Whatever I ate caused gas and sourness. Also had stomseb oatarrh. ONE SPOONFUL buckthorn bark, glycerine, etc., as mixed in Adler-l-ka relieved me IN STANTLY.” Because Adler-i-ka flushes the ENTlREalimentary tract it relieves ANY CASE constipation, sour stomach or gas and prevents appetiHieltls.

THE WAR The Nation Preparing to Do Its Share—British And French Victories This country is going ahead aa | rapidly as possible with preparations. | Mobilization of the Nation's re source* is now receiving as mucli at tention as military organization. On the French front the British and French have made notable gains during the past week. In the Orient the British are driv ing tlie Turks ahead of them and* ; capturing many. A condensed summary of the Pres ident's appeal to the Nation in which he earnestly urges all to do their level best in this crisis of the coun try’s history, will be found on an other page. Let every one give heed to this patriotic and business-like appeal. The thing to do in this (Rio Blanco County) is to plant all kinds of food products. These United States have not only to produce foods for our own 100,000,000 people but for another hundred million in other lands. Prices of all food stuffs will be as high, if not higher the coming year, than last fall and winter, and will continue high for the next two years at least. The State Land Board, under Ray mond Miller, president, has already begun the actual appraisement of all lauds owned by the state. This was provided for by the recent General Assembly, and will do away with long waits on the part of people who desire to buy or lease state acres. Also the appraisement will bring' to Colorado several Hundred thousand acres originally deeded by the fed eral government, but heretofore un claimed by the state because they iiad never been classified or appraised. C. W. Fairchild, commissioner of Insurance, state of Colorado, is ren dering good service to our soldlera in regard to validating their insurance policies. Special attention is called to the fact that on some policies per mission is required and an extra war premium chargeable before engaging in military or naval service, and that their policies should be forwarded to tiis office for inspection. A Praiseworthy Movement A Denver dispatch says: James R. Noland, secretary of state, has Issued a call upon all em ployes of his office to contribute one per cent, of their monthly pay to the Soldiers' Family Fund. The payroll of the office amounts to approxi mately $6,000 a month, which means about S6O a month for the fund. Secretary Noland’s action was quickly followed by similar calls from Auditor Charles Leckenby, Treasurer Robert Higgins and Attor ney Leslie E. Hubbard. It is not unlikely that Governor Gunter will make a similar suggestion to ail other detached state employes, mem bers of boards and workers for the various institutions. This, of course, may be reinforced by a request from the Superintendent of Public Instruc tion, Mrs. Mary C. C. Bradford, to all the state teachers to contribute their mite. Secretary Noland figured that if the young men of the state were will ing to offer their lives on the alter of patriotism, then the state employes who will remain behind can do no less than donate a small part of their monthly wage to the maintenance of the families of those who will bear arms. Current Comment Sir Walter Scott's famous lines are now appropriate: “Breathes there the man with soul so dead, Who never to himself has said. This is my own. my native land !’’ The Telluride Examiner says of Senator La Follette: “He may not be a traitor, but he is a d—d close second to the fellow who is. George Canning must have had this gentleman in mind when he thought and wrote, ‘A steady patriot of the world alone, the friend of every country—but his own.’ " There can be no neutrals on Ameri can soil while the Nation is at war. You are either for or against the United States. If your sympathies are not with the United States you are an enemy and Americans will be justified In treating you as such.— Kremmling News. Joe Rooney has tired of the simple life of Meeker and departed for Den ver’s great White Way, yesterday. STAND BY THIS EMBLEM Clean Up Day At suggested by the Woman’s Club of Meeker, will mean a better Meeker and a tourists delight. Every citizen is earnestly requested to co operate with the Woman's Club in jnaking Meeker a cleaner town. Your alleys and back fences are eye i sores to your neighbors; clean them up, get a box for the old cans, have yopr ashes and garbage hauled away, cut the weeds and burn them, starve the fly, plant flowers and vines. Sun flowers will hide the unsightly fences and out buildings and at the same time furnish seed for the birds. Put up a bird house and see that the cat does’nt. get the birds. Starts campaign against littering the streets and lawns with hand bills and waste paper, by taking care yourself to place such matter where it belongs. The Woman’s Club is having the two parks and surrounding streets cleaned, and expects the citizens of Meeker to help in keeping them clean. Do not be satisfied until every spare foot of ground is planted in garden and flowurs. Do not be satis*, fled until your home is as attractive as “cleanig-up” can make it. To accomplish the best results in mak ing Meeker a “thing of beauty and a joy forever,” the co-operation of every good citizen is needed. Co operate with the Woman’s Club by reporting all uncleaned alleys and vacant, lots in your vicinity. Your property is worth more if it is clean. Assist in cleaning up by doing your share. We want Meeker to be so clean and attractive that all coming through will have a word of praise and carry away the impression that Meeker citizens are not behind the times. It boosts Meeker. It keeps down Infection and a great step towards cleayligess and good health will have been taken. Clean up.

Kansas,/Times: “Many a? former employe of the Leavenworth Times will learn witli genuiue sorrow of the death of Mrs. Emma Carney, which occurred at her home in Denver on Monday. Hack in the KO’s and early 90’s when Emma Whittrock was head of the business department of The Times she had the warm friendship of the entire force. “Emma,” as all called her, was the friend of every one con nected with the paper. From galley boy to the proprietor of the paper all consulted her on occasion and all felt that she was interested in their welfare. She was not effusive in her friendships but in a quiet, dignified way she gave all to feel that they had a friend in her. She had many friends in the city who have always been glad to welcome her back when she returned for her annual visits since she was married. It will be with deep regret that they will learn that she will return no more.” ♦ ■ ■ Taking Notice Says an Amsterdam dispatch : Warning that Germany should not underestimate the seriousness of America’s entrance into the war was voiced by the Berlin Tageblatt’s critic, Captain Persius, in copies re ceived here. “The United States military strength must not be shrugged at,” he said. “We must not make the same mistake we made regarding Great Britain’s military forces.” Miss Dorothy Bacon, who has been teaching school in Moffat county (at Three Springs), came up Monday on her way home to Delta, her school having closed last Friday. The Bacons will shortly leave Delta for Boulder, where Mr. Bacon has bought a truck farm.

He didn’t expect to make a whole fortune at once. ; But he began with a little deposit in the bank and piled ; up a fortune almost before he knew it.
