Wid" Rispen got himself tangled
up with too many flowing bowls last
evening, with the result that at about
the hour when most people are re
tiring he began having a wild and
woolly time in the neighborhood of
his mother's home on Twenty-first
street. In order to sustain his repu
tation which he had made by threats
of dire destruction to everything
about him, he began his awful work
by upsetting barrels of his mother's
rainwater. Not . content with
this violent display of wantonness,
he ran out into the street
where he staggered up against a Bel
gian who did not take kindly to
Wid's" seeming familiarity, and
the result was one of the most ani
mated and mixed up affairs ever
witnessed on Twenty-tirst street.
For fully 20 minutes the two princi
pals, assisted ly allies from both
sides, did battle royal which was
only stopped when both sides became
weary from exhaustion. Their
sporty sport was not interrupted
by any of the guardian angels of

Capt. C. W. Durham, the genial

Gen. Barnard, is confined to his home
in this city with illness of which the
primary cause, no doubt, was expos
ure, to which the captain was subject

Mississi ppi. At the mouth of the Mis
souri the good ship Barnard encoun
tered a tremendous gail, the most fu
rious that within all the captain's ex
perience as a seaman he had ever
known. The Barnard had been out
in storms before, and severe ones,
too, and so had the captain, but this
was the most terrific either had been
at the mercy of, and it is told that
notwithstanding the military distinc
tion that has of late come to Capt.
Durham or Col. Durham as we
speak of him now, in connection
with land forces his courage forsook
him, and despite the gravi
ty of the situation the vision of the
corpulent captain and the cook rac
ing for the life boat, afforded a cheer
ing lull in the series of exciting inci
dents. But to be brief the Barnard
weathered the storm and lauded safe
ly in port, while the master of the
ship, after the example of Columbus,
led in returning thanks for reaching
land again. The Barnard showed
the effects of the storm, but no less
so than Capt. Durham, and this ac
counts for his present indisposition
which his many friends while "josh
ing" him concerning it, will pray
may prove of only brief duration.

serving with credit from the time of
his enlistment. Deceased was also a

It Opens to the Public Nert strndaj Im
provements. Black Hawk Watch Tower, that de
lightful point of pleasure and inter
est on Rock river, will be thrown
open to the public for the season
next Sundav-. The occasion will be
signalized by the attendance of a
brass band and possibly other special
- f inprovenaents Helnfc Made.
Since the opening of the season the
street railway syndicate has been
busy with a system of improvements, i
Sievers & Anderson- have now about
completed a beautiful picnic and
dancing pavilion which is located
about 15D feet west of Black Hawk
Inn. It is 60x80 feet in size and of
Gothic desien. The first lloor will
be provided with tables and chairs
for spreads, and the second lloor will
be devoted to a ball room. Anoth
er great improvement, and one that
will prove of much benefit, is the
building a svstem of waterworks.
At the pump house, erected near the
foot of the toboggan slide, is situated
a powerful pump, operated by an
electric motor. This forces the
water from the well into a 20,000
gallon tank, erected on a knoll near
the main entrance on a 50-foot tower,
but at a height of 175 feet above the
river. From this tower the water
is piped throughout the buildings
and the entire grounds, and will
amply furnish all the water for every
purpose desired. All the buildings
on the ground are to be illuminated
with electric lights.
Keautirylue the OrouDilt.
A new system of walks run
through the grounds, and until the
grass which has been sown within
the enclosures which are fenced off
by barbed wire, gets to sprouting,
visitors will be cautioned to keep on
them. Considerable shrubbery has
been put out as well as a number of
flowering plants, and people are re
quested not to destroy the trees or
shrubs or buildings, but to take the
same pride and interest in them that
the campany does in creating them
for the public's amusement and ben
efit. The iHg Contact Milling Company.
The above named company owns
one of the largest mining properties
in the state of Colorado, consisting
of live patented claims and a patent
ed mill site of live acres situated on
Horn Silver mountain. Eagle county,
Colorado, about two miles distant
from Red Cliff. Four of these claims
are located on the lime belt, which
is the same contact on which the
fanotH Iron Mask and Belden mines
are located. The Iron Mask is pro
ducing about 940,000 per month and
the Belden at the present time is
producing over f 1,000 net per dav
Extensive operations were carried on
at very heavy expense by the former
owners ot the Big Contact property
10 or 12 years ago and the develop
ments at that time showed as lartre a
contact in this property as is found
in any of the best producing proper
ties located on this lime belt, and at
that time such an extensive body of
ore-was opened up in the Big Con
tact to warrant the erection of a large
stamp mill on the Big Contact mill
site, intending thereby to overcome
the excessive freight and smeltinjr
charges; but experience proved that
smelting was necessary for treatment
of this ore and nothing remained to
be done at that time but shutdown
the mine, as the ore was not of suffi
cient value to pay the enormous
freight and smelting charges which
in those days amounted to $60 per
ton; the average value of the ore be
ing about $30 per ton it would entail
a loss of $30. This same ore can now
be freighted and smelted for about
$10 per ton, leaving a profit of about
$20. and now mines along this line
contact which laid idle for years are
among thc largest producers and best
payers in the state of Colorado. The
old workings in the Big Contact
property from long idleness have be
come unsafe to oporate in, and a new
tunnel has been run in a distance of
350 feet; about 250 or 300 feet still
remains to be done to reach the ore
body which was opened up in former
years. Fifty thousand shares of
treasury stock are offered at 15 cents
per share for money sufficient to do
this work. The capitalization is
600,000 shares' at $1 per share full paid
and non-assessable, 200,000 shares are
set aside for treasury stock. The
money from this 50,000 shares will in
all probability be sufficient to reach
the ore bod-" disclosed in the old
workings, and all indications go to
show that this property will make as
heavv a producer as any mine on
this 'lime contact, which, judging
from the output of the mines along
this contact, will make every inves
tor in this stock a handsome profit
and income investment. The tunnel
should be finished by Aug. 1, and the
Bir Contact numbered among the
steady shippers before many months.
The location is such that the proper
ty can le worked the year round.
Subscriptions to stock are hereby so
licited. No less than 100 shares will
be issued. All subscriptions of stock
must be in before June 1, 1893. H.

The indications for the next 36
hours from 8 a. hl. are: Rains and
warmer to-day, probably clearing
during Tuesday; southerly winds,
becoming westerly Tuesday evening.

THE RAG MAT FEVER.
Wt y Fanner Joel Took un Intense Dislike
to One Form of DiHease.
' Td as lives our women folks would
git a disease hitched on to 'em in the
fall as this here rag mat fever," said
Joel Potter to his hired man as they
rested from their labors in the great
open door of the barn. "I'd livser,
fur that matter, fur then they might,
with nursin. git over it," he added
after some thought. His listener
nodded sympathetically, as one ac
quainted with trouble of that flature.
"I know it, JoeL" he said. "A
man ain't saf e ter lay down his clo'se,
keerlesslike, 'thout he wants 'em cut
up and hooked in in scroll pattern."
"That's jest it," chimed Joel, glad
of an appreciative ear. " 'Lizy'd slit
up anything when the hankerin's on

.As a rule most people are intensely
exasperated when, after wading
through some exciting story in the
newspaper which they have devoured
with breathless interest, to find at
the finish it is only a trap to adver

medicine. Of course its disappoint
ing, but just consider how cleverly
its done, and, by the way, what a
wonderful industry has been devol
fiil in this mode of ad vertisinf.

their advertising agent as high as
$10,000 a year, and a certain manu
