Frank Hall, of Denver, is j going to write a history of Colorado. 1 From fifteen to fifty wagon loads ; of lumber leave Lamar daily. Some j idea of the building going on in this country can be formed from this amount of lumber. Hearsay evidence is not good and yet reporters continually speak of elegant sappers given by Mrs. So and So. The Lamar papers arc chuck full! •>f business news. Lamar is a great big lively town and her citizens are ; awake to the interests of the place. —Vilas Democrat. A young >&dy has charge of the j Western Union telegraph office at j Las Vegas, Xew Mexico, and Kisler, i>f the Optic, says she attends strictly j i to business and is awful nice. ; M.

The least thing will cause a man to lose his temper and swear, while a woman will calmly bite her lip and remain silent. I can easily see how a woman can stumble oyer a chair rocker and light head-first j into an open bureau drawer, without i "etting angry, because there are J always lots of nice soft shirts and I things to fall on; b it for the i !

The Denver «& Rio Grande rail ! road will not issue passes to country ; editors. The Denver Republican in j speaking of the matter among other j good things says: “Whether this j policy ot issuing passes to certain j persons, while at the same time they I are not issued to country editors, is due to a partial change of heart in ' some of the officials, or whether it j is a new policy born of the change j in the management, is a question which we are not trying to decide. We know that it is nonesense for j the Rio Grande to say that it is pro hibited by the Inter-State Commerce law from issuing passes within the limits of this state. We know also that when in issuing passes it dis criminates against the editors or proprietors of couutry papers it pur sues a policy of stupidity almost un paralled in the history of railroading.
