The New Linden Hotel

The commercial fraternity who frequent Fort Collins have as a class selected the Linden hotel as their headquarters, and consequently it is the leading commercial hostelry in the city. The hotel was established fifteen years ago and consists of a substantial building of three stories containing forty bedrooms and three large sample rooms. All the rooms have been recently refurnished and are large, bright airy and scrupulously clean. The hotel is exceptionally well managed and guests are always assured of prompt and polite attention. Considering the conveniences and style the terms are most reasonable, being from $2.00 to $3.00 per day. The proprietor, Mr. J. B. Beals, is deservedly a popular and highly respected citizen. He contemplates making extensive alterations and improvements, including the introduction of steam heat; and the Linden is thus certain always to obtain a very liberal share of patronage. Mr. Beals takes a deep interest in the city and is ever ready to support any legitimate enterprise having for its object the advancement of the city and the betterment of the citizens.

Secord, for the past 11 years. Mr. Secord is a wholesale and retail dealer in books, stationery and office supplies, as also a dealer in silverware, cut glass, musical goods, sporting goods, periodicals, fishing tackle, etc. On entering his store one cannot fail being impressed by the gorgeous display of merchandise, the activity of numerous clerks, and the symptoms of undoubted popularity and prosperity of this establishment.
