CANoN CITY, COM., Sept. 2, 1882.
It is impossible in a single letter
to describe the scenery of the
Arkansas Valley from Leadville
to Canop Qjy, a distance of 130
miles. Four years #gp J. tfYv=
eled it by stage, and I thoughk
the road one of the wildest and
most picturesque I had ever passed
over. It was a little earlier in
the spon than this, and that
year there wpa ??ph R9Pa p ypW
in the mountains than ther,e, is
now. All day long the snow-cov
ered peaks of the Sagnach range,
which constitutes the great con
tinept i divide, loomed up before
ne, towering Jpwvp Op y*lley on
the right, and 1?,NQ feet abosp
the level of the sea. Mounts El.
bert and Masive and Harvard,
Princeton, and Yale are the best
known polf;, k}6 there are others
equally imposiig. .e pg,gp pp
the east was also snow-espped,
and much of the way so near the
river that, its granite crags seem
ed almost to overhang the stream.
Sometimes the roi lies down
near the Arkansas, whose bright,
clear waters dash over the boul
ders on its bottom or curl in
graceful eddies arognd some
curve. Again the road ascends
the bank, the six strong horses
straining every muscle to haul the
heavy coach up the rocky steep,
and then you look down 500 feet
to see tbe river surging and rag
ing leaping from~ le4ge to ledge,
and dashing against, the sides of
the rocky canon. Occasionally
the road brought -up upon a
broad level plateau, bounded on
tbe east by the canon-of tbe river,
which flows hundreds of feet below
at, the very foot of the mountains,
and extending away for miles to
the west and south. This was
once the bed of the Arkansas,
which, in olden times, spread out
here into a broad lake before it
cut its present channel through
the rocks. AL places the river
flows up close to the foot-hills of
the mais-range. and then the road
which follows is extremely hilly
and winding.
But now the iron horse has
found his way up this valley and
all this scenery is as accessible as
that of the Hudson River or the
White Monut.ains, though I some.
times think the old stage furnishes
the most exciting and enjoyable
means of getting over these
mountains and up aind down the
valleys. I never enjoyed any rail
way ride and never expect to en
joy one as much as I did the stage
ride from Black Hawk to Central
City in 1875, passing over the
mountain doan which Nellie
Grant made her famous drive
shortly before and over the hair
raising road which started pour
old Horace Greely in 1869. But
no regular stage runs over this
route now, because the railway
has crept up here, too. There is
no more striking.evidence of tbe
prosperity and enterprise of Col
orado than. the rapidity with
which narrow gauge railroads are
built into the Rocky Mountains.
Tbe Denver, South Park and Pa
eifia road zig zags up the South
Platte canon and over the pass
into the South Park on grades
that no engineer could have dared
to suggest ten years ago. Scarcely
less daring has been the engineer
ing of.the Denver and Rio Grande
road over the La Veta pass of the
Sangre de Chr:sto range into the
ralley of the Rio Grande River.
More wondertul than either in its
aonception and execution has
Opp th construction of the Ar
j*ups Valley Railrag rogp tg
place throygh the goyal fegs,
s canon almost as grand in its
proportions and more inaccessible
than that of the Colorado. This
Royal George, through which the
Arkansas River cuts its way to
t4s plips, is indeed a seven days
wonder. The fantastipformso whick
the red granite assumes, the over
hanging crags, the almost per
pendicular walls, the sudden turns
jp t4A *tream which shut out the
listant view in aui directiQpp 4P0
iave the traveler In a great well
-all these might be described,
but must be' seen to be appre
:iated.
On the road from Leadville we
pass the Twin Lakes, always a

iubterranean lake covered with

2n the ppll i#, or lig lpt yp p

which produced thirty or forty
bushels to the acre. If any one
will take the troubie to dig a bole

tastes as if fresh, and is evidently
mot stagnant. Yet these fish are
yeless and scalsless-similar -to
those found in caves.

is a fitting-out point for L,ead
rle, but tbe advent of the rail
way took much of this trade away,
bough it is still a supply point
for Silver Cliff and some other
points in that direction. It is
listinctively Southern with Mexi
:an peculiarities. Many of its
ouses are of adobe, one story
ih and altogether it is not a
rery imposing or prepossessing
ppearing pjace. But it has a.
ne climate, and instead of b>eing
urrounded by mines is in the
midst of the grazing or stock
raising region. Of ibhis industry
I will giv you iiuuethinig in ruy

The welfare of each .one is so
connected with the welfare of all
that no absolute independence is
possible. Re who fancies that
simply to mind his own business,
and let otheris alone, is all that is
due to -himself or them, makes a
grievous mistake, for which in
his future experisace he will
have to pay-the penalty.

'Our esteemed cotemporaries F

it is, we believe, Prof. uxley

According to the Winnsboro' C

and leave it. swinging in mid air, h<
scorned by th6 high, beyond the ti

prints this, which appeared in tbe

yesterday :
'It must not be fo'rgott,an that pl

This declares all sacred and pro- ft

'a moral and intellectual move- ai

never 4one j4 pge hIt of good, gentle
men of the jury. I don't believe b,
is no doctor, no way. There is doe
tore as is - doctors sure enough, bn
this man don't earn his money ; ani
if you send for hiap, a Mrs. Saral
4!kijsou did, for a negro boy as wa
worth $4,000 ho just kills him am
wants pay for it,'
'I don't/' thundered the doctor.
'D)id you cure him?'.asked Peter
with the low accents of a judge witi
a black cap on.
The 4qgtor was slent, and Pete
proceeded:
'As I was sayin', gentlemen of th
jury, we farmers, when we sell on
cotton, has got to give vally for-th~
money we ask, and doctors ain't non
too good to he put to the same rule
And I don't believe this Sam Roystoi
is no doctor, no how.'
The physician again put in his oar
with 'Look at my diploma if yot
think I am no doctor.'
'His diploma!l' exclaimed the ne,
fledged orator, with great contempt
'His diploma ! Gentlemen, that is
big word for printed sheepskins, anm
it didn't make no doctor of the she
as first e.wore it, nor does it of the
man as now carries it, and I p'int on
to .ye that ho ain't no doctor at all.'
The man of medicine was now in
fury, .and screamed out, 'Ask my pa
tients if I am not a doctor!l'
'I asked my wife,' retorted Peter
'au' she said as how she thought yot
wasn't.'
'Ask my other patients,' said Dr
Royason.
This seemed to be the straw tha
broke the camel's back, for Peter re
plied with a look and toue of unut
terable sadness :
'That is a hard-.sayin', gentlemen c
the jury, and one that requires me t,
die or to have powers as I'v bearn tel
ceased to be exercised since the Apos
tles. Does he expect me to bring th
Angel of Gabriel down to toot hi
horn before the time and cry aloud
'Awake ye dead, and tell this cor
and jury your opinion of Royston'
practice ?' Am I to go to the tomn1
and say to uam as is at last at rest frot
physic and doctor bills, 'Git up herE
you, and state if you died anaturi
death, or was hurricd up some b;
-doctors?' He says afk h -,atienta
and, gentlemen of the jury, they ar

her funeral was spp'inted, and hr"

Where is that baby gal of Hsrry Sfe-$

'Gentlemen of the jury, he has eat .

Here the applause made the spek
sit down in great confusion, and i:
spite of a logical restatement of the
ease by Senator Toombs. the doctor
lost and Peter Bennett won.

CULTIVATZ A SwsET Vo!c. -
There is no power of love soa
to get and keep as a kind voice.
A kind hand is deaf and dumb.
It may be rough in flesh and
blood, yet do the work of a soft
heart, apd.do it with a soft touch.
But there is no one thing that
love so mnch needs as a-sweet ,
voice to tell what it mes a
and feels, and it is b : to
get it and keep it in the Iitsb
tone. One must start in youth,
anid be on the watch night
and day, at work and play,
to got and keep a voica that
shall speak .at all times the -
thought of a kind heart. Bat this
is the time when a sharp voice is
most apt .to be got. You often
hear boys and girls say words at
play with a quick sharp tone, as if
it were the snap of a whip. Whemd
one of them gets vexed you wil
bear a voice that sounds as if ts
were made up of a snarl, a whine
and a bark. Such a voice often
'speaks worse than the heart feels.1
It shows more ill-will in the tone
than in the words. It is often in ..
mirth that one getseavoice ora,
tone that is sharp, and sticks to
him through life, and stirs up ill
will and grief, tnd falls like a drop
of gall on the sweet joys at home.
Such as these get a sharp bome
voice for use and keep their best
voice for those they meet else
where, just as they would save
their best cakes and pies for
guests and all theiu soar food for -
their own board. I would say to
all boys and girls, 'Use your ~
guests voice at home.' Watch it
by day as a pearl of great price,
for it will be worth more to you in
the days to come tban the best '
pearl hid in the sea. A kind
voice is a lark's song to a hearth
and home. It is to the heart' what
light is to the eye.
