R. S. BALL, BSSSfSh— ! Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy This remedy is intended especially for coughs, colds, croup and whoop ing cough. From a small beginning its sale and use has extended to all parts of the United States and to many foreign countries. This alone Is enough to convince one that it is a medicine of more than ordinary merit. Give it a trial a d you will find th s to be the oase. The concrete foundations for the large additions to the State Bank block were finished this week. They are substantial enough to carry a sky-scraper. Stone work will be under way next week. An Agreeable Surprise “About three years ago when I was suffering from a severe cold on my lungs and coughed most <ft the time night and day, I tried a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Bemedy and was surprised at the promptness with which it gave me relief,” writes Mrs. Janies Brown, Clark Mills, N. Y. Many another has been surprised and pleased with the prompt relief afford ed by this remedy. The Meeker flour mill starts up this week with Dean LaGrange at the helm—so to speak. There is no better miller in the country than Mr. LaGrange. MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4. 1919. Base Ball To the surprise, and delight, of their home friends and supporters, Rio Blanco High School base ball team journeyed over to Rifle and de feated the Rifle high school team by a score of 23 to 0. The Meeker boys ten went up to Oleuwood and beat the heavy team that represents the high school there by a score of 10 to 0. Good work. The Meeker team was composed of : Melvin Crawford, George Beem er, George Soper. Robert Kyle, Robt. ('Hoard, Francis Rea, Ralph Peltier, Ralph Tagert and George Oglesby. COMING EVENTS The Mt Streeter town team (said to he a heavy one), is scheduled to play the Meeker boys next Saturday. Glfmwood is booked to play the Ri# Blanco boys a return game on October 18th. Craig high school has challenged Grand Junction high school to a game of foot ball, to be played at Meeker about the last part of this month. Meeker lias invited the Junction to bring along its base ball and basket hall teams for play here. In World’s base ball series Cincin atti has won two games. And now the London dispatches show that the British government, which is supposed to be tlie most ef ficient in the world, has had uo bet ter success running railroads (takeu over during the war) than that of Uncle Ham in like Held. The reports show that the tosses to the British taxpayers for the current year will be about *230,000,000, as against a profit to the private owners for the five years before the war of about *172,000,000. There is good reason to believe that tlie movement started by Texas Democrats to bring their party back to its old constitutional line will be come national in scope. In that event there will boa general casting out of demagogs who have been catering to special interests at the expense of fundamental party principles.—La uiar Sparks. It is understood that Ed Taylor will go after Senator Thomas’ toga. All right. Ed Is a gentleman and a scholar, and if he is inoculated witli Democratic principles, after election he serves the people regardless of party affiliations. Ed’s a real man, and the Examiner wishes there were more just like him.—Telluride Ex aminer. Tlie hunters are coining thru Rifle in large numbers these days all on their way north to the deer country. All tlie fellows travel by car these days and It is no longer such a good piece of sport to go deer hunting, for how in the world can any deer outrun or hide from a Cadillac or Pierce-Ar row car.—Rifle Telegram. Something will have to be done to put a few million Insy Americans to work in a productive capacity or this glorious country Is gone. We cannot travel tills indolent road much longer without running up against a snag. Those who toil are carrying too many loafers to make tlie grade. —Denver Field and Farm. Your attention is called to the pub lic meeting at Rooney’s halt on Th u rs day evening at 8 o’clock, when tlie Rev. Joseph N. Barnett will speak on The Nation-Wide Campaign. Mr. Harnett was attached to the 303rd Machine Gun Battalion in tlie A. E. F. and will have something interest ing to say. So long a* Red Saunders of the Hrusli Republican is willing to ask perplexing questions, lie might tell us what has become of the old fash ioned base ball game whose princi pal figure was a k—g of b—r and a dipper placed at third base.—Lamar Sparks. Walter Old land was a Rifle visitor on Wednesday of this week, having just returned from Kansas City, where he has been with a fine shipment of cattle from the Oldland Brothers and Joe Spence ranches on Piceance creek.—Rifle Telegram. Canada has a law that disfranchis es a slacker for fifteen years and pro hibits them from holding office. They go on the theory that man who won’t fight for his country shouldn’t have a country.—Brush Repubilian. Senator Sherman is against tlie league of nations because it is Cath olic, and the Irish are against it be cause it is English. Seems to he something loose somewhere.—Gree ley News Harvest Home Supper Will be given by the Ladies’ Guild of St. James church, at Rooney’s Hall, Friday, October 10th, from sto 8 o’clock p. m.; 36 and 60 cents.
