Want Forestry Bureau Transferred to
Department of Agriculture.—
Would Have Public Land
Denver, Aug. 6.—Recommendations
relative to the law’s and future needs
of the public land system in the West
ern states to be submitted to the
Roosevelt land commission were adopt
ed by the National Live Stock Associ
ation conference yesterday. They w’ere
considered most conservative. They
were largely dictated by James Wil
son, secretary of agriculture, Senator
Francis B. Warren of Wyoming, and F.
J. Hagenbarth, president of the Na-
Live Stock Association, and fa
vored the transfer of control of the
Bureau of Forestry from the Interior

He arrived In Albany at 1 o'clock,
and after luncheon went to tho capitol

all the newspaper men, took them
through the court chambers, private
offices and consultation rooms, and in
troduced each one of bis associate
judges. In his own room, which he
has occupied so long, he stopped and
looked out of the window to the dis
tant hills across the Hudson. Ills
voice trembled perceptibly as he said:
"This room, boys, was mine."
Slight emphasis on the word "was”
gave the first actual indication to re
porters of his Intention to resign.
Returning to the consultation room,
he took a long envelope from a pocket

Preparations are being carried
steadily forward by the women of the
Colorado Conference for the entertain
ment of the national convention of the
Women’s Home Missionary Society,
that convenes in Denver September
29th and continues eight days. The
work of tho Woman's Homo Mission
ary Society reaches from the Atlantic
to the Pacific ocean, from Alaska to
Porto Rico, nnd is already well begun
in all our new possessions, now under
the stars and stripes. The work con
sists of the establishment of training
schools, industrial schools, kinder

Union Label Decision.
Bridgeport, Conn.. Aug. 6.—Judge
O. Wheeler of the Superior Court has
granted an injunction restraining C.
H. Merritt & Son of Danbury from
using a label, which is alleged to be
nn Infringement upon the label of the
United Hatters of North America. The
decision is swooping in its effect, the
labor organization being given a
standing before the court nnd every
contention upheld. The matter of a
contract betw. en the unions and em
ployers Is held to be legal. One of tho
salient features of the decision is tho
statement that strikes and their con
comitants are not as injurious as some
of the court decisions; the latter be
ing permanent in their effect while
the strike and disorder are ephemeral.
Ohio a Little Too Slow.
San Francisco, Aug. 6.—The Union
Iron Works may* forfeit $18,300 to the
government as a penalty for failure to
bring the battleship Ohio up to the
stipulated speed requirements. This

contract price of $2,899,000.
The official corrected time made by
the Ohio on her trial trip was 17.817
knots, which Is .183 knots below the
mark named in the contract.
The Ohio will be accepted by the
government, as she proved herself a
perfect fighting machine and met all
requirements with' the exception of
Wolcott Sails for Home.
Denver. Aug. 6. —A telegram was re

State road 3 and bridges are now re
ceiving a great deal of attention from
the state engineer. Many of the roads
in various counties In the state are
now being constructed, bift work on
others has been delayed by reason of
the fact that contract bids have so
greatly exceeded the amounts appropri
ated by the Legislature. In such cases
it will be impossible to go ahead with
the work unless the counties interested
are able and willing to make up the
A contract was signed recently by
Btate Engineer Carpenter for the San
Juan county road extending from Ouray
to the summit of the range. Ten thou
sand dollars was appropriated by the
state for this road, but the first bid
opened set the construction figure at
$19,000. TliLs delayed the work for a
considerable time. Later the county
swelled the available funds by $2,500,
making in all about $12,500 to carry
out the work. Contractors were found
at this figure and the work will pro
gress rapidly.
The Colorado treasury Is to be fur
ther enriched by a second oil well sunk
by the Blaney Oil, Gas and Refining
Company of Florence. The new well
already has a flow of 100 barrels per
day, gfvlng an Income of about $lO a
day. The first well sunk by this com
pany pays the state royalties amount
ing from S2O to $25 per day at the pres
ent time. Register WoodrufT of the
land board is greatly pleased with the
success of the wells In that vicinity.
He says still a third well will bo put
into operation soon.
Nino new gauging stations have re
cently been established in tlie vicinity
of Middle park to determine the How
of water available in the Grand river
nnd its tributaries for irrigation and
power purposes. These stations are in
that part of the country to be tapped
by the new Moffat road. Chief Engineer
M. C. Hinderlider of the reclamation
service left Denver about three week 3
ago over the Colorado & Southern to
Dillon, where he was joined by a party
of government surveyors. From there
the party went by wagon to Kremm
ling. and surveys were made along the
Grand river past Hot Sulphur Springs
to the outlet of Grand lake. Three days
were spent In the vicinity of Grand
lake, and two gauging stations were es
tablished here, one at the outlet and
one on the north fork of the Grand.
When Colorado Day is celebrated at
the World's Fair in September there
probably will be no one in the grounds
who will not remember the name of'the
state if tliQ plans of the Rocky Ford
Fair committee are successfully carried
out. The crop of melons in the Ar
kansas River district will this year sur
pass by a wide margin any which has
ever been harvested, and as a result
when the season is waning in Septem
ber thousands of cantaloupes will go to
waste on the vines. Negotiations are
now in progress with the World’s Fair
commissioners to set the date of Colo
rado Day at about that time, when the
committee of the Rocky Ford Associa
tion will ship ten cars of iced canta
loupes for free distribution at all points
on the grounds. This would make an
aggregate of 280.000 melons and would
be a most effectual advertisement of the
Arknnsas valley. In addition to these
ten cars of cantaloupes there will -be
several cars of watermelons. The
farmers have agreed to contribute the
melons and crates ami the committee
hns collected the money for the distri
bution. —Denver Republican.
The first decisive step toward the
ereettion of the new auditorium for
I>enver was taken on the 30th ult. when
the committee on grounds and public
buildings of the Board of Supervisors
and a similar committee of the aider
men met at the city hall in joint ses
sion for the purpose of perfecting ar
rangements for receiving bids for the
site. Mayor Speer was present during
the greater part of the deliberations.
The two committees were called to or
der by Supervisor Smith, who was later
chosen permanent chairman of the
joint committee, witii Alderman Ma
honey. secretary. Following tho organ
ization the committee took up the ques
tion of the site for the auditorium, and
after considerable discussion It was de
rided that the ground surface should
hot be less than 266 feet by 200 to 300
feet. This means an area of from six
reen to twenty four city lots, with a
frontage of not less than 200 feet or
more than 300 feet, extending back to
a depth of 266 feet. The sentiment
among the members of the committee
seemed to he that the auditorium
Should he located down town. No site
was mentioned by the committeemen.
Secretary of State Cowie addressed a
fetter to Secretary of the Interior
Hitchcock at Washington, recently,
isking if the lxmndary line between
(he state of Colorado and the territory
of New Mexico had been established.
The Thirteenth General Assembly pro
dded for a commission to survey the
boundary, since a conflict had arisen
In some of the counties along the south
ern line of the state over boundary
lines. The commission was appointed
by Governor Orman, and made a report
to the secretary of state. The govern
ment on behalf of the territory of New
Mexico then made a survey. In answer
to Secretary of State Cowle’s letter
Secretary Hitchcock wrote, saying that
the southern boundary of Colorado had
been resurveyed and re-established by
H. B. Carpenter. United States survey
or and astronomer, on the thirty-sev
enth parallel of north latitude In 1902
and 1903, and the resurvey had been
approved and accepted by the Depart
ment of the Interior February 25, 1904.
It is also stated that the result of the
jurvey will be reported to Congress for
its consideration, "and to form the
basis of any negotiations which it may
deem necessary to induce the state ot
Colorado to adopt the line so estab
lished as the true boundary line, or to
have the matter determined by proper
action in the Supreme Court.” The re
survey will doubtless be approved by
Congress on behalf of New Mexico,
and it will rest with the coming Legis
lature to take similar action in behalf
of Colorado.
At a meetting of the land board re
cently a reservoir right of way was
granted to William J. Farr of Weld
county. Ten years ago Mr. Farr made
application to the board for the right
of way in question and proceeded to
build his reservoir. The application
was filed away in the arch'ves of the
land office and never presented to the
hoard for action. Register WoodrufT
discovered It one day while noting
around among old claims and began
pressing the case. Carr was granted
the right of way and paid over to the
state $1,736 for the use of the land up
to the present time.

being received at the offices of the
various railroads In this city indicate
that the crops in the state this year
will surpass any of those harvested in
tho past. The weather in the agricul
tural districts has been nothing if not
Ideal. While there has been an
abundance of rain, there has not been
a corresponding lack of sunshine for
the rain has come in the form of dail\
showers, interrupting the sunlight
only for a few minutes. In limited and
isolated districts severe wind, hail anu
rain otorms have damaged crops to
some extent, hut these accidents
count for little in the general summing
up and Colorado agriculturally will
have the greatest year in its history.
. The Rock Island reports that from
the Greeley district there will be
shipped not less than 12.000 carloads
of potatoes. The crop is bigger and
of a better quality. The abundance of
water and sunshine have done won
ders. The wheat in this district is a
phenomenal crop. In fact, throughout
the northern Colorado wheat districts
the yield Is figured at about sixty
bushels to the acre. In the corn dis
tricts the prospects for a great crop
are encouraging. Never in the histor>
of the state has the corn looked so
well at this time of year. The Santa
Fe reports that the melon crop of
the Rocky Ford district will be so
large that it cannot he harvested.
Thousands of melons will be left to
rot on the vines and the quality in
both the matter of taste and size will
lie tho best of years. In and around
Grand Junction the crops of fruit will
harvest in the same unusual ratio. The
Colorado Midland, the Denver & Rio
Grande and the Colorado & Southern
railroads report that the shipments
from this point will be far greater
than during any past year.
I There is another crop in this state
which will break all records this year
and that is that of the sugar beet. In
the vast beet-growing districts the
crop has been extraordinarily large
and Is still yielding. The five or six
sugar factories have more than they
can reduce, so already the railroads
are announcing large shipments of
sugar beets out of the state and the
yield has not been all harvested.
i "Prosperity." said a railroad official.
! "Is spelled in these reports. Just wait
until all the camps settle down to
steady and effective production, and
the state, instead of being depressed,
will be at the greatest height of its
prosperity. The outside world doesn't
realize what a figure Colorado is in the
agricultural field, hut this year's crops
will speak for themselves and they
will do a good deal toward the solu
tion of railroad business. The outlook
is most bright.”
I This is Hie general sentiment ex
pressed by all local and general rail
road officials in Denver.

Every housekeeper should know
that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they
will save not only time, because It
never sticks to the Iron, but because
each package contains 16 oz.—one full
pound—while all other Cold Water
Starches are put up in %-pound pack
ages, and the price Is the same. 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch is free from all Injurious chem
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you a
12-oz. package It Is because ho has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts in Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch has
printed on every package in large let
ters and figures "16 ozs.” Demand
Defiance and save much time and
money and the annoyance of the Iron
sticking. Defiance never sticks.
Snakes Wear Glasses.
Snakes may almost be said to have
glass eyes, inasmuch as their eyes
never close. They are without lids
and each is covered with a transparent
scale, much resembling glass. When
the reptile casts its outer skin, the eye
scales come off with the rest of the
transparent envelope out of which the
snake slips. This glassy eye scab is
so tough that it effectually protects the
truo eye from the twigs, sharp gne - _
and other obstructions which
snake encounters in its travels, yet.
It is transparent enough to allow the
most perfect vision. Thus. If the
snake has not a glass eye, it may. at
any rate, be said to wear eyeglasses.
Great Age of Birds.
After seventy-five years of captivity
a female eagle owl has just died in nn
aviary in England. Brought from
Norway in 1829, this bird within the
last thirty years has reared no less
than ninety young. Although the
eagle owl is reputed to live to a great
age, there appear to be but few
recorded instances where the age could
be definitely ascertained. A gohb-n
eagle which died at Vienna in 1719 was
known to have been captured 104 years
previously, and a falcon, of what spe
cies is not recorded, is said to have
attained an age of 102 years. A white
headed vulture taken in 1706 died in
the zoological gardens at Vienna in
1824, thus living 118 years in cap
Cotton Seed Breakfast Food.
The statement comes from Meridian.
Mississippi, that a revolution in th<
breakfast food business will be caus*
by the discovery by Chemist J. c
Mimms of a method of transforming
cotton seed meal, through a simple
process, into a palatable and delicious
human food. An application for pat
ent has been made and Southern capi
tal will manufacture it. The most
prominent vegetarian societies of thw
United States have indorsed it as V
substitute for meat, containing all thf
necessary elements to sustain the
human body. A.s cotton seed meal is
cheap its manufacture as a breakfast
food will he on a huge scale. The
new food forms a peculiar brown sub

But Still in the Fashion.
It is an ever new nnd interesting
story to hear how one can be entirely
over by change of food.
"For two years I was troubled with
what my physician said was the old
fashioned dyspepsia.
"There was nothing I could eat hut
20 or 30 minutes later I would be spit
ting my food up in quantities until I
would be very faint and weak. This
■went out from day to day until I was
terribly wasted away and without any
prospect of being helped.
"One day I was advised by an 'old
lady to try Grape-Nuts and cream
leaving off all fatty food. I had no
confidence that Grape-Nuts would do
all she said for me as I had tried so
many things without any help. But
It was so simple I thought I would
gtve It a trial she insisted so.
"Well I ate some for breakfast and
pretty soon the lady called to see her
'patient' as she called me and asked
If I had tried her advice.
" ‘Glad you did child, do j’ou feel
some better?’
" ‘No,’ I said, ‘I do not know as
do, the only difference I can see Is I
have no sour stomach and come to
think of It I haven’t spit up your four
teaspoons of Grape-Nuts yet.’
“Nor did I ever have any trouble
with Grape-Nuts then or any other
time for this food always stays down
and my stomach digests it perfectly;
I soon got strong and well again and
bless that old lady every time I see
"Once an Invalid of 98 pounds I now
weigh 125 pounds and feel strong and
well and it is due entirely and only to
having found the proper i
