The Cowley Progress

Bert Marchant connected up the blacksmith shop yesterday with electric juice, next to The Progress printer, and now has one of the best equipped shops in the Basin. It all runs by electricity, except possibly the horseshoeing part of it and perhaps in time he’ll find a way to pull that stunt by power from the dynamo.

Dr. W. W.  Horsley is in receipt of a request from Robert Pyle, rose enthusiast, for a picture of the municipal rose garden in Lovell, the only one in Wyoming. This week the garden received a gift of 40 rose bushes from the Jackson & Perkins company of Newark, N. Y. The plants are new patented varieties that they want to experiment with and include the Joyous, Rochester, Rose Bampton, Pan American, Spun Gold, A. Grille, Miss America and Riveria.
