MEEKER • COLORADO^ The younger a man 13 the more ho has to unlearn. Our mistakes contribute much to the wisdom of others. Every dog has hie day. but, like men, they always want two. Uncle Sam will capture the capital prize In the Havana lottery. Things are actually what they seem —about one time In a hundred. Youth Is going to do things tomor row that old age didn’t do yesterday. When a woman loves a man she loves to make him believe that f*ie doesn't. The briny breakers at the seashore are less dangerous than the heart breakers. The floorwalker says the girl in charge of the glove department la a counter-fitter. A great many of the thoughts a man has today appeared in yesterday’s newspaper. The trouble with the disagreeable things people say about us is that most of them are true. What a man can do la his greatest ornament, and he always consults his dignity by doing It. It’s a shame that Prof. Norton of Harvard hasn't had time to make a republic to suit him. A man never realizes the worthless ness of his earthly possessions until he tries to pawn them. When a man Isn't willing to practice what ho preaches, it's about time for him to give up preaching. A marriage without love and a steam holler without a safety valve indicate that some one Is going to get blown np. Clubs are often detrimental to a man's welfare—especially those in the hands of policemen and expert poker players. The noblest labor that can be per formed is for a man to take the rough materials of human nature and mold them Into a saintly soul. Remember that the great world Is a theater-your part in the play Is de termined by the poet; but its perform ance depends upon yourself. Do not wait for extraordinary oppor tunities for good actions, but make use of common situations. A long contin ued walk is better than a short flight. Jessie Schley has at least made a name for herself by her efforts for peace, but if anybody asks us what there is in a name we shall not say a word. A whisper of peace, thinks Sagasta, should be followed by a cessation of hostilities. As In the fairy stories, the armies and navies should immediately go to sleep, to be awakened only by the messenger of peace, or more likely by the going off of Spanish guns. Oh. no: that Is going too fast. Had the whis per come before war did things would have been different, but there was a long and bloody delay. "The nation's aim should be to as similate whatever knowledge the world has to offer, and with the strength thus obtained from without and with in, to push resolutely forward toward intellectual enlightenment and mate rial development.” The words were recently addressed to his own people by the Marquis I to, the great states man of Japan. Under the Inspiration of such leadership. Japan is moving into the front rank among the na tions. We certainly have no undue sympa thy for Captain Carter, but we cannot refrain from saying that certain features of the sentence are barbarous and ought not to be carried into ef fect, even if. instead of purloining a paltry sum of 13,000,000. he had carried off the whole United States treasury, including the gold reserve and the other contents of the vaults. It was right enough to dismiss him in disgrace from the army, to make him forfeit all his pay, and to imprison him for ten or twenty years at hard labor in a penitentiary, but the last feature of Carter's sentence—that “any officer speaking to or addressing Carter will he accused and tried for scandalous conduct"—la the rankest injustice, to the Innocent as well as to the guilty. It is the worst medieval barbarism, probably, that survives in form of law or etiquette at the present day. To the attentive eye each moment of the year has Its own beauty, and in the same field it beholds every hour a picture which was never eeen before, and which never shall be seen again. The heavena change every moment and reflect their glory or gloom oa the earth beneath. If the Porto Ricans do not belie all reports of them they will soon be on the way to atatohood, when they will enjoy all tho rights and privileges ol other state# and bear their ebare of the national responsibilities. DESTRUCTION WAS APPALLING. The West Indian lturrica-ie bid Awfal Dibui* to Life nail Property. Kingston. Jamaica, Sept. 17.—Detail* | of the hurricane, which are constantly coining In. show the disaster to have been Infinitely worse than was at first , expected. The destruction at Barba- j does was fully 'equal to that at Bt. | Vincent, while Bt. Lucia also suffered considerably. The Island of Itarbad. es, presenting practically a flat surface, was com pletely swept by the vortex of the cy clone, the result being that the entire area of cultivation was obliterated, while a majority of the residences ami other buildings were destroyed. The population was seeking shelter at Bridgetown and other centers, only to find them little more than masses of ruin. The consequent distress is unparalleled in the history of the West Indies, and the governor lias cabled that instant and continuous outside re lief Is absolutely necessary in order to overt widespread famine aud iwssibly a resultant pestilence. The actual extent of fatalities has not yet been ascertained, owing to the extent of the ruiu wrought through out the island. National I'n'verslty Plana. Winona, Minn..

The committee is a very strong one mid thoroughly representative, ixitli of the various educational institutions of the country aud of the several sec tions. Central American Federation. Managua. Nicaragua, Sept. 19.—The constitution—forming delegates from Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua, in their attempt to formulate a compact acceptable to those three states, have separated Into distinct groups on the question of tho article authorizing the government organized to collect and dispose of all Import duties. The delegates from Salvador declare that the Imports and exports of their country exceed those of Honduras and Nicaragua combined, although Salva ior has ’ess than one-fourth the area of cither of the other states, aud conse quently that the burden of taxation will, under the proposed articles, have to Im* liorue .»v Salvador, which un equal mode of taxation she declines to assume. One of the delegates from Honduras proposed ns a substitute that each state contribute Its proper pro rata of the necessary expenses of tho federa tion. Already two of the prominent members of die constitutional conven tion from Salvador have resigned. Ornrral /.urllntlen Resigns. Paris, Sept. 17.—(Jetieral Zurlindeti. the minister for war. has tendered his resignation. He sent his written resig nation to Premier Brlsson ns follows: “I have the honor to Ik*k you to re ceive my resignation as minister for war. An exhaustive study of the pa pers in the Dreyfus case lias convinced me too fully of ids guilt for me to ac cept, ns the head of the army, any other solution than that of the main tenance of the judgment In its entire ty."

The Century for September prints an article on "Life and Society in Old Cuba," l>e|ng extracts from the journal •if Jonathan S. Jenkins, an American painter of miniatures, written in 1859. Mr. .Teukins says: When an acquaintance visits a pri vate residence, cigars are handed round on n silver salver: If the visitor lie an intimate friend, one of the young girls of tho family, called a "donzalia." lights a cigar and giving it a few draws to get well lighted, gracefully presents it to him. If the guitar is brought In, as usually occurs (for then* is one in every house), and the visitor plays, his cigar Is kept lighted by the donzalia, and at each pause in the mu sic she politely bonds It to the guest. Miss Wlaale Darla Dead. Narragansett Pier, R. 1., Sept. 18.— Miss Winnie Davis, daughter of Mrs. Jefferson Davis, died at noon to-day nt the Rockingham hotel, to which place she came as a guest in the early part of the Pier's social season. She bad been 111 for several weeks, and a fortnight ago her ailment was diagnosed as malarial gaatrltla. At times her condition became very aerl ous so that consultations of physicians were deemed necessary, but frequent tallies gave renewed hope that she would ultimately recover. ALL READY TO LEAVE. EVACUATION OF PORTO RICO. Spaniard* IVIII Sooa Dapart-fh* Bracu atlnn of Cuba Will Bo a Slaw Pro era* Sail Juan. I'orto Uico. Sept. 18.— The preparations for tbe embarka tion of the Spanish troops are re- Isorted to l>e complete, although tbe American commissioners have not been officially advised to that effect. Two ships of tbe Companla Trans- Atlanticn Company are expected to arrive here on the 2fltb Instant. Five vessels will Im* required to transport all the luggage and field artillery and equipment. The Porto Iticmn troops are to Im> landed near Cadiz. The United States commissioners have agreed that sticli troops ns de sire to remain here may* do so, and practically all the volunteers and Rome of the regulars whose families and interests are here will remain. If tin* necessary ships were here the Island would lie evacuated and for mally in our | tosses si ou within three days. The American commissioners are highly gratified with the spirit shown by the Spaniards. The miexi>ected lias happened. Where it was expected that npfHiHition and delay would he encountered, none have lieen found. In good faith the S|uinish commis sioners have met the Americans and arranged with them the terms of evacuation. Our commissioners ex l>ect to see the American flag hoisted and the Spanish flag hauled down forever within three weeks. Havana. Sept. 18.—To-morrow the commissioners and tlieir entire staffs will reinyve to the Troclia hotel, at Vedndo. which has lieen put iu excel lent sanitary condition. The general health nlM>ard the steamer Resolute Is good. An otth-hil meeting of the Spanish evacuation commission was held last night to consider the form of evacua tion by the Spanish troops, and with the object of acquaint lug the Ameri can commission with the exact num ber and positions of flic Spanish sol diers, and the ls*st methods of em barking them. This afternoon there were sent 011 hoard the Resolute sealed documents supposed to contain the statement of the results of last night’s conference. It is understood that It Is proposed to start the evacuation from east to west, embarking the troops at the ports of Glhnrn. Neuvitas, Cieiifuegos and ILivana. The official statement of the number of Spanish soldiers in the island Is said to place the aggregate nt 100,000. and it is understood that it is proposed that the men shall carry with them tlieir arms, ammunition, material and equipments. It is estimated that the end of Feb ruary will have come liofore the evac uation of the island Is complet<*d. ns the soldiers must emliark In Spanish vessels. It is suggested that this will he tin advantage to both countries, tin* United States linving an opportu nity to acclimatize Its men during the winter months, as It Is pro loosed that the American government shall land troops to occupy each post simulta neously with Its evacuation, ltot leav ing the post tingunrd<*d nt any time. Vmdtlu Create* Alarm. Naples. Sept. 18.—A state of gloomy apprehension prevails among the poj>- ulation regarding the eruption of Ve suvius. which is hourly becoming more active and menacing. Streams of lava are spreading In every direction. The most threaten ing of these flows Is through the Ve drlno valley, which Is almost filled. The observatory, which originally stood nt a height of 810 metres, is now only 27 metres above the sen level, owing to tho sinking of the ground. Seven new craters have formed around the central one, and this has not tended to diminish the fears for merly felt, which were based upon the eruption of stones and scoriae similar to that which occurred in 1872.

WHAT VISITORS SAY. Praia* From Prominent Maa tor ths Trial. Ml«s'sslpp4 Kspasltloa. Omaha. Sept. 19.—Governor C’uL IM-rson of Texas headed a large party of citizens of the Lone star state to Omaha and. in speaking of the expo sition on his return, said: "It is sim ply wonderful aud stands a splendid second to the great World's Fair. I am delighted, simply delighted, and very proud of the |iart Texas has taken in the great Trans-Mississippi show.” Ex-Governor F. R. Lubbock of Tex as descrilied Omaha "as a most beau tiful. busy city, with wide, elegantly puved streets, broad aud fine side walks. lovely parks, mognifieeut pub lic buildings, handsome and costly residences.” Of the exposition he said: "It is elaborate and most ele gant In all its proportions, giving great satisfaction to the immense multitude in attendance. This under taking represents a wonderful nniouut of pluck aud enterprise ou the part of the people of Nebraska, which It would delight me to see Texas emu late.” General Manager Y'oeuni of the St. Louis & San Francisco Railroad, after insiH*ctlng the grounds and buildings at the exjiosition. said: "It Is grand. It is superior to the expositions for merly held. The buildings are lienuti fitl and they are ho nicely arranged. The huildiugs. however, are but a small part of the exiM>sltloii. The ex hibits are the things that tell the tale of the wealth of the country. They are magnificent, mid the showing that is being made ought to convince the |M*ople who come here that the Traus- MiSMissippi region is the Ikmic and sinew of this great Republic.” Admiral George Brown. U. X. X. (re tired). of Indianapolis, after spendiug a day on the grounds, was enthusias tic in his praise of the exposition, judging it from a |M*rs<mal compari son with others held in the last twenty-five years. He said: "Iu Its perfection of detail and general ef fect It was unsurpassed even by the World’s Fair, and as for other recent exiHisitions, they weren’t a picayune side-show. The government exhibit is more complete and satisfactory than any which have gone lieforc. Those iu charge seem to have profited by their previous experiments in what is interesting and profitable for public inspection.” MONEY ORDERS FOR HOME USE Tl»*y Can Now Be Used as Bank Checks. Washington, Sept. 17.—The public ' will greatly appreciate the convenience } afforded through an order Issued to ' day by First Assistant Postmaster j General Heath, which authorizes post masters to issue money orders payable at tlieir own offices. This practice has not been heretofore followed, and the new departure will be an a<*couimodntlou to the great number of people who, not having an account with a bank, desire to follow this economical and absolutely safe niethml in payment of bills, etc. Those money orders may now be used, for illustration, In payment of gas hills, merchant's and grocer's bills, etc. In sniull places the person in debted to a farmer may have an or der drawn in favor of the latter, pay able to him at any time and sent to him by a neighbor who obtains and delivers the mall for the neighbor hood. the entire cost, say for $lO, be ing 10 cents. Very Particular Soldier*. Washington, Sept. 19.—Paymaster General Stanton lias turned over to the President all the pupers relating to the recent unpleasantness growing out of the refusal of a Texas regiment to re ceive pay from Major Lynch because he is colored. The President has taken no definite action l>eyond expressing approval of General Stanton's course In sending a sharp dispatch to the commanding pay master of that department, stating in effect that ns Major Lynch had lieen regularly commissioned by the Presi dent ns an army paymaster, the troops must take their pay from him or else go. without pay. Thus the matter sta'nds. with the papers before the President. There is the possibility that a new question may arise on the point of In sulHirdinatlon in refusing to receive pay from paymasters regularly com missioned to make payments. Mclntyre Court Martial.

At the close of the civil war a reap er now selling for $75 coat $120; a steel plow, now costing $12, sold for $26; a potato digger, now costing $7, sold for $25; grain scythes, now costing $9 a doaen, coat $26; shovels, now costing $t adosen, coat $20; binders, now coat ing $130, cost $400, and mowing ma chines, now coating $50, cost $110. As this process of reduction has been go ing on, the product of American fac tories in tbe line of agricultural imple ments bas been generally extended and vastly improved, so that the United 8tates are now not only at the head of all other countries, but so far at the bead of other countries that there has practically ceased to be any serious competition except in respect to the supplies sold by certain European countries to their colonies. Through tbe free markets of the world, without restrictions established by govern ments, the United States are the great source of supply. The importance of the business carried on both at home and abroad by the United States manu facturers of farming implements Is shown by the figures of the last federal census of 1890. There were at that time, approximately, 1,000 manufactor ies of agricultural implements in the United States, the amount invested In this line of manufacture being nearly $150,000,000, the average number of persons employed In it being 45,000, the materials used averaging in value $30.- 000,000 and the output $80,000,000. Since the summer of 1892 the American trade in agricultural Implements has been subjected to a marked prostration. The export trade of the country in agricultural implements has continued large and has eVen Increased: rt$3 (fiscal year) $4,657,000 1894 (fiscal year) 5,027,000 1895 (fiscal year) 5,410,000 1896 (fiscal year) 5,176,000 1897 (fiscal year) 5,240,000 The Argentine republic has been the chief customer of the United States in this item of manufacture, and the South American countries and West Indies have been customers to a small er extent. But while the foreign mar ket has continued, the home mar ket for American agricultural products has been curtailed greatly, in conse quence of the failure of some crops,, the diminished prices for cereals, the accumulation, west and south, of mort gages and the contraction of credit to farmers, who, as a rule, buy their agri cultural machinery on credit, pajgnent being predicated on the success of the crops and of paying prices for them. As a result of the agricultural depres sion In tbe west in 1893, 1894, 1895 and 1896, it is hardly too much to say that the farming Implements used during the past five years in the United States have been literally wearing out. The large concerns have been carrying their customers on credit, and with large debts outstanding the farmers general ly speaking, have been awaiting the return of better times and better prices. The favorable conditions of a year ago were not without their effect on this branch of business, and those of this , year are being reflected in the enlarged market for farming machinery, reap ers, threshers, plows, rakes, binders, scythes and harrows. At the head of the states of the country in the volume of Its manufacture of agricultural im plements is Illinois, with an invested capital of nearly $60,000,000. Ohio fol lows, then New York and then Wis consin. Ohio supplies most of the southern market of demand and New York the middle and eastern states. Of recent years California has develop ed its manufacture of farming imple ments largely. Cona*crstlon. We Consecrate a church, and we think that God, in some peculiar and special way is there.
