An Independent Newspaper. Frank 1». Front, Editor aud Proprietor. MARBLE - - - COLORADO HOPE OF ENDING MEXICO’S WOES APPEAL TO INSURRECTOS TO REGARD “SACRED INTEREST OF THEIR COUNTRY.” FIND COMMON GROUND IF U. S. WILL TAKE CARE OK SMUGGLING, MEXICO WILL TAKE CARE OF REBELS. Washington—With the Mexican am bassador and the insurrectos aghas: at Washington declaring that Ameri can intervention means union of reb els with Diaz to fight the United States, and the ambassador asking all Mexicans to get together and work to gether for the motherland, there is hope here that the troubles of Mexico will soon be over. Official Washington and the diplo mats here believe that the leaders of the revolt and the Diaz government will find a common ground on which to stand while reforms are planned and grievances adjusted, the United States meanwhile guarding the border and keeping hands off. Before Senor De la Barra departed for Washington he gave out here the proofs of an article which will appear in the Independent on “the situation in Mexico,” urging all his countrymen, regardless of all divisions of party, all differences between men,” to recall the “sacred interests of our country” and “to work together for the progress of true Democracy and the improve ment of the motherland.” The ambassador penned this appeal only last night, after his conference with Senor Limantour, the Mexican minister of finance, and he considered it so important that at the very last moment he had it crowded into the locked forms. Insurrecto leaders to whom the para graph was shown said they considered it an invitation to come into camp, and its issuance makes more notice able a trend of events that has been discoverable for the last three days. On one side there was a disposition on the part of the insurrectos to open negotiations with the representatives of the Mexican administration here; on the other, there was a growing understanding between the Mexican government and the United States. Virtually Senor Limantour is willing to have it understood that if the United States will take care of smug gling, his government will take care of the insurrection. Guggenheim Enlists State Department. Washington.—Senator Guggenheim has enlisted the support of the State Department in behalf of A. J. Farrell, formerly of Florence, Colo., now serv ing a ten-year sentence in a Mexican jail at Zacatecas under conviction in the Mexican courts for complicity in a murder. The testimony in the case Is said to have shown that Farrell’s only connection with the murder was to lend a revolver to a Mexican, who committed the shooting, and that Far rell knew nothing of the affair until after the murder was committed. The 8tate Department has investigated the matter and has come to the conclusion that Farrell was unjustly convicted. The department will endeavor to as sist Farrell’s friends in their efforts to secure a new trial and reversal of the judgment against him. 20 Years' Cripple Creek Gold Output Cripple Creek. —During the 20 years of this camp’s existence more than $280,000,000 has been produced; $317, 600,000 estimated remaining in ground May 1 No Longer Moving Day.

Had two other doctors but re ceived no help from either of them and am sure I would have been in my grave bad I not seen your advertisement in the “Daily Eagle Star.” After taking several bottles of Dr. Kilmer’s Swamp-Root I was entirely cured.

Mistress —What! My beautiful ma jolica? WOULD LIE AWAKE ALL NIGHT WITH ITCHING ECZEMA “Ever since I can remember I was a terrible sufferer of eczema and other irritating .skin diseases. I would lie awake all night, and my suffering was intolerable. A scaly humor set tled on my back, and being but a child, I naturally scratched it. It was a burning, itching sensation, and utterly intolerable, in fact, it was so that I could not possibly forget about it.. It did not take long before it spread to my shoulders and arms, and I was almost covered with a mass of raw flesh on account of my scratching it. I was in such a condition that my hands were tied. "A number of physicians were call ed, but it seemed beyond their med ical power and knowledge to cure me. Having tried numerous treat ments without deriving any benefit from them, I had given myself up to the mercy of my dreadful malady, but I thought I would take the Cuticura treatment as a last resort. Words cannot express my gratitude to the one who created ‘The Cuticura Mira cles,’ as I have named them, for now I feel as if I never suffered from even a pimple. My disease was routed by Cuticura Soap and Ointment, and I shall never cease praising the wonder ful merits they contain. I will never be without them, in fact, I can almost dare any skin diseases to attack me so long as I have Cuticura Remedies in the house. I hope that this letter will give other sufferers an idea of how I suffered, and also hope that they will not pass the ‘Cuticura Life Saving Station.’” (Signed) C. Louis Green, 929 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 29, 1910. All Over. The Tiger—What’s the matter with the giraffe? He doesn’t look well. The Lion—No, he says he feels sick all over.

New Windsor. —Since the heavy snowfall of the last two weeks there has been renewed activity in all lines of business and Windsor and vicinity are optimistic over prospects for the coming season. Winter wheat in the dty farming district south of Wind sor, where hundreds of acres were planted last August and September, ia in fine condition and promises a bumper crop. Superintendent Comer of the Windsor sugar factory reports 5,000 acres of beets pledged and says the acreage this season will reach 7,000. There will be the usual acreage of potatoes and grain and farm lands adjoining the river will be planted to onions. The Windsor district is among the oldest and most highly cul tivated in northern Colorado and, tak ing its crops on an average for the last ten years, can show a yield equal to any in this region.

Greeley.—An interurban electric line, which will touch every town of importance between Denver and the Wyoming line and which will repre sent an investment of approximately $10,000,000, is promised to the people of northern Colorado by George Peck of Paris, if they will invest one per cent of that amount, $100,000, to be used for the construction of the first five miles of the road, after which the remainder is to be available as fast as five-mile parts of it are completed. The first authoritative statement relative to the project was issued Sat urday. The principal towns along the route are Denver, Greeley, Eaton, Ault, Pierce, Windsor, Fort Collins, Loveland, Estes Park, Berthoud, Longmont and Boulder. The line will run through the coal mining sections touching at all of the camps. The capital is ready, Peck says, if the one per cent be subscribed. He has been in this section for more than two months compiling a report which has been submitted to the financiers of Paris with which he is allied. The report shows that the total population which will be served approximates 250,000, and the experience of East ern cities where electric lines have been placed in operation have resulted in enormous gains in this direction. Peck says that if the requirements of the bankers in France are complied with the cash will be forthcoming as units of the road are done. Sugar Factory Assured. Brighton.—Farmers from the south ern part of Weld county report that they are assured a sugar factory will be built at Brighton this spring by Michigan capitalists owning and oper ating sugar factories in that state. Three thousand acres have been con tracted by the farmers of southern Weld county, in the vicinity of 'Brigh ton, which the company required bi fore it would build a factory. STONE MOVED BY THE SUN Immense Maes of Granite In Ohio Cemetery Undergoes Curious Revolutions. An Interesting object is to be seen In a cemetery of Ohio—a large gran ite stone weighing two tons, in the shape of a ball, which is gradually turning on its axis. During the last five years, so it is said, this ball has turned a fraction over 13 Inches. When the ball was placed In position an unpolished spot six inches in diam eter was purposely left in the socket of the pedestal whereon It rested. A little later it was noted with astonish ment that this spot was turning up ward on the south side of the monu ment. This curious revolution of the polished ball, to lift which would re quire a large derrick, is supposed to be due to the sun’s action, in the fol lowing manner: The solar rays heat ing one side cause the ball to expand to a certain degree whereas the north side, which rests mostly in the shade, does not expand to the same extent, thus causing the ball gradually to shift its position by turning. To Incline Toward Mercy. Jim had been far from a good boy during the day and toward nightfall he realized the fact fully. Being well acquainted with the workings of fam ily descipline he essayed a little di plomacy. "Shaft you tell father about me?” he inquired of his mother. “Certainly I shall tell him,” respond ed his mother, with sorrowful firm ness. "Shall you tell him before dinner or after dinner?” asked the culprit. "After dinner,” was the announce ment. "Mother," and Jim gave a wiggle of anticipation, “couldn’t you have a blueberry pudding for his dessert? Couldn’t you do that much for me, mother?” —Youth’s Companion. Cause and Effect. "I see from the papers,” said Daw son, “that there is a great scarcity of chorus girls this year.” “I was afraid there would be,” said Wiggles. “It’s only another case of cause and effect.

A young girl who had never heard of Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March,” but was familiar with the more popu lar parody on it, was a witness to a wedding cermony in an uptown church recently. As the betrothed pair walked with dignified tread to ward the altar to be wed, and the or gan pealed forth Mendelssohn’s Inspir ing march, the young girl was plainly shocked. When she arrived at her home she told her mother of the cere mony and Innocently exclaimed: ‘What do you think, mother, they played ‘Gee Whiz! I’m Glad I’m Free.’ ” Warned. A serious-minded New Yorker, who, because of his dignified outlook on life, has sent his son, aged twelve, to a particularly strict and proper board ing school In New England, unexpect edly visited the school last week. As certaining the location of his young hopeful’s room, he climbed the four flights of stairs necessary to reach It —and entered. On a mammoth pla card suspended from a steel engrav ing of “Washington and Generals” (presented to the youth as a Christ mas gift by his admiring parent) was the cheerful sentiment: “Don’t spit op the ceiling.
