Forest Supervisor, to a stock man of North Park requesting the en forcement of the state laws in regard to the putting out of bulls and the salting of cattle on public range, Medicine, Bow Colo. National Forest. Estes Park, Colo., Feb. 17 1908 Dear Sis: — In reply to your letter of Feb. 12. This letter pleases me very much as I am glad to know there are some of the stockmen who fully realize the impor tance of a full compliance with the state laws. It is my inteutiou that the state laws in regard to bulls and salting of cattle shall be absolut'.y enforced. If there are any cattlemen in your part of the country who are in need of bulls I would suggest that they get them now or suit their convenience so that they will have them when they get ready to turn their cattle onto the public range. The law is very specific in this matter and a man is layiug himself subject to a fine of $lO for evry day during which he fails to comply with the laws. The stockmen in your section of the country have known this la>v for years and have been under the forest manage ment for tw’o years at least, therefore, they need no leniency. It is better to buy early than to spend the money at the rate of $lO. a day for fines in each case. Very sincerely 11. N. Wheeler Forest Su|»ervisor. WALDEN, COLORADO, MARCH 5, 1908. SPRING TERM OF COURT OPENS The March term of the District Court in Fort Collins opened Tuesday, March 8, with Judge Gamble presiding, when cases were called and set for hearing. The petit jury is summoned to appear next Monday, and March 4,0, and 10 and May 8 have been set as days for hearing petitions for naturalization. The docket shows no criminal cases from the Park, this being a prosperous and peaceable community. The civil cases from North Park are; Adjudication of Priorities of right to use of water in Water district No. 47; Petition of W. Miller Mosmau et al; Ad judication of Priorities of right to use of water in Water district No. 40 ion of the Wolfer Ditch Co.; both be fore Paul W. Lee. Referee. These are the ditch claims for which Mr. Lee heard testimony in Walden the first week in July last summer. They come early in the civil docket and should be decided and notices of the decrees entered, sent out soon after the criminal cases are dis posed of: just when, the court himself does not precisely know, but pretty surely some time this spring. The docket shows further from the Park two suits by the Board of County Commissioners against Andrew’ Norell for injunction, a suit for injunction by Reid Matthew’s and Annie C. Matthews against W. O. Mosman and W. Miller Mosnian, an action for damages by Willis Briggs against Stephen Harl, Harry Carjienter and Andrew Norell. FELL INTO A FORTY FOOT HARD WATER WELL. Yesterday afternoon Mr. Rosenbaum of the firm of Hunter and Rosenbaum, Cream Merchants, w-as around the barn corrals of their ranch when he heard a noise like an earthquake On investiga tion the only hole in the crust he could find was the well and therefrom issued the noise, a bittsr wailing bleat. He lowered the bucket and with great difficulty succeeded in rescuing a sheep w’hich apparently had fallen in by acci dent and his hired man. Whether the man w*as after the sheep or the sheep was after the man when the accident happened neither has yet stated. Both escaped without serious injury, although the w’ater in that well is quite ‘hard. Spicer Spiels Money talks, —but about all it ever says is “Good Bye.” Spring may be here but we do not know that it is. The party who first saw it came from Waldeu and is the same man who started the story that the side hill animals were out already on Ara: ahoe Peak Ben Singer, a cow boy of more than local fame, is laid up with a dislocated knee. As he is naturaly active and in industrious it is particulary trying on on him to be confined to the house. Mr. Jay Monroe of Laramie is visiting his parents of Spicer. Quilting parties are now in vogue at Spicer and many pleaseut afternoons are thus sjient. We attended liist week a dance given at the home of Mr. und Mrs Joseph Shearer of Rand. In justice to the lad ies —for it was due to their efforts, we must say that a better conducted and a more enjoyable affair has never occured in the south end. The floor manager's, Ladies all, ruled with au iron hand and positively forbid all encores and other demonstrations. The ladies in choosing their jiartners used n neat, trick where soever they learned it. One sees a girl approaching with her eyes directed full upon him, a Hush of pleasure steals over his countenance. He feel the thrill of satisfaction that comes only from sue os lie lowers his eyes so as not to seem to eager. But lo! she swerves aside and smilingly leads away that despisable fellow next whom you never did like. Of course you never notice it at all hut w histle a tune and before you have fin ished it. you suddeniy inquire of the fel low sitting next how his cattle are wintering, forgeting the while that this was the third time he had asked him that same question. However the dance was a big success and everybody went away feeling gratefull toward the ladies and particulary toward the host and hostess. Fully 75 people attended, among then being many from a distance. Teachers Examination. The regular county teachers examina tion will be held in Walden. March 19th and 20th. under the direction of Mrs Wulter Suuir. COMPAMY RE ORGANIZED Walden Mercantile changes owners af ter six years. The association consists of G. W. Linger, Owen S.

The work of taking inventory of the present stock and shipping in new’ stock will take some little time but iu the course of a few w*eeks with good condi tions for freighting, considering the time of the year, the new goods will be on the shelves and Mr. Arnes and his assistants prepared to furnish the trade completely. Laramie River Items. While burning brush near his barn last Friday after-noon Mr, Smith’s barn caught on fire and burnt his hay barley black smith shop and about a dozen set ting hens, but he managed to save all of his farm implements, harness and etc. All of the neighborhood helped carry water from the river, but they could not quench the awful flames untill the barn had burned to t he ground.
