SPRINGFIELD, - - COLORADO. Science Is slowly getting n strangle I'.old on the New Orleans mosquito. Some people are so afraid of a*boss that they won't enjoy a particle of lib erty. Mis. Harry Lehr says she is "very proud of her pet poodle.” But Harry has her affections. Genius does not live on glory. It has an account at the corn *r grocery just like the rest of us. Another racing motorist lias gone through the fence, but there is no sign cf stopping tlie foolishness. Castro announces that he is "going to fight the Yankees.” "Yankees" must be a new kind of booze. Jupiter will be surprised to learn that several now moons have been dis covered hanging around him lately. Will the men who are to be expelled from the Daughters of Liberty gel revenge by starting a rival organiza tion? A Boston spinster lias written a novel which she calls "Paradise.” It contains many more male than female characters. A Philadelphia cow is giving pink milk. She ought to bo able to dis pose of her entire output for Philadel phia’s pink teas. ■ Venezuela is preparing for war, but up to tho hour of going to press has not come to a decision as to the Iden tity of the enemy. Sailors say tho Gulf stream has nev er before been ns strong ns it is at present. Perhaps it lias merely caught the fever for fast going. As soon as this cruel war is over the work of rebuilding navies and otherwise preparing for the next big struggle will bo commenced. President Roosevelt occasionally wears a suit of $1 clot lies. Ami tho dudes doubtless think that he always | wears a shape of collar to match. With prophetic insight the author of the hymn beginning. "I would not live alway; I ask not to stay," must have written it for the automobilists. One would judge by the headlines of the papers Hint it Is nearly as danger ous to run an automobile as it Is to keep an empty shotgun about the house. The empress dowager of China has expressed a wish to see Secrotury Taft. And there is no doubt the sec retary would measure up to her ex pectations. American welcomes Russia’s new parliament but it is hardly probable that Gosudarstvendad Douma will ever become a household name i' the United States. An English burglar says thieves who are always very superstitious, will never rob a house in which a j cross-eyed servant is employed. Save your cross-eyed servants. A Philadelphia girl saved her fath er’s life by catching a hot foul from a baseball player's bat. Thus we see that there was at least one person in Philadlcphia who wasn’t asleep. A Cleveland woman has been held on a charge of manslaughter because she ran over and killed a man with her automobile. She, too. will be like ly to decide That the age of chivalry is past. It is claimed by one of our modern philosophers that no man can be hap I py while destroying his conscience I Some people can do the destroying so quickly that their unhappiness is of silght duration. * Sultan Kiran’s proposal to Mis'- Roosevelt, it appears, was only a mat ter of form. When an oriental poten tate wishes to be especially polite to n lady he throws in a proposal just as a delicate courtesy. A Cincinnati judge lias decided that howloAgedness is too common to hr depenJed upon as a mark of identifica tion. Its prevalence in Cincinnati I caused, probably, by the constant strain of walking up and down the steep hills. A contemporary prints the astound ing information that "infernal ma chines of a deadly character" were sent to New York millionaires. Strange that tho would-be assassins did not send infernal machines of a harmless, character. Down in Arizona a judge is accused of piesiding over the court with hi* feet on the desk. This compels attor neys to address themselves to the soles of two shoes, and also further deprives them of a full-si/.ed target in the event of any disagreement with the court. Photographs of Baron Koinurn, the principal Japanese envoy, show* that he wears a "pot hat" with a frock coat. This debars him from the \ circles of high diplomacy and reduces him to the ranks of mere rustlers. The London Spectator says it is "im possible for the cleverest American novelist to draw a recognizable Eng lishman.” In this respect the cleverest American novelist seems to labor un der the same difficulty that weighs upon the cleverest English novelist when he endeavors to draw an Amer ican. A woman who was worth SIOO,OOO died alone and friendless the other day in a New York hovel. Happy woman. The fear of ending her days in the poorhouse will never assail her again. EARTHQUAKE LOSSES 1 FOURTEEN HUNDRED PERISHED. . Great Disaster in Italy Grows in Hor ror with Later Reports—lndescrib able Scenes of Terror. Rome, Sept. 10.—Further details of the earthquake show that the damage if far greater than at first supposed.

The villages of Drapia, Frandsca, San Floro, ionadi, Daffira and Lonzl one are completely destroyed. Dead and wounded are being dragged from the debris. New shocks are felt this afternoon at Reggio and Messina. Ail the principal roads near Monte leone are lull of people. This town was almost completely destroyed. All the members of one family of eleven persons were killed. Many be came insane through fear. At Parghella the number of dead is estimated at 300 and at Lnppolio 200. Martirano is entirely in ruins and it is estimated that out of a population of 2.500 there are 2,000 killed or in jured. At Torzano there are six victims. At Cosenca, the principal church fell. All the houses that are still stand ing at Costello, lain, Castigiloni, Mor ano, San Lucido, Mario, Aogentao and San Martino are in danger of falling, and many people have been killed in each place. At San Serverlno the famous old ca thedral Is almost a complete ruin. At Jappolo there are 200 dead, at Borgia four and at San Floro ten. lr. l’izzo there arc 350 dead and half tho houses have been destroyed. A woman was found in Pizzo lying on the ground with her two children dead in her arms. At Palmi 300 houses are demolished and it is said slight shocks continue to be felt. From Stromholi all the population havo escaped to the Island of Eolie, one of the Li pari group. Many persons are still entombed in the ruins in these and other districts, and touching scenes are enacted when bodies are recovered and identified by grief-stricken relatives. In some cases whole families have been wiped out. Official figures of victims of the earthquake in tho province of Catan zaro show that 450 dead have already been found, that about 1,000 were in jured and that there are an enormous number of persons without shelter. The greatest agitation continues among the populace. Slight shocks of earthquake are felt occasionally, and 'subterranean rumblings arc still heard. Those persons still possessing homes refuse to enter them. Vesuvius is still in active eruption and the How of lava lias increased, al ready passing the rails of the Funicu lar road and causing great damages to the station at the top. Professors of the Specula Romans say that the vol canic eruptions of Vesuvius and Strom boll are quite distinct from the earth quake and have no relation to it. COLUMBUS DAY.

THE OLDEST VETERAN. Fought in the Black Hawk War, Mexi can War and Civil War. Denver, Colo., Sept. B.—At the head ot the department of Wisconsin, close j to the colors, in the great Denver pa rade Wednesday, there matched the I oiliest soldier in the Northwest, Will j Jam Taylor, of La Crosse. He was | born on the 10th of May, 1806, and con sequently is past ninety-nine years of j age. He was a soldier in tlie Black l Hawk war and even before that, fought Indians in Wisconsin. He was in tlie regular army and stationed at Fort Crawford, Prairie DuChien, Wisconsin, at the time Gen. Zach Taylor com manded there, and was in Taylor's army throughout tho Mexican War. In 1861 he enlisted as a private In the Fourteenth Wisconsin and served four years. He lias resided at La Crosse ever since then. Mr. Taylor has attended many of tlie national en campments, lias always been in tho pa rades from the beginning to tlie end, and yesterday, erect as a regular, marched the entire distance with appa rently less fatigue than any oilier man from tlie Badger State. While the Wisconsin contingent was waiting for the parade to begin, sev eral of tlie members, including Depart ment Commander Copeland, urged the old gentleman to sit down, and even went so far as to get him a chair. His gray eyes fairly snapped as he said, "I came here to stand in lino and then march with my comrades; not to be seated like an old granny. If any of tho rest of you youngsters want to sit down, do so, but I will not set you the example.” CHAMBER OF COMMERCE GUESTS. Resolution of Thanks Tendered to Gen. George W. Cook. Denver, Colo..

"To every national encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic for years past an invitation from the Den ver Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade has been extended to hold its next encampment in Denver. To secure its acceptance with so many rivals for the honor required tact and perseverance. "The citizens of Denver feel highly honored with the presence of so many brave and distinguished men, and arc very much pleased with the manner in which they have been entertained. "Many have contributed to make this encampment a great success, but no one lias worked more faithfully, energetically and efficiently than Gen. George W.

I Tho negotiations received no official recognition in tho field prior to their ’ successful conclusion, tlie army keep ing in a state of preparation for a bat ; tie until the receipt by General Line* vitch of a telegram from Emperor Nicholas declaring that tlie treaty had , been signed and that his majesty ac- I cepted the conditions arrived at. This telegram was officially pub lished in the army newspapers on Sep tember 6th, and the outlines of ilie peace conditions were printed in tlie same publication to-day.

FRUITFUL FURNACES INTENSE HEAT PRODUCES PRECIOUS STONEB. Scientists Have Succeeded In Pluck ing Real Diamonds and Rubies from the Crucible of the Furnace. Recent advices from France state that Prof. Moissan, the eminent sci entist and Inventor, has actually suc ceeded in making genuine diamonds and rubies. He employs for this pur pose the electric furnace, which has been so improved that a degree of heat can be produced, approaching the extreme temperatures, which were un doubtedly a factor in the formation of minerals and gems in the interior of the earth. v The rubies obtained are of large size, weighing 10 or 15 carats, and in quality and color equal and oven sur pass those found in the earth. The natural forces attending the. formation of diamonds seem to have been in un complicated, and so far tho diamonds resulting from tlie efforts of the sci entists have been very small, but still they are positively identified as the carbon crystal—the diamond. They are remarkably clear and bright, and on a small scale ns lino specimens as nature’s own product. Tbo electric furnace has enriched chemistry with a whole series of new compounds. Probably the one of most value to mankind at large is Cal cium Carbide. Tho simple applica tion of water to Calcium Carbide gen erates the gas Acetylene, which is now being commonly used for light ing. The peculiar merits of Acetylene light are its brilliance and high can dle power, ease of installation, eco nomy and its adaptability for lighting buildings of every description, regard less of their location. What Galls the Westerner. One tiling that annoys and humili ates a western man in N'-w York Cit> is the way in which he is herded with tlie crowd. Out. West a man is an in dividual.

Then my nerves gave way and I was completely prostrated. 1 frequently suffered from 6iuothcring sensations. ** Tho first box of Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills that I used quieted my nerves so that I could get a good night's sleep, which was a new experience for me. Before I began to use them I was n nervous wreck and trembled at the slightest sound. I was so weak that l hod to sit down and rest ovoryfew steps when I went np stairs. Now I can run up a whole flight at once. Tho smother ing sensations have gone and the noises iu my head have stopped entirely.
