IE YOU THINK 18 IS HOT JUST READ ABOUT CHICAGO From Wednesday’s Daily. From the Chicago Record-Herald of Monday. Chicago gasped and wilted yester-' day under the temperature and hu midity of typical summer day in a Central American banana republic.i with more deaths and prostrations, j bringing the total for the three weeks that the torrid wave has prevailed to nearly 80 who have succumbed and more than 100 prostrated. Yesterday waa not only hot. but tropically hot. and the complete sat uration of the atmosphere added im measurably to tbs enervating and j prostrating effects of the heat itself. ! There was no getting away from it. j Nothing short of a cold shower bath or * complete immersion in the lake would do the trick. As the air became hotter and hotter It drank In more and more water until the atmosphere was sur charged with vapor and weighed like a suffocating gas on mind and body ' alike. OF INTEREST TO FRUIT GROWERS A FRUIT GROWER'S CREED. I The following remark! delivered | recently by Prof D. W. Working be fore a fruit growers* school in West Virginia, are so far above the average run of farmers' Institute preaching I that we consider it worth while to report them in full. It has been said that only good men can be farmers, and only the best farmers can be I fruit growers; and the reaeon given , is that so mush faith, courage and I dogged peraistance are required for . success All of which means a high , type of moral character: so that it l seems quite appropriate for Prof i Working to state it all in the form of a religious creed—for fruit growing :is a kind of religions. Here Is what he said: He who plants a tree possesses ! his faith. It Is as if he should »ay I I believe. . . . ' I believe! ! I believe in God and in the order- I liness of His Universe; 1 believe in the regular procession or the seasons—spring and summer and autum and winter; I believe In the sure succession of youth and maturity; I believe in the unfailing order of blossom-time and frult-tlme; I believe in the permanence of hu man needs; I believe in the perpetuity of hu man Institutions; I belie\e In the steadfastness of Mother Earth, whose promise of food for her faithful children In a pledge that will not fail: I believe in work as a divine gift; 1 believe in myself; 1 believe' And in this abiding faith I work; In this faith I plant this tree; In this faith I will dig about Its roots and nourish It; Tn this faith 1 will protect it from vermin and disease; WEEKLY The ladies of First Presbyterian Aid entertained their husbands with a pic nic at the Green ranch on Four Mile. Ample justice was done to the delici ous lunch that was followed by gal lons of ice cream. Upon the return of the party to the burg, they met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Biddale on Central street, where ice cream and cake was served. It was a most de lightful Fourth, for this crowd at least. The guests were: Mr. and Mrs. Brainard and family, Mrs. Clarke, Mr. Dresser and wife of Harper, Kan sas. who are visiting the former’s pa rents, Mr. and Mrs. Dresser of Or chard avenue. Trepkal Winds Add HeaL In the streets horses staggered un > der it. Men mopped their damp, hot foreheads in perfectly fatuous efforts to fled relief. Soft and impotent trop | leal winds blew, but did no more than Just perceptibly touch the cheek and thea straightway vanished. Overhead a thick dull, murk hid the blue of the ■ky. “Heat lines’* simmered over the I glaring sidewalks. It was a dog day. right and proper. Hotter days have been seen and felt ! in Chicago, but not many bolter and twith a higher humidity than yester day afe recalled by the oldest tahabl i tact Ice-cold buttermilk or lemon ade. drunk in direct line with the muzzle of a rapid-fire electric fan, seemed to be the only solution of the | problem, aside from the shower or the immersion. And yet the thermometer got no h'gher than $9. which was three de grees lower than the record for the year, which was reached Friday, when ! the mercury touched 92. In this faith I will wait for the early and the latter rain; In this faith I will guard the blos som and the green fruit; In this faith I will watch for the ! first blush of the ripening peach and . the early tints of the maturing ap- I pit: In this faith 1 will gather the first ! fruits with a thankful heart; The fruit grower or the prospective 1 fruit grower has chosen his location; i he has cleared the wilderness spaces of brush and briers; he has broken up the stubborn earth and made it obedient to the conquering plow; he ! has mellowed the soil with the har ! row; now he comes to the testing of ’ his faith—to the working out of his , problem. What mu»t the tree planter ' do? What is the tree planter's prob lem? It is the problem of a single ’tree or of ten thousand trees? The problem is more than a prob- | ; lem of a single tree or of ten thous -1 and trees; it is the problem of faith- ! I fulness And patience and of lntel l ligent pursuance of a plan. So many men plant with abounding faith, and , then fall to keep the faith with all j diligence! So many see visions of, rewards, and then refuse to pay the pries of the great rewards by faith ful study and unremitting toll! So many see only the visions of the 1 planting and the gathering, losing 'sight of the long period of waiting and working that lies between! This is what I would teach to the man who plants an orchard- that he has and can obtain: that he must , cultivate and care for it with all the knowledge and diligence and intel | li«e* nee he possesses, and with a con ■ tinuing effort to get more knowledge 1 and to work with Increasing Intel 11- i gene* and a surer vision of the ful filment of hie hopes with abundant harvests. (CcaUnusd on Page 8) MADE AN APPRO PRIATION FOR THE ROYAL GORGE ROAD From Wednesday’s Daily The city council last night unani mously voted to appropriate from the miscellaneous fund the sum of 8500 or “so much thereof as may be need ed for the purpose,” to assist in the construction of the public road now being built to the top of the Royal Gorge. It was expressly stated in the resolution under which the appro priation was made that the money was to be used in building that portion of the road lying within the confines of the park ceded to the city by an act of congress a few years age. Messrs Frank P. Smith, U. E. Side bottom. Guy U. Hardy and George A. Prentiss, representing the Canon City Business Men’s association, were pres ent to urge upoD the council the value and advantage to the community of an early competition of the proposed road and the wisdom of setting aside from the municipal treasury a suffi cient sum of money to construct it through the park. The matter had been carefully presented to the mem bers of the council before their meet ing and it was apparent that like Bar cuß. they were "willin’" and lengthy speeches on the part of the petition ers were not necessary. Mr. Smith as president of the association, stated that the county commissioners had es timated the cost of the work to be about SSOO and that they had offered to provide the city with all of the re quired tools and road making ma chinery at absolute cost to carry the enterprise into execution; a conces sion that would minimize the outlay on account of the undertaking. It was stated that there was ap proximately 11,100 feet, or something less than two and a quarter miles, of the contemplated road Inside the park boundaries, of which about 2.000 feet would be rock work. According to Al derman Weaber. who had made a somewhat careful survey of the topog AN INTERESTING OLD MILITARY PAPER From Wednesday's Daily. Capt. H. M. Mingay has in his pos session the official daily report of Capt. David Haynes, Jr., of the artil lery company connected with the Sth and ISth regiments of the New Hamp shire militia for November 5. 1814, then doing detached duty at Porta i mouth in that state. It is a most in teresting old military document and is iin a wonderfully well preserved con dition. It shows that there were 69 men in the command, of which 56 EAST CANON PEOPLE HAVE JOLLY FOURTH From Wednesday’s Dally. . The neighbors and friends of Mr. and Mrs. F P. Cline all met at their lovely country home, on South Cotton- ! wood avenue, loaded with baskets and . boxes, all well-filled to enjoy togeth er another Fourth and to say it was j enjoyable would not half express it There was something doing every I minute. About sixty were in attend ance. The dinner was announced at 12:30 and all did full justice to the good things after which the program prepared under the direction of Miss Lula Feller and Mrs. H. J.

He said that there were five places, aggregat ing less than half a mile, where pick* and shovels would be needed to build the road, and that a grader could be used the remainder of the dis tance. Eight or ten culverts will have to be installed, but they can be put in at a comparatively small expense. The road will be sixteen feet in width and an effort will be made to have it completed and ready for travel by the first of August. It is believed that the county road, now being built by prison labor from Priest canon to the eastern line of the park, will be fin ished by the end of the current month and it is desired to dedicate both of them at the same time; thereby mak ing the top of the Royal Gorge easily accessible to tourists by horse drawn carriages, or by automobiles. The county commissioners, the bu siness men's association and the pub lic generally have been working ioy -ally for some time for the road to the top of the Royal Gorge and it is grat ifying to know that the city has decid ed to assist in the movement. As soon as the road making machinery belong ing to the county can be assembled* the most of which is now being used on the Currant Creek road, work will be commenced on the new highway and will be prosecuted as rapidly as possible until the undertaking is fin ished. The opening of this much talk ed of road will bring one of the great est natural and scenic attractions of the continent within easy reach of Colorado tourists by wheeled vehicles of nearly every kind. The long dream ed of driveway to the top of the Roy al Gorge is about to become a reality. were privates, four were musicians, four were corporals, three were ser geants. one was a quartermaster ser geant and one was a captain.
