Owen Malone returned from Denver last Tuesday. The Crestone Eagle plant was moved to Del Norte last Monday. Regular meeting of Amethyst Rebekah Lodge next Monday evening. The high school students are rehears- ing a play to be given before vacation. We understand that Johnny O'Neil is now back in Iowa visiting relatives and friends. Lawrence & Williams, the hardware firm, has a new stove announcement this week in the CRESCENT. Social doings in Saguache seem to be at a standstill, a condition very seldom noticed at this season of the year. Tug Wilson was in town Tuesday on his way from Creeds to Bonanza, where he is looking after some.mining property, i Danny Vigil's father, a brotber of the late Mrs. John Lawrence, of San Luis, visited in Saguache several days last week. W. A Bronaugh, of Monte Vista, was in this vicinity Monday and tuesday looking for horses for the E,glish to use in South Africa. John W. Cook, county clerk elect, V. S. Wilson of the Miner and Win. H. i Coehran of the Eagle, all of Crcstone were in town Monday, having business at the cour~ house. Among those from Bonanza attending the after.election dance here Friday night we noticed W. E. Gardner, Dr. and Mrs. Kortright, Mrs. Craig, Herbert Ellis and wife and Mrs. Paul. Henry Braham and Roll Means are ar- ranging for an old fashioned shooting match at Villa Grove on Thanksgiving day. They will give 24 turkeys, 3 hogs and 1 beef to the best marksmen. J.L. Hurt's cattle outfit passed through town again Monday going to the Crested Butte country after the cows and young calves that were left there when they brought out their range cattle. Tom Noland has been appointed by ~ov. Orman as one of the three dele- gates at large from the state of Colorado to the National Live Stock association meeting to be held in Chicago in Dec. The Saguache Stockgrowers associa- tion will hold a meeting here next Sat- urday, at which time delegates will be selected to attend the meeting of the Na- tional association in Chicago Dec. 3rd. Clint Gray, HermaD and Fred Sohroe- dot,Carl Williams and IraColvin went to Bonanza this week where they expect to get work preparing the ground for a new mill that is to be erected is that sub- stantial camp. We would be pleased to have our friends in town, and also over the county assist us in giving all tim news happen- lugs. Call in and tell us or drop us a note of anything going oa ttmt would be of interest to our readers. Blanche O'Neil very pleasantly enter- tained a party of fourteen boys and girls, her school mates, last Friday evening. The time was spent in plsying games un- 11 o clock. Ice cake and til about ' cream, lemonade was served during the evening. The dance given at this phice last Friday night by the successful csndi. dates was well attended by not only the people of the town, but by many from other sections of the county, and all unite in saying that a good time was had. Eph Mitchell is in the turkey raising business. He borrowed a gobler from a kind hearted friend in town last spring, and a hen turkey from another friend, both of these friends being ladies, and we anticipate that he will have turkeys enough to supply all for Thanksgiving At this writin~ it looks as th(luMa the Indian summer weather enjoyed hy the people of this section of the country for the past two months, was at)out to change. There has been a very notice- able sinking of the temperature, and ialthough no snow has fallen as yet, the air seems to be charged with indications. Andrew Forbes while returning from the east a few days ago, where he went with a shipment of 350 lambs, stopped in 1 Pueblo long enough to purchase 50 high grade Shropsbire and Merino rams, which he now has on his home ranch 8 miles southeast of town. Having more that, tie needs now he offers 32 head for sale or will trade them for ewes. Assessor Alexander went to Denver on Sunday and returned home on Tuesday. While at the capital he attended a meet- ing of the state board of equalization, and by his persuasive statements he convinced the board timt the 10 per cent ~atse on the sssessmant in this county I was unjust anti the board voted re) re- l consider their action in ordering said but assist the bowels to act.

Mike Jordan is spending a few weeks in Denver. Sam Feast is advertising a cash clear- ing sale this week. The Presbyterian Guild will meet with Mrs. Boyd on Tuesday afternoon of next week. Mrs. L. W. Sharps, of Bonanza, was visiting friends in town a few days the past week. Dave Glasgow, who is now the occu- rant and owner of the Hice ranch, above Alder, is in town today. The Ladies Aid Society of the Metho- dist church will give a "Tea" at the home of Mrs. Means on Saturday afternoon. The Saguache County Bank will re- ceive subscriptions to the McKinley memorial fund. But 10 cents is expected from each one. T. M. Alexander has purchased uf Lee Fairbauks six lots in block B, Settle's addition just south of the Baptist church and parsonage, and he expects to build him a residence there this winter. A. Brewer returned last night from Denver. He has been away from Sa- guachc about four weeks and he looks as though he was glad to get back and also that his trip had done him good. Will Ham, Oscar Proffitt and the Allen boys were deer hunting on Four Mile from last Friday till Monday. It is probably unnecessary for them to make an affidavit that they did not break the game law. It is rumor(d that the Colorado Fuel and Iron company is after the iron and manganese mountains in the Cebola valley, Gunnison county, owned by R. W. Lewis and others. A large sum is said to have been offered but refused. Anna Ness and Tillie Bjorklund arriv- ed in town on Tuesday's stage, and im- mediately went down to the Johnson settlement. They belong to a mission society and will hold services at the Johnson school house every night until after Sunday. From their music cases we judge the services will be musi- cal, in part at least. It is reported that the democratic leaders in Saguacbe will endeavor to have Gee. Orman appoint a certain gentleman of this town to the position of water commissioner next season. We do not believe the one mentioned would ac. cept the job if offered him, for the reason that he is a Missouri raised Kentuckian and has no use for water except for bathing purposes. At the meeting of the Saguache band Monday evening a permanent organiza- tion was effectod and the following officers were elected: President, J. W. Beery; secretary, U. G. Rockw.ell; treas. Birt Clare; leader, O. B. Mack. J.W. Beery, W. C. Lockett and U. G. Rock- well were appointed on entertainment committee, C. L. Townsend was elected as property man and janitor. The boys will probably give another play about Ch ristmas. Pulpit Announcements. SAfiUACHE PUBLIC SCHOOL. We have fourteen pupils in the 8th grade, the largest number we have ever had for that grade. One has dropped out Edna Edwards, but her place was occupied by Curt Johnson, keeping the number up to14, and as none of them arc very poor they may all be ready for the county high school next fall. Dr. Melvin is giving the 8th grade lectures on physiology. He gives them )no lesson a week till all the important topics of that subject are discussed. On Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving all the school will give a Thanksgiving program in Miss Lo. k~ it's room, beginning at 2:30 o'clock or soon after. All parents and friends are invit- ed to hear our exercises. HlfiH SCHOOL NOTES. The High School has in preparation the laughable drama, "The Little Brown Jug," which will be given before the Ci~ristmas vacation. You will miss a treat if you fail to hear it. The library is growing more popular all the time. A number of books are taken out every day. ]'he following mounted animals have been purchased by the school and made a part of the zoological collection: Antelope, beaver, four coyotes (an old one and three young ones), two white quails, mountain sheep's head, mountain sheep's horns. We now have nearly 100 mounted specimens. The tenth grade are reading a series of biographies for opening exercises this week. Openiog exercises last week consisted of biographical sketch and selections from James Whiteomb Riley. Send in your specimens of ores, as we now have a new cabinet and plenty of room for display. The much needed black boards ar- rived aud were duly mounted. Our new flag was unfurled to tLe breeze for the first time on election day. We suppose that accounts Yor the "land slide." Hilda Fairbanks and Fannie Cochran were absent a part of the week on ac- count of sickness. We are indebted to A. L. Bahmr for ti~e following specimens: Copper ore, from Ketchican, Alaska. Native copper, from Copper River, Alas- ka. Gold ore, from Australia. Molyb- deJite, from state of Washington. The top price of the season was paid on the Den ver market yesterday for grass fat range steers. They were from Colo., shipped by the Montgomery Live Stock company. The average weight was 1,293 pounds and the price paid was$Lh0 a hundredweight. This price is 10 cents higlmr than the highest price paid here- refers on this market during the present year. When the question of shrinkage, exLra feed bills aud additional freight charges is considered, the price paid is [letter than that being paid for the same class in any of the aver marksts.--Re- publican.

A new rule has been adopted by the library commit!co as follows: Any responsible party not a member may borrow books from the library upon the payment of 25 cents for each book for two weeks or fraction thereof. Said borrowers shall be subject to all other rules as are members.
