Decoration day will be fittingly ob served in Idaho Springs How many people know why May 30 was selected as the day in which all class es of people in tlie United States should pay homage to the dead ? It was chosen because it was the date when the last sol dier of the union army was mustered out of the service of the civil war. Everywhere in this broad land, where float the stars and stripes, will the inhab itants bow at the graves of the departed ones. In placing decorations on the graves of departed relatives and friends, the ones who gallantly fought for the preservation ; of this republic, and who have no near ones in this vicinity, should not be for gotten. They were brave men and true, and the hearts of all countrymen should open wide, never forgetting those who j suffered the hardships of war. At the meeting of the fire department, which was held on Wednesday night, it was decided that all members should par ticipate in the exercises to be held in Idaho Springs. The carts will not be dec orated, for the reason that Decoration day is always inspection day among the THE BEST OF ALL “From the records I have been able to obtain,” said Eugene Carl, manager of the Soda springs, “it is a safe prediction that Idaho Springs will entertain more visitors this summer than ever in its his tory. Every day I receive letteisfrom stockholders in the Big Five company asking me to secure houses for them dur ing the summer months. This I find is an impossibility. It took me three days to find one house for a man who lives in Ohio, leave alone finding enough for a regiment of people. The best I can do is to notify large parties that the safe and sure way to secure a place to sleep is to bring a tent and a roll of blankets. Al ready I am assured of enough visitors to occupy the ground along Soda creek for quite a distance. Many will be sent up on Soda hill, and things are going to be lively up our way. “We opened the pool three weeks ago and during that time we have registered more people than any other register for a previous year shows. The number is in creasing daily, and when the Sunday ex cursions commence tomorrow, the build ings and tunnels will be alive with peo pie. “At the present time Idaho Springs is getting more free advertising than any other place of its present standing ever FIRE BOYS MEET. Preliminary Matters Considered Concerning the Big Blowout. The fire laddies were out in force Tues day night. A meeting of the department was held at their rooms in the fire house for the purpose of making final arrange ments for the celebration which is to be held on July 3, 4 and 5. The meeting was called to order by Chief Reed, who announced that no time should be lost in getting everything in readiness, so that the affair could be properly advertised. He called upon mem bers who are working in the mines, ask ing what had been accomplished in the way of securing money for the prize drill. Many reported that they bad been prom ised by the mine owners and miners that donations could be expected as soon as definite action had been taken. Each man was furnished with a sub scription blank, and received instructions to hurry the work and report at the next meeting just how much money had been secured. The payments are to be made by June 10. It is necessary that SSOO should be raised, and one member report ed that he had already been pledged more than SSO, so it is quite evident that the members will have little difficulty in rais ing the required amount. The department as a body decided that a dance should be given on the evening of the Fourth, and accordingly the chair man appointed a committee of three to take entire charge of the affair. This committee will make its report at the next meeting. The running teams which will compete for the prizes in the firemen’s tourna ment, eive promise of giving the visiting teams a run for the money. No pains will be spared to get the speediest men in It Will Be Loyally | Observed in Idaho <j Springs .• .• .* .• I firemen, but the boys will be out in\force. Other organizations in the district will be asked to assist in the parade, among those being : Odd Fellows, Elks, Masons Workmen, Woodmen of the World, the various labor unions and others. Mayor Trathen is doing all in his power to assist in making the occasion a mem orable one, and says that many have promised to take part in the parade. It should not be forgotten that there are many graves which are filled by ex- Confederate soldiers, many of them hav ing sons who ably fought in the late Spanish - American war. Remember, every one, the gap which once was open between the North and South has been forever closed and this great republic is working in unison. It was only two years ago that the ex- Confederates marched directly behind the G. A. R. order in the Memorial Day parade in Denver, and it was a noticeable fact that the feeling of friendship was mutual between them. The union printers of Idaho Springs will send a delegation to Denver for the purpose of extending an invitation to the typographical union of that city to attend in a body and join in the exercises. Present Year Will Make Wonderful Tourist Showing.... received for a big amount of money. We have over 5,000 stockholders in the Big Five company and they are living in all parts of America and Europe. Remem ber that each party interested in the com pany has received a prospectus, and in addition to that they are deeply interest ed. The money that will be left in Idaho Springs this year alone from the stock holders will be no small item. “During the winter months, and espec ially this spring, we have been constantly at work making improvements on the baths. As you will notice we formerly did not have enough private rooms, but this feature has been remedied. We have added about a dozen rooms and all will be in first-class shape when the big crowd arrives tomorrow. A steam heating plant is being put in, and as soon as it is in working order, the pool will be kept open the year around. Yes, I look for a sea son of prosperity.” It is indeed a fact that the Soda springs are taking on an air of prosperity. The manager is never idle and is one of the most enterprising gentlemen in the city. He is courteous and kind, and always willing to show the visitors all the points of interest in connection with the enter prise. In fact he is the right man in the right place. the city to enter. On Wednesday night more than forty young men were on the streets, having commenced active train ing. The managers of both the hook and ladder and hose teams will pick the fast est men and thus make up their teams. Next week the boys will be out with wagon and carts and lively times are promised. Whooping Cough. A woman who has had experience with this disease, tells how to prevent any dangerous consequences from it. She says : Our three children took whooping cough last summer, our baby boy being only three months old, and owing to our giving them Chamberlain’s Cough Rem edy, they lost none of their plumpness and came out in much better health than other children whose parents did not use this remedy. Our oldest little girl would call lustily for cough syrup between whoops.—Jessie Pinkey Hall, Spring ville, Ala. This remedy is for sale by J. J. Sherwin. Old Soldier’s Experience. M. M.

Business men, property owners and others who live in Idaho Springs, have no objection to conversing and having a friendly visit paid them by George W. Meyers, who now makes his headquar ters in Georgetown. But it so happened that on Monday morning of this week, bright and early, Mr. Meyers, acting in the capacity of county assessor, slipped quietly into the city, That is where the kick comes in. If the honorable gentle man had come as a visitor in a friendly way he would have received a much warmer welcome, but as it was he did pretty well, considering the fact that he was handing the good people of this vi cinity a tax schedule, at the same time notifying them that it would be to their own interests to see that an early and proper return was made thereof. Mr. Meyers remained in the city all week, and said that it did his heart good to see his old friends in his own home. Sciatic Rheumatism Cured After Fourteen Years of Suffering. “ I have been afflicted with sciatic rheu matism for fourteen years,” says Josh Ed gar of Germantown, Cal. “ I was able to be around but constantly suffered. I tried everything I could hear of and at last was told to try Chamberlain’s Pain Balm, which I did and was immediately relieved and in a short time cured, and I am happy to say it has not since returned.” Why not use this liniment and get well ?
