In spite of the storm the Lincoln
Park school house was filled by the
friends of the eighth grade graduates
of 1909. The best of it was that all
lelt themselves repaid for the effort
required to attend. The class render
ed a program that was high grade
both in character and performance,
Nearly half a score of them require
special mention. If any such course
should be risked, the list should pos
sibly begin with the name of Rosa
James and should certainly contain
that of Maude Barnes, Ida Barnes,
Elsie Scearce, Bessie Chase, Mildred
Kittell, Paul Black and Mark Entorf.
It has been several years since Lin
coln Park has had a chance to know
how good a program its schools can
provide and last night’s experience
shows that in spite of its limitation
to the grades, it still shows powers
that are highly creditable even when
compared with higher schools.
The invocation w r as by the Rev. S.
F. Entorf, the instrumental music was
furnished by the South Canon high
school orchestra. One of the class
features of the program was a class
song that pleased. Another was the
class prophecy, by Mildred Kittle, in
which she show r ed that it is possible
to construct a prophecy so that It
will be interesting to the audience as
well as to those whose fate is settled
(?) by it.
The graduates are: Ida Barnes,
Paul Black, Philip Bloxhem, Della
Davis, Mark Entorf. Mary Mayworth,
Eddy Irwin, Rosa James, Mildred
Kittell, Louis Litz, Elsie Scearce,
Bernice Smith, Cecil Smith, Emmet
Sullivan, Bessie Chase, and Forest

During the spring and summer of
1858, a rumor spread through the
country that gold had been discov
covered on the eastern slope of the
Rocky Mountains. The story was that
several Georgia miners, on their way
to California, had halted at the mouth
Cherry creek, and as a consequence of
discovering indications of gold, de
cided to give up their original inten
tion and return to Georgia for the
purpose of organizing a party of suffi
cient size to afford protection against
the Indians and to obtain supplies.
This country was then known only
as the Pike’s peak region. Governor
Denver took much Interest in the mat
ter, for although the new Eldorado
was 700 miles distant, with the des
olate plains intervening, yet the en
tire country at the period mentioned
was included in the territory of Kan
He had in his office a large map on
which he had marked out a new ter
ritory. christening it Shoshone, which
took In part of Kansas. Nebraska,
and New Mexico and the bounderles
which he had then drawn came very
nearly what now includes the state
of Colorado. The new gold country,
in fact the whole 700 miles . was laid
down on the map as Arapahoe county.
At length a party was organized
to proceed to Pike’s Peak to make
explorations, seventeen men being en
rolled. the governor appointing out
of this party county commissioners,
with the object, upon their arrival,
of the organizing of the county of
Arapahoe, the only Inhabitants of
which were buffalo and Indians.

Ned Wynkoop. who had barely ar
rived at manhood, received the com
mission of sheriff, while a probate
i judge and county commissioners were
1 selected. The party was provisioned
for a year, and upon leaving Topeka,
the place of rendezvous, in the fall
of *SB. took the most southern or Ar
kansas river route, being partly over
the famous Santa Fe trail. Not one of
the party had ever crossed the plains
and at that time such an adventure
was supposed to be exceedingly haz- a
ardous but the party felt an excite
ment and exhilaration that precluded
any sense of disaster. Buffalo and In
dians were abundant. With one or two
exceptions the party found plenty of
water and grass. Thousands of wild
Indians of the Kiowa. Comanche. Ara
pahoe and Cheyenne tribes were pass
ed without molestation and the near
est approach to any troublt was upon
an occasion when the right was un
questionably upon their side.
While*at Council Grove, which was
then the outpost of civilization, one
of the party exchanged a horse for a
Mexican mule with a Kaw Indian
whose tribe occupied a reservation
there. Some 300 miles out of Council
Grove a large band of Kiowa and Co
manche Indians was met, seeing, the
mule, claimed It as belonging to one
of the Klowas. stating that It had been
stolen from them by the Kaw Indians.
One Dose for Coughs
Children cough at night? Give them Ayer’s Cherry Pec
toral. Often a single dose at bedtime will completely
control the cough. Good for any one with a cold or cough.
Good for easy cases, hard cases; good for acute cases,
chronic cases. Ask your doctor to teD you, honestly and
frankly, just what he thinks of this old standard remedy.

The rider of the nimal declining to
give It up. matters began to look ser

on a vote being taken, the majority
decided not to deliver over the animal.
This fact was communicated to the In

of displeasure, threatening gestures
and other evidences which Indicated
that the party was in danger of aome
However, they proceeded without
further demonstration, and nothing
more was seen of the Indiana that
night, but the next morning soon after
breaking camp the Indians caught up
again with the little party. Whether
they followed to forcibly take posses
sion of the mule or from the fact they
were traveling in the same direction
was never known. During the morn
ing an Indian rode up alongside of
New Wynkoop. who was well mount
ed. and challenged him to a race,
which was granted but while at full
speed and his horse a little lo advance

At the crack of the weapon a yell
broke from the Indian while a simul
taneous shout arose from his people
in the rear, who immediately began to
circle round the party of seventeen
whites. Wynkoop returned to where
his opponent In the race had stopped
and began to explain by signs that the
shooting was an accident while the
remainder of the party were forming
the wagons In a circle preparatory to
meeting any trouble that might be
brewing. The Indian who had nearly
been shot was sensible enough to see
that It had been an accident, and af
