INTERESTING SEATTLE LETTER Seattle, Wash.. April 6, 1#0». Hditor Canon City Record: Dear Sir: Herewith ia a abort »tory carrying a truthful statement of the condition of the Alaska-Youkon- Pacific exposition which we trust you may find it of sufficient news value to warrant its publication: The straight amusement feature of the Exposition will be beyond any thing yet brough together; in Chicago is was the “Midway;” in St. Louis it was the “Pike;” at Seattle it will be the “Pay Streak,” and on it will be the fun-making devices of every na tion. The Turnpike Village, a feature at all expositions will occupy almost twice the space of that of any other fair has given is all ready. The Spanish theatre, the Igarote village, the Baby Incubators, the Historic battle between the Monitor and the Merrimac will all be on “Pay •treak”, to say nothing of the scores •t other high class amusements. In the general plan of architecture the exposition follows the French Renaissance. This applies to the manufactures, Agricultural, Mines, Fisheries and other structures form ing the central picture of the exposi tion, the buildings are grooped about the cascades and geyser, basin the main decorative features and the U. 8. government buildings complete the scheme. Federal structures are a pleasing combination of French and Spanish Renaissanse styles and the great dome in the main government build ing is the architectural climax. The Foresty building will be the largest log house ever built and about the front of the structure will be 124 logs each 40 high and containing 6000 feet in board measure. The weight of «ach one is estimated at 60,000 lbs. TTie logs used in the exterior of the building are being left in the rough. While those used in the interion will have the bark removed. The home of the Artie Brotherhood is typical of the houses in Alaska and the north of Finland and is built of logs. The landscape feature about this building represent gardens seen in the north. The structure to be oc cupied by the Japanese and Chinese will be strictly oriental in general character. On the "Pay Streak” many of the structures will follow Japanese ar chitecture and the entrance to the gaity boulevard Japano-Alaskan, so called because the main arch consists of Totem Poles supporting curved Pagota roofs. Surrounding the exposition is a forest and much of the natural ven dure has been left. The exposition grounds will be well lighted. Thousands of lights will be used in the illumination of the build ings. On the manufacturers and ag ricultural buildings will be •> total of 17,000 lights of the exterior decora tions and it requires more than 5,000 each to outline all the mines and Fisheries buildings. On the fine arts b lilding will be 4,000 globes and the auditorium will require 5,000 lights. In the geyser basin are more than 1,000 lights and 16,000 will be U3ed in the electrical decorations under water about the cascades illuminating the falls with the colors of the rainbow. Twenty-six hundred men are hard at work putting the finishing touches on the buildings and grounds of this number six hundred and fifty are engaged on the group of buildings under construction of the U. S. gov ernment. and the remainder upon such of the state buildings as are now finished and upon the elaborate scheme of landscaping, gardening, etc., which is now down to its last de tails. The Alaska and Philliplnes build ings were the first completed by the government and an excellent Idea of the marvelous exhibit of the North land is to had. The Phillipine exhibit is not yet in the city but is close to the j»ort on two government trans ports. The Hawaiian building is Complete save some of its ornimentations of plaster staff and May Ist will see the exhibit in place with the excep tion of tile pineapple fields which will not be planted until a short time be fore the opening date. This is onlya mere skech of the grounds as we havn’t had time to look it over thoroughly as they cover 280 acres. Hoping this will be of some interest to the many readers of the Record. We can assure you that any individ ual of Canon wishing a change and a rest this is the place to come. The street cars will get the change and the hotels will get the rest. Any Information during the life of the fair you wish we will gladly give aa we are in a position to do so. Truly yours, 8. HOWARD E. E. TATTON WILL BE BROUGHT HERE FROM PUEBLO ON THE CHARGE OF FORGERY J. N. Nash, who is charged in con junction with a paroled convict by the name of Wajker, of forging the name of Mr. Fisher of the Fisher-Dempsey Construction company to an order by means of which he was given credit for a couple of weeks board and lodging at the “Glenrock” boarding house, conducted by Mrs. Silcox, at 611 Main street, is under arrest in Pueblo at the instance of the authori ties here.

Wright of 414 River street, left for Salt Lake City this af ternoon in response to a message an nouncing the very serious illness of her granddaughter, Helen Snyder, whose condition is such as to cause considerable apprehension on the part of her parents. The unfortunate girl is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Snyder, formerly of Cripple Creek. During the absence of Mrs. Wright her home will be occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Egbers. MADE QUICK RUN FROM PORTLAND TO CANON CITY IN AN AUTOMOBILE Mose Griffeth of Portland made an automobile run from that place to Canon City this morning, a distance of about sixteen miles, in seventy-five minutes, which ‘was very good time considering the snowstorm that pre vailed and the unusually muddy con dition of the public roads. Mr. Grif feth is a juryman in the district court and did not want to incur the dis pleasure of the judge by being late. STEEL GANG AT WORK ON PENROSE RAILROAD General Manager Cogan has a gang of 40 men camped at Beaver and started today laying steel on the Pen rose rairoad. This work will be push ed to a rapid completion and June first will see regular service of three trains dally in and out of Penrose. Contractor McDowell will have the grade completed the entire seven miles by the tenth of May. The won derfully short time that it will take to complete this line from the time it was started, only again proves that the Beaver Land Co. does things when it begins operations. SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS SUPPER A PLEASANT AFFAIR An extremely pleasant affair was the six o’clock supper given at the First Presbyterian church Friday ev ening in honor of the members of the senior class of the Sunday school and heir immediate friends. Covers were laid for nearly a hundred guests and the menu and service left nothing to lie desired. At the conclusion of the dinner the company adjourned from the dining room to the parlors of the church where the remainder of the evening was spent in social enjoy ment. An interesting feature of the program was the presentation by Rev. Thomas of a handsome rocking chair to Dr. Allen Bell, teacher of the class. >n behalf of its members.

THE CANON CITY RECORD. THURSDAY, APRIL ag, ’og SOUTH CANON HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS ENJOY A TRIP TO FLORENCE The chemistry class of the S. C. H. S., in company with Professor Warner and wife, took a tally-ho ride to Florence yesterday afternoon, and were granted the privilege of thor oughly inspecting the refining and wax works of the United Oil Co.’s plant. They were conducted through by Dr. F. E. Knock, who showed the class every attention imaginable and proved his thorough knowledge of all the processes connected with the re fining of petroleum. Dr. Knock is an experienced chemist. educated at Goettingen, Germany, and is making good use of his training as superin tendent of this most interesting and important industry. To any who have never been through such a plant every step discloses new and instruc tive applications of chemistry and physics.

R. Kennedy’s court here this morning on the complaint of Matt Mustar, who charges them with assault. After a conference be tween Assistant District Attorney Or ion Locke and Judge Schweigert. counsel for the defendants, the trial of the case was set for ten o’clock next Thursday morning. The com plainant alleges that Berchin and his wife beat him over the head with a shotgun; an allegation that was ’testi fied to by a number 6f ugly cuts and bruises about his cranium. In view of the fact that the gun was not loaded it is probable that the case will be finally disposed of in Kennedy’s tri bunal. A GOOD MANY OF THE RURAL SCHOOLS HAVE CLOSED FOR THE YEAR A considerable number of the rural schools of Fremont county have already adjourned for the summer vacation and others will do so dur ing the next ten days or two weeks. Among those that have closed the year’s work are the Upper Beaver Creek schools; the two Glendale schools; the Beaver Park school; the Brookslde and Brewster schools and the three Hardscrabble Creek schools. All of the schools in the western part of the county will close after next week. In all essentials the school year now ending has been very suc cessful in this county. In consider ation of the excessive snowfall and unusual cold weather experienced during the winter months the attend ance of pupils was remarkably good. What Kind of an “Office?" Once upon a time a child who was asked on an examination paper to define a mountain range, replied, “A large-sized cook stove.” The same method of reasoning seems to go with older growth. A recent examination paper at the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale contained 'he ques tion. “What is the office of the gastric juice?” And the answer on the paper read: ‘ The stomach.” The Weekly Record Is $125 a year.

FELLER WRITES OF HOLY TEMPLES About the first sound I heard when the train stopped was some one cal ling “Felter!” so I was soon in a place of welcome. My first excur sion was to test my memory of loca tion by passing through the intricate windings from the Joppa to the Da mascus gates, which I performed without missing a corner. There is a new Jerusalem, built without the walls, that is about as large as the old. The whole contains perhaps. 90,000 inhabitants of whom two-thirds are Jews. Half of the balance are Christians of various creeds. The old city is about a half mile square and is surrounded by a wall from 30 to 70 feet high. Some of this wall may be Jebusite, some of David’s time, but most of it much more recent. It surrounds four small hills or mountains, the two to the South, Zion on the West and Moriah on the east, being of the greatest his torical interest. I found our consul, Mr. Wallace, to be a friend of some of my friends, including our Dr. Cannon. So he kind ly allowed me to take a party to visit the old temple grounds, and sent his Cavasse with us. who also furnished us the military escort, which is necessary. The temple grounds approximate one quarter mile square on Mt. Mor? iah, the southeast hill. Extensive substructures were constructed to produce a level platform for the tem ple, its courts and surroundings on the hill is somewhat abrupt. Of course, nothing now remains of Solo mon’s, or even of Herod's temple. The site is occupied by the beautiful mos que of Omar. This building is octagonal, the lower walls of marble, the upper walls covered with porcelain (fayance.) The huge dome. 55 feet In dlamerter, and the most symmetrical I have ever seen, is covered with lead. The mos que is not in good repair, but the in terior is very interesting. The lower walls are incrusted in marble, the up per and the dome, of Mosaic. The windows are colored glass. In the cen ter and projecting four feet above the floor, is the bare summit of Mt. Moriah, where Abraham came to offer up Isaac, and where the Holy of Holy stood, and from which Mohammed ascended to heaven. There Is a cis tern or cave underneath which may have had to do with the temple ser vices. Solomon’s stables are great substructures, pillars, arches, etc., of the temple platform. Spanning the narrow street, just north of the temple grounds, is the Ecce Homo arch —a triumphal arch — between Pilate’s judgment hall and palace. Here the trial and sentence of Christ took place. I cannot go into deatils in regard to this well, authen ticated place, which is full of Interest. Half of the old Roman triple triumph al arch, the pavement, the public spuare, the underground passage to the temple area, and two rostrums can be seen here. I revisited the place and the sisters assisted me to study it comprehensively. The Pool of Bethesda has been discovered and identified since I was here before. It has been entirely ex cavated. It has five porches as men tioned in the gospels. There are two so-called Golgothaß —one inside and one outside of the present city wall. That Inside is occupied by the very extensive church of the Holy Sepulcher, and Is held in greatest reverence by Roman. Greek and American Christians. It Is a very extensive pile, and within it is shown nearly everything connected with the crucifixion and resurrection of our Ivord. Where the cross stood, where Mary beheld the annointing stone, and greatest sanctity of all. the Holy Sep ulcher, a tiny room with low door, hung with numerous lamps, contain ing a marble -covered sarcophagus. Many thousand of Russian and other pilgrims visit the place monthly, and one cannot but respect their devout faith and expression of reverence. They kneel and kiss every’ sacred ob ject. It Is more than half pathetic when one considers their poverty— poor, but warm clothing, coarse boots, plain food: weary tramps. The church Is such a conglomeration of build ings that It baffles description or pic ture. It, strange to say. is very poor ly kept, and sadly needs the painter and deeortaor.—Times.

Gastritis or Catarrh of Stomach; It doesn't matter —take your stomach trouble right with you to your Phar macist and ask him to open a 60-cent case of Pape’s Dlapepsln and Ist you eat one 22-grain Triangule and see If within five minutes there Is left any trace of your stomach misery. The correct name for your trouble is Food Fermentation —food souring; the Digestive organs become weak; there Is lack of gastric Juice; your food Is only half digested, and you become affected with loss of appetite, pressure and fullness after eating, vobltlng. nausea, heartburn, griping In bowels, tenderness in the pit of stomach, bad taste In mouth, consti pation. pain In limbs, sleeplessness, belching of gas. biliousness, sick headache, nervousness, diziness and many other similar symtomß. If your appetite Is fickle, and noth ing tempts you. or you belch gas or If you food lies like xi lump of lend on your stomach, you can make up your mind that at the bottom of all this there la but one cause- fermentation of undigested food. Prove to yourself, after your next meal, that your stomach Is ns good as any; thnt there la nothing really wrong. Stop this fermentation and begin eating what you want without fear of discomfort or miserv Almost Instant relief Is waiting for you. It Is merely a matter of how soon you take a little Dlapepsln. GIVEN A THIRTY DAYS JAIL SENTENCE BY JUDGE KENNEDY ON WEDNESDAY John and Edward Mooney, a couple of hoboes who came here a few days ago from were on Wednes day sentenced to thirty days In the county Jail for robbery. They were convicted of stealing threfe dollars and a half In cash, a shirt, a pair of overalls, a hat, several blankets, a razor and divers other articles from Edward Cahill, a Denver Sc Rio Grande man. Cahill furnished the Mooney brothers wflh board and lodging for a day or two and they re paid his kindness by robbing him. They succeeded In getting Cahill drunk, after which they took off most of his clothing and carried away most of his personal effects. The rob bers were arrested by Marshal T. H. Jeffries of Prespect Heights and tak en before Judge Kennedy who was provided with evidence In plenty to convict them. Iruipossible to be Well It is impossible to be well, simply impossible, if the bowels are constipated. You must pay attention to the laws of nature, or suffer the consequences. Undigested material, waste products, poisonous substances, must be removed from the body at least once each day, or there will be trouble. A sluggish liver is responsible for an immense amount of suffering and serious disease. Ask your doctor about Ayer’s Pills. He knows why they act directly on the liver. Tnwt SUCCESSFUL ORCHARD HEATING ON GAIL RANCH WEDNESDAY NIGHT The thirty-acre orchard on the Gail ranch on Beaver creek, now owned by the Beaver Land & Irrigation com pany. was the scene of a highly suc cessful heating test Wednesday night. There are two thousand heating pots on the place, but only half that num ber was used as the backward condi tion of the crops this year made It unnecessary to draw upon all of them for its protection. One thousand pots were lighted at midnight and they burned till 7 o'clock the following morning. With thirty-three po** to the acre the temperature was raised to twenty-eight degrees inside the heat ed zone and maintained at that point without difficulty. The thermometer regißtured a temperature of twenty three degrees outside the limits of the orchard What has become of the old fash ioned school teacher who used tbs rod?
