After an Illness lasting for over a couple of weeks, Mrs. Julia Wilson vas able to be out again last Satur <*»>•■ Ira Dunham haa told the Red Barn to the Murr Brother*, who operate the Rio Blanco Barn and Parmer* Home hotel. Lieutenent W. W. Baker wllll re- ( late Home of hi* experience* over in Prance, at St. Jame*' Church, Sun day evening- This is about the time of the year tiiat we make our annual observation < about the green appearance of the new grass; but—probably you have noticed it. Mr. Joe Wharton of White River, was in town forepart of the week, and reported that the outgoing ice on IMceance and lower White had done considerable damage. Ottie Owens ha* returned from Fort Collins, where he recently com pleted his studies In the farmers course at the Agricultural College. He immediately got a job on the Henry B. Murray ranch, below town. “Hal” Montgomery ha* arrived in “dear old U. S. A.” a* a member of Casual Co. titft, and write* to Meeker friends, from Camp Merritt, N. J., that he expects to soon be on hi* way home—to Phoenix, Arix., and Meeker, Colo. Good boy. Agent Kostitch got his shipment of Ford son tractors in Monday and gave a demonstration of their going qual ities on our streets, Tuesday. And another demonstration of their plow ing qualities in the lot* back of the Tagert residence, Thursday. Last Saturday we had the novel meteorological stunt of thunder and lightning, accompanying the heavy rain fall which visited this section at that time. We believe this Is the earliest electrical storm visitation to this section, on record. The flour mill is now running, with Dean LaGrange as head miller, than whom there is none better. Improve ments will be made at the plant and the intention is to turn out the best possible grade of flour. So none but the best grades of wheat will be received. Mr and Mrs. Rigby have heard from their boy, Hebert. After a time with the American Army of Occupa tion on the Rhine, Herbert, with a bunch of other Americans were de tailed to help reconstruct French railroads. They have German pris oners to do the laboring work. • District Attorney Frank Delaney had a time getting to Glenwood for the present sitting of court over there. Charles Engstrand did the neighborly act and took Frank from his place to within six miles of Rifle. Mr. Engstrand had a night drive of it, but got there, by the aid of a fast team. Kenneth Sanderson arrived home Wednesday, having received his dis charge from the Navy. Lately, he has been serving on the battleship Wyoming, which has bringing the soldier boys home, so had several trips to France. He looks well and feels well, after nearly two years of war duties ashore and afloat. It didn't take Raymond Hykes long after arriving home, to shed his army uniform, get into “cits’* and go up to his homestead, op the river, and see if was all there. Raymond wa* in France six months lacking one day. His regiment was in readiness for front line service when the armis tice put a stop to marching orders. C. A. Raison, the thoroughly com petent manager of the P L property on Pices nee creek, was attending to business at the county seat last Saturday. Mr. Ralston reprorts that his father. Pioneer Joe Ralston, who has spent the winter in California, is not gaining any strength out there and will be back to Meeker as soon as the weather is favorable. Assessor Davis went out on the Meeker-Rifle mail coach, Thursday morning, bound for Glenwood, where the western Colorado division of the State Assessors’ association is hold ing its session this year. At the last meeting of the assessors it was de cided to divide the state into three divisions, namely, the plains and the big cities for the eastern division; the mountain divislop, which will deal with the difficult mining propo sition, and the western slope division, to deal with matters peculiar to this section. Looks to us as though the new plan is the correct one. After spending over two months in Denver, Mrs. Moulton and Miss Mary returned to Meeker last Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Z. P. Mathes of lower White, attended to land office busi ness in town, Saturday. Boyd Walbrldge is horns again after attending to private and official business in Denver. Tom Valentine of Marviue, was among the up-river people in town during the week. George Wear of the lower country mingled with his town friend* for a spell, last week. Ed Davis df upper White, spent a few days In the city, this week. Henry Kurs, the Axial pioneer, spent a few days in town this week. I will buy your Liberty Bonds. *6 E. B. McNair. Very much spring-like past few days. MURDER A LA MODE “Bad Men” of Gotham Have Va rious Ways of Gaining Ends. Artist!* Methede *f the earnerra and Mafia In tharp Contrast With Crude Customs *f the Desks. Here's how the different “bad men" sf Manhattan engage in the pleasant pastime of “bumping 'em off." Along the water fronts, where many n man Is sent to the hippy hunting ground such year, the thugs are not artistic. In this section of town live the rough-and-tumble fighters of the docks. A blow from an Iron fist, a knife in the beck or n belaying pin over the “coco" serves Its purpose, generally followed by the hasty de scent of the victim Into the river. In the Mulberry Bend district, how ever, where the Cimorra end the strike terror Into the hearts of tbs Italian-born dtlsena, there la an artistic element that enters into the execution of s crime. The busy streets thronged with people will be jammed to capacity when the news of a shoot ing or the swift keen message of the Camorra Is discovered. Upon the ar rival of the police, no matter how many people may have witnessed the actual performance of the crime, there can never be found anyone who knows tbs least shout It. The vengeance of the secret society Is swift end cruel. Its very mystery Is more mysterious because you can never get an Italian to admit any such organisation exists, end If one men is secured who was seen to commit the crime the Oamorra cun find s dosen to swear that the culprit was miles away at the time of the shooting. In Chinatown death also comas swiftly end silently, but the native population sneeks for home the min ute n crime Is committed. Streets that n minute before were jammed with Celestials will empty in sn in stant, and except for slant eyes peep ing through closed blinds no Chinese can be seen 00 seconds after the news of a murder la flashed by some mysti cal method, through the quarter. Murder In Chinatown Is generally the vengeance of s tong against s member of some rival tong. Chinese, as a rule, take little personal vengeance without the backing of their own par ticular fraternal order. Their weapons are the ax, a “40" or native knife. In some of the other Oriental sec tions of the city poison Is the means of removing an obstacle from the path. Little information la ever gained of the activities of the Balkan black legs which frequent certain portions of the city. Since the start of the Euro pean war there are more crimes of Bal kan origin than ever before, for It la from this class of cutthroat that the "third section" or underground secret spy system of several European coun tries la recruited. Uptown, between One Hundred and Sixteenth and One Hundred and Forti eth streets, where the negroes congre gate, the favorite weapon la the rasor. Throughout Harlem the “gun-flghter" lurks, while over in the gaa tank re gion a man comes to his end by the medium of the blackjack or a abort lead pipe.

Philip Nelson, Priest-in-Charge. Methodist Episcopal Church Notes (The Church with a program) If you do not go to Church else where we urge yod to come to ours. This is a time when the Churoh stands for everything that tends to make this world better. Those who believe in the largest loyalty to our home and country, are coming to, in creasingly to believe that, in a time like this, the Church of Jesus Christ should take a place of commanding leadership, that sacrifice in treasure and blood may not be in vain. It is coming to be understdod that there are things which armies and govern ments can do in making the world safe fordemocracy. And.thoae things, please God, the Allies have fully ac complished. But there are other things which governments cannot do, and which arinlfa have never attempted to ac complish. Such are the works In volved in buildiug up the spiritual and moral foroes within a nation, and the works of removing ignorance and superstition, so that great people who once belated or debased may alt in equality around the council tables of the world. The regular servloes at our Church next Sunday. Hon. John Clark will speak In the evening. Our muelo is always good. Come to the "Home like Churoh." H.

He scrutinised it carefully when a copy was handed him, and then said: "Now I know!” “What Is it you are looking for,’’ we inquired. “My wife sent me after a bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Rem edy, and I Forgot the name. . I went to several stores and the clerks named over everthing in the llneonthe shelf except ‘Chamberlain’s*.
