Walbridge for Highway Commissioner Official notification of the appoint ment of L. Boyd Walbridge, by Gov ernor Ammons, as state highway commissioner, was received here on Monday. Mr. Walbridge is appointed to suc ceed himself as commissioner of this, the fifth district, comprising the northwestern part of the state. When the new highway law went into effect a year ago, Mr. Walbridge was appointed one of the five advis ory commissioners, drawing the one year term. He is now appointed for the full term of five years. These five commissioners draw no salary, but the state pays their ex penses while in attendance at the four meetings called for, at Denver, during the year. Owing to consider able detail work incidental to getting the new law in working shape a num ber of special meetings were held last year. The members of the board are leading citizens of their respertive sections. • Most of them are men of ample means and give their time to the good roads cause as a public duty. Last year, their work was of a most satisfactory nature, the publio funds being apportioned to each sec tion of the state in an equitable man ner. The re-appointment of Boyd Wal bridge is a deserved coinpliment’to that gentlemap and a reflected honor on Rio Blanco county. He is well qualified for the place, being a first class business man of conservative tendencies. He enjoys the con fidence of Commissioner Ehrhart and his colleagues ou the board to a marked degree. In Memoriam Last and this week The Herald re ceived letters from Canada and Cali fornia, for copies of our issue of Feb ruary 28th, containing the obituary of the late David D. Ferguson, and as deceased was a subscriber to The Herald from the time of his arrival on White river till the day of bis passing away, over a quarter of a century ago, we reproduce our itejgb from California papers: David D. Ferguson was born in Canada, July 2, 1848. He came to Colorado over thirty years ago; loca ted on Milk creek, now called Thorn burg, about twenty-seven years ago, where he acquired a fine ranch and stock property, and where he resided until he sold the estate to W. H. Wellman, after which Mr. and Mrs. Ferguson moved to Denver, where the winter of 1912 was spent. Last fall the Fergusons went to CaEfornia, where the winter was be ing spent pleasantly and plans made to return to Colorado coming sum mer, and also visit relatives in Cana da and the east. David D. Ferguson was a pioneer of Rio Blanco county; a man of blameless character; upright and honest in all of his dealings. His passing away is mourned not alone by his immediate family, but by all who knew him intimately. From California papers we learn that Mr. Ferguson was stricken down, Sunday, February 15th, while on his way to church. Apoplexy was the cause of death. He was consign ed to Mother Earth February 19th, under the auspices of the Odd Fel lows in a beautiful spot in sunny California. Resolutions by Valentine Lodge No. 47, I. O. O.

Signed by the committee, L. F. Van Cleave, Wm. Pfistkrek, J. E. Cloutier. | The Prohibition Ticket A goodly gathering of citizens, who believe in the prohibition movement assembled at the court house last Friday evening and placed in uom nafion the following ticket: . For Mayor—C. F. Brown. For Trustees—E. L. Davis, H. E. Phelps and A. G. Robertson. Mr. Davis has declined the nomi nation. He could have had a nomi nation at the hands of the Citizens party, but declined that—not from any indication to shirk his share of carrying the town burden, but be lieving that the duty should be as sumed by others who were here longer than he, and more familiar with existing conditions. The Eastern Star - On Wednesday evonlng, March 25, 1914, a large number of ladies, Ma son ieally connected assembled at Masonic hall, and discussed the proposition of forming a Chapter of tiie Easter Star, the woman's branch of the Masonic fraternity. As yet, plans are not definitely settled, but from the amount of in terest and enthusiasm displayed and large gathering at the initial meet ing, it is a foregone conclusion that the society will he formerly organized in the near future. The Ladies Aid One of the most enjoyable meetings of the season was held with Mrs. Heemer, Wednesday, March 25. After a short business session and a very pleasant social hour, the hostess served one of the Aid's famous lunches. This closes the series of surprise lunches, to the re gret of many. These affairs have been largely at tended, netting the Aid a handsome sum which is used to help defray the expense of the local church. The social feature has also beeu an im portant factor, tending to bring the members of the Aid into closer re lationship and stimulating interest in matters pertaining to the church. The meeting April Ist, will be for business and will he held with Mrs. Bates. Improving the Town Park the tMiMty com missioners can be obtained, it is the purpose of the Woman's club of Meeker to beautify the county park ai.d make it a place of recreation. The members hope to build at least two gates, to make artistic flower beds, place benches under the trees and make the Park as a. tractive as possible. For the children there will be swings and a sand pile. It is hoped that everyone will co operate with the club to make this plan a success. G. H. Mrs. W. C. Greene We, your sisters, of the Ladies Aid Society of the Methodist church, desire to assure you of our sincere sympathy in the loss of your husband. We share your sorrow. May the Heavenly Father comfort you. Mrs. Edith Hui.ktt, President Mrs. Mary Coudbav, Secretry. Meeker, Colo., Marcli 25, 1914.
