“Story of the Reformation"

a Great Achievement of
Canon’s Amateurs
Canon City people who failed to at- i
tend the entertainment at the opera j
house Thursday night when “The
Btory of the Reformation, or the I-ife '
of Martin Luther," was presented un- '
der the auspices of Trinity Lutheran
church, should not neglect the oppor- j
tunlty of seeing it re-enacted there
this evening. It is one of the
beat amateur productions given hjr ;
in a long time and cannot fail to
please all who give it patronage. ■

According to Prof. W. H. Ray. sup

Canon City, the attendance of pupils
here this year is the largest in the !
history of the community. There nrc
one hundred an.l six pupils already
registered In the first grade on this

, likely to be considerably Increased be
fore the close of the term. At present
i i
there ore about one hundred more pu- :

A. H. Low, of Denver, prominent in
1 that city as a chemist, was put ou the
witness stand by the defendant in the
river clarification cane at noon on
Thursday and the submission of his
testimony has occupied the atten
tion of the court ever since. Mr. Low
has been in the employ of the defend
ant for some, time, and, in that rela
tion, has made no fewer than seven
analyzations of water taken from the
Arkansas river at various points be
tween Granite and Pueblo and is thor
oughly familiar with the properties
It holds in solution and with the
amount and character of the silt car
ried by It at the different seasons of
the year. Mr. Low this afternoon made
—in the presence of the court—flltra
tions of a number of samples of water
taken from half a dozen points along
the river in an effort to establish one
of the contentions of the attorneys
for the defense. Mr. Low gave it as
his opinion, baced .upon deductions
reached from his investigations, that
fifteen times as much mud and silt
was washed into the river between
Canon City and Pueblo as there was
between Granite and Canon City. The
geology of the country west of here,
a m well as its sparse.y settled condi
tion, minimizes the quantity of min
eral and vegetable matter washed In
to the river, while the sandy soil and-
Irrigation methods employed between
here and Pueblo vastly augments the
sources and extent of the pollution.
From present Indications It will be
Thursday or Friday of next week be
fore the case is finally closed.

Fremont Made Great
Horticultural Dis
play at Pueblo.
While there is 6ome disappointment
that Fremont county exhibitors in the
horticultural department at the state
fair at Pueblo last week did not get
the sweepstakes prize for the best
collection made by any countiy in the
state they have abundant reason to
be satisfied with the blue ribbons
they secured in the box and plate
In addition to more than two hund
red awards of the latter class, a
number largely in excess of the
prises given to any other county,
there was given to Fremont county
third place for the largest and best
collection of fruit of all varieties:
first place place In district number
three; first for the largest and best
collection of pears; first, second and
third tor the best collection of native
grapes: first and second for its ex

Now that we have had time to
brush off our clothes and 6hake the
dust out of our hair let's look back
at the county fair and sort of take
stock, as it were.
Was it a s'uccess?
1b the Fair worth while?
Is it worth all it costß?
As to the first query it was a de
cided success. Everybody could see
that. It was excellently managed and
the program on the track was the
best ever. The program was fully
as good as any that has ever been
pulled off in any fair ground in the
state, not even excepting the state
fair at Pueblo.
The exhibits were good in every
department, especially of fruits of
the tree and soil. In no single coun
ty in the state can a better display
of fruits and apples especially oe
found. Each year the display of
fruits is a marvel to our own citi
zens and an ehcouragement for bet
ter efforts.
Is the Fair worth while?
We think It is. It is worth while
to show our people what we can do
by bringing together the best from
many farms. Such an exhibition of
fruits and vegetables has a great
influence in building up our re
sources and encouraging other peo
ple to plant other varieties of fruits
and vegetables. It helps to build up
diversified crops.
Beside this we have thousands of
people here from other parts of the
state and from other states who find
out more in a day of our resources
than they could learn otherwise in
a year. And then the general ef
fect of a holiday season for our own
people is of value. It’s a good thing
to jar loose from business for a day
or two now and then and it’s a
good thing to provide the entertain
ment at home.
Is it worth what it costs?
We think so. A Fair costs some
money. No fair we know anything
about is entirely self-sustaining.
Ours has required some subscrip
tions on the street from time to time.
Last year no subscriptions were
taken. This year it was necessary.
Last year the loss was taken care

J. T. Corrln, of thl* city, entered
i his handsome, four-year-old standard
bred stallion, "Young Porto Rico," at
the state fair at Pueblo last week

ed prlsea In the class In which he
was shown. He took Brat money In

of by a surplus left over from the
year before. This year the treasury
was depleted and it was necessary
to raise a little money on the street.
When all the expenses and premiums
are paid it will be found that all the
receipts and most of the subscrip
tions will be eaten up
But it’s worth all it costs.
In the first place every dollar put
into the Fair goes directly back into
the pockets of our own citizens. Not
a dollar is taken out of town. The
races cost about $2,500 but when you
connt up all the horses and horse
men who are here you can easily
count up that they leave more mon
ey here than the winners take away.
And all the premiums are paid to
people in the county. Something like
$5,000 are paid out in purses, prem
iums and expenses and every dollar
goes back into the local business
channels. Besides this the
people who come in from outside
spend about $5,000 or $6,000 in the
town. In a commercial way it is a
paying proposition for }tjhe county.
Here Is another point you may not
have thought of. Before our Fair was
put on a successful basis heavy spe
cial trains were ran out each year
to Rocky Ford, Pueblo and Denver
fairs. On those excursions many
thousands of dollars were taken out
of town. Now only a few j>eople
away from town to attend fairs. All
that money is kept at home. That
feature alone justifies all the sub
scriptions that are raised on Main
Every way jam figure it the Fsir
is a success sad worth all the mon
ey it costs every one concerned.
This community owes a debt of
gratitude to Mr.. W. B. Rowland
who baa so successfully conducted
the secretary's office for several
yearn He has Hide a business of the
Fair to the detriment of his private
business and he has developed into
an excellent fair man. More credit

more than the directors who know
how much responsibility be has re
