IMS POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS bfOrtnl Snif.it I hereby announoe myself as a candidate for eterk and recorder of Rio Blanco county, Colorado, subject to the will of the Democratic county assembly and the Democratic voters In the primary to bo held September 10, 1912. F. N. JOHANTOBN. Meeker, Colo. It's bad for the hay-makers. But good for the winter ranges. Mr. Parrotte spent Thursday In town. “Water to burn” is the complaint this season. Tom Burke of Piceance, was a town visitor Wednesday. Miss Carrie Oldland spent the week at Windermere Lodge “Little Ben, the kid jedge,” was sat on by the stockmen at Glenwood. Mr. Gordon, from Denver, is the new bookkeeper at the Bank o Meeker. P. W. Hockett, of the park, ex changed greetings with Meeker friends Saturday. Miss Katherine Wildhack is the guest of her young friend, Miss Mar garet Bartlett, at Buford, this week. H. F. Byers, the popular repres entatives of Carter, Rice, & Carpent er Paper company, Denver, called on our business men yesterday. M. R Slifka was in form his Line kilm hill form this week and reports crops on the hill looking fine, and grass out of sight Lightening struck the residence of J. W. Williams, in the east end of town, during the rain and electrical storm Thursday, but fortunately did’nt do much damage. One of the severest raiu and electrical storms ever known (while it lasted) visited these parts Thurs day afternoon. What damage done, If any, has not yet been reported. And —it was duplicated yesterday afternoon. ' Granger Claude Wilson, with his clothes covered with hay seed and his whiskers full of cuokle burrs, mingled with the town folks Satur day. Whiskers? Yes. We said whiskers! Sinoe Claude has become a steady granger he Is sporting a bunch of spinach that would make Farmer Corn tassel turn green with envy. Prospective Candidates Prospective candidates in nearly all of the counties are announcing themastvea for vartOQs offices, con formatory to the new primary law. In our neighboring counties to the north, Routt and Moffat—over a dosen Democratic candidates are an nounced in regular form in the Pilot, Leader and Empire, the Democratic papers of these counties; a like number are announced in Garfield county. In this county, however, prospec tive candidates seem to be timid in casting their top tog into the political ring, and, so far there are only two regularly announced candidates—one Democrat and one Republican. It will probably take one or more elec tions to get office holders and pros pective office holders used to the new order of things. As above noted, while candidates are shy, their friends are not. Both seasoned and green political timber for local use Is being inspected, and from today on available material to fill and county and district offices will be discussed. It is conceded on all sides that this is a Democratic year, and there is no lack of good material from which to select a local ticket. There are two commissioners to be elected —successors to Messrs. Baker and Bussell. We haven’t the re motest idea as to who the G. O. P. leaders will trot out for these im portant offices, but the names most talked of among Democrats, are, for the Buford district, J. B. Nimerick, former Commissioner Thos Kilduff, L. P. Craig and Charley Bloomfield. In the Meeker district, the 'names of Otto Metsger, L. L. Devlin, B. C. Howey and Bert Salter (of Powell park), are being urged by respective friends. For the important office of clerk and recorder, as will be seen In an other column, Mr. F. N. JoHantgen is a regularly announced candidate. “Jo” is an old-timer in the county, popular and well qualified to fill the position if he secures the nomination. The many friends of Claude Wilson are urging him to run for this posi tion, believing that the old cry, “Oh, he’s holding a good job now (book keeper at Oldland’s) cannot again be made to do good work against him. A break down caused Claude to quit his position at Oldlatid’s early the past spring. He is now doing the granger act on his dry farm up on Flag creek. Mayor C. F. Brown is the only Democratic name we have heard men tioned for treasurer* There will probably he others by the time the tenth day of September rolls round. For assessor the names of Fletcher Hay, George Aicher and J. W. Balnbrich are talked of. The sheriff’s office is an important one. R G. Lyon and R. H. Wear are urged to go before the primary- It is probable that they will do so. Not muoh It being said, about legislative offices. Nobody Mem to want the office of representatlye from this district The present senator from this dis trict, Hen. B. T. Napier will likely be a candidate for nomination. W. S. Montgomery of this place is also urged to be a candidate. And, of course—Jim Gentry will he renominated and roelected district attorney. Good Roads C. P. Allen, president of the state highway commission, arrived In Meeker last Saturday afternoon on a tour of inspection of the route of the proposed transcontinental highway, through this part of Colorado. Mr. Allen was met at Rifle and brought over to Meeker by Perry Spurlock in Ills passenger auto. Arriving here, the commissioner was met by the committee of citizens appointed some time ago to conduct him to the Utah line. The commit tee, which was composed of Messrs. W. H. Clark, A. C. Moulton, R Old land, Isaac Baer, L. B. Walbridge and F. E. Sheridan, entertained Mr. Allen at dinner at the Meeker hotel in the evening, and a number of our citizens, interested in good roads, were invited to meet him there. Mr. Allen briefly outlined the work of the Colorado Highway commis sion, and said, among other thiugs, that as soon as state funds, now tied up, were released, it was the purpose of the commission to help every part of Colorado in the laudable work of building good roads. He said the Utah authorities seemed to favor the Ashley valley-White river-Meeker- Rifle route for the continental high way, and that he would give this route thorough inspection as to its practicability before returning to Denver. The above named committee es corted Mr. Allen in autos to Bangely Sunday morning. On arriving there (by previous arrangement) they found a committee of five prominent Utah men with autos and rigs ready to escort Mr. Allen to the end of his trip in Utah. Messrs. Baer and Wal bridge, accompanied the commis sioner to Vernal, the other members of the Rio Blanco committee, having fulfilled their mission returned to Meeker Tuesday. At Vernal Mr. Allen will meet the governor of Utah and other high officials, all of whom favor the White river or water grade as a link in the transcontinental highway. The campaign for good roads is now on in real earnest, with every promise of ultimate success. W. T. and Mrs. Kisinger of Little Beaver, lost their baby girl. Mildred, Tuesday night, July2Bd, aged nine months. .The funeral was held on Thursday afternoon from the Metho dist ebureh, Mr. Coudary officiating.

Brown of the New York Central Mrs. Patterson has previously visit ed the upper White region on several occasions. Mr. Patterson is one of the Wiudy City’s big coal operators.

Don’t Trouble There’s a saying old and rusty, But as good as any new; ’Tis “Never trouble trouble Till trouble troubles you.” Don’t you borrow sorrow; Wait ti(l ’tis at the door, For he who runs to meet it Takes up the load before. If minding will not mend it, Then better not to mind; The best thing is to end it; Just leave it all behind. Then don’t you trouble trouble Till trouble troubles you, You’ll only double trouble And trouble others, too. One third off on hammocks at Shephard’s Hardware store.

MfftS., SAN FRANCISCO — J ■ We still have a few in Steamboat who imagine , that Teddy Roosehold will sweep the county even by run ning on an independent ticket. Of those we speak of are sew comers and were not here when the entire Western slope showed their displeas ure at Pinchotism and Rooseveltism. That was four years ago Two years ago it was different and many who’ had left the Republican party return ed to the fold. .The vote showed it, and especially was that true of Routt county, where nearly the entire Re publican ticket was elected. No, we don’t think the people of Routt coun ty have any use fora man who thinks he is bigger than the party.—Steam boat Sentinel. A Card of Thanks Through The Herald we wish to tender our grateful thanks for the many acts of kindness rendered by friends and neighbors during the ill ness, death and burial of our little daughter. Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Kisinger. Old Lady (to rich retired master printer)—And how is your excellent son, the divinity student? He grad uated from the academy about a year ago, I believe. Master Printer—Yes, just a year ago. And he’s doing so well! They pay him a wonderfully large salary an next year he’s going to get more. Old Lady—lndeed X" Thats very unusual.

Deafness Cannot be Cured uv local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portions of the car. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that Is by constitu tional remedies. Deafness is caused by an In flamed condition of tho mucuous lining of the Fustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rftmbling sound or Imperfect hear ing, and when it is entirely closed. Deafness is the result, and unless the Inflammation can !>o taken out and restored to Its normal condition, hearing will bo destroyed forever; nine caaiw out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed conditiou of the muo uous surfaces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any ease of deafness [caused by catarrhj that can not be cured by Hall’s Catarrh cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. CHENEY St CO., Toledo, O.
