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

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

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

season spent in Denver with nothing
but pleasure in return.
Fremont county will probably yet

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

Debs were our emperor V
“You may talk about the rich get

and to-day are worth from 82,000 to

Abcolutoly Pure
(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.
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
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.

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

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

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

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.

been received. Come boys, faintheart
