Colorado Weekly Chieftain, June 18, 1868 D. J. Hayden & Co., formerly merchants of Pueblo, advertise this week the Tabeguache Mills on the Upper Huerfano.  These mills are now in fine condition and turn out the best flour.

Colorado Weekly Chieftain, June 18, 1868 Horse Thieving. - Mr. Wm. Chapman of Tabeguache Mills (on the Upper Huerfano) informs us that on the night of the 9th inst., two horses were stolen from Mr. A. T. Seabring, of Badito.  He tracked them to the head of the canon on the Purgatoire, where the thieves had fallen in company with about twenty others.  Mr. S. was warned that the rogues were well armed and determined to defend themselves against any and all persons, and that it would be fatal to him and the man accompanying him should he overtake them.  The pursuit was abandoned in consequence.  We hope the time is not far distant when these pests to society shall be exterminated or at least when a man may with some degree of safety to his life pursue a thief.

Colorado Weekly Chieftain, July 9, 1868 Wm. Chapman, of the firm of D. J. Hayden & Co., of the Tabeguache Mills, on the Upper Huerfano, has sent us a sack of excellent flour, manufactured at their mills.  We have no hesitation in pronouncing their flour fully equal in quality to the very best made in the Territory.

Colorado Weekly Chieftain, July 30, 1868 Messrs. D. J. Hayden & Co., at their Tabeguache Mills, on the upper Huerfano, are driving a lively business, making a quality of flour which cannot be excelled in the Territory.
