Somewhere along Ibe 100 miles of railroad which con lects Cripple Creek and Florence, "olo, is cached a fortune in golden sagles. Among the rocks and boulders B,.a hidden 10,000 in gold, and it is ery probable that it will never be found uuless some lucky hunter by chance discovers the cache where is hidden the fortune. iu the bummer of 1S93 the money was taken from the safe of an express car by aix masked train robbers. All of the robbers are now dead, and there is nothing to mark the hiding place of their 111 gotten wealth. The last of the robbers was a man by the name of Marks. On the day which he set to unearth the treasure he died at his office in Cripple Creek from pneu monia. Marks and one other robber were the only men who knew the hld lnt Dlace of the niouey. They carried It it sanva bags into the hills along th railroad tracks near the scene of the hold up and buried it under the rocks, while their four confederates held the trainmen and express messen- rera at bav with their rifles. The robbers planned to allow xjie money to remain niauen iur -''' years, so that there could be no chance of their being discovered In passing h. After the hold up the six men sepa rated, going to utfferent parts of the country. Marks ana me man m assisted him In burying me gom re mained in Cripple Creek together.

A short distance from this square Is auother stone with a hatchet sketched on its surface, the edge of the hatchet blade pointing di rectly to the place where the excava tion was made. Mr. Diilard says he had often no ticed the stones, but supposed they were simply an old landmark. The supposition is that the vessel con tained money and the find may be con nected w ith an old story that has been told in that section ever since it was first settled. This story Is that in the country between Comanche peak and Robin son creek a large quantity of gold had been buried by parties who on their return from the goldfields of Califor nia were attacked and killed by the Indians then Infesting ttt. country.

Judge Seaman administered a blow to monopolies in restraint ol traae in nia uwiowu w j other day in favor of the J. I. Case company In the "wind stacker" case. The suit was brought by the Indiana Manufacturing company to recover royalties on a patent stacker. All thrashing machine makers have been compelled to pay royalties to the In diana concern, which owns 200 pat ents. The Case company some time ago invented a stacker of Its own and declined to continue the royalties. J udi;e Seaman, in his decision, con fined himself to the claim that the contract with the Indiana concern was in violation of the Sherman law.

Ia Since the death of George Wells, the eccentric Iowa millionaire, at his home in Grnndy Center it develops that many of the business houses at Wellsburg. the thriving German town In Grundy county named after the millionaire, are built on lots for which the owners have no deeds except that which conies from verbal asre-ement and the fact of occupancy in peaceful posses sion for a number of years. It appears that Mr. Wells had a great habit of deferring action in many of his deals, trades and trans actions, that he disused of lots, gave the buyer possession and stated that he would make a deed some day. be ing too busy to attend to the trivial work of executing the deed. Mr. Weils carried his books In his head, so to speak, and many of hi old time friends took his word for many things, expecting, of course, to receive the deed in time, but realizing after the old man's death that they had no the I title to their property. A umr.er oi legal actions will be the outcome of DETROIT HAS ARMLESS DOG. i w- ! was to be in his The bride of to-day Is a very lucky Individual, for, besides her wedding presents, she has all aorta of delight ful affairs given by her intimate friends. There are "stocking," "band keiiUW-r," "plate and cup and saucer," "linen," "book," "flower," "kitchen" and "novelty" showers. Some or all of these functions are likely to fall to the lot of a girl who announces her en gagement. and who gives her friends this opportunity to show their good will. Great care should be taken that only one's nearest and dearest friends are asked to parties of this kind ; strangers or mere calling acquaint ances should not be asked to contrib ute, for it would be embarrassing both tn th elver and the recitiient. this is one of the instances where a host ess must be sure of who the bride elect would like to be oresenL Re member that the "gift without the giver is bare." One of the very latest fads Is a "turnover collar shower." Each guest Is asked to bring material for a turn over and her thimble, and at the con clusion of an afternoon the fair (we take It for granted that adjective ap plies, as It seems to be the preroga tive of a bride to be termed thusly) bride-to-be will have a number of these useful accessories to her trous seau. The "book shower" must be ar ranged by a person who can find out what volumes the recipient does not possess, so there will not be dupli cates. The name of the donor with an inscription will greatly enhance the value of the gift, and it is safe to say that this collection will be more than prized when placed upon the book shelves of the new home. The hand kerchief and linen showers are both pretty. Each article can be thrown at the bride until she Is fairly buried under the white offering. The "china" shower is always a fa vorite, and a unique way wag devised for the stocking shower by having a large "shoe" candy box in the center of the luncheon table with a ribbon going to each place; when the rib bons were pulled all drew out favors except the honored guest, who drew out a number of white packages, all rolled tight in white tissue paper a pair of silk hose from each guest present. A flower shower Is the very pret tiest of all, and should be given the day before the wedding. Each guest hrtnpu bunch of flowers, and the bride is literally showered with bios soms from a huge floral ball suspend ed in a doorway. Have a large ball made of wire, cover wtlh moss, and fill closely with flowers; carnations make a perfect sphere. The ball is made in halves and filled wtih rose petals. When farewells are being said the hostess pulls a ribbon which sep arates the two halves, releasing the petals, which fall upon the young woman who Is about to leave tne realm of single blessedness for the new and unknown way. This scatter ing rose leaves on the pathway of a bride in a venr old custom. some profitable way. while if nine or( ten hours are required tney snouiu be taken, even if the recreation period has to be cut short.
