He toileth not, neither doeth spin, yet 1 say unto you that not even Solomon in all his glory had an appetite like one of these. ______ Canon’s real estate .s beginning to move. Heal estate men report Septem her and October the best months Cafion has had in several years. Several big deals are now on. Editor Work, of the Refiner, did a good thing when he published that illus trated extra edition. It is a neat thing and sets forth the beauties and attrac tions of his city very nicely. Don’t judge a man by his appeal ances. A shabby coat and patched trousers may envelop an honest editor, while the man who wears a dress suit and carries a frold-headed cane may be a delinquent subscriber. Colorado will produce this year upwards of 824,000,000 worth of gold The entire gold production of the world for 1807 is only estimated at about 240,000,000, so it will be seen that our own state is producing one-tenth of the gold of the world. It is estimated that the cotton crop of the South will, this year, sell lor 8322,000,000 as against 8204,000,00) of last year. This is a net increase ol 828,000,000 profit for our Southern friends for the first year of Republican administration. A Florence delegate aptly remark ed in a speech that u the fusion of Dem ocrats with Populists was as natural as the mixing of women with the angels.” Yes, that’s so; just about as natural That is, the one has to die or become unconscious before the mixing can be done. The Festival of Mountain and Plain was a great thing—for Denver and the railroads. It is estimated that five hundred people went from Cafion and they probably spent on an average of 820 each, or 810;000 of the profits of the season spent in Denver with nothing but pleasure in return. Fremont county will probably yet take in Salida. It’s just as well, we seem to be divorced from Chaffee coun ty anyway. Wonder if they’ve got a Populist party down thereV—Salida Record. You are welcome brother, but you will find the Populists rather scarce in Fremont county. Debh declares that the courts have “annihilated the constitution, abrogated the right of trial by jury, forbidden free speech, suppressed peaceable assem blages and transformed our republic into an absolute despotism.” Wonder how much better things would be if Debs were our emperor V “You may talk about the rich get ting richer and the poor poorer all you please,” says the editor of the Russell (Kas.) Journal, “but we can name a score of llussell county people who, six months ago, were practically paupers and to-day are worth from 82,000 to 8&.000, and ail of it was made by raising one crop of wheat.” GO TO K-A.TTEI BROS.

(James Lane Allen’s “Kentucky Cardinal.”) The year is tending to repose, The sun’s in muffled tender blue. There’s swan-like clouds at evening’s close; No more the black and threatening hue. The eagerness of spring is o’er. The bee, so nimble once, is gone. The cuckoo’s notes are slacked yet more And slowed like wheel when harvest’s done. The dowers are stuffed with hurrying bloom. Lest all too late their beauties show; The locust’s whiszlng wings—’tis doom! Into the autumn silenpe go. The night-hawk mounts to higher tiight In ether blue, he sails above The fainting earth, and claims his right To breathe the purer air above. And nature’s peace is round me, too. The wild unrest of youth is gone; The heart notes, cuckoo-like, are true. Tho’ slow the wheel of life moves on. Yet d%ys are now with sadness thrilled. Lest all too soon—no good deeds done— Life’s autumn pass—the goblet’s dlled. The soul to higher dight be gone! —Mrs. O. P. Eldbkd. Princeton, Kentucky. A BAD POLICY. One of our exchanges has a pernic ious habit of characterizing any nomi nee in whose candidacy it is opposed as •‘young.” Such a course is bad policy —and bad politics. Some of the great est men the past few centuries have produced reached fame at an early age. For instance, Napoleon was a lieuten ant at sixteen. At nineteen the war career of George Washington common ced, while Abraham Lincoln was hut twenty-three when he began to achieve notoriety. At nineteen JJyron gained great fame as a writer, while Bryant's “Thanatopsis” gave him a reputation at twenty-two. Charles Sumner was an able jurist at twenty-three, Willi;*m MvKitiloy iet*o tlmn twenty six when he commenced his leadership and was made county attorney, Shakespear was twenty-live when his life work was lirst noticed. John McLean was elec ted a mem her of Congress at twenty eight, Daniel Webster received the same honor at the age of thirty, while much of Noah Webster’s greatness in the journalistic held was noticed when he was but thirty. Hence, it may be seen that to characterize a man as an infant because youth may be in his favor, is liable to work him good instead of the evil iutended.—Loveland Reporter NO MISTAKE. In the Humiliating of .lolm Jj. Mes erve tor District Attorney I he people of Fremont county indeed made no mis take, but have done tiie right tiling at the right time. If elected, and there is no valid reason why he should not be, the atTairs of the people, through the courts, will he administered fairly, effi ciently and successfully. Having a life time acquaintance with Mr. Meserve we are warranted in speaking very plainly and with certainty of his ability, merit and worth. Although a mail comparatively young in years, he is a deep and thorough student, a man of sterling character, great ability and un questioned honesty. In his legal prac tice he has always been very successful because of his thorough study and close appreciation to the matter in hand. As a Republican and a devotee to the prin ciples of the grand old party, Jie has never wavered, being born and raised in that fold, and to-day stands as an exponent by hiß liberal views, generous nature and genial courtesy, of the possi bility of the youth of America. The people of that district will make no mistake in electing him to this posi tion, for by his own untiring effort, his natural ability and native shrewdness he has made a success in the practice of law that would flatter many an older attorney.— Walsenburg World. Democrats and Populists who are dissatisfied with the combination forced upon them last Saturday, are invited to consider tile candidates offered them on the Eagle and Dove 'tickets. The next best thing to tilling the offices with the men you want from your own party is to elect the best men available and yon certainly can And no better men than offered on the Republican ticket. Another Klonkike liar lias landed and the daily papers are full of his ex travagant reports. The gymnasium of the Y. M. C. A. will be opened next week. As it is the only place in town where young men may receive systematic training of their physical powers, it should be liberally patrouized. Claeses will be opened for bnsiuess men and ladies. There is not a man or woman in town who would uot be much better off physically and mentally for spending from three to six hours each week in moderate gym nastic exercises. The cost is very small and e is no reason why the classes should not be large. 2>ome who talk a great deal about the scarcity of gold and of a money famine might do well to inform themselves on a lew points .Last week a party in San Francisco asked the government to exchange notes for dI,OJU,(XAJ in gold. The government deciiued. Then the party offered to pay the express charge ou the gold and later, to pay a premium for the notes, but both these proposi tions were likewise refused. The treas ury lias ail the gold it wants. Fay uieiits for exports are now beginning to come in from Europe aiid even from Australia, whither considerable wheat lias been shipped. It is plain that gold can be had easily in exchange for desired commodities. SPECIAL SALE.

Interest in the 50-Mile I'lirmiit Knee Grows Hourly as the Hay fur the Event Draws Near. Bubbling over witli intense enthus iasm! Such seems to be the condition of the CaQou City cycling world. The occasion of all this commotion is the Fifty-Mile Pursuit Bicycle Race which takes place to-morrow-. When one con siders that twenty of our fleetest riders will be in competition with each other, and that two of Cafion City’s most prominent and influential citizens will captain the teams, is it any wonder that a tidal wave of interest over-rides our fair city? The business houses will close shortly after the noon hour and our populace will turn out by the hun dreds to witness the event. Everyone will be there—the old man with the crooked staff, the aged mother with the tottering step, the artisan, the sweet heart and love; all, all, will be there. As the grand stand privileges are limited tickets should be procured at a seasonable hour and thereby s ive yourself no end of annoyance and vexa tion. The tickets are 25 cents each. For Sale.
