MAIN flUENOE You May Spend All the Money You please on handsome furniture, costly paintings, statuary and other magnificent ideas, but if you take away softening influences and charming graces of ap propriate draperies, the effect of all your collection of costly beauty would be so diminished as to become wearisome to the eye aud a positive bore to the refined or sensitive mind. Beautiful Draperies Are Not Expensive This week we are making a practical demonstration of this iact, aud the practical home maker, housekeeper, or co zy room or corner furnisher may learn much in a few minutes spent in our Drapery Department these days that all the reading and home study of a month could not impart. The truth is, we are enthusiastic on the subject of Popular Priced Draperies , And upholstering? and offer opportunities to buyers of ;,.,, taste such as are not to be had elsewhere. All the new n'mfabrics, tone effects aud colorings are seen at their best in our extensive collection, and our long and success- .Till 111 t ' ;; '"Jful study of how to make homes beautiful at a surpris r , i'ngly low cost may be of value to you.

BIG GOLD STRIKE PUTIN DENVER Rich Bed of Ore found Under Tabor Opera House Recalls Sad Story of Former Millionaire. By Exclusive Wire from Tho Associated Press. Denver, Oct. 1. A gold mine under the Tabor Opera House .and the post office. What a travesty of fate! Senator Tabor, the man who built the opera house and gave the govern ment the land for the federal building, died in poverty, wrecked by mining speculations after having made a for tune In mines. A man boring a water hole in the alley between the two buildings struck ore this morning. The five-inch pipe that sinks down into the bowels of the earth has hither to brought up nothing but sand and mud, but this noon, to the amazement of the well men, some pieces of ore, w 1th big yellow lumps in it, were car ried to the surface. There was a flutter of excitement among tho well-woikers, anl John M. Mitchell, an old miner, Who Is em ployed nearby, was summoned and shown a lot of ore. He critically In spected the rock and pronounced It the richest peacock gold. "There is a paying body of ore right under this alley and these buildings," he exclaimed. "I would not have be lieved it, but there's mo mistaking the real stuff. Why, this rock ought to go n.OOO a ton." "It seems passing strange that Hor ace W. Tabor, tho fiist of the great miners In Colorado, who died after losing his wealth, should have built the opera house over a bigger mine than he ever owned," said one of tho federal officials." The well men think that If a shaft is sunk near the well they ought to have a small portion of the profits, as through their efforts tho discovery was made. It Is astonishing to find a gold mine in the heart of Denver, but noth ing is Impossible in a mineral way in Colorado. Property owners In tho neighborhood ate intensely interested In the result of tho assays, which will determine whether It Is advisable to sink shafts In tho neighborhood and actively mine the earth. Lawyers are being consult ed regaiding the mining rights of city property owneis and the possible ex tent of claims within the corporate limits of a city. All sorts of rumors arc flying about, the well has now reached a depth of 3S0 feet, and has been In rock about eight feet. This is the second attempt to sink a well In the alley. Tho first timo the drill broke at a depth of 500 feet and a new hole had to be started. DTJLUTH HAS AN IRON MINE. Workmen Strike a Deposit of Tine Ore in That City. By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press. Duluth, Oct. 1. Workmen engaged in making altoiatlons in the First Na tional Bank building, at the moat im portant business corner in Duluth, to day stiuck a deposit of iron ore under the boiler room of tho building. Tho ore assayed sixty-five per cent, metal lic lion, and it is 3ald to be aa line as anything ever found In this coun tiy. Thij vein that was found by tho workmen was not large, hut it ap peared to bo an outcropping of a larg er deposit, and it la impossible to tell where the bed of oie reaches. It may extend up and down along tho most piomlnent business street In town. It is In such shape that It Is impossible to tell much about it ex tent nt piesont without making ex cavations that the owners of tho building do not desire to risk at pres ent. Considerable interest is taken in the find for the jeason that this point Is distant eight miles from tho nearest known lion deposits of the Minnesota ranges, and tho presence of oto heie hos never been suspected. If tho de posit should prove to be extensive, it tluows tho subjeot of Iron develop ments wide open, and mining men will not undoitako to say how great the deposits of ore under this county may prove to be, ' TWO NEW PAPERS FOR LONDON. 0, Scott and Mrs. Williamson to Bilng Out Weekly Publications. Dj Kxcluslvo Who from The Associated Press. London, Oct, 1. Two now weeklies aie about to appear. Tho first Is Clem ent Scott's Feo Lance, which will bo published noxt week, with an article by Mario Corel!! as tho chief attrac tion. Tho second Is a now boolety paper which Mrs. Williamson Is about to biing out. Mts. Williamson Is a young woman of unexceptional social position, the wife of a colonel In the British army, and has many Influential friends here and in America Interested in her enture, She brought out tho celebrated Book of Beauty four years ago and has late, ly been editing the society column of tho Dttll Mail and writing for it un der tho Mgnature of "The Onlooker," which will be the name of her paper, Mrs. Williamson says the paper will be run entirely on the idea of the "gieat vuuo of Anglo-American co dictation In all questions of politics and trade.' ' BIG NEW RAILROAD IS NOW ASSURED WILL BE A STRONG RIVAL TO THE UNION PACIFIC. The Line Will Run from Salt Lake City to the Const Senator Clark of Montana, Chief Promoter A Monopoly Will Be Broken and Vast Inland Riches Will Be Developed. tty Exclusive Wlr from The Associated Pre Chicago, Oct, 1. Senator William A. Clark, tho many time millionaire of Montana, Improved "tho shining hour" yesterday by consummating plans for the building of the Los Angeles end Salt Lake City railway. Senator Clnrk has been staying at the Annex since Thursday last, ostensibly to consult with tho Democratic national commit tee, but ho remained over yosterdiy purposely to meet nnd consult with certain Salt Lake City capitalists and Los Angeles personages, who arrived here Friday night. Another chief pro motor Is it. c. Kerens, of St. Louli, who, as Republican national commit teeman fiom Missouri, It Just now a permanent fixture at the Annex. Senator Clark yesterday admitted the truth of the story, but said that the consultation had not determined upon any finalities and that the facts were not yet In a state for publication. Tho now Los Angeles and Salt Lake City railway absorbs the franchise and property of the Los Angeles Terminal company. This provides for the en trance of the new railway Into tho southern California metropolis. The Mormon church, which is the power behind the throne In Salt Lake, has practically promised a terminal site in the Utah capital, and Pioneer square, a tract of ten acreB In the center of the city, will be turned over to the rail way for its stations and freight depols. Between the termini the whole un opened southwest will be epatihed. The Sierra Nevada Will be pierced through one of its southern passes and the supremacy of the Southern Pacific rail way, hitherto unchallenged oh the Pa cific coast, will be effectually broken, at least In southern California. The death of COllls P. Huntington removed the last obstacle to the success of the Clark-Kerens syndicate. Plan Vast Developments. The construction will require $25,000. 000 in expenditure. But not merely will tho trend of commerce be changed in new directions thereby, but tho syndi cate has in its eye a vast commercial development. Southern Utah and east ern Nevada contain coal and the best iron ore, besides the precious metals. The region will some day be the Penn sylvania of the West. Said R. C. Ker ens lost night: "We contemplate a second Illinois steel works there. We mean to make the iron and steel for the entire Pacific west. Surveys have revealed the llch ness of the country through which we shall pass in the useful metals, and wo purpose to establish great smelters and metal works." Senator Clark has great mine hold ings In the regions and last winter he made a journey through Utah and Nevada especially to inspect them and to estimate their possibilities. Tho region Is also one capable of indefinite development agriculturally. The Mormons arc largely interested in the proposed railway, and they are most highly skilled In the art of irri gation. It Is their people whom most largely are expected to avail them selves of the agricultural expansion the railway will make possible, and what they have done for northern and east ern Utah thev may be expected to do for the new region. California, however, will be most Im mediately affected. The monopoly of the Southern Pacific will be at nn end, at least for Los Angeles. That city, made the terminus of a gieat deml continental railway system, will more than ever bo assured of an Immense commercial future. Despite the fact that Its port of San Monica Is but an open toadstcad, Los Angeles will be bound to become the Pacific outlet for the southwest, since San Diego, fine as Is Its harbor, is too far south, just above tho MexTsan boi der. The federal government, too, Is improving the aitl flclal harbor at San Monica by great woiks. STERNBERG'S OPINION. Admits That Drunkenness Has Di minished on Account of Canteen. By Kxcluslve Wire from The Associated Press Tfeishlngton, Oct. 1. The following was made public today at' the war de partment: War Dcpirtment. Surgeon General's OIHce, Washington, Oct. J, 1000. To the adjutant gcncnl of tho army. hlri My attention has been called to a pub lished Btatement attributed to me, opposing the army canteen. I presume this statement as published is practically what 1 said tome jcars since when interviewed upon the subject, al though I da not at present remember to whom it was given. I did not at first look with favor upon the proposition tu sell beer to soldiers at army canteens. That opinion wis not based upon personal observation, as I had not been stationed at a military post since the canteen was established, Owing to the general con census of opinion among lino officers nnd medira, olftcers of the army who have had ample oppor tunity to observe the effect of tho army cantun upon the habits of our soldiers, I am obliged to admit that, fiom a prattlcal point of view, It seems to have accomplished very desirable results in reducing tho amount of ilrunfcenncss In the arm) und the disposition on the pait of the soldiers to leave their stations tor Hie pur pose of obtaining spirituous liquor.
