The Pershing Transport Route Colorado Springs, March 24. —With the incorporation under the laws of Missouri as the Pershing Transport Route, the Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean Highway association has taken the first step In its campaign for national recognition as a military route. Contrary to plans of other highway bodeis to adopt the name, the Pikes Peak organization has the cabled consent of General J. J- Pershing, from France, which was received shortly after the aunual meeting held at Bt. Joseph, Mo., de cided to adopt this name. General Pershing cabled that he would con sent to have the name used, in order that the highway could be a perma nent memorial, from coast to coast, of the men who laid down their lives in France. Brief History of the Meeker Public Library Pursuant to a call published in the Meeker papers, a representative body of young ladies met in the parlors of the Meeker hotel, July 12. 1918, for the purpose of organizing a Woman’s Club. The principle object of this organization being to establish a free reading room and Public Library. Two rooms were rented in the old government building, owned by Messrs. Tagert and Strehlke. Fur nishings were purchased to the ex tent of $13.46, which consisted of chairs, two rockers and an 18 ft book shelf. The expense of maintaining the library came to $260 per year. The Club also purchased $60.76 in books each year. There were many generous donations. The library grew to eleven hundred volumes. With six hundred cards in circulation by the year HUB, wlten it was taken to a vote and carried by the citizens of Meeker, that the library be maintained by the town, half a mill tax being levied for that purpose, which necessitate the con trol of the library Into the power of the town authorities. The Mayor, Mr. Simms, appointed two members of the town council and four from the Woman's Club to con stitute a town board, leaving the lagest control with the Woman's Club. The Club will continue to buy books with the help of the pnbMe. All books both fiction and reference books have been carefully chosen and all undesirable hooks culled out A set of histories of the late European war, two volumes to be published after peace terms are settled, have just been plaoed on the shelves. Mr. A. J. Pierce has given 60 books ; which were Mrs. Pierce’s. These' will bo given with memorial plate. ' hut will be free for circulation. Mr. Pierce has pledged to give SIOO per year in books. He also has a gift of $26 from Miss Getz of Cleveland. Ohio, which will be used for reference books. This is also done in memory of Mrs. Pierce. It was known not in Meeker alone that Mrs. Pierce's highest ambition outside of her family was the Meeker Library. She was qualified to do much for it, hav ing been a trained librarian, with much experience in that work. This in tier memory is most heartily felt in this community and greatly ap preciated. It is indeed a step forward. The half mill tax levy means that every citizen in Meeker, who pays taxes help support the library. It is free to every one whether you help or not. The present levy does not leave a margin for books. This is left with the Woman's Club. A play will be given in the near future to pay for the European his tories here referred to and to buy new fiction. Look for date. Secretary Town Library Board. According to press reports General Peashing has stated that he is not a Republican. This was to have been expected, as a large majority of graduates of West Point and Annap olis are Democrats at the time of their graduation no matter what their politics when they entered the school.—Haxtun Harvest. A Driver dispatch states that the governor has appointed Robert K. Norvell as highway commissioner in succession to Boyd Walbridge, who | declined another term. Mr. Wal bridge served two terms and could have had another if he so desired. Mr. Norvell is a good man for the job. Don’t kick about your income tax, but think what a snap you would have had if the Hun had the whip hand and was making you dig up for his expense during the world war.— Brush Republican. M. W.

CAlh’d oil George Lester on our rounds; lie turned us loose in his patch, and it goes without saying that we did ample justice to Ills gen erosity. George was saying he Wishes many a time lie was back in Meeker—only he can't be at both places. •Mr. and Mrs. Critchlow an toed down from Venice and spent a few j days here. “Well, we are settled down now j and are resting, recuperating and en joying the fine climate of San Diego.” Death of Mrs. Douglas Shepherd We regret, to announce the passing of Mrs. Douglas Shepherd which took place at. her home two miles west of town on Friday morning.
