A great many fruit trees have been set out on the lane this season; we are glad to note this progressive move on the part of the farmer. Beet raisers are making line pro gress in preparing and planting of their crops, the soil is in tine eondi tion and the outlook is good for a fine stand. We have never seen a better pros pect for all kinds of fruit than at present. The trees and shrubs seem to have passed tbe winter with out injury, and all early stuff is load ed with bloom. Dell Siple has invested in a fine new buggy. Now that looks a little auspicious bnt we hope he won’t leave the lane any more. Mr. and Mrs. Stafford spent Sun day at J. S. Wright’s.

According to Justice Gaynord, of the New York supreme court, Old Rockefeller is not a decent man. As if people didn’t know this already. The judge says: “What would a de cent man in this community do if he heard an officer was looking for him to subpoena him to court to testify? Would he hide in his house and have his wife and children and serv ants lie and say they did not know where he was? Would he hide in some other state or go aboard his yacht, if he had one, and put to sea and escape, or would he come for ward like a decent man and say: ‘I am here.’ And if he lied aud sneaked away would he not be condemned by the community bs dishonest, dishon orable and disrespectable? Would anyone offer him his hand on his return ? And if a mau with an out grown fortune made out of the abuse of publio franchises does nothing is he a decent member of society ? Is ; he fit to mingle with honest I No amount of church or Suuday; aehool can make such a character de cent or respectable.” A Busted Hero. With the approaching celebration of the centennary of the discovery of Pike’s peak, in which many societies are to participate under the leader ship of tho Bons of Colorado, a glanoe into the days surrounding the episode of that discovery may be a good thing even if it seems to change some of our preconceived notions concerning history and throws down some of our cherished idols. At a recent meeting of tbe Sons of Colorado Edward Morgan, one of the best known bibliophiles in the West, read a paper on “Early Colo rado,” which is worthy of perpetua tion. Morgan is a sou of Colorado, he loves the state and history and has devoted months to the study of its early romances and the men who entered into them. In his paper Mr. Morgan says: “ Three quarters of a century before Jamestown, Virginia, was founded and nearly 100 years before the land ing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth rock, that part of our country whioh is now Colorado was being traversed in nearly every direction by white mou of the iSpunish race. Some of them established small settlements and engaged in mining in the south ern part of the state. The earliest party of explorers to come to this state was under command of Alvar Nunez CabezA de Vacu, who sailed with his adventurers from Cuba. Earlier even than Vaca was the com ing into this laud of Luis de Mosoo so, who, in 1542 brought a parly in to western Kansas aud Colorado. On his return trip this pathfinder looat ed the Arkansas hot springs and dis covered the Mississippi river 139 years before La Salle floated on its broad bosom. lu 1001 Onate made a call on what is now Fmaba and later had a look Ht what was to be Denver.” All going to show that history has not been dealing fairly in making out a list of those presold among tho first arrivals. Long bofore the “shot heard ’round the world” had been fired, according to Morgau’s paper, Fath er Escalante, a priest, went up and down this section of laud naming rivers, monutaiu ranges and cauous. “In 1770 the wandering padre set out from Santa Fe, and, proceeding northwest to tho San Juan river he reached a point nine miles below the junction of the Navajo aud a month after tho siguiug of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, Father Escalante probably ate his frugal repast at Arboles, now a sta tion on the Denver & Rio Grande. “Before Colorado came uuder the Stars and Stripes the state was twice uuder the French flag, though nom inally owned by Spain, aud once un der the Spanish flag. Of the expeditions of Zabulon Pike, the paper of Morgan does a little knocking with a few hard facts “Pike was really not the discoverer of the peak that boars his name; it had long been kuown by the Span iards and by tbe Indians; nor was his name given to it until later years wheu the facts of his expedition be came generally known. In fact, the peak was formerly named James’ peak, after Dr. James, tbe botanist, who accompanied the Long expedi tion. As to the justice of John C. Fre mont bearing tho title of “Pathfind er,” Morgan has shown that the son iu-law of the great Benton of Mis souri has no claim whatever to the title. “Fremont gained great re nown from the expeditions, four in number, which he made, and was tremendously exploited as a path finder; bnt, as a matter of fact, he made no discovery of importance either in Colorado or elsewhere. The paths he found were as well kuown to Kit Carson who guided him, and to many other old trappers and huuters aud frontiersmen of that day as the many roads from here to Golden are to us. Senator John W. Nesmith, discussing Fremont’s dis covery of the South pass, said he encountered the pathfinder lolling in a covered ambulance drinking lemon ade, and being fanned by his color ed attendant.” So much for another "hero of ye aucient tyme.”—Denver News.
