TRIP AMONG THE ROCKY WONDERS Cheyenne Canon, Col., Aug 17. After enjoying the trip to the prairies it is no unwelcome diversion to rest among the Rocky wonders, climb to dizzy heights, drink the panacea of re storing health amid the regions of perpetual snow, and write your postal card out In a snow storm in August, as wo did on Mt. McClellan. Where I now sit the inspired artist has en deavored to explain the majesty of the rocks, laugh of the rill, and beauty of the falls, and yet pen or brush have failed so utterly to give any idea of what sights can be seen; that my meager effort shall lend Its energy to induce others to come and see tho undescribable Rocky scenery. This morning we ride on a' tally-ho, run, walk, or climb, singing tsuch couplets as "Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty," "Rocks and Rills and All Creation Praise God's Name Forever More," "My Country," etc. And now rest at Brinn's Inn, and in less majestio regions than Inspiration Point or Seven Falls we laugh when our hand moves and writes. At Helen Hunt Falls, God help me to think some thought And say some word sublime For'Mn this stream and rocks galore Thy handiwork doth shine. Tls great to sit at "Helen Hunt1'' The Falls all men adore, And feel its spray fall on your face Soft as a mother's lore. How sweet to think our souls may rove, Besides God's crystal streams, And sit down beside the Rock Thar rich in mercy gleams. God wo would write some useful line, Some spray of heaven's lore To fall from hearts In smiles On those who clamber near our shore. But already "All aboard" greets our cars, and aa we pity the hores. we race with a Kansas attorney across to the divide on foot, where at an elevation of over 9,000 feet, we rest at Mrs. Captain Jack Ward's cabin, a gold prospector just think how a woman can live and be perfectly happy If she chooses but we did not win the race with the Kansas at torney. Perhaps this was due to his having learned to scheme while run ning for Congress, for by looking ahead, Kansas cut through a gulch and gained one-fourth of a mile on Ohio, so while defeated, we sang out, Here's to Kansas, she won the race, though we very much wish to be In her place. The mountains are beau tiful with flowers at this season. Ex cursion trains are run up the Colorado Midland for gathering them, and who can afford to miss the sight and fra grance of the armfulls of Columbine and other mountain flowers brought by the tourists on their return. Expenses are not necessarily high. We have a fine room at'Manalean at a moderate rate and more than we can eat at 25c a meal. Here the wealthy and weary alike forget their burdens whllt they drink from soda and iron fountains and nature's bower while they discuss the greatness of their Maker. At the close of day wo are sad only In this all lovers of nature in our dear home city have not been with us in our rambles. From one who heartily believes that lovo of country and duty to kin compels you to travel or commit a sin. MRS. A. J. DE HOFF, Gallon Ell Boblltt of Sunbury ham let, who died at the age of 96, left a remarkable line of 220 living defend ants, There are 10 children, 61 grand children, 131 great grandchildren and 19 great great grandchildren. SY WITHIN TWO SQUARES OF OAPITOL Subject Has Been Going .About Streets Freely Thought to Have Con tracted the Disease While Serving in the Philippines Will be Kept Under Guard. Washington, Aug. 23. A well de veloped case of leprosy has been dis covered in a lodging house on Penn sylvania avenue, conducted as a mis sion by the Salvation Army and within two squares of the capltol. The subject, John R. Early, came to Wash ington six days ago from Lynn, N. C, and had gone freely about the capltol, eating at various restaurants, ming ling with people, and using the street cars. The case was discovered by a physician called to attend Early for some minor ailment. He observed three suspicious looking white spots on the patient's forehead and ques tioned him. Closer inspection con vinced the physician who promptly telephoned the health authorities of the District of Columbia. An ambu lance responded and carried Early to an isolated quarter of the district where a closer inspection was made. The health department of Washing ton have officially pronounced the case one of leprosy. The patient is about 35 years old, has a wife and child in Lynn, N. C, with whom he lived until he came to Washington nearly a week ago. He had no knowledge of the serious character of the disease until informed by the phy-' sician. He says the first symptoms appeared about eighteen months ago. He believes he contracted the disease while serving as a soldier in the Philippines. He was a private in the fifth regiment of the New York vol unteers, which served in the provi sional army In the Philippines. He enlisted in that regiment at Platts burg barracks. Slnco he quit the ser vice Early has worked In New York and other, cities at clerical work and Is a member it the Salvation Army, having seen service in the organiza tion in New York city. Early has been placed in a tent es pecially erected for his isolation In the rear of the Bmall police quaran tine station near the district jail on the bank of the eastern branch of the Potomac. He will be kept there under guard until cold weather comes when if necessary a house will be built to make him more comfortable. He has been supplied with bed clothes and clothing and utensils necessary for living. His food ia carried to him and poured into vessels supplied for his personal use. He does his own washing. The room from which he was taken was securely locked as soon as the discovery was first made and has been fumigated under direc tion of the health department. Every place in which he is known to have been has been fumigated. Even street cars in which he rode have been disinfected. Early came to Washington to personally urge a claim for a pension for himself as a former soldier and visited the pension office several times. The authorities In North Carolina have been notified of the case and requested to conduct an Investigation to determine the movements of Early In and around Lynn and -to take precautions for the prompt apprehension of any suspected cases that may arise from contact with him. A number of persons visited the lo cality where Early Is Isolated today and newspaper men talked with him. He appeared remarkably cheerful un der all the circumstances. He asked the health department to keep from his wife information as to the char acter of his illness. This being im possible he expressed a desire to re turn to his wife and child to be per mitted to die near them if it would not subject them to the disease. "If this is not possible then I am per fectly willing to remain right here or anywhere else the authorities may say until the end comes," said he. EDGEFIELD. Edgefield, Aug. 23.

FITZGERALD'S ARREST SOLVES ROBRERY MYSTERY Chicago, Aug. 23, George W. Fitz gerald was arrested late last night at his home on a charge of stealing $173,- 000 from the Chicago sub-treasury. The arrest, It Is believed, solves tho great sub-treasury robbery, which for nearly two years has mystified the keenest detectives of the government secret service. Tho warrant was sworn out at mid night before Judge Arthur H. Chet laln, by Herbert F. Young general manager of the Young Secret Service company. The detective manager act ed under instructions from Assistant Treasurer William Roldenwelck, in charge of tho Chicago sub-treasury. Fitzgerald was bundled Into an auto mobile and taken to the office of the Young Secret Service company. There he was sweated for two hours. He was taken to the county Jail at 2 o'clock this morning. He was turned over to the federal authorities today. Oil Case to be Carried to the United States Supreme Court VITAL TO RAILROADS Chicago, Aug. 23. If the plans of the government carry the Standard Oil case will be carried to the United States supreme court by a "short cut'' method. This is revealed in an ob scure paragraph of the petition filed with the United States court of appeals for a re-hearlng of the reversal of the $29,240,000 fine. Judges Grosscup, Seaman and Bak er are asked by Attorney General Bonaparte to certify the entire pro ceedings to the supreme court. Here tofore it has been generally supposed the only method by which the depart ment of justice could get a hearing of the oil case before the highest tribunal was through a petition for a writ of certiorari. That proceeding would mean a delay until the inter mediate court had disposed of the re hearing plea. The government, however, seeks to facilitate matters through an imme diate certification of the case to the supreme court. It is pointed out to the judges of the court of appeals that their opinion leaves in doubt the question of the defendant's "guilty knowledge." They are told that the statute provides that they may at any time certify to the supreme court any questions or propositions of law concerning which they desire con struction. In view of the fact that the question of the defendant company's "guilty knowledge" is the most important point involved In the reversal of Judge Landls, the certification of the propo sition practically would amount to an appeal of the entire case. The petition dwelling on this feat ure, adds the question involved is vital to shippers and railroads. "Suits are now pending In practi cally every circuit court of the United States," says the government lawyers, "and this is a point upon which emi nent judges differ. In fact, it is a question expressly left open for the supreme court, under these circum stances we respectfully suggest that this court may certify this question to the supremo court to the end that a final decision of this important ques tion may be obtained." HIGHLAND PARK Highland Park, Aug 23. The ten days' encampment for the worship of God came to a close on Sunday night, amidst scenes of great interest and profit. All the services of the past ten days have been leading up to this last Sabbath as a climax, and a great amount of spiritual power was mani fest as a result. An immense throng of people was present, and thousands wero touched by the gospel messages. From early morning to late at night the grove resounded with song and praise. The preaching of Rev. W. H. Fouke in the morning and afternoon was a means of great power upon his hearers. Both messages were eloquent and full of spiritual fervor. This man of God has again won his way into the hearts of the attendants of the High land Park meeting. The morning prayer service was led by Rev. H D. Shultz, of Cleveland. It was a fitting beglning for the day. At 9 a. m., Rev. J. A. Grimm conducted a service of prayer and song and tes timony. The Sunday school, Rev. P. E. Smoke, superintendent, was very interesting, more than a thousand peo ple being present. At 6:30 Rev. Wil liam Davis conducted a Young People's service on the hillside, and in the evening Rev. M. M.

Mllner's horse and buggy, stolen from a hitching post in front of David Harris' saloon, corner of Third and Court streets, last Thursday ev ing, after it had been hired by Mich ael J. Bolar, was found Sunday night In Orrvllle, where a man was trying to dispose of It. The man who stole It had the horse in the stables con nected with the Rest house at that place and the low price which he of fered It at led the proprietor of the stable to surmise that It was stolen.
