Wee. brown house, with echoing hall. Magic roof and curving wall. What art thou? Beloved so well, Whence has come thy potent spell? Framed three centuries ago. All thy secret 1 would know. From the Architect Supreme Came my plan: a starlight gleam Sorrow’s darkest night to cheer; Love to man hath sent me here. Whoso finds mine inner key Finds life, joy and liberty. Wee brown house, so frail, so strong. Home of gladness, tears, and song. Sounding from thy wondrous floors, . Floating through thy circling doors. Triumph, sorrow, joy, despair— Why has each its echo there? Lol a shining hope 1 stand, Beckoning all with outstretched hand. Thou may’st find, in bending near. Love’s deep secrets vocal here. Love Is lord my walls within— I am called a violin. —Wit. Howard Montgomery. Canon City, Colorado. The state board of equalization hiis finished its work and its valuation of the railroads, telegraph and telephone lines, etc. in Fremont county is $1,114,- 545. Some of the newspapers are publish ing an essay on “Honesty” said to have been written by .lay (iould when he was fourteen. They should add a chap ter about his opinion of honesty when he was forty-one. Pueblo County has just succeeded in refunding its entire bonded indebt edness, amounting to $350,000. The bonds will run ten or twenty years and draw 5 per cent interest. In this con nection, for sake of the comparison, it might be well to say that the entire bonded indebtedness of our own county (Fremont) is only $6,000. A very good index to the business of the country is to take the receipts of the railroad companies. The Denver and Rio (irandc increased 12.1 b per cent for July 1897 over the same month last year. All the railroads in the country are making a marked increase and as a consequence railroad stocks urumi Pin ru ian . ————— t How’s this? A special dispatch rom Uridgetown, N. J. says: “The authorities in this citv have placed a tax on profanity. Precedent has placed the tax at $1 an oath. A citi zen swore twice yesterday and was promptly hauled into court, where he wan fined $2.” What’s the matter with the city council adopting a si miliar measure? It wouldn’t take long to raise money for the city park in that way. Taxpayers of Fremont county should congratulate themselves on the economical and business mariner in which the county affairs have been handled during the last four or five years. Few counties have a better record of reduction in debt and tax levy. In five years the outstanding debt has been reduced from $145,751.56 to $51,701.03. Over $50,000 has been spent in substantial improvements and with all these expenditures the tax levy I Absolutely pure \ I and of highest \ leavening power \ Morey’s j $ t \ Cream Tartar \ I Baking j jj Powder. j j; AT ALL nRAI cr>g | IF’IISr:E O-IROOIEiIRUE© .A.T KAYE BROS. has been reduced from 31 % mills to mills. Surely this record is one to be proud of. A Close Call. While in the ('ripple ('reek district last week A. 11. Davis met with an ac cident that came near costing him hiK life. He left Cation Wednesday ex pecting to l>e gone several days but shortly after his arrival on the same day while in camp in Areqna gulch on Beacon hill with i\. (1. (iulick. Joe and Geo. ('lark, the tent was struck by lightning during a thunder st<>rrn and Mr. Davis received such a shock that he did not recover consciousness for several hours. The lightening struck him in the back followed downward and left his leg at the ankle. His en tire body for a good while was wholly paralyzed and even now lie is almost helpless. Mr. Gulick was also badly stunned but is able to be about. The other two men were shocked badly for a few minutes but soon recovered. Mr. Davis was brought home last Thurs day evening in a precarious condition but is slowly improving. His friends entertain hope that he will recover without permanent injury.

THE OLI» rOI'KT 1101 SK — FRONT VIEW The success of the Strawberry boys at baiida last Sunday and Monday is largely due to the managing ability of ('apiuin Dawson, anu of course, the inferior playing of the Salida club The placing of proper players in the posi tion where they can most strengthen a club is a matter lequiring not only • lie keenest foresight but a vast amount ”f knowledge of the national game. That Mr. Dawson possesses the pre requisites has been fully demonstrated in the games at Salida. The team was composed of but few good ball players, the others been young and inexperi enced, but willing and ambitious. The score in the match games with Salida last Sunday and Monday may not have been in keeping with a high class article of ball, yet we are credita bly informed many good and interest ing plays abounded. The score stood: ~~ (o 2d; 23 to 12. (’afion winning both games. D. L. (iregory acted as master of ceremonies and looked well to the club’s interest.

He arrived early Sunday morning in company with Sheriff Blythe, who went to Rawlins Wyoming, last week for the express purpose of accompanying Mr. Leslie here. This gentleman is held here on the charge of getting money under false pretense from Rev. Chase. His case is a peculiar one. It. seems that there are no other charges of fraud against him here and no indication that he practiced such, though he certainly has made false pretentions.
