CAMP MEETING FIRE BELL
1 btrfthu 4a alarm f ’ai da uuuibah one bos,
Liston, siuo&bfl, listen!
Hark, flow eamis’ly de angel knocks,
Le Hr* is hot an’ ktrein'.
Angels tappin’ on de cccsclence bell,
Heah it, heah it banging’.
Bit’e a great big flail dey’a a habbln in hell;
Hat’s why de 'bum bell’s clangin’.
A flab dat de engines nebl-er git around,
Blnnab brilin’, frjin'—
Wbar de Labcuck ’eting’iliers can’t be found,
An’ de ain’t no nee ub tryiu’
tlauiee U burnli.’ up higher an’ higher—
Burptiein’, oh! surprisin’.
Teu has an' infest in dat fiah,
An’ de Hatties am still a-rliin'.
Jump '.vlteu ys.t keah dat warnin’ chltne;
Jump up, sinnahe, jump up I
Do yo’ do in a berry quick time;
Now am de time to jnmp up.
Good hay is worth only sl6 per ton
in Pueblo, while here it sells for $l4O.
The N. Y. Graphic of the Ist re
print’s the Leadville Herald's map of
the Gunnison country.
One thousand American ministers
are in Europe getting ready to open
their sermons by remarking : "When
I was in—”
-
Texas society is agitated over the
question of whether the groom at a
wedding should wear his revolvei
belt outside or inside of his dress coal.
Last Monday Judge Smith opened
the regular quarterly term of count'
court in Gunnison. He has abou.
thirty cases on the docket to dis
pose of.
Kansas school teacher: “ Where
does the grain go to?” “Into the
hopper.” “ What hopper?” “Grass
hopper,” triumphantly 'exclaims a
•cholar.
“What did the' Puritans”come to
this country for?” asked a Massa-
teacher of his a class. “Tc
worship in their own way and mak'
other people do the same,” was the
reply.

Gunnison merchants' are laying i:
heavy stocks of merchandise for the
winter. This is 'a wise move instead
of waiting until three or four feet o!
snow is on*the ground and then hav
ing to pay four times the regulai
freight.— Denver Review.
We understand that the new court
house in Gunnison is very near com
pleted, and in a few weeks the conn }
officials wilLbe able to] occupy theii
new quarters. The building is a two
story brick, and is a great credit tc
Gunnison county.
The miners in the different camp
throughout Colorado should all tak
steps to have their claims surveyed anc
patented. By doing this, much litiga
tion, which is always a drawback to
wards making sales or developin'
property, will thus be avoided.
The mines around Ruby, Gothi.
Virginia City and Pitkin, with mor
development will prove to be as ric!.
as any in Colorado. The local paper,
of those places arc doing noble work
in giving facts and legitimate minim
news instead of indulging in highly
colored statements about the advan
tages of any particular locality.—Den
ver Mining Review.
A novel mining experiment is abou
to be made in the Upper Missouri.
Mr. Lissner, an old California miner,
has a dredging machine similar tc
those ased in mining river beds ii
Calitornia, and proposes at an earh
day to erect the machine in the bed
of the Missouri river, near Edmon
ston’s perry, for the purpose of pros
pecting and mining. It has long
" teen believtd that the beds of tlv.
Missouri and other large rivers ii.
Montana contained rich mines, pe -
haps richer than any mines heretofore
opened in the territory. Mr. Lissner
now proposes to test that qu ‘Stion.
His machinery is ample for the pur
pose. We understand that the tube
is capable of lifting from 300 to 400
tons of dirt in ten hours. The dirt is
t ken from the bed of the stream by
what is known as the vacuum process
and then washed in a boat.
