Church Play The presentation of the mystery play, “Two Litle Pilgrims and the Book Beloved,” was an event long to be remembered as it iiad never before been given in western Colorado. In spite of the stormy night which kept many from attending a good number were present. The play was devo tional, reverent and while in structive the manner in which it was presented was so beautiful and in teresting, the attention of the audience was held throughout.

The costumes of those partici pating, the beautiful decorations, the lighted alter, the mystic cross, to gether with the sweet solemnity which pervaded it make the scene one long to bo remembered. The Right Kind of a Progressive Responding to the greetings of a deputation of the Democratic Na tional committee, the other day. Governor Marshall, nominee for vice president, made the following states manlike declaration: “There are many kinds of ‘pro gressives’ nowadays. One believes in taking the tariff off lowa products and putting it on Indiana products, and another supports the opposite policy. I am not that kind of a progressive. But if the term means to believe that the Democratic party should meet changing conditions in protecting ttie people against the special interests, I am progressive.” The above shows that the Indiana statesman is the right kind of a progressive, and not a mouthy grand stand player, like some of our alleged progressives. In 1852 the Whigs did not realize that their party was dead until they received an invitation to the funeral in November of that year. History is about to repeat itself. MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1912. The Editorial Outing The members of the Colorado Ed itorial Association had their annual summer meeting and outing at Steamboat Springs this year. Including the editors of moat of the state papers and their immediate families, were the representatives of all the big city papers, and the party all told numbered between three and four hundred people. The many pleasant features of the trip will long remain a green spot in the memories of all who participated in the outing. Leaving Denver on the morning of July 7, the green fields, high grade stock of all kinds, and comfortable looking homes of the farmers who live along the route of the Moffat Road to the foothills, presented many pleasing Beenes. As the road winds through picturesque South Boulder canon—darting in and out of numerous short tunnels, a succession of scenis beauties is revealed. Up to Corona, “the top of the world.” (altitude nearly 1,200 feet above sea level), an ever interesting scenic panorama of gulch, gorge, pine clad mountain and snow capped peak is presented. The scenery on both the eastern and western slope of the Sierra Madre (the main range of the Rockies) is grand and in places inspiring. No pen can adequately describe it; it must be seen to be ap preciated iu all its sublimity. The ride down the western slope into Fraser valley and upper Grand presents many scenic beauties, com prising rich meadow lands, verdue covered hills and rugged mountains. Reaching Hot Sulphur Springs, a hearty welcome was extended to the “pencil pushers” and their families. A committee of leading citizens escorted the editors from the station to a grassy knoll at the edge of town where a fine spread of baked trout and everything else good to ent was in readiness, prepared by the good people of the town, and to which full justice was done. The new mammoth bathing pool was also placed at the disposal of the visitors. Many took advantage of the courtesy, after which three cheers were given for Sulphur Springs and its hospitable citizens, thjpn out ~ Ayers land Gore canons were the next points of interest. Of Colorado’s many canons none possess greater 'scenic grandeur than the Gore. After passing4>ut of the canon, the engine gave out necessitatinga wait of about four hours for another engine, whicii was dispatched with all haste from Oak Creek. Not a grouch or com plaint was heard as a consequence of the unexpected delay. The time was spent in telling stories, singing and general merrymaking. On arriving at Yampa, a commit tee headed by the always genial Ham G. Adams of Steamboat, boarded the train, and proceeded to arrange for the accommodation of every one of the three hundred and fifty odd visitors to the Routt county me tropolis. Arriving at Steamboat, committees of citizens, autos and rigs of all description were on hand at the station to conduct the visitors to their assignments at the hotels and private homes. This feature was a new one, and one of the most perfect and satis factory that we have ever seen de vised for taking care of a large crowd, it was carried out with promptness and worked to perfection. Steamboat. Springs is to be congratulated on its inauguration. The civil offlcers.and citizens of this beautiful resort town had ar ranged an elaborate program of en tertainment for the visitors. At the bath houses, various springs and lame hot swimming pools (in doom and out doors) the legend was writ ten, “Welcome, Knights of the Quill; this Place Belongs to You.” Autos, carriages and tallyhos were free and at the disposal of all to visit the many points of interest in and around Steamboat. Committees and guides were always in readiness to escort the town’s guests to ail places of interest, such as the famous boiling spring north of the city, the fish hatchery and the strawberry fields. The capsheaf of the program, how ever, was the flsh fry and big feed of the famous Steamboat strawberries tendered by the citizens on Monday afternoon. That evening a grand hall was given in honor of the visit ing scribes and their wives and sweethearts. One good old time was had by all. After two days full of enjoyment the quill drivers left Steamboat, regret ting that their stay could not be pro longed and iotid in their praise of the townand its hospitablepeople—partic ularly tile newspaper boys—Charley Leckenby and Del Gee of the Pilot, John Weiskopf of the Sentinel, and Sam Adams and his estimable wife, all of whom were tireless in seeing j that the strangers within their gates had a good time. On the homeward trip, brief stops were made to view the Oak Hills property of tiie Moffat Coal company and at the flourishing mining town of Oak Croek. Of the many good times and de lightful surprises sprung on the editors during tiie trip, the small cattle growing and fanning town of Yampa, located in southeastern Routt'county, near the headwaters of Yampa river, carried off tiie palm. It was on tiie program that tiie party would be treated to a chicken dioner at this place. Arriving at Yampa on time tiie train was met by a reception committee, a fine brass band, a cavalcade of well mounted cowboys, carriages and rigs sufficient to convey tiie party to a shady grove at the edge of town, where was served about the swellest spread it has ever been our good fortune to go up against. Tiie bountiful supply of delieious roast chicken was only one of [the component parts of tiie banquet. And tiie manner of its serving could not have been im proved on. Til is flue spread was topped witli punch and cigars for tiie men, and floral offerings for the ladles. Suffice it to say, “Yampa on-the-Bear” and its people will long remain a bright memory in the minds of the Colorado editors and their ladies. Among the citizens who seemed to be leaders iu this happy and well carried out affair were Mayor Van Camp, W. H. Burnside, Sam Reid, Arnold Powell, John W. and I)r. Cole, J. W. and H. E. Sherman (tiie Leader men) and others we failed to meet. After leaving Yampa, the scenic wopders, which abound on every sidf, in every mile of the Moffat. Road, and which were missed owing to the delay noted on the way in, were greatly enjoyed, and all went well till Granby was reached, when it was learned that a train was de railed up on tiie Fraser. This acci dent delayed tiie arrival iu Denver over four hours, but as before, not a whimper of discontent at the unex peefced delay. train pulled into the depot, in Beaver, at 8.80 a. in., Wednesday nrolfrifng, all well and happy and grateful to the management of the Moffat Road for the courtesies tendered, tiie careful train crew which piloted them safely over the road, and last, but not least to tiie only Alva Swain, the secretary, who arranged tiie most enjoyable and successful summer outing in tiie history of the Colorago Editorial Association. And we cannot close without pay ing tribute to the association’s patron saint, Wolfe Londoner, who was along as usual, and, as usual, dis pensed his ever pleasing hospitality with a lavisli hand. This old Colo rado pioneer and prince of good fellews, has been a member of tiie Colorado Editorial Association since its oranization, some thirty odd years ago and never missed-an outing or a meeting. Long may he live and prosper. Farming Chances The Government does not think that farming is overdone. In fact., it believes that tiie unemployed should be more generally distributed on tiie farms, and. through the Department of Commerce and Labor it lias just issued a publication entitled “Agri cultural Opportunities,” Which can lie had free on application to tiie De partment in Washington. Tiie bul letin discusses briefly tiie climate, surface, soil, irrigation and dry farm ing, (where practiced), principle crops, stock raising, prices of land and inducements to settlers, farm ex penses and general inducement of different sections, including tiie North Atlantic states, the North Central states, tiie South Central states, the Western states, including tiie Alaska, and the southern group of Western stats including the Ha waiian Islands. Those interested are told where they can get fuller in formation. When Tom Platt made Roosevelt Vice-President he certainly had no conception of what lie was starting. As for the Democrats, will they please do their best/.* They can carry 40 out of 48 states for Wilsou by a strong pull.
