love to fool them selves. Catholic Services at Rangely On Tuesday or Wednesday of the coming week, Rev. Father Walsh will start for Rangely where he will celebrate mass, administer the rite of baptism and preach to the people of the Rangely section. The reverand father is one of the ablest and most popular men of his oreed that has ever visited the White river country, and Thk Herald be speaks for him a hearty welcome, not alone at the hands of tiie num erous people of his own comtiiuuioo, but the public generally. Once again the people of the Western slope are looking forward to the day of all days, for a days sport and outing. The usual number of riders have already entered, and more are in sight. Grand Junction, Aspen, Leadvllle, Basalt, Rifle and other point* are sending their best men to this event, and Palisade is figuring on a couple of riders, who with some entries from Fruita and Clifton will give the last years men a run for their money.
