Rocky Ford Enterprise.
Supplement THE SENATOR DROPS IN. SI«o« (kfiMMa Maku a PrMy CaN ow Rocky Ford. Senator Simon Guggenheim. accom panied by his personal Attorney Horton Pope, arrived in Rocky Fold yesterday on what should have been the morning tram but which did not get m till after 12 noon. He was met at the station by E. J. Smith, Cba ( rman of Republican County Central Committee, W. B Gobm. Col. J. A. Lockhart. J. E. Oodding. H. w Lance and other promluent citizens of the Re publican faith, and invited to the club room of the Rocky Ford Club, where he he.d an informal reception for an hour or two. mooting a number of prominent citizens, both Republicans and Democrats. He made a brief visit to the sugar factory. The Senator has been making a tour of the agricultural regions of t!»e state, having done the northern part and tne western slope during the summer, and now the Arkansas Valley, returning to the Stale Capital last night. His trip, he said, was purely with a view to getting a personal knowledge of the several sec tions of his constituency and learning what might be its particular needs in a federal legislative way. It had also given turn an opportunity to meet some of his political and personal friends. He had not been cown the Arkansas Valley for ten years and the devalopmen mads, he said, was a revelation to him. He left on the p. m. train for La Junta, to cateh the later up train. Working Up Ike Hospital. The Hospital Association has contract ed to lease the Si John building upper floor rooms for their temporary use as a hospital and the agreement will probably be signed up this week. The committee on funds made some calls on the towns people last week and the responses were prompt and liberal Enough money has already been subscribed by the doctors and by others to supply the equipment immediately needed. The Association has in mind the construction of a building in the near future and for this reason the present arrangement wIU be for tempor ary quarters. The subscriptions are made in the form of stock certificates, which of course will not be dividend pay ing. it being understood that all subscrip tions and all revenues are to go into the building and maintenance fund of the hospital. The doctors, who have lead off in the subscription of funds, are on the same footing with the rest of the sub scribers, no profits from the hospital ac cruing to them. The hope is that before long a creditable hospital building will adorn some sightly location adjoining the town limits. Charles G. Williams, the revivalist who has been engaged for the big revival campaign planned by the local churches, writes the committee that he will be ready to begin work in Rocky Ford on the 17th of the coming month. The Dunkard Congregation this week begun the construction of an addition to their church building. The addition is 18 x 56 and is intended for Sunday school class rooms. Provision is made by con structing a cellar under it for the intro duction of furnace heating later on.

The M. U. Church Folk' Give Recep tion to Now Paator. The congregation of the M. E Cn jrch gave a reception to tneir new pastor. Rsv. PuUshinsky. on Tuesday evening last in the chu»ch parlors. Theie was a good attendance of both the elder and younger membership of the church and a good get-acquainted time was enjn>ed. Short speeches were made by O. W. Barkley. Sr, P. J. Relfsl. Rsv. Harter, of the Christian Church and the new pastor of tbeM. E. D. W. Barkley In his welcoming speech said: "Tbs membership of the Rocky Ford Methodist church calends a most heaity welcome to the new pastor, even if his name is not Martin Luther Wasley. He has proved that a man can be a goad Methodist although handicapped wiui a name ending in Tnsky.” We know that be has done splenoid work in other chargee. The earnestness and activity he has displayed in all branches of church work during the short umt has been in our ministerial connection is propnstio of a most successful work in Rocky Ford. Such cannot but be lh« case if he has the cooperation of the membership oi the church. Some years ago in his first sermon in a new charge a Methodist pastor said: There are four members of this church who can make my work here a complete failure. He may not have bed any particular four members in mind, but wishsd to impress the fact that four mem bers of ths church by unfriendly criticism, by unreasonable opposition and by a con tinual throwing of cold water could pre vent the accomplishment of all the good which he had planned to execute as preacher and pastor. I suspect that this prsacher was right and that similar con ditions sxiat in Rocky Ford. If so small a proportion of the church as four mem bers can do so much mischief, Ist each of us be sure that we are not oneof the four.” Music was contributed to the evening's program by Mrs. (Dr.) Sigman, Mrs. Harry Johnson and Mrs. Roy Elssr. Tha refreshments supplied by the Isdies took the form of doughnuts and coffee and were duly relished. The local District Convention of ths W. C. T. U., lately held in Pueblo, honored three Rooky Ford ladies with the chief offices of the organization. Mrs. Manny was elected president, Mrs. A. L. Kellogg •secretary, and Miss Cora BUnn treasurer. W. C. T. U. Twenty-Eight Annual Mate Conven tion al Clreeley on Oct. 0-11. Beautiful for situation and abounding in royal hospitality. Greeley « c l.omed. with ouUl/etched hand, this largest of W. C. T. U. State Contentions. Roll call show ed one hundred and sixty-eight voting delegates and a goodly number of v.til ore in attendance, the sett.cnt btmg i.sld in the new and commodioo* M, E. Church. A remarkaole feauture of Uus convention was the eminently halpfu. and practical, perusing more of lie institute or school of methods Idas than the u»ual conven tion routine. At the Diamond Medal Contest our de legates wore pleasantly %ur prised loses our Leland Pollock, well kn>«n n Rocky Ford end now a etuder.*. of Colorado College, classed with thi t.x competing young ladies- But by eon.c unfortunate mtsunderstanding. Mr. Pu.lock did not arrive until the evening succeeding tne contest when the convent mtUud on hearing him and privaUly accorded him the medal won by one of the six fair com petitors. Lest you think the conversion all hard work, as might be inferr«J from the White Ribbon badge bearing the pouu as an emblem and interpreted "dig.” your four delegates might tell of the pleasures of a drive given by the Commercial Club of Grooley. Autos and all kinds of car riages bore the delegates over the city end surrounding country to view ths nsw City Hell, the C.ty Library, sugar fact ories with other pubic buildings; the beautiful parks and wide shaded slrerts and avenues: also the process of harvest ing ths famous Greeley potatoes. The Rocky Ford delegation was fortunate in having as escort Prof. Harrison, at one time connected with our city schools, and visited the SlaU Normal, beautifully located with he forty acres In full view of the grand old Rockies The new etxty thousond dollar Normal I ibrary for the exclusive use of Normal students elicited much admiration and here we met one of “our girls,” Miss Latson, just fresh from the gymnasium and ro*dy for work in the Library. Another pleasant diversion was a visit to the high school where a dozen young ladies gave an object lesson in Y temper ance work. During Convention an invitation to join the Federation of Woman's Clubs was acted upon, but while in harmony with Club work along many lines.it was deem ed unwise to accept the extended invita tion. Next year the Colorado women are to entertain the National Womens' Christian Temperance Union and we are hoping for great inspiration from such an enthusi astic gathering of white Ribboners.

The first time 1 blacked up was with cork from the bottom of mother's soup kettle. I mixed it with grease, and couldn't get clean for lour weeks. Rut burnt cork comes off readily. All you have to do is to apply plenty of soap and scrub vig orously over a bucket of water. I can “wash up” after the show quicker than a laboring man when lie goes home to supjtcr from the iron works or gas louse. A trace or burnt cork inside tlie ear is a song and dance man's profession al card. It will be recognized at any box office whc-rc they arc not 'turnin 'em away. Does burnt cork injure the complex ion? Goodness, no. look at mine. Nothing like it to keep the skin clear, soft and rosy. .

The colored Baptiste have rustled up subscriptions to the amount of about SSOO for their proposed church enterprise the past week. They had paid S6O on their church site themselves, snd as it only cost them S2OO they have the beginning of a fund for building purpoeas. If they can continue to raise $6 out of the public for every $1 of their own investment they should soon have a housa of wor ship.
