LAMAB. COLORAD As AN agent of capital punishment electricity is more successful in killiug time than in killing- murderers. A very larg-e horse costs a great deal before it is mature and the de mand is comparatively limited. Rais ing running horses is not prolitabie except to a few experts. The American traveler in France ridicules the hot-water foot warmjrs and the whistle of the locomotive, an l he bewails the absence of ice water and the peripatetic newsboy. A writer in Forest and Stream claims that fishes are insensible to pain. It is probably incontrollable pleasures that causes them t to dart, jump and flutter about with a hook in the mouth. By a new process, cow's milk can bo reduced to a dry powder and sold in packages. When it lirst comes into general use in that form old milkmen will be somewhat embarrassed by the necessity of keeping their powder dry. We sometimes forget that there were more men killed on the Union side alone at the battle of Gettysburg than were killed, wounded and cap tured in both tho British and the Amer ican armsie, exclusive of Yorktown. in the whole Revolutionary war. One of the queerest thiugs abou'. human nature is tho passion some peo ple have for organizing societies. With them organization is not a means but an end. They enjoy organ izing societies, whether there is any thing for them to do or not. and whether they are a help or a hi tide r ance. America is rapidly becoming a na tion of knights. Even now you couldn't throw a stone without hitting a Knight of Labor, or a Knight of Pythias, or a Knight of Honor, or a K»ight of the Golden Eagle, or a Knight Templar, or a Knight of the Silver Horn, or a dozen or so of other varieties of knights.* The old weights and measures of ounces and pounds and inches and yards ought to be made to join tho antique pounds, shillings and pence tables, so many years ago driven out of American reckdning. In South America the metric system is univer sal and it is quite general in Europe. It ought to be the only system of measurement known in this country. Whenever the people cannot secure men of patriotism and ability in their legislatures without paying salaries that suggest monarchical ideas of liv ing and gentility, the republican idea can no longer be said to be in the ascendant. Greater salaries for state legislators are not needed so much as greater care and interest on the part of the people in selecting their law makers. A native convert to Christianity in Equatorial Africa recently asked a missionary the following question: "Whicti is more contrary to Christ's commandments, to go about naked ac cording to the custom of our ancestors, or to go in debt for garments which make us hot and unh •ppy?” The an swer of the missionary is not given, but probably It was in the line of a wise compromise—if compromises are ever wise. Most great new productions, discov eries and inventions in art commerce nnd industry have been rejected at first by the experts. Experts must be guided by well established rules. They must in the course of their avocation reject thousands of e-udo and worth less innovations and must hold back their patronage from ideas which have already been carried out by men with standard reputations. As much genius is required to analyze, weigh and make a place for a new work of any kind as to construct it. Labor organizations should beware of the Socialist lie watches carefully for any measure the adoption of which would make Ibe working man better off and therefore more contented with his lot in life. His object is to make the working man discontented. To make the wage-earner's life almost un bearable is his aim. A workingman, earning good wages. living in his own house adding weekly to the savings bank account and rearing a family so that its members will have a fairer start in life than he had. is a sight that fills the Socialist with contempt and anger. All men engaged in a business or a profession are dependent in greater or less degress upon advertisment, no matter what form it takes. The pub lic is able to discern whether or not the advertisement is meretricious. The doctor who throws out his sign adver tises to that extent. So does the law yer. Each is glad of mention in the the press calculated to advance his employment or to conduce hitherto. One must make a stir in the world or go to the wall. If he has pots or ket tles or professional service to sell the fact must be made known In some way. The means ought to be a matte.* of in dividual judgement or preference. STATE NEWS. There is a great crowd at Manltou. The farmers about Rocky Ford are agitating the subject of building a large grain elevator.

A Denver man recently sued his dentist for SI,OOO damages for haviug pulled the wrong tooth. The judge failed to be convinced that the dentist was guilty and he let him off. The Nicaragua Canal Company, which Is chartered under the laws of Colo rado, met for the election of officers at Denver on the iOth. Several well-known eastern capitalists compose the company.

Remarkably rich specimens of cop per ore are being shown in Fort Collins. Mr. Frank Routt, son of ex-Governor Routt, is the discoverer of the lead from which the ore was taken.

The Second Couirregational Church of Denver, Rev. Addison Blanchard, pastor, dedicated their new house of worship last Sunday. The current number of Harper's Weekly has fine illustrations of Trinity Church, Denver, which it calls “one of the most magnificent churches in America." Rev. J. H. Reid, a graduate of the last class Yale seminary, comes to Colorado to assist Superintendent C. M. Sunders iu Congregational home missionary work. Rev. Manly D.

The society of which Mr. Ormes is pastor occupied their new edifice for the first time June 1. Rev. A. E. Armstrong, for a loug time pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Leadville, has tendered his resignation to the directors of that church. There is no clergyman in the city who has so won the hearts of the people as has the Kev. Mr. Armstrong, and unless the reverend gen tleman insists that his resignation be ac cepted, it is doubtful whether his parish ioners will allow him to leave here. He is also superintendent of the Bake County public schools. The Baptist Church people commenced yesterday the erection of a parsonage on the rear of their lots, corner of Hopkins Avenue and Third Street. M. Dougherty, who put up the church building, is doing the work. This church has been pastor less since November. Rev.

In the meantime the services will be regularly held as they have been during the winter and spring.— Aspen Times. Attention, Miners. The work which has beendone by the Rocky Mountain office of the mining I branch of the Eleventh Census is one of great interest and value to all the mining regions in the West. In a country liko this where mining in all its forms is a general industry uo greater good can be lone than fully describing and publishing the results of mining and giving the | amount of production of various regions iu I the West. One of the results of the work of the census will be the publication of a I volume which will be the highest author ity on the subject and will be widely dis tributed. It offers an excellent opportuni ty for advancing the great mineral re sources of the Uockv Mountain region. The general discontent with the results of the population census in Denver aud else where, shows what the results may be in the mining census if miners and producers do not interest themselves ' sufficiently to co-operate and to send in information and schedules to the Rocky Mountain office without being compelled to do so by per sonal visits from special ugeuts in the field. The territory is so great that it re quires time to cover it and as the value of the work will lurgely depend upon its early publication, auythiug which Colora loans can do to hasten the completing of the work of the Rocky Mountain region will auvauce the publication of the book. So many different kinds of mining are just beginning in the West tnat it is very diffi cult to keep a correct list of all sorts of mines up to date and this is where great assistance can be given. If the census of ficials know that mining is being done and know the names and addresses of miners or operators, they can then communicate with these operators directly, securing the needed information. The Rocky Moun tain office furuisheß memorandum blacks, on which these names and addresses can be given: and invites mine owners and Operators to Bend for them. They will be furnished with return envelopes which re quire no postrge upon addressing E. F. Chisolm, special agent. Rooms 16 and 17, Gettysburg Building, Denver. The Prison Congress.

Juno 19.—Prob ably the most unusual consignment ever sent to any city in the world came in hero yesterday evening from the western por tion of Kansas.

The rabbits escaped easily from the curs and to-morrow will be chased by grey hounds. On Saturday they will be put in for the regular trials.

Scheme for the Government of the New Republic. Rio Janieko, June 23.—The new constitution has been elaborated by some of the most notable Jurist consults and specialists of Brazil, under the immediate supervision of the minister, who eertainly represents in a fair measure the talent aud experience of the country. This con stitution will be the fundamental law of the laud only after the constituent ass cm bly shall have approved it, which approval is not likely to be withheld long. as all feel the necessity of legalizing the govern ment Just as soon as possible, immedi ately after the decreeing of the constitu tion, there shall be an election for senators and deputies, sixty-three of the former, (three for each state and federal district' and two hundred of the latter, according to the population.

Huntington, the head and principal owuer of the most extensive system of railways in the United States, eras recently interviewed at the Nor mandie in Washington by a Post reporter and warmed up on the subject of railroad building in Africa. He said: “One thousand miles of railroad In Af rica properly planned will open up 7,000 miles of inland river and lake navigation, will surround the African slave trade and choke It to death. Tho English are will ing to give the thirty five miiea of railroad they have built inland from Suakim to a company which will complete it to the Nile, with sovereignty under a grant from the Khedive to an enormous territory. “From the Nile another link of road would reach Lake Nyassa, another would stretch from Nyassa to Tanganyika, which Is but a short reach from the Congo to the west and tho chain of lakes at tho head of the /.ambesi system to tho south. Tho Congo railroad to connect Stanley Pool with navigable waters below the lower falls will be finished in two years. The materials will come from Belgium, aa it is essentially a Belgian enterprise.
