Items From Leal (town south of Parshall)
A party of prospectors consisting of the four Messrs Bishop and Dr. S. B . McFarlaud of Longmont arrived at Paducah Lodge Monday, June 19th after an extended trip to the mining camp. Mr. W. W. Darling had his first auto ride this year, when he went to Mr . Langholen’s last Saturday .
Mr. Geo Mohr, of the Glen lnv Co. put 150 head of cattle on the range above Leal, last Friday. The grass is good and the cattle seem to be quite contented. Mr. Carroll is looking after them and is making his headquarters at Wades. The Scholl and Leal Post offices were honored recently, by visits from the Post Office inspector. He was very much pleased with the way in which the offices were operating. It was the first visit by any inspector to either office and the postmistresses were exceedingly proud. Mrs. J. Wade accompanied her husband on his mail trip Saturday, after which they went to Sulphur to see the new Ford Truck which is to be used on the Leal-Parshall Line.
On account of the large number have expressed interest in coming to hear the Singer Quartete from Denver on Monday evening, June 26, it was deemed advisable to hold the entertaining at the local opera house instead of the church as first announced. This is not Fraser’s “happening” but belongs to all of us: Kremmling, Sulphur, Granby, Tabernash and Fraser and arrangement will be made that all may enjoy the finest entertainment.
