We take pleasure in announcing, that on SATURDAY MORNING at 9
o'clock, the doors of our New Store on the corner of Main and Second streets,
will be, opened to the public. In the erection of this building we have endeav
ored to combine all the features of modern architecture, with no known improve
ments omitted, we have also tried to build a store that will be a convenience to
the trade, a credit to ourselves and an ornament to our city. Whether or not we
have been successful in our efforts we must leave to the judgment of our many
friends and patrons. Although the building and all its interior furnishings are
new, our method of doing business remains the same; tried as they are, approv
ed of by the public, no change is possible, and we must therefore adhere to the
following rules in the future as in the past:
1. To buy all goods for cash, in order to secure all the advantages that am
ple capital judiciously applied can secure.
2. To have strictly one price and that the lowest, so that a child can buy as
well as the most experienced buyer
5. To make no misrepresentations of any kind.
4. To keep pace with the times in styles, kinds and qualities.
5. To see that our salespeople are faithful to our patrons and true to our
6. To merit the peoples' patronage, to be thankful for the same, courteous
to all, and just, even at the expense of liberality.
These are our own methods, the foundation of our success, endorsed by the
people; we do, therefore, in confidence, await the future.
Willi a most cordial invitation to everyone to be pres
ent at our opening and our sincere thanks Tor the very
liberal support in the past, we remain,

An Interest Ids Cogwheel Railroad Rout
to the Summit.
A visit to Man i ton is sadly incomplete
nnless one has ascended to the summit of
Pike's peak by the new Pike's peak and
Manitou cogwheel railroad. It is an ex
perience never to be forgotten, and one
"not be missed for twice the cost," as is
commonly said. The road is but 8.9
wiles in length, or to be exact, 40,903 feet
long. The uverage elevation overcome is
844.8 feet to the mile, an average grade of
16 per cent. The maximum grade is 25
per cent., or 250 feet rise in each 1,000
feet traversed. The maximum grade is 16
per cent, in a radins of 339 feet. To climb
such f-rades engines of peculiar construc
tion are used. The boilers are set on the
trucks at an angle of 16 degs., so that in
Climbins the average per cent, of the grade
brings the line of the boiler to the horizon
tal. There are four such locomotives in use
upon this "short line." They weigh twenty-five
tons. The drivers consist of six
cogwheels, which opcrato from the center
of the engine on the teethed rails under
neath. The wheels which run upon the
ordinary T rails are simply used to guide
the engine, and not for traction. The cog
rails are made from the best tempered
Cessenfier steel, the teeth having lx-en cut
from the solid piece by specially con
structed machinery. There are two of
these rails, set 1 inches apart, weighing
from twenty-one to thirty-one pounds per
foot of length, the heaviest rails being
used on the steepest grades. Each rack
rail is eighty inches long, and so placed
beside its companion as to break joints.
The teeth are "staggered," so as to give
the six cogwheel drivers of the locomotive
perfect bearing at all times.
The utmost care was taken in grading
the roadbed and laying the track. To pre
vent the moving or sliding of the track,
which was quite possible, unless pre
cautions were taken, owing to its enormous
weight and the action of the heavy train,
no fewer than 146 anchors have been firmly
set in the solid rock to sustain it. These
anchors are set at from 200 to COO feet
apart, according to grade. The ties are
bound together by planks spiked longi
tnd.nully where the grade is the heaviest.
The cars are peculiar affairs, and are
pushed up ahead of the engine and de
tached therefrom. They cau be let down
grade independently from the engine by
means of cogwheel brakes. The seats are
set at the average angle of the grade, at
which they are horizontal, while the floor
of the car is inclined from 16 to 25 degs.
These cars carry from thirty to forty pas
sengers. The trip up the mountain is superb. It
is a constant change of scene. Lovely
Bowers, foaming cataracts, placid streams
and frowning crags thrill the beholder as
he proceeds to the regions of perpetual
snow. The somber pine and silver spruce
luxuriate In the shady canyons, while the
a pen and willow thrive along the streams
until timber line Is reached. From this
point up to the summit nothing but stones,
canty blades of hardy grasses aud modest
flowerets are to be seen. From the sum
mit an indescribable panorama spreads for
miles on all Bides. Colorado City, Colorado
Springs, Fountain, Pueblo, Monument
ad other towns are. mors ox lew. discern
ible to the naked eye, while Denver may be
plainly seen seventy-five milesdistant with
agood fieldglass. The cost of the trip both
ways is but live dollars, or by rail up the
peak and carriage descending, six dollars.
