Precocious Children.

largely that the nature of precocity
Is not understood. Most parents, for
txample, hail the signs of it with de
light, and do all they can to foster
:hem. They treat precocity as a gold
nine, to be "worked for all it is
worth," but here they make a great
mistake. There are several types of
precocious children, presenting vary
ing degrees of peril to the training
lystem, and this peri! is greatly
lessened by a capacity to classify the
‘.ypes. There are certain children,

can bear an enormous amount of the
system without breaking down, but
they do not make the men and women
they would have made under wlße re

their elders, Interested in physical pur
suits, and molded into symmetry by a
persistent holding back. There may
not be much wrong with the child
who reads the Greek Testament a f
four years of age, but there is certain

who let him. There is another very
different type of precocious children,
says the Youth's Companion. These
are the offspring often of gouty or tu
berculous parents, and inherit, if not
actual disease, at least faulty phy
siques. They are often beautiful, en
gaging children of great mental bril
liance. They often have phenomenal
memories which are developed at the
expense of all other mental faculties.
They are not physically strong enough
for any sustained effort, and after a
brilliant childhood they exh&Ußt them
selves and become commonplace.
These children should be made to lead
physical lives, every effort being di
rected to form a good constitution. A
country life is almost a necessity in
their case, and the mental develop

Friday, owing to the stock market
tangle In New York and the resultant
uncertainty, the prices of wheat went
down about 2 cents a bushel.
On this slight break from the usu
ally high level, foreigners rushed in
and bought every bushel of grain and
barrel of flour offered for sale, the
export business being the largest ever
recorded for a single day.
The result was that wheat has
gained twice as much here yesterday
as it had lost the day before.
The anxiety of the foreigners to buy
on every break shows that they must
have wheat regardless of price.
The fact is that there is a shortage
of wheat all over the world.

Grand Junction Product Not Excelled
in the World.
Denver.—Grand Junction, the much
heralded fruit center of the western
slope, has hud a wonderful har
vest of fruit of every description
this season, and the fruit growers
association of Grand Junction has
paid several thousands of dollars
to the owners of the orchards
as the returns on the first ten cars of
Grand valley contaloupes shipped dur
ing the season. The prices obtained
for the fruit were remarkable, the
standard grade bringing $1.05 per
crate,, jumboes 90 cents u crate, ponies
47 cents and gems 70 cents a crate.
FV;r the ten cars a total of $3,278.90 was
paid the growers. These i.rices, good
a:> they were, have been surpassed
since the first cars were sent
out, and the standard cantaloupes
sold this month for SI.OB to the
crate, the jumboes 94 cents, po
nies 41 cents and the pink gems 58
cents per crate. The vast majority of
the shipments are made to New York
and Chicago and the markets in the
great cities are more than willing to
pay tho best prices for the Grand Junc
tion fruit. At the present time the
shipping season is near its end and the
Grand Junction Fruit Growers' asso
ciation shipped out its last car a week
Nor are cantaloupes the only fruit
which has seen the best of prices paid
for it In Grand Junction. Fourteen cars
of pears shipped out of Grand Junc
tion in September netted the sum of
$23,874 to the growers. This shows an
average of $1,705 for every car. and
the average prices paid for four-tier
pears was $3.95 a crate, for rive-tier
pears $3.50, for six-tier pears $2.75. and
foi choice pears $2.60. AH of these
pears were of the Buerre d’Anjou va
riety. Of the fourteen cars, six went
to Chicago, six to New York, and two
to Philadelphia.
Encouraging prices were likewise
paid to the growers for apples.
Together with Rocky Ford. Grand
Junction enjoys the distinction of be
ing the great fruit center of Colorado,
and the rivalry between the two towns
to see which shall make the largest
and most profitable sales is keen. It is
said that the Innd on which the fruit
is grown is advancing most rapidly,
and in some parts of the country about
Rocky Ford and Grand Junction the
land can not be bought at all. or only
for exorbitant prices. The norticultural
department of the state Is ii: receipt of
hundreds of letters monthly, seeking in
formation from all parts of the world
regarding the groat opportunities to be
found in gruit growing on the western
slope of Colorado. The towns in the
center of the fruit districts are enjoy
ing a steady and continuous growth,
and the resources of the country have
only begun to be developed. There is
much of the land In western parts of
the state on which irrigation
facilities are lacking, and it is said that
when all of the possible fruit land in
Colorado is under cultivation, this state
will be second only to California as a
fruit producing land.

Everybody is Helping Push Along the
Denver.—Quietly out steadily the
men who are flnannng and promoting
the affairs of the new Denver, Lara
mie & Northwestern railway, which
will stretch its tiacks from Denver
to Fort Collins, then through Fish
creek canon to Laramie and Lander,
Wyoming, and eventually on through
to Seattle on the i’aciflc coast, aro
at work and every day sees the pro
ject which will mean much to Denver
nearer consummation. The different,
tights of way have practically been
secured all along the line, say the men
at the head, and actual work on the
construction of the new trunk line
is but a few months off.
"We are more than gratified with
the progress of our work in Denver
and in fact all through the northern
portion of the state," said C. S. John
son, president of the new road yester
day. “The people of this state are
rallying to our support in splendid
style. There are no ‘ifs’ about our
proposition. The new road will be
built and will be built much sooner
than most people have any idea. Nec
essarily in a work of such magnitude
as ours; progress, especially in the
earlier stages, must seem somewhat
slow. But in railroad building as in
everything else much depends in the
kind of a foundation. We are laying
our foundation well and deep.
"The splendid endorsement of our
work given lo the officers and direc
tors of the road by the Denver cham
ber of commerce was especially grati
fying and will have much to do with
speeding the time when actual work
on the road will be begun. We af
forded the chamber of commerce com
mittee every opportunity to examine
thoroughly our plan of operation and
the fact that it received such hearty
support from them is a source of
much gratification io us."
The building of the Denver,
ramle & Northwestern means men
and money for Colorado and the ef
fects of the preliminary work along
these lines already have been felt.
All of the active workers in the new
enterprise are now numbered as resi
dents of the state. Last week W. H.

Appeals of Kansas, and afterward a
prominent oil producer and promin

ditions. E. E. Frizell, mayor of lear
ned, Kansas, and his brother-in-law,

It Will be Completed in Time For the
Big Political Conventions.
Denver. —It Is an assured fact that
Denver's big audlioriuni will be com
pleted by May 1, 1908. In answer to
a letter written by W. F. R. Mills to
Mayor Speer, asking him if he
thought It possible for the Nationul
Surety Company to finish the auditor
ium in time to accommodate one of
the national political conventions next
summer, the major stated that it was
hot only possible, but practically cer
tain that all work would be completed
by May Ist.
Ralph W. Smith, third vice presi
dent of the National Surety Company,
wrote as follows to Mr. Mills, chair
man of the convention league:
"Referring to your inquiry as to
when the Denver auditorium will be
built, I desire to inform you that it
will be built by May 1. 1908. Since
assuming the contract for the con
struction of the auditorium, we have
made arrangements whereby there
cannot be any delay. We have ar
ranged for the prompt delivery of the
steel necessary and have sub-con
tracted already about seventy-five per
cent, of the work to be done. I have
placed in charge of the actual con
struction work one of the most com
petent superintendents In the coun
try, and I personally expect to give
this matter everj attention nnd con
sideration. I want to assure you that
no one in the city of Denver is more
Interested In the prompt and early
completion of this building than the
writer, and I will do everything in my
power to have the building completed
on or before May 1, 1908.”
Mayor Speer’s letter was similar to
Mr. Smith's stating that If it were
necessary, double shifts would be
worked night and day. The Republi
can national committee meets In De
cember and the Democrats meet In
January, at these meetings the con
vention city for each party will be
selected and it is though that Denver
has a good chance of getting one of
the large conventions.

Big Fire at Fort Morgan.
Fort Morgan. Colo.—The most de
structive fire that ever visited the
town of Fort Morgan occurred Sunday
morning, starting at 5 o’clock. The
Platte Valley flour mill, one of the
most extensive mills or its kind in the
state, was totally destroyed, including
20,000 bushels of wheat. The total
loss is estimated at $40,000.
Practically all of the flour in the
mill was saved, although some of it
was damaged by water.
The fire started in the engine room
and soon burned through into the
main building. When the department
arrived the building was completely
enveloped and beyond all hope of be
ing saved. The structure and ma
chinery were valued at $20,000. and
are a total loss. Twenty thousand
bushels of wheat was partly consumed
and nearly all of it was damaged to
such an extent that it is unfit for any
thing except stock feed.
There was $17,500 insurance on the
mill and its contents.
Rate Reductions Boom Gold Camp.
Cripple Creek. Colo.—With the re
duction of freight and treatment
charges on the 15th of this month by
the United States Refining & Reduc

trusts, it is estimated that 500 more
men will be employed here before the
end of the month.
The Wild Horse cyanide mill will re
sume operations today and will prob
ably handle 100 tons a day. Among the
mines that have resumed or will re
sume within the next few days are the
Teutonic, Gold Sovereign, Findley,
Monte Cristo, Forest Queen and Alax.
The Trilby, Crescent and Mary McKin

A man and his wife were once stay
ing at a hotel when in the night they
were aroused from their slumber by
the cry that the hotel was on fire.
"Now, my dear,” said the husband,
“I will put into practice what I have
preached. Put on all your indispens
able apparel and keep cool.”
Then he slipped his watch into his
vest pocket and walked with his wife
out of the hotel. y
When all danger was past he said:
“Now you see how necessary it is to
keep cool.”
The wife for Jhe first time glanced at
her husband.
“Yes, William," she said, "it is a
grand thing, but if I were you I would
have put on your trousers.”—Boston

They Take the Place of the Old-
Fashioned Flower Baskets ar.d
Are Graceful and
The most graceful and charming
flower holders have now been placed
upon the markets to take the place
of the fascinating baskets which have
been so pdpular that the searchers
after novelty are eager for something
new which may distinguish the floral
decoration of their rooms and tables
from that to be seen in the houses of
their acquaintances.
Porcelain cornucopias suspended In
a network of dried grass, rafia or
cord are the newest sort of wall pock
ets. The shape of these hanging vases
is not exactly that of a rconucopia
i either, because they slope more grad
ually toward the bottom and are
more rounded than a cornucopia. Per
haps the shape is more nearly that of
one of those common seashore shells,
round and large at the top and slop
ing gracefully toward the bottom.
The ware used for these hanging
vases is a bright glaze and they are
I almost all in rather crude colors, vivid
1 orange, equally vivid green, dark but
; brilliant red and bright blue. The
| network of brown or tan and a grass
1 in which they ate hung soften the
i colors of the vases. A loop of the
rafia or cord is used for suspending
| them from a wail hook, gas arm or
some similar suitable projectiou.
These hanging vases are suspended
over the table where there is a chan
delier, and they are most decorative
ly used in this way. They are also
hung from the doorways and in the
windows, especially when there is a
window of soipe size
A delicately beautiful vase for the
table. In which for informal occa
sions flowers may be effectively ar
rangeil, is a slender silver upright,
from which branch out the most grace
ful and beautiful morning glory cups,
two on one side and three on the
other. The cups, in the shape of morn
ing glories, are of white glass with
delica** opalescent tints, which fitting
ly represent the pale yet radiant
tints o? pink and blue which flush the
petals of a white morning glory. The
silver upright, which is mounted on
an unobtrusive silver vase, is made
to represent a slender shrub stem, and
around this is a silver morning glory
vine, which twines itself with all the
grace of nature.
The bells, or cups, are of course to
be filled with flowers, and the silver
upright may be Joined with a delicate
green vine to make a most charming
Sweet peas, morning glories, lilies
of the valley, with asparagus vine,
tiny moss roses and sinilax, garden
pinks ragged ribbons, the delicate hot
house narcissus and innumerable other
swell and graceful flowers, whose
stemn are not stiff, are charming in
these vases.
For table vases also there are lotus
bowls which are useful for unother
sort Ct blossom. These bowls are
dull green in color, and are made of a
heavy dull finish, with grayish sugges
tions in all »the tones of green, 'fliey
are decorated with slightly raised
lotus blossoms, leaves and stems, all
in the color of the bowl and formed
into a conventional pattern.
There are also rather eccentric new
vases, suitable for a child's room but
hardly attractive for an ordinary
apartment. These are in the shape
of frogs, flsh and kittens, in whoso
open mouths the flowers are placed.
These vases are all in very vivid
colors, and are rather grotesque than
attractive, although they are no doubt
very much liked by children. They
would be ve;*y suitable prize gifts for
a children’s party, aud either boys or
girls would probably be delighted with
For Embroidery Edges.
Many garments are spoiled by hav
ing the edge split and
frayed by a careless laundress. The
garment can be made to last twice as
long and many dollars saved by
stitching around the scallops twice,
this makes a strong, firm edge anri
does not detract from its appearance.
