THE MEEKER HERALD
JAMES LYTTLE.SdItor A Proprietor maas=s ■■ " —■■■■ ■■■ - SATURDAY. NOVEMBER ». 1918 “Do your Christmas shopping early,” is now the slogan. Dr. and Mrs. Hubbard made a trip to Grand Junction last week. The work of putting in the base ment walls of the Frank Keel resi dence Is well under way. There can never be too much blue sky, even in a country like this where the sky Is blue most of the time. Mrs. Harry Goff has gone to Flori da, where she will spend the balance of the winter with her son Claude and wife. Last Monday, Winifred, daughter of John C. Marshall, fell and frac tured her collar bone. Dr. Hubbard set the injured member. Messrs. Bainbrlch, senior and junior, of Plceance, were Meeker visitors midweek. The elder Mr. Bainbrlch is In very good health and hearty for a man nearing ninety. The Wldermere Lodge company got an average of S6O per head for yearling steers this fall. Pretty good price, but the Parrotte ranch raises good stuff and “Pat” throws the feed into them. W. H. Clark and the Meeker mem bers of his surveying oorps returned to town Wednesday. Mr. Clark Is done with field work for the season, but will be engaged on office work for the winter. Mr. B. C. Howey, who knows as much about the cattle business as any them, says when he can get $46 per head straight for his yearlings he U always willing to let the other fel low own them. Frank Hossack, who is driving one of the Spurlock ooaches, says he never saw the Meeker-Rifle road in such bad condition. Recent rains in the valleys and show on the divide put this well-used highway almost out of commission. Dan Moog is back -from the lower oountr y after doing various private surveying stunts down there. Dan says the Moffat survey oorps Is plant ing survey pegs all over the lower White region, and then palling them up again. John Shepherd now has a cosy oAoe In the rear of his hardware store, where he can do some work and not disturb the debate going on among the Sons of Rest, assembled in solemn conclave around the big stove in the front. A report reaohes this office that Frank Delaney passed the Arisona bar examination with an average of 96 per cent, the highest in the class. William Jennings Bryan, Jr., ranked second, but, he couldn’t beat the Rio Blanco county boy. A Boulder dispatch reports 20 per oent increase of new students over the number of new students last year Is shown on the registration lists of the University of Colorado, according to figures given out by Fred E. Hagen,"register of the University. Ralph Lytle got back from the Yellow creek region, Saturday, where he was acting as machlnest for the Lytle - Dowler well drilling outfit; and—-then “hiked” for Denver, to see, we presume, what’s doing on that town's “great white way.” Say, Ralph, slow up or we'll put your “Dad” next Tobe House and the Van Cleave boys— Emert and Burton returned from lower Yampa river, Thursday, where they had been on a wild goose and duck hunt The “bonkers” were pretty foxy and it was hard work to get anywhere near them. However the party got two ten pounders. They bagged all the ducks they needed. A few weeks a ago, “A Box of Monkeys” afforded Meeker fun lovers much amusement Now, six small “monks,” in the Konopik A Walden hotel windows, are furnish ing young and old considerable di version. While east lately, Mr. Konopik purchased “da monks” and and a bunch of German squirrels. The menagerie seems to be enjoying life in its new home. Harp A Moulton delivered 400 head of ones and twos on Yampa river, last week. A bunch of ones and twos were disposed of to the Ladder brand cattle company of Wyoming, at an average price of S6O per head. Two hundred*head of fine twos were sold toRH. Davis of Denver and Wyom ing, as the starter of a herd. Rob (like his father, the late Mr. J. C. Davis) has made a success of every thing he has taken in hand, and now proposes starting in the cattle busi ness right STANDARDIZATION OF PARTS. Eli Whitney's Scheme Revolutionised the Manufacturing Susineoa. The system of the standardisation of parts, now so universal, originated with Eli Whitney, the Inventor of the cot ton gin, when be undertook to make muskets. The government gsve him s contract In 1798 for 10,000 stands of arms, although he had no “plant” for their manufacture. He built e small factory In New Haven, Cornu, and be gan work, bat found e greet obstacle in the difficulty of getting good work men. especially those capable of acting as foremen under his novel methods. His plan, as is pointed out by George lies in s recent original study of Whit ney’s achievements, was to make of his factory a single huge machine. In an armory before Whitney's day each man. highly skilled, produced by him self a distinct part of a musket This division of labor Whitney supplanted by so apportioning work that little or no skill was demanded. He separated the various tasks and at each of these operations kept a group busy. For their assistance he simplified each op eration and Introduced three aids sines indispensable in manufacture—drilling by templets or patterns, filing by jigs or guides and milling Irregular forma From first to last a model musket was copied with precision so that ev ery lock, for example, was exactly like every other among thousands. When all the parts needed to form a weapon were assembled they united much su perior to a musket formed on any oth er plan. In case of repair a new part exactly fitted the place of an old part and at a trifling cost In order to accomplish his purpose and carry out his contract whose exe cution was much prolonged, Whitney was obliged to Invent new tools and machines at every step, none of which was patented. By doing so ho not only greatly improved the finish and accura cy of his guns and tbs speed of their manufacture, but so Impressed the val ue of the Idea of standardisation upon the minds of manufacturers that It was presently applied in other trades and has long since become the rule in man ufacturing.—Harper's. A CHAMPION SPELLER. Heraoe Qreslsy Was a Wander When Only Six Years ef Age. No champion of the old time spelling matches, perhaps, ever excelled Horace Greeley. He was. In fact, a spelling prodigy. What would the boys and girls of today, who grumble over their dally stint of twenty words, thiuk of a child not yet six years old who could actually spell every word In the lan guage! That is what the young Horace is said to have been able to da His schooling began in his fourth year, aad the art of spell lag at once became a passion with him. In school and out be kept incessantly at its study. Hour after hour be would 11s on the floor, spelling over mil the diffi cult words ho could find in the flew books that the family owned. The fame of his prowess spread. Naturally Horace was the first one chosen at spelling matches. He had a lisping, whining voice and spelled his words with the utmost confidence. Sometimes In winter, when the snow drifts were so deep that one of the big boys had to take him to the school house on his beck, the little white haired fellow would drop asleep be tween turns. When his, word cams round his neighbor would nudge him anxiously. He would wake, spell his word and drop asleep again at once. Bo great was the boy’s reputation as a student of unusual powers that the selectmen of a neighboring town. In passing a rule forbidding the attend ance at the local school of any pupil from outside the township, honored him by adding the clausa “Excepting only Horace Greeley.”—Youth’s Com panion. Saroaetla. This Incident la related of a Scotch doctor, new to the gun, who adven tured upon a day's rabbit shooting. Chased by the ferrets, bunny was a rather quick moving target and the medico waa not meeting with the suc cess he anticipated. “Hang It all. man,” he exclaimed im patiently to the keeper who accom panied him; “these beasts are too quick for mer “Aye, doctor,” the pawky keeper re plied. “but ye surely dldna expect them tae lie still like yer patients till ye kill tbemt” Yet He Liked Freeh Ala “My husband was st s smoker Sat urday night and never got homo until about 1 o’clock.” “Waa that why be wasn’t at church Sunday morning?” “No; be says the ventilation Is so poor In church and the atmosphere al ways gets so heavy that he can’t keep awaka”—Judge. A Surprise Coming. Pastor’s Wife You understand. Mary, that I am only “at homo” on Wednesday from 8 to ft. Mary—Yes. ma’am. Then to herself: “Mary, what a heavenly situation yon have gotl The mistress only at home for two hours every week l“—Exchange. Always Late. “Men are always late. I have watted here since 7 o’clock for my husband to come. Now it la half after 8.” “And when were you to moot him?” “At fi o’clock.”—Luotlge Blatter.
