LITTLE DOUBT THAT THE ROAD CAN BE BUILT FOR THE AMOUNT ASKED FOR The Necessity for a First-Class Highway to the Top of the Royal Gorge Is Generally Conceded Its Construction a Matter of More Than Ordinary Interest to the People of Fremont County The friends of the good roads move ment in Canon City and Florence and they include practically everybody in two communities, should not allow their interest in the contemplated highway from the Arkansas valley to Colorado Springs to eclipse their in terest in the construction of the pro posed public highway to the top of the Royal Gorge. There is room for both enterprises, and, that they are badly needed, goes without question. There is a legislative appropriation for building the Colorado Springs road, but by no means sufficient to do the work on the lines laid down by its promoters, and an appeal will be made to the generosity of those most largely benefited to contribute in a financial way to thj undertaking. The Royal Gorge road will receive no assistance from the state, although all of the people of Colorado will be beneficiaries. Whatever is done in the matter of its construction must come from the people of Fremont county, who, of course, will reap the chief ad vantage from such a highway. That the taxpayers of Canon City and Florence are anxious for the building of a public road from a point near Three Mile Spring to Parkdale byway of the t of the Royal Gorge is a matter f record; the proposition having been indorsed in a petition filed with the county commissioners a couple of months ago. Everybody that has had occasion to make the trip to Parkdale on the north side of the river realizes the necessity for a radical improvement of the road, and the same will apply with added force in relation to the so called road to the top of the Royal Gorge, which is, in reality, little bet DIED AT HER HOME IN SOUTH CANON SUNDAY NIGHT FROM PARALYSIS Mrs. Sophia McElwee died at her home, 921 South First street, South Canon, at 11:30 o'clock Sunday night from paralysis, after a lingering ill ness, aged fifty-five years, nine months and twenty-seven days. Deceased was a native of New York state and came here from Nebraska about six years ago. She was a mem ber of the Presbyterian church and was in all respects a most estimable woman. Mrs. McElwee leaves, besides numerous relatives in other states, two sisters and an adopted daughter in Canon City to mourn her death. They are: Mrs. Ix>ttie B. McKenzie, Mrs. Ida A. Towns and Mrs. W. W. Merris, respectively. A brother, Hen ry T. Bisbee, residing in California, has notified the family of his desire to attend the obsequfbs and the funer al will not be held until 2 o’clock next Saturday afternoon. The remains will lie in state at the undertaking parlors of Hawley & Son throughout the week and may be viewed by the friends of the family at any time after Wednesday morning. The funeral service will be conducted ."by Rev. J. T. Thomas, followed by the Interment of the remains at Lakeside <cemetery. METHODISTS FREEZE UP CHRISTIANS SEVEN ABOVE Do you know why it turned out so -cool about six o’clock last evening? It was because the Methodist boys allowed their base ball thermometer to run down to “zero.” Yes. that is what they got against the Christian Sunday school. Those Christian fel lows had a little more ginger and boosted their thermometer up to sev en. That was not so bad for a cold evening. You see they warmed up a little. Seven above zero was the way the game closed. The Thompson class got the “zero,” and the Christ ians seven above. It was a good game too. Dr. K. C.

OMra, 118 Seetfe mt Street ter than a trail. It is very generally agreed • that a good public road will have to be built to the top of the Roy al Gorge before a great while and the belief is rapidly growing that the county commissioners should “do it now.” It is discreditable to the enterprise of the people of Fremont county that a first-class public highway to the top of the Royal Gorge is not now in ex istence. That its construction cannot be very much longer delaye ’ is as sure as anything in the future can be. The Daily Record has had occasion to state more than once during the last year or two that the beauty of the scene from the top of the Royal Gorge does not seem to be fully appreciated by the people of Canon City and of Fremont county otherwise they would see to it that it was made more ac cessible to the public. It has been pro nounced by tourists as affording one of the most magnificent mountain views on this continent and surprise has been expressed that it has been so long neglected. After making a somewhat exhaust ive study of the engineering features of the proposition County Surveyor Chas. L. Mitton is convinced that a fine public road can with prison labor be constructed to Parkdale via the top of the Royal Gorge with the $2,500 which the petitioners request the county commissioners to set aside for that purpose. The building of a splen did road to the top of the Royal Gorge is an enterprise that will enlist the sympathy and encouragement of every . taxpayer in Fremont county, and, it is hoped, that the long cherrished am -1 bition of the public in that respect 1 will soon become a reality.

PROPOSITION WILL BE TAKEN UP BY THE VARIOUS LODGES THIS WEEK Xo arrangements has yet been made by the various lodges and organiza tions in relation to a meeting place after the enforced abandonment of Elks hall at the end of next month. There are at the present time seven teen lodges, societies, clubs and other organizations which hold their meet ings in Elks hall, all of which will have to vacate at the first of July. A committee from these homeless or ganizations has been appointed to canvass the community with a view of finding a new meeting place, but as yet no conclusion has been reached in the amtter. Several propositions have been made, but none of them ac cepted. The question will be consider ed by three or four of the interested organizations this week and what ac :ion will be taken in the premises is problematical. The erection of a fra ternal -building has been suggested, but is not believed that it can be car ried out a* this time. A proposition to construct a second story on the build ing occupied by the Palace drug store and the Canon Grocery company has been rejected on account of the heavy rental it would imply.

Tried different remedies and doctors to no avail. Peruna was ad vised by friends. Instant relief expe rienced. Great gratitude to Peruna expressed. This, in brief, is a story that is repeated to us a great many time* every year. No one could be in touch with our vast correspondence for one month without being impressed with the sin cerity and truthfulness of these kind o l testimonials.
