Several days ago Officer Wilson discovered
that Charles Harper, a colored man, had b-en
trying to sell a set of harness almost new to
Charles Potee, a colored man residing lour
miles east ot town. The fact that the othier
suspected that they bud been stolen was men
tioned In yesterday's Gt uux-Ilk.i'uaLic, anil his
suspicion proved correct. Mr. Will Foos
came to him and described a let ol harness
tallying precisely with this one which was
stolen Irom his staole on Kt High street a
couple ot wc-ks ago. The oflicersoon caught
sight ot h's man, and bagged bira shortly af
ter 2 o'clock at Burnett's grocery. On the
way to tie jail he said he had owned a horse
a couple of years ago and had kept the bar
neys ever sine?. When trying to sell them to
Potee be had said that be had just traded
horses and the harness did not fit his new
horse. He was jailed on a charge of petit
larceny, the harness being valued nt

One year atro we had a family picnic on
Uncle Dmiel Young's farm, along Mad Hiver,
In the State of Ohio; this year a few of us
(F.rfu, I.ucllc, Joslc, Warnle, little Bessie, Mrs.
T, nml myself, and Mr, Carey, attendant,) had
ooc almost in the heart cf the Hocky Motir
tiilns, In the Hlnte of Colorado, near the bead
waters of Short Creek, at an elevation of at
least 7,000 feet above the sea level. The con
trast between the two places is almost as great
as can well be Imagined. The first was on
a level bottom, with no mountains In view,
and no outlook Id oue direction over a
mile or two in extent. The fecond was mch
n ratified elocution a to perceptibly ailed
respiration in one not accustomed to such al
titudes; while the real Rocky Mountains, ol
wbieli we bad studied and read ever sluce
our school days, looked d'.wn upon us from
three side with nil their awful grandeur.
We ascended Ihe gulch, or canon, tor over
n mile with a carriage and spring wngon, over
n narrow, rou,;li and tortuous road, unused
to travel except by ox teams thrrughbushis,
over rocks, and along the creek bed, which
was dangerous In the extreme. Hut we went
and returned without meeting with the
slightest nicident. Last year six ladies
camped in this same gulch for a whoh) week,
by themselves, to gither and put up wild
goiac-berties, which are found here in great
ab indince. Our trip wa too early to gather
any ol this delklons fruit on this excursion,
nml if v,'c calculated to gel any it terminated
in rather a "wild-goose chase."
But of the scenery the eye never tired
Up, up, up as high as inquisitive vision cared
to climb there was always something new to
attract the attention, while out through tho
unobstructed opening, by which we came,
still other mountains set bourds to magnifi
cent lutidfcipes at the distance of from 30 to
100 miles or more. The gulch was at no
place over 50 yards h wlcsh, through which
rurhed a stream of pure mountain water,
roaming aud leaping in lis descent to the
philn, while the beautl'ul sipen fluttered its
silver leatcs in the air above as much as to
bid it God's speed on its rffresbirg and I fe
givmir mirelon to the thirsty vsle beliw.
If re we tient Our mid-day meal, upon a
brond rmk, oot the note ot.a single bird was
hctrd, aud not one animated inhabitant ol

quito intruded his Initrlinent bill to disturb
or annoy us.
Rising abruptly from toe creek on one
lide God's own solid masoVry was piled up
higher than old Cheop, and grander in its
unpolished walls lhan l the rtot.es ever

Again and agiiln the que-y would force

II you would ask the questloi loud euoiigh
Ihe echo would eotue back: "What for?"
So strange were your matvbi9s surround
lnu it mattered not in what three lion you
turned, you nciild see suth an endless va
riety that it teemed as il nature was putting
to ihe picture (finished thousands and per
haps nul ions of years ago) some new and

Aud as I looked and wondered and thought

but they draw their highes' and best Inspira

God, and d es uo iujus ice to man, to exclaim
with the P nlmist, in the preeeiae ot ll is
mightiest pieces ol handiwork: "How won
derful are tby works, O Lord, in wisdom bast
thou made them all'"
And any one ho can live and breathe in
tuch sublime presence of the Infinite, without
believing there is a God, aud feeling
that he is b.-oiljht face to face
with the prestnteof the Almighty, is to be
pried indeed. Vox he his not Ihe eye of an

soul ot a man to comprehend aud worship

silence, to say: "Before the mountains were
brought forth, or ner thou hadsl formed the
enrth and the world, even from ererlasliug to
