Carrying a super* band and grand j
augmented orchestra of 10 people,
all special scenery and a first-class
acting company ofladies and gentle
men. It is evident that nothing has
been left undone to make this the
grandest triumph o f all modern
dramas. Free band concert at noon
each day, displaying more wea j th
and grandeur than '^ er before at _

A Year to be Proud of.
Pullman has no complaints to
offer over the treatment accorded
her and her citizens by the departed
1904- It has been a year of pros
perity and of great material advance
ment, and everywhere the hand of
progress has left its mark.
Two modern brick business blocks
have been completed during the
year, a third enlarged and made in
to a two-story structure and the
foundation laid for a fourth.
A $12,000 church edifice has been
carried well along towards comple
tion, and not less than $100,000 ex
pended in new residences, some fifty
having been erected or being now
in progress of erection.
In the way of municipal improve
ment, we have the completed sewer
system, the many additions to the j
water system and the mile or so of j
Our people have during the
twelve-month, come into possession
of two magnificent city parks, the
one of about 15 acres of natural
grove, through popular subscrip
tion and donation, the othjr,
Reaney's park, of two blocks in the
heart of the city, covered with a
: I planted grove, by purchase author
■ iz«cl by vote of tije citizens.
■ j The property owners nave vied
with one another in the improve
ment of residence property, and
with thousands of square yards ol
fresh paint, new fences, well grassed
lawns and growing trees, the spirit
of the times has been manifest.
Neither calamity nor disaster has '
visited us as a people, and the new
year is entered upon with the im
petus and enthusiasm gained
through a departing year of profit.
Here's to 1905: may the realiza- \
tion prove as brilliant as the pros

The Growth of a City.
The Colfax Gazette quite prop
erly announces that the receipts of
the post office are always a good
indication of the run of a city's A
business, and then quotes figures,
that show that the county seat post
office has increased its receipts dur
ing the year by $425.90, the 1903
figures being $10,528.03, and the
1904, $10,953.93, the increase being
about four per cent. V
For the four quarters of 1903 the
receipts of the Pullman post office
were $1698.65; $1559.96; $1521.37;
$2035.09. Total, $6815.07. In
1904 the figures were $211990;
$i 749-8 $1665.64; , $2346.96.
Total, $7882.35. The increase of
1904 over the previous year was
thus $1067.2*8, or a per cent increase *
of about 16. •
Thus taking the post office <
figures as an index of the progress
of the city, Pullman has outstrip
ped Colfax four to one.
Another interesting comparison
is this: To do a business of $10950.
--93 at Colfax, Uncle Sam spent in
rents, salaries, etc., $10,688, leav
ing the government a net profit of
but $262.93. At Pullman, to do a
business of $7882.35, the expenses
of the government were $5025,
leaving a net profit of $2857.35 to
Uncle Sam's credit.
