Co Sixth and Main Canon City, Colo TWO SUNDAY EXCURSIONS TO BEATER PARK LAND Two parties of young men from Florence spent Sunday in Beaver Park picking out choice ten acre fruit farms. It was somewhat cold and snowy, but these young men work during the week and can only get off for such excursions in their own interest on Sunday. One party drove out to the Park starting at seven o’clock in the morn ing; the other party took a frosty ride in one of the irrigation company’s autos. A steaming hot dinner at camp No. 3 refreshed the young homeseeks, who afterwards continued their rambles until each had found a perfect tract of land in a location to suit him. Mr. Hill, the company’s sales agent, says he marked off and tagged as sold four 10-acre lots which were selected yesterday. • Y. M. C. A. OBSERVING ANNUAL WEEK OF PE AYER Throughout the United States, in deed In all countries of the world, the present week is being observed by the Young Men’s Christian Association as a week of prayer. At the local assoc iation parlors a prayer and devotional meeting is being held every day from 12:05 p. m. to 12:20, different men conducting the service each day. Of the 1,205 cities in North America above 4,000 population, 545 have as sociations, but 660, averaging 17,000 population, have none. The ten million dollars contributed to association buildings from 1901 to 1905 and the addded ten million dol lars since 1905, equaling in these six ; m Jap Rose ggf© (B|§% TOILET SOSP nr ITS FIVE STRONGEST POINTS ARB K9HTIt Is transparent so clear you can read through It.

Most of these millions are for large city association buildings. The men to administer the work are not forthcoming as rapidly as the mon ey for the buildings. There is great need, not so much for large numbers of men, as for men of capacity, leadership, vision, attrac tive personality, and abounding spiri tual life. Prayer should be offered that such men may be found and en listed in these larger opportunities now afforded in the city associations. Pray for the Field Department of the International committee and for the various state committees, res ponsible for the projection of the as sociation at its best into these un occupied fields. The great metropolitan cities such as New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, St Louis, Boston, Cleveland and Buffalo, while in the main well equipped, have problems, unique and increasingly complex, among them, those suggested in the single word "immigrant.*’ The leaders need special wisdom to meet these problems. PRESENTED HISTORIC FLAG TO STATE MUSEUM The following item from the Denver News of Wednesday will be of interest to our readers: “The first American flag to fly from a flagstaff in the city of Manila, after the American ocupation in 1898, has been donated to the state war relics museum by former Governor James H. Peabody. William H. Sweeney, Jr., adjutant of the First Colorado Infan try, United States volunteers, received the flag from Governor Peabody when the regiment passed through Canon City on its way to the Philippines. "When he placed it hands,” says Adjutant Sweeney, in a statement accompanying the flag, “I told the governor that if I came back I would bring the flag to him. On August 13, 1898, the date of the combined land and sea assault, on the city of Manila, this flag was in Camp Dewey in front of my tent, just outside the city of Manila. After the American occupation of this city on that date Colonel Hale expressed a desire to display the American flag over his headquarters, and that desire being expressed in my presence, I brought the flag to him, and it having been accepted, was dis played from the staff over his head quarters on the morning of August 14, 1898. It was subsequently returned to me, and by me was returned to Governor Peabody.” Colonel Ferguson’s relics have also been increased by the addition of an old English Bible bearing the date of 1728. It was printed at Oxford, and is yellowed by its years of service.” SHORT COURSE IN HORTICULTURE IN FEBRUARY The short course In horticulture, decided upon by the members of the Fremont County Horticultural Society last winter has been fixed for the week beginning February 10th, and will be held in the district court room. These short courses are conducted by the faculty of the state agricultural college and are to some extent at least provided for by the legislature, which at Its last session mads an ap prcpriatlon of something like $20,000 for that purpose. The proposed short coures to be held here will last a week and will be a school of scientific instruction in fruit growing and ought to enlist the interest and support of every orchardist in the Canon City district. It is hoped to organize a class of nearly two hundred members in order that the best results may be obtained from the course, which will take the place of the annual Institute^ A short course in horticulture was conducted at Fruita last year and proved so successful that at least three of them wil be held in that part of the state during the coming win ter under the same auspices. Hor ticulture is a calling that requires some scientific knowledge and it will be to the advantage of every fruit grower to avail himself o fthe tech nical expert instruction that may be had under the contemplated short course by the agricultural college. It is not every man that can afford the time and money to go to college for special Instruction. By the system referred to the college Is brought to the rancher. ASKS CO-OPERATION IN EIGHT FOR BETTER RATES Geo. J. Klndel of Denver, who for a ! number of years has been endeavoring ' through the courts to secure to the people of Colorado a cheaper and more equitable rate on freight and express from the east, has addressed a letter to the Canon City Merchants Associa tion asking the help and co-operation of that body in breaking down what he calls the “express shackles" of the shippers of this state. According to Mr. Kindel the people of Colorado are paying annually over one million and a half dollars excess freight and express charges on incom ing goods alone. A noteworthy fact is that Colorado common points, which embrace all points between Cheyenne Wyoming, and Raton, New Mexico, pay $4.00 per cwt expressage from Missouri river, or to Missouri river points, while the Pacific coast points are given a 50 cent rate for the same haul. In this case Colorado people are paying 700 per cent higher express rates. Mr. Kindel says the purpose of his agitation is to reduce express rates from Atlantic coast points to Colorado common points from $8.50 to $7.00 per cwt.; and from Pacific coast points to Colorado common points from $9.00 to $7.00 per cwt This will put us on a basis of St. Joe and other Mis souri river points. One of the anomalies of the express business is the fact that one has to pay $2.45 on an eleven pound package from Denver to London, while from London to Denver the rate is only »i.oo. ._ ANOTHER BIG FLOW OF WATER STRUCK IN WELL Florence, Nor. 13.—J. W. Yelton, who recently deepened bln well on his ranch near the mouth of Bight Mile creek 300 feet, has encountered another big flow of water at a depth of 304 feet. The water waa struck yesterday and a test by the bailer shows that the well will pump about' forty barrels an hour and that with this amount of water coming out of the well there will be no appreciable t difference In the extent of the body. The water now stands to within eighty feet of the top of the well, giving him ' more than 220 feet of water. The well Is to be equipped with pumping apparatus and a reservoir for storing the water wll be built later. A 100- barrel tank has been put in place and water wil lbe stored in it for the pres ent. Mr. Yelton purposes planting ten or fifteen acres to apples and small fruit and will put some of the trees and bushes out next spring. WILL CLEAN THE SETTLING BASINS OF DIRT AND MUD Superintendent of Waterworks Chas. W. Van Patten has had the water taken out of the setting basins at the pumping plant preliminary to remov ing the sediment that has accumulated during the last twelve or fifteen months. The silt In the bottom of the basin varies from two to three feet In depth and conveys an excellent idea of the impurities held in solution by the waters of the Arkansas river. It will be used for the purpose of filling in the low places at the City Park and in grading up the dykes surrounding the reservoirs. MAKES LIFE MISERABLE Troubles That Keep Half the Canon City Doctors Busy. Half of the prescriptions the Canon City doctors write are for troubles that result directly from a weakened stomach. Strengthen the stomach muscles, increase the secretion of gas tric juices and you will find that com mon afflictions—indigestion, with its headaches, dizziness, depression of spirits, spots before the eyes, nervous ness, sleeplessness and general debil ity—have been overcome. From now on build up the strength and health of the stomach with Ml-o na tablets. You will soon find your self strong and never know the mean ing of Indigestion. If Ml-o-na did not have an unusually curative effect in stomach disorders, it could not be sold on the guarantee given by Mitchell & Egbers to refund the money unless it does all that is claimed for it. They give an absolute unqualified guarantee with every 50- cent box of Ml-o-na that the money will be refunded unless the medicine cures. They take the whole risk, and you certainly can afford to get Ml-o-na from them o nthis plan. SOMETHING ABOUT PORCUPINES AND THEIR HABITS The capture of a large Canadian porcupine on Rudd avenue a day or so ago and its exhibition at the office of the Dally Record aroused much discussion in relation to the natural history of the somewhat interesting class of animals. Porcupines belong to the family hys tricldae and are characterised by an armature of spines, which, like those of the hedgehog, are, as to their struc ture. merely thick and strong hairs. The hystricidae are plentigrade, the front feet have four toes and a rudi mentary thumb, and the hind feet have five toes. The general aspect of the animal In heavy and pig-like and It has a grunting voice. The muzzle Is broad and blunt, the ears short and rounded, the Incisora smooth and large, two above and two below. The porcupine Is-one of the largest of ro dents, being from two feet to thirty inches In length and is a native of all five of the continents. The statement has frequently been made that porcupines have the power of throwing off their spines, or quills, by a voluntary act, launching them at their adversaries, but they possess no such faculty, although It Is possible that quills ready to come off may be detached In moments of excitement and fly a short distance with suffi cient force to be annoying to a pur suer. The porcupine's armor is strict ly defensive and It seeks to turn its back and thus the points of Itß spines to an enemy. It Is a solitary and nocturnal ani mal and la not often aeen by the hunter. It burrows In the ground and In cold weather becomes torpid. It feeds on roots, hark and other vegeta ble substances, sometimes committing great depredations In fields and gar dens. The spines, or quills, of the porcupine are used for various pur poses and have a certain commercial value. The animal Is chiefly sought on account of them, although Its flesh is eaten, and was brought to the mar ket of ancient Rome, acordtng to his torians. While porcupines are not very plen tiful In Colorado, they are occasional ly met with In all sections of the state, particularly in the vicinity of human habitation. Capt Rockafellow remarked to the writer recently that many years ago while In the moun tains with a party of friends he was driven by stress of circumstances to the necessity of eating a porcupine. He said that It was a pretty tough mor sel, btu had the effect of apeaalng his hunger. A Record Want Ad never goes beg glng for results.

Utf POWERS PARDON IS OVERRULED BY COURT Georgetown, Ky„ Nov. 13.—When the cane of Caleb Power*, charged with the murder of Senator Goebel fell called yesterday, It waa found that many of the Important defense wit nesses who were absent Monday and cuused a postponement of the trial were present and Commonwealth At torney Franklin after the roll call of i the witnesses promptly announced hlnr self ready. As soon as the announcement was made Major Owens, chief counsel for Powers arose and said: "Before the defense answers ready, we desire to offer as a plea of abatement the par don of the defendant by Governor W. 8. Taylor after the commission of ths crime.” Upon the request of Commonwealth Attorney Franklin this document was turned over to the attorneys for ths prosecution who retired to examine it. This is the same pardon which has been produced at all the former trials and which the courts have held invalid. Judge Morris overruled the motion for permission to file the plea and pardon after a vigorous objection by the prosecution, the court holding that the validity was not within the rights of that court. . The defense, however, scored a point in securing permission to make avowal of the pardon, thus getting that docu ment Into the record over the emphatic objection of the prosecution who was allowed Its exceptions. Considerable argument was held on 1 this point and then court adjourned until 2 o'clock, when the avowal with the proof was filed. Do you expect so much from your friends as to become unfair, unreus able and mean? * When It Is remembered how mmnr things a man would and does do for money, the wonder grows that all am not millionaires.
