RETURNED FROM PLEASANT TRIP TO TEMPLE CANON Percy Othus, Earl Rundahl, Forest Snyder. Joe Mink and Selma Davis returned home Thursday afternoon, from a pleasant camping trip'to Tem ple canon, where they went for an outing last Saturday. They took ad vantage of the spring vacation in the public schools for their excursion and enjoyed it greatly, indeed, it is un certain whether they would have re turned so soon if their commissary had not given out. The fact that people are able to camp with such comfort in the mountains here at this season of the year is an eloquent com mentary on the splendid character of our winter climate. COMMENDABLE ENTERPRISE OF EAST CANON CITY The people of East Canon are to be complimented for their civic spirit and public enterprise. Not only have they sanded their roads until they have the best driveways in the com munity, but they have begun the work of erecting neatly painted and let tered guideboards bearing the names of the various streets and avenues of the village, a bit of municipal gener osity that is sure to evoke favorable comment on the part of the public. East Canon was the pioneer in the weed cutting movement, and its in fluence in that respect has extended to all parts of the community. Its ex ample in the matter of guideboards at the street intersections is by no means the least of its enterprises and might be imitated to good advantage by other communities not a thousand miles from Canon City. The Daily Record is pleased to commend this latest evi dence of civic pride on the part of East Canon and expresses the hope that it will be emulated by other sub urban communities PLANS FOR DECORATION DAY OBSERVANCE CONSIDERED At the regular meeting of the mem bers of Greenwood Post No. 10, G.

LIKELY TO BE LARGE NUMBER OF BIDDERS FOR WORK Chief Engineer O’Brien of the new waterworks system made a trip up into the Royal Gorge Thursday with a prespective bidder for the con struction of the work, the first that has gone over the route of the pro posed pipe line for the purpose of making a personal Inspection of the character of the undertaking. As the work on the plans and speci fications, which are now being drawn in the engineer’s office, proceeds It is believed that there will be many visitors here to inquire into the propo sition. The indications are that there will be no lack of bidders and that a con tract can be obtained upon terms fa vorable to the city. Mr. O’Brien was given sixty days by the city council in which to complete his surveys and formulate plans and specifications for the building of the contemplated wat erworks system and mrythlaig will be In readlppSs for the : awarding of the contract by ’May Ist. The intention is to hang the pipe line to the wall of the Royal Gorge for a considerable distance by means of iron hooks fastened Into the gran ite and limestone formation. In other places it will be burowed into the overhanging rock, for which a lot of blasting will be required. The pipe line will come down the south bank of the river until a point nearly op posite the upper end of the grade of the old state ditch where it will cross the river on a steel viaduct resting on concrete foundation. The pipe line will cross the river at an elevation of from ten to twelve feet above the ordinary flow of water for the purpose of avoiding the pos sibility of a washout from floods. The grade of the old state ditch will be used for carrying the pipe line through the lower portion of the Royal Oorgs. Three or tout short tunnels will hate to be made if the plans of the engi neer are adopted without change. A Twenty-Years Sentence. "I ktn fut NMftoM a twutf tut haaM. aaatanea.

Richard Wagner, - the great composer, said: “The human voice is really the foundation of all music: and whatever development of the art, whatever the boldest combination of a composer, or the most brilliant ex ecution of a virtuoso, in the end they must always return to the standard set by vocal music." It was the Intention of the editor to write today on recent vocal per formances in our city, such as the singing of the artists with the orches tra and the tenor and basso with the Dunbars, but he has changed his mind. Musical criticism has interest and value for a comparatively small num ber of people. All people, however, have voice, and use It much and for the most part, use It very badly. Re ference is not had here to singing, but to that other, more common use of voice called speech. Before song can be, speech is. Let us therefore take up first, the human voice in speech. In the "Autocrat of the Breakfast table,” Dr. Holmes speaks of the i "echoes of certain voices" and of their effect upon him. He Bays: “Our peo ple have not generally agreeable voices. Common among us are voices j at once thin and strenuous; acidulous enough to produce effervescence with alkalis and stridulous enough to sing duets with katydids. I think our con versational soprano, as sometimes overheard, in loud, strident speech, would not be among the allurements the old enemy would put in requisi tion were he getting up a new tempta tion.” * a a Recall the speaking voices of your friends and include your own in the ( consideration, and think bow they are. Are they "thin and strenuous?" Acidulous? Hard and sharp enough to "sing duets with katydids?" “Loud and strldgent?” see Of Annie Laurie, the poet said, "Like winds In summer sighing, her voice Is low and sweet.” Shakespeare, describing the voice of a woman, said: "It was ever soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing in woman." Dr. Holmes said: “I never heard but two voices in my life that fright ened me by their sweetness. They made me feel sb if there might be constituted a creature with such .-.a chord In her voice to some string in another's soul, that, if she but spoke, we would leave all and follow her, though it were Into the jaws of Ere bus.” The two voices Dr. Holmes referred to as frightening him by their sweet ness were those of German women. He declares that "such a voice could not have come from any Americanised human being.” (An exaggeration, surely!) see "Sharp business habits, a lean soil, independence, enterprise and east winds are not the best things for the larynx. Still you hear NOBLE VOICES among us; but ask the first person you meet a question, and ten to one, there is a sharp, metallic matter-of business clink in the accents of the answer.” Of Widow Vaughn's daughter Polly, the author of Darrell says it was "something in her voice that had first appealed to Trove.” Of Darrell, the old clock tinker, It was said, “He read the poems, his voice sounding the noble mnslc of the lines.” Longfellow required the same of the readers: "Then read from the treasured volume The poem of thy choice; And lend to the rhyme of the poet The beauty of thy voice.” —(The Day Is Done.) j Irving speaks of vblces in speech as. “melting,” “thin and piping,” “exqui site.” frigid." • so "T7>e voice that like a bell Rang thrilling with a music sweat and wild And Joyous as the life of a child.” —(Celia Thaxter's Gwendolen.) "Gone is the beautiful beloved voice that spake that blessing In the vanished years; yet • • • still she hears the tender tones that made bar heart rejoice.” (Benediction, same poet.) "How dear your voice that's low and clear.” Her sonnet, "Sweet.” The three following from Bryant's "An Indian Story, Hunter's Serenade and Damsel of Peru, respectively: "A song of his maid of the woods and rocks, with her bright black eyas and her long black locks, and voice like the music of rilla” see "With thy sweet smile and silver voice." e ea "And sweetly rang her silver votee.” ea e "Her voice changed like a bird’s, there grew more of the music and leas of- the words.” -j- (Brownian's Plight of the Duchess ) it '4 a "There might be heard the grass of Ood la every word which Peter auM or sang,” 1— (BhsMsye Mar Sell the Third.) see Is "MeaaUsd sod Helen” (earns as 11 ===== _ ==»!!■ lU ■ jjv II ; ; 9 Young Men’s Clothes Ederheimer, Stein Sc Co. - Makers HERE are two of our Spring styles you’ll find where ever good fellows get together.

In Tennyson's Holy Orail, Ambro ses tbe monk says to Blr Perclvals, the Pure, “Thee, when thou earnest— such a courtesy spake through the limbs and In the voice—l knew for one of those who eat In Arthur’s hall."

If rightly used, (be humaif voice Is an Instrument ca pable of exerting powerful Influence. Very few of us voice well. Every voice Is capable of Improvement, and therefore, ought to be Improved. How this may be done, with espe cial reference, still, to the speaking voice, will be the theme of the Mes sages later.

COAL MINES IN FREMONT NOT HALF DEVELOPED The coal mines of Fremont county have only been scratched as far as actual production of tonnage Is con* cerned. The Rockvale mine has prob ably been developed more than any other In the oounty, but operations there hare hare been confined merely to one rein. There are Are known reins of good coal In this county, and this was proven la development work at the property of the Great Western Coal company, at Heath ton, near Chandler, but the company Is said to he guarding their respective depths as a secret But the fact that It has been proven that this section of the county Is underlaid with several veins, nv>r» than proves that the coal bus iness In this section In reality la not fairly begun. The Coal Creek, Rock vale and Fremont mines are all work ing on the same vein and It Is estimat ed that there Is enough coal In this particular vein within the confines of the borders of the land owned by the operating companies to last for the next fifteen or twenty years.
