Not j long ago the ageut of an eastern com p»ny, attracted by the fine location and lbs able management displayed in the business recommended it to . his principals as a good investment, and the cooscqueuce was that a half interest io tlje place was sold to the cotripany, the number of cattle was , increased to 5,000 bead, and Mrs. Barbour was employed as general manager of the entire business. At the same time that she was putting j up the buildings aud making the necessary improvements for the cat tle ranch, she had a force of men at .

She has the most perfect i order and system in every department | of the business, and has rendered a valuableuscrvice to ranchmen gener ally by Baoii6trating the fact that j cowbftys xan be gentlemen.

THH THXAg PA.N--KA.N dle route. IT enver, Texas As Port Worth Railroad. PASSKNi, KR DEPARTMENT. To Comrade* of the Grand Army of the Republic: The battle gronnda of the Rebell, 100, aitnaled to the States of Miaeiaa. ippi, Tennerace and Georgia are of the greatest interest to ninny thou sands of n«, as the centres of year. ' of our military services and personal experiences, to which we look back with soldierly pride. As the years • that have gone have made dim the ( memories of places once so familiar to un, places where we once “made i things lively”—places where oar comrades lie buried many of us de ; sire to revisit them, to recall upon the spot the many sliring incident* of our young manhood. Vicksburg, Chattanooga and Atlanta were great central points to the Western Army, where Grant, Sherman, Thomas, Me Pherson, Logan, Rosecrans, Howard, and scores of other brave leader*, • bowed us the stuff they were made of, and yet but few of all the men who were in the ranks during the war have ever returned to visit these places. Great number* of our coin j ra«ics of the Ariuv of the Potomac I*o to Gettysburg and other noted t«ttk-6rlds of the Hast, while few if any from west of the Missouri have ( over had an opportunity to visit these j uiosl listed fields fought over by the Western Army. The occasion of the meeting of the N'ational Kncampiuent, G. A. 11.. at Columbus iu September can be made the opportunity for a trip to these places of great interest, at compara tively little additional cost. I pro j pose an excursion from Colorado to Columbus over the following route: via the Denver, Tex\n «fe Ft. Worth Railroad through Ft. Worth, Dallas and Shreveport direct to Vicksburg, stopping there sav twenty-four hours, then v ia Jackson. Meridian and Look ost mountain to Chattanooga, stop ping there say two days, from Chat tanooga to Atlanta and return, going both ways through Chickainauga, Ringgold, Tunnel Ilill, Daltou, Re saoa, Kingston, Allatoona, Dig Shan ty, Kennesaw and Marietta; this trip to take say two days with stopovers is desired, and then from Chattanoo ga direct through Cincinnati to Co lumbus, arriving there September 10th or llth. Running either direct to Colorado or via Nashville, Cor inth and Memphis. This will be a trip so full of interest tor old sol diers, their wives and children, that it seem* to mo none who go to Co lumbus can afford to rniss it. I will arrange ahead for sleepers, hotels, carriages, saddle horses, guide, etc., j and do everything in my power to I make the excursion a pleasant one. I think comrades can safely trust me to arrange for a pleasant excursion iu viow of my success iu that line during the past few years. I have not yet completed all ar rangements for rates, bet nave assur ance enough to say that the rate will be reasonably low considering the distance and the points reached. I will be ready toannouuoc the rate in a few days, and in the meantime would like to hear from all who will join this excursion, and I will send them complete details as soon as ar ranged. Members of the Woman’s Relief Corps and Sons Veterans are cordial ly invited to join in this excursion. Yours very truly, Geo. Adt, Gen’l Pass. Agent. The Deniorats are strongly oppos ed to trusts monopolies, yet their newly elected national chairman is closely connected with the Standard Oil company, and because of that profitable relation has beeorne about a ten times millionaire.— Denyer Times. LAMAR, COLORADO, SATURDAY, AUG. 4th, 1S88. Headquarters's of Grand Army of the Republic Minneapolis, Minn., July 10,’88 General Order No. 9. In view of the period of great po litical excitement upon which the' Country i* now entering, the Com- i mander-in-Chief deems it his duty to call the attention of all comrades to the following extract from the Rules and Regulations: “No officer or comrade of the Grand Army of the Republic shall, in any manner, use this organization for partisan purposes, and no discuss ion of partisan questions shall be permitted at any of its meetings, nor shall any nomination for political of fice be made. 1 * Art. XI, Chap. 5. The continued prosperity and use fulness of our fraternity depends up on the avoidanefi of even a suspicion that it can be used by any person or in any locality for any partisau pur pose whatever. The members of the organization, as citizeris of their I country, have all the rights and are! subject to all the duties of citizen j ship. They have, and should have,] their political convictions and party j affiliations and their right to advo- i cate and proclaim them and differ in ' regard to them as they do, is in no ; wise questioned; but fidelity to the principles of the organization and a ! due regald for its efficiency and wel fare urgently demand that any and j every violation of the letrer or spirit of the above cited rule should be -tudiouslv avoided and promptly con demned. Comrades are reminded that the uniform of the Order should not be worn at any political gather ing and they are admonished to dis countenance the use of all political badges or devices in any way calcu lated to associate the Grand Army ••f the Republic with any political party or candidate. To the end that the fraternal ties which now unite us may not be impaired by partisan con tentions, this warning is promulgated and Commanders of Departments and Posts are directed to supplement the same by all proper methods. By Command of John I*. Rea, Commander-in-chief. David Fish. Adjutant General. Teacher: “Miss Sinnico, please parse the sentence, 'Adolphus mar ried Caroline.*” Miss S.: “Well, ‘Adolphus’ is a j noun, because it is the name of a thing; ‘married’ is a conjunction, be- i cause it joins Adolphus and Caroline,; and ‘Caroline* is n verb, ’couse it gov-1 erns the noun.”—Ex. C. G. Tucker, a cousin of J. Ran dolph 'Fucker of Virginia, iH a resi dent of North Springfield, Illinois, and a Justice of the Peace. He has long been a democrat of the staunch est pattern and voted for Cleveland in 1884, hut he has now laid down j under the load and says ho can j stand it no longer. Taking the St. Louis platform and Cleveland's ad ministrative record together he won ders that any democrat cac stand it. He says he can find no point of Cleveland’s aute election promises and pledges that have been fulfilled, and in general he sums up his objec tions to the democratic nominee thus: “Instead of a reformer he has proved himself to be a dull and stupid aris tocrat, a bull headed politician, a hol low fraud, and I am done with him. I intend to vote for Harrison and Morton. Spblngfiel, 111., July 24. —The democratic papers of the state hav ing published a report that General I. H. Elliott, of Princeton, Illinois, late adjutant general of the state, had deelarao himself a supporter of Cleveland and the St. Louis plat form, the General writes a letter to Sam 11. Jones of this city to say there is not a shadow of truth in the report. He states that in 1872 bis gener ous loto of reconciliatiou got tho better of his judgement, but when he discovered that he was expected to shovel all the dirt to fill up the bloody chasm he came back to the republican ranks, and expects to stay ! there. Mrs. J. J. White, Dighton’s wor thy and esteemable tailores, expects to move to Lamar, Colorado, the first pf the month. Mrs. White has been with us about two years agd during that time she has made many warm friends in social circles and has, in every instance, pleased her patrons of the tailor shop who all join with | us in wishing her unbounded success in her new location, but shall ever feel her loss from among us. To the people of Lamar we cheerfully recommend her as a first-class mer chant tailor worthy of their confi ! deuce and patronage, and ere she has lived long with them they will find her to bo an agreeable lady and a good citizen.—Dighton [lvans..] Republican. All imported goods under the pres ent tariff, except those on the free Ust, now pay duty, and this duty takes the place of tax and goes to ward defraying the expenses of our Government. Nearly all the expen ses of the general Government are paid in this way; and the people, in cluding the farmers, are relieved to this extent from direct taxation When you repeal the tariff and introduce free (Vade vour revenue will cease, and you will have to provide some other method of procuring the money nec essary to pay these expenses. There is but one way left, and that is by direct taxation in some form or oth er, levied direct on the farmer, me chanic and others. There is no es cape from this.—Ex. The announcement that Mr. B. N. Whiteman, an old democratic war horse of southern Colorado, and at present one of the county commis sioners of that democratic county, Huerfano, has renounced Cleveland and tho party, causes a real sensation in tho democratic camp. Letters have been received in the city from the big democratic lights and lumin ries in Denver, asking if the report of the affair, as published in the Chieftain is correct. We beg to as ! sure Mr. Mathews and the other big l guns of the Denver democracy, that ! the interview with Mr. Whitman, as ! published in the Chieftain, is correct |in all details. Mr. Whitman cannot | and will not swallow free trade and j its evil results to American indus tries and institutions.—Pueblo Chief tain. * Col. Robert G. Ingersoll says in relation to the vote and interest of I the laborer: “When w'ages fall below j a certain point then corao degrada j tion, loss of manhood, serfdom and slavery. If any man had a right to vote for his own interests certainly the man who labors is the man, and every workingman having in his will a part of the sovereignty of this na tion, having within him a part of the law making power, sfionld have the intelligence and courage to vote for bis own interests. lie should vote for good wages; he should vote for a policy that would enable him to lav something by fay the winter of his life, that would enable him to earn enough to educate his children, enough to give him a home and a fireside. lie need not do this in an ger or reyeugo, but because it is just, because it is right, and because the working people are in the majority. They ought to control the world, be cause they have made the world what it is. They have giyen every thing there is of value. Labor plows eyery field, builds every house, fash ions everything of use and when that labor is guided by intelligence the world prosperous.” The Colorrdo Springs Republic says: “Senator John Campbell, of this city, on lus way home from the San Luis Valley the other day, met three traveling salesmen from York state, all Jews, who stated in the coarse ©f conversation that they be longed to communities of Jews in that state, every one of whom voted for Cleveland four years ago. But this year every one of them will vote for Harrison and Morton aud repub lican protection.” Every day the republican ticket grows in strength. Democrats all over the country are deserting the free trade standard of the democratic party and declaring their intention to vote for the protection of Ameri can industries and American labor. This is the resalt of an intelligent explanation of the policy of the re publican party. Intelligence, en lightenment and observation are foes to democracy, ignorance aud preju dice.—Denver Times. Hon. Barclay Henley of Santa Ro sa, California, one of the most prom inent democrats on the Pacific coast, has written a letter to Congressman Morrow' of California in which he renounces all allegiance to his party and declares for Harrison and Mor ton. Mr. Henley was a member of the Forty-eighth and Forty-ninth Congresses from the First California District and has been a life-long dem ocrat. But he says the Mills bill and the free-trade utterances of the democratic leaders are too much for him. He is convinced that the dem ocratic policy, if carried out, would result in the destruction of the Pa cific coast, industries, and he does not intend to give his support to any such party. lie declares that the Pacific coast is particularly a unit against the Mills bill and the democracy, and predicts a greater republican major ity in California, Nevada and Ore gon thanthey have ever before given. There is a striking coincidence of integrity in the careers of the repub lican candidates for the Presidency and Vico-Presidenoy, respectively. When the contractor who was build ing General Benjamin Harrison’s house at Indianapolis was paid in full he ran away, leaving the men unpaid. General Harrison promptly assumed the pay-roll of seventeen men for three weeks’ work, and paid them in full, though ho was under no legal obligation to do so, and had already paid once for every service they rendered him. When the firm, of which Levi P. Morton was a member, failed in bus iness and settled at fifty cents on the dollar, Mr. Morton kept a memoran dum of the amounts due, and when he became able to clear up these ob ligations he waived the legal privil ege given him by the rettlement and paid the remaining fifty cents on the dollar out of his personal income.— New York Press. Hon. George Q. Richmond, of this state, m severing his connection with the democratic party, in his letter to the chairman of the democratic State Committee, is credited with the fol lowing language, which very tersely and correctly expresses the situation. He says therein: “My faith in the sincereity of democratic professions and platforms has entirely exuded, and I bid farewell to those things I loathe, ic., free trade, demonetized silver and Grover Cleveland, and go to those things I most lorq—protec tive tariff, gold and silver as money, the expenditure of our surplus in the United States Treasury iu payment of our National debt, and for great National objects for which a warrant can be found m the Constitution; freedom from Canadian seizure of American fishermen, home rule in Ireland, and for any man whom the Chicago convention may nominate. I am for New England and against Old England; for America against Great Britain and all foreign ualions; lor my country first, last and al ways.” NUMBER 8. The Alhambra. On a hill in the city of Granada, a prin cipal town in the Spanish province of An dalusia, stands on extensive fortress known as the Alhambra, or ‘‘The Ked Castle.” It is the old citadel of the town, and was bnilt by the Moors when they were the masters of Spain. Designed for warlike and de fensive purposes only, it has no pretensiou to architectural grandeur or effect. Its walls, which average thirty feet in height and six feet in thickness, are irregular in form, and composed chiefly of loose stones cemented together, and faced with a plas ter coat. The area enclosed by this fortress is very extensive. It is like a town in it self, having its streets, its church, and con vent; and is said in its palmy days to bavo afforded accomodation to a garrison of 40,- 000 men. Plain and rugged ns is this structure in external appearance, it is the casket which holds one of the richest gems of Hie archi tecture of any age or time. Within its walls are enclosed the remains of the Moor ish palace to which the name of “the Al hambra” is generally applied, although it belong properly to the fortress itself. This palace was built in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and all the beauty and ingenuity of Arabic art were lavished upon its construction. Upon the expul sion of the Moors from Spain, it occasion ally became the residence of the Christian sovereigns, and Charles V. designed to place by its side another pulace, which should eclipse the glories of the nrt of the ’•itidel Moor. But this building, though it was commenced, und some very line por tions of rt are still in existence, was never completed. Its fragments were suffered to decay wlien Granada grew in disfavor as l. residence with the Spanish monarchs, and, when compared with the remains of the Moorish palace, they now show to great disadvantage; the contrast between tl.e iwo styles of nrt and the nature of the workmanship in each is greatly in favor of the Moors. “The walls of the Christian edifice,” says one writer, “are defaced, the paintings faded, the woodwork is decayed, and festoons of cobwebs are seen banging from the ceiling. In the works of the Arabs, on the contrary, the walls remained unaltered, except by the injuries inflicted by the hand of man. The color of the paintings, in which there is no mixture of oil, on removing the particles of dust, ap. pcsir to have preserved their brightness. The beams and wood-work of the ceilings present no signs of decay; no spiders, flies, or other insects are to be seen there. The art of rendering timber and paints durable, and of making porcelain mosaics, arabes ques, and other ornaments, began and end ed in Western Europe with the Moorish ionquerors of Spain.” The remains of the palace of the Alham bra consist of entrance-arches, corridors, and courts, constructed chiefly of marble, and richly adorned with arabesques. The Arabs were forbidden by their religion to use the representation of living figures or animals in their ornamental devices, which cliereforo took the shape of flowers and geometrical forms, sometimes very fanci ful in their nature. The term arabesque was applied to this class of ornament, afi*r the race by which it was chiefly usfA These arabesque ornaments were cast CO moulds, and joined with such extreme nicety that frequently no trace of the point of junction can be detected. They were colored in blue, red, and gold, and the gen eral effect in such edifices as the Alh..nbra is so gorgeous that it cannot be realised by description. An excellent idea of it, how ever, was given by the Alhambra Court in in the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, which was a most artistic imitation of the origi nal, both in style and material, although on a smaller scale. The many courtsand corridors, of the Al hambra were very elaborately decorated, the saloon known as the Hall of Abencer rages, with its beautiful stalacite roof, be ing composed of 6,000 separate pieces fit ting into each other with the greatest ex actitude. Thohall takes ita name from a Moorish family, the last members of which were treacherously murdered in this cham ber, A mark, said to have been left by their blood, is pointed out upon the marble floor; but sceptical people in later timea ave declared that it is nothing but the ~t of water inyregnated with iron.,' - Alcohol and Fowis. A French doctor has experimented on the influence of alcoholic drinks on fowls. He administered to them brand v and absinthe, and found one and all to take so kindly to their unwonted stimulants that he was lorjed to give each bird a limited daily allowance. There was extrbordinary development of cocks' crests, and a rapid and general loss of flesh. The experiments were continued until it appeared that two months’ absinthe drinking sufiiced to kill the strongest cock or hen, while the brandy-d; inkers lived four and a naif months, and the wine-bibbers held on for ten months before they died the drunkard’s death. Comparison of Cities. Tlicro tire, according to the census o<’ 1830, sixty-four cities in the United State** with a population exceeding 30,000; forty four cities with more than -10,000; thirty four with more than f>o,ooo ; twenty-seveu with more than 60,000; twenty-four with more than 73,000; twenty with more than 100,000; four witlt more than 500,000; and with more than 1,000,000. Loudon is way ahead of New York, but the other. English cities fall behind the American cities.
