The conference at the office of H.
S. Maddox yesterday afternoon be
tween the Canon City Business Men's
association and a commltlee from the
Odd Fellows lodge for the purpose of
formulating some sort of a campaign
looking to the location here of the
proposed Odd Fellows’ Home, was an
enthusiastic one and will result In
Canon City's becoming an active com
petitor for the contemplated Institu
tion. The members of the conference
were heartily in ravor of doing every
thing to bring the home here and to
that end adopted a resolution instruc
ting Mr. Maddox to write to the sec
retaries of the chambers of commerce
In towns in other states where such
homes existed and ascertain from
them what donations had been made
to secure their location. Such insti
tutions as the one in contemplation
by the Odd Fellows grand lodge of
Colorado exist in ten or a dozen of .
the states of the Union and it is be
lieved that valuable information may
be had by inquiring of the commer
cial bodies in the cities where they
are located in relation to the offers
made to secure them.

F. B. Wheelock, acting secretary of
the local Y.M.C.A., took about twen
ty of the playground boys on a picnic
today to the top of Fremont Peak. The
party started about 8:00 o’clock this
morning taking their lunches and they
will spend the day climbing the peak.
The boys of this city are enthusi
astic over the work of the playground
and many have shown their apprecia
tion of the fact by their attendance at
the meetings. Although the girls have
been invited to the playground activ
ities have accepted. Well direct
ed pla under a good supervisor is a
good thing for the boys and girls and
mothers should appreciated this move

The issue of Collier’s Weekly for
June 25th has a write-up and several
pictures and views taken as the
“middles” were going aboard their
training ships previous to their start
on the summer cruise. One of the
pictures is of a midshipman with suit
case in hand and other luggage strap
ped on his back and labeled “Off for

that institution, Karl Quinlan. It
is just a chance picture that was tak

has to say about the cruise:

our navy as well believes that the

for our officers and sailors.. Hence,
the training squadron of the mid- ■
shipmen at Annapolis will not hug

Steps are being taken to interest
capital in the large deposits of white
quartz near Canon City, which are
said to possess the finest qualities for
the manufacture of high-grade glass,
aand as a result a large glass factory
may eventually be built near the beds.
Lewis P. Boyle, treasurer of Canon
City, has written to the chamber of
commerce calling attention to these
deposits and stating that a recent ex
animation has shown them to be
peculiarly adapted to the manufact
ure of window glass, plate glass and
other high grades of clear glasa. The
chamber of commerce will work in
conjunction with the people of Canon
City, in an effort to have the deposits
developed and a factory built at some
convenient point In the state for

L.A. Poteet of Florence arrived here
this afternoon from the Wet Mountain
valley and brought down with him a
native trout weighing a pound and a
half which was caught yesterday In
the Colony creek by Harry H. Hender
shott, former sheriff of Custer coun
ty. The fish was presented to Judge
Lee Champion of the district court by
Mr. Hendershott ana will probably
grace the judicial table at dinner this
eveuint. Mr. Poteet also had in his
possession the head of a mountain
*heep containing a magnificent pair
of horns which was found recently on
Spring mountain, twelve miles south
west of Weßtcllffe. The animal, it is
believed, had either been caught in a
snowdrift and perished, or had been
killed during the winter months by a
mountain lion. Mr. Poteet says that
there are a good many mountain
sheep on the upper slopes of the Han
gre de Christo range and that they
are suffering less from the encroach
ments of hunters than the deer. The
head will be sent to the Denver office
of the state game and fish commis
sion and sold, the proceeds being

In this year of ‘ lean’’ fruit crops
throughout the country Canon City
horticulturists have reason to con
gratulate themselves on the generos
ity of their orchard prospects. Per
haps. no place in that great stretch
of country between the Missouri riv
er and the Pacific coast has nature
been richer, or more prodigal, with
her gifts than in Fremont county and
in the Canon City district, particular
ly in fruits of all kinds, and the hus
bandman looking forward with confi
dence to a season of more than ordi
nary prosperity.
In all of the major and minor pro
ducts of orchard and garden the out
look is most encouraging and the
ranches of Lincoln Park and Fruit
mere are anticipating a golden har
vest. While the yield of the com
mercial varieties of apples may not be
as great as in some previous years the
prices promise to be better owing to
the shortness of the crop in other
sections of the state and growers will
be more than compensated for the re
striction by the augmented demand
and Increased revenue they will de
rive from the tale of their merchan
dise. It is an open secret that the
orchards of the Canon City dstrict
this year will be the most productive
in Colorado, a state second to none in
the Union In the wealth and variety of
its horticulture. Many orchards that
a month or six weeks ago gave little
indication of "making good" are now
alluring with hope and assurance of a
liberal, profitable crop. If no unfor
■een contingency arises there will be
at the lowest calculation a thousand
car loads of apples shipped out of
Canon City within the next four or
five months. As many new orchards
will come into bearing this season the
aggregate shipments are likely to riv
al, If not exceed, those of previous
The weather during the last few
weeks has been distinctly favorable
for the growth of all kinds of fruit
In this district and there seems no
doubt that the quality will be fully up
to the best standard of previous years,
which is equivalent to saying that the
product of Canon City horticulturists
will be inferior to that of no other
portion of the country in size, col
or. flavor and popularity. It means
that Canon City apples will again lead
the prices for such fruit in Kansas
City, Chicago and New York, as well
as in Seattle. Portland. San Francis
co and Los Angeles.

turned to their home at Colorado
Springs yesterday after u pleasant
visit of a couple of days duration In
this city. Mr. Chisholm Is vice-presi
dent of the El Paso County Good
Roads association and Is an enthu
siast ujKjn the subject of Improved
highways. Mr. VanDlest le chief en
gineer for the estate of the late Gen.
William J. Palmer and the splendid
roadways oft the Glen Eyrie property,
as well as much of the magnificent

is due to his skill and enterprise In
that character of work. While here
Charles R. Melanin took the visitors
on numerous automobile rides about
the town nnd its environs; making a
special effort to show them the Sky
line Drive, the new road up through
Priest canon towards the top of tho
Royal Gorge and the orchard growing
sections of the community. Tbty
- i
ty from that source was fully as great
as It was last year as better prices
were realized by the rancher. Last
year’s crop sold on an average at
$1.75 a crate. This season the aver
age was about $2.25. Gooseberries,
which are now abundant, sold last
year at sl.lO, but this year are in de
mand at $1.50 a crate. Currants will
bring the growers this season an av
erage of approximately $1.50, which
will be about the same as twelve
months ago. Black raspberries are
Just finding their way into the mar
ket and are sure to command a good,
stiff price by reason of the shortness
cf the crop in the Loveland district.
Beans, of which the supply la inade
quate to supply the demand, are sell
ing at 10c a pound. Peas, which are
not grown here to the extent they
should be are selling at five cents a
pound. There is a good profit In them
at that figure and they should be
largely cultivated by our gardeners
for the demand for them Is practical
ly unlimited.
J. T. Calvert of the Hot Springs
addition has been marketing from five
to six hundred pounds of string beans
♦♦very day this week and expects to In
crease the amount to s thousand
pounds by next Monday. At ten cents
a pound he finds them about the most
remunerative crop that be can grow.
The shipment of summer apples to
Denver and other points In tha state
began s day or two ago and will be a
big business in the oourse of anoth
er week or so. They are finding their
way to the market In twenty pound
baskets and look very nice. Not for
a long period haa the outlook for the
Canon City fruit grower been as pleas
ing as It is at present and he haa no
reason to envy the horticulturist of
any other section. Indeed, his encour
agement* are a little better than those
given to the orchardlsta anywhere else
Hla crop Is an excellent one on the
whole and the prices the most satis
factory In years.
