A Large and Successful Enterprise * .
The publisher accompanied a party of in
spection to the Meeker irrigation ditch on
Sunday afternoon , and with others was sur
prised at the magnitude of the work and at
the great obstacles successfully overcome by
Mr. Meeker in the construction of bis irriga
ting canal , especially at what are known as
the "narrows , " where almost insuperable
difficulties were encountered and finally and
substantially solved , by dint of hard work ,
skill and keeping eternally at it. The ditch
was in fine running order , everything work
ing smoothly , with about two feet of water
in it. There are twenty-two miles now com
pleted , extending from the junction of the
Republican and Frenchman rivers east to a
point somewhat beyond the Pickens farm
southeast of the city. A pretty feature of
this great enterprise is the numerous small
lakes which dot the course of the ditch , num
bering in all over twenty. They are not alone
valuable as storage reservoirs but as fish
ponds they have inestimable worth , and
should be stocked with proper species of the
finny tribe at once. Mr. Meeker is entitled
to great credit for his ceaseless efforts to
make the project a success , and it is to be
hoped that he may reap a bountiful harvest
Republican club headquarters have been
established in the Meeker block , upstairs ;
and the star spangled banner is still there.

Mr. Samuel E. Gallon and Miss Dora E.
Beyrer. The ceremony was performed at
the residence of Dr. A. P. Welles , being wit
nessed only by relations of the contracting
parties and a few friends. The groom is
well known in railroad circles as one of the
Burlington's most capable and trusted con
ductors. The bride is one of McCook's most
estimable daughters. Widely known for de
voted affection for her brothers. They were
handsomely remembered by many friends
and well wishers. The happy couple left enC
C , the same afternoon , for the east , where
they will pass an extended honeymoon ; at
the conclusion of which they will take up

May their trips through life be smooth , free
from worry and care , and may they have a
head of lime order to prosperity.
