Y. M. C. A. MAKES FINAL DECISION ON STAR COURSE OF ENTERTAINMENTS Committee Met Last Evening and the Public Is Assured of a Fine Pro gram This Season The Y. M. C. A. star course commit tee met yesterday and decided defi nitely on a strong course of enter tainments to be given during the 1909- 10 season. A brief description of the five numbers follows: Otterbeing Male Quarteete and Bell Ringers, consisting of four men of rare musical talent which constitute one of the best male quartettes on the road. Aside from their splendid singing, they play over five dozen bells in a most excellent manner. Their bell ringing with humming accompa niment is most pleasing. Aside from singing second tenor, Mr. A. Rae Con dit whistles and does other clever things. M. W. G. Wells is the baritone and pianist, Mr. R. H. Richards the first tenor, and Mr. H. U. Eagle the basso and manager. We are sure this Is one of the strongest numbers ever presented to star course patrons in Canon City. Colonel G. A. Gearhart will be here this season with his “Footprints of the Centuries,” a lec ture second to none ever delivered here. “It is a complete, earnest and Instructive portrayal of the marvel ous progress of Christian civilisation. A fearless embodiment of truth, it is more—an unanswerable argument for God in history and the Christ In hu man achievements—a powerful mes £ggs from the lecture platform; let he be Christian or not.” Edmund Vance Cooke, well he is dealer in (and dealer out of) rime and reason, sense and sentiment, philosophy and phool ery. He recites funny verses in a funny way, songs of sentiment in an effective way, and every kind of verse In a clever way. Prominent critics compare Mr. Cooke’s work to Byrant, Whittier, Lowell, Stevenson, Riley, Field, Holmes, Twain, Hans Breitman, Tom Hood and Mrs. Wilcox. William Shakespeare and Carry Nation have so far been left out. By the way, Mr. Cooke has no particular desire to tell his own message in his own way. CONTRACTS FOR STEEL AND TIES AWARDED BY KANSAS-COLORADO ROAD The Kansas-Colorado Railroad Co. has been reorganized and its finances are reported to be in such condition that it can go to work immediately and carry out the promises of its pre decessors to the people of the Arkan sas valley. Steel and other material for the building of the first stretch of track, which will be between Pueblo and Turkey Creek, are said to have been ordered and the Kansas-Colo rado Construction company was on Monday formed to build the road. The completion of the project, which im plies the construction of a railroad, probably electric, from the entrance to the Royal Gorge down the Arkan sas valley to Dodge City. Kansas, will require the expenditure of many mil lions of dollars. The men who are now in charge of the enterprise have suc ceeded in placing a large bond issue and ample funds to carry out the work are said to be assured. L«ast year A. E. Hulit, the originator of the first company to take the proposition, constructed a grade for the roadbed COUNTY FAIR TO SURPASS PREVIOUS RECORDS The Fremont County Fair, to be held in Canon City on the Bth, 9th and 10th of September, will be thoroughly representative of the agricultural life of the upper Arkansas valley and in vites comparison with any similar ex hibit to take place in Colorado this year. The display of fruits of all kinds will be equalled only by the showing made at the State fair in Pueblo as nearly two hundred varieties of ap ples alone are grown in the Canon City district, to say nothing of peaches, pears, grapes and scores of field and garden products that are unrivalled in size and quality this side of California. Although 'but an inci dent of the fair the fruit exhibit will be worth going a long way to see. The live stock department promises to be unusually complete and many •■tries of draft and standard bred horses, cattle, sheep, hogs. etc., hare already bees made. The poaltry aad He will be right here in Canon City to please a great big audience some time this season. The Midland Jubilee singers, one of the strongest colored organizations on the road. They con sist of five men and two women, and that makes a jubilee outfit. Mr. Buckner, who was so well received here last winter, and whose troup Is so universally satisfactory every where, informed the writer that Prof. W. A. Hann and his Midland Jubilee singers are high class artists. When the manager of one colored organiza tion gives the manager on another similar organization such a hearty recommend there must be some real reason for it. They are a well train- , ed, long experienced combination and will make good. They cost more mon ey than any musical in last year’s course. Dr. Edwin Southers, the man from the southland (Florida), will give us all of “His Satanic Majesty" we desire. His theme will be “If I Were the Devil." He says: “I would not wilfully or maliciously cause my fellow being one sigh of grief, one touch of misery, or one throb of pain, but I would wish to destroy those dev ils, hypocrisy, selfishness, greed, vice, slander, pride, falsehood, etc, etc., which cause humanity to become in human. Therefore I strike to kill." Judge J. B. Latimer, of Amerlcus, Georgia, says: “Have heard Dr. Ed win Southers. For depth and delive ry consider him superior to Gov. “Bob" Taylor, whom I have heard.” The management most heartily recommends this course, and believe it is the best value for the price that has ever been offered Canon City peo ple. The price of admission will be, adult, season ticket, $1.50; student SI.OO. The city and surrounding com munity will be systematically can vassed before long. Be prepared to sign for tickets. They will be de livered later, at which time collec tion will be made. from Pueblo to Turkey Creek twenty five miles northwest of Pueblo. The Kansas men who have control of the enterprise are headed by former Con gressman Bowersock. An order for 3,025 tons of seventy pound steel rails to build the track from Pueblo to Turkey Creek has been awarded to an eastern manufac turer and a contract for the necessary ties has been made with a Texas firm. The ties are to be chemically treated to preserve them from decay and are to be delivered immediately. The orig inal order for the steel rails was giv en to the Colorado Fuel & Iron com pany, but it was subsequently learned that it could not make the deliverey within the next thirty days and it was placed with an eastern firm that was able to meet the requirements of the situation. Under the terms of the company’s charter the road must be completed and in operation to the Turkey Crec’.c quarries by the last of June next year and into Canon City before the end of December following. pet stock section will be extensive and will show many of the finest strains in the state. Everv foot or available space in the poultry hous* will be taken up by exhibitors. The prizes offered in the speed ring are generous and will attract many of the most famous track horses in the state. The cowboy features of the ring, including racing and rough rid ing of all kinds, has its only counter part in the “Frontier Day*’ festivities at Cheyenne. Thursday, September 9th, will be “Fruit Day” when ten thousand pounds of apples, peaches, grapes, etc., will be given away. The exhibits will be comprehensive and the enter tainment first-class, in fact, the Fre mont County fair this year will be one of the most notable of Its kind In the Rocky Mountain region. It will he an exposition of the farm and gar den products, industries and sports of the Arkansas valley. Mrs. J. A.

The men who stand at the head of these plants are recognized as authori ty throjghout the mining world as the most expert In their line, and treatises on mines, mining and ma chinery written by some of our manu facturers are so exhaustive and com prehensive that they are used in some schools In connection with text books in the study of the above subject. Is It any wonder that Colorado mining ma chinery should rival machinery from other parts of the country in the mar kets of the world? The number of patents on new and improved Colora do machinery demonstrates beyond a I doubt that our manufacturers are keeping pace with the onward march of progress In other lines of mechan ical invention. Our goods find a market in nearly every civilised country, large and con tinuous shipments exported to South America, Australia. New Zealand, China, Japan, England, France. Ger many and South Africa, attest the su perior merit of Colorado machinery.

Their decision is as follows: Catcher—Walt Schannel. Pitchers—Purnell and Turner. First base —Bower. Second base —McKee. Third base —Duncan. Short stop—Ryder. Left field—Ben Schanuel. Center field—Raynolds. Right field —Van Patten. Substitutes: Kissinger, Ong and Sturgis. These men will report at the High school grounds Monday evening for practice. It Is imperative that every man be present, for team work and batting practice are the two things most lack ing. Each evening next week should see these men at real base ball, for the boys from Colorado Springs will be a hard proposition. They are com ing for a double-header, and surely they ought not to go home with both games to their credit. The election of a captain for the first team will take place Monday ev ening. This will be done by the men who now constitute the team. Second team men and others of the S. S. A. L. teams who desire to play ball are asked to report each evening next week. Interesting games will be played. Spectators are welcome. NEW WATERING TROUGH AT SEVENTH AND MAIN From Saturday's Dally.
