He was still young enough to know everything, aud while they waited for a ear he was giving her his opinion? on various subjects. As for her, she was so interested that she didn't know her feet were cold and forgot that the wind was blowing her hair out of curl. 44 Yes,” he was saying, ‘‘you may talk as you please about your bachelor maids, but l ean tell an old maul from a married woman by a glance. How do l manage it ? Oh, it’s easy enough. I can just tell her by her looks, and i am never mistaken.” “Yon were always so clever,” she murmured. ‘‘Now, l am sure I «'**ver could tin it. To be sure, a married v. em ail usually puts ou a bonnet sooner than an old maid does, but then some utTcct bonnets, ju.d I have seen a grandmother in a sailor lint, so that isn’t a sure test.” ‘‘Oh, it isn’t a matter of headgear with me, I assure you,” he replied, in a .patronizing tone. “Here, I’ll 1.1 you sec me Co it.

Why, it’s quite like Sher lock Holmes.” *‘Oh, no, you flatter me. It’s really quite simple. Observe the woman who is talking to her—the stout, nmtheriy iool.ing one. It does not require muen perspicuity to know that she is a happy wife. Notice her helpless uir and her general a* pearance of contcntmcn*.” ‘‘Positively, you are. so deep that I am actually afarid of you.” "Oh, uot at all. Notv, come a lit He closer, so we can hear their conversa tion, nnd you will see that I am right." ‘‘Oh, but 1 am sure that you are right without that.” Nevertheless, they moved on to a po sition immediately behind the pair. The tall, aggressive-looking woman was speaking: “Yes,” she wan raying.' this is the tenth anniversary of my wedding, though it hardly seems possible. J toll you. Mary Ellen, I have the best and tbe kindest husband in the whole world —and that is saying a great deni!” Then the stout motlierly-lookiDg per son rc«i>onded and there was vinegar in her tones. “WeTI, wnon I mui n man ns sensible as my Maltese cat, ns com forting as a cup of tea and ns entcr fain ing ns my political club I mnv follow your example, but not till then, Jane, not till then!” And the very young man!

The Bryan reception in Denver last Tuesday, was tiie grandest affair in the history of Colorado. • * • When Mr. Ilanna says McKinley got all he claimed for him he forgets Texas. • * » The death (or murder) of Hon. Frank I*. Arbuckle last week in New York, was a great shock to his many friends in this state. At the time of his un timely death, Mr. Arbuckle was register of the United States laud office at Den ver, and was serving his third term as chairman of the Democratic state cen tral corajnittee. He aided materially in the election of Governor Adams and the Democratic-Silver Republican ticket. * * • So many New Yorkers want cabinet places that President-elect McKinley may find it easier to turn them all down than to select one of them. The official returns are in from Routt and Summit counties. In the former Sheridan received 922 votes to 173 for Hindman, making his majority in Rio Bianco and Routt 1.082. Gaymon re ceived 910 votes iu Routt to 180 for Westerman, and in Summit county the vote stood 773 for Gaymon to 433 for Westerman. The Grand county vote is not yet published, but the majority there will be sufficient to bring Gay mon’s majority in the four counties up to nearly 1,500. It is Quite evident that this is an off year for Pops. In one of his addresses in Denver, Mr. Bryan said : “When I preach equality before the law, 1 am not seeking to take from any one that which is justly earned or to in terfere with the earnings hereafter of any amount that a person can acquire by bis own intelligence, his own indus try or his own thrift—l simply mean that the instrumentalities of govern ment shall not be turned to private gain, and that the great masses who tive halls shall not be plundered by the few who can send lobbyists there.” The above brief paragraph is an ex position of what the people want and will have, and is expressed in words which will become historic. What a grand leader in a righteous cause is this man Bryan. Another rival to the horse and the mule entered the field when Buffalo street cars began being hauled by power furnished by Niagara Falls. » * * Indications are that Mr. Hanna isn’t quite so positive about not taking an of fice for himself as be was. * * * Secretary Morton says New Jersey carries more farm mortgages in propor tion to area than any other state, and that the North Atlautic states have more farm mortgages than the same number of states in any other section. * * • Bismarck may not be as powerful as he once was, but he has just demonstra ted that he can still stir up the animals in tbe royal European meuagerie, when ever so disposed, by letting out a few diplomatic secrets. * * * Revivalist Moody is level-headed. He is now conducting a series of meetings for church members in New’ York City. Similar meetings might be held else where with profit to Christianity at large. # # * Precept is a good thing, but example always convinces more people in tin long run. * * • For a man who was announced as a has-been, ex-Senator Tom Platt, of | New York, emerged from the scrim mage with more than bis share of spoils. # * * The mere fact that the British govern ment expresses perfect satisfaction with the treaty providing for the arbitration of the Venezuelan boundary dispute is of itself enough to create American sus picion. Will It be Extermination ? The Routt county papers, the Pilot in particular, are complaining vigorously of the inefficiency of. State Game War dnl and. In a late issue the Pilot | •aid: **' e publish iu this issue the old, old •tol of game being slaughtered by the w)M isafe in Routt county. Year after as regularly as the seasons roll aromid, this disgraceful slaughter of our wil# game iccurs and year after year a gfr.ir warden either willfully iguor ant*., criwi ally incompetent, sits in hie I easy chair iu a handsomely fur nisf£d cilice in Denver and boasts of whi? he would do if lie only had the modify. We have looked at this matter troljjl every side aud have come to the contusion that this man Gordon Land is jKraud of the first water. * * * touching up wardens iu general, it man continues : “in the fall the game bunches up and moves to its winter rauge. This is the pot hunters opportunity. He can take a position by some of the well-known game routes and slaughter a dozen deer without moving out of his tracks. The deer are fat, the meat will keep and the horns are in prime condition. It is the only time of year that the temptation is strong to kill more than is needed for immediate use. The game from a large I section are gathered into a small strip! of C ; untry. This is the time the Utesi always make their raid, and they, with the help of their white brothers, slaugh ter more game in a few weeks than is killed in all the remainder of the year. But tiie money was all spent when the gamedidn’t need protection; now there’s no money, is the cry, to pay wardens when they need protection badly. “This action is repeated year after year. The game in this (Routt county) would last a hundred years if there were none to kill it but the settlers. It is the Utes and hide and horn hunters who are depleuting tiie game aud they gel in their deadly work late iu the fall when the game is on the move. But—the wardens are attending ’ to political duties and there is uo money, etc., etc. “This slaughter occurs at this 4.imo in advance and pinch it cut in its in ception. Instead of this the wardens wait till the season for slaughter is about over before they awaken from tbeir lethargy and then it is too late to do any good. At tiie present rate tive j more years will see the extinction of the last of the wild game in Northwestern Colorado.” Tiie Herald has always been len- j lent in criticising Mr. Land’s adminis-1 tralion of the game laws, but we must j admit that there has been at times lots of cause for criticism of his inefficiency • just as severe As the above. lie waited this fall till the first day of November before sending a man to the head of Piccanco creek to stop the slaughter that bad been going on in that region throughout October, and he didn’t get after the Indians until the second week in November, while lie knew, or ought to have known that they were at their old business of wholesale destruction for for'weeks preceding that time. And here Mr. Land’s old story of no funds came into play again, as usual, but in our opinion, the action taken in November to protect the game of this county could have been taken iu the fore part of Octo ber just as well, funds or no funds, and thousands of deer been thereby saved. Mr. .Land may ho a good fish commis sioner, but ho is certainly a dismal fail ure as a state game warden. We want to reduce our stock as much as possible before January Ist.

Especially if it. is very long, very | thick, and a most l>e:iut:ful color, yet cannot be worn hanging down in braids, because you are too tall for anything so childish, nor fastened up in a graceful Psyche knot at Hie back of the head, quite near the neck, because it is too j heavy, and comes tumbling down at in convenient. seasons. Lovely hair, but ail embarrassment of riches, is it not? If it were my hair, aud I were the dear young girl who finds it a bother ancl a burden, I would coil it up on top of my head and wear it like a crown. I wouldn’t mind Ms having the effect of making me look taller, and I would stand up very straight, and look as tall as 1 could. In my opinion height is a beauty, and I never care about a girl’s being tall, except to admire her. Tall girls must mind that they carry them selves well, and do not stoop nor crane their head forward as if they had lost something and were perpetually look- I ing for it. You remember Tennyson’s I picture, do you not, a word picture such : ns only a poet could paint: "A daughter of the gods. Divinely tall, and most divinely fair." If the coronal eff’ect were unbecom ing, or gave a feeling of weight on top of my head, then I would braid the liair iii several strands, nnd mass it all over the back of the head. I would simply piirt. it in the middle, and avoid fringes, , and bangs, nnd little curls, crimps, ancl other attempts at decoration in front, j \\ hen hair has a natural wave or ripple it is very pretty, nnd should have its j way, but straight liair i.« pretty too. and I gills should be satisfied to wear their hair in the style nature intended for them.—Harpers’ Round Table. > // Ifugus & Co. have a large line of goods suitable for the holidays—make your selection before assortment is broken.
