Al though there seems to be at preseat a superfluity of newspapers published In Gabon, we hare no reason to sup uine. When we suspended in favor of the late daily we felt that it was better to step aside and give it a fair trial, knowing from our experience that a paper of that kind could not be made self-supporting in Canon City, and had we continued the publication of the Uecosd during the daily's struggle, we might have had the blame of Its failure placed at our door. As it is, we cauuot feel respon sible for Its death, nor can any one claim, with truth , that we have ever stood iu the wav of auy public enter prise calculated to benefit our town in the smallest degree, j Had wc known that the dally would exist only three months instead of six, wc • might have worded our contract dif j Terentiy, making the publication of j the Hkcoud permissible at an earlier : date. Although our friends claimed j that wc had a right to renew directly ; after the withdrawal of the daily, we j prcfvred to fill our contract to the letter, thereby making it impossible for any trouble to arise from a broken agreement. Iu the mcautiuse another weekly started, claiming our old subscribers by tbe contract, although the com pany with which our agreement was made had uothing to do with the lat ter paper. Our citixcut cauuot look upon us as an interloper, but recog nize ua as sn tdd Nuileat of Colorado, having lived In the state more tliau eleven years, the last seven of which we have apenl in this counter, marry ing and raising our family within Its limits. If a tnau has not an estab lished reputation in that time he I must bo composed of poor material j “that wou’l wash.** it is impossible . for us to discover what lies iu the fu ; ture. The general opinion seems to j be that so many papers cannot exist, j that it will be oulv a question of who I can staud the longest scigo. We real l ire this to a certain extent and havo i endeavored to make our arrauge . incuts accordingly. Having all of i our business under one roof it cna. j bles us to aileud to every detail thor -1 ouglily and ccouotuieally aud with as j much ease as three tnen could do it, were our affairs separate. Our intention is to give the readers of the Kkcokd au excellent aud re liable uewspaper, publishing every item of public iulerest. making local unws a specialty. Our real estate agency brings us in coutact with hun dreds of peoplo which enables us to gather mauy newsy items which could not be learned otherwise without au assistant. Wo shall studiously avoid making tho Hkcouo a medium through which to air any persoual unpleasant uess aud disgracing its columns by cx|>osiug tho faults of our chance enemy, for the public enlight enment. Zealously supporting the good old republican party, endeared to us by many hardships, we ahall never de viate from our former rule, that of as. sistiug every republican nominee ou the ticket without bolt or disparage inout. Although wo may have a pref erence before the nomination, we shall work fftcluaiv’ely for the elec tion of the men nominated as united effort Is the ouly rncaus through which our party can hope to succeed. Hoping to seo good, honest, capable meu ou our tlekct, we trust to the sound Judgment of our party, and they can In turn rdy upon our hearty and unswerving support. Mine.

'i This is the first time in our eleven years residence in Colorado that we have seen any of the real old fashioned locusts, having: picked up a dead one this week near the depot. Others have been found iu that vicinity iu a state bordering on petrifaction. Well if we must have them we will take ours served iu that style. In Arabia, Syria, Egypt, Madagascar, aud other countries, the locusts Ur*eaten as a great delicacy, being roasted or fried iu butler. Knowiug the unbounded generosity of Ajueric* to foreigners, we can safely promise those oppressed Egyptians, if they fly to this country, to let them eat all of our locusts, good, bad and indifferent, with the nice little grasshoppers, thrown in, H they will fhralsh theirowu butter. There's nothing mcau about ns. A Wonderful Cure Witbout Patient Medi cines. Mr. J. E.

Mr. Jftmu recovered eo iepi% while ot hie tint rMI that he returned to bit old return and before lie eonltl decide to leave hit old homo, where he was surrounded bv every comfort and any amount oflurelatiires, lie fouud himseif so seriously afflicted with the old disease that lie #ould not slee() in bed, and during his worse attacks would turn black lu the face, fils family Insisted upon lib returning to Canon City, and although so weak when he arrived at. l*ueblo that he could scarcely .walk up the steps of the hotel he recovered nearly entire ly when he reached Ci&m City* and hat slept iu bed every night since. On Tuesday last we tuft Mr. Fean and Mr. Tarbotou, another invalid, who were on a tramp from the lower part of town to the soda springs* which would require >bout four miles to accomplish the trip. Such cures as the above are every day oc cur ran cos in this neighborhood, but we feci that we owe It to the thous ands of sufferers in the east to give such facts without the least coloring. When wc mention the fket that Mr. Fcnu has been under the care of some of the most eroiuent physicians, pav ing them at the rate of $8 per day for six months at the time, it shows what a truly wouderful health giving climate wc enjoy. Although business may seem quiet just now, the prospects are brighter for our towu than they were a year ago. There are several reasous why this should be so. The srops in the Hardscrabble country were never better. Some estimate that the grain raised In that sectiop Hih year will equal all four of the preceding years combined. Nearly all qf tide grain will be bought by our Hour mill and thereby canae considerable trading between our city and this fortunate district. Then again our stock in terests are in a flourishing condition. The cattle never looked better and the price of beef being hlghor than usual, quite a harvest will bo gathered In this fall when tales be gin. The mines of I'rentout county are being quietly worked without any unnatural booming and the ship ments of ore continues ns regularly aa our large vegetable consign men is, Hie latter by the wav, bdiag no small Industry, aa hundreds of men are em ployed railing garden supplies, which are shipped In ear lend lots to Lead* vllle end the tieaaigoa ©one try.

Two frh'ght collided near South Bend, led., piling #0 earn upon the track and setting them on Art. 81a tramp* were burned and ISW,* WO worth of property consumed. Ob last Tuesday, the Ist hist, the great turning exposition of Dourer, which has so long been the absorb ing tapic of the state, was opened at 8:90 p. m. The weather being in an llirrwble mood made no interference. The military parade of nearly a uiilc la Jjßgth was among the grandest ■afaidsi of the day. Judge ftellev mill $ vary eloquent address in Jkt paid our mate aud its peo- higliaat compliments and greeting Iren the. east and dK pt«w|jf*k}olorsdo sAwaSSI industries that hare giren her wealth and power.” Agricultural, horticultural, me ehanical, mercantile aud mineral ex %ihita with innumerable other in duatries represented, were exposed to the view of the many thousand* in due form and order. Every county iu our slate made a showing of which all might feel a pardonable pride. The number ol mines represented were as follows: Gilpin county 37; Pitkin county 143; San Juan county !10; Hinsdale county 10*2; Jefferson county numerous miueral exhibits of gold and silver also copper, lead, iron, marble, lime, cement, plaster of pans, coal, building stone, etc., etc., the full amount ot specimens not ascertained. Custer county has an exhibition of about tcu tous of ore with more to hear from. The com missiouers of Fremont county to the exhibitiou have erected a handsome pagoda where our numerous mines make an excellent showing, as well as the agricultural aud many other of our resources that will reveal to the curious public the secret ot our copliuucd prosperity. We arc sorry to anuouuce the death of Hon. J. A. XcCandlcss* mother at Florence, last week.

Kelley, of Pennsylva nia, made the opening speech at llie Exposition. The ministers and church officers in Denver arc thoroughly opposed to the Exposition being kept open ou Sundays. T)ie military companies from Leadville and Colorado Springs were present at the Reposition. The .pa rade was very imposing. A boy 18 years of age, near St Louis, deliberately shot cud killed hit father last week, for which he was found guilty of murder in the first degree and it it thought will hang.

Mrs. Sowers tvas greatly astonished last week by examining a gnat ball front-a cottonwood tree. She says there were “millions iu it.” It is supposed these pestiferous little in sects breed in the balls and subsist on them until large enough to eat their way outside. A good idea would be for those surrounded by cot ton wood-trees to collect the balls | and burn them. Master Harry, the promising son of Postmaster Bow lb}*, celebrated his fourteenth birthday on last Saturday evening, in a most happy snauner. A goodly number of Harry's young frieuds assembled to do honor to the occasion and presented their host with inanv well selected presents.
