Of 146 instruments filed for record during November, 54 were location cer- tificates. Forty of the claims located were in Manitou district, the balance in Kerber creek, Grestone, Music, Blake and Ford creek districts, Manitou dis- trict is in the northeastern corner of the county near Alder. President Roosevelt's first message was Sheriff Williams on Monday sold at read to congress Tuesday. It is printed trustee's sale the NW~ of sec. 30, town- in full on another page of this issue of ship 41, range 9, formerly the property of the CRESCENT. Wm. M. Asher.

The house of representatives organ- ized with the election of Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, as speaker. The commissioners on Monday fixed the tax levies for the year. The county levy is 12 mills as against 19~/mills last year. The state levy is the same as last year, 4 1-10 mills, Some of the school districts reduced their levies, and others kept them up to the limit. The levies as made appear in another column of this paper. A central telephone exchange in Sa- guache has not yet materialized. At the time of going to press last week it look- ~1 sa though one, if not two, switch boards would be put in here within a few days, as the wires running into town are overloaded with phones, but the mat. ter has again been postponed until some future time. One of our citizens proposes that the town sink a wellin the center of Fourth street and San Juan avenue, and erect thereon a large substantial wind mill and a big tank, the water from which could be piped to all the business houesl on the street. The plan is probably feasible, and it would no doubt be very convenient, especially in case of fire, and also as a water supply for a springling cart. Walter Juan Davis writing of the trip of the Colorado delegates to the live stock convention, in the Denver Post, has the following to say of one of theSa- guache delegates: "Thomas Noland of Saguache county, delegate at large ap- pointed by Governor Orman, was a live- ly member of the party. Governor Or- man did a good work in appointing Mr. Noland. He is not only a typical cattle. man and a thorough-going but he is a good fellow besides." The president has signed an orde: bringing the rural free delivery service into the classified civil service. It acts immediately, so far as the 250 clerks, special agents and route inspectors are concerned, but provides that until regu- lations shall be formulated for the ap- pointment of rn ral carriers the 5,000 em- ployee shall not be treated as within the classified service. Rural carriers will not have to undergo a scholastic examt- nation. Appointments of them will be made from persons residents of the neighborhood, wholly for fitness and ir- respective of political ()r wrsoual consid- erations. of appeals, and as usual it reversed the lower court, and Asher either had to pay the debt the second time or lose his land. The county treasurer has received the following communication regarding the collection of the military poll tax: Adjutant General's Office, Denver, Colo. Nov. 29, 1901. To the County Treasurer, Dear Sir:- On account of the very depleted condi- tion of the military poll fund, and the fact that a number ot counties in the state have been dere}ict in the collec- tion of this tax, the adjutant general has deemed it necessary to have the attor- ney general of the state render an opin- Ion regarding the collection of these back taxes, and that opinion, now on file in this office is to the effect that it is the duty of county treasurers to see to it that the same is collected, as there is a balance running up into the thousands of,dollars due the poll tax fund for back taxes. In this connection I beg to re- spectfully call your attention to the ses- sion laws of 1891, page 345, section 1. Trusting that this matter will have your prompt attention, I am, very truly yours Gee. F. Gardner, Adjutant General. Deeds Filed For Record. Nov. 26. David G.

The following cases were disposed of on Tuesday, December 3rd. The people vs Argo Taylor, water com. dist. No. '26. Two informations contain- ing four counts were filed by the district attorney, charging defendant with mal- feasance in office, in that he had given a ditch more water than it was entitled to and that he had nat attended to the headgate of said ditch a+ he is required After reading the c,mmunication re- by law to do. coined last week from "()~m Interested," and carefully considering the same, we have decided not to publish it, especially tm the deed claimed to have t)een com- mitted was probably done by irresponsi- ble partie~, and we fail to see how its publication could bouetit any one, not even the writer. On the other hand it might have a tendency to stir up a strife between the sheepmeu and cattlemen of the county that we in no wise want to be a party to. There is almost un harmony between the people who arson- gaged in these two leading industries of this section of the valley, and with the sad experience in other counties of the state before us, we believe that we are justified in refusing to publish anything that might have a tendency to disturb present condition~.

"I suffered for years with a bronchial or lung trouble and tried various reme- dies but did not obtain permanent relief until I commenced using One Minute Cough Cure," writes Roy. James Kirk- man, evangelist of Belle River, Ill. "I have no hesitation in recommending it to all sufferers from maladies of this kind." One Minute Cough Cure affords immediate relief for coughs, colds and all kinds of throat and lung troubles. For croup it is unequalled. Absolutely safe. Very pleasant to take, never fails and is really a favorite with the children. They like it. Saguache Pharmacy. Teacher's ~xamination.

The first strong and full of ginger, the second flabby, weak and tired out before he begins. The feeding makes the difference. Children are not alike either. One is rosy, brlght-eyed, ful' of life and laughter, another is pale, weak and dull. The feed- mg again is responsible. Sickly children need special feeding. They don't"feeltheir oats". Scott's Emulsion adds just the right richness to their diet. It is like grain to the horse. The child gets new appetite and strong digestion. Scott's Emulsion is more than food. It is a strong medicine. It rouses up dull children, puts new flesh on thin ones and red blood into pale ones. It makes children grow. Scott's Emulsion makes ordi- nary food do its duty.
