Mr. Emmons acted as secratary of the business meeting and was really the leading spirit, as it is to a great extent his money that is making the mare go. He spent the day examining the town and getting pointers on the prospects for business in the Park and seemed to be well pleased at the outlook.

If con tractors and working force can be found Mr. Emmons assures us we can go to Denver next January on our annual jaunt to the stock show without going the stage route through purgatory for a mile. There won’t very many of us get angry over that. In fa 3t at the ban quet Friday evening everybody seemed quite pleased. What banquet? Why the one the business men of Walden gave in honor of Mr. Emmons and his rail road enterprise. The affair was a suc cess from all points of view. Every body was pleased at everything from the decorations to the Davis family’s yarns, and everybody was delighted to feast the guests who honored us with their society. Besides the principal guest of the evening and the business men resi dent here, Mr. Milner of Steamboat Springs was with us and several promin ent ranchmen of the park joined in the festivities. It would have been a source of much gratification to the townsmen if more of them had come. The party broke up early and happy with the good wish expressed "May the Lb H. P. & P. get as long as the U. P. and as prosperous as the New York Cen tral. There is every reason to beleivo the second half of the wish may be realized in a very few years. There are two sandbanks on the east side with millions of dollars in them for a man with capital and brains to exploit them. The Medicine Bow range is a good copper prospect from end to end. WALDEN, COLORADO, FEBRUARY 20, 1908. The Saw tooth range brought 3,000 men to North Park before the indians had left. The Independance mountain pla cers brought as many more. There are promising prospects bearing gold, silver, and especially copper all along the Park Range, ns yet not sufficiently developed to show their full value, but at grass evidently worth working. There are in two * laces at opposite ends of the Park veritable mountains of a high grade iron ore, and all the space between is a territory 30 by 50 miles; every acre as good farm land as ever lay out of doors in a north temperate climate and all underlain with a coal deposit so vast in area and thickness you would call us a liar if we were to state all that is a mat ter of absolute knowledge about it. Yes the stockholders of the L. H. P. A P. and any other rai Iroad that may build in here are going to get rich. If they keep their stock they can’t help it.

John Long, Cryer. “Free head cheese, apples and hard cider for all.” Charley has sold and moved many times since but the above authenticated on good authorty as the first since he be came the head of a family. The latest (tiove was well advertised in the last wieks paper, and shows a considerable c bangiein -the-Uet tendency to quit life of the back woods for a more laborious status. Charley has the best wishes of all his friends in his, we predict, temporary retirement from assisting in the labor of building up the Great West, and we all hope and ex pect to see him smiling and enterprising as ever among us again before long, with a stout heart in his bosom and a sturdy shoulder to the wheel. N. P. A. C. Gives Smoker. That the town of Walden is not dead yet has been proved by the number of banquets and entertainments given. Tuesday evening the members of the athletic olub gave a smokeless smoker followed by a banquet at the Gresham Hotel. It was an impromptu affair but there was a very good attendance and all enjoyed both the smoker and banquet to the utmost. A number of boxing matches, handball games,etc., were en joyed at the smoker. On account of the ladies function at the Park Hotel the same evening a num ber of our most athletic members were not present, having to stay home with the children. This shows that the women have a large influence in Wal den anyhow’. Scrap in Podunk. Chars. Baker and J. H. McCasland had trouble last Saturday. Fred Baker had been feeding out some hay for Mr. McCasland and the latter had disputed the amount of his bill. He sent for Mr. Baker and after some w’ords the later and both the better and the other half of the McCasland family exchanged souvenirs. Mr. Baker was in town afterwards with his marks in evidence upon him. He pointed with pride to the impression he had created in podunk although admiting he hur ried home after the meeting to which Mr. McCaslaud had euvited him the first instance to settle liis sons bill for feeding; having received nothing for the young mans labor but a violent attack.

Thomas Hogan, Supervisor* (Ist Pub. Feb. 20 ; last Pub March 12 ) GRAND BANQUET Ladies of Walden Sur passed Men in this Line. Woman jealous of Man*s Suc cess, Try it them selves* The w’ives and sw T eetheart9 of the pro minent citizens of Walden met in the parlors of the Park Hotel Tuesday even ing for the purpose of finishing the dis cussion begun by their other halves last. Friday evening in regard to making plans for a new railroad into the Park. The men it seems, being Just a little en-, vious of woman’s vast foresight, clear, thinking, and ability to calculate the number of rails needed to feaok our tow n, thought in order to receive the whole credit unto themselves they would make theirs a meeting strictly for men; so distinctly masculine did this meeting prove to be, both in selection of edibles and the serving of toasts, that the ladiea were glad to be allowed to form the final decisions, plans and regu lations for the new railroad fronrtfteir own unpolluted inte lleots. Our citizens will be glad to learn that Walden is to have this railroad some time soon; it may take a year to do the necessary grading, but it will surely be done. From Walden west end south the Larimer and Routt County. Railway wiUbuild via the Riach Coal Bfenk into Mi# 1 Routt County coal flelds,'t notice across the Isthmus of Panama to the Ar gentine Diamond Fields. It is not necessary to go into detail a bout the following plans, but to show that the railroad will be perfectly safe and sound consider the provisions stat* ed below: 1; It was agreed to use none but the best cedar ties, to be places three feet apart and smeared with tar at both ends 2; The rails are to be heavy enough so that the Mayor of Walden and hit w r hole suite might rideat the same time without leaving flat places in them. 3: The curves must all be constucted ip a parabolic form, like the path of a com et, so that when the train is late, the en gineer shall not need to slack liM r speed to get by them. 4: No beer, fermented grapejuice, or oth er article of intoxicating character may under any circumstances be.hauled over the company's tracks 5: And, last but not least, all cars must be electric lighted, steam heated, vesfci buled and leave Walden daily except Sunday, unless there is a bargain .sale going on in Denver which the ladies de sire to attend. After the business meeting the ladies adjourned to the dining room to refresh their wearied intellects. It w’as here that man once more rebei ved recognition from the finicky fair sex: the table he set was excellent, the service elegant. The first course consisted of a**'whele kook of information about men: men as women see them. Each lady supplied a verse; each verse was a gem; one of the more flattering ones runs as follows; “Men are somewhat like a sausage. Very smooth upon the skins, But you can never tell exactly How much hog there is wi.hin.” Others were very good but for fear o( making the men conceited, it is better not to quote them. After a few hours of solid enjoyment the ladies roturned to the parlor for ent ertainment. Mesdames .Hunter and Fliniau gave a'beautiful piano duet and after a few recitations this meeting, tli4 most interesting gathering of jwomen ev er assembled in Walden dispersed tojgo home and see how father was getting qn with the babies. The new woman has come to be with you aiway. One of Em. P. S. It was pleasant to know that the men’s commercial club of Walben took such great interest in us and may they treat us as their equals hereafter, with out having to be showed. Thomas Don returned to Walden from Fort Collins Tuesday. He says he it now-ready to'challenge any wrestler -in North Parkas he has been training most of time he has been out. ' Church Social a Success. . The entertainment given last Friday evening under the auspices of the Ladies Aid Society proved a succoss, although a business meeting and banquet were taking place is town about the same time. The gentlemen singers, however, who .attended the other functions, were considerate enough to accomodate the people by aviating the other quartet be tween times. The recitations and music were enjoyed by all, and several who did not take anpper paid the price for the supper and more too, showing their generosity in a worthy cause.
