George McKee reports the price of ! cattle high in Ashley valley and the reservation towns. George Lord passed through today on his way to Vernal where he will , receive a bunch of cattle. Jim aud Mrs. McGuire returned to Dragon a few days ago. Jim, to be i sociable, had the la grippe while he was here. Mrs. J. H.

Grover Bowman came down from his East Douglass creek ranch Thurs day and broughtalive mountain lion. The lion is about half grown and Is on exhibition in town. A surprise dance was given on Mr. and Mrs. Bart Howell at the “N -bar” ranch Friday evening. Two sled loads went up from here, namely: the Brock family, Minta Nichols and Perry Murray in one sled; Mr. and Mrs. Lee Marigold, Miss Pearl Ridge way and Miss Della Coltharp in the other sled. All report a fine time. An application for the Rangely post office was circulated for signa tures this week, for the appointment of Miss Leona Brock as postmistress. If Miss Brock is appointed the office will be moved to the Rector ranch about four miles below Rangely. Mr. J. M. Walsh had the application and of course got the names of everyone he was able to see. We hope the ap pointment is made as it would be a great inconvenience to lose the office, or have ic moved as far up the river as Spring creek. A. Scribe.

Dodge Brothers Show Marvelous First Year Start Making Cars a Year Ago and Now Rank Well Up Among the Leaders People Have Bought More Than $35,- 000,000 Worth of Cars and De mand Continues to Increase Dodge Brothers, Detroit, have just completed their first year as manu facturers of motor cars and the record established is unique even in this a maizing industry. The first completed car rolled out of the plant in December, 1014, and actual shipments started in Jauuary, 1915. With the close of the first year, Dodge Brothers merely state that the public has “bought more than $85,- 000,000 worth” of their cars. Nothing is said of production plans for next year, but the announcement is made that the demand, which has always been ahead of production, remains unsatisfied. The record made in the first year Is the talk of motor car circles. Be fore beginning the manufacture of a car bearing their own name, Dodge Brothers were well known in the trade as large makers of'automobile parts. But no one anticipated when it was announced that they would bring out a car that within a year they would jump among the first six companies in the country in the pro- 1 duction of cars. But such is the fact j and the career of Dodge Brothers is a sure to be carefully watched by both 1 the trade and public during 1018. u Closing Out At Cost Beginning, Monday, January 3rd.
